  • Witcher 3 1.08 Patch Incoming

    witcher 3 1.08

    The Witcher 3 will be getting another large patch in the near future and it will include a number of gameplay changes. The latest upcoming update is patch 1.08 and CD Projekt Red has talked a little bit about what the patch will consist of.

    Whilst CD Projekt Red hasn't yet given a release date, the developer has mentioned that the update is "coming soon." Whilst all platforms are getting the same treatment in terms of new patches, the newest updates often make their way to PC first, and are then released on console after they go through an approval process.

    Perhaps the most exciting change in patch 1.08 is the inclusion of "preparatory changes" for the New Game Plus mode. Whilst New Game Plus won't be added in 1.08, CD Projekt Red are leading up to releasing it.

    Other than various fixes and tweaks, the mean changes are within the gameplay section of the patch notes and they can be read below.


    • Fixes a rare issue where items would disappear from the stash.
    • Fixes a very rare issue which would cause Geralt to get stuck when trying to run.
    • The interaction pop-up will no longer appear on lootable objects that are empty.
    • Fixes an occasional glitch in one of the dwarf combat animations.
    • Heads chopped off during finishers will no longer disappear.
    • Players can perform a roll just before landing to significantly reduce the damage caused by falling.
    • We've added a tutorial pop-up window explaining this to make it clearer.
    • In patch 1.07, the level requirements for certain items were scaled up, leaving some players stuck with only unusable gear. With patch 1.08, we are introducing the Wolven Hour potion. This potion will be available in everyone's inventory once they install the patch. It will reduce level requirements on all gear for a period of one hour. This will give players time to level up or find alternative equipment using the gear that was available to them in patch 1.05 but became unusable after patch 1.07. After one hour, the potion's effects will cease and the requirements for all gear will revert to their original, pre-potion values.
    • Fixes an issue where players were unable to compare their items with ones sold by merchants.
  • More The Witcher 3 Free DLC Revealed

    the witcher 3 dlc

    The next free The Witcher 3 DLC has been revealed and unlike most of the previously released content, this new DLC will feature an extra quest that adds extra playtime to the game. Whilst CD Projekt Red usually release two DLC items per week, there will only be one DLC item this week.

    The DLC in question is a side quest called Where the Cat and Wolf Play... and it is the penultimate free DLC available to all The Witcher 3 players. Next week we will see the last DLC item from CD Projekt Red before they start to work on full blown expansions, so let's hope we get something special to go out with a bang.


    If we don't get anything particularly special next week, we do still have the side quest this week to look forward to. CD Projekt Red has described the side quest a little, explaining that players will be able to explore an abandoned village as they try to understand the village's history.

    Players will be able to find a new witcher contract in Oreton village once the DLC has been released. The description below is what CD Projekt Red has provided their fans.

    "Explore a forgotten village and discover its terrifying secret. Find out who or what slaughtered its inhabitants and use all your witcher skills to confront this mysterious force."

    Are you looking forward to checking out the latest DLC quest for The Witcher 3? I can imagine it will be just as decent as the other DLC side quests that have been added in the past.

  • Evolve is Getting a Second Season Pass


    If the original huge pocket of DLC for Evolve wasn't enough for you, then you should get yourself prepared for more because Turtlerock has just announced yet another season pass for the game. Yes, that's right, Evolve will be getting another wave of DLC and there's nothing you can do about it.

    The DLC in question will be featured in the Evolve Hunting Pass 2 and it will include four new hunters, one new monster and some exclusive skins only available in the season pass. Any new maps released during this time will be available for all players, just like previous content, and these maps will be available for free.

    The first piece of DLC has already been listed - it will be a new Assault class hunter named Lennox and she'll be the first hunter to ever feature a melee attack. She'll come with a special mechanized suit that is equipped with a Plasma Lance.

    Whilst Turtlerock has revealed the news about the DLC, Take-Two, Turtlerock's publisher seem to have just as much to do with it as Turtlerock does.

    "As you know, Evolve is very multiplayer-focused, and that's worked for people--we've had something like 27 million game sessions played, And we've sold-in over 2.5 million units. We're really happy with where it's going. It isn't 10 million units...yet. But it is an important franchise for us."

