  • DICE Putting Heist Mode in Next Hardline Beta

    heist mode hardline betaDICE has announced that they will be releasing the Heist mode into the upcoming Battlefield Hardline beta, but there is a catch. Players will need to work together as a community to unlock the Heist mode.

    A new 'community mission' has been announced for Battlefield 4 players, and it asks players to accumulate a global total of 2 billion points in Battlefield 4's Rush mode. If players manage to reach this goal before the end of the month, then players will be rewarded with the Heist mode for Battlefield Hardline.

    Whilst this seems like an odd move to get more people playing Battlefield 4 in anticipation for Hardline, I have a feeling that the 2 billion Rush points should easily be reached. In fact, I expect that the average amount of weekly Rush points is close enough to two billion anyway so players should not have to worry about getting the Heist mode unlocked for the Hardline beta.

    If you do want to do your part, you can head into Battlefield 4 and play through any Rush mode to accumulate points for the challenge.

    So far, two other game modes have been announced for Hardline beta, and Heist would be the third. The first game mode is Conquest, a 64 players slaughter fest, and Hotwire, a vehicle based Cops and Criminals style game mode. It seems like most items and gadgets will be available in the Hardline beta - Visceral Games are using this as their last chance to test everything to make sure it all works.

    "The beta is your shot to test the different classes, toy with different gadgets, and find your crew to take down your foes. To be frank, we want you to play this beta to death. We need you to. This test is only going to make the game stronger, and help us take a look at ways we can ensure we deliver the most stable launch you deserve."

  • Call of Duty World at War 2 Rumored

    world at war 2It's always best to be a little skeptical at this time of the year. Around this time, we usually start to hear a thing or two about the next Call of Duty game, but across multiple development teams, it's easy for false information to start circulating.

    With that being said, a current rumor spreading across the internet suggests that the next Call of Duty game will be a sequel to the original World at War. Before we get into the likelihood of such a thing happening or not, I just have to say that a world war game would be an incredibly refreshing change, and I'd absolutely love to see such a game reach the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4.

    In reality though, we can't quite be sure if World at War will be the next Call of Duty game or not. The leak comes from a fairly unreputable source on Twitter. Despite this, it has caused quite a big stir up in the community, and the same leaker has posted similar 'Call of Duty leaks' in the past.

    The trouble is that another insider has denied that such a game will ever come to light, especially not this year. But it's hard to know who to trust - the real industry insider, who may or may not be trying to keep things under wraps, or the fairly unknown leaker who suggests the next game will indeed by World at War 2?

    All we can do is wait for more information. If the rumors are to be trusted, we'll find out more about World at War 2 in May this year.

  • New Battlefield Hardline Details Unveiled

    battlefield hardline mapsEA has just revealed a bunch of new bits of information about their upcoming game, Battlefield Hardline, including details about new maps, weapons and equipment.

    Firstly, the two newly announced maps have been named as Bloodout and Hollywood Hills. As you can imagine, the latter of these two maps places players in a large Hollywood villa. Whilst the level is considerably smaller than some others, the large size of the villa will give players enough space to breathe in.

    The other map, Bloodout, is a set of inner city streets based on real life Los Angeles. The difference between Battlefield Hardline's depiction of LA and the real life LA is that there is a lot more debris, wrecked cars and scrap in Battlefield, as can be expected.

    In other news, Steve Papoutsis, Vice president of Visceral Games and Battlefield Hardline, revealed that there will be a total of 51 weapons and 38 gadgets in Battlefield Hardline. Considering players have access to primary and special weapons, I'd expect we'd be left with a lineup of around 20 different primary weapons to pick from.

    On top of the large variety of weapons, a massive 27 new vehicles are being added to Hardline, although a large pool of these may be varying civilian vehicles or variations of vehicles already in the Battlefield franchise.

    Are you excited to hear about all of the new features in Battlefield Hardline? The game will be releasing on March 17th, so we haven't got too long to wait.

  • New Master Chief Collection Patch Releasing Soon

    Master Chief Collection PatchA new patch was planned to roll out for the Master Chief Collection last week but it has since been delayed. The patch had been mentioned to include some fixes to matchmaking whilst adding some general tweaks to multiplayer, campaigns and interfaces.

