  • DICE Putting Heist Mode in Next Hardline Beta

    heist mode hardline betaDICE has announced that they will be releasing the Heist mode into the upcoming Battlefield Hardline beta, but there is a catch. Players will need to work together as a community to unlock the Heist mode.

    A new 'community mission' has been announced for Battlefield 4 players, and it asks players to accumulate a global total of 2 billion points in Battlefield 4's Rush mode. If players manage to reach this goal before the end of the month, then players will be rewarded with the Heist mode for Battlefield Hardline.

    Whilst this seems like an odd move to get more people playing Battlefield 4 in anticipation for Hardline, I have a feeling that the 2 billion Rush points should easily be reached. In fact, I expect that the average amount of weekly Rush points is close enough to two billion anyway so players should not have to worry about getting the Heist mode unlocked for the Hardline beta.

    If you do want to do your part, you can head into Battlefield 4 and play through any Rush mode to accumulate points for the challenge.

    So far, two other game modes have been announced for Hardline beta, and Heist would be the third. The first game mode is Conquest, a 64 players slaughter fest, and Hotwire, a vehicle based Cops and Criminals style game mode. It seems like most items and gadgets will be available in the Hardline beta - Visceral Games are using this as their last chance to test everything to make sure it all works.

    "The beta is your shot to test the different classes, toy with different gadgets, and find your crew to take down your foes. To be frank, we want you to play this beta to death. We need you to. This test is only going to make the game stronger, and help us take a look at ways we can ensure we deliver the most stable launch you deserve."

  • Xbox One Neverwinter Closed Beta Planned for February

    xbox one neverwinterWhilst Zenimax Studios have been busy preparing the release of the Elder Scrolls Online for the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One, another MMO developer has been working on something else that could completely ruin the release of the ESO.

    The game in question is Neverwinter, a free to play MMO that landed on the PC in 2013. In February this year, the same Neverwinter that made it to PC will be coming to the Xbox One in the form of a closed beta.

    The closed beta will be accessible to a limited amount of players, chosen from a pool of players who have signed up for beta access on the Neverwinter website. The beta will last for three days and will begin on the 5th of February.

    Whilst Neverwinter is free to play, an Xbox Live Gold membership will be required to play it. In the new version of Neverwinter, aimed for consoles, the game will be compatible with the Xbox friends list so players can easily team up together for dungeons, quests or PVP.

    On top of the friends integration, Neverwinter for the Xbox One will receive a control revamp that will suit the Xbox One controller. Considering that the game is coming from the PC, which has access to multiple keys and bindings, it will be interesting to see how well the Neverwinter developers managed to port over the controls to the Xbox.

    Perhaps even more interesting is the fact that Neverwinter will be the first free to play MMO available on consoles that has been released in the last three years.

  • Digital Pre-orders for Evolve Will Reward Players Free Content

    digital evolve pre-ordersIf you are looking to buy Evolve, you may want to consider getting a pre-order in. The developers of Evolve have just announced that the game has gone gold, and to celebrate they are offering some in-game rewards for anybody that chooses to pre-order the digital copy of the game.

    If you pre-order the digital version of Evolve on the Xbox One, you will be given free access to the open beta that is going to take place on January 15th. This beta will included one monster named Wraith, and four hunters, named Parnell, Abe, Caira and Cabot.

    As well as having a little sneaky access to this content in the beta version of Evolve, players who pre-order the digital version of the game for Xbox One will also be given the same five characters at launch for free, straight from day one.

    Those who do not pre-order Evolve, or who play on another platform, will need to unlock the aforementioned characters to be able to play as them.

    This seems like a nice deal for those who want to support the game by pre-ordering, but it oddly is only available for digital pre-orders. If you have already pre-ordered a physical copy then you will not be given early access to the five hunters and the one monster once the game has launched later this year.

    Do you think it's smart for Microsoft to offer a deal such as this, or do you think they should open up the pre-order bonuses to all versions and platforms of Evolve?

  • Riptor Returns as New Killer Instinct Character

    riptor killer instinctSince the launch of Killer Instinct for the Xbox One, the developers behind the game have been slowly releasing more content for it over time. Perhaps the most exciting part of any new content releases for Killer Instinct are the introduction of new characters, or more specifically in this case, the re-introduction of characters from the franchise that did not make it into the game at launch.

    One such character is Riptor, and Microsoft Studios have just revealed their plans to bring him to the new Killer Instinct on the Xbox One. Riptor featured in the original Killer Instinct game, and is a hybrid between a human and a velociraptor. The character stands out from the crowd of other humanoid fighters in the game, not only for it's appearance, but for it's unique move set as well.

    Riptor will be entering the new Killer Instinct as part of the Killer Instinct 2 DLC, which will put players back a total of $19.99 for the Combo Breaker Season 2 pack, and a total of $39.99 for the Ultra Edition Season 2 pack.

    In the $20 bundle, players will get access to eighter fighters, five of which have so far been confirmed to be TJ Combo, Maya, Cinder, the new Kan-Ra, and now Riptor.

    The $40 pack includes the same characters, but also comes with some new accessories, as well as a copy of Killer Instinct 2 Classic which will be playable on the Xbox One.

  • Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster In the Works

    final fantasy x HD ps4When it comes to any news about Final Fantasy, there are often a lot of mixed feelings. Whilst there are certain games in the franchise that many gamers have come to despite, there are also timeless classics that everybody adores, and one such game is going to be getting a new HD treatment in anticipation for a PlayStation 4 launch.

    The game in question is Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD, and whilst this game has already had an HD remaster for the PS Vita and the PlayStation 3, it will be the first time this game has been ported over to the newest Sony console.

    Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD will be launched for the PlayStation 4 and it will be made available both from the PlayStation network and from within select brick and mortar retail stores early next year.

    It is expected that the new HD remaster won't have many improvements over the previously released PS3 and PS Vita versions, although there may be some unexpected surprises. We will have to wait for the launch to see what Square Enix have planned for the HD remaster of Final Fantasy X/X-2.

    Whilst many PS4 owners have been happy about the announcement of this particular remaster, Square Enix also announced that they have plans to bring Final Fantasy VII to the PlayStation 4 as well, and as expected, not so many players were happy about this one.

    Many players have stated that they would much prefer to see a remake of Final Fantasy VI instead of VII - what are your thoughts on this?

  • 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.

  • Street Fighter 5 Revealed as PS4 Exclusive

    Street Fighter 5Out of nowhere, Capcom has confirmed that Street Fighter 5 is in the works, but the most surprising bit of news from Capcom's announcement was it's decision to make Street Fighter 5 an exclusive for the PlayStation 4.

    The Street Fighter franchise has always been available on both Xbox and PlayStation, so it is odd to see Capcom suddenly move over to PlayStation 4 only. The only thing we can think of is Sony have managed to offer Capcom a payout they couldn't turn down, and as a result the game has been given PS4 exclusivity.

    Interestingly, Street Fighter 5 will also be made available for the PC, but it's console exclusivity remains on the PlayStation 4.

    A full gameplay reveal trailer for Street Fighter 5 was released by Capcom, but it has since been set to private - perhaps the development company and publisher isn't quite ready to reveal the game to the world just yet.

    Either way, we can expect to see some real gameplay of Street Fighter 5 fairly shortly, and perhaps in a year or two, we’ll also see the game land on the PlayStation 4 and the PC.

    Are you frustrated that Street Fighter 5 has been made exclusive to the PlayStation 4 and the PC, or is it something you could live with? Personally, we think this kind of deal will only fuel more third part exclusivity deals in the future, further pushing away from the boundaries of console parity.

  • 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.

  • 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."

  • 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.
