  • Civilization Revolution Free in Xbox Live Games with Gold Promotion

    games with gold civilization

    Just as information about Sony's free game lineup for March was released, we're hearing rumors about what games may make it into Microsoft's similar loyalty program, Xbox Live Games with Gold.

    So far, nothing has been made official, but according to WorthPlaying, a pretty reputable source when it comes to this stuff, Civilization Revolution will be one of the titles made available in this month's Games with Gold promotion.

    Civ Revolution is a pretty fun game, but it has been out since 2008 now, and whilst Microsoft is offering 6 year old games to their loyal gamers, Sony is giving away free copies of Tomb Raider, a game that was released just 1 year ago.

    Of course, Microsoft could be giving no games away at all, so we shouldn't really complain at these free titles, but still, it would be nice if the guys behind Xbox decided to put a bit more thought into the loyalty rewards for those paying a monthly subscription to get the most out of their consoles.

    So far, there's no details on what game will be accompanying Civilization Revolution later on in the month, but let’s hope it's something enjoyable. If you haven’t played any Civilization games, Revolution is definitely a good way to get into the series. Back in 2008 I absolutely loved it. You'll have till the end of the first half of the month to download Civilization Revolution to your games library, at which point the game will be replaced with the next March title planned this month.

  • Tomb Raider and Dead Nation Part of March's PS Plus Instant Game Collection

    tomb raider free

    Sony have always been fairly generous with their PS Plus loyalty features, but the most appealing feature that has given many gamers a reason to subscribe is the access to the monthly PS Plus Instant Game Collection.

    The Instant Game Collection is a rotation of video games that players will be able to download for free each month. At the end of the month, a new set of games is put on the rota, and the other games are no longer available for those who hadn't already redeemed them.

    This month, the most recent Tomb Raider title will be put up for free for all US PlayStation Plus subscribers. The game will be the last gen version, and not the new definitive version. However, there certainly isn't any complaining to do, because Tomb Raider was a very amazing game that was released quite recently.

    For PlayStation 4 owners, players will be treated to Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition. These two games will be available for the first half of the month, whilst later in the month, Thomas Was Alone, Lone Survivor: Director's Cut, and Vita exclusives Unit 13 and Monster Hunter Freedom Unite will be put on the Instant Game Collection rota.

    Despite the PS Plus subscription working out as a monthly subscription, many gamers have got more than their money's worth out of the loyalty programs, and the Instant Game Collection alone proves to be a great way to save money on recently released titles.

  • Four New COD Ghosts DLC Packs Released

    new COD ghosts dlc][new COD ghosts dlc

    Activision has just released four new DLC content packs for Call of Duty Ghosts that will be separate from the season pass. All four packs are small additions to the game that only change cosmetics, and they have all been released and been made available for purchase since the start of this week.

    The four packs have been named 'personalization packs' and they include a few new items to change the appearance of your squad members in-game.

    The first pack is the Makarov Legend Pack. This pack allows players to don the appearance of Vladimir Makarov, one of the most well known villains in the whole of Call of Duty. On top of the multiplayer Makarov skin, the Makarov Legend Pack comes with a themed weapon camo, a new reticle, a player patch, playercard and background. This pack can be picked up for $3.99

    The second pack is the Zakhaev Special Character pack. This pack also includes another Call of Duty villains. This pack only includes a skin, and can be picked up for $1.99.

    The last two packs are also two skin packs; the Hazmat Special Character for $1.99, and the Rorke Special Character for $1.99.

    If you haven't been that interested in COD Ghosts, rumors suggest that there will be a demo made available this month for players to give the game a go before buying. No details yet on when the demo will be made available, but it's likely to be running over a weekend, and will end on the following Monday.

  • Possible Leaked Drive Club Release Date Shared on Twitter

    drive club release leak

    Drive Club has been one of the few games that has really got everybody's attention, and the recent delay in development has lead a few gamers to being fidgety and impatient. However, if a new rumored leak is anything to go by, we may now know exactly when Drive Club will be released, and it isn't that far away at all.

    According to a user on PSNation, the DriveClub twitter account posted a tweet, only to have it removed seconds later. The tweet had information about the release date for Drive Club, but so far there's no proof to say what the user saw was actually real, or just a forged image.

