    telltale games ps4 xbox oneIt has now been revealed that Telltale Games are gearing up to release both The Wolf Among Us and The Walking Dead Season 2 for the Xbox One and PS4 this year.

    Both of the episodic series' from Telltale Games will be put up for sale on the digital store, available for players to purchase separately on both the PS4 PlayStation Network and the Xbox One Games Store.

    Whilst the digital versions offer players the flexibility to buy each episode separately, there will also be a physical retail version of each game released around the same time that will include a compilation of all episodes within each game.

    To top this off, a game of the year edition of The Walking Dead Season one will also be released for the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 shortly, and it will include the entirety of Season 1, along with the 400 Days DLC episode.

    Whilst a definitive release date has not yet been revealed, Telltale Games have mentioned that the digital downloads and the retail compilations will be released at some point this November, however it's possible that the PS4 and Xbox One Season 1 GOTY version may not be released till later in the year.

    Whilst the digital versions will be put onto the PS4 and Xbox One, the retail compilations will also be put up for sale for the PS Vita, the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. We'll let you know more as soon as we know a definite release date.

  • Titanfall Receiving Last DLC Pack this Fall

    titanfall third dlc packRespawn Entertainment, the developers behind Titanfall, have just announced details for their third and final DLC pack for their recently released FPS. The new DLC pack will include three new maps that explore unseen places of the Titanfall universe.

    The next DLC pack for Titanfall has been called IMC Rising, so it's likely that the maps will focus on IMC created facilities and locations, as opposed to the previous map packs, Frontier's Edge and Expedition, which focused on scenic areas and Militia mining areas.

    On Frontier's Edge, players were given Dig Site, one of the smallest maps in the game, Export, an interesting map that comes with a "black market" feature that allows players to buy and sell burn cards with in-game currency, and finally Haven, an open map perfect for objective based games.

    Expedition came with Swampland, a map focusing on an alien world's scenery, War Games, a map that took another look at Titanfall's pilot training simulator, and Runoff, a water based level.

    Abbie Heppe, community manager for Respawn Entertainment and Titanfall, revealed at EA's recent press conference that the new IMC Rising DLC pack will "only just begin to explore this universe," in reference to the huge universe that Respawn has created for Titanfall.

    Hopefully we'll hear more about the included maps in IMC Rising in the near future as the map pack is expected to release before the end of this year.

    With this release of the final DLC it's probably time to pick up a Evil Controller. Check out the Master Mod and all the great features it can add to your game style.

  • Batman: Arkham Knight Gets June 2015 Release Date

    arkham knight release dateThe next game in the Batman Arkham series has finally been given the release date treatment by Rocksteady games and we can now confidently say that Batman: Arkham Knight will be releasing next year on June 2015 for current gen consoles.

    Whilst the main version of Batman Arkham Knight can be pre-ordered for $59.99 from various retailers, gamers who are big fans of the series may want to take a look at ordering either of the two limited edition versions of the game instead.

    The standard limited edition will cost $99.99 and will come with an 80 page artbook, issue zero of the Batman: Arkham Knight comic book, three in-game New 52 character skins, a detailed Batman statue and a Steelbook case.

    The limited edition sounds pretty impressive as it is, but this is just the start. For huge fans out there, there is the Batmobile edition. The Batmobile edition will come with all of the above, however the Batman statue will be replaced with a transforming Batmobile statue created by Triforce.

    As mentioned before, Batman Arkham Knight will be released for Xbox One, PS4 and PC in June 2015 next year.

    Batman Arkham Knight was originally planned to release in the 2014 launch window for both the Xbox One and the PS4, but it had since been delayed so that Rocksteady Studios could fully polish the game before releasing it. Guy Perkins, marketing manager for Rocksteady stated that "We feel that we have an absolutely awesome game in the works, and we want to make it as great as it possibly can be," so I personally think the delay is justified here.

  • Loyalty Rewards and Car Details for Forza Horizon 2 Revealed

    forza horizon 2 car listThe Forza franchise has now been out for so long that Turn 10 have managed to amass a rather large collection of cars that they have been able to move into each game quite easily. This year, Forza Horizon 2 is set for launch, and Turn 10 have just revealed details on the amount of cars we can expect from the game, as well as any rewards players can receive from the monthly loyalty program.

