  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Two New AAA Games Coming from Deep Silver This E3

    deep silver aaa gamesOver the last few years, Deep Silver have been kept busy. A lot of developers have gone to them for help with publishing, and they are now the publisher for many different development studios, including 4A Games, the development team behind Metro Last Light.

    This year, Deep Silver have plans to announced two brand new triple A titles, and details of these will be shared at E3. According to Forbes writer Jason Evangelho, Deep Silver will reveal "two unannounced AAA games," which has certainly got us at Evil Controllers curious.

    So far, we have no idea what the two new games from Deep Silver could be, and whether these new titles will be sequels to already existing franchises, or whether they will be completely new IP is currently unknown.

    Seeing as we haven't heard much about IP filings and the such, it's more likely that the new AAA games will be parts of existing franchises. This means we could expect to see a brand new Dead Island title, or perhaps a new Metro game.

    More interestingly, Volition Games now have the rights to make a new Saints Row title, which means we could even expect to see a brand new SR game under a fresh new face. At this point in time, it's all just speculation, but with E3 just around the corner, we really don't have that much waiting to do before we can get our hands on juicy new information from Deep Silver.

  • Six EA Games Under Development Will Be Shown at E3

    EA E3 Game Reveal

    EA has confirmed in their latest earnings report that, apart from bringing in a net revenue of $4,012 million, there are six new games planned for announced at this year's E3 event. All six games are currently under development, and no details have been given on what exactly these six games are.

    We can of course expect to hear more about FIFA World Cup 14 this year, as well as a variety of other sports games, including FIFA 15, MADDEN NFL 15, NBA 15 and NHL 15. EA may also finally give more information on the Sims 4, which has previously been announced by the video game publisher.

    EA Sports UFC has been planned for Q1 2015, so we may hear a little more about that, and EA still have plans to release a new golf title at some point in 2015. All of these titles are expected, and apart from Sims there isn't too much in this list that really gets me interested.

    However, there are a couple of other games that may make an appearance at this year's E3. The first one is Dragon Age: Inquisition - this is a title that we've seen a lot of concept art of recently, but we still haven't seen a solid vision of the game.

    The second title is of course Star Wars Battlefront. DICE already seem pretty keen to show off what they have prepared for the new Battlefront game, and I'm sure a lot of gamers around the globe can't wait to see what the Battlefield developer has done with the title.

    There's no confirmation on what six games will be shown at E3 this year, but out of these games, both Battlefront and Dragon Age: Inquisition look like safe bets.

  • Screenshots for Batman: Arkham Knight Appear

    batman arkham knight batmobile

    The last Batman game let the rest of the series down a little, but it looks like Rocksteady Studios aren't looking to slow down production any time soon. New images have been shown off for the new and upcoming Batman: Arkham Knight game, and they pretty much capture everything we've already come to know and love in the dark Batman Arkham universe.

    The screenshots show a few different characters and gameplay mechanics in action. The most interesting is the new batmobile game mechanic. As players are traveling through the city in Batman: Arkham Knight, players will be able to call in the batmobile whilst gliding to a landing spot.

    The batmobile will smash through anything in it's way to give Batman a safe place to land. From here, players will be able to travel around the city streets with the vehicle, instead of just on foot or in the air.

    If you were let down by Arkham Origins, it's important to note that Origins was developed by Warner Bros. The upcoming Arkham Knight game will be made by Rocksteady Studios once again, so we can expect that the title will have the same gameplay quality as the first titles under RockSteady's name.

    Batman Arkham Knight has been speculated to release this October for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. We'll probably see some gameplay leading up to that, and perhaps a full gameplay teaser at E3 this year.

  • Lords of the Fallen PAX Trailer Makes the Game Look Amazing

    Lords of the Fallen is an RPG that first made it's voice heard at E3. There wasn't really much to look at apart from a teaser trailer, but that then followed with another trailer at Gamescom and it started to look very impressive.

    Once again, Lords of the Fallen has managed to impress visitors of PAX with gameplay demos, and I must admit I am definitely looking forward to this game.

    The cinematic trailer we've seen shows a character wearing heavy armor as he fights his way to what looks like a very powerful hammer. Later on in the trailer we find out that this very powerful hammer is indeed a very, very powerful hammer. What follows is a very intense battle against what looks like some kind of oversized balrog in a snowy arctic desert.

    The game looks to be a very promising RPG title that most likely will take inspiration from games such as the Darksiders series.

    The developers have said that they want each fight to feel like a Tekken or Street Fighter battle so it seems Lords of the Fallen will focus strongly on the combat system and will be enjoyable for people who prefer action RPGs over story-based RPGs.

    It doesn't look as if the game will be out for a while yet though, although if we're lucky we may get a release late 2014 as this was the date recently announced.

    Lords of the Fallen will be available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.

  • Lords of the Fallen Action RPG Revealed for PlayStation 4

    Any news of new IP these days in the gaming industry is always good news, and when it sounds like a good IP, it's even better. Lord of the Fallen, a new Action RPG currently being developed by CI games certainly sounds like something news worthy, and it is scheduled to hit the PlayStation 4.

    The game has been stated as being a hardcore action RPG with advanced combat systems and robust skill trees.

    The game will take place in a fantasy world in a time where the Gods have failed mankind. Players will control a human named Harkyn as he sets out on a quest to stop the Gods from destroying mankind. The game is being designed to make sure that players find it meaningful to travel across the whole world, and as they do, they will be greeted with many different challenges.

    "Our team is building Lords of the Fallen specifically for players who enjoy taking on huge challenges, where the odds are stacked against them," said Tomasz Gop, executive producer, CI Games. From the very beginning, Lords of the Fallen will intrigue and satisfy players' hunger to explore each corner of a brand new world, freely customize and build their own character and take down some of the most epic enemies ever seen."

    More will be shown about Lords of the Fallen at this year's E3, where gamers will get the chance to play playable demos of the game.
