  • Space Hulk: DeathWing Set to Be Warhammer 40K FPS Game

    space hulk deathwingGame developer Streum on Studio have just announced a brand new title with Games Workshops' Warhammer 40K universe, and from it's first reveal, things are looking pretty interesting. It’s certainly not the first time a Space Hulk game was announced, but it may be the first time a lot of people start to get truly excited. We've already seen many Warhammer adaptations, but none have quite been as action packed as we could have hoped.

    Warhammer Space Marine 40K was probably the first title that shared the potential a set of well-developed Warhammer games could have on the industry, so this new announcement by Streum on Studio for a brand new Warhammer game is very good to hear.

    The new Warhammer game has been named Space Hulk: DeathWing, and unlike other adaptations of the well known Warhammer board game, DeathWing will be an action packed first person shooter experience, and it is headed for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

    In Space Hulk, players take control of a group of heavily armored Space Marines who adventure onto a space hulk, a word used to describe a huge collection of wrecked ships, asteroids and other space debris. These space hulks are usually crawling with Tyranid, a race of devouring space aliens.

    It sounds like a pretty good premise for a game, and hopefully we'll hear more about DeathWing leading up to it's planned 2015 release date.

  • GameStop COD Advanced Warfare Pre-orders Come With DLC for Previous COD Titles

    Advanced Warfare Preorder bonusesGameStop is hosting a brand new promotion that rewards gamers for pre-ordering the new Call of Duty Advanced Warfare from their retail stores or their online website. If you choose to pre-order the new Call of Duty title through GameStop, you will be given a new personalization DLC pack that can be downloaded for both Black Ops 2 and Call of Duty Ghosts as soon as your pre-order goes through.

    The personalization pack offers a host of new Advanced Warfare themed cosmetic apparel, including a new weapon camo, a player patch, player card, a new reticle and a player background.

    None of this content provides any bonus to gameplay, and simply serves as an additional pack of personalization items, just as the name of the pack suggests. So far, it seems the only way to get ahold of this pack is by pre-ordering through GameStop.

    No other pre-order bonuses have been announced at this point, but it wouldn't be surprising if some kind of bonus for Advanced Warfare was announced at some point before it's release date.

    Call of Duty Advanced Warfare is the first COD title fully developed by Sledgehammer games, and it will be released in November this year for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. A separate development studio is working on a previous gen port for PS3 and Xbox 360. The new futuristic approach could help to refresh the series, but the same basic Call of Duty multiplayer experience is bound to make it into Advanced Warfare.

  • Sunset Overdrive Gameplay Reveal Planned for E3 2014

    sunset overdrive e3 2014Hopefully we'll get a bunch of great new content to gawk at this year at E3, and although we'll be seeing a lot of new games and IPs, we may also see more about some of the stuff we saw last year.

    One such thing is Sunset Overdrive - a game that was revealed last year, and has still not come to a final release. The title offered players a bright and wacky world to explore, and it was certainly one of the most creative games we've heard of in a while.

    So far though, we really haven't heard much after the first E3 reveal in 2013, and since then, Insomniac Games, the development studio behind the title has kept pretty quiet. Finally though, they are ready to speak, and we may end up hearing and seeing a lot about Sunset Overdrive before or on E3 this year.

    It has been revealed that despite the E3 trailer only showing multiplayer content, Sunset Overdrive will feature a single player campaign experience, and whilst there has been a lot of good content prepared for E3, there will also hopefully be some pre-E3 details ready to revealed very soon.

    I personally cannot wait to hear a bit more about the upcoming Xbox One exclusive title, and hopefully it won't be too long before Sunset Overdrive is ready for release.

    We'll keep you updated on any new information about Sunset Overdrive as Insomniac Games reveals it over the next two months.

  • Guerrilla Games Gearing Up to Reveal New IP at E3 2014

    guerrilla games new IPGuerrilla Games won't be working on a new Killzone game for their next title release, but instead will focus on a brand new IP, according to a new job listing by the development studio.

