  • New Forza 5 Update Makes DLC Cars Free in Garage

    forza 5 free dlcA few changes have just gone live for the DLC car system currently in place for Forza 5, and it will have a few effects on gameplay.

    One of the biggest changes is that from now on, when a player purchases a DLC car, that car will arrive instantly in their garage, as opposed to the system beforehand that required players to buy the car both with real money as a DLC pack, and with in-game currency after purchasing the DLC.

    Turn10 creative director Dan Greenawalt gave a bit of information in this change, "As of today, players who have purchased DLC cars in Forza Motorsport 5 can add those cars to their Forza 5 garage immediately, at no additional in-game cost. And moving forward, when you buy a Car Pass, a DLC car pack, or a single DLC car, you will be granted the one-time free addition of each car to your Forza 5 garage, without needing to purchase them with in-game credits or tokens."

    "This goes for all current Forza Motorsport 5 DLC (including cars in previous DLC car packs) and it will be the case for all future Forza 5 DLC car packs."
    This will mean players will get garage access to any DLC cars that were purchased before this change. On top of the DLC system, Turn10 have added the much requested car rental options. All 200 cars that were available at launch can now be rented out.

  • Possible Leaked Drive Club Release Date Shared on Twitter

    drive club release leak

    Drive Club has been one of the few games that has really got everybody's attention, and the recent delay in development has lead a few gamers to being fidgety and impatient. However, if a new rumored leak is anything to go by, we may now know exactly when Drive Club will be released, and it isn't that far away at all.

    According to a user on PSNation, the DriveClub twitter account posted a tweet, only to have it removed seconds later. The tweet had information about the release date for Drive Club, but so far there's no proof to say what the user saw was actually real, or just a forged image.

    The tweet in question read 'Mark your calendars 9.4.14' #DRIVECLUB,' which would translate to either September 4th, 2014, or April 9th, 2014. Seeing as the Drive Club developers are from Europe, it may make more sense to be in the European format, which would mean April 9th, 2014.

    It could be possible that this image was the real deal, as this kind of stuff does happen every now and again. This strange twitter 'slip up' is a bit odd though, especially seeing as we haven't heard anything else about the release of Drive Club in a while. Either way, if the release is set for April, we'll most likely hear more about it very soon. Hopefully by the time the game is released, it will be smooth, polished and ready for playing. Drive Club has had a hype train behind it for a few months now, so a few errors or gameplay issues could cause the train to derail.

  • 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.

  • PlanetSide 2 Should make it to PS4 in first half of 2014

    PlanetSide 2 PS4 Release

    PlanetSide 2 is an open world futuristic military shooter that banks on player progression over killstreaks and player skill. It’s a pretty fun team-based game that gets three factions constantly fighting over land, and the greatest thing about it is that it's completely free to play.

    The game originally launched on PC, but after making deals with Sony, plans were made to release the game onto the PlayStation 4. However, since their official confirmation of the game being made available for the PS4 some time in the future, we haven't really heard much about the game.

    Recently though, it has been announced that PlanetSide 2 will be making it's way to PlayStation 4 this year, and it should be playable by the public before the end of the first half of 2014, if not a few months beforehand.

    I personally haven't had much time inside the world of PlanetSide 2, but from hearing other's opinions and reviews, it definitely looks like a very interesting game you could bury yourself into, although it's a lot more fun when you get involved with another squad in the game, whether they are your friends in real life, or other players you've met on the battlefield.

    Like any F2p title, there are of course microtransactions, but you can earn in-game currency to purchase most of the items, apart from cosmetic gear, it just takes considerably longer to buy new weapons, gear, vehicles and attachments.

  • Tomb Raider Definitive Edition Available Early

    Tomb Raider Definitive Edition Release

    So despite being originally planned for a release this Tuesday in North America, and this Friday in Europe, it seems a lot of gamers have managed to get their hands on Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition a couple of days early.

    Square Enix has not said anything about a possible early release date, but a lot of visitors to GameStop's stores across the globe have confirmed that they have managed to pick up Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, despite it the confirmed release date still being days away.

    Square Enix's social media profiles have suggested that they still planned for the January 28th release date for Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, so it sounds as if GameStop have made a bit of a mess up, or perhaps Square Enix had a deal in place that allowed them to sell the game earlier than the intended release date.

    Either way, if you have a GameStop near you, and you're looking into buying Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, you may want to stop by to see if there are any copies available for purchase in-store.

    The original Tomb Raider game released last year managed to gain a huge amount of success both critically and sales-wise, so it's no wonder that Square Enix have decided to port the game over to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 so quickly.

    Definitive Edition is said to have much more refined graphics, and both consoles will reportedly run the game between an average of 40 to 60FPS.

  • Next Hitman Game Will Go Back to it's Roots

    Hitman Next Gen

    Hitman will be making a return to the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4, and IO Interactive have unveiled some of their plans for the upcoming Hitman title.

    IO Interactive has stated that players will see "a globetrotting Agent 47 at the prime of his career - the apex predator stalking his prey across the world, with the support of his long-term handler Diana Burnwood and the whole of the ICA."

