  • Deus Ex Mankind Divided Trademarked by Square Enix

    deus ex mankind divided]Square Enix has just grabbed the Trademark rights for the phrase "Deus Ex: Mankind Divided" in the United Kingdom, and this could mean we've got a new upcoming Deus Ex title to look for. The trademark was filed on March 27th, so it could still be a while before we see or hear anything else about this new Deus Ex game, however Square Enix and Eidos Montreal did reveal earlier in October 2013 that they do have plans to release a new Deus Ex title for the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One.

    If you were enjoyed playing through Human Revolution, then you should be happy to hear that the upcoming Deus Ex game will be worked on by the same core team that worked through the last title, which was released in 2011.
    Unsurprisingly, not much has been released for the new Deus Ex game, although there has been a concept art image showcased. (shown above.) Producer David Anfossi revealed that the art, "represents a 'ghetto-city' voluntarily built in order to separate the classes. The people in this segregated class have reshaped their environment, nostalgic for their ideal of Cyber Renaissance. This dark and dystopian vision sets the tone for things to come in Deus Ex."
    If we’re lucky, we may see a little something of the upcoming Deus Ex game at this year's E3, if not, then Eidos and Square Enix should most likely have something to show us by the end of this year.

  • Alien Isolation Planned for October 7th Release

    alien isolation release dateCreative Assembly have released plans on their upcoming survival horror video game set in the Alien world called Alien Isolation, and if everything goes to plan, the new game should be available this October.

    Creative Assembly lead creative Alistair Hope released a statement saying, "We couldn't be happier to finally announce a date for Alien: Isolation. The reaction we have seen so far has been simply incredible, from the screams and shrieks to the cold sweats and racing hearts. It's the Alien game that we've always wanted to play and we can't wait to let everyone get their hands on it this fall."

    Creative Assembly revealed the title at this years' EGX Rezzed on Saturday, and Creative, along with their publisher, SEGA, have high hopes for the title.

    So far, not too much is known about the gameplay content, however it is clear that Alien Isolation will follow the story of Ellen Ripley’s daughter. Amanda Ripley will face various scares and thrills throughout the game, and a lot of gamers seem to be pretty excited for the upcoming title.

    The game has been praised for it's intense, scary moments, and I think Creative Assembly may have given the Alien series what it deserves this time round.
    Alien Isolation will be a cross platform title, and will be available for PS3, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC on October 7th as long as everything goes to plan leading up to that date.

  • Diablo 3 is Coming to Xbox One

    diablo 3Blizzard has confirmed that Diablo 3 will be coming to the Xbox One, amidst concerns that the game has not given a proper introduction to players using Xbox consoles. Lead producer for Diablo 3, Alex Mayberry stated in an interview with VideoGamer that, "I don't know where we are with Microsoft right now so I can't really comment on what that contract looks like. The point is we are developing for Xbox One and PS4 simultaneously. We hit those major platforms and then our goal as a development team is to make them run."

    "We have that pipeline worked out, and then Blizzard and Microsoft can work out whatever they work out."

    Many fans have been interested in a Diablo 3 for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, especially seeing as the first expansion pack for the title, Reaper of Souls, was released earlier this week for PC and Mac.

    Blizzard has also confirmed that there will be a bundle pack for the PlayStation 4 which will be named the Ultimate Evil Edition - this bundle will come with Diablo 3 and the Reaper of Souls expansion. It's possible that there could be an Xbox One version of this bundle pack in the works too.

    For now though, players will have to put up with playing the latest expansion on a PC or Mac if they are eager to play it as soon as possible. The PlayStation 4 won't be too long away though, either.

  • DriveClub Devs went back to the Drawing Board

    driveclub developers

    If you're wondering where the hell DriveClub has been, don't worry, it's been delayed for good reason. Sony has revealed that the developers currently working on DriveClub have gone back to the drawing board, in an attempt to ensure that the game is of it's best quality upon it's release.

    Despite being planned as a launch title game, it has already been delayed once to early 2014, but seeing as we're already close to Q2 2014, it looks as if DriveClub has been delayed once more.

