  • Fallout 4 Countdown Teased

    Fallout 4After years worth of rumors and false information spreading across the internet about a new Fallout game, we may finally be hearing something official from Bethesda themselves. On Monday, some Fallout fans noticed that the official Fallout website design has changed.

    The previous content on the Fallout website has been replaced with a large countdown timer that will end at some time tomorrow. As you can imagine, there's definitely going to be some kind of Fallout related announcement tomorrow and it it's very likely that it could be to do with a brand new Fallout game.

    Considering that E3 is just around the corner it'd make perfect sense for Bethesda to announce a brand new game to grow hype ahead of the onslaught of other video games that are bound to be announced at E3.

    Unfortunately we still have no idea about what the next Fallout game will be like and Bethesda has done an incredible job to keep everything hidden from their fans. Once the countdown timer is over, however, we'll hopefully have a much better idea about what Bethesda has planned for the Fallout series.

    The last Fallout title, Fallout: New Vegas, was released in October and November 2010 as a standalone expansion to Fallout 3. Since then the Fallout franchise has mostly become dormant until today.

    As soon as we know more about Fallout 4 we shall keep you updated. For now, all we can do is wait in anticipation for the countdown timer to hit 0.

  • Batman Arkham Remastered May Be Coming

    batman arkham remasteredA survey has leaked online giving details about what could be Warner Bros. plans to release a remastered version of the Batman Arkham games. Whilst nothing is for definite at this point in time, the survey definitely suggested that Warner Bros. were certainly looking into the idea of bringing the entire collection to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

    In the survey, a number of questions are asked. One question asks respondents how likely they'd be interested in a remastered Batman collection, whilst another question asks what name respondents would prefer the game to be called. A few concept designs for the remastered versions front cover were also shared.

    In one area, it came across as if the Batman remastered collection was definitely going to happen. The information provided in the survey can be seen below, although the first sentence, stating "WB Game is recrafting the critically acclaimed and best-selling titles from Rocksteady Studios" is perhaps the most important.

    "WB Games is recrafting the critically acclaimed and best-selling titles from Rocksteady Studios, Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City, for the next-generation consoles." reads the survey summary. "Far from just up-reused visuals and textures, both games are being rebuilt from the ground with upgraded models, environments, lighting and HDR, effects and shaders, and new high quality post processing effects."

    Respondents could pick between Batman: Arkham Anthology, Batman: Absolute Arkham, Batman: Arkham Legacy, Batman: Arkham Masterpiece Collection and Batman: Arkham Remastered for the name for the game.

  • New God of War 3 Remastered Trailer Revealed

    god of war 3 remasteredA brand new trailer for the upcoming God of War 3 Remastered for the PlayStation 4 has been released and it depicts Kratos in all his HD glory. There's no doubt that God of War 3 Remastered looks like the most visually impressive game we've seen in from the IP so far. Players will be excited to hear that Sony are aiming for 1080P resolution and 60fps for God of War 3 Remastered, but the way Sony worded sounds as if a 60fps constant frame rate may not be guaranteed.

    Considering that the entire game will be getting a visual overhaul in God of War 3 Remastered, it'd be understandable to see why 60fps may not be achievable all of the time. Despite this, Sony are putting a lot of effort into the performance side of the PlayStation 4 port.

    If you plan to pre-order God of War 3 Remastered ahead of the launch of the game, Sony will offer up a few free bonuses. Unfortunately none of the bonuses will consist of in-game content because the remastered version has mostly untouched the content from the original God of War 3.

    Instead, players will be given a free dynamic theme for their PlayStation 4. The theme given out will be God of War - Fall of Olympus. If players pre-order through the PlayStation Network, the theme will be given out to those players this week instead of when the game releases.

    Players can also get a free 90 day rental for both God of War and God of War from the PlayStation Network for pre-ordering God of War 3 Remastered.

  • 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.

  • No Solo Campaign in Battlefront

    solo campaign battlefrontThere is a very large pool of gamers that are getting hyped up for the launch of Star Wars: Battlefront. Whilst EA and DICE have managed to impress most audiences so far, there is one area of Battlefront that will be completely missing and this may disappoint some gamers who prefer a more solo experience.

    Even though there will be some local co-op options for players and you will be able to connect to some content in Star Wars: Battlefront whilst offline, there will be no solo campaign in the game. Unlike previous Star Wars Battlefront titles, this means that players will be limited to playing the multiplayer mode or playing the Missions mode against AI opponents.

    The Missions mode gives players the opportunity to team up locally on one single console, but we're assuming that you'll also be able to play Missions on your own. The name Missions makes the mode sound a lot more interesting, but it's basically just a player Vs AI equivalent of the online multiplayer modes.

    The Missions mode can be completed online as well, and they are simply described as a series of objectives players can complete across different locations. This approach is very similar to the route Respawn Entertainment took with Titanfall.

    The lack of solo campaign isn't inherently a bad thing, but I really hope that the multiplayer is captivating to keep us coming back again and again. We'll have to wait till E3 for our next taste of Battlefront. Hopefully we'll see some gameplay at E3 considering Battlefront is now set to release this November.

