  • Next Fighter, Ermac Announced for Mortal Kombat X

    ermac Mortal Kombat XOver the last few months, Netherrealm has slowly been revealing the roster for Mortal Kombat X, fighter by fighter, and this week another fighter has been announced by the development team behind the next Mortal Kombat.

    The fighter in question is Ermac, a character that has been around since Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. Ermac resembles the appearance of a traditional ninja, and holds a variety of telekinesis-based moves.

    Ermac was originally created as a response to fan mythology in the early days of Mortal Kombat. Players believed that a glitch that caused a message to appear, reading "Error Macro," would cause Scorpion’s outfit to turn red, thus Ermac was created.

    Ermac has a pretty wide range of abilities considering that in lore he is a collection of different warriors, although most of his best abilities are related to some form of telekinesis.

    Alongside the new reveal of Ermac for Mortal Kombat X, the developers revealed that they will soon be announcing a new play on the ever popular Fatality in the next game. I'll be interested to see what they add to fighter finishing moves in Mortal Kombat X, and it'll be even more interesting to see if any classic characters get any revamped fatalities in the new game.

    As well as Ermac, thirteen other fighters have now been announced for Mortal Kombat X. This includes Scorpion, Sub-Zero, D'vorah, Cassie Cage, Kotal Kahn, Ferra & Torr, Raiden, Kitana, Kano, Kung Lao, Reptile, Quan Chi and Goro.

  • Advanced Warfare Havoc DLC Finally Arrives on Xbox

    advanced warfare havocThe first DLC pack for Call of Duty Advanced Warfare has finally arrived on the Xbox, and it can now be picked up for both the Xbox One and the Xbox 360 as part of an early access deal. The Havoc DLC will also be released for the PC and the PlayStation consoles at some point in February.

    The new Havoc DLC pack comes with a wide range of new content, including four brand new maps, and the anticipated exo zombies survival co-op mode.

    The four maps included in the Havoc DLC are Sideshow, Core, Urban and Drift. Sideshow is a shanty town built within a cargo ship. Core is within a large drilling station, and Drift is a small sized snow town. Finally, Urban is a packed city area.

    Before the Havoc DLC was officially released, two new weapons were also put out as part of the Havoc DLC pack. Season pass players were able to take hold of the weapons in the Havoc DLC earlier in the year. The weapons included a new laser AE4 Widowmaker rifle, and a direct variation of the same weapon.

    The most looked forward to feature in the Havoc DLC is the exo zombies co-op mode though, and similarly to Black Ops 2, the mode will have a set amount of missions players will be able to play through. It has been rumored that more exo zombies content will be released incrementally in each DLC after the Havoc DLC.

  • State of Decay New Gen Version Planned

    state of decay new genIf you haven't had the chance to play State of Decay yet, you might want to wait just a little bit longer before playing the solo zombie survival game. It has just been announced that State of Decay will be getting a new gen remaster for the Xbox One, and Undead Labs plan to release it fairly shortly.

    The new remastered version by Undead Labs will be called State of Decay Year One Survival Edition and it will bring remastered graphics, 1080P resolution, as well as a few new gameplay features. The remastered version will also be bundled with both the Lifeline and Breakdown DLC packs that were released earlier in it's release cycle.

    A rework has been applied to some of the animations in the new remaster of State of Decay, and improvements have also been made to the environment textures, but that's just the start of the changes. Jeff Strain, founder of Undead Labs has mentioned a few more things about the new version.

    "We're taking some of the base management features from the Lifeline DLC and integrating that into the core game, and also taking some of the heroes and characters that were introduced and allowing them to be playable characters from Lifeline and Breakdown as well."

    This will mean some of the newer characters such as Alicia Hawkes, Sergeant Kilo and Private Vince will be playable in the main portion of the game, instead of just in the Lifeline DLC.

    The new version of State of Decay will be released some time in Spring this year - it will release digitally for both the Xbox One and the PC.

  • New Achievements Released for Sunset Overdrive

    sunset overdrive achievementsInsomniac Games have just added three new achievements to Sunset Overdrive which will award players a total of 75 Gamerscore points once unlocked.

    The new achievements are aimed towards hardcore players that have completely pushed Sunset Overdrive to the limits. All three achievements will be awarded once they get a certain amount of points across three different stages. Below, we have posted the achievement details.

