  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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."

  • Huge Witcher 3 Open World Shown in Gamestop Map

    witcher 3 gamestop mapA huge pre-order bonus has been created for The Witcher 3 and it will be available exclusively at Gamestop. The pre-order bonus is a huge map that shows off the grand scale of the open world in The Witcher 3.

    We already knew that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was going to have a very large map but nobody was quite sure about just how large the world would be. If the new map is anything to go by, the size of The Witcher 3 could make Skyrim look tiny.

    There are so many different sections of the world to explore, along with plenty of different towns and settlements, Witcher 3 is looking to have one of the largest open worlds in the history of gaming.

    It would take at least a few hundred hours to explore everything in The Witcher 3, from the huge open worlds to the plethora of side quests and main missions that follow the game's main storyline.

    If you are interested in receiving a physical copy of the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt world map you will need to pre-order the game from Gamestop. Unfortunately the map is an exclusive deal that Projekt Red has made with the video game retailer.

    The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt officially launches next month on the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. I personally cannot wait to just how huge and open the world is on May 19 when the game releases.

  • Xbox Live downed by Hackers Again

    xbox live hackersThis week Xbox Live went down across the world and players were having trouble with connecting to the online service for a few hours. Whilst Microsoft did not explain what the issue was, a hacker group has already claimed that they were responsible for the shutdown.

    Last year Microsoft dealt with a large hacking problem around Christmas time and it stopped a lot of people from connecting to the Xbox Live servers for a few days. Whilst the latest attack was no way near as severe, it still shows that Microsoft's servers are still vulnerable to attack and this is causing a disruption to the service Microsoft provides to Xbox players.

    The hacker group claiming responsibility for the latest hacker attack is named TeamBudyBear and they have made statements on their Twitter to explain the attack.

    "We're doing these attacks to show everyone how bad big company's care about security. We as teenagers know how to fix their servers. Pathetic."

    Whilst TeamBudyBear are not using their technological expertise for any good, what they're saying does have an air of truth to it. If Microsoft's security was any better, none of these attacks from hackers would be possible. In fact, it's almost a little disappointing to see that despite the huge hacker issue from last year, hackers still find it incredibly easy to bring down Microsoft's servers.

    For the time being all of Microsoft's services are now working as intended and it looks like the attacks from TeamBudyBear have stopped.

  • Black Ops 3 Announced

    black ops 3Out of nowhere Treyarch has just announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 will be coming this year. The developer also released a small teaser trailer showing very little of anything besides the Black Ops logo.

    Fortunately the teaser trailer does give us more information about when we can expect to hear more about Black Ops 3. According to the new trailer, there will be a worldwide reveal on Sunday, April 26.

    So far, we haven’t seen any gameplay of Black Ops 3 and we don’t really know what to expect. The last title in the game was from Sledgehammer Games and this was the first time the development studio created a Call of Duty game without any external help. Some players seem quite excited to look forward to a new Black Ops title, whilst others are wishing Activision chose to go for a different Call of Duty era.

    Considering Treyarch is still going down the futuristic Black Ops arch, it could be possible that the upcoming Black Ops title will come with some of the game content we saw in Advanced Warfare. It would be interesting to see the exo-suit abilities in Black Ops 3, although we can neither confirm nor deny whether this will happen or not.

    Hopefully we will learn all about Black Ops 3 and what to expect from the game on April 26. The April reveal is a little earlier than usual so perhaps we’ll see Black Ops 3 release earlier than scheduled too.

  • New Bloodborne 1.02 Patch Released

    new bloodborne patchA new patch for Bloodborne has been released and it fixes a number of issues and exploits found in the game. One of the biggest changes includes a fix to a well known duplication glitch that was spreading through the internet.

    The item duplication glitch allowed players to practically duplicate any item in their inventory, and many players started to use it to get infinite consumables and increase their in game wealth. Whilst this duplication method has been fixed it would not surprise me if other players manage to find another dupe method before From Software have the chance to fix it.

    Another very important fix in the 1.02 patch changes the way a certain mission plays out, which previously caused some issues, stopping players from progressing through the game. If you ever had trouble with the Lunarium Key in Bloodborne you will be happy to hear that all issues relating to the key have now been fixed.

    If your game was previously unable to make the key spawn, you will now be able to head into game and collect the key to continue with the game. Without the Lunarium Key, players cannot fight the boss within that area, and that will stop the player from being able to complete many other areas in the game following on from the boss fight.

    Whether or not you're frustrated with the item duplication fix, I think it's great to see the developers of Bloodborne working quickly on major game issues and bugs. Bloodborne has been incredibly successful since it's release, and millions of players have already purchased the game.
