One of the many welcoming trends of modern gaming (in my opinion, at least) is the inclusion of the open beta. Interested in an upcoming title? What better way to determine whether you should part from your hard earned cash than to test drive a portion of the game for free? It certainly beats buying a game based on a few random screenshots plastered on the back of the box.
The latest trailer for the upcoming Xbox One MMO-ish game, Sea of Thieves, explains how many elements were designed around cooperative play. There are three main instances in which players have to work together to succeed.
LittleBigPlanet 3 continues its fight for your co-op gaming attention with a brand new series of community challenges! To make things even more interesting, a couple of costume packs are also on their way, including a ghost outfit, Soulcalibur costumes, and upcoming outfits from that Dark Souls III game all the kids are talking about.
The 2014 release of Monster Hunter Freedom Unite for iOS did the nigh impossible when it adapted precision-based gameplay for greasy touch screens. It wasn't perfect, but hey, it was fantastic. The release of iOS 9 about a year later made Freedom Unite unplayable, so Capcom pulled it from the store. Sad face. It took some time, but the game has finally returned, just in time to compete with Monster Hunter Generations!
Some sad news for everyone in Japan who's still playing and enjoying LittleBigPlanet content. A post on the Japanese PlayStation blog (and then translated by NeoGAF) stated that the servers for the original title, its two sequels, the karting game, and portable/Vita version will all be shutdown on July 31st.
The revolution begins next Tuesday and in anticipation of that historical moment, a new story trailer for Homefront: The Revolution has been released. The almost three-minute video introduces you to some of the major players that are working with you to take down the KPA in Philadelphia.
The latest Homefront: The Revolution wants to let you know that your actions will have beneficial consequences. When you take the fight to the KPA and capture that one strategic area, it won't just stay the same. Oh no. Members of the resistance are all too eager to get in there and practice their street art skills.
The latest trailer for Homefront: The Revolution was released and it highlights some of the new features for the title. Chief among these are the ability to modify your weapon on the fly and the "Guerilla Toolkit," which is their term for things like IEDs, a hacking tool, and an explosive R/C car.
Consider the following entry in the ongoing war of collector's editions vs your wallet: Homefront: The Revolution - Goliath Edition. Not only do you get the usual goodies of an art book and DLC expansion pass, they've also kicked in an R/C "Goliath" Drone vehicle with which you can terrorize your household pets.
You want moar costumez? We got your costumes right here! Sorry, got a little angry there. It's ok, though, because now I'm feeling happy. Hey, that's just like the emotions from that new movie Inside Out! Nice coincidence, seeing as how Joy, Sadness, Fear, Anger, and Disgust costumes are now available for LittleBigPlanet 3!
This past weekend publisher Deep Silver and developer Dambuster Studios kicked off a limited closed beta for Homefront: The Revolution on Xbox One. The beta was the first step to testing the game's multiplayer infrastructure and gather some feedback. We were lucky enough to get our hands on, and played through the three available missions; delving into the unlocks and nuances this early look had to offer.
