The Sims 4 Recommended System Requirements

Written by Katie Allen on 27 August 2014 at 17:00

As you might remember from a few weeks back, we caught sight of The Sims 4 minimum system requirements in July, but at that time EA only told us what kind of rig we'd need for minimum settings. As anticipated, they were pretty low, albeit a slight increase since The Sims 3.

Now, however, we've got hold of The Sims 4 recommended requirements, so we can now see what EA claims we'll need to run the game on maximum settings. It's a significant jump compared to The Sims 3, and a fairly big one compared to minimum, but you won't need a killer rig to run on high settings by the looks of things. We've taken a look at them in detail. [More]

Written by Neil Soutter on 27 August 2014 at 16:00

Capcom is suing Dynasty Warriors publisher Koei Tecmo over what it claims is a patent infringement spanning Samurai Warriors: Xtreme Legends and 49 other games published by the Japanese company.

According to sources, the lawsuit is to the tune of a whopping 980 million yen, which translates to just under $9.5 million, and is related to a couple of game functions patented by Capcom in 2002. [More]

Rumour: Saints Row 5 Might Be Announced At PAX On Friday

Written by Katie Allen on 27 August 2014 at 14:30

You can place this strongly in the “unconfirmed” pile of today’s news, but it seems Deep Silver Volition may be on the verge of announcing Saints Row 5.

Deep Silver just revealed that Volition plans to announce its next project at PAX this Friday, August 29th. Of course, that doesn’t necessarily mean Saints Row, but the fact that the project will be announced during a panel held by Saints Row Producer Jim Boone and Saints Row voice actress Natalie Lander means that the irreverent open-world franchise just shot straight to the top of our “likely candidates” list.

Metro Redux may have already launched in the USA yesterday, but 4A Games has released another huge bunch of screenshots showing the game's maximum potential off, including Metro 2033 Redux's greatly enhanced dynamic lighting.

Ahead of Friday's European release of the game, these screens show a bunch of content from both Last Light Redux and 2033 Redux.

Bethesda Details The Evil Within Voice Cast, Includes Some Familiar Names

Written by Neil Soutter on 27 August 2014 at 12:30

Bethesda has unveiled a video detailing the voice cast in The Evil Within, and there’s some pretty familiar figures among them, particularly for those who know Dexter and Watchmen.

Protagonist Detective Sebastian Castellanos will be voiced by Anson Mount, known recently for his role in Western series Hell on Wheels, but it’s the voice of the main antagonist Ruvik that might have you waking up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat. [More]

Dragon Age: Inquisition Will Have Co-Op Multiplayer Mode

Written by Katie Allen on 27 August 2014 at 11:30

In a rather surprising announcement, BioWare has revealed that it is bringing four person co-op multiplayer to Dragon Age: Inquisition, marking a significant change to what has traditionally been an entirely single-player oriented series, and following in the footsteps of Mass Effect in adding a multiplayer component.

The multiplayer is an entirely separate mode to the Dragon Age: Inquisition single-player campaign, so those purists who want to keep it a solo endeavour should have no issues doing so. The multiplayer will take the form of big and randomly generated maps designed for up to four people to battle through checkpoints in 20 to 30 minute sessions. [More]

EA Expects To Make A Billion Dollars From DLC This Year

Written by Katie Allen on 27 August 2014 at 10:30

EA is expected to generate a mind-boggling amount of revenue from its DLC, if recent reports are to be believed. In a statement made to Bloomberg, an EA spokesperson stated that this additional content would rack up somewhere in the region of $1 billion if sales go according to plan.

Of course, 2014 will be a pretty DLC-heavy year this year. As well as the always lucrative Madden series of games, The Sims 4 is also launching next month, and will undoubtedly be followed by its usual raft of expansion packs. [More]

The Crew Capped At 30 FPS On PC, Unlocking Cap May Affect Game Performance

Written by Katie Allen on 26 August 2014 at 17:00

Ubisoft may have promised last week that it was committed to improving performance of its games on PC, but that claim is likely to be greeted with some skepticism after it emerged yesterday that The Crew on PC would have its frame rate artificially capped for stability.

According to a Ubisoft community manager on the forum for the PC beta of The Crew, the game will run at 30FPS for its final release on PC. Whilst it will be possible to raise the frame rate cap to 60FPS manually, this may “affect the game’s performance”. [More]
