Microsoft Reports Windows 10 Has Been Installed On More Than 75 Million Machines

Written by Joffy S on 28 August 2015 at 13:15

Microsoft has announced Windows 10 has unsurprisingly got off to a bit of a flyer. So far its new operating system has been installed on more that 75 million machines throughout 192 countries. That means 1 in 93 of the planet’s population has got hold of Windows 10 in the four weeks since its launch.

The sky-high numbers were revealed by Microsoft’s corporate vice president for marketing, Yusuf Mehdi, who presented a series of impressive stats about its latest operating system. The 75 million figure takes into account PCs and tablets, with more than 90,000 unique hardware models making the jump to Windows 10. Mehdi claimed the oldest devices that upgraded date back as far as 2007, which I’m sorry to say is the category my laptop falls into. But hey, it’s a record holder for something at least. [More]

Written by Neil Soutter on 28 August 2015 at 11:45

Gears of War creator Cliff ‘CliffyB’ Bleszinski has taken the wraps off of BlueStreak, or Project BlueStreak if you like, and erm... it turns out it’s actually called LawBreakers. The team at Boss Key Studios has settled on LawBreakers then which isn’t the most inspiring name, but lest we judge a book by its cover, we’ve got the first details on this multiplayer shooter.

Set nearly a hundred years in the future, 2105 to be precise, the moon has been blown into cosmic smithereens during an event that has gone down on Earth as ‘The Shattering’. In further proof that you shouldn’t smash something up until you know good and proper what it does, the detonation of the moon has forever altered Earth’s gravity, causing all sorts of carnage.

Dinobots And Wanton Destruction - Its The New Transformers Devastation Gameplay Trailer

Written by Stuart Thomas on 28 August 2015 at 10:15

I didn’t think I’d ever be saying this about a Transformers game once Michael Bay had got his hands on the franchise and battered it into submission, but Transformers: Devastation is looking legitimately great. It’s an homage to Saturday morning cartoons and the third-person action games popularised two or three generations ago.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance and Bayonetta developer Platinum Games is heading up development on Transformers: Devastation and it’s imprint is clear to see. The action-packed brawler is all about stylish combos, blazing action and over the top set-pieces. What’s clear is you get to knock seven shades out of other big metal robots with your own big metal robot that can turn into a big fire-breathing metal dinosaur. I mean, what’s not to love? [More]

First Picture Of Michael Fassbender In Assassins Creed Movie Revealed

Written by Stuart Thomas on 27 August 2015 at 17:30

Assassin’s Creed, much like the majority of videogame movie ideas mooted, seemed like something that would never actually happen. As it turns out it is, and honest-to-goodness Hollywood star Michael Fassbender is taking the lead role. The first image of Fassbender as an assassin has just leaked along with the first plot details of the upcoming movie.

The film is simply titled Assassin’s Creed, and it will be set in 15th century Spain, a time period previously untouched by any of the Assassin’s Creed games. Fassbender’s playing Callum Lynch in the modern day before finding out he’s genetically connected to Assassins and strapping himself into the Animus. In the machine he relives the life of his 15th century ancestor, Aguilar. [More]

AMD Reveals Radeon R9 Nano And Its Not Cheap - 649 USD RRP

Written by Joffy S on 27 August 2015 at 15:15

AMD has officially revealed the Radeon R9 Nano in all its tiny glory. The mini-ITX graphics card is packing some incredible hardware into its short length, but it’s certainly not going to be easy on your wallet. After months of rumours and speculation, AMD has announced the R9 Nano will be retailing for an eye-watering $649. This is the same price as the full fat Radeon R9 Fury X, and $100 more expensive than the air-cooled Radeon R9 Fury.

Essentially, AMD is charging the same price as the Fury X for a product that delivers lesser performance. The thinking behind it is that its small size makes it a unique proposition. There’s a few mini-ITX GTX 970’s from various graphics card manufacturers out there, but nothing with the level of performance the R9 Nano offers. [More]

Divinity: Original Sin 2 Funded On Kickstarter In Just 12 Hours

Written by Neil Soutter on 27 August 2015 at 14:00

Divinity: Original Sin 2 has just launched on Kickstarter, and it’s already smashed through its $500,000 goal in less than 12 hours. The tactical role-playing sequel has already amassed $624,878 at the time of writing, with 34 days still to go on its Kickstarter campaign.

The speed of the funding has taken even developer Larian Studios by surprise, with it posting a video update admitting it hadn’t even finalised the stretch goals yet. It’s working double time behind the scenes and the stretch goals should be in place later today in you want to thrown some money their way. [More]

Turok: Dinosaur Hunter And Turok 2: Seeds Of Evil Being Remastered For PC

Written by Stuart Thomas on 27 August 2015 at 12:45

I have no idea how these are going to hold up in this day and age, although I’d hedge my bets on badly, but serial remasterer Night Dive has announced N64 classics Turok: Dinosaur Hunter and its sequel, Turok 2: Seeds of Evil, are being given a bit of spit and polish and made compatible for modern PCs.

The original Turok came in 1997, followed by the sequel in 1999. Even at the time they weren’t exactly the belle of the ball, but it’s bows, cerebral bores and dinosaurs, so who are we to complain. Night Dive has previously worked on ports of System Shock 2 and I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream, so expect minor graphical improvements and a few other tweaks under the hood. [More]

Ubisoft Announces Nov 19 Launch For Assassins Creed Syndicate PC And Explains Delay

Written by Joffy S on 27 August 2015 at 11:30

Ubisoft has finally announced when Assassin’s Creed Syndicate will be coming to PC, announcing a November 19th release date. This is roughly a month after the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions, which arrive on October 23rd worldwide.

It wasn’t so long ago that we expected the PC editions of Assassin’s Creed to arrive a little later, but Ubisoft tried a different tack last year with Unity, and we all know how that ended up. As you’d expect Ubisoft has its reasons for delaying the PC port of Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, which revolves around creating the most stable and optimised version of the game possible. [More]

Fable Legends Is Set To Be A Windows 10 Store Exclusive On PC

Written by Neil Soutter on 27 August 2015 at 10:15

A Lionhead employee has revealed via Twitter that Fable Legends will not be releasing on Steam. Instead, the four vs one action-RPG will be coming exclusively to the Windows Store on Windows 10. This is the first confirmation we’ve heard of Microsoft’s plans to launch games exclusively on the Windows Store, and if true we expect Gears of War: Ultimate Edition to follow suit.

The news comes via Lionhead’s social media coordinator Lauran Carter, who when asked whether the PC version of Fable Legends will be available on the Windows 10 Store or Steam, replied “It will be available on Windows 10 but not Steam”. [More]
