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.
Based on a recent trademark and a few rumours, the next installment in the Call of Duty franchise will be called Infinite Warfare. And it will take place in the distant future. A new teaser video has been released ahead of a reveal tomorrow. Perhaps the most interesting of the recent rumours is a listing that the new game will come packed with a remastered version of the amazing Call of Duty 4.
As part of the 1.5 update to the game (which has gone live on Steam today), the newly revamped Survival Mode will finally be unleashed onto consoles sometime next week. For those that are unfamiliar this is the mode that introduces hunger, thirst, disease, and restricts saving to when your character sleeps. It's intense to say the least.
An epic new six minute trailer for the upcoming Deus Ex: Mankind Divided has been released, and it will remind you why it's still one of 2016's most anticipated releases. Narrated by the game's protagonist Adam Jensen, it not only serves as a great way to get up to speed with a future where augmented humans are treated as second class citizens. But by using Adam Jensen to explain key mechanics and combat techniques, it also adds compelling context to everything from weapon modifications to non-lethal take-downs.
As part of a recent Twitch stream, id Software showcased a decent chunk of DOOM's single-player. In in we got to see early parts of the campaign, how combat works, upgrades, level design, and a lot more. It's all very old school in design, and very action-oriented. For those that were left underwhelmed by the recent multiplayer beta you might want to check this out. There are even doors that reference different coloured key cards. Which is a nice touch.
