  • Battlefield Hardline 'Hotwire' Trailer Shows New Game Mode

    hardline hotwire modeA brand new trailer for EA's, DICE's and Visceral Game's upcoming Battlefield Hardline shows off a brand new unannounced game mode called Hotwire.

    In the new trailer, the Hotwire game mode is explained as a cops n' criminals themed car chase that gives criminals the opportunity to steal numerous marked cars within a level. The cops, in response, must try to recover the marked cars.

    Players in the passenger seat of the marked vehicles will be able to shoot at others whilst the driver is controlling the vehicle, so I expect Hotwire will end up being quite chaotic.

    The trailer honestly makes Hotwire look like a fast paced enjoyable game mode that takes a fresh approach on the typical FPS game modes already seen within the game. However, whilst Hotwire is explained as a game mode with 'high speed chases' I doubt it will turn out to be anything like a race from Need for Speed, and sounds more like a vehicle control gametype similar to party modes we've already seen in games like Halo.

    Whether or not Hotwire will translate as well in the real world as the trailer is portrayed is yet to be seen, but we will soon be able to find out because Battlefield Hardline has been set for a release early next year for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC.

    What are your thoughts on the new Hotwire mode for Battlefield Hardline?

  • Minecraft PS4 Physical Version Gets Solid Release Date

    minecraft ps4Whilst Minecraft for the PlayStation 4 has been available as a digital download from the PlayStation Network since the beginning of this month, many players who have hoped for a retail version of the game have had to hold their breath for a physical release.

    Luckily enough, Mojang has now announced that the physical retail version of Minecraft PS4 is on the way, and players will be able to pick it up from in-store starting from some time in October this year. In Sony's official press release related to the matter, Sony announced that,

    "As many of you will already know, Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition has been available from PlayStation Store since the beginning of the month. Following the successful digital launch, we are pleased to announce that the retail disc version will be available from 3rd October."

    Sony followed on this topic by mentioning the upcoming PS Vita version of Minecraft, and their plans for cross-buy support for the game,

    "In other Minecraft related news, for those waiting for the PS Vita Edition, we'll have more information on this in a few weeks and will include full details on how the Cross-Buy works between the PS3 and PS Vita Editions."

    Despite Minecraft already being one of the top selling games on many other platforms, the PS4 version of the game is proving popular among PlayStation 4 owners, and it's already pulling in many more sales for Mojang, which will ultimately now go to Microsoft.

  • Maps unveiled for Titanfall IMC Rising DLC

    imc rising titanfallRespawn Entertainment have now revealed all three maps for their upcoming third and final Titanfall DLC, IMC Rising, and by the sounds of it, season pass holders of the game are in for quite a treat.

    The first map in the new IMC Rising DLC has been named Sand Trap, which features a network of trenches that are connected within a desert environment.

    Map creator Chris Dionne mentioned that, "One of my main goals with Sand Trap was to use old ideas in new ways. In the center is a buried bunker inspired by the buried architecture in Fracture; this lets Titans stomp around above while pilots scurry below. Across the map are deep trenches that create a well-run highway for pilots; inspired by wall running in Rise they give quick and (relatively) safe routes across the map."

    The second map for IMC Rising is a map focused on various levels of elevation and has been named Blackwater - this will be a map for those looking for some great 360 degrees jetpack-parkour combat.

    The final map is Zone 18, an abandoned IMC base hidden within the wilderness.

    IMC Rising for Titanfall will be released later this year for Xbox 360 and Xbox One - like the DLC packs before it, IMC Rising will be part of the season pass, and season pass holders will be able to pick it up for free, whilst other players will need to pay to access these levels.

  • GTA V for PS4 and Xbox One Might Have First Person Mode

    gta v first personWe've already talked a little bit about the new upcoming features of Grand Theft Auto V for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, but new rumors suggest that there may be even more features planned for the game that Rockstar are yet to reveal.

    One such rumor makes the proposal that Rockstar may have been working on a first person mode for Grand Theft Auto 5, and it may make it's way into the game for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One release.

