  • Watch Dogs Sequel Coming 2017

    watch dogs sequel 2017

    You didn't really think Ubisoft would create an entirely new IP and never touch it again did you? Well, if you did, I have some news for you. It's been confirmed that a brand new Watch Dogs game is in the works and if all goes to plan, it should hit shelves at some point in 2017.

    In Ubisoft's recent financial calling, a number of details were revealed, but the highlight of the show was definitely the announcement of Watch Dogs 2 to their investors. To top it off, Ubisoft also have plans for a brand new AAA IP, however this has yet to be revealed.

    The new Watch Dogs 2 has been scheduled to launch before Ubisoft's next financial year ends, which will mean the new game will hit before April 30, 2017. Two other games, For Honor and Ghost Recon: WildLands, are expected to launch before the above date too and to top it off, Ubisoft have a re-imagined Assassin's Creed planned for this financial year.

    We aren't sure what's more exciting. A new Watch Dogs title could potentially be massive if Ubisoft take their original concept and take it even further, but a re-imagined Assassin's Creed could take that franchise into new waters. Finally, a brand new AAA IP is perhaps the most interesting news yet. We have no idea what the new IP could be, but Ubisoft did mention that the new IP could be a "high-potential AAA brand with strong digital live services."

  • Telltale Announces New Walking Dead Game

    Telltale Games has just revealed a bomb shell. The company responsible for the popular Walking Dead story video game series has just announced that they will be working on another Walking Dead game, among other franchises.

    In a new forum post on the Telltale Games community website, the company has revealed that they will be creating a Walking Dead mini series focused on the character Michonne from the TV series. In the post, a new announcement trailer was added and it was mentioned that the game will be a three part series.

    "We've been hard at work on this very special exploration of The Walking Dead universe that will further bridge together our game series with the canon of Robert Kirkman's comic though one of its most complex characters struggling to maintain her own humanity," said Kevin Bruner, Co-Founder and CEO of Telltale Games. "Deeply haunted by the decisions of her past, putting players in the role of a character like Michonne to navigate the broken world around her is an experience that feels uniquely Telltale, and something we simply cannot wait for The Walking Dead fans to play."

    In good Telltale Games fashion, the new game will be available for PC, PlayStation 3, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, iOS and Android.

    In other news, Minecraft Story Mode episode 5 is under development, The Walking Dead season 3 has been announced, an untitled Batman title is in the planning stage, Game of Thrones Season 2 is already in the works, The Wolf Among Us season 2 is being developed and may hit shelves in 2016, and a brand new IP created by Telltale games without any third party input is sitting on the drawing board.

  • Destiny Sequel in 2017?

    destiny 2 2017

    The plans for Bungie's latest child, Destiny, haven't been set in stone for a while. The Destiny community have had no idea what Bungie's plans are for the IP for a long time now and with Bungie's clear focus on monetization and revenue, it has been a little worrying.

    Fortunately some new information has come in to shed light on exactly what Bungie has been planning behind the scenes. In a new public statement from Bungie, it was revealed that a new expansion similar to previous expansions for Destiny will hit later this year, whilst a full sequel to the Destiny game is planned for 2017.

    Bungie's statement mentions, "Prior to the holiday break we mentioned a second, larger update slated for Spring. That content release will feature a significant Light increase, a bunch of new gear to earn and equip, and new challenges for PvE players seeking some more fun experiences and replayability. Beyond that, the team is focused on delivering a large expansion later this year, and a full Destiny sequel in 2017."

    Obviously a full Destiny sequel is still some way off so there isn't too much to discuss there. As for the expansion. we wouldn't expect something the size of The Taken King again this year, but perhaps we'll receive an update that's still much bigger than the first two DLC releases.

    For now we'll have to be patient and hope Bungie reveals some information about their upcoming content soon.

  • The Arbiter is Coming to Killer Instinct

    arbiter in killer instinct

    If you're a fan of the Halo franchise, you may want to check this out.

    It turns out that the new Killer Instinct season will be getting some new fighters, one of which will be a familiar face for anybody that has played Halo 2 or Halo 3. It has been revealed that the Arbiter, an Elite that has allied with the Master Chief will be playable as a guest fighter in Killer Instinct season 3.

    Alongside the addition of the Arbiter, Kim Wu will also be making a return to Killer Instinct. Kim Wu wields nun-chucks and also has a special dragon power. Kim Wu has been in Killer Instinct since 1996 so it's good to see the fighter making a return.

    Season 3 of Killer Instinct will also introduce three more characters to the fighter lineup. The three new characters have been confirmed as Tusk, Gargos and Rash. Rash is a character from a well known classic 2D game called Battletoads - it's odd to see Rash as a 3D character but we can't wait to see how well he can put up a fight against the other upcoming fighters.

    We're most excited about the Arbiter in Killer Instinct season 3. The trailer seems to suggest that the Arbiter's main weapon will be the Energy Sword, although we wouldn't be surprised if he has a few other tricks up his sleeve as well. The Arbiter is the second guest character in a fighting game. In Dead or Alive 4, a Spartan named Nicole was introduced as a guest.

  • Free PS Plus February Games Revealed

    ps plus february 2016

    It's a brand new month and that means a brand new set of free games for all PS Plus subscribers. The PS Plus games will be available for all players for the entirety of their PS Plus subscription.

    The first title on the list of free games this month is GRID Autosport for the PlayStation 3. GRID is a simulation style racing game and offers a lengthy campaign mode and great racing physics. Despite being on PlayStation 3, the visuals in GRID Autosport are pretty spectacular too. Unfortunately a PS4 port is not available.

