  • Far Cry 5 New Trailers - Takes Place In Hope County, Montana - Coming May 26
    Bald Bouncer
    Ubisoft dropped a bunch of brand new trailers for Far Cry 5 out of nowhere today- they’re not actually as much of trailers as much as they is a really short teaser video. You can check them out for yourself below- but they seem to confirm the Montana setting that has been discussed before, welcoming players to ‘Hope County.’ It is unclear whether the game is going full western like Red Dead Redemption, as was rumored, but there seem to be enough indications that it may be in the videos....

  • Destiny 2 Won’t Have Grimoire Cards, “Want Lore In The Game”
    Bald Bouncer
    Annoyed by Destiny’s Grimoire cards, especially when you needed a separate device to read them? You won’t have to worry about that in Destiny 2 because they won’t be coming back. Speaking to Forbes, Bungie world lead Steve Cotton said that, “The answer to that question is ‘no’ and the reason it’s ‘no’ is because we want to put the lore in the game.

    “We want people to be able to find the lore. All the story is told through the Adventures, it’s told through the characters in...

    Bald Bouncer
    Blizzard Entertainment’s Overwatch made an impact for several reasons, including its animated shorts. With a particular focus on characters like Winston, Soldier 76 and Bastion, the animated shorts were a big hit among fans. Thankfully, we’ll be getting more.

    According to director Jeff Kaplan while speaking to Polygon, season 2 of these shorts is currently in progress. “The animated shorts are probably the thing that we have the most fun making. We really love working with...

  • Prey How Does The PS4 Pro Version Compare Against PC Maxed Out Settings On GTX 1080Ti
    Bald Bouncer
    Arkane Studios’ Prey is an interesting case to analyze, especially given how the PC version of Dishonored 2 turned out last year. Prey runs on an altogether different engine compared to Dishonored 2…Arkane have utilized Crytek’s CryEngine as oppose to id Tech 5 this time around. This marks the second time this year that a major release is using the CryEngine, the first one being Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 which was somewhat of a mix bag.

    However, Arkane have implemented the features...

    LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 Launches This Holiday

    Warner Bros. has confirmed that LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2, the sequel to the Marvel themed LEGO game that did gangbusters upon release, will be releasing later this year for the PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. As of right now, the PS4, Xbox One, and PC versions have a release date of November 14, while the Switch version is simply listed for a ‘Holiday’ release (though we can probably reasonably suppose it will be launching around the same time).

    The game will bring...

  • Injustice 2 Launch Trailer Amps You Up For The Impending Fight

    Injustice 2, the sequel to NetherRealms DC Universe inspired fighting game, is almost here – it launches tomorrow – and ahead of its launch, Warner Bros. has released a new launch trailer to prepare you and hype you up for the impending battles that lie ahead.

    You can see multiple big (and not so big) name DC stars duking it out in Injustice, which tells the story of a dystopian future ruled by a Superman gone tyrant, and Batman’s attempts to throw him off. It’s basically...

  • Zelda, New Pokemon Games in Development For Mobiles – Report

    Following the success of Fire Emblem Heroes (and the so-so revenue from Super Mario Run), it seems that Nintendo will be bringing The Legend of Zelda to mobiles. This is according to sources that spoke to The Wall Street Journal, which also stated that a new Pokemon game was coming from The Pokemon Company.

    The Zelda mobile title, in development by DeNA, will apparently arrive after the Animal Crossing mobile title (arriving in the second half of 2017). As of now, there’s no...

  • UK Game Charts: Prey Takes Top Spot, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe in Third

    It’s been a good week in the UK for Arkane Studios’ Prey. After debuting on May 5th and ranking second in the UK game charts (as per Gfk Chart-Track), Prey managed to capture the top spot in its second week. This marks the first time since last year’s DOOM that a Bethesda-published title has captured the number 1 spot in the UK.

    Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has since fallen to third place with Grand Theft Auto 5 somehow ending up in third. Blame all the new updates, events and content...

    Nintendo Teases Surprises For E3

    Nintendo has kept its E3 preparations pretty low key, leaving a lot of fans intrigued about what the company may have in store, sure, but even more who are worried about there not being enough coming to the newly launched Switch.

