  • Project Cars Will Have 110 Race Tracks on Launch Day

    project carsSlightly Mad Studios has just released a bunch of information about Project Cars in anticipation for it's launch next month. According to the development team, Project Cars will come with 30 different locations and there will be 110 different courses spread out across these locations.

    All of the locations and race tracks in Project Cars have been based on places in the real world, and from what we've seen so far Slightly Mad Studios has done a good job to replicate these locations using incredible detail.

    Whilst a lot of the race tracks are unique spots, some tracks are slight variations of the same race course. For example, the Sakito circuit in Japan has four layouts including GP, National, International and Sprint. Each of these layouts count as a separate track out of the 110 tracks that will be in the base game when Project Cars launches.

    It's surprising that Project Cars has been delayed so many times since it was first announced but this new information about the game comes as an extra confirmation that the latest release date is final.

    Project Cars is now set to release on May 8 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Slightly Mad Studios has also talked about releasing a version for the Wii U but we have not heard anything about this for quite some time now. It's likely we may hear more about the Wii U once the launch for the other consoles has come out of the gate.

  • Mortal Kombat X 1.02 Patch Fixes Bugs

    mortal kombat x 1.02For the most part Mortal Kombat X has been released without too many problems but it seems nowadays you can't have a game release without some kind of bugs or issues. Fortunately, NetherRealm Studios has been working round the clock to ensure everything is as smooth as possible.

    Recently, the 1.02 patch was applied to Mortal Kombat for the PC, Xbox One and PS4 and it brings a number of changes and bug fixes to the game.

    Perhaps the biggest noticeable changes to Mortal Kombat X in 1.02 are some tweaks to general gameplay and certain character’s move sets. Below the major game changes have been listed.

    General - Throws (regular or command grabs) will no longer sometimes connect on a grounded reacting opponent off a counter hit

    Shinnok (Impostor) - He can now control the location of a stolen Goro Stomp.

    Subzero (Grandmaster) - Combos on a grounded opponent frozen by the Ice Klone will now scale properly.

    Takeda (Ronin) - Added a new move "Quick Kall" (Down, Towards, Front Punch) which quickly returns a dropped blade without doing an attack.

    Takeda (Shirai Ryu) – He will now always teleport to the other side when doing the Air Shirai Ryu Port

    On top of the changes to gameplay, NetherRealm Studios gave out a free Klassic Sub-Zero skin to all players to say thank you for putting up with the few launch issues. The PC version also received a number of unique fixes for online lag and performance problems.

  • New Halo 5 Pre-order Trailer Released

    Halo 5 pre-orderA brand new Halo 5: Guardians trailer has been released by Microsoft and GameStop showing off a set of armor that will be rewarded to players who pre-order Halo 5 from the video game retailer.

    The armor will be given to anybody who pre-orders Halo 5 from any GameStop store in the United States. There hasn't been any details on how long players will have to pre-order to be eligible for the bonus but it is clear that you'll definitely need to order Halo 5 before it is released.

    So far, no other retailers have given details on any pre-order bonuses, so GameStop is definitely looking like a good place to pick up Halo 5 so far. On top of the armor, players will be able to get a free poster for pre-ordering Halo 5 as well. Below, details about the bonus armor has been described.

    HUNTER-Class Armor: Sophisticated and lethal, HUNTER-class armor incorporates Watershed Division's latest warfighting technology.

    HUNTER-Class Helmet: Though still considered a prototype implementation, the HUNTER's sensor suite enhances situational and threat awareness.

    The HUNTER-class armor is the same armor that Agent Locke wears, and it seems like players who do not pre-order will not be able to pick up the same armor. Even though the armor is most likely just cosmetic, I personally think it seems a bit unfair that some players won't be able to dress as Agent Locke in Halo 5, especially considering he will be playing a very important role in the story of Halo 5: Guardians.

  • Star Wars Battlefront Release Date Announced

    star wars battlefrontA whole bunch of new information about Star Wars Battlefront has been revealed by DICE, including details about when the game is going to be released. So far, we have yet to see any true in-game footage, but a very impressive in-engine trailer was released alongside the information that DICE has shared.

    First thing's first, the release date for Star Wars Battlefront has been set for an unspecified day in November. The new Battlefront game will be available for PS4, Xbox One and PC when it releases.

