  • Upcoming Battlefield 4 DLC Will be Free

    battlefield hardline dlcBattlefield 4 has already had a season pass but DICE aren't quite done with developing content for the game just yet. However, instead of charging players extra on top of all the other additional DLC costs already tied onto Battlefield 4, DICE has made the noble choice to release all of the future DLC content for free.

    Whilst previous DLC will still cost players the same it does today, any new content created by DICE and released for Battlefield 4 from this day forwards will be absolutely free to all players.

    So far there are a lot of details that haven't been shared by DICE, but we do know that they are working on some new maps, including night time maps. The night maps should be variants of previously released maps. So far we already know that Siege of Shanghai, Zavod 311, and Golmud Railway will be receiving nighttime variants. A new community-made map is also in the works and should be released for free in the not too distant future.

    A new patch is planned for this Spring and it will come with some new content too. As well as fixing up some bugs, the Spring patch will add in five new weapons and the Gunmaster game mode.

    For those new to the Battlefield series, Gunmaster plays out just like other Gun Games. You'll start with one weapon and each kill will reward you with a new weapon. There are seventeen weapons to get through until you finally get given the knife. A knife kill will end the game.

  • DICE Explains Why There are no Battlefront Space Battles

    no battlefront space battlesNo space battles. Star Wars Battlefront with no space battles. I found myself saying this over and over when I first heard it, but as the idea sank in, I've become more accepting of the idea. I'm not entirely convinced Battlefront by DICE will be a great game, but I'm ready to see what they make of it.

    According to DICE, there were some interesting design choices made that decided the fate of space battles in Battlefront. DICE's Patrick Bach revealed the following statement in an interview with Official PlayStation Magazine UK.

    "We want players to stay in the same environment - we don't want players to fly off and do something over *here.* It's about the Battlefront experience, so we want to keep you in-atmosphere and fighting with the infantry."

    The one part about this sentence that doesn't seem to make sense to me is "It's about the Battlefront experience." DICE seem to be doing a lot to the franchise to take it away from the original Battlefront experience, and by removing space battles, this takes DICE's reimagination of the game even further from the Battlefront we've come to know and love.

    I doubt Battlefront will inherently be a bad game, but DICE really have to be careful with how they treat the IP. Let's hope that Battlefront turns out to be the game we've all dreamt of when it releases in April next year. Hopefully we'll see a bit more of Battlefront, including some gameplay, at E3 later this year.

  • New Assassin's Creed Detailed

    new assassin’s creedUnsurprisingly, Ubisoft is gearing up to announce a brand new Assassin's Creed title. Last week, invitations for a world premiere revealing for the next Assassin's Creed title were sent out to the press. The new Assassin's Creed game will be revealed on Tuesday.

    Previous rumors suggested that the new Assassin's Creed game was going to be called Victory. This seemed like a fitting name at the time - the next game in the franchise is expected to be set in Victorian London. However, new rumors are suggesting that the new Assassin's Creed title will instead be called Syndicate.

    We're not sure why Ubisoft would choose this name over Victory but we're bound to find out more at the world premiere revealing. If you think back to the last Assassin's Creed game, Unity, the name Syndicate seems more fitting, even though it may not have any real correlation with the actual game content or story.

    Unity was released last year and it was met with a lot of distaste from critics and the gaming community as a whole. It wasn't exactly a bad game - it was just badly made. It had too many bugs, glitches and game problems that made it quite unplayable for a long time.

    Hopefully Ubisoft has learned from their mistakes. We should hopefully learn more about Assassin's Creed Syndicate and its release date later this week. We'll make sure to keep you updated as new information comes in.

  • Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 Announced

    tony hawks pro skater 5At long last, Activision has finally confirmed that a new Tony Hawk game is coming and they've even given some details about the game along with it. The new Tony Hawk has been titled Pro Skater 5.

