  • Uncharted Style Han Solo Game May be In the Works

    han solo gameDisney's purchase of Lucasarts may have caused a few upcoming Star Wars games to be canned, but it looks like the Star Wars name may now be force pushed further into the industry as rumors suggest Disney are gearing up to release another game from the same universe.

    According to the rumors circulating around the supposed Star Wars game, the new title will feature Han Solo as the protagonist. Whilst we know little about the gameplay of the rumored Han Solo game, many believe that the title may end up something a little like the Uncharted series.

    If that is the case, we sure can expect some interesting 3D platforming as well as a lot of explosive action, and maybe a Wookie or two along the way as well. The source of the rumors also suggest that part of the same team currently working on Battlefield Hardline will move over to working on the Han Solo game.

    DICE already has ties with the Star Wars universe and they are currently working on the new gen Battlefront title, but the latest Battlefield game is mostly under the control of another company, Visceral Games.

    Visceral Games do have experience with third person shooters, and previous rumors have suggested that the company are currently working on an "untitled Star Wars" game. There’s certainly a little bit of doubt in us about the likelihood of a Han Solo game appearing, but we’re hoping it could come to light. We expect Visceral could do a pretty good job with it.

  • Call of Duty World at War 2 Rumored

    world at war 2It's always best to be a little skeptical at this time of the year. Around this time, we usually start to hear a thing or two about the next Call of Duty game, but across multiple development teams, it's easy for false information to start circulating.

    With that being said, a current rumor spreading across the internet suggests that the next Call of Duty game will be a sequel to the original World at War. Before we get into the likelihood of such a thing happening or not, I just have to say that a world war game would be an incredibly refreshing change, and I'd absolutely love to see such a game reach the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4.

    In reality though, we can't quite be sure if World at War will be the next Call of Duty game or not. The leak comes from a fairly unreputable source on Twitter. Despite this, it has caused quite a big stir up in the community, and the same leaker has posted similar 'Call of Duty leaks' in the past.

    The trouble is that another insider has denied that such a game will ever come to light, especially not this year. But it's hard to know who to trust - the real industry insider, who may or may not be trying to keep things under wraps, or the fairly unknown leaker who suggests the next game will indeed by World at War 2?

    All we can do is wait for more information. If the rumors are to be trusted, we'll find out more about World at War 2 in May this year.

  • DriveClub Japan DLC Released

    driveclub japan dlcDriveClub developers Evolution Studios have taken to social media to announce a brand new DLC pack that has just launched for their game. The DLC pack, named DriveClub Japan, features a variety of tracks located in Japan.

    What’s most exciting about the news from all this though is that the DLC pack will be put up for free, and all players will be able to get in game and download it. Evolution Studios seem to be pretty thankful of the community feedback at the moment, and as a result it looks like the Japan DLC will be our thank you gift.

    In a post on their Facebook page, Evolution Studios wrote, "Along with our own research and gameplay data analysis, your input has been a big help in shaping all of the tracks we're developing for Japan. Especially the many, many requests for an epic point-to-point like this and for wider tracks to make fighting for position less frustrating, particularly in online races."

    On top of the new free Japan DLC pack, Evolution Studios have confirmed that an expansion pack will be releasing later in January. The second expansion pack for January has been named the Apex expansion, and will fall into the season pass. This pack includes a bunch of new cars, such as the Jaguar C-X75 Concept, Enzo Ferrari and Caterham R500 Superlight.

    Are you happy to hear that Evolution Studios are handing out free DriveClub DLC? Once you’ve managed to try out the Japan tracks, feel free to stop by here and let us know your thoughts on them.

  • MGSV May Be "Biggest Game" According to Troy Baker

    metal gear solid vIn Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Troy Baker voice acts for Ocelot, one of the games characters. Whilst Baker may not be the biggest game nerd in the world, he’s certainly played his fair share of games, and he’s got a lot to say about Metal Gear Solid V.

