Like the sequel to the '90s comedy hit Sister Act, AusGamers' own Joab Gilroy finds himself back in the habit. In the habit of playing Hearthstone that is. With the recent release of the Whispers of the Old Gods expansion for the popular card-battle game from Blizzard, one that introduces a bunch of new cards and different ways to play, you'd think that it would be a little daunting to start playing now. Well, you'd be wrong.
With the date being June 24 for the long in development spiritual successor to Mega Man from Keiji Inafune. Originally slated for 2015, it's taken almost three years for the Kickstarter funded title to get a firm release date. And it will be available on just about every console and PC platform, debuting on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U, PC, Mac and Linux.
Thankfully Infinity Ward's turn with Call of Duty this year isn't a sequel to Ghosts. Rather, the original CoD studio has taken the fight into space, and while you might normally shrug at the annual release of the series, this time we urge you to have a look at what the studio is serving up here, because it looks bloody awesome.
Previously only available as a pre-order bonus, the Chaos Warriors DLC will now be free for all those who buy Total War: WARHAMMER during its first week of release. Which is a good thing, because the latest Let's Play video featuring the Chaos Warriors is probably the most impressive look at the game yet.
After spending some time with the open beta I'm pretty excited about Gearbox's hero/co-op/MOBA/shooter-thing Battleborn. It features a bright and colourful cast of characters, the same irreverent humour found in the Borderlands games, and some pretty fun co-op and competitive action. And, it's out tomorrow for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
Last week DOOM and Quake designers John Romero and Adrian Carmack launched a Kickstarter campaign for a new action-packed FPS called Blackroom, one that quickly drew a lot of attention and criticism for the lack of anything shown outside of some concept art. Albeit some pretty cool concept art. And now based on feedback, and the fact that it looked like it would fall short of its intended funding goal, the campaign has stopped. But it will be back at some point in the future, alongside a playable demo.
Since the latest update to the game, one that added end game content in the form of Incursions (the first of which being a horde mode of sorts) a number of easy exploits were discovered by players. Stuff that led to the game's rarest loot and gear being obtainable with very little effort. On the PC side of things The Division has also fallen prey to cheaters, where the Dark Zone slowly devolved into a game of legit players versus unbeatable cheaters. Ubisoft has now opened up about its plans to tackle it all, something that will hopefully fix things moving forward.