    As the name suggests, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 will follow on from the first four original games in the franchise. Taking the game back to it's roots, we're bound to see game mechanics and features that were dropped out of the newer titles.

    Tony Hawk himself has been suggesting for a while that a new Tony Hawk game is in the works but this is the first time we've heard anything from Activision.

    The studio responsible for the development of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 is Robomodo. Whilst they're by no means a bad development studio, they're perhaps best known for their other Tony Hawk titles, Shred and Ride. Robomodo also created the HD remake of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater.

    It will be interesting to see what Robomodo can do with Pro Skater 5. They are probably the most qualified team in the world right now to be given the job of bringing Tony Hawk back to life, but we've not really seen if Robomodo can do a good job at making a "proper" Tony Hawk game yet.

    So far we do not know anything about a release date for Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5. A lot of the details have been saved for exclusive features for various publications so we'll have to wait a little while before we can find out more.

  • More Black Ops 3 Details Explained

    black ops 3 details multiplayerTreyarch just keep spilling the beans on Black Ops 3, which is great because the game sounds like it’s going to be a lot different to previous games developed by them. Recently, Treyarch gave details on the Black Ops 3 Pick 10 system, ADS mechanics and more.

    In Black Ops 2, the Pick 10 system was hugely praised by the COD community. Thankfully the Pick 10 system will be returning to Black Ops 3. Everything is mostly the same with the Pick 10 system, but there have been a few changes made to the way it works.

    Firstly, the Wildcards will still be in Black Ops 3. Players can equip up to six different Wildcards but each Wildcard will take up a certain amount of points as per usual.

    Interestingly, the entire attachment system will be different in Black Ops 3. Weapon optics are now placed in their own separate slot. If you use the right Wildcards you can equip up to five attachments onto a primary weapon, as well as an optic. Secondary weapons can have up to two attachments and an optic.

    You can create your own weapons, attachments attached, in the new Gunsmith feature that will be added to Black Ops 3.

    ADS has also been improved in Black Ops 3 so that aiming down the sights of a sniper is a lot smoother. Apparently powerful snipers will be balanced slightly to adjust to these new changes.

  • Banjo Kazooie Successor Hits Kickstarter

    banjo kazooie yooka layleeA successor to the ever popular Banjo Kazooie franchise hit Kickstarter and it blew up the internet.

    We've all been wanting a new (decent) Banjo Kazooie game for years but it seems that Rare either has no interest or they've been too busy on other projects such as Kinect Sports Rivals. Thankfully a team of ex-Rare employees has banded together to make a development company called Playtonic Games and they are set to bring life to Banjo Kazooie again.

    Playtonic Games recently posted up a Kickstarter page for their upcoming game. Named Yooka-Laylee, the game will feature the same 3D buddy-duo platformer experience that made Banjo Kazooie so popular. Yooka-Laylee will be filled with all sorts of collectibles for players to find in the world. This time round, collectibles will play a meaningful part in the way new areas of the world are opened up.

    The audio and art team working on Playtonic Games are also going for a very Banjo Kazooie-esque theme and the main environment artist is Steven Hurst, the same guy responsible for the environments in Banjo Kazooie and Viva Pinata.

    Perhaps the most amazing of all so far is the Kickstarter goal for Yooka-Laylee. Playtonic Games were originally hoping to reach $270,000 to fund the development of the game. Within just a few days the funding has already reached close to 2 million and there is still over 30 days left to go. It'll be interesting to see just how much Playtonic Games can raise for Yooka-Laylee.

  • Silent Hills has Been Cancelled

    It was almost expected at this point but unfortunately Konami has cancelled the development for Silent Hills and much to our dismay the game will no longer be released.

