Review of new games for Xbox One

Battlefield V

Battlefield V

WHAT IS BATTLEFIELD 5?

The latest entry in an iconic series that dates back to 2002, Battlefield 5 is a celebration of the chaos and the drama of combined arms warfare. At its core is the concept of the squad, a small group of players that can cooperate and coordinate together to achieve goals in-game.

Another key concept is the ticketing and spawning system. Players spend tickets from a combined pool to bring themselves and vehicles onto the map. They earn tickets back by holding key objectives. Spawning locations are always chosen by individual players. Most importantly, the squad system allows players to spawn in on top of each other during multiplayer engagements, creating a fluid and hotly contested frontline of consistent action.

The series began with Battlefield 1942, a game that was critically praised for its massive multiplayer battles involving small arms, armored vehicles and aircraft.

The most recent title, Battlefield 1, took the series back to World War I. Battlefield 5 promises to borrow elements from many other games in the series, but will also pave its own way forward.

WHEN IS THE RELEASE DATE?

Battlefield 5 is expected to launch simultaneously on PlayStation 4, Windows PC (via the Origin service) and Xbox One on Nov. 20. Players can access the game from Nov. 9 through an EA Access or Origin Access subscription. The deluxe edition of the game grants access to Battlefield 5 on Nov. 15.

WHAT VERSIONS OF THE GAME ARE AVAILABLE?

The deluxe edition of the game comes with a number of perks. The most interesting ones are the cosmetic items, as follows:

  • British Special Air Service (SAS) and German Airborne (Fallschirmjäger) cosmetic sets.
  • Special Assignments (described below) for both the SAS and Fallschirmjäger.
  • 20 cosmetic items delivered via weekly “Airlifts.”

WHAT DO I GET IF I PRE-ORDER?

Those who pre-order the game will automatically gain early access. There are complex parameters involved, and your purchasing decision will be best informed by reading through EA’s exhaustively detailed options on its dedicated website.

If you pre-order the standard edition, you will get access to several perks only available to those who purchase the deluxe edition, as follows:

  • Additional paratrooper cosmetic items.
  • One additional Special Assignment (described below).
  • Five weapons for Battlefield 1.

WHAT ABOUT THE TRADITIONAL “PREMIUM PASS?”

There will be no premium pass, the add-on that traditionally offered access to post-launch content like new multiplayer maps and weapons, for Battlefield 5.

All additional maps and game modes will be free to owners of the base game.

IS THERE A SINGLE-PLAYER CAMPAIGN?

Battlefield 5 will have a single-player campaign. It will follow the same model as Battlefield 1, telling “war stories” from around the world. Each war story will be its own unrelated tale, each with multiple missions forming a narrative arc.

The first war story introduced, called “Nordlys,” will center around a young Norwegian girl who joins the resistance against occupying Nazi forces. The action will take place in the mountains of Norway, far above the Arctic Circle.

“You will be playing as a young resistance fighter about to pay an unthinkable price,” said DICE senior producer Lars Gustavsson during a press briefing. “It’s not that kind of […] heroic experience we’re after. This is about saving your family. It is so up close and personal. That’s what we want to give to you.”

Developer DICE has teased other theaters where those war stories may take place. Areas of operation include Greece, France, North Africa and the bombed-out city of Rotterdam. Some scenes showed to the press also included areas that look conspicuously like the flooded fields and long suspension bridges common in the Netherlands.

WHAT ARE THE NEW MULTIPLAYER MODES?

Fans of the Battlefield series will be happy to know that many of the large-scale multiplayer modes that have been popular for the last few entries in the series will be returning, including many from Battlefield 3Battlefield 4 and Battlefield 1. But DICE also has a few new interesting modes up its sleeve.

The first one is called Combined Arms. It will allow up to four players to take on cooperative, raid-like engagements with multiple objectives. It will feature a press-your-luck format, with the final objective being the most difficult. Squads will have to make a decision if they want to attempt the final objective, or if they want to extract with what they’ve earned so far.

