  • GTA Online Beach Bum Pack should be out in November

    Rockstar has previously teased about the upcoming free DLC pack to GTA Online, but they have now confirmed an actual release date for the extra content.

    Rockstar has stated that the Beach Bum DLC pack will be downloadable for free in November. Rockstar also mentioned that the DLC will include "all-new beach themed vehicles and new weaponry that you'll be able to use in both GTA Online and Story Mode".

    On top of this, the Beach Bum DLC pack will add new customization options such as new tattoos and hairstyles, brand new jobs and missions including new gang attacks, survivals, deathmatches and races.

    Later this autumn, we'll also be given access to the first part of the creator tools Rockstar have explained before the release of GTA Online. This will mean that before the end of the year, we will be able to create and play our own death matches and race jobs online with other players.

    Once an event is created, players will be able to like or dislike it just like they can with Rockstar's official content, and high ranking content will become 'Rockstar Verified' and be made more widely available.

    The final bit of news involving new content in GTA Online is to do with the first Stimulus package that Rockstar planned to release before the Beach Bum DLC pack. Rockstar have since delayed the first cash pack until after the release of the next title update so that they can fix more issues beforehand.

  • Titanfall Release Date Revealed

    Respawn has now announced that Titanfall, the futuristic next gen first person shooter, will be available on the Xbox One, the Xbox 360 and PC on March 11, 2014 in North America, and March 13 in Europe and Australia.

    Respawn have also given details on their super expensive Titanfall collector's edition that includes a bunch of goodies for a grand total of $249.99. The collector's edition comes with a collectible 18 inch hand crafted titan statue and diorama with a battery-powered LED lighting system on the titan, as well as a full size art book with over 190 pages of the game's concept art, as well as a schematic of the Atlas Titan in the form of a poster.

    The collector's edition also includes a copy of the game, however details on whether this will be Xbox One exclusive have not been given yet.

    Titanfall has been hailed by critics as a breath of fresh air in the FPS franchise, by including all new forms of combat, such as a smooth mech combat system and the 3D and almost parkour-like foot soldier jetpack combat.

    Previous reports have suggested that Titanfall will be a timed exclusive, despite reports from Microsoft stating otherwise. Many believe that Titanfall will eventually make it to the PlayStation 4, so although this game looks great, it may be worth waiting instead of splashing out a load of cash on the Xbox One just for the game.

  • Xbox Games with Gold Going to be Permanent

    The fairly recent loyalty program, Xbox Games with Gold, has been confirmed by Microsoft as a permanent feature that will continue on past the Xbox One's launch. Before this confirmation, it was discussed by Microsoft that the promotion would only stay till the end of the year, but it looks as if somebody has managed to convince the big M to keep us a little bit happier with our monthly Xbox Gold subscriptions.

    The Xbox Games with Gold loyalty promotion offers two free games each month to everybody who has an Xbox Live Gold account. It started out with little mention from Microsoft when Fable III mysteriously appeared on the Xbox marketplace for free, but it was later revealed that the game was part of the ongoing Games with Gold loyalty service.

    Since then, Xbox Live Gold members have been treated with a bunch of fairly outdated games over the last few months, including games like Halo 3, Assassins' Creed II, Dead Rising 2, Crackdown and Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes.

    Currently Halo 3 is available till October 31st as a free title, and after this date Microsoft will introduce another game that will be available on the Xbox Games Store for half a month.

    Once a game has been up for half a month it will then be available for purchase again through the Xbox Games Store.

    However, Xbox Live Gold players can "buy" the free title and then play or download it whenever they feel necessary, even after the promotion runs out or their account reverts to a free account.

  • GTA V Now Available Digitally on Xbox LIVE

    After Grand Theft Auto V's amazingly successful launch, Microsoft have finally made a digital version of the game available for download on the Xbox Game's Store.

    Like many of the full games available on the Xbox Games Store, the digital version of Grand Theft Auto V will go for $59.99 in the United States, and possibly around £50 in the UK. You will also need a total of 7.63GB free space to download the game onto your hard drive.

    Whilst Microsoft have only just stepped up and released a digital copy of the game on their console's game marketplace, it has been available on the PlayStation Network since the game's launch.

    Many players have complained that the PlayStation 3 digital version has had problems with textures popping in and out, texture clipping issues, and other strange and unexplainable glitches such as parts of the game spawning late or not spawning at all.

    According to reports from officials, this is due to the hard drive not being able to stream data at the speed the game requires to run smoothly.

