Far Cry 4 Season Pass Features Yetis and a Prison Escape

Author: ClayMeow


Ubisoft has unveiled the Season Pass contents for Far Cry 4, and while it doesn't offer up the insane variety seen in Assassin's Creed Unity's Season Pass, it does allow you to hunt yetis; so you know, it does have that going for it. The Season Pass is broken up into five parts:

 

  • The Syringe – The day-one Season Pass exclusive mission will have you preventing Pagan Min from retrieving a rare recipe and using it against the rebellion. Take on The Syringe in either single-player or co-op.
  • Escape from Durgesh Prison – Team up with a friend to escape Yuma’s prison after being locked up and tortured. Fun stuff.
  • Hurk Deluxe Pack – More harpooning. More explosions. More Hurk. More awesome. Get access to five new missions starring Hurk, including Yak Farm, Blood Ruby and Hurk’s Redemption. We just love this crazy country boy so much.
  • Overrun – Play as either the Rakshasa or the Golden Path in this new PvP multiplayer mode. Capture territory around Kyrat and stop that territory from being taken by your enemies.
  • Valley of the Yetis – A crash landing on a Himalayan ridge finds Ajay fighting for his life in a strange new frozen landscape. Scavenge for tools and upgrade your campsite, while fending off deadly nighttime attacks from a mysterious cult. Explore caves in the area, but watch out for what lurks within. Valley of the Yetis has both single-player and co-op options, so it might be wise to bring a friend along to watch your back.

The Far Cry 4 Season Pass is priced at $29.99, but a Far Cry 4 Gold Edition that contains the base game and Season Pass together is also available for $89.99, which doesn't actually provide a further discount since the base game is priced at $59.99. Far Cry 4 is set to release on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 on November 18.

ACE Team's side-scrolling fighting game Abyss Odyssey launched in July and received a fairly good reception. The combat takes some getting used to, but the art style and soundtrack are simply amazing. While the game is available on consoles, the PC is the preeminent version with its inclusion of Versus Mode. Now Versus Mode is even better with the introduction of the much anticipated Online Versus Mode for up to four players. The new update also adds mid-combo transformation for even more complex combat techniques, a new enemy called the White Phantom, and Zeno Class II's Golem as a new boss. As a bonus, Golem is playable in Versus for owners of Zeno Clash II or the Abyss Odyssey Soundtrack on Steam.

Back in August 2012, Moon Spider Studio announced its debut title, Harold. Then, silence. Now, over two years later and after four years of development, the indie studio is finally revealing more of its platformer racing game – a game where you don't actually control the character, but rather the environment around him.

While originally scheduled for PC and consoles in 2013, Harold is now a PC exclusive, planned to release later this year. The game features twelve distinct courses and three unique game modes.

Giant Killer Robots and Ancient Tentacled Creatures Battle it Out in Uber Entertainment's Human Resources

Category: Gaming
Posted: October 18, 2014 06:40PM
Author: ClayMeow


After a highly successful Kickstarter campaign came to an end on September 14, 2012, Planetary Annihilation exited Steam Early Access and officially launched on September 5, 2014. Now developer Uber Entertainment is back on Kickstarter with yet another real-time strategy game, but one that bears little resemblance to Planetary Annihilation, except maybe the robots. Human Resources is a real-time strategy game exclusively for PC "that puts you in command of apocalyptic factions vying to conquer the drifting remains of a shattered Earth." Those factions include ancient squid monsters from another dimension and giant killer robots. There's no human faction because, well, they're your resource.

The story behind Human Resources is quite unique. As the human race is wont to do in any sci-fi story, they are responsible for the apocalypse that has befallen them. It all began when newly-sentient automated factories started churning out waves of giant robots known as Machines, hell-bent on dismantling and recylcing all of mankind. In a last-ditch effort to save themselves from the Machines, humans decide to invoke the tentacled Ancient Ones. What could possibly go wrong? Oh wait, I know – the Ancient Ones now compete with the Machines to consume the last remains of Earth. It's a lose-lose situation for mankind. Don't think that these will be the only two factions in the game though – Uber plans on adding more asymmetric factions based on community feedback during development.

