  • Loyalty Rewards and Car Details for Forza Horizon 2 Revealed

    forza horizon 2 car listThe Forza franchise has now been out for so long that Turn 10 have managed to amass a rather large collection of cars that they have been able to move into each game quite easily. This year, Forza Horizon 2 is set for launch, and Turn 10 have just revealed details on the amount of cars we can expect from the game, as well as any rewards players can receive from the monthly loyalty program.

    Whilst Turn 10's previous game, Forza Motorsport 5, was filled with microtransactions that allow players to purchase new cars, Forza Horizon 2 has much less of that, and instead has a much larger free collection of cars. In total, players will be given access to a huge range of 210 free vehicles in Forza Horizon 2, and it's expected that future DLC will add even more cars to the game.

    On top of this, Turn 10 revealed the Forza loyalty program that will reward loyal players with monthly awards. Don't worry, you won't have to spend any money to be a part of the Forza loyalty program. Instead, you'll just need to spend a certain amount of time within Forza games each month.

    Players will also be able to complete objectives in Forza Horizon 2 to receive rewards, and in total, five new cars can be rewarded from the loyalty program each month for completing objectives. Forza Horizon 2 will release on the 30th of this month for Xbox One and Xbox 360.

  • Dying Light Release Pushed Forward to January 2015

    dying light release dateWhilst Dying Light was originally planned for release in March, and then delayed to February next year, it has now been pushed forward to a January release, revealed developer Techland.

    The release date for North America has been set for January 27th for all platforms, whilst Europe has received a release date of January 28th for all platforms.

    Dying Light is a new open world first person survival game that mixes elements from games like Dead Island and Left 4 Dead with parkour elements similar to those from Mirror’s Edge. The result is a free-flowing zombie game that focuses on allowing players to use the scenery and environment to their advantage.

    Like Techland's previous IP, Dead Island, Dying Light takes a large focus on melee based combat, and a lot of the weapons that players will come across in the game will be melee based weapons such as knives, clubs or wrenches - pretty much what we've come to expect from any zombie game.

    I personally think the parkour element of Dying Light is enough to make it original, and it should offer players a unique experience within the rather watered down zombie survival genre. However, Techland will have to deliver the game perfectly, otherwise the parkour element may just be left as an overused gimmick that doesn't offer enough to make the parkour actually mechanically viable whilst playing.

    Dying Light will be available for PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC upon it's release on January 27th 2015 in North America and January 28th 2015 in Europe.

  • Destiny Public Events Revealed by Bungie

    destiny public eventsTo keep things interesting for returning players, Bungie has revealed the first of many upcoming in-game events for Destiny, which should challenge players and reward them with special bonuses after completing.

    Last weekend, Bungie released their first in-game dynamic event that focused on PVP - the event added a brand new "Salvage" mode to the game that pitted two teams of three players against each other as they fought for control of different nodes within the map. The nodes must be controlled for a short time before a point is rewarded for each node, and only one node appeared on the map at one time.

    Salvage has since been removed from Destiny, and the next in-game event will be a level 26 raid set on Venus. Vault of Glass will be available from September 16th, and it will put Guardians up against new challenges. Once completed, players have a chance to receive raid set gear and ascendent materials from the new raid.

    There will be another PVP event and another PVE event this month, and a fifth event some in October. So far, details for the last three announced events have not been revealed by Bungie, but it's likely that all will be revealed fairly soon.

    Whilst only five events have been listed, we expect Bungie may have many other similar events lined up for the future of the game, on top of any upcoming DLC packs they plan to release.

  • GTA V for PS4 and Xbox One Dated

    gta v ps4 release dateIt's finally happened, Rockstar have released all there is to know about the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Grand Theft Auto V, including the release date of the next gen version of the game.

    Retailers around the world have now started to put up pre-orders for GTA V next gen for both the PS4 and the Xbox One, in anticipation for the release date, which has been set for November 18th this year.

    GTA V for Xbox One and PS4 will come with a wide range of changes that couldn't make it into the original game due to hardware limitations of the previous generation of consoles. Some of the new changes include new weapons, new vehicles and new activities, as well as increased wildlife and a new and improved foliage and terrain system.

