Several pieces of alleged God of War 4 concept art and design notes have leaked online. At the moment, nothing is confirmed or certain, so take this news with so many pinches of salt that you turn into a natural snail repellent. [HA! – Ed.]
Timed exclusive (one of the lamest marketing things the gaming industry does) Rise of the Tomb Raider hit Xbox One recently, and was met with an extremely positive critical reception. Tarryn reviewed it (because she’s, like, the only one of us who owns an Xbox One) and enjoyed it; you can read about that here.
Rise of the Tomb Raider was announced as an “Xbox exclusive” at Gamescom in 2014. The announcement was met with a lot of criticism, and it was later revealed that actually by “Xbox exclusive” Microsoft really meant “timed exclusive”. The game was scheduled to hit PC in “early 2016” and the PlayStation 4 a year later.
Amazon France seems to have jumped the gun insofar as a concrete release date goes for the PC version of the game. According to their per-order listing, Rise of the Tomb Raider will hit PCs on 29 January 2016. The online retailer has since updated their listing, removing the date and replacing it with “Bientôt disponible”, or “coming soon” in English.
There’s a new Far Cry game coming (surprise!), but official information is scarce. The only official anything is a live stream that’s been overlaid on the Ubisoft homepage. That live stream is of a bunch of prehistoric rock paintings. There are cavemen, sabre-tooth tigers, and mammoths. Also hunting. This is the new Far Cry, which is subtitled Primal.
According to Kotaku sources, and a leak by IGN Turkey (since removed), Far Cry Primal is the next game, but whether or not it’s a Far Cry 5 kind of next title, or something more akin to Far Cry 3’s Blood Dragon spin off, is yet to be seen. It’s likely Far Cry 4’s spin-off as a number of Ice Age assets are in that game already: snow, tigers… mountains. That’s our guess anyway.
We’ll update as soon as something official is announced. In the meantime you can stare at a rock painting live stream over here.
Well now in all honesty, I’m wondering why this didn’t happen sooner. A French retailer called CeDe has listedUncharted: The Remastered Trilogy for the PlayStation 4. There’s even a tentative release date of 30 September this year.
This could be a massive hoax. This could be totally legit. There’s no way of telling at the moment. That being said, the timing is pretty good: Uncharted 4 just got delayed to 2016, which gives Sony and Naughty Dog more time to bring new PlayStation owners up to speed via a remastered trilogy of the PlayStation 3 games. The more new fans they generate now, the better Uncharted 4 is going to do.
A remastered and bundled Uncharted collection makes sense, and as we’ve seen in the past with The Last of Us, remastered games for the PlayStation 4 definitely have their place. For now, however, file this under “R” for “Really, Really, Big Rumour.”
According to sources close to Japanese retailer Hermitage Akibara, retailers and distributors across the world will be gearing up for a 10 May 2014 launch for the Haswell refresh processors and LGA1150 motherboards packing the 9-series chipset. Intel has not officially announced any launch dates for their new family of processors, however they are planning to launch them at a later date this year, with the X99 socket LGA2011-3 platform launching in 2H 2014, packing DDR4 support for the first time for consumer applications. The 9-series chipsets will add support for M.2 solid state drives, Intel Boot Guard for UEFI and full SATA 6GB/s support on most motherboards.
