Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate delayed for PC
Aug 26, 2017, 6:16 PM Fyra Frost
Bad news for the PC users eager to play the new title of the Assassin’s Creed series. Ubisoft has officially announced that the PC version ofAssassin’s Creed: Syndicate won’t launch on the expected date, but on November 19, one month later than it will be out for consoles. The reasons claimed for this delay are mainly more time needed to optimize and polish said version in order to provide a stable gaming experience from day one: “We have introduced several new improvements to our production pipeline and validation process, which allowed us to focus on polishing, stabilizing and optimizing the PC version very early on in the project,” explains Ubisoft Kiev studio’s production manager Sam Kovalev. “This has been one of the top priorities for the production team this year.” “The additional four weeks are for us to really bear down and finalize all of the polish and optimization, to make sure the game and all of its systems are stable when it launches, so it runs smoothly for all players starting on day one,” added Kovalev.   Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate Debut Trailer Developers have also confirmed that even if the recommended system requirements, still being finalized, are targeting 1080p and 30fps the game won’t have resolution or framerate locks. Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate is set for launch for Playstation 4 and Xbox One on October 23 and will be ready for PC on November 19. From here, hoping for the best possible launch for this new installment of the epic saga, we always prefer to wait a bit more if the result is worth it.   The post Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate delayed for PC appeared first on .

Gamer’s rejoice! China lifts ban on consoles
Jul 27, 2017, 8:56 AM Fyra Frost
This week the Wall Street Journal reported that China’s Ministry of Culture released a statement with the news that game consoles can now be manufactured and sold freely in the asian country. Previously it was only permitted at the Shanghai Free Trade Zone, effectively choking a market estimated at 22,2 billion just this year. The ban was put in place in 2000, with China quoting ” concern of the potential harm to its younger generation ” and of “threatening state security, damaging the nation’s glory, disturbing social order and infringing on others’ legitimate rights .” Having been limited previously to only PC and Mobile phone games, companies like Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft expect to finally tap into a huge market. There is still in place the countries’ censorship for games, which will limit the games that will be available, tho. The post Gamer’s rejoice! China lifts ban on consoles appeared first on .

It´s no secret that if the original Titanfall had been released on more platforms than Xbox One it would have been even a greater success, and that as developer Respawn Entertainment announced quite a while ago their FPS would get a sequel. “I guess EA announced a sequel, so I could play coy and pretend I don’t know anything about it, or… yeah. So we’re working on a sequel. No official name yet, but we’re working on that. That’s the main focus but we’re starting up a second team and doing some smaller stuff too. Small, exploratory, taking it slow! It’ll be multiplatform,” explained Vince Zampella, Respawn CEO. Now that the second installment is on the way for multiple platforms, many people are eager to get any information about what the developer is preparing for them, and that unavoidly leads to speculation and also leaks. This time we are on the second case, where the content planned for the special editions of Titanfall 2 has been leaked.

Overwatch: Post Launch Plans
Jun 7, 2017, 5:09 PM Fyra Frost
It’s been 2 weeks since the very successful launch of Overwatch. Over 7 million players across 3 platforms bought the game in its first week alone. And now, people are curious as to what’s next for Overwatch. Here’s a short rundown of Eurogamer‘s interview with Overwatch’s game director Jeff Kaplan.   Competitive play is still coming late June (projected date keeps shifting internally) will be more skill-based rather than the “progression-based” one implemented during the beta. There will be no safety nets – you’ll go down/lose points when you lose. There will be a dynamic queue just like quick match. The game will try to match you against a group of similar size. If the queue time takes too long, server will be less strict and try to match you against a different sized group. They will be keeping an eye on the matchmaking and are open to discussion.   Server tick rates There’s a general misunderstanding in the community regarding tick rates 17 minute video explanation here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTH2ZPgYujQ) In most cases, the usual problems are with the latency not the tick/update rates The servers operate at 60Hz but the client update rate is lower(20Hz) They already have a high bandwidth option that allows for 60Hz update rate Currently limited to custom games If they switch quickmatch to 60Hz update rate, 20% of the population might not be able to play They’re looking for more feedback Hero balance McCree change is straightforward Nerf to fan the hammer damage They want McCree to be a counter for heroes like Tracer, Genji and Reaper He should not be able to shred tanks easily. Will be coming sooner than D.Va changes D.Va They’re still exploring options Will take longer to pinpoint. D.Va’s not in a horrible position, but could be better Platform implementation They expect the changes to hit all 3 platforms at the same time   Play of the game They’re working on it but it’s not on the immediate horizon Would like to show more PotGs that are fun to watch They feel that they can refine how they are PotGs are shown. Possibly work on the camera angles about 70% of the current PotGs are actually really cool moments that people feel pretty happy about.   New content parts of the team are already working on patches for the end of the year and early next year they don’t know what the right cadence should be. They want to get a feel from the community as to how much content is released. Hero releases. The team felt that releasing Mei, D.Va and Genji at the same time was too disruptive They will release heroes one at a time until they feel the game stabilizes They want to be careful about overdoing it with a patch. They have placed more hints about Sombra out there that the community hasn’t found yet   Console crossplay No progress but they are very open-minded about it. They’re going to wait and gather feedback from developers and fans   The post Overwatch: Post Launch Plans appeared first on News, updates from the DLCompare.com Blog.

Virtual Reality – Gaming Niche?
May 4, 2017, 6:18 PM Fyra Frost
Despite the momentum VR has gained over the years, one has to wonder if it will truly see wide scale adoption in the gaming industry. While I am very excited for the future of gaming and VR, it might take quite a bit of time for it to see wide scale adoption. VR has picked up a lot of hype along the way, especially in the recent years, but the question still remains: how many game developers will fully embrace VR? One has to remember that VR is still quite costly with respect to how much each unit costs as well as the system required to run games with it smoothly. Based on the required specs alone, it appears that current generation consoles lack the necessary ‘horsepower’ to run games on VR. Unless the consoles can get more processing power from additional peripherals or from the ‘cloud’, they might only be able to run the simplest of VR games. For game developers to require VR in their games would mean that they would be alienating a huge portion of the console gamers outright. That’s not even mentioning the portion of the PC gaming community that cant afford the units or the necessary upgrade if their current systems cant support VR. Another thing to consider is that not all games would benefit a lot from VR. Certain game genres would gain little to no benefit with VR. Unless a huge shift in the gaming industry happens, VR would only make a little impact to the current games. VR for certain genres from MOBAs (or DOTA clones) to third person shooters to the current MMOs and many others would only provide a nice plus but wouldn’t be a game changer. On the other hand; first person shooters, potentially some creative games, horror games, and role-playing games could certainly benefit a lot from VR integration but would only likely be optional. Lastly, the VR headsets or units have their own advantages and disadvantages. Each also trying to establish their own marketplaces. Perhaps we will see something similar to what is still happening with the consoles and console exclusive games. One might try to argue that a certain headset and its peripherals are better but there may not be many games that support it; perhaps the other competitor will have the best exclusive deals despite not having the best specs in the market. To sum it up – although VR has been picking up more steam over the past few years, it doesn’t look like it will see an immediate wide scale adoption. It may be best to wait and see how things pan out before buying into one of these units. Wide scale adoption will likely happen slowly over time as more and more people buy newer systems that are capable of supporting VR as well as the cost of the VR headsets becoming more affordable in the future.
