  • Mortal Kombat X Receives Release date and Pre-order Details

    mortal kombat x - CopyMore details for the upcoming Mortal Kombat X have been revealed by Warner Bros. including a confirmed release date and some information on the benefits of pre-ordering the game today.

    Firstly, Warner Bros. have revealed that Mortal Kombat X has been set for release on April 14, 2015, and the game will be readily available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and the PC at this date.

    Secondly, Warner Bros. mentioned that players who pre-order Mortal Kombat X before it's release date will receive Goro, an additional character for the game. Goro is a four armed character who first appeared in the original Mortal Kombat as a non-playable boss.

    So far, it's unclear whether Goro will be made available to those who do not pre-order at some point after the release of Mortal Kombat X, or whether Goro will remain as an exclusive for early adopters. Goro is a pretty important character in the Mortal Kombat series, so it would be a shame if he was left as an exclusive to those who pre-order. It would also seem unfair if Goro proved to be a better character than most other characters that those who did not pre-order would be able to choose from.

    Either way, we're bound to hear more about the characters that will be present in Mortal Kombat X, the DLC planned, and further details on the pre-order bonus as we near the release date of the game, which will be in seven months time.

  • The Last of Us Remastered Sold 1 Million Copies

    last of us remastered sales - CopyIf you've ever been anywhere near any video game retail stores recently, you've probably seen The Last of Us Remastered quickly jump to the top of the PlayStation 4 charts, so it's unlikely you'd be surprised to hear that the remastered PS4 version of the The Last of Us has managed to sell over 1 million copies already.

    The original The Last of Us managed to sell over 7 million copies on the PlayStation 3, and the Remastered version of the PS4 may be able to get close to that in the coming months. Unsurprisingly, the Last of Us Remastered managed to pull in 632,000 copies in it's first week, whilst The Last of Us sold a little over double that in the same period at 1.3 million copies worldwide.

    If The Last of Us Remastered continues to sell at the same pace it is now, it's possible the two games will manage to reach a combined sale of 10 million copies worldwide, which would be pretty impressive considering the game is a PlayStation exclusive.

    Whilst it's possible The Last of Us 2 could come about, Naughty Dog are currently working on creating a movie adaptation of the game. Before that though, we can expect to see Uncharted 4 for the PlayStation 4. Despite a final date for Uncharted not being revealed as of yet, Uncharted 4 has been predicted to release at some point in 2015, and will remain to be a PlayStation 4 exclusive.

  • Destiny Free Last-Gen Promotion Revealed

    destiny last gen upgrade - CopyIt has been revealed that Bungie plan to provide a promotion to make it easier for those who own both a new and an old gen console.

    In simple terms, players who purchase either the Xbox 360 version or the PlayStation version of Destiny will be able to upgrade to a new console in the future at no cost. Many developers have provided discounted 'upgrade' promotions that usually allow a player to purchase a PS4 or Xbox One copy of a game for a discounted price, as long as they own the same game for either the PS3 or Xbox 360 respectively. This is the first time a developer has offered a game upgrade for free, which is pretty awesome.

    There are a few rules to the free Destiny promotion - firstly, players must choose to upgrade before January 2015, as the promotion will end after this period, and secondly, players will only be given a digital version of the game to download from either the Xbox Games store or the PSN marketplace.

    Players will also only be able to use the promotion within the same console family. For example, PS3 players will only be able to grab a free version for the PS4, and Xbox 360 players will only be able to grab a free version for the Xbox One.

    Finally, players who upgrade will be able to carry their stats over to their new console as long as they use the same gamer profile for both consoles.

  • New Payday 2 DLC Pokes Fun at Battlefield

    payday 2 dlcPayday 2 developers StarBreeze have just released a new DLC pack that is currently only available on the Steam PC store. The new DLC pack includes new guns, melee weapons masks and gun mods for just $4.99.

    The new Payday 2 DLC has been dubbed the Gage Assault Pack, and it's promotional art, as you can see above, uncoincidentally resembles the splash art from Battlefield 4. It's clear that Payday 2 has been designed to be a lighthearted game with a humorous approach to gameplay, so this fun-poking at Battlefield from StarBreeze is pretty funny.

