  • What is the Future of Call of Duty?

    Call of Duty: Black OpsThe next game in the Call of Duty franchise is Advanced Warfare, a futuristic shooter in the hands of Sledgehammer games, a developer who, whilst not unfamiliar with the series, is certainly having their first shot at creating a solo Call of Duty experience.

    Advanced Warfare seems to offer a decent amount of content to make it feel fresh to COD players, but it's still going to feel like Call of Duty, which I think is what makes the franchise so popular in the first place.

    However, Advanced Warfare is only the beginning; EA still plan to churn out a new Call of Duty game every year for the foreseeable future, so what do the other Call of Duty developers have planned?

    Earlier this week, we mentioned a rumor suggesting World at War 2 may be the Call of Duty title for 2015, and that got me thinking.

    If Sledgehammer are in charge of Advanced Warfare, and Treyarch are reportedly working on a new world war two game, it would make sense that Infinity Ward are straight in the middle, working on their Modern Warfare series.

    If this is the case, then we'll have three completely separate Call of Duty experiences that could be very different from one another. Technically, we could have three separate COD franchises from the three developers, and if this is the case, I think this across-the-board approach to different settings and environments should keep all FPS players happy.

    For now though, this is just speculation. Whilst Advanced Warfare is well under development, there is no solid evidence for World at War 2, and absolutely no details have been given on Infinity Ward's next title.

    Where ever the Call of Duty franchise decides to go Evil Controllers will be here to create the best modded controllers possible. We will keep our controller software up-to-date with all the new technology and continue bringing the Master Mod. Check us out at: www.EvilControllers.com

  • Mortal Kombat X Revealed

    Mortal Kombat XThe last couple of days have been filled with strange postings and hints towards the next Mortal Kombat title, and today it has finally been announced. Mortal Kombat 10, or what the developers are calling Mortal Kombat X, has now had an official trailer released for it, and things are looking pretty interesting.

    The trailer for Mortal Kombat X starts with what looks like cinematic footage, but it neatly transitions into real gameplay, at which point you start to realize just how good looking the new Mortal Kombat game is going to be.

    The first hint towards the Mortal Kombat X reveal trailer came in the form of a Tweet from Wiz Khalifa, which was certainly quite odd. Wiz Khalifa posted an image that read 'Who's Next?' As well as a date in Roman numerals. The date read "VI.II.MMXIV" which translates to 2nd June 2014, which is the day Mortal Kombat received a big reveal.

    Ed Boon followed up with Tweet by writing "Yes you are Next @wizkhalifa !! On June 2nd Kombat Kontinues... #WHOSNEXT" Ed Boon has been tweeting about some strange announcement for weeks now, and it's finally been revealed.

    Personally, I'm very interested in a new Mortal Kombat game, but let's hope Wiz Khalifa doesn't make a guest appearance, I think that would be a little odd. But who knows, it could happen.. However, it seems more likely that Wiz Khalifa is being used as a marketing strategy, similarly to the way Eminem partnered with Activision to create a Call of Duty specific song called Survival.

  • Call of Duty Advanced Warfare Announced

    COD Advanced WarfareThe next Call of Duty game that is planned for release this year has just been revealed, and so far it's looking pretty interesting. As we know at this point, the Call of Duty title for 2014 has been developed by a new developer, Sledgehammer Games, and they have been working on it for around 3 years now.

    The new Call of Duty title will focus on advanced future combat, and has been titled Advanced Warfare. In Advanced Warfare we can expect to see advanced weaponry, aircraft and drones, as well as a wide variety of other technical gear, including wearable exoskeletons that makes Call of Duty comparable with something out of Halo or Dead Space.

    Personally, I think this is a pretty interesting direction for Sledgehammer to take, but seeing as Black Ops has been touching on 'future combat' a little bit already, it isn't entirely surprising. Hopefully there will be enough new content to refresh the series a little.

    Another interesting thing about Advanced Warfare is that Kevin Spacey has been chosen to voice the bad guy, who can be heard in the Advanced Warfare reveal trailer. Whilst a lot of Call of Duty's popularity has branched off from the multiplayer experience, Sledgehammer Games seem pretty enthusiastic to offer a great singleplayer experience this time round.

    Sledgehammer will be focusing on just the PC, PS4 and Xbox One versions of the title, however another development studio will be working on a last gen version for the PS3 and Xbox 360.

