The Division: Underground DLC announced, lets you go underground - duh

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: Jun 14, 2016 5:13 am

E3 2016 - The Division's next update is called Underground, which will take players through the sewers and gritty tunnels of new York City.

 

 

Underground is the first of three new expansions, with the second one called Survival. Ubisoft teased the new The Division v1.3 update during their E3 2016 press conference, saying that Underground will include new features and loot. Underground will also let gamers go into the subways, tunnels and sewers of New York City, each with random layouts.

 

The new v1.3 update to The Division also includes a new Incursion called Dragon's Nest, which will be bigger than those that were in previous updates. Set in Hell's Kitchen, it will feature the Cleaners as the main enemy, as they continue their "haphazard and dangerous attempts" to burn the virus out of the area.

Crackdown 3 delayed to 2017, supports cross-buy on Xbox One and PC

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: Jun 14, 2016 4:09 am

E3 2016 - Crackdown 3 was missing at Microsoft's E3 press conference, and the devs have announced that the sequel will miss its original 2016 release for a launch next year.

 

 

Crackdown 3's absence at E3 didn't go unnoticed--millions of fans were asking themselves where the open-world multiplayer exclusive went. Reagent Games today announced Crackdown 3 will hit in 2017 with full Play Anywhere cross-buy support on Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs. The devs explained the delay by saying that they need the extra time to "redefine what it feels like to play games."

 

"Crackdown 3 is a game built for the future with a multiplayer experience that will redefine what it feels like to play games, and as we continue to work on this, it has become clear that our original timeline of delivering multiplayer to fans this summer, while maintaining the size, scope and quality of the game, would be challenging. Our top priority is to give gamers an experience they have never seen before at a scale never thought possible, and sticking to our original timeline would have compromised that goal."

Welcome to the urban jungle. The modern mammal metropolis of 'Zootopia' is a city like no other.

Hideo Kojima's new PS4 game Death Stranding: everything we know so far

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: Jun 14, 2016 3:15 am

E3 2016 - Hideo Kojima took the stage at Sony's E3 presser to unveil his latest game, Death Stranding, and it completely blew me away.

 

 

Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima's new "big and edgy" PS4 exclusive is called Death Stranding (what a name, right?), it stars Norman Reedus (take that, Konami!) and is deliciously weird. In fact, I'd go so far as to say that Death Stranding isn't like anything I've really seen before. It has a truly haunting overtone that seeps into your soul, not like the black oil on Norman's hands once his newborn baby disappears into thin air. And what were those things hanging overhead? Some sort of horrible alien-demons? They looked like monoliths from No Man's Sky...

 

Although the trailer didn't really reveal much about the game, we have a nice breakdown of info in a bullet list below. Kojima is always shrouded in mystery, and I honestly didn't expect his game to make an appearance. Based on his recently revealed studio mascot, Ludens, a lot of gamers thought his PS4 exclusive would be set in a strange sci-fi universe. And maybe it is--we just don't know enough about Death Stranding. But I do know how it made me feel, and it's almost indescribable. It's short, sweet, and just mesmerizing and hypnotic kind of way. Death Sranding looks like a grey, lifeless world full of macabre mystery, and I can't wait to plumb its depths--we can only imagine what it looks like in Kojima's head.

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: Jun 14, 2016 2:09 am

E3 2016 - Sony has announced that Crash Bandicoot is back--well...he's coming to PS4 at least.

 

 

Sony has worked with Activision to bring the original Crash Bandicoot trilogy to PS4: Crash Bandicoot 1, 2, and Warped are all getting high-def remasters on the PlayStation 4 in 2017. Crash will also appear in the new Skylanders Imaginators game with his very own "Crash Edition" starter set. Pre-ordering the set includes an Crash figurine as well as levels from the iconic PlayStation classic.

 

"Next year, we plan to launch a remastered collection of the first three Crash Bandicoot games-Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, and Crash Bandicoot: Warped -for PlayStation 4," Activision said in a press release.

Quantic Dream debuts footage from Detroit, teasing robot drama at E3

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: Jun 14, 2016 1:55 am

E3 2016 - From the makers of Heavy Rain, developer Quantic Dream has just teased a beautiful new trailer to Detroit: Become Human. Detroit is a game similar to Heavy Rain with an emphasis on storyline and gorgeous graphics. Developer Quantic Dream explains Detroit as a "neo-noir thriller set in a close future. Features multiple characters".

 

 

You play as a PL600 robot that is able to tell the truth or lie during a conversation with an NPC, you can obey/ignore them, convince/or shoot someone in a situation, and so much more. You have the technology to recreate crime scenes by using your finger to touch something like boood, and completing scans from the technology inside of your robotic character. There are multiple ways to handle situations, which drives the story in different directions - just like Heavy Rain.

 

It looks insanely beautiful, and will be exclusive to the PlayStation 4. It looks positively amazing, and seems to have a much higher, more stable frame rate compared to the performance which suffered in Heavy Rain on the PS3 at the time.

PlayStation VR launches October 13 for $399, 50 games out this year

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Virtual & Augmented Reality | Posted: Jun 14, 2016 1:49 am

E3 2016 - Sony has utterly dominated its E3 2016 press conference, announcing Resident Evil 7 with full PlayStation VR support, a new God of War, and the release date and pricing on the PlayStation VR.

 

playstation-vr-launches-october-13-399-50-games-year_30

 

Sony will launch the PlayStation VR on October 13 for $399, with 50 games being released before the end of the year. With competition from Oculus and HTC, will Sony be able to do good business with PSVR? I seriously think so, as they have an install base of 40 million PS4 owners, and some truly kick ass gamers being shown off during their E3 2016 press conference.

Sony teases Resident Evil 7 for January 24, 2017 - full PSVR support!

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Virtual & Augmented Reality | Posted: Jun 14, 2016 1:45 am

E3 2016 - One of the scarier games to be shown during the entire E3 2016 conference so far, would have to be freakin' Resident Evil 7 for the PlayStation VR. Sony confirms that RE7 is a "full PlayStation VR experience", and I'm already crapping my pants.

 

 

It looks like a seriously good experience, and with full PSVR integration, it's going to be insanely scary to play the next-gen Resident Evil. Sony teased Resident Evil 7, which will be released on the PS4 and with PSVR support on January 24, 2017.
