Video Round-Up: Zelda, Titanfall 2, Dishonored 2, and Civilization VI

Video Round-Up: Zelda, Titanfall 2, Dishonored 2, and Civilization VI

Cooking, killing, conquering, and piloting are the highlights in this video round-up.

It's time for another Video Round-Up, collecting all the trailers that have crossed my desk that aren't enough for a distinct article. Instead of spreading them out, we put them all in one place for you! In today's round-up, we have Link cooking, Emily and Corvo killing, Trajan leading, and Titans smashing.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Nintendo has a new trailer showing off the cooking mechanic for the latest Legend of Zelda adventure. Link can hunt down ingredients in Hyrule, toss them in his jaunty cooking pot, and out will pop brand-new food for his consumption! Food can buff health or raise Link's resistance to cold environments. Watch out though, because throwing just anything in the pot my result in some dubious food.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is coming out on Wii U and NX some time in 2017.

Dishonored 2

One of the best things about Dishonored and its upcoming sequel, is how the games allow players to be rather freeform in how they tackle problems. In this video, Emily Kaldwin and Corvo Attano show off just a few of the ways that players can dispatch their foes. Trust me, you can get real creative this time around shredding enemies in forcefield and shrapnel grenades, linking them together to create mayhem, and pulling them towards certain death.

Dishonored 2 comes out for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on November 11, 2016.

Titanfall 2

Though Titanfall 2 focused on the giant robots with its first few trailers, the latest one is all about pilot combat. Pilots can still shoot, wallrun, mantle, and rodeo enemy Titans, but they have a whole host of new abilities this time around. There's the new grappling hook, a holographic clone generator, slow fall jump jets, and a new camouflage mode. Being a pilot was my favorite part of Titanfall and it looks like it's only getting better in Titanfall 2.

Titanfall 2 is coming to Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 on October 28, 2016.

Civilization VI

In the latest Civilization VI video, Firaxis shows off the Rome Civ and its new leader, Trajan. That's right, no Julius or Augustus Caesar this time around. Trajan is known as optimus princeps ("the best ruler") and led the Empire over the greatest military expansion in Roman history. Rome's unique unit is the Legion and its unique district is the Roman bath.

Civilization VI comes out for PC on October 21, 2016.

Rocket League

Psyonix is offering a brand-new free arena that might remind some players of the recently-released Bioshock Collection. (A connection that PSyonix is playing up, given the font choices in the trailer.) The AquaDome is an underwater paradise for players to car soccer in, featuring new music by artist Drunk Girl. It's a standard areas and once launched, it'll go on every Rocket League playlist. Alongside the update comes two new cars for the Showroom: the Triton and the Proteus. Each car will cost $1.99.
