Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare multiplayer trailer revealed

Speed is clearly a big focus on the next Call of Duty's multiplayer.
Speed is clearly a big focus on the next Call of Duty’s multiplayer.

Fast.

That’s the best word to describe Advanced Warfare’s multiplayer. With the futuristic setting giving more flex in regards to creative design, the gameplay itself is somewhat reminiscent of Titanfall with regards to the speed of movement and different approaches players can take advantage of to flank their opponent.

Perks and powerups like invisibility and a heat-vision-esque enemy tracker are just some of the new additions to keep the action fresh, and along with customizable characters and dynamic environments that change as you go, this is certainly the most significant amount of changes that the Call of Duty franchise has undergone since the release of Modern Warfare.

Sledgehammer Games’ Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will be releasing November 4th for Xbox One, Xbox 360, Playstation 4, Playstation 3, and PC.

Dying Light gameplay trailer revealed

Techland, the developer of the upcoming first-person shooter Dying Light, has revealed a new gameplay trailer just days before the start of Gamescom.

A massive open-world, an incredible variety of weapons, and an attempt to spur a meaningful story through the brutality involved is an exciting prospect for the zombie genre.

Techland’s recent “Humanity” trailer shows the company has a clear desire to bring a deeper emotional adventure for players to question and examine the narrative told.

The story only strengthens the excitement of the action unfolding within the game. Free-running through an open environment and implementation of unique lighting technology in the urban-setting are tremendous assets to creating an immersive world.

The lively traversal of terrain involving dramatic jumps across buildings, and quick shortcuts with ziplines and grappling hooks, the intensity of Dying Light never seems to die down.

Along with a planned four player co-op for player-multiplayer option to experience and enhance the immersion of the game together, there

While other zombie games have been released in the past, many have underwhelmed when compared to the potential the genre has. Dying Light’s balance of progressive and contemporary gameplay give good reason for zombie fans and gamers in general to be enthusiastic about Dying Light‘s February 2015 release on PC, Playstation 4, Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.

Battlefiend Hardline delayed to 2015

Though it was originally planned to release October 21st this year, EA/Dice has delayed their next Battlefield game to early 2015. Since Battlefield Hardline’s beta released at E3, Dice stated that they gained a better idea of what its fans want and have elected to delay the game to ensure a more finished product.

The developer looks to focus on addressing stability issues, campaign depth, and multiplayer diversity. The beta released was very simple and had little depth or distinguishable features. Most of the game itself looked to as if it was just a simple re-textured Battlfield 4.

Battlefield’s official blog explains their reasoning  behind the delay:

Today we are announcing that Battlefield Hardline will launch in early 2015. Obviously, this is big news, so I’d like to address why we’re making this change.

Back at E3, we launched a beta for Hardline — we wanted to not only show you the game, but to let you play it for yourselves. Millions of you jumped in and had a great time.  As a result, the Visceral Games team learned a lot from players about what they wanted in the game. We’ve been pouring over the data and feedback, and have already been putting a lot of it right into the game and sharing it directly with you.

This feedback also spurred us to start thinking about other possibilities and ways we could push Hardline innovation further and make the game even better. The more we thought about these ideas, the more we knew we had to get them into the game you will all be playing. However, there was only one problem. We would need more time. Time that we didn’t have if we decided to move forward with launching in just a couple of months.

We decided that the right thing to do was to take more time to ensure Hardline is the best, most innovative Battlefield experience we can give to you, our fans.

Here are a few of the things the new timing will allow us to accomplish:

1. Multiplayer Innovation: Coming out of our E3 beta, internal focus tests, and work with our community, we have received a lot of great Multiplayer thinking. We’re going to be adding some new feature ideas direct from the community that will evolve the cops and criminals fantasy into a truly unique Battlefield Multiplayer experience.

2. Single Player Story Depth: In order to ensure our Single Player experience delivers on player expectations, we’re spending more time polishing our core features, as well as adding a few new ones that will support a deeper “crime revenge” story experience.

3. Stability: This has been a focus for our team since day one and we’re going to be using the extra time to continue to optimize the game for a stable launch. We have learned a lot from Battlefield 4, are continuing to learn from our Community Test Environment and will learn more from another Hardline beta. More time allows us to surface issues that the team can attempt to fix prior to launch.

We are doing all of this for one reason. Because we want Battlefield Hardline to be the best game it can be, and so that we can create the best environment for a smooth launch for our players. We will give you updates on our progress and we’ll regularly share updates along the way viaBattlefield.com/Hardline as well as the Battlefield social channels.

In addition to the ongoing development of Hardline, it’s important to note that the DICE teams continue to drive Battlefield 4. We continue to explore new opportunities for improvements and we are still releasing new content, including “Dragon’s Teeth,” the fourth expansion pack that launches worldwide on July 29, and “Final Stand” coming later this year.  We remain committed to giving you the best BF4 experience possible.
