The latest trailer for Metal Gear Survive shows off lots of zombie destroying action with the song Ballroom Blitz joyfully orchestrating the violence.

It's... weird. But also maybe the right call? This trailer definitely does not make it feel like a Metal Gear, and maybe that's the sort of marketing this game needs. Survive uses Metal Gear Solid V's gameplay, but it's not a Metal Gear game.

We recently got a chance to play a bunch of the single-player, which you can see here. Overall, we're optimistic about Metal Gear Survive, but absolutely recognize that it won't be the same without Hideo Kojima's involvement. Metal Gear Survive is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on February 20.

The open world One Piece game, subtitled World Seeker, has a collection of new screenshots, but not many new details.

We know the game will be open world, which is exciting considering one of One Piece's strongest elements is the fiction of its world and the world-building. We also know you will play as Luffy, he will have access to his gum-gum abilities like the gum-gum rocket (which he will able to use like a grappling hook to move around the world), the elephant gatling gun, and the gum-gum UFO, and we know you will be exploring castle, farm, city, and beach locations, though the game's press release does promise more.

We know platforms, too – PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The date is a vague 2018, unfortunately. You can check out all the screens in the gallery below. For more on One Piece: World Seeker, head here.

We Happy Few's developer, Compulsion Games, released a few new tidbits about the dystopian game, including a look at a new playable character, Sally. The devs say in a new video that they're taking player feedback seriously, and have retooled the story to incorporate bigger moments earlier on. Those changes mean players will have to be a little more patient, however.

The game was originally set for an April 13 release, but it's now been pushed to sometime this summer. The video below explains the decisions in greater detail. More interestingly, it shows off Sally. From what little we can see, it appears as though she's able to bewitch her enemies. Then again, maybe she just likes to dance?

The Yakuza series has given players a wealth of optional minigames and activities over the years, and Yakuza 6: The Song of Life keeps that streak alive. A new trailer for the upcoming game shows how Kiryu can fill his days managing a cat cafe, playing Virtua Fighter V, putting on a wetsuit and spear-fishing, and much more.

Take a look at the clip below for a rapid-fire look at some of the game's diversions. Some of them are bound to be familiar to fans, such as darts, the hostess club, and the batting cage. Others are new, such as the ability to play Puyo Puyo and Virtua Fighter V in arcades, and babysitting. It looks like Kiryu is good at silencing his enemies, as well as unhappy infants. Who knew?

Yakuza 6: The Song of Life is coming to PlayStation 4 on March 20.

A new character trailer has dropped for Dragon Ball Fighter Z's God of Destruction of Universe 7, Beerus.

In the new trailer, Beerus, walking in alongside his attendant Whis, beats down on Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Goku. Beerus uses orbs and powerful ki blasts to both keep the opponent away and bounce them around like a plaything (or a ball of yarn).

(Please visit the site to view this media)

Beerus was one of the few characters designed before Dragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama was brought in on the Battle of Gods movie to design and help write, as explained in the March 2013 issue of Japanese magazine GetNavi. Toriyama misunderstood the name, originally meant to sound like the Latin word Virus, and assumed the name was a pun on the word Beer. As such, further characters related to Beerus, such as Whis, Chamba, and Vados all continued that alcohol theme.

Dragon Ball Fighter Z is scheduled for release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on January 26. A beta for the game is running from January 14 to January 16, starting a day earlier for preorders, on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. You can download the client now to start as soon as the beta begins.

Vampyr, the newest project from Dontnod, will release its first episode on January 18, with a teaser trailer from the developers dropping today.

The new behind the scenes trailer is a short teaser for what you can expect from the full game. The narrative director, Stéphane Beauverger, explains that the player encounters numerous other people during the story. These people tell the protagonist their thoughts, feelings, lives, and come to him for help, and it's up to the player whether you make them your prey or not.

Check out the teaser trailer below. You can find our preview of Vampyr from E3 right here.

Dragon Ball FighterZ comes out later this month, and Bandai Namco is continuing to drop trailers as we inch closer to its release. The newest teaser centers around Hit, a stoic assassin.

In the trailer, we see him fight against Goku. Hit is a character from Dragon Ball Super, similar to Goku Black. As an incredibly quick and deadly fighter, he puts up quite the fight. Check out the teaser below.

Konami has released a new single-player trailer for Metal Gear Survive, the first Metal Gear game since the publisher's split with Hideo Kojima.

In the past, the trailers and footage from the game have emphasized the Survive aspect of the title and this trailer, despite focusing on the game's single-player, does much the same. The protagonist slices trees to make weapons and fight off the zombies that make up the alternate universe Mother Base.

You can check out the trailer below. Metal Gear Survive will run a beta on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 starting January 18 through January 21, which won't require PlayStation Plus but will require Xbox Live Gold. The full game launches on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on February 20.

When UFC 3 was officially revealed back in November, we learned a little bit about its career mode, but the focus was largely on the retooled striking and animations. Now, EA Vancouver has pulled back the curtain to reveal the full breadth of the overhauled career mode that has you taking your fighter from young prospect to the greatest of all time.

As mentioned in our initial piece on UFC 3, the new career mode is all about bringing your character up the ranks to become the greatest of all time. When the team looked at what it could improve upon from UFC 2, it noted that it provided players with a long-term goal of becoming champion, but in the meantime, players just had to go out and win to climb the ranks to eventually achieve that goal. To make the mode more engaging, players now have short-term goals as they build toward the ultimate goal of becoming the GOAT. This comes in the form of incremental progress made toward your status as GOAT, as well as achieving goals for each contract. This means that regardless of where players are in their career, they can achieve goals set by the game. If you perform well and achieve objectives in your contract, it gives you a better contract next time, earning you more fight money, which can be used to afford to train at better gyms and improve your fighter's attributes. If the term "fight...

