Watch Dog 2 Logo with Golden Gate Bridge in Background

No GravatarUbisoft has released the latest Watch Dog 2 trailer, revealing the a new mission for players who pre-order the game will receive an extra mission.

The mission titled Zodiac Killer, is based on a real life serial killer, that roamed and scared the San Francisco Bay Area in the 1960’s. The killer claimed to have taken as many as 37 lives, though police have only officially linked him to seven victims. After he commited the murders, he would send the media and police encrypted messages, taunting them by revealing information about the crimes that only the killer would know, or about future possible victims. Fifty years later, and the Zodiac Killer has yet to be identified.

In the pre-order mission, “an unwanted ghost of San Francisco’s past has resurfaced after fifty years. A killer is staging the bodies of his victims all over Oakland like the infamous Zodiac Killer of the Sixties, and he’s taunting the police and news outlets with coded messages. Will you succeed in decrypting the messages and hunting down the copycat?”


Players will take on the role of Marcus Holloway, a young hacker living in the San Francisco Bay Area who has teamed up with Dedsec, a notorious group of hackers.

They have exposed the dangers of ctOS 2.0, an advanced operating system networking city infrastructure that is in the hands of a corrupt corporations and being used to manipulate the lives of the citizens.

Between Marcus Holloway and the Dedsec, it is the player’s responsibility to take down the ctOS 2.0 and protect the lives of the people of the Bay Area.

Watch Dogs 2, developed by Ubisoft Montreal will be released for the Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC on November 15.

No GravatarTwo days of Rockstar Games teasing with just an image posted each day, fans knew they had something to do with the Red Dead franchise, the publisher finally has officially announced Red Dead Redemption 2.

The first image was the company’s logo in front of a red background, and the second image had silhouettes of seven cowboys holding rifles and pistols off in the distance in front of a setting sun. These images has cause social media and forums to buzz with anticipation that an announcement was incoming soon. There were even spoofs from other video game franchises posted yesterday, showing the anticipation that the images were causing.


Now that we know that the game is in production, what else did the company tell us about Red Dead Redemption 2:

“An epic tale of life in America’s unforgiving heartland, the game’s vast and atmospheric world will also provide the foundation for a brand new online multiplayer experience.”

The game is scheduled to be released in the fall of 2017 on the Playstation 4 and Xbox One. We will get our first look on this coming Thursday, October 20 at 11am EST as they release the Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer on Rockstar Games Youtube and Twitch pages.

No GravatarBandai Namco has revealed the debut trailer for Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Mega Battle and it is somewhat different than what people were expecting.  The game is a retro style 2D beat em up done in a rather interesting art style, but looks like it has potential to be good.

Check out the trailer below



No GravatarbgeAfter all the teasing and hinting, Ubisoft has confirmed that a new BG&E game is in development

If you’ve been waiting for news about BG&E… well, here you go! We are delighted to confirm that Michel Ancel is currently working with the Ubisoft Montpellier Studio on a new Beyond Good & Evil game.


No platforms are listed yet and no doubt we will have to wait a while to see the game, but it is nice to know the game is coming and what team is developing it.

Koji Igarashi recently had an interview with IGN wherein he discussed among other things, that the Wii U version of the game may not happen. The game is coming out in 2018 and the Wii U will be pretty much done by 2017, and given that the Wii U version is being done externally as well due to the engine not being fully compatible, it might not be worth it to continue. That said, he may have implied the game’s port for Nintendo might be moved from the Wii U to the upcoming NX.

“Yeah, it’s a very complicated problem. The reality is this: As timelines move on, certain pieces of hardware become irrelevant. Sometimes new pieces of hardware come out that make you think about what is the right strategy. And as a creator, usually you want to make stuff for the new hardware. That’s the reality.”

“However, this was a game that was backed by people, and we made promises to listen to them. They’re the people that gave us life so to speak. Any sort of change that we do or are considering that goes outside the scope of the promises we’ve made must be done with lots of explanation, must be done with lots of care, and must be done with lots of back and forth with them to see what options we have. We must listen to them at the end of the day, and we have made promises.”

“Unfortunately, some of those don’t make as much sense anymore as they did before, and that’s also reality. So you’re in a very difficult position, and at the end of the day, if you’re going to go in one certain direction, you want to make sure that you have support from them.”

“But so far we’ve, I think, been incredibly transparent through all the things that have happened with our backers, and they have been very supportive. So I’m hoping that if there is going to be a difficult decision some day, and we don’t know, that we’re able to have that conversation. If they say they don’t get it, well that’s where we’re at. And if they say they do get it, well then, we’ll be able to do things that are maybe more interesting. We’ll see.


