  • Sleeping Dogs HD May Come to Next Gen Consoles

    sleeping dogs hd remakePreviously there has been talk about a possible Sleeping Dogs sequel, but despite details about the franchises next steps, Square Enix haven't really put much more out there about any new games in the Sleeping Dogs universe.

    What we do know though is that Square Enix certainly doesn't plan to drop the IP after just one title, and we'll probably see a lot more Sleeping Dogs content over the next few years. The next release for the Sleeping Dogs franchise may be sooner than we think, and whilst it may not be a new game, it will be a fresh approach to the original that should open up the game to new players.

    A new product listing on ShopTo, an online games retailer recently suggested that Sleeping Dogs will be getting an HD facelift for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The Sleeping Dogs HD listing was up for a couple of days before ShopTo abruptly removed it without any notification from either ShopTo or Square Enix.

    There's no doubt that this was a slip up on ShopTo's part, but does this listing mean we'll be seeing a Sleeping Dogs HD remake soon? It would be strange for ShopTo to put a listing up for something that doesn't actually exist, so perhaps we will see Sleeping Dogs HD in the near future.

    Hopefully we'll hear something official from Square Enix about Sleeping Dogs fairly soon, if not about the HD remake, then about a brand new game in the franchise instead.

  • LittleBigPlanet Will be Released for PS3

    littlebigplanet 3 ps3 When LittleBigPlanet was announced at E3 this month, details on the release of the title were a little unclear. At first, it was believed that the game would be an exclusive for the PlayStation 4, but new details reveal that the next title in the littleBigPlanet series will in fact be developed for PlayStation 3 as well.

    Despite this new bit of information, nothing's quite set in stone at this point for the PS3 version. It sounds like the developers for LittleBigPlanet 3 definitely plan to get the game released for the old gen PlayStation, but whether or not it will launch alongside the PS4 version, and whether it will come with any drawbacks or not is not clear at this point.

    Last week we had a little look at what Little Big Planet 3 will have to offer, and we decided that it was certainly something to look forward to, especially if you played and enjoyed any of the previous titles in the franchise.

    LittleBigPlanet 3 will have more of a focus on cooperative gameplay than other games have had, and there will be a wide range of new characters with their own skill sets that players will be able to utilize together to complete certain levels.

    LittleBigPlanet was previously planned for a release later this year in November for PlayStation 4.
    It's possible the PS3 version will release at the same time, but we'll keep you updated on news for the PlayStation 3 date as well.

  • Ubisoft Plans to Reimagine Assassins’ Creed Franchise with Brand New AC: Unity

    assassins creed unity e3You may be getting a bit fed up with the constant release of new Assassins' Creed games, but despite there being so many, there's doubt that Ubisoft are working hard to keep things fresh and enjoyable. The last game in the series, Assassin's' Creed IV: Black Flag, was a great new experience for the franchise, and Ubisoft want to make sure things are still as fresh as ever with their latest game, AC: Unity.

    In Assassins' Creed Unity, there will be a larger focus on team play and co-operative work. There will be a set of online-only missions that will allow players to test their single player character in an environment with other players, but this will be a separate experience from the single player game.

    Thanks to next gen hardware, there will also be a big improvement on overall game mechanics, and things from climbing and navigating the world to combat gameplay will have refined systems to make them feel more intuitive and seamless.

    Gameplay will also feel more open; if you fail a mission, instead of reverting back to a checkpoint, new objectives will open up to amend your mistakes and finish the original mission like planned.

    Assassin's Creed Unity will be released this October 28th. The game will be released for just PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, making it the first Assassins' Creed title to be exclusive for current gen consoles, leaving the last gen in the dark.

  • InFamous Last Light Standalone DLC Announced at E3

    inFamous Last LightWhilst InFamous Second Son was only just released this year, Sucker Punch Studios have already been working on new content that takes the InFamous story into new pastures. InFamous Last Light was revealed at E3 this week, and it has been named as a standalone DLC for Second Son that takes a focus on Abigail Walker, AKA Fetch, and the origins of her powers.

