Leave Your Limits with Forza Horizon 2’s New Live Action Trailer
For the launch of Forza Horizon 2, Xbox and twofifteenmccann developed a live-action trailer titled “Leave Your Limits,” which truly embodies the spirit of the game. The trailer begins in the playfully nostalgic world of an electric slot car track. The all-new 2014 Lamborghini Huracán – which will appear exclusively in Forza Horizon 2 this fall – leads the charge of cars breaking free from the track and driving hard through the coastline, vineyards, and towns of southern Europe. The Italian song featured in the spot, Adriano Celentano’s “Prisencolinensinainciusol,” helps to bring the fun and freedom of the game to life. twofifteenmccann partnered with director Adam Berg of Smuggler and MPC to lead the production which was filmed on location on of the some of the world’s most famous driving roads.
Assassin’s Creed: Unity Gets a New Co-op Trailer
Yes, Assassin’s Creed: Unity – the next chapter in Ubisoft’s acclaimed action-adventure saga – is coming to Xbox One on November 11. And this time out, new protagonist Arno Dorian can draft some assistance on his quest for vengeance in French Revolution-era Paris. Up to four players can band together to tackle many of Unity’s story-based missions as a team, as this brand-new trailer beautifully demonstrates. Now, as you’ll see, these guys aren’t exactly subtle – they seem to favor the “kick in the door and skewer everyone” approach. Nevertheless, you and your online friends can opt for a wide range of approaches in Unity’s multiplayer, whether you prefer to stick to the shadows or go right for the face. Either way, it looks like a bloody good time. But enough from us; check out the new Assassin’s Creed: Unity trailer for yourself!
D4 and the Evolution of the Noir Adventure Game
Japanese mystery games tend to sit somewhere on a rather vast spectrum, ranging from the profoundly serious to the patently absurd. The work of Hidetaka Suehiro – known to his fans as Swery65 – occupies a very specific part of that spectrum, with a smart, surrealist tone all his own. Swery65 is directing the upcoming Xbox One title D4, which launches on September 19 as a $14.99 digital download for Xbox One. And don’t worry: Swery65’s signature sense of humor (as seen in 2010 cult classic Deadly Premonition) is on full display here. We had the chance to chat with the director before he spends the coming days showing off D4 at the Tokyo Game Show.
The Guardians of the Galaxy Game You Never Knew Existed
Faithful “Guardians of the Galaxy” fans, disappointed that their favorite summer blockbuster didn’t get a dedicated tie-in console game, will want to take a closer look at the upcoming Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes (2.0 Edition). In addition to launching with Avengers- and Spider-Man-themed Play Sets, the toys-to-life follow-up also support a standalone “Guardians of the Galaxy” adventure on day one. Bundled with sweet-looking Star-Lord and Gamora sculpts, the six-to-eight hour, story-driven campaign can be tackled with the capable pair of cosmic antiheroes or their sold-separately pals Groot, Rocket Raccoon, and Drax the Destroyer. The film’s setting, storyline, and secondary characters figure prominently into the Play Set (Cosmo the dog is a freaking mission-giver!), but our recent demo – featuring all five characters – was squarely focused on showcasing the Sakaaran-slaying quintet’s superpowers and special abilities.

Why Destiny's Endgame Is Just the Beginning
Bungie’s brand-new Destiny includes quite a bit of content beyond its multi-planet campaign. To wit: Raids are six-player missions that open up when players hit level 20. There are no waypoints to tell you where to go and what to do; they're also friends-only, with no matchmaking, meaning that you’ll need to gather five friends who own the game, and sync your schedules in order to play them. They’ll have you struggling your way through the most challenging dungeons, fighting the biggest bosses – and they reward you with the best loot and upgrades the game has to offer. They are very challenging, and demand communication and cooperation from the entire team.
