Bioware dropped a new trailer for Mass Effect 3 and its pretty epic. The studio also revealed that Bioware will be taking over development duties of the next Command and Conquer game. This development will be handled by newly created Bioware Victory, and the game will be running on Frostbite 2.

Epic Game’s also revealed a new game at the show called Fortnite. As the name implies, its about building a fort to fend off zombies and monsters that go bump in the night. This game is no doubt inspired by Minecraft’s gameplay mechanics where you must build a fort before monsters start spawn during night time.

One of the biggest stories to come out of the Spike VGA show was around Kojima’s reveal of the new relaunch of Metal Gear Rising – or Revengeance. The new version of the game will be developed by Platinum Games, the developers behind AAA titles: MadWorld, Bayonetta and Vanquish. Two top notch studios, Kojima Productions and Platinum Games partnering up sounds like a match made in heaven.

 

With Metal Gear Revengeance outsourced to Platinum Games, it makes you wonder what Kojima Studios is currently working on.
