  • Knack 2 Gets Free PS4 Demo In Europe

    knack 2 demo europeA new demo has been released for the upcoming PS4 exclusive, Knack 2. The new demo is currently only available in Europe and Australia. If you're in either of these regions you can jump in and download the demo for free right now.

    So far, the demo weighs in at just 2.6GB. If you download it from the store today, you'll have roughly one week to play before Knack 2 is launched worldwide. Unfortunately, there's no evidence that the Knack 2 demo will come to any other regions, including North America.

    Knack 2 was originally revealed via a leak quite some time ago, but it wasn't until Sony's PSX event last year that the game was officially revealed by Sony. Now, Knack 2 is set to launch on September 5 in North America. Knack 2 will also launch in Europe and Australia a day later, on September 6.

    The original Knack didn't get as much critical appeal as the developers had originally hoped. However, game designer Mark Cerny feels like the sequel touches on a lot of the areas that the original game got wrong.

    When asked about the sequel, Mark Cerny mentioned that "There's a lot unexplored there, I think anybody who played the [original] game would tell you that."

    Are you interested in the Knack sequel? If the previews are anything to go by, it looks as if Knack 2 will be a considerable improvement over the first Knack game.

  • Battlefield 1 To Get 5v5 Incursions Mode

    battlefield 1 incursions modeBattlefield 1 is getting a brand new game mode that'll limit team size and put emphasis on team play within a much smaller squad.

    The new game mode is called Incursions and it will feature a 10-player limit, with 5 players per team. While the player limit has been limited severely in the Incursions mode, it will still feature maps and vehicles that are used in other game modes.

    To begin with, Incursions will go into a closed alpha state. During this time, players can register their interest to try the game mode and help to build the experience for the community. Afterwards, the game will be pushed out to live servers on all platforms that support Battlefield 1.

    To begin with, the game mode will be limited to the PC during alpha phase. During this time, gameplay mechanics could be adjusted drastically. For now, though, DICE's vision for Incursions is to create a strategy-focused game mode with a highly competitive skill curve.

    "Your choice in kit plays a critical role in the success of your squad, while every destroyed piece of environment can shift the entire momentum of the battle. Only the sharpest strategic teams will rise to the top of the competition. Every move and every bullet become the difference between victory and defeat. Scoring has been overhauled to create opportunities for dramatic comebacks and nail-biting upsets."

    DICE announced the new game mode at Gamescom and also published a video showcasing the game mode. The new trailer is available to view on their Youtube channel.

  • Star Wars Battlefront 2 Gets Space Battle Trailer

    star wars battlefront 2 space battleOne of the first complaints that players had with the first DICE Battlefront game was that the game didn't have any space battles.

    This was a feature in the original Battlefront franchise that a lot of fans appreciated. Thankfully, Battlefront 2 will be getting space battles and the gameplay has been showcased in a brand new trailer from EA.

    A brand new game mode is coming to Star Wars Battlefront 2 called Starfighter Assault - this is the mode that will incorporate most of the new space gameplay. In Starfighter Assault, one team must work together to destroy a starfighter, while the other team must try to keep it alive.

    Players will have the opportunity to fly through space in a number of popular Star Wars spaceships, including TIE Fighters and A-Wings.

    Besides the space combat, everything else about the new Starfighter Assault mode will remain the same. This means players will be able to use various pickups spread around the arena.

    Players will also get the chance to fly different spaceships that belong to the heroes in Battlefront 2. As an example, Darth Vader's unique TIE Fighter is available as a hero power-up.

    Star Wars Battlefront 2 is set to launch on November 17 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. The Starfighter Assault game mode will be available at launch, alongside a number of other game modes.

    Some game modes will be making a return, while a number of new game modes will be brought to the Battlefront franchise for the first time. Some games, such as the Starfighter Assault mode, will be based on game modes from the first two Battlefront games.

  • Destiny 2 Open Beta Extended

    destiny 2 open betaWe've got some great news for anybody enjoying the Destiny 2 Open Beta. The end time for the beta has been pushed further into the future, which means players have more time to play.

    Bungie still has more service testing to complete so that things are ready for release later this year. As a result, the Destiny 2 open beta has been extended until July 25. On July 25, the beta will end at around 6 PM.

    The open beta for Destiny 2 originally started on July 21. It included some content from the main campaign, as well as some PVP content from the Crucible.

    The campaign content included the first campaign mission, Homecoming. Crucible content includes the Countdown attack/defend mode on Endless Vale, which is a new Crucible map.

  • E3: Skyrim VR Is Coming to PlayStation 4

    skyrim vr e3Skyrim has already been released and re-released a million times already, but the latest addition to the PlayStation 4 should capture Elder Scrolls fans enough to bring them back to the game one final time.

    Skyrim VR was unveiled at the Sony E3 press conference. It has been confirmed as an exclusive title for the PlayStation 4 and will require the PlayStation VR kit to run. The game also supports PlayStation Move for hand gesture movement and control of the character's hands in Skyrim.

    So far, the release date was shared for Skyrim VR, and it wasn't made clear if Skyrim VR would remain an exclusive to Sony forever. Bethesda also unveiled Fallout 4 VR and Doom VFR at E3, although they weren't announced at Sony's E3 event.