    Whilst Turn 10's previous game, Forza Motorsport 5, was filled with microtransactions that allow players to purchase new cars, Forza Horizon 2 has much less of that, and instead has a much larger free collection of cars. In total, players will be given access to a huge range of 210 free vehicles in Forza Horizon 2, and it's expected that future DLC will add even more cars to the game.

    On top of this, Turn 10 revealed the Forza loyalty program that will reward loyal players with monthly awards. Don't worry, you won't have to spend any money to be a part of the Forza loyalty program. Instead, you'll just need to spend a certain amount of time within Forza games each month.

    Players will also be able to complete objectives in Forza Horizon 2 to receive rewards, and in total, five new cars can be rewarded from the loyalty program each month for completing objectives. Forza Horizon 2 will release on the 30th of this month for Xbox One and Xbox 360.

  • Dying Light Release Pushed Forward to January 2015

    dying light release dateWhilst Dying Light was originally planned for release in March, and then delayed to February next year, it has now been pushed forward to a January release, revealed developer Techland.

    The release date for North America has been set for January 27th for all platforms, whilst Europe has received a release date of January 28th for all platforms.

    Dying Light is a new open world first person survival game that mixes elements from games like Dead Island and Left 4 Dead with parkour elements similar to those from Mirror’s Edge. The result is a free-flowing zombie game that focuses on allowing players to use the scenery and environment to their advantage.

    Like Techland's previous IP, Dead Island, Dying Light takes a large focus on melee based combat, and a lot of the weapons that players will come across in the game will be melee based weapons such as knives, clubs or wrenches - pretty much what we've come to expect from any zombie game.

    I personally think the parkour element of Dying Light is enough to make it original, and it should offer players a unique experience within the rather watered down zombie survival genre. However, Techland will have to deliver the game perfectly, otherwise the parkour element may just be left as an overused gimmick that doesn't offer enough to make the parkour actually mechanically viable whilst playing.

    Dying Light will be available for PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC upon it's release on January 27th 2015 in North America and January 28th 2015 in Europe.

  • Destiny Public Events Revealed by Bungie

    destiny public eventsTo keep things interesting for returning players, Bungie has revealed the first of many upcoming in-game events for Destiny, which should challenge players and reward them with special bonuses after completing.

    Last weekend, Bungie released their first in-game dynamic event that focused on PVP - the event added a brand new "Salvage" mode to the game that pitted two teams of three players against each other as they fought for control of different nodes within the map. The nodes must be controlled for a short time before a point is rewarded for each node, and only one node appeared on the map at one time.

    Salvage has since been removed from Destiny, and the next in-game event will be a level 26 raid set on Venus. Vault of Glass will be available from September 16th, and it will put Guardians up against new challenges. Once completed, players have a chance to receive raid set gear and ascendent materials from the new raid.

    There will be another PVP event and another PVE event this month, and a fifth event some in October. So far, details for the last three announced events have not been revealed by Bungie, but it's likely that all will be revealed fairly soon.

    Whilst only five events have been listed, we expect Bungie may have many other similar events lined up for the future of the game, on top of any upcoming DLC packs they plan to release.

  • GTA V for PS4 and Xbox One Dated

    gta v ps4 release dateIt's finally happened, Rockstar have released all there is to know about the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Grand Theft Auto V, including the release date of the next gen version of the game.

    Retailers around the world have now started to put up pre-orders for GTA V next gen for both the PS4 and the Xbox One, in anticipation for the release date, which has been set for November 18th this year.

    GTA V for Xbox One and PS4 will come with a wide range of changes that couldn't make it into the original game due to hardware limitations of the previous generation of consoles. Some of the new changes include new weapons, new vehicles and new activities, as well as increased wildlife and a new and improved foliage and terrain system.

    There will also be denser traffic in GTA V for PS4 and Xbox One, making car chases in the city even more intense, and players will notice changes to the weather and vehicle damage systems in-game.

    There will also be an extra 100 songs added to the GTA radio, and the online player count is reportedly being increased to 30 players per server. All of the previously created content and GTA Online gameplay patches for GTA V will be ported over to the new versions of the game, and players will be rewarded with $500,000 spending cash for both the story mode and online mode.

