Howdy fellas, it’s that time of the week again – to set your sights on a hoard of entertaining new video game trailers! There’s a lot of good ones this week. Some detail the plots of their respective games and some even show a bit of skin.
This week we’ve got videos from: Spec Ops: The Line, Lollipop Chainsaw, Battlefield 3, Confrontation, EURO 2012, The Witcher, Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion, and Ghost Recon Future Soldier.
Featured in the new Spec Ops: The Line trailer is a very grim and depressing post apocalyptic Dubai. The music used is similar to recent movie trailers, and it actually sets the ambiance of the narrative well. There wasn’t much in terms of story shown in the previous trailer for Spec Ops: The Line (though it had plenty of great action) – but this new “Narrative” trailer definitely does the game’s story justice.
Spec Ops: The Line releases June 26, 2012 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
The award winning Battlefield 3 has a new trailer out this week for its rent-a-server feature. The new spring update was announced earlier this week and a rundown of what it will feature is shown within this new video – basically the ability for console gamers to rent multiplayer servers. You can rent and set up the server with ease with tons of customization abilities.
Battlefield 3‘s rent-a-server feature is now available!
Anyone waiting for Confrontation can wait no more. The official launch trailer has just been released signifying the game’s debut. Those unfamiliar with the title, Confrontation is set in the fictional world of Aarklash. Gamers will embody the leader of a troup of elite warriors to infiltrate enemy territory to stop an evil threat. Players must develop their squads and create tactics to destroy their enemies!
Confrontation is available now for the PC.
Fútbol hooligans who don’t get enough with FIFA in their life, can expect more adrenaline rushing sport in Euro 2012, a download for FIFA ’12. Soccer is a huge deal outside of the States, and any fan of the sport may find Euro 2012 enticing. The DLC is complete with 53 teams, competing in eight new stadiums as well as two new modes: “Football Club Challenge Mode” and “Exhibition Mode.” The trailer is quick and to the point, no need for words, or narration, just all-out soccer madness.
The Euro 12 DLC for FIFA ’12 will be available April 24.
Players who don’t like spoilers may want to skip this next video – which recaps The Witcher for the release of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition. The trailer is for gamers who want to relive the first game to remember everything that has happened – or for new gamers who just want to jump into the franchise with part two (though the creators stress that the video is not necessary for enjoying the sequel).
The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition will be available for Xbox 360 and PC on the 17th of April.
A very informative, cinematic trailer for Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion showcases a very slow, big picture look at what a futuristic space battle could potentially look like. Most of the footage we’ve already seen from a previous trailer roundup before, but this time a narration of the story is laid-out to help players understand the plot.
Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion will be on on the PC by June 2012.
New information pertaining to Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier‘s “Guerilla Mode” have also been released. We’ve previewed Future Soldier’s Guerilla mode – but now we get to see the whole picture.
- You and your fellow Ghosts will face waves of enemies and utilize real-life techniques inspired by U.S Army counter-insurgency experts.
- Enter, capture and secure a designated area, then prepare for up to 50 waves of enemies with increasing difficulty.
- Compete against friends in online leaderboards.
- Play with up to 3 other friends online, or play on the same console and TV with the 2 player split screen mode.
Watch the trailer below:
Ghost Recon: Future Soldier releases on PS3 and Xbox 360 on May 22 in North America, the 24th in Europe, and 25th in the UK.
Saving the best video for last, and any guy will know why, is Lollipop Chainsaw. This little game has been popping up a lot with brand new trailers featuring a Lollipop Chainsaw game tour bus, the music from the game, and now the official real-life Juliet aka Jessica Nigri. (Commence swooning.) From caked on spleen to totally clean, Juliet is able to wash away those nasty stains with Zom-Be-Gone, a new “laundry detergent” brought to you by Lollipop Chainsaw. This is a great, fun video fans don’t generally see tied in with marketing – and it just hits the right note for the tone of the game. Good work Grasshopper Manufacture!
Lollipop Chainsaw will be out June 12, 2012 for the PS3 and Xbox 360.
That’s it for the roundup. A great medley of fun trailers to take a break from your daily routine. Which game are you most looking forward to?
