  • Civilization Beyond Earth Planned for October Release Date

    civilization beyond earth release2K Games has finally announced the release date for the next Civilization game. Civilization: Beyond Earth will be available for players to purchase on October 24th this year.

    Beyond Earth will take the core gameplay of Civilization 5 and breathe new air into it by offering new experiences, and most importantly, the ability to send your civilization to space, which is a first for the franchise.

    So far, Civilization: Beyond Earth has been set for an exclusive PC launch, and details for a console release have not yet been given. However, if you're still interested, you'll be able to purchase Beyond Earth for $50.

    If you decide to pre-order Civilization: Beyond Earth, you'll also receive a fairly decent pre-order bonus in the name of a new map pack. The map pack has been named the Exoplanet pack and it comes with six different maps.

    So far it is unclear whether the Exoplanet map pack will be exclusive for early adopters, or whether it will be made available after the release date of Civilization: Beyond Earth as a DLC pack.

    The Exoplanet pack will come with the following maps; Kepler 186f, a forest-based planet similar to Earth, Rigil Khantoris Bb, a continental based planet, Tau Ceti d, a planet filled with sea and expensive resources, Mu Area f, a hot desert planet, 82 Eridani e, a planet with limited water, and Eta Vulpeculae b, a planet filled with 'mysterious terrain.'

  • New Killzone Shadowfall 1.30 Patch Rolled Out

    killzone shadowfall patchA new patch for has just rolled out for Killzone Shadowfall on consoles this week, and it includes a bunch of changes to Guerrilla Game's PlayStation 4 exclusive title. The new 1.30 patch for Killzone Shadowfall adds a range of bug fixes and gameplay tweaks, as well as adding support for the new upcoming multiplayer maps.

    One bug fix in patch 1.30 which I think a lot of players will be relieved to hear about is the spawn camera issue. This problem forced players to spawn in the opposite direction to the way the spawn camera was facing.

    Guerrilla Games have also made it easier for players to understand what weapons players are able to unlock in Killzone Shadowfall patch 1.30, and players will also see much smoother game flow at the end of a round.

    Killzone Shadowfall has failed to receive as large of a player base as games like Call of Duty or Halo, but despite this Guerrilla Games are putting in a lot of effort to provide players with an optimum online experience, new free content patches, and regular new DLC packs to keep things interesting for players.

    The latest DLC pack for Killzone Shadowfall is Intercept, and it will bring a brand new co-op game mode to multiplayer that rewards players with well coordinated teamwork and communication. Intercept released on June 24th for Killzone Shadowfall and can be picked up for $9.99. For season pass holders, the Intercept DLC can be downloaded for free.

  • Battlefield 4's Next DLC, Dragon's Teeth, will Release July 15

    BF4 Dragons Teeth July 15Despite us being a third of the way through July already, EA have still not officially given us the details on the release date for Battlefield 4's next DLC pack, Dragon's Teeth.

    However, a slip up on the EA Origin twitter account revealed what may be the planned date for the Battlefield 4 Dragon's Teeth DLC. The tweet read, "Save 20% on #BF4 Premium right now, then jump into #DragonsTeeth on July 15th."

    The tweet that mentioned the July 15th date for Dragon's Teeth was removed quickly, and soon replaced with the same message, with "Save 20% on #BF4 Premium right now, then jump into #DragonsTeeth 2 weeks early."

    We can gather three things from this information; firstly, someone working the Origin twitter account made a slip-up and is probably getting shouted at for it, secondly Battlefield Premium owners will be getting Dragon's Teeth on July 15th, and regular users will be able to purchase the Dragon's Teeth DLC two weeks later, which will be July 29th.

    If you purchased the $39.99 season pass, you should be in the clear for receiving the Dragon's Teeth DLC pack for free on July 15th, however as this date isn't official yet, there is a small chance the next DLC pack for Battlefield 4 may be pushed back a little.

    Either way, it's likely Dragon's Teeth for Battlefield 4 will be out this July, at least for any Battlefield 4 Premium members.

