A New Dawn Of War Has Been Announced, Details Tomorrow

A new Dawn of War is coming, though details begin and end right there for now. A full reveal is planned for tomorrow, at which time we’ll find out more about what Sega (and presumably Relic) have in store.

Dawn of War, a Warhammer 40K real-time strategy series, has had two distinctly different incarnations. The first game was a traditional base-building RTS, that eventually gave birth to three substantial expansions.

The sequel dropped the base-building in favor of a smaller, squad based approach (akin to the Company of Heroes series). It spawned two sizable expansions and the Last Stand standalone pack that serves as a co-op horde mode. New DLC for the Retribution expansion was just released in March, which now seems to have been designed to whet appetites for this announcement. The Dawn of War franchise was acquired from THQ (along with Relic) in bankruptcy proceedings. 

While there is no mention of Warhammer 40K or Games Workshop yet, the series has been exclusively associated with that franchise. We’ll have more tomorrow at 7 a.m. Pacific / 10 a.m. Eastern when the game is unveiled.

Our Take
Both Dawn of War games hold up extremely well. I just finished playing the first one, and I’ve started in on the second in earnest. If you have the slightest interest in Warhammer 40K, there are a lot of great games to sink your teeth into, but these are a great starting point.

During Fear The Walking Dead's second season premiere tomorrow on AMC, at 9 p.m. EST, a new trailer for Gears of War 4 will be revealed.

The news comes to light from Gears of War 4's Twitter, where a couple short teasers have been posted in preparation for Sunday night. Gears of War Community Director Adam Fletcher tweeted about the reveal saying, "You guys have no idea what is coming… but it is going to be amazing!" Additionally, a countdown on Gears of War's official website has initiated in anticipation of tomorrow's reveal. You can view the two teaser trailers down below.

The most recent teaser, which was revealed today, shows Gears of War 4's main characters surrounding a statue of Marcus Fenix.

Star Wars: Rogue One Trailer Coming Tomorrow, See The Teaser Now

Star Wars fans speculated that Lucasfilm would likely release the first teaser trailer for Star Wars: Rogue One on Star Wars Day (May 4). In a move no one could have seen coming, the first trailer for the film is debuting tomorrow on ABC's Good Morning America television show.

The announcement came with a brief 11-second teaser video that shows off a new version of the stormtrooper that is likely the shadow trooper that Lucasfilm recently trademarked. Star Wars: Rogue One is not a continuation of Finn and Rey's story from last year's Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and is instead a prequel story that gives us insight into how the Rebel Alliance came into possession of the Death Star plans. Rogue One is slated to open in theaters on December 16. The film is directed by Gareth Edwards.

The Nintendo 64′s Yoshi’s Story Arrives On Wii U Virtual Console Tomorrow

Yoshi's story is the tenth Nintendo 64 game to make its way to the Wii U's Virtual Console.

Released three years after the Super Nintendo's Yoshi's Island, Yoshi's Story was the game that truly separated Yoshi's Island from the Super Mario series of games. The game, which will be available tomorrow, will be the standard $ 9.99 Wii U Virtual Console N64 game price.

We gave the game an 8.5 when it released in 1998.

Our Take
I was never a fan of this sequel, and I am surprised to see it on the Wii U Virtual Console before games like Star Fox 64, Majora's Mask, or Mario Kart.

GOG Adds Adventure Mystery Kôna: Day One To ‘Games In Development’ Roster Tomorrow

In January, we reported that GOG has gotten into the Early Access game. Unlike Steam’s approach though, GOG is curating the games it will offer for sale in pre-release date.

The storefront will add a sixth game to its list tomorrow. Kôna: Day One is an adventure game steeped in mystery. Players take on the role of private detective Carl Faubert as he explores a small town in 1970s Canada.

GOG offers a similar refund policy to Steam, giving players 14 days to refund a purchase. The difference is that the former does not restrict refunds to a specific amount of play time.

Kôna: Day One is due for release sometime before the end of March. The Games in Development version, which features two to five hours of play, will be priced at $ 8. The final release will increase to $ 12.

Our Take
I’m interested in how GOG will evolve its Games in Development program over the long-term. The difference between its curated content and Valve’s more hands-off Early Access program are simply two different ways of reaching the same goal. Whether one system is better won’t be known for a while, but it’s worth paying attention to.

Platinum Pokes Fun At Absurd Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Leaks, Game Reveal Tomorrow

At this point, the only people that haven’t acknowledged that a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game is coming is publisher Activision. Screenshots and achievements have been out in the wild for weeks. At least developer Platinum Games is having some fun with it.

The developer tweeted a not so subtle gif promising an “official leak” on January 26. The tweet carries a hashtag with the obvious TMNT abbreviation and a shot of a pile of pizzas with a sai stuck in them.

We suspect that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan (if that is its final name) will be out in fairly short order. The game was first rumored in November 2015 and received an achievement list on January 4, with screens showing up shortly thereafter.

A sequel to the Michael Bay-produced movie featuring the mutated heroes will be out on June 3, 2016.

Our Take
Games usually don’t get achievement lists until they are nearing release. The only thing that would then hold this one back is brand synergy. Releasing a game alongside the movie is marketing 101 (though that doesn’t mean we will necessarily need to wait that long).