    We're not sure why Sucker Punch Studios decided to create the new InFamous content as a standalone package, but it will mean players who are new to the series will be able to play through Last Light without owning InFamous Second Son.

    Hopefully Last Light will have a regular DLC price, despite being a standalone product, however so far we're not sure what the actual price will be, or how much content the standalone DLC will include.

    What we do know though is that if you have enjoyed any of the previous InFamous games, you may want to pick up Last Light as it takes a further delve into the origins of the franchise, and I think the DLC will be quite a story-driven experience. Sucker Punch seem to want to appeal to new players too, though, so I expect the standalone DLC will be free from any major spoilers, and hopefully it will act as a great entry into the franchise.

    InFamous Last Light will be released this August, and you'll be able to pick it up online from the PlayStation Network Store.

  • Sony Announces Little Big Planet 3

    Little Big Planet 3Whether or not you're a fan of the fun and friendly universe of Little Big Planet, there's no doubt that the series has helped to shape part of what it means to own a PlayStation, so I'm sure Sony were pretty excited to announce their third main entry in the franchise, Little Big Planet 3.

    Little Big Planet will bring a bunch of new changes to the LBP franchise, as well as bringing a new roster of characters to the scene. Each of the new characters will have certain attributes that will make them useful for certain situations, adding more of a dynamic to the Little Big Planet experience.

    The most interesting take on the new slew of characters is that players will be encouraged to team up and make use of each character's abilities together to complete certain levels. Sony have definitely tried to focus on cooperative gameplay with Little Big Planet 3, and I think this will make for a great party game or a way to spend the evening with your family.

    When it comes to the level creator, there will be plenty of great tools and content at your fingertips, and all previously created levels in Little Big Planet 1 & 2 will be transferrable over to the third game in the series. All of your old levels will automatically be upgraded with the latest graphics and game mechanics, which is pretty cool.

    Little Big Planet 3 has been set for release this holiday season, and will be exclusive to the PlayStation 4.

  • Uncharted 4 Reveal Trailer Shared at E3

    uncharted 4 E3After the countless leaks over the past few months, we all knew it was coming, but this week Sony finally made things official by showing off a brand new Uncharted 4 reveal trailer at this year's E3.

    If you picked up a PlayStation 3 in the early stages of it's life then you're probably quite familiar with the Uncharted series by now, and you may even feel a certain attachment to the franchise. That's understandable, because the Uncharted series has always been an incredibly enjoyable piece of work, and if the new E3 Uncharted 4 reveal trailer is anything to go by, Sony and Naughty Dog studios are going to make sure that same experience remains true for the latest game in the series.

    Uncharted 4 has been subtitled A Thief's End, perhaps hinting to the end of series protagonist Drake in some fashion, whether his end is met by death, or simply an early retirement is unclear at the moment, but all of the rumors that suggested Uncharted 4 was going to be a lot more story-driven are certainly starting to ring true now.

    The E3 trailer of Uncharted 4 depicts a dialogue between Drake and another character, whilst showing an absolutely beautiful CGI cut scene, that although may not represent actual gameplay, still looks amazing, and is being run straight from a PlayStation 4.

    Uncharted 4: A Thief's End will be released some time in 2015, however pre-orders for the game are now open.

  • DICE Shares Star Wars: Battlefront Trailer at E3

    Star Wars Battlefront E3At last year's E3, something magical happened. Despite the sudden closure of Lucasarts, and the dramatic dump of many great upcoming Star Wars games, DICE somehow managed to announce a brand new Battlefront, a game that many of us have wanted for a very long time.

    This year at E3, things got even better. DICE showed off a brand new trailer for Star Wars: Battlefront, and whilst hardly any gameplay footage was actually shown, it certainly helped to get the crowd hyped.

    The trailer goes into how DICE have spent countless hours revisiting the filming locations of the first three movies, as well as looking into every last detail of the models used for the filming. If you're a Star Wars fan, I think it will truly captivate you, and will leave you with goosebumps.

