  • Deus EX: Mankind Divided Announced

    So Square Enix has now official revealed Deus Ex: Mankind Divided for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

    The story will take place in 2020, exactly 2 years after the Aug Incident that occurred in Panchea in Deus Ex: Human Revolution. After millions died, a massive divide has occurred between people with augments and those without.

    David Anfossi, Head of Studio, Eidos-Montréal said, “For 15 years, Deus Ex has been a point of conversation across the games industry and beyond, whether the topic is the franchise’s unique gameplay or topical narrative focused on advanced biotechnology and human augmentation. What began with Deus Ex: Human Revolution goes to a whole new level in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, diving even deeper into this discussion and, in turn, offering fans an all-encompassing experience, one which will challenge their skills as players and emphasize decision-making based on real world topics.”

    Adam Jensen will return in the midst of this social and political chaos with new and improved augmentations. According to the press conference, this time around there will be greater player choice which would affect the outcome of the game.

  • Shadow of Mordor's Final DLC Released

    The last addition of DLC to Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, known as The Bright Lord is finally available across both PS4 and Xbox One and PC. The release date was announced earlier by Warner Bros. and the developer of the game Monolith, a new trailer was also released to build hype amongst the fans.

    In this expansion the players take on the role of Celebrimbor, for fans of the lords of the rings series they will recognize this character, as Celebrimbor players get to utilize the power of the one ring to face off against Sauron and his orc army. The DLC includes a new story driven campaign featuring ten missions and introduces the new “elite” Nemesis enemies and warchiefs. A new character skin (Celebrimbor) was also added for the main campaign, as well as for challenge mode, where players who want to get level-30 runes will have to square off against high level enemies as Celebrimbor.

    The design director Micheal de Plater also stated that the DLC was a lot tougher than the main campaign. The Bright lord DLC is available along with the 25$ season pass for the game or can be purchased separately.

  • Naughty Dog Might Not Make The Last Of Us 2

    The Last of Us is a gem of a game. Even though there are some out there who didn’t enjoy it as much, majority of the gamers loved it and the game has gotten 10/10 across numerous game critics.

    So it is only expected that a sequel to this game will be expected; especially considering the DLC for the game also was critically acclaimed.  However we may have to be patient for a sequel, if it is ever to happen.

    Seems till Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is completed and shipped, Naughty Dog is not even considering the possibility of The Last of Us 2. This is what Naughty Dog bosses Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley said about TLoU 2 in a recent interview with Game Informer:

    "That's all a big if. We're 110 percent in Uncharted 4 territory now. Blinders on, make this awesome."

    Of course many of might not even want a sequel to TLoU. Just like how fans of Quantic Dream love that company because of how they just move on to new IPs. In response to this Druckmann said:

    "We totally get it, because we have those same feelings as well. We have brainstormed sequel ideas for The Last of Us, and we've brainstormed ideas for new games, but all of that is put on ice right now while we work on Uncharted 4."

    For now Druckmann wanted to drive home the idea that right now they are not even in the brainstorming phase of TLoU2. As such that game might never be made. But in a way I am glad they are so focused on Uncharted 4. Everyone is expecting great things from this franchise’s initial steps on the current generation consoles.

  • Evolve’s DLC Plans Defended by Turtle Rock Studios

    DLC is definitely a sensitive topic. One of the anticipated games of the year so far, EVOLVE, has already stated its lengthy DLC plans which basically did not go to well with the gamers. I guess the main reason for the outcry was the price of the DLCs.

    In order to curb the onslaught, Turtle Rock co-founder Phil Robb came on the Evolve’s forum to explain the situation. He wanted to clarify that the DLCs planned were justified and that they did not cut any content from the game to create the DLCs.

    Robb worte, "When Evolve hits the shelves, none of the DLC will be done. Behemoth won't be done. None of the planned DLC hunters or monsters will be done. The only exception to this might be some skins that were working on now while we wait for all the final stages of packaging, manufacturing etc. to finish."

    He went on to add that the new Monsters and Hunters planned will require more money and time to create, and that it would be obvious to players once they get their hands on it. He also added that they just simply did not have the time and resources to include the planned DLC content into the base game itself:

    "As we got closer to finishing Evolve we ended up with designs for a bunch of monster and hunters that we just didn't have the time and money to make. Instead of throw them all out, why not put together a budget to make them as DLC? Means more content for the people who love the game and want more. It also means all those ideas get to see the light of day. Oh yeah, and it means more work for TRS and we can keep paying our bills and making cool stuff!"

    Well I can’t fight with that logic. All I can say is vote with your wallets. No one is forcing you to buy the DLCs or even the game itself. If you feel like the game is worth it and so is the DLCs, then support the developers so they can continue to make content you enjoy!

  • Driveclub PS Plus Edition Delayed "until further notice"

    Many had been waiting for DriveClub’s launch. The only exclusive PS4 racing game available right now. More than that it was set on an interesting Free-To-Play model with the PS Plus Edition costing nothing at all to subscribers.