    There will also be denser traffic in GTA V for PS4 and Xbox One, making car chases in the city even more intense, and players will notice changes to the weather and vehicle damage systems in-game.

    There will also be an extra 100 songs added to the GTA radio, and the online player count is reportedly being increased to 30 players per server. All of the previously created content and GTA Online gameplay patches for GTA V will be ported over to the new versions of the game, and players will be rewarded with $500,000 spending cash for both the story mode and online mode.

    Whilst the PS4 and Xbox One versions are set for release on November 18th, the PC version of GTA V is set for a release in January 2015.

  • Microsoft Plans to Buy Mojang

    microsoft mojangIt seems that nobody can escape acquisition these days - if you're a successful business, and you manage to get the spotlight on you, chances are somebody like Google, Microsoft or Amazon will swoop down and offer a pricey deal to purchase your entire business.

    Recently, Twitch was acquired by Amazon for $970 million, and now there are rumors circulating that Microsoft is looking to acquire Mojang, the creators of the ever-popular Minecraft.

    Whilst nothing is definitely confirmed at this point, it is looking likely that Microsoft are looking into paying whatever they can to get hold of Minecraft, including a cash payment upwards of $2.5 billion.

    The deciding factor will come down to whether the current Minecraft owners will be willing to give up their rights to the game for a huge cash sum. Markus "Notch" Persson, the original creator of Minecraft has already stated in the past that he has made enough money from Minecraft, but due to changes in Mojang, it may not be down to Notch to sell the company.

    If Microsoft do purchase Mojang, it could mean we'll see more Minecraft branded toys, TV content or other entertainment mediums that can help Microsoft boost the revenue from the game. It's also possible that Microsoft may bring Minecraft to Windows Phone - as it stands now, Mojang have not developed a Pocket Edition version of Minecraft for Windows Phone due to the "tiny" market share Windows Phone currently holds.

  • Dead or Alive 5: Last Round Confirmed for PS4 and Xbox One

    dead or alive 5 last round - CopyIt looks like everybody is jumping on the 'port-your-games-to-the-new-gen' band wagon, including Team Ninja, who have confirmed that they plan to bring Dead or Alive 5: Last Round to the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One, despite it being a game that released two years ago.

    Dead Or Alive 5: Last Round will come with a range of improvements, including graphical changes, and most likely a frame rate and resolution increase for the PS4 and the Xbox One.

    Dead Or Alive 5: Last Round will release for the PS3 and Xbox 360 too, however only a digital version will be available for last gen consoles, whilst both a physical and a digital version will be available for the Xbox One and PS4.

    Whilst there is no concrete release date for Dead Or Alive 5: Last Round, Team Ninja have mentioned that it will make it's way to the world in Spring 2015 for all four Sony and Microsoft consoles currently in the spotlight.

    DOA 5: Last Round will include characters that didn't make it into the original release, including Ryu Hayabusa, perhaps one of the most popular characters in the entire franchise. In summary, the full character lineup for Last Round will include Ayane, Bass, Bayman, Brad Wong, Kokoro Hayabusa, Hayate, Kasumi, Rig, Momiji, Leon, Lisa, Tina, Jann Lee, Hitomi, Leifang, Christie, Eliot, Leon, Gen Fu, Zack, Helena, Marie Rose, Phase 4, Nyotengu as well as Sarah Bryant, Akira, Pai and Jacky from the Virtua Fighter series.

  • New Xperia Z3 Will Have DriveClub Remote Play Features

    xperia z3 driveclub remote play - CopyAt IFA this year, Sony revealed their brand new Xperia Z3, a newly upgraded Android smartphone with new hardware and software features. One of the most interesting additions to the Xperia Z3, and especially for us here at Evil Controllers, was the inclusion of remote play for the Xperia Z3.

    Remote play is already a feature that has been made available on the PS Vita, but since the Xperia Play which released a few years ago, we've not seen any PlayStation-Xperia crossovers since.

    The remote play feature will allow players to play PlayStation 4 games from their Xperia Z3, and through Bluetooth pairing, they will also be able to connect up their DualShock 4 controller to their Xperia smartphone too.

