Today Ubisoft shared the first details for Year 3 Season 4 of Rainbow Six Siege, Operation Wind Bastion. With this operation two new operators will be added, one attacker and one defender, both coming from the Kingdom of Morocco.

The full reveal for Season 4 content is coming on November 17, during the Pro League Finals.

Warcraft III Being Remastered and Destiny 2 Free to Claim Until November 18

Category: Gaming
Posted: November 3, 2018 07:01AM
Author: Guest_Jim_*

One of the first games I remember purchasing is Warcraft III: Battle Chest, a classic RTS that has, directly and indirectly, left a significant mark on the game's industry, and yesterday at BlizzCon Warcraft III: Reforged was announced. This will be a remaster of the original game Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos and its expansion The Frozen Throne with new versions of the games' art, in-game cinematics, integration with Blizzard Battle.net for multiplayer, and perhaps most importantly an overhauled World Editor. It was from the World Editor the mod Defense of the Ancient or DOTA was created. This remaster is to release next year.

Also announced yesterday is that Destiny 2 is temporarily a free gift to everyone on Blizzard Battle.net. If you log in on Battle.net and claim it until November 18, you will get to keep the game. If you do not already have a Battle.net account, you can still make one and claim the gift, but you also have the requirement of enabling Blizzard SMS Protect. For those of us who already have a copy of the game, we will be getting a special in-game emblem in December. Next weekend (November 9-11) all players will also get to try out the Gambit mode introduced with the Destiny 2: Forsaken expansion.

Retro FPS DUSK Exiting Early Access on December 10

Author: Guest_Jim_*


Initially released to Steam Early Access back in January, the retro first-person short DUSK will reach full-release on December 10. Currently two of the three campaign episodes for the game are in the Early Access version and for everyone who purchased the game before Halloween (today), the DUSK 50+ page graphic novel will be given to them for free.

DUSK takes inspiration from classic shooters like Doom, Quake, Blood, Heretic, and Half-Life while it challenges players with its multiple game modes and three-part campaign. Luckily you will have a collection of weapons to take advantage of, such as sickles, swords, crossbows, rifles, shotguns for dual-wielding, grenades, and rocket launchers. Among the game modes is Endless Survival Mode and an online multiplayer arena, DUSKWorld. To mark Halloween, it has also received an update with a third endless arena, a new multiplayer character, and full controller support.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Sets Entertainment Records

Category: Gaming
Posted: October 31, 2018 08:27AM
Author: Guest_Jim_*


This might not be too surprising to some, but Red Dead Redemption 2 set some records with its release, including having the single-biggest opening weekend of all entertainment media. It sold over $725 million worldwide in its first three days, which also makes it the second highest grossing entertainment launch in history, with only Grand Theft Auto V, another Rockstar Games title surpassing it at over $1 billion. (It may be worth noting that as the newer title released on a Friday, its opening weekend was also its first three days, while GTA V launched on a Tuesday.)

Sony also has shared some information for PlayStation Network, where Red Dead Redemption 2 was the most pre-ordered full game ever on the platform. It also set the highest day-one sales and highest first three days sales.

Now all we need to do is hope the game comes to PC, as it is currently only available on the PlayStation 4, as already mentioned, and Xbox One.

Author: Guest_Jim_*


In two weeks HITMAN 2 releases, so today IO Interactive and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment released the HITMAN Perfected trailer. This video shows off many of the game's new features, modes, upgrades, and content we can expect. The game's six locations, Hawke's Bay in New Zealand, Miami in the US, Santa Fortuna in Colombia, Mumbia in India, Whittleton Creek back in the US, and the Isle of Sgail in the North Atlantic are all shown too with their depth enabling greater freedom in how you approach each mission. Players can also expect a smarter combat AI, new mini-map, security camera grids, picture-in-picture replays, new tools, the ability to hide in crowds and foliage, the briefcase, and the ability to use mirror reflections strategically.

HITMAN 2 is also going to be the first game in the franchise to feature multiplayer modes. Sniper Assassin is a standalone mode that will allow two players to work together to take down their targets. Ghost Mode is a 1v1 competitive mode where players race against each other to complete objectives.

After the game launches on November 13 we can expect a flow of post-launch content to come including Escalations, Challenge Packs, Contracts, Elusive Targets and more. We already know the first Elusive Target will be Mark Faba, The Undying, played by Sean Bean. Faba is a former MI5 agent known for faking his own death. The Undying will challenge will release a week after launch, November 20, and be available for a limited time. Elusive Targets only afford the player one chance to eliminate their target, so if you are not successful, you will not get a retry.

