KT Racing have released a new trailer looking at some of the new and improved features found in their official Isle of Man TT simulator, TT Isle of Man: Ride on the Edge 2.
One of the biggest changes sees the introduction of an open world that’s said to be a “biker's paradise.”
Players will have to “prove their worth” before taking on the island's iconic, 60km Snaefell Mountain course by competing in a series of road races, earning upgrades that can be tested out in the game world.
There’s no solid release date just yet, with the game said to be releasing on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC sometime during the “first semester” of this year.

Capcom have released a new trailer for the upcoming Resident Evil 3 remake, giving us a closer look at the game’s stalking antagonist, Nemesis.
As well as the Nemesis, an unkillable hulk who relentlessly hunts players with laser guided rockets, a flamethrower and some rather nasty whip-like tentacles, the trailer also briefly highlights the Hunter enemy type players will be encountering.
This monster, a walking bioweapon, has been made by “combining the genetic material of humans and reptiles” to create an incredibly fast and powerful adversary.
Resident Evil 3 is out 3 April on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.

Square Enix have delayed the release of their Final Fantasy VII remake, with the game now set to launch a little over a month later than the original release date.
“In order to ensure we deliver a game that is in-line with our vision, and the quality that our fans who have been waiting for deserve, we have decided to move the release date… Thank you for your patience and continued support.”
Another of Square Enix’s titles, Crystal Dynamics’ Marvel’s Avengers, which the aforementioned studio is handling publishing duties for, has also had its release date pushed back, this time by a more significant four months.
The game, which is coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC and Stadia, was supposed to release 15 May, but today received a new launch date of 4 September.
“At Crystal Dynamics our ambition has always been to deliver the ultimate Avengers gaming experience. In order to achieve that goal, we have made the difficult decision to move the release date of Marvel’s Avengers,” read a statement published on the game’s official twitter account.
“When we set out to bring you our vision for Marvel’s Avengers, we committed to delivering an original story-driven campaign, engaging co-op, and compelling content for years to come. To that end, we will spend this additional development time focusing on fine tuning and polishing the game to the high standards our fans expect and deserve.”
The third-person action adventure title, which was revealed at last year’s E3, contains both single player and multiplayer missions, and features a brand-new story and multiple playable heroes, including Kamala Khan, aka Ms. Marvel.

Milestone, the team behind Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame 3, has teamed up with real-world supercross rider and rapper, Adam Enticknap, for the game’s latest musical trailer.
“’Be One of Us’ was the first thing that came to mind when the developers of Monster Energy Supercross 3 came to me for this project,” stated Supercross athlete and rapper Adam Enticknap.
“The gaming features are so realistic and so sick that I knew I had to translate that authenticity. This truly has been a surreal experience and I hope fans dig the rap as much as I know they are going to love the new game.”

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games and Lucasfilm have announced a new LEGO Star Wars game that encapsulates all nine main films.
“LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga marks our return to the franchise that kicked off the LEGO video game series. The game will give fans an all-new LEGO Star Wars experience with complete freedom to explore the LEGO Star Wars galaxy,” said Tom Stone, Managing Director, TT Games.
“It was an absolute pleasure to be part of the launch of the original LEGO Star Wars game and it’s equally exciting to now move the series forward and help create a new era of LEGO Star Wars games.”
Whilst this game will consolidate all the main Star Wars films, it doesn’t look like the collection will include any content from spin-off films Rogue One and Solo.
There’s no solid release date just yet, with the game scheduled to arrive sometime this year on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Switch and PC.

A remake of Capcom’s Resident Evil 3 was officially announced today during the latest State of Play stream, following recent leaks that all but confirmed the news last week.
As well as a completely overhauled main campaign, the remake also features an asymmetrical multiplayer mode called Resident Evil Resistance, which was first unveiled as a working title at the Tokyo Game Festival.
In this mode, one player takes on the role of the Mastermind and three others play as Survivors. Masterminds can “manipulate the environment and wield a deck of cards to place vicious creatures, set traps and weaponized security cameras” to try and stop Survivors, who in turn must work together and use their characters’ special abilities to escape the experiments before time runs out.
Resident Evil 3 is coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam on 3 April 2020.

2K and Gearbox have released the first 14 minutes of Borderlands 3’s upcoming DLC, Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot.
As everyone aboard the casino has been trapped there since Jack’s death, the leftover punters aren’t in the most welcoming mood, and there’s also a few new “never-before-seen enemies and larger-than-life bosses” based on the old Hyperion forces.
Players must first have unlocked the Sanctuary III base by completing the main campaign’s prologue and should be at least level 13 before taking on the heist. Higher level players will find the difficulty automatically scales to offer a challenge and “appropriately powerful loot.”
Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot is out 19 December on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, and comes as part of the season pass and the Super Deluxe edition of the game. It's the first of four DLC drops planned for Borderlands 3.
What do you think of the new footage? Looking forward to the (sort of) return of Handsome Jack? Let us know below.
UK publisher Slitherine LTD are partnering up with Belgian development studio The Artistocrats (Order of Battle, Commander: The Great War) to make a new game based on the Starship Troopers film.
According to Slitherine, the game will feature complex mechanics and deep gameplay systems, along with a “wide variety of options to turn a fast-paced strategy game into a mind-bending experience that involves multiple solutions to a very basic problem: to kill a lot of bugs.” Judging from the trailer, it looks like some of those options include air strikes and giant mechs, and, of course, portable nukes.
Development Director Iain McNeil spoke about the game using the film as inspiration to create an authentic feeling experience:
“When creating this game, we aimed to capture the essence of the original movie and its universe. This is not only achieved by creating a coherent set of units and scenarios, but also by mimicking the language, visual elements, dialogues and the little details that made the film such an iconic, cult feature.
“Modern strategy games are fast-paced and they successfully blend unit management, survival and captivating storytelling,” continued McNeil. “Nothing is more suited to this type of gameplay than the Starship Troopers universe, where there is a continuous sense of danger and uncertainty.”
There’s no solid release date yet, with the game said to be coming to PC sometime next year.
