  • New The Division Trailer Shows Off Quick Gameplay Shots

    the division trailerA brand new trailer for The Division has just been released by Ubisoft, and it reveals a few things about the Xbox One version of the game, as well as showing a short glimpse at real gameplay footage.

    Firstly, the new trailer for Tom Clancy's The Division reveals that Ubisoft are planning to share details on the Xbox One version of the game for the first time at this year's Gamescom. On top of this, the trailer shows off a few off-screen glimpses of gameplay from the E3 demo for The Division.

    I'm very interested to learn more about Tom Clancy's: The Division, and hopefully Ubisoft will be willing to share a few details about the game at this year's Gamescom, which is under way this month.

    Whether Ubisoft will open up a real playable demo to visitors of Gamescom, or whether they'll keep gameplay to themselves is currently unknown, but I expect we'll be seeing some kind of Xbox One based gameplay footage very shortly at Gamescom.

    Tom Clancy's The Division is looking to be one of the most unique titles announced for the new gen, and many gamers are incredibly excited to see exactly what the game will consist of.

    So far, we know that The Division will be a "massive" multiplayer online third person shooter title that is based within a fragile, complex futuristic society that breaks down after a disease spreads through the US.

  • Halo 2 Campaign In Halo: the MCC Will Not Be 1080P

    halo 2 anniversary 1080pAt E3, Microsoft were very keen to introduce plenty of titles that will be playable in 1080P at a full, steady 60FPS, but it looks like new reports suggest this won't be entirely true. After rumors about a lack of 1080P support for Halo: The Master Chief Collection hit the web, 343 Industries' head, Frank O'Connor addressed the speculation.

    According to Frank O'Connor, all of the multiplayer segments of the Master Chief Collection, including Halo 2 and Halo 2 anniversary will run at 60FPS at a resolution of 1080P, but it is possible that the campaign of the Halo 2 anniversary will run at a different resolution.

    This resolution change will help ensure that the Halo 2 anniversary campaign runs at a solid 60 frames per second, as it seems 343 are having issues reaching a decent frame rate for the Master Collection segment on 1080P.

    These current resolution choices are not 100% final, though, and the current Halo 2 anniversary graphics are still work in progress, so it's possible that the 1080P resolution could be released for the anniversary campaign by the time the game collection has been released.

    Whilst it's a shame that the Halo 2 anniversary campaign may not be played at a 1080P resolution, I don't personally see it as anything to get mad over. The reasons why the 1080P resolution can't be reached on the Xbox One is unclear, but it sounds as if it is something to do with the new anniversary graphics, and if that is the case, it's very likely the standard Halo 2 graphics will still be displayed with a 1080P resolution.

  • Crackdown 3 Trailer Shown Off at E3

    crackdown 3 trailerI think a lot of us purchased the original Crackdown just to get access to the Halo 3 beta, but despite this, I, along with many others, found the game to be very enjoyable. Crackdown 2 was not as well received as the first title was, but Microsoft may be able to redeem themselves, as they have just revealed plans to release Crackdown 3 for the Xbox One.

    At E3, Microsoft shared a reveal trailer for Crackdown 3, and it manages to perfectly capture the environments and experiences that the original Crackdown game was best known for. Dave Jones, the original creator for the Crackdown series will be at the head of the latest iteration in the franchise, so hopefully he'll be able to create an experience that will be enjoyable as the first game.

    Despite being the third game in the franchise, Crackdown 3 has simply been named "Crackdown." So far, no details have been given for the release date of the latest Crackdown game, so it's likely the title will have a 2015 release at the earliest. This E3 was a pretty decent one for Microsoft, and it won't be long before the Xbox One has a wide library of games to choose from. Let's just hope Crackdown has decent enough gameplay to make it a title worth owning. I personally have hopes for the new title, but we'll have to wait and see what Microsoft have in store for us.

  • Two New AAA Games Coming from Deep Silver This E3

    deep silver aaa gamesOver the last few years, Deep Silver have been kept busy. A lot of developers have gone to them for help with publishing, and they are now the publisher for many different development studios, including 4A Games, the development team behind Metro Last Light.

