  • Rune: Ragnarok Is A New Upcoming Open World RPG

    rune ragnarok new open world gameHuman Head, the same development team as Prey and Prey 2, is now working on a brand new open world RPG game called Rune: Ragnarok.

    Surprisingly, Rune: Ragnarok isn't the first Rune game in the franchise. In fact, Human Head created a game called Rune that released way back in 2000.

    It looks like Rune: Ragnarok will be the game to revitalize that universe in an exciting new way. So far, we know very little about Rune: Ragnarok other than that the development team is working on it, and it'll be released some point in the future.

    No details on release windows or gameplay reveal trailers have yet been mentioned.

    We do have a single non-gameplay reveal trailer though. In the reveal trailer the narrator is heard saying the following:

    "From birth, the children of the North hear tales of the end of the world. A battle so great the gods fall and the Nine Worlds are consumed by frost and fire. But these tales are false. The gods did not perish. For seven years our worlds have been devoured by death and destruction. Now, mankind must rise and do what the gods could not. Ragnarok must end."

    We don't have any information about which platforms the new Ragnarok game will be launched on, but Human Head does mention on their website that they work on PC, consoles, VR, and mobile devices. Hopefully, Rune Ragnarok will get a launch on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. We may even see some VR-related gameplay if we're lucky.

  • Mass Effect Andromeda Announcement; Game Delayed

    mass effect andromeda

    You may have been hoping to see Mass Effect Andromeda release this year but unfortunately Bioware has had to push back the release date. Whilst this delay may come as bad news to some, it is ultimately for the better and it'll ensure that when the gigantic open universe game gets a release it will be more featured packed, more fine tuned and more diverse.

    Bioware announced the game delay in a new blog post. Whilst the main announcement in the blog post is about the delay, the blog also talks about the future of Mass Effect Andromeda and it's current stage in development.

    Firstly, Mass Effect Andromeda has been delayed to 'early 2017.' Whether we get this in the first quarter or second quarter of 2017 hasn't been mentioned, but we highly expect it to be the first quarter.

    Secondly, Bioware goes on to mention some of the things to expect from Andromeda. We have listed the highlights below.

    + More Freedom: One of our biggest ambitions is to give players an unprecedented level of freedom for a Mass Effect experience where you'll go, how you'll get there, and how you'll play.

    + New Uncharted Worlds: We're leaving the Milky Way behind and headed to Andromeda, where we'll meet new allies, confront new enemies, and explore fascinating new worlds.

    + The Next Great Mass Effect Experience: Mass Effect: Andromeda will be the first Mass Effect game for today's consoles and the first built on the Frostbite engine. We're pushing the technology to deliver visuals, story, and gameplay that have never been done in franchise history.

  • Fallout 4 soundtrack Will Have 65 Songs, Available on iTunes

    fallout 4 soundtrack

    It has been revealed that Fallout 4 will have a total of 65 different songs on it's soundtrack. All of the 65 tracks on the soundtrack have been composed by Inor Zur specifically for the Fallout 4 game. The main menu music for Fallout 4 was already revealed before, but a lot of the music in the soundtrack has not yet been heard.

    On top of revealing the 65 tracks on the Fallout 4 soundtrack, Bethesda has put up the soundtrack on iTunes for $16. So far, Bethesda has not revealed any plans to publish the soundtrack on other places, such as Soundcloud, Spotify, TIDAL, YouTube, Google Play Music or other spaces. That isn't to say that Bethesda won't publish the soundtrack on somewhere other than iTunes, but for right now, the only space to get it is on iTunes.

    Whilst the full soundtrack costs $15.99, if you would like to, you can purchase separate tracks for $0.99 each - if you'd just like your favorite tracks, such as the main menu theme, then you'll be able to save some cash by only purchasing the tracks you'd like to hear. Alternatively, you could wait for the release of Fallout 4 and hear the music in the game as you play through it.

    Fallout 4 is set for release on November 10. Once released, the game will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Will you be playing Fallout 4 on launch day?

  • Cyberpunk 2077 Will be Next CD Projekt Red Game

    cyberpunk 2077

    After the huge success of The Witcher 3, there is no doubt that a lot of Witcher fans are wondering exactly what developer and publisher CD Projekt Red will be planning next. Well, the next game that CD Projekt Red will be putting their effort into once The Witcher 3 is all done and dusted is Cyberpunk 2077, another huge RPG title that's set in a futuristic environment instead of a fantasy one.

    In fact, as it currently stands, most of the staff at CD Projekt Red are now working on Cyberpunk 2077 - this information was recently revealed by the development team themselves.

