  • New Updates Made to Keep Battlefield 4 Going Strong

    battlefield 4 2015Even though Battlefield Hardline is just around the corner, Dice do not want players to feel the need to jump ship every time there is a new Battlefield game at your local Gamestop. In fact, new details reveal Dice's plan to keep Battlefield 4 going strong throughout 2015, and perhaps even further than that.

    Dice already announced that additional content was planned for Battlefield 4 passed the pre-planned DLC packs, and this week we've received more information about what this new content will include.

    The most expensive thing to come out of the new update is that Battlefield 4 players will be treated to two new expansions, hopefully planned for this year. To make things better, most, if not all of the new content pushed out this year should be available for no charge, even for those that have not spent a penny past the original cost of the game.

    Part of the reason why the new content may be free might come down to a new initiative that Dice will be opening up to their community soon. Using the community test environment, Dice will work alongside players to create, edit and fine tune a Battlefield 4 map that will be completely community-driven.

    The first new update for 2015 will launch in March, with a few changes to player collision and the squad obliteration mode. It sounds as if EA's tight grip on Battlefield 4 may now have died out, and that's giving Dice a big chance to show the world they still care about their community. I can't wait to see what comes out of 2015.

  • "No One is Gonna be Disappointed" with Forza 6, Coming this Holiday Season

    forza 6 release"No one is gonna be disappointed" is the exact words you’d expect to hear from a marketing manager, and it's exactly what XBOX EMEA social marketing manager Graeme Boyd said in a recent podcast over at Rectify Gaming in reference to Forza Motorsport 6. However, I think we do have enough reason to believe him.

    Whist Boyd wasn't kind enough to give up a release date for Forza 6, he did mention that "There will be lots of Forza news to come, and Turn 10 in particular is good at communicating with the community when they have stuff to talk about."

    Hopefully this means that leading up to the release of Forza 6, we'll see a lot of great content, including gameplay reveals, juicy high-res screenshots and more for us to feast our eyes upon. Even though Boyd did not mention a planned release date, in another podcast, Aaron Greenberg did list Forza among a variety of games that will be making it's way to the Xbox One this holiday season.

    It's certainly true that Xbox has a great lineup planned this year, and I absolutely cannot wait for some of the game expos, such as E3 to kick off so that we can get a great first hands look into what is to come from Xbox, and in particular, Xbox One this year.

    Forza Motorsport 5 was great. but I think Forza 6 will be better by a wide margin. Turn 10 have had a lot of spare time to work on the title since the launch of the Xbox One.

  • Another Hint That Titanfall 2 Will be on PS4

    titanfall 2 on ps4Titanfall originally released on the Xbox One, Xbox 360 and the PC, making it an exclusive for Microsoft platforms. Whilst it wasn't confirmed, at the time of the release, many were assuming that Titanfall would lose it's exclusivity by the time the second title was released.

    Let's be honest, Titanfall 2 probably is coming, and Respawn Entertainment are going to do all they can to keep it from dying out before the franchise has even had a chance to flourish. One way for Respawn to accomplish this is to reach out for a multi-platform release, including the PlayStation 4.

    So far, nobody at Respawn has confirmed in words that Titanfall 2 will be on PS4, but a new comment by EA CFO Blake Jorgensen kind of suggests that it won't just be the Xbox that will be getting the Respawn treatment in the new future.

    Jorgensen stated - "Last year it was on the Xbox only; in the future, we haven't yet announced, but we'll probably have another Titanfall game. It will probably be a bigger footprint than just a single platform. I think that's a huge positive for us."

    If there is a more obvious way of saying Titanfall 2 would be coming to PlayStation 4 without actually saying it, I'd be excited to hear, because as far as we're concerned it looks very likely that a Titanfall sequel will be coming to multiple platforms instead of just the Xbox One and PC.

  • February Games with Gold Deals Announced

    Games with Gold DealsIt's February already, and that means it's time for yet another lineup for the Games with Gold promotion. This month, we have three new games available for free, two of which are available right now. The third game is an Xbox 360 title and will be available half way through the month, and will swap out with the other Xbox 360 game currently available.

    The first game for the start of the month is an arcade title for Xbox 360, named Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. This game features pretty story driven puzzle platformer experience, and whilst it is just an arcade game, it certainly offers a very thorough experience for players.

    Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons usually goes for $14.99, and it will be free for Gold members till February 15th.

    A day after, Sniper Elite V2, which usually retails for $29.99 will then be put up for free for Xbox 360 Gold players. In Sniper Elite V2, players are encouraged to use stealth and tactics to take out enemies, instead of a face first, guns blazing approach that many shooters tout today.

    Sniper Elite V2 is also a third person title, so it should definitely offer a new experience to those used to playing Battlefield or Call of Duty.

    Finally, Xbox One players will be able to treat themselves to a free game all the way through the entirety of February as part of the Games with Gold deal.

    The free Xbox One game is called #IDARB, and usually retails for $14.99. #IDARB is a 8-bit pixel themed jumping jetpack arcade game for up to eight players.

  • Sniper 3 Ultimate Edition Available for Pre-order

    sniper 3 ultimate editionIf you're a fan of the Sniper franchise, you may want to look into picking up the Sniper 3 Ultimate Edition. The extended collector's edition of the game will include various extra digital features that are not available with the base game.

    Unfortunately, there will not be any additional physical content for the Ultimate Edition of Sniper 3, so in a sense, purchasing the Ultimate Edition serves as buying the season pass for the game.

    Inside of the Ultimate Edition, players will receive a 3 part 'Save Churchill' DLC. On top of the DLC, six different weapons packs will be included. The weapons packs available in the Sniper 3 Ultimate Edition have been listed below.

    Hunter Weapons Pack
    Camouflage Weapons Pack
    Patriot Weapons Pack
    Sniper Rifles Weapons Pack
    Axis Weapons Pack
    Eastern Front Weapons Pack

    Additionally to the above content, the Ultimate pack will allow players to access a few new multiplayer modes, including The Shooting Range for single player, the Twilight Strike Overwatch Mission for co-op play, and Capture the Flag for multiplayer.

    Finally, the Ultimate Edition will receive new multiplayer maps, all six of which have been listed.

    Night Watch
    Outpost Canyon
    Plantation
    Lost Valley
    Airstrip
    Fracture

    I find it a little odd that some of this content hasn't been included in the base game, and whilst it's nice to have an easy-access package to all of the Sniper 3 DLC, it's a shame that modes like capture the flag or the Twilight Strike Overwatch mission aren't already available for free.

  • New Master Chief Collection Patch Releasing Soon

    Master Chief Collection PatchA new patch was planned to roll out for the Master Chief Collection last week but it has since been delayed. The patch had been mentioned to include some fixes to matchmaking whilst adding some general tweaks to multiplayer, campaigns and interfaces.

    Whilst 343 Industries failed to mention why the patch was delayed, they have since confirmed that the release of the patch has been pushed back till later this January. According to 343, the patch should be up and ready to install within the "next few days."

    It's a shame that after all this time, the Master chief Collection is still not working 100% as planned, but 343 are still working on it.

    The patch notes for the upcoming patch rolling out later this week can be read below.

    Matchmaking:
    Improved matchmaking search success rates.
    Made an update to reduce instances of "Awaiting Privileges" matchmaking errors.
    Made an update to ensure player counts more reliably match the expected numbers for each playlist.
    Fixed an issue where player would sometimes appear to be searching in an incorrect "FIND GAME" screen.
    Added countdown sound effect to the voting timer

    General multiplayer:
    Made several improvements to party joining through the in-game Roster.
    Made an update to ensure that the mute icon is visible while in Matchmaking.
    Fixed an issue in Halo 4 where players could equip the same weapon as their primary and secondary weapons.

  • January Xbox Games with Gold Go Live

    january games with goldMajor Nelson has just posted up on his blog to announce the return of the Xbox Live Games with Gold deal for the first time this year, and admittedly Xbox players will be getting a pretty decent lineup this month.

    Like previous months, Xbox Live Gold subscribers will be given two free Xbox 360 games, and one free Xbox One game. As always, the Xbox One game will be available throughout the entirety of the month, whilst one of the Xbox 360 games will be available for half of the month before it is swapped out for the next one.

    On the Xbox One, Microsoft is giving away a free copy of Dark Dreams Don't Die, (or D4 for short) which usually sells for $14.99. Dark Dreams Don't Die is an episodic video game that follows a story, whilst incorporating interactive gameplay elements.

