It certainly feels like a while since we've had a huge AAA release. Specifically one that blends RPG elements, action, stealth, and open world exploration in a future where augmented citizens are treated like yesterday's trash. Yep, we're only a few days away from Deus Ex: Mankind Divided! Which launches August 23 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. A game that we've been waiting quite a while for now. And one that continues to look fantastic with its new launch trailer.
By the time Santa gets around to visiting every house in the world over the course of a single evening this December via chimneys that may or may not exist, he'll be bringing along three different Virtual Reality boxes in his sack. The Oculus Rift, PlayStation VR, and HTC Vive. Can the market support three VR devices? Who knows, but we do know Ubisoft won't be playing favourites when it launches Eagle Flight, Star Trek: Bridge Crew, and Werewolves Within this holiday season across all three Virtual devices.
What's that in my eye? Nothing. You see I had a spicy lunch and maybe some chili got in there. Who knows for sure. On an unrelated note, Blizzard has released the latest Overwatch Animated Short, called "The Last Bastion". Which, as per the name focuses on everyone's favourite robot-sentry. And it's truly special, so much so that the next time you pick Bastion you'll want to ditch all the fighting and retreat to the woods.
Ahead of the upcoming Titanfall 2 tech test this weekend AusGamers' Ben Salter went to Respawn Entertainment to go hands-on with multiplayer. Which means he's already done what you'll be doing tomorrow. So click on through for all the details on what to expect. Plus, some nifty game footage captured from the tech test build of the game.
Developer Deck13's last game, Lords of the Fallen, was very much a Dark Souls clone. A gritty, tough, action RPG set in a fantasy world. But it was also pretty good so people didn't mind that it liberally borrowed elements from, err, From Software's classic. Because hey, more Dark Souls is never a bad thing. With its next game though, Dark13 is taking the same methodology to the future with The Surge. Click through for an early gameplay demo.
For a second there we forgot that the release of Yooka-Laylee was pushed back to Q1 2017. Now, of course we want the end product to be the best it can be, but damn if this new look at the game doesn't conjure up blissful memories of the glory days of the 3D platformer. The 1990s baby. Glory days that we can't wait to relive with Yooka-Laylee.
Complete with 28 high-end PCs and two cutting edge VR setups. Partnering with Sydney-based gaming café, City Hunter, this new space will also house monthly community events and tournaments. And it's now open to the public! So if you're in or around the Sydney area be sure to head on over to check it out as access to all this sweet gear will be free from tomorrow through to Sunday.
Via the introductory sequence of the original BioShock. And what looks to be the original Xbox 360 release paired up against the 1080p 60fps PS4 and Xbox One remastered versions. Not limited to a resolution bump and cleaner texture work, we also get to see some additional underwater foliage and creatures swimming about. Plus, a few new spiffy graphical effects.
Because in it, you'll be tasked with blowing up the Death Star. Called Battle Station, this new mode unfolds over three phases with Imperials and Rebels fighting it out in space, aboard the Death Star, and finally back out in trenches as they look to destroy the Empire's ultimate weapon. Spoiler alert, there's a weakness with one of the thermal exhaust ports.