The second is called Grand Operations, massive 64-player engagements that will play out over three or four individual matches. Each match represents a different, non-contiguous day in a fictional battle. The first day might see one side attempting to defend several artillery guns and the other side trying to destroy them. Depending on how many artillery guns survive the first match will influence the balance of forces in the second match, and so on.

If the third match of a Grand Operation ends in a draw, a final sudden death match will be triggered where every player has only one life to live. Each Grand Operation is expected to take about one hour to complete.

DICE confirmed during EA Play 2018 that Battlefield 5 will also have a battle royale mode. The mode will be different from battle royale modes in other games (like Fortnite).

WHAT ARE THE MULTIPLAYER MAPS AVAILABLE AT LAUNCH?

There will be eight multiplayer maps available at launch.

Hamada and Aerodrome are set in North Africa. The first is the game’s largest map, focused on armored gameplay, while the second is a more traditional combined arms map centering around a ruined Axis aircraft hangar.

Twisted Steel is another traditional, combined arms map set in France. It featured prominently in the game’s unveiling in May, and includes the single largest structure ever built for a Battlefield game. Arras, named after the city in the Pas-de-Calais region of Northern France, is set between the English Channel and the Belgian border, the location of some of WWII’s earliest battles.

Rotterdam, Holland will be the backdrop for two new maps. The first, simply called Rotterdam, has a focus on urban combat including several multi-story buildings. Devastation is more infantry-focused.

Finally, two of the maps are set in Norway. The first, called Narvik, is modeled after the historical look and feel of that city on the eve of Nazi Germany’s 1940 invasion. Fjell 652 takes place on high mountain peaks and will pit infantry forces against high-flying fighter planes.

WHAT ARE THE BIG CHANGES TO GAMEPLAY?

The biggest change to the traditional Battlefield formula this time around are the twin concepts of scarcity and attrition.

Whenever you spawn into the game, whether it’s single-player or any of the many multiplayer modes, you’re not going to have a full complement of ammunition and supplies. Representatives from DICE have said that players will need to make the decision early on whether to press the attack and eke out a few kills with their limited resources, or immediately resupply.

Squad play has always been a signature of the Battlefield series, but this time around it’s the only way to play. There will not be an option to spawn into multiplayer games without being in a squad. Once in-game, players are always free to go their own way. Squads will be given the tools to reassign leadership roles if a squad leader wanders off on their own.

The camera system has been reworked and plays a vital role when players die.

When you’re mortally wounded, the camera will zoom in on the soldier or vehicle that killed you. From there, you’ll go back to your own soldier see their hands on the ground covered in blood. They will also begin to cry out for a medic. You’ll be able to look around in 360 degrees to get a better idea of your surroundings. From there, you have the option to allow yourself to bleed out, automatically restarting the spawn timer, or linger in place and wait for medical attention.

But after you bleed out, you’ll immediately be put over the shoulder of one of your squad mates. From there you can cycle between each of them and decide which one to spawn on top of. When you do spawn in, you’ll be very close and able to offer immediate aid in the form of melee or suppressing fire.

Once a squad is completely wiped out, they will have to work very hard to regain the ground that they’ve lost. Expect dramatic swings in the position of the front line over time.

The medical system has also been revamped. In Battlefield 5, every player in a squad can revive every other player in that squad. Only medics can revive any soldier to full health. Representatives from DICE said that this will free up their designers to enrich the role of the medic, but they did not specify what that meant.

Battlefield 5 will also include highly destructible environments. Weapons and vehicles will be able to utterly destroy some structures, leaving behind nothing more than a skeleton with a staircase and bits of roofs and upper floors. To compensate, DICE is adding buildable fortifications.

Every player will spawn into the game with a toolkit, and by spending resources players will be able to build sandbag walls, board up windows, add camouflage netting and even gun emplacements. Fortifications will be limited to certain specific locations, and only certain hotspots within those locations, which will all be scattered around the map. Like structures, fortifications can also be destroyed.

