Sci-fi Adventure ECHO for PS4 and PC Launches September 19th

Sci-fi Adventure ECHO Set to Reverberate on PC & PS4

Copenhagen-based indie developers Ultra Ultra have announced that their debut game, the third-person sci-fi adventure ECHO, will launch on September 19th for PC and PS4, priced £18.99.

Introducing En, a callow space traveler who, after a century in stasis, arrives at her destination: A Palace born of legend, a marvel of an ancient civilisation eons gone, still awaiting its first human occupants. Out here, using forgotten technology, En hopes to bring back a life that should not have been lost...

A character-driven story of introspection and discovery, ECHO quickly develops into something much more unsettling. Stepping into the shoes of En, it becomes clear that The Palace itself studies everything you are, everything that you do; in order to use it against you.

The Palace creates ‘Echoes’, with the sole purpose of destroying you. The game will shift and change as you do, constantly evolving its Echoes based your actions - If you sneak, they will get stealthier. If you shoot, they will start to shoot back.

Your only respite lies in the sanctuary of a Blackout. As The Palace shuts down in order to update its deadly copies of En, you have a small window of opportunity to act without consequence. But beware, when The Palace comes back online, your pursuers will now be even more relentless.

The enemy is you.

Maximum Games Kicks Off Free Dead Alliance Multiplayer Open Beta

Leading video game publisher Maximum Games has launched the free multiplayer open beta of the upcoming team-based shooter Dead Alliance, running from July 27th – July 31st on the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC.

Developed by Psyop Games and IllFonic, Dead Alliance raises the stakes of competitive shooters with the advent of zMods, zombie-controlling tech that can be used to strategically strike, swarm, flank, block, distract and surprise opponents in the heat of battle. The game is set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland where teams of warring military factions fight for control of humanity’s last resources. At launch, Dead Alliance will feature a variety of single-player and 4v4 multiplayer modes, including Team Deathmatch, Attrition, King of the Hill, Capture and Hold, Free for All and Solo Survival.

Dead Alliance is expected to officially release on the PlayStation®4 system, Xbox One and Windows PC on August 29th and is available to preorder now for £29.99 at major retailers and online.

Well, Chris was on, so we had to talk about fighting games, right? Evolution 2017 crowned Street Fighter veteran Tokido as champion, nearly saw ChrisG repeat as Marvel 3 champ, but fall short, a glorious showing out of Tekken 7, and provided an amazing finish to Smash 4. With so much action, there was no doubt that we'd be talking about Evo.

Fortnite Will Be Free Next Year, But It's Selling A Lot In The Meantime
Jul 26, 2017 - 3:20 PM - by Emabulator

Fortnite sales are off to a good start for Epic Games. GameSpot has the story.

Fortnite is scheduled to launch in full sometime next year as a free-to-play game, and it was recently released in Early Access on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. However, it's currently only playable if you purchase a paid version of the game. In spite of the fact that it'll be free next year, Fortnite has already sold a lot of copies.

On Twitter today, Fortnite creative director Darren Sugg revealed that over 500,000 people have already purchased one of the game's paid tiers. It's currently available in several packs: the $40 standard version comes with access to the game as well as loot packs and cosmetic items. The $60 Deluxe, $80 Super Deluxe, and $150 Limited Editions include more bonuses like additional heroes, weapon packs, and more.

The long wait for the game appears to not have dampened player anticipation for it; in fact, if anything, excitement and interest seems even higher because of its delays. Fortnite was first revealed way back in December 2011; since then, it's gone through numerous revisions, with Epic's CEO saying in 2016 that "it's a game that takes time to get right."

Adobe To End-Of-Life Its Browser Crashing Plugin Flash
Jul 25, 2017 - 1:00 PM - by Emabulator

GameSpot has the story.

If you've ever had your browser crash--and who hasn't?--there's a good chance that Flash was to blame. Adobe, the company behind Flash, has announced its plans to kill off the platform in the coming years.

