  • Gran Turismo Sport Getting Free Demo

    gran turismo sport demo ps4If you're not sure if you'll be interested in the upcoming Gran Turismo Sport racing game for the PlayStation 4, you may want to give the free demo a try.

    Sony has confirmed that PS4 owners will be able to give Gran Turismo Sport a test run for free from October 9 until October 12. This will essentially follow the same beta pre-release model many triple-A publishers have been following in recent years.

    If you're a PS Plus member, you'll get more time than those without PS Plus. Firstly, PS Plus members will be given the option to preload the Gran Turismo Sport demo before its starting date on October 9. They'll also be able to get started on October 9 at 12 AM, while non-Plus members must wait until 6 PM.

    The preload period for PS Plus members will start on October 7. Players who earn money or unlock cars in the Gran Turismo demo can also transfer their progress to the full release later in the month on October 17.

    All car unlocks can be transferred to the full game and in-game earnings up to $1,000,000 can also be transferred.

    In the demo, three different modes will be available. These modes are Sport Mode, Arcade, and Campaign. Arcade mode is described as "a wide range of vehicle classes on three pre-selected circuit configurations with different terrains." This mode also supports two-player split screen.

    Sport mode challenges players to achieve the best lap time possible, whereas Campaign mode gives players a career to progress through that'll include a series of races, challenges, and Daily Workouts.

  • MotoGP eSports Championship Underway

    motogp esports championshipWhile MotoGP eSports hasn't really been a thing before, it is now - a brand new eSports championship for MotoGP has started and it'll give players a chance to win a brand new car.

    The new MotoGP eSports championship started on July 27th. The event will start with six challenges.

    The first challenge will be a time trial on the Circuito de Jerez track. Players must play as Marc Marquez on the HRC Honda. If players beat the qualifying time, they'll be taken to the next challenge.

    In total, there are 5 more challenges like the first one. By the end of it all, players will be taken to the MotoGP Challenge - a chance for all players that have made it through the challenges so far to race against others.

    The players with the quickest cumulative time in the MotoGP Challenge will have a chance to qualify for the Grand Finals.

    The Grand Final event will only see two of the fastest players out of the entire event. The final will be held in Valencia on November 11, and both players will be given VIP access to the Grand Premio Motul de la Comunitat Valenciana event on November 12.

    The player that wins the final on November 11 will also be awarded a BMW 240i M-Series and will be given the MotoGP eSports Champion title.

    Do you think MotoGP eSports could catch on, or do you think this will be a one-off thing?

  • Dirt 4 Gets New Trailer

    dirt 4 new trailerCodemasters has released a brand new trailer for their upcoming racing game, Dirt 4, and it already looks absolutely spectacular.

    The trailer is only a minute long, but it does show off some good in-game footage from some off-road tracks, as well as some more traditional off-road racing spots. The game also features the song Instigators by Grace Potter - we feel like it's a fitting choice. It'll be one of the forty songs that will accompany Dirt 4's soundtrack upon the game's release.

    Speaking of release, Dirt 4 has booked a North American release date of June 6th, 2017. The rest of the world will receive the game on June 9th. Dirt 4 will be available for PC, Xbox One and PS4.

    Dirt 4 will come with 50 off-road ready vehicles at launch, including the Ford Fiesta R5, Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VI, Subaru WRX STI NR4 and Audi Sport quattro S1 E2. The game will feature rally locations across Australia, Spain, Michigan, Sweden, and Wales. Players will have access to the solo career mode, and plenty of online competitive modes and regular challenges.

    Dirt 4 will also feature a Live ladder system, leagues, tournaments, cross-platform leaderboards, and an enhanced CREST telemetry system.

    For those super serious about the game, on-the-fly tuning is available for players to tweak their cars depending on different weather and environmental changes.

  • "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.

  • DriveClub Japan DLC Released

    driveclub japan dlcDriveClub developers Evolution Studios have taken to social media to announce a brand new DLC pack that has just launched for their game. The DLC pack, named DriveClub Japan, features a variety of tracks located in Japan.

    What’s most exciting about the news from all this though is that the DLC pack will be put up for free, and all players will be able to get in game and download it. Evolution Studios seem to be pretty thankful of the community feedback at the moment, and as a result it looks like the Japan DLC will be our thank you gift.

    In a post on their Facebook page, Evolution Studios wrote, "Along with our own research and gameplay data analysis, your input has been a big help in shaping all of the tracks we're developing for Japan. Especially the many, many requests for an epic point-to-point like this and for wider tracks to make fighting for position less frustrating, particularly in online races."

    On top of the new free Japan DLC pack, Evolution Studios have confirmed that an expansion pack will be releasing later in January. The second expansion pack for January has been named the Apex expansion, and will fall into the season pass. This pack includes a bunch of new cars, such as the Jaguar C-X75 Concept, Enzo Ferrari and Caterham R500 Superlight.

    Are you happy to hear that Evolution Studios are handing out free DriveClub DLC? Once you’ve managed to try out the Japan tracks, feel free to stop by here and let us know your thoughts on them.

  • Forza Horizon 2 Storm Island DLC Released

    forza horizon 2 storm island - CopyTurn 10 Studios have just released a new DLC pack for Forza Horizon 2, and it looks pretty interesting. Called Storm Island, this new expansion adds extreme weather, extreme rough terrain and a roster of new cars.

    On top of the aforementioned content, the new Storm Island DLC will include a few new game modes and events, which will be accessible in-game once the DLC has been purchased.

    The Storm Island DLC costs $19.99 for standard players and $9.99 for Forza Horizon 2 VIP members, and will include new off road areas, harsh weather and six new off-road vehicles that have been built specifically to deal with the new punishing terrain.

