  • E3: Skyrim VR Is Coming to PlayStation 4

    skyrim vr e3Skyrim has already been released and re-released a million times already, but the latest addition to the PlayStation 4 should capture Elder Scrolls fans enough to bring them back to the game one final time.

    Skyrim VR was unveiled at the Sony E3 press conference. It has been confirmed as an exclusive title for the PlayStation 4 and will require the PlayStation VR kit to run. The game also supports PlayStation Move for hand gesture movement and control of the character's hands in Skyrim.

    So far, the release date was shared for Skyrim VR, and it wasn't made clear if Skyrim VR would remain an exclusive to Sony forever. Bethesda also unveiled Fallout 4 VR and Doom VFR at E3, although they weren't announced at Sony's E3 event.

    The price tag has not been confirmed yet, either. We wouldn't be surprised if Bethesda put the Skyrim VR game up for sale as a standalone game, but now that there have been so many Skyrim versions for various consoles, it's only fair that Bethesda considers putting a reasonable price on it. We'd be surprised if many gamers would be willing to pay full price for Skyrim...again.

    What are your thoughts on Bethesda's entry into the world of virtual reality? Do you think their range of games will translate well into the VR field? If you've got a VR headset, would you consider buying Skyrim VR? If you don't have a VR headset, does the announcement of Skyrim VR make you want to pick a headset up?

  • Call of Duty WW2 Multiplayer Detailed

    call of duty ww2 multiplayerDetails for the multiplayer in the new Call of Duty WW2 have been spilled at this year's E3. We now have a gameplay trailer for the multiplayer aspect of WW2, and a confirmation on the date for the PS4 multiplayer beta.

    Firstly, the new multiplayer reveal trailer for Call of Duty WW2 has now gone live. The trailer features a number of noteworthy shots. Some of the environments players can expect to play in are seen. Locations include Normandy in France; the Ardennes Forest in Belgium, and Aachen in Germany.

    Some gameplay footage was also shown. Straight off the bat, it's clear that this is a Call of Duty game - but it certainly feels more in-line with the earlier Call of Duty titles. Those that played Call of Duty World at War will feel at home with Call of Duty WW2, that's for sure.

    While the game has a more gritty, realistic approach, it'll still have a number of trademark Call of Duty features, including a Zombies mode.

    In other news, the Call of Duty WW2 multiplayer beta now has a date. The multiplayer beta will begin on PlayStation 4 on August 25. We're not yet sure how long the beta will last, and we're not sure if there will be an Xbox One or PC beta. It is clear, however, that the beta is currently exclusive to those that preorder Call of Duty WW2 on the PS4.

  • E3: Intel and ESL Partner for eSports

    intel esl esports e3Intel and ESL have taken to the stage of E3 to announce their plans for partnership on bringing esports to a bigger crowd.

    ESL has long been one of the biggest players in the esports event industry, so it's clear that Intel is serious about making esports big with their new esports partnership.

    Some may not be aware, but Intel has also been in the esports game for a long time. The ESL and Intel partnership has also been ongoing for a good few years. The IEM (Intel Extreme Masters) esports event, for example, started back in 2007.

    IEM has always been an event co-hosted by Intel and ESL, so with this new partnership, you may be wondering what will actually come out of it that hasn't already been done in the past.

    Intel will essentially be the driving force of all Intel events going forth - Intel will be responsible for the operation of all PCs needed for eSports events, and Intel will also be in control of all live streaming events.

    Intel has also confirmed that a new event, called the Intel Grand Slam, will be coming to competitive Counter Strike. In the Grand Slam event, Intel is offering a bonus of $1 million for any team that wins 4 out of the 10 matches that are to be played.

    Finally, Intel is putting their chips on esports in VR - they have announced a VR Challenger League that'll support a competitive scene for the Echo Arena VR game.

  • Evil Controllers Shift Pro Controller Coming This Summer

    evil controllers shift pro controllerWe've been doing modded controllers for years - we've provided gamers the tools they have needed to take their game to the next level. We've completely nailed the modded controller market.

    Recently, there has been a surge in interest for pro controllers - this is a relatively new space in the controller market and we think it deserves our name on it.


    This new controller has been built from the ground up to compete in the pro controller space amongst giants like the Xbox One Elite.

    The Evil Shift is currently in production for both the PS4 and Xbox One and will be made available this summer.

