  • GTA V Heists DLC Finally Revealed ... Hopefully

    GTA V Heists DLCI can't be sure whether this is a practical joke by Rockstar, or someone at their office decided to start April fools a whole four months early, but according to reports, Rockstar are gearing up to release their patch notes for a new update this month, and the exciting part is that they will contain the long awaited GTA Online heist missions.

    Rockstar did of course mentioned fairly recently that the first update to come after the release of the new console ports would include the new GTA heists, but after waiting so long, it's almost quite hard to believe.

    However, in the new patch notes for an update planned for December 23rd, it looks as if heists will be making their way to GTA Online, alongside other game changes. Unfortunately, this information only comes from a 'tipster' from within the development team, so we can't promise that any of this information is true or not.

    Interestingly, Rockstar has tried to cover up any spread information of the new update leaks, so we won't be posting the full details, however a quick patch summary can be read below.

    Heist (Planning Board) layout update for both High-End apartment interiors. This will be available across all platforms.

    Brand new 'Heist' selection menu featuring it's own Social Club-based leaderboard and misc options showing the list of un-completed Heist missions). This will be available across all platforms.

    34 Texture Modifications to 4 different locations, this is in favour of added effect during Heist missions. This will be available across all platforms but the texture detail is improved on current-generation.

    6 Heist missions in 4 unique locations.

    5 Cops and Crooks missions in 4 unique locations.

    Improved anti-cheat methods. Some code for this is included in the DLC, but is not associated with the Heist feature itself.

    Three brand new vehicles. The names of these vehicles are still identified by their Dev tag and are not yet finalized but the approximate vehicle class is; Sports Classic and Sports.

    Brand new Apartment - CCTV function with two AI-characters in your apartment running them. This feature is available for current-generation only.

    Three Heist-themed clothing items - these items are still identified by their Dev tag but are the following types; Special Outfit (available from the counter).
    Two Cops and Crooks-themed masks. These mask items are available in current-generation only.

    BZ Gas will now be purchasable from Ammu-Nation but can only be used in Heist missions - you are responsible for stocking-up on these and if you run out, your team mates will need to complete that objective for you.

    5 new hairstyles - these are still identified by their Dev tag.

    2 new contact lenses - these are still identified by their Dev tag.

    A new phone contact named 'Jeff' will be available, offering a chance to resurrect a killed-off Crew member during your Heist operation. The voice of this contact or any other options associated are still unknown at this point.

    Last-generation players will have the option to 'Email' other Crew members about your planned Heist mission, whoever emails you a Heist plan will be the leader of the operation.

    Current-generation players will have the option to 'Email' other Crew members about your planned Heist mission and have the ability to print those out in your Apartment and store in your documents, whoever emails you a Heist plan will be the leader of the operation.
    All players will have the ability to use their Heist planning board in order to select a location, chosen online-Crew members and their role and the length of time before the Heist request expires from their 'Email' app on their phone.

  • Uncharted 4 Looks Incredible on PS4

    uncharted 4So a new gameplay trailer of Uncharted 4 was just released, and the internet has been taken aback by how amazing the game currently looks. Personally, I'm not all that surprised at the quality of the fourth Uncharted installment, and I'll tell you why.

    Every time Naughty Dog have released a new game, their attention to detail has always been on point - they managed to release the Last of Us on the PS3 and make it look incredible, and every Uncharted release has always been miles ahead of every other game released in it's time in terms of graphical integrity.

    This time round, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End certainly looks like the best game the PlayStation 4 will have to offer, and everything from the sweat on Drake's back, to the pores in his face are textured by hand, and it's just phenomenal how Naughty Dog continue to amaze with the quality of their games.

    Something that really got me interested about the latest gameplay video was the amazing combat - it seems every fight was action packed and filled with tense struggles, especially when Drake was not equipped with a weapon, but his assailant was.

    I honestly think Uncharted 4 will be the best PlayStation 4 game for a long while, and there isn't really much coming anytime soon that will have the story, graphics and love that Naughty Dog have poured into A Thief's End. What are your thoughts on the game? Feel free to let us know your own opinions.

  • The Crew will Release with No Game-Breaking Bugs, Before Reviews

    the crew launch bugsAfter the controversy behind Assassins' Creed Unity, it's no surprise that many gamers are starting to worry about any games released by Ubisoft at this point, and it seems to have scared many people away from buying into the Crew, a new upcoming new gen racing game.

    Whilst the Crew has been in development for a long time and has even been pushed back so that Ubisoft can polish the quality of it, many people are still worried about any bugs that may be preset at launch.

