Rainbow Six Siege 2.1 Update Fixes Kapkan Glitch And Adds Dedicated Servers

Written by Joffy S on 12 February 2016 at 11:30

Regular Rainbow Six Siege players will be all too aware it’s been catastrophically broken since the 2.0 Black Ice update arrived last week. Players are going rampant with invisible Kapkan tripwires, character models are going haywire, textures are going missing, and matchmaking has you pondering the purpose of your existence as it ticks over into its tenth minute of ‘Finding a match’.

I love Rainbow Six Siege but the problems introduced around the time of that last update forced me to put it aside until it’s fixed, lest I trip over another Kapkan and go full Rambo. Luckily Ubisoft has been fairly swift in its response, issuing a new 2.1 update last night for PC, before it eventually arrives for PS4 and Xbox One players on the 16th. [More]

Ubisofts Watch Dogs 2 Announced and Out by April 2017

Written by Jacques Waugh on 12 February 2016 at 11:05

Ubisoft have just released their third quarter 2015-16 earnings report and have officially slated Watch Dogs 2 for release by April 2017. It's highly likely it will release later rather than sooner considering the amount of big franchise titles Ubisoft have lined up for release already.

Watch Dogs was one of those games that came with the Molyneux effect – great potential and promise that ended up compromised down to a product that felt unfinished and shallow. It'll definitely be interesting to see how they plan to win back some goodwill with WD2 as they clearly believe in the franchise's success. [More]

Get Hyped With New Quantum Break Trailer But You May Want To Hold Off From Pre-Ordering

Written by Joffy S on 12 February 2016 at 10:15

The dust is just beginning to settle after the announcement of Quantum Break coming to PC. It’s a big move on Microsoft’s part, taking a key Xbox One cornerstone and effectively ridding it of exclusivity. We’ve seen already the terrifyingly huge system requirements, but now we can actually wrap our eyes around a brand new Quantum Break trailer and see what the fuss is all about. Or not, as the case may be. 

But that’s not all, because Microsoft is also running a slightly strange promotion that may mean pre-ordering a copy of Quantum Break on PC is a bad move. Firstly Quantum Break looks as if it’s going to be a Windows 10 Store exclusive. And secondly, because anybody who pre-orders a digital copy of Quantum Break on Xbox One, will receive a 25-digit redemption code for a free copy of the PC version. [More]

Need For Speed Hits The PC Starting Grid Next Month With 4K Support And Uncapped FPS

Written by Neil Soutter on 11 February 2016 at 17:00

Having cruised onto consoles all the way back in November of last year, you could have been forgiven for forgetting the Need For Speed reboot even exists. Well it does, and we’ve been impatiently drumming our fingers, waiting for the merest sniff of news. EA has remained staunchly quiet, but at long last developer Ghost Games has broken the silence and confirmed Need For Speed is cruising onto PC on March 17th.

Waiting sucks though, so what exactly were we waiting for? Well, there’s just the small matter of an unlocked framerate and support for up to 4K resolution. The best looking version of Need For Speed, essentially, provided you’ve got the hardware to power it. [More]

Blade And Souls Hits 2 Million Active Players Already As Rising Tide Update Drops

Written by Stuart Thomas on 11 February 2016 at 16:00

By all accounts it’s a very tricky time to launch an MMO. Plenty have failed, but newly launched Korean martial arts MMO Blade & Soul seems to have avoided most major pitfalls and amass more than two million players in the US and Europe within just three weeks of launch.

Despite the massive influx of players, Blade & Soul creators NCSoft have remained true to their word and put together the first major content update for its newly launched MMORPG. Role-players have had just three weeks to plough through as much of the content that’s already on offer, but already Rising Waters adds a bunch of new features and areas to put hardened gamers to the test.

Quantum Break System Requirements Make It The Most Demanding PC Game Ever

Written by Joffy S on 11 February 2016 at 14:43

About an hour ago we didn't even know Quantum Break was coming to PC. Now it, Gears of War 4 and Scalebound are all confirmed to be making the leap. Quantum Break's first though, arriving day and date with the Xbox One version on April 5th. That's only a matter of about eight weeks away. 

Quantum Break is latest third-person shooter from Remedy Entertainment, they of Max Payne and Alan Wake fame. In it, you play as a time-bending antagonist following a disastrous time travel experiment. Players can reverse the direction of bullets, 'Time Rush' and bullet dive. That's all awesome news, but don't get ahead of yourself. Microsoft has also released the official system requirements for Quantum Break, and they make it comfortably the most demanding PC game of all time.  [More]

Quantum Break, Scalebound And Gears Of War 4 All Confirmed For PC

Written by Neil Soutter on 11 February 2016 at 14:10

I had written up and prepared an entire article about a rumour that Quantum Break was coming to PC day and date with Xbox One. Well I've basically had to burn that into smithereens, because Microsoft has gone and absolutely trumped that news with the announcement that not one, not two, but three upcoming Xbox One exclusives will be launching on PC.

They aren't messing around here either. This trio are big hitters. It's Quantum Break, Scalebound and Gears of War 4. That's three absolutely huge Xbox One exclusives coming to PC, with at least one coming day and date with the console version.  [More]

Dark Souls 3 Minimum System Requirements Revealed

Written by Joffy S on 11 February 2016 at 12:30

Dark Souls 3 is coming. That should be accompanied by an ominous, Inception-like BWAAH noise. The finale to the beloved trilogy is surely going to take no prisoners, capping a fine series with the grandest, most challenging outing yet. Expect screen-filling bosses, obtuse design, and enemies placed exactly where you'd least expect. Damn you Miyazaki, you swine. 

The game itself is pretty much a known quantity then - more of what we know and love. But what of the PC hardware needed to run Dark Souls III? Well have no fear because we've got you covered, like the warm glow of a bonfire, with official Dark Souls 3 minimum (and predicted recommended) system requirements. Onwards, brave soldiers.  [More]

Layers Of Fear Launch Trailer Paints A Grim Picture As It Flees Early Access

Written by Joffy S on 11 February 2016 at 11:40

Pant wetting psychological horror game Layers of Fear is transforming into its final, terrifying form next week, when it escapes from the clutches of Steam Early Access. A decent example of Early Access done right, in my eyes, Layers of Fear has been available in incomplete form for just six or so months.

Now the full deal is dropping, promising to plunge players into a warped tale seen through the eyes of an insane painter holed up in a Victorian mansion. He’s suffering from a serious case of painters block you see, and I’d hazard a guess he’s partaken in dangerous quantities of illicit substances from the twisted visions he’s seeing. [More]