    This is the same issue why Rockstar have warned players not to install the "play" disc onto their Xbox 360. Because of the problems that the digital version has had on the PS3, it wouldn't be surprising if similar problems occur on the digital Xbox 360 version as well.

    We'd advise just popping out and buying the physical version to avoid problems and save a few pennies at the same time.

  • Rockstar Working on next 'Version of a Famous IP'

    A bit of information found on a Rockstar New England staff's LinkedIn page has given us a little insight into what another development team belonging to Rockstar could be working on at this very moment in time.

    Found on the LinkedIn page was the information stating that the Rockstar developer is currently working on "the next version of a famous IP," however other than this, no details are shared on the LinkedIn page.

    Luckily though, with a little bit of digging around, we may be able to get more of an idea of what game Rockstar New England could be working on.

    The first thing to take notice of is that the LinkedIn page said "next version of a famous IP" meaning it has to be a follow-up to an already released game or game series, and it has to be a popular one too, but seeing as this is Rockstar we're talking about, it's pretty hard to determine what isn't considered a popular Rockstar IP.

    Rockstar New England has previously worked on a few different games, but they are best known for their work on Bully: Scholarship Edition.

    Members of Rockstar have already mentioned that a sequel to the Bully series would be a good step to take next, so it seems probable that the new game would be a new Bully game.

    It is possible that it could be something completely different though- another Max Payne game, or even a Red Dead sequel.

    Seeing as this is Rockstar New England working on development though, it's unlikely to be anything major unless more development studios are involved.

  • Ryse Son of Rome New Story Trailer Released

    Despite previous gameplay trailers and footage of Ryse: Son of Rome focusing on the brutal combat found within the game, there is a story within the world of Ryse, and a newly released gameplay trailer gives an insight into the storyline of Ryse: Son of Rome.

    Although Crytek, the development team behind Ryse: Son of Rome, are best known for their beautiful video games graphics, Ryse manages to capture our imagination through both great visuals and good gameplay, and hopefully a good story too.

    Rome: Son of Ryse's story mode would be better described as a cinematic action title- it has cut scenes relating to the story within the game, a fairly easy control system that is easy to get to grips with, and if one wants it, a very minimal user interface on top of it all.

    The story focuses around the Roman solider, Marius Titus. After a return back home, he finds his family has been brutally murdered, and then sets off to find the most loyal soldiers to fight with him along his raging path of revenge.

    It doesn't sound exactly original, but I have hope that Crytek can do a good enough job with the Ryse: Son of Rome's story mode by using decent voice acting and its beautiful graphics to immerse players into the game.

    Ryse: Son of Rome will be an Xbox One launch title game, and it is looking to be among the very best of the current offering available at launch.

  • Battlefield 4 will have "Deepest Online Career Ever"

    All of the hype that has gone towards Battlefield 4 has gone straight towards the online multiplayer portion of the game, and whilst there will be a story driven campaign as always, all eyes are on online.

    DICE seem to understand that because they have put a lot of effort into making sure the Battlefield online multiplayer experience is better than any other previous game in the series. In fact, DICE are calling the online multiplayer on Battlefield their "deepest online career ever."

    So, what gives DICE such a strong pride towards their online multiplayer on Battlefield 4? Apart from the all new customizable weapons system, weapon and vehicle camo's, and the brand new progression system, there is actually quite a lot to be proud of.

     "While sharing similar basics with Battlefield 3, we are now offering a cleaner upgrade path, clearer Ribbon and Medal progression, and an increased focus on richly rewarding great team play."

    On top of the ranking system which starts at 0 and ends at 100, there will also be new redesigned ribbon awards, making all of your actions in Battlefield 4 that much more worth it.

    "We know our fans can spend literally hundreds of hours on the Battlefield. With Battlefield 4, we want to make sure players have goals to aspire to at the end game, while at the same time rewarding players at earlier ranks as well. Ribbons are the quick fixes, whether you're a veteran or a newcomer to the series."

    "You typically can get one or more of these in a single round if you perform well. They can be awarded for anything from repairing vehicles, capturing flags, or reviving team mates. There are 45 unique Ribbons in the game, and you can earn each of them an infinite number of times."

    The ribbon system was a good addition to the Battlefield online system because it added more goals to achieve within a game, and this is especially important for making those long game modes more enjoyable and more engaging.

  • Ubisoft: Watch Dogs will be Delayed Till Spring 2014

    The next gen line up so far has looked absolutely amazing, and many games have sparked interest towards both the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4.

