Bethesda Teases RAGE2 Following Retailer Leak

Published

Walmart Canada seems to have posted a massive leak of unannounced games to the pre-order listing section of its website.

Twitter user Wario64 uncovered the list—which has since been removed—and posted it in all of its rumor-filled glory earlier today.

With E3 just around the corner, the list is interesting to say the least. Titles such as Assassin’s Creed, Borderlands 3, and Gears of War 5 are some of the exciting, but not out of the ordinary featured titles on the listing. However, Splinter Cell, LEGO DC Villains (spelled as “Villans”), and, perhaps most notably, Rage 2 are curious choices to say the least.

The original Rage is a cult classic from 2010, so a sequel coming eight years later is more than possible. The game’s official Twitter account posted a humorous response to Walmart’s listing, essentially confirming the game.

Furthermore, with Splinter Cell protagonist Sam Fisher making an appearance in Ghost Recon Wildlands‘ newest update, a new Splinter Cell title is also a promising aspect as well.

While this majority of games on the list should be treated as merely a rumor, there is no denying the perfect timing the presence some of these games could have at E3.

Further adding to the drama of the situation was Bethesda’s vice president Pete Hines, who sent out some tweets condemning the Walmart missteps. One user tweeted at Hines asking where the next Doom game is to which Hines responded, “Go buy a Magic 8-ball at Walmart and ask it.”

Sci-Fi Adventure Tether Back in Development, Demo Released

Published

Tether

Freesphere Entertainment has announced that Tether is back in active development, almost a year after it was put on hold.

Alongside the announcement, the team has finally released the prototype version of the previous incarnation of the project for free on itch.io. According to the announcement, the decision to release the demo came because “it seemed silly to have years of hard work sat there for people who worked on it to not get any recognition.”

The post also suggests that Freesphere has gone back to the drawing board for the project, saying that it is seeking to reduce the scope of the story and hinting at a “new direction.”

The demo is a long time coming, as creative director Mark Gregory first told OnlySP late last year that it would be made available as part of a larger interview discussing some of the problems and struggles faced by the team members, which included underfunding, a lack of publisher interest, and personal burnout.

For anyone unfamiliar with Tether, the sci-fi adventure promises to tell the story of a mother trapped aboard a space station while on a mission to prevent environmental collapse. While the premise raises echoes of the ‘walking simulator’ format, the game was quite ambitious, featuring time manipulation mechanics, a reactive AI enemy similar to Alien: Isolation‘s xenomorph, and immersive sim elements. How much of that will be retained in the new version remains to be seen.

OnlySP’s Amy Davidson has already pledged to trial the demo as a future entry in the Friday Freebies Club, which this week will examine \SPEK.TAKL\, so watch out for that.