In a post on its website today, Adobe announced it will "end-of-life Flash," which means it will go through the process of phasing it out as companies continue to migrate to alternatives. "Specifically, we will stop updating and distributing the Flash Player at the end of 2020 and encourage content creators to migrate any existing Flash content to these new open formats," it said.

The next three-plus years will still see Flash supported by Adobe, including the release of security updates. It will, however, "move more aggressively to EOL Flash in certain geographies where unlicensed and outdated versions of Flash Player are being distributed." Various companies, including Microsoft, Apple (which gleefully notes that it's already blocked by default in Safari), and Google, all have their own plans for handling the phase out for Flash, but the end result is that you should begin seeing it even less than you have recently.

It's a move that has been a long time coming--Apple famously left out support for Flash from the iPhone, which portended its inevitable demise almost a decade ago. The tech has been largely rendered obsolete as other standards have emerged, including HTML5.

Epic Games is excited to announce that Fortnite, its third-person Action Building game, is available now in paid Early Access for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac.

Epic also revealed the cast of veteran voice actors lending their talents to help the story of Fortnite shine across hundreds of hours of gameplay.

"As we created the world of Fortnite, with its heroic moments and quirky sense of humor, we knew it would be important to have a mixture of veteran voices and exceptional new talent in order to connect the players to the game's story," said Creative Director Darren Sugg. “Just as we've built Fortnite with the players, we were honored to have a group of amazing performers become part of our community and to help us bring this brand new world to life."

Disastrous Pokemon Go Fest in Chicago left Niantic "horrified with the results"
Jul 24, 2017 - 2:38 PM - by Emabulator

VG247 has the story.

Pokemon Go players weren’t the only ones who were “horrified”.

Even if you’re not a Pokemon Go player, I’m sure that by now, you’ve heard about the disastrous Pokemon Go fest in Chicago over the weekend.

The event was a big deal for Niantic. There was a livestream and Legendary pokemon were going to be announced. It was meant to be all sorts of fun, for young and old alike.

In reality, the game suffered a number of issues that weren’t just limited to the event. Niantic CEO John Hanke was met with booing when he took to the stage, and chants of “We Can’t Play” and “Fix the Game.”

If you think you can sit through the highlight reel (or lowlight?) of the most horrendous moments from the livestream, you can watch the cringe fest here. It’s one hell of a supercut.

For the most part, the hosts ignored the crowd’s boos, powering through as if it wasn’t happening. So what was Niantic thinking when all of this was going on.

DC's Doomsday Clock Art Teases Universe Altering Crossover With Watchmen
Jul 23, 2017 - 11:26 AM - by Emabulator

GameSpot has the story.

DC Comics has another large-scale event coming this fall, and for the first time, aspects of Alan Moore's iconic story The Watchmen will be combining with the DC Universe in Doomsday Clock. During a panel at San Diego Comic-Con, writer Geoff Johns showed off some interior art for the book and vaguely discussed the story.

Ever since Watchmen's Dr. Manhattan appeared at the end of DC's Rebirth one-shot, back in June 2016, fans have been wanting answers. Rebirth relaunched the DC by combining elements of the New 52 line with Pre-Flashpoint material. A task this large could be daunting, but during a panel for the event at Comic-Con, writer Geoff Johns seemed up for the challenge.

While Doomsday Clock seemed to be the highlight of the panel, Johns was relatively tight-lipped about the event. "You'll know in the first page of the first issue, you'll know exactly what the story's about" Johns said during the panel.

The logo for the event mixes the Doomsday Clock with the Superman emblem. Johns said that the Man of Steel is the story but did not go much deeper into detail. Moving forward, Johns mentioned some more elements about the upcoming event: "I love seeing the smartest man from one world talking to the smartest man from another. And the smartest man from this world, from DC, is Lex Luthor. And that's all I'll say." Those familiar with Watchmen will know the smartest man on that world is Ozymandias. However, there is no confirmation about whether that character will appear in Doomsday Clock as of yet.

