  • The Order: 1866 Making Progress With New Screenshots

    The order 1866 screenshotsThe Order: 1866 is currently sitting as one of the most anticipated PS4 exclusives for 2015, but despite the hype, many gamers are starting to wonder whether the game will end up as impressive as it was first made out to be.

    One thing is for sure is that the game will look gorgeous. Recently, a collection of new screenshots were released, showing off in-game scenes from The Order: 1866, and it's certainly clear to see that the game is looking better than it has in any previous builds.

    On top of a overall visual overhaul, it seems like the character models have been reworked to hold even more detail, and various special effects like motion blur and changes to lighting have been made.

    For those unaware, The Order: 1866 is an upcoming PS4 exclusive title that will feature cover based combat. The game has been compared to Gears of War in terms of gameplay, whilst the story and setting of the game is set right within the Victorian era.

    As you can expect, The Order: 1866 will be filled with all sorts of flintlock rifles and other Victorian weaponry. Currently, the game has been set for a February 20th release and it's looking more and more likely that this will be the final date.

    In fact, The Order: 1866 has just gone gold, meaning that the full game is complete and ready for shipping. If you want to check out the new trailer celebrating the completion of The Order: 1866, you can do so here.

  • New Master Chief Collection Patch Releasing Soon

    Master Chief Collection PatchA new patch was planned to roll out for the Master Chief Collection last week but it has since been delayed. The patch had been mentioned to include some fixes to matchmaking whilst adding some general tweaks to multiplayer, campaigns and interfaces.

    Whilst 343 Industries failed to mention why the patch was delayed, they have since confirmed that the release of the patch has been pushed back till later this January. According to 343, the patch should be up and ready to install within the "next few days."

    It's a shame that after all this time, the Master chief Collection is still not working 100% as planned, but 343 are still working on it.

    The patch notes for the upcoming patch rolling out later this week can be read below.

    Matchmaking:
    Improved matchmaking search success rates.
    Made an update to reduce instances of "Awaiting Privileges" matchmaking errors.
    Made an update to ensure player counts more reliably match the expected numbers for each playlist.
    Fixed an issue where player would sometimes appear to be searching in an incorrect "FIND GAME" screen.
    Added countdown sound effect to the voting timer

    General multiplayer:
    Made several improvements to party joining through the in-game Roster.
    Made an update to ensure that the mute icon is visible while in Matchmaking.
    Fixed an issue in Halo 4 where players could equip the same weapon as their primary and secondary weapons.

  • Halo Spartan Ops Added to MCC

    halo spartan ops mccWhilst we all rightly presumed that the Master Chief Collection was going to be released with all of the content from previous games at launch, 343 Industries has been very far behind with development, due to server issues and other problems with the new Halo 2 anniversary multiplayer.

    As a result, many in-game features and content of the Master Chief Collection has been unavailable since launch, including the Spartan Ops missions that were released as part of Halo 4.

    The Spartan Ops missions were a set of in-game objectives that followed a set story and played out like the firefight game type in both Halo: Reach and Halo 3: ODST did. Unlike firefight, Spartan Ops were specially designed to delve into the story that took place whilst the Master Chief was floating about in space, and many players have complained that they are an incredibly important part of Halo 4.

    Fortunately enough, 343 Industries have just launched Spartan Ops for the Master Chief Collection in a new patch, and it contains all of the episodes from Halo 4 right at launch - this is a total of 10 co-op based episodes that can now be accessed from the Halo 4 section of the Master Chief Collection.

    If you didn't play through the Spartan Ops episodes on the Xbox 360 due to 343's strange release schedule for them, then you should definitely give them a go now that they are on the Xbox One, especially if you are a fan of the Halo universe and it's story.

  • Killer Instinct 1 Gets Online Multiplayer

    killer instinct 1 onlineRecently, Microsoft pushed out an Xbox One port of Killer Instinct 1 as part of the new season for the latest Killer Instinct game on the console, and now they are putting a little bit of love into it to pay homage to all those that played the original Killer Instinct on the Super Nintendo.

    In a new patch, that has recently gone live, Killer Instinct 1 now has online multiplayer capabilities, and players can jump in game to play against other players from across the world. As well as the new online features, Microsoft added a few new changes to Killer Instinct 1, all of which can be read in the patch notes below.

