  • More Black Ops 3 Details Released, Including Supported Platforms

    black ops 3 detailsIf you didn't know already, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is coming this year, and it's looking it could completely change a lot about the previous games in the franchise.

    The latest trailer has released more details about Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, including a release date and the supported platforms that the game will run on. As you can expect, Black Ops 3 will only be available for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, so there will not be any support for the Xbox 360 or the PlayStation 3.

    Black Ops 3 will be releasing on November 6 worldwide, but players are given the chance to play it a little earlier. If you pre-order Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 you will be given access to a multiplayer beta.

    There will be a beta for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, so you'll be able to give the beta a try no matter what platform you play on. Unfortunately neither Treyarch or Activision has given a date on the multiplayer beta, but it can't be that far away considering that the full game will be released near the end of this year.

    In more news it has been revealed that the multiplayer in Black Ops 3 will be undergoing some interesting changes. Players will no longer be playing as a standard soldier. Instead they will be forced to choose between certain specialists, all of which have their own unique abilities or weapon loadouts.

  • Project Cars Will Have 110 Race Tracks on Launch Day

    project carsSlightly Mad Studios has just released a bunch of information about Project Cars in anticipation for it's launch next month. According to the development team, Project Cars will come with 30 different locations and there will be 110 different courses spread out across these locations.

    All of the locations and race tracks in Project Cars have been based on places in the real world, and from what we've seen so far Slightly Mad Studios has done a good job to replicate these locations using incredible detail.

    Whilst a lot of the race tracks are unique spots, some tracks are slight variations of the same race course. For example, the Sakito circuit in Japan has four layouts including GP, National, International and Sprint. Each of these layouts count as a separate track out of the 110 tracks that will be in the base game when Project Cars launches.

    It's surprising that Project Cars has been delayed so many times since it was first announced but this new information about the game comes as an extra confirmation that the latest release date is final.

    Project Cars is now set to release on May 8 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Slightly Mad Studios has also talked about releasing a version for the Wii U but we have not heard anything about this for quite some time now. It's likely we may hear more about the Wii U once the launch for the other consoles has come out of the gate.

  • Mortal Kombat X 1.02 Patch Fixes Bugs

    mortal kombat x 1.02For the most part Mortal Kombat X has been released without too many problems but it seems nowadays you can't have a game release without some kind of bugs or issues. Fortunately, NetherRealm Studios has been working round the clock to ensure everything is as smooth as possible.

    Recently, the 1.02 patch was applied to Mortal Kombat for the PC, Xbox One and PS4 and it brings a number of changes and bug fixes to the game.

    Perhaps the biggest noticeable changes to Mortal Kombat X in 1.02 are some tweaks to general gameplay and certain character’s move sets. Below the major game changes have been listed.

    General - Throws (regular or command grabs) will no longer sometimes connect on a grounded reacting opponent off a counter hit

    Shinnok (Impostor) - He can now control the location of a stolen Goro Stomp.

    Subzero (Grandmaster) - Combos on a grounded opponent frozen by the Ice Klone will now scale properly.

    Takeda (Ronin) - Added a new move "Quick Kall" (Down, Towards, Front Punch) which quickly returns a dropped blade without doing an attack.

    Takeda (Shirai Ryu) – He will now always teleport to the other side when doing the Air Shirai Ryu Port

    On top of the changes to gameplay, NetherRealm Studios gave out a free Klassic Sub-Zero skin to all players to say thank you for putting up with the few launch issues. The PC version also received a number of unique fixes for online lag and performance problems.

  • 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.

  • Details Revealed for Wolfenstein The Old Blood

    wolfenstein the old bloodThis week Bethesda has straight up announced a brand new prequel to Wolfenstein the New Order. The prequel will be a standalone game, as opposed to DLC content, and it has been named Wolfenstein: The Old Blood.

    As with The New Order, The Old Blood will put players in the shoes of B.J. Blazkowics as he fights his way through the game's Nazi antagonists. In the first mission, players will find themselves in Castle Wolfenstein, and they will be instructed to kill a maniacal prison warden.

    The second mission will then take place in Wilfburg, where B.J. Blazkowics will come face to face with "obsessed Nazi archaeologist" who is exhuming mysterious artifacts that threaten to unleash a dark and ancient power.

    The standalone prequel will only include the two missions listed above, so it's definitely a very short experience, so it's odd that Bethesda did not decide to offer it as part of an expansion to The New Order.

    Wolfenstein The Old Blood is set to release on May 5, 2015 as a digital download for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The game will cost $20. PlayStation 4 and PC retail copies of the game will be releasing one week after the digital launch, but there seems to be no plans to launch a retail copy for Xbox One. Do you think it's fair for Bethesda to offer a standalone expansion like this at a large portion of the cost of a full game?

