  • Batman Arkham Remastered May Be Coming

    batman arkham remasteredA survey has leaked online giving details about what could be Warner Bros. plans to release a remastered version of the Batman Arkham games. Whilst nothing is for definite at this point in time, the survey definitely suggested that Warner Bros. were certainly looking into the idea of bringing the entire collection to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

    In the survey, a number of questions are asked. One question asks respondents how likely they'd be interested in a remastered Batman collection, whilst another question asks what name respondents would prefer the game to be called. A few concept designs for the remastered versions front cover were also shared.

    In one area, it came across as if the Batman remastered collection was definitely going to happen. The information provided in the survey can be seen below, although the first sentence, stating "WB Game is recrafting the critically acclaimed and best-selling titles from Rocksteady Studios" is perhaps the most important.

    "WB Games is recrafting the critically acclaimed and best-selling titles from Rocksteady Studios, Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City, for the next-generation consoles." reads the survey summary. "Far from just up-reused visuals and textures, both games are being rebuilt from the ground with upgraded models, environments, lighting and HDR, effects and shaders, and new high quality post processing effects."

    Respondents could pick between Batman: Arkham Anthology, Batman: Absolute Arkham, Batman: Arkham Legacy, Batman: Arkham Masterpiece Collection and Batman: Arkham Remastered for the name for the game.

  • Street Fighter V Gets M Bison Reveal Trailer

    Street Fighter V M BisonM Bison has just been revealed by Capcom in a brand new reveal trailer for the character. The new trailer shows off a few other Street Fighter V characters before showing the new M Bison. Unsurprisingly, not much has changed to the character, but M Bison has had a nice re-texture to meet the higher quality graphics that Street Fighter V features.

    M Bison originally made his way into the Street Fighter franchise in Street Fighter 2 and as you can imagine, he has stuck around ever since.

    So far, we're still not very sure about the confirmed lineup for Street Fighter 5, but M Bison makes his way as the fourth confirmed character. Before M Bison, players were introduced officially to Ryu, Chun Li and Charlie.

    It's likely that we'll see a large roster of character we've already seen from Street Fighter titles in the past and if we're lucky we may see a new face or two as well. Unfortunately Capcom has chosen to reveal each character separately so it may be some time before we know the full character roster for Street Fighter 5.

    Street Fighter 5 does not yet have a definite release date but it has been planned to release some time next year. The upcoming Street Fighter game will be available exclusively on the PlayStation 4 and the PC.

    In other news, Community Effort Orlando, a host for a fighting game tournament, has confirmed that a playable demo of Street Fighter 5 will be available at the tournament, which takes place between June 26 to June 28.

  • Bloodborne Expansion is Definitely Coming

    bloodborne expansion dlcIt's been confirmed that an expansion for Bloodborne will definitely be coming in the future and From Software are already going over ideas for new content. Unlike many other games these days, Bloodborne did not come with a season pass from day one so players have been curious about the developer's DLC plans.

    Whilst there weren't any definite plans for future content in the past, Shuhei Yoshida has confirmed on Twitter that an upcoming expansion will be coming for Bloodborne. Unfortunately not many details have been shared so far, but Yoshida has mentioned that more information will be shared later this year.

    Considering that Shuhei Yoshida is Sony Computer Entertainment's World Wide Studio's president it's pretty clear that this information can be trusted and a Bloodborne expansion is definitely coming.

    It's definitely a smart move by both Sony and From Software to plan more content for Bloodborne. Even though Bloodborne is a PlayStation 4 exclusive, it has managed to pull in enough sales to rival many other new gen only titles. Bloodborne also managed to exceed Sony's original expectations for the game, which is saying a lot because Sony were originally quite ambitious about Bloodborne.

    For the time being though we'll have to make do with the current game and any minor patches that may be released periodically over time. Hopefully somebody from Sony or From Software will reveal more information about their plans for future Bloodborne content rather soon. I'm sure if you enjoy the game as much I have you'll be excited to hear any news about Bloodborne.

  • Patch 1.03 for The Witcher 3 Coming to Xbox One and PS4 soon

    patch 1.03 the witcher 3The latest 1.03 patch for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is currently undergoing the certification process for both the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4. Once everything goes ahead as planned, the update will launch for both consoles.

    Whilst patch 1.04 has already hit the PC version of The Witcher 3, patch 1.03 is yet to hit either the PS4 or the Xbox One, and the same can be said for patch 1.04. This is due to the lengthy certification process that both Sony and Microsoft use to make sure everything goes ahead smoothly with new updates for games on either console.

    The PC version of patch 1.03 had over 600 changes made to it and it's likely that the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One version of the patch will have a very similar number of changes. As you can imagine, many of the new changes will be various bug and glitch fixes, most of which may not affect gameplay at all for the majority of players.

    The biggest noticeable changes will improve overall stability when playing and when using the user interface. Cutscene performance has had a boost, and dialogue has been enhanced so that it is easier to read. Any other dialogue issues seem to have been fixed in patch 1.03 as well, including some missing translations in the user interface.

    Some major game breaking bugs should have been fixed in patch 1.03 as well. It's likely that patch 1.04 will be released alongside patch 1.03 once both updates have been certified by both Sony and Microsoft.

  • New God of War 3 Remastered Trailer Revealed

    god of war 3 remasteredA brand new trailer for the upcoming God of War 3 Remastered for the PlayStation 4 has been released and it depicts Kratos in all his HD glory. There's no doubt that God of War 3 Remastered looks like the most visually impressive game we've seen in from the IP so far. Players will be excited to hear that Sony are aiming for 1080P resolution and 60fps for God of War 3 Remastered, but the way Sony worded sounds as if a 60fps constant frame rate may not be guaranteed.