    We've modded the Evil Shift controllers to their fullest potential, making sure not to cross any lines that would disqualify the controller from any official esports events.

    This means we've got highly accurate interchangeable Evil Thumbsticks - these bad boys have more surface area, better grip, and can be swapped in and out on the fly.

    Our new Evil Shift hairpin triggers have been designed to give your controller faster response time - we're talking a 50% reduction in tension. The smoother trigger press will increase fire rate in all games.

    Our Evil Shift controller also features four unique paddle buttons at the rear of the control - they're remappable and incredibly responsive. The paddles also fit right where your fingers will be, so pressing the paddle buttons is like second nature to any gamer.

    Everything about the Evil Shift controller is available as a single hardware product - there's no messing around with software or apps - just pick it up and play.

  • Mass Effect: Andromeda 1.07 Patch Released

    mass effect andromeda 1.07The latest Mass Effect: Andromeda patch has now gone live. Patch 1.07 addresses some important tweaks and stability improvements after the latest multiplayer update.

    Michael Gamble, producer for Mass Effect: Andromeda took to Twitter to announce that the patch "Fixes a crash with the SOS quest and a problem with >1080p UI placement. The patch also makes an athletic outfit available mid-playthrough."

    In the previous update, which was patch 1.06, far more changes were brought to the game. The 1.06 update brought a huge number of important balancing changes multiplayer and combat in general.

    There were a few large balancing changes, as well as plenty of smaller tweaks and adjustments. On the Bioware blog, an overview of the patch was shared. We'll provide an excerpt from the blog below.

    "We've received a lot of community feedback about balance issues in multiplayer. We have improved the overall experience based on that feedback and our own testing.

    Powers and weapons were underperforming at higher difficulties--particularly power combos and assault rifles. As a result, players relied heavily on the Vanquisher sniper rifle and melee-focused classes.

    We found current damage levels significantly slowed the pace of games on Gold and Silver difficulties. To fix this, we started to overhaul the balance in multiplayer. Today's changes are the first step in that process."

    Have you tested out the new changes to multiplayer yet? What are your thoughts? Do you think all of the changes were necessary, or should some changes be reverted?

  • Destiny 2 To Get Clan Support

    destiny 2 clan supportDestiny 2 is finally getting in-game clan support.

    In the original Destiny, players were forced to build clans and organize team events outside of the game. It was far more difficult to get players together, but despite this, massive communities were built around Destiny anyway.

    In Destiny 2, players will no longer need to go through the same struggles. Destiny 2 will introduce in-game clan support to the franchise for the first time. Anybody will be able to set up a clan and invite friends. Once a clan is created, players will get given periodic rewards based upon the entire clan's performance throughout different activities in Destiny 2.

    Each clan will have their own Clan banner, which players will be able to wear with pride.

    Bungie also announced a new feature that will help players without clans. In Destiny, it was very difficult to play the high-level content without a team of friends to do it with, because of the lack of matchmaking for raids. In Destiny 2, clans will be able to search for additional players if they are a player or two short.

    This will give players in clans the opportunity to find additional players when there aren't enough clan members online, and it will also give players without a clan the chance to play with clans that they could then potentially join.

    Destiny 2 is going to launch on September 8, 2017 and will be coming to PC, Xbox One and the PlayStation 4.

  • Destiny 2 New Crucible Detailed

    destiny 2 crucibleDuring the Destiny 2 live stream, changes to the Crucible were announced live.

    It's been confirmed that the Destiny 2 Crucible PvP mode will have more of a focus on competitive gameplay. As a result, the mode has been adapted to better fit a competitive format. Going forward, all Crucible game modes in Destiny 2 will feature a 4 versus 4 team line up. In the first Destiny, PvP modes supported up to 6 versus 6.

    On top of that, all of the previous Crucible game modes from Destiny will be making their return to Destiny 2. A brand new game mode was also confirmed during the Destiny 2 live stream event.

    The new Destiny 2 Crucible game mode is called Countdown - it's essentially an attack and defend mode that will give teams the objective to either defend or attack. Objectives for each team will alternate each round.

    More changes are coming to the Crucible in Destiny 2 to make it more of a competitive arena. New information will be shared during the game to give each team more information. For example, players will know when an enemy is using their power or picking up important objectives on the map.

    Destiny 2 is set to release on September 8, 2017 and will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. It was confirmed during the live stream that the PC version would be available through Blizzard's client, as opposed to Steam.
