  • New Battlefield 1 Map and Content Coming Soon

    battlefield 1 new map name of tsarA brand new Battlefield 1 map has been announced and more information has been shared about the upcoming DLC content drop that will be hitting in late summer.

    The brand new map for Battlefield 1 is named Prise de Tahure, and it will take place in the autumn after the Nivelle Offensive. This was a French and British lead offensive that took place in 1917. The official map description is as follows:

    "Prise de Tahure sees French troops desperately holding on to re-captured heights in the Butte-de-Tahure region. The frontline trench networks cut right through several villages facing obliteration from the constant skirmishing between German stormtroopers and French raiders. This is a war of attrition. Adaptability and tactics are the means to wear your adversary down."

    The new map will shortly be added to the community test environment - during test play, DICE will make any adjustments they see necessary. After that, the update will be prepared to launch alongside the upcoming The Name Of The Tsar DLC content drop.

    It's been revealed that the Name Of The Tsar DLC pack will include the Russian army as a new playable faction. An event will take place on June 10 in which more content for the upcoming DLC pack will be revealed. A full release for the DLC is set for 'this summer.'

    Are you looking forward to the upcoming content for Battlefield 1? What excites you more, the new Prise de Tahure map or the upcoming playable Russian faction?

  • Horizon Zero Dawn Patch 1.20

    horizon zero dawn patch 1.20A new Horizon Zero Dawn patch adds 243MB of new changes and tweaks to the game.

    The new update is patch 1.20 and it makes a number of changes to the photo feature, among other tweaks.

    With the new improved photo mode, you'll now have more poses for Aloy to use, as well as a number of new facial expressions. 3 more filters have been added too, so you can snap shots like it's going straight on Instagram. More importantly, the camera controls have been improved so that it's easier to get that perfect shot.

    The new 1.20 patch also adds some much-needed changes to the crafting menu. There are new categories now, which makes it easier to navigate through the menu. You'll also see a green check mark next to any categories that have been completed, while a white icon has been added to categories that contain recipes that can be crafted. A gray icon has been added to symbolize categories that have no recipes that can be crafted.

    Patch 1.20 has also fixed a number of gameplay progression bugs that have previously stopped players from progressing through the game. A large number of smaller tweaks have been added too, including the option to be able to sell entire stacks of items to merchants by doubling tapping the square icon.

    What do you think of the latest patch? Are you likely to use the photo mode in Horizon Zero Dawn?

  • Darksiders 3 Trailer Released

    darksiders 3 trailerIt has been 5 years since the last Darksiders game got a release. After a long wait, a Darksiders 3 trailer has hit the internet and everybody is getting very excited.

    THQ Nordic has confirmed that Darksiders 3 will be making its way to the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC in 2018.

    The THQ Nordic CEO, Lars Wingefors, mentioned that "As promised, we have taken our time to ensure that this next Darksiders will be everything action-adventure gamers and especially Darksiders loyalists could dream of and more."

    In the past 5 years, action adventure games have evolved. In many thanks to the Dark Souls franchise, action adventure games have become one of the most grueling, difficult genres available - we're hoping THQ Nordic will take some inspiration from some of the latest and greatest games in the genre to re-imagine the Darksiders 3 franchise, while still sticking close to the series' roots.

    Alongside the recent trailer, THQ Nordic has released some information about the background story for Darksiders 3. We have provided an excerpt below.

    Return to an apocalyptic planet Earth in Darksiders III, a hack-n-slash action adventure where players take on the role of Fury in her quest to hunt down and dispose of the Seven Deadly Sins. The Charred Council calls upon Fury to battle from the heights of heaven down to the depths of hell in a quest to restore humanity and prove that she is the most powerful of the Horsemen. As a mage, Fury relies on her whip and magic to restore the balance between good and evil. The expansive, Darksiders III game world is presented as an open-ended, living, free-form planet Earth that is dilapidated by war and decay, and overrun by nature. Fury will move back and forth between environments to uncover secrets while advancing the Darksiders III story.

  • Black Ops 3 Getting Zombies Map Remasters

    black ops 3 zombies chroniclesIn a bit of a surprise move, Treyarch has announced some new content for Black Ops 3, specifically for the zombies mode.

    It has been announced that new content under the name Zombies Chronicles will be making its way to Black Ops 3 in the near future. The new content will feature remastered versions of eight different zombies maps from previous COD zombies games.

