Bungie strikes the Dreadnaught in latest Twitch reveal

TTK_Crucible_A_Heroic_01

Bungie have just wrapped up their second reveal stream on Twitch, and this time it focused purely on the new mechanics for strikes.

Special guest Mr Fruit, of YouTube fame, joined Community Manager Cozmo and Gameplay Designer Claude Jerome as they explored the Dreadnaught, showcasing one of the new strikes coming next month.

The Shield Brothers takes place in the new Dreadnaught environment, as Guardians are tasked with stopping a Cabal onslaught against Oryx and the Hive. Based in the rings of Saturn, players will be hunting down the Cabal brothers, and taking on both Cabal and the new Taken enemies as they make their way to them.

The emphasis on new strikes for The Taken King is how the final boss encounter has changed, and players will no longer be facing bullet sponges, such as Valus Ta’aurc in the original Cerberus Vae III strike. Instead, they will have to think through strategies to take down this new adversaries.

Once your fireteam has made it’s way through the twisted corridors of the crashed Cabal ship, guided by the Hunter mentor Cayde-6, they will enter an arena-style final room where they will face the Shield Brothers. Both Valus Mau’ual and Valus Tlu’urn have their own personalities, and much like arcade games of old, it is up to the players to devise a strategy to take them down.

First up is Valus Mau’ual, whose attack is very similar to the Titan Fist of Havoc, ground pounding his way around the arena in an attempt to stop the Guardians in their tracks. Once you fight him down to approximately half health, he retreats, and his brother comes in to play. Valus Tlu’urn has a much more range to his attack, barraging players with his mortars, and once he too is » Continue Reading.

Alien coming to Mortal Kombat X?

mortal-kombat

A second Kombat Pack could soon be announced for Mortal Kombat X.

There has been a lot of speculation since the release of Tremor that a second Kombat pack will soon be on the way. Ed Boon has not confirmed or denied a Kombat Pack 2, but he does love to tease on his Twitter. He posted this a while back to showing off all Kombat pack 1 characters.

Now we all know Ed loves Alien and has posted a few things relating to it recently, Ed posted this pic on his twitter earlier today which I would say Alien is coming and there is a Kombat Pack 2.

There are a few non-playable characters from the story mode in Mortal Kombat X, Baraka, Rain, Sindel and Smoke. There could be a slew of characters coming to MKX in a way of more Kombat Packs in the future and one I can not wait to see is the infamous Spawn who was granted access to Mortal Kombat X by Todd McFarlane way back in Feburary but has not been used as of yet.

Spawn and Alien for KP2!!

It’s all change as Destiny heads into year two

TakenKing

After today’s live reveal of the changes coming into year two for Destiny, with The Taken King, it certainly seems that Bungie really have been listening to their fans.

There’s a lot to go through, so stay with me…

One of the biggest questions going into year two was how your Guardian’s levels would progress. Gone are the days where players would have to rely on RNG (Random Number Generator) to boost your level, and being “forever 29”. Going into year two, your level and light level are now separated. Levels are now achieved through traditional XP gain, and a new cap of 40 will be introduced. Every player who preorders The Taken King will also receive a item to help boost a new character to level 25, the base level for The Taken King, called a Spark of Light. This allows players to create a brand new character, and negates the necessity to play through the whole story again, to get to the relevant level for the content. This will be available from the Postmaster, so any new player looking to take advantage of this, will have to complete the initial story mission to access the Tower.

The Intellect, Strength, and Discipline values now also display far more meaningful values. Instead of a unknown number on a bar, players will now be able to see how long the cool down time, in seconds, for each ability is affected.

Light level, on the other hand, is still important, but is calculated differently to how it was before. Taking an average of the defence and attack values of your gear, your light level will now go into triple figures for the first time. For example, you may have a full set of armour, which each piece with a defence value of » Continue Reading.

Dying Light : The Following details and trailer revealed

DYINGLIGHT

After a successful showing at Gamescom 2015, Techland has released the reveal trailer for Dying Light: The Following – a story-based expansion set in a massive new area that’s as big as the original maps from Dying Light combined. Dying Light: The Following will see Kyle Crane travel to a hazardous outback ruled by mysterious and fanatical cultists whose beliefs have unnerving connections with the zombie outbreak.

To get close to the cult and unravel their secrets, players will need to earn the trust of the locals. Through various missions and tasks, players will be able to choose their own path for infiltrating the inner circles of the cultists. In order to succeed in this harsh countryside, players will also gain access to fully customizable and upgradable dirt buggies. With its own unique skill tree, players will be able to traverse the vast expanse of the Harran countryside in what is their deadliest weapon yet.

While a release date is still to be determined, Techland has confirmed that Dying Light: The Following will be priced at $14.99(UK and EURO pricing TBC but we suspect it will be between 12 – 15 €/£), while all Season Pass holders will receive the expansion completely free.

Penultimate episode of Tales from the Borderlands arrives next week

Tales-from-the-borderlands

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed Tales from the Borderlands from Telltales Games, although the wait between episodes is rather too long for my liking – thankfully the next episode is almost upon us, releasing on Xbox One and Xbox 360 sometime during August 19th.

Currently the gang find themselves in the company of Vallory and her goons, who also want the Vault beacon – their destination is the moon base Helios. Telltale like to tease, and while they haven’t given us a trailer (yet), apparently in episode 4  “sacrifices will need to be made”.
