  • New SoulCalibur Could be Coming

    new soulcaliburWith all of the most recent fighting game releases, it would only be fitting to have a new SoulCalibur game somewhere along the way too. Surprisingly, this might actually happen. The development wing at Bandai Namco responsible for the SoulCalibur series has just posted something on their social media pages, suggesting that a new SoulCalibur game could be coming.

    On their Facebook page, the SoulCalibur developers posted a poll that asked fans about their favorite characters in the game franchise. Fans were only allowed one vote and the post stated that it would be used to help "Determine precisely who are the favorite characters of the community." The post then went on to say, "Project Soul is probably preparing something huge... Stay tuned and spread the news!"

    Whilst this doesn't directly confirm that a new SoulCalibur game is in the works, they did mention that this had nothing to do SoulCalibur Lost Swords but was designed for the SoulCalibur brand in general. Lost Swords was a free to play game set in the SoulCalibur universe that was released last year. As you can imagine, a lot of fans were a little upset about this release, and everybody is impatiently waiting for the next big real game.

    We're all hoping for a SoulCalibur 6 and it could definitely be coming. We may get something else instead, but something new from the Soul team is on it's way. Let's hope Bandai Namco reveals something soon.

  • You can Now Pre-load Wolfenstein The Old Blood

    wolfenstein the old bloodWolfenstein The Old Blood is finally set to release next week, and to anticipate for the launch of The New Order sequel, preloading has now been opened up for the game. The Old Blood will be releasing on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on May 5, so if you do purchase the digital version you should be able to switch on your console and start downloading today.

    If you still haven't purchased the game but want the best deal, you should consider picking up The Old Blood for the PlayStation 4 as it is currently on sale for $18. Both the Xbox One and PC versions of The Old Blood are available online for $20.

    Unfortunately, The Old Blood isn't going to sit quietly on your system. The Xbox One version of The Old Blood will weigh in at a huge 37.14 GB, whilst the Steam version will need at least 38GB of free space on your hard drive for it to install. The PS4 pre order page oddly lists The Old Blood as requiring just 10.2MB in space, but this seems more like a mistake than an accurate estimate.

    Whilst The Old Blood is a standalone game, it still uses a lot of the same assets from The New Order. The Old Blood is a prequel to the first new Wolfenstein title, and it will come with a new weapon, a nazi zombies mode and some more content.

  • Gears of War HD Remaster Could be Coming Soon

    gears of war hd remasterAlthough we may not be getting the Marcus Fenix Collection like we originally thought, a standard HD remaster of the first Gears of War game may actually be coming to Xbox One soon.

    A report was released late last week by Polygon that suggested Microsoft are working on a HD remaster of the original Gears of War game. Whilst the reports come from sources that aren't completely trustworthy, it would make sense that an HD remaster of GoW was in the works.

    So many rumors have been circulating about a Gears of War remaster and sometimes even officials that have worked on Gears of War have chipped in. It’s a shame that it may only be the first Gears of War title, but it would still be good to see Gears of War breathe new light on the Xbox One.

    According to the same sources, the Gears of War HD Remaster will include better lighting and improved texture quality, so it won't just be a port with enhanced resolution. However, it's possible the remaster will be displayed at 1080P, and the source suggests that the game will run at 60fps in multiplayer.

    The single player campaign may have lower frame rates, but seeing consistently over 30 frames should be very accomplishable.

    I haven't been able to play Gears of War for a long time so seeing a new HD remaster would be amazing for me. Let's just hope that the rumors are true and that we’ll be hearing more from more official sources very soon.

  • Black Ops 3 DLC Packs and Season Pass Details Leaked

    black ops 3 dlc packsWhilst a lot of information about Black Ops 3 has been released officially, there is still a lot that Treyarch are waiting to reveal. Luckily, some details have already leaked, including details about the different DLC packs that will be in Black Ops 3.

    Black Ops 3 will have 4 different DLC packs, all of which will be part of the season pass. As usual, the season pass can be purchased up front and will cost considerably less than it would to purchase each of the DLC packs separately as they are released.

