  • ESO Details Revealed, Including Subscription Drop

    ESO subscription dropMMO fans rejoice, the news you've been waiting to hear since the PC release of the Elder Scrolls Online is finally ready to be heard. That's right, due to a lack of interest, Zenimax have opted to drop the monthly subscription of the Elder Scrolls Online, and it will be opening the game to all players for free.

    The new version of the game has been named The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited, and whilst new players will still need to purchase the base price of the game, the monthly subscription afterwards will no longer be required. Instead, there will be optional in-game content that can be purchased as DLC content, and players can also purchase in-game currency to spend on certain cosmetic and customization options.

    I think it's great to hear that The Elder Scrolls Online has dropped the subscription model. Simply having a one-off fee for the game should be enough as it is, especially considering the game costs as much as a new console game.

    Talking about console games, The Elder Scrolls: Tamriel Unlimited will be releasing on consoles shortly as well. Unfortunately the previous launch dates of the console versions of The Elder Scrolls Online have consistently been pushed back. Whilst the PC version of the new PC ESO will release on March 17th, the console versions for the PS4 and the Xbox One will not be released till late 2014.

    Will you be picking up the ESO now that the subscription has been removed?

  • Master Chief Collection Matchmaking Updates Incoming

    master chief collection matchmakinA new Master Chief Collection update has been planned to improve online matchmaking, but strangely 343 Industries will not make the update available to all players straight away.

    The update, which has since been delayed, was planned to fix many issues with the current in-game matchmaking system. Whilst 343 Industries did mention that they would release the update this month, new plans reveal that most players will not get to experience the update at all.

    Before full release, the matchmaking update will be pushed to a select few US beta participants, and these members will be able to help stress test the matchmaking before it is finally rolled out globally.

    To enter the beta process and be in with a chance of entering the matchmaking beta, you must reside in the US and join the Xbox One preview program. 343 Industries gave a small statement about the update.

    "In recent weeks, we have been conducting extensive internal testing of an upcoming content update for Halo: The Master Chief Collection."
    "Given the scale of the update, which includes changes to the matchmaking experience and party system, we are expanding testing to include select members of the Xbox One Preview program to ensure the official release is the best possible experience for all players.
    "The content update beta test is open to Xbox One owners within North America who have a copy of Halo: The Master Chief Collection and have opted-in for Xbox One beta testing as part of the Xbox One Preview program."
    "This is an opt-in opportunity and the content update will only be made available to selected participants within the Xbox One Preview program, based on the highest levels of engagement with Halo: The Master Chief Collection. On Friday, January 23, participants selected will be prompted to download the content update automatically when the title is started."

  • Gearbox Hiring for Next Borderlands Game

    next borderlands gameOh, hurrah - Gearbox seem to be gearing up for yet another Borderlands game. If you haven't become bored of the franchise already, then you might be excited to hear this news. If you are bored of Borderlands, keep reading, this new game might offer something a little different if a new job listing is anything to go by.

    Gearbox president, Randy Pitchford took to Twitter to post an image asking for any individuals in the games industry to send their CVs to Randy's personal email. In the image, the words "Next Borderlands Team" were written, alongside lots of silhouetted figures. The phrase "This could be you" were written all over the image, which almost suggests that Randy and the guys at Gearbox are looking for a fairly large amount of new people to join their team.

    We've seen a few 'we're hiring' posts by developers in the past that inadvertently lead to us discovering about new upcoming games a little early, but these kind of posts usually offer a handful of positions at most.

    If Gearbox are really planning to recruit a whole new team for their next Borderlands game, does that mean they have something extra ambitious planned? Well, that could be completely possible. As well as linking his email address, Randy Pitchford mentioned that "This is the big one." in reference to the next Borderlands game.

    That sentence is enough to get me excited - I had honestly become bored of the franchise after completing the second game, but it sounds as if Borderlands 3 might be an entirely new beast that could help re-invent the Borderlands universe. If this is the case then I cannot wait to find out more about the game.

  • Uncharted Style Han Solo Game May be In the Works

    han solo gameDisney's purchase of Lucasarts may have caused a few upcoming Star Wars games to be canned, but it looks like the Star Wars name may now be force pushed further into the industry as rumors suggest Disney are gearing up to release another game from the same universe.