    Whilst 343 Industries failed to mention why the patch was delayed, they have since confirmed that the release of the patch has been pushed back till later this January. According to 343, the patch should be up and ready to install within the "next few days."

    It's a shame that after all this time, the Master chief Collection is still not working 100% as planned, but 343 are still working on it.

    The patch notes for the upcoming patch rolling out later this week can be read below.

    Matchmaking:
    Improved matchmaking search success rates.
    Made an update to reduce instances of "Awaiting Privileges" matchmaking errors.
    Made an update to ensure player counts more reliably match the expected numbers for each playlist.
    Fixed an issue where player would sometimes appear to be searching in an incorrect "FIND GAME" screen.
    Added countdown sound effect to the voting timer

    General multiplayer:
    Made several improvements to party joining through the in-game Roster.
    Made an update to ensure that the mute icon is visible while in Matchmaking.
    Fixed an issue in Halo 4 where players could equip the same weapon as their primary and secondary weapons.

  • Tony Hawk Confirms New PS4 Skateboarding Game

    tony hawk ps4Good news, everybody! At this years CES, Tony Hawk showed up at Sony's keynote to reveal some pretty exciting news. According to Hawk, there is a new project currently in development for the PlayStation 4 that Tony Hawk is getting involved with.

    As you can guess, yes it will be a skateboarding game, but besides this obvious fact it’s unclear what we can expect. Further details were not given about the upcoming Tony Hawk skateboarding game for the PlayStation 4.

    Earlier in 2014, Tony Hawk did mention that there was something "fans of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater series will be hyped" about. Could this mean we may see a more traditional Tony Hawk Pro Skater game?

    Hopefully this is the case - the last two Tony Hawk games used external skateboard peripherals, and as soon as this started, the Tony Hawk series went downhill, literally and figuratively.

    If Tony Hawk moves back to a more button mashin' style approach for the PlayStation 4, I'm sure a lot of fans of the series will be very, very happy.

    Before the two 'ride' games by Tony Hawk, Proving Ground and Project 8 were released - these took a step closer to more realistic skateboarding, and it was a move that divided the Tony Hawk player base.

    It's clear at this point that the most successful Tony Hawk games were the humorous, not-so-realistic games, so hopefully Activision keeps this in mind. Would you be interested in a new Tony Hawk game?

  • PlanetSide 2 PS4 Beta Coming This Month

    planetside 2 ps4At long last, the PlanetSide 2 beta is finally making it's way to the PlayStation 4. Announced before the console was even released, PlanetSide 2 is a free to play FPS sci-fi shooter that features huge open world battles between three different player factions.

    Each faction must work together to call out strategies in an attempt to take control of different areas of territory within the open world. As a player works towards capturing territory and defending faction outposts, experiences and credits will be rewarded.

    Experience will go towards unlocking new items, whilst credits can be used to purchase the items. As you can imagine, there is a third currency that players can earn by spending real money on the game.

    The in-game currency can be used to fast track players towards better equipment, but everything, besides cosmetic items, can be earned by simply playing the game. It does, however, take quite a long time to accumulate enough credits and experience to purchase some of the higher tiered items.

    The closed beta for PlanetSide 2 on the PlayStation 4 will launch on the 20th of January, although it will be restricted to a few thousand players to start, and only those who previously signed up for beta access will be given a key.

    Once the closed beta has finished, the PS4 version of PlanetSide 2 will then go back into development, before presumably opening up to another closed or open beta later on in the year.

  • Dead Kings DLC for Assassin's Creed Unity Detailed

    dead kings dlcUbisoft have just released more information on the first of many upcoming DLC releases planned for Assassin's Creed Unity. The DLC in question has been named Dead Kings, and it will feature a new story, new enemies and even a new weapon.

    Dead Kings takes place right after the ending of Unity, following Arno as he leaves Paris for another city named Saint Denis. In this city, a series of underground crypts has been rumored to keep the bodies of dead French kings.

    As you can imagine, the Dead Kings DLC will follow Arno as he makes his way down into the crypt. Arno will fight against other crypt raiders, as well as having access to an interestingly named Guillotine gun.

    On top of the new single player story, there will be some new open world activities, including new murder mysteries, enigmas and a few co-op missions as well.

