The first paid-for expansion for The Division is called 'Underground Operations' and it introduces a new wing to the standard Base of Operations where players and groups can tackle randomised missions or dungeons set in the vast sprawling subway system of New York City. Think Rifts from Diablo 3 and you get the idea. With varying difficulty, modifiers, and rewards, 'Underground Operations' looks to add a bit of variety to the standard mission-replay feature in the base game.
With Overwatch being out for a few weeks now a lot of people have been wondering what's next for the popular hero shooter. And some of them out loud too, with Overwatch Game Director Jeff Kaplan responding to a community post on the official forum outlining what the team is currently working on and what's in store for the future. Spoiler alert, a lot of new content.
It isn't easy reinventing the headset wheel, albeit without adding shiny bells and whistles that really just detract from the overall use of said product. Today's news from Astro Gaming that they've revamped the A50 is anything but bells and whistles, with actual functionality steering this updated headset including 7.1 surround sound, wireless functionality and more.
Not that we were expecting to see the next installment in the Elder Scrolls series at E3, as Bethesda only really showcases its biggest titles when they're just about done. But it's good to know that it's in the works. And that it's going to be ambitious in scope. In a recent discussion with IGN, Bethesda Game Studios head Todd Howard opened up a bit about the future of the studio.
Announced at E3 2014, Crackdown 3 was always going to be delayed. With news that it was taking advantage of cloud computing to manage city-wide CPU-intensive destruction, that's the sort of ambitious feature that lends itself to delays. And with the game being a no-show this year, developer Reagent Games and series creator Dave Jones took time to update fans about where the game is at. Spoiler alert, it's coming 2017.
After a successful debut last year AMD and PC Gamer teamed up again to put on a PC gaming show for E3. With the debut gameplay trailer for Dawn of War III, plus new looks at LawBreakers, and updates on PC favourites like Ark: Survival Evolved and Killing Floor these are all the highlights from the PC Gaming Show.
The upcoming arena FPS from Cliff Blezinski's Boss Key Productions got a new trailer in time for the PC Gaming Show at E3, and to top it off a Closed Alpha Test is happening for LawBreakers this weekend starting June 18. Be sure to sign up for it now, as spots are limited.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for the Wii U and the mysterious Nintendo NX is slated for release early 2017. After a teaser debut a few years back Nintendo has opted to give players an incredibly in-depth look at the new adventure at E3. It's safe to say that this is easily the most ambitious game in the series with a vast open world to explore and a non-linear approach to progression. Plus, that unmistakable Nintendo sheen of quality.
And with a photo-realistic visual style, Resident Evil 7 is a clear departure for the series that has been more about action and thrills since the release of the seminal Resident Evil 4. Going first-person with realistic visuals and slow measured mechanics, the creepy factor has been turned up to 11. And if you're a PlayStation Plus member you can even check out a Resident Evil 7 demo, out now!
During a livestream earlier today developer Bend Studio went through its new post-apocalyptic open world zombie game Days Gone. Revealed during the Sony press conference, and built using the Unreal Engine, the game looks fantastic. And with swarms of high speed zombies (or as they're known here 'freakers') that can chase players through abandoned lumberyards and forests it certainly looks like a tense gaming experience.
