It seems some new details have emerged online via the latest issue of Future Publishing’s GameMaster magazine. Although nothing has appeared on either Capcom’s official press site or other industry press sites, details look pretty solid.
Claire Redfield will return as the playable lead and it is said that “In the time since we last saw her (Claire), she’s grown to be a seasoned veteran.” Claire will be joined throughout the campaign with Moira Burton, daughter of the legendary Barry Burton. The campaign will be playable in co-op or singleplayer. When playing as Claire, her style will be more combat focused. Whereas Moira will be supplying Claire with health herbs, provided the flashlight and general support. Claire will be the only player death that will result in a Game Over, one of Moira’s key roles will be to help keep Claire alive (though Claire can obviously heal herself). The story will take place on an abandoned island detention facility. The campaign will begin with Claire and Moira awakening after being abducted. The events will take place between the events of Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6. Gameplay will be much more Survival Horror orientated (much like the first Resident Evil: Revelations), bringing the series back to its roots with less over the top action, unlike Resident Evil 5 and 6. Fan feedback has played a part in the development of Resident Evil: Revelations 2. Producer Okabe said that “The project has been finding the line between listening to fan feedback and also doing something different to confound expectations.” Okabe also said that “I want this to be both a game that doesn’t lose what made its predecessor great, while also bringing something new and exciting to the Resident Evil series.” He also added that » Continue Reading.
So in a bid to increase the hype even more (like Destiny actually needed any more!), Activision have teamed up with one of the UK’s leading YouTuber’s Ismail aka ‘MoreConsole’ to stage the moment The Traveler arrived above Earth, for real with just 1 day before worldwide release.
The behind-the-scenes video follows below including the official release from Activision immediately below. Enjoy and don’t forget to let us know if you’ll be playing tomorrow.
At least that’s what it looks like – as Ismail launched a weather balloon into near space this week successfully recreating one of the iconic images from Destiny. The image was captured in the outer atmosphere, via a high-altitude weather balloon 107,841 thousand-feet above Earth, to celebrate the imminent arrival of the game ahead of its launch across the world on 9th September.
The idea was inspired by some of the game’s artwork, which shows The Traveler arriving above Earth. In Destiny’s lore, it was the discovery of The Traveler that heralded Earth’s Golden Age, during which a lost civilisation explored the Solar System and built colonies on Mars and Venus. When players begin their adventure in Destiny, the Golden Age has collapsed and The Traveler is found hovering low above Earth, over what is humanity’s only sanctuary on the planet – the last safe city on Earth.
As a Guardian of the City, players must fight countless battles against our enemies, venture out to explore our lost colonies and unlock the great mysteries of the past in order to protect their future on Earth.
What better way to celebrate the Traveler, which plays a crucial role in the story of Destiny, than by bringing one of the most iconic images of the entire campaign to » Continue Reading.

Capcom are set to bring back the highly demanded and fan favourite classic 1996 (later 2002) Resident Evil title in a definitive re-visit on both the Xbox 360 and Xbox One (amongst other platforms).
That’s right Barry, what is this news?
Today Capcom did indeed announce that in early 2015 we’ll be able to digitally purchase this new remastered version for both of our beloved Xbox consoles and PC. At present we don’t have any footage or screenshots to share (a potential for GamesCom maybe?) but we do have a collection of artwork and the full press release below. Oh and of course the announcement video from Producers Yoshiaki Hirabayashi and Tatsuya Kitabayashi.
If like me and many of our generation (late 20’s – early 30’s(ish)) you remember staying up late playing this on the Playstation or Sega Saturn, being scared witless by the vicious dogs jumping through corridor windows, and then not being able to sleep for the rest of the night, then this will truly be a great walk down memory lane.
Enjoy the details below. And keep your eyes on ThisisXbox.com for more news and updates as we get them.
Using the latest resolution enhancement and 3D model technology, game resolutions and textures have been significantly upgraded, including 1080p support on next-gen consoles, resulting in characters and backgrounds coming to life in greater detail than ever seen before in Resident Evil. Not only will the graphics impress but the tense sound effects have been fully remastered with 5.1 surround support for a greater gaming atmosphere. Players are now able to choose not only between experiencing the terror at the classic 4:3 ratio or a stunning 16:9 widescreen mode but also the type of control scheme they play with. » Continue Reading.
Sacred 3 tells the story of five heroes working together to stop the evil Lord Zane from retrieving the “Heart of Ancaria” and opening the gates of the Underworld and unleash its armies on the world of Ancaria. This is the third game in the series but the first under developer Deep silver who acquired the license from the original developer Ascaron Entertainment. This is my first time with the series so can it do justice to the popular series?
Sacred 3 is a top down Hack n Slash game that uses RPG elements in order for players to customise the combat style of their chosen fighter by using XP to level up abilities, weapons and armour as you progress through the game. From the start of the game you can pick from any of five cultures, each represented by a hero from the Seraphim, Safari, Ancarian. Khukuri and new to the series, the Malakhim. This culture will be included in the First Edition version of the game available on release day as DLC along with the ‘Underworld’ Mission pack which adds four missions which will see you fight your way to the top of a sinister tower where the Black Seraphim will be waiting, an evil not seen such Sacred 2.
Once you have selected your hero it is time to step into the world of Ancaria. I chose the newest Culture of Malakhim due to his dual blades combat style. You will have a guide throughout the game in the form of Aria who will provide tips on what needs to be accomplished and where to go during story missions. What struck me straight away is how the dialogue in the game does away with the cheesy ‘ye olde’ style of fantasy speaking and » Continue Reading.
