Zack Snyder Steps Down From 'Justice League' to Deal With Family Tragedy
May 24, 2017 - 12:11 PM - by Emabulator

The Hollywood Reporter has the story.

Snyder tells The Hollywood Reporter he is stepping away from Justice League, Warner Bros.’ all-star DC Comics superhero mega-movie that is in postproduction, in order to deal with the sudden death of his daughter. Snyder's wife, Deborah Snyder, who is a producer on Justice League, also is taking a break to focus on the healing of their family.

Stepping in to shepherd the movie through post and the shooting of some additional scenes will be Joss Whedon, the Avengers filmmaker and creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. With Whedon's help, the movie is still on track for its Nov. 17 release date.

Snyder’s daughter Autumn Snyder died by suicide in March at age 20. Her death has been kept private, with only a small inner circle aware of what happened, even as the movie was put on a two-week break for the Snyders to deal with the immediate effects of the tragedy. Zack Snyder says he initially was eager to return to the film, which stars Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa and Ezra Miller.

“In my mind, I thought it was a cathartic thing to go back to work, to just bury myself and see if that was the way through it,” said an emotional Snyder in an interview Monday in his office on the Warner Bros. lot, with Deborah sitting by his side. “The demands of this job are pretty intense. It is all-consuming. And in the last two months, I’ve come to the realization … I’ve decided to take a step back from the movie to be with my family, be with my kids, who really need me. They are all having a hard time. I’m having a hard time.”

Grand Theft Auto V Ships 80 Million Units
May 23, 2017 - 3:59 PM - by Emabulator

GameSpot has the story.

Grand Theft Auto V continues to be a massive success. More than three years after the game's release in 2013, the open-world action game has now passed 80 million units shipped worldwide. This is up from 75 million units back in February. Continued strong sales is no surprise, given GTA V continues to make it onto the top-selling charts in the US, UK, Australia, and New Zealand.

During an conference call after Take-Two's latest earnings report today, CEO Strauss Zelnick said GTA V and GTA Online "outperformed [Take-Two's] expectations during the fourth quarter as they have in every period since they released." GTA Online has been a big winner as well, with the game continuing to see year-over-year growth in recurrent spending. Zelnick said Rockstar is planning "much more" in terms of future updates.

Also during the call, Zelnick praised GTA V for being the "standard bearer for creative excellence" in the video game industry.

'Get Even' Postpones Release Date Following Islamist Terrorist Attack in Manchester
May 23, 2017 - 1:47 PM - by Emabulator

Game Informer has the story.

The Farm 51's Get Even, an upcoming shooter that was planned to come out on May 26, has postponed its release following the Manchester terrorist attack yesterday evening. Get Even is now planning to release a month later, on June 23.

Get Even is narrative-focused with an emphasis on psychological horror. In the game, which has photorealistic visuals, the protagonist makes his way through derelict environments with only a phone and gun on hand. You can view the trailer, which features an abandoned warehouse and a young woman tied up and strapped to a bomb, by heading here. Because of the game's themes, Farm 51 felt it was ill-suited to release so quickly following the Manchester attack.

"Given recent events and out of respect we have decided to postpone the commercial release of Get Even," writes developer Farm 51 in a statement. "We would like to express our deepest condolences to everyone concerned."

Battlefield 1 Adds Female Soldiers To Multiplayer With New DLC
May 23, 2017 - 12:27 PM - by Emabulator

GameSpot has the story.

Battlefield 1's next big DLC pack is called In the Name of the Tsar, and its main addition is the Russian Army. Alongside four new maps, the pack will include Russian vehicles, soldiers, and weapons. This week, EA revealed a cool detail about the map pack: the Russian Scout class will be represented by a female soldier from the Women's Battalion of Death.

The publisher recently announced this on Twitter, giving no other details about the Russian Army or the Scout Class. However, this is a notable addition to a series that until now has predominately featured men in multiplayer modes.

This seems like a good way to increase awareness of a part of World War I that isn't widely known. The Women's Battalion of Death was formed in 1917 as a desperate attempt by the Russian Provisional Government to inspire morale and support for the war effort. Although women had been serving in small numbers in the standard Russian Army before this, some women pressured the government to create female-only units. Several of the resulting battalions were sent to the front lines to fight against Germany. Estimates of the number of women who fought range in the several thousands.

Click on the Headline for the Trailer.

