It’s always neat when developers include Easter eggs in their games – and it seems DICE have done precisely that with Battlefield 1. It all started when a Youtuber, jackfrags, discovered a pair of headphones on the multiplayer maps. Once players have the headphones, they’ll need to track down mcom stations to hear a message that plays out in Morse code. Now gamers are relentlessly pursuing these Easter eggs, to discover the meaning behind the Morse code messages – there’s a dedicated thread over on Reddit detailing their discoveries. But it seems that even now, the real meaning behind the … Read More »

It was inevitable that Battlefield 1 was going to be a smash hit – the question was, how big a hit it was going to be. Would you be surprised if we told you that the WWI shooter is number one in the charts? Probably not, but we’ll tell you anyway: Game sales suggest that Battlefield 1 is number one in the charts, taking the lion’s share of the market(approximately 45%, in fact). EA and DICE’s FPS also racked up another huge achievement: Battlefield 1’s sales beat the launch week sales of both Battlefield 4 and Hardline combined. Across all … Read More »

With just four days until Battlefield 1 is released, it’s time to check out how the WWI shooter stacks up in the graphics department. We always knew 4K gaming was going offer some of the best gaming visuals we could imagine, just soon as developers started taking advantage of the graphical upgrade – and these glorious screenshots from Battlefield 1 in 4K give us a taste of what’s to come. Showing off the Argonne Forest, Monte Grappa and Empire’s Edge, these screenshots were taken by Twitter user @Berduu at an EA capture event, who had this to say… For the record, … Read More »

Eagle-eyed gamers have spotted the sequel to EA’s Star Wars Battlefront on Amazon.co.uk. Despite mixed reviews to the original (sound design, graphics, atmosphere = good; all-too-easy accessibility, no story mode, lack of game modes and maps = bad), it was inevitable that we’d be seeing the release of Star Wars Battlefront II. Our real hope is that developer DICE have learnt lessons from issues raised with the previous game. As you’d expect from a game that’s barely been officially announced – with just a brief flash of the game’s logo at this year’s E3 aiming for a Holiday 2017 release … Read More »

Rockstar continues to melt gamers’ minds with a second tease about their next title. And you thought yesterday’s Twitter announcement would be the last we heard of Rockstar’s next release for a while? Think again. The studio today posted a new teaser image on Facebook and Twitter, this time featuring the silhouettes of seven gunslingers against a rising sun. You’ll also spot familiar rocky terrain of the Rio Bravo behind them. pic.twitter.com/iuwxwyL2cX — Rockstar Games (@RockstarGames) October 17, 2016 And here’s the image enlarged… Red Dead Magnificent Seven, anyone? This has left gamers wondering what sort of epic Western yarn … Read More »

Sonic Mania’s seriously sweet collector’s edition package was previous an exclusive for North American gamers – but now it seems that players in Europe will also be able to get their Sonic-like gloved paws on this collection. The game itself, a side-scrolling platformer , is being billed a return to Sonic’s Mega Drive roots, from the art style and gameplay to the inclusion of ‘remixed’ levels from previous Sonic titles. Developed by Headcannon and PagodaWest Games, Sonic Mania may be the shot in the arm that the series needs – something publisher Sega must be hoping for, after a string … Read More »

During a wide-ranging interview with Weekly Famitsu, Phil Spencer was asked about the differences between the upcoming PS4 Pro and Project Scorpio. The Xbox top dog didn’t seem to want to start another battle in the eternal console war, and began by explaining that there’s more to consoles than just throwing out impressively high numbers (or mentioning ‘blast processing’, come to think of it). So while Spencer was more than happy to remind the world that Scorpio’s performance can be discussed in relation to its 6 teraflops, he also believes that the games themselves are going to be a lot … Read More »

Phil Spencer has opened up about Xbox One’s performance in Japan, in an interview with Famitsu magazine. It’s no secret that the Xbox One has performed abysmally in Japan – the launch was pretty embarrassing, with interest levels low and just a handful of consoles sold. A lot of commentators have put that down to various reasons: Mobile gaming is more popular, and Microsoft being a western company, unlike rival Sony have been cited for the poor release. Now Xbox chief, Phil Spencer has discussed why he thinks the console has failed to ignite the East. In a frank exchange, … Read More »

Are you getting chills yet? Capcom certainly hope so, with their drip-feed of Resident Evil 7 teasers and trailers. And they’ve just released teaser vol. 2, ‘Shotgun in a Box’. This time, it’s focused on weapons and ammunition – or more accurately, the lack of them. There’s a damn good reason why the video’s single description reads: ‘Save your ammo… You’ll need it.’ The game’s graphics look absolutely gorgeous, consider it’s a horrifically dingy room we’re in. But perhaps more importantly for old-school fans, it’s nice to see the return of the traditional inventory box – along with the limited … Read More »
