White Xbox One Controller Will Remain Exclusive to Console Bundles

Author: Brentt Moore

Currently, the only way to get a white Xbox One controller is with the exclusive Sunset Overdrive bundle, and according to executive Aaron Greenberg, that business decision will not change in the near future. While Microsoft does sell black and camouflaged-themed controllers that can be purchased separately, and has plans to offer a special Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Xbox One controller soon, Greenberg revealed on Twitter that the company is "Not planning white controllers at this time." Only time will tell if Microsoft will change its decision to sell a standalone white Xbox One controller, but in comparison, its competitor Sony currently offers black, camouflage, blue, red, and white DualShock 4 controllers for the PlayStation 4.

Electronic Arts has announced that its upcoming first-person shooter Battlefield Hardline will be arriving March 17, 2015 for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. While I'm sure a lot of people will just jump into the cops-vs-robber multiplayer action, Hardline does actually have a single-player component. "Miami is embroiled in a drug war and officer Nick Mendoza has just made detective. Alongside his partner, veteran detective Khai Minh Dao, he follows the drug supply chain from the streets to the source. In a series of increasingly off-the-books cases the two detectives come to realize that power and corruption can affect both sides of the law."

Unsurprisingly, Ubisoft has once again incorporated several NVIDIA GameWorks technologies into one of its titles. Today, Ubisoft released a new video that highlights the NVIDIA GameWorks features incorporated into the PC version of Assassin's Creed Unity. NVIDIA GeForce GTX users will have access to NVIDIA HBAO+, NVIDIA Percentage-Closer Soft Shadows, NVIDIA GeometryWorks Advanced Tessellation, and NVIDIA TXAA. Of course there's also 4K support, which NVIDIA users can take advantage of even without a 4K display thanks to Dynamic Super Resolution.

Assassin's Creed Unity will release on November 11 in North America and November 13 in EMEA territories for Windows PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. A Season Pass is also available with eight hours of additional content, including Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China, a unique 2.5D reimagining of the franchise.

Plague Inc. Sees Increased Sales Amid Real World Ebola Fears

As the world goes crazy over the Ebola epidemic, one game developer is reaping the rewards. Ndemic Creations has apparently seen a 50% uptick in downloads for Plague Inc. over the past two weeks. From October 10-16, the game was downloaded approximately 430,000 times on iPhone and Android with approximately 4 million total players during that week. It also soared to the top of the charts in the UK and US.

Released in 2012, Plague Inc. sees players infecting a Patient Zero before attempting to kill off all of humanity. Interestingly – and some may say disturbingly – many players are actually naming their in-game disease Ebola, which can result in messages such as "Ebola has successfully eliminated all life on Earth."

An enhanced and expanded version, entitled Plague Inc: Evolved, is currently available on Steam Early Access and will eventually make its way to Xbox One.

Dying Light Ditches Last-Gen; Coming to PC, PS4 & XBO Only

Category: Gaming
Posted: October 28, 2014 06:46PM
Author: ClayMeow


Developers of multi-platform games have had to make sacrifices trying to hold tight to eight-year-old technology. Thankfully, Techland has announced that it's ditching the last-gen consoles for its upcoming first-person, open-world survival horror game Dying Light. While you can probably assume the reasons behind the decision, Techland released an open letter to fans explaining the change:

Dear Gamers,
As you probably know, we’re wrapping up the development of Dying Light, our biggest and most ambitious project to date. We spent the last three years making sure that all the features of our game add up to create a truly next-gen experience.

Much of this “next-gen feel” is tightly connected to the technological side of Dying Light. For instance, up to 200 000 objects can be displayed in the game at once. Add to this our use of realistic, physics-based lighting technology and you really start to push the next-gen systems to the limits. Features like these along with our core gameplay pillars – such as the player-empowering Natural Movement, threefold character development system, and vast open world – are all an inherent part of how Dying Light plays. However, combining all of these into one fluid experience is only possible on technologically advanced platforms.

Therefore, after thorough internal testing, we have come to the conclusion that we have no choice but to leave past-gen systems behind and release Dying Light exclusively on the next-gen consoles and PC. Put simply, older consoles just couldn’t run the game and stay true to the core vision of Dying Light at the same time.

To ensure you enjoy Dying Light as much as we would like you to, we chose to release it without any compromises on the three strongest systems available. Thanks to this, you’ll get the full and best experience regardless of the platform you play on.

We hope you understand the hard choice we’ve had to make. With the launch just around the corner, we can’t wait to show you Dying Light in the state it was meant to be. We’re looking forward to your reactions and impressions as we release the game in January 2015.

Dying Light will launch January 27 in the Americas, January 28 in Australia and New Zealand, and January 30 in Europe and Asia; priced $49.99 for PC and $59.99 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Pre-ordering allows you to "Be The Zombie".

More than two years after its initial launch, MMORPG TERA is getting its first expansion, entitled Fate of Arun. TERA has received several updates over the years, as expected for an MMO, but Fate of Arun is by far the biggest update yet and certainly worthy of the "expansion" classification. Fate of Arun increases the level cap to 65, adds in the lands of Northern Arun with a brand-new storyline, and brings new quests, zones, dungeons, skills, gear, and a new PvP battleground.

TERA is available to download and play for free via the official site and will be coming to Steam later this year. There is no North American release date for Fate of Arun just yet, but it will also be free for everyone.

