  • Far Cry 4 Complete Edition Planned

    far cry 4 complete editionThe whole DLC debacle definitely leaves a lot of room for debate, but if you're patient with buying games you can often get great deals on DLC. In fact, most publishers are now releasing "complete editions" roughly a year after the game release - these versions often cost the same price as the original game but they're also packed with all of the game's DLC.

    Ubisoft has been following this practice for a while, and their next compilation game set for release is Far Cry 4: Complete Edition.

    As expected, Far Cry 4 Complete Edition will come with the full game and all five of the DLC expansions that were released as part of the game's season pass. The new complete edition will also have all of the extra missions, weapons and areas that may have been awarded to players in the past.

    Far Cry 4 Complete Edition is set for release on June 19. So far we don't know whether we'll see a physical release or not. It's entirely possible that the Complete Edition may only be available digitally.

    Either way, Ubisoft has shared some details about the Far Cry 4 complete pack that nobody was expecting. Ubisoft has stated that they "have no plans to release it on Xbox One."

    Considering that the main Far Cry 4 game was released on Xbox One, it seems odd that Ubisoft will now only be releasing the bundle pack to PlayStation 4 and PC. We've seen a lot of exclusivity deals for the PlayStation 4 recently, but Ubisoft are rarely ever the company to make such arrangements.

  • Upcoming Battlefield Hardline DLC Detailed

    battlefield hardline dlcThe first Battlefield Hardline DLC has now been announced by Visceral Games and some of the content we can expect to find in the expansion has been detailed.

    The first Battlefield Hardline DLC has been called Criminal Activity. As expected, Criminal Activity will come with four new maps. The expansion may include other content as well but at this point in time it has not be announced by Visceral Games or EA.

    Two of the new Battlefield Hardline maps will be set at night, whilst the other two will be set at day. All four maps will be set in Florida and California so we can expect to be fighting in an urban environment. Personally I think urban maps are the best settings for Hardline, so it's great to see we’ll be getting some more city action soon.

    Unfortunately no solid release date for Criminal Activity has yet been revealed. We do know that the next DLC pack for Battlefield Hardline, which is scheduled for release after Criminal Activity will be launching in the summer of 2015. This means that we should see Criminal Activity anywhere from now till the start of summer.

    No pricing has been given for the Criminal Activity DLC as of yet but it will come as part of the season pass, so if you're a Battlefield Premium user you'll be able to pick up Criminal Activity for free. Premium members will also gain access to the DLC expansion two weeks before standard players.

  • New Yoshimitsu Revealed for Tekken 7

    new yoshimitsu tekken 7Bandai Namco has finally announced that Yoshimitsu will be returning to the franchise in Tekken 7. With Yoshimitsu being one of my favorite fighting characters of all time, I was pretty excited to hear the news, but Bandai Namco has done something a little... strange with him.

    If you look back to previous Tekken games, you'll notice that Yoshimitsu never really has one appearance style. He'll always have drastically different costumes in each game. For those who don't keep an eye on the series it's easy to lose track of what Yoshimitsu actually looks like.

    The latest rendition of Yoshimitsu for Tekken 7 is beyond a shadow of a doubt the weirdest we've ever seen him before. Yoshimitsu now has a number of tentacles branching off of his face.

    Yes, that's right. We've been tricked. Yoshimitsu has been a space squid on legs all this time. Whilst you may not personally like the new Yoshimitsu looks it's important to note that there are bound to be plenty of costume options and clothing items to create a Yoshimitsu that's more in lines with the original.

    And whilst Yoshimitsu's appearance is so different, his fighting style is still the same and that's all that really matters. Right?

    So far we still don't know when Tekken 7 will be released internationally. The game is already widely available in Japan. We'll keep you updated about the launch details for Tekken 7 as more information comes in. Hopefully the western release dates will be announced soon.

  • Upcoming Battlefield 4 DLC Will be Free

    battlefield hardline dlcBattlefield 4 has already had a season pass but DICE aren't quite done with developing content for the game just yet. However, instead of charging players extra on top of all the other additional DLC costs already tied onto Battlefield 4, DICE has made the noble choice to release all of the future DLC content for free.

