  • Next Battlefield is Being Developed

    battlefield 5 developed

    Now that DICE has been hired to work on Battlefront, a lot of Battlefield fans have understandably been concerned about the future of the Battlefield series. Fortunately there's a lot of good news as far as new Battlefield development goes. On a new Twitter post, DICE's development director Dan Vaderlind revealed that he has now left the Battlefront team to focus on their next game, which will be a Battlefield title.

    Whilst there will still be a team at DICE dedicated to Battlefront, the main focus at DICE will now be towards developing the next Battlefield game. Considering that Battlefield 4 launched with a number of issues and DICE asked Visceral Games to help with Hardline, there's definitely a lot of anticipation on how DICE will deliver the next Battlefield title. No launch date has been set for Battlefield 5, (Or whatever else it may be called.) and we currently have no promotional material out of DICE's offices yet, but it's suggested that the game will be launched in 2016. It is confirmed that the next Battlefield will return to its military roots, dropping the cops and criminals theme.

    Currently DICE's latest title is of course Battlefront. Recently DICE launched the first DLC map for Battlefront, which included the Battle of Jakku map. Unlike future DLC, the Battle of Jakku was placed up for all players for free and it is not included as part of the season pass. With that being said, season pass owners did get a small head start on the new map.

  • Battlefield Hardline Delayed to 2015

    hardline delay 2015Despite releasing a new Battlefield title every year for the past few years, Visceral Games and EA have made the collective decision to push back the release of Battlefield Hardline, breaking the current annualization of the franchise and offering the developers more time to iron out any kinks with the game in it's current state.

    The reason behind the delay is primarily down to a range of new inspiration that has led Visceral Games back to the drawing board, thanks to the community's input from the recent Battlefield Hardline multiplayer beta.

    Visceral Games recently made a blog post on the EA Battlefield website to address the sudden launch date change, and details of that post can be read below.

    1. Multiplayer Innovation: Coming out of our E3 beta, internal focus tests, and work with our community, we have received a lot of great Multiplayer thinking. We're going to be adding some new feature ideas direct from the community that will evolve the cops and criminals fantasy into a truly unique Battlefield Multiplayer experience.
    2. Single Player Story Depth: In order to ensure our Single Player experience delivers on player expectations, we're spending more time polishing our core features, as well as adding a few new ones that will support a deeper "crime revenge" story experience.
    3. Stability: This has been a focus for our team since day one and we're going to be using the extra time to continue to optimize the game for a stable launch. We have learned a lot from Battlefield 4, are continuing to learn from our Community Test Environment and will learn more from another Hardline beta. More time allows us to surface issues that the team can attempt to fix prior to launch.

  • In For a Scare? Dead Space 3 May be the Most On-Edge Experience in the Series to Date

    Dead Space 3 Info

    Recent gameplay footage of Dead Space 3 has been released by Visceral Games, the team behind the Dead Space series, and it's looking to be the most exhilarating gameplay footage yet. The developers have managed to capture amazing scenes within a dark abandoned spaceship, relying on the weak light emitting from Isaac's suit and the inconsistent eerie background noises to create an atmosphere that's bound to get you on the edge of your seat.

    The realistic body animations and interactions within the hazardous ship innards make it feel more than a video game, putting you right into an experience equivalent to a bid-budget horror movie. For the most part you won't be able to see what's in the dark, and that's what keeps your adrenaline pumping.

    You'll be put through gory low-lit battles with creepy space creatures and while Isaac is forced to make risky heart-pumping decisions throughout the cut scenes in the game. The story is dark and compelling, and you'll fear for Isaac's life every step of the way.

    The weapons will be bigger and better in the new Dead Space, adding new customization options within your arsenal, but along with the bigger, better guns, you can expect bigger stronger enemies. Dead Space 3 will be more frightful than ever.

    The new gameplay shows that Dead Space 3 is looking close to completion, and Visceral Games and EA have set the release date to February 2013. Can't wait that long? Use our Controller Creator to make a custom controller that fits at home in the Dead Space Universe and play through the previous Dead Space titles one more time.
