News – Rocket League drives on to the Xbox One pitch next week http://www.consoleob.com/news/news-rocket-league-drives-on-to-the-xbox-one-pitch-next-week/ http://www.consoleob.com/news/news-rocket-league-drives-on-to-the-xbox-one-pitch-next-week/#respond Wed, 10 Feb 2016 16:19:40 +0000 http://www.consoleob.com/?p=23957 Rocket League was met with a warm reception upon its release on PS4 and PC last July, and Xbox One fans will finally be able to play the football game with a difference from next Wednesday, February 17th.

What is different about Rocket League in comparison to the likes of FIFA and Pro Evolution Soccer? Well, instead of taking control of arrogant and overpaid football players, you take control of vehicles instead. You also play with a rather large ball. This is certainly not a game to be taken seriously, then.

New in the Xbox One version are two new vehicles, which include the Halo HogSticker, an alternate version of the Warthog, and the Armadillo Armored Personnel Carrier from Gears of War.

In welcome news, the Xbox One version will also contain all the content, upgrades, and features found in the previous version.

Based on the video, the savage setting seems to have been put to good use.

With a February 23rd release on PS4 and Xbox One, there’s not too long to wait for the release of Far Cry Primal now. A PC release is also due in March.

The beta will first be staring on the Xbox One with 24 hour early access from February 18th. Then Xbox One and PC players can join in the fun from February 19th. The beta is due to last until February 21st, and will give those who didn’t take part in the closed beta a chance to try out the game ahead of its March 8th release date, as well as for Ubisoft to do additional stress tests on the servers as well as to gather feedback from players.

The open beta also features some content that was absent from the closed beta. This includes a new story mission, and Ubisoft are also promising that anyone who plays the beta will receive a special in-game reward upon the game’s full release.

You’ll be able to download the beta from February 16th before it officially launches, which means that you’ll be able to jump straight into the beta on the day it begins. A new trailer for the game can also be viewed below.

We’ll have a review of the major expansion in the coming days. As you can see in my review of the original game, I am a big fan of Techland’s open-world zombie game, so I’m hoping that the expansion will be up to the same standards.

News – The next Sherlock Holmes game is due in May http://www.consoleob.com/news/news-the-next-sherlock-holmes-game-is-due-in-may/ http://www.consoleob.com/news/news-the-next-sherlock-holmes-game-is-due-in-may/#respond Tue, 09 Feb 2016 14:10:25 +0000 http://www.consoleob.com/?p=23940 The recent release of Agatha Christie – The ABC Murders proved to be a decent one, although it obviously took inspiration from Frogwares’ Sherlock Holmes series, of which The ABC Murders game failed to better, or even match for that matter.

Luckily, the eighth game in the Sherlock Holmes series, Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter, now has a May 27th release date on PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Unique game mechanics and an epic storyline are promised. You’ll get to explore various areas in Victorian London for clues, and Holmes himself is apparently caught between family, dark forces and powerful thirsts for vengeance. Are you intrigued? I am.

The previous game in the crime adventure series, Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments, was a hit for me, as you can see in my review of the game.

Weapons include the carrot rifle, the watermelon machine gun, the turnip mortar, and the runner bean laser, which can be combined with up to 16 different ammo types. Yes, ordinary real-world weapons are boring for a game that features cartoon bunnies.

If you shoot coins, you can collect them and are able to spend them on new weapons, upgrades and ammo. Sticky raspberries, heat seeking chilli seeds, shredding leek lasers and pumpkin bombs are amongst them.

The game has a survival mode and a slaughter mode. The latter tasks you with surviving for 2 minutes, although you have weaker weapons and less health, which are both dependent on the difficulty that you choose.

Add-on content will also be available for the game, which includes the following:

5 Arena Packs: US$/€ 1.99 each. Each one contains a new arena, day/night system and 3 new music tracks
5 Skin Packs: US$/€ 2.99 each. Each one contains 21 new skins (3 for each bunny type)
3 Permanent Multipliers: US$/€ Free to 9.99. The Multipliers cumulatively increase how many coins you collect when you shoot a coin
4 Weapon Unlocks: US$/€ 2.99 to 4.99. For those who don’t want to play the game to unlock everything!

Add-on content will also be bundled in the following way to save you some money:

5 Skin and Arena Bundles: US$/€ 3.99 each. Each contains a matching skin and arena pack. (Content value of each – US$/€ 4.98)
All Skins and Arena Bundle: US$/€ 9.99. Contains all of the skins and arenas. (Content Value US$/€ 24.90)
Mega Bundle: US$/€ 14.99. Contains all of the skins, arenas and multipliers. (Content Value US$/€ 39.88)
Super Mega Bundle US$/€ 19.99 (only available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and Xbox One). This contains the game, all skins, arenas and multipliers. (Content Value US$/€ 44.87)

Blast ‘Em Bunnies will first be released on March 9th on PS4 and Vita and can be purchased via Cross-Buy. The game will then launch on March 10th on 3DS and March 11th on Xbox One. The launch trailer can be viewed below.

News – The Hitman beta gives you access to the Prologue mission http://www.consoleob.com/news/news-the-hitman-beta-gives-you-access-to-the-prologue-mission/ http://www.consoleob.com/news/news-the-hitman-beta-gives-you-access-to-the-prologue-mission/#respond Tue, 09 Feb 2016 00:04:26 +0000 http://www.consoleob.com/?p=23928 Taking place in a secret training facility, the Prologue mission of the upcoming Hitman game is set 20 years before the events of the first Paris mission. This was a time in which Agent 47 was introduced to the ICA as well as his handler Diana Burnwood. The Prologue mission won’t only be launching with the first episode of the game on March 11th, as we now also know that the exclusive PS4 and PC beta of the game will be comprised of this mission.

The Prologue mission features two free-form hits, and it will allow you to get to grips with the game during Agent 47’s early career. If you are wondering if the famously bald-headed assassin had more hair back then, you could always have a gander at the new beta trailer below.

If you are desperate to play the beta, the only manner in which you are guaranteed access is by pre-ordering the Intro Pack or the Full Experience. Pre-ordering the Collector’s Edition will also grant you guaranteed access to the beta.

The Hitman beta begins on February 12th and ends on February 14th on PS4, while the PC beta will run from February 19th until February 22nd.