    Ubisoft on the other hand seem pretty confident that there is nothing to worry about, and they have even mentioned that the Crew will be launched without any game-breaking bugs. This seems to be majorly down to the open beta stages of the Crew, something that Assassin's Creed Unity did not have.

    "For The Crew, we've reaped the benefits of a long term beta program, designed specifically to push our infrastructure as far as possible in real world situations, with thousands of players from all over the world playing the game at the same time."

    Interestingly, Ubisoft will not be giving any early copies of the Crew out to reviewers, so we will have no inside feedback about the game until after it has launched. This will mean that players will not have any critic reviews to go on when making a purchasing decision, so those that are worried about the quality of the game may want to wait a couple of days before diving in.

  • Telltale's Game of Thrones Hits Consoles December 2nd

    telltale games game of thronesTelltale are pretty good at telling tales, let's be honest. They created the award winning The Walking Dead series, managed to live up to their high expectations with The Wolf Among Us, and very recently they returned to their story-telling roots by releasing Tales of The Borderlands - a great new game that follows the concoction Telltale are known for whilst exploring the backstory behind the Borderlands universe.

    Now, they have plans to release their in-development Game of Thrones game, and it's launch date has been set for December 2nd. On this date, the first part of a six episode series will be released for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3 and PlayStation 4, with an iOS release following shortly after.

    It seems that the entire Game of Thrones six-piece series will be available for just $30, although details on whether players will be able to buy each episode separately have not yet been mentioned by anyone at Telltale.

    I've played through The Walking Dead game by Telltale so I know there's a lot of potential for this Game of Thrones themed game too, but what do you think of the upcoming Game of Thrones Telltale game?

    It will be interesting to see how the game correlates with the story, and i'm sure a lot of die-hard GoT fans will be eager to find out just how close to the lore Telltale have stuck to with their game.

    Will you be picking up the new game on launch, waiting for reviews or skipping it entirely? Let us know your thoughts.

  • 100 Best Advanced Warfare Players Rewarded with Gold Armor

    advanced warfare grand master armorSledgehammer Games have just announced a brand new armor set for Call of Duty Advanced Warfare, but it will be limited to the very best players in the world.

    To get the newly announced armor, you will need to do more than just good. In fact, only the top 100 players in the world will be given access to it.

    The armor is a gold plated version of the bloodthirster armor, which can only be unlocked by receiving killstreaks within a multiplayer game. On top of earning the awesome gold plate armor set, the top 100 players will also be given the Grand Master name tag.

    Unfortunately, Sledgehammer Games have not revealed all of the details about this new armor yet, so we're unsure how the developer will rank the top 100 players. Whether or not it will be based on kill/death ratio, top played time, or simply the top 100 players in the global leaderboards, we're not sure, but we'll be sure to let you know as more details are revealed.

    As for the release date for the new Grand Master armor, once again we aren't sure, but we expect Sledgehammer Games will release more information about it fairly soon.

    What do you think about this new Grand Master armor? Do you think it is exciting that Sledgehammer are giving players an incentive to rank up in the leaderboards, and do you think they should offer lower tiered items for those who can't make it to the top 100?

  • New Capcom PS4 Game Announcement Soon

    capcom ps4 new gameIt's always exciting to hear about what games Capcom are currently working, and it's especially exciting at a time like this when the new generation of consoles is desperately in need of new games.

    Fortunately, according to reports Capcom is gearing up to announce a brand new PlayStation 4 game, and it should hopefully be something to dance about. Whilst we aren't sure about what game Capcom could possibly have up their sleeves just yet, Jun Takeuchi, Capcom company director recently mentioned in an interview with Famitsu that "PlayStation 4 development has been ongoing."

    In response to this, Takeuchi also mentioned that it's taken a while for Capcom to get to grips with the new system. "SCE has made a really incredible system for us," Takeuchi said. "But the more I use the system the more it seems there is to uncover."

    When asked about if Capcom had plans to release any PS4 games we do not yet know about, Takeuchi had a very positive response. "Of course. Right now we're seeing how far we can push the game engine. You'll be surprised by the quality of the games we're working on right now. I think we'll be able to announce it son, so please look forward to it."

    As a final note, Takeuchi ended the interview with his thoughts about trying to get seen by the rest of the world, and their new game has got to, "Be something that will even turn heads overseas."

  • New Dark Souls 2 Version Planned for PS4 and Xbox One

    dark souls 2 ps4It seems that developers can't keep away from the lure of bringing their last gen games to the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One, and seeing as the new version of GTA V managed to bring in over 3 million sales on it's first week, there is no blaming them.