    If you were unaware, the Dead Kings DLC has been put up for free by Ubisoft as an apology gift for the games terrible launch. On top of this, season pass holders will be given a free game as a reward for buying into Assassin's Creed Unity.

    Out of the free games, season pass holders can choose between The Crew, Far Cry 4, Assassin's Creed Black Flag, Rayman Legends, Watch Dogs, Rayman Legends or Just Dance 2014.

    Will you be picking up a free game from the list above? If so, which game will you aim for? I definitely think Far Cry 4 and The Crew are the top picks, but Watch Dogs and AC: Black Flag could be a good choice if you've already got the other two games.

  • Elder Scrolls Online May Get February Xbox One Launch

    elder scrolls online launchSo, the Elder Scrolls Online has been quietly chugging along on the PC for a year now, but the release of the console version of the game has been delayed to a point where nobody knows when it's going to come.

    In fact, there was a point where some gamers believed Zenimax had completely abandoned the console port. Recently, it was revealed that Zenimax have still been working on the Xbox One and PS4 version of the Elder Scrolls Online, but they don't want to release it until they have reached a certain developmental milestone with the PC version.

    We are surprisingly nearing closer to that point each and every day, and Zenimax have been rumored to be gearing up for a console launch fairly soon. This week, a Microsoft store listing appeared for the Elder Scrolls Online, along with a date which read as the 24th of February.

    Shortly after this date was added to the website, the store listing was changed, and the release date is now listed as "2015."

    It seems odd that Microsoft would make a specific listing on their store without receiving information from Zenimax themselves, so it could be very possible that the Elder Scrolls Online will release for Xbox One, and most likely the PS4, on the 24th of February.

    It sounds as though this is a placeholder date though, and if development hits any snags, it could easily be pushed back a month or two. Either way, the console version of the Elder Scrolls Online really isn't that long off now.

  • Microsoft Pushing for More Xbox One Game Discounts

    xbox one discounts christmasThe months leading up to the Holiday season are always pretty hectic, but for major tech manufacturers like Microsoft, things get incredibly crazy. With the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 currently fighting for the top spot, Microsoft had a lot to do to manage to get an upper hand on Sony's new console.

    One way Xbox managed to do this was by pushing for more deals and better bargains, and over the black Friday weekend, Microsoft managed to rake in a huge amount of sales thanks to their discounts around the globe, and this actually helped them to secure the most sold console units for that month.

    It isn't going to stop at black Friday either - Microsoft have learned that good deals make sales, and in tune with this they have regularly been putting up discounts on their consoles, and most recently, their first party titles, and some selected third party games as well.

    Firstly, digital copies of both Destiny and Call of Duty Advanced Warfare have been put up for just $19.99, half of their standard retail price. Secondly, the above games can also be purchased as a physical copy for $29.99.

    Halo The Master Chief Collection has been dropped to $45, and both Forza Horizon 2 and Sunset Overdrive now have digital copies going for $35. These discounts are not quite like the bargains available for both Destiny and Call of Duty, but still very generous nonetheless.

  • Uncharted 4 Looks Incredible on PS4

    uncharted 4So a new gameplay trailer of Uncharted 4 was just released, and the internet has been taken aback by how amazing the game currently looks. Personally, I'm not all that surprised at the quality of the fourth Uncharted installment, and I'll tell you why.

    Every time Naughty Dog have released a new game, their attention to detail has always been on point - they managed to release the Last of Us on the PS3 and make it look incredible, and every Uncharted release has always been miles ahead of every other game released in it's time in terms of graphical integrity.

    This time round, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End certainly looks like the best game the PlayStation 4 will have to offer, and everything from the sweat on Drake's back, to the pores in his face are textured by hand, and it's just phenomenal how Naughty Dog continue to amaze with the quality of their games.

    Something that really got me interested about the latest gameplay video was the amazing combat - it seems every fight was action packed and filled with tense struggles, especially when Drake was not equipped with a weapon, but his assailant was.

    I honestly think Uncharted 4 will be the best PlayStation 4 game for a long while, and there isn't really much coming anytime soon that will have the story, graphics and love that Naughty Dog have poured into A Thief's End. What are your thoughts on the game? Feel free to let us know your own opinions.
