  • 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.

    Get ready for Advanced Warfare now with the Evil Controller's Master Mod available for Xbox One and Xbox 360! Check us out at www.evilcontrollers.com

  • 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.

  • French Retailer Suggests February Titanfall Beta Launch

    Titanfall beta launch february

    There's been talk about it, and after the successful closed alpha stage, I'm pretty sure Respawn Entertainment would be happy to release a beta for upcoming FPS Titanfall. New information from a French retailer suggests that there will be a Titanfall Beta, and it could be available as early as next month.

    Posters have been shared in the stores of French retailer Micromania that suggest the Beta will start on February 14th, just in time to give you an excuse for forgetting all about Valentines day. According to the French poster, the beta will run through to February 19th, and it will be exclusive to those who pre-order through Micromania.

    As Micromania is in fact a child company of GameStop, it would make sense that once again GameStop has bagged the goodies for the next big shooter game, and beta exclusivity may be for those who pre-order from GameStop or Micromania.

    Seeing as February 14th isn't really that far off, I expect there will be an official announcement for this information by next week. If not, it's likely this was a slip up on Micromania's behalf, and we may need to wait a little longer, and that's if a beta for Titanfall actually ever comes out.

    It's likely the supposed beta will mainly be for server testing purposes, and it's probable that the game has already been balanced out and tweaked for it's launch later this quarter on March 11.

  • TitanFall Alpha Extended, Users Upload Clips Under NDA

    TitanFall Alpha NDA

    Although Respawn Entertainment aren't yet sure on the status of a Beta for their upcoming FPS game TitanFall, an Alpha has been going on for the last few days, and a lot of players that have managed to get into the closed alpha are very impressed with the game so far.

    It seems Respawn has loved the positive response to their game so much that they decided to extended the closed alpha to Monday, and whilst most players kept their lips sealed whilst under the NDA that prohibits the recording of alpha gameplay footage, like pretty much every public closed alpha or beta out there, some bad eggs decided to break the rules and record footage anyway, and then upload it to the internet.

    What this means for us is that we get to have sneak peak of the game before it's full release. We get to see unscripted, real, live bug-filled alpha gameplay in all of it's glory, and as expected, it's looking pretty amazing.

    One thing I do have gripes with though is the AI performance - from what I've seen the most common AI, the grunts, are absolutely incapable of landing a kill on you. Instead, they crouch there, occasionally spraying bullets into your back before you have enough time to finish what you’re doing, turn around, and kill them within seconds.

    Respawn has said that the grunts will most likely stay this way, but I'm not sure if many players will be happy with this. Hopefully balancing will be done upon release.

  • 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 is Not by Bethesda

    Fallout 4 Fake Teaser

    Last week the internet was taken by storm by the new survivor2299 website- a place that claimed to be some kind of hint at a new Fallout 4 game. Since Bethesda didn't make any comment on whether the website was official or not, a lot of Fallout fans jumped to the belief that the website was the real deal.

    However, this week the creator of the website revealed on Reddit that the Survivor2299 website was in fact a hoax under his username DCHoaxer. He also said that he spent close to $900 on 15TB worth of hosting costs and the phone number he used on the website.

    It was revealed that he did this to try and force Bethesda to make a real announcement about Fallout 4 in time for the Spike VGX.

    Unfortunately this was not the case, but it did force them to come out and say that the website was indeed fake. It's surprising that it took them this long to respond to all of the internet chatter about the website, but perhaps it's because they are too busy working on other projects.

    After all of the rumors that we have heard about the game, it is likely at this point that Bethesda is working on Fallout 4, but it looks as if they are not yet ready to talk about such things. We'll keep you updated if any real news hits about Fallout 4 any time soon.

  • 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.