    This year, Deep Silver have plans to announced two brand new triple A titles, and details of these will be shared at E3. According to Forbes writer Jason Evangelho, Deep Silver will reveal "two unannounced AAA games," which has certainly got us at Evil Controllers curious.

    So far, we have no idea what the two new games from Deep Silver could be, and whether these new titles will be sequels to already existing franchises, or whether they will be completely new IP is currently unknown.

    Seeing as we haven't heard much about IP filings and the such, it's more likely that the new AAA games will be parts of existing franchises. This means we could expect to see a brand new Dead Island title, or perhaps a new Metro game.

    More interestingly, Volition Games now have the rights to make a new Saints Row title, which means we could even expect to see a brand new SR game under a fresh new face. At this point in time, it's all just speculation, but with E3 just around the corner, we really don't have that much waiting to do before we can get our hands on juicy new information from Deep Silver.

  • Six EA Games Under Development Will Be Shown at E3

    EA E3 Game Reveal

    EA has confirmed in their latest earnings report that, apart from bringing in a net revenue of $4,012 million, there are six new games planned for announced at this year's E3 event. All six games are currently under development, and no details have been given on what exactly these six games are.

    We can of course expect to hear more about FIFA World Cup 14 this year, as well as a variety of other sports games, including FIFA 15, MADDEN NFL 15, NBA 15 and NHL 15. EA may also finally give more information on the Sims 4, which has previously been announced by the video game publisher.

    EA Sports UFC has been planned for Q1 2015, so we may hear a little more about that, and EA still have plans to release a new golf title at some point in 2015. All of these titles are expected, and apart from Sims there isn't too much in this list that really gets me interested.

    However, there are a couple of other games that may make an appearance at this year's E3. The first one is Dragon Age: Inquisition - this is a title that we've seen a lot of concept art of recently, but we still haven't seen a solid vision of the game.

    The second title is of course Star Wars Battlefront. DICE already seem pretty keen to show off what they have prepared for the new Battlefront game, and I'm sure a lot of gamers around the globe can't wait to see what the Battlefield developer has done with the title.

    There's no confirmation on what six games will be shown at E3 this year, but out of these games, both Battlefront and Dragon Age: Inquisition look like safe bets.

  • Guerrilla Games New IP Could Be Open World RPG

    guerrilla Games new IPLast week, details were revealed about Guerrilla Games plans to develop a brand new IP for the PlayStation 4, however at the time we had absolutely no idea what kind of game the development studio would be working on.

    One week later, we're still not any better off in terms of official information for Guerrilla Games new IP, but some rumors have started to come in, and some of them sound quite exciting. According to an "insider," Guerrilla Games will be developing a brand new open world RPG title, which is comparable to 'the scope of Witcher 3', most likely in reference to the size of the open world.

    According to the same insider, Guerrilla Games will be making an official reveal for their new IP at this year's E3 expo, so we don't really have too much longer to find out the truth.

    If Guerrilla Games are making an open world RPG, it would be very interesting to see just how well they create such an experience, as their studio has a large portion of experience in first person shooter games, and not much proof of experience for any other type of game.

    Perhaps we can expect to see an RPG experience from Guerrilla Games similar to that of Destiny or Borderlands. However, a lot of developers are taking new routes, so it wouldn't be entirely out of the question to see something completely free from shooter mechanics and gameplay.

    We'll keep you updated as more news comes in on this.

  • New Destiny Gameplay Video Shared By Bungie

    destiny class gameplayBungie has just released a 7 minute long gameplay video of Destiny, showcasing real in-game footage of the title, and it's certainly got some gamers hyped.

    At first look, the similarities between Bungie's previous game series, Halo, and Destiny can be easily spotted. The overall experience that we've come to love was never a Halo experience, it was a Bungie experience.

