In a new mod that is. One that changes the environment to reflect the seasons we all know as Spring, Summer, Winter, and Fall. Whatever that last one may be. Visually, this mod (which works best alongside a handful of other foliage related mods) adds a new dimension to the Commonwealth. The Winter effects in particular look amazing, and it's wonderful how a little snow can make just about any Fallout 4 environment look and feel almost completely different.
In a new developer diary that goes behind the scenes of Blackbird Interactive and Gearbox's prequel to Homeworld. We get a good look at how the game looks and feels, how it developed from a spiritual successor from ex-Homeworld and Company of Heroes developers into an official prequel, and what makes the desert setting of Kharak so alluring for the RTS genre. There's a lot to take in, and this is a fantastic way to learn more about the game before its January 20 release.
Looks like the leaked retail release date was right, as Deep Silver confirms that its upcoming post-America taken over by North Korea shooter Homefront: The Revolution will be out for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on May 20th 2016. And with the release date we get a new trailer titled 'This is Philadelphia' which looks like a mash-up of Call of Duty, Half Life 2, and Deus Ex. Except nowhere near as iconic. Who knows, this may end up being pretty good.
The hype for Ubisoft's The Division has been building gradually over the years, ever since its impressive debut in 2013. With a string of delays, new videos showcasing a far less visually impressive game, and some general development shake-ups, this new trailer goes a long way to showcase and rekindle the promise we saw when the title first debuted. It's packed with footage from what we can expect to see in the final version, and boy, it's looking good. Extremely good.
Which is basically the PC equivalent of the company's EA Access service for Xbox One, where for a monthly fee you get access to a library of EA titles. And play them for as long as you remain subscribed. Origin Access, the PC equivalent, has launched today for $4.99 USD per month. Some of the games in the service so far include Battlefield 4, Battlefield Hardline, Dragon Age: Inquisition, and The Sims 3. Launching in the US, Canada, UK, and Germany Origin Access is not yet available in Australia, but that's probably just a matter of time.
For fans of Blizzard's 1995 classic RTS Warcraft II, of which you can include all of us here at Ausgamers, this is a must watch. So much so that we created a new news heading for things like this that aren't really news or all that informative that we'd like to call, 'Oh, Internet!' This video from YouTuber Robert Mermet takes the recently released trailer for the upcoming Warcraft movie and replaces all sounds and music with those from the 1995 game. It's awesome.
Out are the shanty towns and dilapidated buildings, and in are open fields, farms, and giant rock formations. In this play-through for IGN, developer Techland takes us through the opening moments of the game. Fair warning though, it's a few minutes until the first zombie kill. But that leads to setting a group of them on fire with a Molotov Cocktail, so all's well that ends well.
The HTC Vive (pronounced Vive) will begin taking pre-orders February 29, in anticipation for the VR device thingy's full release in April. Although we don't know the price, with the addition of a front-facing camera leading to a four month delay, much like the Rift the Vive is being positioned as a high-end device. It's almost as if Virtual Reality will be for the rich, and Regular Reality for the rest of us.