    Whilst the $4.99 Gaga Assault Pack is currently only available for PC via Steam, it's expected that the DLC pack will eventually be released for other platforms as well, including the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360.

    A more-in depth look at the Gage Assault Pack reveals that there will be a total of four new guns, four melee weapons, four masks, 28 gun mods, new mask materials and patterns, and a total of 10 new achievements. Unfortunately the new pack does not add any additional heists or extra gameplay content.

    Like previous Payday 2 DLC, players can still join up with one another regardless of what DLC each player has. In fact, the original Gage Weapon Pack for Payday 2 added grenade boxes to the game, and players without the DLC could use grenades when partnered up with a player who owns the DLC.

    We'll let you know if we hear anything about a PS3 or Xbox 360 release for the Gage Assault Pack.

  • Minecraft for PS4 Has Gone Live

    minecraft ps4 - CopyAt long last, the PlayStation 4 port for Minecraft has finally been put up for sale after months of development, planning and delayed releases. 4JStudios, the development team responsible for the port, have been working on the PS4 and Xbox One ports before the consoles were even available to the public. However, Minecraft can now be picked up from the PSN store for $19.99.

    If PS3 owners already have a copy of Minecraft on their PlayStation 3, they can 'upgrade' to the new PS4 version of Minecraft for just $4.99. Unfortunately, the promotion is not available for those that have purchased the physical copy of Minecraft for the PlayStation 3 in the past, however going forward all PS3 physical copies of Minecraft will now have pre-packaged codes that will players a $14.99 discount on the PS4 version of the game.

    Minecraft has been planned for the Xbox One as well, however due to a few issues the release has been slightly delayed. The Xbox One version of Minecraft will be released this Friday, and the same $19.99 full price and $4.99 upgrade price will be available on the Xbox One too.

    For those unaware, the new generation ports for Minecraft have a bunch of new features not supported in either the PS3 or Xbox 360 version, including worlds that are 36 times larger than the last-gen versions, better render distance and improved graphics.

    If you're an avid Minecraft fan and enjoy playing the game on your console, the $4.99 upgrade price should be something you may want to consider, as the extra world space will definitely come in handy.

  • Destiny for the Xbox One Needs 40GB Install Space

    destiny xbox one - CopyIt has been revealed that Bungie's brand new open world loot n' shooter game, Destiny, will require a massive 40GB internal memory free on the Xbox One for it to be able to install.

    This news comes from a range of leaks showing off the game case for Destiny and the details on the back of the case. In the small print underneath the promotional images, it clearly states that 40GB hard drive space will be required for players to install the game.

    Whilst these leaks are only directly related to the Xbox One version of Destiny, it's very likely that the PlayStation 4 will receive similar treatment, and 40GB or around that size will most likely be needed on the PS4 too.

    Whilst both the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One come with 500GB hard drives as standard, this space will quickly be used up if games like Destiny are put on the market. Destiny is bound to receive many patches and content packs in the future that will only make the file size even larger too.

    In fact, the day one patch for Destiny has been confirmed to be 300MB in size, making the total file size of Destiny on day one 40.3GB for the Xbox One version of the game.

    Luckily, Microsoft has added external hard drive support for the Xbox One recently, but it's still a shame that the internal memory available is quite limited.

  • Release Date for Bloodborne Confirmed

    bloodborne release dateThe next title within the series of great games released by From Software has now received a confirmed release date, and a lot of fans are getting quite excited.

    In a PlayStation TGS press conference, From Software revealed that the successor to Demon's Souls will be released on February 5, 2015 in Japan. Along with a physical copy of the game, the first initial production will include an art book and soundtrack CD for each unit.

    Whilst Bloodborne isn't a sequel to either Dark Souls or Demon Souls, the gameplay feels similar to the aforementioned titles, and could easily be within the same universe From Software have developed with both Demon Souls and Dark Souls.

    Despite sounding just as cruel as both other games, Bloodborne won't be nearly as punishing, and dying will be as much of a worry as it has been in Dark Souls 2. There will certainly be areas players will find challenging, but the amount of perseverance needed to complete Bloodborne will be a lot less than either of From Software's previous titles.