  • PS4 Slim Planned; Release Probably Far Off

    PS4 slimBack when the PlayStation 3 was first released, many believed that Sony were never going to catch up to the amount of units the Xbox 360 was selling. However, with the help of a new slimline variant of the PS3 with larger storage space and a cheaper price point, Sony managed to claw it's way to a position that put it neck and neck with Microsoft's Xbox 360.

    This time round, Sony have gained the clear sales advantage over Microsoft and the Xbox One, but just like before, anything could happen to give the losing console the chance to wing it into first place.

    If the Xbox One manages to get a price drop and a selection of strong console exclusives, sales for the console could easily start to catch up with that of the PlayStation 4, and if that happens, Sony are reportedly prepared to drop out a new PlayStation 4 slim variant, which like the PS3 slim, will most likely come with a slim line frame, a cheaper price point and a larger hard drive.

    It's likely a 'slim' version of the PlayStation 4 will release at some stage, but it also makes sense that a release will only kick in when sales start to slow down, and Xbox One sales start to pick up.

    Right now, the PlayStation 4 is drastically beating the Xbox One in terms of units sold, and this huge difference in sales numbers isn't likely to change any time soon. Perhaps we'll see a PS4 slim in a few years.

  • Cliffy B Goes Back Into Video Game Development

    Cliffy B New GameA little while back Cliff Bleszinski announced plans to retire from video game development for good, but it seems he just couldn't keep away from the video game industry as he's already back at it with plans to make more video games again.

    Despite his supposed video game retirement, it's been clear for a while that Cliffy B has been working on some kind of video game project, and it looks like he plans to reveal it to the world pretty soon.

    On Bleszinski's twitter, he wrote, "I'm officially coming out of retirement to make video games again. Stay tuned here for details in the next 7 days!"

    Whilst his previous work has been alongside AAA studios responsible for franchises like Gears of War and Unreal Tournament, it sounds likely that Cliffy B's next project will be something completely different.

    Cliff Bleszinski has already revealed a few different concept art images for a game that he has codenamed Silverstreak, so perhaps we'll hear more about this title within the next 7 days like Cliff suggested on his Twitter account.

    In or out of retirement, it's clear Cliffy B will not have any input on the next Gears of War title, which is largely where he made a name for himself. Do you think Bleszinski's next game make much of a splash? We'll have to see exactly what Cliffy B has up his sleeve before we give an answer on that one.

  • Sony May Be Looking Into Buying Crytek

    Sony Buys CrytekA lot of information has hit the world recently regarding Crytek's current financial struggles, and whilst it's clear that they're in the rough right now, details surrounding their fate in the future are very cloudy.

    It could be possible that a company or a group of companies decide to buy out Crytek's assets, in a similar fashion to the THQ buyout in 2012. However, it would be unexpected for a company like Sony to come along and outright buy Crytek and all of it's worth.

    Surprisingly though, a well-renowned insider by the name of Tidux has suggested that Sony may actually be considering purchasing Crytek in the near future.

    Tidux made it very clear that what he's heard is just a rumor, but Sony are reportedly looking in to buying Crytek at this point, and assessing whether making such a move would bring in profit for them.

    Personally, I believe it's very possible that Sony are considering to buy Crytek, but I would be surprised if they actually followed through with it. We'll have to keep our eyes and ears peeled. It's likely something will happen to Crytek, but right now nobody really knows what that is.

    If Sony does buy Crytek, they'll have access to a few different franchise names including Crysis, Homefront, and maybe even Ryse, despite the fact that the only current game from the IP is an Xbox exclusive.

  • TLOU Remastered PS4 Bundle Revealed

    ps4 tlou bundleDespite The Last of Us Remastered being a port of a PlayStation 3 title, it seems Sony really want to push for as many sales as possible for the upcoming HD PlayStation exclusive, and their next move to suggest this comes in the form of a brand new PlayStation 4 bundle.

    The new PlayStation 4 bundle comes with a console, a DualShock 4 controller, and a copy of The Last of Us Remastered. The bundle was first leaked on Amazon a few days ago, but it has since been made official by Sony.

    The brand new bundle has been set for a $429.99 price tag, which should be in-line with other similar PlayStation 4 bundles currently available. So far no details have been given on a North American or UK price tag or release, but it's likely this bundle will be made available in most regions.