    Hardcore!: Buck National vs The Apocalypse: Beat the score of 600,000 on the Challenge "Buck's National vs The Apocalypse."
    Hardcore!: Buck Strikes Back: Beat the score of 564,500 on the Challenge "Buck's Strikes Back."
    Hardcore!: Buck Stops Here: Beat the score of 703,700 on the Challenge "Buck's Stops Here."

    To celebrate the new achievements added to the game, Microsoft have also reduced the price of Sunset Overdrive for a short time. If anybody is interested in picking up Sunset Overdrive, you may want to head to the Xbox Games Store as it can currently be purchased for 40% off it's original price.

    The 40% off sale only applies to the digital version of Sunset Overdrive, and currently Microsoft are the only ones to put the game on sale. The last update to Sunset Overdrive was in December - at the time Insomniac Games had released their first DLC pack for the game.

    The first Sunset Overdrive DLC was an expansion pack named Mooil Rig. There are more DLC expansions planned to release in the following months, all of which can be picked up for free if you have purchased the Sunset Overdrive season pass.

  • DICE Putting Heist Mode in Next Hardline Beta

    heist mode hardline betaDICE has announced that they will be releasing the Heist mode into the upcoming Battlefield Hardline beta, but there is a catch. Players will need to work together as a community to unlock the Heist mode.

    A new 'community mission' has been announced for Battlefield 4 players, and it asks players to accumulate a global total of 2 billion points in Battlefield 4's Rush mode. If players manage to reach this goal before the end of the month, then players will be rewarded with the Heist mode for Battlefield Hardline.

    Whilst this seems like an odd move to get more people playing Battlefield 4 in anticipation for Hardline, I have a feeling that the 2 billion Rush points should easily be reached. In fact, I expect that the average amount of weekly Rush points is close enough to two billion anyway so players should not have to worry about getting the Heist mode unlocked for the Hardline beta.

    If you do want to do your part, you can head into Battlefield 4 and play through any Rush mode to accumulate points for the challenge.

    So far, two other game modes have been announced for Hardline beta, and Heist would be the third. The first game mode is Conquest, a 64 players slaughter fest, and Hotwire, a vehicle based Cops and Criminals style game mode. It seems like most items and gadgets will be available in the Hardline beta - Visceral Games are using this as their last chance to test everything to make sure it all works.

    "The beta is your shot to test the different classes, toy with different gadgets, and find your crew to take down your foes. To be frank, we want you to play this beta to death. We need you to. This test is only going to make the game stronger, and help us take a look at ways we can ensure we deliver the most stable launch you deserve."

  • ESO Details Revealed, Including Subscription Drop

    ESO subscription dropMMO fans rejoice, the news you've been waiting to hear since the PC release of the Elder Scrolls Online is finally ready to be heard. That's right, due to a lack of interest, Zenimax have opted to drop the monthly subscription of the Elder Scrolls Online, and it will be opening the game to all players for free.

    The new version of the game has been named The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited, and whilst new players will still need to purchase the base price of the game, the monthly subscription afterwards will no longer be required. Instead, there will be optional in-game content that can be purchased as DLC content, and players can also purchase in-game currency to spend on certain cosmetic and customization options.

    I think it's great to hear that The Elder Scrolls Online has dropped the subscription model. Simply having a one-off fee for the game should be enough as it is, especially considering the game costs as much as a new console game.

    Talking about console games, The Elder Scrolls: Tamriel Unlimited will be releasing on consoles shortly as well. Unfortunately the previous launch dates of the console versions of The Elder Scrolls Online have consistently been pushed back. Whilst the PC version of the new PC ESO will release on March 17th, the console versions for the PS4 and the Xbox One will not be released till late 2014.

    Will you be picking up the ESO now that the subscription has been removed?

  • Master Chief Collection Matchmaking Updates Incoming

    master chief collection matchmakinA new Master Chief Collection update has been planned to improve online matchmaking, but strangely 343 Industries will not make the update available to all players straight away.

    The update, which has since been delayed, was planned to fix many issues with the current in-game matchmaking system. Whilst 343 Industries did mention that they would release the update this month, new plans reveal that most players will not get to experience the update at all.

    Before full release, the matchmaking update will be pushed to a select few US beta participants, and these members will be able to help stress test the matchmaking before it is finally rolled out globally.

    To enter the beta process and be in with a chance of entering the matchmaking beta, you must reside in the US and join the Xbox One preview program. 343 Industries gave a small statement about the update.

