Street Fighter 5 announced for PS4 and PC, with cross-platform play

A surprising announcement from Sony and Capcom during the PlayStation Experience event today, with Street Fighter 5 being announced for both the PlayStation 4 and PC exclusively.

 

 

On top of that, Sony's Adam Boyes and Capcom's Yoshinori Ono announced that there will be cross-platform play featured between the PS4 and PC, which is something that will continue having Sony edging out Microsoft in the console war. Boyes said that the two companies have been working together on Street Fighter 5, and that the "PS4 will be the only console this game ever appears on".

King's Quest reboot footage unveiled, goes for a new 3D art style look

During The Game Awards in Las Vegas last night, we were greeted to the trailer to the new King's Quest. In this trailer, we find out that there is a new 3D art style, which I personally don't know that I liked, yet.

 

 

The Odd Gentlemen, an indie studio, is working on the game, which will be released in fall 2015. The original creators of the original game, Ken and Roberta Williams have been involved with the game, which should have King's Quest fans really excited.

The Order: 1886 receives more gorgeous trailer footage

The Game Awards has provided us with a wealth of game-related posts today, where we continue on with the world premiere trailer to The Order: 1886. The Order: 1886 is a PlayStation 4 exclusive title, which takes place in a Victorian London-type world, and is a cover-based shooter.

 

 

As you can make out from the trailer above, there's barely any gameplay footage here, which is disappointing. The trailer itself happens during "Chapter 5: Agamemnon Rising" which sees the characters boarding an airship of some description, taking control of it. Ready at Dawn is behind The Order: 1886, which arrives on the PS4 sometime next year, oh and by the way, at 30FPS.

CD Projekt Red lets you play as multiple characters in The Witcher 3

The Witcher 3 is getting closer and closer to release, but we've just received a tsunami full of game announcements, reveals, gameplay footage and much more. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt doesn't escape this, with its new "Elder Blood" trailer, below.

 

 

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will let you play more than one character, with Geralt still being your number one choice. The character wasn't fully announced, but it was definitely teased in the video. February 2015 definitely can't come soon enough.

Sony shows off Uncharted 4 gameplay footage on the PS4 at 1080p 60FPS

Sony has shown off the first gameplay footage to Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, which is an exclusive to the PlayStation 4, at its own PlayStation Experience event. The footage can be viewed in the video below.

 

 

As you can see, or might have noticed, it is running at Full HD (1920x1080, or 1080p) at a fluid 60FPS. There's an increase in visual effects and detail, such as Nathan Drake rustling up the foliage as he walks past it, or through it, and dust being flicked up when bullets start smashing into rocks and other parts of the environment.

 

Naughty Dog did promise us 1080p at 60FPS a little while ago, so it's good to see them mostly hitting the target here with Uncharted 4 on the PS4. For now, enjoy that nice, long 15-minute video of Uncharted 4 on the PlayStation 4.

The Legend of Zelda for the Wii U shown off by Nintendo

Nintendo hasn't been having the best time with its Wii U console, but there was a decent spike in sales when they released Mario Kart 8. Well, I think we're going to see another system seller in The Legend of Zelda for the Wii U, something the company showed off during The Game Awards in Las Vegas last night.

 

 

As you can see from the world premiere footage, it looks quite incredible. The Legend for Zelda on the Wii U has access to much more horsepower, more power that was available for any previous Zelda title, and it pays off - it looks incredible. The scale of the game is absolutely incredible, and the Wii U controller is used to great effect thanks to its touchscreen.

 

Apples grow on trees, with Nintendo teasing you can pick them off the trees, and eat them. Some will notice that the game is running very fluidly, hitting 60FPS. Nintendo has promised The Legend of Zelda for Wii U, stating it is arriving next year. They also teased that the new Star Fox is coming to the Wii U before Zelda arrives in 2015. I kinda want that game, well, now. Please, Nintendo?

Red Dead Redemption 2 rumored to feature co-op play, with 2015 release

According to "an insider" at Rockstar Games, there is a sequel in production to Red Dead Redemption 2. What's so special about RDR 2? According to the rumor, it will have a heavy emphasis on cooperative play, which would be a very, very big change.

 

TweakTown image news/4/1/41704_04_red_dead_redemption_2_rumored_to_feature_co_op_play_with_2015_release.jpg

 

The insider took to the NeoGAF forums, where they said: "So I spoke to an insider at Rockstar who confirmed that Rockstar is indeed developing a sequel to Red Dead Redemption for PS4/Xbox One. Don't have a lot of concrete details but expect co-op to be integrated and focused on".

 

We shouldn't be surprised that it is riding onto the Xbox One and PS4, but we should be surprised at the lack of a PC version. Considering the total craziness surrounding the PC version of Grand Theft Auto V, you'd think Rockstar would've learned by now, that the PC audience is huge. Hopefully this changes closer to Red Dead Redemption 2's announcement, and release.

Metal Gear Online debuts at The Game Awards, out in 2015 with MGS V

We knew it was coming, but today it's here: Metal Gear Online has been announced. Metal Gear Online is the online side of the upcoming Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, and was unveiled today at The Game Awards.

 

 

Metal Gear Online is being developed by Kojima Production's new LA-based studio, with an MGS spin on the team deathmatch goodness, kind of. Within the team-based competitive shooter, players can tag enemy locations with their binoculars, teleport, leave toy dogs to distract their enemies, and shoot down fulton parachutes that could steal, or kidnap their friends. There's also an AT-ST style bipedal walking tank, but I'll let you check out the trailer for that one.

Techland recommends 16GB of RAM for Dying Light

Update: Techland has reportedly updated the PC system requirements for Dying Light, which are much more tame than we reported. Instead of 8GB of RAM being required, and 16GB of RAM recommended, it is 4GB required and 8GB recommended. The GPU side of things is much better - with the required GeForce GTX 560 or Radeon HD 6870 versus the GTX 670 and Radeon HD 7870. The recommended GPU stays the same, with a GTX 780 or R9 290 recommended for Dying Light.

Techland has revealed the PC requirements for its upcoming zombie shooter, Dying Light. Dying Light will have PC gamers needing, at a minimum, an Intel Core i5-2500 at 3.3GHz, or an AMD FX-8320 at 3.5GHz. Not only that, but you'll need 8GB of RAM, 40GB of free HDD space, and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 or AMD Radeon HD 7870.

 

TweakTown image news/4/1/41702_02_dying_light_requires_8gb_ram_40gb_hdd_and_a_geforce_gtx_670_minimum.jpg

 

If you want to run the game with Dying Light's recommended PC specifications, you'll need a Core i5-4670K at 3.4GHz, FX-8350 at 4GHz. Something that is surprising, is that Techland is recommending you have 16GB of RAM which isn't super crazy these days, but it's still a damn steep requirement for something that doesn't feature the most mind-blowing graphics. You'll still need 40GB of HDD space, with the GPU requirements scaling up to a GeForce GTX 780 or Radeon R9 290.

 

A 64-bit version of Windows is required as a minimum, with Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 all being supported.
