  • Kingdom Under Fire II PS4 Will Have Better Graphics than PC Version

    kingdom under fire ps4With all the recent talk about the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One's great hardware capabilities, it's honestly been a little disappointing playing through the current gen's roster of games. Most games don't have much more to offer from the previous gen alternative, and despite the consoles being brand new, they are still having trouble running titles like Call of Duty Ghosts at a high resolution and steady frame rate.

    Just like with all console launches though, over time the graphics on the games for both of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will improve, and it's just a matter of time before we really do have next gen graphics in our living room.

    So far, PCs are seeming far superior to the PS4 and the Xbox One, but in the future this may change a little. Developers may put more effort into the two new consoles, and this may mean we'll get better content and performance on a console.

    A good example of this is the upcoming title Kingdom Under Fire II - The executive producer for the game, Sang Youn Lee, has stated that the PS4 version will actually have better graphics than the PC version. Lee said that it's, "A little hard to tell you right now because if the PC users know, they will be very angry. PS4 has much better graphics. PS4 graphics quality will be much better and higher than the PC version."

    It will be interesting to see what other console titles in the future will be able to offer PC-quality graphics.

  • Respawn Working on Fixing Matchmaking Bugs

    titanfall matchmaking bugsAs you may already know, Respawn Entertainment recently pushed out a patch to Titanfall that was intended to make finding balanced teams much easier, however since it has been released, more issues with the matchmaking system have been created.

    Whilst matchmaking games are now generally a lot more balanced out, the waiting time for finding a well balanced match takes much too long in it's current state, and many players have expressed their frustration with the system.

    Respawn are still working on creating a long term fix for the matchmaking system, but for the time being they have "turned down the effect of the new matchmaking to help players find games." This means games will be a little less balanced than this current patch, but games will also be found considerably faster.

    The matchmaking system in place is certainly a good system for stopping overbalanced teams from ruining the experience for other players, but at this point all of the waiting needed to find the game far outweighs any benefits that the new system offers to players.

    Hopefully a more balanced system will be introduced in the near future, but in the meantime players may have to deal with slightly unbalanced team matchmaking. Titanfall plan to add new game modes and other features such as private lobby systems for free in the future, but it's good that they are working on more important issues, such as the matchmaking system, first. No details have yet been given on when a fix for the matchmaking system is sent out.

  • New Second Son Update Planned

    infamous updateInFAMOUS second son has now been out for a couple of weeks, and it has received an incredibly great reception from fans, gamers and critics around the world. In my eyes, Sony exclusive developers always try their best to keep their fans happy, and I definitely think the developers behind InFAMOUS Second Son have done a good job already.

    However, they aren't yet done with the game, and they plan to keep updating it and ensuring that players get the best, fine tuned experience out of the game as possible. In fact, one update has already been planned, despite it not being that long ago that the title was released.

    Brian Fleming from Sucker Punch Studios wrote a blog post on the PlayStation website to give a bit of insight into his whole experience since the launch, and he then went on to talk about the future of InFAMOUS Second Son.

    Fleming mentioned a few new features that many fans have requested since it's launch - one of these is a Time of Day setting that players will be able to use once they have completed the game. The setting will give players control over exactly what time they would like it to be.

    In the new update, there will also be an option to completely remove the HUD - this way players can get completely immersed, or just take a completely kickass screenshot.

    Finally, the new update will have an option to cap the frames at 30FPS - this means that the game won't constantly be jumping up between 30 and 60FPS, and instead will stay steadily at 30FPS.

  • New Batman Arkham Origins DLC Announced

    batman arkham origins dlcA brand new Batman Arkham Origins DLC pack has been announced by Warner Bros. Interactive, and along with it, Warner Bros. have released a screenshot to show Batman donning his brand new XE Suit. This particular outfit will be made available when the new DLC pack is purchased.

    The new DLC, which has been named 'Cold Cold Heart' will add a few other things to the game as well, including a whole new chapter to explore in the game, and a bunch of new gear to help fight against Mr. Freeze and his army of goons.

    Warner Bros. Games' Vice President of production Ames Kirshen revealed that the new upcoming DLC is "like a mini chapter in the game." He went on to state that, "If you guys played and saw Initiation, it was more like a challenge map that had a little narrative wrapped around it. This is actually in-game mission story content with a brand new story wrapped around Mr. Freeze in the Arkham Origins setting."

    We've already heard a little bit about the Cold Cold Heart DLC pack, but this is the first time we've gotten an idea on the depth of the content included within the pack. This will be the first DLC expansion pack for Batman Arkham Origins that truly adds decent story and mission content into the game, so it will be exciting to get our hands on it. No details have been given yet on the length of the extra content, and for what price the content will be available for, however the Cold Cold Heart DLC expansion pack is set for release on April 22nd.

  • Titanfall Xbox 360 Version Will Offer Players 'the True Experience'

    titanfall xbox 360Whilst Titanfall has already been out for a while on both PC and Xbox One, Respawn Entertainment did originally plan for the title to have an Xbox 360 version released on the same date, too.

    However, delays in the development for the last gen port meant that the original release date had to be pushed back for the Xbox 360 version of Titanfall, but it's finally almost time for the game to release, and despite previous concerns, it's looking like it may run fairly smoothly on the old machine.

    Whilst development for the Xbox 360 version of Titanfall was handed down to Bluepoint Games, things should not be very different to the PC or Xbox One versions. Senior producer of the Titanfall 360 port, Daryl Allison, stated that despite the Xbox 360 being inferior in terms of hardware capability, the Xbox 360 version of Titanfall won't have any limitations.