    However, it sounds like there may be some notable announcements that we don’t know of yet en route at E3 - on its E3 site, Nintendo says, “Stay tuned after the Nintendo Spotlight, as the experts from Treehouse play through upcoming games for Nintendo...

  • Star Wars Battlefront 2: DICE Details The Inferno Squad

    Star Wars Battlefront II’s reveal was met with great fanfare and early positive reception, thanks mostly to the fact that other than improving on its predecessor’s already solid multiplayer base, it’s also seemingly pulling no punches when it comes to the single play campaign, telling an ambitious, and what looks to be an intriguing story. What’s more, it’s all going to be Star Wars canon!

    EA and DICE have now revealed some new info on the game. More specifically, it is about...

  • Star Citizen’s New Video Shows Off The Game’s Interaction Systems

    We still don’t know when Star Citizen will be out, or even the first episode of Squadron 42 (which in itself is just a smaller module of the larger game), but developers Cloud Imperium Games have dutifully released a brand new video showcasing how development for the game is coming along. The video shows off the progress made on the work done on the ships, the game’s environment, lighting system, and then proceeds to go in depth into the game’s interaction systems.

    The interaction...

  • Madden 18 Uses Frostbite, Launching on PS4 and Xbox One

    EA Sports have confirmed that Madden 18 will be launching later this year, for the Xbox One and PS4 (no, no Nintendo Switch version of the game just yet). It will also be the very first game in the series to use the Frostbite Engine- until now, the games had been using the EA Ignite engine. Though fellow EA Sports alum FIFA made the jump to Frostbite last year, Madden had thus far been sticking to the proprietary engine instead.

    Madden 18 ditches the old engine for the new- but...

  • Nintendo and Microsoft Are Ready For The Play Anywhere Future- But Is Sony?

    The Nintendo Switch has gone on to become a huge success, becoming Nintendo’s fastest selling system ever (yes, that means faster than the Wii), and exceeding all expectations and projections that were set for its performance. It has gone on to do so in spite of all the conventional wisdom and doomsaying that traditional gamers and industry observers were spouting- after all, here was an underpowered system with a refined version of the same gimmick that had failed to do anything for the ill fated...

    The Xbox One will have full support for keyboards in the coming days thanks to the Xbox Live Creators Program. Announced by Microsoft’s Andrew Parsons at Build 2017, where the company’s new Fluent design system was also unveiled, it was a feature that most developers were curious about.

    Interestingly enough, mouse support is still up int eh air. Microsoft engineer James Yarrow noted that mouse support “probably won’t work” with Parsons noting that most models wouldn’t...

    Trion Worlds’ free to play MMO RIFT is still very much alive and kicking with a new paid expansion called Prophecy of Ahnket now available. There’s a twist though – anyone who logs into RIFT till May 14th will receive the expansion for free. Permanently.

    You’ll have to act fast though – after May 14th, it will cost $19.99. The expansion contains new zones, raids, a new level cap of 70, Legendary Abilities, new Eternal items, equipment enhancement through in-game trials and...

  • Cyberpunk Horror Game Observer Launches on PS4, Xbox One, and PC This Summer

    Bloober Team, the folks who brought us Layers of Fear before, will be bringins us the cyberpunk horror game Observer this summer, Bloober Team’s Rafal Basaj confirmed. The game will be launching on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

    The game seems to take some cues from the Black Mirror episode about augmented reality, asking players the question- what would they do if their fears were hacked? The game is supposed to be a lot more cerebral and psychologically manipulative than other...

  • Metal Gear Survive Is Still Due For A 2017 Release, Konami Confirms

    Konami appears to be determined to stick around in the AAA gaming market in spite of renouncing it a few years ago, albeit in a reduced capacity- maybe the success of their games like Super Bomberman R has something to do with that. Later this year, the company will be releasing the next instalment in the Metal Gear franchise, the game that no one asked for- Metal Gear Survive.

    Metal Gear Survive is a co-op zombie shooter made on the FOX Engine, which means it is everything that...

