  • New Tekken 7 Character Revealed

    tekken 7 shaheenA brand new Tekken 7 character has been revealed - the new character is of Arab origins and was previously teased in late 2014. Named Shaheen, the new Tekken 7 character will be joining the full character roster upon Tekken 7's release.

    Previously, a character named Lucky Chloe was announced for Tekken 7, and the developers received a lot of criticism, and as a result, she was removed from the western version of the game.

    At the time, the developers suggested that another character would take the place of Lucky Chloe, but it's unclear whether Shaheen was designed to be the replacement character, or whether he was planned to be released alongside Lucky Chloe.

    Either way, it's likely that there may be more characters planned for reveal for Tekken 7 in the near future. Previously, a latin American character named Katarina was announced, and a male counterpart, Claudio was revealed alongside her.

    That means there are currently four new characters we know about so far, and previous Tekken characters will also be making a return, including Kazuya, Paul Phoenix, King and Heihachi.

    So far, it's looking like the lineup for Tekken 7 may be the best yet - there is certainly a large variety of cultures within the upcoming game, and both seasoned players and newcomers to the series should enjoy the wide variety of characters to choose from.

    Tekken 7 will be released exclusively in Japan arcades this February for a short time, before being released to consoles in the East, and then in the West further on in the year.

  • Tony Hawk Confirms New PS4 Skateboarding Game

    tony hawk ps4Good news, everybody! At this years CES, Tony Hawk showed up at Sony's keynote to reveal some pretty exciting news. According to Hawk, there is a new project currently in development for the PlayStation 4 that Tony Hawk is getting involved with.

    As you can guess, yes it will be a skateboarding game, but besides this obvious fact it’s unclear what we can expect. Further details were not given about the upcoming Tony Hawk skateboarding game for the PlayStation 4.

    Earlier in 2014, Tony Hawk did mention that there was something "fans of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater series will be hyped" about. Could this mean we may see a more traditional Tony Hawk Pro Skater game?

    Hopefully this is the case - the last two Tony Hawk games used external skateboard peripherals, and as soon as this started, the Tony Hawk series went downhill, literally and figuratively.

    If Tony Hawk moves back to a more button mashin' style approach for the PlayStation 4, I'm sure a lot of fans of the series will be very, very happy.

    Before the two 'ride' games by Tony Hawk, Proving Ground and Project 8 were released - these took a step closer to more realistic skateboarding, and it was a move that divided the Tony Hawk player base.

    It's clear at this point that the most successful Tony Hawk games were the humorous, not-so-realistic games, so hopefully Activision keeps this in mind. Would you be interested in a new Tony Hawk game?

  • Tekken 7 Introduces 2-Player "Same Side" Fighting

    tekken 7 fightingIn a new announcement, Bandai Namco have revealed that Tekken 7 will have a brand new game mechanic that could help some players who struggle adapting to different sides of the screen.

    Within Tekken 7, players will now be able to head into the settings menu and choose which side they would like their character to be displayed on. Once chosen, players will be able to jump into a game, and the camera will either remain stable, or will flip, depending on what side the player chose within the settings menu.

    In previous Tekken games, players were forced to play on whichever side of the screen was assigned to them, so this new feature in Tekken 7 should come as a pleasant surprise.

    To explain it better - imagine player 1 gets paired up against a player online. Player 1 takes the left side of the screen, whilst player 2 takes the right side. Player 1 may have put the right side as their preference, and as a result, the camera will be flipped to make it appear as if their character is on the side of the screen they like to use the most.

    Flipping the camera will mean that directional moves and combos will also be affected. Personally, I think this is a nice option for new players, but veteran Tekken players will most likely prefer to avoid using this feature.

    Some may even argue that it’s an important part of the game to be able to adapt to whichever screen side you start on. What are your thoughts on this new Tekken 7 feature?

  • PlanetSide 2 PS4 Beta Coming This Month

    planetside 2 ps4At long last, the PlanetSide 2 beta is finally making it's way to the PlayStation 4. Announced before the console was even released, PlanetSide 2 is a free to play FPS sci-fi shooter that features huge open world battles between three different player factions.