    The second PlayStation 3 title that is available for free in February is Persona 4 Arena Ultimax. Persona is a fighter franchise and number four offers decent gameplay, although the story is a little lacking.

    Helldivers: Democracy Strikes Back is also available for the PlayStation 3 but this title can be picked up for the PlayStation 4 and the PS Vita too. Nom Nom Galaxy is the only PS4 exclusive title in February, whilst PS Vita owners will be able to pick up Lemmings Touch and Nova-111 for free this month.

    We think this free PS Plus game lineup is pretty decent - you'll be able to get the most gameplay hours out of GRID but you could easily kill a lot of time in the other titles and Persona 4 would be a great choice if you're looking for a new fighting game that isn't Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter or Tekken.

  • February Games with Gold Lineup Revealed

    february games with gold 2016

    The new free Games with Gold lineup for February 2016 has now been revealed. Players with an Xbox LIVE Gold account will be able to help themselves to a number of free games throughout February. The first two titles available for Xbox One players will be Hand of Fate - this title will be available for download from February 1st, all the way to the end of the month.

    Starting from February 16, Styx: Master of Shadows will be the second exclusive Xbox One title available via the Games with Gold February lineup. Styx will remain available until March 15.

    As for Xbox 360 titles, Sacred Citadel, an Xbox 360 arcade title, will be available from February 1 till February 15. After Sacred Citadel gets taken off the lineup, it will be replaced with Gears of War 2 which will remain on the lineup until February 29. All four of the titles cost just under $80 for the digital versions.

    Both Gears of War 2 and Sacred Citadel can be played on the Xbox One via backwards compatibility so if you own the Xbox One you'll be able to pick up four free games this month. Once you have started downloading each of these titles, they will remain in your game library forever, even if you cancel your Gold subscription. There's no reason not to collect these games to build up your library, just make sure to collect them before they get replaced by other titles!

  • EA Launching Titanfall, Mass Effect Andromeda and New Battlefield

    ea fiscal year 2017

    The upcoming year is looking to be a great one for video games, especially as far as EA is concerned. EA has recently given out its plans for fiscal year 2017, which starts in April 2016 and ends in March 2017.

    It looks as if three major titles will be hitting the shelves in 2016 and early 2017, although plenty of other great titles will be launched alongside the heavy hitters. As you can imagine, none of the release dates were given for the upcoming games. EA simply confirmed that the titles were to be released during the new fiscal year.

    In the statement, EA mentioned, "In Q1, we'll begin with the creative and innovative Mirror's Edge Catalyst from DICE launching in May. A great line-up of EA Sports titles are in development for next year, and we look forward to sharing more about these new experiences in the months ahead. An all-new Battlefield game from DICE will arrive in time for the holidays, we're excited to have a new Titanfall experience coming from our friends at Respawn - and of course, Mass Effect Andromeda from the team at BioWare will launch later in the fiscal year."

    So, the first new title to hit the shelves will be the new Mirror's Edge title in May. Following on from that, we will be getting a new Battlefield title in 2016 in time for the holiday season and Titanfall and Mass Effect Andromeda may get released in early 2017.

  • Ark: Survival Evolved Patch Incoming for Xbox One

    ark survival evolved xbox one patch

    A much needed patch for Ark: Survival Evolved is headed to the Xbox One and it will bring some important tweaks and fixes to the game. So far the entire patch notes for the new Xbox One update have not been revealed but the official Ark twitter posted a small teaser of the patch notes.

    In the teaser, the following information was shared.

    + Includes all PC content up thru to PC version .233
    + Split screen multiplayer supported for online and local play
    + Frame rate improvements
    + Maximum number of players in non-dedicated servers increased to 8
    + Fixed a memory leak that would eventually cause the client to crash after some time
    + Fixed multi-colored Dimorphodon

    Including split screen to Ark was a surprise, especially considering singleplayer frame rate is already struggling to perform well. However, the new update does improve the overall frame rate so maybe the new Xbox One patch will allow players to play Ark: Survival Evolved on the Xbox One without lag, even when playing split screen mode.

    Adding all of the PC content up to the .233 version is also exciting. This means Xbox One players will get access to new gameplay content, including new dinosaurs and wildlife, such as the Dimetrodon and the Gallimimus. Riot Armor has also been added, alongside lots of other content.

    The anticipated release date for the new Xbox One patch is set for February 10. Whilst this date may change, the release is likely to be on or around this date.

  • New Dying Light DLC Expansion Gets Launch Date

    dying light dlc expansion

    We've mentioned in previous articles that Dying Light was set to receive a free DLC expansion and we finally have more details about the exact release date of the upcoming content. For those unaware, Dying Light will be getting a special edition release in February and it will include the base game and all released DLC since the launch of Dying Light. The special edition release will also include the upcoming DLC expansion for free, however all existing owners of the original Dying Light will also be given the DLC expansion for free.

    So when will the new Dying Light DLC be launched? Techland has revealed that the new content will be available in North America, South America and some parts of Europe on February 9. Other regions will have to wait a little longer.

    The exact wait time will depend on your region. For example, the UK will receive the new Dying Light expansion for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on February 12, although the PC version will also be available on February 9. Japan will have to wait the longest as the expansion release date for Japan is April 21.

    The new expansion opens up new territory in the Dying Light open world and also adds a buggy vehicle that can make traversing the world a lot easier. The buggy can also be used to mow down zombies, which will definitely be a lot of fun. The new Nightmare game difficulty level will also be added with the upcoming DLC.
