Written by Katie Allen on 21 August 2014 at 17:00

It looks like Intel isn’t the only chip maker to be refreshing its processors this year. According to a new report, AMD will be launching a refreshed line-up of processors based on their x86 Piledriver architecture at the beginning of September, consisting of the FX-8370, FX-8370E and FX-8320E.

According to unconfirmed sources, AMD is trying to make its CPUs and APUs more competitive when compared to Intel’s Haswell Refresh and Devil’s Canyon designs. As well as the FX microprocessors, which are scheduled to release on 1st September, AMD is allegedly slashing prices on older FX models and will also launch a new budget chipset with USB 3.0 support.

Amazon Reveals Surprising Details Of Which Titles Saw Increased Pre-Orders After Gamescom

Written by Katie Allen on 21 August 2014 at 16:00

Amazon has unveiled just what impact Gamescom had on its pre-orders, letting us know which games came out of the conference with the biggest increase in terms of interest.

The changes aren’t quite what you might think, however. In spite of not even holding a conference at the expo, Nintendo was the company that increased pre-order the numbers the most, up an impressive 8.67% compared to before Gamescom 2014… [More]

EA Unveils Seven New Battlefield Hardline Screens, Includes Alligator

Written by Katie Allen on 21 August 2014 at 15:00

EA has released a host of new screenshots for upcoming cops 'n' crooks shooter Battlefield Hardline. Some of the screenshots look like they might have come from the game's Gamescom 2014 trailer, but we're pretty sure this is the first time most of them have been seen in the wild.

It's a cops-themed Battlefield, so much of it is what you might expect; car chases, gun fights and an apparent ongoing hostage station with a rather unhappy-looking moustached chap. There's also an alligator in one shot, which is slightly less expected, although we'd never say no to giant, man-eating reptiles in games. [More]

Ubisoft CEO Says Ubi Is Taking Note Of EA Access Subscription Program

Written by Stuart Thomas on 21 August 2014 at 13:30

Ubisoft’s CEO Yves Guillemot has stated that the company is looking carefully at EA’s “EA Access” subscription plan for the Xbox One.

The Ubi boss said that the concept was a good way for publishers to encourage gamers to try out different brands and franchises from a publisher, rather than sticking with just the one. In the same interview, he said that if more publishers adopted such a service, it could be a good way to attract gamers to new consoles and also increase diversity in gaming… [More]

New Unreal Engine 4 Video Render Shows Insane Photorealistic Environment

Written by Katie Allen on 21 August 2014 at 12:30

A new video has emerged online showing an environment rendered in Unreal Engine 4 with an almost mind-blowing level of realism; so much, so, that it’s hard to credit that the scene isn’t real.

The render was created by French dec Koola with a Geforce GTX 670 and an Intel i7-3770, so it’s a pretty hefty rig, but no more than a current high-end gaming PC. What’s really exciting about this isn’t so much what can be done now - after all, this is just an environment without the huge extra processing power needed to render gameplay of this realism - but the potential it shows for the future.

World Of Warcraft Fans Discover Three Robin Williams Tributes In Warlords Of Draenor

Written by Neil Soutter on 21 August 2014 at 11:30

After the tragic death of actor and comedian Robin Williams last week, Blizzard were one of the first to confirm it would include a tribute to him in the form of an NPC in World of Warcraft.

Robin Williams was well known as an avid gamer - he did, after all, name his daughter Zelda after the iconic Nintendo princess, and was a keen WoW fan - and it seems fitting he gained a tribute of the videogaming variety. Now, one World of Warcraft fansite has uncovered not one, but three character models named Robin the Entertainer whilst datamining upcoming expansion Warlords of Draenor… [More]

Codemasters Tease DiRT 4 By Social Media Trolling

Written by Katie Allen on 21 August 2014 at 10:25

Codemasters has used its Twitter account to send out a series of tweets that are either teasing DiRT 4 or are simply one of the meanest cases of trolling we’ve seen from a games company.

An initial tweet send out by Codemasters’ DiRT Twitter account simply read “4”, followed almost immediately by a second that read “oops sorry finger slipped”. Naturally, this provoked something of a Twitter storm as fans rushed to guess more about the apparent tease… [More]
