    Halo 2 had the best multiplayer, hopefully the remaster will be great.

    I've got some more news and updates. Thankfully this post will be a lot shorter than my last one, which managed to exceed the forums character limit :smiley-laughing002:


    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    WWE 2K15
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The full roster for WWE 2K15 has been announced . The game contains 56 unique characters, and two alternate versions of Hulk Hogan and Sting (although some places are reporting that 20+ characters are still to be announced).


    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Rise of the Tomb Raider
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The confusion regarding the exclusivity deal with Microsoft continues, with Phil Spencer (head of Microsoft's Xbox division) once again seemingly implying MS are more involved with the development of the game than previously implied.

    Kotaku have spoken to Spencer regarding the deal, and this was his initial response (the full article can be read here)

    However, he later commented on the deal stating

    This has led to the belief that the deal may be similar to that of Dead Rising 3. Capcom had no plans for a DR3 until MS offered to help fund the development, although the game was later made available on PC.

    Previously Square Enix (the publishers of Tomb Raider) had expressed their disappointment in the previous Tomb Raider game for not reaching certain sales targets (although the game did eventually reach and exceed their targets). Microsoft investing in the development may reduce the total amount SE themselves have to invest in development, although profits would obviously need to be spilt.


    I would be very surprised personally if the game never turns up on PS4. When you look at the (rumoured) numbers the game sold on PS3/4, its pretty much equal to or greater than the Xbox. Add in the fact that it took them releasing the game of five unique platforms to meet their sales targets, it would be a pretty strange decision.


    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Silent Hills
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hideo Kojima has revealed a little more about the recently announced Silent Hills game (which is apparently still very early in development).

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Assassins Creed: Unity
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Gameinfomer have a new article on their site detailing the character Elise, who's apparently both Arno's love interest and a Templar.

    There was also a character trailer for her, that I think I forgot to post at the time.

    Here's an extract from the Gameinformer article (which can be read in full here)

    Does anyone have any idea idea what the trade in value of an 80GB fat PS3 would be in a game shop?

    Some more news, updates and gameplay videos. Coincidentally after Captain Mjällby mentioning it, 343 have released a video showing an hour of Halo 2 Anniversary multiplayer.

    Bloodborne
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    The Bloodborne demo shown to journalists at Gamescom, has now been posted on the Playstation channel.

    The Mother Base multiplayer mode was revealed at Gamescom, and like Bloodborne the video has now been posted online.

    The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    A video showcasing 35 minutes of the Witcher 3 has been released. It's supposedly a mixture of some old and new footage.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The Evil Within
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Bethesda have released an hour long video showing some gameplay of The Evil Within.

    From what I've read online, it seems to be a lot more action focused than survival horror. A lot of the previews that I've seen (even before this video) have been fairly negative.

    Resident Evil: Revelations 2
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    A sequel to Resident Evil: Revelations (which was originally a 3DS game before being ported to consoles and PC) has seemingly been leaked by Xbox.com

    A listing for a Resident Evil: Revelations 2 was seen on the site, alongside an image of what appears to be the box art and a piece of concept art. All have since been removed.

    Far Cry 4
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    A new developer diary for Far Cry 4 has been released. This one focuses on the open world and co-op.

    Apparently story missions are disabled during co-op sessions, but are instead replaced with more co-op orientated content.

    Alone in the Dark & Haunted House
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Atari have announced that both the Alone in the Dark & Haunted House series will be getting new entries. Both games are said to be reboots



    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Sony
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Eurogamer have a pretty good interview with Shuhei Yoshida (head of Sony Worldwide Studios) on their website. It covers a few different topics including the PS4 sales, upcoming games, Tomb Raider and EA Access.

    Here's a couple of extracts


    I agree with what he's saying about EA Access. It's definitely a good deal, but depending on its success there's nothing stopping Activision, Ubisoft etc following suit.

    Long term it might end up having an impact on the games that Plus and Games on Gold offer. On the other hand I suppose it allows people to get games that they prefer rather than the random nature of Sony or Microsoft's offerings.


    Here's the link for the full interview for anyone who wants to read it.




    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Microsoft
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Phil Spencer, head of Microsoft's Xbox division has been interviewed by CVG. He discusses the Tomb Raider deal, EA Access, future plans for the one amongst other things.

    One of the more interesting parts of the interview was his response regarding the future of Rare (the studio who developed Goldeneye, the original Killer Instinct games, Conkers Bad Fur Day, Banjo Kazooie and many more).

    Rare have mainly been working on the Kinect in recent times, developing Kinect Sports 1 & 2. The latter game sold relatively poorly by all accounts, and with MS seemingly moving away from the Kinect it leaves the studios future somewhat uncertain. It is important to remember though that the majority of the original staff of Rare no longer work at the studio.


    The full interview can be read here.


    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Nintendo/Ubisoft/Activison
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    • Yves Guillemot (Ubisoft CEO) has said that Watch Dogs will be the last 'mature' game that the company will release on the Wii U. In an interview with Gameimformer Guillemot said Nintendo customers do not buy games like Assassins Creed, preferring ones such as Just Dance (the interview can be read in full here)


    • Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will not be released on Wii U

    Eden Hazard will feature alongside Messi on the cover of FIFA 15.

    It was previously announced that Clint Dempsey will be featured on the North American cover. However, due to the Seattle Sounders being sponsored by Xbox, the PlayStation and Xbox versions will have alternate covers.

    For anyone curious, here's who appears alongside Messi on the covers in different countries/regions

    The Vanishing of Ethan Carter
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The horror/murder mystery game that was shown at Sony's Gamescom conference, now has a release date (on PC at least).

    The game will be released on September 25th on Steam and GOG, and on PS4 some time next year.

    Here's a brief summary of the game courtesy of Destructoid


    Here's the video in question, which is a gameplay demo narrated by one of the developers.

    I think I posted the reveal trailer already, but here it is for anyone who hasn't seen it.

    Silent Hills
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Not so much news, but something a little funny/interesting.

    Hideo Kojima has explained the story behind the made up 7780's studio, who were attributed to the development of P.T. demo (prior to the announcement that it was actually a Silent Hill/Kojima game).

    Middle Earth: Shadows of Mordor
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    IGN sat down with the developers to stream an hour's worth of gameplay footage, and just generally discuss the game.

    [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FzjQmbHWUCY[/ame]



    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Rise of the Tomb Raider
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Crystal Dynamics have posted a FAQ on their Tomb Raider Tumblr page (not sure why they chose to post it there of all places), which discusses the exclusivity deal.




    I don't see how mentioning that the game is only a timed exclusive is going to confuse people.

    When you watch Sony's conferences they always just say "Launching first on PS3/PS4/PlayStation consoles".




    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Disney Infinity 2.0
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I know this probably isn't a game that really interests the majority of people on here, but just in case anyone has children, nieces/nephews, etc.

    There's a new trailer, and a piece of news.


    [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=26eN6jxdK5g[/ame]



    Disney have also announced that the original Disney Infinity will be available as a free download on the Wii U.

    Since the sequel won't be coming to the Wii, the company decided as a show of good will, to allow people the opportunity to play the game on a platform where the sequel is available (although people still need to buy the figures and docking station to be able to actually play the game).