    It seems like a weird choice, but let's just hope Evolve 2 isn't right around the corner and maybe the second season pass won't be so bad.

  • Mass Effect Andromeda Gets Official Trailer

    mass effect andromeda

    BioWare has finally dropped the ball on their latest Mass Effect game with an announcement trailer and a new blog post. The new game has been introduced as Mass Effect: Andromeda and it will be coming to consoles and PC holiday season next year.

    "When we wrapped up the original Mass Effect trilogy with Mass Effect 3: Citadel in early 2013, planning and design on Mass Effect: Andromeda was already well underway. We knew we wanted to start with a foundation composed of the best parts of any Mass Effect game: exciting new worlds to discover, great characters, and intense action. At the same time, we clearly wanted to expand the definition of what you should expect from a Mass Effect game."

    Whilst previous rumors suggested that the upcoming Mass Effect game could have been a completely different experience, it's clear what BioWare truly meant by that. The same mechanics and features that made the original Mass Effect trilogy so popular are clearly here to stay, but the story in Mass Effect Andromeda will take new turns in the huge Mass Effect universe.

    "While we aren't ready to go into too many details just yet, as you saw in the trailer and can tell by the name, this game is very much a new adventure, taking place far away from and long after the events of the original trilogy. You will play a human, male or female, though that's actually not the character you saw in the trailer (more on that later). You'll be exploring an all-new galaxy, Andromeda, and piloting the new and improved Mako you saw. And through it all, you will have a new team of adventurers to work with, learn from, fight alongside of, and fall in love with."

  • New Payday 2 DLC Pokes Fun at Battlefield

    payday 2 dlcPayday 2 developers StarBreeze have just released a new DLC pack that is currently only available on the Steam PC store. The new DLC pack includes new guns, melee weapons masks and gun mods for just $4.99.

    The new Payday 2 DLC has been dubbed the Gage Assault Pack, and it's promotional art, as you can see above, uncoincidentally resembles the splash art from Battlefield 4. It's clear that Payday 2 has been designed to be a lighthearted game with a humorous approach to gameplay, so this fun-poking at Battlefield from StarBreeze is pretty funny.

    Whilst the $4.99 Gaga Assault Pack is currently only available for PC via Steam, it's expected that the DLC pack will eventually be released for other platforms as well, including the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360.

    A more-in depth look at the Gage Assault Pack reveals that there will be a total of four new guns, four melee weapons, four masks, 28 gun mods, new mask materials and patterns, and a total of 10 new achievements. Unfortunately the new pack does not add any additional heists or extra gameplay content.

    Like previous Payday 2 DLC, players can still join up with one another regardless of what DLC each player has. In fact, the original Gage Weapon Pack for Payday 2 added grenade boxes to the game, and players without the DLC could use grenades when partnered up with a player who owns the DLC.

    We'll let you know if we hear anything about a PS3 or Xbox 360 release for the Gage Assault Pack.

  • New Silent Hill by Hideo Kojima and Guillermo Del Toro In the Works

    new silent hillsHere's something to get excited about: it has been revealed that Hideo Kojima and Guillermo Del Toro are teaming up to create a brand new Silent Hill game. With Del Toro's great storytelling, and Kojima's amazing ability to translate a story into a playable experience, I personally think we can expect to see something absolutely wonderful from the pair.

    Despite the new revelations about the Silent Hill game, Kojima has been teasing the game on twitter and other streams for a few months. He also mentioned that he'd love to create a game including 3D captures of both Ryan Gosling and Norman Reedus.

    Low and behold, Norman Reedus will be making an appearance in the new Silent Hill game, and although an appearance by Ryan Gosling is pretty unlikely, it's still quite exciting to see the star from The Walking Dead stepping into the world of video games.

    If you're interested to learn more, you can download an interactive trailer for Silent Hills, the new Silent Hill game, from the PlayStation store.

