New Crysis 2 Concept Art

New concept art of this year's most anticipated FPS game, Crysis 2 have been released. The concept arts are very amazing, showing the devastated New York city invaded by aliens. Short descriptions of the concept arts are provided as well. The images are taken from Crysis Facebook page.

Alley -- This image showcases the desolate beauty of the battle-scarred city, with shafts of sunlight filtering through the crumbling ruins of familiar New York architecture. The streets are littered with signs of civil unrest. Graffiti and banners exhibit the plight of civilians still trapped inside the ravaged city. It’s one of the best examples of catastrophic beauty in Crysis 2.

Battery Park -- This key establishing shot provides an overview of a devastated Battery Park against a backdrop of the shattered Manhattan skyline. Evacuation ferries lie stranded in the bay while smoke from burning military vehicles shrouds the park in an ominous fog of war.

 Canyon -- Our interpretation of an ‘urban jungle’. We broke the city into multiple levels to create layered gameplay spaces, with lakes, waterfalls and a labyrinth of subterranean caverns beneath the remnants of the New York skyline.

Central Station -- One of the last bastions of man, this historic building plays host to a crucial strategic battle against alien forces. The ultimate fortification, with countless layers, from the subway tunnels to the upper floors of this vast, iconic building. The interior displays a mixture of modern and historic architecture, overlaid with signature alien destruction.

Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood

Real gamers must know the game series Assassin's Creed by Ubisoft. It is one of the best third person action-adventure game that I've ever played. Well, for those who doesn't know yet, the next sequel of Assassin's Creed will be out in November 11, 2010. Yes, this year. I'm quite shock wondering how they manage to make the game so quick, just one year after Assassin's Creed 2! The PC version of  Assassin's Creed 2 just released two months ago (console version is six months ago) . Frankly, I just finished playing the PC version last week and I really enjoyed playing the game!

Entitled Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, it is a direct-sequel to Assassin's Creed 2 and its story will take place shortly after the ending of the previous game, with Ezio returning as the main protagonist. Ezio Auditore da Firenze, now a master assassin, continued his hunt for Templars and therefore went to Rome, the headquarters of the Templar order. Together with the other members of the Assassin order, he took out the remnants of the Italian Templars. According to Ubisoft, the game is going to offer over 15 hours of single-player gameplay set in the city of Rome with the possibility to recruit and train young Assassins that can be deployed across the city of Rome, or call upon to aid Ezio in his quests.

Also in the quests, Ezio will meet real historical characters such as Leonardo da Vinci, Niccolò Machiavelli and Caterina Sforza with which he can collaborate, and also by helping out citizens of Rome and convincing them to join the cause will unlock extra factions and missions. Old weapons and devices from previous games will carry over, such as hidden blades, and DaVinci's flying machine. New weapons will also be introduced. Two of these new weapons were revealed in teaser content for the game, a bladed fan and switch blade version of the hidden blade. A syringe is also presented in the teaser, which extrapolates on a hollowed out version of the hidden blade used for delivering poison in Assassin's Creed 2.

Multiplayer mode is now introduced to the franchise and will allow the player to choose from multiple authentic character classes, each with their own signature weapons and killing moves to battle on maps and a wide variety of multiplayer modes.

Now, enjoy these concept arts of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood from IGN. Click on each image to enlarge.

And recently,  Ubisoft sent out an email detailing exactly what people will get when they Pre-Order Assassin's Creed Brotherhood. It would be an additional multiplayer character from a leaked GameStop reservation placeholder card. The character is called The Harlequin, a masked assassin shown snapping a victim's neck in the image below.

TF3 On Set Pictures (Spoilers)

Oh, I forgot to post this one as it contains spoilers for some of you. Anyway, for those who are okay with spoilers, continue to read this.

These two pictures from a Transformers 3 shooting set that show a plot point with a cross-out Autobot symbol and the phrase "Go Home". This seems to suggest that the public outing of the Transformers race and their war in the second movie is not going well for our heroes.

Next, we got two more pictures from Left Lane News that show two Chevy Sparks sporting the Twins' colors in stripes over a black body.

Sporting “Autobot” center caps on the wheels, these two vehicles were captured doing some pre-production work before principal filming starts in a few weeks. We think you are looking at Skidz (green) and Mudflap (orange).

Skidz is looking much sportier than in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, with new front and rear fascias, larger fenders, sportier wheels and a big wing. Mudflap was previously based on the Chevy Traxx concept, but for this installment, it appears both cars will be built off the Chevy Spark.

Three New Crysis 2 Screenshot

Yeah, we got new screenshots of the game Crysis 2 from the publisher, Electronic Arts.
The first screenshot shows a battle scene with the Earth-invading Aliens and Crynet troops. Second one shows the player destroying a few precious solar panels by teaching an unlucky Crynet soldier a lesson in humiliation. This is also the first time we see a version of the HUD (Head-Up Display). The third, non-gameplay, screenshot was released a while back together with Crytek's Facebook contest and it shows devastated New York city block with a lone helicopter standing on the street. Click on each image to enlarge them.
