  • Bloodborne Patch 1.04 Now Live

    bloodborne patch 1.04A brand new patch for Bloodborne has been pushed out to the PlayStation 4 servers, and any players who connect online will have to download the patch before being able to play again. The update, named patch 1.04, brings a number of bug fixes, as well as some gameplay changes to Bloodborne.

    Patch 1.04 has been in development for quite some time now so the patch consists of quite a lot of different features. The entire patch clocks in at just under 300MB so whilst it won't take forever to install, it certainly is quite a beefy patch.

    Among some of the changes, players can now store up to 600 quicksilver bullets and blood vials in the storage in Hunter's Dream. Before patch 1.04 the limit was just 99. I think this feature is one of the most convenient for players, although more has been done to Bloodborne in patch 1.04.

    Some weapons and hunter tools have had buffs applied to them. Unfortunately From Software hasn't gone into too much detail about these buffs and what they apply to. Good news is that bosses in the Chalice Dungeons will now have a chance to drop a random number of blood gems. This gives players a bit more of an incentive to fight bosses in the Chalice Dungeons.

    Chalice dungeons will also now include Blood Stone Shards at Depth 1, Twin Blood Stone Shards at Depth 2, Twin Blood Stone Shards and Blood Stone Chunks at Depth 3, Blood Stone Chunks at Depth 4 and Blood Stone Chunks and Blood Rocks at Depth 5.

  • Upcoming Battlefield Hardline DLC Detailed

    battlefield hardline dlcThe first Battlefield Hardline DLC has now been announced by Visceral Games and some of the content we can expect to find in the expansion has been detailed.

    The first Battlefield Hardline DLC has been called Criminal Activity. As expected, Criminal Activity will come with four new maps. The expansion may include other content as well but at this point in time it has not be announced by Visceral Games or EA.

    Two of the new Battlefield Hardline maps will be set at night, whilst the other two will be set at day. All four maps will be set in Florida and California so we can expect to be fighting in an urban environment. Personally I think urban maps are the best settings for Hardline, so it's great to see we’ll be getting some more city action soon.

    Unfortunately no solid release date for Criminal Activity has yet been revealed. We do know that the next DLC pack for Battlefield Hardline, which is scheduled for release after Criminal Activity will be launching in the summer of 2015. This means that we should see Criminal Activity anywhere from now till the start of summer.

    No pricing has been given for the Criminal Activity DLC as of yet but it will come as part of the season pass, so if you're a Battlefield Premium user you'll be able to pick up Criminal Activity for free. Premium members will also gain access to the DLC expansion two weeks before standard players.

  • New Yoshimitsu Revealed for Tekken 7

    new yoshimitsu tekken 7Bandai Namco has finally announced that Yoshimitsu will be returning to the franchise in Tekken 7. With Yoshimitsu being one of my favorite fighting characters of all time, I was pretty excited to hear the news, but Bandai Namco has done something a little... strange with him.

    If you look back to previous Tekken games, you'll notice that Yoshimitsu never really has one appearance style. He'll always have drastically different costumes in each game. For those who don't keep an eye on the series it's easy to lose track of what Yoshimitsu actually looks like.

    The latest rendition of Yoshimitsu for Tekken 7 is beyond a shadow of a doubt the weirdest we've ever seen him before. Yoshimitsu now has a number of tentacles branching off of his face.

    Yes, that's right. We've been tricked. Yoshimitsu has been a space squid on legs all this time. Whilst you may not personally like the new Yoshimitsu looks it's important to note that there are bound to be plenty of costume options and clothing items to create a Yoshimitsu that's more in lines with the original.

    And whilst Yoshimitsu's appearance is so different, his fighting style is still the same and that's all that really matters. Right?

    So far we still don't know when Tekken 7 will be released internationally. The game is already widely available in Japan. We'll keep you updated about the launch details for Tekken 7 as more information comes in. Hopefully the western release dates will be announced soon.

  • Upcoming Battlefield 4 DLC Will be Free

    battlefield hardline dlcBattlefield 4 has already had a season pass but DICE aren't quite done with developing content for the game just yet. However, instead of charging players extra on top of all the other additional DLC costs already tied onto Battlefield 4, DICE has made the noble choice to release all of the future DLC content for free.

