Following Civilization VI: Rise and Fall, Gathering Storm will be the second official expansion for Civilization VI. This addition to Civ VI introduces a World Congress, holding empire leaders accountable for their actions. Empires can either punish or reward others depending on how they share the world with other leaders. The map is filled with resources ready to exploit, however, gobbling up too many could spark the World Congress to take aggressive action. Gathering Storm is all about consequences and encourages players to work through the modifiers the World Congress enacts along the way.

Metro Exodus

  • Console: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC
  • Release Date: February 15, 2019

A continuation of the Metro series, this is the point in time where the main characters take the massive leap to find a safe place to live. They venture outside the metro tunnels beneath Russia’s icey, irradiated surface. If gamers that played the previous Metro games thought the underground was dangerous, just wait till the rest of Russia is explored.

  • Console: Xbox One, PC
  • Release Date: February 15, 2019
  • Developer: Sumo Digital, Reagent Games, Cloudgine, Certain Affinity, Ruffian Games

Plagued with issues throughout development, news recently broke that the troubles won’t stop once the game is available to the public. The publisher, Microsoft, broke the news to GameSpot that players will not be able to immediately play with their friends in multiplayer on release. Microsoft ensures that players will soon be able to play with friends.

Those excited about picking up Crackdown 3 and exploring this third-person shooter will have the chance to pick up the game for a $1. New subscribers to Game Pass can sign up for a one-month trial for a buck and will be able to play Crackdown 3 at release. Current Game Pass subscribers will also be able to play Crackdown 3 day one.

  • Developer: Ubisoft Montreal

Coming off of Far Cry 5, Ubisoft Montreal is ready to release Far Cry: New Dawn. Based in a shockingly beautiful post-apocalyptic world, 17 years after a global nuclear catastrophe, it’ll be up to the player to restore order. New Dawn actually shares an extremely important similarity to Far Cry 5, they’re both based in Montana. However, this isn’t the Montana Far Cry 5 players have come to know and love. Completely upended by a nuclear catastrophe and reborn anew, there are Highwaymen trying to horde the last of the remaining resources. Players are tasked with putting an end to these Highwaymen and their leaders, the Twins.

Gamers will be able to build and expand their home base, play online co-op, and in classic Far Cry fashion, discover all the new locations around the map. Combining a new take on Far Cry by stepping out of their comfort zone and going straight to a post-apocalyptic landscape, Ubisoft Montreal is still holding true to the essence of Far Cry.

Jump Force

  • Console: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC
  • Release Date: February 15, 2019
  • Developer SPIKE CHUNSOFT

Published by BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment, this crossover fighting game brings together characters from a plethora of manga series. The characters are coming from Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump anthology and nearly anyone that has ever watched an anime or read a manga will know at least one of the names included in the massive character roster.

It uses the 3D battle arenas that anime fighting games commonly use. Flashy, nostalgic, and intersting truly encompasis the image of Jump Force. Still, these anime fighters have the tendency to let fans down but only time will tell if Jump Force will stand out from the norm.

Bonus: Next Week Video Game Release

Next week brings the world one of the most anticipated games of 2019. It may still be early in the year but Anthem has raised eyebrows since it was first announced.

Anthem

  • Console: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC
  • Release Date: February 22, 2019
  • Developer: BioWare, Motive Studios



Some call it “Destiny 3”, others are incredibly excited to get their hands on the full game after trying the beta’s. Either way, Anthem is ready to launch on consoles next week. Using Iron Man-like suits called Javelins, players fly around the beautiful landscape, complete quests, use super-powers and lay waste to monstrous creators on an alien world. Made with cooperative play in mind, it does share similarities to Destiny but the addition of flight and being able to swap and collect all the unique suits truly makes it stand out. A single “Freelancer” can change their Javelins when in the hub world, so one gamer can play all the unique classes without having to level up new characters.

The next couple weeks are big for gamers of all kinds. There are some massive titles just waiting to be downloaded. However, with all these choices, it’ll be important to pick and choose the right game or games that fit a specific individuals taste.

Metro Exodus – Story Trailer and Impressions

Metro Exodus crawls out from beneath the streets of Russia on February 15th, 2019. Deep Silver and 4A Games gave audiences a taste of what’s to come with a brand new Story Trailer, yesterday 1/8/19. New characters, environments, challenges, and dangers await anyone that picks up a copy of Metro Exodus. Players will venture across the nuclear Russian wasteland and embark on a journey that will take them from Moscow to the Summer sands of the Caspian desert.  

The Aurora Heads East

Metro Exodus will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows.

Anna, the protagonist’s Artyom’s wife can be heard narrating the intense trailer. The short, 2 minute thirty second clip was enough to instill the massive amount of stress Artyom’s team of Spartan Rangers face as they explore the decolate Russian wasteland. A broken landscape trying to recover after nuclear devastation is at first all people may see. However, the struggle of this determined crew highlights the importance of searching for some peace in a time of war. Taking solace in a breath of fresh air will still not be enough to protect the Spartan Rangers from the evil that lurks beyond the Metro.

It's a Rough Life Above Ground

Gamers will board the Aurora, a weaponized steam train as Artyom, Anna and Spartan Rangers move East. Searching for more survivors and some kind of civilization, players will need to scavenge, craft, and fight in order to survive.

The press release emphasized that the “gripping story” will elevate classic Metro gameplay with massive, new, non-linear levels. Dynamic weather and day/night cycles are included, expected to enhance the immersion level. The developer also added a “choose your fate” mechanic, allowing players choices to determine if some comrades will live or die.

Pre-Order Bundle Incoming!

Along with the Story Trailer reveal, Deep Silver and Microsoft showed off the Xbox One X Metro Saga Bundle. The bundle is currently available for pre-order and it includes a 1TB Xbox One X Console, all three Metro games; Metro 2033 Redux, Metro: Last Light Redux, and the new Metro Exodus. MSRP for the bundle comes in at $499.00, the usual cost of a 1TB Xbox One X on its own.

The last Metro game to come out, Metro: Last Light released in 2013. Metro Exodus is positioned to be a massive upgrade from the previous title. If the trailer is any indication of how the full game will turn out, Metro fans are in for a thrilling and unforgettable adventure.
