Far Cry 3

This week’s game releases include: a no holds barred bid for survival FPS with Far Cry 3, an arena-like jump into the heart of conflict in Middle Earth with Guardians of Middle Earth, a quest to save the Earth with Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth, and the latest DLC for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim with Dragonborn.

Far Cry 3 – PS3/Xbox 360/PC

Assume the role of Jason Brody, a man trapped on a forsaken island that has long since forgotten the distinctions between wrong and right.  The only forms of survival are through the business end of a gun or drugs that can blow a mind out of the water.  Players will have to survive through any means necessary: whether it’s by stealth or by making their enemies into Swiss cheese with a barrage of bullets.  Far Cry 3 features a truly open-world FPS adventure, where it is up to the player as to what becomes of them.  Gamers will also partake in an immersive story, as well as a multiplayer that rewards effective teamwork.  For those who are looking for an additional challenge, the map editor can be used to create and access new trials.  Far Cry 3 is scheduled for release on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on Dec 4.

Guardians of Middle Earth – PS3

Re-visit the world of Middle Earth, where the shadow of doom is upon the land once again, and it is up to the players to turn the tide of evil.  Guardians of Middle Earth brings together ten players in arenas of five versus five.  Featuring a number of iconic characters such as: Gollum, Sauron, and Gandalf, Guardians of Middle Earth also lets players track their victories and defeats through the leaderboard system.  Players will also be allowed to purchase buffs and in-game items between sessions.  Guardians of Middle Earth is scheduled for release on PlayStation 3 on Dec 4.

Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth – Wii U

Jump into the fight to save Earth from annihilation!  Players will be able to access up to 20 classic Marvel characters, each of whom possess individual superpowers.  Marvel Avengers features a number of modes, such as: campaign, arcade, co-op, and challenge.  Players will also engage in a dynamic combat system that allows for dramatic and innovative ways to break enemies down.  Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth is scheduled for release on Wii U on Dec 4.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Dragonborn DLC – Xbox 360

Continue to earn the title of Dragonborn with the latest DLC for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.  Featuring a number of new locations such as the island of Solstheim and the coast of Morrowind, Dragonborn will pitch the player against a number of new kinds of enemies, as well as challenging new quests.  Players will also be able to tame dragons, master a number of new shouts, and venture into a completely new daedric realm.  The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Dragonborn DLC is scheduled for release on Xbox 360 on Dec 4, with release dates for PlayStation 3 and PC as yet unannounced.
