Just a quick update here, but Electronic Arts’ technical director on Frostbite, Johan Andersson, has tweeted out an image of what very much looks to be the next flagship AMD graphics card - the AMD Radeon R9 390X.

While it’s by no means concrete info, it certainly looks like the leaked renders we saw a few weeks ago, indicating that those were very much the real deal. Andersson tweeted out the image, alongside the message “This new island is one seriously impressive and sweet GPU. wow & thanks @AMDRadeon ! They will be put to good use :)”, alluding to the Pirate Island GPUs. [More]

Batman: Arkham Knight Live Action Trailer Shows What You Need To Be The Batman

Written by Stuart Thomas on 22 May 2015 at 14:00

There’s a new trailer out for Batman: Arkham Knight, and I get the distinct impression after watching it that Warner Bros wants me to punch strangers on a train, run headlong into a burning building, and singlehandedly take on three armed muggers, risks be damned.

The live action Batman: Arkham Knight - Be the Batman trailer emphasises the selflessness, courage, and determination needed to be the Caped Crusader himself. Personally I find impeccable counter-attack timing, hiding in vents, and picking off poor guards one by one to be the necessary tools. Oh, and there’s even a bit of gameplay footage thrown on at the end for good measure. [More]

Intel Skylake Launch Schedule Reveals Desktop CPUs Could Be Arriving In August

Written by Joffy S on 22 May 2015 at 12:45

Intel has been finalising the launch schedules for the entirety of its upcoming range of processors based on the ‘Skylake’ microarchitecture. Previous estimates had hinted the first desktop processors could arrive late this year, but the latest reports indicate Intel could have Skylake-S ready as soon August this year.

We’re expected to finally get our first look at the Skylake microprocessors during the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco, set to run from 18th-20th August. Intel’s got plenty to demonstrate, with quite a few processors expected towards the tail-end of this year and into the beginning of 2016. [More]

Hellraid Development In Trouble As Techland Head Back To The Drawing Board

Written by Neil Soutter on 22 May 2015 at 11:30

First-person hack ‘n’ slasher Hellraid is on the rocks, as developer Techland has scrapped work on the project and sent it back to the drawing board. The Dying Light and Call of Juarez: Gunslinger developer has announced it will no longer be launching this year, and development has been put on hold to focus on other projects.

The projects in question? Well, Techland has said it wants to consolidate its development resources and have a focus on expanding the Dying Light universe, whether that be further content packs or a full-blown sequel. [More]

Need For Speed Reboot Announced - Coming Fall 2015

Written by Joffy S on 22 May 2015 at 10:00

EA has unveiled a brand new Need For Speed game from Ghost Games, the same studio responsible for 2013’s Need For Speed Rivals, and comprised of a number of ex-Criterion developers. Going simply by the name Need For Speed, this is a reboot of the classic racing series, coming to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

A full reveal is coming during its E3 2015 press conference Monday, June 15 at 1PM PT / 4PM ET / 9PM BST, but in the meantime we’ve got an early look with an in-engine teaser trailer and the first batch of screens. [More]

Performance And Stability Enhancing Witcher 3: Wild Hunt PC Patch Released

Written by Stuart Thomas on 21 May 2015 at 16:30

CD Projekt RED has issued a new patch for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, providing a host of changes to the PC version of its mighty impressive RPG. Coming so soon after launch there’s no major gameplay additions, but The Witcher 3 patch 1.03 packs in a range of stability and performance enhancements.

The key areas focused on here are improving the previously-shaky Nvidia Hairworks performance, as well as UI stability. Hopefully this should iron out the problems many have been having with The Witcher 3 freezing when accessing certain menus. [More]

Battlefield Hardline - Criminal Activity Expansion Pack Detailed

Written by Neil Soutter on 21 May 2015 at 15:15

EA has announced details of Battlefield Hardline’s first expansion pack, called Criminal Activity. The DLC is the first of four expansions coming to Visceral Games’ Battlefield debut, and it’s set to focus on fast-paced action.

Coming in June, Criminal Activity packs in four new maps, including The Beat, Backwoods, Code Blue and Black Friday, which fittingly enough sound like perfect titles for some episodes of CSI. These will be joined by three new weapons, six new masks, two new vehicles, a new gadget and a nailgun pickup, if you’re feeling particularly brutal. [More]

Rumour: Nvidia Planning GeForce GTX 980 Ti Reveal In A Fortnight

Written by Joffy S on 21 May 2015 at 14:00

Reports are emerging that Nvidia is planning to reveal its own GeForce GTX 980 Ti at the very same Computex event in Taipei that AMD is scheduled to launch its Radeon R9 300 family of graphics cards. If Nvidia does push out the 980 Ti then it’s certainly going to take the wind out of AMD’s sails, offering performance lodged somewhere above a GeForce GTX 980 and in a similar territory to the GTX Titan X.

A lot has been made of AMD’s upcoming flagship model, the High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) equipped Radeon R9 390X. This is expected to debut at the same show, and comes packing the 2.5D memory offering lightning-quick performance. Nvidia’s clearly concerned if these rumours are true, turning the GeForce GTX 980 Ti around for release in rapid time to combat AMD. [More]