    The Witcher 3 was a huge project in itself, but it already had it's own lore and world to be based upon. With Cyberpunk 2077, a lot of it is being created from the ground up, and despite that, it sounds like it could be at least as big as The Witcher 3.

    "We are focusing on Cyberpunk 2077. It is a very ambitious and big project, and we need all the people we can get to finish it. A lot of the people in the company are working on it, and more and more are getting involved in it. Most people from the company are involved with it."

    Whilst we don't know much about Cyberpunk 2077 just yet, CD Projekt Red has previously suggested that the game will be far, far bigger than The Witcher 3. Hopefully we'll hear more progress on Cyberpunk 2077 in the near future.

  • Bloodborne Game of the Year Edition Coming

    bloodborne goty

    Just after the Dark Souls 3 network test, From Software had some more news to share. The news was posted to the PlayStation blog, where it was revealed that the development studio will be working with Sony to release a game of the year edition of Bloodborne.

    The new game of the year edition will be available both in-store and online from November 27. If you haven't yet had the chance to play Bloodborne, the new game of the year edition will give you a good chance to check it out. As you could have expected, the new edition will include the base Bloodborne game and a copy of the upcoming DLC expansion.

    The DLC expansion for Bloodborne is called The Old Hunters and it includes a huge amount of new content to the game. In Sony's new blog post, The Old Hunters was described as the DLC expansion to "challenge players to explore entirely new environments, including a monolithic clock tower, filled with Bloodborne's traditional blend of risk, reward and frightening boss encounters."

    Sony further went to describe The Old Hunters in their blog post about the game of the year edition of Bloodborne. Considering that the DLC expansion is the only selling point of the new version over the original copy of the game, Sony's done a good job to convince players to purchase it.

    "In addition to new environments, you'll also gain access to new outfits and weapons to bolster your beast-battling arsenal, including a fearsome new ranged weapon called Simon's Bowblade. On top of this, The Old Hunters also offers players the ability to go native and transform into terrifying beasts."

    If you already own Bloodborne it would work out cheaper to purchase the DLC on it's own, but if you do not yet, the game of the year option would be cheaper than purchasing both the DLC and a new copy of Bloodborne.

  • New Fallout 4 Pip-Boys On Sale

    fallout 4 pip-boys

    After going a couple of months without any stock in sight, Bethesda suddenly announced new stock for the Fallout 4 Pip-Boy edition. In the past, the Pip-Boy collector's edition of Fallout 4 sold incredibly quickly.

    It is expected that demand for the Pip-Boy edition this time round will be just as high or even higher than before so it's best that you act quickly if you'd like to have the chance of purchasing the collector's edition.

    The new stock of the Pip-Boy edition is only available from Bethesda's official store. The version on the store is available for $120, just like everywhere else. Because of the huge demand, Bethesda could probably get away with selling the version for $300, but it's good to see that the price has stayed at $120.

    Now that the launch of Fallout 4 is so close, it's likely that this new set of stock for the Pip-Boy edition will be the last chance for Fallout fans to get their hands on the version of Fallout 4. Once this stock has gone, fans will have to look on auction sites or hope that their local retailer has managed to bag some copies.

    The new Pip-Boy stock includes versions for the Xbox One, the PlayStation 4 and the PC - all prices are still $120. In the Pip-Boy edition of Fallout 4, buyers are given a large Pip-Boy device which can be used in conjunction with a smartphone and the Fallout 4 smartphone companion app.

  • Fallout 4 Details Shared on Twitter

    Fallout 4 Details

    Fallout's Pete Hines has taken to Twitter to answer a few questions from Fallout 4 fans. As a result, we've managed to learn a few things about romance options, Fallout 3 on the PlayStation 4, and more details about the wasteland.

    One PlayStation 4 owner asked whether Fallout 3 was going to make it's way to the PS4. He asked this question because it was recently confirmed that Fallout 3 will soon be playable on the Xbox One. Pete Hines responded by saying that Bethesda haven't worked to put Fallout 3 on the Xbox One but instead have simply allowed Microsoft the rights to make Fallout 3 backwards compatible.

    For that reason, if the PS4 were to be backwards compatible as well then players would also be able to play Fallout 3 on the PlayStation 4. As it stands right now, however, only the Xbox One can play Fallout 3 via the Xbox 360 version of the game.

    Further through the week Pete Hines mentioned that players will not be able to build settlements anywhere within the Wasteland. There will be specific areas where building will be possible but outside of these areas  building will be prohibited. From a game mechanic standpoint, this makes sense. It would be potentially game breaking if players could build absolutely anywhere.

