Victor Vran Fractures Some Worlds in Upcoming Expansion

about X hours ago from

Loved Victor Vran but wanted more, more, more? Never fear, Fractured Worlds is almost here! The recently announced expansion to the game is set to launch on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 by the end of the year, and it'll keep you crafting and exploring and dying for hours on end.Fractured Worlds is part of the Overkill Edition package and will introduce a new story arc for the action RPG. Players dive into a new plane of existence formed from the collision of multiple broken worlds. You know, ordinary stuff. Four new dungeons await Victor, all of which shift layouts on a daily basis. There's also The Fracture to explore, an endless dungeon with new challenges at each tier. Fractured Worlds also increases the level cap to 60, adds an additional Destiny Card slot, brings in new crafting recipes, and introduces Talismans, a new kind of item that changes both visual appearance and the combat capabilities.Replayability has always been key with Victor Vran. Tons of weapons, outfits, special powers and destiny cards allow you to choose how you experience the game, and randomly generated items complement hand-crafted ones to keep loot drops exciting. You'll fight plenty of foes, explore dungeons and all that jazz, but while doing it, you'll dodge and jump around attacks like some sort of crazy acrobat, something most RPGs don't bother experimenting with.

Arcade Series Knights of Valour Coming to PS4

about X hours ago from

Knights of Valour isn't a newcomer to the gaming scene. The sidescrolling action series saw its first release in arcades back in 1999 and has thrived in China and Japan ever since, spawning nine sequels/remixes in the last 15 years. Now, Knights of Valour is getting ready to make its console debut on PlayStation 4, complete with online co-op.The latest Knights of Valour is a brand new game, not a remix or re-release of an older title. The console overhaul adds a ton of new upgrades, characters, secrets, and boss battles, all while carefully preserving the spirit of its arcade heritage. Players take control of a hero with a highly customizable skillset, all of which is upgradeable as you collect and find new equipment. The core of the game is focused on hack and slash combat, of course, so no matter how much you geek out over stats, at the end of the day it's about destroying some baddies.Online co-op is baked into the Knights of Valour experience from the start. Up to four players can cooperate in the massive fray, each unleashing their own set of abilities to keep foes at bay. The game will be a free to play release modeled somewhat after the quarter-pumping arcade experience. Other paid content will include new characters, items, and skins.

Diablo 3 on Consoles Gets Seasons

Announced by Blizzard, Seasons in Diablo 3 will be making their way from their PC home onto consoles on March 31st, 2017. Seasons are periodical times in the world of Diablo 3, allowing players to level up differently and collect different cosmetic items. If you are new to Diablo 3 and would like to jump in on consoles (which, is arguably the best version of the game) this is the perfect time, with the statement from Blizzard stating; "If you’ve been itching to take a friend through the game for the first time, or simply want to experience the joy of playing the game with a clean slate, Seasons are the perfect way to do so." 

Day Of Infamy Storms Out Of Early Access Today

about X hours ago from

Day of Infamy, whose life began as a mod for the tactical FPS Insurgency, has now started a new life, free from the burden of its ancestry.  Someday down the road, Day of Infamy will be walking down the street, and a stranger will say, "Hey, aren't you that mod?", and it will respond, "No sir/madam, I'm a real life video game."  Huzzah!DoI shares many of its predecessor's traits, such as a tactical bent and eight player online co-op, but it's set in World War 2 instead of the modern era.  Originally created in 2015 as the aforementioned mod, it eventually made its way to Steam's Early Access program.  Today, it moves out of Early Access and into a full release.  As with Insurgency, the developers will probably continue adding content and making minor tweaks as time goes on, but the game is now considered to be in a largely complete state.The game's co-op mode, which I played off and on when the game was in Early Access, offers three modes and two difficulty modes for you and your squad to engage in throughout the various maps.  Even before the game was complete, the co-op was quite a bit of fun, provided you're looking for a slower-paced (but still a few notches above ARMA) experience.

Ghost Recon Wildlands Patch #2 is Live

Ghost Recon Wildlands Patch #2 is Live

If there is one thing I truly dislike about Ghost Recon Wildlands its the writing. The whole thing feels a bit too sophmoric for me. Perhaps I'm just getting curmudgin in my old age, I'm sure some folks find jokes about wooden cat legs being used for unspeakable acts as hilarious. Good news! If you'd rather not hear about the radio DJ's silly antics, you can turn them off thanks two a new update.The second patch for Ghost Recon tweaks a bunch of other things too, including the disabling of UI elements, support for left handed mouse and keyboard players, and giving players the option to choose which vehicle drops in the game world thanks to your rebel friends.Here's the full notes for the patch which is out now on PC and coming shortly to Xbox One and PS4. As always, in co-op you'll both need to be updated to the latest version to play - and at 5GBs in size - you may want to plan your co-op session ahead of time.