Intel Skylake-X: Intel's New Six, Eight and Ten-Core CPUs Reviewed
Jul 23, 2017 - 8:44 AM - by Emabulator

The Digital Foundry at Eurogamer has the goods.

The core takeaway from our first run of benches is that every i7 in the Basin Falls line-up - and by extension, other modern i7s like the 6700K and 7700K - are phenomenally good gaming CPUs. With the exception of the Ashes of the Singularity CPU stress test (designed to push the game engine beyond usual limits) all of these chips produces excellent gaming results. On top of that, performance minimums are all above the crucial 60 frames per second. And this is all with no overclocking - although all-core turbo (an out-of-the-box OC usually enabled by default) may be active here, despite disabling it in the BIOS. And that guarantee of tip-top performance really is what has made the i7 brand such a winner over the last few years: Core i5 gets you to 60fps for the majority of titles, while i7 takes care of the most challenging fare.

But to what extent do the many-core chips actually improve upon the quad-core experience? There has been talk of degraded gaming performance on Skylake-X and you will note that the the quad-core i7 7740X is managing to equal or best the six-core i7 7800X in a couple of tests. The interconnectivity fabric between the cores in the big chips has been revamped, and this has impacted game performance on some titles. But you can see that generally, more modern game engines tend to benefit from the additional cores - but the improvements are incremental at best, best felt in the lowest performing areas of those titles.

If you're ever looking for one single game on which to judge a prospective CPU purchase, Crysis 3 and its Welcome to the Jungle stage should be your number one destination. It thrives on whatever CPU resources you can throw at it, and the many-core chips love it with minimums in the 80s (vs 66fps on the quad-core 7740X). Mainstream CPUs don't stand a chance here, with even an overclocked i5 7600K at 4.8GHz unable stay north of 60fps (45ps minimum - really).

Xbox Hardware Revenue Down 29% After Fall in Q4 Sales
Jul 23, 2017 - 8:08 AM - by Emabulator

MCV has the story.

Microsoft has released its Q4 earnings report for FY17, and its gaming revenue has increased three per cent year-on-year to hit $1.6bn, driven largely by Xbox software sales and services.

This figure may well have been higher, however, were it not partly offset by a decline in Xbox hardware revenue. This fell by 29 per cent year-on-year, mostly due to lower prices and a decline in the volume of consoles sold, Microsoft said.

Software sales, meanwhile, were up 11 per cent year-on-year thanks to a higher volume of Xbox Live transactions. Indeed, Microsoft reported that there are now 53m active users on Xbox Live as of Q4 FY17 from 52m in Q3 FY17. That said, it's still down on Q2 FY17's 55m active users.

Gaming is just one part of Microsoft's personal computing section, however, which as a whole fell by two per cent year-on-year. This was due to declining revenue from Microsoft's phone division, which "contributed four percentage points of decline" according to Microsoft's earnings call slides.

"Our gaming business is now more than $9 billion, and growing profitably," Microsoft's CEO Satya Nadella said during the company's earnings call.

Iron Fist Renewed for Season 2 at Netflix, Taps New Showrunner
Jul 22, 2017 - 11:48 AM - by Emabulator

Raven Metzner (Fox's Sleepy Hollow, NBC's Heroes Reborn, and TNT's Falling Skies) will take over as showrunner for Iron Fist Season 2. Variety has the story.

Netflix has renewed the Marvel series “Iron Fist” for Season 2.

Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb made the announcement at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday. In addition, Loeb hinted that Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick) would team up with NYPD detective Misty Knight (Simone Missick), who first appeared in Season 1 of “Luke Cage.” The characters previously partnered together in the Marvel comic books.

