  • 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.

  • 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.