    The eight maps include the following - Nacht der Untoten, Kino der Toten, Shangri-la, Shi no Numa, Moon, Ascension, Verruckt and Origins.

    Jason Blundell, studio head for Treyarch, has spread his word on the importance of these eight maps. He feels strongly that these eight maps are "the foundation for Zombies," and that he felt like "It was more important to give people the beginnings."

    Call of Duty Black Ops 3: Zombie Chronicles will launch on May 16 - so far this launch will be exclusive to PlayStation 4. A later launch for Xbox One should follow, although the Xbox One launch date hasn't been announced yet. Interestingly, the price tag for the new Zombies Chronicles maps hasn't been announced either. We would expect it will go on sale for a similar price to previous DLC packs from Treyarch, however.

    If we take a look at previous timed Call of Duty exclusivities, we can safely guess that the Xbox One launch should be roughly one month after the PS4 launch, so we'd say June 16 could be a good estimate.

  • New Heroes and Maps Coming to For Honor

    for honor new heroesThe first For Honor season has recently come to an end, and as a result, a brand new season in For Honor with new maps and heroes is set to go live.

    The new season will go live on May 16 and will coincide with a big content update, featuring maps and new playable heroes. The next season has been codenamed Shadow and Might.

    The two new For Honor heroes are named the Shinobi and the Centurion - both offer new experiences for both spectrums of the combat field. "The Shinobi are silent warriors able to move with a dancer's grace and kill with precision thanks to a lifetime of disciplined training. They wield the traditional Japanese Kusarigama," while "The Centurion sees the battlefield like a chessboard. Equipped with the reliable standard issue gladius, Centurions can bypass enemy defenses through strategic close-quarters combat."

    The new Shadow and Might season will also add a new class of gear - this gear will be even rarer than any previous gear tiers and has been nicknamed 'Epic' gear. With new Epic gear items, the max gear score has increased drastically. We imagine it'll be some time before any players hit the new max gear score when the next season goes live on May 16.

    All features in season 2 will be available for all players for free, however, season pass holders will get instant access to the new heroes, while those without the season pass will need to wait till May 23 and must use the in-game Steel currency to purchase the heroes.

  • Dirt 4 Gets New Trailer

    dirt 4 new trailerCodemasters has released a brand new trailer for their upcoming racing game, Dirt 4, and it already looks absolutely spectacular.

    The trailer is only a minute long, but it does show off some good in-game footage from some off-road tracks, as well as some more traditional off-road racing spots. The game also features the song Instigators by Grace Potter - we feel like it's a fitting choice. It'll be one of the forty songs that will accompany Dirt 4's soundtrack upon the game's release.

    Speaking of release, Dirt 4 has booked a North American release date of June 6th, 2017. The rest of the world will receive the game on June 9th. Dirt 4 will be available for PC, Xbox One and PS4.

    Dirt 4 will come with 50 off-road ready vehicles at launch, including the Ford Fiesta R5, Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VI, Subaru WRX STI NR4 and Audi Sport quattro S1 E2. The game will feature rally locations across Australia, Spain, Michigan, Sweden, and Wales. Players will have access to the solo career mode, and plenty of online competitive modes and regular challenges.

    Dirt 4 will also feature a Live ladder system, leagues, tournaments, cross-platform leaderboards, and an enhanced CREST telemetry system.

    For those super serious about the game, on-the-fly tuning is available for players to tweak their cars depending on different weather and environmental changes.

  • Shockwave is an Illegal Move in CWL Matches

    shockwave infinite warfare bannedAfter a lot of discussion from esports analysts and pro players, the Shockwave ability in Infinite Warfare has finally been banned in CWL matches.

    Going forward, any CWL matches will no longer allow the Shockwave ability and we wouldn't be surprised if other event organizers outside of the CWL circuit follow suit.

    For those unaware, the Shockwave ability was something that the Merc combat rig could use if they equipped it on their loadout. With Shockwave, players were able to jump into the air and then use thrusters to quickly hit the ground below them, killing any players in the nearby area. Because of the verticality of many Infinite Warfare maps, it was too easy for Merc players to get the high ground and take easy kills on players passing by.

    To begin with, Shockwave wasn't too difficult to counter, but in April the Shockwave received a buff that made it hard to counter. Unsurprisingly, Shockwave has now received a ban from CWL events - we'd expect it to get a slight nerf in the near future.

