Another week, another round of trailers featuring highlights from the best forthcoming movies, games and TV shows. We’ve got the usual round-up for you here, so let’s check out this week’s favorites.
Goat Simulator has been a huge simulation success over the past few months, with PC players flocking to Coffee Stain Studios’ release. It’s pure silliness, with everything from rocket packs to explosions to angry boats. So, of course, the team will expand upon that success with Goat MMO Simulator, which will release tomorrow for PC. This new add-on shows similarities to Bethesda’s Elder Scrolls series, but, as you might expect, with goats.
Telltale Games, the creators of the Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us episodic games, have returned with its latest effort, a spin-off from Gearbox Software’s popular Borderlands series. In Tales From the Borderlands, players will explore an all-new adventure, with several new characters meeting up with familiar ones from the series. The first chapter, Zero Sum, will debut in time for the holiday season on game consoles and PC.
Disney is once again resurrecting one of its classic films with a live-action version of Cinderella, which will debut in theaters on March 13th. The film stars Cate Blanchett, Lily James, Richard Madden and Helena Bonham Carter, and is directed by Kenneth Branagh (Thor). Expect plenty of CGI magic, along with recognizable themes from the animated classic.
This December, Netflix will debut its latest original series on its streaming service, Marco Polo. It provides a more brutal take on history, following the legendary explorer as he navigates his way into the inner court of 13th century ruler Kublai Khan. Expect plenty of epic adventure from this one, along with powerhouse performances that bring the tale to life like never before.
Finally, several big video game releases came around this week, including a next-gen remake of Grand Theft Auto V and Ubisoft’s Far Cry 4. However, EA’s Dragon Age: Inquisition is getting a great deal of attention, and for good reason. Both die-hard fans of the series and newcomers alike will be able to embrace new spellcasting systems, along with plenty of epic quests that will challenge their skills at every turn. The game is available now for both consoles and PC.
