Crytek's love of VR is really starting to blossom, and while I can't wait to jump into their dino-themed Robinson: The Journey, the studio has announced it will be working with academic institutions to start young developers early into the revamped and impressive VR world.
That is until Konami notice what he's doing and then decide to live up to the reputation they've garnered throughout the course of 2015, and put the kibosh on the whole project. But, until that day comes Metal Gear fan Airam Hernandez plans to continue working on a full HD remake of the 1998 classic. Called Shadow Moses (names after an island in the game) we get to see his efforts in a trailer for the project.
From we've seen of the title so far there's been a lot of focus on the presentation and how great the vehicles and environments look up close in Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak. Which is all well and good, but for an RTS most of the time units will be viewed as part of an army. And from way, way back. In a new video showcasing one of the multiplayer modes in the game, we get to see just that. And the results look very good.
Well, there goes the perfect track record of Diablo III growing from strength to strength with each new patch. In addition to the new gear, new locations, revamped sets, and other welcome additions the latest 2.4 patch for the game is causing lag, frame-rate, and stuttering issues on both the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game. The issues seem to be most prevalent when playing multiplayer or when things get a little hectic enemy-wise, and for some is making the experience somewhat unplayable.
Okay, so if you pre-ordered your copy of The Division the official Beta kicks off January 28 on Xbox One, and the following day, January 29, for PlayStation 4 and PC. It'll only be playable for a single weekend, with the Beta ending on January 31 for all platforms. For those that still want in you can sign-up for your chance to take part. And join, as the site is clear to point out, The Waiting List. Ominous. Also, there won't be any microtransactions. Sort of.
And it's available to pre-purchase on Steam right now. And, it comes with Valve's blessing. Which, when you try and picture how that came about, is downright impossible without a robed figure, a smokey religious trinket of some sort, a sacrifice, and old timey chanting. 'Prospekt' for those not in the know, continues the story of soldier boy Adrian Shephard, who starred in the first Hal-Life expansion 'Opposing Force'. Although that came out in 1999, Prospekt is a stand-alone release and has been built utilising the more familiar Half-Life 2 assets.
Praise the assassin gods Hitman fans, because it looks like you can get your hands on the new game without having to decipher a large info-graphic poster trying to figure out what makes up the Intro Pack, Upgrade Pack, and The Full Experience. The title is still on track to release content gradually throughout 2016, but the new pricing structure will now follow the more familiar monthly episodic approach. Starting in April.
