Supposed Whore of the Orient gameplay footage leaked

Supposed Whore of the Orient gameplay footage leaked

A minute of gameplay footage supposedly from Team Bondi's mysterious and ill-fated Whore of the Orient has stumbled onto the Internet, dazed and shivering as if emerging from an opium den into the harsh light of day. If it is what it's claimed to be, it's clearly from an early build, but does give a good gander at the sort of action it's aiming for.

Rumor: PopCap preparing Plants vs Zombies multiplayer shooter

The next Plants vs Zombies game may not be a tower defense fans would expect. Instead, the latest rumor suggests it will be a game unlike anything PopCap has ever done. Various signs and one unnamed source have indicated it could take the series in a multiplayer-action direction, possibly even as a first-person shooter.

Rumour: Thief 4 switched to next-gen consoles

It's been three years since Thief 4 was announced by Deus Ex: Human Revolution developer Eidos Montreal yet we still have seen neither hide nor hair of the sneak 'em up revival.

Rumor: PlayStation All-Stars stages, roster leaked

Sony has been slowly drip-feeding us new details about the line-up for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, most recently announcing Cole, Jak and Daxter. But the SS Sony is also a notoriously leaky ship, and those slow reveals may have been spoiled if a rumored (massive) leak turns out to be true.

Rumor: Black Ops 2 coming to Wii U

Rumor: Black Ops 2 coming to Wii U

Nintendo has made no bones about its hope that platform parity with the Wii U will make it more attractive for third-parties to port their games from PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. But conspicuously missing from the company's E3 press briefing were some of the biggest franchises around, including Call of Duty. A rumor suggests that the next installment, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, will make it to the new console.

Timesplitters 4 using 'infinite monkey theorem,' dev says

It has been seven years since the last TimeSplitters game, and in that time, developer Free Radical Entertainment was rescued from the brink of destruction by Crytek, and was reborn as Crytek UK. Several reports of a TimeSplitters 4 have surfaced since then, with the latest rumor from OXM sources having the game up and running, but Crytek UK has humorously responded with what could be viewed as a wink and a nudge.

Rumor: PS4 won't be backward-compatible with PS3

Whereas the rumor mill has been quite active regarding the next Xbox console (codenamed "Durango"), there's barely been a whisper of the next PlayStation. With signs pointing to the next generation of consoles launching in 2013, what has Sony been up to?

According to the latest rumor, "select developers" have already received dev kits for the PS4 since the beginning of this year. However, "finalized" beta kits won't ship until the end of 2012. Inside the box is an AMD x64 CPU and AMD Southern Islands GPU--a drastic change in architecture from the IBM/Nvidia core in the PS3.

Rumor: Prey 2's future uncertain

Rumor: Prey 2's future uncertain

Update: 2:36 p.m. with no comment from Bethesda.

When Shacknews' Ozzie Mejia previewed Human Head Studio's Prey 2 back at E3 last year, he came away impressed with the new direction the series seemed to be taking. Open-world bounty hunting is an intriguing concept, to say the least. That's why it's disheartening that a rumor has surfaced indicating that the game might never see the light of day.
