Star Wars Battlefront looks to the stars

Star-Wars-Battlefront

It was only a few days ago that I was writing about how EA was reaching out to its community to help further develop their games and include content that the players wanted. Now this is not new as has been done for a while with the Battlefield Series, even if some of it fell on deaf ears. However EA and its associated development teams seem to have gone into overdrive for the new year and over the last 48hrs we’ve been bombarded with news of free content, map updates, scheduled development and release plans for the coming months. Included in this wealth of information was Star Wars Battlefront.

As of today, well after the maintenance period is over, players will be treated to a few nice amendments in the already great Star Wars Battlefront game and just for you here is what you can expect.

    The Tatooine Survival map will now support the Blast, Droid Run, Drop Zone, Hero Hunt, and Heroes vs Villains multiplayer modes, and is called Raider Camp. New Hoth-themed outfits for Luke Skywalker and Han Solo, both of which will be available to all fans when they play as these two iconic characters on Hoth – these were unlocked for completing the Heroes’ Holiday community mission last month. Players will have the ability to create Private Matches, which makes playing with friends even easier. The introduction of Daily Challenges and Community Events. Some overall balancing tweaks to both weapons and multiplayer modes.

It doesn’t stop there though and in February DICE have promised to add even more content including a new Survival mission on Hoth, and a brand-new Hoth multiplayer map that will support the larger game modes including Walker Assault, Supremacy, Fighter Squadron and » Continue Reading.

Infinity’s Armory brings new content to Halo 5: Guardians

Halo-5

Halo 5: Guardians first content update for 2016 is upon us and looking at its content it’s only fitting that its take the name of  the largest and most powerful vessel designed by the UNSC. The Infinity’s Armory update brings a whole host of new content to the game in the form of new maps, new armour, weapons skins and even a blast from the past in the form of the Battle Rifle from Halo 2.

Players can now fight it out in two new battlegrounds, Riptide and Urban. For the lovers of the Arena gameplay Riptide challenges players who will need to quickly learn the winding routes of steel and sand to excel in its weathered structures. Urban brings an open map to Warzone Assault that has many sightlines, a perfect map for sharpshooters as you battle to control ‘The Armory’ situated on the top of a grassy hill.

The Halo 2 Battle Rifle makes a welcome return to the game as a Mythic loadout weapon REQ to deploy in Warzone. The Halo 2 Battle Rifle is also unlocked in Forge for those who want to recreate Halo 2 maps and take their nostalgia to the next level. Along with this comes two new Carbine REQS in the form of Rain of Oblivion, an uncommon upgraded carbine with fully automatic action and an extended magazine and Blood of Suban, a rare advanced carbine that that fires armor-piercing Needler shards.

Last but not least we have the new ACHILLES armour set, but stop right there it’s not going to be as easy as walking in and picking it off the shelf. To receive this armor your Spartan Company must achieve Level 3 in all Kill Commendations and to get the helmet Spartan Companies must achieve » Continue Reading.

Pure Pool – Snooker DLC review

PurePoolLogo

Mr Richard Berry and myself have spent a fair bit of time playing Pure Pool, it’s one of those games that’s perfect for a lazy hour. The chilled out environment, sexy lounge music and a game that is simple enough to play. When I say simple, it is for me, as I’m great at pool and when I talk about the chilled environment, it is, except for the tones of rage coming from Rich’s headset as another cue ball ends up in the bar…

That has all changed thanks to the newly released Snooker DLC, all of a sudden the rage is coming from my headset while Berry thinks he is the next Ronnie O’Sullivan. The first three frames backed this up as he battered me three-nil!

Great for him, not for me. Anyway, I digress. The DLC is exactly what you expect from Ripstone, it looks good and plays really well, abeit a few niggles. While taking shots you can stand back to plan your shot but you can’t move round the table fully, which would make things much easier. Also a top down view would be nice but for the sake of realism I can let that one slide.

It’s also a bit of a shame you can’t set up a league against your friends, which is always good for bragging rights. The DLC does follow on from the game in terms of presentation, the snooker tvake gets its own room  away from the pool tables, complete with house band but it’s the same music from the main game. Rather oddly the cue ball seems to have a pink tint to it, possibly because of the lighting, it’s a bit off-putting but not a major problem. We also noticed that a few times the game suggested that one » 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.

Neverwinter: Strongholds trailer

Neverwinter

Neverwinter: Strongholds – the seventh expansion for the action MMORPG set in the Dungeons & Dragons’ Forgotten Realms universe from Wizards of the Coast is due for release.

Strongholds introduces the largest playable map released for Neverwinter and focuses on players banding together to take back a stronghold from the wild. The initial release will focus on player-versus-environment gameplay in order to allow guilds the opportunity to build their strongholds before taking the fight to other players when large scale player-versus-player content launches.

Reminiscent of early Dungeons & Dragons gameplay, Neverwinter: Strongholds empowers guilds to reclaim a keep and its surrounding wilderness areas from monsters. As the lands are cleared, guilds will build defenses both in and around their strongholds using structures like archer towers to fend off attackers, while building siege structures to increase their ability to wage war against enemy guilds. Once the keep has been secured, guilds will work to solidify their foothold along the ranges of the Sword Coast.

Neverwinter : Strongholds is due for PC launch on August 11th with an Xbox One release to follow shortly thereafter.