    Whilst remote play will allow players to play any game on their Xperia Z3, a new trailer focuses on DriveClub, and the remote play can be seen in action within the trailer. The new remote play features will also be made available for the Xperia Z3 tablet, and the Xperia Z3 Compact.

    Sony have not yet given any details on whether previously release Android smartphones and tablets will release the same remote play treatment, but it would make sense that Sony reserve it for their newest devices to help bring sales to their new Android lineup.

    This is definitely a good move by Sony in my opinion, and it will open up more possibilities for the average player within the PlayStation 4 gaming ecosystem.

  • Mortal Kombat X Receives Release date and Pre-order Details

    mortal kombat x - CopyMore details for the upcoming Mortal Kombat X have been revealed by Warner Bros. including a confirmed release date and some information on the benefits of pre-ordering the game today.

    Firstly, Warner Bros. have revealed that Mortal Kombat X has been set for release on April 14, 2015, and the game will be readily available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and the PC at this date.

    Secondly, Warner Bros. mentioned that players who pre-order Mortal Kombat X before it's release date will receive Goro, an additional character for the game. Goro is a four armed character who first appeared in the original Mortal Kombat as a non-playable boss.

    So far, it's unclear whether Goro will be made available to those who do not pre-order at some point after the release of Mortal Kombat X, or whether Goro will remain as an exclusive for early adopters. Goro is a pretty important character in the Mortal Kombat series, so it would be a shame if he was left as an exclusive to those who pre-order. It would also seem unfair if Goro proved to be a better character than most other characters that those who did not pre-order would be able to choose from.

    Either way, we're bound to hear more about the characters that will be present in Mortal Kombat X, the DLC planned, and further details on the pre-order bonus as we near the release date of the game, which will be in seven months time.

  • The Last of Us Remastered Sold 1 Million Copies

    last of us remastered sales - CopyIf you've ever been anywhere near any video game retail stores recently, you've probably seen The Last of Us Remastered quickly jump to the top of the PlayStation 4 charts, so it's unlikely you'd be surprised to hear that the remastered PS4 version of the The Last of Us has managed to sell over 1 million copies already.

    The original The Last of Us managed to sell over 7 million copies on the PlayStation 3, and the Remastered version of the PS4 may be able to get close to that in the coming months. Unsurprisingly, the Last of Us Remastered managed to pull in 632,000 copies in it's first week, whilst The Last of Us sold a little over double that in the same period at 1.3 million copies worldwide.

    If The Last of Us Remastered continues to sell at the same pace it is now, it's possible the two games will manage to reach a combined sale of 10 million copies worldwide, which would be pretty impressive considering the game is a PlayStation exclusive.

    Whilst it's possible The Last of Us 2 could come about, Naughty Dog are currently working on creating a movie adaptation of the game. Before that though, we can expect to see Uncharted 4 for the PlayStation 4. Despite a final date for Uncharted not being revealed as of yet, Uncharted 4 has been predicted to release at some point in 2015, and will remain to be a PlayStation 4 exclusive.

  • Destiny Free Last-Gen Promotion Revealed

    destiny last gen upgrade - CopyIt has been revealed that Bungie plan to provide a promotion to make it easier for those who own both a new and an old gen console.

    In simple terms, players who purchase either the Xbox 360 version or the PlayStation version of Destiny will be able to upgrade to a new console in the future at no cost. Many developers have provided discounted 'upgrade' promotions that usually allow a player to purchase a PS4 or Xbox One copy of a game for a discounted price, as long as they own the same game for either the PS3 or Xbox 360 respectively. This is the first time a developer has offered a game upgrade for free, which is pretty awesome.

    There are a few rules to the free Destiny promotion - firstly, players must choose to upgrade before January 2015, as the promotion will end after this period, and secondly, players will only be given a digital version of the game to download from either the Xbox Games store or the PSN marketplace.

    Players will also only be able to use the promotion within the same console family. For example, PS3 players will only be able to grab a free version for the PS4, and Xbox 360 players will only be able to grab a free version for the Xbox One.

    Finally, players who upgrade will be able to carry their stats over to their new console as long as they use the same gamer profile for both consoles.
