According to Chapman, once players acquire the rank of 'Pirate Legend' it will unlock an area of the game named Pirate Cove which will allow for players to purchase legendary voyages. These legendary voyages can be compared to raids according to Chapman, also Pirate Cove would allow for players to purchase a larger variety of costumes.

 

In the interview Rare's development team was also present which allowed for an explanation into what Skeleton Forts will be in the full game. According to the team Skeleton Forts will be quite a difficult fight for players but will be rewarding, so rewarding that it apparently all won't fit in the one ship.

The remastered trilogy will include a remaster of Spyro the Dragon, Ripto's Rage! and Year of the Dragon and is also to said to be coming to PS4 with PS4 Pro support aswell.

As the launch of God of War is right around the corner Sony Interactive Entertainment released access to this URL, the link will take you directly to the Facebook mini-game which will require you to log in.

 

Going through the length of the mini-game will reward players with eight pieces of 7200x7200 resolution artwork images which features Kratos and his son Atreus. The art-style almost feels Nordic, the contrast of colour and sketchy look makes the image appear as if it was created long ago. Some images depict Kratos and Atreus surrounded by Draugr and a Revenant, this 'sketchy' art-style is very apparent here.

According to the image found on GameSpot and looking at the 'modern GPU' category we can see that players will be required to have at least an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 or a AMD Radeon RX 470 to reach a recommended 60FPS at 1080p.

 

I cannot wait to see what this game will be looking like in 4K, even though players will have to cranking a GTX 1080 Ti or a AMD Radeon RX Vega 64, I'd assume it would be worth it. For players that don't have that much of a beefy rig, the minimum requirement bracket might be what you want to be looking at, 30FPS at 720p with a GTX 1030 or a AMD Radeon R7 450.

Dynasty Warriors 9 launched today, followed by a new trailer

By: Jak Connor | More News: Gaming | Posted: 4 days ago

Back in early January I reported on the Dynasty Warriors 9 official gameplay trailers, as well as the official open world world trailer. Now that the game is released Koei Tecmo has celebrated with another trailer.

 

 

Dynasty Warriors is one of the longest running series of games to date, originating back on the first PlayStation, Koei Tecmo has really come a long way with what they have created here.

 

Adopting open world gameplay I saw was only inevitable for the game to survive, as even some of the early games felt that they deserved larger maps and more options for exploration.

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Virtual & Augmented Reality | Posted: 4 days, 1 hour ago

Magic Leap is going on a semi-marketing campaign (but probably not) on its upcoming Magic Leap One headsets, with the elusive startup teasing multiple editions of their AR glasses for different levels of consumers and professionals.

 

 

According to Magic Leap boss Rony Abovitz, the cheapest Magic Leap headset will have a starting price of a "higher-end mobile phone to higher-end tablet". He continued, saying "I think we're trying to establish certain tiers - we're not going to be a single-product company over time".

 

Abovitz said that the Magic Leap One "creators edition" headset will be coming out this year, will be somewhere in the middle of Magic Leap's price range. Abovitz continued "We will have a product line in that price point probably for the company's history, and we'll probably have some above and we'll have some below. We'll have even higher-end [versions] for hyper-pro, and then we'll have wide mass-market" products".

The experience sounds very much like a VR-type of experience, with Magic Leap One owners getting to see and feel how it would be with courtside seats at an NBA game. NBA commissioner Adam Silver explained: "Before we got involved with Magic Leap the goal was to replicate the courtside experience". Magic Leap CEO Rony Abovitz teased: "It takes everything you love about normal television and amplifies it".

 

Abovitz continued, where he said "Imagine being able to conjure up, four, six or eight screens. You're seeing all of that in stats and data. Let's say this amazing moment and there's a twirl dunk that smashes the backboard and all of a sudden that shows up". Now how the hell could you say no to that?!