    - We updated the front page of Ultra-combo.com. If you scroll down to the Season 1 Changelist, you can now see an image of the Story Mode Mural!
    - Riptor's correct Ultra Music is not playing because of a bug. We're trying to fix that via patch before the next Content Update.
    - When you unlock a Story Mode XP bonus, that XP is Player XP only (not Character XP also).
    - There is a known issue with Story Mode XP sometimes unlocking, but not depositing. We're investigating a fix for that as well.

    These new changes to Killer Instinct 1 come hand in hand with the recent announcement of the reintroduction of Riptor to the latest Killer Instinct game in season 2. Riptor is a part human part velociraptor, who made his first appearance in Killer Instinct 1.

  • Rumors Stir Around New Rare AAA Game

    It's always exciting to hear what Microsoft's best development studio, Rare is up to these days. They have made classics like Banjo Kazooie and Viva Pinata, and have also thrown out dozens of other playful games suitable for the whole family.

    Rare's most recent attempts have been within the world of Kinect, and they have released a various of sports and other active games compatible with the Kinect for the Xbox 360. Unfortunately, most gamers weren't really interested in Rare when all of their effort went into these kind of games, but in a new light, Microsoft has realized that Rare deserves to be doing something a bit more exciting with their time.

    Que dozens of rumors now spreading the internet because of a small job listing Rare has posted on their website following the development shift for the studio. On the job listing, it states that Rare are looking for an animator that has "high quality animation skills that include movement in bipedal animation, quadruped and facial animation."

    The two things here that have sparked a lot of talk are the words "bipedal and quadruped." Whilst animation for a two legged character is fairly normal, "quadruped" suggests that Rare may be planning to create a big bunch of four legged characters in their next upcoming AAA game.

    Honestly, it could be anything, but it sounds as if Rare are looking for animators to create animals. Does this mean we will see another Viva Pinata game? Or maybe a brand new Banjo Kazooie? It is hard to say, but it's possible it could be either of these or something entirely different.

  • Sony Pays Homage to Crash Bandicoot in Odd Tweet

    Crash BandicootDespite being a very popular franchise for the original two PlayStation consoles, Sony has failed to mention anything about the future of Crash Bandicoot for a very long time. No news of development on new Crash Bandicoot games has been revealed by Sony, and many fans have presumed that the franchise is now dead.

    Whatever the truth may be, we don't know - all we can do is speculate. One rumor is that Crash Bandicoot has some trademark problems, and Sony doesn't actually own all of the rights to the game, which basically means they cannot get away with releasing a new Crash Bandicoot, even if they wanted to.

    Others suggest that development for Crash Bandicoot has simply been dropped by Sony following the last few games that did not sell very well on the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360.

    Either way, Sony has recently posted an image on their Twitter that pays homage to the franchise, and many gamers have jumped to the conclusion that Sony might just be planning a Crash Bandicoot comeback, and the Tweet, which is the first time Sony has publically mentioned Crash in a long time, is a small teaser for what is to come.

    Whether that is true or not, I cannot say, but I'm sure many PS4 owners out there would be incredibly excited to get their hands on a new Crash Bandicoot game. However, with the large amount of PlayStation exclusives currently lined up for release, it may be a while before a new Crash Bandicoot pops up on Sony's radar.

  • Lizard Squad Set For Ruining A Happy Xbox Christmas

    Lizard SquadIf you weren't accustomed to the name already, Lizard Squad is the title given to a group of online hackers that have spent their time bringing down online services for big corporations, and in the past they have managed to attack Sony, League of Legends and many other companies, typically related to the video game industry.

    They have now set their sights on an even bigger challenge, and it is actually quite scary, considering the damage they have done in the past. Lizard Squad took to Twitter earlier this month to announce that the plan to bring down Xbox Live on December 25th, and they hope to keep it down forever.

    The tweet stated, "This is not a threat, but a promise. On Christmas we will tap in to Microsoft and shut down Xbox Live, forever!"

