Fans of fantasy role-playing games rejoice. The upcoming Dragon Age: Inquisition looks absolutely incredible per the new environmental video below. Just look at the glorious lighting and beautiful weather systems! Pure graphical candy generated by the latest Frostbite 3 engine will surely please the most discerning of Elder Scrolls player. The environment build crafted by developers at famed studio BioWare are aiming their talents directly at fans of Skyrim and Witcher 2 games. If this new Dragon Age plays half as great as Mass Effect 3 then Dude will surely be pleased.
BioWare are masters at making great RPGs with great story and this large, lush, and realistic open world of Dragon Age: Inquisition will surely be a big step in a new direction for the Edmonton studio. As a matter of fact, Dragon Age: Inquisition is BioWare’s first next-gen game for this new round of consoles and gaming PCs.
Dragon Age: Inquisition will arrive on the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC sometime this Fall 2014. The Fall cannot arrive soon enough!
When we started Dragon Age: Inquisition, one of our earliest goals was to bring the world to life and let you decide who you want to be in this vast and complex world. We accomplished this by using the Frostbite engine, which supports massive areas, destruction, and the most advanced next-gen technology we’ve ever seen.
Dragon Age: Inquisition is BioWare’s first next-gen game. It’s also our most ambitious game to date! Nowhere is this more visible than in the incredible size and diversity of locations, life, and hidden places you’ll discover on your journey.
Our new “Discover the Dragon Age” video highlights only some of the locations you can choose to visit during your adventure. Each area in the video has its own realistic ecosystem with predators, prey, factions, and opportunities to expand your Inquisition.
The world’s population is based on an emergent system that adjusts what you’ll encounter based on how your actions tip the balance in the area. You’ll see towns attacked by bandits, deer fleeing from wolves, giants feeding on bears, and countless other scenarios.
The artists, designers, programmers, animators, audio and VFX specialists and many others are the most talented I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. They are the people bringing the world of Dragon Age to life for you to discover. They’ve built incredible graphics systems like weather that creates naturally-formed puddles, spider webs that blow in the wind, and huge amounts of various materials that look more realistic than anything we’ve ever created in a BioWare game!
Hawken the long-awaited FREE mech-combat game is now available to Steam early access users for $29.99 which allows you access to a bunch of great combat goodies. To get your robotic fight on in the right direction the Hawken Nemesis bundle available for purchase includes 9 powerful Mechs with unlocked weapons, the RD-B00 Repair Drone (Global – Available on All Mechs), a Bloody Hawken Pilot emblem, early access to the game, 720 Meteor Credits, and 6410 Hawken Credits. All this gets you 75% off the regular purchase in-game price for a limited time right now. If you like Mech combat then I would say jump all over this deal on Steam right away! If you decide not to get this deal then that’s ok, but this might be one of those times your going to wish you could go back in time and grab this offer for this award-winning game. I’m not going to make that mistake. The Dude is going to get it right now! Ok, there…aahhh.
Hawken in development by Adhesive Games since 2010 and in beta testing since 2012 is now officially released on the Steam market place with the help of new publisher Meteor Entertainment found by Adhesive. Hawken at its core is a freemium, or free to play game much like World of Tanks, except these tanks walk, run, jump, and parry the way you would think a giant combat robot of the future should. Early adopters of the game who played the beta early on need not start over now that the game is transferred to Steam. Your account will transition over for free along with all of your hard-earned mechanized goodies. Those just getting into the game for the first time won’t feel disadvantaged by the Hawken fan base already playing because you’ll be required to get the Hawken Nemesis Bundle to get “early access” to the complete game. If you choose to wait and join Hawken when free play begins, feel free to do so. Just be prepared for prices to increase at least 75% for Mechs and other in-game goodness in the near future.
Hawken has won multiple awards and accolades and I wouldn’t be surprised the decision to release a PC version of Titanfall was made by Respawn Entertainment after they noticed how fantastic Hawken really was. Check out the Hawken website to sign up and view the Mechs! In the meantime enjoy these fantastic screen shots and official launch trailer! ’Missiles away, over and out!’
InFamous Second Sun is one the most anticipated Playstation 4 games coming in early March this year. I for one can’t wait to test the PS4 graphical capabilities with this graphically intense game brought to us by developer Sucker Punch!
Choice has always played a vital role in the inFAMOUS series, and inFAMOUS Second Son is no exception. Amidst all the open-world action that developer Sucker Punch has set in its own Seattle, Delsin can enter combat as a careful hero or a ruthless force. These methods of play not only affect how each battle scene is approached, but how Delsin’s powers manifest themselves.
Dudes over at PC Gamer magazine are running the ultimate gaming machine called the LPC or Large Pixel Collider containing the newest most powerful hardware. Super high-resolution screen shots taken from the LPC span several monitors and were generated from four Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan graphics cards totaling over $1000 each. These pics should burn up you home bandwidth if you choose to download. Titanfall is beautiful on the greatest of PCs, but I also enjoy the Xbox One pics as well. Respawn Entertainment is going to try to achieve at least 900P HD resolutions on the Xbox One Console. In the meantime enjoy these super high-res PC screenshots!
