Hello Games’ No Man’s Sky has been receiving quite a bit of hype ever since it was announced due to its unique gameplay and visuals. In the game you have the ability to explore the near-infinite bounds of space, with each planet being unique from the last.
Every game has to have a limit, right? Well, sort of. In an interview with IGN, Hello Studios’ co-founder Sean Murray said that it would take approximately 5 billion years to see everything in the game.
Yup, that’s a pretty long time.
No Man’s Sky is being developed for the PlayStation 4 and PC and is set to be released sometime next year.
Warner Bros. Interactive has revealed that Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor has moved up a week, making it yet another game that is sneaking out of the over-crowded month of October.
The game was originally set to release on October 7th, but now it is hitting North America on September 30th. The game will then be released on PC and Steam on October 2nd.
WB claims that the release was moved up due to fans excitement, but I think it’s pretty obvious that October 7th was simply too crowded of a release date. The date still hols NBA 2k15, DriveClub and Alien: Isolation, with Dragon Age: Inquisition recently being pushed back to November from its original October 7th release date.
Rocksteady has gone and done the unthinkable, I’m afraid. At a recent hands-on event for the game they held which showed off the game’s batmobile they broke the news that the game would not meet its October 14th release date. In fact, it won’t be coming in 2014 at all.
No specific reason for the delay of the game was released, though it being the final chapter of the critically-acclaimed series has me thinking they just want this thing as good as it can possibly be. The month of October is already pretty crowded, anyway; with Alien: Isolation, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Driveclub, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, Evolve and The Evil Within all slated to release that month. Holy crap.
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot is very confident that Watch Dogs is going to sell over 6 million copies. Well, 6.3 million, to be exact.
Guillemot claims that he can set the high goal due to the massive success of the Assassin’s Creed franchise. It also doesn’t hurt that the game has had an incredibly great ad campaign, and just about every new tidbit of information has been relished by just about everyone.
Watch Dogs is being developed by Ubisoft for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC and will be released on May 27th. A Wii U version is also being developed and is set to be released at the end of the year.
The Elder Scrolls Online released for the PC back in the beginning of April and was met with exceptionally mixed reviews. However, the console versions of the game have yet to be released, and although they were originally planned for a June release the developers have recently confirmed that that is no longer possible.
Now, developer Bethesda is claiming that an even bigger delay is coming. According to the FAQ page they are claiming that they all came to an agreement that the game needs around 6 more months of development time to get some extra polish and make this game commercially ready.
Here’s where it gets interesting, though – Very quickly after that message was posted it was deleted and the developers began banning those where were posting images or text related to this message.
So, what’s the deal? Who knows, but whatever the case may be it looks like the developers really have no clue how much longer it will take to get these console versions of the game commercially ready, and due to the mixed reception that the PC version received they are probably going to be taking their time to fix some of the glaring complaints.
The sci-fi action RPG from developer Supergiant Games, Transistor, has been given an official release date of May 20th in North America and May 21st in Europe. The game is set to release on PlayStation 4 and PC.
The game will cost $19.99 when purchased through the PS Store, but is currently unavailable for any kind of pre-order. Apparently, the developers are working on it. Slackers.
I will say that the game sounds very interesting. You control a young singer named Red who comes into possession of a mysterious sword called Transistor that has some form of intelligence. Sounds whacky, out there, and that’s why a weirdo like me is interested in it. I’ll be reserving judgment due to it only being a release date.
The first-person horror game Daylight from Zombie Studios now has a release month, thanks to a video posted on IGN. The studio director Jared Gerritzen discusses the game for a couple minutes and reveals that both the PC and PlayStation 4 version will be released this April. Continue reading →