    Considering that the entire game will be getting a visual overhaul in God of War 3 Remastered, it'd be understandable to see why 60fps may not be achievable all of the time. Despite this, Sony are putting a lot of effort into the performance side of the PlayStation 4 port.

    If you plan to pre-order God of War 3 Remastered ahead of the launch of the game, Sony will offer up a few free bonuses. Unfortunately none of the bonuses will consist of in-game content because the remastered version has mostly untouched the content from the original God of War 3.

    Instead, players will be given a free dynamic theme for their PlayStation 4. The theme given out will be God of War - Fall of Olympus. If players pre-order through the PlayStation Network, the theme will be given out to those players this week instead of when the game releases.

    Players can also get a free 90 day rental for both God of War and God of War from the PlayStation Network for pre-ordering God of War 3 Remastered.

  • Far Cry 4 Complete Edition Planned

    far cry 4 complete editionThe whole DLC debacle definitely leaves a lot of room for debate, but if you're patient with buying games you can often get great deals on DLC. In fact, most publishers are now releasing "complete editions" roughly a year after the game release - these versions often cost the same price as the original game but they're also packed with all of the game's DLC.

    Ubisoft has been following this practice for a while, and their next compilation game set for release is Far Cry 4: Complete Edition.

    As expected, Far Cry 4 Complete Edition will come with the full game and all five of the DLC expansions that were released as part of the game's season pass. The new complete edition will also have all of the extra missions, weapons and areas that may have been awarded to players in the past.

    Far Cry 4 Complete Edition is set for release on June 19. So far we don't know whether we'll see a physical release or not. It's entirely possible that the Complete Edition may only be available digitally.

    Either way, Ubisoft has shared some details about the Far Cry 4 complete pack that nobody was expecting. Ubisoft has stated that they "have no plans to release it on Xbox One."

    Considering that the main Far Cry 4 game was released on Xbox One, it seems odd that Ubisoft will now only be releasing the bundle pack to PlayStation 4 and PC. We've seen a lot of exclusivity deals for the PlayStation 4 recently, but Ubisoft are rarely ever the company to make such arrangements.

  • 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.

  • Deus Ex Mankind Divided Revealed

    deus ex mankind dividedA brand new Deus Ex game planned to follow on from the story of Human Revolution has been revealed and it will be making it's way to the Xbox One, the PlayStation 4 and the PC.

    The new Deus Ex title has been named Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and it will take place in 2029, two years after the events of Human Revolution. Many of non-augmented civilians were killed in Human Revolution, leaving the divide between humans and augmented humans at an all time high.

    Factions will form in Mankind Divided, all of which will have their own agenda and attitude towards augmentation. The game will focus on Adam Jensen, the same protagonist from the previous Deus Ex games. This time round, players will need to rely even more on his augmented skills.

    Whilst not much else has been revealed about the game, a trailer was released which delved into the story of the Deus Ex universe a little. Deus Ex Human Revolution had one of the most engaging stories last generation and I hope that Mankind Divided will be just as good.

    We do not yet know when Mankind Divided will be released but it is clear that the game will arrive on the PlayStation 4, the Xbox One and the PC. If we're lucky we may see the game release at some point this year, but either way we're bound to hear a lot more about Mankind Divided in the very near future.

  • Metal Gear Solid World Rumored to be Bigger than GTA V

    metal gear solid v world sizeSo, you may have heard a few times now that the world size in Metal Gear Solid V will be large, but a new analysis of the released map photos suggests that The Phantom Pain might just have a world that is larger than that of Grand Theft Auto V.

    In the new analysis by a NeoGAF user, screenshots of the in-game map shows off the size of the playable area, compared to the whole map size. Roughly speaking, the map in the Phantom Pain looks to be around 120 to 150 times the playable size of Ground zeroes, according to the NeoGAF user.

    With this information, the user calculated that it would take roughly 3 minutes to drive from one side of the map to the other. Whilst it takes roughly double this to travel across GTA V, the map in question only shows off Africa. Afghanistan is another area in Metal Gear Solid V that has been confirmed, and should roughly be the same size of Africa.

    Obviously a lot of the world in MGSV will be open desert land, so it won't feel engaging throughout the entirety of the map like Grand Theft Auto V does, but the travel times between mission areas will certainly be interesting.

    I can't wait to see how the developers of the Phantom Pain put all of the open space in their world to use. Are you excited to see what Africa and Afghanistan are like in Metal Gear Solid V?

  • Compensation Coming for PSN Users

    psn compensationIf you were affected by the PlayStation network outage over the holiday period, you may be able to claim a bit of a reward as an apology straight from Sony themselves.

    Although the network problems over Christmas were caused by a hacker group, Sony has still responded with their apologies, and they are working to set up counter measures that will stop this sort of attack happening again in the near future.

    To top it off, the FBI have confirmed that they are actively searching for the origins of the Lizard Squad hackers, so hopefully they will get what's coming to them.

    As for the compensation, firstly all PS Plus members will receive a free five day extension to their current membership - this may not sound like a big deal as it's likely most players have already got their membership set up to recur each month. It is however a nice gesture from Sony, and the second part of the apology package will probably be a lot more appreciated.

    For the entirety of January, all PSN users, including those without a PS Plus subscription, will be given a one time discount code for any digital item within the PS Plus store. The discount code will offer 10% off, and it can be applied to your shopping cart, allowing you to potentially save 10% on more than one item by purchasing several games in one order.

    So far Sony have not revealed when the discount code will be available, but it should be fairly shortly.