    According to the rumors circulating around the supposed Star Wars game, the new title will feature Han Solo as the protagonist. Whilst we know little about the gameplay of the rumored Han Solo game, many believe that the title may end up something a little like the Uncharted series.

    If that is the case, we sure can expect some interesting 3D platforming as well as a lot of explosive action, and maybe a Wookie or two along the way as well. The source of the rumors also suggest that part of the same team currently working on Battlefield Hardline will move over to working on the Han Solo game.

    DICE already has ties with the Star Wars universe and they are currently working on the new gen Battlefront title, but the latest Battlefield game is mostly under the control of another company, Visceral Games.

    Visceral Games do have experience with third person shooters, and previous rumors have suggested that the company are currently working on an "untitled Star Wars" game. There’s certainly a little bit of doubt in us about the likelihood of a Han Solo game appearing, but we’re hoping it could come to light. We expect Visceral could do a pretty good job with it.

  • Call of Duty World at War 2 Rumored

    world at war 2It's always best to be a little skeptical at this time of the year. Around this time, we usually start to hear a thing or two about the next Call of Duty game, but across multiple development teams, it's easy for false information to start circulating.

    With that being said, a current rumor spreading across the internet suggests that the next Call of Duty game will be a sequel to the original World at War. Before we get into the likelihood of such a thing happening or not, I just have to say that a world war game would be an incredibly refreshing change, and I'd absolutely love to see such a game reach the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4.

    In reality though, we can't quite be sure if World at War will be the next Call of Duty game or not. The leak comes from a fairly unreputable source on Twitter. Despite this, it has caused quite a big stir up in the community, and the same leaker has posted similar 'Call of Duty leaks' in the past.

    The trouble is that another insider has denied that such a game will ever come to light, especially not this year. But it's hard to know who to trust - the real industry insider, who may or may not be trying to keep things under wraps, or the fairly unknown leaker who suggests the next game will indeed by World at War 2?

    All we can do is wait for more information. If the rumors are to be trusted, we'll find out more about World at War 2 in May this year.

  • DriveClub Japan DLC Released

    driveclub japan dlcDriveClub developers Evolution Studios have taken to social media to announce a brand new DLC pack that has just launched for their game. The DLC pack, named DriveClub Japan, features a variety of tracks located in Japan.

    What’s most exciting about the news from all this though is that the DLC pack will be put up for free, and all players will be able to get in game and download it. Evolution Studios seem to be pretty thankful of the community feedback at the moment, and as a result it looks like the Japan DLC will be our thank you gift.

    In a post on their Facebook page, Evolution Studios wrote, "Along with our own research and gameplay data analysis, your input has been a big help in shaping all of the tracks we're developing for Japan. Especially the many, many requests for an epic point-to-point like this and for wider tracks to make fighting for position less frustrating, particularly in online races."

    On top of the new free Japan DLC pack, Evolution Studios have confirmed that an expansion pack will be releasing later in January. The second expansion pack for January has been named the Apex expansion, and will fall into the season pass. This pack includes a bunch of new cars, such as the Jaguar C-X75 Concept, Enzo Ferrari and Caterham R500 Superlight.

    Are you happy to hear that Evolution Studios are handing out free DriveClub DLC? Once you’ve managed to try out the Japan tracks, feel free to stop by here and let us know your thoughts on them.

  • MGSV May Be "Biggest Game" According to Troy Baker

    metal gear solid vIn Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Troy Baker voice acts for Ocelot, one of the games characters. Whilst Baker may not be the biggest game nerd in the world, he’s certainly played his fair share of games, and he’s got a lot to say about Metal Gear Solid V.

    In an interview, Troy Baker revealed details about the size of Metal Gear Solid, suggesting that players will be really surprised at how different the game will be to previous titles in the franchise. "I'm anxious to see how people will look at this new Metal Gear, because it's really different. It fits perfectly within the rest of the franchise, and in same ways I think It's going to be really good, but I'm really curious to see what people think."

    Troy Baker then went on to mention that it may even be the "biggest game" he has ever seen. "Just in terms of everything that you can do. Skyrim looks like an afternoon playpen next to it. It's massive. It's absolutely massive in what you can do."

    We all know Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain was planned to be pretty big, but will it really trump Skyrim in size and content? If that is the case, we really have got a treat in store for us when the game releases.

