  • Mass Effect 4 Will Feature "Emotionally Believable Characters"

    mass effect 4Let's be honest, any open world game by Bioware is always going to look nice when compared to other titles released around the same time. Mass Effect 4 should be no different, and thanks to a new job listing on Bioware's website, we can get a better idea about what kind of direction Bioware will want artists to go in the upcoming Mass Effect.

    In a latest job listing, Bioware are looking for a member to join their team that can specifically create "emotionally believable characters that allow game players to interact with the game, whether photorealistic or stylized, in a realistic and believable fashion."

    The depth of story involved in the Mass Effect franchise has always been impressive, and being able to capture and create characters that really show believable emotion will be a great way to improve the story depth and detail of characters in Mass Effect 4.

    If Bioware manage to create a game that is both highly engaging as a fun game, and as a intense, emotional driven story, I think Mass Effect could potentially be the best game in the franchise yet.

    That is a big if though - so far we have seen very little content showing off what Mass Effect 4 will be like, and most of the details of the game have been kept incredibly quiet. In fact, we aren't even sure if the game will definitely be called Mass Effect 4 or not.

  • 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.

  • "No One is Gonna be Disappointed" with Forza 6, Coming this Holiday Season

    forza 6 release"No one is gonna be disappointed" is the exact words you’d expect to hear from a marketing manager, and it's exactly what XBOX EMEA social marketing manager Graeme Boyd said in a recent podcast over at Rectify Gaming in reference to Forza Motorsport 6. However, I think we do have enough reason to believe him.

    Whist Boyd wasn't kind enough to give up a release date for Forza 6, he did mention that "There will be lots of Forza news to come, and Turn 10 in particular is good at communicating with the community when they have stuff to talk about."

    Hopefully this means that leading up to the release of Forza 6, we'll see a lot of great content, including gameplay reveals, juicy high-res screenshots and more for us to feast our eyes upon. Even though Boyd did not mention a planned release date, in another podcast, Aaron Greenberg did list Forza among a variety of games that will be making it's way to the Xbox One this holiday season.

    It's certainly true that Xbox has a great lineup planned this year, and I absolutely cannot wait for some of the game expos, such as E3 to kick off so that we can get a great first hands look into what is to come from Xbox, and in particular, Xbox One this year.

    Forza Motorsport 5 was great. but I think Forza 6 will be better by a wide margin. Turn 10 have had a lot of spare time to work on the title since the launch of the Xbox One.

  • New Mass Effect Will Have Some Online Components

    new mass effect onlineSo far, we know very little about the new Mass Effect game, but Bioware are slowly revealing bits of information about it. Although we have nothing to use to paint ourselves a picture of Mass Effect 4, we do have some details to go on.

    Recently, senior development director of Mass Effect 4, Chris Wynn, sent out a tweet, giving Mass Effect fans another very small piece of the Mass Effect 4 puzzle. In Wynn's tweet, it read "Things are getting real now and I need an excellent producer to come shape online for the next Mass Effect."

    Whilst he didn't straight up state that Mass Effect 4 will be getting some form of online play, asking for a producer for online pretty much confirms we will be getting some kind of online component in Mass Effect 4.

    Because we know so little about the upcoming Mass Effect game, we really don't have anything to suggest here. It could be possible that there could be some kind of multiplayer gameplay separate from the main story. Alternatively, we could see some kind of multiplayer drop-in features for the game's main story mode.

    What is clear is that multiplayer won't play a critical part of Mass Effect 4 - if that were the case it's likely Bioware would already have the producer they needed. So if you were hoping for a Mass Effect MMO you may be disappointed. However, let's hope something good does come from the new online producer for Bioware.

  • Killzone Devs Teasing Something New

    new killzone soonA brand new image has been posted to the Killzone twitter, suggesting that something will be coming "soon." Despite how vague this information is, it’s pretty clear that whatever that something is, it will be big.

    We can only speculate at this point in time - despite the announcement on the Twitter page, we have heard very little from within the Guerilla Games studio. No rumors have been spread in relation to Killzone over the last few months, so once again, we’re pretty short for answers.

    Some Killzone players are suggesting that the new announcement may be somewhat related to the PS Vita game, named Killzone Mercenary. Mercenary was released in 2013, so it's completely possible that the game could be receiving a timely update.

    Alternatively, there could be a completely new Killzone game for the PS Vita. Considering the 2 year gap since the last PS Vita title, it's not unreasonable to think Guerilla Games may completely scrap Mercenary to work on something completely new.

    It's completely possible that the new something may have nothing to do with the PS Vita whatsoever. A brand new Killzone game isn't entirely out of the question, although we expect we'll be more likely to see some kind of content patch for the game.

    Guerilla Games have already made a lot of changes to the base game of Killzone Shadow Fall, so seeing more changes would not be surprising at this point.

