  • 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.

  • Minecraft PS3 Set for Release this week

    Minecraft PS3 ReleaseDespite being out on the Xbox 360 since last year, no other ports have reached the market, apart for the pocket edition version for Android and iOS devices. However, that is about to change as it has been confirmed that 4J Studios, the team behind the console ports, has finally finished with the PS3 version and it is planned for a release this week.

     

    On Tuesday, 17th December, Minecraft for PlayStation 3 will be available as a digital download on the PlayStation store. The Minecraft Xbox 360 version is available for around $20, so it's likely the price of the PlayStation 3 version will be similar, however we won't be able to find out until it's release day tomorrow.

     

    Although it has taken 4J Studios a long time to port the Xbox version over to the PS3, the PlayStation version won't be missing out on any game content, and will include all of the features in the latest patch on the Xbox 360 version.

     

    The PS3 game will come with no extra skins or texture pack DLCs, but these will be added later on in 2014.

     

    The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 ports were also planned for a late 2013 release, however they have since been delayed and will now only make it to consoles some time in 2014, along with the extra PS3 DLC content.

     

    4J Studios also have plans for improving upon the current gameplay experience for the console port, however they won’t be working on new updates for the consoles until all console versions are out, so TU14 for Xbox 360 has since been delayed.

  • New Dying Light Video Shows 1080P PS4 Gameplay

    Dying Light Footage

    It looks like the developers of the Dead Island series aren't quite done with Zombie games just yet. A new gameplay video shows Dying Light, the new zombie title under development by Techland running smoothly at 1080P on the PlayStation 4.

    The video was shown at the VGX Awards and focuses on three main pillars of the core game experience; melee combat, parkour and zombie damage.

    The idea behind the game is to refresh the now worn out zombie survival genre by adding parkour elements into the game. At first I was a little curious about how Techland plan to pull this off successfully, but I was quite surprised at how smooth the gameplay experience went from parkour to zombie slashing action.

    Along with the parkour mechanics, Techland have introduced a bunch of parkour-like combat actions that allow you to improvise with the environment and use hand-to-hand techniques to take on the zombies.

    Whilst the zombies will be a threat at day time, they will become much more hostile and aggressive at night time, which forces the players to plan out their missions and finish off task quickly to avoid the in-game day/night system leaving them to the relentless zombie hordes.

    Dying Light has been set to release some time in 2014 and will be published by Warner Bros. Studios for next gen consoles, current gen consoles and the PC - we'll keep you up to date on any new footage or release information that might be announced before then.

  • Fallout 4 "Teaser Website" Pops Up

    Fallout 4 teaser website

    If Fallout 4 doesn't ever make it to reality, I think we are all going to be severely disappointed. The game's series really took a great turn with Fallout 3, and since then I've always considered Bethesda one of the greatest games developers of all time, simply for the fact that they are always ambitious when tackling huge tasks like Fallout or the Elder Scrolls.

    We've all been anxiously awaiting a confirmation from Bethesda about Fallout 4 - A simple yes or no at this point would be nice, but since we haven't had that yet, we've resorted to scouring the internet for anything that could resemble a confirmation that Fallout 4 is actually coming.

    A new result of such internet scouring has led to the discovery of the website - thesurvivor2299.com

    The website contains morse code, cryptic text and a countdown. Unfortunately there's no confirmation on whether this is actually from Bethesda or from a Fallout fan with a little too much time on their hands, but at this point in time it seems like everyone expects it to be the real deal, despite the strange timing. (The countdown ends just four days after Spike.TV's Spike VGX)

    Hopefully this is a little teaser from Bethesda though. Since the release of the website, fans have attempted to crack the code, and have unearthed bits of information, including references to Boston, the city that Fallout 4 has rumored to be set in.

  • Gears of War Could Come to Xbox One

    Along with Halo, Gears of War is one of the most popular Xbox exclusive franchises that help to paint a picture of the Xbox gaming experience for most gamers, and Microsoft seem to like the idea of having the Gears of War franchise continue on the Xbox One.

    In September, Microsoft Game Studios Vice President Phil Spencer was asked whether Gears of War would make a return on the Xbox One. His answer was a short, "Ask Epic."

