First Picture Of Michael Fassbender In Assassins Creed Movie Revealed

Written by Stuart Thomas on 27 August 2015 at 17:30

Assassin’s Creed, much like the majority of videogame movie ideas mooted, seemed like something that would never actually happen. As it turns out it is, and honest-to-goodness Hollywood star Michael Fassbender is taking the lead role. The first image of Fassbender as an assassin has just leaked along with the first plot details of the upcoming movie.

The film is simply titled Assassin’s Creed, and it will be set in 15th century Spain, a time period previously untouched by any of the Assassin’s Creed games. Fassbender’s playing Callum Lynch in the modern day before finding out he’s genetically connected to Assassins and strapping himself into the Animus. In the machine he relives the life of his 15th century ancestor, Aguilar. [More]

AMD Reveals Radeon R9 Nano And Its Not Cheap - 649 USD RRP

Written by Joffy S on 27 August 2015 at 15:15

AMD has officially revealed the Radeon R9 Nano in all its tiny glory. The mini-ITX graphics card is packing some incredible hardware into its short length, but it’s certainly not going to be easy on your wallet. After months of rumours and speculation, AMD has announced the R9 Nano will be retailing for an eye-watering $649. This is the same price as the full fat Radeon R9 Fury X, and $100 more expensive than the air-cooled Radeon R9 Fury.

Essentially, AMD is charging the same price as the Fury X for a product that delivers lesser performance. The thinking behind it is that its small size makes it a unique proposition. There’s a few mini-ITX GTX 970’s from various graphics card manufacturers out there, but nothing with the level of performance the R9 Nano offers. [More]

Divinity: Original Sin 2 Funded On Kickstarter In Just 12 Hours

Written by Neil Soutter on 27 August 2015 at 14:00

Divinity: Original Sin 2 has just launched on Kickstarter, and it’s already smashed through its $500,000 goal in less than 12 hours. The tactical role-playing sequel has already amassed $624,878 at the time of writing, with 34 days still to go on its Kickstarter campaign.

The speed of the funding has taken even developer Larian Studios by surprise, with it posting a video update admitting it hadn’t even finalised the stretch goals yet. It’s working double time behind the scenes and the stretch goals should be in place later today in you want to thrown some money their way. [More]

Turok: Dinosaur Hunter And Turok 2: Seeds Of Evil Being Remastered For PC

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

I have no idea how these are going to hold up in this day and age, although I’d hedge my bets on badly, but serial remasterer Night Dive has announced N64 classics Turok: Dinosaur Hunter and its sequel, Turok 2: Seeds of Evil, are being given a bit of spit and polish and made compatible for modern PCs.

The original Turok came in 1997, followed by the sequel in 1999. Even at the time they weren’t exactly the belle of the ball, but it’s bows, cerebral bores and dinosaurs, so who are we to complain. Night Dive has previously worked on ports of System Shock 2 and I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream, so expect minor graphical improvements and a few other tweaks under the hood. [More]

Ubisoft Announces Nov 19 Launch For Assassins Creed Syndicate PC And Explains Delay

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

Ubisoft has finally announced when Assassin’s Creed Syndicate will be coming to PC, announcing a November 19th release date. This is roughly a month after the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions, which arrive on October 23rd worldwide.

It wasn’t so long ago that we expected the PC editions of Assassin’s Creed to arrive a little later, but Ubisoft tried a different tack last year with Unity, and we all know how that ended up. As you’d expect Ubisoft has its reasons for delaying the PC port of Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, which revolves around creating the most stable and optimised version of the game possible. [More]

Fable Legends Is Set To Be A Windows 10 Store Exclusive On PC

Written by Neil Soutter on 27 August 2015 at 10:15

A Lionhead employee has revealed via Twitter that Fable Legends will not be releasing on Steam. Instead, the four vs one action-RPG will be coming exclusively to the Windows Store on Windows 10. This is the first confirmation we’ve heard of Microsoft’s plans to launch games exclusively on the Windows Store, and if true we expect Gears of War: Ultimate Edition to follow suit.

The news comes via Lionhead’s social media coordinator Lauran Carter, who when asked whether the PC version of Fable Legends will be available on the Windows 10 Store or Steam, replied “It will be available on Windows 10 but not Steam”. [More]

Final Specs And First Performance Benchmarks Of AMD Radeon R9 Nano Revealed

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

AMD is preparing its tiny Radeon R9 Nano for release very soon, so the first concrete details are surfacing for the mini-ITX graphics card. The smallest member of the AMD Radeon Fury family, the R9 Fury will be the most powerful graphics card designed for mini-ITX in existence, with early benchmarks indicating performance fairly comparable to the fully fledged R9 Fury X.

On the specifications side of things, the Radeon R9 Nano comes loaded with a Fiji GPU, packing 4096 stream processors on 64 compute units, 256 TMUs, 64 ROPS, and 4GB of High Bandwidth Memory clocked at 1GHz, all set in on a mammoth 4096-bit memory interface. If you needed any confirmation of the performance of this diminutive card, the Radeon R9 Nano has compute performance of 8.19 TFLOPS, just shy of the 8.6 TFLOPS for the Fury X. [More]

Hard West Is XCOM, Spaghetti Western Style - New Video Shows Full Mission Run-Through

Written by Stuart Thomas on 26 August 2015 at 15:15

Take anything and stick it in the Wild West and it invariably becomes amazing. The gunslingers, saloons, cheap whisky and Mexican standoffs make it the perfect fodder for videogames, but we still get precious few. Hard West is tackling this problem head on, fusing tactical turn-based gameplay with tobacco chewing mayhem and a hint of the supernatural.

Think XCOM meets Clint Eastwood and you’re on the right the right track Hard West. You might remember it from a while back on GD, when it was successfully funded via Kickstarter. It’s heading to PC very soon, and in the meantime Creative Forge Games has revealed a full run through of a mission. Hard West producer Pawel Kroenke is on hand for a tour of the game’s Aspirton Bank Robbery mission. [More]

Assassins Creed Syndicate Pre-Order Nets Exclusive Missions With Dickens And Darwin

Written by Neil Soutter on 26 August 2015 at 14:00

Ubisoft loves pre-order bonus, so it should come as little surprise that Assassin’s Creed Syndicate will be riddled with them. If you’re willing to stump up the cash ahead of launch you’ll get access to an exclusive set of missions centred around the two Charlies - Darwin and Dickens. The former's proclivity for eating dodos and the latter's for writing literature for the ages is all well and good, but the pair do come with a mighty fine set of facial furniture to admire. 

How Ubisoft has created an Assassin’s Creed set in Victorian London and dodged the Jack the Ripper era is anybody’s guess, but in his place we’ve got the two of the greatest minds of the times. Jacob and Evie Frye will both meet up with this historical pair throughout the campaign, but the pre-order bonus includes a further set of missions comprising ghost hunts and propaganda. [More]
