First seen in last year’s Playstation Experience, the new chapter of Uncharted is set for release this August. Focusing on a duo of female characters- Uncharted 2’s Chloe Frazer and Nadine from Uncharted 4- the new side story involves them on the search for the Tusk of Ganesh.
Here’s a look at a cinematic scene between the two ladies, uncovering some clues to find the fabled relic. As always, Naughty Dog’s cinematic chops and gorgeous in-game graphics remains second to none despite this being helmed by the new B-team of the studio.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is more of a stand-alone expansion. It will be “a lengthier experience than The [...]
Do you want more Yakuza this year? If the prequel game Yakuza 0, released in English last January, was not enough then here’s another one. Yakuza Kiwami, the HD remake of the first Yakuza game that started it all, will see an English release on August 29.
Kiwami chronicles the story of Kazuma Kiryu, a normal yakuza member who got himself entangled in various conspiracies- in this case, a murder- within the underground world. And he overcomes most of it with some good ol’ fashion brawling. The game tip-toes between super serious crime drama and super goofy comedy antics while providing hours and hours of playtime with its RPG-like structure. Plus, the [...]
Warriors! This is your last call to try out For Honor before it’s official release on February 14. Pre-loading is now available on PS4, Xbox One and PC. It’s around 18GB of size so you might want to download it ahead of time. The beta starts February 9.
You can find the PC download either in the uPlay client or on Steam here. PS4 players can use the link here for the beta download.
To commemorate the beta, here’s one more trailer for the third-person brawler/fighting game, done in 360 degrees. A neat use of the tech, but it’s all in CGI. Check it out here:
Thankfully, the in-game visuals look phenomenal. You can read up on what we think [...]
Senpai! Looks like our early reports were accurate, Let It Die is now available not just in Japan, but all of Asia. You can now download the game at this link here. It’s a whopping 55GB download, but the initial 18GB should let you play the first three floors.
Let It Die is a free-to-play Souls-like action game exclusive for the PS4. Interestingly it is mostly single-player in nature and has a different way of monetising the game. We will get into how the monetisation works in a later article.
Also, remember to change your allegiance once you opened up the Tokyo Death Metro, an MGSV-like mode where you get to raid other player’s base and defend your own. [...]
Missed the closed beta? Don’t worry warriors, as everyone can join in the fight as For Honor will have an open beta on February 9 until February 12 with a new game mode: 4v4 Elimination (no respawns). That’s pretty close to the launch date which is on February 14, so the “open beta” is more likely a demo of the launch game that will be released in a matter of days afterwards. So it’s probably just an open beta in name only (hence the quote marks). We have seen this happened before with Ubisoft’s other game, Rainbow Six: Siege.
Speaking of Rainbow Six: Siege, it looks like For Honor will follow the business model of its slowly-but-surely [...]
Hitman is now on disc! If you’ve been waiting for the full release of the episodic murder sandbox game, this is the time to do it. It’s also now out digitally on Asia’s PSN for RM190. A pretty decent price considering PS4 fans here have to wait the whole season as it was not available until recently.
However, there will be a day one update of sorts. Developers Io Interactive has announced an update that should have arrived by now at the time of writing. The roughly 2GB patch has bug fixes, quality of life changes (like a tweak of a sound effect and more hints of illegal items and activities), the Professional difficulty, as well as another bonus episode, [...]