WHAT ABOUT UNLOCKABLES AND COSMETICS?

In Battlefield 5, unlocks that impact gameplay — including subclasses called Archetypes, perks, weapons and vehicles — must be earned through play. DICE has vowed that they will not be available for purchase.

Battlefield 5 will have two kinds of currency. Battlefield Coin will be earned through gameplay, and can be exchanged for gameplay items (like weapons, perks and vehicles) and cosmetic items (like jackets, helmets and weapon skins). Company Coin will be added to the game only after it launches. The premium currency will be available for purchase, and can be exchanged only for cosmetic items (like jackets, helmets and weapon skins).

DICE and EA have vowed that there will be no randomized loot crates.

The developers have said that cosmetic items can instead be earned through Daily Orders. These micro-achievements will change from day to day. In addition, players will also be able to slot Special Assignments, up to four at one time, that they can work toward to unlock certain items.

“Special Assignments are the real meaty, long-lasting cross session-type activities,” said franchise design director Daniel Berlin. “Maybe you can get them done in a session if you’re really good, to long, long-ranging things that give you the promise of these unique, iconic rewards at the end of them.

Berlin said that DICE is working to make Special Assignments accessible for all players by creating multiple pathways to succeed at each.

In the end, the goal is to have every player in a multiplayer battle look different from one another. Rather than every grenadier or shotgunner looking the same, every player will have the ability to put their own spin on what that specialized class looks like.

Tom Clancy’s The Division 2

Tom Clancy's The Division 2

DESCRIPTION

Seven months have passed since a deadly virus hit New York City and the rest of the world, crippling the population. When the virus hit, The Division, a unit of civilian sleeper agents, was activated as the last line of defense. Since then, Division agents have been fighting relentlessly to save what remains. For The Division, the stakes are higher than ever. Washington, D.C. – the most heavily protected city on earth – is at risk, leaving the entire nation on the brink of collapse. If Washington, D.C., is lost, then the nation falls. As a Division agent who has been in the field for seven months, you and your team are the last hope to stop the fall of society after the pandemic collapse. Developed by Ubisoft Massive and the same teams that brought you Tom Clancy’s The Division®, Tom Clancy’s The Division® 2 is an online open world, action shooter RPG experience set in a collapsing and fractured Washington, D.C. This rich new setting combines a wide variety of beautiful, iconic, and realistic environments where the player will experience the series’ trademark for authenticity in world building, rich RPG systems, and fast-paced action like never before. Play solo or co-op with a team of up to four players to complete a wide range of activities, from the main campaign and adversarial PvP matches to the Dark Zone – where anything can happen.

FEATURES

A TRANSFORMED WASHINGTON, D.C. In the wake of the virus, storms, flooding, and subsequent chaos have radically transformed Washington, D.C. Explore a living open world full of diverse environments, from flooded urban areas to historic sites and landmarks, during one of the hottest summers in history. The streets have been overrun with enemy factions, each with its own agenda and each vying for control of DC. It will be up to you to liberate the city and protect what remains of society. BEST-IN-CLASS ENDGAME EXPERIENCE Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 was built with an “endgame-first” mentality, ensuring players always have access to fresh, unique, and diverse activities long after completing the main campaign. Tom Clancy’s The Division 2’s endgame will introduce brand new challenges and progression systems, unique twists and surprises, and for the first time, raids. Players will also be able to access a wealth of post-launch content, including a full year of free additional story-driven missions, map expansions, and gameplay modes. REVAMPED PLAYER PROGRESSION AND NEW SPECIALIZATIONS After completing the main campaign, gain access to new specializations such as demolitionist, sharpshooter, and survivalist. Each specialization will open up an entire new progression system with new skills, mods, and unique talents to acquire and maximize your agent efficiency in your chosen role. DYNAMIC LIVING WORLD Civilians and enemy factions are constantly striving to survive, vying for necessities such as food, medicine, and ammunition. As the factions face off against each other in a ravaged DC, they will fight to seize control of resources and locations – and for their very survival. The various needs and motivations from each faction will collide, triggering different encounters between enemy and friendly factions, civilians, and ultimately you as an Agent, creating a dynamic living world full of surprises. UNITE THE CIVILIANS Civilians have banded together in settlements to rebuild their society, but their very existence is threatened. Work closely with them to keep them safe and in turn, they will come to your aid and provide supplies and assistance to build up your base of operations, giving a deeper meaning to the people and the world around you. A RENEWED DARK ZONE EXPERIENCE The Dark Zone is an untamed area of the map with some of the best loot in the game. The Dark Zone is also the most dangerous area in the game, where fear, betrayal, and tension are high, as any other agent can turn against you and steal your hard-earned loot. In Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, this playground was designed to provide a fair and exciting experience to all players, regardless of their level of progression.  

