EA confirms Battlefield 4

Battlefield 4 is coming. More importantly, it is likely to be coming on a next-gen console. Furthermore, you can pay £50 to get beta access, right now. Just go to the Battlefield home screen on your console/PC.
The statement that was released was eager to keep fans interested in Battlefield 3, stating “it still has plenty of life left in it” with “3 more expansion packs on the way”.
It seems like EA want us to stay interested in BF3 and just let them work on BF4 given how it was a mistake that this information was released.
But hey, Battlefield 4 is definitely a thing and will most likely appear in 2013. To find out what needs to be improved in BF3 for BF4, you should read this. 

New MD3 DLC now available.

Were you one of the millions excited for Terminal? Me too. Now (if you are an elite member/own an Xbox 360) you can start playing Terminal, Offshore and Decommission. Terminal will be released free of charge a day later for non-elite members. Haven’t heard of Offshore or Decommission? (Courtesy of CVG.)

Decommission

  • A graveyard of rotting [or add decommissioned here] ocean liners has not only given birth to a shantytown of locals, but a mid-sized Multiplayer Map populated in chokepoints; providing the perfect setting for shoreline-based combat.

Offshore

  • Trapped on an oil rig in the middle of the ocean, you have nowhere to go but directly at your enemies in this new Multiplayer map boasting helipads, cranes, and countless perches for snipers eager to pick off the competition. Did we mention to look down or else you may fall off?

Offshore sounds incredible. I’m thinking a slightly gloomier Highrise with a few more choke-points. Hopefully the entire map will sway from side to side too….

Metal Gear Solid 4 to PS Vita?

Four years after it’s release, MGS4 is being updated with a trophy patch. Why now?
Next month marks the 25th anniversary of the Metal Gear series. In an event happening on August 30th, Hideo Kojima has said he will be announcing something related to his “vision of connecting people”. He says it will involve transferring. (For those of you unaware of what this is – transferring saved game data between two devices, e.g- The MGS2 + MGS3 HD remakes on PS3 and PS Vita).
During the Vita reveal in Japan last year, Hideo showed MGS4 working on a Vita, so we all know it could happen.
All I know is that upon hearing this news, I would be devastated if I couldn’t take down Liquid Snake on the bus.

Battlefield 3 custom competitive matches now available.

These new competitive matches let players set game settings, team sizes, maps, unlocks, and other goodies at their own will. The best part is that these custom matches will still be tracked by EA, so they remain as competitive as ever.
The only downside? You have to rent a server from EA. There isn’t much way of figuring out what they charge unless you have experience in this. So have you rented one yet? What’s the damage?
It’s a brilliant idea for EA to make more revenue and give players the power that most hackers have.

Video Game News! 28th June 2012 – New games, new endings.

Nuketown confirmed for Black Ops 2

An update from the popular Nuketown map in Black Ops will be included for free with pre-orders. “Nuketown 2025” is said to be ‘re-imagined for the future’. Does this mean the mannequins will be alive? Will the end-game nuke look futuristic and sparkly? There aren’t any real details except the actual conformation of the map. To be honest I don’t care about that, I’m just happy my favourite map is back for Black Ops 2. What’s that? It was your favourite too? Tell me something I don’t know.

Mass Effect 3 get’s a new ending

Released on June 26th, the new DLC “Extended cut” allows Mass Effect players to experience a different ending. I myself still plan to play through Mass Effect 3 so I still have no idea what happens at the end of the original game. All you need to know is that it drew plenty of criticism. Good news is that the additional ending is free and apparently “answers more questions and brings closure in a way that the original ending did not”. If you have played it through, did the new ending meet expectations?

Watch Dogs. The first ‘next-gen’ game?

Is it possible for this gorgeous looking game to run on the current consoles?! The amount of detail going on in this one frame is simply absurd. Yes, we saw it in action at E3 and we are all excited for it’s release on the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC during 2013. However, a lot could happen in the next 8-12 months. Do you think we could be playing this on the 720 and PS4?

Kaz Hirai steps down as Chairman of the Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) Board

Kaz Hirai has moved away from Playstation. Before being appointed Sony CEO in April, Kaz Hirai had helped restore the company’s games division following a disastrous end to the reign of Ken Kutaragi. He has not left Sony though! His attention has merely shifted towards televisions, music and phones.

Metal Gear Solid 5 Confirmed

Solid Snake and Hideo Kojima aren’t finished yet. Hideo has said there will be more infiltration along with narrative trees to make the storyline more involving. He explained in an interview how he “loved the social interactions in Deus Ex: Human Revolution”. Solid Snake is confirmed to be part of the storyline which has no relevance to the new Metal Gear Rising game set to be released in 2013. Regardless, this news comes as a shock to Metal Gear fans after Metal Gear Solid 4 seemed to bring the series to an end.
