Leaked AMD Slide Reveals Zen CPU Core Block Diagram

Written by Joffy S on 28 April 2015 at 17:30

A diagram has leaked ahead of a May 6th embargo, appearing to introduce AMD’s Zen micro-architecture. While this should be taken with a pinch of salt, the slide looks to be from an internal AMD presentation detailing a block diagram of the upcoming CPU.

The Zen architecture is set to feature inside AMD’s upcoming Summit Ridge microprocessor family, and this block diagram reveals AMD is renewing focus on per-core performance rather than delivering more cores. The Integer Pipeline of Zen will be widened by 50% in comparison to the Excavator Modules, providing two massive 256-but schedulers. [More]

Warner Bros Unveil Details Of 33 GBP Batman: Arkham Knight Season Pass

Written by Stuart Thomas on 28 April 2015 at 15:15

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has announced details of the Batman: Arkham Knight Season Pass. Coming in at a wallet-shredding £32.99 ($50), the Season Pass promises to pack in six months worth of post-launch content.

To put that into perspective, Battlefield 4’s Premium Pass is a little more expensive at £39.99, as is Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’s £34.99 Season Pass. In terms of single-player games however, the Batman: Arkham Knight Season Pass is easily the most expensive we’ve seen, and is almost double the price the base game can be pre-ordered for over on Nuuvem at the moment.

Project CARS Multiplayer Trailer Focuses On Its Competitive Edge

Written by Joffy S on 28 April 2015 at 14:00

Batting aside AI opponents is all well and good in Slightly Mad Studio’s Project CARS, but the simulation racer is looking to really come into its own when it’s mano a mano, in the online multiplayer mode.

Slightly Mad will be including full public, friend, and private lobbies to hang out in, with support for massive 32-player lobbies on PCs in 64-bit mode, and a total of 16 players on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Online racing in Project CARS won’t just involve random events either. Events can be hosted, with specific races kicking off at pre-determined times, with players free to turn up to the lobby early to post qualification times and jump up the starting grid. [More]

Worlds Of Magic Review : World Weary

Written by Stuart Thomas on 28 April 2015 at 12:45

They say don't judge a book by its cover, but Worlds of Magic is one of the least-inspired names for a videogame since... well, I suppose since Age of Wonders III. Perhaps it's all part of the style - fantasy-themed 4x games need to be called (Age, World, Lords, Land) of (Legend, Magic, Wonders, Marvels, Beards, Empires, Dragons, Wizards). But it does rather make them difficult to keep separate in your mind. Unless, of course they're really good like Age of Wonders III.

The flip-side doesn't hold true, naturally. Land of Beards drifts into the subconscious quicker than... Hold on, what? The game I reviewed was called Worlds of Magic? OK, fine, whatever. Lands of Magic is pretty much a by-the-numbers afterthought made to cash in on its claim to being a 'spiritual successor' of that old classic, Age of Legends. Or whatever. I don't know. [More]

First Ever Just Cause 3 Gameplay Trailer Released

Written by Neil Soutter on 28 April 2015 at 11:30

Let’s face it, we all knew Just Cause 3 was going to be most joyously explosive ball of pyrotechnic joy set to plop onto store shelves this year, and it’s first ever trailer is testament to that. Gung-ho action, suicidal sky-dives, and a penchant for destruction are the order of the day here, as Avalanche take the series’ trademark antics to the sunny Mediterranean island of Medici.

Square Enix and Avalanche Studios say this entire trailer has been captured straight from actual gameplay footage, as Rico Rodriguez uses an entire arsenal in his mission to destroy the island’s evil dictator, General Di Ravello. [More]

Valve Stands Down And Removes Paid Steam Workshop Mods

Written by Stuart Thomas on 28 April 2015 at 10:15

Valve’s foray into paid Steam Workshop mods is at an end already, just a matter of days after the service went live. The move had sparked controversy among PC gamers, who opposed the direction Valve was taking the modding community.

In a statement, Valve’s Alden Kroll wrote “We're going to remove the payment feature from the Skyrim workshop. For anyone who spent money on a mod, we'll be refunding you the complete amount. We talked to the team at Bethesda and they agree. [More]

Rumour: AMD Doubling Radeon R9 390X HBM To 8GB

Written by Joffy S on 27 April 2015 at 17:00

We’re getting very close indeed to a full reveal from AMD if its upcoming R9 300-series graphics cards, but ahead of then fresh rumours have emerged suggesting AMD is doubling the memory on its flagship Radeon R9 390X graphics card.

If true then the 4GB of high bandwidth memory (HBM) will be joined by another, for a total of 8GB memory. Rather than wait it out for second-generation HBM, these rumours indicate AMD bit the bullet and stacked up two 4GB HBM chips in a 2.5D configuration. This is also set to be joined by a watercooler variant of the R9 390X at launch. [More]

Written by Joffy S on 27 April 2015 at 15:40

With Grand Theft Auto 5 out the way and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt fast approaching, all of our attention is soon about to turn towards the much-anticipated return of Rocksteady. Almost four years in the making, it’s looking like Batman: Arkham Knight is going to be difficult to resist, particularly once you’ve sneaked a peek at the sumptuous new “All Who Follow You” trailer.

If you’re trying to resist spoilers ahead of its release in June then this trailer probably isn’t for you just now, but it does highlight some all-new features coming to Batman: Arkham Knight unheard of up until now. Chief among these is the inclusion of Robin, Catwoman and Nightwing; not only will you be able to play as Batman’s allies, but you’ll be able to switch seamlessly between characters mid-combat, performing enhanced combos.
