  • Assassin's Creed Unity Gets Live Gameplay on Twitch

    AC Unity live streamAssassin's Creed is now very close to launching, and Ubisoft have been revealing all there is about the game leading up to it's launch. Over the weekend, Ubisoft hosted a stream to showcase a whole ton of Assassin's Creed Unity gameplay, and there was a lot to take in from this event.

    The livestream event that was hosted on Twitch was hosted for around 9 hours, and within this stream, a good chunk of that time was spent on streaming live gameplay from Assassin's' Creed Unity.

    The live stream showed off a bunch of interesting elements of the game, including the brand new character customization options and a look into some of the story missions available in Assassin's Creed Unity.

    The live stream also showed off the versatility available within all of the side missions within Unity, and focused on the brand new environment that has been set in France. Quite frankly, Ubisoft have done an amazing job with AC: Unity, and it looks absolutely stunning, both in terms of graphics and gameplay.

    Perhaps the most interesting part of the livestream is the segment where Ubisoft focused on the multiplayer in Assassin's Creed Unity. Multiplayer has always been a tacked on add-on to the main story, but in Unity, it does look very enjoyable and will be an integral part of the game.

    Assassins' Creed Unity will be released on November 11th for the PS4, the Xbox One and the PC in North America, November 13th for the same consoles in the UK, and December 4th for Japan.

  • Huge Halo 5 Guardians Leak - Aim Down Sight Myths Squashed

    Halo 5 Guardians ADSSo far, Microsoft have managed to keep things about Halo 5 Guardians pretty quiet, and the only content about the game that we have learned about in the past has come straight from Xbox themselves. However, over the weekend, a massive leak showing video footage of Halo 5 hit the internet, and it stirred a frenzy.

    Whilst the leak has pretty much been wiped from the web as of writing, the internet never forgets, and we can all still recall what the video displayed. The gameplay showed a few seconds of combat, focusing on a player using a Battle Rifle.

    What was clear right away was the changes that had seemed to be made to the ADS in Halo. Ever since Combat Evolved, ADS has been limited to scoped weapons like sniper rifles and battle rifles, and the strange new battle rifle ADS in Halo 5 Guardians confused many players into thinking that ADS would be the norm in the upcoming Halo game.

    However, a 343i official responded to the leak on Twitter and stated that ADS will not be the norm in Halo 5 Guardians. The tweet was as follows.

    "No penalty to hip fire in H5, no movement penalty when scoping/zooming, no flinch. Tune in for the beta gameplay reveal at #HaloFest Monday."

  • Huge Advanced Warfare Leaks Hit The Web

    advanced warfare map leaksConsidering it is now so close to the release date of Advanced Warfare, it's expected that the internet is going to be filled with all sorts of leaked content from early release copies and other sources.

    Fortunately for us, a lot of information about Advanced Warfare has been released over the last couple of weeks, and Sledgehammer Games are not happy about it. It's all good news for us though.

    Whilst we don't have any footage to share with you today, we do have a bit of info to share about Advanced Warfare. For example, 13 maps for the game have been revealed, and we have the names for these maps below.

    - Ascend
    - Bio Lab
    - Comeback
    - Defender
    - Detroit
    - Greenland
    - Horizon
    - Instinct
    - Recovery
    - Retreat
    - Riot
    - Solar
    - Terrace

    There is also a section for bonus maps, which is currently empty. This is most likely a spot reserved for future DLC maps. I think 13 maps at launch is a nice amount, and I hope that there is enough variety in these maps to keep players interested for a lengthy period of time.

    I felt like the map design on COD Ghosts was a bit weak, so here's to hoping that Sledgehammer Games do Advanced Warfare justice with some decent map design.

    Map design will be more important than ever as the new Exo Suits will give players more opportunities to traverse the environment. Previous rumors suggested that there will be a lot more verticality in the new Advanced Warfare maps, but so far we aren't sure whether this will hold true or not.

    To prepare for the new Exo Suit get yourself a custom Master Mod controller from Evil Controllers. The Master Mod will put you a cut above the rest and results will be seen immediately.

  • Bloodborne "Only Possible" On PS4

    bloodborne ps4 exclusiveAccording to the developers of Bloodborne, the upcoming RPG title was "only possible" on the new PlayStation 4.

    Game director Hidetaka Miyazaki revealed that Bloodborne would not have been able to perform on previous generation consoles, meaning that the game would only be possible on the PS4 due to From Software's and Sony's current exclusivity partnership.

    "I [have] always wanted to make a game set in the Victorian era, but to make it look good - with all of the clothing, the architecture and things - required a console more powerful than the ones that were around. The arrival of the PS4 finally gave us that," Miyazaki revealed in a new interview with PlayStation LifeStyle.

    Miyazaki went on to explain that, "Bloodborne isn't a game that could have been cross-generation, it was only possible on PS4."

    To clear up any forthcoming confusion, Miyazaki did forget to mention that the game could run on the Xbox One - it could, but Bloodborne will be exclusive to the PlayStation 4 so it makes sense for him to specifically mention Sony and the PS4, instead of 'new gen consoles' when asked about From Software's decision to stick to just the PlayStation 4 for release.

    For those unaware, Bloodborne will a game with similar elements to Demon Souls and Dark Souls, however the title will be slightly more forgiving than previous franchises by From Software.

    Bloodborne will be released on 6th of February next year as a brand new PlayStation exclusive. Recent gameplay from TGS 2014 revealed a couple of new classes.

  • Beyond Two Souls Might Be Coming to the PS4

    beyond two souls ps4According to new rumors, Beyond Two Souls may be coming to the PlayStation 4 some time in the near future. Packaged as a 'director's cut,' the new alleged PlayStation 4 compatible Beyond Two Souls will come with a range of previously removed scenes, and an overhaul on some scenes already within the game.

    This isn't the first time we've heard rumors circulate about a PlayStation 4 Beyond Two Souls port, and it's certainly not going to be the last, but until we hear something substantial from an official source there's no way of knowing how likely it is that Beyond Two Souls will actually make it to the PS4.

    The source for the new rumors leads to two German retail websites, both of which have listed up the 'Beyond Two Souls director's cut' for release on the PlayStation 4. Earlier in the year, a programmer working on the game listed a PlayStation 4 remake within his portfolio, so there is definitely something related to a new Beyond Two Souls release happening in the background.

    Considering that Beyond Two Souls sold over 1 million copies as an exclusive, and was released around the same time the PlayStation 4 was announced, it is completely likely that a new director's cut version for the PS4 is being worked on, but don't hold your breath just yet.

    Hopefully we will hear an official statement from Quantic Dream at some point in the near future - until then, we'll have to take these rumors with a grain of salt.

  • 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.
