New G.I. Joe: Operation Blackout Video Game For PS4, Switch And XBox Revealed

Recommended Posts

Looks like Best Buy let the cat out of the bag for a new G.I. Joe video game called Operation Blackout. Looks like it will be released for PS4, Nintendo Switch and Xbox. The game was up briefly for pre-order but has since been removed from the site. Check out box art which looks like is based on the new Classified action figure line as well as some screenshots below. We will update when more details on this become available.

I'm more in the retro gaming (A.K.A. nostalgiaf@gs😁) camp, so I won't be playing this, but It will be interesting to know what is happening in the Classified world, since there are no file cards or any other kind of media attached to it.

Anyone else feel like the images are for a turn base rpg? 
I will be interested for more information but my gaming time is limited these day. I still haven’t finished the OuterWorlds so might not get to this one.

This actually looks pretty cool, kinda random, but it looks like it might be like Marvel Ultimate Alliance which would be really rad, probably just play it at a friends house rather then buy though... since I don't really play new games

This looks interesting but I'm still getting caught up games that came out a while ago and I'm not looking forward to getting new ones.

We first told you about this game last month, and now the first official trailer has been released for G.I. Joe: Operation Blackout.
 


The game is coming for PS4, Nintendo Switch and Xbox and will be released in October 13. The game is said to feature an all-new story that will be told on both the side of Joe and Cobra. It is also said to feature Co-Op and PVP Multiplayer features.

Tell me about it. I've had my PS4 for nearly four years and the only games I've played to their conclusion are Until Dawn, Mirror's Edge, and Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite. Made the mistake of playing Until Dawn first, and everything else just kinda paled by comparison.

The only real interest this Joe game holds for me is the introduction of a story to accompany the new figures. Graphically, definitely not the type of game I go for. Give me photo-realism in a first person RPG any day.

Game looks pretty janky in the animation department. I would not buy this at a full 60. Feels like a summer of arcade game from the xbox 360 era. (not saying thats a bad thing) but looks like a low budget shooter. Definitely not up to par with any of the transformers games from the last decade.

I honestly don't think the game has much potential to compete against what's on the market. The video game industry has also changed a lot in recent years and a video game based on a line of toys from the 80's is going to struggle to make itself stand out in a market saturated with AAA and FPS games with more presence in the industry and in the preference of gamers in recent years.

It looks pretty good to me. I'll probably check it out. The only thing I didn't like was Cobra Commander's voice.

LOL, I thought all the voices were pretty weak. My first thought was if they ever do a new cartoon I hope they dont get these guys to do the voices. I look at it from the stand point if you removed the Joe characters and put generic ones in would this game be interesting. From this I have to say no, but it's still early.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and assume Hasbro had a much more polished end-product in mind, but the world situation being what it is, they released what they could. The movie's been delayed, they had to do something to promote the new franchise.

Hope it doesn't bite 'em in the butt.

So, is no one picking up that all the new toy designs are being used in this game and that at the 0:59 mark there's a Lady J moment that's basically giving us our first reveal of what her toy is gonna look like?

It's actually stated in the very first post some of the designs seem to be based on Classified figures, however that doesn't mean everything in the game will be made as a figure. There a number of characters like Zartan and BAT and Sci-Fi featured in the game which we can hope will become figures but dont know if they will. Speaking of which here a few more screenshots that have been released for the game.

Yes, I did pick up on the new toy designs. No I missed Lady Jaye. I did, however, pick up on Storm Shadow.

I really think since this Classified Figures are based on the video game. Hasbro is going to release those characters in the game in future waves...
