  • Advanced Warfare Will Get a Few Fixes Soon

    advanced warfare lagNoticed any problems in Advanced Warfare yet? If you haven’t then you are incredibly lucky. Many players have complained about various issues with the game, from bad hit detection and terrible lag, to a lack of dedicated servers and progress-ruining prestige bugs.

    Luckily, Sledgehammer Games are on the ball to make sure things get fixed as quickly as possible. At this current point in time, they already have a fair amount of fixes on their to-do list, and they should be patched to the game over the next few weeks.

    Firstly, the lack of double XP monitoring will soon be fixed so players can see how much of an impact the double XP is actually making to their levels in-game. Secondly, a few of the mechanics, including speed reloading, will be improved. On top of this, Sledgehammer will be making some adjustments to the camo unlock requirements for different weapons.

    We should also see a range of new improvements and bug fixes on top of the ones mentioned above, including the ever-so-annoying emblem reset bug that happens after a player chooses to prestige.

    It is great to see that Sledgehammer are working actively to get their game fixed, but it is a bit of a shame that these problems were present at launch in the first place.

    Have you managed to play Advanced Warfare much yet? What are your thoughts on the new game, and will you continue to play amongst all of the current problems?

  • Advanced Warfare Gets Early Launch Lag Issues

    advanced warfare bug patchLike many games in the franchise before it, the launch of Advanced Warfare has been filled with complaints from angry players who just can't play through the game without dealing with some kind of lag.

    Whilst Sledgehammer Games are working round the clock to iron out all of the issues that currently plague AW, there's no doubt that the game is less enjoyable than it should be right now because of all the problems. We have listed the most complained about issues below.

    Bad Hit Detection

    This seems to be a problem that is directly correlated with the issue listed below. Bad hit detection in Advanced Warfare will make it difficult for players to land hits at some points in the game, especially when the host of the server has a particularly bad connection.

    This is something Sledgehammer are working on, but it may be a few weeks before the hit detection problems are solved.

    No Dedicated Servers

    It seems all developers are opting for dedicated servers on their online games now, but Activision is still a little behind with Call of Duty. So far, Advanced Warfare is on a peer-to-peer network, which means you will be matchmade into a game that is hosted by another player. This will cause all sorts of connection issues, but Sledgehammer have promised dedicated servers in the future.

    Frame Lag, Especially at Game Start

    This seems to be an issue that is largely present on PC, but some console players have complained about it as well. Frame lag seems to be a current issue, especially at the start of a new multiplayer game.

    Sledgehammer should be working on this shortly, but it's not definite that they will be able to fix the problem completely.

  • Halo CE 1080P Trailer Shows Off OP Pistol

    Back in the golden days of Halo Combat Evolved, the pistol was the gun to use. Yes, snipers and rocket launchers were fought for, but the overwhelming power of the pistol made it a force to be reckoned with at all times.

    A new gameplay trailer showing off the Master Chief Collection in full 1080P had a selection of Combat Evolved multiplayer, and we couldn't help but notice just how over-powered the pistol seemed to be in the gameplay shown.

    When compared to pistols of many modern shooters to today, the magnum in Halo CE was just undeniably amazing, and we're happy to see that 343 haven’t made any changes to it on the Combat Evolved portion of the Halo Master Chief Collection multiplayer.

    Another interesting thing to take from the latest trailer is that there are now achievements in all games - gameplay clearly shows players earning achievements whilst playing on CE maps, which suggests that the game has had a slight overhaul, and I must say, it looks oh-so satisfying to get a set of pistol kills in Combat Evolved.

    Halo The Master Chief Collection is set for release next month. The full release is November 14th.

    Are you going to be purchasing Halo: The Master Chief Collection? So far, all of the Halo fans I have talked to have been very excited about the Master Chief Collection, and I must admit, I’m looking forward to giving it a go myself, too.

  • Far Cry 4 Trailer for Kyrat Edition Released

    far cry 4 kryat editionFar Cry 4 is getting a pretty spectacular special edition release, and Ubisoft were so proud of it that they have recently released a brand new trailer showing off the limited edition copy of the game.

    The Far Cry 4 "Kyrat" Edition will be reserved for a limited number of people after launch, encouraging players to pre-order it now, and the latest video from Ubisoft shows off what the special edition of the game has to offer.

    The Far Cry 4 Kyrat edition will come with a range of digital and physical bonuses. As far as digital content is concerned, players who purchase the Kyrat edition will be given three extra missions, each of which have been revealed to be around 20 minutes long, and an exclusive weapon.

    The physical elements of the Far Cry 4 Kyrat edition includes a 20cm figurine of the main antagonist of the game, Pagan Min, as well as a travel journal, a map of the game world, a Pagan Min propaganda poster and a collector's edition box for the game.

    It all does sound pretty cool, but the limited Far Cray 4 Kyrat edition will set you back $129.99. Here's a summary of the contents.

    1. A 20 cm figurine of the game's villain Pagan Min seated on an elephant throne
    2. A travel journal
    3. Pagan Min Propaganda Poster
    4. The game Map
    5. An exclusive Collector Box

    8. Mission 3 (20 mins): In this epic finale, chase down an enemy convoy and save Hurk from certain death.

  • Battlefield Hardline 'Hotwire' Trailer Shows New Game Mode

    hardline hotwire modeA brand new trailer for EA's, DICE's and Visceral Game's upcoming Battlefield Hardline shows off a brand new unannounced game mode called Hotwire.

