  • Next Mass Effect Game 'Years Away'

    next mass effect gameWhilst members from BioWare have mentioned quite a lot about the future of the Mass Effect series since the last game was released, it's unlikely that we'll see the next Mass Effect game any time soon.

    In fact, according to the game producer for the Mass Effect franchise, Mike Gamble, the next Mass Effect game is 'years away' from completion, which means that we probably won't be seeing anything solid about Mass Effect 4 for quite a while, and it's final release may be stretched out to 2017, or perhaps even further.

    Mike Gamble revealed this information at a session at this year's San Diego Comic-Con, along with some other details on the next Mass Effect Game.

    Firstly, according to Gamble, it's likely that the Mako, a rough-terrain vehicle seen in the first two games, will most likely make a return to the fourth title in the Mass Effect series, and players may also get to see some familiar faces from previous games.

    It is important to note that the new Mass Effect game will not focus on Commander Shepard or any of the other character's within Shepard's crew, however previous characters from the franchise may appear as cameos.

    In the past, BioWare talked about potential plans to turn the fourth Mass Effect game into something completely different to the first three, however at this point I'm really not sure what that could be, although we do know there will be a large focus on exploration in the next Mass Effect game.

  • Oddworld New N' Tasty Released This Week on PS4

    oddworld remake hdIt's been a while since the remake was announced, but Oddworld New N' Tasty, a revised HD version of the 1997 PlayStation One classic Abe's Oddysee has finally been released on the PlayStation 4 this week.

    Oddworld New N' Tasty has been in development for a fair amount of time now, and despite previously being rumored to be a launch window game for the PlayStation 4, it's only till now that the game has been released.

    Oddworld New N' Tasty is a 2D platformer with a very dark story and background that follows the character of Abe, a slave working at a RuptureFarms meat factory. Abe ends up learning RuptureFarms plans to use Abe and his fellow slave workers as meat for the factory, and the story then follows his attempts to break himself and the other slaves free.

    Whilst Oddworld New N' Tasty has only just been released for the PlayStation 4 this week, the HD remake will also make it to other consoles shortly, including the Wii U, the Xbox One, PC, and Mac.

    Interestingly, if players purchase New N' Tasty within two weeks of it's release, they will be rewarded with an exclusive Abe costume. PS Plus subscribers will also be given access to a brand new level, named Alf's Escape.

    Whilst Oddworld New N' Tasty has already released for the PlayStation 4, the release date for other consoles has not yet been revealed, although we'll probably hear more about it shortly.

  • Cliffy B Goes Back Into Video Game Development

    Cliffy B New GameA little while back Cliff Bleszinski announced plans to retire from video game development for good, but it seems he just couldn't keep away from the video game industry as he's already back at it with plans to make more video games again.

    Despite his supposed video game retirement, it's been clear for a while that Cliffy B has been working on some kind of video game project, and it looks like he plans to reveal it to the world pretty soon.

    On Bleszinski's twitter, he wrote, "I'm officially coming out of retirement to make video games again. Stay tuned here for details in the next 7 days!"

    Whilst his previous work has been alongside AAA studios responsible for franchises like Gears of War and Unreal Tournament, it sounds likely that Cliffy B's next project will be something completely different.

    Cliff Bleszinski has already revealed a few different concept art images for a game that he has codenamed Silverstreak, so perhaps we'll hear more about this title within the next 7 days like Cliff suggested on his Twitter account.

    In or out of retirement, it's clear Cliffy B will not have any input on the next Gears of War title, which is largely where he made a name for himself. Do you think Bleszinski's next game make much of a splash? We'll have to see exactly what Cliffy B has up his sleeve before we give an answer on that one.

  • Lionhead Currently Working on Brand New IP

    Lionhead new IPWhilst part of Lionhead is currently hard at work on the brand new multiplayer-centric Fable Legends, new information suggests that Peter Molyneux's ex game development studio will also be working on another project, completely separate from the Fable universe.

    According to Lionhead creative director Gary Carr, there is currently a team of eight working on trying to "build the next big IP." Carr mentioned that his team is throwing around a few prototypes, as well as planning a few games that could be added to the Fable Legends experience.

