Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus Confirmed; Release Date Leaked by Amazon

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus appears to be the official name of Wolfenstein: New Colossus which was hinted at by publisher Bethesda at E3 2016.

In the run up to Bethesda’s E3 2017 event, Amazon Germany had put up a listing for the game which has now been removed. Spotted by members of popular gaming forum NeoGAF, it suggests that Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus has a release date of October 27 this year.

Cleverly disguised at Bethesda’s E3 2016 conference, Wolfenstein: New Colossus may take place in Nazi-occupied America. Developed by Machine Games – the studio behind the excellent Wolfenstein: The New Order and Wolfenstein: The Old Blood, it could be confirmed at E3 2017.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus Confirmed; Release Date Leaked by AmazonBrian Bloom, the voice actor of series protagonist BJ Blazkowicz, also suggested that we’d see more Wolfenstein in the future, making this seem likely. Or it could just be an elaborate ruse to keep our minds off how iffy Quake Champions is.

Regardless, Bethesda’s E3 2017 conference should put all speculation to rest.

And where does this leave us with Bethesda? If true it probably means that we may see Starfield – the heavily rumoured open-world title set in space as well as The Evil Within 2 from Vanquish and Resident Evil 4 mastermind, Shinji Mikami.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 Gameplay Leaked Before EA E3 2017 Event

tar Wars Battlefront 2 gameplay saw an early, unofficial reveal courtesy YouTube user Mjolnir. This comes hours before EA Play – the company’s event that runs parallel to E3 2017. The video has since been taken down by EA but it has been uploaded to other channels.

Appearing with a ‘sponsored by EA’ watermark at the beginning, it seems that it was uploaded ahead of schedule. Official footage should show up at EA Play 2017.

There’s a variety of abilities on display and long-time Star Wars fans would find plenty to revel in from Fett’s jetpack to Maul’s dual lightsaber.

And while multiplayer gameplay is par for the course in the series’ recent avatar, we hope EA sheds some light on what to expect for those interested in Star Wars Battlefront 2’s single-player campaign.

Prior to this EA did mention that the Star Wars Battlefront 2 beta will take place in Fall. Hopefully we get an exact release date sooner rather than later. Keep in mind that you’d need to pre-order the game to get access.

A Way Out Is a New EA Originals Co-Op Game

A Way Out is an upcoming game from the makers of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. It’s a co-op game where two players will need to coordinate with each other to progress through the story mode.

A Way Out is being developed by Hazelight Studios in partnership with Electronic Arts. This game is a part of the EA Originals program. The trailer shows that the story is heavily focused on co-op play with two characters — Leo and Vincent working together in the game.

There are moments such as car chases, escaping from prisons, fights, and more, all of which will rely on cooperation. This game is ideal for two players sitting in the same room and the gameplay footage even showed the game continuing for one player when the other character was in the middle of a cutscene. This means there is a lot to be gained by playing the game a second time, as a different character. We’re always happy to see some replay value in games and A Way Out appears to have that.

A Way Out Is a New EA Originals Co-Op GameThis game focuses heavily on storytelling and gameplay. Josef Fares, Writer and Director at Hazelight said in the trailer video, “The idea for A Way Out came when me and a friend tried to find a story driven co-op game that wasn’t a drop-in/drop-out experience. We simply could not find a game like that. We’re also bringing an innovative look into how to tell the story of both these characters.”

A Way Out will be available as a digital download in early 2018 on PC via Origin, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 Gameplay Trailer Shows Off Story, Campaign, and Characters

Star Wars Battlefront 2 had an official gameplay trailer at EA Play – EA’s event prior to E3 2017. Powered by the company’s Frostbite Engine, it showed off a host of familiar faces from the series such as Kylo Ren, Yoda, and Chewbacca.

The single-player campaign has players in the role of a TIE fighter pilot for the Empire and unlike 2015’s Star Wars Battlefront, it will contain multiple eras of the Star Wars canon with characters such as Darth Maul and Rey as well, which were seen in previously leaked multiplayer footage.

Before revealing this, EA got John Boyega – Star Wars’ Finn on video to announce that his character along with Captain Phasma would be heading to Star Wars Battlefront 2 post-launch for no extra charge along with free Star Wars Last Jedi content.

Free PS4 EA Game Trials, Xbox One EA Access, and PC Origin Access for an Entire Week

At EA Play, EA’s pre-E3 2017 event, the company announced that some of its PS4 games can be played for free while its subscription service for the Xbox One and PC known as EA Access and Origin Access respectively is free as well. This is until June 18.

