Yesterday Eurogamer reported that Bioware senior character artist Furio Tedeschi posted a picture of the new armour for Mass Effect: Andromeda‘s lead character the Pathfinder. The high-resolution image shows the male character model, including the iconic N7 logos and a very Mass Effect-esque silhouette. The post on Zbrush Central read “our Pathfinder character model at Bioware Montreal…. for Mass Effect Andromeda – Modeled By Herbert Lowis [another Bioware artist]” It is an absolute treat for Mass Effect fans, who have been starved for details until now.
Anyway, the images below are from his forum post. However, you can see more of the model, [...]
Unravel by Coldwood Interactive was a huge surprise for me. While the hype was certainly a contributing factor, what grabbed me and led me to download the EA Access 10 hour trial was the simplistic beauty I had seen in gameplay trailers. If you take one thing away from this first impression, let it be that this game is gorgeous. Strangely, I found myself absorbed by Unravel to a similar degree as full priced triple-A titles, despite stylized sidescrollers being one of my least played genres.
For the trial (and I imagine the full version of the game), you start out watching an extended version of the story trailer cutscene before being introduced to Yarny, an adorable [...]
For those who are into sports that involve punching people in the face, this past weekend was brilliant. We had the climactic UFC 194, in which Connor McGregor beat Jose Aldo in a record breaking 13 seconds. Over in my homeland of England, we had a great weekend of Boxing, with two different British Champions winning. It is a brilliant era for contact sports, with stars like Connor McGregor, Ronda Rousey, Floyd Mayweather and Tyson Fury dominating headlines and popular culture. It is no surprise that the UFC games are incredibly popular, with UFC 2 set to release early next year. I’ve spent quite a lot of time playing UFC recently, and it got me wondering, where is Fight [...]
To say I was keen on playing the Star Wars Battlefront Beta would be an understatement, I’ve been a huge Star Wars fan since I was a kid. I had it forced upon me as a child and then went on to grow a greater appreciation of it during my mid to late teens. I’ve played countless game tie-ins with KOTOR being my favourite and the original Battlefront games coming in a close second. I approached the beta with a lot of scepticism, the same scepticism I am holding for The Force Awakens when it releases later in the year. For the most part, my cynicism was unneeded as the Battlefront Beta is awesome, but it isn’t without its problems.
The first thing that [...]
New information has been revealed for Need for Speed at EA’s press conference at E3 2015, including a finalized release date of November 3, 2015.
Ghost Games has revealed more details behind the upcoming installment in the Need for Speed franchise. The game will be set in an open world that will apparently be twice as large as the one from Need for Speed Rivals. Much of the world will reportedly be in an urban setting, with some of the routes leading to more mountainous roads with less contact to human civilization.
In addition, EA has shown off pre-Alpha footage of the game. A major update to the graphics engine and to the design complements the customization [...]
EA published the first of four developer diaries on GAME’s Youtube channel yesterday, giving a brief look at the development of the recently announced Star Wars Battlefront title.
Developers reveal in the video that the use of sound effects from the original films, thanks to their partnership with Lucasfilm, adds a level of authenticity to the game that is unprecedented. DICE has access to all the original materials and sets from the original films as well as the environments used to shoot the original trilogy. The developers claim that this will allow them to bring an unprecedented amount of detail to the game, from the design of storm trooper armor to the vehicles [...]
Today EA Sports announced that the mobile version of their popular UFC fighting game franchise would be available to download for free from both the App Store and Google Play Store. The game was developed in conjunction with EA Canada, the developers of the console version of the game, and features highly-detailed HD graphics. Players will also find that the mobile edition of UFC does not feature the usual time restriction model used in many mobile games, and thus will let them fight it out with over 70 of the greats of the sport as often as they wish, as they climb their way to the top of the UFC ranking. In addition, there will also be live events that allow mobile UFC players to [...]