    The price tag has not been confirmed yet, either. We wouldn't be surprised if Bethesda put the Skyrim VR game up for sale as a standalone game, but now that there have been so many Skyrim versions for various consoles, it's only fair that Bethesda considers putting a reasonable price on it. We'd be surprised if many gamers would be willing to pay full price for Skyrim...again.

    What are your thoughts on Bethesda's entry into the world of virtual reality? Do you think their range of games will translate well into the VR field? If you've got a VR headset, would you consider buying Skyrim VR? If you don't have a VR headset, does the announcement of Skyrim VR make you want to pick a headset up?

  • Call of Duty WW2 Multiplayer Detailed

    call of duty ww2 multiplayerDetails for the multiplayer in the new Call of Duty WW2 have been spilled at this year's E3. We now have a gameplay trailer for the multiplayer aspect of WW2, and a confirmation on the date for the PS4 multiplayer beta.

    Firstly, the new multiplayer reveal trailer for Call of Duty WW2 has now gone live. The trailer features a number of noteworthy shots. Some of the environments players can expect to play in are seen. Locations include Normandy in France; the Ardennes Forest in Belgium, and Aachen in Germany.

    Some gameplay footage was also shown. Straight off the bat, it's clear that this is a Call of Duty game - but it certainly feels more in-line with the earlier Call of Duty titles. Those that played Call of Duty World at War will feel at home with Call of Duty WW2, that's for sure.

    While the game has a more gritty, realistic approach, it'll still have a number of trademark Call of Duty features, including a Zombies mode.

    In other news, the Call of Duty WW2 multiplayer beta now has a date. The multiplayer beta will begin on PlayStation 4 on August 25. We're not yet sure how long the beta will last, and we're not sure if there will be an Xbox One or PC beta. It is clear, however, that the beta is currently exclusive to those that preorder Call of Duty WW2 on the PS4.

  • Halo to See Changes to Iconic Radar

    halo 5 radar updateThe radar has been an iconic part of the franchise ever since the Halo: Combat Evolved days. Over the years, the radar has had a number of changes but it has mostly remained the same.

    The trouble with this is that much of the rest of the Halo gameplay experience has evolved. The radar is now a little outdated and it certainly needs some more love to fit better with the gameplay available in Halo 5: Guardians.

    343 Industries has finally started working on changes to the radar, and the new tweaks will soon be ready to test in an upcoming multiplayer playlist.

    An official update post on Halo Waypoint mentioned, 'Nearly 16 months of player feedback and game data has driven some interesting internal explorations to alter the way the Motion Sensor functions in Halo 5. On Thursday, March 9, we will kick off a public test of this new Motion Sensor to gather player feedback and metrics to help determine if this has a potential place in Halo 5 going forward, as well as potential learnings and implications for future Halo FPS titles."

    So far it's important to note that the changes that'll be viewable on March 9 are nothing more than a test, but the feedback taken from the test will help to shape the future of the motion radar in Halo games.

    In the new test radar, things have been simplified and only non-silenced weapon fire and Spartan abilities like sprint, Spartan Charge, Ground Pound, Stabilize and Clamber will trigger the radar.

  • New Overwatch Character Orisa Announced

    overwatch orisaAfter what seemed like an endless wait, the next Overwatch character has finally been announced. The next Overwatch character to make it into the roster is named Orisa, and she is already playable in the public test realm.

    It may be some time before Orisa gets pushed to live servers and to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, but we still have all of the information we could possibly need about Orisa from the public test realm.

    Orisa has been nicknamed the "Mechanical Peacekeeper" and unexpectedly she has a very robotic appearance. Orisa is a straight out tank, and once again her appearance really shows it. She's big - Orisa is essentially a robotic centaur with a gattling gun.

    Her main abilities allow Orisa to provide barriers and shield to her team, which gives teammates the option to tank it out themselves for a little longer in fights. Her ultimate is called Supercharger and this is the only offensive ability she has in her arsenal. With Supercharger, Orisa boosts the damage of her surrounding teammates for a short period.

    Hopefully, it won't be long before Orisa is pushed out to live servers and to the console versions of Overwatch. The last character to launch was Sombre, and this character spent a long time in the public test realm before finally being pushed to the live servers. Orisa seems, on the surface, a lot easier to balance, so hopefully we won't be waiting too long whatsoever.

  • Elder Scrolls Online Gets New Housing Patch

    elder scrolls online housingA previously PC-exclusive update for Elder Scrolls Online has finally made it's way to the Xbox One and the PS4. The update in question adds housing to the world of ESO for the first time since the game's release.

    The new free update is called Homestead and with it, players will be able to purchase their very own home to call their own. Once a home is purchased, a player can customize the interior in a variety of different ways. The Homestead options available include roughly 40 different rooms and buildings types, ranging in size, price and functionality.

    All of the available player houses in Homestead are instanced, so every player can own their own version of any house they please in the game world, so long as they've got the gold for it of course.

    The very high-end houses are essentially separate islands off of the mainland of Tamriel. There are ten different types of islands, all of which are themed around one of the 10 playable races in Elder Scrolls Online.

    With the introduction of housing, players now have the opportunity to craft new items - all of the 2,000 different decorative interior items can be bought, crafted and traded between players.

    This is by no means a necessary update for Elder Scrolls Online so to see that it's been pushed out for free is refreshing and we're excited to see what might come out of the Elder Scrolls Online development camp next.