The reason for this generous gesture is due to players who took part in various Play to Give in-game challenges last week. This resulted in EA donating $1 million to charities HeForShe, the National Bullying Prevention Center, and Ditch the Label.

According to EA: “It’s our way of saying thank you for coming together to show the positive force that games can be.”

What does this mean for you? Well, if you have an Xbox One and Xbox Live Gold, you can play all the EA Access Vault games for free. PC gamers can play all Origin Access Vault games for no cost as well. PS4 owners can check out the following games.

Forza Motorsport 7 Release Date Leaked; Hints at Possible Xbox Scorpio Launch Date

Forza Motorsport 7 release date for the Xbox Scorpio and Xbox One could be October 3, 2017 according to a new leak. This comes hours before Microsoft’s E3 2017 press conference that should see the reveal of the Xbox Scorpio console as well as a host of games that could take advantage of its impressive specifications.

Nonetheless, Forza Motorsport 7 for the Xbox Scorpio should come as no surprise. After all, Forza did feature for the console’s specifications announcement earlier this year.

The October 3 release date for Forza Motorsport 7 could also mean an earlier than anticipated Xbox Scorpio release date.

Forza Motorsport 7 Release Date Leaked; Hints at Possible Xbox Scorpio Launch DateWith analysts weighing in on a possible $399 price for the Xbox Scorpio and journalists claiming $499, it appears that the console’s release date may have been hidden in an E3 teaser from the company.

One teaser shows a large crowd at what seems to be music concert. On the stage to the right is “X10S101-317”. Assuming that X10S is Xbox Scorpio, you’re left with a possible October 13, 2017 Xbox Scorpio release date. This is a Friday and would be in line with the Xbox One that also launched on a Friday.

But would Microsoft risk launching a new game meant to take advantage of the Xbox Scorpio before the console itself? It seems unlikely. All shall be revealed at the Xbox Scorpio E3 2017 event.

Xbox Scorpio Is Xbox One X; Release Date Announced: Microsoft at E3 2017

The Xbox One X has a release date of November 7, 2017 worldwide. Microsoft finally announced the much hyped console during its Xbox E3 2017 conference. Allaying rumours aplenty over the week from analysts and journalists chiming in on what to expect. All existing games and accessories will work with the Xbox One X. Along with the release date, an Xbox One X price of $499 has been announced as well. No India price has been revealed just yet.

Xbox One X Specifications

  • Project Scorpio CPU Eight custom x86 cores clocked at 2.3GHz
  • GPU 40 customised compute units at 1172MHz
  • Memory 12GB GDDR5
  • Memory Bandwidth 326GB/s
  • Hard Drive 1TB 2.5-inch
  • Optical Drive: 4K UHD Blu-ray

Xbox Scorpio Is Xbox One X; Release Date Announced: Microsoft at E3 2017Xbox One X price in India

As usual, don’t expect India to get Xbox One X the same time as the rest of the world despite Microsoft claiming a worldwide release. The Xbox One S released globally in August, 2016, but doesn’t have a concrete release date for India yet.

That aside, the Xbox One X won’t be cheap either, with several grey market retailers planning to capitalise on the hype surrounding it to sell at exorbitant rates. Safe to say, you’ll need to import it or get a friend or relative to pick it up for you abroad if you want the best possible deal.

Sony Launches PS4 Slim Gold Edition

The rumours are true. Sony has announced the PS4 Slim Gold Edition. At the moment will be available in the US only and can only be bought from June 9 to June 17. Sony is touting “additional discounts on software and accessories” albeit not revealing any details just yet.

Aside from being gold, it has a price of $249 (almost Rs. 16,000), lower than the $299 (around Rs. 19,000) price point of the standard black PS4 Slim. So far there doesn’t seem to be any plans to bring this specific edition outside of the US with Sony’s European and Indian counterparts yet to announce it for their respective regions.

Sony Launches PS4 Slim Gold EditionShould you buy the Gold PS4 Slim? Frankly, no. Sony has far better bundles on the store shelves. Particularly its latest offering. Rs. 28,990 gets you a PS4 Slim 500GB console, Horizon Zero Dawn, Ratchet and Clank, and Driveclub. In addition to this, Sony India is also throwing in a three month subscription to PlayStation Plus (PS Plus) – Sony’s online service that allows you to play multiplayer and grants you access to an assortment of games each month. Not to mention it comes with official warranty and support.

And if that’s not important, several consumers have reported being able to purchase the PS4 Slim 500GB for as low as Rs. 19,700 at grey market outlets in Delhi and Mumbai. Granted, you’re missing out on an additional 500GB of storage space, but between the PS4 hard drive being simple to replace and support for external hard drives, this is far from an issue.