    IO seems to be focusing majorly on the reasons that made Hitman stand apart from it's competitors, and that of course comes down to the wide range of weapons that can be used to take out targets. Whether it's a playing card or the shoe off of your victim's feet, it's usually possible on Hitman, and IO are banking on this concept for the success of the next Hitman.

    IO are hoping to go back to their roots and make the game feel more like the original than 2012's title.

    "We've adopted an open, non-linear level design approach to the game, ensuring the game will play out across huge, checkpoint-free, sandbox levels. Our aim is to create living, breathing and believable levels which will allow gamers to play around with the AI to create those unique moments every fan of the Hitman franchise loves."

    I expect the next Hitman will be released some time in 2015, but no details have been given on a release window, yet.

  • The Last of Us Could Get a PS4 Port

    The Last of Us has been one of the many PlayStation exclusive titles that truly rocked it last year, however, with it being on the end of a generation, it left some gamers stuck between purchasing the game and saving for a new PS4 game upon the console's release later on in the year.

    Last of Us PS4 PortBecause of this, it's been pretty commonplace to hear players asking for a PlayStation 4 port for the Last of Us, and Naughty Dog may actually be considering it.

    It's not a definite yes at this point, but it's certainly not a definite no when it comes to a PS4 port for the Last of Us, and instead we're greeted with a "We'll see what the future brings" from community strategist Eric Monacelli.

    What this suggests is that Naughty Dog aren't quite sure what the demand would be for a PS4 port, and they are probably happy working on other projects until the answer to that question is more clear.

    If you'd love to see a PlayStation 4 port for the Last of Us, your best bet is to try and get out there to get your name heard, let Naughty Dog know that it is something that we all want.

    Personally I think the launch window title selection for both the PS4 and the Xbox One has been a little weak, so anything to add to our play experience would certainly be worth it at this point in time.

     

  • Sony Reports that Current Demand for PS4 Won't Be Met Till February

    Well if you're one of the lucky ones to have a PS4 then you don't have to worry. But those who have yet been able to grab one, you might still have to wait a bit. Sony is having the sale of their lives and it seems regardless of their plans of constantly restocking retailers, the demand is far from being met.

    During an interview with the Gardian, SCE CEO Andrew House said that Sony doesn't expect that they will be able to fulfill demands until even February. He said, "So I'd characterise it as being somewhat supply-challenged for the remainder of the calendar year, but hopefully we’ll be able to satisfy that pent-up demand as we get out to January and February."

    As of now, despite the unavailability, Sony expects the PS4 to outsell the PS3 within the firs fiscal year. Since its launch in November 2006 till March 2007, the PS3 sold a total of 3.5 million units. Standing by their initial assessment, they are expecting that the PS4 will sell 5 million units during the same 5 month time period.

    Currently they are anticipating their sales to hit 3 million by the end of 2013, and last we heard they sold 2.1 million units worldwide. The PS4 is currently available in 48 countries and will launch in their strongest market, Japan, in February. So what do you guys think, will they be able to reach the 5 million mark by March?138

  • Xbox One Indie Games Arriving From Early Next Year

    Last August Microsoft revealed their indie development program for the Xbox One, and now they the first batch of games are scheduled to release from the early next year. ID@Xbox director Chris Charla told Edge that Microsoft has 32 studios currently working on indie titles for the Xbox One. Charla said, "I think it will be early in the New Year, in the first three months. I would say closer to the third month."

    Xbox-One_2584436bCharla added that many of the games have been in development for months, "Some developers started developing for Xbox One, others already had games in development and are working on Xbox One versions. I would say they're at all stages of development, honestly. Other ID@Xbox developers however are waiting to gain access to the development tools. Microsoft is also planning on expanding the program and attempting to attract players to create to their own games using Project Spark.

    Although PlayStation 4 has definitely had the head start, Xbox One is slowly gaining momentum. Several developers have already expressed their renewed interest towards the Xbox One in interviews with the Verge. The ID@Xbox program might also lead to future apps for the Xbox One as there may be future plans to attract app developers. Definitely some great news for Xbox One owners as the original programming launch would them access to pretty unique stuff in the future.

  • First Assassins Creed IV DLC Pack Released

    First AC4 DLC

    Whilst all of the downloadable content for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag was announced at it’s launch by Ubisoft, full details and pricing outside of the season pass was not given.

    This week, Ubisoft has released the first DLC pack for Assassin’s Creed IV. The first pack is the previously announced character pack that includes three new characters that will be playable in the game’s multiplayer.

    The first character is Blackbeard, one of the main characters in the story campaign. The second character is the Orchid, a deadly Assassin that grew up in China, and the third character is the Jaguar, an Aztec warrior from Mexico.

    I could imagine each three characters would have a different playstyle, with Blackbeard being the most in your face, strength based character, the Orchid being the weaker, but more subtle assassin character, and the Jaguar being a mixture of the two.

    The DLC pack is called Blackbeard's Wrath and will also add new achievements and trophies to the game. The new content pack is available on Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and the PC for $2.99. Personally I think a few extra bucks ain’t bad for a few extra characters, but I suppose the argument that they should have been in the game for free from day one is still valid.

    On top of this, the second DLC pack will be released on December 17th, and will include over four hours of new single player content, and nine new missions that focus on Adewale, a close friend to Edward Kenway in AC4.
