CD PROJECT have today announced that they'll be delaying The Witcher 3 into 2015. Although there was never a firm release date for the project, it was expected to be in stores in time for Christmas.
There aren't many games that let you build up amazing rollercoaster rides that end with the track suddenly dropping out and the death of thousands of your guests. That's what makes Rollercoaster Tycoon such an important franchise. Because if you don't terrorize innocent avatars, who on earth will? It's been a while since the last outing was released - almost 10 years - so fans may be happy to learn that Atari are teasing a new entry in the series.
Warner Brothers yesterday officially announced Batman: Arkham Knight for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The next-gen only detective game will be a sequel to Arkham City, and will be the last game in the series. Arkham Knight will take place in Gotham City proper this time around, and you'll have access to the Batmobile to help you move from place to place. You'll be able to get into the Batsuit once again this year.
If you've played an AAA game in the last twelve months, there's a good chance you've come across the concept of the 'Season Pass'. This gives you an entire collection of DLC at a reduced price, usually the cost of one DLC pack. It started, among other places, with Call of Duty, and Infinity Ward alumni Respawn were expected to continue the trend. They won't be - Titanfall will not have a season pass.
Titanfall is an Xbox One exclusive (unless you have an Xbox 360 or PC). That's been a source of quiet disappointment for a lot of Sony-focussed arcade shooter fans with PlayStation 4s. It should be presumed that the biggest deciding factor behind the whole thing would be money, and yet Neogaf used Famousmortimer offers a slightly different look of things. Apparently the reason Titanfall ended up on Xbox One is because Sony was too quiet about what their plans for this generation were going ...
The last year has seen more than a few rumours involving Fallout 4. Not a single one of them has so far been proven to be true, with only the vaguer "confirmed at release" rumours still holding any water. It seems any troll with the capacity to purchase a website has looked to Bethesda as a source, perhaps because Fallout fans are so desperate to find out what's going to be coming next. They ought to prepare themselves for a long wait though - it seems Fallout 4 won't even be announced this ...
Square Enix have today confirmed to Eurogamer that the PlayStation 4 version of Thief will run at 1080p, whilst the Xbox One version will run at only 900p. It's a minor difference in actuality, and one that they say "you really need good eyes to see the difference."
You can now sign up to the Titanfall beta, EA have announced. If you go take a look at the official Titanfall website, you'll be lead through a process of getting onto a list for the beta. You can currently sign-up for the Xbox One or PC versions of the game. Both, unsurprisingly, require you to have an Origin account.
Last year's Arkham Origins was always going to be a filler game. As good as it was, it had the unpleasant task of being stuck between Arkham City and whatever Rocksteady are building for next-gen consoles. How could it compete with one of the best rated games of this generation and the sheer hardware of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One? Soon we'll get to see exactly what we're holding out for - it seems Rocksteady are gearing up for a big announcement.
uPlay seems to have avoided the majority of the hate that EA’s Origin seems to get, although that doesn’t mean it gets all that much love. It’s still frustrating to load a game in Steam, only to have an entirely new program pop up out of nowhere, requiring new updates and processes. That’s why it’s good news that South Part: The Stick of Truth will be entirely Steamworks.
This was confirmed by the official Obsidian Twitter account yesterday.