  • Rainbow Six Siege Beta Registration Available

    rainbow six siege betaIf you're interested in trying out the new Rainbow Six game before it is released, you may want to go and head over to the Ubisoft website, as registration for the upcoming beta has officially opened.

    The beta will be available on PS4, Xbox One and PC, unlike the previous alpha test that was exclusively for PC players. Whilst there are no details on how many players will get the chance to play the Rainbow Six Siege beta, there is certainly a limited number of spaces available, and players can increase their chances by answering certain questions on the registration page.

    The registration page asks players about their experience with games in the past, as well as details about their rig if they are playing on PC, and general questions you'd expect to see from a closed beta registration.

    Whilst this is an option for players to try Rainbow Six Siege without buying the game, players can also pre-order to get 100% guaranteed access into the beta. So far, no details have been given on when the beta test will happen, how long it will last for, and whether it will be only beta or if it will be the first in a series of betas.

    Just like the beta launch date, the actual release of Rainbow Six Siege is not yet set in stone, but it's likely that the upcoming alpha and beta tests will help Ubisoft to determine how long they'll need to finish up the game ready for release.

  • Two Trailers released for Halo 5

    halo 5 two trailersTwo new live action teaser trailers have been released for Halo 5, and they delve a little bit into what we can expect from the campaign in the upcoming game from 343 Industries. A lot of fans have been going pretty mad over the new trailers, and it's now very clear that Halo 5: Guardians is going to have a very dramatic twist to what we know of the Halo universe.

    Both trailers depict the same scene, although one trailer shows it from the perspective of Agent Locke, a spartan that we have learned will be playable in Halo 5. The other trailer shows the scene from the perspective of the Master Chief.

    In the first trailer, we see Agent Locke walking towards a battle-worn Master Chief. Locke talks a little about how the Master Chief was seen as a savior, but how he then lead to cause chaos and disaster. The trailer ends with Locke pointing a Magnum towards a weak, unresponsive Chief.

    In the other instance of the trailer, the roles are reversed, and we can see the Master Chief towering over a weak Agent Locke instead.

    Halo 5: Guardians will allow players to play as both Locke and the Master Chief in different scenarios. We've seen a system like this before used in Halo 2, but this is the first time that both characters could end up meeting in such a dramatic fashion.

    Whilst some fans have suggested that the trailers may be hinting at a possible multi-choice ending for Halo 5: Guardians, I believe the trailer simply shows that both characters will have their own story for players to follow. They may meet together at some stage, and it won't look pretty.

  • More News About Mass Effect 4; Release 2016

    mass effect 4 release 2016Thanks to Chris Wynn, senior development director at Bioware for Mass Effect, we now have a collection of new details about the development of the latest Mass Effect title.

    Perhaps the most interesting tweet from Chris Wynn is the one that mentions their progress on combat and biotics. In Wynn's tweet, it read "Combat is looking pretty great in the latest builds. Biotics plus weapons plus powerful hardware is amazing."

    In other news, Shinobi602, a well known industry insider and leakster talked a little bit about the potential release date of the new Mass Effect game.

    "From people I've talked to close to the thing, it's still a 2016 release but haven't yet nailed down deciding between Spring or Fall. EA usually has multiple high-profile releases every year, and with Battlefield 5 targeting Q4 2016, for now until I hear more, I'm assuming earlier than Fall is the target. They did however release NFS Rivals and BF4 at the same time, so it could still be the Fall. Of course, delays are always possible with any game, but this thing's been in development since 2012. It won't skip next year."

    Of course, this information can't be taken as gospel, but Shinobi602 is usually very good at getting details right, and it would make sense that Mass Effect would be released in 2016.

    If this is the case, does that mean we might see something about the new Mass Effect at E3? It is completely possible, but all we can do for now is wait and see.

  • Tekken 7 Has Launched in Tokyo

    tekken 7 launchedAs expected, Tekken 7 has now launched in Japan, and from what we have seen so far it is looking like a pretty impressive game. Tekken 7 was already available in a select few arcade machines across Tokyo, but the game has now fully launched to console, and those in Japan can head in store to pick up a copy of the game.

    Tekken 7 has released with 20 different characters, although more are planned as extra content later on in the game's life. Five of these characters are brand new to the game, one of which is the end boss for the story mode.

    On top of the new characters, two new mechanics have been introduced to Tekken 7. The first is called Rage Art, and this gives players the ability to perform a series of unblockable moves that do a portion of the standard damage of the attacks they perform.

    The next new mechanic is called Power Crush, and it will allow players to continue attacking, even whilst being attacked by the enemy. This ability does have it's limitations though, and it can only stop damage from high and mid attacks.

    Both of these features seem aimed towards the more casual play style, giving players a chance at fighting back against their friends whilst in a fight that seems almost unwinnable. It will be interesting to see how these new mechanics affect high competitive play.

    So far, we're unsure when the game will release globally, but it shouldn't be too long before we see a worldwide release.
