Editor’s Note: This is the GameSentral Rewind, a daily recap of the top gaming headlines.
Volition announces Agents of Mayhem
Volition has announced Agents of Mayhem, an open-world action game with modern design ingredients like an urban landscape, open-world action, and a whimsical touch.
You play as a squad of three agents, and use their unique stills to beat back the baddies. However, that doesn’t mean that you’re necessarily playing a good v. evil showcase. Though they’re nicer than the mustache-twirling members of L.E.G.I.O.N., the agents of M.A.Y.H.E.M. aren’t exactly goody two-shoes either.
Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age announced
Square Enix has announced Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age, an HD remaster of Final Fantasy XII coming to PlayStation 4 in 2017.
The game will include the Zodiac job system, which wasn’t previously available in the West, and also offer a new trial mode, allowing layers to “take on monsters and enemies in up to 100 successive battles.”
Aside from remastered character models and cutscenes, The Zodiac Age will also include “newly recorded background music,” as well as the option to switch between the remastered and original soundtracks.
Horizon: Zero Dawn release date announced
While initially slated to launch later this year, Horizon: Zero Dawn will now launch on Feb. 28, 2017, according to Guerrilla Games managing director Hermen Hulst.
“It wasn’t an easy choice to make, [but] the new date affords us the extra time required to deliver fully on our ambitious vision for Horizon: Zero Dawn.”
