At the end of a fresh new Devil May Cry 5 trailer, where we got treated to the first proper look at gameplay with the new character, V, Capcom also prepared a special surprise for those who stuck around.
Far Cry New Dawn already has a launch date of February 15, 2019 and can be pre-ordered now for $39.99. New Dawn builds on this; Hope County and the entire world are hit by nuclear bombs. Far Cry: New Dawn Creative Director Jean-Sebastien said these decisions were a combination of the writing team's opinions and consideration for "who the players appeciat [ed]".
This new game from Obsidian is a single-player game where "you explore the furthest reaches of space and encounter various factions, all vying for power". And the idea of two siblings, you know? This new world isn't all wildflowers and hope, though, because the Survivors now face a new threat: "the Highwaymen, a roving band of scavengers led by a merciless pair of twin sisters, Mickey and Lou". There is just a lot more overgrowth and the locals are a lot more violent.
Weapons and crafting: every item owned in America is now makeshift, and therefore highly personalised. The sequel nature of New Dawn is now confirmed, but, Ubisoft clarifies, it's not an official Far Cry 6 release.More news: Rally calls on Gov. Walker to veto lame duck legislation

Before getting too excited, let's wait until The Game Awards tonight at 8:30 p.m. EST to see what Ubisoft has to say.
Devil May Cry 5 - What is it?
The good news is that the fangs for hire mechanic is back as players will be able to take Timber, a brand new dog, or Horatio, a giant wild boar, along as companions. It seems players will not only be facing off against human foes but mutated ones as well.
So while there are some similarities with the Fallout games New Dawn actually looks closers to Rage 2, which also had a cool-looking new trailer at The Game Awards.
