  • Xbox Games with Gold June Lineup Revealed

    xbox games with goldThe new free games lineup for the Xbox Games with Gold June promotion has now been revealed by Microsoft and there are a number of free games Xbox Gold members will be able to pick up throughout the month.

    Like previous months, players will be able to get one Xbox 360 during the first half of the month and another Xbox 360 game during the second half of the month. This month there will be two three Xbox One games, both of which can be downloaded throughout the entirety of June.

    First up for the Xbox 360 lineup is Just Cause 2. Considering hype for Just Cause 3 has been blowing up recently, it seems like perfect timing to have a free access pass to Just Cause 2. Whilst the game may now be several years old, there's still dozens of hours worth of fun to be had in this game. You can download Just Cause 2 for free right now, although it will be swapped out with another game on June 15.

    Starting June 16, Thief will be put up for free for Xbox 360 Gold members. Thief is much newer than Just Cause 2, although it certainly didn't perform as well in terms of sales. Even though Thief received quite bad press, there short story still holds some value, and we'd suggest trying it out, considering you can pick it up for free until June 30.

    When it comes to the Xbox One, Pool Nation FX and Massive Chalice have both been put up for free download. Pool Nation is pretty much what it says on the tin - an arcade style pool table game.

    Massive Chalice is a brand new title that has been released by Double Fine, the developers of Brutal Legend.

  • Upcoming Battlefield Hardline DLC Detailed

    battlefield hardline dlcThe first Battlefield Hardline DLC has now been announced by Visceral Games and some of the content we can expect to find in the expansion has been detailed.

    The first Battlefield Hardline DLC has been called Criminal Activity. As expected, Criminal Activity will come with four new maps. The expansion may include other content as well but at this point in time it has not be announced by Visceral Games or EA.

    Two of the new Battlefield Hardline maps will be set at night, whilst the other two will be set at day. All four maps will be set in Florida and California so we can expect to be fighting in an urban environment. Personally I think urban maps are the best settings for Hardline, so it's great to see we’ll be getting some more city action soon.

    Unfortunately no solid release date for Criminal Activity has yet been revealed. We do know that the next DLC pack for Battlefield Hardline, which is scheduled for release after Criminal Activity will be launching in the summer of 2015. This means that we should see Criminal Activity anywhere from now till the start of summer.

    No pricing has been given for the Criminal Activity DLC as of yet but it will come as part of the season pass, so if you're a Battlefield Premium user you'll be able to pick up Criminal Activity for free. Premium members will also gain access to the DLC expansion two weeks before standard players.

  • No Solo Campaign in Battlefront

    solo campaign battlefrontThere is a very large pool of gamers that are getting hyped up for the launch of Star Wars: Battlefront. Whilst EA and DICE have managed to impress most audiences so far, there is one area of Battlefront that will be completely missing and this may disappoint some gamers who prefer a more solo experience.

    Even though there will be some local co-op options for players and you will be able to connect to some content in Star Wars: Battlefront whilst offline, there will be no solo campaign in the game. Unlike previous Star Wars Battlefront titles, this means that players will be limited to playing the multiplayer mode or playing the Missions mode against AI opponents.

    The Missions mode gives players the opportunity to team up locally on one single console, but we're assuming that you'll also be able to play Missions on your own. The name Missions makes the mode sound a lot more interesting, but it's basically just a player Vs AI equivalent of the online multiplayer modes.

    The Missions mode can be completed online as well, and they are simply described as a series of objectives players can complete across different locations. This approach is very similar to the route Respawn Entertainment took with Titanfall.

    The lack of solo campaign isn't inherently a bad thing, but I really hope that the multiplayer is captivating to keep us coming back again and again. We'll have to wait till E3 for our next taste of Battlefront. Hopefully we'll see some gameplay at E3 considering Battlefront is now set to release this November.

  • Gears of War 4 Gets Teased Mocap Image

    gears of war 4 mocap imageWe all know a new Gears of War game is coming, there's no doubt about it. It's one of the few franchises that really helped to serve the Xbox 360 a great deal of popularity, and many fans are ready to see a new Gears game.

    Whilst we haven't really had any full official details about Gears of War 4, we'll occasionally hear bits of information from developers working on the game, and that is exactly what happened this week.

    Whilst the Gears of War Marcus Fenix collection was unfortunately confirmed as a false rumor by Black Tusk's producer Rod Fergusson, he did mention that they may have something special to show us at E3 later this year.

    To follow on with that, Jack Felling a developer at Black Tusk Studios, shared an image on Twitter that had the caption "Last day of the shoot... One of the actors in a mocap suit! #MotionCapture #Props #MarkerBalls @GearsofWar"

    It's clear that Black Tusk have been working on a new Gears of War game, and the latest news suggesting that motion capture has been almost finished up is great to hear. E3 is only a few months away now, so hopefully we'll see some kind of official reveal once the gaming event is upon us. Until then we'll just have to be patient and hope that the developers at Black Tusk reveal some other information about the new Gears of War game.

  • Halo 5 Hunt The Truth Episode Released

    halo 5 hunt the truthOver last week, a teaser website popped up, teasing something in relation to Halo 5: Guardians. At the time, no details were given about what the website was for. The website simply provided a countdown, and presented the phrase "Hunt the Truth." Since then, the countdown has reached zero, and we now have access to what seems to be the first in a series of podcasts related to the story of the Halo universe.