    The new bundle can already be pre-ordered now. The release date for the bundle is quite unclear, although some retailers have suggested an August 1st, 2014 date, which would make sense considering the Last of Us Remastered will be released on July 29th.

    So far, The Last of Us has proven to be an incredible game, but many gamers have been quite disappointed at the huge price tag of the remastered version and lack of upgrade discount, which seems to have been neglected, despite Naughty Dog previously discussing the possibility of such a thing. Will you be getting The Last of Us Remastered or do you see it as an unnecessary purchase?

  • Is Call of Duty World at War 2 Coming?

    cod world at war 2Right now, everyone who may be slightly interested in Call of Duty will be keeping their main attention on Advanced Warfare, however it's pretty likely that both Infinity Ward and Treyarch are working behind the scenes to create the next upcoming Call of Duty titles, after Advanced Warfare.

    Advanced Warfare looks to change up quite a lot in the Call of Duty franchise, but for those that aren't too happy about the changes, and would rather take it old school, you may be interested in the following information.

    Apparently, Amazon slipped up and momentarily leaked a brand new cover image for Call of Duty World at War 2. Whilst this information can't be verified, it's certainly clear that Treyarch will be returning in 2015 with a new Call of Duty game, and it could be very possible that World at War 2 will be the next game in the series, after Advanced Warfare.

    If this is the case, the 2015 Call of Duty game will be the first title to go back to the past, instead of focusing on present day or future scenarios. I think that a lot of fans will appreciate a World at War 2, as it's been a long time since we've seen a decent WW2 based shooter.

    Right now, all PR will be focused on Advanced Warfare, so we probably won't hear anything about World at War till after AW has been released.

    Get ready for Advanced Warfare now with the Evil Controller's Master Mod available for Xbox One and Xbox 360! Check us out at www.evilcontrollers.com

  • Cheaper GoTY First Party Xbox One Titles Are Coming

    xbox one goty editionI've personally never really owned any Game of the Year edition games, but they are typically released at a cheaper price to their original counterparts, and are a great alternative for anybody looking to buy new games at a discounted price. Microsoft have released Xbox 360 GoTY titles for years, but it's now been revealed that they plan to release a bunch of Game of The Year first party games for the Xbox One this year too, to help bulk up the current game portfolio.

    It has been confirmed that the new Game of the Year edition titles will come at a cheaper price than the original versions, however the price has not yet been revealed. Interestingly, gamers may be able to pick up a new Xbox One SKU that bundles together a bunch of different GoTY titles at a reduced price.

    Microsoft are still waiting to see how many third party publishers are interested in re-releasing their Xbox One games into the Game of the Year title list, but it's possible games like Assassin's Creed Black Flag, Call of Duty: Ghosts and other titles may make it into the GoTY catalogue, along with Ryse: Son of Rome, Dead Rising 3 and Forza Motorsport 5.

    All of these new GoTY edition games should be released 'as soon as possible,' however a September release date seems the most likely. We'll probably hear more about these titles, along with information about new Xbox One bundles in the next few months.

  • Ryse 2 Cancelled Due to Crytek Financial Struggle

    ryse 2 cancelledI was surprised to hear that a second Ryse title was ever even planned in the first place, but it turns out that Ryse 2, the sequel to the first Xbox One exclusive by Crytek will most likely be canned, due to various financial issues Crytek is currently dealing with.

    Rumors about Crytek's financial struggle have been spreading for a few months now, and it seems all we hear from the company today are in regards to their inability to pay the bills.

    However, the true cause behind the alleged cancellation of Ryse 2 simply comes down to a disagreement between Crytek and Microsoft. It seems Microsoft was happy to fund the cost for a Ryse sequel, but only if Crytek gave the full rights to the IP to Microsoft.

    Despite lots of talk about Crytek's bad financial position, it seems they are still going full steam ahead with their latest announced title, Homefront: The Revolution. However, it's possible the new Homefront game may never make it to retail either, as many developers working for Crytek are complaining about lack of pay, and many have left various Crytek studios across the world due to these issues.

    It's likely Crytek won't have a very bright future ahead of them unless they can somehow recuperate their current financial losses. I'm not too bothered about a lack of a Ryse sequel, but it would be nice to see Homefront: The Revolution make it to reality.