    Whilst the PS4 and Xbox One versions are set for release on November 18th, the PC version of GTA V is set for a release in January 2015.

  • Microsoft Plans to Buy Mojang

    microsoft mojangIt seems that nobody can escape acquisition these days - if you're a successful business, and you manage to get the spotlight on you, chances are somebody like Google, Microsoft or Amazon will swoop down and offer a pricey deal to purchase your entire business.

    Recently, Twitch was acquired by Amazon for $970 million, and now there are rumors circulating that Microsoft is looking to acquire Mojang, the creators of the ever-popular Minecraft.

    Whilst nothing is definitely confirmed at this point, it is looking likely that Microsoft are looking into paying whatever they can to get hold of Minecraft, including a cash payment upwards of $2.5 billion.

    The deciding factor will come down to whether the current Minecraft owners will be willing to give up their rights to the game for a huge cash sum. Markus "Notch" Persson, the original creator of Minecraft has already stated in the past that he has made enough money from Minecraft, but due to changes in Mojang, it may not be down to Notch to sell the company.

    If Microsoft do purchase Mojang, it could mean we'll see more Minecraft branded toys, TV content or other entertainment mediums that can help Microsoft boost the revenue from the game. It's also possible that Microsoft may bring Minecraft to Windows Phone - as it stands now, Mojang have not developed a Pocket Edition version of Minecraft for Windows Phone due to the "tiny" market share Windows Phone currently holds.

  • Dead or Alive 5: Last Round Confirmed for PS4 and Xbox One

    dead or alive 5 last round - CopyIt looks like everybody is jumping on the 'port-your-games-to-the-new-gen' band wagon, including Team Ninja, who have confirmed that they plan to bring Dead or Alive 5: Last Round to the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One, despite it being a game that released two years ago.

    Dead Or Alive 5: Last Round will come with a range of improvements, including graphical changes, and most likely a frame rate and resolution increase for the PS4 and the Xbox One.

    Dead Or Alive 5: Last Round will release for the PS3 and Xbox 360 too, however only a digital version will be available for last gen consoles, whilst both a physical and a digital version will be available for the Xbox One and PS4.

    Whilst there is no concrete release date for Dead Or Alive 5: Last Round, Team Ninja have mentioned that it will make it's way to the world in Spring 2015 for all four Sony and Microsoft consoles currently in the spotlight.

    DOA 5: Last Round will include characters that didn't make it into the original release, including Ryu Hayabusa, perhaps one of the most popular characters in the entire franchise. In summary, the full character lineup for Last Round will include Ayane, Bass, Bayman, Brad Wong, Kokoro Hayabusa, Hayate, Kasumi, Rig, Momiji, Leon, Lisa, Tina, Jann Lee, Hitomi, Leifang, Christie, Eliot, Leon, Gen Fu, Zack, Helena, Marie Rose, Phase 4, Nyotengu as well as Sarah Bryant, Akira, Pai and Jacky from the Virtua Fighter series.

  • New Xperia Z3 Will Have DriveClub Remote Play Features

    xperia z3 driveclub remote play - CopyAt IFA this year, Sony revealed their brand new Xperia Z3, a newly upgraded Android smartphone with new hardware and software features. One of the most interesting additions to the Xperia Z3, and especially for us here at Evil Controllers, was the inclusion of remote play for the Xperia Z3.

    Remote play is already a feature that has been made available on the PS Vita, but since the Xperia Play which released a few years ago, we've not seen any PlayStation-Xperia crossovers since.

    The remote play feature will allow players to play PlayStation 4 games from their Xperia Z3, and through Bluetooth pairing, they will also be able to connect up their DualShock 4 controller to their Xperia smartphone too.

    Whilst remote play will allow players to play any game on their Xperia Z3, a new trailer focuses on DriveClub, and the remote play can be seen in action within the trailer. The new remote play features will also be made available for the Xperia Z3 tablet, and the Xperia Z3 Compact.

    Sony have not yet given any details on whether previously release Android smartphones and tablets will release the same remote play treatment, but it would make sense that Sony reserve it for their newest devices to help bring sales to their new Android lineup.

    This is definitely a good move by Sony in my opinion, and it will open up more possibilities for the average player within the PlayStation 4 gaming ecosystem.