Today it was announced that Through the Darkest of Times, developed by Paintbucket Games, will be published by HandyGames, a member of the THQ Nordic family. This title is set in 1933 Berlin, during the rise of the Nazi party and Adolf Hitler. It tries to set the mood of fear as people are harassed, imprisoned, and murdered for opposing the government or just being one of the many that do not fit in. The player will be the leader of a small resistance group, but its members are not trained for this. They are people of the Jewish Faith, Catholics, some are communists, and some are patriots who are against the new government. Still they will do what they can to chip at the regime, with leaflets to inform the people, painting messages on walls, sabotaging, and gathering information, but all of this must be accomplished in secret. If the regime learns of your group, everyone will be in great danger.

Through the Darkest of Times is currently expected to release for PC and Mac in 2019.

Late October is not only a time for costumes and candy but also special events in various video games. Today Ubisoft revealed the events coming to Rainbow Six Siege and For Honor, the Mad House and Return of the Otherworld respectively.

With the Mad House Halloween Event, Siege players will get to join a playlist with a selection of five attackers (Ash, Thermite, Buck, Hibana and Finka) and five defenders (Mira, Vigil, Valkyrie, Jager, and Pulse), all of which are available in Halloween skins. Last year's Halloween skins are also available again for a limited time. The map for this event is a Halloween version of the map "House." This event is only going on from October 25 to October 31, but if you log in from now until November 5 you will receive a Crimsonviel pack for free. You can get another if you reach 30 kills playing the Mad House map, and a second by reaching 60 kills. The Crimsonviel Collection is also available for purchase until November 5 and has 22 exclusive cosmetic items for Finka, Jager, Thermite, Valkyrie, and Vigil.

In For Honor the Return of the Otherworld event will run from today to November 8 and bring with it the return of the Endless March game mode and the start of Arcade Weekly Quests. With Endless March, a variation of 4v4 Dominion, soldiers appear as skeletons and will deal brutal damage, and conquering zones only give you temporary points. Killing these soldiers and enemy players will get you permanent points. As part of the Marching Fire expansion for the game, the quick-play PvE Arcade mode was added with Return of the Otherworld being the first Arcade Weekly Quest with it handcrafted special Halloween event. Naturally there are also Halloween-themed rewards as part of Return of the Otherworld, including new Mask Outfits to transform characters into ghoulish versions. These outfits will be available for 15,000 Steel, per hero, for the first week of the event.

One of the aspects of both Just Cause 2 and Just Cause 3 I personally enjoy is how ridiculous it can be at times, thanks to the various weapons, vehicles, and tools available to the player. With the release of Just Cause 4 coming up, fans now have a chance to design a weapon for the game, and then potentially get it in. From now until October 31, you can design and submit them to www.GameStop.com/JC4 and after that date they will be reviewed by Square Enix and Avalanche Studios, the series' developer, with five selected as finalists. These finalists will then be voted shown off starting November 26 for fans to vote on, and the winning design will be passed on to the developers to be added to the game while the winner gets a Just Cause 4 custom skinned Xbox One X and Gold Edition of the game.

As you likely noticed, this contest is being done with GameStop and this comes into play for how to get the weapon. Anyone who pre-orders the game at GameStop or EB Games will get the weapon as post-launch DLC for free. All others will need to purchase the DLC separately, once it is made available.

GWENT and Thronebreaker Now Out for PC

Today CD Projekt Red released both the launch version of GWENT on the PC and Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales. Initially GWENT was a mini-game contained within The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, but later a standalone version was released as a beta, which showed a greater interest by gamers than the developer expected. Now it is finally out of beta and receiving the Homecoming update that includes redesigned elements to address player feedback, but still the changes are so significant, a website to show what is new was put together: playgwent.com/en/updates/homecoming. To celebrate the end of the public beta, all those who participated will receive a commemorative player title and a Launch Celebration Pack, though the latter is only available for a limited time.

 

 

Also released today is Thronebreaker: The Wticher Tales, which was going to be part of GWENT, but the developers then felt it would be best to make it its own adventure. In this RPG, the players follow Eve, a war-veteran queen now facing a Nilfgaardian invasion. It will use the same combat system as GWENT over its some 30 hour story with over 75 side quests. While the PC launch is today, its Xbox One and PlayStation 4 releases will be on December 4.

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.

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.
