Need For Speed Hits The PC Starting Grid Next Month With 4K Support And Uncapped FPS

Written by Neil Soutter on 11 February 2016 at 17:00

Having cruised onto consoles all the way back in November of last year, you could have been forgiven for forgetting the Need For Speed reboot even exists. Well it does, and we’ve been impatiently drumming our fingers, waiting for the merest sniff of news. EA has remained staunchly quiet, but at long last developer Ghost Games has broken the silence and confirmed Need For Speed is cruising onto PC on March 17th.

Waiting sucks though, so what exactly were we waiting for? Well, there’s just the small matter of an unlocked framerate and support for up to 4K resolution. The best looking version of Need For Speed, essentially, provided you’ve got the hardware to power it. [More]

Blade And Souls Hits 2 Million Active Players Already As Rising Tide Update Drops

Written by Stuart Thomas on 11 February 2016 at 16:00

By all accounts it’s a very tricky time to launch an MMO. Plenty have failed, but newly launched Korean martial arts MMO Blade & Soul seems to have avoided most major pitfalls and amass more than two million players in the US and Europe within just three weeks of launch.

Despite the massive influx of players, Blade & Soul creators NCSoft have remained true to their word and put together the first major content update for its newly launched MMORPG. Role-players have had just three weeks to plough through as much of the content that’s already on offer, but already Rising Waters adds a bunch of new features and areas to put hardened gamers to the test.

Quantum Break System Requirements Make It The Most Demanding PC Game Ever

Written by Joffy S on 11 February 2016 at 14:43

About an hour ago we didn't even know Quantum Break was coming to PC. Now it, Gears of War 4 and Scalebound are all confirmed to be making the leap. Quantum Break's first though, arriving day and date with the Xbox One version on April 5th. That's only a matter of about eight weeks away. 

Quantum Break is latest third-person shooter from Remedy Entertainment, they of Max Payne and Alan Wake fame. In it, you play as a time-bending antagonist following a disastrous time travel experiment. Players can reverse the direction of bullets, 'Time Rush' and bullet dive. That's all awesome news, but don't get ahead of yourself. Microsoft has also released the official system requirements for Quantum Break, and they make it comfortably the most demanding PC game of all time.  [More]

Quantum Break, Scalebound And Gears Of War 4 All Confirmed For PC

Written by Neil Soutter on 11 February 2016 at 14:10

I had written up and prepared an entire article about a rumour that Quantum Break was coming to PC day and date with Xbox One. Well I've basically had to burn that into smithereens, because Microsoft has gone and absolutely trumped that news with the announcement that not one, not two, but three upcoming Xbox One exclusives will be launching on PC.

They aren't messing around here either. This trio are big hitters. It's Quantum Break, Scalebound and Gears of War 4. That's three absolutely huge Xbox One exclusives coming to PC, with at least one coming day and date with the console version.  [More]

Dark Souls 3 Minimum System Requirements Revealed

Written by Joffy S on 11 February 2016 at 12:30

Dark Souls 3 is coming. That should be accompanied by an ominous, Inception-like BWAAH noise. The finale to the beloved trilogy is surely going to take no prisoners, capping a fine series with the grandest, most challenging outing yet. Expect screen-filling bosses, obtuse design, and enemies placed exactly where you'd least expect. Damn you Miyazaki, you swine. 

The game itself is pretty much a known quantity then - more of what we know and love. But what of the PC hardware needed to run Dark Souls III? Well have no fear because we've got you covered, like the warm glow of a bonfire, with official Dark Souls 3 minimum (and predicted recommended) system requirements. Onwards, brave soldiers.  [More]

Layers Of Fear Launch Trailer Paints A Grim Picture As It Flees Early Access

Written by Joffy S on 11 February 2016 at 11:40

Pant wetting psychological horror game Layers of Fear is transforming into its final, terrifying form next week, when it escapes from the clutches of Steam Early Access. A decent example of Early Access done right, in my eyes, Layers of Fear has been available in incomplete form for just six or so months.

Now the full deal is dropping, promising to plunge players into a warped tale seen through the eyes of an insane painter holed up in a Victorian mansion. He’s suffering from a serious case of painters block you see, and I’d hazard a guess he’s partaken in dangerous quantities of illicit substances from the twisted visions he’s seeing. [More]

Frozen Synapse 2 Is Coming To Tax Your Grey Matter In 2016

Written by Stuart Thomas on 11 February 2016 at 10:15

I’ve realised today that I’m still trying to get my head around the fact Frozen Synapse and Frozen Cortex aren't one and the same thing. But they very much aren’t! Confusion is sparked from the similar style you see, and the fact they’re both from developer Mode 7 Games. I tell you this because they've just announced Frozen Synapse 2, which is the simultaneous-turn-based tactical one. Oh damn, that doesn’t help. It’s the one that’s not like American Football!

Frozen Synapse 2 is coming then, a sequel to the tactical pseudo turn-based top-down strategy game which won our hearts and beat our brains into a pulp. It’s like Doorkickers before Doorkickers was even a thing. Things are changing up significantly for the sequel though. Where Frozen Synapse was all about small, procedurally generated levels, Frozen Synapse 2 is set to take place in an open world, of all places. [More]

American Truck Simulator PC Low vs Ultra Graphics Benchmark Video

Written by Jacques Waugh on 10 February 2016 at 17:00

Over the last decade or so, certain genres of gaming have established their place in the industry and created an entire submarket of games for players to enjoy. While genres such as first person shooters and role playing games may be the first one on everyone's mind, simulation games have slowly risen to popularity beyond just the niche of people who directly work in the industry.

American Truck Simulator is the latest entry and seems set to follow the success of its Euro Truck sister franchise  and so we hopped in a cab, turned the country blues to full and tested the game's PC performance using our MSI AMD Radeon R9 380 2GB graphics card. [More]

The Walking Dead Michonne Mini-Series Kicks Off With Episode 1 - In Too Deep This Month

Written by Neil Soutter on 10 February 2016 at 15:45

Like the zombies that inspire it, Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead is one episodic series that just won’t stay down. Nor should it of course; The Walking Dead has gifted us with some of the finest adventure gaming in years over the course of two seasons. It’s corpse is shambling up for more this month, with Telltale announcing the first episode of its The Walking Dead: Michonnethe  mini-series is coming soon.

The Walking Dead: Michonne - Episode 1: In Too Deep kickstarts the spin-off, which focuses on Michonne from the original comics and TV series. She hasn’t cropped up in the games yet so she might not be familiar to everyone, but the general gist of it is that she leaves the main group for a while early on, and this mini-series will explore what zombie slaying she got up to in her downtime.
