Assassin's Creed: Unity Delayed To November 11th - briefly
(hx) 05:34 AM EDT - Aug,29 2014 - Post a comment
Assassin's Creed Unity will launch on November 11 in North America and on November 13 in Europe, a delay from the previously announced release date of October 28 in the US. Ubisoft says the extra two weeks will be spent bringing the game up to fans' and the team's expectations.
This being a fully next-gen game, it requires a lot of work, a lot of production, and a lot of learning, It's always hard to be precise and to quantify exactly how much work is involved. So as we get close to the finish we often realize we’re near the target but we're not quite there yet

Metro Redux - First Update Adds Volumetric Lights - patch
(hx) 05:10 AM EDT - Aug,29 2014 - Post a comment
4A Games and Deep Silver released a 1.2GB patch for the PC version of Metro: Redux that adds Volumetric Lights. Volumetric Lights gives a game the ominous light effect which makes the visuals much more lively. Volumetric lights are bright rays of light that adds life to the entire light effects of any any game. Still, this effect is not limited to sun's rays as all other light sources can cast such rays, and Metro 2033 had lots of them. This first update brings some of them back to Metro: Redux, though there are still places in which volumetric lights have not been added/used. Do note also that this graphical feature is exclusive to the PC version as both the Xbox One and the PS4 versions lack it.

The Creatures (Kootra) got SWAT Raided (SWATTED) - briefly

This practice - called "swatting" - is shockingly common, and usually done by untraceable means. You'd think SWAT members would catch on by now that if the person they're sent to arrest is playing Counter-Strike, it was probably a false tip.

Dragon Age: Inquisition - MP Gameplay Trailer - movie
(hx) 02:10 PM EDT - Aug,28 2014 - Post a comment
Dragon Age: Inquisition releases on November 21, 2014.



In related news, PC Gamer has posted a hands-on preview of the game. Here's a bit:
"Big levels obviously can't narrate themselves; that's impossible. The scope of that is too big. They need to give the player opportunities to tell their own stories and ultimately that's what comes from exploring this open-world gameplay." I get a feel for what Darrah's talking about in an area called the Dales Highlands, a zone that ends up being my favorite in Inquisition. The intro to the Dales is incredibly light. An arcane, malicious blizzard has grasped the area's rough, typically-thawed cliffs, icing the river that nearby Sarhnia depends on for food and trade. What I notice throughout this area, and appreciate, is the lack of heavy-handed exposition about who, what, where, and why: the theme of the Highlands, as I discover simply by fighting through it, is driving out an invader and advancing the frontline.

The Red Templars (a faction of rebel, overzealous Templars) are to blame for the magic winter, and I see their signature pocking the cliffs as I climb: red lyrium. This potent, dangerous anti-magic substance is the source of the corruption that's tainted these Templars, and huge crystalline shards of it are piercing the Highlands. I cleave and shield-bash through a fourth pack of the misguided knights in an ice tunnel; the whole screen is a glow of blue light filtered through pristine ice and unnatural, saturated red emanating from the lyrium. These colors tell the story as well as any dialogue.

Further up, I fight a Red Templar Behemoth, less a soldier and more a 15-foot-tall, faceless lump of bipedal lyrium. For the first time I have to toggle-on Dragon Age's tactical camera, renovated for Inquisition, to kite the monster and deliberately spend my party's abilities. It's here that I realize how comfortable Inquisition feels when played as a real-time action-RPG; even more than it did in DA2. Broadly, the combat isn't as demanding as a conventional action game—there's auto-attack—but it also never drifts into, say, over-generous hit detection or the disconnected ‘combat dancing' of some MMOs.

"We're going for a hybrid of Origins and Dragon Age 2 stuff," Dragon Age creative director Mike Laidlaw says of the combat. "We want the responsiveness of DA2, that's a biggie, but the influences of Origins are undeniable. We did want to find that balance." Although I played Inquisition on PC, unfortunately I wasn't able to do so on a mouse and keyboard. Still, it was strangely reassuring how well the tactical approach to combat handled on a controller, of all things. Plotting commands was simple, clean, and helped by an interface that mostly mirrors what we had in Origins. Unlike that game, though, Inquisition uses highlights and color to make that visual information more interesting and readable. The camera behaved well throughout. Automated AI settings are preserved, too, like how much mana a mage should keep in reserve, or at what HP threshold a character should down a potion.

Ubisoft Is Aiming At 60FPS For PC In The Crew - briefly
(hx) 03:25 PM EDT - Aug,27 2014 - Post a comment / read (5)
Yesterday, I informed you about the 30FPS lock that is currently present on The Crew's PC beta build. While Ubi-Valentin (Ubisoft's community manager) said that the team aims for 1080p and 30fps on all platforms (PC, Xbox One and PS4), Natchai_Ubisoft (another community manager at Ubisoft) claimed that the team is actually targeting 60FPS on the PC.
The reason you could alter the FPS in the config file is because our team is actually working on getting 60FPS for PC. The reason why it hasn't been communicated before this is because we didn’t want to make a promise we couldn't deliver on.
But read this correctly:


We are aiming at a 60 FPS on PC for the launch of the game and the actual Beta doesn't represent the final game

So, I hope that helps?
The Crew will hit the PC on November 11th!