    On top of this, Storm Island will include over 80 new events and 23 achievements have been added through this pack which can net players an extra 500 Gamerscore.

    Interestingly, Forza and Turn 10 community manager Brian Ekberg revealed that the new DLC will only be supported on the Xbox One, as development for the Xbox 360 port has mostly halted.

    In line with the lack of new DLC for the Xbox 360, all other new content, rewards and loyalty programs for Forza Horizon 2 have been made exclusively for the Xbox One version of the game.

    Ekberg has stated previously that, "Forza Rewards benefits are only available in the Xbox One version of Forza Horizon 2. This means that Xbox 360 players will not receive Forza Rewards credits or cars. In addition, progress in the 360 version of Forza Horizon 2 does not count towards your Forza Rewards Tier Level score."

  • The Crew will Release with No Game-Breaking Bugs, Before Reviews

    the crew launch bugsAfter the controversy behind Assassins' Creed Unity, it's no surprise that many gamers are starting to worry about any games released by Ubisoft at this point, and it seems to have scared many people away from buying into the Crew, a new upcoming new gen racing game.

    Whilst the Crew has been in development for a long time and has even been pushed back so that Ubisoft can polish the quality of it, many people are still worried about any bugs that may be preset at launch.

    Ubisoft on the other hand seem pretty confident that there is nothing to worry about, and they have even mentioned that the Crew will be launched without any game-breaking bugs. This seems to be majorly down to the open beta stages of the Crew, something that Assassin's Creed Unity did not have.

    "For The Crew, we've reaped the benefits of a long term beta program, designed specifically to push our infrastructure as far as possible in real world situations, with thousands of players from all over the world playing the game at the same time."

    Interestingly, Ubisoft will not be giving any early copies of the Crew out to reviewers, so we will have no inside feedback about the game until after it has launched. This will mean that players will not have any critic reviews to go on when making a purchasing decision, so those that are worried about the quality of the game may want to wait a couple of days before diving in.

  • Project Cars Delayed Till 2015

    project cars 2015Whilst DriveClub has finally released this month, the other upcoming racing sim we've all been waiting for has had yet another delay, pushing it back past the holiday season and on to next year.

    The game I'm talking about is of course Project Cars, and the developers have recently confirmed that after talks they have decided to push back the game, but the reason for the delay may not be what you may have expected.

    Considering that Project Cars was set for a release in November, it's understandable to think that Bandai Namco may have wanted to push it back a month or two, simply because there are just so many other games planned for release next month. (Call of Duty, Halo, GTA V, to name a few..)

    However, Bandai have taken the plunge to release the game next year instead, and their reason behind this involves both wanting to stay away from the huge competition in November, and to have more time to fine tune the title.

    "Our goal has always been to deliver a landmark title that encompasses the wishes and desires of racing fans from all around the world; something with features and content powered by the community that provide a truly unforgettable and pioneering experience," Ian Bell of Slightly Mad Studios revealed.
    "Whilst a tough decision to make, the change in release date allows the game the greatest chance of success and visibility, and the opportunity to polish the game even further to the high standards that both ourselves and our community demand and expect. We're eager for you all to see what we've been working on in just a few months."

  • Loyalty Rewards and Car Details for Forza Horizon 2 Revealed

    forza horizon 2 car listThe Forza franchise has now been out for so long that Turn 10 have managed to amass a rather large collection of cars that they have been able to move into each game quite easily. This year, Forza Horizon 2 is set for launch, and Turn 10 have just revealed details on the amount of cars we can expect from the game, as well as any rewards players can receive from the monthly loyalty program.

    Whilst Turn 10's previous game, Forza Motorsport 5, was filled with microtransactions that allow players to purchase new cars, Forza Horizon 2 has much less of that, and instead has a much larger free collection of cars. In total, players will be given access to a huge range of 210 free vehicles in Forza Horizon 2, and it's expected that future DLC will add even more cars to the game.

    On top of this, Turn 10 revealed the Forza loyalty program that will reward loyal players with monthly awards. Don't worry, you won't have to spend any money to be a part of the Forza loyalty program. Instead, you'll just need to spend a certain amount of time within Forza games each month.

    Players will also be able to complete objectives in Forza Horizon 2 to receive rewards, and in total, five new cars can be rewarded from the loyalty program each month for completing objectives. Forza Horizon 2 will release on the 30th of this month for Xbox One and Xbox 360.

  • Forza Horizon 2 Map Looks Absolutely Massive

    forza horizon 2 map sizeNew images have surfaced of Forza Horizon 2, depicting the large world size we can expect to find in the game. Forza Horizon was the first time Turn 10 took the game to an open world platform, and whilst the concept was pretty neat for a Forza game, it wasn't all that it could be.

    This time round though, Forza Horizon 2 could be everything we could want from an open world racing sim, and the newly released pictures show off just how large the world will be in the new game.

    Turn 10 have taken inspiration from some of France's and Italy's most beautiful areas and combined them into one single open world area that expands to three times the size of the original Forza Horizon game.

    On top of having what we expect to be a set of incredible environments, Forza Horizon 2 will have a variety of different random weather effects that can change the road conditions and the overall appearance of the game. As you can see in the map picture shown above, a large amount of the world is base in rural environments instead of an urban setting like many tracks from previous Forza games.

    Obviously, on top of the absolutely huge open world map, Forza Horizon 2 will get treated to Turn 10's wide range of cars that have been slowly built up since the original Forza games. Expect 100's of cars, beautiful visuals and hours of great open world driving fun with Forza Horizon 2 - the game will be released on September 30th for Xbox One and Xbox 360.