Originally known as Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen in Japan, Mask of Deception is a grand tale meant to enchant the hearts and minds of players in search of incredible journey. The game begins atop a snowy mountain where the protagonist awakens in an unfamiliar wilderness, surrounded by deadly creatures, with nothing but a hospital gown and a splitting headache. However, he’s eventually rescued by a beautiful girl named Kuon, who sports both adorable animal ears and a beastlike tail. Finding that the hapless man has no memory of anything, Kuon decides to take the amnesiac into her care, naming him Haku. As their journey takes them across the land, Haku will (reluctantly) encounter colorful characters (yes, that means more animal people), build deep relationships, battle ruthless enemies, and find himself inexorably dragged into the political machinations of the mighty nation of Yamato.

Resident Evil Movie Franchise Set for a Reboot
May 22, 2017 - 12:49 PM - by Emabulator

Variety has the story.

The “Resident Evil” movie franchise has not ended after all.

Details such as the reboot director, stars, and how the reboot would fit into the franchise narrative are being kept under wraps. But Martin Moszkowicz, chairman of the board at Constantin Film, did confirm to Variety at the Cannes Film Festival that a reboot is in development at the giant German production company, which owns rights to the franchise and has produced all of its installments.

The franchise was set to end with this year’s “Resident Evil: The Final Chapter,” which grossed $312 million worldwide after its January release, including an eye-popping $160 million in China alone. Sony helped sow the seeds of success by securing a release for “Resident Evil: Afterlife” and “Resident Evil: Extinction” in China.

Based on the Capcom video game, the series launched in 2002 with Paul W.S. Anderson directing, and Anderson, Jeremy Bolt, Bernd Eichinger, and Samuel Hadida producing the first of a six-movie series. The “Resident Evil” movie franchise has earned $1.2 billion worldwide to date, making it Europe’s most successful independent horror-genre movie franchise in history and the highest-grossing film series to be based on a video game.

Uncharted Movie Now A Prequel, Will Star Young Spider-Man Actor Tom Holland
May 22, 2017 - 12:35 PM - by Emabulator

GameSpot has the story.

Sony Pictures has decided on a new direction for its film adaptation of the Uncharted series. Rather than casting someone as the Nathan Drake we've become accustomed to seeing in the games, it's going back in time.

According to Deadline, Sony has decided to turn its Uncharted movie into a prequel. It will feature the 20-year-old Tom Holland--the current big-screen Spider-Man--in the role of Drake, with Shawn Levy (Real Steel, Night at the Museum) directing. Inspiration was drawn from a sequence in Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, which revealed the first encounter between Drake and his longtime buddy, Victor Sullivan. A script has not yet been written for this new concept, and there's no word on who will pen it.

Universal has set a date for Bride of Frankenstein, and debuted the first photo of the stars it has assembled for its shared universe, the newly titled Dark Universe.

Bride of Frankenstein, from director Bill Condon and screenwriter David Koepp, will open Feb. 14, 2019. In a statement, Universal chairman Donna Langley described the project as the "story of a very modern woman in a very classic tale." Universal said casting for the lead character, first played by Elsa Lanchester in the 1935 classic, will be announced soon.

The studio is pushing ahead with its cinematic monsters universe as it readies to release The Mummy in theaters June 9th. The reboot stars Tom Cruise, Russell Crowe and Sofia Boutella. It is directed by Alex Kurtzman.

Assembled in the first-look photo of the Dark Universe stars are Johnny Depp (The Invisible Man), Javier Bardem (Frankenstein’s Monster), Cruise (Nick Morton), Crowe (Dr. Jekyll) and Boutella (The Mummy).

CliffyB’s LawBreakers Coming to PS4 #Lawbreakers
May 22, 2017 - 10:33 AM - by Evil Avatar

LawBreakers’ Gravity-Defying-Combat coming to PlayStation 4

PlayStation 4 gamers will be able to beat gravity into submission and compete in gravity-defying competition in LawBreakers, the new multiplayer first-person shooter (FPS) from renowned game designer CliffyB and Boss Key Productions.

LawBreakers will be enhanced for PS4 Pro and promises to challenge even the best players to bring their skills, get off the ground and deliver death from every angle as they experience thrilling fast-paced, omni-directional gunplay with innovative movement systems and combat abilities.

From the mind of Bleszinski, LawBreakers is set in a brand new futuristic world where the laws of gravity have been turned upside down. A war between the Law and the Breakers rages across a variety of iconic locations such as the boiling oceans of the Santa Monica coastline to the gravity-ravaged Grand Canyon and beyond.