    Instead of getting a team of developers to delve into the story of Halo, the podcast plays a transcript from a fictional war journalist, named Ben Giraud. In the first episode, Giraud goes a little bit into how the Master Chief has saved humanity, and how he is a living legend.

    Throughout the first episodic podcast, Giraud goes on to explain his quest to write the ultimate biography of the Master Chief, however along the way, he started to find a series of concerning details about the Chief.

    Because of these new details, Giraud has now set out to learn the truth of Spartan 117, and it looks as if these new podcasts will take us with him on his journey.

    Straight off the bat, this podcast screams excitement, and I, as a big Halo fan, am very interested about how this episodic podcast could unravel. So far, we know very little about the story of Halo 5: Guardians, but it looks like it could delve a lot deeper into the lore of the Halo universe than we first thought.

    Halo 5: Guardians will be released later this year during the Holiday season.

  • Goat Simulator is Coming to Xbox

    goat simulator xboxI've got the exact news you've been wanting to hear. Coffee Stain Studios have announced that Goat Simulator will be coming to the Xbox 360 and the Xbox One. Worthy of more than a few game of the year awards, Goat Simulator is an incredibly realistic simulation game that gives you an unprecedented view into the life of a goat.

    There are just no other animal sims out there that quite match the prowess of Goat Simulator, and Microsoft made a very good choice allowing Coffee Stain Studios to bring it to the Xbox One and the Xbox 360.

    If you've seen the game, you'll of course no everything above is just a little far from the truth. Goat Simulator is actually a strangely put together sandbox game that gives you access to a world of physics based environments. The whole fun of Goat Simulator is to basically see what kind of crazy things you can make happen with a goat and a world of objects that react crazily when hit into.

    The game is filled with all sorts of glitches, but Coffee Stain wanted it to be this way - the game is meant to be taken lightly, and is just a bit of fun to have when you have a few minutes to spare.

    So far, we don't have any details about the exact release date of Goat Simulator or the price, but we do know that the game will be releasing at some point in April.

  • Dead or Alive 5 Last Round has Almost $100 Worth of DLC

    dead or alive 5 last roundWhether or not you're okay with the dozens of dollars worth of DLC content in Evolve generally comes down to how you feel about the whole practice of selling you content after the game has been completed, but it's not just Evolve that features staggering amounts of paid-for content.

    In fact, Team Ninja have recently released details on what new downloadable content will be available in their latest remaster for new gen consoles. I'm of course talking about Dead or Alive 5 Last Round, the game that is a remake of Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate, which is coincidentally a remake of Dead or Alive 5.

    I'm sure you can see what I'm getting at here. Even though Dead or Alive 5 Last Round is not going for full retail on either the PlayStation 4 or the Xbox One, the game does include just under $93 worth of DLC.

    Fortunately, practically all of the DLC available is only cosmetic skins and costumes for characters, similarly to a lot of the content players can pay for in Evolve. The $93 price tag for DOA 5: LR is actually for the season pass. If you purchase every piece of DLC in Last Round separately, however, you'll possibly be looking at spending a considerable amount more.

    So, before you get mad at Evolve for trying to milk us of our hard earned cash, just remember, there are games out there that offer 79 character costumes for a crazy $93. Honestly, it's all a bit crazy, but let's just be glad that most of it, both in Evolve and Dead or Alive, is all cosmetic and has no impact on the game whatsoever.

  • "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.

  • GTA V To Get A Next-Gen Version?

    GTA V Story DLCWell I bet this question was on the minds of several gamers, and might even have been sought by many. We already got both versions for several games including Call of Duty Ghosts and Assassin's Creed 4, so would it really be surprising to get a next gen port for GTA 5?

    I mean no official news has been announced yet, and maybe even Rockstar is assessing the situation but we all thought at a point that GTA5 might be released for the next gen consoles. A big reason why a lot of us actually still hold on to our current games is also the fact that GTA5 was released on them.

    During a recent interview with Lazlow, one the franchise mainstays, he responded to the question about whether gamers would see GTA5 on the next gen consoles. To this he responded with, "[they] haven't announced anything yet" followed by a wink which Lazlow explained was just a momentary reaction to a "seizure."

    I mean at a point it is sort of inevitable. The new consoles already have quite a pretty decent userbase which will only increase. It is a matter of time before we will see GTA5 there, so the real question ends up being, when? Check out the interview for yourself from the link below.

  • Xbox One Indie Games Arriving From Early Next Year

    Last August Microsoft revealed their indie development program for the Xbox One, and now they the first batch of games are scheduled to release from the early next year. ID@Xbox director Chris Charla told Edge that Microsoft has 32 studios currently working on indie titles for the Xbox One. Charla said, "I think it will be early in the New Year, in the first three months. I would say closer to the third month."

    Xbox-One_2584436bCharla added that many of the games have been in development for months, "Some developers started developing for Xbox One, others already had games in development and are working on Xbox One versions. I would say they're at all stages of development, honestly. Other ID@Xbox developers however are waiting to gain access to the development tools. Microsoft is also planning on expanding the program and attempting to attract players to create to their own games using Project Spark.

    Although PlayStation 4 has definitely had the head start, Xbox One is slowly gaining momentum. Several developers have already expressed their renewed interest towards the Xbox One in interviews with the Verge. The ID@Xbox program might also lead to future apps for the Xbox One as there may be future plans to attract app developers. Definitely some great news for Xbox One owners as the original programming launch would them access to pretty unique stuff in the future.
