Deus Ex originally released in 2000, and to mark its 15th anniversary Square Enix and Eidos Montreal are allowing a fan mod to be released for free on Steam. The mod, called Revision, was created by Caustic Creative and revamps the game’s visuals and soundtrack while maintaining the original game’s cyberpunk charm.
Here’s what Caustic Creative’s John French had to say on this new mod:
“Where other projects fill in detail around the edges of the game by tuning gameplay mechanics or improving textures, we focus on the visceral core of the Deus Ex experience, bringing new level design, aesthetic direction and world-building detail.”
The newest Deus Ex game, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, will be released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on February 23rd, 2016.
Call of Duty: Black Ops III is coming out for both current and last-gen consoles, though the last-gen versions of the game will be missing a pretty big chunk of the game.
Revealed in a Call of Duty community blog, Black Ops III on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 will not have the single-player campaign present on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC versions.
The reason given was that, “The ambitious scope of the 1-4 player coop Campaign design of the PS4, Xbox One and PC versions could not be faithfully recreated on old generation hardware.”
This means that if you pick the game up on last-gen consoles then you will only be able to play multiplayer or zombie modes.
To make up for the loss, the last-gen versions of the game will retail at $49.99 compared to the current-gen $59.99, and will also come with a download code for the original Black Ops game.
Another day, another voice actor spilling the beans on an unannounced game. This time we have polish voice actor Alicja Bachleda-Curus, who played Anya Oliwa in Wolfenstein: The New Order and seems to have let slip a sequel is in the works.
In a chat with Poland’s TVN, she said the following:
“I’m working on a video game, first part of which I have already made. Now we’re making a second one, which will take two more years. I played this game as a child. I was very happy when I got to the point where I could shoot Hitler.”
I mean, that’s about as close as you can get to confirming a game without actually sayings its name. The New Order was one of the best FPS games to release last year, and I’m pretty sure just about everybody would be down for a round two.
We got a Resident Evil announcement today during the Tokyo Game Show, though it was not the one we were hoping for. Capcom took the stage to announce a new game called Resident Evil Umbrella Corps, which is described as a competitive multiplayer shooter in the same vein as Operation Raccoon City. For the sake of us all, lets hope that it ends up better than that one.
While the game is mostly third-person shooting action there will be some first-person shooting elements here and there. The matches will be quick and intense and feature maps themed from famous Resident Evil locations. Check out the first trailer for the game below.
Resident Evil Umbrella Corps will launch for PlayStation 4 and PC digitally early next year for $29.99.
Hatred developer Destructive Creations has announced that they will be releasing free DLC for their controversial isometric shooter tomorrow, September 10th.
This pack contains new maps, 3 new characters, new rank systems, new leaderboards and achievements.
If you’re interested, the game will be 35% off tomorrow on Steam to celebrate the release of the game’s new DLC. This sale will be good until September 17th.
The hype levels for Bungie’s Destiny were through the roof, as it was to be the first new IP they created since Halo. Both the alpha and beta were great and got everyone pumped for what everyone assumed was a lot more to come.
However, the game launched with little content and hardly any story at all, and extensions of this story have been released in the subsequent months as paid DLC. Many suspected that the game’s original story was cut up and revised so Activision could sell it in parts and make more money, and it looks like we finally have some proof of that.
New documents that were published by Venturebeat regarding the lawsuit between Bungie employee Maty O’Donnell and the studio confirm that Destiny’s story was “substantially” revised just a year before launch. You can click right here to view the documents and see everything for yourself.
EA has revealed the details for the upcoming beta for the highly-anticipated multiplayer shooter, Star Wars Battlefront.
The beta will be available to take part in on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in the early days of October and will feature 40-person battles on Hoth. There will also be a survival mission on Tatooine, which is most easily compared to the typical horde mode gametype.
There will also be a brand new mode called Drop Zone that is set to make its debut in the beta, though more information on that won’t be revealed until the beta draws nearer.
While news on how you can actually get into the beta has not been announced yet, you can sign up for more information by clicking right here.
