Far Cry New Dawn Brings Players into a Vibrant Post-Apocalyptic Frontier

Posted by on Dec 06, 2018

Far Cry New Dawn – the standalone sequel to Far Cry 5 coming to PlayStation 4 on February 15, 2019 – takes us to a world that’s just beginning to emerge from global nuclear destruction. Set 17 years after the catastrophe, Far Cry New Dawn unfolds in a drastically transformed Hope County. Nature has bounced back and taken over, giving way to a brilliantly colorful superbloom phenomenon. Survivors have begun to build a new, makeshift community from the ruins, and you may recognize some of them from Far Cry 5 – like Pastor Jerome. This new world isn’t all wildflowers and hope, though, because the Survivors now face a new threat: the Highwaymen, a roving band of scavengers led by a merciless pair of twin sisters, Mickey and Lou.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey: Forge Your Own Path

Posted by on Jun 11, 2018

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey takes PS4 players all the way back to Ancient Greece during the 5th century BCE, when Athens and Sparta were locked in a war that would shape the course of Western civilization for millennia to come. Your role in the Peloponnesian War, however, isn’t to work in the dark to serve the light as an Assassin. Set hundreds of years before the events of Assassin’s Creed Origins, Odyssey instead casts you as a mercenary, free to forge your own path and build your own alliances. And that means the introduction of something new to Assassin’s Creed: the freedom to make story-altering choices.