    Unfortunately, we can't really make any guesses past what we've shared here. We'll just have to be patient and see what comes in the near future.

  • Metal Gear Solid World Rumored to be Bigger than GTA V

    metal gear solid v world sizeSo, you may have heard a few times now that the world size in Metal Gear Solid V will be large, but a new analysis of the released map photos suggests that The Phantom Pain might just have a world that is larger than that of Grand Theft Auto V.

    In the new analysis by a NeoGAF user, screenshots of the in-game map shows off the size of the playable area, compared to the whole map size. Roughly speaking, the map in the Phantom Pain looks to be around 120 to 150 times the playable size of Ground zeroes, according to the NeoGAF user.

    With this information, the user calculated that it would take roughly 3 minutes to drive from one side of the map to the other. Whilst it takes roughly double this to travel across GTA V, the map in question only shows off Africa. Afghanistan is another area in Metal Gear Solid V that has been confirmed, and should roughly be the same size of Africa.

    Obviously a lot of the world in MGSV will be open desert land, so it won't feel engaging throughout the entirety of the map like Grand Theft Auto V does, but the travel times between mission areas will certainly be interesting.

    I can't wait to see how the developers of the Phantom Pain put all of the open space in their world to use. Are you excited to see what Africa and Afghanistan are like in Metal Gear Solid V?

  • The Order 1866 Should Last You Close to Six Hours

    The Order 1866Despite not actually being out yet, some players have already completed The Order 1866, and a selection of those that have completed the game have shared their experiences online. One player, who posted his entire playthrough online, managed to complete The Order 1866 in around five hours and a half.

    The 5 hour playthrough followed the player as he completed the main story, whilst neglecting a lot of side missions and extra playable content. Going from this information, we can make a pretty accurate estimate that if you pick up The Order 1866, it's going to take you at least five and a half hours to complete, and that's if you skip everything you possibly can. It's also important to understand that the gamer in question managed to get through without dying a single time.

    Despite only lasting five and a half hours, the player described that the story-driven singleplayer in The Order: 1866 felt like it lasted a lot longer. This could partially be down to the fact that the story in The Order: 1866 is expected to be a lot more engaging than the typical game.

    Other players have reported that their experience of The Order 1866 has lasted a lot longer, with the typical completion time sitting between seven and nine hours. In fact, the first player to pick up the platinum trophy from The Order 1866 took around nine hours on his first playthrough.

    With recent rumors of The Order 1866 only lasting 3 hours, it's great to see that the game actually has a lot more content in it, and I'd be happy to spend seven or eight hours completing the game in my own pace.

  • New Screenshots of Batman: Arkham Knight shown

    batman arkham knight screenshotsThe next Batman game is called Batman: Arkham Knight, and it is currently looking very, very, interesting. Whilst Warner Bros didn't do such a good job with Batman Arkham Origins, Rocksteady games are looking to redeem the series.

    They did a great job with the previous Batman games, so I'm pretty sure they are going to go out with a bang with Batman: Arkham Knight, or at least that's what I am hoping.

    So far, we know that Batman Arkham Knight will feature Scarecrow. A cinematic trailer was released earlier this year that showed off the Batman fighting crime in Gotham City. In the trailer, Scarecrow threatened to cover the city in his infamous fear toxin. As a result, the city gets abandoned, and it's left for the baddies to patrol.

    Batman Arkham Knight may be the most open world game yet, and will feature a large variety of different Batman villains, although the main focus will be on Scarecrow this time round.

    New screens of Batman Arkham Knight were shared this week, and they look absolutely stunning. The amount of detail on these images is insane, and we can only hope that the game will feature graphics anywhere near the quality of these screenshots.

    Batman Arkham Knight has been set for release on October 14th this year. The game will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and the PC upon it's release in October. Will you be picking up Rocksteady's next Batman game?

  • Borderlands 3 Is Next Gearbox Game

    next gearbox gameWe talked a little bit about the next Gearbox game last week, but back then, all we knew about it was that it was going to be a new game within the Borderlands IP. We still know very few details about the game, but we do now know a title, (or a subtitle at least) as well as a bit more information.

    The next borderlands has been named as Borderlands 3, so it should continue directly from where the other two left off, instead of branching off into a different direction like Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel did.

    Another very interesting piece of information shared by Gearbox recently is that Borderlands 3 will not be making it's way to any other consoles other than current gen. We do expect it will be released for PC, but besides from that, only PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players will be able to get their hands on the next Gearbox game.

    This is an understandable move - the hardware in older consoles are likely to just keep the development and potential of the game to a bare minimum, and if Borderlands 3 is going to be the "big one" like Randy Pitchford previously suggested, then we are going to need as much console power as we can get.

    So far, we have no idea about a release date for Borderlands 3, although it's unlikely to be released at any point this year.

    Are you looking forwards to Borderlands 3, or are you going to pass?
