  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Minecraft for PS4 Has Gone Live

    minecraft ps4 - CopyAt long last, the PlayStation 4 port for Minecraft has finally been put up for sale after months of development, planning and delayed releases. 4JStudios, the development team responsible for the port, have been working on the PS4 and Xbox One ports before the consoles were even available to the public. However, Minecraft can now be picked up from the PSN store for $19.99.

    If PS3 owners already have a copy of Minecraft on their PlayStation 3, they can 'upgrade' to the new PS4 version of Minecraft for just $4.99. Unfortunately, the promotion is not available for those that have purchased the physical copy of Minecraft for the PlayStation 3 in the past, however going forward all PS3 physical copies of Minecraft will now have pre-packaged codes that will players a $14.99 discount on the PS4 version of the game.

    Minecraft has been planned for the Xbox One as well, however due to a few issues the release has been slightly delayed. The Xbox One version of Minecraft will be released this Friday, and the same $19.99 full price and $4.99 upgrade price will be available on the Xbox One too.

    For those unaware, the new generation ports for Minecraft have a bunch of new features not supported in either the PS3 or Xbox 360 version, including worlds that are 36 times larger than the last-gen versions, better render distance and improved graphics.

    If you're an avid Minecraft fan and enjoy playing the game on your console, the $4.99 upgrade price should be something you may want to consider, as the extra world space will definitely come in handy.

  • Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain Map Shown to be Huge

    metal gear solid v map sizeLast month, Hideo Kojima posted up a range of different screenshots portraying one of the maps planned to be in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, and weeks later, we've been able to work out just how large the world will be, thanks to some analysis carried about by a Reddit user.

    The original map was darkened, but with a few tweaks to the white balance, the map could then be revealed more clearly. On the edited map, roads can be seen connecting the entire world together. Whilst the map does show the scale of the world, it doesn't explain how large it will really feel to the player, but to put it into perspective, Reddit users have taken areas from gameplay trailers and events and correlated them with places on the map to piece together the size of the world.

    If the image, which can be seen above is proven to be correct, then there's no guessing just how huge The Phantom Pain will feel. One thing's for sure and that's the world in Metal Gear Solid will be absolutely huge, and it will certainly rival many other large open worlds created for other games like Grand Theft Auto V or Just Cause 2.

    To make things even more exciting, Kojima has mentioned in the past that there would be multiple maps in Metal Gear Solid V, and the one being shown today is just one of them.

  • Beyond Two Souls Might Be Coming to the PS4

    beyond two souls ps4According to new rumors, Beyond Two Souls may be coming to the PlayStation 4 some time in the near future. Packaged as a 'director's cut,' the new alleged PlayStation 4 compatible Beyond Two Souls will come with a range of previously removed scenes, and an overhaul on some scenes already within the game.

    This isn't the first time we've heard rumors circulate about a PlayStation 4 Beyond Two Souls port, and it's certainly not going to be the last, but until we hear something substantial from an official source there's no way of knowing how likely it is that Beyond Two Souls will actually make it to the PS4.

    The source for the new rumors leads to two German retail websites, both of which have listed up the 'Beyond Two Souls director's cut' for release on the PlayStation 4. Earlier in the year, a programmer working on the game listed a PlayStation 4 remake within his portfolio, so there is definitely something related to a new Beyond Two Souls release happening in the background.

    Considering that Beyond Two Souls sold over 1 million copies as an exclusive, and was released around the same time the PlayStation 4 was announced, it is completely likely that a new director's cut version for the PS4 is being worked on, but don't hold your breath just yet.

    Hopefully we will hear an official statement from Quantic Dream at some point in the near future - until then, we'll have to take these rumors with a grain of salt.

  • Third Person Option Coming to Advanced Warfare After Release

    advanced warfare third personThis won't be the first time, but recent news reveals that the upcoming Call of Duty game, Advanced Warfare, will have a selection of third person modes for the multiplayer portion of the game which will release some time after the game officially launches worldwide.

    Sledgehammer Games have put quite a lot of effort into renewing the multiplayer experience of the Call of Duty franchise in Advanced Warfare, and what we've learned so far is that Sledgehammer will offer a range of new mechanics to make the game feel fresh, but the experience will still be recognized by Call of Duty fans across the globe.

    On top of putting effort into new gameplay mechanics, Sledgehammer are thinking hard about the various multiplayer playlists available. It's already been revealed that the game will have a set of standard playlists, and a set of traditional non-exo suit playlists too. On top of this, it's now looking likely that Advanced Warfare will also get a third person playlist at some point after the game's release.

    This news is quite exciting; I've always been a fan of the third person modes for previous Call of Duty games, and it gives players a new take on the online gameplay. The only trouble is that as the game ages, it may be hard to find players within each sub-playlist. There is already the standard playlist and the traditional playlists, and if they add third person playlists there will be three separate areas that fragment the online player capacity.

  • Metal Gear Solid Phantom Pain Multiplayer Content Shown

    phantom pain multiplayer contentWhilst all of the video footage we've seen so far has shown off the extensive singleplayer experience for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, a new gameplay video that has just been released has a large portion showing off the multiplayer content within the game.

    This is the first time the Metal Gear Solid V multiplayer portion of the game has been put online, so Kojima has been pretty excited to show fans what the new MGS game will offer players.

    Metal Gear Solid IV managed to keep things refreshing by adding a enjoyable multiplayer game mode to the franchise for the first time, and this time round it looks like Kojima wants the multiplayer experience to be even more feature-filled.

    In Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, players will be able to customize and equip their "mother base" with a range of different traps, rooms and military equipment. Once a mother base has been created, other players will have the ability to infiltrate the mother base.

    We've heard about the mother base content before, but to make things even more interesting, just before the video ends, two players can be seen confronting one another, and at this point it's clear that there will be the chance for some interesting player versus player content within a mother base.

    The release date for the Phantom Pain has not yet been confirmed, but it's likely to be some time between the holiday season this year and Q1 2015.

  • New Watch Dogs Update Adds Friend Hacking Features

    watch dogs new featuresA new update for Watch Dogs has been recently released that adds a few new features and also addresses a large number of bugs and issues present in the previous version of the game. In terms of new features, with the new Watch Dogs update players will finally be able to interact with their friends by hacking their worlds.

    The online hacking and tailing missions were previously limited to random matchmaking, however with the new update players will now be able to make the choice to play against their friends instead. Players will also be able to turn off friend invasions, just in case your friends start to become a pest to play with.

    On top of adding the new online play feature for friends, Ubisoft have put a few efforts in with the latest patch to help cut out bad player behaviour in Watch Dogs by pooling those who frequently disconnect with each other. Typically, from now on, if you frequently display any forms of bad behaviour, you'll have to get a taste of your own medicine and be forced to play with others who do the same.

    In the singleplayer portion of the game, players can now reset gang hideouts and convoy missions in case they feel like replaying a mission for fun.

    Finally, the drinking games in Watch Dogs have been adjusted to be made a little bit easier. Some bug fixes have also been made across the board.