Up to eight players can duke it out on procedurally generated "floating fragments of Earth as they are ripped from the planet and pulled toward the waiting mouths of god-sized faction leaders." Each battlefield is full destructible, allowing players to not only uproot buildings and use them as giant clubs, but also decimate the terrain beneath them by boring giant holes in the ground or cutting the Earthshard in two. A single game may also encompass more than one Earthshard.

While the premise alone sounds pretty sweet, I think I'm actually more impressed by the game's visual style. This may be a post-apocalyptic game, but it's as far from gray and drab as can be. Using a unique cel-shaded, comic-style aesthetic, Human Resources is colorful and gorgeous.

Uber Entertainment is seeking $1,400,000 in its Kickstarter Campaign, which is actually $500,000 more than the initial goal for Planetary Annihilation, but still shy of its eventual pull of $2.2+ million. According to Uber, the higher goal is simply because Human Resources requires a lot more content – "more animation, more effects, more organic art, more everything!"  And for those Planetary Annihilation fans who may be worried that Uber is moving on from that game, no need to fret – Human Resources is being built by a separate team than the one that is currently working on and will continue to work on Planetary Annihilation.

If you're interested in backing Human Resources, the lowest tier is a mere $20. Beta access can be had at the $40 tier, which also comes with $50 in-game credit for Uber's Super Monday Night Combat. Alpha access requires a mininum pledge of $90, but not only comes with that same SMNC in-game credit, but also a copy of Planetery Annihilation. If you're interested in various physical rewards, you'll have to fork over a minimum of $125, with Uber's reasoning being that fulfillment and shipping costs would be too cost prohibitive below that point. Of course, there are several other tiers in-between and after, so check out the Kickstarter page below to find one that best suits your desires. The Kickstarter Campaign ends on Tuesday, November 4, 2014 at 4:00PM EDT. It's still over $1 million away from its goal, so get cracking and help spread the word!

Human Resources is currently planned exclusively for Windows, though I wouldn't be surprised to see Mac and Linux/SteamOS versions in the future considering Uber is using the same core engine as the one used for Planetary Annihilation. It's obviously too early to tell for system requirements, but we do know that the game will support English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, and Korean languages, with other languages possible as time and funding permits.

Microsoft Studios and 343 Industries, in conjunction with Vanguard Games, have announced top-down shooter Halo: Spartan Strike, the spiritual successor to Halo: Spartan Assault.

There will also be weekly challenges with leaderboards, and players can earn Xbox achievements that unlock content for Xbox One's upcoming Halo: The Master Chief Collection.

Despite the Xbox One unlocks, Halo: Spartan Strike is exclusive to Windows 8 devices, coming to Windows 8/8.1 Phone, Windows 8/8.1, and Steam on December 12 for $5.99. Supported controls include keyboard and mouse, USB Xbox controller, and touch-controls using a virtual joystick.

Ubisoft Staff Reportedly Say Console Manufacturers Urge Lower Graphics on PC

Category: Gaming
Posted: October 16, 2014 12:01PM
Author: Guest_Jim_*

As an avid PC gamer, this is not the kind of news you may want to hear. According to a post on Reddit, some Ubisoft engineers were going to visit a school and answer some questions, so naturally the poster invited suggestions for questions. Among the questions were some concerned with the performance and features of games released for PC and console. One of the questions got the answer that prior to release, the console manufacturers receive a copy of the game and then let Ubisoft know "what to keep and what to throw away." For 30 FPS versus 60 FPS gameplay, a Game Architect answered that while they do target 60 FPS, limitations force them to settle on 30 FPS. The poster then said, "He (the Game Architect) then implied that console makers are pressuring them into doing the same thing on PC."

While there may be more to this than these answers provide, the prospect that the console manufacturers are influencing PC versions of games negatively is not very reassuring. It is definitely worth giving the sources a read, if you are interested in this, to see the other questions and answers.

Erich Schaefer and Travis Baldree have sure been around the block. Before teaming up to found Runic Games and develop the highly successful Torchlight series, the two worked on several projects. Schaefer co-founded Blizzard North and worked on the Diablo series, then left that to co-found Flagship Studios and made Hellgate: London. Baldree developed Fate at WildTangent, then worked with Schaefer on Mythos at Flagship Studios. Now the two are at it again, having left Runic Games in April to found Double Damage Games. Today, the studio announced its first game, Rebel Galaxy.

