Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will be released for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC however the last generation versions are not being developed by Sledgehammer Games.

As reported by Videogamer, these versions will be developed by a different studio.

Elder Scrolls online – Pre Order Now Bonus

The Elder Scrolls Online (released 4th April) is set roughly 1,000 years before the events in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and the coming of the Dragonborn, and just before the rise of Tiber Septim, the first Emperor of Tamriel. Three Alliances have emerged across the continent, each struggling for supremacy over the land. As these great powers battle one another for control of the Imperial City – and with it all of Tamriel – darker forces are moving to destroy the world.

The Elder Scrolls Online is the latest chapter of the award-winning franchise and will bring the legendary experience online for the first time. Whether you play with your friends or adventure alone, the game’s combat system allows you to focus on action and tactics, not the UI. Use any weapon or armor at any time and customize your abilities to play the way you want as you uncover the mysteries of Tamriel and seek heroic quests on your own terms. Explore the far reaches of Skyrim, the mysterious lands of Morrowind, the sprawling metropolis of Daggerfall and beyond.

FIFA 14 detailed, first screens. Pre Order now @ Video Game Box

FIFA 14 detailed, first screens. Pre Order now @ Video Game Box

EA has at last announced FIFA 14 for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 and we have all the details, as well as the first screens.

The publisher says that “innovations to the franchise’s gameplay will make FIFA 14 the complete matchday experience, introducing features that inspire fans to build play through midfield, dictate the tempo of a match and create rewarding opportunities.”

One of the main new features in FIFA 14 called Pure Shot, which EA says “transforms” finishing so players have the intelligence to adjust their stride and approach angle to find the best position for hitting the back of the net. “Well-hit balls feel more exhilarating and rewarding,” says EA.

New shot types include pure strikes, as well as off-balance and rushed shots. Plus, Real Ball Physics now determines the trajectories of balls, enabling players to kick the ball with force from distance, drill low rising shots with accuracy, and blast dipping or turbulent shots. Meanwhile, EA says that a brand-new ball physics system will “transform shooting”, making every shot attempt feel real, and “when players connect with the perfect strike, feel exhilarating.”

“FIFA 14 will play the way great football matches are contested with build up through midfield, tension throughout the match as chances are created, and incredible finishing,” said David Rutter, Executive Producer for FIFA 14. “Opportunities in FIFA 14 will be rewarding and great goals will look stunning.”

Other new features include Protect The Ball, which will enable players to fend-off and block defenders from the ball while dribbling at any speed, or out-muscle opponents for position before receiving the pass, then turn defenders to carve out opportunities. Teammate Intelligence has also been improved on both sides of the ball. New decision-making logic delivers tighter, smarter marking and improved run tracking where defenders recognize opportunities to provide support and win back possession, while attacking players have new ways to outsmart their opponents by creating space for themselves, running along the backline and checking their pace. Major changes to ball control add new tools to win the midfield battles. Sprint Dribble Turns enable players to turn in every direction at sprint speed while preserving momentum, delivering the control and confidence to take on defenders one-on-one. Variable Dribble Touches introduces variety on touches when sprinting. Skilled players will have better touch and more control when sprinting with the ball.

In addition and as seen in some of the screens below, FIFA 14 is introducing bug changes to Career Mode. The new Global Scouting Network allows players to develop and refine a scouting network and search for talent year-round. Scouts can evaluate footballers all over the world to uncover the attributes and traits of every player in the game, in preparation for the transfer windows. Plus there is also a new, redesigned hub which will house the entire career mode.

Other services will also make a return, such as EA SPORTS Football Club, while there will also be changes to FIFA Ultimate Team, a new online Mode that will encourage social competition, multiple new features and more than 500 officially licensed clubs.

EA says that ‘Additional Platforms’ will be revealed in the months ahead.

The game is currently scheduled for ‘Autumn 2013’.

Here’s an overview of the Key Features (Via EA press release):

Pure Shot – Shooting has been transformed. Players have the intelligence to adjust their stride and approach angle to find the best position for hitting the back of the net. Well-hit balls feel satisfying and goals are rewarding. As well as quality strikes, players can now shoot while off balance or rushed.
Real Ball Physics – Strike the ball with more force and finesse. Realistic ball physics now determines the trajectories of balls in game, enabling players to strike the ball with force from distance, drill low rising shots with accuracy, and blast dipping or swerving shots, just like real footballers.
Protect The Ball – Dominate midfield and dictate the tempo of a match. Fend-off and block defenders from the ball while dribbling at any speed. Protect the ball from opponents to control play through midfield and dictate the pace of the match. Plus, out-muscle opponents for position before receiving the ball, then turn defenders to carve out opportunities.
Teammate Intelligence – Better decision-making delivers tighter, smarter marking and improved run tracking. Defenders recognize opportunities to provide support and win back possession. Attacking players have new ways to outsmart their opponents and break down tighter, more intelligent defences by creating space for themselves, running along the backline and checking their pace.
Sprint Dribble Turns – Utilize quick, explosive cuts and turns to beat defenders one-on-one while sprinting with the ball. Players can move in any direction, preserving their natural momentum and maintaining possession of the ball.
Variable Dribble Touches – The First Touch Control of dribbling varies a player’s touch when dribbling with pace. Skilled players have the touch and control to stand out while less skilled players will experience fewer perfect touches and more uncertainty dribbling, creating opportunities for defenders to win back possession, and placing emphasis on building play through midfield.
2nd Chance Tackles – The tackling zone has been extended to enable defenders to combine different types of tackles, recover from missed tackles quickly, and have a second chance to compete for the ball in any tackling situation.
Curling Lofted Through Balls – Players have the ability to curl the ball around opponents to deliver precision passes to teammates or send the ball into space.
Skill Games – A?competitive practice mode that enable players to learn or master the fundamental skills necessary to compete at FIFA 14. Become a better player, faster, no matter what your skill level, competing against yourself or friends in all-new mini-games.
Career Mode – Search for talent year-round with the new Global Scouting Network that brings the world of professional scouting to life. Develop and refine your own scouting network. Evaluate footballers to uncover the attributes of players who could bolster your squad during the transfer windows. A new hub delivers easy navigation, fewer interruptions and live scouting reports.
Complete Authenticity – All the authenticity EA SPORTS is known for with officially licensed clubs, leagues and more than 15,000 players.

Maxis: Critics right to slate poor SimCity launch

Maxis General Manager Lucy Bradshaw has said in an internal memo that critics are right to slate SimCity due to it’s launch problems, however she still feels that the team has done a fantastic job with the game, which hopefully players will soon see for themselves.

“The rollout in North America has been challenging,” wrote Bradshaw in the memo which was acquired by Polygon. “It’s also now evident that players across Europe and Asia are experiencing the same frustration.

“I’d like to say that it’s not fair that the game score shouldn’t be punished for a server problem. But it is fair. SimCity is an online game and critics and consumers have every right to expect a smooth experience from beginning to end.

“I and the Maxis team take full responsibility to deliver on our promise.”

It seems that at the moment EA’s decision to make this game online only has backfired, although to be fair neither me nor Colin have experienced any issues with the game as of yet.
