As announced and teased at the Game Awards tonight, Fares is working on a new project under publisher Electronic Arts with a team called Hazelight. What is it? Hell if I know!

What could it be?
Aug 07
// Brett Makedonski
Trading in a bloody snowflake for a bloody axe, the second teaser trailer for something that PlayStation's going to talk about at gamescom tells us no more than the first one did. We still have our money on Until Dawn -- the teen horror game that vanished into the ether a few years ago. Hopefully it's not Lumberjack on a Frozen Pond Simulator.
