- Overload: With a grand view of downtown New Baghdad, the map’s multiple levels and long perimeter site-lines highlight medium to long-range combat.
- Quarantine: The speed picks up in this medium sized map with its tight corners and open areas. The combination allows for any style of gameplay.
- Fracture: Search this map’s large combat areas, cradled on the shelf of a glacier, to take refuge behind wind turbines and heavy equipment.
- Swarm: In this small to medium sized map, take position in war-scarred storefronts that provide plenty of cover over the streets of Seoul, South Korea, or flank the enemy through close quarter interiors in the center of the map.

The Tomb Raider reboot back in 2013 revitalized the long running series and returned the famed archeologist to peak gaming prominence. Rise of the Tomb Raider was announced at last year’s E3, but we only saw the unfaltering heroine scarred from her traumatic experience in Yamatai. But this time we see that Lara has gotten back on that horse and is on a brand new adventure in Siberia. Lara, accompanied by Jonah Maiava, is in search of an ancient city called Kitezh, which Lara believes to hold the secrets to immortality.
Rise of the Tomb Raider is available for preorder now and will arrive on store shelves exclusively on Xbox One this November 10th, 2015.
Microsoft’s new focus on supporting PC gaming has also influenced the direction Microsoft is taking the Xbox One, and it’s for the better. Fallout 4 has now announced that mods will work on Xbox One right out the box which could pave the way for more titles to follow suit. With the Xbox Game Preview, now Xbox players can help indie developers build and improve their game by granting early access, much like Steam Early Access, but with an Xbox twist.
Players who see a game they are interested in can play a free trail of the title before they pay. If you like what you experienced, you can support the developer by purchasing early access versions of the game and can give feedback to help shape the final release. Games like The Long Dark is actually available to try out right now as you can gain early access today! They have also announced that Day Z will also come to Xbox Game Preview later this year.
One of my favorite series is making a return and we call start being drawn to death again like a moth to a flame early next year!
What we can assume is that in some form of continuity, Dark Souls III will take place in the same universe as the previous Dark Souls title, but perhaps take place in the far future. The series started with the beginning, Lord Gwyn began the Age of Fire and brought about prosperity, but soon the Curse of the Undead spread across all that the light touched. From that point on, it had been debated and discussed time and again whether or not that Dark Souls even has a “Good Ending” to begin with, and so brought about even deeper interpretations of the lore.
From Lordran to Drangleic, the settings were vastly different, set in different times, separated by centuries of conflict and war. What they had in common however was the Curse, the mark that the Undead bear, and perhaps even the journey that these choosen undead undergo in both games. Will these connections finally be explained in Dark Souls III? Or are you even playing as an inflicted Undead?? We do not know any of the answers to these questions, just that only embers remain.
But what isn’t so ambiguous and shrouded in mystery is that Hidetaka Miyazaki is back as Dark Souls III’s director! His being involved with the game is a surefire guarantee that this will be an adventure of a lifetime… or countless deaths.