    DICE also revealed that Battlefront will run at 60 frames per second and all local game modes will support split screen play. Unfortunately there will be no split screen support for online modes. The local mode that will support split screen play is called Missions and this is a game mode that puts human players against a team of bots. Similarly to Titanfall, Star Wars Battlefront will not have any singleplayer campaign so the Missions mode will be the only option players will have for playing offline.

    Whilst DICE didn't say exactly how many maps will be available, they did state that Star Wars Battlefront will have more than 8 maps at launch, which suggests that more may come in the future as DLC. There will be four planets at launch and there will be at least two different maps per planet.

    Hopefully we'll learn more about Star Wars Battlefront at E3 later this year.

  • Possible Mass Effect 4 Details Shared Online

    mass effect 4 onlineAccording to a Reddit user, a bunch of information about Mass Effect 4 has been shared to select members of the public as part of an online survey. We can't confirm the legitimacy of the information the Reddit user or the survey provided, but there's definitely a lot of information to delve into.

    Here is a portion of the information that the survey shared.

    Premise: Set in the Helius Cluster of the Andromeda Galaxy, removed by time and space from the Mass Effect "Commander Shepard" trilogy and its ending. Play as a "Pathfinder" explorer leading expedition with the aim of establishing new home for humanity. Encounter "savage untamed lands", "cut-throat outlaws", and "warring alien races" in an effort to survive and colonies. Andromeda is home to a mysterious alien race, the Remnants, who've left their vaults and ancient technology throughout.

    Game Objective: Explore 100s of solar systems (over 4x size of Mass Effect 3) collecting resources, developing your ship, crew, and arsenal, while engaging in diplomacy in order to set up colonies, while discovering the mystery behind the Remnants and racing to secure their technology.

    New Species: Remnants, an ancient race who've left ruins and technology throughout the galaxy. And Khet, seemingly antagonistic.

    Squadmates: Same as previous games: make friends, take two with you on missions. Cora is able to generate biotic shields you can fire out of. Drack is a Krogan.

    Loyalty Missions: Same as previous games: complete to unlock increased loyalty and new skill tree for that character. Example: Krogan colony ship has been stolen by outlaws. Track down the ship and return it to increase loyalty with Drack. Dialogue trees and end game impacted by loyalty status.

    Dialogue: "Meaningful choices". Deeper control over responses, such as interrupting conversation. Action based choices are physical choices to shape the course of conversation, such as pulling out a weapon and forcing them to open a door instead of attempting to do so purely via conversation.

    If you would like to read up on all of the information for yourself, you can check out the survey information that the Reddit user posted. Here is a link. I'd love for this information to be true, it all sounds pretty interesting, but we can only wait and see. It's also important to take into consideration that the development of Mass Effect 4 is still in it's early stages - if any of this information is true, it may change before the game is released.

  • Goat Simulator is Now On Xbox One

    goat simulator xbox oneHave you got some change to spare? If you do, you might want to throw it at Coffee Stain Studio's genius creation/abomination Goat Simulator. The hilarious bug filled game has now made it's way to the Xbox One and Xbox 360.

    Whilst Coffee Stain Studios weren't in charge of the port, more than capable Double Eleven has managed to bring it to the Xbox platform without changing anything that broke away from that special Goat Simulation experience the PC version offered.

    As you can imagine, Goat Simulator can only be picked up from the Xbox Store as a digital download. The game currently costs $9.99 for Xbox One and the Xbox 360. The objective of Goat Simulator is to take control of a goat and use his strangely sticky tongue to attach to objects and destroy the world around him.

    The game is perhaps the most random non-game like monstrosity you'll ever lay your eyes on, and plenty of physics bugs have been left in the game to make it even more of a laugh to play through.

    If you aren't so sure you'll be interested in Goat Simulator don't worry about picking it up just yet, the game has already seen plenty of sales on other platforms so I wouldn't be surprised if Double Eleven's port will be featured in some kind of sale in the future. Goat Simulator is better considered as a fun arcade that can be picked up for a fun afternoon indoors.

  • No Solo Campaign in Battlefront

    solo campaign battlefrontThere is a very large pool of gamers that are getting hyped up for the launch of Star Wars: Battlefront. Whilst EA and DICE have managed to impress most audiences so far, there is one area of Battlefront that will be completely missing and this may disappoint some gamers who prefer a more solo experience.