    It seems that the golden launch was a little too good to be true though, as Drive Club, and now Watch Dogs have been set back to ensure the games are truly 100% complete.

    Whilst this is a bit of a shame because we won't be able to play these games on launch day, it is good that developers are taking extra time to make sure their games are the best that they can be.

    I'm hoping that's the case with Watch Dogs, as Ubisoft have confirmed that the game will be delayed till spring 2014.

    Ubisoft made an official statement on the delay, with CEO Alain Martinez giving his humblest apologies and reasoning's behind the delay,

    "Our ambition from the start with Watch Dogs has been to deliver something that embodies what we wanted to see in the next-generation of gaming, it is with this in mind that we've made the tough decision to delay the release until Spring 2014."

    "We know a lot of you are probably wondering 'why now?' We struggled with whether we would delay the game. But from the beginning, we have adopted the attitude that we will not compromise on quality.

    "As we got closer to release, as all the pieces of the puzzle were falling into place in our last push before completion, it became clear to us that we needed to take the extra time to polish and fine tune every detail so we can deliver a truly memorable and exceptional experience."

    Despite Alain not believing the delay will hurt sales, Ubisoft's share value has plummeted since the announcement of the delay.

    It is unfortunate that Ubisoft have had to push back Watch Dogs, but it's important to remember that Ubisoft are focusing on releasing the best game experience possible with Watch Dogs, and I'm impatiently waiting to get my hands on it.

  • GTA Online 1.04 patch released, Rockstar planning to compensate for problems

    Since the shaky launch of Grand Theft Auto Online, Rockstar have been working hard almost 24/7 to fix all of the server issues, bugs and glitches resulting in loss of player  progress, money, cars, and the gain of a generally unhappy player base.

    Luckily though, Rockstar have done quite a good job to iron things out, and the newest patch fixes some of the last major current problems players are dealing with. Official patch notes have been listed below:

    • +Fixes numerous issues that were causing vehicle loss and/or loss of vehicle mods
    • +Fixes an issue where the incorrect car is replaced when choosing to replace a car in a full garage
    • +Fixes an exploit allowing players to sell the same vehicle multiple times
    • +Fixes an issue that caused personal vehicles to be duplicated
    • +Fixes an issue where some players were unable to pay utility bills on an owned apartment or house
    • +Fixes an issue where players were not getting Crew invites in-game
    • +Fixes an issue where the starting point for the tutorial race was not appearing
    • +Fixes issues with joining Jobs from within a player-owned garage
    • +Fixes issues with players getting stuck while using playlists
    • +Fixes additional issues causing black screens, long load times, and players getting stuck in the sky cam
    • +Adds details in the UI to clarify that characters created while Rockstar cloud is unavailable are temporary (non-saved)
    • +Adds changes to the character creator to make better-looking default characters with the "random" option
    • +Players now only lose a maximum of 500 GTA$ upon death in Freemode

    To make up for all of the problems, Rockstar have also offered to give all players that play the game this month a total of $500,000 in-game cash as a two-part compensation package. The package will come in two $250k installments to try and not hurt the economy too much, but over the coming weeks, every player should have an extra $500k in their banks through various patches and updates.

    The 1.04 patch will not be adding the first $250k installment, however many believe it to patch in the ability for Rockstar to remotely add cash to player's accounts.

  • Sony's Drive Club has Been Delayed

    Despite previously being confirmed for a late 2013 release date, Evolution Studio's PlayStation 4 exclusive Drive Club has had its release delayed for 'early 2014.'

    The game was scheduled to be available as both a free access game for PS Plus subscribers and a full version retail game, but both versions have been pulled back. Drive Club was planned to be one of fifteen games to be released upon launch, but since then both Watch Dogs and Drive Club have unfortunately been delayed, meaning we'll be missing out on two of the most promising titles at launch, and will have only 13 titles to play.

    To set things in stone, Sony Worldwide Studios CEO Shuhei Yoshida made a statement on the official PlayStation blog regarding the Drive Club delay. In his post, he said that Drive Club "will be a truly innovative, socially connected racing game, but the team requires more time in order to deliver on their vision - and I'm fully confident the game will surpass your expectations."

    He also mentioned that although the Drive Club PS Plus version will still be available upon the game's launch in early 2014, Sony have found another game to take Drive Club's place as the first free PS Plus subscriber free title.

    Yoshida also mentioned this in his blog post. The free game will be a platformer by the name of Contrast. "If you're not aware of Contrast, it will whisk you away to a surreal vaudevillian, film-noir inspired reality full of performance, intrigue, shadow-play and drama."