"Rebel Galaxy is an action-packed, swashbuckling space opera. You'll battle pirates, explore anomalies, befriend aliens, scavenge battle wreckage, mine asteroids, and discover artifacts. Choose your path as a roguish do-gooder, crafty space-trader or power-hungry privateer - or maybe a little of each! Buy larger and more powerful craft with your hard-earned credits, and outfit them with a variety of wicked weapons and defenses. Set in a galaxy of fantastic sights, and secrets to be found, Rebel Galaxy is above all a space epic of adventure, exploration, and combat."

Rebel Galaxy is slated to arrive in 2015 for PC (via Steam) and PlayStation 4, with Xbox One also a possibility.

Electronic Arts and BioWare have released a new trailer for Dragon Age: Inquisition, entitled "The Hero of Thedas", with the entire thing created using actual gameplay.

Of course, if you want to play it in all its glory, be sure to check out the PC requirements.

Dragon Age: Inquisition will launch on November 18 in North America and November 21 in Europe for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.

I cannot say I expected this, as the time for a new Humble Bundle came around today. The company known for selling bundles of indie games and more with a pay-what-you-want model, has just launched the Humble Mozilla Bundle. Of course Mozilla does not develop games, it develops a browser. A browser that we can play games in, and with the bundle you can own up to eight different games, from Zen Bound 2 to FTL: Advanced Edition.

Once purchased, all of the games can be played in a modern browser, such as Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome, or you can download DRM-free versions for Windows, Mac, or Linux. Most also come with Steam keys and Super Hexagon is even available on Android. Want to know more about the games before making a purchase? Demo versions can be played, from your browser, right on the Humble Bundle homepage.

As usual, part of each purchase can go to charity, and this bundle has three charities to donate to: the Mozilla Foundation, CodeNow, and the Make Education Initiative. Also there is going to be another game added to the bundle soon.

Author: ClayMeow

If you want to play one of the most highly anticipated games of the year the way it's meant to be played, you're going to want to grab the PC version and make sure you system is up to snuff. Electronic Arts has revealed the PC system requirements for Dragon Age: Inquisition, and it's actually not too bad...

Recommended:
OS: Windows 7 or 8.1 64-bit
CPU: AMD six core CPU @ 3.2 GHz, Intel quad core CPU @ 3.0 GHz
System RAM: 8 GB
Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD 7870 or R9 270, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660
Graphics Memory: 2 GB
Hard Drive: 26 GB
DirectX 11

Minimum:

System RAM: 4 GB
Graphics CARD: AMD Radeon HD 4870, NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT
Graphics Memory: 512 MB
Hard Drive: 26 GB
DirectX 10

Along with the system requirements, EA posted an article discussing the PC version of the game, ensuring us that "BioWare is a developer whose roots are in PC gaming, [so] you can bet this version of Inquisition is the real deal." The game has been fine-tuned for keyboard and mouse play, features a ton of visual and interface options to tweak, supports 4K resolution, and supports AMD Mantle. The Xbox 360 controller is officially supported as well, if you'd inexplicably rather use that.

If you've never played a Dragon Age game, you can grab Dragon Age: Origins for FREE on Origin as part of the current On the House offering. Just be forewarned: if you're a completionist, a single playthrough can take 100+ hours. Totally worth it though.

Dragon Age: Inquisition will launch on November 18 in North America and November 21 in Europe for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. The Standard Edition costs $59.99 for all platforms, while a Deluxe Edition is available for $69.99 and includes the following bonus content: Flames of the Inquisition Armor, Flames of the Inquisition Armored Mount, Skyhold Throne, Red Hart Halla, Bog Unicorn, and the digital soundtrack.

Tripwire Interactive announced Killing Floor 2 back in May, promising more guns, more perks, more skills, more guns, a higher level cap, and enhanced gore. The latter is a major emphasis, with Tripwire creating the most complicated gore system in gaming called MEAT (Massive Evisceration and Trauma). We've seen a lot of great screenshots, but now we finally get the first look at some actual gameplay thanks to a new Dev Diary video, entitled "The Gore Part 1".

Killing Floor 2 has no ETA, but will be making its way to Steam Early Access eventually.
