The biggest week in gaming has begun with a new trailer of the MMO H1Z1, ready to freak you out with zombies and oddities galore. This game is set to be a massive online multiplayer game where you’re not only aiming to fire upon other players, but zombie forms as well. Here you’ll find the first glimpse of good and evil.
Rabbids Invasion is the name of the game, and the name of the genre is Interactive TV Show. What you’ll be doing in Rabbids Invasion is taking part in 20 episodes of a TV show, becoming "both an actor and a spectator." This will be the first in a series of interactive TV show releases from Ubisoft should the first prove to be a success.
This morning Microsoft has released two drivers for their Xbox One controller for PC. This means that if you have an Xbox One wireless controller - the only standard controller for the Xbox One at this time - you can now work with your PC as well.
So you’d like to play your Xbox 360 games on your Xbox One, would you? You’d like to be able to ditch the older Box - or multiple Xbox units - and use just one machine, would you? As it turns out, the team behind major software builds for the Xbox One at Microsoft are considering backwards compatibility as a real possibility for a future update.
The game Battlefield Hardline has been made official by EA Games, and details have spilled which essentially detail the entire game, top to bottom. A gameplay demo session earlier this month with EA had players suggesting that there’d be a big "S.W.A.T." element to be dealt with. From what we’re seeing in a leaked gameplay video today, it doesn’t stop there - Battlefield Hardline is all about tossing you in on a war on crime.
Watch Dogs will make you fear for the Smart Chicago of tomorrow, but it won’t change the way you play video games today. Watch Dogs does a lot right in its packed set of features and oddities - including a new set of ways to roll with a multiplayer experience. It also forgets to carve new paths in many places other than online.
The following spoiler-filled video of Watch Dogs has been leaked this morning, likely by an intrepid reviewer aiming to get themselves kicked out of the gaming review circuit as fast as possible. What you’re going to see is the opening sequence as well as a few minutes of gameplay. This game is being played on an Xbox 360 and is said to be running at 720p at 30fps.
The Avengers have arrived in the Disney Infinity universe, bringing with them a word on how an open-sandbox model will work with their mighty hand upon the trigger. Disney Infinity is a game which, like Skylanders, uses physical toys to activate virtual-reality characters in the game. This Avengers Playset expansion heralds the second coming of the title - a whole new world, as it were.
It’s all over. Microsoft’s Kinect, which has improved greatly since its launch on the Xbox 360, is officially on a death march that won’t slow down.
Microsoft announced recently that in order to bring its console price down, it will soon start selling the Xbox One without a Kinect. The new price tag for the bundle -- $399 – will certainly attract those who have been turned off by the $499 price, but is it really in the best interests of Microsoft?
It’s become quite obvious that Ubisoft is not planning on releasing sequels to their games any time soon with the announcement of Far Cry 4. Understanding that Watch Dogs will have a sequel if it does well enough and finding that Assassin’s Creed has its own floor dedicated to only itself in Montreal, the franchise business is in full swing. Now we’re seeing the fourth entry into the main Far Cry series environment.
