  • Character Customization Revealed in Sunset Overdrive

    sunset overdrive character customizationA brand new video has been released by Insomniac Games at this year's San Diego Comic-Con, and it shows off the various character customization options available in their latest upcoming game, Sunset Overdrive. So far, we haven't seen a huge amount of depth into the options players will have in Sunset Overdrive, but the new Comic-Con trailer shows that we'll definitely be able to dress in style.

    When creating a character in Sunset Overdrive, players will be able to choose their gender, ethnicity and body type, along with other options to create a character that looks unique. Once a character has been made, players will be able to find various types of clothing and gear that can be worn and switched out at any time.

    In a game as wacky as Sunset Overdrive, you really can't expect any sets of clothes that are really that normal, and instead players will be able to mix and match various crazy post-apocalyptic costumes, casual clothes and other odd pieces of clothing to create something humorously wacky.

    Players will be able to don their new costumes in single player, as well as in online co-op mode alongside up to seven other players.

    Sunset Overdrive is set for release on October 28th in North America and October 31st in Europe, and will be exclusive to the Xbox One. Players who pre-order the title, whether the digital or the physical version, will be given a range of different pre-order bonuses in-game.

  • Assassins' Creed Unity Live Demo Showcased

    assassins creed unity demoThis week Ubisoft shared an eight minute long video at San Diego Comic-Con showing off gameplay footage of their latest title, Assassins' Creed Unity. Whilst the footage hasn't been professionally released to the public, a (rather shaky) recording of the eight minute live demo has been making rounds on the web, and despite it's rather poor quality, the game is looking pretty good.

    Assassins' Creed Unity is said to take the previous games in the franchise and improve upon the core experience those games have offered by making the gameplay experience feel more streamlined and open. For example, in Assassin's Creed Unity, in some instances failing a mission will not force the player to restart, and will instead force them to find another way to amend the mistakes they made before going for the main objective that players tried to accomplish in the first mission.

    Assassins' Creed Unity will also have a large focus on online co-operative content, which will be separated from the singleplayer gameplay. As expected, thanks to the new hardware in the PS4 and the Xbox One, Unity is expected to look a whole lot nicer, and pretty much every element from background details to combat animations will have an overhaul.

    Assassins' Creed Unity is set for release this year on October 28th, and will be available on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and the PC. Last gen consoles, such as the Xbox 360 and PS3, will not receive a version of AC: Unity.

  • Tekken 7 Extended Trailer Shown at Comic-Con

    Tekken 7 extended trailerAfter the recent pre-announcement slip-up for Tekken 7 earlier in the month, it looks like Bandai Namco have taken to the stage at this year's Comic-Con to do themselves justice. The developers of the latest Tekken games have just released a brand new extended trailer to officially announce Tekken, without any leaks getting in the way this time.

    The new Tekken 7 trailer is just over 3 minutes in length, and depicts part of the story the franchise the game has already laid out in previous games. Whilst it may be an exciting watch for many fans of the franchise, the latest extended Tekken 7 trailer didn't really do enough to draw many people in, and it will definitely have a tough time going up against Mortal Kombat X, a game which has recently had a reveal trailer that depicts some very epic fight scenes.

    Whilst we haven't seen any actual gameplay of Tekken 7 yet, we can expect the game to look absolutely incredible, thanks to the new Unreal Engine 4, which series game director and producer Katsuhiro Harada announced the game to be developed on.

    It will definitely be a fierce battle between Mortal Kombat X and Tekken 7, and I personally cannot wait to see some actual live gameplay of both games in the near future.

    Tekken 7 has not yet got a set release date, however it is likely that the game will be released within the next year. Tekken 7 will definitely make it to the PS4 and Xbox One, but it could possible be released for the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 as well.

  • New GTA 5 Jobs Take Inspiration From Previous Games

    gta 5 franchise jobsDespite releasing new Rockstar verified jobs just last week, Rockstar have just approved a bunch of new jobs that focus on content paying homage to previous games in the Grand Theft Auto franchise.

