  • New Payday 2 DLC Pokes Fun at Battlefield

    payday 2 dlcPayday 2 developers StarBreeze have just released a new DLC pack that is currently only available on the Steam PC store. The new DLC pack includes new guns, melee weapons masks and gun mods for just $4.99.

    The new Payday 2 DLC has been dubbed the Gage Assault Pack, and it's promotional art, as you can see above, uncoincidentally resembles the splash art from Battlefield 4. It's clear that Payday 2 has been designed to be a lighthearted game with a humorous approach to gameplay, so this fun-poking at Battlefield from StarBreeze is pretty funny.

    Whilst the $4.99 Gaga Assault Pack is currently only available for PC via Steam, it's expected that the DLC pack will eventually be released for other platforms as well, including the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360.

    A more-in depth look at the Gage Assault Pack reveals that there will be a total of four new guns, four melee weapons, four masks, 28 gun mods, new mask materials and patterns, and a total of 10 new achievements. Unfortunately the new pack does not add any additional heists or extra gameplay content.

    Like previous Payday 2 DLC, players can still join up with one another regardless of what DLC each player has. In fact, the original Gage Weapon Pack for Payday 2 added grenade boxes to the game, and players without the DLC could use grenades when partnered up with a player who owns the DLC.

    We'll let you know if we hear anything about a PS3 or Xbox 360 release for the Gage Assault Pack.

  • Minecraft for PS4 Has Gone Live

    minecraft ps4 - CopyAt long last, the PlayStation 4 port for Minecraft has finally been put up for sale after months of development, planning and delayed releases. 4JStudios, the development team responsible for the port, have been working on the PS4 and Xbox One ports before the consoles were even available to the public. However, Minecraft can now be picked up from the PSN store for $19.99.

    If PS3 owners already have a copy of Minecraft on their PlayStation 3, they can 'upgrade' to the new PS4 version of Minecraft for just $4.99. Unfortunately, the promotion is not available for those that have purchased the physical copy of Minecraft for the PlayStation 3 in the past, however going forward all PS3 physical copies of Minecraft will now have pre-packaged codes that will players a $14.99 discount on the PS4 version of the game.

    Minecraft has been planned for the Xbox One as well, however due to a few issues the release has been slightly delayed. The Xbox One version of Minecraft will be released this Friday, and the same $19.99 full price and $4.99 upgrade price will be available on the Xbox One too.

    For those unaware, the new generation ports for Minecraft have a bunch of new features not supported in either the PS3 or Xbox 360 version, including worlds that are 36 times larger than the last-gen versions, better render distance and improved graphics.

    If you're an avid Minecraft fan and enjoy playing the game on your console, the $4.99 upgrade price should be something you may want to consider, as the extra world space will definitely come in handy.

  • Destiny for the Xbox One Needs 40GB Install Space

    destiny xbox one - CopyIt has been revealed that Bungie's brand new open world loot n' shooter game, Destiny, will require a massive 40GB internal memory free on the Xbox One for it to be able to install.

    This news comes from a range of leaks showing off the game case for Destiny and the details on the back of the case. In the small print underneath the promotional images, it clearly states that 40GB hard drive space will be required for players to install the game.

    Whilst these leaks are only directly related to the Xbox One version of Destiny, it's very likely that the PlayStation 4 will receive similar treatment, and 40GB or around that size will most likely be needed on the PS4 too.

    Whilst both the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One come with 500GB hard drives as standard, this space will quickly be used up if games like Destiny are put on the market. Destiny is bound to receive many patches and content packs in the future that will only make the file size even larger too.

    In fact, the day one patch for Destiny has been confirmed to be 300MB in size, making the total file size of Destiny on day one 40.3GB for the Xbox One version of the game.

    Luckily, Microsoft has added external hard drive support for the Xbox One recently, but it's still a shame that the internal memory available is quite limited.

  • Release Date for Bloodborne Confirmed

    bloodborne release dateThe next title within the series of great games released by From Software has now received a confirmed release date, and a lot of fans are getting quite excited.