    Whilst previous DLC will still cost players the same it does today, any new content created by DICE and released for Battlefield 4 from this day forwards will be absolutely free to all players.

    So far there are a lot of details that haven't been shared by DICE, but we do know that they are working on some new maps, including night time maps. The night maps should be variants of previously released maps. So far we already know that Siege of Shanghai, Zavod 311, and Golmud Railway will be receiving nighttime variants. A new community-made map is also in the works and should be released for free in the not too distant future.

    A new patch is planned for this Spring and it will come with some new content too. As well as fixing up some bugs, the Spring patch will add in five new weapons and the Gunmaster game mode.

    For those new to the Battlefield series, Gunmaster plays out just like other Gun Games. You'll start with one weapon and each kill will reward you with a new weapon. There are seventeen weapons to get through until you finally get given the knife. A knife kill will end the game.

  • Banjo Kazooie Successor Hits Kickstarter

    banjo kazooie yooka layleeA successor to the ever popular Banjo Kazooie franchise hit Kickstarter and it blew up the internet.

    We've all been wanting a new (decent) Banjo Kazooie game for years but it seems that Rare either has no interest or they've been too busy on other projects such as Kinect Sports Rivals. Thankfully a team of ex-Rare employees has banded together to make a development company called Playtonic Games and they are set to bring life to Banjo Kazooie again.

    Playtonic Games recently posted up a Kickstarter page for their upcoming game. Named Yooka-Laylee, the game will feature the same 3D buddy-duo platformer experience that made Banjo Kazooie so popular. Yooka-Laylee will be filled with all sorts of collectibles for players to find in the world. This time round, collectibles will play a meaningful part in the way new areas of the world are opened up.

    The audio and art team working on Playtonic Games are also going for a very Banjo Kazooie-esque theme and the main environment artist is Steven Hurst, the same guy responsible for the environments in Banjo Kazooie and Viva Pinata.

    Perhaps the most amazing of all so far is the Kickstarter goal for Yooka-Laylee. Playtonic Games were originally hoping to reach $270,000 to fund the development of the game. Within just a few days the funding has already reached close to 2 million and there is still over 30 days left to go. It'll be interesting to see just how much Playtonic Games can raise for Yooka-Laylee.

  • New SoulCalibur Could be Coming

    new soulcaliburWith all of the most recent fighting game releases, it would only be fitting to have a new SoulCalibur game somewhere along the way too. Surprisingly, this might actually happen. The development wing at Bandai Namco responsible for the SoulCalibur series has just posted something on their social media pages, suggesting that a new SoulCalibur game could be coming.

    On their Facebook page, the SoulCalibur developers posted a poll that asked fans about their favorite characters in the game franchise. Fans were only allowed one vote and the post stated that it would be used to help "Determine precisely who are the favorite characters of the community." The post then went on to say, "Project Soul is probably preparing something huge... Stay tuned and spread the news!"

    Whilst this doesn't directly confirm that a new SoulCalibur game is in the works, they did mention that this had nothing to do SoulCalibur Lost Swords but was designed for the SoulCalibur brand in general. Lost Swords was a free to play game set in the SoulCalibur universe that was released last year. As you can imagine, a lot of fans were a little upset about this release, and everybody is impatiently waiting for the next big real game.

    We're all hoping for a SoulCalibur 6 and it could definitely be coming. We may get something else instead, but something new from the Soul team is on it's way. Let's hope Bandai Namco reveals something soon.

  • Multiplayer Maps for Black Ops 3 Revealed

    multiplayer maps black ops 3I'm actually quite excited about the singleplayer for Call of Duty Black Ops 3, but what's equally as exciting is the new changes being made to the multiplayer.

    The multiplayer is of course where the majority of players will be spending most of their time, so if you are like me you are probably wondering about the different maps that will be available at launch.

    Fortunately, a few details on the maps in Black Ops 3 have already been shared, along with some other multiplayer information. We only have details about three different maps so far, but that's more than enough to keep us patiently waiting a little bit longer for more information.

    The known map details are provided below.

    Hunted: A Mid to long range engagement map with a waterfall in the middle allowing for swimming mechanics

    Combine: A tight, close quarters map allowing for SMG's and shotguns to dominate with a risky wall running spot.