Just Cause 4

Just Cause 4 Article

Just Cause 4 Article:

Welcome to Solis, a huge South American world home of conflict, oppression and extreme weather conditions. Just Cause 4 sees rogue agent Rico Rodriguez land in Solis to hunt down the truth about his past, at any cost. Strap into your wingsuit, equip your fully customizable grappling hook, and get ready to bring the thunder!

JUST CAUSE 4 GAMEPLAY

The wingsuit, parachute, and grappling hook all return in Just Cause 4. In fact, the Just Cause 4 grappling hook is shaping up to be the series’ best yet. It now has new functionality and has “more than 4 million” customisations. You can choose different attachments, such as deploying boosters on objects with each throw of the line, and set three custom loadouts for Rico to hot-switch between while he fights.

As we gathered from leaked screenshots, Just Cause 4 weapons will have alternate fire modes such as mid-flight RPG control and explosive bullets. There’s even a gun that lets you fire a personal drone to assist you.

Just Cause 4’s gameplay certainly seems like the series is back to its emergent best. For instance, you can use Just Cause 4 airlifters to strap balloons to vehicles and ride them through the sky. Likewise, you can airlift red barrels towards an enemy base and detonate them. You can even set the airlifters to follow you, and guide whatever you choose to levitate to wherever you like – how about bringing dozens of red barrels in the centre of an enemy camp and then detonating them?

Just Cause 4’s war is depicted in-game with a frontline that Rico can push forward by raising his chaos rating. The more chaos you create, the more you’ll push the enemy back as you gather allies.

This is part of a key change to the game’s setup, too – you no longer need to destroy every red-painted construction in a settlement in order to liberate it. Instead, you will have separate liberation objectives that aren’t necessarily tied to destruction, allowing for even more free-form gameplay. And, if it was ever in doubt, Just Cause 4 will feature heaps of vehicles, such as fighter jets, sports cars, dirt bikes, and military helicopters.

What we didn’t necessarily expect was Just Cause 4 microtransactions. The game’s rating for North American audiences says the game contains “in-game purchases”, a first for the series. It’s possible that these Ubisoft-style time savers or upgrades to the game’s weapons, but we don’t know for sure, yet.

JUST CAUSE 4 SETTING

Just Cause 4’s setting is the fictional South American world of Solis. Solis will be made up of four biomes – Rainforest, Grassland, Alpine, and Desert in what will be the biggest Just Cause map the series has ever had.

Each biome will feature its own extreme weather, including tornadoes – which affect every item differently – and lightning storms, that you can use to your advantage. For instance the “simulated wind patterns” of Just Cause 4’s weather system can help you steer your wingsuit. However, these weather systems will not clash across biomes, they are restricted to each area.

JUST CAUSE 4 MULTIPLAYER

Multiplayer was one of the most wanted features for Just Cause 3, so much so that a dedicated team of fans created a Just Cause 3 multiplayer mod to fill the void.

It initially seemed that Avalanche were aware of the hunger for Just Cause 4 multiplayer as Christofer Sundberg revealed on Twitter that the devs are taking their sandbox games online and are hiring for a multiplayer team. However,  Just Cause 4 multiplayer is not on the cards. Creative director Franceso Antolini sadly confirmed to us directly that “Just Cause 4 will not feature multiplayer.”