    According to the job listing, the new IP by Guerrilla Games will feature online multiplayer, singleplayer and co-op experiences, however no other information from the studio has been given.

    Luckily though, a bit of information has leaked from an insider, who also leaked content on the PS4 1.70 update, so although the information from the tipster may be false, it's pretty likely the information shared could be pretty on track with Guerrilla Game's plans for the future.

    The insider revealed that Guerrilla Games plan to reveal their new game at E3 this year, and despite Killzone Shadowfall selling over 2 million copies, it's definitely clear that the upcoming game will be a completely new IP.

    Like all of Guerrilla Game's titles, the new IP will be exclusive to Sony, and will be developed for PlayStation 4, making it the second title Guerrilla Games will have on the console. Considering that Guerrilla Games have experience with the Killzone franchise, it could be possible that the new game offers some sort of shooter experience, but at this point in time there's no real way of knowing.

    We'll have to wait for Guerrilla Games to unveil more information on their upcoming IP, but hopefully we will all be in for a treat this year at E3.

  • Unreal Engine 4 Powered Thriller Coming to PS4

    without memory ps4From what we've seen the Unreal Engine 4 looks absolutely stunning. Unreal Engine 3 has been used for years, and despite now being many years old, games can still look beautiful and run ridiculously smoothly when built on the Unreal Engine.

    Hopefully the 4th rendition of Unreal Engine will be able to render even more life-like graphics whilst still staying smooth and easy on the eyes in terms of frame rate and overall performance.

    We'll probably see dozens of Unreal Engine 4 powered games in the near future, and a brand new one that has just popped up is a thriller title by the name of Without Memory. This particular title is being developed by a Russian development studio by the name of Dinosaurum Games, and it is planned for a release some time in 2016.

    In Without Memory, the player will follow the story of a girl who awoke in the middle of a forest without any prior memories, and according to Dinosaurum Games, this 'interactive thriller' will have tens of endings.

    It looks like Without Memory will offer a similar play experience to Quantic Dream's Beyond: Two Souls, however it's sounds like Dinosaurum Games will make sure the player feels as if their choices really matter, which is something that Beyond: Two Souls failed to capture.

    2016 is still quite far away though, but hopefully we will hear more about Without Memory fairly soon. Perhaps we'll even see some kind of cinematic reveal at this year's E3.

  • H1Z1 Stream Shows 50 Minutes of In-Game Footage

    h1z1 gameplay footageDayZ Standalone has taken the world by storm, and the game and it's mod have brought a whole new genre of games into the world of gaming. However, since it's release, we have yet to see a decent zombie survival game make it to consoles.

    Sony plans to change that by releasing their game, H1Z1, which has ambitions to be the very best in open world apocalypse survival. It sounds like a very ambitious project, and last week I talked about how it would be unlikely to see it released anytime soon.

    I was clearly wrong, and Sony Online Entertainment really want to push forward with this game. Last week, a live stream by the developers of H1Z1 made it to Twitch.TV, and it included around 50 minutes of real in-game gameplay footage.

    Nothing was scripted, and we were literally subjected to the whole H1Z1 experience, or at least what was available of it at the time.

    It look underdeveloped, and a little patchy on content, but this is what we've come to expect from a game so early on in development. By watching the gameplay I did see a lot of potential for the title though, and the developers talked a lot about building mechanics similar to Rust, survival mechanics, gunplay and servers that could support up to 1000 players thanks to the powerful Planetside 2 engine that the game is being built upon.

    H1Z1 is certainly a game to look forward to, and early access will be made available later this year. Upon it's full release, players will be able to hop in-game completely for free.

  • Civilization Beyond Earth Revealed

    civilization beyond earth trailerA new trailer has been shown off at PAX East by Firaxis Games to showcase a brand new Civilization game, under the title Beyond Earth. Civilization Beyond Earth will be a brand new title in the game series, and as the name suggests, it will take players into ambitious new environments.

