HITMAN 2 First Elusive Target to Feature Sean Bean

Category: Gaming
Posted: October 17, 2018 07:55AM
Author: Guest_Jim_*


There is less than a month before HITMAN 2 releases and we now know the first elusive target will feature actor Sean Bean. He will be playing Mark Faba, a former MI5 agent who has since become a freelance assassin known as 'The Undying.' He has earned this title for his skill at faking his own death, but it has also led the International Contract Agency (ICA) to put a sizeable bounty on him.

Accompanying this announcement is a live-action YouTube video with Sean Bean as Faba describing how various items in the room with him can be made into weapons. The developers are looking for people to vote on which of the three shown, a toy robot, earbuds, or pen should become an actual weapon to unlock later in the game's campaign. Visit elusive-target.hitman.com to vote.

The Undying elusive target mission is scheduled to release on November 20, just one week after HITMAN 2 releases on November 13 and it will be available for 10 days. Players will need to stop Mark Faba before he can use his skills to complete his own contract.

HITMAN 2 Multiplayer Ghost Mode Revealed

Category: Gaming
Posted: October 12, 2018 11:42AM
Author: Guest_Jim_*


Today IO Interactive announced Ghost Mode for HITMAN 2, a 1v1 competitive multiplayer mode. With this, players will be put against each other as they both start each round under identical conditions and must then race to eliminate all of the targets, but spotted kills do not count. While both players are in the same map, their worlds are separate, so you alone will suffer whatever chaos you create. However, you will be able to see a ghost version of the other player, for keeping track of your opponent as you both try to eliminate your five targets.

HITMAN 2 releases on November 13 and initially Ghost Mode will only be available on the Miami location, but it will come to additional World of Assassination locations later.

Borderlands 2 VR Coming to PlayStation VR on December 14

Category: Gaming
Posted: October 9, 2018 07:56AM
Author: Guest_Jim_*


To mark the second anniversary of PlayStation VR, 2K and Gearbox Software announced today Borderlands 2 VR will be releasing on December 14, exclusively for PlayStation VR. Naturally this means players will get to enjoy the Borderlands 2 experience in virtual reality, but there will also be some changes to the new format. These changes include the addition of Bad Ass Mega Fun Time, or BAMF Time, that will slow time so you can set up your next attack. The four playable classes, Siren, Commando, Gunzerker, and Assassin, have also seen their skills updated for VR. Driving will now be first-person, allowing the player to steer and accelerate with the joystick while aiming the vehicle weapons with the headset. There is a choice of character movement methods too, between teleporting around like in many VR games or direct movement controlled by joysticks. Borderlands 2 VR is still going to be rated M for Mature by the ESRB, but will only be single-player.

Today Oculus introduced its next headset called the Oculus Quest. This new piece of hardware differs a fair amount from other offerings from the company, as it uses the company's Oculus Insight technology for inside-out tracking and the headset itself can power the experience, without the need of a computer or phone. You can put it on and have six degree-of-freedom tracking and tracking without other supporting hardware.

This Insight technology relies on four ultra wide-angle sensors to track your position using computer vision algorithms and supports Guardian, to keep you safe while wearing the headset. The headset uses the optics of the Oculus Go device with a display resolution of 1600x1440 per eye, and has lens spacing adjustment to improve visual comfort. The built-in audio has also been improved to provide higher quality sound.

The company is saying Oculus Quest will be available in Spring 2019 at a price starting at $399. This gets you a 64 GB version of the headset and Touch controllers. Oculus already has over 50 titles lined up for launch, including Robo Recall, The Climb, and Moss.

No, this is not April 1, but I think some may initially think it is. Ubisoft has announced it has worked with R/GA to create the Spartan skill for Amazon Alexa, allowing you to ask questions of your Echo devices and get the responses in the voice and swagger of a Spartan hero. Alexios will tell you the weather, a joke, and can add events to your calendar as well starting today, but come October 2, when those who pre-ordered the Gold Edition of the game get early access, you will be able to ask for historical information about various locations in Assassin's Creed Odyssey.

In addition to this Alexa skill, a limited edition Amazon Echo Plus has also been produced. This special version of the device is meant to resemble a Spartan helmet. If you want to try to win one of these devices, you will just need to share the video on Facebook, which you can find at the source link below, along with competition rules.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey releases on October 5 for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. If you are also looking for a new graphics card, AMD has its Raise the Game promotion going on currently that will get you this game along with Strange Brigade and Star Control: Origins, which releases on September 20, when you purchase an AMD RX 570, RX 580, RX Vega 56, or RX Vega 64 card.

In this game, players will follow Meve, a war-veteran queen of Lyria and Rivia who is now facing a Nilfgaardian invasion.

Also coming on October 23 is the Homecoming update for GWENT: The Witcher Card Game that will bring with it many significant changes. These changes will be to improve the game's elements as we originally saw them in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and to incorporate player feedback from the Public Beta. One of the changes we will see is a rework of the game's board to be 3D with two distinct rows for the battlefield. A redesign of the game's visuals to fit with the world of the Witcher, a new deck-building experience, and new card mechanics are also coming.

Next month Red Dead Redemption 2 will release for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and with luck we will see it announced for PC before long as well. In any case, Rockstar has put up a page introducing us to a number of the locations players will be visiting in the game with pictures and brief descriptions. These include Valentine, a rough-and-tumble town with livestock auctions that bring all manner of people to it looking for money and a good time. Annesburg is another town to visit and perhaps help the miners who lead hard lives on the little pay they earn bringing up coal from the pit. Saint Denis lies on a major trade route, so you will find many more cultures and classes here, from laborers and beggars to businessmen and socialites. Rhodes wishes it were as impressive, being prim and proper on the surface but filled with corruption and tensions below thanks to the Braithwaites and Grays, feuding plantation families. Strawberry, a logging town has a new mayor, hoping to make it a cultural beacon to bring in wealthy tourists. Among the snow-covered peaks of the Grizzlies of Ambarino is Mount Hagen that stands over Lake Isabela and Beartooth Beck, the main pass through to mountain range to meet the Dakota River. Finally, in Lagras the people take care of themselves largely, making little money from fishing and serving as guides for travelers.

Red Dead Redemption 2 releases October 26.

There will also be new monsters and mythical creatures coming with updates and a New Game Plus mode.

For those who are getting the Season Pass separately or as part of the Gold, Ultimate, Spartan, and Pantheon editions of the game, you will also get the two story arcs Legacy of the First Blade and The Fate of Atlantis as well as Assassin's Creed III Remastered and Assassin's Creed III Liberation Remastered. With the new version of Assassin's Creed III players will be getting all of its DLC and both remasters will feature improved graphics with support for 4K and HDR on capable platforms, higher-resolution textures, improved lighting, and more.

Circling back a bit, Legacy of the First Blade will allow the players to follow the adventure of the first hero to wield the hidden blade, the Assassin's iconic weapon. It will also explore why the Assassin's choose to keep to the shadows. Its episodes will start releasing in December and will be released about six weeks apart. With Fate of Atlantis players will face godly creatures and uncover the secrets of the legendary city in an adventure that will bring them closer to Greek mythology and the First Civilization. It will start releasing in Spring 2019, with episodes coming out about six weeks agpart.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey is set to release on October 5, but those who get the Gold, Collector's, or Ultimate Edition will have access starting October 2. The Season Pass, if purchased separately, will cost $39.99.
