In the countdown to Fallout 4, Bethesda is ramping up to readiness by releasing a bunch of behind-the-scenes videos. First there was a Strength video, from Fallout's S.P.E.C.I.A.L. system, then there was Perception. This time around, to continue the chronological theme, Bethesda has released a video for Endurance.
Again! That's right, after being unceremoniously removed for sale due to the game being, well, a complete an utter mess, Batman: Arkham Knight is expected to be available once again for PC. When? Well, we don't know an exact date. But what we do know is that it will be re-released sometime "in the coming weeks".
1994 was a long time ago. PC game installations weren't a matter of clicking on an icon, they required a steady stream of interactivity. Stuff along the lines of "INSERT DISK 8 OF 17" and then bottling in the rage after reading "DISK READ ERROR". Which means getting one of these old PC games to run on modern hardware is a bit like trying to cram a VHS tape into a Blu-ray player. It won't work. Which is where companies like Night Dive Studios and GOG.com come in. In fact, they've just released an enhanced version of the classic 1994 sci-fi shooter System Shock. And, installation is as easy as clicking on an icon.
The latest Hitman game, simply called Hitman, is definitely an ambitious undertaking for developer Io Interactive and Square Enix. The huge open environments meant that the game was going to be released later this year. But in stages, with new content and environments and missions and other good assassin-y stuff added over time. That's still the plan, but the initial release has been pushed back to March 2016.
It's no secret that to many, Dragon Age: Inquisition was indeed the Game of the Year for 2014. And by now we all know how Game of the Year editions for games work, especially in the modern climate of DLC content. So yeah, this re-release of Dragon Age: Inquisition will come with all the DLC content released so far, including the recent 'Trespasser' which is said to bridge the gap between Inquisition and the next Dragon Age game proper.
In what one assumes must mean 'beta testing', players can sign up now to take part in playing Battleborn before its release in March 2016. All that's required is a Shift account, stating where you're from, and what platform you'd like to play on. The 'Closed Technical Test' will be made available on an unspecified date for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
Issues like, "Hey, this ancient mountain temple is burning to the ground. How in the heck do I cross this chasm?" and, "Man, totally need to find a way to get to that rock formation." And with the answer to both being an emphatic "Grapple!" we get a look at Lara's upgraded grappling hook in a new Rise of the Tomb Raider trailer. Plus, a fantastic looks at some of the locations and tombs found in the game.
And by all we mean, all. Orcs, humans, elves, goblins, trolls, and other fantastical beings all vying for the ball, trying to make up precious yards, and leaving their dreams of conquering the Ash Lands of Gwendellia at the door. And all in the hopes of scoring a touchdown by the way of taking the ball into the end zone and scoring points for their team. Surprised we know a little bit about American Football? Well, we do love orcs, and Blood Bowl II is shaping up to be a viable Madden Football alternative. For those of us that enjoy a hefty dose of fantasy violence.
Who goes by the name of River and belongs to Joel Burgess, the lead level designer of Fallout 4. Paired alongside footage of Fallout 4, the similarities between real-world River and in-game Dogmeat are striking to say the least. And go a long way in explaining why this time around companions won't be able to die. Also in Fallout 4 news, we've got a few extra 'bits o' info' concerning companions.
