  • 100 Best Advanced Warfare Players Rewarded with Gold Armor

    advanced warfare grand master armorSledgehammer Games have just announced a brand new armor set for Call of Duty Advanced Warfare, but it will be limited to the very best players in the world.

    To get the newly announced armor, you will need to do more than just good. In fact, only the top 100 players in the world will be given access to it.

    The armor is a gold plated version of the bloodthirster armor, which can only be unlocked by receiving killstreaks within a multiplayer game. On top of earning the awesome gold plate armor set, the top 100 players will also be given the Grand Master name tag.

    Unfortunately, Sledgehammer Games have not revealed all of the details about this new armor yet, so we're unsure how the developer will rank the top 100 players. Whether or not it will be based on kill/death ratio, top played time, or simply the top 100 players in the global leaderboards, we're not sure, but we'll be sure to let you know as more details are revealed.

    As for the release date for the new Grand Master armor, once again we aren't sure, but we expect Sledgehammer Games will release more information about it fairly soon.

    What do you think about this new Grand Master armor? Do you think it is exciting that Sledgehammer are giving players an incentive to rank up in the leaderboards, and do you think they should offer lower tiered items for those who can't make it to the top 100?

  • White PS4 Standalone May Be Available This Month

    white ps4 standaloneTo celebrate the release of Destiny, most of Europe and the UK received a brand new PS4 bundle that included a copy of Destiny and a white PlayStation 4, along with a DualShock 4 controller.

    Now that the release of Destiny has long since gone, the white PS4 bundles have slowly died out, but Sony have seen demand for the product and have decided to make plans to release the white variant of the console as a standalone device.

    Shuhei Yoshida has revealed that the white PlayStation 4 will be released as a standalone product very soon, but unfortunately the console will be limited to Europe for now. As with the Destiny bundle, Yoshida failed to mention anything about a North American release for the white version.

    The white standalone PlayStation 4 will cost £350, which is slightly more than the current £329 street price of the PS4. Of course, if you're in the US and you really want a white PS4, you might have to pay considerably more to get it shipped over here.

    Besides from the color change, there are absolutely no differences between the white PS4 console and the black PS4 console, and hardware-wise everything is the same.

    Whether or not you like the white console will probably come down to preference, but it's a shame that only those in Europe or the UK will be given the option to choose between a white or a black PlayStation 4.

  • Quick Scoping will be Useless in Titanfall

    Call of Duty has brought the world a type of gamer that likes to impress, and whether you're the guy with 1337 360 NoScope skills, or the person getting frustrated on the other end of the barrel, by the time Titanfall is on your console, it's going to be a different story.

    no quick scoping titanfall

    A developer at Respawn Entertainment has spoke to the community about snipers, he started by stating that snipers will be an important part of Titanfall, but the nature of snipers in Titanfall is different to how they work in most modern military shooters, and the mechanics in Titanfall will make your COD snipers skills ineffective.

    "Sniping is in the game, but due to how the game plays it's a pretty different animal than you'll find in your run of the mill modern military shooter. Quick scoping and no scoping are ineffective."

    So far, no more details have been given on how snipers will work in Titanfall, but I can imagine that sniping will be rendered useless unless scoped in and remaining still, making snipers vulnerable targets whilst aiming for shots with their powerful weapons.

    I'm sure players will find a way to try and "cheat" the snipers in Titanfall, but no matter how you try to use your sniper in Titanfall, no scoping and quick scoping certainly won't be an overpowered tactic like it is in Call of Duty.

    Titanfall will be released exclusively to Xbox One and PC, and will be released on the 13th of March.

  • New Mass Effect Game Now in Playable State

    There's still no real information on what kind of game the new Mass Effect game will be, but BioWare general manager Aaryn Flynn revealed that the game is now in a "playable state" and it feels "fresh, but recognizable."

    It's already been confirmed that the new Mass Effect game won't be a direct sequel or prequel to the Commander Shephard series, and will instead focus on an entirely different story within the Mass Effect universe.

