    Hey actually can we talk about that crossbow?

    How the heck is that thing supposed to work?

    There's a crossbow part which doesn't look like it's being used, there's the buzzsaw part, there's the gas canister

    What the hell is going on here?

    I think it's meant to be some kind of tension-driven sawblade launcher.

    Space... what is the point of it? You have no idea.

    I think it's supposed to be a crossbow that shoots buzzsaws, and it spins them up first with the gas thing, but it's currently uncocked.

    Like, that's what I'm thinking too, it just doesn't all come together to actually look like a functional one of those

    Also I feel like propelling saw blades with something that doesn't provide any spin to them is a terrible idea, but maybe that's what the racheting along the flight groove is designed to help with?

    If I had to guess those are the new antagonists, probably let you make your own character, and it's a direct sequel to the last game

    Book of Demons looks really cool but like all games of that genre its on a knife's edge if its good or not

    It is good! It's very much a pared-down, papercraft Diablo-like on rails. It's a little janky and pretty straightforward, but there is definite fun to be had.

    I really hope those aren't the antagonists, because that would fucking suck

    I have zero faith in a Far Cry game to do anything interesting in regards to plot but I really like how those characters look.

    That'll be his church too then

    And while the character model is different (the hair especially), I wouldn't be shocked if that is Grace, the sniper companion. I think she had a sister, too.

    I saw the girl on the left and my mind thinks “Trials of the Blood Dragon” but the person on the right doesn’t fit that thought so much.

    It's also a weapon found in Fallout and Rage, so a common trope in the genre.

    I'm always surprised that people making a post-apocalyptic game don't contact Joerg Sprave for consulting on design ideas for functional and effective homemade weapons. For a relevant example, he has at least a few versions of a saw blade launcher, here's an early model.

    This is fake right? Someone is making fun of Ubisoft for putting out a post-apoc shooter while Rage 2 is in development? Otherwise Ubisoft just totally bit Rage 2's "The Apocalypse, but PINK!" shit.

    Call of Duty is totally a franchise I can see chasing trends. Even Battlefield to an extent. But there's something sad about Counter-Strike trying to jump on the battle royale bandwagon.

    Also, CS:GO is now free-to-play, however there is a "Prime Status" DLC that gives you access to special items and Prime-exclusive matchmaking, everyone who owned the game has been upgraded to Prime.

    Also Danger Zone mode sounds neat? It's a small-scale BR, only 16 players solo and 18 players in duos or trios, with things like a CS-style weapon-buying system that calls in supply drops and objectives around the map that award you bonuses, like blowing open safes and rescuing hostages.

    The actual game itself is pretty brown and standard post apocalypse

    There's been files in-game for stuff referencing this mode and the new melee weapons since before PUBG was popular, it's not them chasing a trend (well, at least not 100% that anyway)

    even though my initial instinctive reaction of yet another venerable shooter franchise selling their soul to battle royale was revulsion

    on second thought, I've always liked how CS feels to play, so maybe... maybe that would be OK

    In my second game of Danger Zone I was shooting at someone and didn't understand why they weren't dying or moving away from my shots. As I moved closer, a dumpster and a wooden fence appeared.

    I'm running on high settings and there isn't even a draw distance setting.

    In the live action trailers, yeah. The big gameplay chunks has pink and neon on the UI and at the edges but at the moment, they've just been showing dessert and facilities for gameplay. There's some cinematic camera stuff that shows off different areas and plenty of multicolored mohawks.

    To be fair, until tonight, we don't know that Far Cry won't look different from Montana or Rage's Wasteland (though with all the drug trip stuff and the flowers that produce it, I could one area at least looking VERY colorful).

    But cover art and marketing-wise, yeah, it feels very similar.

    A launch trailer for Ashen just hit Xbox's Youtube page and disappeared into the wind.

    It ended with "Available Now" so I guess whenever they air it during the TGAs.
