New video shows concept art for the upcoming Trine 2 DLC

Trine 2 is an action, adventure, puzzler, mixed up with breath taking backdrops and three well developed characters. Each of the puzzles you encounter are designed to be solved using the special abilities of every character. This is handled by allowing you to switch through all three characters at the press of a button in single player or play in co-op allowing each one to be controlled by another live person, which has it’s ups and downs as we said back in December. That has not stopped the game from creating an almost cult like fan base, and Frozenbyte Games has definitely taken notice to this.

Since February we have been teased with news of DLC coming our way this summer for Trine 2. Making sure to keep fans enthralled Frozenbyte Games, have made sure to slowly release information through interviews and video about the upcoming expansion. In this new making of video we get a glimpse at some of the concept art, from Juhani Jokinen, in several stages of development. We also get a brief description as to what role concept art plays and why it’s so important.

Inside Xbox gives us a look at Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

The latest edition of Inside Xbox gives us a sneak peak at Valve’s addictive and uber-competitive shooter, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. The video (which can be viewed above) shows off over three minutes of gameplay footage, while Valve’s very own Chet Faliszek talks about what’s new in Global Offensive and what makes it different from the rest of today’s shooter market. Among the topics discussed are the game’s new Demolition Mod, its skilled based matchmaking system which promises to open the game up to newcomers like never before.

The original version of Counter-Strike launched in the year 2000, instantly pulling in millions of players with its fast, frantic skill based gameplay and high levels of competition. The game has received continuous support from Valve since its launch with frequent updates still being released twelve years later. Global Offensive is the latest version of the game, and represents the first time that the Counter-Strike franchise has been brought to consoles since the takeoff of online gaming services like Xbox Live. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is currently slated to bring a new level of competitiveness to XBLA this summer.

The Banner Saga hits Kickstarter target for XBLA port

The latest indie game to go down the Kickstarter route, The Banner Saga has now raised enough money to allow them to develop ports for XBLA and PSN. The game is described as a role playing game merged with turn-based strategy, wrapped into an adventure mini-series about vikings. The beautifully hand-drawn game is being developed by Austin based company Stoic which was founded by ex Bioware staff Alex Thomas, Arnie Jorgensen and John Watson. The team initially wanted $100,000 to get the game off the ground and complete a PC version but the project surpassed $700,000 allowing them to develop for other platforms and include multiplayer functionality. Of course they will still need to find a publisher to allow them to sell through Xbox Marketplace but The Banner Saga is certainly one to watch for.

Meet The Warrior in new Realms of Ancient War trailer

Focus Interactive, the publishers behind dungeon crawler Realms of Ancient War or just R.A.W. if you’re feeling particularly brutal, have released a new trailer showcasing the Warrior. The Warrior is the first of 3 playable characters in the game which also includes a Wizard and Rogue, and is described as:

Courageous, hot-headed and expert in close combat, the Warrior thrives at the very heart of the battle. Swinging his dual blades with power and speed, his powerful melee attacks are devastating, sometimes allowing him to strike down dozens of enemies at once! And when his health goes bad, bloody rage embraces him and make him even more powerful, more resilient, enabling him to cause even more damage…

Realms of Ancient War is being developed by Wizarbox and said to include drop in, drop out co-op. No details on pricing just yet but it’s expected to release on XBLA Q2 this year.

Trials Evolution’s “homage to Limbo”

It’s but a day until Trials Evolution screams onto Xbox Live Arcade and amid ardent anticipation, Gamespot has snagged fresh footage of the Limbo-inspired track crafted in the game’s beefy track editor. Level designer Lee Rowland remarks on the track’s inception, how Playdead feel about it and the use of sound in his “homage to Limbo“. If nothing else, the two and a half minute clip demonstrates the raw capability of Evolution’s track editor as well as Rowland’s keen eye for the finer details; the spider cameo and falling of the ‘O’ in ‘HOTEL’ two particularly endearing sights.

Trials Evolution launches tomorrow (April 18) for 1200MSP.

Gotham City Impostors-related announcement coming April 18

Monolith Productions, masters behind Gotham City Impostors, will be making an amazing announcement April 18. Beyond the fact that the announcement will involve the amazing multiplayer shooter, it’s hard to tell what it will involve. The only hints we get is an extremely rude parrot and the “Don’t get a parrot, shoot one” poster. Does the abundance of parrot hint at a pirate theme, a bird theme, or is it just a red herring? Whatever Monolith is planning, we’ll be anxiously awaiting the reveal.

Friday Top Five: Top five XBLA trailers

There’s nothing more enticing than that tease, that pinch, that itch you get from a fantastic trailer. With retail games, so many of them get these bloated budgets and the trailers get absolutely insane, but XBLA has to rely on their creativity! Their imagination! Their sense of wonder!… And yes, money also. However, not every trailer is amazing, but the best ones combine with some great games and catchy trailer ideas to really entice you. This week’s Friday Top Five will be about these beautiful, and often evil, displays of awesome, wallet-attacking footage. We were looking for that marriage of gameplay, story, presentation and shameless plugging, and we’ve found the best examples of it.
