A Metal Gear Solid tabletop game just got announced

Please don't wake me up because surely I'm dreaming. Metal Gear Solid: The Board Game was just announced by IDW games and Konami and is set to release next year.

Revealed on the IDW Games website, featuring game design by Emerson Matsuuchi, the MGS Board Game will include miniatures designed by Francesco Orrù and see comic artist Kenneth Loh handling the art.

Metal Gear Solid: The Board Game will see players take on the roles of "Solid Snake, Meryl Silverburgh, Dr. Hal “Otacon” Emmerich, and Gray Fox the Cyborg Ninja". Players will have to cooperate with each other and "use their unique skill sets to avoid detection as they complete objectives across multiple campaign scenarios". The game is also said to feature "a highly dynamic A.I. system and sandbox gameplay" leading to missions that "can be completed in multiple ways and will always play out differently".

IDW Publishing’s VP of New Product Development, Jerry Bennington said "Having partnered with Konami in the past to adapt Metal Gear Solid into comics and produce all new stories in the Silent Hilluniverse, we are extremely excited to be partnering again to bring Metal Gear Solid to a new gaming medium: tabletop. We know this a beloved franchise with a die-hard fan base, and as such we’re putting all of our energy into producing a premium gaming experience that is exciting to play over and over again.”

New Shadow Of The Tomb Raider DLC coming next week

New Shadow Of The Tomb Raider DLC coming next week

The latest DLC for Shadow of the Tomb Raider, titled The Pillar is releasing next week and will see players "venture into the Path of the Huracan to discover the truth behind the legend of the Maya apocalypse".

We thought Shadow of the Tomb Raider was a bit of a step back for the series and in our review said that "the finale to this trilogy is dragged down into the mud by the failings of its narrative and the depictions of its once celebrated character". It's nonetheless nice to see Eidos Montreal still supporting the game with additional content.

Check out the video below for an in-depth look at the making of The Pillar and a look at what players can expect from the DLC.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 coming exclusively to Nintendo Switch

There were a few big announcements at last week's Game Awards, but one announcement, in particular, seemed to come out of left field. Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order was announced and surprisingly will be exclusive to the Nintendo Switch in 2019.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 was originally released all the way back in 2009 and fans (and myself included) have been hungry for more ever since.

Check out the details from Marvel below:

Farming Simulator 19 Sells 1 Million Copies

Farming Simulator 19 developers, Giants Software have announced a rather impressive milestone for their ever popular sim. In just ten days the game has sold a whopping 1 million copies, which is made even more impressive by the fact that the release window was full of triple-A blockbuster games.

Christian Amman, CEO of GIANTS Software stated “It's incredible to see the impact of the team's hard work. Farming Simulator 19 offers so many new opportunities and our players are thrilled about them. Never before has a Farming Simulator game reached the one million mark so quickly and we are proud and happy that so many players join us on this amazing journey.”

GIANTS Software have attributed the games phenomenal success to "a graphical overhaul, new gameplay possibilities, and the addition of John Deere to the roster of vehicles", which certainly help to add an extra layer of that sweet simulation authenticity fans of the genre look for.

The Outer Worlds gameplay looks amazing

While there were certainly some interesting announcements at The Game Awards last week, there was one game in particular that stole the show for me. developed by Obsidian Entertainment, the fine folks who made Fallout: New Vegas and Pillars of Eternity, The Outer Worlds is a "single-player first-person sci-fi RPG".

Players will find themselves "lost in transit while on a colonist ship bound for the furthest edge of the galaxy" and will "explore the furthest reaches of space and encounter various factions, all vying for power". Obsidian has stated that "the character you decide to become will determine how this player-driven story unfolds. "

The preview gameplay comes via Gameinformer and shows off the games gorgeously detailed environments and some of the systems at play in the retro-futuristic looking RPG.

Mortal Kombat 11 releasing April 2019

At this year's Game Awards event, NetherRealm Studios Director and Mortal Kombat ko-founder Ed Boon made an appearance on stage to give an award, which quickly turned out to be a surprise announcement for Mortal Kombat 11.

The ultra-violent trailer shows an evil (red lighting always = evil) Raiden duking it out with a slightly different looking Scorpion in a vicious bout that ends with our favourite yellow ninja a little light-headed and decidedly dead. Suddenly another Scorpion appears wearing his classic costume as he proceeds to rip poor Raiden to shreds. The trailer then cuts to a mysterious character with a giant sand hour-glass, so it's highly likely we'll be seeing some more time-bending tomfoolery first introduced in 2011's series reboot.

“It’s exciting to finally announce Mortal Kombat 11 and showcase what the team has been working on,” said Ed Boon, Creative Director, NetherRealm Studios. “Our Custom Character Variation System opens up an infinite amount of options for players to personalize their favorite fighters. We can’t wait until January when we’ll be showing more of the game."
