Assassin's Creed III First Ever Gameplay Footage Released

A couple of days after Ubisoft started a campaign to get 1,776,000 posts, tweets and shares about Assassin's Creed III to unlock the World Gameplay Premiere, the challenge has been successful.



Assassin's Creed III is the opening chapter of two new stories: one of Connor, the newest Assassin, and one of a new nation, both in an epic fight for land and freedom. In this gameplay world premiere, travel through the early American city of Boston, battle man and beast alike as you explore the vast open frontier, and witness to the intensity and excitement of the Battle of Bunker Hill -- one of the most famous battles of all time.

Assassin's Creed III is due to release on October 31, 2012

Hitman: Absolution Release Date and Pre-order Details

Square Enix have announced a bunch of pre-order incentives for Hitman: Absolution, including exclusive suites and weaponry, and for the first time ever, a downloadable standalone game. They have also announced the release date for the game, which is November 20, 2012.



The first bunch of pre-order bonuses are exclusive to North America and include outfits and weaponry, you can take a look at these below.

Best Buy

Public Enemy Suit and the Bronson M1928 submachine gun
  • The Original Assassin can dress in a stylish Public Enemy gangster suit armed with the Bronson M1928, a classic submachine gun with high fire rate and deadly stopping power.

Amazon

High Tech Suit and Bartoli Custom Pistol
  • The advanced High Tech suit provides Agent 47™ with 50% increased armor paired with the Bartoli Custom, an engineered precision weapon, complete with sight and silencer.

Walmart

High Roller Suit and the Krugermeier 2-2 Pistol
  • The High Roller suit dresses Agent 47 in a fancy tuxedo discreetly outfitted with the Krugermeier, an accurate, reliable stealth weapon with a built-in silencer.

Now here's the big pre-order news, the Hitman: Sniper Challenge. This is the "standalone pre-order sniper experience" that will be available to download via PSN from May 15, that is of course if you pre-order the game from GameStop. Unless you're from Europe then you can get this pre-order bonus from various sites like; amazon.co.uk, shopto.net, play.com etc.


The game will feature achievements and weapons that carry over into the main game, plus online leaderboards. When Hitman: Absolution launches, the player at the top of the Sniper Challenge leaderboard will win a trip for two to Copenhagen, Denmark to meet the Hitman: Absolution development team, plus they’ll be able to get their face in the next Hitman game.
That's a lot of incentive to go and pre-order Hitman: Absolution, so where are you planning on getting your copy from?

EA Release FIFA 13 Screenshots and Details

Football fans, get ready as we have some brand new information about the new version of your beloved FIFA series. David Rutter, the main producer of FIFA 13, told to everyone that was present at a recent London showcase that FIFA 13 will have 5 major improvements. These 5 improvements are First Touch Control, Player Impact, Complete Dribble, Tactical Free-Kicks and Attacking AI.


One of the first things to do at FIFA 13 was to implement a more realistic ball control. Now it will be more difficult to control a receiving ball with your player. It all depends on the strength, the speed, the ball height and the technical skills of your player to achieve the control of the ball and run with it.

Another feature that got improved is the player impact engine. According to David Rutter, there will be no more unrealistic animations in the players challenges and we can hopefully kiss goodbye to all those awful physics bugs that flooded YouTube. The engine has been optimized and new a set of impact values have been added at the hip and the upper body area.

In FIFA 12 you could dribble just by changing direction. In FIFA 13 this won’t be possible anymore. Moreover, the free-kicks got a new system. Up to three players can now gather around the ball. Players can feint a direct shot and adjust it to a player who comes off the wall. Also, the defense set pieces have been improved.

Last but not least, the offensive Artificial Intelligence got a huge improvement. The CPU-controlled players got better running routes and better guessing options of where you pass the ball. Also the strikers are smarter and move with the offside line of your defenders, waiting to receive the ball and run with it towards your goal post.

There also cutting the prices of PixelJunk Monsters Deluxe (PSP), PixelJunk Shooter 2 and PixelJunk SideScroller by 50%. The sale will be available tomorrow with the PSN update.


Another main reason of the sale is to promote the release PixelJunk 4am, a new 'visualizer app' collaboratively between Q-games and Artist/DJ Baiyon. The game allows players to utilize the Playstation Move controller to manipulate a "Virtual Audio Canvas" to mix tracks and effects to create songs that you can then share with friends and the community. Playstation Plus members can join the beta now, while regular users will have to wait until May 12, 2012 to get in on the action.

Let's take a look at the games featured in the sale...


The first game in the PixelJunk Series, PixelJunk Racers, a top-down 'slot car' style racer. The single player includes three modes, Tournament, Quick Race, and Score Attack. The game also features seven player local multiplayer (no online modes).

You are getting the 2nd Lap edition in the sale, so it will include all the new features, such as:
  • Trophies
  • Ghost Mode
  • Leaderboards


The second game in the series to be offered, and arguably the most popular, is PixelJunk Monsters. Inspired by the tower-defense genre, build, upgrade, and defend your base from dozens of different types of monsters, all in a beautifully hand-drawn 2D art style.

Special note: PixelJunk Monsters Deluxe will be playable on the Playstation Vita as of May 5, 2012.


Then we have PixelJunk Eden, a collaboration between Q-games and Artist/DJ Baiyon. Players control a Grimp, a small creature that maneuvers by jumping from plant-like structures. The objective of this psychedelic platformer is to traverse from plant to plant collecting seeds and pollen to grow more plants. PixelJunk Eden also features three player local co-op, with each controlling their own Grimp.


Lastly, we have PixelJunk Shooter, which lets players control subterranean exploration vehicles to attempt to rescue surviving scientists trapped in underground cave-like complexes in over fifteen stages. Players must manipulate three types of fluid, water, magma, and a magnetic liquid, in addition to solid materiel like rock and ice, in order to reach the survivors. The game also features two player co-op, and PSP remote play.

So what do you think? Will any of you be picking the games in this sale?

Dead Island: Game of the Year Listed on Ratings Board

It looks like Deep Silver is planning on releasing a Game of the Year Edition for 2011's Dead Island, according to a rating on the BBFC (British Board of Film Classification) website, which lists the release date as June 30, 2012.



"Game of the Year" may be a bit of a stretch, when compared to Skyrim, Batman: Arkham City, or Portal 2. While the game was a hit in terms of sales, it received mixed opinions from gamers and critics alike. Maybe title it "Ultimate Edition", or "Complete Edition" instead?

The contents of this version of the game are unconfirmed, but it's likely that the Blood Bath Arena and Ryder White DLCs will be included, possibly even The Ripper mod, and the Exploding Meat mods may be included.
