  • Deus Ex Mankind Divided Revealed

    deus ex mankind dividedA brand new Deus Ex game planned to follow on from the story of Human Revolution has been revealed and it will be making it's way to the Xbox One, the PlayStation 4 and the PC.

    The new Deus Ex title has been named Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and it will take place in 2029, two years after the events of Human Revolution. Many of non-augmented civilians were killed in Human Revolution, leaving the divide between humans and augmented humans at an all time high.

    Factions will form in Mankind Divided, all of which will have their own agenda and attitude towards augmentation. The game will focus on Adam Jensen, the same protagonist from the previous Deus Ex games. This time round, players will need to rely even more on his augmented skills.

    Whilst not much else has been revealed about the game, a trailer was released which delved into the story of the Deus Ex universe a little. Deus Ex Human Revolution had one of the most engaging stories last generation and I hope that Mankind Divided will be just as good.

    We do not yet know when Mankind Divided will be released but it is clear that the game will arrive on the PlayStation 4, the Xbox One and the PC. If we're lucky we may see the game release at some point this year, but either way we're bound to hear a lot more about Mankind Divided in the very near future.

  • GTA Online Exploiters Being Blown to Pieces

    gta online duke o deathIn a new update to Grand Theft Auto Online, a certain exploit is causing abusers to blow up into a fiery explosion of shame and guilt. Whilst the exploit that this new update applies to isn't entirely game breaking, it's nice to see that Rockstar are stopping bug abusers in an out of the box fashion.

    When the new generation version of Grand Theft Auto 5 was released, the Duke 'O Death vehicle was added to the singleplayer of the game. The vehicle was however not added to the multiplayer version of the game. Many players have managed to find an exploit that allowed them to add the Duke O' Death to Grand Theft Auto Online and it allowed them to drive the car around freely and even use it in certain events and missions.

    Obviously this is not a very fair exploit as it allows players to get a very decent car without putting any effort in. Fortunately Rockstar have stopped exploiters in their traps, and whilst the exploit can still be performed, as soon as a player tries to enter the Duke O' Death the car will implode, killing the player on impact.

    I think it's awfully fitting to see the Duke O' Death cause so many player deaths in the latest update, and I'm glad that Rockstar took this humorous approach instead of punishing the players further. The bug exploit was unfair but it was no way near as serious as cheating can be. In the past, Rockstar had to spend a lot of their resources dealing with online hackers that would fill other player's inventories with billions of dollars of cash.

  • Crazy Advanced Warfare Stats Revealed

    Sledgehammer Games has recently released a large infographic that contains a variety of information relating to player's accumalative stats in Advanced Warfare since the game has been released. In the infographic, details about player kills, weapon usage and grenade usage has been displayed. Other details give information about the exo zombie survival mode, whilst some stats share details on the various exo suit abilities.

    2,591,920,137, or roughly 2.5 billion exo zombies have been killed since the release of Advanced Warfare, and 223 million zombie waves have been cleared by players.

    Players have collected 1,397,836,776 supply drops, and over 2 billion items have been collected, with roughly 300 million of those being elite items.

    One of my favorite stats on the new info-graphic includes details about how far players have jumped with the new boost jumps in Advanced Warfare. Over 105 trillion jumps have been made by players online. Sledgehammer Games has stated that this is enough distance to cover the circumference of the earth 14 thousand times. Now that is a lot of boost jumping.

    Unfortunately the info-graphic did not give stats on player average kill ratios or any other information about player performance or weapon preference. The info-graphic did state that 24% of weapons used were assault rifles, 19% were SMGs, 16% were heavy weapons and just 13% were snipers.

    If you could learn any stats about Call of Duty Advanced Warfare, what kind of stats would you be interested to learn about? I personally think it would be great to see details about player performance and general weapon usage, instead of just weapon class usage.

  • Rainbow Six Siege Beta Registration Available

    rainbow six siege betaIf you're interested in trying out the new Rainbow Six game before it is released, you may want to go and head over to the Ubisoft website, as registration for the upcoming beta has officially opened.

