  • PUBG Playerbase Overtook F2P Title Dota 2

    pubg playerbase beats dota 2If you haven't played Playerunknown's Battlegrounds yet, chances are you've at least heard of it. The game has quickly become the most played Steam title on PC. Recently, Battlegrounds managed to overtake Dota 2, the reigning Steam champ.

    Battlegrounds hit a peak of 877,000 players earlier this month. With these stats, it narrowly outperformed Dota 2 for both peak player and concurrent player numbers.

    Since the inception of Dota 2 on Steam, not a single game has managed to consistently stay as high in the charts as Battlegrounds has. Over the last few years, very few gameplay titles have managed to get past Dota 2, either. This is partially due to the fact that Dota 2 is a free-to-play MOBA title, just like League of Legends. It's also due to the fact that Steam's company, Valve, has developed the game.

    The closest game to compete with Dota 2 is Valve's other game Counter Strike: Global Offensive. A game currently retailing for around $10.

    The recent stats are even more impressive when you realize that Playerunknown's Battlegrounds currently retails for around $30, three times as much as Counter Strike: Global Offensive.

    Currently, Playerunknown's Battlegrounds is exclusive to the PC platform. A third party developer is working on bringing Battlegrounds to Xbox One, and we should see it make it to Xbox's Early Access program soon.

    We don't yet have a release date for the Xbox One version, and there's no news of PUBG ever coming to PlayStation 4.

  • Tekken 7 Extended Trailer Shown at Comic-Con

    Tekken 7 extended trailerAfter the recent pre-announcement slip-up for Tekken 7 earlier in the month, it looks like Bandai Namco have taken to the stage at this year's Comic-Con to do themselves justice. The developers of the latest Tekken games have just released a brand new extended trailer to officially announce Tekken, without any leaks getting in the way this time.

    The new Tekken 7 trailer is just over 3 minutes in length, and depicts part of the story the franchise the game has already laid out in previous games. Whilst it may be an exciting watch for many fans of the franchise, the latest extended Tekken 7 trailer didn't really do enough to draw many people in, and it will definitely have a tough time going up against Mortal Kombat X, a game which has recently had a reveal trailer that depicts some very epic fight scenes.

    Whilst we haven't seen any actual gameplay of Tekken 7 yet, we can expect the game to look absolutely incredible, thanks to the new Unreal Engine 4, which series game director and producer Katsuhiro Harada announced the game to be developed on.

    It will definitely be a fierce battle between Mortal Kombat X and Tekken 7, and I personally cannot wait to see some actual live gameplay of both games in the near future.

    Tekken 7 has not yet got a set release date, however it is likely that the game will be released within the next year. Tekken 7 will definitely make it to the PS4 and Xbox One, but it could possible be released for the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 as well.

  • Unreal Engine 4 Powered Thriller Coming to PS4

    without memory ps4From what we've seen the Unreal Engine 4 looks absolutely stunning. Unreal Engine 3 has been used for years, and despite now being many years old, games can still look beautiful and run ridiculously smoothly when built on the Unreal Engine.

    Hopefully the 4th rendition of Unreal Engine will be able to render even more life-like graphics whilst still staying smooth and easy on the eyes in terms of frame rate and overall performance.

    We'll probably see dozens of Unreal Engine 4 powered games in the near future, and a brand new one that has just popped up is a thriller title by the name of Without Memory. This particular title is being developed by a Russian development studio by the name of Dinosaurum Games, and it is planned for a release some time in 2016.

    In Without Memory, the player will follow the story of a girl who awoke in the middle of a forest without any prior memories, and according to Dinosaurum Games, this 'interactive thriller' will have tens of endings.

    It looks like Without Memory will offer a similar play experience to Quantic Dream's Beyond: Two Souls, however it's sounds like Dinosaurum Games will make sure the player feels as if their choices really matter, which is something that Beyond: Two Souls failed to capture.

    2016 is still quite far away though, but hopefully we will hear more about Without Memory fairly soon. Perhaps we'll even see some kind of cinematic reveal at this year's E3.
