  • Guerrilla Games Gearing Up to Reveal New IP at E3 2014

    guerrilla games new IPGuerrilla Games won't be working on a new Killzone game for their next title release, but instead will focus on a brand new IP, according to a new job listing by the development studio.

    According to the job listing, the new IP by Guerrilla Games will feature online multiplayer, singleplayer and co-op experiences, however no other information from the studio has been given.

    Luckily though, a bit of information has leaked from an insider, who also leaked content on the PS4 1.70 update, so although the information from the tipster may be false, it's pretty likely the information shared could be pretty on track with Guerrilla Game's plans for the future.

    The insider revealed that Guerrilla Games plan to reveal their new game at E3 this year, and despite Killzone Shadowfall selling over 2 million copies, it's definitely clear that the upcoming game will be a completely new IP.

    Like all of Guerrilla Game's titles, the new IP will be exclusive to Sony, and will be developed for PlayStation 4, making it the second title Guerrilla Games will have on the console. Considering that Guerrilla Games have experience with the Killzone franchise, it could be possible that the new game offers some sort of shooter experience, but at this point in time there's no real way of knowing.

    We'll have to wait for Guerrilla Games to unveil more information on their upcoming IP, but hopefully we will all be in for a treat this year at E3.

  • Destiny Max Level Cap Will Be Reached Within a Few Hours

    Destiny level capOne of the greatest things about the Borderlands franchise is that it literally takes at least 100 hours to reach the max level, and afterwards there are still ways to keep leveling, and if that's your cup of tea then you'll definitely be happy to go back and do it again on a harder difficulty.

    However, despite Destiny having similarities to Borderlands in terms of world exploration and weapon looting, the leveling system will be entirely different. In fact, it will be entirely possible in Destiny to reach the max level cap within just a few hours of gameplay.

    It's important to realize right away that although the level cap can be hit pretty quickly, the game will certainly not be over once the cap is reached. Instead, players will be able to put more focus into other aspects of the game, such as weapon upgrades and locating great loot.

    Bungie's idea behind this is that they want to be able to offer players a level playing field as quickly as possible. In MMO's, joining friends can often be a frustrating procedure - if you start a new MMO, it would take dozens to hundreds of hours of leveling before you can even start to enjoy playing with your level capped friends.

    In Destiny, this issue won't be apparent because the level cap will be reached early on, and once it has been reached, the biggest thing players will be working towards is finding better gear.

    Destiny will be released this September, and a Beta should be available to those who pre-ordered some time this summer.

  • GameStop Destiny Pre-orders Will Come With Free Hover Bike Upgrade

    destiny red sparrow bonusSo far, we know that Destiny will have two forms of transport - the hover-bike type vehicles that allow players to get around a world quickly, and a spaceship of sorts that acts as a travel system to different planets.

    Bungie hasn't really gone into much detail about how either of these two vehicles will work, but by the sounds of it there will be some kind of customization involved. One of the most interesting things we've heard about the vehicles recently is that GAME, a video game retailer in the UK, are offering a special upgraded hover bike as a pre-order incentive to anybody who pre-orders Destiny.

    So far, Bungie haven't made any statements about the GAME partnership, but according to GAME these upgraded vehicles will have better stats than the original versions. According to the GAME press release, the upgraded Sparrow hoverbike will be faster and more durable than the standard Sparrow.

    As this game doesn't really involve any play versus player interactions this kind of pre-order bonus should be seen as a nice incentive to back Bungie. Unfortunately, no details have been given about any other regions or participating retailers offering the same hoverbike pre-order content. This could mean the red hoverbike could be limited to those who pre-order the title from GAME.

    Beta access is still available for any other players who have pre-ordered it from a different retailer, regardless of region.

  • DRIVECLUB Release Date Finally Revealed

    DRIVECLUB release dateDRIVECLUB was originally planned as a launch window title for the PlayStation 4, and it was definitely one of the few games that really interested a large portion of gamers. However, since then it has been delayed at least a couple of times, and it's left a lot of us a little bit disappointed.

    Luckily Sony never gave up on the project though, and finally we now have details on the final release date for DRIVECLUB. In a new trailer, the gorgeous world of DRIVECLUB is shown off to viewers, and the release date for the title is then revealed near the end of the video.

