Ubisoft Massive Claim The Division Is First And Foremost A Proper RPG Experience

Written by Jon Sutton on 22 October 2014 at 17:30

Tom Clancy’s The Division has been on the backburner in recent months as Ubisoft hypes Assassin’s Creed Unity, Far Cry 4, and The Crew to hell and back. Despite this it’s still one of the most anticipated games in the world, despite the relatively few details we’ve received on it so far.

Ubisoft outfit Massive Entertainment is helming the project, and The Division’s brand art director Rodrigo Cortes has been explaining during a recent interview how the post-apocalyptic shooter will in fact be a proper RPG, including loot, grinding, and levelling up in a devastated real-world New York.

New FIFA 15 Patch Should Fix Stuttering Issues On PC And PlayStation 4

Written by Jonnie on 22 October 2014 at 16:30

EA has released the second patch for FIFA 15 for the PC and PlayStation 4 versions of the game. The Xbox One patch is set to follow soon. Among several problems that the patch will rectify will be an end to stuttering gameplay that some PS4 players have reported, along with improvements to the difficulty settings.

Players on the PlayStation 4 version of the game will be especially pleased to hear of the new update. The stuttering problem has occurred when the PS4 is connected to the internet and affects gameplay both on and offline, rendering the game pretty much unplayable at times. Up until now some players have had to disable UPnP on their routers to get the game running smoothly, but this latest update should get things back on track. [More]

Styx: Master of Shadows Review : The Bigger They Are....

Written by Mukul Gupta on 22 October 2014 at 15:15

I am sure all of us have had that one song that has wormed its way into our head from an advert, but when we set out to look it up we find out that it's the same tune over and over again, and not the eargasm we were hoping for.  That's Styx: Master of Shadows in a nutshell. What starts out as an excellent salute to various stealth features we have come to know and love all-too-quickly becomes stale and begins to feel like a low-budget attempt at making a new Thief game. 

Styx: Master of Shadows begins with a small starting cutscene giving the story its foundation. You are Styx, the only Goblin on the planet, and you are looking for The Heart of the World-Tree in a man-made place called the Atrium. Here humans use Elves to harvest precious Amber from the World Tree. Unfortunately Styx has been captured by the Governor of the humans and thus Master of Shadows is told in flashbacks while Styx is being interrogated by the humans. [More]

Paranautical Activity Developer Steps Down Following Gabe Newell Threats

Written by Jonnie on 22 October 2014 at 14:00

Mike Maulbeck, the controversial Paranautical Activity developer has resigned from his role at the games studio Code Avarice. The renegade developer hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons yesterday in a Twitter based rant threatening Valve boss Gabe Newell. The very public rant included an ill-advised death threat toward Gabe Newell that, despite being hastily removed, resulted in Paranautical Activity being removed from Steam.

Maulbeck has now sold his share of the company to co-owner Travis Pfenning and parted ways with the studio. Both Maulbeck and Pfenning have posted statements on the Code Avarice website to explain the situation fully. Maulbeck, who seems to have fully realised the damage that his actions caused, admitted that his actions “resulted in not only my own dreams and aspirations being destroyed, but those of the entire team I worked with.” He went on to concede that his temper had got away from him, and issued a sincere apology again to Valve and Gabe Newell.

Blizzard May Be Planning To Show Off Brand New Title At BlizzCon 2014

Written by Neil Soutter on 22 October 2014 at 12:45

It’s safe to say Blizzard’s got some nifty surprises up its sleeves for this year’s BlizzCon event, the fan conference for anything and everything Blizzard. Fresh from announcing a live concert at the event from the biggest name in thrash metal, Metallica, it appears that Blizzard has left a mighty 2-hour undisclosed slot on the main stage at BlizzCon 2014 from noon until 2pm.

Leaving a gap like that is something that Blizzard has never done before, leading some to speculate that Blizzard could be planning to show off a brand new game at BlizzCon. Backing this up is the news that there is also unaccounted floorspace in one of the halls, suggesting there may be hands-on area with the new title. [More]

Free Shadow Of Mordor DLC Lets You Play As Antagonist The Black Hand

Written by Jon Sutton on 22 October 2014 at 10:15

Free downloadable content aren’t the words you expect to see often, so we were more than a little bit surprised when Warner Bros Interactive announced a totally free playable character for Monolith’s Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor.

The new character is part of the The Power of Shadow bundle which is available to download now, letting players take on the role of Sauron’s servant, the Black Hand. The Black Hand is normally an antagonist in the main game but the tables are turned with this DLC, which also provides three new Epic Runes granting more combat abilities. [More]

Far Cry 4 Season Pass Will Get You An Encounter With The Yeti

Written by Jonnie on 21 October 2014 at 17:30

Ubisoft has revealed the first details of Far Cry 4's inevitable season pass, following the announcement earlier this week of what the Kyrat Special Edition includes. Amid a selection of bonus missions and an exclusive PvP mode, the feature that is sure to tempt most players to fork out will be the Valley of the Yetis mission.

In a game set in a mountainous fictional Nepal, with a broad selection of dangerous wild animals to take on like elephants, rhinos and tigers, it seems only fitting that the legendary beast gets a spot in the limelight. The Far Cry 4 season pass isn’t cheap though, anyone wanting to take on the sasquatch on his own turf will have to cough up an abominable £23.99 for the privilege. [More]

Valve Takes Down Paranautical Activity From Steam After Gabe Newell Death Threat

Written by Jonnie on 21 October 2014 at 16:15

Valve has removed the indie roguelike first-person-shooter Paranautical Activity from Steam after the game's developer tweeted a death threat toward Valve head man Gabe Newell. The issue that led to Paranautical Activity being removed began when it became apparent that the final release of the game, out in time for Halloween, was still marked as being in Early Access despite its full retail launch happening yesterday.

Paranautical Activity’s developer Mike Maulbeck chose the very public sphere of Twitter to vent his frustration at Valve’s error in no uncertain terms. However when is tirade of anger culminated in a tweet that read “I am going to kill gabe newell. He is going to die”, Valve decided to put an end to the fiasco once and for all at that point and the pulled the plug on its Steam storefront activity. Despite the tweet in question being hastily deleted by Maulbeck, the damage was already done. [More]