  • Screenshot Shown of Next Call of Duty Game

    Call of Duty 2014 ScreenshotBesides the diehard fans, there aren't that many of us out there that can still get excited at the announcement of a new Call of Duty game, however the next COD title planned for release this year may actually be worth checking out.

    The next COD title, or Call of Duty 2014 as it has been informally called, has been planned for release this Fall, however, despite only being a year after the release of Call of Duty Ghosts, the development team behind it have been quietly working on it for around 3 years now.

    Typically, the Call of Duty titles have been created by two different development studios; Infinity Ward and Treyarch Games. This gives each development studio two years to work on a title, and a Call of Duty game can still be released each year.

    This year round, Sledgehammer Games have gotten involved, and that means the COD franchise will be entering a three year development cycle for the first time.

    A new development team working on a COD title, along with an extra year's worth of development could just be enough to breathe new life into the franchise, and if it doesn't, then at least the game will look nice.

    The screenshot shown above was revealed late last week by Sledgehammer games to show off the graphical potential of Call of Duty 2014, which will primarily be targeted towards the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, giving Sledgehammer more space for improvement.

  • Four New COD Ghosts DLC Packs Released

    new COD ghosts dlc][new COD ghosts dlc

    Activision has just released four new DLC content packs for Call of Duty Ghosts that will be separate from the season pass. All four packs are small additions to the game that only change cosmetics, and they have all been released and been made available for purchase since the start of this week.

    The four packs have been named 'personalization packs' and they include a few new items to change the appearance of your squad members in-game.

    The first pack is the Makarov Legend Pack. This pack allows players to don the appearance of Vladimir Makarov, one of the most well known villains in the whole of Call of Duty. On top of the multiplayer Makarov skin, the Makarov Legend Pack comes with a themed weapon camo, a new reticle, a player patch, playercard and background. This pack can be picked up for $3.99

    The second pack is the Zakhaev Special Character pack. This pack also includes another Call of Duty villains. This pack only includes a skin, and can be picked up for $1.99.

    The last two packs are also two skin packs; the Hazmat Special Character for $1.99, and the Rorke Special Character for $1.99.

    If you haven't been that interested in COD Ghosts, rumors suggest that there will be a demo made available this month for players to give the game a go before buying. No details yet on when the demo will be made available, but it's likely to be running over a weekend, and will end on the following Monday.

  • Titanfall Leaks Reveal Generations Mode

    Titanfall Prestige Mode

    Somehow, it looks as if pretty much all information about Titanfall has been let out into the wild, and through all of these leaks, we can learn a bunch of new information about the upcoming Microsoft exclusive first person shooter.

    The most interesting leak that's been picked up after the maps leak is something that pertains to the information of a prestige system similar to the ones found in Call of Duty games.

    According to the leaker, the prestige system in Titanfall will be called Generations, and when a player decides to reset their rank to Generation 2, they'll lose all of their unlocked perks, and they will start back at level 1.

    The bonuses of Generation 2 is that players will receive 110% XP at all times, and a unique badge to show off in-game. All burn card earnt in Generation 1 will be kept, and no details have been given on whether there will be any more Generations, and what bonuses players may receive for prestiging more than once.

    It has also been revealed by the same leaker that there will be a new game mode called Pilot Hunter. In this game mode, players will only be awarded points for killing enemy pilots; the real players in the game. This will mean killing titans and AI will not award players points, focusing the game on traditional FPS player combat.

    Finally, the leaker suggest that there will be 9 campaign levels that players will be able to play online. These 9 levels will be played out as Attrition and Hardpoint modes, and players will be able to decide whether they want to play as the IMC or the Militia before playing.

  • Watch Dogs Delay Stopped Disaster According to Pachter

    Watch Dogs Delay

    There was a certain trend for many top publishers last year - the likes of Activision and EA seem to be pushing their developers to the limits by trying to release games as quickly as possible to reduce any possible competition in the market and ensure that games like Call of Duty or Battlefield are bringing in nice, fluid streams of revenue.

    The problem with this is that on our end of the stick, we're often handed a mangled, chewed up representation of what the developers originally had envisioned. Both Battlefield 4 and Call of Duty Ghosts had their issues at launch, and DICE and EA are still going through the problems with Battlefield 4 today.

    This makes the average gamer feel a little cheated on, really, and at least for me personally, I hope that this kind of tactic changes.

