The handheld adventures of Kratos, an "old-school" cyberpunk FPS, and a historical shooter is what's in store for gamers this week.
Even with Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and a messload of other triple-A titles either already out or just a week within gamer's grasp, new titles are still flowing through the September pipeline. First up is the remastered versions of the PSP God of War titles. Compiling both God of War: Chains of Olympus and God of War: Ghost of Sparta, these two titles have sharper fidelity and can be played in 3D mode. The PS3 compilation will be out tomorrow on Asian shelves.
Next up is the PC shooter Hard Reset, developed by Flying Wild Hog Studios which consist of members from renowned studios like People Can Fly and CD Projekt Red. The game will be a throwback to '90s-style first-person shooters where regenerating health, gun reloading, and exploration wasn't necessary and pure mob action took centre stage. Players will shoot their way out of a cyberpunk noir setting as a guy named Fletcher who has to unlock a conspiracy involving a corporation he worked with. The game will be out on digital distribution sites like Steam tomorrow.
Finally, gamers can also check out Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad, the sequel to the first Red Orchestra that was originally a mod using Unreal Tournament 2004's engine. Billed as a historic first-person shooter, the game takes place in Stalingrad where players get to experience conflicts from both the Germans and the Russians. In addition to single-player mode, players can partake in a 32-versus-32 multiplayer matches involving capturing and holding objective points.
