CD Projekt RED Not Talking About Cyberpunk 2077 Until At Least 2017

Written by Neil Soutter on 27 May 2015 at 15:15

Now The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has come along and swept us off our feet, anticipation for CD Projekt RED’s other project has only grown in stature. Cyberpunk 2077 was originally revealed back in 2013, but CD Projekt RED and sci-fi fans should brace themselves for a bit of disappointment.

CDPR CEO Adam Kicinski has said the Polish developer won’t even be talking about Cyberpunk 2077 until at least 2017, claiming 2015 and 2016 are all about The Witcher 3. It looks like we could have quite the wait on our hands for the promising role-playing game, but Kicinski reckons Cyberpunk 2077 will be an even bigger commercial success than The Witcher 3 has been.

Until Dawn Slashes Onto PlayStation 4 In August

Written by Joffy S on 27 May 2015 at 14:00

Supermassive Games has announced its cinematic survival horror game Until Dawn will be released on August 25th in the US and August 26th in Europe. There’s a brand new trailer to celebrate the announcement, giving us a slice of the action from this slasher thriller.

It looks as if Until Dawn will be going full blown butterfly effect with its choices, with the trailing indicating a massive branching storyline where every character in the game lives or dies by your decisions. That and the fickle nature of an axe-wielding mass murderer. [More]

Battlefield Hardline: Criminal Activity Expansion Pack Trailer Released

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

EA and Visceral Games have taken the cuffs off Battlefield Hardline’s Criminal Activity DLC in a new trailer. The urban battles between cops and criminals continue apace with four new maps - Code Blue, The Beat, Black Friday and Backwoods.

Code Blue is centred around an exclusive nightclub, bathed in an eternal neon glow, stretching from street level up to rooftop battles. The Beat meanwhile is a run-down suburban district, complete with tenements and even a pimped out low-rider. These are joined by the run and gun shopping mall antics of Black Friday and the rural swamps of Backwoods. [More]

Leaked Screens Of Windows 10 Build 10125 Demonstrate Cosmetic Changes

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

While the Windows 10 Technical Preview has been in the hands of many PC gamers for months now, it’s been anything but the finished product. Updates are rolling out thick and fast as we barrel towards the operating system’s anticipated summer launch, and these latest leaked screenshots from Windows 10 build 10125 give us a good idea of what to expect from Microsoft’s latest OS.

This latest build isn’t expected to roll out into a public release, so most of the changes here we won’t be seen until Windows 10 launches officially. A number of tweaks here are cosmetic, with new icons for folders, drives and more, as well as changes to the appearance of the Taskbar and File Explorer. [More]

Intel Claims Moores Law Will Continue Until At Least 7nm Chips

Written by Neil Soutter on 26 May 2015 at 17:30

We’ve barely got the 14nm die shrink in our hands but Intel has claimed it already knows how to produce 7 nanometre chips. Intel’s continuing battle with Moore’s Law continues apace, with fabrication of central processing units using the 10nm process beginning next year, and the jump to the smaller 7nm node already planned after that.

The traditional methods of die shrinking for manufacturing microprocessors will eventually come to an end, but Intel believes there’s some life in it yet with these 7nm plans. “After 10nm, comes 7nm and we feel very confident that we have line of sight of how to manufacture that node,” said Renee James, president of Intel, during a Q&A session with stockholders at the company’s annual meeting. “Overall, we think, we are in a very good shape.” [More]

Find Out What Makes Mad Max Tick In Savage Road Story Trailer

Written by Joffy S on 26 May 2015 at 16:30

If Mad Max: Fury Road hasn't done anthing to sate your appetite for post-apocalyptic car-crushing mayhem, Avalanche Studios could have just what you need with its Mad Max game coming later this year. The Just Cause 3 developer looks to have a lot on its plate at the moment, but if the Savage Road trailer for Mad Max is any indication, it’s onto a winner.

Having already taken a look at the gameplay components, Savage Road focuses on the storyline and the characters wrapped up in this open-world action adventure. Despite the Mad Max movie coming out earlier this month, the game has no narrative connection, with original characters, setting, and storyline - but just as many pyrotechnics. [More]

AMD Driver Leak Reveals R9 300 Series Graphics Cards Are Rebrands

Written by Stuart Thomas on 26 May 2015 at 14:45

A leaked AMD driver has all but confirmed our fears - the upcoming AMD Radeon 300 series is basically a rebrand of the Radeon R200 series, with the exception of the new Fiji GPU being used for the unnamed high-end Radeon R9 flagship graphics card.

It increasingly appears as if the Fiji GPU will be spun off into its own entity, much like Nvidia’s Titan series, offering up the best of the best performance from an AMD Radeon graphics card. Now back to those rebrands, and in the table below you can see how this is going to pan out, with a number of last-generation GPUs given a fresh lick of paint and presumably minor clock speed bumps.