    One game that I'd happily wait for is Watch Dogs, and despite it's delay, I'm still excited as ever for the release of the game.

    According to Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter, the delay of Watch Dogs could have potentially stopped the game turning into a complete disaster, just like Battlefield 4 has. When asked about the Ubisoft development team behind Watch Dogs, Pachter said, "I admire them. Their stock got hammered. The management got criticized. And that franchise matters; it sounds really good. And if it doesn't work, it's a big waste of time and waste of money. So I'm hopeful that that six month delay makes that game great. But I think that was headed for disaster."

    As you can see, sometimes it's best just to be a little patient, especially in the games industry.

  • Titanfall Player Count Only 6v6

    Titanfall 12 Players

    Titanfall has so far been predicted to be the game that will slay the FPS giants, and has shown a lot of very interesting gameplay elements that really could make it a unique first person shooter experience.

    Unfortunately, it may not be the game for everyone. Some news has recently come in about the multiplayer details on Titanfall, and one bit of information in particular has caused a bit of distress for the average Battlefield or Call of Duty fan.

    Respawn Entertainment's guy in charge, Vince Zampella has taken to twitter to announced that Titanfall will only be a 12 person game. Vince stated "6v6 is max player count. Turned out to be the best balance with AI for us."

    Being a huge fan of the small team combat in most Halo game modes, this really didn't bother me much, but I can understand why a player who enjoys intense 32 to 64 player combat may be a little upset about this new discovery.

    The only thing I can say to these people is that Titanfall is meant to be a game changer - it's going to have certain rules and mechanics that you may be scared to try first, but if Respawn didn't take the initiative to change these things, then it would just end up like another Call of Duty.

    Before we all frown at the idea of 6-aside multiplayer, let's give it a rest and give ourselves an actual verdict on Respawn's decision when the game is actually out.

  • Quick Scoping will be Useless in Titanfall

    Call of Duty has brought the world a type of gamer that likes to impress, and whether you're the guy with 1337 360 NoScope skills, or the person getting frustrated on the other end of the barrel, by the time Titanfall is on your console, it's going to be a different story.

    no quick scoping titanfall

    A developer at Respawn Entertainment has spoke to the community about snipers, he started by stating that snipers will be an important part of Titanfall, but the nature of snipers in Titanfall is different to how they work in most modern military shooters, and the mechanics in Titanfall will make your COD snipers skills ineffective.

    "Sniping is in the game, but due to how the game plays it's a pretty different animal than you'll find in your run of the mill modern military shooter. Quick scoping and no scoping are ineffective."

    So far, no more details have been given on how snipers will work in Titanfall, but I can imagine that sniping will be rendered useless unless scoped in and remaining still, making snipers vulnerable targets whilst aiming for shots with their powerful weapons.

    I'm sure players will find a way to try and "cheat" the snipers in Titanfall, but no matter how you try to use your sniper in Titanfall, no scoping and quick scoping certainly won't be an overpowered tactic like it is in Call of Duty.

    Titanfall will be released exclusively to Xbox One and PC, and will be released on the 13th of March.

  • New Day One Patch Makes Call of Duty Ghosts 1080P on PlayStation 4

    After all of the talk and arguing about whether the two next gen consoles, the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4, will have 1080P support for next gen titles, it's personally left me a bit frustrated with the way 'fanboys' seem to enjoy trash talking their fellow gamers.

    This probably leaves Microsoft, Sony and any game developers working on next gen titles wondering what they can do to please the angry crowd of gamers that are slowly piling up outside their front door, and in Infinity Ward's case, it looks like a 1080P compatibility patch for Call of Duty Ghosts on the PlayStation 4.

    Straight out of the box, Call of Duty Ghosts will play at 1080P natively in multiplayer mode, but the single player is stuck at 720P. The new patch that's been available for download since day one fixes this and allows players to play single player in 1080P resolution.

    After hearing about this, this has left a few gamers upset, most likely because it has given PS4 fan boys a little less to boast about to their Xbox One buddies, but the new update should fix any concerns and allow PS4 gamers to continue shouting abuse at Xbox One gamers over the internet who will unfortunately be stuck with 720P on Call of Duty Ghosts.

    If you're not into any of that, alternatively you could now go and enjoy the COD Ghosts singleplayer in full 1080P HD resolution and make use of the free HDMI cable they’ve sent out with every PS4.