    Whilst it's probably going to be a while before we actually see any official progress by Lionhead on the new IP, they seem pretty confident about going forward. New studio head, John Needham recently mentioned that "The primary purpose of the group is to come up with new game IP, and hopefully this time next year we'll have something exciting to talk about," when asked about the new team of eight working within the Lionhead studio.

    Needham continued by talking about Lionhead's history, "There is great IP in Lionhead's history, it's just spotty who owns what. Clearly we're going to be investing most of the studio's efforts into Fable, but we'll have some new IP to share with you soon."

    I think it will be exciting to see what Lionhead have in store for us next. Even without Peter Molyneux at the helm of the ship, there's still a lot of potential for the British based development studio.

  • GameStop COD Advanced Warfare Pre-orders Come With DLC for Previous COD Titles

    Advanced Warfare Preorder bonusesGameStop is hosting a brand new promotion that rewards gamers for pre-ordering the new Call of Duty Advanced Warfare from their retail stores or their online website. If you choose to pre-order the new Call of Duty title through GameStop, you will be given a new personalization DLC pack that can be downloaded for both Black Ops 2 and Call of Duty Ghosts as soon as your pre-order goes through.

    The personalization pack offers a host of new Advanced Warfare themed cosmetic apparel, including a new weapon camo, a player patch, player card, a new reticle and a player background.

    None of this content provides any bonus to gameplay, and simply serves as an additional pack of personalization items, just as the name of the pack suggests. So far, it seems the only way to get ahold of this pack is by pre-ordering through GameStop.

    No other pre-order bonuses have been announced at this point, but it wouldn't be surprising if some kind of bonus for Advanced Warfare was announced at some point before it's release date.

    Call of Duty Advanced Warfare is the first COD title fully developed by Sledgehammer games, and it will be released in November this year for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. A separate development studio is working on a previous gen port for PS3 and Xbox 360. The new futuristic approach could help to refresh the series, but the same basic Call of Duty multiplayer experience is bound to make it into Advanced Warfare.

  • Call of Duty Advanced Warfare Announced

    COD Advanced WarfareThe next Call of Duty game that is planned for release this year has just been revealed, and so far it's looking pretty interesting. As we know at this point, the Call of Duty title for 2014 has been developed by a new developer, Sledgehammer Games, and they have been working on it for around 3 years now.

    The new Call of Duty title will focus on advanced future combat, and has been titled Advanced Warfare. In Advanced Warfare we can expect to see advanced weaponry, aircraft and drones, as well as a wide variety of other technical gear, including wearable exoskeletons that makes Call of Duty comparable with something out of Halo or Dead Space.

    Personally, I think this is a pretty interesting direction for Sledgehammer to take, but seeing as Black Ops has been touching on 'future combat' a little bit already, it isn't entirely surprising. Hopefully there will be enough new content to refresh the series a little.

    Another interesting thing about Advanced Warfare is that Kevin Spacey has been chosen to voice the bad guy, who can be heard in the Advanced Warfare reveal trailer. Whilst a lot of Call of Duty's popularity has branched off from the multiplayer experience, Sledgehammer Games seem pretty enthusiastic to offer a great singleplayer experience this time round.

    Sledgehammer will be focusing on just the PC, PS4 and Xbox One versions of the title, however another development studio will be working on a last gen version for the PS3 and Xbox 360.

  • Unreal Engine 4 Powered Thriller Coming to PS4

    without memory ps4From what we've seen the Unreal Engine 4 looks absolutely stunning. Unreal Engine 3 has been used for years, and despite now being many years old, games can still look beautiful and run ridiculously smoothly when built on the Unreal Engine.

    Hopefully the 4th rendition of Unreal Engine will be able to render even more life-like graphics whilst still staying smooth and easy on the eyes in terms of frame rate and overall performance.

    We'll probably see dozens of Unreal Engine 4 powered games in the near future, and a brand new one that has just popped up is a thriller title by the name of Without Memory. This particular title is being developed by a Russian development studio by the name of Dinosaurum Games, and it is planned for a release some time in 2016.