    Unfortunately we do not have details about what content will be in the Black Ops 3 DLC packs, although it could be possible that not even Treyarch are 100% sure at this point. Considering the full game hasn't even gone gold yet, it would make sense that DLC plans are not completely confirmed at this point.

    If previous Call of Duty games are anything to go by, we can expect new maps from the DLC packs, along with new weapons and maybe some extra gun camos. There may be more customization options bundled into the DLC packs. Advanced Warfare also introduced a part-by-part zombies campaign that was split up into each DLC pack, and this may be the same for Black Ops 3.

    Hopefully the standard zombies mode will be available alongside the base of the game, otherwise I think a lot of Call of Duty players will be very unhappy about Black Ops 3.

  • Multiplayer Maps for Black Ops 3 Revealed

    multiplayer maps black ops 3I'm actually quite excited about the singleplayer for Call of Duty Black Ops 3, but what's equally as exciting is the new changes being made to the multiplayer.

    The multiplayer is of course where the majority of players will be spending most of their time, so if you are like me you are probably wondering about the different maps that will be available at launch.

    Fortunately, a few details on the maps in Black Ops 3 have already been shared, along with some other multiplayer information. We only have details about three different maps so far, but that's more than enough to keep us patiently waiting a little bit longer for more information.

    The known map details are provided below.

    Hunted: A Mid to long range engagement map with a waterfall in the middle allowing for swimming mechanics

    Combine: A tight, close quarters map allowing for SMG's and shotguns to dominate with a risky wall running spot.

    Stronghold: A snowy/icy based map in the foothills of Switzerland, allowing for CQB with long range engagements

    Treyarch have also given details on the game modes that will be returning to Black Ops 3. These have been listed below.

    Team Deathmatch
    Domination
    Kill Confirmed
    Hard point
    Free for All
    Ground War
    Demolition
    Search and Destroy
    Capture the Flag

    Finally, a new rumor has suggested that a brand new weapon customization system was coming to Black Ops 3. Called GunSmith, players will be able to use this system to create their own weapon camos, using up to 64 layers to place on three sides of their weapon.

  • Limited Edition Halo 5 Xbox one Console Planned

    halo 5 xbox one consoleHalo has always been a big Xbox seller, so it's not really surprising that Microsoft and 343 Industries are planning to release a limited edition Halo 5 themed Xbox One console that will come with a copy of the upcoming game.

    So far we have very few details about the limited edition Halo 5 console, although we know that it is definitely coming. The news was revealed on Twitter by Josh Holmes, the studio head for Halo 5: Guardians.

    Details about the limited edition console are bound to come at some point closer to the release of Halo 5. We'll be able to find out about how much the Halo 5 themed console will cost and also what it will look like. It makes sense that the console will be available on the same day Halo 5: Guardians is, which is October 27. Pre-orders for the console should hopefully open a little earlier than October 27.

    Two other limited edition versions of Halo 5: Guardians have already been confirmed, with details about those being more beefy. The first version is the $100 edition which comes with "new digital content to enhance Spartan combat and exclusive items wrapped in a uniquely designed steel book."

    A much pricier $250 version is also being released. The $250 edition of Halo 5 Guardians will come with the same features as above, along with a numbered statue. Here's to wondering whether there will be an even more ultimate edition with the statue, limited edition content and the Halo 5 console.

  • Black Ops 3 Will Have Titanfall Wall Running

    black ops 3 titanfallYou may have felt like Call of Duty Advanced Warfare took a few too many pages from Titanfall's book, but apparently Black Ops 3 is going to be taking some more pages. Treyarch has officially revealed some details about Black Ops 3, including information about a special wall running ability that will be in the game.

    Just like in Titanfall, to wall run in Call of Duty Black Ops 3 you will need to approach a wall at an angle to begin wall running. You will have an invisible "energy" meter, and once this runs out, you will come back off of the wall and land on the ground. Leaping between walls can increase your energy meter, so you could potentially keep wall running for a lengthy period of time.

