Upcoming Games of 2008: Part IV

Bully: Scholarship Edition

Platform: Xbox360, Wii
Release Date: March 2008
All those who never got to try out Rockstar’s high school sim on the PS2 will now get a shot at the game when it hits the Xbox360 and Wii this March. Besides a visual facelift, both versions are expected to have bonus content – like new missions, newer classes, a fancier wardrobe, and much more.

Dark Messiah of Might and Magic Elements

Platform: Xbox360
Release Date: January/February 2008
Just like Rockstar’s Bully: Scholarship Edition, DMoMM Elements isn’t a new game; it’s a port of the Source-powered action RPG that hit PCs in 2006. As expected, the game will ship with a bit of extra content in the form of three new single player levels and new multiplayer maps. Not too impressive to those who’ve played it on the PC.

Tomb Raider Underworld

Platform: Xbox360, PS3, PC
Release Date: TBA 2008
While the name may sound a bit similar to the werewolves VS vampires flick of the same name, the next iteration of Tomb Raider will not feature any of the above mentioned oddities and will take place after the events of Tomb Raider Legend. A brand new engine is being developed for the game by Crystal Dynamics that’ll boast of some mad, ultra realistic lighting and weather effects.