Today Nexon also revealed its business model for the game which sees the base game starting at just $29.99. In addition, the company confirmed that there will be no season pass-style program and that all future content updates will be free. Also, there are no “pay-to-win” mechanics in the game, just a robust offering of cosmetics for players to earn via the game’s Stash-Box system.

“With LawBreakers, we wanted to honor the skill-based FPS games of yesteryear, all while embracing the new and pushing the genre in our own unique way,” said Bleszinski. “We found that messing with gravity, and having it mess with the player, adds a dynamic vertical element that will challenge players of all skill levels to go above their limits. Add in a variety of character role play-styles that go beyond the basic ‘tank, sniper and medic,’ a price point that we feel is fair to the player and the fact that it’s just damn fun to play - we’re confident LawBreakers will be one of the best valued and most challenging FPS games on PC or console.”

"We're thrilled to be partnering with CliffyB and his team to bring such a unique and challenging combat experience to PS4,” said Owen Mahoney, President and CEO, NEXON Co., Ltd. “This marks a major milestone for Nexon as we launch onto a home videogame console for the first time in the company's history."

The PS4 version of LawBreakers will make its debut at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles, June 13-15, and attendees will be among the first to experience its unique brand of gravity-defying combat.

Microsoft Clarifies Xbox Scorpio Frame Rate/Fidelity Stance
May 21, 2017 - 4:44 PM - by Emabulator

GameSpot has the story.

Microsoft has clarified another detail about the upcoming Project Scorpio console.

Xbox engineering lead Mike Ybarra confirmed that Microsoft will not force developers to ensure there is frame rate parity between Scorpio and Xbox One games. Responding to someone on Twitter who said this would be the case, Ybarra stressed that no such mandate is in place. "No, there isn't," he said to the suggestion that there is a requirement that a game's Xbox One frame rate is the same for its Scorpio version. "This is up to the developer to choose, for their games, what they want to do."

In another tweet, Ybarra laid out Microsoft's policy on this even more clearly and directly: "Developers are free to choose how they use the power of Project Scorpio for games. We have no requirements limiting framerate or fidelity," he said.

Next Terminator Movie Will Happen, Arnold Schwarzenegger Says
May 21, 2017 - 11:56 AM - by Emabulator

When asked about the next Terminator film Arnold Schwarzenegger said "it is back." GameSpot has the story.

There has been much uncertainty about the future of the Terminator franchise, following the commercial disappointment of 2015's Terminator: Genisys. Now original star Arnold Schwarzenegger has weighed in on the subject, and has stated that the series will continue.

Speaking to Screen Daily from the Cannes Film Festival, Schwarzenegger confirmed that he had met with James Cameron, who created the series and directed the first two movies. "It is back," he said. "It is moving forward. [Cameron] has some good ideas of how to continue with the franchise. I will be in the movie."

The rights to the entire franchise revert back to Cameron in 2019, and Schwarzenegger's comments imply that the director will become involved in its future direction.

However, Cameron is about to start production on the Avatar sequels, so it is highly unlikely he will direct another Terminator. Earlier this year, was rumoured that Deadpool director Tim Miller was in the running to helm the next Terminator film, but there has been no further news about this.

Nintendo Switch Helps U.S. Games Market to 10% Gain
May 20, 2017 - 10:56 AM - by Emabulator

MCV has the story.

Sales of the Nintendo Switch have remained strong for a second month in the US, driving up the annual comparisons in NPD's monthly report.

The overall market is up ten per cent at $636m. Hardware was up 37 per cent at $195m, with software up six per cent at $304m and accessories up four per cent at $126m.

The numbers represent the highest April hardware sales since April 2011.

“[It's] the first time the industry has experienced two months of consecutive growth since November 2015,” NPD analyst Mat Piscatella said. “The Nintendo Switch led hardware sales, while Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Persona 5, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, drove software sales.

“Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was the month’s top-selling title. As a property, Mario Kart is the all-time best-selling Racing franchise in the US. Persona 5 experienced the strongest debut month for any title in Persona franchise history, with packaged dollar sales five times that of the previous best-selling debut, Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4.

“Year to date, the top two games in dollar sales are both published by Ubisoft: Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands, the best-selling game of the year through April; and For Honor, which charted at No.2 through April.

Destiny 2 PC will not release at the same time as consoles!
May 18, 2017 - 4:05 PM - by Julio

Destiny 2 has been scheduled for release on September 8—but, as it turns out, that is only for the console versions of the game. The PC launch date, as Destiny 2 director Luke Smith told us at today's reveal event, hasn't actually been set.