    Treyarch have always been great at creating multiplayer maps, so let's hope they can create some maps that allow players to really make good use of the new wall running ability.

    Call of Duty Black Ops 3 will also have a new swimming mechanic. Players will now be able to cross through any areas of deep water. When swimming, a player will be able to keep their gun in their hands, allowing them to shoot whilst swimming.

    I think it would be interesting to see how Treyarch implement both the new swimming and wall running mechanics into the Black Ops 3 maps. Treyarch have the potential to turn both of these features into useful game additions, but without much effort they could just end up being not-so-useful gimmicks.

  • More Black Ops 3 Details Released, Including Supported Platforms

    black ops 3 detailsIf you didn't know already, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is coming this year, and it's looking it could completely change a lot about the previous games in the franchise.

    The latest trailer has released more details about Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, including a release date and the supported platforms that the game will run on. As you can expect, Black Ops 3 will only be available for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, so there will not be any support for the Xbox 360 or the PlayStation 3.

    Black Ops 3 will be releasing on November 6 worldwide, but players are given the chance to play it a little earlier. If you pre-order Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 you will be given access to a multiplayer beta.

    There will be a beta for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, so you'll be able to give the beta a try no matter what platform you play on. Unfortunately neither Treyarch or Activision has given a date on the multiplayer beta, but it can't be that far away considering that the full game will be released near the end of this year.

    In more news it has been revealed that the multiplayer in Black Ops 3 will be undergoing some interesting changes. Players will no longer be playing as a standard soldier. Instead they will be forced to choose between certain specialists, all of which have their own unique abilities or weapon loadouts.

  • Batman Arkham Knight Will Have Interesting Character Switch Mechanic

    batman arkham knightNew details have emerged about how players will play through Batman Arkham Knight. This time round, players will have access to different playable characters, and they will be able to swap between the different characters in a similar fashion to Grand Theft Auto V.

    Unlike Grand Theft Auto 5, the different playable characters in Batman Arkham Knight will not be going about their own business in the world. Instead, you can switch out to any superheroes accompanying Batman at the time at the tap of a button.

    This new information was revealed in a brand new trailer for Batman Arkham Knight. In the trailer, Cat woman, Robin and Night Wing are seen as characters that players can switch out to at any time. Whilst we aren't sure whether this will be the full lineup of characters, this trio of superheroes is going to be more than capable of making Batman's day just a little bit easier.

    When switching to a new character in the midst of a fight, you will sometimes be able to chain together some pretty spectacular dual play combo attacks. We've seen something like this in fighting games before but this is the first time it works so flawlessly in an action game like Batman Arkham Knight.

    The trailer ends with a small glimpse of Harley Quinn - if you pre-order Batman Arkham Knight before the game is released you will be able to play as her in the challenge maps.

  • Project Cars Will Have 110 Race Tracks on Launch Day

    project carsSlightly Mad Studios has just released a bunch of information about Project Cars in anticipation for it's launch next month. According to the development team, Project Cars will come with 30 different locations and there will be 110 different courses spread out across these locations.

    All of the locations and race tracks in Project Cars have been based on places in the real world, and from what we've seen so far Slightly Mad Studios has done a good job to replicate these locations using incredible detail.

    Whilst a lot of the race tracks are unique spots, some tracks are slight variations of the same race course. For example, the Sakito circuit in Japan has four layouts including GP, National, International and Sprint. Each of these layouts count as a separate track out of the 110 tracks that will be in the base game when Project Cars launches.

    It's surprising that Project Cars has been delayed so many times since it was first announced but this new information about the game comes as an extra confirmation that the latest release date is final.

    Project Cars is now set to release on May 8 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Slightly Mad Studios has also talked about releasing a version for the Wii U but we have not heard anything about this for quite some time now. It's likely we may hear more about the Wii U once the launch for the other consoles has come out of the gate.