JUST CAUSE 4 STORY

Just Cause 4 story details are a little thin on the ground right now, but the new trailer hints at a few key points. For one thing, we know that Rico will be going up against a gang called The Black Hand, “the world’s most powerful private army.” Rico will be working to take them down by increasing his chaos rating and, through that, bolstering and empowering The Army of Chaos – his allies.

A war between the two sides plays out in Just Cause 4, the front line snaking its way through the world. Rico is able to advance this line by increasing his chaos rating and recruiting locals to the cause.

Uncover the truth of Rico’s father’s past life on Solis’ and its extreme weather.

The game is set in a fictional South American country called Solis. Rico Rodriguez takes on the Black Hand, the world’s most powerful private army run by Gabriella Morales, a newly introduced character. The Black Hand serve as mercenary group to dictators Salvador Mendoza of Just Cause 1 and Sebastiano Di Ravello in Just Cause 3. When Rico is shown evidence that his late father was working with The Black Hand, he plunges into the South American nation of Solís, the homeland of the Black Hand in search of answers.

Development and release[edit]

Just Cause 4 is being developed by Avalanche Studios and published by Square Enix. The game is being developed with a new version of Avalanche’s Apex game engine. The new technology allows the game to have diverse and extreme weather effects including blizzards, sandstorms, tornadoes and more. Developers of the game noted that improvements had been made to the game’s artificial intelligence over Just Cause 3. These changes were intended to make non-player characters smarter so that they behave more tactically and pose more of a threat to the player. Other improvements to the game engine include physics-based rendering and a new animation system.

The game was announced during Microsoft‘s press conference at E3 2018, and also appeared later at Square Enix’s showcase and the PC Gaming Show. The game is scheduled to be released for PlayStation 4Windows, and Xbox One on December 4, 2018.

Hitman 2

Hitman 2 2018

Hitman 2 is an upcoming stealth video game developed by IO Interactive and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment for Microsoft WindowsPlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It will be the seventh entry in the Hitman video game series and is the sequel to the 2016 game Hitman. The game is scheduled to be released on 13 November 2018.

Following the events of Hitman, agent 47 embarks on a mission to hunt the mysterious Shadow Client and disassemble his militia, while also discovering the hidden truth about his past.

Hitman 2‘s gameplay will be similar to its 2016 predecessor, as Agent 47, a contract assassin working for the International Contract Agency (ICA), travels to various locations around the globe to eliminate high-profile targets. The game features six missions, which are set in six distinct locations. One of the missions in the game will take place at a racetrack in Miami, where 47 must assassinate one of the drivers and her tech mogul father, while another, set in Colombia, has him hunting the leaders of a local cartel.

The other four missions of the game were announced on 23 October 2018. The locations will be Hawke’s Bay, Mumbai, a suburb known as Whittleton Creek in Vermont, and the mysterious Isle of Sgàil in the North Atlantic.

The game introduces concussive gadgets, which can be used to render an NPC unconscious, and reintroduces the briefcase, which allows the player to conceal and carry large weapons, such as sniper rifles, in public without arousing suspicion.The game’s announcement was accompanied by the release of a cooperative multiplayer mode titled Sniper Assassin, available immediately to those who pre-order Hitman 2. This mode will also be bundled with all copies of Hitman 2 when the game releases. In this mode, players are tasked with eliminating targets using a sniper rifle within a set time limit. In addition to Agent 47, players can play as Knight and Stone, both of whom have access to unique ammo types.

As with its predecessor, Hitman 2 will feature the time-limited “Elusive Targets” missions. British actor Sean Bean will portray the first Elusive Target in the game.

Release:

The game was announced on 7 June 2018 during a livestream by WB Games. Hitman 2 is scheduled for release on 13 November 2018, although those who pre-order the game’s gold edition or collector’s edition gain access to the game four days early: on 9 November. Unlike its predecessor, Hitman 2 will not be episodic.