    Whilst previous DLC will still cost players the same it does today, any new content created by DICE and released for Battlefield 4 from this day forwards will be absolutely free to all players.

    So far there are a lot of details that haven't been shared by DICE, but we do know that they are working on some new maps, including night time maps. The night maps should be variants of previously released maps. So far we already know that Siege of Shanghai, Zavod 311, and Golmud Railway will be receiving nighttime variants. A new community-made map is also in the works and should be released for free in the not too distant future.

    A new patch is planned for this Spring and it will come with some new content too. As well as fixing up some bugs, the Spring patch will add in five new weapons and the Gunmaster game mode.

    For those new to the Battlefield series, Gunmaster plays out just like other Gun Games. You'll start with one weapon and each kill will reward you with a new weapon. There are seventeen weapons to get through until you finally get given the knife. A knife kill will end the game.

  • DICE Explains Why There are no Battlefront Space Battles

    no battlefront space battlesNo space battles. Star Wars Battlefront with no space battles. I found myself saying this over and over when I first heard it, but as the idea sank in, I've become more accepting of the idea. I'm not entirely convinced Battlefront by DICE will be a great game, but I'm ready to see what they make of it.

    According to DICE, there were some interesting design choices made that decided the fate of space battles in Battlefront. DICE's Patrick Bach revealed the following statement in an interview with Official PlayStation Magazine UK.

    "We want players to stay in the same environment - we don't want players to fly off and do something over *here.* It's about the Battlefront experience, so we want to keep you in-atmosphere and fighting with the infantry."

    The one part about this sentence that doesn't seem to make sense to me is "It's about the Battlefront experience." DICE seem to be doing a lot to the franchise to take it away from the original Battlefront experience, and by removing space battles, this takes DICE's reimagination of the game even further from the Battlefront we've come to know and love.

    I doubt Battlefront will inherently be a bad game, but DICE really have to be careful with how they treat the IP. Let's hope that Battlefront turns out to be the game we've all dreamt of when it releases in April next year. Hopefully we'll see a bit more of Battlefront, including some gameplay, at E3 later this year.

  • New Assassin's Creed Detailed

    new assassin’s creedUnsurprisingly, Ubisoft is gearing up to announce a brand new Assassin's Creed title. Last week, invitations for a world premiere revealing for the next Assassin's Creed title were sent out to the press. The new Assassin's Creed game will be revealed on Tuesday.

    Previous rumors suggested that the new Assassin's Creed game was going to be called Victory. This seemed like a fitting name at the time - the next game in the franchise is expected to be set in Victorian London. However, new rumors are suggesting that the new Assassin's Creed title will instead be called Syndicate.

    We're not sure why Ubisoft would choose this name over Victory but we're bound to find out more at the world premiere revealing. If you think back to the last Assassin's Creed game, Unity, the name Syndicate seems more fitting, even though it may not have any real correlation with the actual game content or story.

    Unity was released last year and it was met with a lot of distaste from critics and the gaming community as a whole. It wasn't exactly a bad game - it was just badly made. It had too many bugs, glitches and game problems that made it quite unplayable for a long time.

    Hopefully Ubisoft has learned from their mistakes. We should hopefully learn more about Assassin's Creed Syndicate and its release date later this week. We'll make sure to keep you updated as new information comes in.

  • Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 Announced

    tony hawks pro skater 5At long last, Activision has finally confirmed that a new Tony Hawk game is coming and they've even given some details about the game along with it. The new Tony Hawk has been titled Pro Skater 5.

    As the name suggests, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 will follow on from the first four original games in the franchise. Taking the game back to it's roots, we're bound to see game mechanics and features that were dropped out of the newer titles.

    Tony Hawk himself has been suggesting for a while that a new Tony Hawk game is in the works but this is the first time we've heard anything from Activision.

    The studio responsible for the development of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 is Robomodo. Whilst they're by no means a bad development studio, they're perhaps best known for their other Tony Hawk titles, Shred and Ride. Robomodo also created the HD remake of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater.

