  • The Division's Multiplayer Elements Detailed

    the division multiplayerWhilst Tom Clancy's The Division has been known as an 'MMO FPS' for some time, new details have emerged that suggest the game will take a similar approach to Destiny when it comes to multiplayer content. In a new Gamespot preview, it was revealed how players would be locked in to their own world, apart from other players in many cases, however there would be certain areas, named Dark Zones, which would allow players to interact with each other.

    In the Dark Zones, players could choose to attack or avoid other players in the same area, however once out of a dark zone, you will not come across other players in the same fashion.

    It seems as if the multiplayer and social aspects of the Division have been made to a point where players can enjoy the campaign and mission aspects of the game without being interrupted by a bad player.

    However, there will be opportunities for players to interact with each other, which opens up an almost living feeling to the open world. It's an approach that we've recently seen in Destiny, and the blending of open multiplayer areas and single-player only locations was surprisingly smooth.

    Hopefully The Division will manage the multiplayer and singleplayer aspects of the game appropriately, it would be nice to see a stronger level of interaction between players than there is on Destiny currently, but on the other end of the scale, it's important to understand how too much interaction with other players may make a negative impact on overall player experience.

  • Bungie May Consider Adding Destiny Matchmaking for Raids

    destiny matchmaking for raidsThere were many key multiplayer components that never made it into Destiny, including voice chat, and a decent matchmaking system, and whilst these features were not added at launch, Bungie have suggested that such features may eventually be added if the community requested them.

    One of the mentioned features included a proper matchmaking system for the raids in Destiny. So far, it can be difficult to find a decent group of players willing to complete a raid, and some players have voiced their frustration about this.

    One of the most popular raids at the time of writing is the Vault of Glass, but without a group of friends to play with, it's proven difficult for some players to complete, considering that there is no matchmaking available for this raid.

    Bungie talked about this issue, and described that whilst they would like raids to be more accessible, some of the stories of players interacting with one another are a reason why matchmaking wasn't added into the game at launch. David Dague from Bungie made a post to address the issue.

    "The Raid was designed for solid teams of killers who have made a commitment to solve a dense and explosive riddle. Most of the raiding parties who have emerged victorious from the Vault of Glass have sworn that one weak link would have doomed their chain.

    "There have been other stories, of course. We've heard tell of Guardians who met each other just outside the door that leads into that vault. Strange tales have reached our ears - tales of total strangers who have banded together to see the Raid all the way through to a triumphant finale.

    "Those stories surprise us, but the players of our games always have. The best I can do to answer your question is to let you know that you've been heard. We're having conversations about how Matchmaking might support the more challenging activities in Destiny. It's a start. Keep sounding off about it, and maybe someday some matchmade Fireteam mates will hear you, too."

    Personally, I see no harm in adding matchmaking to difficult raids, this approach would at least give solo players a slight chance at completing the mission.

  • Agent Locke Could be Playable Character in Halo 5

    halo 5 agent lockeAgent Locke is a new character to the lore of Halo that will make his first appearance in the live actions series, Halo Nightfall, however, the actor that plays Locke suggests the character will play a big part in Halo 5: Guardians as well.

    In fact, according to actor Mike Colter, the man who plays Agent Locke, the main protagonist in Halo 5 may instead be Agent Locke instead of the Master Chief.

    Colter revealed in a recent interview with X-One magazine that "I'm a playable character in Halo 5." Colter went on to explain that, "Once Halo: The Master Chief Collection is released, and then Halo 5 comes out shortly thereafter, you're basically going to be playing a game with me as the primary character.

    "I'll have some cool weaponry, and some cool abilities, because by that time I'll be a Spartan IV."
    "What's not known, is whether I'm a friend or foe," Colter suggested. "The relationship between Master Chief and Jameson Locke is going to be interesting. Because what's the outcome?
    We can't really confirm or deny any of this information at this point as 343 Industries have yet to respond, but it would certainly turn the scales if Agent Locke ended up becoming the main protagonist to the current Halo trilogy.
    It wouldn't be the first time players have been able to play another character in the Halo franchise - in Halo 2, half of the campaign missions were played through the eyes of the Arbiter.

  • Official Xbox One "Mini" Controller Announced

    Xbox One Mini ControllerMicrosoft have just announced a brand new controller for their Xbox One - it has been branded the Xbox One Mini controller, and as the name suggests, it's a lot smaller than the traditional Xbox One game pad.

    The Xbox One Mini controllers looks like a thinner, shiner version of the Xbox 360 controller, and it will in black, green and a black green combo color. Whilst the price of the new controller has not yet been revealed, the release date has been set for October 17th.

    The controller has been built by Power A, in co-operation with Microsoft, as an officially licensed Xbox One controller, however, in our eyes, it just doesn't look nice enough to warrant a purchase.

    It's likely the new Power A officially licensed controller will be slightly cheaper to offer Xbox One players an opportunity to grab more pads on a budget, but when it comes to controllers, we feel it's important to go big or go home.

    The new Power A controller will be wired, and no wireless option will be available, and there's no way of knowing just how well the pad will hold up - the images certainly make the controller look a lot shoddier than the official Xbox pad.

    If you're looking for something more impressive than the standard controller and don't trust the quality of the new Power A pad, you should check out our great custom controller creator and create a new Xbox One controller that looks badass and will withstand many heavy gaming sessions.

  • October PlayStation Plus Free Games Lineup Finally Revealed

    ps plus gamesAfter a two week delay, Sony have finally revealed the next lineup for the monthly free PlayStation Plus games, and for October, PS Plus subscribers are in for a big treat.

    Firstly, DRIVECLUB has now been released, and players can pick up a free copy of the game with a limited amount of features - whilst DRIVECLUB has debuted this month, it will remain free for PS Plus subscribers forever.

