  • 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.

  • Age of Empires IV Announced

    age of empires ivOut of nowhere, Microsoft has geared up to announce Age of Empires IV. The game will launch for Xbox One and Windows, and it will also launch a definitive edition of the first three Age of Empires games.

    So far, we know very little about Age of Empires IV besides the fact that it's coming. We do know that the studio responsible for Age of Empires IV will be the Microsoft Games Studio. Many of the developers from the original Age of Empires trilogy have moved on, so instead Microsoft has hired out the bulk of developers responsible for the Company of Heroes real time strategy franchise.

    The development team made a statement alongside the Age of Empires IV announcement trailer.

    "We can't wait to tap into our strengths as a studio to fuse historical context with deep strategic gameplay, and to bring this franchise back to the forefront of gaming and into the hands of its beloved community. We look forward to sharing with you more details in the months to come. For now, just know we are beyond excited to be working on the next entry into the legendary franchise."

    The last Age of Empires title launched in 2011 as a free-to-play game for Windows. Many players didn't consider it worthy of the Age of Empires name, however, and the last game to get praise from critics across the globe was Age of Empires 3, which launched in 2005.

    The Age of Empires Definitive Edition is set to launch exclusively for Windows 10 later this year in the Windows Store. The Definitive Edition will go on sale on October 19 and will include remastered versions of the first three Age of Empires games.

  • New Overwatch Map, Junkertown Announced

    overwatch map junkertownA brand new Overwatch map has been announced. The new map is called Junkertown and it was first announced at Gamescom.

    The new map will be an escort map and the environment has been created to represent Junkrat and Roadhog's home town.

    In the lore, Junkertown is set in the heart of Australia. This was one of the countries to get impacted by the Omnic crisis the hardest, and as a result, the entire environment is falling to pieces. Buildings and shelters are put together with whatever scrap material can be found.

    Those that live in Junkertown are known as Junkers. Originally, both Junkrat and Roadhog lived within Junkertown as Junkers, too. However, the duo was caught stealing from the queen of Junkertown. As punishment, both Junkrat and Roadhog were exiled from the city.

    To go alongside the map announcement, Blizzard released a brand new video on their Youtube channel that showed Junkrat and Roadhog explaining the new Junkertown map.

    The video is filled with jokes and laughs and gives an insight into the personalities of both Junkrat and Roadhog.

    So far, a release date for Junkertown hasn't been announced, but Blizzard has mentioned that the map will be coming to Overwatch soon.

    What are your thoughts on the new Junkertown map? Are you excited to get access to a new free escort map soon, or are you more interested in new characters for Overwatch?

    Recently, Doomfist was finally released to Overwatch and many players are already finding him to be a perfect pick for a good team composition.

  • Evolve Receives 2014's Best of Gamescom Award

    evolve gamescom awardsThe brand new 4 vs 1 shooter title from 2K has managed to pick up a variety of different awards from Gamescom this year, including the 'Best of Gamescom Award.' There's no denying that Evolve has managed to impress a pretty large audience, and I hope that the game manages to live up to what we've come to expect from the title so far.

    On top of grabbing the Best of Gamescom Award, Evolve has managed to pick up an award for the best console game from Microsoft Xbox, an award for the best action game, the best PC game, and the best online multiplayer game.

    Surprisingly, the only other companies to get awards from more than one category were Sony and Nintendo, making Evolve the biggest hit of Gamescom 2014 by far.

    Other games like Super Smash Bros, The Evil Within, Splatoon, Risen 3 and Littlebigplanet 3 managed to pick up awards too, however no other game was awarded the winning award in more than one category.

    Evolve looks to change the first person scene up by pitting four players against one another player. The fifth player gets to control large alien creatures, and put other pressures on the team of four humans. Evolve will release exclusively for the Xbox One later this year on October 21st. In the meantime, hopefully we'll get to see a bit more about the game before it is finally released. I'm not sure about you, but I personally cannot wait to get my hands on Evolve.

  • New The Division Trailer Shows Off Quick Gameplay Shots

    the division trailerA brand new trailer for The Division has just been released by Ubisoft, and it reveals a few things about the Xbox One version of the game, as well as showing a short glimpse at real gameplay footage.

    Firstly, the new trailer for Tom Clancy's The Division reveals that Ubisoft are planning to share details on the Xbox One version of the game for the first time at this year's Gamescom. On top of this, the trailer shows off a few off-screen glimpses of gameplay from the E3 demo for The Division.

    I'm very interested to learn more about Tom Clancy's: The Division, and hopefully Ubisoft will be willing to share a few details about the game at this year's Gamescom, which is under way this month.

    Whether Ubisoft will open up a real playable demo to visitors of Gamescom, or whether they'll keep gameplay to themselves is currently unknown, but I expect we'll be seeing some kind of Xbox One based gameplay footage very shortly at Gamescom.

    Tom Clancy's The Division is looking to be one of the most unique titles announced for the new gen, and many gamers are incredibly excited to see exactly what the game will consist of.

    So far, we know that The Division will be a "massive" multiplayer online third person shooter title that is based within a fragile, complex futuristic society that breaks down after a disease spreads through the US.