    Obviously, Microsoft are taking the issue very seriously, and I'm sure they will do their best to ensure server performance is as good as possible leading up to Christmas. Microsoft did issue a warning that increased traffic may cause Xbox Live servers to be a little slower than normal on Christmas day, but other than this, no mention has been given about the potential loss of service from Lizard Squad.

    Honestly, I don't think Microsoft has too much to worry about, and there's no way Lizard Squad would be able to bring down their servers forever, if at all. We'll just have to wait for Christmas day to see exactly what happens.

  • Telltale's Game of Thrones Hits Consoles December 2nd

    telltale games game of thronesTelltale are pretty good at telling tales, let's be honest. They created the award winning The Walking Dead series, managed to live up to their high expectations with The Wolf Among Us, and very recently they returned to their story-telling roots by releasing Tales of The Borderlands - a great new game that follows the concoction Telltale are known for whilst exploring the backstory behind the Borderlands universe.

    Now, they have plans to release their in-development Game of Thrones game, and it's launch date has been set for December 2nd. On this date, the first part of a six episode series will be released for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3 and PlayStation 4, with an iOS release following shortly after.

    It seems that the entire Game of Thrones six-piece series will be available for just $30, although details on whether players will be able to buy each episode separately have not yet been mentioned by anyone at Telltale.

    I've played through The Walking Dead game by Telltale so I know there's a lot of potential for this Game of Thrones themed game too, but what do you think of the upcoming Game of Thrones Telltale game?

    It will be interesting to see how the game correlates with the story, and i'm sure a lot of die-hard GoT fans will be eager to find out just how close to the lore Telltale have stuck to with their game.

    Will you be picking up the new game on launch, waiting for reviews or skipping it entirely? Let us know your thoughts.

  • Detailed COD Advanced Warfare Prestige Emblems Detailed

    cod advanced warfare prestige emblemsWhilst nobody is yet the highest prestige in Advanced Warfare yet, the release of the game has allowed players to dive into the code and find out exactly what all of the prestige emblems look like.

    Admittedly, all of the prestige emblems in Call of Duty Advanced do look pretty cool, but the most interesting thing to come from the leaked prestige emblems is that there are a total of 16 prestiges in COD Advanced Warfare.

    It was revealed earlier in the year that Call of Duty Advanced Warfare would have a total of 15 prestiges, but it looks as if they have added in one more for the mix. On top of having 16 prestiges, Call of Duty Advanced Warfare will have 50 ranks for each prestige, meaning you will have to level up a total of 800 times before you max prestige the game, which is pretty crazy.

    In the screenshot shown above, all 16 of the new Call of Duty Advanced Warfare Prestige emblems can be seen.

    COD Advanced Warfare released earlier this week, and from our first impressions we are very impressed with the game so far. It has enough new to the franchise to keep things fresh, but it still feels and looks like the Call of Duty we have come to know and love.

    It will be interesting to see how well Call of Duty Advanced Warfare has sold, considering that it is available on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and the PC.

  • New Payday 2 DLC Pokes Fun at Battlefield

    payday 2 dlcPayday 2 developers StarBreeze have just released a new DLC pack that is currently only available on the Steam PC store. The new DLC pack includes new guns, melee weapons masks and gun mods for just $4.99.

    The new Payday 2 DLC has been dubbed the Gage Assault Pack, and it's promotional art, as you can see above, uncoincidentally resembles the splash art from Battlefield 4. It's clear that Payday 2 has been designed to be a lighthearted game with a humorous approach to gameplay, so this fun-poking at Battlefield from StarBreeze is pretty funny.

    Whilst the $4.99 Gaga Assault Pack is currently only available for PC via Steam, it's expected that the DLC pack will eventually be released for other platforms as well, including the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360.

    A more-in depth look at the Gage Assault Pack reveals that there will be a total of four new guns, four melee weapons, four masks, 28 gun mods, new mask materials and patterns, and a total of 10 new achievements. Unfortunately the new pack does not add any additional heists or extra gameplay content.

    Like previous Payday 2 DLC, players can still join up with one another regardless of what DLC each player has. In fact, the original Gage Weapon Pack for Payday 2 added grenade boxes to the game, and players without the DLC could use grenades when partnered up with a player who owns the DLC.

    We'll let you know if we hear anything about a PS3 or Xbox 360 release for the Gage Assault Pack.
