  • 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.

  • Outlast 2 Confirmed

    Outlast 2If you're a fan of the recent surge of new horror games that have been released over the last couple of years then you will be excited to hear what we have to say today. It has been confirmed by Red Barrels that they have started development on Outlast 2.

    The first Outlast game managed to be very successful - first starting as a small indie game available through Steam's greenlight system, it came on to becoming a full Steam game and then released for consoles later in the year.

    The next Outlast game will be made for consoles and PC on day one, and it will come with a whole set of new scares. Whilst Outlast 2 will be set in the same universe as the first game, Outlast 2 will be based around a new survival horror story.

    Red Barrels have not given much more information about Outlast 2, besides from the fact that they are working on a sequel to the first game, because they feel like they, "had at least another horror game in us."

    "The game will be a survival horror experience and it will take place in the same universe as Outlast, but it will have different characters and a different setting. We might go back to Mount Massive Asylum one day, but for now we have new ideas and themes we'd like to explore and we think we're cooking up something special."

    Are you excited to hear about the new Outlast game?

  • Evolve Gets Alpha Plans for Halloween

    evolve alphaEvolve, the upcoming 4v1 alien shooter title for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One has recently been confirmed to be holding a set of "big alpha" events over the days leading up to Halloween.

    The alpha phase will start at the end of this month, and Xbox One players will be able to get into game on the 30th of October, 24 hours before both PlayStation 4 players and PC players.

    Players who own a pre-order of Evolve will be given instant access to the big alpha phase on either October 30th or October 31st depending on the platform that player owns, however there will be chances for those that have signed up to the alpha to get access to it regardless of whether they purchased the game or not.

    It would make sense that the amount of alpha slots for those who have not pre-ordered is limited, however we do not know how limited the slots will be at this time.

    Once the alpha phase for Evolve starts, it will continue over the Halloween weekend and into November, before ending on the 2nd of next month.

    If Evolve has taken your interest since it's announcement, I would certainly suggest giving it a try at the end of the month, as I'm sure the alpha stage will give you a good idea of what the game will be like. I personally can not wait to see how Evolve will play out.

  • GTA V Officially Announced for PS4, Xbox One and PC

    GTA v PS4After selling a ridiculous amount of copies on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, it only seemed to make sense for Rockstar to port their latest Grand Theft Auto game over to the new generation of consoles, however, we haven't really heard anything official from Rockstar about such a thing happening since it's first release on to last gen consoles.

    That all changed last night though; Rockstar finally decided to speak and reveal that Grand Theft Auto V is now planned for a release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The new next gen version of Grand Theft Auto V will be released this Fall, and a few changes will be made to the game to take advantage of the new hardware capabilities within both the Xbox One and the PS4.

    Perhaps the biggest notable change for the new version of Grand Theft Auto V will be the across-the-board graphical improvements that will add new lighting effects, increase draw distance, increase texture detail and bring enhanced resolution to the game.

    GTA V on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One will also have denser traffic, increased wildlife, upgraded weather and damage effects, as well as a wide array of other new details. Pre-orders for GTA V on PS4, Xbox One and PC start today. So far, details on the pricing for the next-gen version of Grand Theft Auto V are not clear, but it's likely the game will sell for full price.

  • Guild Banks Disabled In ESO to Cut Down on Duping

    eso duping glitchLast Friday Zenimax Online chose to cut off access to guild banks temporarily, most likely in an attempt to stop players from duplicating gear and equipment via various bank exploits.

    Whilst Zenimax didn't mention exactly why they disabled guild banking, it was disabled shortly after a Reddit post pointed out an exploit that allowed players to potentially get infinite gear and currency.

    Zenimax has since banned thousands of cheaters according to community forum members, with most of the bans being related to in-game exploits and cheats. It sounds like it's been a rocky start for Zenimax and Elder Scrolls Online, but things will most likely get smoothed out in the future.

    If you're a little disappointed that the console release of the Elder Scrolls Online has been pushed back past the PC release, hopefully this news should reassure you a little. MMOs are known for having troubles at their launch, and this is usually because the games are filled with thousands of hours of content, and it's hard for most bugs to found by in-house game testing, and even through various beta tests, some bugs still remain hidden until the floodgates open up and the game releases fully.

    The Elder Scrolls Online was released on PC on April 4th, and will be made available on both PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One some time in June. Hopefully by that time all of the game breaking issues will have been resolved.

  • Puzzle Thriller by Daylight Studios Planned for PS4 and PC

    Daylight Thriller Game

    The next game by creator of the FPS title Blacklight Retribution is called Daylight, and it has been described to be a procedurally generated thriller with each playthrough containing new levels, thrills and puzzles to complete.

