  • New Mafia 3 Trailer Showcases Gameplay


    A brand new Mafia 3 trailer has been released by 2K Games and it features a range of interesting gameplay scenes.

    This particular new trailer focuses on the variety of weapons that will be available in Mafia 3. It's clear that the different weapon choices players will have in Mafia 3 will mark an important aspect of gameplay for the entirety of a playthrough.

    At the beginning, the trailer focuses on a number of different pistols and hand-to-hand weapons, such as knives and bayonets. Quickly the trailer progresses onto a much larger arsenal and around the 0:30 mark a huge collection of weapons can be seen. Pistols, sniper rifles, assault rifles, shotguns, rocket launchers and SMGs can be seen flying by.

    Hopefully players will be able to choose which weapons they'd like to use at any point in the game - with such a wide variety of weapons, from 9mm pistols to LMGs and rocket launchers, there's certainly a lot of choice available.

    The weapon select interface may share similar traits to the weapon wheel in Grand Theft Auto V - In fact, a work in progress wheel can be seen at the 0:40 mark in the trailer on Youtube. The wheel not only includes weapons but it also has slots for special abilities and useful help from friends the player will no doubt have made acquaintances during their playthrough.

    Will you be picking up Mafia 3 once it launches on October 7?

  • GTA Ill-Gotten Gains Update Coming

    gta ill-gotten gainsRockstar has announced their plans for their next DLC content expansion for GTA Online and it will include a number of high class luxury items for players to purchase. Considering that the new heists have given players a large number of ways to earn millions worth of cash on GTA Online, the upcoming Ill-Gotten Gains update couldn't come at a better time.

    The new Ill-Gotten Gains update for GTA V will be released in two parts, the first of which will be coming next week. So far Rockstar hasn't detailed all of the new items that will be in the update, but they have shown off a number of screenshots showcasing the new items.

    Players can expect to find high end clothes, gold weapon skins, gold planes, gold cars and all sorts of other over the top luxury items, vehicles and vehicle wraps.

    The second part of the Ill-Gotten Gains update for GTA V has not yet received a release date, but we're likely to hear more about it once the first part is released next week. Rockstar hasn't given pricing information about the new items, but they have listed the following on their website as part of the Ill-Gotten Gains update.

    New Enus Windsor with eight vehicle wraps
    Gold Buckingham Swift Deluxe
    Gold Combat PDW weapon
    Albany Virgo vehicle
    Pegassi Osiris
    Solid gold Buckingham Luxor Deluxe
    Hundreds of new clothing items and accessories

    These new items should also be available in the singleplayer portion of GTA V.

  • Batman Arkham Knight Will Have Interesting Character Switch Mechanic

    batman arkham knightNew details have emerged about how players will play through Batman Arkham Knight. This time round, players will have access to different playable characters, and they will be able to swap between the different characters in a similar fashion to Grand Theft Auto V.

    Unlike Grand Theft Auto 5, the different playable characters in Batman Arkham Knight will not be going about their own business in the world. Instead, you can switch out to any superheroes accompanying Batman at the time at the tap of a button.

    This new information was revealed in a brand new trailer for Batman Arkham Knight. In the trailer, Cat woman, Robin and Night Wing are seen as characters that players can switch out to at any time. Whilst we aren't sure whether this will be the full lineup of characters, this trio of superheroes is going to be more than capable of making Batman's day just a little bit easier.

    When switching to a new character in the midst of a fight, you will sometimes be able to chain together some pretty spectacular dual play combo attacks. We've seen something like this in fighting games before but this is the first time it works so flawlessly in an action game like Batman Arkham Knight.

    The trailer ends with a small glimpse of Harley Quinn - if you pre-order Batman Arkham Knight before the game is released you will be able to play as her in the challenge maps.

  • GTA V 1.10 Patch Out Now

    gta v 1.1.0 patchA new patch has rolled out for Grand Theft Auto V and it fixes a number of issues, namely for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game.

    One of the major fixes includes changes to the graphical quality of the game. Many players noticed that the graphical fidelity of Grand Theft Auto V on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One decreased after update 1.08. As you can imagine a lot of players were frustrated with this change, and Rockstar did not issue a statement as to why this happened at the time.