"We're not committed to a PC date yet, but at Bungie we're totally committed to making a PC build as great as we can," Smith said. "Our partnership with Blizzard and being on Battle.net, we want to make sure that this version of the game has the time it needs to bake in the oven so it's a delicious piece of bread when it comes out."

Smith added he couldn't comment on how much of a delay the PC version would suffer, but said Bungie would try to provide a date "in the coming weeks."

Destiny 2 PC will be Exclusive to Battle.net
May 18, 2017 - 11:19 AM - by Julio

The Verge has the story.

In a surprising announcement at today’s Destiny 2 event, Bungie revealed that the PC version of the Destiny sequel will be exclusively available on Blizzard’s Battle.net platform.

Battle.net will be used to both purchase Destiny 2 as well as for online gameplay, making Destiny 2 the first non-Blizzard developed game to use the system (which also handles the storefront and online components of Starcraft, World of Warcraft, Diablo, Overwatch, Heroes of the Storm, and Hearthstone.) It’s good news for Destiny, given that Battle.net is historically reliable when it comes to online gameplay, and also means that Destiny 2 will be able to take advantage of Battle.net’s robust player community. Bungie however, will still be in charge of maintaining Destiny 2’s servers.
I hope this means dedicated servers... at least voice chat will be somewhat easier since it's integrated into the games.

Vive Unveils New Wireless, Standalone VR Headset
May 17, 2017 - 12:39 PM - by Emabulator

GameSpot has the story.

As revealed today at the Google I/O conference, Google has announced a new Vive headset that uses Daydream, Google's VR platform that launched last year. It's a standalone headset, meaning you don't have to connect it to a PC or any other device, which comes with the added benefit of being wireless.

"Everything you need for the best portable VR is built right into the headset," a post on the Vive blog explains. It adds, "Vive's standalone VR headset will provide a deeper and more immersive portable VR experience than ever before."

The headset uses WorldSense, which Google says allows for "precise movement tracking. Lean, dodge, and duck as you wish."

Details are still light, with more to be announced "soon." The blog post claims, "[R]est assured, it will be simple, easy-to-use and with no cables to connect. Just pick it up, put it on and be fully immersed in your new reality."

Quake Champions – Introducing Duel Mode
May 17, 2017 - 11:04 AM - by Evil Avatar

Quake Champions is a frenetic test of skill and the ultimate competitive game. The purest form of this proving ground is Duel mode, a 1-v-1 showdown to decide who is best, once-and-for-all. Check out the video showcasing Quake Champions’ new Duel mode here.

Duel mode introduces an additional layer of strategy to Quake Champions, incorporating multiple Champions with differing Abilities. To start, players will select three Champions in a snake-style draft before heading to the Arenas. In choosing their roster, players will have to consider which Champions are better suited to their unique playstyle and which are effective counters to their opponents’ choices.

Taking a cue from fighting games, Duel is played as a best-of-three match. There are three total rounds, and in each round, a player has to defeat all three of the opponent’s Champions. When a player is fragged, they will respawn as another of their chosen Champions. When one player has eliminated all three of the opposing Champions, a winner for that round is declared.

Reminder: The Quake Champions Large Scale Test Tech is now live and will run until May 21. The Tech Test is welcoming all players and includes Duel mode as well as the new team-based competitive mode, Sacrifice. Players who want to join in the fragfest can head to Quake.com to sign up and receive a key.

Ubisoft and South Park Digital Studios Will Release South Park: The Fractured but Whole on October 17th 2017

Today, Ubisoft and South Park Digital Studios announced that South Park: The Fractured But Whole will be available on October 17th 2017. From the creators of South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, and developed by Ubisoft San Francisco, The Fractured But Whole is an outrageous sequel to 2014’s award-winning title, South Park: The Stick of Truth and will release on Xbox One, PlayStation4 computer entertainment system and Windows PC.

With crime on the rise in South Park, the streets have never been more dangerous. As the sun sets on the quiet Colorado town, havoc and chaos unleash a reign of terror and the seedy underbelly of the city comes alive. The town needs new heroes to rise! Eric Cartman seizes the opportunity to save the town and create the best superhero franchise ever, his own Coon & Friends with himself as the leader, The Coon.