    One such developer that has been rumored to join the next gen remake game is From Software, the guys behind the disgustingly challenging Dark Souls 2.

    Whilst they already have plans to bring Bloodborne to the PS4, which will be a completely new game for new gen consoles, From Software have also been working on a new remake for PS4 and Xbox One, according to Namco Bandai, From Software's publishers.

    The new remake edition will be called Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin, and it will come with the full game and the three previously released DLC packs. Whilst the exciting part of this news is based on the fact that the game will come to Xbox One and PS4, the new remake will also make it to PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

    The new gen versions will however have updated graphics, rebalanced gameplay and an increased maximum player count in online games, as well as even more challenging enemies that all make use of the PS4 and Xbox One's improved hardware.

    Will you be interested in picking up From Software's Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin, or has the first playthrough worn you out?

  • Season Pass for Assassins Creed Unity Cancelled

    assassins creed unity season passAfter all of the issues that have plagued Assassin's Creed Unity since it's launch, it seems as if Ubisoft have lifted up the white flag. In fact, the developers have now decided that not only are they going to give away free DLC to say sorry to those that purchased the game, but they are now planning to get rid of the season pass completely.

    It has already been announced that the Dead Kings DLC for AC: Unity will be made free for everybody, but they've now confirmed that they will be ditching the season pass, which means it will no longer be for sale, and any future DLC will most likely be put on sale separately.

    For those that have already purchased the season pass, Ubisoft have you covered - you will be able to pick out a game from their library and download it for absolutely free. There are only a few select games to choose from, but I think Ubisoft simply limited the choice to make it less confusing for their customers.

    The games that will be free to season pass holders will be Far Cry 4, The Crew, Watch Dogs, Assassin's Creed: Black Flag, Just Dance 2015 and Rayman Legends.

    Despite the season pass being removed from the game, Assassins' Creed Unity season pass holders will still get free access to all future content, so the free game is an added bonus. It's odd that Ubisoft have taken this route, but i'm sure this is the best way to keep as many players happy as possible.

  • Free DriveClub DLC to Say Sorry to Players

    free driveclub dlcIf you've been keeping an eye on the progress of Driveclub recently, you'll be aware that the game has had some issues since it's launch. Since the game was released via the PlayStation Network, players have been complaining about the server problems that have prohibited any sort of online play, something that the game heavily relies on.

    The servers are pretty much all fixed now, but Evolution Studios understands that it was a big inconvenience for many players, and to say sorry they will be offering two premium DLC packs, previously planned for release this month, as a free content pack that any player can download.

    The official statement from Evolution Studios said, "We know you have all been extremely patient and understandably frustrated during Driveclub's launch, and to show our appreciation for the support during this challenging time, we will be offering the premium DLC packs for November."

    The two premium DLC packs planned for November are the Ignition Expansion pack and the Photo-Finish Tour Pack, and will add five new cars, 10 new trophies, 22 tour events and 10 livery items for both offline and online play.

    To make sure season pass holder's aren't missing out, Evolution Studios will be expanding the Season Pass to include four extra premium packs planned next year.

    It's great to see that Driveclub are offering up some free content to say thank you - they certainly don't have to do this, but seeing as they are shows that they are trying to keep the players happy, especially when issues like server problems are affecting gameplay.

  • Huge Halo 5 Guardians Gameplay Video Released

    halo 5 guardians gameplayA brand new video has just made it online that shows off a whole games worth of online content from 343 Industry's upcoming game, Halo 5 Guardians.

    Straight away, it's clear that the gameplay has been evolved more so than any Halo game before it. The first thing that is noticeable is that a lot of elements from Halo 4 have been incorporated into Halo 5 Guardians, including the various power drops and the overall look and feel of the gameplay.

    However, a lot of new things have been added to make the game feel more in-line with other AAA shooters on the market. For example, players can now dodge sideways, similarly to COD: Advanced Warfare, and players can also jump over objects in a similar style to Call of Duty games too.

    A new aim-down sight feature has been added, although there is no negative effects to hip firing luckily enough.

    If you are a long time Halo fan, you may not like what you see. Check out the multiplayer video here.

    Do you think 343 Industries have taken Halo a little too far? It's nice to see change, but are they taking the wrong turns? We would love to hear your opinions on this subject. Unfortunately, 343 Industries are trying to win back the mainstream market, and they are doing this by making choices that change the game into something Call of Duty players will be able to relate to.