    In an interview, Troy Baker revealed details about the size of Metal Gear Solid, suggesting that players will be really surprised at how different the game will be to previous titles in the franchise. "I'm anxious to see how people will look at this new Metal Gear, because it's really different. It fits perfectly within the rest of the franchise, and in same ways I think It's going to be really good, but I'm really curious to see what people think."

    Troy Baker then went on to mention that it may even be the "biggest game" he has ever seen. "Just in terms of everything that you can do. Skyrim looks like an afternoon playpen next to it. It's massive. It's absolutely massive in what you can do."

    We all know Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain was planned to be pretty big, but will it really trump Skyrim in size and content? If that is the case, we really have got a treat in store for us when the game releases.

    I'm personally very excited to give Kojima's new project a try. It's clear that he and everyone that has worked on MGSV so far has poured in a huge amount of heart and passion into the game, something that many AAA games feel lacking of these days.

  • Forza Motorsport 6 Is Coming

    forza motorsport 6It looks like Turn 10 have been busy. The next iteration in the lineup of Forza Motorsport games has been announced. Forza Motorsport 6 will be launching exclusively on Xbox One, and Microsoft have teamed up with Ford to give the new Ford GT a starring role in the game.

    Whilst we weren't expecting such an early announcement of Forza 6, Microsoft took to the North American International Auto Show to announce the new game, and it's clear that the Ford GT will be the car to feature on the cover of the upcoming game by Turn 10.

    The release of Forza Motorsport 6 will mark the tenth year anniversary of the game series, so as you can imagine, Turn 10 are feeling like doing something pretty special with the game. Alan Hartman, studio manager for Turn 10 mentioned that, "When we first were doing these, it would be kind of like, 'Hey please, can we have that new car you showed in Detroit?' That's where we were back 10 years ago. But over the last three or four years, the involvement with the manufacturers has really changed. They have really come to recognize that this is a very important venue for them,"

    So as you can imagine, manufacturers are now reaching out to games developers like Turn 10 to have their vehicles featured in their racing games. I think it's a nice transition in the game industry, and it shows that games are just enough of a powerful medium to translate ideas and products like any other.

    Let's just hope this new deal with Ford will allow Turn 10 to put more into the base game and less into extra DLC content like they have done with Forza Motorsport 5.

  • New Battlefield Hardline Details Unveiled

    battlefield hardline mapsEA has just revealed a bunch of new bits of information about their upcoming game, Battlefield Hardline, including details about new maps, weapons and equipment.

    Firstly, the two newly announced maps have been named as Bloodout and Hollywood Hills. As you can imagine, the latter of these two maps places players in a large Hollywood villa. Whilst the level is considerably smaller than some others, the large size of the villa will give players enough space to breathe in.

    The other map, Bloodout, is a set of inner city streets based on real life Los Angeles. The difference between Battlefield Hardline's depiction of LA and the real life LA is that there is a lot more debris, wrecked cars and scrap in Battlefield, as can be expected.

    In other news, Steve Papoutsis, Vice president of Visceral Games and Battlefield Hardline, revealed that there will be a total of 51 weapons and 38 gadgets in Battlefield Hardline. Considering players have access to primary and special weapons, I'd expect we'd be left with a lineup of around 20 different primary weapons to pick from.

    On top of the large variety of weapons, a massive 27 new vehicles are being added to Hardline, although a large pool of these may be varying civilian vehicles or variations of vehicles already in the Battlefield franchise.

    Are you excited to hear about all of the new features in Battlefield Hardline? The game will be releasing on March 17th, so we haven't got too long to wait.

  • Sniper 3 Ultimate Edition Available for Pre-order

    sniper 3 ultimate editionIf you're a fan of the Sniper franchise, you may want to look into picking up the Sniper 3 Ultimate Edition. The extended collector's edition of the game will include various extra digital features that are not available with the base game.