    In the new trailer, the Hotwire game mode is explained as a cops n' criminals themed car chase that gives criminals the opportunity to steal numerous marked cars within a level. The cops, in response, must try to recover the marked cars.

    Players in the passenger seat of the marked vehicles will be able to shoot at others whilst the driver is controlling the vehicle, so I expect Hotwire will end up being quite chaotic.

    The trailer honestly makes Hotwire look like a fast paced enjoyable game mode that takes a fresh approach on the typical FPS game modes already seen within the game. However, whilst Hotwire is explained as a game mode with 'high speed chases' I doubt it will turn out to be anything like a race from Need for Speed, and sounds more like a vehicle control gametype similar to party modes we've already seen in games like Halo.

    Whether or not Hotwire will translate as well in the real world as the trailer is portrayed is yet to be seen, but we will soon be able to find out because Battlefield Hardline has been set for a release early next year for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC.

    What are your thoughts on the new Hotwire mode for Battlefield Hardline?

  • Destiny Free Last-Gen Promotion Revealed

    destiny last gen upgrade - CopyIt has been revealed that Bungie plan to provide a promotion to make it easier for those who own both a new and an old gen console.

    In simple terms, players who purchase either the Xbox 360 version or the PlayStation version of Destiny will be able to upgrade to a new console in the future at no cost. Many developers have provided discounted 'upgrade' promotions that usually allow a player to purchase a PS4 or Xbox One copy of a game for a discounted price, as long as they own the same game for either the PS3 or Xbox 360 respectively. This is the first time a developer has offered a game upgrade for free, which is pretty awesome.

    There are a few rules to the free Destiny promotion - firstly, players must choose to upgrade before January 2015, as the promotion will end after this period, and secondly, players will only be given a digital version of the game to download from either the Xbox Games store or the PSN marketplace.

    Players will also only be able to use the promotion within the same console family. For example, PS3 players will only be able to grab a free version for the PS4, and Xbox 360 players will only be able to grab a free version for the Xbox One.

    Finally, players who upgrade will be able to carry their stats over to their new console as long as they use the same gamer profile for both consoles.

  • Third Person Option Coming to Advanced Warfare After Release

    advanced warfare third personThis won't be the first time, but recent news reveals that the upcoming Call of Duty game, Advanced Warfare, will have a selection of third person modes for the multiplayer portion of the game which will release some time after the game officially launches worldwide.

    Sledgehammer Games have put quite a lot of effort into renewing the multiplayer experience of the Call of Duty franchise in Advanced Warfare, and what we've learned so far is that Sledgehammer will offer a range of new mechanics to make the game feel fresh, but the experience will still be recognized by Call of Duty fans across the globe.

    On top of putting effort into new gameplay mechanics, Sledgehammer are thinking hard about the various multiplayer playlists available. It's already been revealed that the game will have a set of standard playlists, and a set of traditional non-exo suit playlists too. On top of this, it's now looking likely that Advanced Warfare will also get a third person playlist at some point after the game's release.

    This news is quite exciting; I've always been a fan of the third person modes for previous Call of Duty games, and it gives players a new take on the online gameplay. The only trouble is that as the game ages, it may be hard to find players within each sub-playlist. There is already the standard playlist and the traditional playlists, and if they add third person playlists there will be three separate areas that fragment the online player capacity.

  • Is Call of Duty World at War 2 Coming?

    cod world at war 2Right now, everyone who may be slightly interested in Call of Duty will be keeping their main attention on Advanced Warfare, however it's pretty likely that both Infinity Ward and Treyarch are working behind the scenes to create the next upcoming Call of Duty titles, after Advanced Warfare.

    Advanced Warfare looks to change up quite a lot in the Call of Duty franchise, but for those that aren't too happy about the changes, and would rather take it old school, you may be interested in the following information.

    Apparently, Amazon slipped up and momentarily leaked a brand new cover image for Call of Duty World at War 2. Whilst this information can't be verified, it's certainly clear that Treyarch will be returning in 2015 with a new Call of Duty game, and it could be very possible that World at War 2 will be the next game in the series, after Advanced Warfare.

    If this is the case, the 2015 Call of Duty game will be the first title to go back to the past, instead of focusing on present day or future scenarios. I think that a lot of fans will appreciate a World at War 2, as it's been a long time since we've seen a decent WW2 based shooter.

    Right now, all PR will be focused on Advanced Warfare, so we probably won't hear anything about World at War till after AW has been released.

  • Space Hulk: DeathWing Set to Be Warhammer 40K FPS Game

    space hulk deathwingGame developer Streum on Studio have just announced a brand new title with Games Workshops' Warhammer 40K universe, and from it's first reveal, things are looking pretty interesting. It’s certainly not the first time a Space Hulk game was announced, but it may be the first time a lot of people start to get truly excited. We've already seen many Warhammer adaptations, but none have quite been as action packed as we could have hoped.

    Warhammer Space Marine 40K was probably the first title that shared the potential a set of well-developed Warhammer games could have on the industry, so this new announcement by Streum on Studio for a brand new Warhammer game is very good to hear.

    The new Warhammer game has been named Space Hulk: DeathWing, and unlike other adaptations of the well known Warhammer board game, DeathWing will be an action packed first person shooter experience, and it is headed for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

    In Space Hulk, players take control of a group of heavily armored Space Marines who adventure onto a space hulk, a word used to describe a huge collection of wrecked ships, asteroids and other space debris. These space hulks are usually crawling with Tyranid, a race of devouring space aliens.

    It sounds like a pretty good premise for a game, and hopefully we'll hear more about DeathWing leading up to it's planned 2015 release date.

  • 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.