    Stronghold: A snowy/icy based map in the foothills of Switzerland, allowing for CQB with long range engagements

    Treyarch have also given details on the game modes that will be returning to Black Ops 3. These have been listed below.

    Team Deathmatch
    Domination
    Kill Confirmed
    Hard point
    Free for All
    Ground War
    Demolition
    Search and Destroy
    Capture the Flag

    Finally, a new rumor has suggested that a brand new weapon customization system was coming to Black Ops 3. Called GunSmith, players will be able to use this system to create their own weapon camos, using up to 64 layers to place on three sides of their weapon.

  • Limited Edition Halo 5 Xbox one Console Planned

    halo 5 xbox one consoleHalo has always been a big Xbox seller, so it's not really surprising that Microsoft and 343 Industries are planning to release a limited edition Halo 5 themed Xbox One console that will come with a copy of the upcoming game.

    So far we have very few details about the limited edition Halo 5 console, although we know that it is definitely coming. The news was revealed on Twitter by Josh Holmes, the studio head for Halo 5: Guardians.

    Details about the limited edition console are bound to come at some point closer to the release of Halo 5. We'll be able to find out about how much the Halo 5 themed console will cost and also what it will look like. It makes sense that the console will be available on the same day Halo 5: Guardians is, which is October 27. Pre-orders for the console should hopefully open a little earlier than October 27.

    Two other limited edition versions of Halo 5: Guardians have already been confirmed, with details about those being more beefy. The first version is the $100 edition which comes with "new digital content to enhance Spartan combat and exclusive items wrapped in a uniquely designed steel book."

    A much pricier $250 version is also being released. The $250 edition of Halo 5 Guardians will come with the same features as above, along with a numbered statue. Here's to wondering whether there will be an even more ultimate edition with the statue, limited edition content and the Halo 5 console.

  • Black Ops 3 Will Have Titanfall Wall Running

    black ops 3 titanfallYou may have felt like Call of Duty Advanced Warfare took a few too many pages from Titanfall's book, but apparently Black Ops 3 is going to be taking some more pages. Treyarch has officially revealed some details about Black Ops 3, including information about a special wall running ability that will be in the game.

    Just like in Titanfall, to wall run in Call of Duty Black Ops 3 you will need to approach a wall at an angle to begin wall running. You will have an invisible "energy" meter, and once this runs out, you will come back off of the wall and land on the ground. Leaping between walls can increase your energy meter, so you could potentially keep wall running for a lengthy period of time.

    Treyarch have always been great at creating multiplayer maps, so let's hope they can create some maps that allow players to really make good use of the new wall running ability.

    Call of Duty Black Ops 3 will also have a new swimming mechanic. Players will now be able to cross through any areas of deep water. When swimming, a player will be able to keep their gun in their hands, allowing them to shoot whilst swimming.

    I think it would be interesting to see how Treyarch implement both the new swimming and wall running mechanics into the Black Ops 3 maps. Treyarch have the potential to turn both of these features into useful game additions, but without much effort they could just end up being not-so-useful gimmicks.

  • Release Date for Ultra Street Fighter IV Revealed

    ultra street fighter iv ps4You may want to go and check out the PlayStation blog because a new post has been released on there that reveals details about the release date of Ultra Street Fighter IV. We've already seen an Japan arcade release of Tekken 7 and Mortal Kombat X is now available worldwide, so Street Fighter fans are understandably getting hyped up for Ultra Street Fighter IV.

    According to the PlayStation blog, Ultra Street Fighter IV will be available in America and Europe on May 26 this year. The game will be available on PlayStation 4 for $24.99 and it will include all of the DLC that has been released in the past.

    If you have ever played Street Fighter IV on the PlayStation 3 and noticed that there was a slight input lag, you'll be happy to know that the PS4 release of Ultra Street Fighter IV will be free from the input lag problems seen in previous versions.

    Whilst we're not entirely sure how far the developer has gone to improve Ultra Street Fighter IV we do know that the resolution and frame rate has been improved. From what we can tell from the latest screenshots of the game, the character models and textures do seem to be a lot higher quality this time round.

    Will you be picking up the new PlayStation 4 version of Ultra Street Fighter IV when it lands in a month's time on May 26?
