Kraken Skulls In New Civilization: Beyond Earth Trailer

Written by Neil Soutter on 02 September 2014 at 11:30

Firaxis’ latest strategy game looks like an epic experience in the truest sense of the word, so to help get your head around everything that Civilization: Beyond Earth offers a new 7-minute overview video has been release. Showing many of the basic gameplay mechanics and combat strategies, as well as Virtues, the Orbital Layer, and Purity Affinity, this trailer’s also got a good old bout of Kraken-bashing to boot.

The infamous sea monster of legend isn’t confined to the Nordic coasts it seems, with the alien planets also host to this gigantic sea dweller. When you’re not going 20,000 leagues beneath the sea though you’ll be wading through Civilization: Beyond Earth’s hex-based gameplay, which looks to play a lot like Civilization V, albeit with a few new layers and the ever-present challenge of colonising a potentially hostile world.

Alone In The Dark: Illumination Debut Trailer And Screens Showcase Co-op Gameplay

Written by Stuart Thomas on 02 September 2014 at 10:15

Atari has release the first trailer and screens for its upcoming Alone in the Dark game, Alone in the Dark: Illumination. It’s a somewhat paradoxical title seeing as you won’t even be alone in this four-player co-operative shooter, set in the abandoned Virginia mining town of Lorwich which has been on the receiving end of a huge flood.

Players will be able to choose from a selection of four characters in Alone in the Dark: Illumination, ranging from Hunter to Priest, Engineer, and even a Witch in either online or offline adventuring as you investigate the strange events happening in the town. Strange creatures are emerging from the night and a dark, rolling fog has encompassed the entire town, as players battle a strange, supernatural force dubbed The Darkness. [More]

Rockstar Updating GTA 5 Soundtrack For PC And Denies Delay Rumours

Written by Jon Sutton on 01 September 2014 at 17:30

Contrary to rumours circulating last week, the Grand Theft Auto V remaster has not been delayed and will be arriving on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One later this year. Rockstar reiterated that it was on target for a 2014 release following leaked information suggesting it wouldn’t see the light of day until the new year. Responding to a fan on the support page, a Rockstar representative confirmed it was still on track although there was nothing to show just yet.

Little has been seen of GTA 5 for PC and current-gen since its existence was confirmed at E3 2014, alongside a trailer which showcased the impressive improvements coming to the port. Rockstar has been quiet on a release date since, sticking only to its original “Fall 2014" listing. We know the studio’s been busy though, with news emerging that all-new content is being recorded for GTA V’s radio stations exclusively for the remastered version.

World Of Warcraft Director Claims More Than A Decade Of Content Is Already Planned

Written by Neil Soutter on 01 September 2014 at 16:30

Blizzard has claimed that it already has as many as seven World of Warcraft expansions planned for its long-standing title, looking at taking the MMORPG into its second decade and beyond. While the World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor expansion is arriving in November, the next expansion is already in active development, with plans in place for many more after that.

Warlords of Draenor is WoW’s fifth full-blown expansion, but Blizzard doesn't have any plans to stop anytime soon, despite subscriber numbers falling to a 9-year low of 6 million. “I think it’ll be quite a while before the financials indicate that it’s just not worth doing anymore," said World of Warcraft’s director Tom Chilton.

Rumour: Activision Looking To Buy GTA 5 Publisher Take-Two

Written by Stuart Thomas on 01 September 2014 at 12:45

Activision could be planning to make an offer to buy out Grand Theft Auto V publisher Take Two, according to a recent report from Benchmark analyst Mike Hickey. Both of the publishing giants are reportedly looking at getting into the movie industry, and Activision thinks its connections can help in bringing Take-Two franchises like GTA to the big screen.

Between them Take-Two Interactive and subsidiary 2K Games own the rights to some massive series, including Civilization, BioShock, Borderlands, XCOM, and a host of 2K sports series. According to Hickey “acquiring Take-Two Interactive would be a no-brainer”, combining some of the strongest IPs and development talent in the world into a single entity. [More]