    Civilization Beyond Earth will give players the opportunity to take their civilizations up into space. The trailer that Firaxis created has stated that, "As part of an expedition sent to find a home beyond Earth, lead your people into a new frontier, explore and colonize an alien planet and create a new civilization in space."

    The release date for Civilization Beyond Earth has been set for a release later in this year in 2014, most likely this Fall. The trailer has strangely only suggested that the title will be available on Civilization Beyond Earth, but hopefully it will be adapted for consoles as well.

    Firaxis has been well known for it's great strategy franchises, with XCOM Enemy Unknown being their latest release.

    However, the civilization games have always received the biggest bundles of praise for being fully featured and unique strategy game experiences, and taking the franchise into space could really make things ever more interesting.

    We'll keep you updated on Civilization Beyond Earth as more information comes in - hopefully we'll see some proper gameplay footage closer to the launch date, which as mentioned before, will most likely be later this year in Fall.

  • New Mass Effect Game Now in Playable State

    There's still no real information on what kind of game the new Mass Effect game will be, but BioWare general manager Aaryn Flynn revealed that the game is now in a "playable state" and it feels "fresh, but recognizable."

    It's already been confirmed that the new Mass Effect game won't be a direct sequel or prequel to the Commander Shephard series, and will instead focus on an entirely different story within the Mass Effect universe.

    In fact, Commander Shephard and his crew won't play any part in the new Mass Effect game at all, and the gameplay will be entirely different to what we remember from the first trilogy.

    Whilst this doesn't give much information about what kind of gameplay the new Mass Effect game will offer, it suggests that the game will offer a different gameplay experience to the action shooter RPG we've recognized in ME1, 2 and 3.

    This could mean we could end up with a Mass Effect golfing game for all we know, but it's much more likely to involve some kind of combat. Perhaps we'll end up with a team based shooter that has a larger focus on squad tactics.

    new mass effect game

    Or perhaps BioWare will go with the trends and turn the new Mass Effect game into an online multiplayer experience, an MMO? FPS deathmatch game? Who knows..

     

    We'll have to wait till BioWare releases more information about the upcoming title, unfortunately.

  • Modern Era Screenshots Shown for Assassins Creed: Black Flag

    It's easy to get caught up in the events that happen within the Assassins' Creed animus, but the truth of the matter is that within the game world, the Animus is not what is being played out in the real modern world.

    In Assassins' Creed IV Black Flag, game director Ashraf Ismail has previously said that within Black Flag, the modern era areas will work as a place where players can meet and interact with each other.

    Ashraf Ismail has said “The feeling and the mood of the present day will be a big surprise for people. Imagine when you exit that workstation, you have this building that you can explore and you can find stuff. So we really push it. For us, that part is an homage to our fans."

    It seems as if the modern era area will work out to be some kind of online lobby, and judging by the screenshots, the place certainly looks like quite a nice place to hang out.

    Do you think the developers of the Assassins' Creed series need to work hard into integrating the animus into the story or do you think the whole idea of the animus should be dropped?

  • New Batman Arkham Origins Screenshots

    We've heard bits of info on Batman Arkham Origins here and there, but so far we haven't seen any in-game 'evidence' of the game. No screen shots and no videos have previously been shown. That is till now though, as Warner Brother's has just released some images on the upcoming title, and they are good enough to convince us that the third Arkham game may be the best one yet.

    While we've discussed the strange combination of enemies found within Arkham Origins, there's no denying that the new screenshots really show how amazing the characters look. Villains like Deathstroke, Black Mask, and the slightly slimmer version of Penguin have been redesigned a little to better reflect the dark atmosphere in Arkham Origins and they fit right in. Of course, Batman is looking just as good as ever.

    Are you looking forward to Arkham Origins? The game is releasing on October 25th for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U and the PC.