The game will have two paid expansions following its release, adding locations, missions, sniper maps, outfits, and weapons. Gold edition owners will get both expansions at no cost while silver edition owners will get only the first expansion for free.

 

Pre-order any version of Hitman 2, and you’ll receive instant access to Hitman: Sniper Assassin Mode. This new mode lets go solo or play with a friend to pull off sniper assassinations.

Red Dead Redemption II Preview

red dead redemption 2

America, 1899. The end of the Wild West era has begun. After a robbery goes badly wrong in the western town of Blackwater, Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang are forced to flee. With federal agents and the best bounty hunters in the nation massing on their heels, the gang must rob, steal and fight their way across the rugged heartland of America in order to survive. As deepening internal divisions threaten to tear the gang apart, Arthur must make a choice between his own ideals and loyalty to the gang who raised him. – Rockstar

How is that for a storyline?

October 26th, about five weeks from today, Rockstar Games will release Red Dead Redemption II, the second game of the Red Dead Redemption series. Rockstar is well-known for its Grand Theft Auto series, and RDR2 is just a western version of that. Some argue the game is even better.

You will be able to purchase RDR2 on PlayStation 4 and XBox One, with the PC release to be determined. If you pre-ordered, you will have access to a plethora of bonuses (per the Rockstar website)

– War Horse: This handsome iron-grey-colored Ardennes War Horse can always be relied on in the heat of the battle. With greater courage and stamina than the average steed, this is a horse that knows how to keep its head under fire.

– The Outlaw Survival Kit: The Outlaw Survival Kit contains a collection of key supplies for enduring the rigors of life on the frontier, including items to replenish Health, Dead Eye and more.

In addition, digital pre-order customers will receive the following:

– Cash Bonus for Red Dead Redemption 2 Story Mode: The Van der Linde gang is always looking for ways to make more money and bring in new supplies. This in-game cash bonus will give Arthur Morgan enough to buy a weapon, some food, a handful of useful items and ammunition.

The Game

OC’s own Kenneth described it best:

If you have never played Red Dead Redemption before, the best way for me to describe it is like a Grand Theft Auto open-world style game set in the old wild west. Like GTA, Red Dead is made by Rockstar Games. What we know so far is that the main character is Arthur Morgan, a cowboy that has angered groups across the Wild West. These groups will be the focal point of the plot. If you played the original Red Dead, something you should know is that this game is set before the original, chronologically speaking. If you want to get lost in a world of cowboys and the wild west while riding your horse around one of the best-designed worlds on the market, this game is a must-buy.

The only potential letdown for RDR2 is that it is not coming out for PC right away, which you could also say is another way it relates to GTA.

Gameplay

From Kenneth:

This six-minute masterpiece goes into detail about the all the refreshing tasks you can do in the game, such as:

– Piling your belongings onto a horse.
– Relaxing activities like fishing.
– Sitting around a fire conversing
– Carrying in products of a hunt

Not only did Rockstar show us some of what you can do, but they gave us a little bit of detail on the character you play, the people he hangs out with, and what he is all about.

Turns out you’re in a gang that is constantly running from the pressures of civilized life. You can talk yourself in and out of trouble, gamble, trade goods such as pelts, and so much more. At the end, the narrator says there will be another gameplay video coming out in the future where they discuss missions, activities, enemy gangs, robberies, and the deadeye system.

What we look forward to most is the shooting, combat, and more all look to be refined…making for a terrific game.

New Features

– Like GTA V, you can play in first person without a HUD if you want a full-immersive experience.
– You can swim! In the original, you could not so this is a big change.
– You can take selfies with an old-school camera. Speculation, but maybe we’ll be able to share them on Rockstar social media like GTA?!
– Online will be released separately and later, like GTA
– Per GameSpot, there is also Horse Drifting and Gun Customization!

Red Dead Redemption II will be available Friday, October 26th. Online will be available a month later, per Rockstar.

Are you excited for this game? I know I am.