    Details on release date and supported platforms are currently unclear, although it's pretty obvious at this point that the PlayStation 4 will be a platform that Silent Hills will be available on. We'll make sure to keep you updated as more information about the new Silent Hills game is revealed. Hopefully we can expect to hear something a bit more substantial about the game shortly.

  • Civilization Beyond Earth Planned for October Release Date

    civilization beyond earth release2K Games has finally announced the release date for the next Civilization game. Civilization: Beyond Earth will be available for players to purchase on October 24th this year.

    Beyond Earth will take the core gameplay of Civilization 5 and breathe new air into it by offering new experiences, and most importantly, the ability to send your civilization to space, which is a first for the franchise.

    So far, Civilization: Beyond Earth has been set for an exclusive PC launch, and details for a console release have not yet been given. However, if you're still interested, you'll be able to purchase Beyond Earth for $50.

    If you decide to pre-order Civilization: Beyond Earth, you'll also receive a fairly decent pre-order bonus in the name of a new map pack. The map pack has been named the Exoplanet pack and it comes with six different maps.

    So far it is unclear whether the Exoplanet map pack will be exclusive for early adopters, or whether it will be made available after the release date of Civilization: Beyond Earth as a DLC pack.

    The Exoplanet pack will come with the following maps; Kepler 186f, a forest-based planet similar to Earth, Rigil Khantoris Bb, a continental based planet, Tau Ceti d, a planet filled with sea and expensive resources, Mu Area f, a hot desert planet, 82 Eridani e, a planet with limited water, and Eta Vulpeculae b, a planet filled with 'mysterious terrain.'

  • 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.

  • Titanfall Sequel Could be Cross-Platform

    titanfall ps4

    Titanfall has only just been released, and we're already talking about the sequel. However, we have good reason to. Titanfall was never originally planned to be a Microsoft exclusive, however it seems that Respawn decided to partner with Microsoft after being sent the offer to, most likely for extra revenue reasons.

    It's probable that the choice was on EA's hands, but even though Titanfall has been confirmed as an Xbox and PC exclusive, the rights to Titanfall have not been sold to Microsoft, which means it's completely possible that the Titanfall sequel could be cross-platform.

    Vince Zampella stated on Twitter that Respawn have not sold the rights to Titanfall to Microsoft, and although there hasn't been any confirmation, many Respawn developers have hinted that a Titanfall sequel for all consoles could be very possible.

    Titanfall 2 will most likely be made, and EA seem to be very confident that the title could do extremely well as a franchise, but EA would be stupid to leave out the potential of the PS4, too. For this reason, I think it's very likely that Titanfall 2 will be made available for the PlayStation 4, as well as the Xbox One and PC. Of course, it's hard to guarantee that at this point, but it would make perfect sense if it did happen.

    When that will happen is a different story, though. EA seem to be keen on focusing on Medal of Honor and Battlefield, still, so it may be a three year development cycle for future Titanfall games.

  • Titanfall Leaks Reveal Generations Mode

    Titanfall Prestige Mode

    Somehow, it looks as if pretty much all information about Titanfall has been let out into the wild, and through all of these leaks, we can learn a bunch of new information about the upcoming Microsoft exclusive first person shooter.

    The most interesting leak that's been picked up after the maps leak is something that pertains to the information of a prestige system similar to the ones found in Call of Duty games.

    According to the leaker, the prestige system in Titanfall will be called Generations, and when a player decides to reset their rank to Generation 2, they'll lose all of their unlocked perks, and they will start back at level 1.

    The bonuses of Generation 2 is that players will receive 110% XP at all times, and a unique badge to show off in-game. All burn card earnt in Generation 1 will be kept, and no details have been given on whether there will be any more Generations, and what bonuses players may receive for prestiging more than once.

    It has also been revealed by the same leaker that there will be a new game mode called Pilot Hunter. In this game mode, players will only be awarded points for killing enemy pilots; the real players in the game. This will mean killing titans and AI will not award players points, focusing the game on traditional FPS player combat.

    Finally, the leaker suggest that there will be 9 campaign levels that players will be able to play online. These 9 levels will be played out as Attrition and Hardpoint modes, and players will be able to decide whether they want to play as the IMC or the Militia before playing.
