ACTIVISION launch announcement and assets WHITE NIGHT

White_Night_Launch_Screenshot_1_1425397837-1024x640

White Night lures horror fans back to the old-school style the genre was built on, focusing on gripping tension, compelling mystery and clever puzzle design. Stranded alone in a seemingly abandoned mansion, players will have to explore the estate and confront its tortured past to dispel the spirits that haunt its halls. White Night draws from the classic themes of the jazz age and film noir storytelling to bring its rich world and atmosphere to life, reinforced by chilling sound effects, music and voice acting.
Plunged in darkness, White Night’s striking black-and-white visuals are also its most thrilling mechanic. Your surroundings can only be revealed by light and anything from the flicker of a match to the glow of the moon can expose new paths, secrets and story details. Moreover, light provides a safe haven against the terrors lurking in the shadows, making it a crucial resource to manage until the sun rises.

First official look at Aquaman for Batman v. Superman Movie

Screen Shot 2015-02-20 at 8.37.10 AM

Director Zach Snyder seems to want to accomplish in breaking the internet for DC comics fans and movie enthusiast alike. He took to twitter, something he is very known for, to reveal the official first look of actor Jason Momoa in his full Aquaman outfit for the upcoming and highly anticipated movie, Batman v. Superman Dawn Of Justice. In my personal opinion I think this take on the King of the Sea is fantastic. They are definitely keeping the “darker” motif Snyder established  ever since he directed Man Of Steel. Batman V. Superman is set for release on March 25th, 2016. Take a look at the picture of this awesome looking Aquaman and tell me our thoughts on it in the comment box below. Enjoy.
