Video Round-Up: World of Warcraft, No Man's Sky, and Hitman

Video Round-Up: World of Warcraft, No Man's Sky, and Hitman

Find out about Gul'Dan's past and where you can kill Gary Busey, all in the same place!

We're back again with a round-up of all of the worthwhile teasers, trailers, and gameplay videos that have launched in the past few days. Worth your eyeballs, but not big enough for a full article, here's everything in USgamer's Video Round-Up! (Real title under construction. Your suggestions can be submitted in the comments below!)

World of Warcraft

Running up to the release of the next World of Warcraft expansion, Legion, Blizzard Entertainment has released the first of its Harbringer animated shorts. This episode covers the origins of Gul'Dan, the Orc necromancer that called down the Burning Legion on his own people and all of Azeroth. How did he rise to power? World of Warcraft: Legion is coming on August 30, 2016.

No Man's Sky

No major issue with No Man's Sky's overall marketing is there hasn't been much detail on how players will interact with the game. Sure, there's a huge galaxy of planets to explore and creatures to see, but what do you do in the game in-between those amazing moments of discovery? This is the third video covering No Man's Sky's gameplay, focusing on Trade this time. If you've missed the previous videos, focused on Exploring and Fighting, they're worth a look. No Man's Sky is coming to PlayStation 4 and PC on August 9, 2016.

Hitman

Hitman fans have 6 days to kill Gary Busey! Not the real one of course. As part of the game's Elusive Targets mode, which gives players a limited time and a single shot to assassinate a target, Square Enix offered up a choice. Did players want to kill actors Gary Busey or Gary Cole? At the end of the fan vote, Gary Busey was the winner, so he's the target. Gary Cole is still in the game, but he's not the guy you're there to assassinate.

Mafia III

The next title in the Mafia franchise takes the series down South and focuses on the exploits of black Vietnam vet turned mafia boss Lincoln Clay. In this live-action teaser, you can see the results of Clay's roaring rampage of revenge. He's not a nice guy. Mafia III is coming out on October 7, 2016 on PC, Xbox One, and PS4.

Starbound

After a few years in development, Starbound has finally moved beyond alpha, beta, and Early Access! Today marks the full 1.0 release of Starbound and developer Chucklefish has released an all-new trailer for the game. The final release of the game has a full campaign, a ton of quests, weapons, and villagers to collect, and Steam Workshop support for mods. If you're interested, Starbound is available on Steam for $14.99.

The Witcher III First-Person Mod

As the non-official entry in this round-up, here's a look at one modder's work on creating a first-person camera for CD Projekt Red's best-selling RPG, the Witcher III! The modder, SkacikPL, has been working on the mod since March of this year and things look like they're coming along quite nicely!

Third-person action-adventure games are his personal poison: Uncharted, Infamous, and Assassin's Creed just to name a few. If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