    "Titanfall on the Xbox 360 is the true experience: all the maps, modes, pilots, titans, weapons, burn cards, you name it, found in the Xbox One and PC versions. The game looks great, sounds great, and above all it plays great. There are of course some differences that are due to the technical limitations of the hardware - for example, the game runs above 30fps - but the experts at Respawn worked with us to ensure that all the intense, 6v6 wall-running, titan-dropping action is there."
    This is exciting news to hear, and it looks like Xbox 360 players will be able to play the true Titanfall experience when the Xbox 360 port is released later this month.

  • April Lineup for Xbox Live Games with Gold Revealed

    games with gold aprilAnother month has gone by already, and that means another lineup of free games for both the PlayStation network and Xbox Live. For those that didn't know, both Microsoft and Sony have been running a monthly loyalty program that offers players free games to download each month in return for paying a monthly subscription to their services.

    So far it's been a pretty successful venture, but a lot of gamers have criticized Microsoft for not offering a decent rotation of games. The team behind the Xbox Live games with Gold program have recently revealed that they plan to improve the program over the coming months, and it looks like April is looking to be the first month to showcase these new improvements.

    Until April 16th, if you are a paying Xbox Live Gold member you will be able to download and play Hitman Absolution for free. Once downloaded, the title will stay in your game library, even after your Gold membership is cancelled.

    Hitman Absolution is a great game, and if you haven't had the chance to play it yet I'd definitely suggest checking it out this month.

    After April 16th, Hitman Absolution will be replaced with Deadlight, a side scrolling horror arcade game, which despite looking fairly cheap on the graphics, is a great way to pass the time.

    Hopefully the Xbox Live games with Gold program will continue to improve, as so far Sony's offering has been far superior to Microsoft's.

  • New DOOM Game Beta Will be Current Gen Only

    doom betaIt's been known for a while now that the upcoming Wolfenstein title, The New Order, will come packed with beta access for a brand new DOOM game that is currently in the works and being published by Bethesda.

    However, so far details on the beta, it's availability and the platforms it will run on have been pretty unclear. This week, we've uncovered a bit more information about the beta, and it has now been announced that the DOOM beta will only be available for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

    To get beta access, gamers must pre-order a copy of Wolfenstein: The New Order. As expected, a PS4 pre-order will allocate the owner a PS4 beta key, an Xbox One copy pre-order will allocate the owner an Xbox One beta key, and pre-ordering for the PC will grant owners a beta key for the PC version of doom.

    It has also been revealed that players will need an active Xbox Live Gold membership to play DOOM online, but PlayStation 4 owners will get off the hook, as they will not need a PS Plus membership to give the DOOM beta a spin.

    So far, the beta release date has not been revealed, and at this point we couldn't make a decent estimate, but it's likely to be between the release of Wolfenstein and some time next year. A FAQ was created to give a bit more clarification. It stated that, "Although you'll receive the Doom beta key code with your copy of Wolfenstein: The New Order, the Doom beta won't begin until a later, yet-to-be announced date. We will be providing more information on the specific content and duration of the beta test at a later time."

  • Deus Ex Mankind Divided Trademarked by Square Enix

    deus ex mankind divided]Square Enix has just grabbed the Trademark rights for the phrase "Deus Ex: Mankind Divided" in the United Kingdom, and this could mean we've got a new upcoming Deus Ex title to look for. The trademark was filed on March 27th, so it could still be a while before we see or hear anything else about this new Deus Ex game, however Square Enix and Eidos Montreal did reveal earlier in October 2013 that they do have plans to release a new Deus Ex title for the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One.

    If you were enjoyed playing through Human Revolution, then you should be happy to hear that the upcoming Deus Ex game will be worked on by the same core team that worked through the last title, which was released in 2011.
    Unsurprisingly, not much has been released for the new Deus Ex game, although there has been a concept art image showcased. (shown above.) Producer David Anfossi revealed that the art, "represents a 'ghetto-city' voluntarily built in order to separate the classes. The people in this segregated class have reshaped their environment, nostalgic for their ideal of Cyber Renaissance. This dark and dystopian vision sets the tone for things to come in Deus Ex."
    If we’re lucky, we may see a little something of the upcoming Deus Ex game at this year's E3, if not, then Eidos and Square Enix should most likely have something to show us by the end of this year.

  • New Forza 5 Update Makes DLC Cars Free in Garage

    forza 5 free dlcA few changes have just gone live for the DLC car system currently in place for Forza 5, and it will have a few effects on gameplay.

    One of the biggest changes is that from now on, when a player purchases a DLC car, that car will arrive instantly in their garage, as opposed to the system beforehand that required players to buy the car both with real money as a DLC pack, and with in-game currency after purchasing the DLC.

    Turn10 creative director Dan Greenawalt gave a bit of information in this change, "As of today, players who have purchased DLC cars in Forza Motorsport 5 can add those cars to their Forza 5 garage immediately, at no additional in-game cost. And moving forward, when you buy a Car Pass, a DLC car pack, or a single DLC car, you will be granted the one-time free addition of each car to your Forza 5 garage, without needing to purchase them with in-game credits or tokens."

    "This goes for all current Forza Motorsport 5 DLC (including cars in previous DLC car packs) and it will be the case for all future Forza 5 DLC car packs."
    This will mean players will get garage access to any DLC cars that were purchased before this change. On top of the DLC system, Turn10 have added the much requested car rental options. All 200 cars that were available at launch can now be rented out.