    In a PlayStation TGS press conference, From Software revealed that the successor to Demon's Souls will be released on February 5, 2015 in Japan. Along with a physical copy of the game, the first initial production will include an art book and soundtrack CD for each unit.

    Whilst Bloodborne isn't a sequel to either Dark Souls or Demon Souls, the gameplay feels similar to the aforementioned titles, and could easily be within the same universe From Software have developed with both Demon Souls and Dark Souls.

    Despite sounding just as cruel as both other games, Bloodborne won't be nearly as punishing, and dying will be as much of a worry as it has been in Dark Souls 2. There will certainly be areas players will find challenging, but the amount of perseverance needed to complete Bloodborne will be a lot less than either of From Software's previous titles.

    "You died a lot in the previous games, and you have to persevere," Bloodborne director, Hidetaka Miyazaki said. "One of our main goals with this game is that sense of punishment - we don't really want to focus on punishing the player.

    "We want to deliver a game that gamers love, so if the gamer likes the game they will definitely like it enough to have that bit of perseverance. But in the way which we're making the game the sense of punishment is much less."

  • Bungie Talks About Plans for Destiny Future Updates

    destiny day one updateIn a new interview, Destiny's director of production, Jonty Barnes, discussed his plans for the near future of Destiny, and Bungie's vision for new content and updates as players start to experience the game once it has been released.

    The release of Destiny is now less than two weeks away, but once the game has been released, Bungie aren't going to be slowing down with development. In fact, they have plans to keep the game updated often.

    On day one, an update for the game has already been planned - this update will include a range of changes that Bungie couldn't quite get into the product before the game went gold. This will include changes to the UI and how easy it is for players to read it and navigate it, and other small tweaks to the overall experience.

    Jonty went onto discussing about improving the game over time to keep players happy with Destiny as a whole, suggesting that Bungie want to keep their players content with the stuff available in-game. "We do have things we're going to change over time that will make those experiences better. You'll see stuff and you'll go, hey, have you seen what they've done to the explore mode recently? Maybe we should do some of that - it seems a lot better."

    "We're going to try to do that for all of the game and build on the world. Having gamers participate in the dialogue about what they would like to see, not just our own team and user research group of gamers coming in and out, it certainly makes - it has done historically for Bungie - our games better," Barnes said.

    It sounds like Bungie are going the right way about making an online game that the players can truly have a say in, and I can't wait to get my hands on the game later this month.

  • GTA V PS4 Port May Have Reworked Radio Station

    gta v ps4 radio stationsAccording to new rumors, the upcoming Grand Theft Auto V rework will come packed with a set of new in-game music tracks for the various radio stations available via radio from a car or a player's home.

    One of the radio stations in Grand Theft Auto V is called Non Stop Pop FM, and according to Cara Delevingne, a model who has been the host of the in-game radio station, players will be able to experience a set of new tracks when the rework is released, along with new content in between songs.

    This update isn't exactly massive, but it's one of the added details that will make the new Grand Theft Auto rework for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and the PC worth buying. Even if you already own GTA V on a previous gen console, the range of new changes to the game should even make purchasing GTA for your new console quite tempting.

    Rockstar could have easily just put the same game onto new consoles with a slightly better resolution and frame rate, but instead they are really embracing the new hardware changes of both the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One to make GTA V the game it could never have been on either the PS3 or the Xbox 360.

    The newly reworked Grand Theft Auto for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One has been anticipated to release this Fall, however the final date has not yet been set in stone. On top of this, details for the PC release are still undecided.

  • New MCC Halo 3 Gameplay Shows off Graphical Changes

    master chief collection halo 3 gameplayWhilst Halo 2 will be getting the largest overhaul in the Master Chief Collection, it's not the only game that's going to be getting a graphical update. In fact, on top of the game supporting 1080P resolution at 60fps across the board for all singleplayer campaigns, Halo 3 has now been confirmed to have a set of new lighting effects and graphical changes that add a bit more detail to the game.

    Whilst the changes aren't as significant as the changes seen in Halo 2, the game certainly looks a lot crisper, and on top of this it plays flawlessly at 60 frames per second, something that the developers have mentioned players will really be able to feel.

