Written by Joffy S on 31 March 2015 at 15:15

Late last week Microsoft announced a free-to-play Halo game would be coming to PC, in Russia only for now. In development at Saber Interactive, the first gameplay footage of Halo Online has leaked in a 17-minute video.

PC gamers have been calling out for more of the Master Chief since Halo 2 way back in 2007, and on first impressions Halo Online looks like it could be answer to our prayers. Graphically it looks like an up-ressed version of Halo 3, playing out like a combination of the Xbox 360 title and its Halo: Reach spin-off. [More]

Sales Of Nvidias GeForce GTX Titan X Exceeding Demand

Written by Stuart Thomas on 31 March 2015 at 12:45

It might have a $1000 asking price but that doesn’t seem to be deterring PC gamers from picking up Nvidia’s GeForce GTX Titan X in vast numbers. Nvidia’s flagship graphics card is currently the fastest single-GPU card on the market, and the need for more graphics power has seen demand outstrip supply throughout Europe.

Over on a GTX Titan X will set you back €1,199 but that hasn’t deterred buyers, with the German online store admitting in a recent interview “the demand exceeds the available hardware. We have already sold impressive numbers and we are getting new GeForce GTX Titan Xs sent to the warehouse.” [More]

Written by Joffy S on 31 March 2015 at 11:45

No more will you have to feel guilty when the sun’s blazing down outside and you’re staying indoors for an Unreal Tournament session - the next-generation solar-powered graphics cards will ensure peak gaming PC performance when the sun is at its brightest.

Power demands of cards from 2018 and beyond are likely to be so demanding the power output from a typical PSU will be unable to cope with top-end gaming performance. [More]

Details Revealed Of Next-Gen AMD Greenland Radeon GPU - Arriving In 2016

Written by Joffy S on 31 March 2015 at 11:30

All eyes might be firmly fixed on AMD’s R9 300 series of graphics cards, but AMD is already looking ahead to 2016, when its next-generation high bandwidth memory (HBM) GPU will arrive. The new graphics processing unit we now know will be codename ‘Greenland’, and is expected to replace the Fiji GPU and go head-to-head with Nvidia’s Pascal.

The R9 400 series Greenland GPU will support the second generation of HBM memory, doubling the density, speed, and bandwidth of the first-generation memory used on AMD’s imminent Radeon R9 390X. As part of the ‘Arctic Islands’ family of graphics card products, the Greenland GPU will likely support DirectX 12 Tier 3 and the upcoming Vulkan API. [More]

Written by Neil Soutter on 31 March 2015 at 10:15

Ubisoft has revealed a new trailer for Rainbow Six: Siege, demonstrating a brand-new class-based operator system. Five distinct classes are available for both attackers and defenders, with each granted unique skills, weapons, and abilities.

Each and every operator will have a member of the opposite team with counter-abilities poised to take them down, in intense rock, paper, scissor encounters. [More]

Dead Or Alive 5 PC Port Misses Several Key Features - No MP Support At Launch

Written by Joffy S on 30 March 2015 at 16:30

If you’ve been keeping an eye for the long-delayed PC port of Dead or Alive 5, you might be best off holding onto your cash for a little while. Initial reports suggest this is exactly the sort of slapdash port we’d feared.

In amongst the graphical downgrade we head of a few weeks ago, the PC edition of Dead or Alive 5: Last Round out today comes without basic functions such as Steam Achievements, Steam cloud saves, key rebinding, and, most bizarrely, multiplayer support or any kind. [More]
