We asked executive producer Jerk Gustafsson to tell us what the team has in store.

How To Customize Rory McIlroy PGA Tour Just The Way You Like It

about X hours ago from

Everybody's golf game is a little different – we all have our own Achilles' heel. In relation to EA Sports' PGA Tour franchise, some of us have trouble with putting; some with reading the ball lie; and some have a combination of problems. While this year's Rory McIlroy PGA Tour game (out in June for the new home consoles) isn't changing the gameplay to directly make things easier per se, the new customization options let you tweak the title's various mechanics and visual displays to suit the game to your skills.

Rory's gameplay is broken down into three styles: Arcade, Classic, and Tour. These roughly correspond to the swing mechanics, visual aids, and stuff that we've seen in past titles. Arcade lets you power boost and apply spin to the ball, Classic brings back the genre's infamous three-click swing (via fan demand), and Tour removes all the aids to try and give you a harder/more pure experience.

This isn't anything new, but where this title gets fun is that it lets you create a custom style by toggling and mixing what kinds of gameplay mechanics you prefer. So, if you like to be able to apply mid-air spin or see the ball line for where it might go after you put some draw on it, but don't need to see the putting grid, then you can tailor the experience to your style of play.

Overlord: Fellowship Of Evil Is A New Direction For The Series

about X hours ago from

The minions are returning in Overlord: Fellowship of Evil, but they aren't the only baddies that will be by your side. Four-player co-op comes to this latest entry in the franchise, and that's not the only change.

The downloadable game comes out this year to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC for $19.99, and features four-player online/offline co-op play (with minions in tow as well). You are one of the Netherghuls – created to stamp out a glimmer of happiness in the world. If you don't play co-op, you can still go through the game as a single player. This addition changes the camera to an overhead, isometric position,  and Codemaster intimates that other departures from the franchise's past may also be in store.

For a look back at the events leading up to Fellowship of Evil, check out this lead-in trailer.
