Rumor: God Of War 4 Coming?

Oh I really hope this is for God of War 4!

Posted on the Playstation facebook page, the image above teases a reveal on April 19, by the looks of the image and the popular consensus about the image is it could be a reveal for a new God of War.

The colours of the picture do strike a resemblance to those used for previous God of War ad campaigns and vengeance is Kratos’ thing, so it seems like a pretty safe bet right? I hope so.

Medal of Honor: Warfighter In Action

Get your first glimpse of Medal of Honor: Warfighter in action with this gameplay trailer. The graphics look incredibly good here, with good effects and action, lots of explosions and destruction from what I can see. It seems to definitely be a boost over the original game. Perhaps they have learned from their mistakes and will be bringing us a great game this time around.

Diablo 3 Barbarian Trailer Released

As with last weeks reveal of the Demon Hunter class, Blizzard’s Darkness Falls, Heroes Rise website has released information and a trailer for the Barbarian class.

The Barbarian is described as;

Mighty warriors whose strength and ferocity are a match for any foe, whether slavering beast or foul demon. Tall, broad, and rippling with muscle, the barbarian can bear a heavy weapon too large for a commoner to lift, or wield two full-sized armaments—one in each hand—with wickedly lethal purpose. In the wild and monstrous lands of Sanctuary, there is nothing more frightening than a barbarian with a dry blade”.

So if you like to get in amongst the fight and rip your enemies to shreds from close range, the Barbarian class might be for you.

Uncharted 3 Multiplayer Map Pack Trailer

Sony and Naughty Dog have released a teaser trailer for the soon to be released map pack for Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. The trailer features looks at The Graveyard map, Oasis Map, London Streets map and Old Quarter map.

The Graveyard map is set amongst the ship graveyard from the story campaign, with destroyed ships and crates rolling in the waves. Old Quarter looks as though there will be a lot of tight urban gameplay, small alleys etc. Whilst Oasis is set amongst a sandy wasteland with a lot of spots to jump around. Lastly the London Streets map is exactly what you would expect, lots of places to hide, back alleys, bars, described by Sony as a good place for a knock-down, drag-out, turf war.

Seems to me as though it’s quite a good assortment of maps in this release.

Check out the video after the break.