    If you're a big fan of Grand Theft Auto, and have played through the various other games in the franchise released in the past by Rockstar, you may be interested to try out the new Rockstar verified jobs on GTA 5.

    In total, there are nine new missions, each paying homage to a different game in the GTA franchise, including references to Chinatown Wars, GTA 3, GTA 4, Vice City and San Andreas. The new Rockstar verified jobs can be read below.

    TA III
    Team Deathmatch: The Exchange by JIIThe_JokerIIK (Xbox 360)
    Here we see the explosive final mission of GTAIII reimagined as a Deathmatch alongside the Land Act Dam. Extra points awarded for authenticity here as JIIThe_JokerIIK has carefully placed props to match Claude's final showdown with the Colombian Cartel. We recommend seizing control of the Buzzard quickly to gain the edge if you're playing this with one with your Crew.

    Team Deathmatch: Bomb da Base by DuPz0r (PS3)
    This Deathmatch - based on Act II of Bomb da Base in GTAIII, where Claude and 8-Ball blow up the Les Cargo ship - offers its own fair share of bang for the buck on a shipping vessel docked just off the Port of South Los Santos terminal. Be sure to check out the empty containers raised from the ground for some juicy firepower, though beware - someone else might have gotten there first...

    GTA Vice City
    Team Deathmatch: Four Iron by auclair-O_o (PS3)
    Tommy Vercetti had to check his firearms at the door at Leaf Links in Vice City. Luckily, they seem to be far more liberal on weapon checks at the Los Santos Golf Club. In this Deathmatch remake of the Four Iron mission in VC, you'll find a few handguns scattered around the greens and fairways. Of course there are plenty of golf clubs lying around in case you feel like working on your short game.

    GTA: San Andreas
    Race: Farewell, My Love... by iLewisGTA (Xbox 360)
    After Carl Johnson spurned the dangerous affections of Catalina in San Andreas, she pit her new boyfriend (a certain strong, silent type) against CJ in a race around Red County. In his GTA Online remake, iLewisGTA has selected Coupes as the default vehicle for authenticity and really nailed the tight, slippery corners of the original circuit around The Panopticon in Red County. A major Rockstar fan, Lewis had made a bunch of Throwback Jobs that you can check out on his Social Club profile.

    Race: Valet Parking by DrHoctor (Xbox 360)
    "Being a valet at the Richman Hotel has its perks, like all the nice cars that pull in. -Borrow- one of them and take it for a test drive" says DrHocter's description to this Lap Race, based on the valet parking side mission from San Andreas. Starting and ending at the Richman Hotel, and weaving through the tight Morningwood streets, there's a lot more to it than parking for sure. Watch out for approaching opponents along the looped section and try to get the customers' cars back without a scratch.

    Race: High Stakes, Low Rider by thewolfking90 (PS3)
    Top marks for authenticity go to thewolfking90 for this Race, which nicely captures the feel of its inspiration - the High Stakes, Low Rider mission in San Andreas. Set to Muscle Cars and finishing up at Del Perro Pier, you can almost feel Cesar Vialpando bearing down on your rear bumper. The choice to set West Coast Classics as the default radio station is a lovely nod to the classic wessyde vibe as well.

    GTA IV
    Capture: GTA: Lost Angels by RikkiVercetti (Xbox 360)
    Inspired by the conflict between The Lost and the Angels of Death in The Lost and Damned, this Capture Job from prolific GTA Online Creator RikkiVercetti pits two teams in a proxy war for these two notorious motorcycle clubs, each tasked with stealing the signature rides from the other group. A broad stretch of rolling hills between West Vinewood and Stab City ensure that in this large capacity Capture you'll need to spread out and leave skilled defenders to protect your precious hogs from getting stolen. Sawed-off Shotguns and Molotovs as the default weapons setting also force you to pick your shots and cover choices wisely when nearing the enemy base.