    So far, no release date has been given, but previous rumors did suggest that the game would be ready for September. It's a shame to have to wait so long for such an anticipated title, but it really is for the best. So many AAA games are being released before they are fully ready, and it ruins the overall experience of the game.

    If the developers that are working on DriveClub need extra time to refine the title to make sure the game plays and feels smooth, then so be it. We as gamers should learn to be patient, because the more time a developer is given on a title, the better that title will be when it is finally released.

    For now, no real release window is concrete, but we'll keep you updated as more news comes in about DriveClub, including any gameplay content and release information.

  • Huge 13GB Dead Rising 3 Update Available

    Dead Rising 3 Patch

    I mentioned a while before about how the digital era of video games isn't quite here, and the main reason for that is because games have got to the stage where they are so graphically advanced, and so full of content that they take up masses of storage space.

    The following news should simply prove my point further that digital downloads will not be able to push the disc format to extinction for at least another 5-10 years, at least where the console scene is concerned.

    The news is that Dead Rising 3 has just received a huge 13GB download update, and to be honest, we're not quite sure why. Xbox Studio manager tweeted out "Wow, a 13GB DR3 update? Holy ... good thing I have 110mbps."

    Unfortunately for those that live in more rural areas, you may have to wait a few hours, or a day, before your update completes.

    One possible reason for this huge 13GB update is that it will patch in the four upcoming DLC packs for Dead Rising 3, which would mean that when a player buys a DLC pack, they'll simply be able to unlock it and play it straight away, instead of having to download it once it has been purchased.

    This would seem to make sense, especially considering the first DLC pack will be released this week.

    Operation Broken Eagle is a story expansion which adds on a subplot to the main game, and follows a different character instead of the main protagonist, as well as adding a few new items to play around with.

  • Quick Scoping will be Useless in Titanfall

    Call of Duty has brought the world a type of gamer that likes to impress, and whether you're the guy with 1337 360 NoScope skills, or the person getting frustrated on the other end of the barrel, by the time Titanfall is on your console, it's going to be a different story.

    no quick scoping titanfall

    A developer at Respawn Entertainment has spoke to the community about snipers, he started by stating that snipers will be an important part of Titanfall, but the nature of snipers in Titanfall is different to how they work in most modern military shooters, and the mechanics in Titanfall will make your COD snipers skills ineffective.

    "Sniping is in the game, but due to how the game plays it's a pretty different animal than you'll find in your run of the mill modern military shooter. Quick scoping and no scoping are ineffective."

    So far, no more details have been given on how snipers will work in Titanfall, but I can imagine that sniping will be rendered useless unless scoped in and remaining still, making snipers vulnerable targets whilst aiming for shots with their powerful weapons.

    I'm sure players will find a way to try and "cheat" the snipers in Titanfall, but no matter how you try to use your sniper in Titanfall, no scoping and quick scoping certainly won't be an overpowered tactic like it is in Call of Duty.

    Titanfall will be released exclusively to Xbox One and PC, and will be released on the 13th of March.

  • New Mass Effect Game Now in Playable State

    There's still no real information on what kind of game the new Mass Effect game will be, but BioWare general manager Aaryn Flynn revealed that the game is now in a "playable state" and it feels "fresh, but recognizable."

    It's already been confirmed that the new Mass Effect game won't be a direct sequel or prequel to the Commander Shephard series, and will instead focus on an entirely different story within the Mass Effect universe.

    In fact, Commander Shephard and his crew won't play any part in the new Mass Effect game at all, and the gameplay will be entirely different to what we remember from the first trilogy.

    Whilst this doesn't give much information about what kind of gameplay the new Mass Effect game will offer, it suggests that the game will offer a different gameplay experience to the action shooter RPG we've recognized in ME1, 2 and 3.

    This could mean we could end up with a Mass Effect golfing game for all we know, but it's much more likely to involve some kind of combat. Perhaps we'll end up with a team based shooter that has a larger focus on squad tactics.

    new mass effect game

    Or perhaps BioWare will go with the trends and turn the new Mass Effect game into an online multiplayer experience, an MMO? FPS deathmatch game? Who knows..