    The PlayStation Plus version of DRIVECLUB is fairly limited. For example, PS Plus subscribers who do not pay for the game will only get access to 10 different cars and 11 different tracks to race on. In essence, the PS Plus version of DRIVECLUB is more like an extended demo.

    As for the actual October PlayStation Plus games, The PlayStation 4 has Dust: An Elysian Trail and Spelunky available for free this month.

    On PlayStation 3, Batman Arkham Asylum has been put up for free, and players can also grab Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystaria. Finally, for the PS Vita, both Pix the Cat, a new intense arcade game, and Rainbow Moon, a JRPG style game, have been put up for free.

    I'd say October looks like a good month for PS Plus subscribers, and if I don't get a chance to try any of the games released this month, I'll definitely be giving DRIVECLUB a go at some point. Besides DRIVECLUB, Batman Arkham Asylum may be the best offering this month, but all of the other titles are worth trying too.

  • The Division Gameplay Shown

    the division gameplayAt EGX this year, Ubisoft held a developer session of upcoming Tom Clancy’s The Division, showing off in-game footage, screenshots and details of the game's progress.

    If you have been interested in the Division at any point, then I'd definitely suggest checking it out. Ubisoft have been working alongside developer Massive to create Tom Clancy's The Division, and it has long been one of my most anticipated games for the new generation of consoles.

    After the huge hype following Watch_Dogs, it's easy to be way of whether The Division will live up to what it's trying to portray, but the 20 minute developer session really does the game justice, and I hope that the game will play like that in the hands of the average gamer.

    For those unaware, Tom Clancy's The Division is aimed to be a new third person MMO game with cover based shooter elements. The game will focus on a world that portrays the vulnerability of the society within the United States, and follows events after a disease spreads through the country, causing collapse to the US, within just five days.

    The concept behind Tom Clancy's The Division is really impressive, and I personally cannot wait to get my hands on it. Hopefully we will see more footage of the game as we near closer to the release date of Tom Clancy’s The Division.

    The Division will be released at some point next year for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC.

  • Destiny DLC Content Revealed by Glitch

    destiny dlc glitchThere has been a lot of controversy behind the idea of DLC - whilst the concept of extra content after a game's launch is pretty much universally accepted, developers who release games with the sole intention of incrementally releasing paid-for content following the games launch is often frowned upon, especially when the content has already been created before launch.

    This seems to be the case with Destiny, a brand new collaboration by Bungie and Activision. A new glitch has revealed what looks to be new areas of the game currently not accessible by players.

    Whilst it's not confirmed that this glitch shows off DLC content, it's certainly not available in-game legitimately as of yet, so Bungie are either deciding to add it in later for free, or as part of the DLC packs.

    For Earth, players have found one new Strike mission and four new story missions, located in the North East section of the map.

    For the Moon, two new strikes have been found, and a level 28 high end raid was discovered. Venus has a brand new story mission, and Mars has a brand new level 20 strike. The reef has been discovered to have a level 28 raid, and the Crucible has a special tier based event with rewards for players who win consecutive games.

    Honestly, I'm a bit disappointed that this content isn't in the game already, but I guess Bungie, and particular Activision, have chosen this route, and there's not really much we can do besides from either pay or not play.

  • October Xbox Live Games with Gold Deals Announced

    xbox live games with goldI have started to quietly anticipate the release of the Xbox Live Games with Gold and PlayStation Plus free games each month, and like clockwork, each month new games are announced, and thousands of players bag a bunch of titles for free.

    This month, Microsoft has announced a few new games for the Games with Gold promotion, some of which players may enjoy.

    The first title released as part of the October Xbox Live Games with Gold promotion is Battlefield: Bad Company 2, and whilst this game is now incredibly old, when compared to the lifespan of the Xbox 360, it is still a great title, and if you haven't played it, I'd definitely suggest giving it a try. Many old school Battlefield fans have named Bad Company 2 the last "good" Battlefield game, but you'll have to make your own mind up about that one.

    Bad Company 2 will be available to download for free till October 15th, and a day later, Darksiders 2 will be put up for free. Darksiders 2 is another old title, but it's important to remember both of these titles are AAA games, so I don't think there's worth complaining about it. Both of the aforementioned titles are for Xbox 360.

    As for the Xbox One, Chariot has been put up for free - it is a new arcade game developed by Canadian developers Frima. Chariot will debut on the Xbox One in October, so it's pretty nice to see it being offered for free - the game will be available till the end of October.

  • New Destiny Patch Nerfs Engram Farming

    destiny engram farmingAfter reaching level 20, a lot of players in Destiny have resorted to strange methods to try and collect the most amount of loot possible in a short time period in the hopes to acquire new legendary and excotic equipment.

    The most popular engram farming method involved standing in a certain spot, firing at a cave full of enemies, reloading, and then firing again as soon as they spawn, typically just 5 to 10 seconds later.

    A week ago, this area in Destiny was always occupied with players working together to farm the hell out of that cave, but Bungie has noticed this strange behaviour in players, and whilst they praised their attempts at finding a engram farming method so quickly, they have since nerfed the cave, making respawn times from enemies in certain areas much larger.

    Bungie addressed the issue by saying, "The social experience of a cave farming run is amazing: the herding to get a team of Guardians all behind the line and firing in the right direction, the rush to grab the loot, the scramble when the panic wave starts, the beckoning glow from inside the cave."

    "The speed at which the community organised around this activity was inspiring and humbling to us."
    "But shooting at a black hole for hours on end isn't our dream for how Destiny is played. Our hope is that social engagement in public spaces is only one part of the Destiny experience. Expect changes soon which decrease the efficiency of cave farming and correspondingly increase engram drops from completing activities."