    Each faction must work together to call out strategies in an attempt to take control of different areas of territory within the open world. As a player works towards capturing territory and defending faction outposts, experiences and credits will be rewarded.

    Experience will go towards unlocking new items, whilst credits can be used to purchase the items. As you can imagine, there is a third currency that players can earn by spending real money on the game.

    The in-game currency can be used to fast track players towards better equipment, but everything, besides cosmetic items, can be earned by simply playing the game. It does, however, take quite a long time to accumulate enough credits and experience to purchase some of the higher tiered items.

    The closed beta for PlanetSide 2 on the PlayStation 4 will launch on the 20th of January, although it will be restricted to a few thousand players to start, and only those who previously signed up for beta access will be given a key.

    Once the closed beta has finished, the PS4 version of PlanetSide 2 will then go back into development, before presumably opening up to another closed or open beta later on in the year.

  • Dead Kings DLC for Assassin's Creed Unity Detailed

    dead kings dlcUbisoft have just released more information on the first of many upcoming DLC releases planned for Assassin's Creed Unity. The DLC in question has been named Dead Kings, and it will feature a new story, new enemies and even a new weapon.

    Dead Kings takes place right after the ending of Unity, following Arno as he leaves Paris for another city named Saint Denis. In this city, a series of underground crypts has been rumored to keep the bodies of dead French kings.

    As you can imagine, the Dead Kings DLC will follow Arno as he makes his way down into the crypt. Arno will fight against other crypt raiders, as well as having access to an interestingly named Guillotine gun.

    On top of the new single player story, there will be some new open world activities, including new murder mysteries, enigmas and a few co-op missions as well.

    If you were unaware, the Dead Kings DLC has been put up for free by Ubisoft as an apology gift for the games terrible launch. On top of this, season pass holders will be given a free game as a reward for buying into Assassin's Creed Unity.

    Out of the free games, season pass holders can choose between The Crew, Far Cry 4, Assassin's Creed Black Flag, Rayman Legends, Watch Dogs, Rayman Legends or Just Dance 2014.

    Will you be picking up a free game from the list above? If so, which game will you aim for? I definitely think Far Cry 4 and The Crew are the top picks, but Watch Dogs and AC: Black Flag could be a good choice if you've already got the other two games.

  • Elder Scrolls Online May Get February Xbox One Launch

    elder scrolls online launchSo, the Elder Scrolls Online has been quietly chugging along on the PC for a year now, but the release of the console version of the game has been delayed to a point where nobody knows when it's going to come.

    In fact, there was a point where some gamers believed Zenimax had completely abandoned the console port. Recently, it was revealed that Zenimax have still been working on the Xbox One and PS4 version of the Elder Scrolls Online, but they don't want to release it until they have reached a certain developmental milestone with the PC version.

    We are surprisingly nearing closer to that point each and every day, and Zenimax have been rumored to be gearing up for a console launch fairly soon. This week, a Microsoft store listing appeared for the Elder Scrolls Online, along with a date which read as the 24th of February.

    Shortly after this date was added to the website, the store listing was changed, and the release date is now listed as "2015."

    It seems odd that Microsoft would make a specific listing on their store without receiving information from Zenimax themselves, so it could be very possible that the Elder Scrolls Online will release for Xbox One, and most likely the PS4, on the 24th of February.

    It sounds as though this is a placeholder date though, and if development hits any snags, it could easily be pushed back a month or two. Either way, the console version of the Elder Scrolls Online really isn't that long off now.

  • Digital Pre-orders for Evolve Will Reward Players Free Content

    digital evolve pre-ordersIf you are looking to buy Evolve, you may want to consider getting a pre-order in. The developers of Evolve have just announced that the game has gone gold, and to celebrate they are offering some in-game rewards for anybody that chooses to pre-order the digital copy of the game.

    If you pre-order the digital version of Evolve on the Xbox One, you will be given free access to the open beta that is going to take place on January 15th. This beta will included one monster named Wraith, and four hunters, named Parnell, Abe, Caira and Cabot.

    As well as having a little sneaky access to this content in the beta version of Evolve, players who pre-order the digital version of the game for Xbox One will also be given the same five characters at launch for free, straight from day one.

    Those who do not pre-order Evolve, or who play on another platform, will need to unlock the aforementioned characters to be able to play as them.