    Phil has since been interviewed by IGN, and he has delved deeper into the possibilities of a Gears of War game on the Xbox One.

    Phil said, "I want to find a great Gears game, and I thought we did a good job with Judgment but I don't think it hit the level of quality we saw in the previous games."

    He continued by saying "I think review scores showed that, sales showed that, and I really think that we need to take a step back with Epic and think about - I don't want to call it a reboot, because it's kind of an overused term - but think about where that franchise goes and how to expand what it was."

    Along with many other gamers, I'd love to see a new Gears of War title hit the Xbox One, but it is true that Judgment didn't deliver to the standard we had expected, and to really make Gears of War special again it would take months of careful thinking, planning and game development.

    Even then there's no guarantee that Epic Games can continue the Gears of War legacy successfully. Despite selling well, franchises like Call of Duty clearly show that after a while, gamers get bored of the same thing, and the love we once had for a certain game or series of games dies out.

  • Rockstar Working on next 'Version of a Famous IP'

    A bit of information found on a Rockstar New England staff's LinkedIn page has given us a little insight into what another development team belonging to Rockstar could be working on at this very moment in time.

    Found on the LinkedIn page was the information stating that the Rockstar developer is currently working on "the next version of a famous IP," however other than this, no details are shared on the LinkedIn page.

    Luckily though, with a little bit of digging around, we may be able to get more of an idea of what game Rockstar New England could be working on.

    The first thing to take notice of is that the LinkedIn page said "next version of a famous IP" meaning it has to be a follow-up to an already released game or game series, and it has to be a popular one too, but seeing as this is Rockstar we're talking about, it's pretty hard to determine what isn't considered a popular Rockstar IP.

    Rockstar New England has previously worked on a few different games, but they are best known for their work on Bully: Scholarship Edition.

    Members of Rockstar have already mentioned that a sequel to the Bully series would be a good step to take next, so it seems probable that the new game would be a new Bully game.

    It is possible that it could be something completely different though- another Max Payne game, or even a Red Dead sequel.

    Seeing as this is Rockstar New England working on development though, it's unlikely to be anything major unless more development studios are involved.

  • PlayStation 4 PlayRoom Shows Next Gen Potential

    Sony has shown off a few things at this year's Tokyo Game Show, but one of the more interesting things is the PlayStation 4 PlayRoom, a fun little gimmick that shows off the capabilities of motion capture, facial recognition and other technology related to the PlayStation Eye.

    Simply put, the PlayStation 4's PlayRoom is a collection of features that showcase concepts and technologies of the PlayStation Eye, almost as if to say "We don't really have a use for it yet, but it's still a good piece of tech so come back when we have something really cool to show you."

    To be honest though, the PlayRoom is pretty cool, even if it is just a toy or a gimmick.

    Players will be able to interact with the PlayRoom by moving the controller, pressing buttons and moving themselves in front of the camera.

    The PlayRoom will then show off all kinds of cool futuristic images and interactive scenarios on-screen.

    You'll be able to do a few things such as play air hockey, or kick around small little creatures that according to the PlayRoom live inside your DualShock 4 controller. I'm sure the PlayRoom will be a blast for kids, and enough to make you go "ooh, that's pretty cool."

    Sony plan to add DLC to the PlayRoom in the future, and it will be readily available to use for free on every PlayStation 4 at launch.

  • GTA Online - 32 or 16 Players?

    A bit of confusion has hit the internet this week. Dozens of video games websites have reported that GTA Online may have 32 player support instead of the previously announced 16 players, thanks to the help of a bunch of friendly hackers who sifted through GTA V's code to find information on a 32 player cap for online play.

    The bad news is that Rockstar has dismissed this as just a rumor, and have then confirmed on twitter that the cap will be only 16 players.

    @RockstarGames said "Not sure where that rumor came from but GTA Online will support 16 players."

    This leaves open the possibilities for 32 player game modes outside of GTA Online that players may have to queue up to join through virtual lobbies. Perhaps we will see 32 player deathmatches or something similar. This is of course just speculation and does go against what Rockstar have already stated.

    Other news that has circulated due to players messing around with GTA V's files includes PS4 and PC framework code, so perhaps Rockstar plan on releasing the game for both next gen consoles and the PC in the future.