    The new update has reverted any of the graphical changes to how the game looked before update 1.08. Rockstar also mentioned that the 1.08 changes were not deliberate, and it was something that was put into the update by accident. So rest assured, GTA V for the PS4 and Xbox One isn't going to be looking any less gorgeous any time soon.

    Another fix for 1.1.0 resolves the problem some players would have on GTA Online which would make the appearance of their character change randomly across multiple occasions whilst playing. We're not sure what caused this strange bug in the first place but your characters will no longer be having an identity crisis in 1.1.0.

    A new fix to some of the animations now makes it clearer when another player is aiming at you on GTA Online. Previously it would not always display the right animation when a player was
    aiming at another player, and this made it hard to notice when a player was about to open fire.

  • GTA Online Exploiters Being Blown to Pieces

    gta online duke o deathIn a new update to Grand Theft Auto Online, a certain exploit is causing abusers to blow up into a fiery explosion of shame and guilt. Whilst the exploit that this new update applies to isn't entirely game breaking, it's nice to see that Rockstar are stopping bug abusers in an out of the box fashion.

    When the new generation version of Grand Theft Auto 5 was released, the Duke 'O Death vehicle was added to the singleplayer of the game. The vehicle was however not added to the multiplayer version of the game. Many players have managed to find an exploit that allowed them to add the Duke O' Death to Grand Theft Auto Online and it allowed them to drive the car around freely and even use it in certain events and missions.

    Obviously this is not a very fair exploit as it allows players to get a very decent car without putting any effort in. Fortunately Rockstar have stopped exploiters in their traps, and whilst the exploit can still be performed, as soon as a player tries to enter the Duke O' Death the car will implode, killing the player on impact.

    I think it's awfully fitting to see the Duke O' Death cause so many player deaths in the latest update, and I'm glad that Rockstar took this humorous approach instead of punishing the players further. The bug exploit was unfair but it was no way near as serious as cheating can be. In the past, Rockstar had to spend a lot of their resources dealing with online hackers that would fill other player's inventories with billions of dollars of cash.

  • GTA V Heists Coming Next Week

    gta v heistsEven though the PC version of Grand Theft Auto V has been delayed once again, the release date for online heists have finally been locked down, and we will be seeing them in-game from March 10th onwards.

    As you can imagine, Rockstar have quite a bit to say about the online heists, which have taken them months longer than they first anticipated to complete.

    In a new statement on the Rockstar blog, it read -

    "We are excited to announce that the launch of Heists for GTA Online is scheduled for March 10th. We know it's been a wait, and appreciate your patience. Heists will bring a brand new 4-player cooperative gameplay experience to GTA Online, giving players the chance to team up to pull off a string of intense, multi-part raids and robberies across Los Santos and Blaine County. Over the next couple of weeks, we will have more information about the launch of Heists and about other new features that we will release with it."

    Hopefully Rockstar will reveal more details about how exactly heists will work online over the days leading up to the release of the new update. I personally cannot wait to see what kind of fun situations players will be able to get themselves into.

    Heists were originally planned to launch alongside the release of GTA Online, but they were then delayed to later in on the year. We expected a release around Christmas last year, but once again they were delayed. It sounds Rockstar wanted to get the experience as perfect as possible, so let's hope they are great fun.

  • Rockstar Lists GTA V New Gen Returning Player Exclusives

    rockstar returning player exclusivesIf you have already purchased Grand Theft Auto V on either the Xbox 360 or the PlayStation 4, you are in for a treat - Rockstar have just announced a bunch of exclusive content that will only be available to those that have played GTA V on the Xbox 360 or PS3 in the past.

    The new content will range from new items to completely new events and rewards. Starting with events, returning players will be able to access random events across the game. On top of this, there will be a new 'Duke O' Death' vehicle, and the infamous Dodo seaplane will also be making a return.

    Players will also be given a brand new story mission to play through where they will take control of Michael as he follows a cryptic murder mystery.

