Halo 5: Guardians – When Worlds Collide

Halo has made quite the ripple at this year’s Comic Con, SDCC 2014. The teaser trailer was revealed earlier today with much acclaim and many questions. An arising conflict is building between the UNSC and ONI, and Agent Clarke seems to be smack in the middle of it. Check out the teaser below!

Halo: Nightfall is only the beginning of what we have learned about the future of the series however. Dark Horse comics revealed the next Halo: Escalation comic book series, and with it Halo Escalation: Issue #9.

Titanfall: Respawn Introduces the Black Market

The Black Market  (Insert from Titanfall.com)

The Frontier may be rich in resources, but it’s also rich with conflict. As a Pilot, you want to be prepared for anything, and sometimes, standard issue just isn’t enough to get the job done. Sometimes, you need to look elsewhere for an edge. Welcome to the seedy underbelly of the Frontier, Pilot – The Black Market.

The Black Market collects and sells the Frontier’s most sordid items like packs of random Burn Cards and Titan Insignias. Don’t ask where we got them. You don’t want to know.

Respawn announced today that players will be able to purchase burn cards and titan insignias with in-game currency (credits) at the Black Market, a new store that will be added via an update sometime soon. Credits can be earned from match victories, match completions, a player’s first victory of the day, completing daily challenges, and by selling burn cards. Additionally, once a player reaches level 50, part of their experienced earned will be converted to credits, a great feature for 10th Gen players!

Game Designer, David Shaver, went on to assure players that the Black Market is not in any way an attempt to announce microtransactions. The Black Market is actually a very unique way to not only add more reward to Titanfall, but it also engages a spark of story to the booming FPS. The Black Market was previously mentioned in the description of the map, Smuggler’s Cove, so it’s great to see Respawn build on that.

Charting a Course: Developing the Next Mass Effect – SDCC Panel 2014

San Diego’s Comic Con 2014 is just around the corner, and many panels have been earning their confirmation over the last couple of weeks. BioWare has announced their Mass Effect 4 Panel, Charting a Course: Developing the Next Mass Effect. BioWare’s panel is going to discuss the making of this next Mass Effect, and hopefully give us plenty of new information on the next installment of this blockbuster franchise.

Other than the original reveal, N7 Day concept art, and the short teaser from EA’s E3 2014 Press Conference, not much has been revealed about Mass Effect 4, but some details have been confirmed. We know that Commander Shepard will not be the star or primary role and that the game is going to share many “core features” of Dragon Age Inquisition. This most likely refers to “under-the-hood” development that won’t reflect the game’s combat, HUD, dialogue, etc. Lastly, the developers have stated that ME4 is going to take place in whole new area of Space, so it would be great to learn more on that.

SDCC 2014 runs July 24-27, so in just a few more weeks we should a lot more about the next Mass Effect. We will follow up on this article at that time, so enjoy the Con and check back often for everything Mass Effect, right here at DS90’s!