    Even though there will be some local co-op options for players and you will be able to connect to some content in Star Wars: Battlefront whilst offline, there will be no solo campaign in the game. Unlike previous Star Wars Battlefront titles, this means that players will be limited to playing the multiplayer mode or playing the Missions mode against AI opponents.

    The Missions mode gives players the opportunity to team up locally on one single console, but we're assuming that you'll also be able to play Missions on your own. The name Missions makes the mode sound a lot more interesting, but it's basically just a player Vs AI equivalent of the online multiplayer modes.

    The Missions mode can be completed online as well, and they are simply described as a series of objectives players can complete across different locations. This approach is very similar to the route Respawn Entertainment took with Titanfall.

    The lack of solo campaign isn't inherently a bad thing, but I really hope that the multiplayer is captivating to keep us coming back again and again. We'll have to wait till E3 for our next taste of Battlefront. Hopefully we'll see some gameplay at E3 considering Battlefront is now set to release this November.

  • Release Date for Ultra Street Fighter IV Revealed

    ultra street fighter iv ps4You may want to go and check out the PlayStation blog because a new post has been released on there that reveals details about the release date of Ultra Street Fighter IV. We've already seen an Japan arcade release of Tekken 7 and Mortal Kombat X is now available worldwide, so Street Fighter fans are understandably getting hyped up for Ultra Street Fighter IV.

    According to the PlayStation blog, Ultra Street Fighter IV will be available in America and Europe on May 26 this year. The game will be available on PlayStation 4 for $24.99 and it will include all of the DLC that has been released in the past.

    If you have ever played Street Fighter IV on the PlayStation 3 and noticed that there was a slight input lag, you'll be happy to know that the PS4 release of Ultra Street Fighter IV will be free from the input lag problems seen in previous versions.

    Whilst we're not entirely sure how far the developer has gone to improve Ultra Street Fighter IV we do know that the resolution and frame rate has been improved. From what we can tell from the latest screenshots of the game, the character models and textures do seem to be a lot higher quality this time round.

    Will you be picking up the new PlayStation 4 version of Ultra Street Fighter IV when it lands in a month's time on May 26?

  • The Order: 1886 Patch Adds Photo Mode

    the order 1886 photo modeIn the latest patch for The Order: 1886 a brand new photo mode has been added to the game that will allow players to take screenshots of their game and send it to their friends.

    In the latest PlayStation blog it read, "Fans expressed an overwhelming desire to see and share the realism, beauty and detail of our Neo-Victorian world. With Photo Mode, you'll be able to compose, capture, and share stunning images of your favorite moments, characters, and environments."

    On top of being able to take great shots of your gameplay by heading into the photo mode at any time, there are a number of settings within photo mode that apply to your own game experience too. You can adjust some of the color gradients and other graphical settings to change the appearance of your game in real time. For example, if you want to play with a sepia tone, or want to see what playing The Order: 1886 in black and white feels like, you can set these things up in the photo mode.

    "Since The Order: 1886 is completely rendered in real-time with no pre-rendered frames, you're able to play in a customized look from beginning to end. If at any time you want to change Color Grading styles during gameplay, simply enter Photo Mode and make your adjustment. You can also reset the option if you wish to play the game as it was originally intended."

  • Patch 2.2.0 Hits Diablo 3

    diablo 3 patch 2.2.0A brand new patch has been applied to all versions of Diablo 3 across all platforms. Patch 2.2.0 adds a range of different changes to the game, including tweaks to the Quality of Life, new item additions and general updates.

    The most noticeable update will be the three new sets which have been added to the game. These three sets include Wrath of the Wastes for Barbarian, Unhallowed Essence for Demon Hunter, and Delsere's Magnum Opus for Wizard.

    On top of the new sets over 10 of the pre-existing sets have been tweaked, and one class specific set from each class has also been worked on. Blizzard did not go into too much detail about which sets have been changed but they did mention that over 20 new legendary items were added on top of the set changes.

    30 more legendary items previously found in the game have also been adjusted. Looting crafting materials and gems is now easier, regular potions now do not run out and cannot be dropped from monsters.

    Finally, three new treasure goblins have been added to the game, but they can only be found in Adventure mode. Many monsters and Rift Guardians have been edited and several Rift maps have been added in the latest 2.2.0 patch for Diablo 3.

    The latest changes are already live and they will be applied to your game the next time you head into Diablo 3. Whilst the changes to the PC version are similar, the above patch details are in reference to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One version of Diablo 3.