    This seems like a nice deal for those who want to support the game by pre-ordering, but it oddly is only available for digital pre-orders. If you have already pre-ordered a physical copy then you will not be given early access to the five hunters and the one monster once the game has launched later this year.

    Do you think it's smart for Microsoft to offer a deal such as this, or do you think they should open up the pre-order bonuses to all versions and platforms of Evolve?

  • All Destiny Players Given Free Legendary Item

    destiny legendary itemSome players are excited, some are frustrated, but the truth is, Bungie have tried to give something back to the community as a 'thank you' for the continued support the large majority of Destiny players have given to the game since it's launch.

    This 'thank you' is in the form of a legendary weapon - every player can now hop into game, no matter what version of the game you are playing, and go speak to the postmaster to pick up a free legendary.

    Whilst legendaries have proven to be pretty hard to get in the game, this is the first time Bungie have given players such easy access to a legendary weapon, and it's just any old legendary weapon either.

    The item from the postmaster will reward players with a ticket that will be randomly converted into any legendary item in the game. Legendaries aren't as rare as exotic, but it still takes a lot of farming, or a lot of luck to land upon your first legendary item, so some players are frustrated that Bungie have handed out something of such rarity for free.

    However, it looks as if there may be a certain limit to what weapons are rewarded from the ticket, so don't fret too much, chances are your current legendary gear will remain as rare as it always has been.

    Do you think it was a good move for Bungie to give out a free legendary weapon to every player, or do you think players should have been rewarded with something a little less special instead?

  • Far Cry 4 DLC Gets January Release Date

    far cry 4 dlcIt has been revealed that the first DLC of Far Cry 4 from Ubisoft will be released in January 13th. The new DLC pack has been named Escape from Durgesh Prison, and it will include a variety of new features.

    For those that have purchased the $29.99 season pass, Escape from Durgesh Prison will be available for free, however other players will need to pay $9.99 to play through it. In Escape from Durgesh Prison, Far Cry protagonist Ajay Ghale will be partnered up with Hurk, a slightly mad veteran players may recognize from Far Cry 3.

    As you can expect, players will need to try to escape a prison in the upcoming Far Cry 4 DLC, and this can be done solo or co-operatively with a friend or stranger online. So far, details are still on the low as far as length and story goes for the new DLC, but it has been confirmed that there will be a unique permadeath setting for the DLC.

    When a player dies in Escape from Durgesh Prison, they will be forced to start again from the beginning, and the gameplay has been set out in a way that encourages players to learn how to get through each scenario successfully each and every time without dying.

    Because of the permadeath feature I can't imagine Escape from Durgesh Prison will be that long if played without dying, but I also expect that it will take at least a few hours to perfect the DLC content without you or your friend being killed.

  • COD Advanced Warfare Zombies Trailer Released

    cod advanced warfare zombiesIn anticipation of the release of the new Havoc DLC planned for the end of January, Call of Duty Advanced Warfare developers, Sledgehammer Games, have just released a new trailer for the upcoming Exo Zombies game mode, which will be made available as part of the upcoming DLC.

    Interestingly, the trailer shares a bit of a backstory into why there is a sudden zombie outbreak, and why a group of soldiers are attempting to hold off the relentless hordes. In the trailer, the story is explained -

    "Untrained and unprepared, four Atlas employees must survive a horror unlike any other. John Malkovich, Bill Paxton, Rose McGowan, and Jon Bernthal star in Exo Zombies, coming to Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare DLC in 2015."

    It seems as if the zombies mode will be released as an episodic co-operative multiplayer mode. Whilst we aren't entirely sure, it would make sense to assume that each episode of the zombies mode will release alongside each piece of DLC for Call of Duty Advanced Warfare.

    For zombie fans, I think that the new zombie mode in Advanced Warfare is worth getting excited about - the game will feature a new twist on the tried and trusted zombies gameplay we have seen in previous COD games by adding super fast exo zombies that make use of the exo skeleton featured in Call of Duty Advanced Warfare.

    So far, we aren't sure how much content players will be able to play through in the first episode of exo zombies, but hopefully there will be maps that players can play a more traditional round based version of zombies on.