    The development studios behind Silent Hills have always dealt with internal problems it seems, and as a result the latest Silent Hills game will never see the light of day. In a brief statement, Konami said, "Konami is committed to new Silent Hill titles, however the embryonic 'Silent Hills' project developed with Guillermo del Toro and featuring the likeness of Norman Reedus will not be continued,"

    What's interesting about this is that Konami still aren't putting down the Silent Hills IP for good. This may mean that we could see a Silent Hills game from Konami in the future. The likelihood of that happening is quite slim at this point though. The studio doesn't exactly look in great shape at this point, especially after cutting out Hideo Kojima from the equation.

    Norman Reedus from The Walking Dead was also set to star in Silent Hills as the main protagonist but since the game has now been cancelled his contract period with him has expired.

    Reedus posted on Twitter mentioning the cancellation of Silent Hills as well.

    "Super bummed about this was really looking forward to it. Hopefully it'll come back around. Sorry everyone."

    Thankfully we are still going to be getting Metal Gear Solid V but if it were still a year or two away from development there's a good chance that it could have been cancelled as well.

  • Details about $40 Arkham Knight Season Pass Released

    arkham knight season passIf you've been keeping up with the latest news about Batman Arkham Knight you may already be aware that Warner Bros. will be releasing a $40 season pass to go along with the game.

    Understandably, a lot of fans of the series have been very frustrated with this price. Considering that most season passes are more often closer to $20, Warner Bros. has a lot of explaining to do.

    Fortunately the publisher did actually come out and reveal details behind why the season pass costs so much. Whilst they didn't reveal that much about the upcoming DLC for Batman Arkham Knight, they did do a basic rundown of what to expect from it.

    On a post on their Facebook page, Warner Bros. said "We've heard from our community that you want more information on what we'll be delivering in the Season Pass. While we aren't ready to unveil every aspect of the content we'll be developing, we would like to share more details now to give you a better sense of the scope of the Season Pass."

    Below, the details that Warner Bros. provided have been displayed.

    Batgirl: A Matter of Family - An all new prequel story expansion in an entirely new location where you play as Batgirl for the very first time in the Arkham series - check out the first render of Batgirl.

    The Season of Infamy - Play as Batman in all new story missions featuring legendary super-villains invading Gotham City, with new story arcs, missions and gameplay features.

    Gotham City Stories - Play as Batman's key allies in narrative missions extending their storylines, from both before and after the events in Batman: Arkham Knight.

    Legendary Batmobiles with Themed Tracks - Drive the most iconic Batmobiles from Batman's 75-year history, on custom-built race tracks, each themed to that Batmobile's specific era. Every Batmobile will be drivable across every race track.

    Crimefighter Challenge Maps - Engage in a series of new challenge maps utilizing the unique play styles of Batman and his allies.

    Character Skins - A variety of skins from across the eras for Batman, Robin, Nightwing and Catwoman.

    Do you think Warner Bros. should get away with putting the season pass for Arkham Knight up for $40?

  • Rare Planning to Reveal New Game at E3

    rare new game e3Everybody's interest for Rare died out a little bit when they were hired to make Kinect games for the Xbox 360, but as soon as they're given a bit more creative freedom again I'm sure the world will be looking their way.

    Let's hope that's the case with this year's E3 expo, because according to Rare's studio creative director, Simon Woodroffe, "E3 will tell the world what Gregg Mayles new project is about."

    As you can imagine, Simon couldn't go too far into details about the upcoming game and he made sure he didn't give too much away. Simon did however Tweet the following:

    "All I can give here is a quote from the man himself, 'This is more fun than anything we've ever done.'"

    Both Simon Woodroffe and Gregg Mayles have been responsible for putting their hearts into games like Donkey Kong Country and Viva Pinata and those were definitely some very fun games. If Rare is suggesting that their next game is going to be more fun than anything they've ever done, then that suggests that we could be in for a very nice surprise.

    There are so many different IP under Rare's control and their creative freedom always gives them the opportunity to create completely new experience as well. At this point I really couldn't even guess what to expect from Rare. All I can say is bring on E3 - This year's event is going to be insane.