    GTA: Chinatown Wars
    Capture: Chinatown Wars by Choc_late (Xbox 360)
    This is an intimate, close quarters Capture amidst the urban neon and colorful lanterns of West Vinewood's Mission Row. Expect a heavy exchange of gun fire as two teams battle it out for domination of the central alleyway where the Capture Objects are to be found. The situation is further intensified by the accurate resident gang members who carry equal contempt for both teams as well as high-grade firearms. Respawning in Canis Mesas means either bag is never far away, so stake your claim on cover to protect your teammates during a desperate grab.

    Team Deathmatch: Chinatown Wars by WinR4R (PS3)
    Attrition across the rooftops or balls-out carnage in Sinners Passage - this Deathmatch features well thought out weapon placement ensuring that each match outcome here in Textile City has the potential to play out differently.

    Start up you're new GTA V job with a brand new custom Evil Controller. Our controllers are the best in the business and offer the widest selection of customization. Don't just game with the normal controller check out what it's like to use an Evil Controller.

  • Telltale Games' The Walking Dead Season 3 In The Works

    walking dead season 3Telltale Games have managed to be incredibly successful with their story-driven The Walking Dead game series, and it looks like it's been so successful that the development team are already working on a third season for the project.

    Revealed this week via the developer's official Twitter page, Telltale Games announced that there was going to be a third season to their The Walking Dead video game series, and a few details about their development were shared at Comic-Con in San Diego.

    Unfortunately, the developers really didn't go into much detail other than confirming that they are planning to work on a third season for the Walking Dead, however the release date, and the date they start actively developing the game aren't known.

    Telltale Games are currently already piled in with work from The Wolf Among Us, The fifth episode of The Walking Dead in Season 2, and Tales of The Borderlands, so it may be a while before we finally see progress on the third The Walking Dead Telltale Games season.

    Interestingly, Telltale Games are also working on an adventure story game based on HBO's Game of Thrones, and after the undoubted success of that, it's very likely they'll have many other movie, TV and game creators asking to partner up with them on future projects.

    What Telltale Games do is quite unique, and I'm pretty excited to see various other projects being worked on from the same development team, such as Tales from the Borderlands, so we'll definitely have enough content to enjoy whilst waiting for The Walking Dead season 3.

  • Next Mass Effect Game 'Years Away'

    next mass effect gameWhilst members from BioWare have mentioned quite a lot about the future of the Mass Effect series since the last game was released, it's unlikely that we'll see the next Mass Effect game any time soon.

    In fact, according to the game producer for the Mass Effect franchise, Mike Gamble, the next Mass Effect game is 'years away' from completion, which means that we probably won't be seeing anything solid about Mass Effect 4 for quite a while, and it's final release may be stretched out to 2017, or perhaps even further.

    Mike Gamble revealed this information at a session at this year's San Diego Comic-Con, along with some other details on the next Mass Effect Game.

    Firstly, according to Gamble, it's likely that the Mako, a rough-terrain vehicle seen in the first two games, will most likely make a return to the fourth title in the Mass Effect series, and players may also get to see some familiar faces from previous games.

    It is important to note that the new Mass Effect game will not focus on Commander Shepard or any of the other character's within Shepard's crew, however previous characters from the franchise may appear as cameos.

    In the past, BioWare talked about potential plans to turn the fourth Mass Effect game into something completely different to the first three, however at this point I'm really not sure what that could be, although we do know there will be a large focus on exploration in the next Mass Effect game.

  • FIFA 15 Gameplay Trailer Released

    fifa 15 emotions trailerA brand new gameplay trailer has just been released for the upcoming EA Sports title, FIFA 15. Showcasing new crowds, player interactions and unique behaviour both for players and crowds, the trailer points out the 'emotion and intensity' the franchise has started to pick up on.

    Whilst the new changes to crowd and player emotions isn't exactly a huge gameplay feature, it's nice to see just how far the franchise has come in terms of capturing the spirit that many fans and players experience on the real pitch.

    Unsurprisingly, Lionel Messi will make it to the front cover box art for FIFA 15, for many regions across the globe.

    Despite showing some great advancements in crowd and player behaviour in the latest trailer for FIFA 15, EA have also stated that not all platforms will offer the same experience, which is most likely due to both hardware limitations and console exclusivity deals.