Explore the Midlands and Himalayas of Far Cry 4's Kyrat

Author: ClayMeow


Two weeks ago, Ubisoft released the first in a series of Far Cry 4 videos that introduces us to the various regions of Kyrat. While that first video focused on the Lowlands, the second video focuses on the Midlands and Himalayas. The Midlands are home to lush forests, exotic animals, and Kyrat's drug trade. The region is under the control of Dr. Noore Najjar, Vice Lord of Kyrat, who not only supervises the aforementioned drug trade, but also manages the brutal Shanath Arena, where gladiators face off against wolves and tigers to the death.

While the Midlands are certainly a dangerous place, they're nothing compared to the "wicked windswept peaks" of the Himalayas. Not only must you deal with the Royal Army's elite, ravenous wolves and show leopards, and frequent avalanches, but it's also home to the Sky Prison, a craggy gulag carved into the side of a mountain. The prison's warden is Yuma, a former triad gangster and commander of the Elite Royal Guard.

Far Cry 4 is set to release on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 on November 18. A Season Pass is also available, featuring a co-op escape from the aforementioned prison.

Titanfall's "Game Update Eight" Adding Three New Game Modes, Including Co-op Wave Defense

Category: Gaming
Posted: October 22, 2014 06:55PM
Author: ClayMeow


Respawn is about to unleash its biggest update ever for Titanfall, with the highlight being an all-new four-player co-op game mode called Frontier Defense. Playable on every map, including DLC maps, Frontier Defense sees you and your team battling increasingly intense waves of AI combatants, including: "hordes of Grunts and Spectres, stealthy Sniper Spectres and Cloak Drones, explosive Suicide Spectres and Nuclear Titans, ranged Mortar Titans, and even melee-resistant Arc Titans!" You can earn and deploy stationary turrets, as well as switch loadouts at new Loadout Crates.

While Frontier Defense is the only new game mode that will be available tomorrow when Game Update Eight goes live, it's not the only new game mode that will be coming to the game over the coming weeks. Deadly Ground will arrive November 5, which sees the ground covered in deadly, electrified fog in either Hardpoint, Capture the Flag, or Marked For Death. Meanwhile, Marked for Death Pro will arrive November 26, bringing "classic round-based intensity" to Marked for Death.

While new game modes are always the most exciting additions, there's a whole lot more being added in this free update. Ranked Play will enter beta tomorrow and last at least through the month, allowing Respawn to gather metrics needed to finalize details. All Gen 10 players receive beta access along with five invites to hand out to friends, earning an additional three invites each day. Capture the Flag is getting Sudden Death, where respawning is disabled. Each primary game mode of each map now have three stars to earn, providing additional challenges. There's now a full-screen map you can pull up if the mini-map is too small for you to coordinate with your team. And much more.

Lastly, there are also a bunch of improvements and optimizations, including new graphics settings for high-end PCs: HBAO and TXAA (2x or 4x). The latter requires an NVIDIA GPU.

Unveiled back in August, NeocoreGames' Deathtrap is now available for Windows PC via Steam Early Access for $19.99. Deathtrap is a tower defense game with action-RPG elements. NeocoreGames is best known for The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing series, which is an action-RPG series that has tower-defense mini-games, so the studio is already familiar with melding both genres together.

The game features three diverse classes (Mercenary, Sorceress, and Marksman), which can be leveled to 100 and feature more than 50 skills apiece. Aside from your hero, you also have access to 25 deadly traps with more than 150 trap upgrades, which you'll certainly need to tackle the 40+ different types of invaders across three races. If that's not enough, there's a map editor and monster editor with Steam Workshop support, and there's single-player, co-op, and PvP modes.

Ubisoft Launches New Far Cry 4 Experiential Website

Author: ClayMeow


What are you made of? That's the question Ubisoft asks with its new experiential website for Far Cry 4, "designed to test the player's reactions in a world full of unpredictability." The site offers a cinematic experience where players must complete four different rites of passage: a deadly face-to-face encounter with "An eye for an eye"; an impenetrable mind maze with "Rabbit hole"; a hypnotic trance with "Mind Blossom"; and a blindfolded sound chase with "Escape".

Each rite will be released on a weekly basis and provide players only a few seconds to make a decision to get out of an extreme situation. "Each choice they make triggers another sequence of events, pushing the user to make another choice and so on and so forth." Ubisoft claims there are up to 42 million different routes in total, which would require 100 days to explore every combination.

Most intriguing is that players' choices will be analyzed to determine their "personality", which in turn will unlock exclusive content for Far Cry 4 via Uplay. The new experience is available from the current site, but it doesn't seem to be live just yet.

Far Cry 4 is set to release on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 on November 18.

After a little break to reveal the PC requirements and an Official Trailer for Dragon Age: Inquisition, Electronic Arts and BioWare are back with another entry in the "Gameplay Features" video series. Entitled "The Inquisitor & Followers", I'm sure you can imagine what it discusses. As "The Hero of Thedas", you can make your Inquisitor into a deadly warrior, stealthy rogue, or powerful mage, each one with unique and deadly specializations as you progress. Along your travels, you'll get to recruit nine potential followers, three of which are highlighted in the video: The Iron Bull, a powerful warrior who relishes close-quarters combat; Sera, a chaotic elven archer who can dish out deadly ranged attacks; and Dorian, a gifted mage who uses arcane magic to protect the party.

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. Pre-ordering either version grants you some nice fiery weapons from the Flames of the Inquisition Arsenal.

According to today's update post, Uber stated that every Kickstarter prediction model showed the studio coming up "woefully short" of the campaign goal, making it not worth the costs to maintain the campaign any longer. "One thing is for sure, Human Resources, as pitched in this Kickstarter, is over. But we adore the world of Human Resources and will endeavor to do what we can to bring it to life in some form."

Human Resources sounded and looked quite intriguing, so hopefully this isn't the last we've seen of it.

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.