    Whilst there's no way to confidently confirm or deny these rumors, the source comes from a Rockstar blog reader who supposedly found a 'cached' version of the new gen announcement blog within the Rockstar website's code.

    On the cached version of the website, the first person mode was described as 'A brand new first person mode for vehicles that shows the interior of the vehicle, including working speedometers, tachometers, dash lights, and more.'

    The cached blog post also went on to describe a new first person mode whilst on foot too. It could be possible that these rumors are completely fabricated, and there is in fact no first person mode coming to GTA V on the Xbox One and the PS4, but at the same time there is chance that Rockstar could have spent the time to develop such a system. We'll have to play the waiting game and hope Rockstar responds to the rumors.

  • Metal Gear Solid V Gameplay Shows off Dog Companion

    metal gear solid dog companionAs it turns out, players will be able to obtain a cute puppy companion in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain which will follow the player around throughout the game.

    It has already been revealed that Hideo Kojima's new AI companion system will allow players to pick allies of Snake to join him on missions throughout Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, but a new a gameplay video from Tokyo Game Show reveals a new companion that I think a lot of players are going to learn to love.

    The companion, which has been named the Diamond Dog, is a wolf companion that can be found in-game as a puppy. The game event at the Tokyo Game Show captured the relationship between Snake and the wolf as it grows, and I must admit, it is certainly filled with a lot of 'Aww' moments.

    The Diamond Dog even manages to receive his own eye patch later in the story, too. It must be noted that playing alongside the Diamond Dog, or any other AI companion character is completely optional, and players can choose whether to take these companions on missions with them before they set off to reach their destination.

    Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is set for release at some point in 2015 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and the PC. So far, no solid release date has been announced, but as we near closer to 2015, I expect a confirmation for an exact date for the release of the game will be unveiled.

  • Gameplay for Final Fantasy XV Released

    final fantasy xv gameplayAt Tokyo Game Show this month, Square Enix revealed a gameplay trailer for their upcoming Final Fantasy title, FF XV.

    Whilst the developers have been working on the latest Final Fantasy game since May 2006, it has been a while since we've heard much about being able to finally get our hands on Final Fantasy XV. However, the new gameplay trailer for Final Fantasy XV at the Tokyo Game Show revealed that players would be able to get access to a full one hour gameplay demo of the game.

    Redemption codes for the game demo of Final Fantasy XV will be provided inside copies of Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, and players will be able to redeem their game demo codes in March next year.

    Whilst the main story will give players up to one hour of gameplay, Square Enix mentioned that the demo also comes with around 3 hours of other gameplay if the game demo is fully explored and each dungeon is visited.

    The game demo will mainly focus on battling within the game, not giving player's much choice or exposure to the story or the RPG elements of Final Fantasy XV.

    I'll have to say, from the gameplay trailer, Final Fantasy XV is looking very good, and I expect a lot of fans will be excited for the March 2015 game demo launch. Do you still have much interest for the Final Fantasy franchise after all these years, and if not, has the new gameplay video of Final Fantasy XV managed to impress you at all?

  • Dark Souls 2 DLC Release Pushed Back

    dark souls ivory kingGame release delays happen quite often, but it's rare that we see a DLC pushed backed further than it's planned release date, but this is happened with the latest Dark Souls 2 DLC, Crown of the Ivory King.

    Crown of the Ivory King is set to be the third DLC pack for Dark Souls 2, and has been revealed to take players on a journey through a frozen, abandoned territory that has blinding snowstorms and freezing temperatures to keep players on their feet. Coast of the Ivory King will also come with a wide range of ice themed monsters as well.

    The Crown of the Ivory King DLC pack for Dark Souls 2 was originally planned for release on September 24th, but without much notice, Bandai Namco have announced that they have pushed back the release of the DLC to September 30th for Steam and Xbox Live, and October 1st for the PlayStation Network.

    No explanation was given as to why the DLC was pushed back, but it seems logical to assume that the developers have not had enough time to fully polish the new content.