    For example, only Xbox consoles will receive FIFA 15 Ultimate Legends, which will most likely be a life time exclusive for the Xbox One and Xbox 360.

    FIFA 15 has been scheduled for launch later this year on September 29th, for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 & 3, Wii, 3DS, Vita and the PC.

    It will be interesting to see how each version differs from one another, especially when considering the game has been set to launch on the Wii, 3DS and the PS Vita. Surprisingly, the Wii U has been left out of the picture.

  • New Multiplayer The Last of Us DLC Planned

    last of us dlcDespite Naughty Dog recently putting a lot of effort into The Last of Us Remastered for the PlayStation 4, they still have been working on plans for more The Last of Us content, namely new DLC.

    However, unlike the first DLC pack, any future content for The Last of Us will be exclusive to multiplayer, leaving the main story untouched.

    Whilst the story of The Last of Us is it's main selling point, it makes sense that Naughty Dog don't want to water it down with DLC content that isn't perhaps too related to the main story, and any extra multiplayer content will most likely be appreciated.

    When asked about DLC, community strategist for Naughty Dog, Arne Meyer stated that "We just wanted to say when we released the Remastered version, we know there's a lot of DLC out there, and that we weren't going to stop supporting both the PS3 and PS4 versions. We do have some DLC planned [but] it'll be multiplayer-focused. We're not ready to talk about the details yet, but throughout the rest of the year we'll have some DLC drops."

    What are your thoughts on Naughty Dog's stance on multiplayer DLC for The Last of Us? I personally haven't had much time in the multiplayer portion of the game, but it's certainly peaked my interest at times.

    The Last of Us Remastered, which comes bundled with all current DLC for the PS3 version of the game, will be released July 29th.

  • 10 New Jobs Added to GTA Online

    gta online hipster jobsThe GTA Online content creator has done itself proud. Ever since it's launch, players have been creating their very own content to keep themselves entertained within the world of GTA Online. Occasionally, we'll see some super great jobs from the content creator, and these often end up becoming Rockstar verified, meaning that they get thrown into the pool of jobs Rockstar have created themselves.

    This week, 10 new jobs have been added to the Rockstar verified section, including a bunch of missions related to the recent Hipster content update. Below, details of the various new jobs can be seen.

    1. Dubsta Warz - created by Darteyld: Put the climbing ability of your new Dubsta to the test in this point-to-point Race where roads are for the weak. Starting out on Chumash Beach, get to the edge of the Grand Senora Desert as the crow flies, crossing mountains and scaling vertiginous slopes under twilight.

    2. The 80's Turf War - created by GAMRZ_UK_SLiCkZ3: This neighborhood gang shootout uses over the top, action movie inspired weapons and careful placement of the cars included in the "I'm Not a Hipster" Update to give Grove Street a vintage feel. Players start with a Micro SMG and a handful of ammo, though more powerful weapons can be picked up if you can find them. The scarcity of ammo here encourages a varied approach, whether it's stalking the rooftops or demonstrating that the bonnet of a Glendale is not the best cover when there are RPGs flying around.

    3. Panto-monium Microcircuit - created by THEKerles: Proving that the Panto isn't just for old ladies and tree huggers, this intimate Lap Race is a test of car control and the ability to find the correct racing line. Expect tense bumper-to-bumper action, with very little runoff around some of the sharpest corners. You'll want to make the most of the few overtaking opportunities available.

    4. Swedish Folkrace - created by MaximilianR18: Swedish Folkrace is a mixture of tarmac and off-road racing for inexpensive road vehicles - perfect for some of the cars featured in the "I'm Not a Hipster" Update. MaximilianR18 - a member of both the CREATOR CORE CLUB and GTA Content Creators Crews - has introduced this local pastime to GTA Online, adding slippery turns that make for an intense Lap Race with plenty of sideways action. As the description suggests, try this one in your customized Warrener.

