Train2Game News Devil May Cry 5

Just announced during Microsoft’s Inside Xbox show at Gamescom, Devil May Cry 5 will be releasing on March 8, 2019.

The latest title in the iconic gaming series is coming to the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X, PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, and Windows PC early next year. A brand new trailer showcasing the high-octane stylized action gameplay featuring demon hunter Nero can be viewed below.

The threat of demonic power has returned to menace the world once again in Devil May Cry 5. The invasion begins when the seeds of a “demon tree” take root in Red Grave City. As this hellish incursion starts to take over the city, a young demon hunter Nero, arrives with his partner Nico in their “Devil May Cry” motorhome. Finding himself without the use of his right arm, Nero enlists Nico, a self-professed weapons artist, to design a variety of unique mechanical Devil Breaker arms to give him extra powers to take on evil demons such as the blood sucking flying Empusa and giant colossus enemy Goliath.

The first arm Nico makes for Nero, the Overture Devil Breaker, looks plain in style allowing Nero to wear it inconspicuously throughout the city, but the hidden electric generator inside is enough to shock any demons that come too close. Adding a bit more versatility, the Gerbera Devil Breaker generates an intense heat that can be shot out as a highly powerful shockwave which can be used as a direct attack, reflect enemy projectiles, or even to propel Nero through the air and augment his evasion capabilities.

Combined with melee attacks using his ‘Red Queen’ sword and the long range firepower of his ‘Blue Rose’ handgun, the power of Nero’s Devil Breaker arms add dramatic adrenaline fueled action to the eternal battle between the forces of good and evil that plays out in the streets of Red Grave City. With the arrival of Dante on his flashy motorbike, the pair of demon hunters are set to try and save the city and find out what’s behind this latest demon invasion.

Train2Game News New Fallout Game

Fans were glued to Bethesda’s daylong Twitch stream and were rewarded when the game publisher dropped a bombshell on Wednesday.

After teasing the world by streaming a TV showing a “Please Stand By” test pattern on the Bethesda Twitch channel, the company announced the latest entry in the Fallout universe: Fallout 76.

The annual E3 video game trade show is just weeks away, but it seems Bethesda couldn’t wait that long to make its first big announcement.

The company has also recently updated a few of its biggest franchises, releasing VR and Nintendo Switch versions of Skyrim and Doom, and a VR version of 2015’s Fallout 4.

The short trailer showed nothing more than a resident of one of the game’s unground vaults putting on a Pip-Boy wearable computer and getting ready to celebrate “reclamation day.” His jumpsuit had the number “76” stitched on the back.

No other details were available about the new game, but more information may be available at E3. And this may not be the only new Bethesda game news you’ll be hearing soon. The company is planning an E3 press event in Los Angeles on Saturday, June 10.