    Another fan asked how players would be able to get in and out of the PowerSuit. Hines responded with, "you put it on/off by stepping in and out of it. The garage key art is a not-so-subtle hint as well."

    Fallout 4 will be available on November 10, 2015.

  • Witcher 3 1.08 Patch Incoming

    witcher 3 1.08

    The Witcher 3 will be getting another large patch in the near future and it will include a number of gameplay changes. The latest upcoming update is patch 1.08 and CD Projekt Red has talked a little bit about what the patch will consist of.

    Whilst CD Projekt Red hasn't yet given a release date, the developer has mentioned that the update is "coming soon." Whilst all platforms are getting the same treatment in terms of new patches, the newest updates often make their way to PC first, and are then released on console after they go through an approval process.

    Perhaps the most exciting change in patch 1.08 is the inclusion of "preparatory changes" for the New Game Plus mode. Whilst New Game Plus won't be added in 1.08, CD Projekt Red are leading up to releasing it.

    Other than various fixes and tweaks, the mean changes are within the gameplay section of the patch notes and they can be read below.


    • Fixes a rare issue where items would disappear from the stash.
    • Fixes a very rare issue which would cause Geralt to get stuck when trying to run.
    • The interaction pop-up will no longer appear on lootable objects that are empty.
    • Fixes an occasional glitch in one of the dwarf combat animations.
    • Heads chopped off during finishers will no longer disappear.
    • Players can perform a roll just before landing to significantly reduce the damage caused by falling.
    • We've added a tutorial pop-up window explaining this to make it clearer.
    • In patch 1.07, the level requirements for certain items were scaled up, leaving some players stuck with only unusable gear. With patch 1.08, we are introducing the Wolven Hour potion. This potion will be available in everyone's inventory once they install the patch. It will reduce level requirements on all gear for a period of one hour. This will give players time to level up or find alternative equipment using the gear that was available to them in patch 1.05 but became unusable after patch 1.07. After one hour, the potion's effects will cease and the requirements for all gear will revert to their original, pre-potion values.
    • Fixes an issue where players were unable to compare their items with ones sold by merchants.
  • Final Fantasy VII Remake Announced

    Final Fantasy VII Remake

    It's been expected for some time now, but the Final Fantasy VII remake has finally been officially confirmed. It's almost been two decades since the game originally released on the PlayStation 1 back in 1997. Final Fantasy VII was seen as an instant classic upon its release and it's one of the most sought after PS1 games today.

    In 1997 it gained awards for being the best console role playing game of the year and the best console adventure game of the year, and managed to sell over 2 million copies, which is considered very impressive at the time.

    Rumors of a remake of Final Fantasy VII have been spreading for ages, but Square Enix has kept it very secret. The developer and publisher has not said a word about it and no real leaks have ever made it to the light of day. It was a surprise last week to finally hear that Square Enix will be reimagining Final Fantasy VII.

    Unfortunately no release details have been given yet, but a timed exclusivity deal with Sony has been shared with the public so the Final Fantasy VII remake will only be for the PlayStation 4 for a certain period of time.

    Neither Square Enix nor Sony has revealed when Final Fantasy VII's exclusivity deal will end, so if you really want to play the remake there will be no reason to hold your breath if you don't own a PlayStation 4.

    The remake will also be coming to iOS devices, most likely at some point this summer. The PS4 version should be released in winter but a solid date hasn't been shared as of yet.

  • Far Cry 4 Complete Edition Planned

    far cry 4 complete editionThe whole DLC debacle definitely leaves a lot of room for debate, but if you're patient with buying games you can often get great deals on DLC. In fact, most publishers are now releasing "complete editions" roughly a year after the game release - these versions often cost the same price as the original game but they're also packed with all of the game's DLC.

    Ubisoft has been following this practice for a while, and their next compilation game set for release is Far Cry 4: Complete Edition.

    As expected, Far Cry 4 Complete Edition will come with the full game and all five of the DLC expansions that were released as part of the game's season pass. The new complete edition will also have all of the extra missions, weapons and areas that may have been awarded to players in the past.

    Far Cry 4 Complete Edition is set for release on June 19. So far we don't know whether we'll see a physical release or not. It's entirely possible that the Complete Edition may only be available digitally.

    Either way, Ubisoft has shared some details about the Far Cry 4 complete pack that nobody was expecting. Ubisoft has stated that they "have no plans to release it on Xbox One."

    Considering that the main Far Cry 4 game was released on Xbox One, it seems odd that Ubisoft will now only be releasing the bundle pack to PlayStation 4 and PC. We've seen a lot of exclusivity deals for the PlayStation 4 recently, but Ubisoft are rarely ever the company to make such arrangements.