    The beta will be available on PS4, Xbox One and PC, unlike the previous alpha test that was exclusively for PC players. Whilst there are no details on how many players will get the chance to play the Rainbow Six Siege beta, there is certainly a limited number of spaces available, and players can increase their chances by answering certain questions on the registration page.

    The registration page asks players about their experience with games in the past, as well as details about their rig if they are playing on PC, and general questions you'd expect to see from a closed beta registration.

    Whilst this is an option for players to try Rainbow Six Siege without buying the game, players can also pre-order to get 100% guaranteed access into the beta. So far, no details have been given on when the beta test will happen, how long it will last for, and whether it will be only beta or if it will be the first in a series of betas.

    Just like the beta launch date, the actual release of Rainbow Six Siege is not yet set in stone, but it's likely that the upcoming alpha and beta tests will help Ubisoft to determine how long they'll need to finish up the game ready for release.

  • Only God of War 3 Will Get PS4 Remaster

    god of war 3 remaster 3

    Earlier in the month, Sony announced that they will be releasing a remastered version of God of War 3 for the PlayStation 4.

    The remastered version will have a 1080p resolution and will play on the PlayStation 4 at 60 frames per second. The game has been mentioned to cost $40, and it will release on July 14.

    Because of the sudden announcement, many players have wondered with Sony will plan to release other God of War games on the PlayStation 4. Thankfully, Sony Santa Monica have responded, giving us details on their future plans for the franchise.

    Sony Santa Monica's Aaron Kaufman explained a little about God of War remasters in a new blog post on the PlayStation blog. "Remasters often help us open the door to new players who perhaps did not play God of War 3 5 years ago, but who we can bring it to on the PlayStation 4."

    "People often forget, the more players we can bring into a franchise, the better for everyone. At Santa Monica Studio, we'd like as many PlayStation fans to experience our games as possible, from generation to generation."

    Despite their positivity towards remastered games, Kaufman ended with, "No plans for others in the franchise to bring over."

    Even if we don't see any more remastered versions of the God of War games on the PlayStation 4, it'd still be great to see God of War 3. Sony Santa Monica are also working on another game which we know nothing about, other than the fact that it will apparently be "freaking huge."

  • Gears of War Collection Rumors hit the Internet

    gears of war collectionEver since the launch of the Xbox One, there have been constant rumors about the possibility of a Gears of War return, but we have heard any credible information about any new Gears of War content just yet.

    Recently, cover based shooter, The Order: 1866 released exclusively to the PlayStation 4, and this just sparked the internet with even more Gears of War rumors. It's very likely that something Gears of War related is going to come to the Xbox One, but so far we have no idea what it could be.

    Recently, two images have hit the internet that suggest that we may even see a Gears of War collection for the Xbox One. Expected to include Gears of War 1, 2 and 3, (and maybe Judgement if anybody is really that interested.) the collection has been suggested to release next year by renowned Xbox leakster Shinobi602.

    It doesn't stop there though - a message sent to Phil Spencer makes it seem as if the Collection could definitely be happening. The message asked if we were ever going to see a Gears of War collection, to which Phil Spencer responded "Haha, I can't announce that. But stay tuned." Hopefully we'll hear something about what Phil Spencer means by this comment soon.

    Would you be happy to see a Gears of War collection for the Xbox One that contained all of the previous games in the franchise, or would you rather see a completely new game in the franchise?

  • The GTA V Heist Update: Some Details

    gta v heist updateAs you probably are aware, heists have finally been released for GTA Online. In the latest update, heists were added, as well as a few other details.

    The most obvious and exciting part of the heists update is of course the heists. There are a total of five different heists in online, although the first one is a basic tutorial heist, explaining the basics for a team of two players.

    The next four heists are full scale missions that can be completed with you and three of your friends. There are different difficulty modes to make the heists more challenging, and various monetary rewards in the millions for completing all of the heists with the same team members.

    It's not just the heists in the new update though. Whilst Rockstar have not yet released any patch notes for it, the new update has a few other small things worth mentioning. Firstly, players can now choose to paint all of the rims in the chrome color, instead of using the single chrome plated rim.