    The new gameplay video is filled with the same cinematic backgrounds every Halo game has been renowned for, and the overall world design feels very reminiscent of various scenes from the Halo universe. Even the overall AI combat system in Destiny feels slightly similar to a firefight between a group of Elites and Grunts, and despite these similarities, Destiny has enough to spark curiosity among gamers.

    If you were to sum up Destiny in as small amount of words as possible, I think it would be best described as a Borderlands-Halo hybrid - the beauty of Bungie is still around every corner, but it's filled with progressive leveling, unlockable abilities and gear worth fighting for, making it a game focused on your own story, whilst lightly touching on the lore of the land as it is explored.

    It is of course a game that is centered around co-operative interactions, and whilst it is far from being an MMO, Destiny does offer an immersive world that you and your friends can explore together. It will be interesting to see what kind of reception Destiny gets upon it's launch later this year.

    You can check the gameplay video out here.

  • Screenshots for Batman: Arkham Knight Appear

    batman arkham knight batmobile

    The last Batman game let the rest of the series down a little, but it looks like Rocksteady Studios aren't looking to slow down production any time soon. New images have been shown off for the new and upcoming Batman: Arkham Knight game, and they pretty much capture everything we've already come to know and love in the dark Batman Arkham universe.

    The screenshots show a few different characters and gameplay mechanics in action. The most interesting is the new batmobile game mechanic. As players are traveling through the city in Batman: Arkham Knight, players will be able to call in the batmobile whilst gliding to a landing spot.

    The batmobile will smash through anything in it's way to give Batman a safe place to land. From here, players will be able to travel around the city streets with the vehicle, instead of just on foot or in the air.

    If you were let down by Arkham Origins, it's important to note that Origins was developed by Warner Bros. The upcoming Arkham Knight game will be made by Rocksteady Studios once again, so we can expect that the title will have the same gameplay quality as the first titles under RockSteady's name.

    Batman Arkham Knight has been speculated to release this October for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. We'll probably see some gameplay leading up to that, and perhaps a full gameplay teaser at E3 this year.

  • Minecraft's Notch Gets Invited to E3 by Sony

    Minecraft managed to land a huge amount of sales on the Xbox platform, but since then, talk of moving the popular game to PlayStation has been pretty quiet. However, Sony has very recently sent Notch, the main developer of Minecraft, a golden PSOne as 'special VIP pass' to E3. On top of this, Notch also got sent a copy of Dungeon Master 2 to play on the console.

    Could this mean anything past the fact that Sony want Notch to come and view them reveal more information about the PlayStation 4? - Probably very likely. But what could the reason be for Notch's VIP pass? The first thing that comes to mind is that Minecraft will be revealed for the PlayStation, but whether that's for PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 3 is currently unknown.

    It would make sense that Minecraft was put out for both platforms as it would allow players to play Minecraft whether they are on the new console or the old one.

    Another possibility is that Notch may be teaming up with Sony to bring out a new game by Mojang studios.

    Would you prefer to play Minecraft on the PlayStation or have a completely brand new game by Notch and Mojang instead?

  • Xbox One Will "Kill Sony at E3"

    The above words aren't my own, but are instead the words of Craig Davidson, the head of global marketing at Microsoft. He believes that at this year's E3, Microsoft will put up a show capable of kicking Sony and their PlayStation 4 in the dust...already.

    However, after Microsoft disappointed gamers by revealing a huge amount of sports, sports, sports and TV on the Xbox One, there is no doubt that many gamers are looking to the PlayStation 4 instead.

    Perhaps Microsoft can woo the crowd at E3, but with the non-gaming related media content, pay-to-play second hand gaming, worse hardware than the PS4 and bundled Kinect 2.0 sensor that will only raise the cost of the overall price, Microsoft have dug themselves a hole that's going to be very hard to get out of.

    There's no doubt that both Sony and Microsoft will be trying to get the most attention at E3, but to be honest, right now it's much too hard to work out who will come out on top at the end of this year, if anyone.

    What console do you think you'll prefer? The Xbox One or PlayStation 4?