    Along with the confirmation, 343 Industries and Microsoft hosted a new gameplay event to showcase the changes made in Halo 3.

    It's really quite exciting to see the game being capable of running at such a high frame rate without any problems, and it's almost a shame it won't end up looking quite as good as Halo 2 will. Despite this, both games should run fairly smoothly on the Xbox One without any issues.

    As expected, Combat Evolved will be getting the same anniversary treatment as the standalone game did, so we don't expect to see any changes there.

    Halo: The Master Chief Collection will release on 11th of November for the Xbox One, and will cost $59.99, despite containing four whole Halo games and hours of great content.

  • Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain Map Shown to be Huge

    metal gear solid v map sizeLast month, Hideo Kojima posted up a range of different screenshots portraying one of the maps planned to be in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, and weeks later, we've been able to work out just how large the world will be, thanks to some analysis carried about by a Reddit user.

    The original map was darkened, but with a few tweaks to the white balance, the map could then be revealed more clearly. On the edited map, roads can be seen connecting the entire world together. Whilst the map does show the scale of the world, it doesn't explain how large it will really feel to the player, but to put it into perspective, Reddit users have taken areas from gameplay trailers and events and correlated them with places on the map to piece together the size of the world.

    If the image, which can be seen above is proven to be correct, then there's no guessing just how huge The Phantom Pain will feel. One thing's for sure and that's the world in Metal Gear Solid will be absolutely huge, and it will certainly rival many other large open worlds created for other games like Grand Theft Auto V or Just Cause 2.

    To make things even more exciting, Kojima has mentioned in the past that there would be multiple maps in Metal Gear Solid V, and the one being shown today is just one of them.

  • PlayStation Plus September Games Announced

    ps plus september gamesThe new game lineup for the PS Plus games on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PS Vita have now been announced, and whilst it's lineup may perhaps be the weakest it's been for a few months, there's still a decent amount of free games to delve into. As usual, the lineup spans six games across all three current PlayStation consoles.

    For the PlayStation 4, PS Plus subscribers will be able to get their hands on Velocity 2X, a fast paced side scrolling platformer that has a wide range of cool shooting, teleporting and other great sci-fi mechanics. The second PS4 title is Sportsfriends, which is a great party game filled with all sorts of quick arcade and puzzle games that people can play together on the same console.

    On the PlayStation 3, All Stars Battle Royale has been put up for free - this is a great game that pits together all of PlayStation's best known video game characters and sticks them in the same arena for a Super Smash Bros' style fighting experience.

    Hoard, which is the merge of both a real time strategy game and a dual stick shooter, is the second PS3 game available this month.

    As for the PS Vita, Joe Danger, an action packed racer/platformer has been put up for free, along with TxK, a really colorful arcade shooter. All of the new PlayStation Plus subscriber games were put up for free on September 2nd, and will remain there till the start of next month.

  • Beyond Two Souls Might Be Coming to the PS4

    beyond two souls ps4According to new rumors, Beyond Two Souls may be coming to the PlayStation 4 some time in the near future. Packaged as a 'director's cut,' the new alleged PlayStation 4 compatible Beyond Two Souls will come with a range of previously removed scenes, and an overhaul on some scenes already within the game.

    This isn't the first time we've heard rumors circulate about a PlayStation 4 Beyond Two Souls port, and it's certainly not going to be the last, but until we hear something substantial from an official source there's no way of knowing how likely it is that Beyond Two Souls will actually make it to the PS4.

    The source for the new rumors leads to two German retail websites, both of which have listed up the 'Beyond Two Souls director's cut' for release on the PlayStation 4. Earlier in the year, a programmer working on the game listed a PlayStation 4 remake within his portfolio, so there is definitely something related to a new Beyond Two Souls release happening in the background.

    Considering that Beyond Two Souls sold over 1 million copies as an exclusive, and was released around the same time the PlayStation 4 was announced, it is completely likely that a new director's cut version for the PS4 is being worked on, but don't hold your breath just yet.

    Hopefully we will hear an official statement from Quantic Dream at some point in the near future - until then, we'll have to take these rumors with a grain of salt.
