Indie developer Golden Ruby Games and publisher Ripstone today announced that "paranormal platformer" Extreme Exorcism will be released on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC in 2015. Previously, the game was confirmed only for PC.
The announcement today, on Halloween, is fitting, given the game's subject material. Haven't heard of Extreme Exorcism? It's a platformer where "all of your actions will come back to haunt you..."
You play the role of an "extreme exorcist" named MaeBarrons. Her tactics are somewhat unorthodox ("holy water and a Bible just won't cut it with these ghosts"), so she uses a heavy-powered arsenal of swords, guns, grenades, mines, rocket launchers, and weaponized boomerangs.
She can also use lightning spells and Kung-Fu moves.
The main hook in Extreme Exorcism is that every time you kill a ghost, another appears that copies your every move. "So tread carefully, or prepare to reap what you sow. The longer you survive, the more extreme the game becomes."
Here are the basics about Extreme Exorcism, courtesy of Golden Ruby Games:

The "Big Alpha" for 2015's much-anticipated 4v1 shooter Evolve comes to PlayStation 4 and PC today, following its launch yesterday exclusively for Xbox One.
The alpha will be available to download on PS4 and PC today starting at 9 AM PDT / 12 Noon EDT / 4 PM GMT. If you preordered a copy of the game, you're guaranteed a spot. The alpha ends on Sunday, November 2.
2K Games and developer Turtle Rock Studios have also released a new "Kraken Interactive Trailer" for Evolve, which you can see below. It allows you to see a match unfold from five different perspectives.
Evolve was originally targeted to launch this year, but it was recently delayed to February 10, 2015. The game's developer, Turtle Rock, also created the Left 4 Dead series. In Evolve, four players fight together to take down a fifth player, who takes on the role of a monster with unique (and deadly) attributes.
Evolve was originally a THQ game, but when the company went bankrupt, 2K Games parent company Take-Two Interactive bought the game during an auction for $10.9 million. For more on Evolve, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.
Comedian and late night TV host Conan O'Brien recently got to play an early copy of next week's Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. While he says he can't show you gameplay due to legal reasons, he did release a funny teaser trailer for his upcoming review.
In the video below, we see Conan's reaction to playing Advanced Warfare. Suffice it to say, he's excited about it. He even goes as far to say, "that was the greatest feeling I've ever experienced, and I've watched two of my children be born."
Conan's review of Advanced Warfare will come next week.
Advanced Warfare launches November 4 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC. You can get it one day early, however, through the Day Zero edition. The game has a standard single-player campaign, head-to-heard multiplayer, co-op, and maybe even a zombies mode.