    For the first half of January, up until January 15th, Xbox Live Gold holders will be able to pick up MX vs ATX Alive, a fast paced off-road racing title which usually sells for $19.99. Starting on January 16th, Microsoft will be giving away the Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings for the remainder of the month.

    The Witcher 2 is definitely the highlight of this month's free Xbox Live Gold games, but the other titles in January's lineup are also pretty interesting.

    If either of these games aren't available in your region, you will find an alternative free game instead, although details on what games may be used as replacements have not been detailed.

  • Telltale's Game of Thrones Hits Consoles December 2nd

    telltale games game of thronesTelltale are pretty good at telling tales, let's be honest. They created the award winning The Walking Dead series, managed to live up to their high expectations with The Wolf Among Us, and very recently they returned to their story-telling roots by releasing Tales of The Borderlands - a great new game that follows the concoction Telltale are known for whilst exploring the backstory behind the Borderlands universe.

    Now, they have plans to release their in-development Game of Thrones game, and it's launch date has been set for December 2nd. On this date, the first part of a six episode series will be released for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3 and PlayStation 4, with an iOS release following shortly after.

    It seems that the entire Game of Thrones six-piece series will be available for just $30, although details on whether players will be able to buy each episode separately have not yet been mentioned by anyone at Telltale.

    I've played through The Walking Dead game by Telltale so I know there's a lot of potential for this Game of Thrones themed game too, but what do you think of the upcoming Game of Thrones Telltale game?

    It will be interesting to see how the game correlates with the story, and i'm sure a lot of die-hard GoT fans will be eager to find out just how close to the lore Telltale have stuck to with their game.

    Will you be picking up the new game on launch, waiting for reviews or skipping it entirely? Let us know your thoughts.

  • Detailed COD Advanced Warfare Prestige Emblems Detailed

    cod advanced warfare prestige emblemsWhilst nobody is yet the highest prestige in Advanced Warfare yet, the release of the game has allowed players to dive into the code and find out exactly what all of the prestige emblems look like.

    Admittedly, all of the prestige emblems in Call of Duty Advanced do look pretty cool, but the most interesting thing to come from the leaked prestige emblems is that there are a total of 16 prestiges in COD Advanced Warfare.

    It was revealed earlier in the year that Call of Duty Advanced Warfare would have a total of 15 prestiges, but it looks as if they have added in one more for the mix. On top of having 16 prestiges, Call of Duty Advanced Warfare will have 50 ranks for each prestige, meaning you will have to level up a total of 800 times before you max prestige the game, which is pretty crazy.

    In the screenshot shown above, all 16 of the new Call of Duty Advanced Warfare Prestige emblems can be seen.

    COD Advanced Warfare released earlier this week, and from our first impressions we are very impressed with the game so far. It has enough new to the franchise to keep things fresh, but it still feels and looks like the Call of Duty we have come to know and love.

    It will be interesting to see how well Call of Duty Advanced Warfare has sold, considering that it is available on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and the PC.

  • GTA San Andreas HD Now on Xbox 360

    gta san andreas hdGot any change to spare? If you have, you may want to boot up your Xbox 360 and head to the Xbox Games Store. Want to know why? Right now you will be able to find GTA: San Andreas for just a few bucks.

    The game has debuted on the Xbox 360 this week, and it comes with a range of improvements to make the game slightly better than the original.

    Firstly, the new GTA San Andreas HD has had a resolution increase, and the game now plays at 720P. Whilst it seems that Rockstar have simply upscaled the original textures, it's nice to see that the game will run smoothly on the Xbox 360 at a 720P HD resolution.

    On top of upscaling the resolution, Rockstar have also increased the in-game draw distances, which will allow players to see more area of the map at once whilst playing.

    Finally, with the debut to Xbox 360, Rockstar have added a bunch of achievements for the game that can be unlocked by playing through the story.

    The new GTA Sand Andreas HD can be picked up for just $3.74 in North America, and £2.99 in the UK. If you haven't played San Andreas before, we think that there's no reason not to pick up this game.

    The game was recently released on iPhone and Android, but it's lack of a decent control scheme easily make it a second pick when compared to the brand new HD version for Xbox 360.
