Written by Neil Soutter on 28 August 2014 at 13:15

Quake Live has had a massive update ahead of its imminent launch on Steam, bringing in a raft of changes and improvements to the classic Quake III Arena formula. But, and there’s always a but, the fans aren't happy, with many outraged at the alterations occurring to id Software’s beloved shooter.

Among other things players can now automatically bunny hop, choose weapon loadouts, all friendly fire has been disable, and even method for automatic strafing has been added. If there’s one thing worse than no change for gamers then it’s change though, and longtime fans of the game are pretty miffed that id is making some fundamental changes to the base Quake Live gameplay.

Written by Stuart Thomas on 28 August 2014 at 12:00

BioWare has release the first gameplay trailer of its upcoming co-operative multiplayer mode included in Dragon Age: Inquisition. Revealed just yesterday, the new multiplayer mode allows you and up to three other people to roam huge randomly generated maps, fighting off all manner of beasties in bitesized half-hour sessions.

This trailer’s our first look at it in motion yet. In the co-operative mode four players will team up and become agents of the Acquisition, choosing from a selection of 12 different characters in fast-paced combat. It'll be included as an entirely separate mode from Dragon Age 3: Inquisition’s main single-player campaign, which itself can last players as long as 200 hours to see and do everything.  [More]

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 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.
