Brace Yourself! It’s The April Fools Day Round Up for 2016

One of the most divisive holidays has come and gone leaving a wake of destruction in it’s path: April Fools Day. It seems like this holiday divides the gaming community like no other, as companies push out fake news or gameplay elements, that can sometimes be an actual good idea.

Personally, I didn’t find this year to be quite as exciting as years past, but there were still a few good pranks on display. What was your favorite from this past Friday? Here’s a few of the ones that got a chuckle out of me.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Gets New Art Direction
by: Eidos Montreal
Tired of the Black & Gold theme of Deus Ex? Yeah, Eidos Montreal would agree with you, which is why they’ve decided to use the recent delay to “fix things” a bit.

In all seriousness, I love the production value on this. It totally reminds me of what Volition did for Red Faction Guerrilla when they announced the Ostrich Hammer. Lets not forget, that this majestic weapon actually made it into the game, so perhaps a Pink and White mode is incoming?