    "In recent weeks, we have been conducting extensive internal testing of an upcoming content update for Halo: The Master Chief Collection."
    "Given the scale of the update, which includes changes to the matchmaking experience and party system, we are expanding testing to include select members of the Xbox One Preview program to ensure the official release is the best possible experience for all players.
    "The content update beta test is open to Xbox One owners within North America who have a copy of Halo: The Master Chief Collection and have opted-in for Xbox One beta testing as part of the Xbox One Preview program."
    "This is an opt-in opportunity and the content update will only be made available to selected participants within the Xbox One Preview program, based on the highest levels of engagement with Halo: The Master Chief Collection. On Friday, January 23, participants selected will be prompted to download the content update automatically when the title is started."

  • Gearbox Hiring for Next Borderlands Game

    next borderlands gameOh, hurrah - Gearbox seem to be gearing up for yet another Borderlands game. If you haven't become bored of the franchise already, then you might be excited to hear this news. If you are bored of Borderlands, keep reading, this new game might offer something a little different if a new job listing is anything to go by.

    Gearbox president, Randy Pitchford took to Twitter to post an image asking for any individuals in the games industry to send their CVs to Randy's personal email. In the image, the words "Next Borderlands Team" were written, alongside lots of silhouetted figures. The phrase "This could be you" were written all over the image, which almost suggests that Randy and the guys at Gearbox are looking for a fairly large amount of new people to join their team.

    We've seen a few 'we're hiring' posts by developers in the past that inadvertently lead to us discovering about new upcoming games a little early, but these kind of posts usually offer a handful of positions at most.

    If Gearbox are really planning to recruit a whole new team for their next Borderlands game, does that mean they have something extra ambitious planned? Well, that could be completely possible. As well as linking his email address, Randy Pitchford mentioned that "This is the big one." in reference to the next Borderlands game.

    That sentence is enough to get me excited - I had honestly become bored of the franchise after completing the second game, but it sounds as if Borderlands 3 might be an entirely new beast that could help re-invent the Borderlands universe. If this is the case then I cannot wait to find out more about the game.

  • Uncharted Style Han Solo Game May be In the Works

    han solo gameDisney's purchase of Lucasarts may have caused a few upcoming Star Wars games to be canned, but it looks like the Star Wars name may now be force pushed further into the industry as rumors suggest Disney are gearing up to release another game from the same universe.

    According to the rumors circulating around the supposed Star Wars game, the new title will feature Han Solo as the protagonist. Whilst we know little about the gameplay of the rumored Han Solo game, many believe that the title may end up something a little like the Uncharted series.

    If that is the case, we sure can expect some interesting 3D platforming as well as a lot of explosive action, and maybe a Wookie or two along the way as well. The source of the rumors also suggest that part of the same team currently working on Battlefield Hardline will move over to working on the Han Solo game.

    DICE already has ties with the Star Wars universe and they are currently working on the new gen Battlefront title, but the latest Battlefield game is mostly under the control of another company, Visceral Games.

    Visceral Games do have experience with third person shooters, and previous rumors have suggested that the company are currently working on an "untitled Star Wars" game. There’s certainly a little bit of doubt in us about the likelihood of a Han Solo game appearing, but we’re hoping it could come to light. We expect Visceral could do a pretty good job with it.

  • Call of Duty World at War 2 Rumored

    world at war 2It's always best to be a little skeptical at this time of the year. Around this time, we usually start to hear a thing or two about the next Call of Duty game, but across multiple development teams, it's easy for false information to start circulating.

    With that being said, a current rumor spreading across the internet suggests that the next Call of Duty game will be a sequel to the original World at War. Before we get into the likelihood of such a thing happening or not, I just have to say that a world war game would be an incredibly refreshing change, and I'd absolutely love to see such a game reach the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4.

    In reality though, we can't quite be sure if World at War will be the next Call of Duty game or not. The leak comes from a fairly unreputable source on Twitter. Despite this, it has caused quite a big stir up in the community, and the same leaker has posted similar 'Call of Duty leaks' in the past.

    The trouble is that another insider has denied that such a game will ever come to light, especially not this year. But it's hard to know who to trust - the real industry insider, who may or may not be trying to keep things under wraps, or the fairly unknown leaker who suggests the next game will indeed by World at War 2?

    All we can do is wait for more information. If the rumors are to be trusted, we'll find out more about World at War 2 in May this year.