    Sony and Evolution Studios revealed in the new trailer that DRIVECLUB will be released on October 8th, and this time round it sounds like they are actually going to stick to that date.

    After DRIVECLUB was first pushed back, Sony revealed that the game should have been released in early 2014, but that date was then cancelled again. The October 8th date is the first official date revealed after that point, so it's likely Sony and Evolution Studios have everything set on track for that date.

    Shuhei Yoshida revealed a bit of information on the PlayStation blog about the big DRIVECLUB delays, stating that "We planned for the game to be ready for early 2014 and are committed to delivering on our ambitious promise of creating a truly innovative, socially connected racing game. The problem with being ambitious is you have to be prepared to accept there will be challenges along the way. What DRIVECLUB offers has not been previously achieved in this category, and, because of this, the team needed more time to give you the game you're waiting for."

    Are you looking forward to DRIVECLUB now that we have a final official release date?

  • Call of Duty Advanced Warfare Announced

    COD Advanced WarfareThe next Call of Duty game that is planned for release this year has just been revealed, and so far it's looking pretty interesting. As we know at this point, the Call of Duty title for 2014 has been developed by a new developer, Sledgehammer Games, and they have been working on it for around 3 years now.

    The new Call of Duty title will focus on advanced future combat, and has been titled Advanced Warfare. In Advanced Warfare we can expect to see advanced weaponry, aircraft and drones, as well as a wide variety of other technical gear, including wearable exoskeletons that makes Call of Duty comparable with something out of Halo or Dead Space.

    Personally, I think this is a pretty interesting direction for Sledgehammer to take, but seeing as Black Ops has been touching on 'future combat' a little bit already, it isn't entirely surprising. Hopefully there will be enough new content to refresh the series a little.

    Another interesting thing about Advanced Warfare is that Kevin Spacey has been chosen to voice the bad guy, who can be heard in the Advanced Warfare reveal trailer. Whilst a lot of Call of Duty's popularity has branched off from the multiplayer experience, Sledgehammer Games seem pretty enthusiastic to offer a great singleplayer experience this time round.

    Sledgehammer will be focusing on just the PC, PS4 and Xbox One versions of the title, however another development studio will be working on a last gen version for the PS3 and Xbox 360.

  • PS Plus May Lineup Revealed

    ps plus may lineupThe EU free game lineup for PlayStation Plus subscribers has been revealed, and the available games will be put live from April 30th till the end of May. It seems Sony are constantly trying to offer more and more for their subscribers, and this month things are looking pretty special.

    First up for the PlayStation 4 this month is Stick it to The Man, a strange and wacky title that probably wouldn't be something you'd consider buying, but surprisingly has a few hours worth of fun content in.

    On the PlayStation 3, Payday 2 will be made available for free this month. In Payday 2, players can team up with their friends to complete bank robberies, jewelry store heists, and much more. The game is fairly new and is definitely worth checking out. After collecting stolen goods, you can transfer the cash to your in-game account and purchase new weapons, gear and unlock special abilities.

    Puppeteer has also been made available for free in May - this title follows the story of a young boy who has been transformed into a puppet, loses his head, and goes on a journey to find it again. The game offers a variety of different platformer-style missions.

    Finally, the PS Vita has been packed with two interesting titles. The first, and probably most interesting free game this month is Muramasa, a fun side-scrolling action RPG title. The second PS Vita title is a fun and quirky golf game called Everybody's Golf.

    The US lineup has not been revealed yet, but it is likely that it will share a similar set of games to that of the EU lineup.

  • Unreal Engine 4 Powered Thriller Coming to PS4

    without memory ps4From what we've seen the Unreal Engine 4 looks absolutely stunning. Unreal Engine 3 has been used for years, and despite now being many years old, games can still look beautiful and run ridiculously smoothly when built on the Unreal Engine.

    Hopefully the 4th rendition of Unreal Engine will be able to render even more life-like graphics whilst still staying smooth and easy on the eyes in terms of frame rate and overall performance.

    We'll probably see dozens of Unreal Engine 4 powered games in the near future, and a brand new one that has just popped up is a thriller title by the name of Without Memory. This particular title is being developed by a Russian development studio by the name of Dinosaurum Games, and it is planned for a release some time in 2016.