    Interestingly enough, the Infusion trait is also currently banned at CWL events, so Merc players will be limited to the Man-At-Arms trait, which allows players to have maximum ammo capacity and increased mobility.

    It's great to see CWL looking out for their community like this. Have you tried the newly updated Shockwave trait yet? Do you think it's overpowered? Let us know by leaving a message below.

  • GTA Online Land Grab Adversary Mode Goes Live

    gta online land grab adversary modeA brand new GTA Online adversary mode has gone live for PS4, Xbox One, and PC players. The new adversary mode is called Land Grab, and it is somewhat reminiscent of the Tron bike game mode that was added last year.

    "Claim what's rightfully yours in Land Grab, the latest mode to invade GTA Online. Every minute counts in Land Grab, where teams battle to control territory in an unforgiving cyberspace: shoot the other guy in the neck, grab his turf, reload and repeat. If you don't do it, someone will do it for you."

    Players must run over neon-colored tiles on the Land Grab maps to claim the tiles for their team. By doing so, the tiles will change to a player's team color. Players can fight it out on foot while fighting for territory. The team with the highest number of tiles once the clock runs down will be crowned the winner.

    The Land Grab maps feature some close quarters action, so you'll want to pull out your assault rifles, SMGs, and shotguns. You'll quickly be thrown into the action each time you die, so if you're looking for a fast paced deathmatch game mode, the new Land Grab mode should appeal to you.

    The new update for GTA Online didn't add any new rewards or in-game items, but players can earn double GTA$ & RP in the Land Grab adversary mode up until April 24th.

    Have you tried out the new adversary Land Grab mode yet? What do you think?

  • Final Call of Duty Infinite Warfare DLC Lands

    call of duty infinite warfare continuum dlcWhile it may not be long before the next Call of Duty game launches, a brand new DLC pack for Infinite Warfare has just released. The new DLC pack includes a number of new multiplayer maps and some other new gameplay content.

    The new DLC for Infinite Warfare is called Continuum and it adds four new multiplayer maps and a brand new game mode called Shuffle Zombies. The new DLC expansion is currently only available for the PlayStation 4, but it will push out to Xbox One and PC in around a month's time.

    For those interested in the DLC, you'll need to pick it up in the PSN Store for $15.

    The four new maps for the new Continuum Infinite Warfare DLC are Turista, Scrap, Archive, and Excess. The official map descriptions have been provided below:

    Turista is nestled in the middle of a giant skeleton of an ancient creature. With sniper spots scattered across a majestic, central waterfall, Turista also boasts tight interiors for fans of close-quartered combat and a three-lane design that caters to a variety of play styles.

    Scrap is set in an abandoned junkyard on the Moon. Scrap features a combination of extended sightlines and tactical pathways that reward players who engage in both long and short range combat.

    Archive features fast, frenetic engagements. It's a post-futurist art gallery where tight engagements contrast with open exterior battlegrounds in this wide three-lane style map.

    Perched atop a gilded penthouse in a sprawling future metropolis, Excess is a small, circular map re-imagined from the classic Modern Warfare 2 map, Rust, that retains the intense, fast-paced combat from the original.

  • Black Ops 2 Available on Xbox One via Backwards Compatibility

    black ops 2 available xbox oneCall of Duty: Black Ops 2 is now available on the Xbox One via backwards compatibility. The news hit via an announcement post on the Xbox news website.

    The new Black Ops 2 backwards compatible version is free to everybody that already owns the physical or digital version of Black Ops 2 on Xbox 360. If players do not own Black Ops 2, they can now purchase a digital copy for their Xbox One from the Xbox Games Store.

    Currently, the digital copy of Black Ops 2 on the Xbox One is on sale with a 60% discount for those with Xbox Live Gold and a 50% discount for those who do not have an active Gold subscription. The sale will continue until April 17.

    Unsurprisingly, the newly available backwards compatible Black Ops 2 has brought thousands of Xbox One players back to the title. With recent numbers, it looks as if the new Black Ops 2 player base may even surpass the current Infinite Warfare player base. It's great to see the Xbox One backwards compatibility program grow to support some of the biggest hits to launch on the Xbox 360.

    Will you be playing Black Ops 2 on the Xbox One? How do you think Black Ops 2 compares to Infinite Warfare? Is there even room for comparison? Judging by the recent boost in player count to Black Ops 2, it's clear many are bigger fans of the Black Ops series.