    Details on the title are still pretty low key, but more information has come in this week about the game. Firstly, 1 minute's worth of gameplay content has been released in an IGN preview, and the developer gives a bit of information about the game as the gameplay is shown.

    Secondly, the game has been confirmed for a set release in April, however details on whether it will be free or not have not yet been confirmed. Despite their publisher being a F2P publisher, I think Daylight will be a game developed on their own back, thanks to the support Blacklight Retribution has managed to give them, and for this reason I expect the game will have a price tag on it.

    It looks strictly like a single player game, and I'm not sure how successful the title will be. It certainly sounds like it has a lot of replay value, but I'm wondering what kind of gameplay will draw in the crowds upon the launch of the game.

    I expect we'll find a bit more out about Daylight later on in the year, closer to it's planned launch in April, from which point the game will be available on both PC and PlayStation 4.

  • Titanfall Went into Open Beta on Valentine's Day

    titanfall open beta

    Titanfall was originally planned to enter closed Beta on Valentine's day, which players could sign up to for PC or Xbox One beforehand to get a chance to play. Although the NDA was lifted for this event, it was still closed Beta for the first two days, and there was a fair amount of players who had yet to play, both on PC and the Xbox One.

    However, since the event went pretty smoothly, Respawn wanted to stress test the servers as much as possible to make the launch of the title go by as perfectly as they can. To do this, Respawn decided to open up the Beta for full open access, meaning that all players could go into the game and access it, both on PC and Xbox One.

    Vince Zampella seemed pretty happy to "break" the game, so it'll be interesting to see how the Beta plays out for the next few days.

    The Titanfall Beta will remain open till the 19th February. After that point, players will have to wait for the full release later in March.

    I managed to get my hands on Titanfall, and I feel like it's definitely got enough new content in it to make it feel like a fresh new shooter, but it doesn't take away too much from the modern day FPS to make it feel too unfamiliar for the average casual player. The Beta was limited for both maps and weapons, but this is likely to change on the full release.

  • Far Cry Original Remake Released

    Far Cry Classic

    Over the last half decade, it's become quite a popular thing for developers to make remakes of their old games. I'm not just talking about new re-imagined versions of games, either, I'm talking literal ports of ancient titles with nothing new added to it other than an HD skin, in most cases.

    Personally, I always feel the idea behind playing an old game is for the nostalgia value, and HD remakes always ruin that for me a little, however if you're a fan of HD remakes, you may want to keep get your wallet out because the original Far Cry game is about to join the likes of Goldeneye, Halo: Combat Evolved, and Fable: The Lost Chapters, among others.

    A Far Cry Classic remake has been rumored for a while now, and it has finally been released to the public, however details are still a bit blurry. Ubisoft seemed to have messed up a little with the promotion of the project, and despite development time being put in the remake to add revamped cutscenes, enhanced graphics and a new interface, it's unclear whether Far Cry Classic will ever actually make it to North America in the same manner as other regions.

    If you're living in Europe, you'll be able to pick up 'Far Cry Wild Expeditions' which comes packed with all of the Far Cry games ever released, as well as Far Cry Classic for PS3, Xbox 360 or PC.

    If you live in North America, the same bundle is available, but Far Cry Classic has been excluded - the bundle for North America has also been renamed to the 'Far Cry Compilation' and is available for $39.99

    Despite this strange bundle mishap, both regions can grab a digital copy of Far Cry Classic for just $11.99 from Xbox LIVE or the PlayStation Network.

  • World Rally Championship 4 Announced for Current Gen Consoles


    Despite being moved over to a new publisher, the developers of the World Rally Championship series don't expect to stop developing any time soon. In fact, Bigben, the new publisher for the series, has recently revealed that World Rally Championship 4 will be making it's way to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and PS Vita this October.

    World Rally Championship will include all of the rallies included in this years FIA World Rally Championship calendar, on top of all the leading teams and drivers.

    The 4th game in the series will be improved upon in many other ways as well, including a brand new high graphical redesign with bran new real life in-game sounds for the vehicles and the environments they drive on.

    World Rally Championship 4 will also include a brand new career mode that will allow the player to play as a rally driver in the 2013 championship, and according to Bigben, "Realism and immersion are two of the most important pillars of the development, with impressive 3D environments and an HDR system that will grant the best in-game performance."

    The game will also include a multiplayer online mode that will allow players to compete against each other. No mention has been made about a next-gen release so it looks like WRC4 will be for this generation only.