“Iron Fist” stars “Game of Thrones” alum Finn Jones as Danny Rand, the heir to the multi-billion dollar Rand Corp. who returns to New York after training for years in the mysterious city of K’un-Lun. Through his training, he was chosen to be the living weapon known as the Iron Fist, which allows him to channel his chi energy into his fists.

The Second Map from BF1: They Shall Not Pass is Now Live for Premium Owners
Jul 21, 2017 - 4:14 PM - by Emabulator

The Escapist has the story.

Yesterday marked the launch of the second map from the Battlefield 1 They Shall Not Pass DLC, as well as a week long free trial of Premium.

If you're a Battlefield 1 Premium Pass owner, you may have noticed that a new map dropped yesterday. Named "Prise de Tahure," DICE says that the map is "set in the hours just before dawn in a small countryside town that serves as the arena in the fight over the Champagne-Ardennes region. Players will fight as the French or German army in high intensity, close combat battles over the control of the Tahure region."

If you are not a Premium Pass member, you may have also noticed that you have access to that map. Why? Because yesterday EA kicked off the first "Premium Trials" event for BF1. Until July 27, all the maps from the BF1 Premium Pass are available to everyone. That means you have a week to check out all the additional maps, the French Army, the Frontlines game mode, and more.

It is worth noting that you will only receive experience on the DLC maps if you actually own the Premium Pass or that specific DLC. Otherwise, your XP will be saved for you, and will be added retroactively if and when you purchase the additional content. There's one other restriction: DICE says that, "only owners of a Battlefield 1 Premium Pass or the specific expansion pack can spawn in with weapons and vehicles unique to the expansion."

Full Throttle Remastered Is Available Now On iOS
Jul 21, 2017 - 12:13 PM - by Emabulator

Game Informer has the story.

Full Throttle Remastered released earlier this year on PlayStation 4, Vita, and PC, and now it's available on iOS for just $4.99.

Full Throttle is a classic LucasArts adventure game from 1995 that creator Tim Schafer and Double Fine just gave a fresh coat of paint. In our review, we said "The quirks of the original game are as attractive today as they were then, and this version does a fine job smoothing out the rough edges, making Full Throttle Remastered a road trip worth taking."

DC's Next Movie Looks Likely To Be Shazam
Jul 21, 2017 - 11:52 AM - by Emabulator

GameSpot has the story.

While Marvel's schedule is packed with future movies, things have been a bit less busy at DC. Justice League and Aquaman are both due out in the next 12 months, but beyond that, it has been unclear what the next movie from the studio will be. It has now been reported that Shazam will go into production early next year for a 2019 release.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Shazam will be directed by David F. Sandberg. Sanberg scored a hit last year with the thriller Lights Out, and his horror sequel Annabelle: Creation arrives next month.

Dwayne Johnson was previously announced in the role of Shazam's nemesis Black Adam and is set to appear in a spinoff movie focusing on that character. However, it is unknown if he will also appear in the Shazam movie.

Although Shazam will be the next DC film to start shooting, the studio has plenty more films in the pipeline. Following the huge success of Wonder Woman, a sequel is likely to be announced soon. War of the Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves is set to direct the standalone Batman movie, while Suicide Squad director David Ayer is developing Gotham City Sirens, focusing on the female villains of the DC universe. It was also reported last week that The Shallows director Jaume Collet-Serra might helm Suicide Squad 2, replacing the previously rumoured Mel Gibson.

George RR Martin Does Everything EXCEPT Work on Winds of Winter
Jul 20, 2017 - 5:49 PM - by vallor
Variety Online comes to us with the news that George RR Martin is has decided to bone up on his executive producer skills by helping bring "Who Fears Death" by African Author Nnedi Okorafor to the small screen with his long time partner HBO.

Interesting trivia: author Nnedi Okorafor actually finished her series. GRRM might want to take some notes.

I wonder where actually finishing his own series fits on his to-do list. Obviously below his SJW political activism, writing sci-fi novellas to option off to the Syfy channel, and writing novellas based on GoT.