     

    We'll have to wait till BioWare releases more information about the upcoming title, unfortunately.

  • Will There Be a Titanfall Beta? - It's a Possibility

    Titanfall devs, Respawn Entertainment aren't quite sure whether there will be a Titanfall Beta or not yet, but they are certainly considering it at this point in time. Vince Zampella, co founder at Respawn confirmed that they are "definitely thinking about it" when asked about a possible Titanfall beta, however at this point in time it's unclear what kind of access would be available for such a thing.

    Titanfall Beta

    If a Beta does come about, it could be possible that it could be restricted to pre-orderers only, or it may end up being even stricter, but right now it's hard to speculate.

     

    I think that it would be best for Respawn Entertainment to release a Titanfall Beta because with the massive scale of most FPS games these days, it's rare that a FPS console game ever releases without bugs, exploits and issues on day one. A beta would help Titanfall to iron out gameplay kinks and focus on server stability.

    Vince Zampella also commented on Kinect integration by saying that it just "didn't fit the game," meaning that there won't be any added Kinect functionality to Titanfall, leaving players with just their trusty controller in their hand.

    Personally I cannot wait for Titanfall to release, and a Beta would definitely be a good way to give us a little sneak peak at what's to come in the full release.

    We'll keep you updated on any new information that comes out about the beta.

  • Ultra Realistic Project Cars Screenshots Shown

    Racing fans, you've got a real treat in-store this year. On top of the awe inspiring Drive Club, and the possibility of a new FlatOut game, you've now got the beautiful world of Project Cars to look forward to.

    New Project Cars Screenshots

    60 new screenshots have been released by Slightly Mad Studios, and they highlight the amazing graphical fidelity that will be found within Project Cars. If you thought Forza is good, then Slightly Mad Studios' Project Cars will definitely take your breath away.

    I'm sure Slightly Mad probably put a lot of effort into making sure these screenshots showed the absolute best of the game, however they have revealed that everything has been done in-game, meaning that all 60 screenshots were from real gameplay.

    "As usual, all shots show purely in-game footage that has not been made in any special photo mode, using no post-processing or filters that aren't available during the actual gameplay. What you see is what you experience while driving!"

    It's important to mention that all 60 screenshots were taken from the PC version of the game, so it will be interesting to see what the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions look like.

    Slightly Mad Studios have had experience with other racing games such as Need for Speed: Shift and Shift 2: Unleashed in the past, so I expect that on top of the great graphics, the game will turn out to be pretty fun, too.

    Project Cars is set for a full release on Xbox One, PS4, Wii U, PC and Steam OS late 2014.

  • Prologue Trailer for Capcom's F2P Deep Down Released

    A new prologue trailer has been released for Capcom's upcoming next gen free to play title, Deep Down. The trailer depicts what looks to be two players fighting monsters within a dungeon, however no actual gameplay footage is shown, and instead we're greeted with a bunch of cinematics again.

    Deep Down Gameplay Trailer The trailer does, however, show that Capcom's Japanese roots are still intact, with a keyboard melody playing in the background akin to the old turn based Japanese RPGs, it's clear who's Capcom's target demographic is here.

    However, with it being free-to-play, Capcom haven't left out the rest of the world either, and we'll be able to get our hands on the game as soon as the Japanese can.

    The problem is, it's still unclear what kind of game Deep Down will actually be; gamers are comparing it mainly to Dark Souls, but comparisons to Assassins' Creed and other action RPGs are being made as well.

    Capcom is hinting at some kind of MMORPG twists to the game too, but once again it's unclear what this will mean for actual gameplay value.

    The truth is, no one is going to be interested in these trailers any longer unless Capcom shows some actual gameplay, so let's hope they get round to doing that before we get lost in Titanfall, Watch Dogs, Destiny, and any other nice looking titles that have impressive gameplay footage readily available on the internet.