    The tweet in question read 'Mark your calendars 9.4.14' #DRIVECLUB,' which would translate to either September 4th, 2014, or April 9th, 2014. Seeing as the Drive Club developers are from Europe, it may make more sense to be in the European format, which would mean April 9th, 2014.

    It could be possible that this image was the real deal, as this kind of stuff does happen every now and again. This strange twitter 'slip up' is a bit odd though, especially seeing as we haven't heard anything else about the release of Drive Club in a while. Either way, if the release is set for April, we'll most likely hear more about it very soon. Hopefully by the time the game is released, it will be smooth, polished and ready for playing. Drive Club has had a hype train behind it for a few months now, so a few errors or gameplay issues could cause the train to derail.

  • First Screenshot of Naval Strike DLC for BF4 Released

    naval strike dlc bf4

    Just as the player appreciation month for Battlefield's players comes to an end, DICE has released a brand new screenshot to show off the upcoming Battlefield 4 DLC pack, which has been named Naval Strike.

    The new DLC pack has been scheduled to launch later this month, although Battlefield Premium players will be able to access the content two weeks before any other players. As the name Naval Strike suggests, the DLC will be filled with content focused on a water-filled theme.

    This DLC pack will include four new maps set in the South China Sea. All four levels will have some element of water based combat, however, it's unclear what these maps will actually consist of.

    On top of the four new maps, the Naval Strike DLC pack will also come with five new weapons, a new amphibious hovercraft vehicle that has been shown in the released Naval Strike screenshot, and a new mode called Carrier Assault. This game has been rumored to be similar to Titan mode in Battlefield 2142, where players have the sole objective to destroy the other players airship.

    Considering that the Naval Strike DLC is water-based, it's likely the airships will be replaced with airship carriers or other large ships.

    Naval Strike is the first DLC planned for this year, and DICE plan to release four more by the end of Summer 2014 - players can save money and access the content earlier by purchasing the $50 Battlefield Premium pack.

  • Titanfall Leaks Reveal Generations Mode

    Titanfall Prestige Mode

    Somehow, it looks as if pretty much all information about Titanfall has been let out into the wild, and through all of these leaks, we can learn a bunch of new information about the upcoming Microsoft exclusive first person shooter.

    The most interesting leak that's been picked up after the maps leak is something that pertains to the information of a prestige system similar to the ones found in Call of Duty games.

    According to the leaker, the prestige system in Titanfall will be called Generations, and when a player decides to reset their rank to Generation 2, they'll lose all of their unlocked perks, and they will start back at level 1.

    The bonuses of Generation 2 is that players will receive 110% XP at all times, and a unique badge to show off in-game. All burn card earnt in Generation 1 will be kept, and no details have been given on whether there will be any more Generations, and what bonuses players may receive for prestiging more than once.

    It has also been revealed by the same leaker that there will be a new game mode called Pilot Hunter. In this game mode, players will only be awarded points for killing enemy pilots; the real players in the game. This will mean killing titans and AI will not award players points, focusing the game on traditional FPS player combat.

    Finally, the leaker suggest that there will be 9 campaign levels that players will be able to play online. These 9 levels will be played out as Attrition and Hardpoint modes, and players will be able to decide whether they want to play as the IMC or the Militia before playing.

  • New DLC May Make Alucard Playable in Castlevania 2

    Lord of Shadows 2 DLC][Lord of Shadows 2 DLC

    The new Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2 video game has been fairly enjoyable, and I've actually been surprised at how much I've enjoyed playing through the game revival. However, unlike it's older predecessors, Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2 lives in an age filled with DLC and extra content, so to get the most fun out of the experience, we'll have to wait for Konami to release their planned DLC packs.

    According to a forum member on CS.RIN.RU by the name of UbiSergei, the first Lords of Shadow 2 DLC pack will be called Revelations, and it may allow players to play as Alucard. The story of the DLC will let players discover a new plotline and understand "the true extent of Alucard's involvement."

    Alucard has been in the Castlevania series since Castlevania 3, so it'll be interesting to see how big fans will react to being able to play as the character. In Lords of Shadow 2, Alucard's father, Dracula, plays a pretty large role in the plotline, so it'll be interesting to see where the Revelations DLC may take us.