This wouldn’t be a bad thing necessarily as most Nintendo gamers will have moved on to the NX and the NX will most likely be able to natively run unreal engine 4, thereby making an NX port inherently superior to a Wii U port. I backed the game on kickstarter and would love an NX version.

Bethesda sent out the following


One Tamriel, a free update for all players, delivers the freedom gamers expect from all great Elder Scrolls games – more self-determination and playing options for veteran players and new players alike. With a truly open world and a level-scaled environment, adventurers can go anywhere, with anyone, at any time from the moment they exit the tutorial.


One Tamriel also removes Alliance restrictions outside of PvP, allowing players to group with any player in the world, no matter their allegiance. This change makes it much easier for players to find pick-up groups for questing, dungeons, and trials, and expands the opportunity for guilds to assemble more diverse dungeon and trial groups.


Choose to discover the villages and cities of Tamriel at your own pace, and in whatever order you please, from the Gold Coast to Eastmarch and from Rivenspire to Shadowfen. If you’re a veteran player, you can now invite your friends to join you as a beginner and be equally challenged regardless of where you quest.


Additional major improvements and updates to the game include:

  • Dueling: Players can now battle each other anywhere outside Cyrodiil to test their skills and builds and claim bragging rights as the toughest adventurer
  • Zone Overhaul: All zones have been redesigned for a mix of solo and group play with improved bosses and standardized difficulty
  • Dungeons: All dungeons can be played in normal and veteran mode, where story is separated from difficulty and players are battle-leveled to allow players of different levels to play together, and receive level-appropriate loot
  • Craglorn: The massive Craglorn zone has been redesigned to make it solo-friendly but still the go-to location for group content
  • Loot: Loot in zones has now been standardized like dungeon loot, making it possible to acquire specific sets in specific zones at whatever level you are when completing quests


New players can get the recently released The Elder Scrolls Online: Gold Edition, which includes the main game as well as all four major DLC Game Packs — Imperial City, Orsinium, Thieves Guild, and Dark Brotherhood – for only $59.99 by visiting



To celebrate the newfound freedom of One Tamriel, Bethesda Softworks has launched the One Tamriel Trip of a Lifetime giveaway.

Fallout 4 and Skyrim Special Edition will be getting 4K Support on PS4 Pro and Partial Mod support. You will not be able to use external assets, which does limit what can be done significantly. There is still a lot that can be done however, and this is far better than having no mods at all. Perhaps in the future, full mod support will be enabled.

We’re excited to announce that mod support is coming to PlayStation 4 for both Skyrim Special Edition and Fallout 4. Additionally, we’ll also be supporting the new PlayStation 4 Pro with both titles.

Skyrim will have these features when it launches on October 28. The new power of the PlayStation 4 Pro has allowed us to make Skyrim render in native 4k, and it looks better than ever. Here are some screens to show you just how great it looks.

Mod support will come to Skyrim first. We and Sony have worked hard to make this possible. Mods on PlayStation 4 will allow you to modify and create your own content by using our Creation Kit available here. You will not be able to upload external assets with your PlayStation 4 mods, but you will be able to use any assets that come with the game, as most mods do. By creating a account, you’ll be able to browse and try mods right from within the game. We are excited finally to get modding to our PlayStation fans who have supported us for so long. Modding has been an important part of our games for over 10 years, and we hope to do even more in the coming year for all our players, regardless of platform.

After the work is complete on Skyrim, we’ll be updating Fallout 4 for both mods and PS4 Pro. We expect Fallout 4 to take advantage of the PS4 Pro in 4k along with enhanced lighting and graphics features.

Thanks again for all your support. We can’t wait to hear about your new adventures.

It seems another new multiplayer focused IP has failed to attract an audience and will be going down the Free-To-Play route soon. Kotaku has reported that Battleborn, the FPS/MOBA hybrid from Gearbox will be shifting to this model soon, following in the path of 2K Games and Turtle Rock Studio’s Evolve.

The source, speaking under condition of anonymity, said that developer Gearbox had wanted to make Battleborn free-to-play from the get-go, but publisher 2K preferred to sell it as a standard $60 retail product. However, the game flopped, in part thanks to a glut of hero shooters like Blizzard’s Overwatch, which launched in the same month as Battleborn. Although the two games are somewhat different—and Fahey tells us Battleborn is pretty good—Overwatch has dominated the market.

Battleborn’s price has been steadily decreasing since it came out in May, and the game is now selling for just $20 at Amazon and some other retailers. The developers have regularly held events and released new content for the game, including free heroes and PVP maps. Gearbox also plans to release story missions and more heroes later this year. The studio will likely offer some sort of reward for current players once Battleborn goes free, although those plans have not yet been finalized, according to the source.
