From the screenshots we can see quite a lot of suit customizations as well as some large enemies that players will have to battle. Players will be able to combine heads, legs, other body parts and backpacks together to create their very own Gunpla. This customization will go in-depth as players will have the option of controlling body part positioning, angle and size.

 

Enemies wise, players that jump into New Gundam Breaker will be facing enemies that are much larger than them. Take the Hashmal battle for example, the screenshot located below sums the challenge up pretty well.

Chief Creative director, Tameem Antoniades has told PCGamer that they never expected the title to do so well on PC considering it was "primarily a PlayStation 4 title."Here is what Antoniades had to say: "We did see this as primarily a PlayStation 4 title, and we thought that platform would be the bulk of our sales, and in fact it was pretty evenly split. So going forward, we will make sure that we get our interface and everything right for the PC audience as well."

 

Ninja Theory, the developers Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice were also surprised at the amount of players that choose to play the title with a keyboard and mouse instead of a controller. "We were so surprised that so many people played the game with mouse and keyboard, and we dropped the ball a little bit at the start. We patched it afterwards, but we dropped the ball with our mouse and keyboard support."

On the PlayStation blog, a post by James Stevenson, the Community Director for Insomniac Games explained that when the developer announced the release date for the upcoming title, the pre-order bonus only contained one suit - Spider-Punk. Now, fans will have the luxury of seeing one more suit, meet the Iron Spider suit.

 

Stevenson details: "Players who pre-order Marvel's Spider-Man will get an early unlock of the Iron Spider suit inspired by Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War. This was a big collaboration between Sony Interactive Entertainment, Insomniac, Marvel Games, and Marvel Studios. And while you may have glimpsed the pre-order video before, you haven't seen this new video we made to show it off - some of you will even be lucky enough to see this on the big screen before the movie when the film hits theaters later this week."

New Dragon Age could be mainline sequel

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: 20 hours, 8 mins ago

BioWare's next Dragon Age game is in the works, but with its new juggernaut release Anthem on the horizon, the game could take some time before it releases...but it also could be a big AAA mainline game.

We've known for a while that BioWare is making a new Dragon Age game, and that Sunless Sea's Alexis Kennedy is helping the devs write a portion of the game. All of the info we know so far strongly hints the game will be a big-budget affair versus a smaller-scale spin-off (Mass Effect: Andromeda's failures notwithstanding). Now BioWare's Mark Darrah might've just hinted the game is a direct sequel.

 

In a long Twitter thread chronicling Darrah's development career, the BioWare dev outlined everything that led up to his current position as Executive Producer on Anthem, the studio's massively ambitious new online-based action-RPG. At the very end he directly refers to the next Dragon Age game as "DA4", and says that he's the exec producer on that project too.

Halo devs: PC community is very important to us

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: 21 hours, 8 mins ago

343 Industries could be working on bringing authentic Halo multiplayer to PC in some form--could it be Halo: Master Chief Collection or maybe an official worldwide rollout of Halo Online?

 

halo-devs-pc-community-very-important_6634

 

In its official statement surrounding the unauthorized Eldewrito Halo Online PC mod 343i both confirmed the mod itself will be put on hiatus while saying something else quite interesting: the team is excited about bringing an "official classic Halo experience" to PC at some point. In fact the Halo devs are so impressed with Eldewrito's most recently 0.6 update that they want to team up with the team in a bid to broaden community-driven tools and creations across the Halo fanbase.

 

Here's 343i's full statement on the matter: "One thing remains clear - the community really wants more Halo on PC. As we look ahead, we're very excited about the prospects of an official classic Halo experience making its way to PC and we hope to be able to partner with the ElDewrito team and broader mod and content creation community to help inform the types of experiences and features our fans desire. While we have nothing to announce today, please know that the PC community is very important to us and top of mind as we work towards the future," the developers said in the post.

Modded Halo Online PC project under fire by Microsoft

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: 21 hours, 54 mins ago

Halo Online, which brought an authentic Halo 3 multiplayer experience to PC, has been resurrected and revamped thanks to the most recent Eldewrito 0.6 update...but Microsoft and 343i are taking measures to get it yanked offline.

In a blog post 343 Industries says it has a "non-optional" obligation to protect its intellectual property, and that the Eldewrito project directly violates its IP rights because it was built on company-owned assets and content that weren't technically released. Unlike Installation 01, which is built on its own game engine and fits in line with Microsoft's rules, Eldewrito is built on the Halo Online game that was built by 343i and Saber Interactive and only available in Russia.

 

"While we are humbled and inspired to see the amount of passion poured into this project, the fact remains that it's built upon Microsoft-owned assets that were never lawfully released or authorized for this purpose. As this project reverberated across the community, our team took a step back to assess the materials and explore possible avenues, while Microsoft, like any company, has a responsibility to protect its IP, code and trademarks. It's not optional in other words."