Bandai Namco has released a new character trailer for Goku Black on the eve of Dragon Ball FighterZ's release.

Prospective gamers can get a glimpse of Goku Black teaming up with Future Zamasu for a devastating attack, and that's not all.

The game comes out for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on January 26.

For more Goku Black, take a look at this previous footage.

In the latest character trailer for Dragon Ball FighterZ, Vegeta shows off his Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan form.

The new form adjusts Vegeta's moveset to focus on power moves and adjusts his supers for different attacks and angles than his Super Saiyan form.

Some of you might be wondering why Vegeta is blue and why anyone would possibly name something Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan. I can't answer the second one, but I'll cover the first. When Goku confronted Beerus and got really, really badly defeated, it was reasoned that a ritual involving six Saiyans could transform him into the Super Saiyan God, a form with pinkish skin and red hair. It worked and Goku was able to fight more evenly against the God of Destruction. The blue form, Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan, is the Super Saiyan form of that God ascension, which both Goku and Vegeta achieved after training.

It is never explained how and when Vegeta became a Super Saiyan God as he handwaves it by saying he did it through training as well and no one questions it. In Dragon Ball Super, the form is simply shortened to Super Saiyan Blue, but FighterZ is using the Return of Freeza movie name of Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan.

The short trailer for the form is below.

Dragon Ball FighterZ is releasing on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on January 26.

Capcom has release new Monster Hunter: World footage, as well as the first details on its post-launch plans. The new trailer features several of the game's Elder Dragons, including the steel dragon Kushala Daora and the flaming Teostra.

In addition to those creatures, the clip shows Dodogma, a wyvern that feeds on rocks. After chomping on stone, his body converts the digested bits into an explosive substance that he can spit at his foes.

PlayStation 4 players will be able to join in the final beta for the game starting January 18, and running through January 22. This last look at the game before its January 26 release date features the quests that were available in previous betas, as well as a chance to take on the Nergigante

As far as post-launch content goes, the first free title update will arrive in the spring. It adds the ravenous monster Deviljho, who feeds on anything unlucky (or stupid) enough to get in his way.

Bandai Namco has released the intro video for Dragon Ball FighterZ, which is mostly made up of quick cuts and zoom-ins on the characters.

The intro is using the in-game graphics to show off the entire roster of characters, obviously starting with Goku but then both Gohans get billing behind Trunks which is just crazy to me. You can check out the trailer below. If you want to get hands-on with the game ahead of its release, you can check out the open beta on PS4 and Xbox One starting on January 14.

Dragon Ball FighterZ is scheduled to release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on January 26.

The team behind Star Citizen's single player campaign, Squadron 42, has released over an hour of footage of the long-delayed story mode.

Star Citizen's story mode boasts a Hollywood cast, including Mark Hamill as the main character, The X-Files' Gillian Anderson, and Gary Oldman. Hamill, sporting a beard yet again, is referred to as "Old Man" and his interactions with the player shape the story.

Squadron 42 was announced in Cloud Imperium Games' Kickstarter for Star Citizen years ago with an intended release in October 2016. It currently has no release window. Star Citizen as a whole has exceeded $200 million crowdfunding.

You can check out the single player video below.

In a developer diary for Soulcalibur VI, producer Motohiro Okubo explains what makes this reboot version of Sophitia so special.

Okubo kind of frames Sophitia as Soulcalibur's Ryu, making her a good character for novices who fights with an orthodox style. Okubo noted that Sophitia and Mitsurugi were the first characters made for the game and every other character was built around their style and visuals.

Check out the developer diary below. Soulcalibur VI is scheduled for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in 2018.

Far Cry 5 is trading its exotic locales of the past for something closer to home, but that doesn't mean things get any less crazy. In the newest trailer, we're treated to some chaotic action while given an overview of how The Resistance works.

In Far Cry 5, an extremist cult has taken over Hope County, Montana. Here, you join forces with The Resistance, who are fighting back with all the firepower they've got. Each time you free a region that was once under the control of the cult, your resistance meter increases.

We also get to see what it's like to have beasts on your side, like mountain lions and bears, who you can have attack foes at your command. Watch the trailer for yourself below.

A new PlayStation Underground video shows off some gameplay of the upcoming remake of Secret of Mana. With a fresh coat of paint and a fully-voiced cast, this remake reimagines the 1993 classic for modern audiences.

In the video, we get to see a playthrough of a dungeon, along with a boss fight at the end. We also get a glimpse of the local multiplayer, a new feature that allows you to complete quests with up to two other friends. We also see characters wearing DLC costumes, such as a Moogle costume.

Watch the thirteen minute video below.

Rather than focusing on ferocious beasts, this trailer for Monster Hunter: World is instead centered around Palicos. These furry feline companions make a return, and this time they can be fully customized.

In the trailer below, we see that we can modify the color of their fur and choose their tiny clothes. Even small details like eye size, patterns, ear shapes, and voice can be adjusted to your liking. Palicos are trusty companions during your journeys, and can help you out if you're stuck in a difficult battle. Outside of aiding you in your journeys, they can also cook you up delicious meals. For example, in the trailer we see a Palico who happens to be an expert chef.
