  • Only God of War 3 Will Get PS4 Remaster

    god of war 3 remaster 3

    Earlier in the month, Sony announced that they will be releasing a remastered version of God of War 3 for the PlayStation 4.

    The remastered version will have a 1080p resolution and will play on the PlayStation 4 at 60 frames per second. The game has been mentioned to cost $40, and it will release on July 14.

    Because of the sudden announcement, many players have wondered with Sony will plan to release other God of War games on the PlayStation 4. Thankfully, Sony Santa Monica have responded, giving us details on their future plans for the franchise.

    Sony Santa Monica's Aaron Kaufman explained a little about God of War remasters in a new blog post on the PlayStation blog. "Remasters often help us open the door to new players who perhaps did not play God of War 3 5 years ago, but who we can bring it to on the PlayStation 4."

    "People often forget, the more players we can bring into a franchise, the better for everyone. At Santa Monica Studio, we'd like as many PlayStation fans to experience our games as possible, from generation to generation."

    Despite their positivity towards remastered games, Kaufman ended with, "No plans for others in the franchise to bring over."

    Even if we don't see any more remastered versions of the God of War games on the PlayStation 4, it'd still be great to see God of War 3. Sony Santa Monica are also working on another game which we know nothing about, other than the fact that it will apparently be "freaking huge."

  • Details Revealed for Wolfenstein The Old Blood

    wolfenstein the old bloodThis week Bethesda has straight up announced a brand new prequel to Wolfenstein the New Order. The prequel will be a standalone game, as opposed to DLC content, and it has been named Wolfenstein: The Old Blood.

    As with The New Order, The Old Blood will put players in the shoes of B.J. Blazkowics as he fights his way through the game's Nazi antagonists. In the first mission, players will find themselves in Castle Wolfenstein, and they will be instructed to kill a maniacal prison warden.

    The second mission will then take place in Wilfburg, where B.J. Blazkowics will come face to face with "obsessed Nazi archaeologist" who is exhuming mysterious artifacts that threaten to unleash a dark and ancient power.

    The standalone prequel will only include the two missions listed above, so it's definitely a very short experience, so it's odd that Bethesda did not decide to offer it as part of an expansion to The New Order.

    Wolfenstein The Old Blood is set to release on May 5, 2015 as a digital download for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The game will cost $20. PlayStation 4 and PC retail copies of the game will be releasing one week after the digital launch, but there seems to be no plans to launch a retail copy for Xbox One. Do you think it's fair for Bethesda to offer a standalone expansion like this at a large portion of the cost of a full game?

  • More News About Mass Effect 4; Release 2016

    mass effect 4 release 2016Thanks to Chris Wynn, senior development director at Bioware for Mass Effect, we now have a collection of new details about the development of the latest Mass Effect title.

    Perhaps the most interesting tweet from Chris Wynn is the one that mentions their progress on combat and biotics. In Wynn's tweet, it read "Combat is looking pretty great in the latest builds. Biotics plus weapons plus powerful hardware is amazing."

    In other news, Shinobi602, a well known industry insider and leakster talked a little bit about the potential release date of the new Mass Effect game.

    "From people I've talked to close to the thing, it's still a 2016 release but haven't yet nailed down deciding between Spring or Fall. EA usually has multiple high-profile releases every year, and with Battlefield 5 targeting Q4 2016, for now until I hear more, I'm assuming earlier than Fall is the target. They did however release NFS Rivals and BF4 at the same time, so it could still be the Fall. Of course, delays are always possible with any game, but this thing's been in development since 2012. It won't skip next year."

    Of course, this information can't be taken as gospel, but Shinobi602 is usually very good at getting details right, and it would make sense that Mass Effect would be released in 2016.

    If this is the case, does that mean we might see something about the new Mass Effect at E3? It is completely possible, but all we can do for now is wait and see.

  • New Details on The Witcher 3 Revealed

    details on the witcher 3Thanks to a preview feature from a German magazine and a bunch of translators over at the NeoGaf forums, we now have a bunch more details about the Wither 3 in anticipation for it's launch.