    5. HIPSTER DEATH RALLY - created by diggzzzz: The dirt roads by Senora Airstrip are the stage for this high speed off-road Race well suited to the "I'm Not a Hipster" Update cars. Watch out for the oil container on the first corner, or you could find yourself going out with the wrong kind of bang. There's also a ramp around half way to potentially slow you down or, if you come off a slipstream at just the right time, provide an opportunity for a stylish aerial overtake.

    6. The Coil - Created by Wormbo: A hair-raising Race for Supercars that snakes around the oval ring roads at Los Santos International Airport and then down a sharp detour past the Sightings restaurant and back again. Prepare for white knuckles gripping steering wheels and game controllers as you hurtle around fast sweeping curves, along single track overpasses or through the chicanes and hairpins around the restaurant. Long narrow sections overlap several times, maximizing potential for some spectacular high-speed crashes.

    7. The Los Santos Triangle - Created by Ma1evo1ent Cheese: After the Verification of Farm Fresh, Ma1evo1ent Cheese comes up with the goods once again with this short, technical Race with tight, Grand Prix-style corners that will push your car handling skills to the breaking point. Leave traffic off and go with Non-Contact to ensure that there are no distractions as you gun each lap trying to improve on your personal best. The default Supercar class will get around the course pretty quick, so go for a full 4 laps to really get a feel for it.

    8. Loop the Lake - created by twisterrk: This is a beautifully simple Lap Race around the Vinewood Lake that provides fantastic views of the Vinewood sign, the Galileo Observatory and the Downtown Los Santos skyline. Try not to get distracted by the scenery as you battle for position on a narrow curving road. Aggressive maneuvers will pay off, but don't be afraid to use the brake to avoid getting trapped behind the low tire walls at several corners. This Race plays well with most vehicle classes but try Muscle or Sports for a more technical challenge. Creator twisterrk is a member of the Reddit Dads Crew - specifically designed for those whose family commitments limit the time that they have to play GTA Online. If that's a familiar issue, get involved!

    9. Pit Stop - Created by IckyQualms: Thematically similar to previous verified Deathmatch Lodge Battle, this is a tight TDM map with plenty of hazards - don't linger too long by the fuel tanks! Pit Stop takes place in an underappreciated area of the map just off the Palomino freeway. Head off-piste to find the lone sniper rifle or make a play for the array of melee weapons to get a jump on unsuspecting opponents coming around corners.

    10. Retaliate - Created by gun_harmony: A tight Deathmatch map that makes for a small, frantic 2-team TDM or compact free-for-all. A compact setup with good use of vertical space, plenty of cover and opportunities to flank the enemy team. Head in with your Crew for an 8v8 battle and seek retribution on any Crews you've got beef with.

    The 10 new jobs should already be available in-game, along with previous Rockstar verified missions.

  • Want To Plank On Your Enemies In Killzone: Shadow Fall? Pay $2 and You Can!

    killzone fart packNo, I'm not kidding - Guerrilla Games have just released a brand new DLC pack that will allow players to fart on their fallen enemies. The new "Fun & Games Spotlight Pack" for Killzone Shadowfall was recently released for the PlayStation 4, and it comes with a wide range of benefits.

    Along with being able to perform farts at will, players who purchase and download the Fun & Games Spotlight Pack for Killzone Shadowfall will also be able to perform other 'comedy actions' such as planking and strange humiliating moves that should help bring the rage out in your enemies.

    The new actions have been called spotlight moves, and they can all be accessed by purchasing the $2 Fun & Games Spotlight DLC pack.

    I've noticed a lot of gamers and critics seem to be a bit disappointed with the whole idea, but personally I see nothing wrong with it. Players do not have to spend a penny on these Spotlight moves, and unlike other DLC content out there, purchasing the Spotlight pack doesn't offer players any real gameplay benefits over other players.

    The Spotlight pack simply serves as a way for fans to support their devs even further whilst having a little fun doing so. If you do buy the Fun & Games Spotlight pack, just please make sure to use it with caution. We're not responsible for any angry hate mail you may receive for farting on or intimidating your opponents.