    In fact, Commander Shephard and his crew won't play any part in the new Mass Effect game at all, and the gameplay will be entirely different to what we remember from the first trilogy.

    Whilst this doesn't give much information about what kind of gameplay the new Mass Effect game will offer, it suggests that the game will offer a different gameplay experience to the action shooter RPG we've recognized in ME1, 2 and 3.

    This could mean we could end up with a Mass Effect golfing game for all we know, but it's much more likely to involve some kind of combat. Perhaps we'll end up with a team based shooter that has a larger focus on squad tactics.

    new mass effect game

    Or perhaps BioWare will go with the trends and turn the new Mass Effect game into an online multiplayer experience, an MMO? FPS deathmatch game? Who knows..

     

    We'll have to wait till BioWare releases more information about the upcoming title, unfortunately.

  • Will There Be a Titanfall Beta? - It's a Possibility

    Titanfall devs, Respawn Entertainment aren't quite sure whether there will be a Titanfall Beta or not yet, but they are certainly considering it at this point in time. Vince Zampella, co founder at Respawn confirmed that they are "definitely thinking about it" when asked about a possible Titanfall beta, however at this point in time it's unclear what kind of access would be available for such a thing.

    Titanfall Beta

    If a Beta does come about, it could be possible that it could be restricted to pre-orderers only, or it may end up being even stricter, but right now it's hard to speculate.

     

    I think that it would be best for Respawn Entertainment to release a Titanfall Beta because with the massive scale of most FPS games these days, it's rare that a FPS console game ever releases without bugs, exploits and issues on day one. A beta would help Titanfall to iron out gameplay kinks and focus on server stability.

    Vince Zampella also commented on Kinect integration by saying that it just "didn't fit the game," meaning that there won't be any added Kinect functionality to Titanfall, leaving players with just their trusty controller in their hand.

    Personally I cannot wait for Titanfall to release, and a Beta would definitely be a good way to give us a little sneak peak at what's to come in the full release.

    We'll keep you updated on any new information that comes out about the beta.

  • Ultra Realistic Project Cars Screenshots Shown

    Racing fans, you've got a real treat in-store this year. On top of the awe inspiring Drive Club, and the possibility of a new FlatOut game, you've now got the beautiful world of Project Cars to look forward to.

    New Project Cars Screenshots

    60 new screenshots have been released by Slightly Mad Studios, and they highlight the amazing graphical fidelity that will be found within Project Cars. If you thought Forza is good, then Slightly Mad Studios' Project Cars will definitely take your breath away.

    I'm sure Slightly Mad probably put a lot of effort into making sure these screenshots showed the absolute best of the game, however they have revealed that everything has been done in-game, meaning that all 60 screenshots were from real gameplay.

    "As usual, all shots show purely in-game footage that has not been made in any special photo mode, using no post-processing or filters that aren't available during the actual gameplay. What you see is what you experience while driving!"

    It's important to mention that all 60 screenshots were taken from the PC version of the game, so it will be interesting to see what the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions look like.

    Slightly Mad Studios have had experience with other racing games such as Need for Speed: Shift and Shift 2: Unleashed in the past, so I expect that on top of the great graphics, the game will turn out to be pretty fun, too.

    Project Cars is set for a full release on Xbox One, PS4, Wii U, PC and Steam OS late 2014.

  • Prologue Trailer for Capcom's F2P Deep Down Released

    A new prologue trailer has been released for Capcom's upcoming next gen free to play title, Deep Down. The trailer depicts what looks to be two players fighting monsters within a dungeon, however no actual gameplay footage is shown, and instead we're greeted with a bunch of cinematics again.

    Deep Down Gameplay Trailer The trailer does, however, show that Capcom's Japanese roots are still intact, with a keyboard melody playing in the background akin to the old turn based Japanese RPGs, it's clear who's Capcom's target demographic is here.

    However, with it being free-to-play, Capcom haven't left out the rest of the world either, and we'll be able to get our hands on the game as soon as the Japanese can.