    "You died a lot in the previous games, and you have to persevere," Bloodborne director, Hidetaka Miyazaki said. "One of our main goals with this game is that sense of punishment - we don't really want to focus on punishing the player.

    "We want to deliver a game that gamers love, so if the gamer likes the game they will definitely like it enough to have that bit of perseverance. But in the way which we're making the game the sense of punishment is much less."

  • Bungie Talks About Plans for Destiny Future Updates

    destiny day one updateIn a new interview, Destiny's director of production, Jonty Barnes, discussed his plans for the near future of Destiny, and Bungie's vision for new content and updates as players start to experience the game once it has been released.

    The release of Destiny is now less than two weeks away, but once the game has been released, Bungie aren't going to be slowing down with development. In fact, they have plans to keep the game updated often.

    On day one, an update for the game has already been planned - this update will include a range of changes that Bungie couldn't quite get into the product before the game went gold. This will include changes to the UI and how easy it is for players to read it and navigate it, and other small tweaks to the overall experience.

    Jonty went onto discussing about improving the game over time to keep players happy with Destiny as a whole, suggesting that Bungie want to keep their players content with the stuff available in-game. "We do have things we're going to change over time that will make those experiences better. You'll see stuff and you'll go, hey, have you seen what they've done to the explore mode recently? Maybe we should do some of that - it seems a lot better."

    "We're going to try to do that for all of the game and build on the world. Having gamers participate in the dialogue about what they would like to see, not just our own team and user research group of gamers coming in and out, it certainly makes - it has done historically for Bungie - our games better," Barnes said.

    It sounds like Bungie are going the right way about making an online game that the players can truly have a say in, and I can't wait to get my hands on the game later this month.

  • GTA V PS4 Port May Have Reworked Radio Station

    gta v ps4 radio stationsAccording to new rumors, the upcoming Grand Theft Auto V rework will come packed with a set of new in-game music tracks for the various radio stations available via radio from a car or a player's home.

    One of the radio stations in Grand Theft Auto V is called Non Stop Pop FM, and according to Cara Delevingne, a model who has been the host of the in-game radio station, players will be able to experience a set of new tracks when the rework is released, along with new content in between songs.

    This update isn't exactly massive, but it's one of the added details that will make the new Grand Theft Auto rework for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and the PC worth buying. Even if you already own GTA V on a previous gen console, the range of new changes to the game should even make purchasing GTA for your new console quite tempting.

    Rockstar could have easily just put the same game onto new consoles with a slightly better resolution and frame rate, but instead they are really embracing the new hardware changes of both the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One to make GTA V the game it could never have been on either the PS3 or the Xbox 360.

    The newly reworked Grand Theft Auto for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One has been anticipated to release this Fall, however the final date has not yet been set in stone. On top of this, details for the PC release are still undecided.

  • New MCC Halo 3 Gameplay Shows off Graphical Changes

    master chief collection halo 3 gameplayWhilst Halo 2 will be getting the largest overhaul in the Master Chief Collection, it's not the only game that's going to be getting a graphical update. In fact, on top of the game supporting 1080P resolution at 60fps across the board for all singleplayer campaigns, Halo 3 has now been confirmed to have a set of new lighting effects and graphical changes that add a bit more detail to the game.

    Whilst the changes aren't as significant as the changes seen in Halo 2, the game certainly looks a lot crisper, and on top of this it plays flawlessly at 60 frames per second, something that the developers have mentioned players will really be able to feel.

    Along with the confirmation, 343 Industries and Microsoft hosted a new gameplay event to showcase the changes made in Halo 3.

    It's really quite exciting to see the game being capable of running at such a high frame rate without any problems, and it's almost a shame it won't end up looking quite as good as Halo 2 will. Despite this, both games should run fairly smoothly on the Xbox One without any issues.

    As expected, Combat Evolved will be getting the same anniversary treatment as the standalone game did, so we don't expect to see any changes there.

    Halo: The Master Chief Collection will release on 11th of November for the Xbox One, and will cost $59.99, despite containing four whole Halo games and hours of great content.