    There is so much information to go through, so we'll list some of the biggest reveals from the magazine. Firstly, the feature suggests that there will be two large cities, Novigrad and Oxenfurt, both of which will be bustling with life.

    No Man's Land will feature 25 smaller towns and cities, and some of these will be around the same size of Flotsam from The Witcher 2.

    Interestingly, the best items in The Witcher 3 must be crafted, and all equipped items will appear on Geralt in-game. Thankfully, they have gotten rid of the fist fighting quick time events, and it's been replaced with a fighting style similar to standard weapon fighting.

    One quirky feature is that Geralt's beard will grow over time, and you can go to a barber to cut it's length. The HUD in The Witcher 3 will also have a lot of customization potential, and you can remove certain UI elements, and even activate audio hints.

    The German magazine came across very few bugs, crashes or freezes, which is exactly what we want to hear.

    The Witcher 3 will be released on May 19 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. The game has been delayed a number of times now, so it's great to finally see the release date nearing closer.

  • Halo 5 Hunt The Truth Episode Released

    halo 5 hunt the truthOver last week, a teaser website popped up, teasing something in relation to Halo 5: Guardians. At the time, no details were given about what the website was for. The website simply provided a countdown, and presented the phrase "Hunt the Truth." Since then, the countdown has reached zero, and we now have access to what seems to be the first in a series of podcasts related to the story of the Halo universe.

    Instead of getting a team of developers to delve into the story of Halo, the podcast plays a transcript from a fictional war journalist, named Ben Giraud. In the first episode, Giraud goes a little bit into how the Master Chief has saved humanity, and how he is a living legend.

    Throughout the first episodic podcast, Giraud goes on to explain his quest to write the ultimate biography of the Master Chief, however along the way, he started to find a series of concerning details about the Chief.

    Because of these new details, Giraud has now set out to learn the truth of Spartan 117, and it looks as if these new podcasts will take us with him on his journey.

    Straight off the bat, this podcast screams excitement, and I, as a big Halo fan, am very interested about how this episodic podcast could unravel. So far, we know very little about the story of Halo 5: Guardians, but it looks like it could delve a lot deeper into the lore of the Halo universe than we first thought.

    Halo 5: Guardians will be released later this year during the Holiday season.

  • Tekken 7 Has Launched in Tokyo

    tekken 7 launchedAs expected, Tekken 7 has now launched in Japan, and from what we have seen so far it is looking like a pretty impressive game. Tekken 7 was already available in a select few arcade machines across Tokyo, but the game has now fully launched to console, and those in Japan can head in store to pick up a copy of the game.

    Tekken 7 has released with 20 different characters, although more are planned as extra content later on in the game's life. Five of these characters are brand new to the game, one of which is the end boss for the story mode.

    On top of the new characters, two new mechanics have been introduced to Tekken 7. The first is called Rage Art, and this gives players the ability to perform a series of unblockable moves that do a portion of the standard damage of the attacks they perform.

    The next new mechanic is called Power Crush, and it will allow players to continue attacking, even whilst being attacked by the enemy. This ability does have it's limitations though, and it can only stop damage from high and mid attacks.

    Both of these features seem aimed towards the more casual play style, giving players a chance at fighting back against their friends whilst in a fight that seems almost unwinnable. It will be interesting to see how these new mechanics affect high competitive play.

    So far, we're unsure when the game will release globally, but it shouldn't be too long before we see a worldwide release.

  • Quitalities Announced for Mortal Kombat X

    mortal kombat x quitalitiesEver been frustrated by a player quitting on you in an online match on Tekken, Mortal Kombat or Street Fighter? I know I have, and it seems quite common for players to disconnect just before you pull in a victory.

    Fortunately, NetherRealm have implemented a new finishing move to Mortal Kombat X that should put disconnectors and rage quitters to shame. In Mortal Kombat X, any plays that purposely disconnect from a game will have their heads implode (in-game of course.) and the opposing player's character will stand there, with a slight smirk on his face.

    The whole procedure has been called a Quitality, and it will happen every time a player quits in the middle of a fight. The win will go straight to the player who remained in the game, whilst the disconnected player will be given a loss.