    On top of the new story content, Crown of the Ivory King will add in a new game mechanic into Dark Souls 2. The new gameplay element, named followers, will allow players to gather AI allies as they progress through the game. Each AI character will be able to help players in tough boss battles to bring down the difficulty.

  • Telltale Games Compilations coming to PS4 and Xbox One

    telltale games ps4 xbox oneIt has now been revealed that Telltale Games are gearing up to release both The Wolf Among Us and The Walking Dead Season 2 for the Xbox One and PS4 this year.

    Both of the episodic series' from Telltale Games will be put up for sale on the digital store, available for players to purchase separately on both the PS4 PlayStation Network and the Xbox One Games Store.

    Whilst the digital versions offer players the flexibility to buy each episode separately, there will also be a physical retail version of each game released around the same time that will include a compilation of all episodes within each game.

    To top this off, a game of the year edition of The Walking Dead Season one will also be released for the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 shortly, and it will include the entirety of Season 1, along with the 400 Days DLC episode.

    Whilst a definitive release date has not yet been revealed, Telltale Games have mentioned that the digital downloads and the retail compilations will be released at some point this November, however it's possible that the PS4 and Xbox One Season 1 GOTY version may not be released till later in the year.

    Whilst the digital versions will be put onto the PS4 and Xbox One, the retail compilations will also be put up for sale for the PS Vita, the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. We'll let you know more as soon as we know a definite release date.

  • Titanfall Receiving Last DLC Pack this Fall

    titanfall third dlc packRespawn Entertainment, the developers behind Titanfall, have just announced details for their third and final DLC pack for their recently released FPS. The new DLC pack will include three new maps that explore unseen places of the Titanfall universe.

    The next DLC pack for Titanfall has been called IMC Rising, so it's likely that the maps will focus on IMC created facilities and locations, as opposed to the previous map packs, Frontier's Edge and Expedition, which focused on scenic areas and Militia mining areas.

    On Frontier's Edge, players were given Dig Site, one of the smallest maps in the game, Export, an interesting map that comes with a "black market" feature that allows players to buy and sell burn cards with in-game currency, and finally Haven, an open map perfect for objective based games.

    Expedition came with Swampland, a map focusing on an alien world's scenery, War Games, a map that took another look at Titanfall's pilot training simulator, and Runoff, a water based level.

    Abbie Heppe, community manager for Respawn Entertainment and Titanfall, revealed at EA's recent press conference that the new IMC Rising DLC pack will "only just begin to explore this universe," in reference to the huge universe that Respawn has created for Titanfall.

    Hopefully we'll hear more about the included maps in IMC Rising in the near future as the map pack is expected to release before the end of this year.

    With this release of the final DLC it's probably time to pick up a Evil Controller. Check out the Master Mod and all the great features it can add to your game style.

  • Batman: Arkham Knight Gets June 2015 Release Date

    arkham knight release dateThe next game in the Batman Arkham series has finally been given the release date treatment by Rocksteady games and we can now confidently say that Batman: Arkham Knight will be releasing next year on June 2015 for current gen consoles.

    Whilst the main version of Batman Arkham Knight can be pre-ordered for $59.99 from various retailers, gamers who are big fans of the series may want to take a look at ordering either of the two limited edition versions of the game instead.

    The standard limited edition will cost $99.99 and will come with an 80 page artbook, issue zero of the Batman: Arkham Knight comic book, three in-game New 52 character skins, a detailed Batman statue and a Steelbook case.

    The limited edition sounds pretty impressive as it is, but this is just the start. For huge fans out there, there is the Batmobile edition. The Batmobile edition will come with all of the above, however the Batman statue will be replaced with a transforming Batmobile statue created by Triforce.

    As mentioned before, Batman Arkham Knight will be released for Xbox One, PS4 and PC in June 2015 next year.

    Batman Arkham Knight was originally planned to release in the 2014 launch window for both the Xbox One and the PS4, but it had since been delayed so that Rocksteady Studios could fully polish the game before releasing it. Guy Perkins, marketing manager for Rocksteady stated that "We feel that we have an absolutely awesome game in the works, and we want to make it as great as it possibly can be," so I personally think the delay is justified here.