    The PS Plus Edition was supposed to be launched alongside the retail copy of the game last month. However it seems that Sony ran into some issues which made them change their plans yet again. Worst of all is that the PS Plus Edition of the game has now been postponed without any exact release date.any had been waiting for DriveClub's launch. The only exclusive PS4 racing game available right now. More than that it was set on an interesting Free-To-Play model with the PS Plus Edition costing nothing at all to subscribers.

    Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida wrote the following open letter as an apology to those who were anticipating Evolution Studios' DriveClub.

    Hi everyone,

    I wanted to provide you with the latest update on DRIVECLUB. Unfortunately, the road to launch has been a little rocky, and we are truly sorry that so many of you have not been able to enjoy everything that we had hoped DRIVECLUB would deliver. We have been listening to your feedback and realize that patience understandably is running out. Evo is working around the clock to close the gap, and we have deployed additional engineering resources to help resolve the remaining issues as soon as possible.

    Unfortunately, the time frames required to roll out the fully connected experience will be longer than anticipated and we do not have an exact time frame for when they will be resolved. We will continue to update you on progress and you can find the latest info on the DRIVECLUB Facebook page.

    We are also very conscious that we have disappointed so many of you who were looking forward to playing the promised PS Plus Edition. Our first priority is to provide you with the best possible experience while playing DRIVECLUB. With the high volume of new players and additional server load the PS Plus Edition is anticipated to bring, we are currently not confident that we can guarantee the best online experience. Until we can ensure that everyone can enjoy the full social connected online experience, we will be postponing the release of the PS Plus Edition until further notice. On behalf of WWS we are enormously grateful for your patience and we thank you for the continued support and encouragement. Again, we sincerely apologize for the delay. We are committed to giving you the best racing experience on PS4 - it's taking a little longer than we hoped.

    Thanks, Shu

  • Destiny’s The Dark Below DLC Details

    Destiny’s first DLC – The Dark Below – will be arriving on the 9th of December across all platforms. The DLC is a part of the $35 season pass containing two pieces of DLC or can be bought on its own for $20. Fans of Destiny have been waiting for this DLC to get much needed variety required in the game. This is what Bungie president Harold Ryan had to say:

    "Destiny was created as a living universe, which has allowed us to improve the experience post launch in real-time. It also gives us insight into the things players are looking for in new content. We've seen from feedback that people want new activities, gear and weapons, and of course the immensely popular Raid. The community helps shape our development decisions and that’s really important to us."

    List of everything you can expect from this DLC: -- New weapons, armor, and gear to earn, including Legendary and Exotic items -- Light Level cap raised to 32 and five additional Bounty slots added -- New story quests and missions--after years hiding amongst the Hive shadows, a new character, Eris, has come forth bearing an ominous warning: The Hive seek to summon a god, Crota, to destroy the Earth. Find Eris in the Tower to take on special quests that include three new missions where you will increase your Light and earn new rewards -- New cooperative Strike, The Will of Crota, pits you and your Fireteam against Omnigul as she works to expand the Hive army at the command of her master, Crota -- Three new competitive multiplayer arenas -- New six-player Raid, Crota’s End, set deep within the depths of the Hellmouth -- PlayStation platforms will also get access to an exclusive cooperative Strike, The Undying Mind, and more (timed exclusive until at least Fall 2015)

  • Witcher 3’s Free DLC Plan

    All hail CD Projekt Red. I wish every major publisher would allow developers to do what CD Projekt Red is doing. For their already highly anticipated title, The Witcher 3, they have confirmed that they will be releasing all of the 16 planned DLCs for absolutely free! No matter what version of the game you buy, or when you buy the game, these 16 DLCs would be available to you upon release.

    This is what CD Projekt Red co-founder Marcin Iwinski had to say about the situation regarding DLCs this generation, "We love games. We love collecting them, playing them, and everything connected to that experience. Every time we reach out for a new release, we expect to be taken care of. We expect support if we encounter any problems, we love updates constantly improving the experience, and we feel really special when we receive free content that gives us more than we initially paid for. It doesn't have to be huge, it can be an awesome skin for a character or an extra sword, or armour.

    Unfortunately this treatment is quite rare these days. As gamers, we nowadays have to hold on tight to our wallets, as [un]surprisingly right after release, lots of tiny pieces of tempting content materialise with a steep price tag attached. Haven't we just paid a lot of cash for a brand new game? At CD Projekt Red, we strongly believe this is not the way it should work and, with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, we have decided to do it differently.

    Cutting to the chase, everyone who buys Wild Hunt will receive 16 specially prepared DLCs absolutely for free, regardless of platform. You don't have to pre-order, you don't have to buy any special edition to get them - if you own a copy of Wild Hunt, they're yours. This is our way of saying thank you for buying our game."

    The current plan is to release a DLC bundle (containing two pieces of DLC) every week since the launch of the game on 24th February 2015. So the first DLC will arrive on the 25th of February and the rest coming out on a weekly basis.