    Whilst it's not clear, I'm expecting that the Quitality will happen even if a player's internet goes down, or they get disconnected for a reason out of their control. There's no details on whether it will affect players ranking in a different way to a standard loss, but if players want to get seriously competitive in Mortal Kombat X, a Quitality is the last thing a player will want to receive.

    Mortal Kombat X will be releasing on April 14 for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC. A later mobile release for iOS and Android will also follow.

  • Gears of War Collection Rumors hit the Internet

    gears of war collectionEver since the launch of the Xbox One, there have been constant rumors about the possibility of a Gears of War return, but we have heard any credible information about any new Gears of War content just yet.

    Recently, cover based shooter, The Order: 1866 released exclusively to the PlayStation 4, and this just sparked the internet with even more Gears of War rumors. It's very likely that something Gears of War related is going to come to the Xbox One, but so far we have no idea what it could be.

    Recently, two images have hit the internet that suggest that we may even see a Gears of War collection for the Xbox One. Expected to include Gears of War 1, 2 and 3, (and maybe Judgement if anybody is really that interested.) the collection has been suggested to release next year by renowned Xbox leakster Shinobi602.

    It doesn't stop there though - a message sent to Phil Spencer makes it seem as if the Collection could definitely be happening. The message asked if we were ever going to see a Gears of War collection, to which Phil Spencer responded "Haha, I can't announce that. But stay tuned." Hopefully we'll hear something about what Phil Spencer means by this comment soon.

    Would you be happy to see a Gears of War collection for the Xbox One that contained all of the previous games in the franchise, or would you rather see a completely new game in the franchise?

  • Bloodborne has Now Gone Gold

    bloodborne goldAt long last, From Software's new PlayStation 4 exclusive Bloodborne has gone gold, which means the development team have done everything they need to do to ship the product to disc in preparation for the launch of the game.

    I'm personally quite excited to see Bloodborne - from what we've seen so far, the game looks like a great example of what From Software are known best for. Their Dark Souls and Demon Souls games have always been great, but Bloodborne takes a slightly different path by offering a more forgiving gameplay experience for players.

    When I say more forgiving, I do mean that you're not going to die as often, but that doesn't mean we can't expect Bloodborne to be a nice challenge. In fact, I think it will be a very challenging game, but I'm hoping the frustration that was found by many players whilst playing Dark Souls 1 and 2 won't be present in Bloodborne.

    Whilst Bloodborne has already seen a delay, going gold means we will now not see any more delays, and the previously announced release dates of March 24 and March 27 are now set in stone.

    The March 24 release is for North America, whilst the March 27 release is for the UK. Other region release dates are around these two dates. The full release schedule can be seen below.

    NA - March 24, 2015
    EU - March 25, 2015
    Japan - March 26, 2015
    UK - March 27, 2015

  • Bungie Details their Plans for New Destiny Update

    destiny updateBungie have revealed details to release a new patch that will add new content and create a stepping stone between now and the House of Wolves DLC planned for later this year. All details for the update have not yet been given, but Bungie have revealed a number of features we can expect to see when the update is released.

    The new update details, as seen on Bungie's blog, can be seen below. We can expect to see these changes in the new update.

    Vault Space - We know you need more space to collect all the treasures you gain from your missions, and more gear is on the way.
    Raid Fixes - There are times when Atheon and Crota can be uncooperative, so we're tackling their worst bugs.
    Audio and Visual - Not everyone wants to see or hear a game the same way, which is why we’re looking at providing more options.
    PVP Ammunition - The Crucible team wants to change the way ammo crates dictate the flow of a battle.
    Strikes - The numbers tell us that there are some missions that are successfully completed far less than others, inspiring us to look at why people quit.

    Community manager David Dague also talked about how Bungie go about working on Destiny and improving the experience for the playerbase. "Ever since Destiny went live, there have been various teams at Bungie," Dague mentioned.

    "We're all working on Destiny, but different teams have goals for different projects.

    "We've specialized to meet the needs of this sprawling community. Each class of developer has a specific focus. Some of them are creating new adventures for your Guardian - those both revealed and still secret."

    The exact release for the new update has not yet been planned, but we'll probably hear more about it in the near future.