  • For Honor Patch 1.08 Adding Dead Zone Settings for Controllers, Fixes Soft Feints

    A new patch will be going live for Ubisoft’s For Honor on May 16th and adds a ton of balance changes for its heroes. More importantly, however, it allows players on consoles to customize the stick dead zones on their controllers. This mostly applies to the right stick, used for switching guard mode, and has a default value of 10 to start with.

    Then there are the “soft feints”, which essentially allows players to cancel Guard Breaks or Light attacks by triggering another Guard...

  • Overwatch Anniversary Event Seemingly Confirmed, PTR Closing Sooon

    Details have been rather non-existent about Blizzard’s next event for Overwatch. All we have are rumours stating than an anniversary event is happening on May 24th with skins for Reaper, Tracer and Sombra in-bound.

    Interestingly, when asked about the event on Twitter, Blizzard said that there are, “No timing details yet.” Which seems to confirm that the anniversary event is indeed real. After all, when the developer playfully jokes, it playfully jokes. This doesn’t appear...

  • Get Even New Trailer Sees You Visiting An Odd Tea Party

    Bandai Namco’s upcoming surreal horror game Get Even just got a brand new trailer today, showcasing something completely odd- a tea party that the game’s protagonist Cole Black finds himself visiting. Well, calling it a tea party may be a bit of a stretch, since it seems rather that he is in the company of a fellow recalling the Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland. Who is incidentally drinking tea.

    Of course, the trailer is cryptic, and we don’t get any more to go...

  • Overwatch Highlight Saving and Exporting Details Coming This Summer

    If you’ve ever pulled off some sick plays in Blizzard Entertainment’s Overwatch but found no way to share them, much less save them once exiting the game, then Blizzard may have a solution soon. It promised changes to the current Highlights feature last year and director Jeff Kaplan has announced on the forums that more information is due.

    “This is the current focus of the feature team (one of the smaller development strike teams on the Overwatch team). The team is working...

Given the payout during Heists, that’s a hefty offering but you’ll have to act fast – double rewards are currently active till May 16th.

  • Dynasty Warriors 9 Goes Open World, New Details Revealed

    Famitsu (via Gematsu) has a bunch of new information about Koei Tecmo’s Dynasty Warriors 9, the cult favourite crowd-brawling action title. A number of changes are inbound including an open world setting which the player will traverse via horseback (fast travel is still a thing so don’t worry).

    Capturing castles is possible in the open world and you can now attack them from behind or even the high ground. Battles will now take place at different points on a map with main missions...

  • Far Cry 5 Set in Montana, No Evidence of Wild West Setting – Rumor

    Leaks can be pretty outrageous these days. A recent off-screen image showcased Assassin’s Creed: Origins and its Egypt setting. There’s a current rumour going around that this is from Red Dead Redemption 2. However, the rumour that Far Cry 5 – which apparently exists – will be set in the Wild West has to be the weirdest.

    Which is why noted Kotaku writer and leaker Jason Schreier chimed in on NeoGAF to offer his take. He first said that, “Since my name has been attached to this...

  • Heroes of the Storm Video Highlights Overwatch Hero D.Va

    Overwatch’s D.Va is the newest hero to arrive in Blizzard’s free to play MOBA Heroes of the Storm. What can she do? As it turns out in a new video, quite a bit. D.Va can fight in two different modes – Mech and Pilot – and much like Overwatch, she has the ability to self-destruct. After this, D.Va can call her mech down again. Attacking enemies will reduce the cooldown on self-destruct and her mech, much like in the hero shooter. Unfortunately, like in Overwatch, D.Va’s overall tankiness...

    Hollywood is the reality TV actor turned hero who uses an assault rifle and explosives to win the day; Fortune is a sky pirate armed with a drone and dual pistols; while Hardtack has a shotgun, grenade launcher, fishing spear and...

    Far Cry 5 May Be A Spaghetti Western- Rumor

    Red Dead Redemption 2 may not be the only game in town this year as far as westerns go - according to WCCFTech, the next Far Cry game may also decide to take a detour into the past and deliver an open world western game. What’s more, it may be due out this year, too.

    There is a fair bit of evidence pointing this way- website Great Falls Tribune reported that a local church will be featured in a blockbuster game in a world famous franchise that is due out later this year. Kotaku’s...
