Audiences won’t be saying “I see you” to Ubisoft’s new Avatar video game until sometime in 2022.
Back in 2017, the video game giant announced that a brand new Avatar game was in the works courtesy of Massive Entertainment, the same company that made games like The Division, Far Cry 3, and South Park: The Fractured But Whole. Things have been quiet for years when it comes to status updates about the new project, but on a recent earnings call, Ubisoft revealed that the new Avatar game won’t be coming out as quickly as expected.

You would think that the lesson of all the Jurassic Park movies, and by extension the Jurassic World movies, is that it’s a terrible idea to visit the real, living dinosaurs of Isla Nublar. But Jurassic World Aftermath gives you the opportunity to do exactly that — in virtual reality.

It’s always exciting when filmmakers test the waters in different mediums, especially the medium of video games. Video games are becoming increasingly cinematic, so much so that the lines are being blurred and you’ve got film websites reviewing games. So when a filmmaker makes the leap to video games, it’s not that much of a leap.
Kong: Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Roberts is the latest to make that leap, with a new CG spot for the Marvel’s Avengers video game, the new action role-playing brawler video game co-developed by Crystal Dynamics and published by Square Enix. Watch the Vogt-Roberts-directed CG spot below. Read More »
As independent video games continue to push the creative envelope, they’ll continue to attract top-tier Hollywood talent to participate.

Last year, we learned that a company called Daedalic Entertainment was developing an action-adventure video game called The Lord of the Rings: Gollum, which is set after the pitiful, obsessive creature loses The One Ring to that sneaky little hobbit Bilbo Baggins but before he’s captured by Sauron’s forces.

Let’s start with something you don’t see in a lot of video game reviews: an accessibility disclaimer. There is unprecedented depth to the number of accessibility options within The Last of Us: Part II. This is intended for those visually/sonically impaired, those with physical disabilities (something that I personally am glad is being addressed), or people that simply don’t play video games enough to properly work a controller but that still want to experience a riveting narrative. With that said, I strongly urge someone to read this review even if they have never played a video game before, as maybe this would be a good starting point and that, from this point forward, games will further keep inclusivity in mind and eradicate gatekeeping.
With that out of the way, it must be set upfront that the bar is already set astronomically high for Game of the Decade, as Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us: Part II (directed by the sole writer of the first game, Neil Druckmann, scribing the decidedly more female-focused sequel alongside Westworld‘s Halley Gross) delivers on its mountainous ambition.

Last week, Sony and Insomniac Games shared a teaser trailer for Spider-Man: Miles Morales, the new video game coming to the PlayStation 5. A Sony executive’s comments caused some confusion about whether or not this game will be a sequel or a spin-off, but it turns out it’s technically a little of both – it’s a spin-off that takes place after the events of the PlayStation 4 game Marvel’s Spider-Man.