    It will be interesting to see what Robomodo can do with Pro Skater 5. They are probably the most qualified team in the world right now to be given the job of bringing Tony Hawk back to life, but we've not really seen if Robomodo can do a good job at making a "proper" Tony Hawk game yet.

    So far we do not know anything about a release date for Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5. A lot of the details have been saved for exclusive features for various publications so we'll have to wait a little while before we can find out more.

  • More Black Ops 3 Details Explained

    black ops 3 details multiplayerTreyarch just keep spilling the beans on Black Ops 3, which is great because the game sounds like it’s going to be a lot different to previous games developed by them. Recently, Treyarch gave details on the Black Ops 3 Pick 10 system, ADS mechanics and more.

    In Black Ops 2, the Pick 10 system was hugely praised by the COD community. Thankfully the Pick 10 system will be returning to Black Ops 3. Everything is mostly the same with the Pick 10 system, but there have been a few changes made to the way it works.

    Firstly, the Wildcards will still be in Black Ops 3. Players can equip up to six different Wildcards but each Wildcard will take up a certain amount of points as per usual.

    Interestingly, the entire attachment system will be different in Black Ops 3. Weapon optics are now placed in their own separate slot. If you use the right Wildcards you can equip up to five attachments onto a primary weapon, as well as an optic. Secondary weapons can have up to two attachments and an optic.

    You can create your own weapons, attachments attached, in the new Gunsmith feature that will be added to Black Ops 3.

    ADS has also been improved in Black Ops 3 so that aiming down the sights of a sniper is a lot smoother. Apparently powerful snipers will be balanced slightly to adjust to these new changes.

  • Banjo Kazooie Successor Hits Kickstarter

    banjo kazooie yooka layleeA successor to the ever popular Banjo Kazooie franchise hit Kickstarter and it blew up the internet.

    We've all been wanting a new (decent) Banjo Kazooie game for years but it seems that Rare either has no interest or they've been too busy on other projects such as Kinect Sports Rivals. Thankfully a team of ex-Rare employees has banded together to make a development company called Playtonic Games and they are set to bring life to Banjo Kazooie again.

    Playtonic Games recently posted up a Kickstarter page for their upcoming game. Named Yooka-Laylee, the game will feature the same 3D buddy-duo platformer experience that made Banjo Kazooie so popular. Yooka-Laylee will be filled with all sorts of collectibles for players to find in the world. This time round, collectibles will play a meaningful part in the way new areas of the world are opened up.

    The audio and art team working on Playtonic Games are also going for a very Banjo Kazooie-esque theme and the main environment artist is Steven Hurst, the same guy responsible for the environments in Banjo Kazooie and Viva Pinata.

    Perhaps the most amazing of all so far is the Kickstarter goal for Yooka-Laylee. Playtonic Games were originally hoping to reach $270,000 to fund the development of the game. Within just a few days the funding has already reached close to 2 million and there is still over 30 days left to go. It'll be interesting to see just how much Playtonic Games can raise for Yooka-Laylee.

  • Silent Hills has Been Cancelled

    It was almost expected at this point but unfortunately Konami has cancelled the development for Silent Hills and much to our dismay the game will no longer be released.

    The development studios behind Silent Hills have always dealt with internal problems it seems, and as a result the latest Silent Hills game will never see the light of day. In a brief statement, Konami said, "Konami is committed to new Silent Hill titles, however the embryonic 'Silent Hills' project developed with Guillermo del Toro and featuring the likeness of Norman Reedus will not be continued,"

    What's interesting about this is that Konami still aren't putting down the Silent Hills IP for good. This may mean that we could see a Silent Hills game from Konami in the future. The likelihood of that happening is quite slim at this point though. The studio doesn't exactly look in great shape at this point, especially after cutting out Hideo Kojima from the equation.

    Norman Reedus from The Walking Dead was also set to star in Silent Hills as the main protagonist but since the game has now been cancelled his contract period with him has expired.

    Reedus posted on Twitter mentioning the cancellation of Silent Hills as well.

    "Super bummed about this was really looking forward to it. Hopefully it'll come back around. Sorry everyone."

    Thankfully we are still going to be getting Metal Gear Solid V but if it were still a year or two away from development there's a good chance that it could have been cancelled as well.
