Gamescom 2015 - Latest Mirrors Edge Catalyst Trailer Is Free-running Perfection

Written by Neil Soutter on 05 August 2015 at 11:15

A five-minute gameplay demonstration of Mirror’s Edge Catalyst managed to single-handedly steal the show during EA’s Gamescom 2015 press briefing. The run-through shows an entire mission as Faith bounds across the cityscape with the aim of infiltrating the towering Elysium skyscraper. We get the low-down on Faith’s full-range of free-running abilities, which lets her clamber across rooftops and up buildings in seconds.

Which is all just as well, because it isn't long before Faith attracts some unwanted attention. Rather than relying on an itchy trigger finger however, she must make use of her nimble abilities to outfox guards and evade their gunfire. [More]

Gamescom 2015 - DICE Announces 40-Ship Star Wars Battlefront Fighter Squadron Mode

Written by Stuart Thomas on 05 August 2015 at 10:40

I thought Star Wars Battlefront was going to have a tough time becoming even more of a spectacle, but EA has taken the wraps off of a 20-play Fighter Squadron mode. In a move that should stave off the ‘no space battles’ critics, Fighter Squadron pits 10 vs 10 human players, with an additional 20 AI-controlled ships paving the way to massive 40-ship battles.

Fighter Squadron’s all about dogfighting, with aerial combat between some of Star Wars’ most iconic ships. The Hero power-up also makes a return, so players can even taken control of the Millennium Falcon or Boba Fett’s Slave-1 for some Battlefield domination. X-Wings, A-Wings, TIE fighters, Interceptors; you name it, you can weave it through laser fire and crash it into terra firma with a thud. [More]

Gamescom 2015 - Fresh Need For Speed Trailer Shows The Journey From Zero To Hero

Written by Stuart Thomas on 05 August 2015 at 10:05

EA kicked off its Gamescom 2015 press conference with a bit of street racing style, showing off a new trailer for the upcoming Need For Speed reboot. A branching narrative and a deep customisation system lie at the heart of Ghost Games’ racer, with a blend of in-game and live-action cutscenes throughout the game’s single-player campaign.

A number of real-life racing ‘icons’ will be cropping up in Need For Speed, including Ken Block, Magnus Walker, and the Risky Devil racing crew. It seems Ghost Games really is pushing the story this time around. The inclusion of live-action footage and real characters is intended to create a more involving experience. Or a teeth-gnashing exercise in corny acting, but we’ll have to wait and see. [More]

Homefront: The Revolution Is Alive And Kicking At Gamescom - Check Out Two New Trailers

Written by Joffy S on 04 August 2015 at 17:31

Few games deserve a sequel less than Homefront. The original couldn’t have been more middling if it tried. But here we sit, four years, three developers and three publishers later, with Deep Silver and Dambuster Studios’ Homefront: The Revolution. It was a bit of a surprise showing during Microsoft’s Gamescom press briefing, but we did get our first look at actual gameplay.

Homefront: The Revolution is set four years after the original, and the Korean invasion of North America is wholly successful. The protagonist Ethan Brady isn’t best pleased, and he’s organising a resistance movement in the suburbs of Philadelphia. During the live event I actually noted it looked a heck of a lot like Half-Life 2, and in the PR blast we got sent out that’s exactly how they’re keen to pitch it. We’ve got the first pair of trailers, cinematic and gameplay, so you can judge for yourself whether Homefront 2 is a revolution or stuck in 2004 with Half-Life 2. [More]

Total War Dev Creative Assembly Working On Halo Wars 2 For Windows 10 PCs And Xbox One

Written by Neil Soutter on 04 August 2015 at 16:51

Tucked in right at the end of its Gamescom 2015 press conference, Microsoft had one big blockbusting surprise left for PC gamers. 343 Industries, in conjunction with Total War developer Creative Assembly, is working on Halo Wars 2 for launch in 2016.

Halo Wars 2 is a sequel to the Xbox 360 real-time strategy game set within the Halo universe. The original was created by the now defunct Ensemble Studios, so it’ll be interesting to see what strategy specialists Creative Assembly can do with it in their hands. We’ve got the very first trailer of Halo Wars 2, which is coming in fall 2016 for Windows 10 PCs and Xbox One. [More]

First Dark Souls 3 Gameplay Footage Premiered

Written by Joffy S on 04 August 2015 at 16:20

Microsoft’s Gamescom 2015 press conference might have been extremely Xbox One-heavy, but we did at least get our first look at Dark Souls 3 in action. Souls fans will be instantly at home here; Dark Souls 3 looks like an evolution rather than a revolution, ramping up the spectacle and the scale of the battles on offer.

From Software’s darkly atmospheric action-RPG sequel looks like it also takes a few cues from Bloodborne in its pacier combat and Gothic environments. Expect plenty of bruising boss battles, punishing combat, and a healthy pinch of macabre adventure. [More]

Gamescom 2015 - Microsoft Xbox Press Conference Live Stream

Written by Stuart Thomas on 04 August 2015 at 14:30

Microsoft’s kicking off Gamescom 2015 in Cologne this afternoon, presenting its Xbox press conference. It’s only six weeks since E3, but Microsoft reckons it’s got plenty of top-tier stuff to show off. In fact, Xbox head honcho Phil Spencer recently claimed there were just too many games for it to cram into its impressive E3 showcase.

It’s good for us, because it means more surprises from Microsoft. The tantalising trio of Quantum Break, Crackdown and Scalebound are leading the charge, but we’re also holding out hope that Microsoft has some more goodies in store for PC gamers. You can tune into the Xbox Games press conference live via the link below. It kicks off today at 7AM PT / 10AM ET / 3PM BST.  [More]

The Mole: Mad Max Could Be Delayed On PC

Written by The Mole on 04 August 2015 at 13:15

Update: We've contacted Warner Bros and it reiterated that Mad Max "will be released on 1st September, 2015 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. PC will be available via digital only in the UK."

We’re just shy of a month away from Mad Max careening onto store shelves with his souped up Magnum Opus, but The Mole’s been hearing a few whispers this might not be the case for PC gamers. He’s had his ear to the ground and there’s been one or two murmurings that all is not going exactly to plan for the PC release of Warner Bros' and Avalanche Studios' open-world action game. [More]

Intel Skylake CPU Series Pricing Announced

Written by Joffy S on 04 August 2015 at 12:45

The pricing details are finally out for the first wave of Intel Skylake central processing units. Intel will be sticking to its guns with the Skylake-S range, pricing the next-generation processors roughly in line with its current Haswell and Broadwell chips, which will be getting phased out.

For gamers the headline acts are the unlocked Intel Core i7-6700K and the Intel Core i5-6600K. The pair are expected to be officially launched during Gamescom tomorrow, and will be priced at $316 and $225 respectively. The i7-6700K comes packing four cores and HyperThreading for eight threads, with a basic clock of 4.0GHz and a boost frequency of 4.2GHz. Meanwhile the Core i5-6600K will be a quad-core 3.5GHz CPU with a turbo boost of 3.9GHz. [More]