    In Without Memory, the player will follow the story of a girl who awoke in the middle of a forest without any prior memories, and according to Dinosaurum Games, this 'interactive thriller' will have tens of endings.

    It looks like Without Memory will offer a similar play experience to Quantic Dream's Beyond: Two Souls, however it's sounds like Dinosaurum Games will make sure the player feels as if their choices really matter, which is something that Beyond: Two Souls failed to capture.

    2016 is still quite far away though, but hopefully we will hear more about Without Memory fairly soon. Perhaps we'll even see some kind of cinematic reveal at this year's E3.

  • New Destiny Gameplay Video Shared By Bungie

    destiny class gameplayBungie has just released a 7 minute long gameplay video of Destiny, showcasing real in-game footage of the title, and it's certainly got some gamers hyped.

    At first look, the similarities between Bungie's previous game series, Halo, and Destiny can be easily spotted. The overall experience that we've come to love was never a Halo experience, it was a Bungie experience.

    The new gameplay video is filled with the same cinematic backgrounds every Halo game has been renowned for, and the overall world design feels very reminiscent of various scenes from the Halo universe. Even the overall AI combat system in Destiny feels slightly similar to a firefight between a group of Elites and Grunts, and despite these similarities, Destiny has enough to spark curiosity among gamers.

    If you were to sum up Destiny in as small amount of words as possible, I think it would be best described as a Borderlands-Halo hybrid - the beauty of Bungie is still around every corner, but it's filled with progressive leveling, unlockable abilities and gear worth fighting for, making it a game focused on your own story, whilst lightly touching on the lore of the land as it is explored.

    It is of course a game that is centered around co-operative interactions, and whilst it is far from being an MMO, Destiny does offer an immersive world that you and your friends can explore together. It will be interesting to see what kind of reception Destiny gets upon it's launch later this year.

    You can check the gameplay video out here.

  • Second Expansion Could Come to Diablo 3

    diablo 3 second expansionDiablo 3 took off to a rocky start, but since it's console adaptation, and the changes that went into the game since the 2.0 patch, the game is now enjoyed by a large audience worldwide. The first expansion pack, Reaper of Souls, was quite a success, and it has helped it to propel the game forwards in terms of gameplay and content quality.

    However, many Diablo 3 players have now made their way through the content available in the Reaper of Souls expansion, and that has left a lot of players without much left to do in the game.

    Good news if you happen to fall into that crowd, because Blizzard have been looking into the possibilities of releasing another expansion pack for Diablo 3 in the near future. Whilst it hasn't been confirmed yet, Blizzard are taking player's opinions and using this to gauge whether a second expansion pack is needed for the latest Diablo game.

    The development studio working on Diablo 3 have stated that they are "still evaluating" future possibilities for the franchise, but after Diablo's recent success, it would make sense that Blizzard have at least something in plan in terms of new gameplay content.

    We'll have to wait to see whether Blizzard acts on this. Hopefully we will see another expansion for Diablo 3 fairly soon, but if not, there's always the possibility of a completely new title for the franchise, although this would admittedly take a lot longer to reach our consoles.

  • Destiny Footage Shows Three Classes in Action

    destiny gameplay videoLast week we mentioned that Destiny isn't too far away from being ready to ship out, and despite all of the waiting, it really isn't all that long before we'll all be able to get our hands on it. Bungie has always been one of my favorite games developers, so for me it's exciting to see where Destiny goes.

    Recently Bungie released three separate videos showing off all three classes in Destiny with in-game footage, and whilst each video only lasted about 20 seconds, they pretty clearly showed what kind of experience we can expect from the combat in Destiny.

    In Destiny, the three classes available are the Titan, the Warlock and the Hunter. Each class falls into a different role in co-op situations, and with most class based games, each class has their advantages and disadvantages.

    For example, the Titan is a tank-like class that has a hefty amount of health and armor, but as a trade-off, this character does not have as many damage dealing capabilities.

    On the other end of the spectrum, the Warlock is a weaker class with a wide range of abilities at their disposal. The Hunter is somewhat in between both the Titan and Warlock, and each class has been designed to physically represent their strengths and weaknesses through their overall body structure and posture.

    Destiny will be released for PS3, PS4, Xbox One and Xbox 360 on September 9th. If you'd like to watch the class videos, a YouTube channel has compiled all three videos here.