    For those more interested in the gameplay content instead of the story, the Revelations DLC is expected to come filled with "rich new environments and challenging puzzles" as well as various different creatures for Alucard to fight.

    As this information is all unofficial at this point, it's best to take it all with a little grain of salt until we hear something more official from the game's creators.

  • Xbox One Gets Another Cut in UK

    xbox one titanfall bundle

    Last week it was revealed that the Xbox One Titanfall bundle will be getting a 30 Euros discount in the UK, bringing the price of the next gen console slightly closer to the PlayStation 4's price. However, at the time, it was clear that the PlayStation 4 was still a better deal, and despite the price drop from 430 to 399 Euros, the Xbox One Titanfall bundle still wasn't cheap enough to sway any PlayStation gamers to the Microsoft side of the fence.

    This week, GameStop has decided to bump it up a notch by reducing the Xbox One's price as well, bringing the console price even lower than the original price cut. The console bundle has now been reduced another 30 Euros, making the console price 369 Euros.

    This bundle also comes packed with a digital copy of Titanfall, a standard controller, the Kinect sensor, and of course the console as well. The Titanfall standard SKU will also come with a headset for talking on Xbox LIVE, and a 1 month free trial of Xbox LIVE Gold.

    Unfortunately these price drops are still only in effect in the United Kingdom, however if you're living elsewhere, you may be able to pick up a free digital copy of Titanfall if you purchase a new Xbox One after March 11th. This is part of a new deal to make the Xbox One more accessible to anybody that just can't keep their hands off of Titanfall.

    If you don't want to splash out on a new console, you could always wait for the Xbox 360 release of Titanfall, which is planned for March 25th.

  • Halo Spartan Assault Owners Gifted with Forza 5 Halo Car

    halo spartan assault forza 5

    If you purchased Halo Spartan Assault before February 14th, it probably means two things; you're a big Halo fan and love anything related to the series, and you're going to get a sweet new ride in Forza 5, courtesy of the Halo community at Halo Waypoint.

    Last year, around the same time that Forza 5 was released, Halo Waypoint teamed up with Turn 10 to create a beautifully designed Halo Spartan Assault themed 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 302 for a few special people. Whilst it may not be as cool as the Forza warthog that got released in a previous Forza title, it did strengthen the bond between the Forza 5 development team and the Halo community just a little more.

    Anyway, the awesome 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 302 has now been made available for anybody that decided to purchase Halo Spartan Assault for Xbox One before February 14th, so if you're in that group, you should now be able to find your awesome Halo inspired muscle car inside of your Message Center on Forza 5, under the gifts section.

    Unlike DLC cars and other extra content cars, you will not have to purchase the Spartan themed vehicle, and as soon as you "download" it, it will appear in your garage. I'd have to say the car looks pretty wicked.

    Unfortunately, if you purchased Halo Spartan Assault after February 14th, you will not be gifted this car, which kinda sucks, especially if you purchased it on February 15th or something, but at the end of the day, you win some, you lose some. Maybe you could pick up a Halo themed livery in the storefront.

  • All Titanfall Weapons Leaked

    all titanfall weapons

    The Titanfall beta was great fun - it captured the fast paced adrenaline fueled environment of Call of Duty and banked on it by including jetpacks, parkour, and crazy giant mechs. And, despite previous concerns, the AI in the game work really well, too.

    A lot of the people I've spoken to that have also experienced the Titanfall beta have stated that they really enjoyed the game too, but there was one thing that didn't come up in our conversations.

    What I'm talking about is replay value - in the beta, there were just two levels, and two standard Titans. Players could only level up to rank 14, and there was a very limited weapon customization system. I was worried that Titanfall could get boring really quickly, and without any idea of what content the game could offer, I can't be the only one that has wondered whether Titanfall would be worth buying at launch.

    Luckily, a lot of information has leaked, and we can get a great idea of what content we can expect. Firstly, as previously rumored, there will likely be 14 different maps at launch; a massive jump up from just the two in the beta.

    There have also been picture leaks of a few more primary and secondary weapons. The roster isn't huge, but on top of the five beta primaries, and two beta secondaries, there will be a C.A.R SMG, two new rifles; the G2A4 Rifle & Hemlock BF-R, a more powerful sniper, and the Spitfire LMG. There will also be a revolver-like sidearm.