    I'm personally very excited to give Kojima's new project a try. It's clear that he and everyone that has worked on MGSV so far has poured in a huge amount of heart and passion into the game, something that many AAA games feel lacking of these days.

  • Forza Motorsport 6 Is Coming

    forza motorsport 6It looks like Turn 10 have been busy. The next iteration in the lineup of Forza Motorsport games has been announced. Forza Motorsport 6 will be launching exclusively on Xbox One, and Microsoft have teamed up with Ford to give the new Ford GT a starring role in the game.

    Whilst we weren't expecting such an early announcement of Forza 6, Microsoft took to the North American International Auto Show to announce the new game, and it's clear that the Ford GT will be the car to feature on the cover of the upcoming game by Turn 10.

    The release of Forza Motorsport 6 will mark the tenth year anniversary of the game series, so as you can imagine, Turn 10 are feeling like doing something pretty special with the game. Alan Hartman, studio manager for Turn 10 mentioned that, "When we first were doing these, it would be kind of like, 'Hey please, can we have that new car you showed in Detroit?' That's where we were back 10 years ago. But over the last three or four years, the involvement with the manufacturers has really changed. They have really come to recognize that this is a very important venue for them,"

    So as you can imagine, manufacturers are now reaching out to games developers like Turn 10 to have their vehicles featured in their racing games. I think it's a nice transition in the game industry, and it shows that games are just enough of a powerful medium to translate ideas and products like any other.

    Let's just hope this new deal with Ford will allow Turn 10 to put more into the base game and less into extra DLC content like they have done with Forza Motorsport 5.

  • New Battlefield Hardline Details Unveiled

    battlefield hardline mapsEA has just revealed a bunch of new bits of information about their upcoming game, Battlefield Hardline, including details about new maps, weapons and equipment.

    Firstly, the two newly announced maps have been named as Bloodout and Hollywood Hills. As you can imagine, the latter of these two maps places players in a large Hollywood villa. Whilst the level is considerably smaller than some others, the large size of the villa will give players enough space to breathe in.

    The other map, Bloodout, is a set of inner city streets based on real life Los Angeles. The difference between Battlefield Hardline's depiction of LA and the real life LA is that there is a lot more debris, wrecked cars and scrap in Battlefield, as can be expected.

    In other news, Steve Papoutsis, Vice president of Visceral Games and Battlefield Hardline, revealed that there will be a total of 51 weapons and 38 gadgets in Battlefield Hardline. Considering players have access to primary and special weapons, I'd expect we'd be left with a lineup of around 20 different primary weapons to pick from.

    On top of the large variety of weapons, a massive 27 new vehicles are being added to Hardline, although a large pool of these may be varying civilian vehicles or variations of vehicles already in the Battlefield franchise.

    Are you excited to hear about all of the new features in Battlefield Hardline? The game will be releasing on March 17th, so we haven't got too long to wait.

  • Sniper 3 Ultimate Edition Available for Pre-order

    sniper 3 ultimate editionIf you're a fan of the Sniper franchise, you may want to look into picking up the Sniper 3 Ultimate Edition. The extended collector's edition of the game will include various extra digital features that are not available with the base game.

    Unfortunately, there will not be any additional physical content for the Ultimate Edition of Sniper 3, so in a sense, purchasing the Ultimate Edition serves as buying the season pass for the game.

    Inside of the Ultimate Edition, players will receive a 3 part 'Save Churchill' DLC. On top of the DLC, six different weapons packs will be included. The weapons packs available in the Sniper 3 Ultimate Edition have been listed below.

    Hunter Weapons Pack
    Camouflage Weapons Pack
    Patriot Weapons Pack
    Sniper Rifles Weapons Pack
    Axis Weapons Pack
    Eastern Front Weapons Pack

    Additionally to the above content, the Ultimate pack will allow players to access a few new multiplayer modes, including The Shooting Range for single player, the Twilight Strike Overwatch Mission for co-op play, and Capture the Flag for multiplayer.

    Finally, the Ultimate Edition will receive new multiplayer maps, all six of which have been listed.

    Night Watch
    Outpost Canyon
    Plantation
    Lost Valley
    Airstrip
    Fracture

    I find it a little odd that some of this content hasn't been included in the base game, and whilst it's nice to have an easy-access package to all of the Sniper 3 DLC, it's a shame that modes like capture the flag or the Twilight Strike Overwatch mission aren't already available for free.
