Leaked gameplay Assassin's Creed Valhalla, release date Horizon on PC, Shadow Warrior 3 - game news digest # 2.07. Part one
30 minutes of Assassin's Creed Valhalla gameplay floated online
The first gameplay trailer for Assassin's Creed Valhalla barely showed us the gameplay itself. Therefore, if you really want to look at the new part of Assassin's Creed, then there is good news for you - half an hour of gameplay for the female version of Eyvor has leaked online.
In the game, we saw a skill tree for pumping, a large-scale invasion that began with the fact that you and your brothers in arms sail a boat to the enemy fortification and storm it. Less important details: a new version of the eagle vision, a battle with wild animals that have refused to die for a long time and a ride on a horse.
They are trying to erase the video, but everything that got into the Internet remains in it forever. The players managed to criticize the gameplay for the general similarity with Origins and Odyssey, as well as for the unrealistic movements of the hero. Ubisoft replied that this is only a fraction of what we will see, and there is no need to jump to conclusions.
The gameplay will be officially shown at the Ubisoft Forward Developer Special Event on July 12th.

According to the plot, Lowe Veng, together with his partner, will catch an ancient dragon, which they themselves freed. The teaser trailer ends with the hero showing his opponents the middle finger, promising to return in the gameplay video and kill them there.

Filming on Sleeping Dogs is already underway, or will begin soon
Information about the Sleeping Dogs adaptation appeared back in 2017. But there were practically no details about her. The only thing we knew was that Donnie Yen would star in the lead.
Recently, the actor posted in the Chinese social. on the Weibo network, a video of him practicing hand-to-hand fighting techniques in the gym, and signed it that he begins his new test. Among the hashtags he supplied was Sleeping Dog. We emphasize that it is Dog, not Dogs. Apparently this is not a typo, since he has written such a name before.
The last time Ian used a similar hashtag, he announced the start of production. It looks like her filming has already begun, or at least will begin soon. The obvious fact is that we have neither the name of the director nor the release date.
End of an era: it looks like all new big games will cost $ 70
Over the past few years, the industry has faced the problem that games are more expensive to create every year, and the price tag for them is still $ 60. More and more rumors circulated that this trend was destined to break the next generation of consoles and we have more and more evidence. So, the first game that costs 70 bucks was NBA 2K21, and now the analytical portal IDG Consulting says that such a price will be ubiquitous.
Its head Yoshio Osaki spoke to GameIndustry.biz where he said that the prices of games are still at the price tag of 2005, when with the arrival of new consoles [PS3 and Xbox 360] their price increased from $ 50 to $ 60. ty.
At the same time, the production price [depending on the franchise] has increased since then by 200-300%. Other media are adjusting to the growing demands of production. For example, cinema tickets are up 39%, Netflix subscriptions are up 100%, and cable TV packages are up 105%.
Osaki assures that the increase in the price of games will not affect the price of the consoles themselves, but will push the production of the product in the right direction.
The analyst also claims that the price increase will not be universal and will affect only the flagship projects of the studios.
This was all news from the beginning of the week, stay tuned.