    Sadly, it looks like we're still a long way off before the game is actually released, but it's good to see DICE sharing their progress with us, and I really do think the new Star Wars: Battlefront game will be an absolute classic.

    DICE also announced Battlefield Hardline alongside Dead Space creator Visceral Games, a game that takes the Battlefield series into new waters with a cops and criminals themed multiplayer and singleplayer experience. Personally I can see a lot more hype behind Battlefront. Star Wars: Battlefront may be released some time in 2015, although I'd advise you not to hold your breath; we may have to wait a little bit longer than that.

  • Crackdown 3 Trailer Shown Off at E3

    crackdown 3 trailerI think a lot of us purchased the original Crackdown just to get access to the Halo 3 beta, but despite this, I, along with many others, found the game to be very enjoyable. Crackdown 2 was not as well received as the first title was, but Microsoft may be able to redeem themselves, as they have just revealed plans to release Crackdown 3 for the Xbox One.

    At E3, Microsoft shared a reveal trailer for Crackdown 3, and it manages to perfectly capture the environments and experiences that the original Crackdown game was best known for. Dave Jones, the original creator for the Crackdown series will be at the head of the latest iteration in the franchise, so hopefully he'll be able to create an experience that will be enjoyable as the first game.

    Despite being the third game in the franchise, Crackdown 3 has simply been named "Crackdown." So far, no details have been given for the release date of the latest Crackdown game, so it's likely the title will have a 2015 release at the earliest. This E3 was a pretty decent one for Microsoft, and it won't be long before the Xbox One has a wide library of games to choose from. Let's just hope Crackdown has decent enough gameplay to make it a title worth owning. I personally have hopes for the new title, but we'll have to wait and see what Microsoft have in store for us.

  • Halo: The Master Chief Collection Definite, Coming This Year

    Halo Master chief collectionA couple of weeks ago, some information about a possible Halo collection was spread around the internet, and whilst at the time it did seem quite likely, it was certainly not official at that point in time. However, Microsoft took to E3 to reveal that Halo: The Master Chief Collection is planned to be released this year for the Xbox One.

    Like previously expected, Halo: The Master Chief Collection will come with all four of the main Halo games, and will be packaged into one standalone experience. Halo 2 will take the focus and will serve as the mainframe for the whole collection, and online multiplayer will be based on Halo 2's infrastructure. This means we can expect dual wielding, elites vs spartans, and pretty much everything we knew Halo 2 to be, including the wide range of strange bugs and glitches.

    Halo 2 will also get a full HD re-texture, similarly to Combat Evolved anniversary, and players will be able to switch between old graphics and new graphics with the tap of a button.

    All campaign levels from all four games will be fully unlocked from the start, allowing players to jump in at any point they feel comfortable with, and new modes will be available that will mix and match campaign levels from all four games to create a fun and varied experience. Halo: The Master Chief Collection will be out later this year for $59.99. The game will also run at a steady 60FPS at 1080P resolution.

  • GTA V Officially Announced for PS4, Xbox One and PC

    GTA v PS4After selling a ridiculous amount of copies on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, it only seemed to make sense for Rockstar to port their latest Grand Theft Auto game over to the new generation of consoles, however, we haven't really heard anything official from Rockstar about such a thing happening since it's first release on to last gen consoles.

    That all changed last night though; Rockstar finally decided to speak and reveal that Grand Theft Auto V is now planned for a release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The new next gen version of Grand Theft Auto V will be released this Fall, and a few changes will be made to the game to take advantage of the new hardware capabilities within both the Xbox One and the PS4.

    Perhaps the biggest notable change for the new version of Grand Theft Auto V will be the across-the-board graphical improvements that will add new lighting effects, increase draw distance, increase texture detail and bring enhanced resolution to the game.

    GTA V on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One will also have denser traffic, increased wildlife, upgraded weather and damage effects, as well as a wide array of other new details. Pre-orders for GTA V on PS4, Xbox One and PC start today. So far, details on the pricing for the next-gen version of Grand Theft Auto V are not clear, but it's likely the game will sell for full price.