    The problem is, it's still unclear what kind of game Deep Down will actually be; gamers are comparing it mainly to Dark Souls, but comparisons to Assassins' Creed and other action RPGs are being made as well.

    Capcom is hinting at some kind of MMORPG twists to the game too, but once again it's unclear what this will mean for actual gameplay value.

    The truth is, no one is going to be interested in these trailers any longer unless Capcom shows some actual gameplay, so let's hope they get round to doing that before we get lost in Titanfall, Watch Dogs, Destiny, and any other nice looking titles that have impressive gameplay footage readily available on the internet.

  • The Last of Us Could Get a PS4 Port

    The Last of Us has been one of the many PlayStation exclusive titles that truly rocked it last year, however, with it being on the end of a generation, it left some gamers stuck between purchasing the game and saving for a new PS4 game upon the console's release later on in the year.

    Last of Us PS4 PortBecause of this, it's been pretty commonplace to hear players asking for a PlayStation 4 port for the Last of Us, and Naughty Dog may actually be considering it.

    It's not a definite yes at this point, but it's certainly not a definite no when it comes to a PS4 port for the Last of Us, and instead we're greeted with a "We'll see what the future brings" from community strategist Eric Monacelli.

    What this suggests is that Naughty Dog aren't quite sure what the demand would be for a PS4 port, and they are probably happy working on other projects until the answer to that question is more clear.

    If you'd love to see a PlayStation 4 port for the Last of Us, your best bet is to try and get out there to get your name heard, let Naughty Dog know that it is something that we all want.

    Personally I think the launch window title selection for both the PS4 and the Xbox One has been a little weak, so anything to add to our play experience would certainly be worth it at this point in time.

     

  • Footage Released of Flatout Dev's New Driving Game

    Flatout wasn't just a driving game; it was a sport, a religion, a whole world of crazy fun that you know you'd never be able to replicate in real life without breaking all the bones in your body at least once.

     

    It's been a while since a Flatout title has seen the light, but it turns out that the reason behind that is because Bugbear, the developer behind Flatout, has been secretly working on another racing game on the side, and if the new release footage video is anything to go by, it looks absolutely beautiful.

    flatout next car game

    So far, we don't know what the title of the driving game is, other than the video's suitably given name, next car game, but like mentioned before, it looks pretty damn spectacular.

     

    Thankfully, the game has enough destruction to keep us happily reminded of the golden days of Flatout, but the racing aspect of the game on top of that makes it look like an incredibly fast paced action oriented title.

     

    In terms of graphical quality, it's no Forza, but it doesn't look half bad either - the cars have a certain style to them that tells us not to take the realism too seriously, which makes sense seeing as we're driving across racing tracks that actively allow us to smash and ram into other players.

     

    No details yet on multiplayer options, or any possible mini games that could accompany the game, but knowing Bugbear, it's likely to come packed with all sorts of crazy mayhem.

  • Sony Says PS3 "Tough Learning" From PS3 Helped Realize PS4

    From the moment, PlayStation 4 was revealed it was obvious that Sony had learned from all their past mistakes made with the PlayStation 3. Although obvious, this observation was supported by what SCE CEO Andrew House had to say.

    138In a recent interview with MCV UK, House admitted the rough ride Sony went through during the early release of the PS3. But they didn't just try to deal with the problems, the learned from them. The valuable feedback that they received from the community is what they used:

    "Anyone can point out how those learnings have translated into the decisions we've made around PS4 -- selection of architecture, emphasis on ease of development, understanding PS4 had to be a highly connected and social experience. These were products of some tough learning we did on PS3."

    The results were obvious. In many ways the PS4 is the polar opposite to the PS3. It launched at $400 ($200 less than the PS3), made with off-the-shelf PC components which makes it easy for developers to code for, and Sony worked hard to make the console available worldwide. And it has paid off, currently selling more than 2 million units since launch. What more will Sony do? I can’t wait to see it go above and beyond anything the PS3 was ever capable of.
