Far Cry 4 Launch Trailer Gives Us A Scenic Tour Of Kyrat

about X hours ago from

Far Cry 4 will set us loose in the treacherous mountains of the fictional country of Kyrat. If the previous entries in the series are any indication, we'll have our hands full of armed militants and angry wildlife.

The launch trailer follows the recent trend of "101 Videos," featuring basic information to bring you up to speed on the world, the weapons, and the "weaponized elephants." Normally we wouldn't go in for the marketing lingo, but there's just something about pachyderms girded for war that feels right.

Far Cry 4 also features co-op play during the campaign and player-versus-player modes. The title is out on November 18 for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC. For more, check out our preview from Gamescom.

WWE 2K15 Missing Legacy Customization Options In Service Of A New System

about X hours ago from

Last week, we shared with you the first video for WWE 2K15 Superstar Suite. Today, we know more about the full menu of options that will be available to players on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.Visual Concepts art director Lynell Jinks says that some long-time features won't be making their way to the new-gen versions of the game, though. The options to create arenas, Divas, championships, and narratives through the story designer will not make the cut for WWE 2K15.

"This decision was extremely difficult, but a necessary one, in order to deliver a more focused and polished game," Jinks writes. "The primary reason we did not announce these changes earlier is due to the team working until the last minute to retain as many features as possible."

The team is adding a fan-requested toolset in the form of the Superstar Studio. This will allow players to update wrestler entrance and in-ring attire to keep them current with movements in the WWE.

While players can upload anything they want, 2K Sports says it has systems in place to flag inappropriate content. The process for uploading an image to the game was also detailed:

about X hours ago from

I recently spent more than an hour with the upcoming Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer beta. The slice of gameplay featured two modes (including one entirely new), three maps, and new match pacing thanks to Spartan upgrades.

The Halo 5 is technically called the Halo 5: Guardians Arena Beta. That’s a mouthful, but there’s a reason for the inclusion of the extra word. 343 Industries wants to make sure that Halo 5 has strong foundations for the eSports community. When the game launches, there will be a seven different tiers that players get slotted into based on the new skill rating system. The top tier is called Pro, with 343 hoping to see fans climb the ranks and make their marks.

Even seasoned Halo fans have new features to get used to in Halo 5: Guardians. The beta introduces a number of them, including some that drastically overhaul fundamentals that have been with the series since Combat Evolved.
