Ubisoft announces Far Cry 4 DLC

by: Nathaniel - - 0 Comments

Ring in the new year with Escape from Durgesh Prison - the first DLC for Far Cry 4.

@Ubisoft took to Twitter this afternoon to bring attention to today's announcement.  You can find more at blog.ubi.com.

According to Ubi, Escape from Durgesh Prison will find players escaping from Durgesh prison (amazingly) after being stripped of all their weapons and skills.  The biggest bit of information is that there will be no respawning in Escape from Durgesh Prison.  Death is permanent, although you do get to keep any gear and xp you've accrued.  

It will be playable in singleplayer and co-op, and will run you $9.99 so you won't even need to craft a bigger wallet to buy it.  

If you have the Far Cry 4 Season Pass ($29.99), you can download it for free.  

Escape from Durgesh Prison is out on January 13.

The Evolve round-up

by: Rob - - 0 Comments

2K and Turtle Rock have today announced a number of updates on how their 4v1 monster hunter, Evolve, is coming along.

  • Details have emerged on the third playable monster, the Wraith, "a small, terrifying, stealthy assassin" per the press release.
  • It has been revealed that Evolve will be fully playable offline as either a Hunter or Monster. "Every character, every map, and every mode" they say.  
  • And that the Xbox One will getting an Open Beta January 15-19 to test the campaign, called Evacuation. The previous game mode from the Alpha will  be up as well, and the PC and PS4 will get a limited technical test starting on the 16th and 17th, respectively.  If you were invited to the Big Alpha (or for PC if you have a copy of Left 4 Dead or Bioshock Infinite in your Steam library) you can get in on those technical tests. More details on the Evolve website.

I really wasn't expecting the offline availability but am very pleased by the news. In any multiplayer game knowing the map is just critical, and getting to play offline to really explore the arena, as well as experimenting a bit without letting your team down is a big plus, but it's also nice to know Turtle rock isn't turning their back on all the folks in rural areas and whatnot who can't get reliable service.

Evolve will be available February 10 Xbox One, PS4, and PC. I'll leave you with the two videos released today: the first being a 2 1/2 minute cinematic trailer showcasing the Wraith, the second is 50 minutes of play footage of the character and more. It's about an 8 minute match of Wraith v. Hunters with the rest of the footage being the same battle from each character's perspective. Head to the actual youtube page to check out instructions on how to turn the annotations on and jump through each of the perspectives as you watch, hence the "Interactive" bit.

Telltale’s next project is... Minecraft?!?!

by: Jeremy - - 0 Comments

Nope, go ahead and check your calendar, this isn’t an April Fools’ joke. Telltale and Mojang have announced that they are working together for Telltale’s next episodic adventure: Minecraft- Story Mode. Yep, they are going to add some substance to the blockbuilding phenomenon in the way of an episodic adventure game.

I had heard rumors the past couple of days that the company would be announcing a new project with an unexpected developer partnership, but this is something I never saw coming. The game will be set in the world of Minecraft but is completely separate from the main experience. The goal here, according to Telltale’s Owen Hill, isn’t to shoehorn a narrative into the core Minecraft experience but rather to “explore an alternate interpretation” of the world.

The details are pretty scarce right now, aside from the name of the project and the fact that it will launch on all of the standard Telltale-platforms (pretty much everything). The game will launch sometime in 2915 and more details are expected very soon.

Fifa 15 FUT Team of the Week for Dec. 17th

by: Cody - - 0 Comments

This week's entry in Fifa 15 FUT's TotW is at the opposite end of the power sprectrum from last week's crazy roster.  Leading the way is a CAM Santi Cazorla of Arsenal.  The Spaniard scored twice in a 4-1 win over Newcastle to gain his 85 overall rated TotW entry.  The newly acquired Bayern Munich center back Mehdi Benatia also has an 85 rating for his in form, and if combined with Hummels in form of last week, could be one of the strongest defensive combos in the center thus far.  Rounding out the honorable mention for the week is Sofiane Feghouli of La Liga side Valencia with 82 rated RW card.  Check out the full roster below.

These ain't your daddy's fractals

by: Randy - - 0 Comments

When I think of fractals, I think of my Windows screensaver from, like, 1998. While my brain pretty much parked itself in the late 20th century, fractal art continued to mature.

This video, called Fractalicious, is a four-minute compilation snipped from 20 fractal art pieces. The artist, Julius Horsthuis, is the VFX supervisor at Hectic Electric Amsterdam in the Netherlands. His latest, Foreign Nature, works 360 degrees on an Oculus VR—he's just looking for a way to get it published.

WCW invades WWE 2K15

by: Russell - - 0 Comments

Remember the Invasion angle from 2001 where WCW "invaded" WWE after it was purchased from Vince?  Yeah, didn't turn out as well as it could have.  Something tells me this "invasion" will turn out much better.  2K has announced multiple DLC offerings for WWE 2K15.  First off is the WCW Pack that includes WCW superstars Bam Bam Bigelow, Diamond Dallas Page, Fit Finlay, Lord Steven Regal, and Lex Luger.  The WCW Pack is available for $7.99.

In addition there are also two playable versions of Hulk Hogan for $2.99 as well as two playable versions of Sting for $2.99 as well.  The Hogan offerings were initially a part of the WWE 2K15 HULKAMANIA Edition while the two versions of Sting were initially part of the WWE 2K15 pre-order offer.

Finally, fans who picked up the Season Pass can now download WWE Diva Paige.  Players who pick up the Season Pass will also receive, as they become available, access to the Accelerator and access to all three 2K Showcase stories (One More Match, Hall of Pain, and Path of the Warrior).

Dontnod's next game is called Life is Strange

by: Nathaniel - - 0 Comments

Dontnod is a developer I don't know much about except for the fact that I loved their last game, Remember Me (and if you missed Remember Me, you should check it out).  

I get the feeling that we all might become a little more familiar with them however, because their next game, the just revealed Life is Strange, looks like it might hit all the indie game sweet spots that garner lots of positive attention.  

Set in what looks like a normal high school, Life is Strange is an episodic adventure title that lets you manipulate time so you can see how various events play out under different circumstances.  

The first episode (out of five) will be out on January 30, and you can watch the reveal trailer right now:

The PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 can now use Plex

by: John - - 0 Comments

Plex is one of the best ways to view your media. It does a great job at providing you with a view of all your videos and movies and the Plex server does a great job at transcoding various file types to something that your client and view.

Xbox One was the first next-gen console to get a Plex client, but we can now throw in the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 3 as well. 

The app looks similar to the Xbox One and Vizio and will be rolling out through various countries. Initially, only Plex Pass members can use the app, but that restriction should be lifted sometime down the line.

Plex is pretty awesome and I'm glad to see it appearing on more platforms, especially the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.