Every superhero has an origin, and Coon & Friends are no different. Continuing in their role as the New Kid, players will discover their backstory, assemble their unique costumes, and harness their fart-based powers from numerous hero classes to create their own original hero. An all-new combat system offers unique opportunities to master space and time while on the battlefield, and a revamped looting and crafting system gives players the freedom to craft their own equipment to aid them in battle.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole will be available in four editions: Standard, Gold, Steelbook Gold and Collector’s. Anyone who purchases South Park: The Fractured But Whole will receive South Park: The Stick of Truth for free. If you pre-purchase the game at select partners, you can start playing The Stick of Truth immediately.

All pre-orders will also receive an exclusive in-game assistant, Towelie: Your Gaming Bud. The streets of South Park aren’t as safe as they used to be, and even the most seasoned South Park veteran will need help. Towelie: Your Gaming Bud provides helpful and hilarious advice and commentary to players at key locations throughout the game.

Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow Reveals New Original Animation and Gameplay Details

Jam City, via its game studio TinyCo, FoxNext Games, and Matt Groening today released a new fully-animated teaser trailer for Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow, a new game coming soon to mobile devices. Created in partnership with Futurama creator and Executive Producer Matt Groening and his Curiosity Company, along with Executive Producer David X. Cohen, original Futurama writers, and Rough Draft Studios, the teaser is the first new animation from the Futurama universe since the show’s original TV run ended in 2013. Jam City is working with the writers, animators, and cast to produce even more original animation that will have fans waving their tentacles in the air.

“I’m proud to say that Futurama lives! In mobile-video-game teaser trailer form, anyway,” said Matt Groening, creator of Futurama and The Simpsons. “If you squint, it's kind of like a little episode!”

“Working on this new Futurama animation has been a thrilling adventure,” said David X. Cohen. “I finally understand how Neil Armstrong must have felt when he first landed on the lunar surface, watched some funny cartoons on the control screen, and did whatever else was on his schedule that day.”

Jam City also released more details about gameplay itself. Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow will blend simulation, combat, galactic exploration, and choose-your-own-adventure mechanics together to bring the escapades of the Planet Express crew to life. The game features two main settings: New New York, which focuses on simulation and character progression gameplay, and Space Adventures, in which players will explore and battle their way through planets, nebulas, and other weird stuff across the Futurama universe.

In New New York, players will focus on rescuing characters, collecting special items and materials, expanding their characters’ capabilities by leveling them up and crafting ability-defining character outfits, and tackling story-driven quests. Events that occur in New New York will often move the game’s overarching narrative forward, by allowing players to assemble a crew of their favorite Futurama characters and take to the stars for Space Adventures. While traversing the depths of space, players will fight alien enemies in retro arcade-style combat, rendered in beautiful 16-bit graphics, and explore strange lands in which their choices determine their fate.

“The Futurama universe is chock-full of exotic planets inhabited by wacky creatures (and Smizmars),” said Josh Yguado, Co-Founder, President and COO of Jam City. “Whether you’re counseling an alien overlord on Omicron Persei 8 or battling rogue robots on the streets of Chapek 9, exploring this crazy universe and interacting with its denizens will be a blast.”

Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow is coming soon to mobile devices via the App Store, Google Play, and the Amazon Appstore. More information on the game will be released in the near future. For more details on Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow as they are revealed, and to connect with Futurama fans who will help create and play the game, please visit: fb.com/playfuturama, twitter.com/playfuturama, and Jam City.com.

Additionally, pre-register on Google Play or visit youwillplayfuturama.com to be notified when the game is released.

Nintendo Switch Leads US Hardware Sales Again In April
May 17, 2017 - 9:53 AM - by Emabulator

GameSpot has the story.

Ahead of tomorrow's release of the NPD Group sales report for April in the US, Nintendo has shared some of the big news regarding Switch and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

Citing NPD data, Nintendo said that Switch sales topped 280,000 units in the US during April, making it the month's No. 1 system. It's the second month in a row that's been the case, as it was also the top seller during its debut month of March. Sales would likely be even higher if Switch weren't facing supply issues, which GameStop has previously said may last for the entire year.

Nintendo also noted that the 3DS family of systems combined to sell more than 68,000 units during the same span. The combined Switch and 3DS sales of 348,000-plus "make up almost half of all hardware sales across all dedicated video game systems," according to NPD data.

On the software side, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was the month's top-selling game, with over 460,000 physical copies sold. Bear in mind, the game only launched on April 28, and the NPD's report for April only tracked sales through April 29. Combined with digital sales, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe topped 550,000 units sold.
