Fallout 4 System Requirements

Written by Joffy S on 08 October 2015 at 16:15

That sound you hear is the vault door opening after centuries of neglect. With a hiss the door slides and inside, at long last, sites the Fallout 4 system requirements. We're a shade over four weeks away from yet another mammoth RPG preparing to steal away our lives. Sensationally revealed in the run up to E3, we've only had to wait five months for it to hit stores.

Bethesda reckon it's going to be bigger, better, more complex and sprawling than any Fallout before it. It's undeniably one of the most anticipated games this holiday season. Before you put on your Pip-Boy and step out into the wastelands though, it's time to find out whether your gaming rig is as useful as an irradiated bottle of Nuka Cola, or a VATS headshot master, with the official Fallout 4 system requirements.

Hefty Witcher 3 Update Squashes The Final Bugs Ahead Of Hearts Of Stone DLC Launch

Written by Joffy S on 08 October 2015 at 14:38

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’s had a big ol’ patch ahead of the Hearts of Stone expansion next week. I mean big as well, the 1.10 update is easily the heftiest of many patches since its May launch. If you laid out the patch notes end to end they wouldn’t quite get to the moon and back, but they do fill up a 13-page PDF document. Which is basically a novella by that point. A novella of righted wrongs.

If you’re anything like me then your first port of call is probably heading to the broken quests section, where I was delighted to see The Empty Coop has finally been fixed. It’s been an absolute blight on my otherwise unblemished quest log. Why would that pesky woman not talk to me?! Among the hundreds of bug fixes and niggly little changes, CD Projekt RED has also taken an almighty stab at improving performance of The Witcher 3 across all systems. [More]

eSports Gain Mainstream Footing As BBC Agrees Deal For League Of Legends Live Coverage

Written by Stuart Thomas on 08 October 2015 at 13:30

In what’s probably the largest slice of news regarding eSports to come out of our fair isle, the BBC has said it will be showing the League of Legends World Championships Finals live on TV. The quarter finals are being held at Wembley Arena, with BBC Three hosting the entire event live. It’s undoubtedly one of the greatest leaps forward eSports has taken here in the UK, with League of Legends being granted mainstream coverage.

The League of Legends World Championships Quarter Finals will be taking place from October 15th over four days. Radio 1 DJ Dev Griffin, who’s reportedly a keen gamer, will be hosting the coverage, which will also include interviews with top team members and fans that have turned up to arena to watch the event.

Call Of Duty: Black Ops 3 Cybercore Abilities Lets You Unleash A Swarm Of Killer Bees

Written by Joffy S on 08 October 2015 at 12:30

Bring out a game each and every year and you’ll inevitably find it’s got to get crazier and crazier to keep people interested. Call of Duty’s been following the annual template for yonks now, but what does Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 bring to the table that’s actually different? Well, it seems as if Treyarch has been given free rein to go a little nuts with the cybernetic abilities this time around, with robotic killer bees, electricity-fuelled punches, and remote grenade detonation.

These unique talents comes courtesy of the new ‘Cybercore’ skills. That basically translates to cybernetic modifications, with various different Cybercore packs containing different skill sets. A new Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 trailer demonstrates the Chaos Cybercore abilities which are designed to panic and confuse enemy troops before you can stroll in and pick them off with ease. [More]

Bethesda Admits Development Of Multiplayer Shooter BattleCry Could Be In Trouble

Written by Neil Soutter on 08 October 2015 at 11:01

It seems like marketing suicide to admit as much, but Bethesda has said it's concerned about the quality of its free-to-play hack ‘n’ slasher BattleCry, and is in the process of evaluating it. Looking at the early trailers it didn’t take a genius to work out it wasn’t looking top-tier, but this is the first tacit admission that BattleCry could be on the rocks.

The news emerged from an official statement Bethesda published. "We have concerns about the BattleCry game and whether it is meeting the objectives we have for it," Bethesda’s statement reads. "We are evaluating what improvements the game needs to meet our quality standards. The studio remains busy during this process on multiple projects." [More]

PC Gamers Can Gain Access To Street Fighter V Beta From October 22

Written by Stuart Thomas on 08 October 2015 at 10:15

Fighting game fans on PC are getting a bit of a treat early next year, as Street Fighter V's arriving day and date with the PlayStation 4 version. Sony’s still trumpeting it as an ‘exclusive’, but PC players will be able to square off in cross-platform play against their console counterparts.

Ahead of then Capcom’s busy getting testing. A second Street Fighter 5 beta test has been announced following August’s disastrous PS4 stress test. This time around PC gamers are invited, beginning from October 22nd and running through until October 25th. Fingers crossed it actually works this time. [More]

Nvidia Claims GTX 970 Is Only Sufficient For Medium Visuals In Star Wars Battlefront

Written by Joffy S on 07 October 2015 at 16:30

Ahead of the Star Wars Battlefront beta test which goes live tomorrow, Nvidia has weighed in on those lofty system requirements. The multiplayer shooter has a brand new Intel CPU as a minimum, with a hefty GTX 970 or R9 290 needed to hit recommended specs, along with an insane 16GB RAM.

Issued in a statement along with a new GeForce 358.50 driver release, Nvidia said “Based on our own testing, Electronic Arts’ recommendation of a GeForce GTX 970 will give gamers 60 frames per second and above at 1920x1080, with medium detail settings, in the Walker Assault’s 40-player battles. Higher detail levels will require more powerful GPUs, such as the GeForce GTX 980 and 980 Ti, as will higher resolutions.” [More]

Capcom Producer Hints At Imminent Resident Evil 7 Reveal

Written by Neil Soutter on 07 October 2015 at 15:32

After mucking about with spin-offs, remakes and remasters, it was kind of inevitable that Capcom’s attention would eventually return to the mainline Resident Evil series. Resident Evil producer Masachika Kawata has suggested as much, hinting we could hear about Resident Evil 7 soon.

Kawata was speaking with Japanese gaming mag Dengeki Playstation when he spilled the beans, saying "We’re currently not at a state to talk about it… but please stay tuned." That sounds like confirmation of its existence to me.  [More]

HTCs Vive Is Impressive But Valve Could Be Worried About The Viability Of Room-Space VR

Written by Joffy S on 07 October 2015 at 13:30

If you’ve been keeping track of VR, and Valve and HTC’s Vive in particular, you’ll know it’s not necessarily cheap to set up. All signs point to the HTC Vive being the most expensive of the bunch, but it’s also going to be the trickiest to set up. The reason Valve reckon you’re going to pick up an HTC Vive ahead of the rest is because of room scale VR.

This basically maps out a virtual reality environment into a room. The ideal size is 4.5m square, which is about 15 feet by 15 feet. This entire area needs to be clear of obstructions, but once it’s mapped out you’ll be able to walk about it and interact with things. This all sounds great in theory, but not everyone’s going to have the room to get the HTC Vive up and running. It’s clearly something playing on Valve’s mind, as it’s published a new survey asking fans about room scale VR and where they’re going to set their HTC Vive up. [More]