  • Fable Legends Will be a Free to Play Title

    fable legends free to playIn a new announcement, Lionhead Studios have announced that Fable Legends will actually be releasing for free on both Windows 10 for PC and the Xbox One. The game will follow a free to play pricing model, allowing players to play for free, but charging for certain in-game items or features.

    This announcement comes as a bit of a surprise, as this is the first time Lionhead have mentioned the game will not have a price tag. In a similar vein to League of Legends, players will be given a free weekly rota of Heroes to play as, and each week the free Heroes will change.

    If players like a certain Hero, they can purchase them to play with indefinitely. Players will be able to use real money to purchase the Heroes, or they can accumulate in-game currency to spend on the Heroes.

    When it comes to playing the Villain, players will be given all of the Villain's mobs and traps for free, but they will only be able to use each trap and mob designed for each mission. If a mob has been designed for a mission, and you would like to use it on another mission, you will need to unlock that mob by spending real money or in-game currency on it.

    Another monetization feature includes loot crates that contain random items. These can once again be purchased by both currencies. I think by the sounds of it, Fable Legends could be very balanced in terms of pay to win potential, but we'll have to see how it plays out once it has been released.

  • State of Decay New Gen Version Planned

    state of decay new genIf you haven't had the chance to play State of Decay yet, you might want to wait just a little bit longer before playing the solo zombie survival game. It has just been announced that State of Decay will be getting a new gen remaster for the Xbox One, and Undead Labs plan to release it fairly shortly.

    The new remastered version by Undead Labs will be called State of Decay Year One Survival Edition and it will bring remastered graphics, 1080P resolution, as well as a few new gameplay features. The remastered version will also be bundled with both the Lifeline and Breakdown DLC packs that were released earlier in it's release cycle.

    A rework has been applied to some of the animations in the new remaster of State of Decay, and improvements have also been made to the environment textures, but that's just the start of the changes. Jeff Strain, founder of Undead Labs has mentioned a few more things about the new version.

    "We're taking some of the base management features from the Lifeline DLC and integrating that into the core game, and also taking some of the heroes and characters that were introduced and allowing them to be playable characters from Lifeline and Breakdown as well."

    This will mean some of the newer characters such as Alicia Hawkes, Sergeant Kilo and Private Vince will be playable in the main portion of the game, instead of just in the Lifeline DLC.

    The new version of State of Decay will be released some time in Spring this year - it will release digitally for both the Xbox One and the PC.

  • ESO Details Revealed, Including Subscription Drop

    ESO subscription dropMMO fans rejoice, the news you've been waiting to hear since the PC release of the Elder Scrolls Online is finally ready to be heard. That's right, due to a lack of interest, Zenimax have opted to drop the monthly subscription of the Elder Scrolls Online, and it will be opening the game to all players for free.

    The new version of the game has been named The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited, and whilst new players will still need to purchase the base price of the game, the monthly subscription afterwards will no longer be required. Instead, there will be optional in-game content that can be purchased as DLC content, and players can also purchase in-game currency to spend on certain cosmetic and customization options.

    I think it's great to hear that The Elder Scrolls Online has dropped the subscription model. Simply having a one-off fee for the game should be enough as it is, especially considering the game costs as much as a new console game.

    Talking about console games, The Elder Scrolls: Tamriel Unlimited will be releasing on consoles shortly as well. Unfortunately the previous launch dates of the console versions of The Elder Scrolls Online have consistently been pushed back. Whilst the PC version of the new PC ESO will release on March 17th, the console versions for the PS4 and the Xbox One will not be released till late 2014.

    Will you be picking up the ESO now that the subscription has been removed?

  • Street Fighter 5 Revealed as PS4 Exclusive

    Street Fighter 5Out of nowhere, Capcom has confirmed that Street Fighter 5 is in the works, but the most surprising bit of news from Capcom's announcement was it's decision to make Street Fighter 5 an exclusive for the PlayStation 4.

    The Street Fighter franchise has always been available on both Xbox and PlayStation, so it is odd to see Capcom suddenly move over to PlayStation 4 only. The only thing we can think of is Sony have managed to offer Capcom a payout they couldn't turn down, and as a result the game has been given PS4 exclusivity.

    Interestingly, Street Fighter 5 will also be made available for the PC, but it's console exclusivity remains on the PlayStation 4.

    A full gameplay reveal trailer for Street Fighter 5 was released by Capcom, but it has since been set to private - perhaps the development company and publisher isn't quite ready to reveal the game to the world just yet.

    Either way, we can expect to see some real gameplay of Street Fighter 5 fairly shortly, and perhaps in a year or two, we’ll also see the game land on the PlayStation 4 and the PC.

    Are you frustrated that Street Fighter 5 has been made exclusive to the PlayStation 4 and the PC, or is it something you could live with? Personally, we think this kind of deal will only fuel more third part exclusivity deals in the future, further pushing away from the boundaries of console parity.

  • 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.
