A few good video game trailers slipped through the cracks this week, but luckily we’ve got them all wrangled up and ready to go. There’s a good helping of anticipated games here that shower the eyeballs with lots of new footage. If action is what you’re looking for, it’s action that we’ve got this week in the roundup!
We’ve got trailers this week from Ghost Recon:Future Soldier, Crystal Chronicles, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition, Max Payne 3, DmC: Devil May Cry, Super Monday Night Combat, the Game of Thrones RPG, Mortal Kombat (Vita) and Prototype 2.
Ghost Recon: Future Soldier is here to give gamers a sneak peak at its first mission. Here we see a great introduction to weapon customization and tactical espionage — Solid Snake would be proud. The video doesn’t provide a complete walkthrough, but just enough to get a taste of what the game offers. If this slower paced walkthrough isn’t satisfying enough, check out the multiplayer trailer.
Square Enix has debuted the first Crystal Conquest trailer. This preview of the browser-based real-time multiplayer strategy game is fairly short and doesn’t give many details, but it’s interesting to watch. According to Andriasing, it gives the user the chance for 20 vs 20 battles. We’ll just have to wait until more details for the game come out to get a better look at what we’re dealing with. In the mean time, check out the trailer:
Crystal Dynamics is set for an April 2012 release in Japan, no word on a world wide release yet.
The new trailer for The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition provides a closer look at Geralt of Rivia, the witcher users command in the game. We are presented with a cinematic monologue of Geralt leaving a village to enter a dark forest to demonstrate some of his abilities along with his big shiny sword. The trailer leaves us with a bit of suspense at the end!
The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition will launch for PC and Xbox 360 on April 17th.
Max Payne 3 trailers are coming in hard and fast, and we only have about a month to go before its release. Rockstar Games has been showcasing all the artillery at Max’s disposal through a “weapons” trailer series. We were recently shown one focused on SMGs and this new trailer is all about shotguns. There was also a recent video that displayed the updated bullet time action. Watch the “Shotguns” trailer below:

Anyone who’s missed Devil May Cry may get a little antsy after they check out this new trailer for DmC. We haven’t seen a new glimpse of the game since this past holiday season, but the wait has been worth it. This trailer is full of awesome action sequences, vulgarity, and some light humor. Dante is ready to slay some demons:

Winter has ended, but a new Game of Thrones RPG trailer is here. It is not as action packed as the “This is War” trailer from before, but fans of the franchise may get a little giddy. This brand new story is focused on Mors, Sworn Brother of the Night’s Watch and Alester, a Red Priest who are in search of redemption.
Game of Thrones will be heading to shelves in May 2012 for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. It will debut in the UK and Ireland in early June.
