Contrast -- Dawn and Didi

Compulsion Games’ most recent trailer for its forthcoming download-only game, Contrast, highlights a new song from the game’s original soundtrack. The new jazzy single is titled House on Fire; lyrics are by Compulsion with music by WaveGeneration Audio, while jazz singer Laura Ellis provides the sultry vocals.

Contrast tells the story of Didi and her friend Dawn — an imaginary friend capable of shifting into the shadow dimension. With Dawn’s power, players will navigate the puzzle/platform world of Contrast while uncovering the mystery of what happened to Didi’s parents. With its noir-esque visuals and atmosphere and a soundtrack that’s shaping up nicely, Compulsion’s new game looks very promising. Check out our hands-on preview from E3 2013 here.

Contrast hits the Xbox Games Store November 15, 2013 for $14.99. Watch the new music trailer after the break.

Warface_launch

Crytek announced its free-to-play first-person shooter Warface is coming to the Xbox 360 in early 2014. Warface is a class-based, online FPS. Players take on the roles of Warface, a group of ex-army soldiers, battling against the greedy, power-hungry force known as Blackwood. Depending on their play style, they can choose between four different classes — Rifleman, Medic, Sniper or Engineer — and take part in co-op missions with daily challenges, team-based deathmatch, free-for-all and several other modes you might expect to see in an FPS.

This marks Crytek’s first attempt at a free-to-play game and will tie in to its social hub GFACE where players can share their exploits with others. You can sign up to learn more about the 360 version here, and opt in for the PC beta here. Check out the announcement trailer after the break.
