  • Gearbox Hiring for Next Borderlands Game

    next borderlands gameOh, hurrah - Gearbox seem to be gearing up for yet another Borderlands game. If you haven't become bored of the franchise already, then you might be excited to hear this news. If you are bored of Borderlands, keep reading, this new game might offer something a little different if a new job listing is anything to go by.

    Gearbox president, Randy Pitchford took to Twitter to post an image asking for any individuals in the games industry to send their CVs to Randy's personal email. In the image, the words "Next Borderlands Team" were written, alongside lots of silhouetted figures. The phrase "This could be you" were written all over the image, which almost suggests that Randy and the guys at Gearbox are looking for a fairly large amount of new people to join their team.

    We've seen a few 'we're hiring' posts by developers in the past that inadvertently lead to us discovering about new upcoming games a little early, but these kind of posts usually offer a handful of positions at most.

    If Gearbox are really planning to recruit a whole new team for their next Borderlands game, does that mean they have something extra ambitious planned? Well, that could be completely possible. As well as linking his email address, Randy Pitchford mentioned that "This is the big one." in reference to the next Borderlands game.

    That sentence is enough to get me excited - I had honestly become bored of the franchise after completing the second game, but it sounds as if Borderlands 3 might be an entirely new beast that could help re-invent the Borderlands universe. If this is the case then I cannot wait to find out more about the game.

  • Uncharted Style Han Solo Game May be In the Works

    han solo gameDisney's purchase of Lucasarts may have caused a few upcoming Star Wars games to be canned, but it looks like the Star Wars name may now be force pushed further into the industry as rumors suggest Disney are gearing up to release another game from the same universe.

    According to the rumors circulating around the supposed Star Wars game, the new title will feature Han Solo as the protagonist. Whilst we know little about the gameplay of the rumored Han Solo game, many believe that the title may end up something a little like the Uncharted series.

    If that is the case, we sure can expect some interesting 3D platforming as well as a lot of explosive action, and maybe a Wookie or two along the way as well. The source of the rumors also suggest that part of the same team currently working on Battlefield Hardline will move over to working on the Han Solo game.

    DICE already has ties with the Star Wars universe and they are currently working on the new gen Battlefront title, but the latest Battlefield game is mostly under the control of another company, Visceral Games.

    Visceral Games do have experience with third person shooters, and previous rumors have suggested that the company are currently working on an "untitled Star Wars" game. There’s certainly a little bit of doubt in us about the likelihood of a Han Solo game appearing, but we’re hoping it could come to light. We expect Visceral could do a pretty good job with it.

  • Forza Motorsport 6 Is Coming

    forza motorsport 6It looks like Turn 10 have been busy. The next iteration in the lineup of Forza Motorsport games has been announced. Forza Motorsport 6 will be launching exclusively on Xbox One, and Microsoft have teamed up with Ford to give the new Ford GT a starring role in the game.

    Whilst we weren't expecting such an early announcement of Forza 6, Microsoft took to the North American International Auto Show to announce the new game, and it's clear that the Ford GT will be the car to feature on the cover of the upcoming game by Turn 10.

    The release of Forza Motorsport 6 will mark the tenth year anniversary of the game series, so as you can imagine, Turn 10 are feeling like doing something pretty special with the game. Alan Hartman, studio manager for Turn 10 mentioned that, "When we first were doing these, it would be kind of like, 'Hey please, can we have that new car you showed in Detroit?' That's where we were back 10 years ago. But over the last three or four years, the involvement with the manufacturers has really changed. They have really come to recognize that this is a very important venue for them,"

    So as you can imagine, manufacturers are now reaching out to games developers like Turn 10 to have their vehicles featured in their racing games. I think it's a nice transition in the game industry, and it shows that games are just enough of a powerful medium to translate ideas and products like any other.

    Let's just hope this new deal with Ford will allow Turn 10 to put more into the base game and less into extra DLC content like they have done with Forza Motorsport 5.

  • 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.

  • The Order: 1866 Making Progress With New Screenshots

    The order 1866 screenshotsThe Order: 1866 is currently sitting as one of the most anticipated PS4 exclusives for 2015, but despite the hype, many gamers are starting to wonder whether the game will end up as impressive as it was first made out to be.

    One thing is for sure is that the game will look gorgeous. Recently, a collection of new screenshots were released, showing off in-game scenes from The Order: 1866, and it's certainly clear to see that the game is looking better than it has in any previous builds.

    On top of a overall visual overhaul, it seems like the character models have been reworked to hold even more detail, and various special effects like motion blur and changes to lighting have been made.

    For those unaware, The Order: 1866 is an upcoming PS4 exclusive title that will feature cover based combat. The game has been compared to Gears of War in terms of gameplay, whilst the story and setting of the game is set right within the Victorian era.

    As you can expect, The Order: 1866 will be filled with all sorts of flintlock rifles and other Victorian weaponry. Currently, the game has been set for a February 20th release and it's looking more and more likely that this will be the final date.

    In fact, The Order: 1866 has just gone gold, meaning that the full game is complete and ready for shipping. If you want to check out the new trailer celebrating the completion of The Order: 1866, you can do so here.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Digital Pre-orders for Evolve Will Reward Players Free Content

    digital evolve pre-ordersIf you are looking to buy Evolve, you may want to consider getting a pre-order in. The developers of Evolve have just announced that the game has gone gold, and to celebrate they are offering some in-game rewards for anybody that chooses to pre-order the digital copy of the game.

    If you pre-order the digital version of Evolve on the Xbox One, you will be given free access to the open beta that is going to take place on January 15th. This beta will included one monster named Wraith, and four hunters, named Parnell, Abe, Caira and Cabot.

    As well as having a little sneaky access to this content in the beta version of Evolve, players who pre-order the digital version of the game for Xbox One will also be given the same five characters at launch for free, straight from day one.

    Those who do not pre-order Evolve, or who play on another platform, will need to unlock the aforementioned characters to be able to play as them.

    This seems like a nice deal for those who want to support the game by pre-ordering, but it oddly is only available for digital pre-orders. If you have already pre-ordered a physical copy then you will not be given early access to the five hunters and the one monster once the game has launched later this year.

    Do you think it's smart for Microsoft to offer a deal such as this, or do you think they should open up the pre-order bonuses to all versions and platforms of Evolve?

  • Rumors Stir Around New Rare AAA Game

    It's always exciting to hear what Microsoft's best development studio, Rare is up to these days. They have made classics like Banjo Kazooie and Viva Pinata, and have also thrown out dozens of other playful games suitable for the whole family.

    Rare's most recent attempts have been within the world of Kinect, and they have released a various of sports and other active games compatible with the Kinect for the Xbox 360. Unfortunately, most gamers weren't really interested in Rare when all of their effort went into these kind of games, but in a new light, Microsoft has realized that Rare deserves to be doing something a bit more exciting with their time.

    Que dozens of rumors now spreading the internet because of a small job listing Rare has posted on their website following the development shift for the studio. On the job listing, it states that Rare are looking for an animator that has "high quality animation skills that include movement in bipedal animation, quadruped and facial animation."

    The two things here that have sparked a lot of talk are the words "bipedal and quadruped." Whilst animation for a two legged character is fairly normal, "quadruped" suggests that Rare may be planning to create a big bunch of four legged characters in their next upcoming AAA game.

    Honestly, it could be anything, but it sounds as if Rare are looking for animators to create animals. Does this mean we will see another Viva Pinata game? Or maybe a brand new Banjo Kazooie? It is hard to say, but it's possible it could be either of these or something entirely different.
