Weekly News Round Up! 30/08 – 05/09
September has arrived along with two highly-anticipated games: Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and Mad Max. We’ll be having reviews for both out soon but, if you’re already playing, why not let us know what you think! Use the comments section below or head on over to our forums and get the discussions going! With all that said, let’s get down to this week’s top news.
It’s been an exciting week for sci-fi fans with both Destiny and Star Wars in the headlines. Bungie held it’s final live stream with the “Court of Oryx” reveal; it was revealed that The Taken King’s Raid won’t be available on launch day but “hot on the heels of” launch day, which might turn out to be launch day – in other words, watch this space – and that there’ll be changes to Nightfall and Strikes; The Taken King achievements were leaked; it turns out you’ll need to update Destiny even if you don’t buy The Taken King, and you might want to purchase a new hard drive to fit in the update. Finally, we got to take a closer look at some of The Taken King‘s new weapons, and got a launch gameplay trailer.
Not quite as much Star Wars Battlefront news but what there is should be enough to make even Jabba the Hutt happy: a first look at the game’s Battle of Jakku and the announcement of a console beta. And if you’re really wanting to immerse yourself in the Star Wars zone, check out these Turtle Beach headphones – it’s probably the closest sense you’ll get to being in Star Wars this side of slicing open a freezing deer and embedding yourself inside it like Luke did with a tauntaun on Hoth. We did say last time that winter is coming.
This week we’ve also seen a new mech prototype for Beyond Flesh and Blood; an Xbox One with Elite controller bundle; and, technically from the week before, Razer’s Wildcat Xbox One controller. Oh, and if you’re worried Fallout 4 won’t last you long enough, worry no more.
Until next time, have a good week!
