Gaming News Wrap [13 June 2014]

News Wrap 02Good morning. It’s the end of the E3 week (and by default, the end of the week generally). Now we can all go and play games rather than watch videos of them.

Or if you choose to watch rather, here’s almost all the official videos in neat little round-ups.

Games

There may be a beta coming for Rainbow Six Siege if one was to read between the lines of producer Sebastien Labbe’s comments at E3. [More…]

Diablo III: The Ultimate Evil Edition will run at 60fps on both the PS4 and Xbox One. However, while the PS4 will feature 1080p resolution, the Xbox One will be at 900p. [More…]

Ubisoft has no interest in bringing Assassin’s Creed Unity to the Xbox 360 and PS3. “It’s built for next-gen; it can’t be done on current-gen, at least we haven’t figured out how and we’re not trying to.” [More…]

Want to understand how Far Dry 4 co-op will work without a copy of the game on PS4? We suggest you head over to Eurogamer, as they have the details better than we can re-explain it.

Hideo Kojima has explained the differences between the open world of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and GTA V. Hint. They’re not the same at all. [More…]

Some details of The Phantom Pain‘s multiplayer have also been revealed. You will have your own customisable Mother Base, which is an off-shore facility where your resources are kept and can be upgraded with in-game currency. “I cannot talk too much,” said Kojimi, “but for people who saw the presentation, it ends with your Mother Base being attacked. People can infiltrate you, and you can infiltrate other people’s Mother Base.” [More…]

PayDay 2 is heading to the PS4 and Xbox One. The ‘PayDay 2: Crimewave Edition’ will include “enhanced features and a stash of new bonus content, giving fans the ultimate PAYDAY experience”. No release date has been given yet.

Dead Island 2 has eight player ‘opt-out’ multiplayer. And you can compete with (but not kill) your human compatriots. [More…]

Don’t worry about The Last Guardian being quietly canceled, because if it happens, you will be told. Thanks Shuhei Yoshida, but I’m sure the fans would just prefer to know when the game is coming out. [More…]

Surgeon Simulator is coming to PS4. Yes. Really. [More…]

Trials Frontier on the iOS has received its first major update, with the Android version to follow in July. Details here.

Consoles & Hardware

There are no plans to bring Twitch streaming to the Wii U because Nintendo doesn’t “think streaming 30 minutes of gameplay by itself is a lot of fun.” [More…]

Sales & Deals

Kalahari has announced that is has exclusive rights to sell the MadCatz MOJO Android Console in South Africa. There are however limited numbers and the console sells for R2799. Head here if you’re keen to get your hands on this Android powered micro console.

Industry

It looks like Ubisoft is in for a rough ride in the coming months. After the reveal that female characters have been excluded from Assassin’s Creed Unity, it has now been revealed that Far Cry 4 “almost” had female co-op characters but won’t because “it was purely a workload issue”… [More…]

The voice of Nathan Drake thinks Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will be Naughty Dog’s last entry in the PlayStation series. [More…]

Videos

Some more Dragon Age: Inquisition footage. We won’t say no, thanks.

And a new official trailer for the game too.

Did you say you wanted more Mortal Kombat X gameplay? Well then, Ed Boon has you covered.

‘Tuner’ is the discipline focus of this GRiD Autosport video.

Gameplay footage from Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris.

Some more Alien: Isolation footage, courtesy of Eurogamer.

A Minecraft PS4 trailer.

This is Kingdom Under Fire II on the PS4.

Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture. Apparently.

There’s a level editor in Hotline Miami 2… just another way to show off your psychopathic tendencies then.

(Now) Wii U exclusive, Devil’s Third, gets some gameplay footage. Thank E3 of course.