    Unfortunately, there will not be any additional physical content for the Ultimate Edition of Sniper 3, so in a sense, purchasing the Ultimate Edition serves as buying the season pass for the game.

    Inside of the Ultimate Edition, players will receive a 3 part 'Save Churchill' DLC. On top of the DLC, six different weapons packs will be included. The weapons packs available in the Sniper 3 Ultimate Edition have been listed below.

    Hunter Weapons Pack
    Camouflage Weapons Pack
    Patriot Weapons Pack
    Sniper Rifles Weapons Pack
    Axis Weapons Pack
    Eastern Front Weapons Pack

    Additionally to the above content, the Ultimate pack will allow players to access a few new multiplayer modes, including The Shooting Range for single player, the Twilight Strike Overwatch Mission for co-op play, and Capture the Flag for multiplayer.

    Finally, the Ultimate Edition will receive new multiplayer maps, all six of which have been listed.

    Night Watch
    Outpost Canyon
    Plantation
    Lost Valley
    Airstrip
    Fracture

    I find it a little odd that some of this content hasn't been included in the base game, and whilst it's nice to have an easy-access package to all of the Sniper 3 DLC, it's a shame that modes like capture the flag or the Twilight Strike Overwatch mission aren't already available for free.

  • Xbox One Neverwinter Closed Beta Planned for February

    xbox one neverwinterWhilst Zenimax Studios have been busy preparing the release of the Elder Scrolls Online for the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One, another MMO developer has been working on something else that could completely ruin the release of the ESO.

    The game in question is Neverwinter, a free to play MMO that landed on the PC in 2013. In February this year, the same Neverwinter that made it to PC will be coming to the Xbox One in the form of a closed beta.

    The closed beta will be accessible to a limited amount of players, chosen from a pool of players who have signed up for beta access on the Neverwinter website. The beta will last for three days and will begin on the 5th of February.

    Whilst Neverwinter is free to play, an Xbox Live Gold membership will be required to play it. In the new version of Neverwinter, aimed for consoles, the game will be compatible with the Xbox friends list so players can easily team up together for dungeons, quests or PVP.

    On top of the friends integration, Neverwinter for the Xbox One will receive a control revamp that will suit the Xbox One controller. Considering that the game is coming from the PC, which has access to multiple keys and bindings, it will be interesting to see how well the Neverwinter developers managed to port over the controls to the Xbox.

    Perhaps even more interesting is the fact that Neverwinter will be the first free to play MMO available on consoles that has been released in the last three years.

  • The Order: 1866 Making Progress With New Screenshots

    The order 1866 screenshotsThe Order: 1866 is currently sitting as one of the most anticipated PS4 exclusives for 2015, but despite the hype, many gamers are starting to wonder whether the game will end up as impressive as it was first made out to be.

    One thing is for sure is that the game will look gorgeous. Recently, a collection of new screenshots were released, showing off in-game scenes from The Order: 1866, and it's certainly clear to see that the game is looking better than it has in any previous builds.

    On top of a overall visual overhaul, it seems like the character models have been reworked to hold even more detail, and various special effects like motion blur and changes to lighting have been made.

    For those unaware, The Order: 1866 is an upcoming PS4 exclusive title that will feature cover based combat. The game has been compared to Gears of War in terms of gameplay, whilst the story and setting of the game is set right within the Victorian era.

    As you can expect, The Order: 1866 will be filled with all sorts of flintlock rifles and other Victorian weaponry. Currently, the game has been set for a February 20th release and it's looking more and more likely that this will be the final date.

    In fact, The Order: 1866 has just gone gold, meaning that the full game is complete and ready for shipping. If you want to check out the new trailer celebrating the completion of The Order: 1866, you can do so here.

  • New Master Chief Collection Patch Releasing Soon

    Master Chief Collection PatchA new patch was planned to roll out for the Master Chief Collection last week but it has since been delayed. The patch had been mentioned to include some fixes to matchmaking whilst adding some general tweaks to multiplayer, campaigns and interfaces.