    In Without Memory, the player will follow the story of a girl who awoke in the middle of a forest without any prior memories, and according to Dinosaurum Games, this 'interactive thriller' will have tens of endings.

    It looks like Without Memory will offer a similar play experience to Quantic Dream's Beyond: Two Souls, however it's sounds like Dinosaurum Games will make sure the player feels as if their choices really matter, which is something that Beyond: Two Souls failed to capture.

    2016 is still quite far away though, but hopefully we will hear more about Without Memory fairly soon. Perhaps we'll even see some kind of cinematic reveal at this year's E3.

  • New Arkham Knight Game Will Have the Arkham Knight as The Villain

    arkham knight new villainSo far, every Batman game under RockSteady's wing has been Arkham something; Arkham Origins, Arkham Asylum, Arkham City, etc, and it's all led back to Batman. However, some new information reveals that despite our previous thoughts, the Arkham Knight isn't Batman at all.

    In fact, the Arkham Knight will be the main villain in the upcoming Batman game, and if you're a fan of the Arkham series, you'll agree with me when I say that this sounds absolutely exciting.

    However, the odd thing is, this will be the first time that RockSteady Studios change up the world of Batman so much that they introduce a completely new character unseen in the world of Batman before.

    This is obviously a big move for the franchise in general, especially considering that it's now many decades old, but if anyone were to bring a new villain to the world of Batman, I entrust RockSteady to do a pretty job at it.

    It seems the new villain has taken inspiration from Batman himself, and early images show the Arkham Knight wearing some sort of futuristic bat suit. I'm sure Batman won't be pleased that someone else there is impersonating him, and I'm sure it will create for some very interesting moments in the upcoming Batman Arkham game.

    As it stands, Batman Arkham Knight is set for release on October 14th, for the Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4, we'll probably see a lot more about the new villain, and the various other new mechanics of the new game leading up to it's release.

  • New Assassin's Creed Unity Game Officially Announced

    assassins creed unityIt's been pretty clear at this point that Ubisoft is eager to keep pushing out new Assassin's Creed games each year, however there hasn't been that much information on the next entry in the series. The last game, Assassins' Creed Black Flag saw a breath of fresh air into the series, and I'm hoping that the next game manages to be unique and original enough to keep things enjoyable.

    This week, after an image was leaked Ubisoft have confirmed that the next title for the Assassins' Creed series will be called Assassins' Creed: Unity.

    So far, not much is really know about the next upcoming game in the series, however it's likely that the title will be directed at current gen consoles, whilst the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 will get a different title instead.

    In a press release, Ubisoft stated that they have actually been working on the upcoming Assassin's' Creed game for more than three years. "We have been working on the new Assassin's Creed for more than three years and although we weren't quite ready to show you our full vision for a next-gen only AC, it seems Abstergo are trying to force our hand."

    The new Assassins' Creed game will have a new protagonist, and it could possibly be held in Paris. The game will come with an improvement in graphics and will most probably be out over the holiday season in Q4, in time for Christmas.

  • Tomb Raider and Dead Nation Part of March's PS Plus Instant Game Collection

    tomb raider free

    Sony have always been fairly generous with their PS Plus loyalty features, but the most appealing feature that has given many gamers a reason to subscribe is the access to the monthly PS Plus Instant Game Collection.

    The Instant Game Collection is a rotation of video games that players will be able to download for free each month. At the end of the month, a new set of games is put on the rota, and the other games are no longer available for those who hadn't already redeemed them.

    This month, the most recent Tomb Raider title will be put up for free for all US PlayStation Plus subscribers. The game will be the last gen version, and not the new definitive version. However, there certainly isn't any complaining to do, because Tomb Raider was a very amazing game that was released quite recently.

    For PlayStation 4 owners, players will be treated to Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition. These two games will be available for the first half of the month, whilst later in the month, Thomas Was Alone, Lone Survivor: Director's Cut, and Vita exclusives Unit 13 and Monster Hunter Freedom Unite will be put on the Instant Game Collection rota.

    Despite the PS Plus subscription working out as a monthly subscription, many gamers have got more than their money's worth out of the loyalty programs, and the Instant Game Collection alone proves to be a great way to save money on recently released titles.