    There will also be two new weapons for returning players - a high velocity rail gun, and an up close and personal hatchet melee weapon.

    Players will also be able to take part in a new animal photography challenge which will get players travelling the entire of Los Santos in the hopes to take snaps of the new wildlife added to the PS4 and the Xbox One.

    There will also be new muscle races and a bunch of new vehicles, all of which will be exclusive to returning players. I must admit, there is definitely a lot of content to encourage me to want to buy it on a new gen console.

  • GTA V Should Run at 1080P

    GTA V 1080PGood news to those that are obsessed about frame rates and resolution - Grand Theft Auto V should be able to run at 1080P on the PlayStation 4. Whilst the news doesn't come from Rockstar themselves, this information comes from Official PlayStation Magazine, so the information shared is most likely to be true.

    Within the GTA V PS4 section in the magazine, it reads, "Glimmering 1080P presentation, fresh wild-life, 100 new songs, a bumper version of GTA Online, this is a sandbox you've dreamt about ever since you slotted Sony's angular baby under your TV."

    We've already heard about the new songs being added to the radios in GTA V for next gen, and the fresh wildlife has also been mentioned by Rockstar.

    We've come to expect a more improved version of GTA Online too, so the 1080P rumors within the Official PlayStation Magazine probably will turn out to be real information.

    Whilst this magazine focuses on the PlayStation 4 version of GTA V, it is likely that the Xbox One will receive just as many features, and I don't see why there won't be 1080P options on there either.

    If the Xbox One GTA V doesn't support 1080P there is bound to be a lot of controversy to follow.

    One other thing that the Official PlayStation Magazine fails to mention is anything about frame rate. We can of course expect to see 30FPS, but will we manage to get any more than that when playing at 1080P?

    Considering GTA V is such a large game, I would not be surprised if the frames were capped at 30, but we will have to see.

  • GTA V for PS4 and Xbox One Might Have First Person Mode

    gta v first personWe've already talked a little bit about the new upcoming features of Grand Theft Auto V for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, but new rumors suggest that there may be even more features planned for the game that Rockstar are yet to reveal.

    One such rumor makes the proposal that Rockstar may have been working on a first person mode for Grand Theft Auto 5, and it may make it's way into the game for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One release.

    Whilst there's no way to confidently confirm or deny these rumors, the source comes from a Rockstar blog reader who supposedly found a 'cached' version of the new gen announcement blog within the Rockstar website's code.

    On the cached version of the website, the first person mode was described as 'A brand new first person mode for vehicles that shows the interior of the vehicle, including working speedometers, tachometers, dash lights, and more.'

    The cached blog post also went on to describe a new first person mode whilst on foot too. It could be possible that these rumors are completely fabricated, and there is in fact no first person mode coming to GTA V on the Xbox One and the PS4, but at the same time there is chance that Rockstar could have spent the time to develop such a system. We'll have to play the waiting game and hope Rockstar responds to the rumors.

  • GTA V for PS4 and Xbox One Dated

    gta v ps4 release dateIt's finally happened, Rockstar have released all there is to know about the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Grand Theft Auto V, including the release date of the next gen version of the game.

    Retailers around the world have now started to put up pre-orders for GTA V next gen for both the PS4 and the Xbox One, in anticipation for the release date, which has been set for November 18th this year.

    GTA V for Xbox One and PS4 will come with a wide range of changes that couldn't make it into the original game due to hardware limitations of the previous generation of consoles. Some of the new changes include new weapons, new vehicles and new activities, as well as increased wildlife and a new and improved foliage and terrain system.

    There will also be denser traffic in GTA V for PS4 and Xbox One, making car chases in the city even more intense, and players will notice changes to the weather and vehicle damage systems in-game.

    There will also be an extra 100 songs added to the GTA radio, and the online player count is reportedly being increased to 30 players per server. All of the previously created content and GTA Online gameplay patches for GTA V will be ported over to the new versions of the game, and players will be rewarded with $500,000 spending cash for both the story mode and online mode.

    Whilst the PS4 and Xbox One versions are set for release on November 18th, the PC version of GTA V is set for a release in January 2015.