    There is also a new motion blur setting that allows you to increase the blurring vision you'll see when moving your view. Personally I never saw the appeal of motion blur, but it is something many players have asked for since the launch of GTA V. Hopefully Rockstar will release a full patch notes post so that we can see exactly what changes have been made to the game.

  • Surprise, Surprise - Another Project Cars Delay

    project cars delayThere's something about driving games and constant delays and setbacks that has rippled through the gaming industry recently. Whilst in recent talks, SCEE CEO Jim Ryan mentioned that the PS Plus edition of Driveclub still has no planned release, Project Cars will also get another setback.

    Fortunately this time the delay for Project Cars will not be massive, but the game launch will be pushed back to April 2, 2015, instead of the previously planned March release.

    Before you get mad at Slightly Mad studios, it's important to understand the impact these delays have on development. If we look at a game like Assassin's' Creed Unity, which was released in an absolute poor state, we can accredit it to nothing more than developers being incredibly pushed for time by their publisher to get their games out on a set date.

    These delays for Project Cars will (hopefully) mean that the full retail product will be as close to what we were hoping. There shouldn't be nearly as many problems, bugs or game breaking issues that have plagued many other AAA games in recent months.

    The head of Project Mad, Ian Bell, has stated that "these extra days will allow us to provide the best game experience that our fans deserve. We assure you the wait will be worth it when the game does arrive early April."

    I'm sure by now most gamers will much rather choose the delayed release option to the buggy, unplayable on-time route that some developers have chosen, so I'm actually glad to see Project Cars get setback a few days.

  • Game of Thrones Episode 2 Gets a Teaser Trailer

Episode 2 will then be released on Xbox One and Xbox 360 on February 4th, before launching on iOS and Android on February 5th.

    Here is the teaser information for Game of Thrones Episode 2 by Telltale Games

    "House Forrester is in disarray. Their liege lord and his heir are dead, and Ironrath is occupied by Whitehill soldiers. The survival of the family depends upon those who are left. Placed at King's Landing, the epicenter of intrigue, Mira Forrester must weigh her loyalty to Margaery Tyrell against the needs of her family, while choosing how to play the political games of Tyrion Lannister. One misstep could spell doom for Mira and her entire family.
    "To the far north, Gared Tuttle finds that the wall and its crows hold little love for a squire from the Wolfswood, but finds kinship in the bastard son of Ned Stark. Gared must prove worthy of becoming a ranger in order to carry out the mission given him; one that is vital to the future of those he serves. To the east, Asher Forrester, the exiled son, is called back to Westeros to aid his family, but how can one man help when the Boltons rule the north with an iron fist? Meanwhile, an unexpected source of hope returns to the Forresters, but Ironrath is no place for the weak."

  • Master Chief Collection Matchmaking Updates Incoming

    master chief collection matchmakinA new Master Chief Collection update has been planned to improve online matchmaking, but strangely 343 Industries will not make the update available to all players straight away.

    The update, which has since been delayed, was planned to fix many issues with the current in-game matchmaking system. Whilst 343 Industries did mention that they would release the update this month, new plans reveal that most players will not get to experience the update at all.

    Before full release, the matchmaking update will be pushed to a select few US beta participants, and these members will be able to help stress test the matchmaking before it is finally rolled out globally.

    To enter the beta process and be in with a chance of entering the matchmaking beta, you must reside in the US and join the Xbox One preview program. 343 Industries gave a small statement about the update.

    "In recent weeks, we have been conducting extensive internal testing of an upcoming content update for Halo: The Master Chief Collection."
    "Given the scale of the update, which includes changes to the matchmaking experience and party system, we are expanding testing to include select members of the Xbox One Preview program to ensure the official release is the best possible experience for all players.
    "The content update beta test is open to Xbox One owners within North America who have a copy of Halo: The Master Chief Collection and have opted-in for Xbox One beta testing as part of the Xbox One Preview program."
    "This is an opt-in opportunity and the content update will only be made available to selected participants within the Xbox One Preview program, based on the highest levels of engagement with Halo: The Master Chief Collection. On Friday, January 23, participants selected will be prompted to download the content update automatically when the title is started."
