Hearthstone is just under a year old and the digital card game is expected to be getting its next expansion in April which would make it the third addition to the game after “Curse of Naxxaramas” and most recent, Goblins vs. Gnomes. These are reports coming from an insider from Activision Blizzard which revealed a slew of news for upcoming Blizzard titles.

Details around the expansion were scarce though according to the report the expansion will be more focused on PvE content similar to the “Curse of Naxxaramas” which included multiple scenarios against CPU. According to the report, the development team is also experimenting on a 2 vs. 2 version of the game. If these reports are true, we could see Blizzard releasing two expansions each year with one expansion being tuned towards different CPU scenarios, and the second being a larger expansion in the ball park of Goblins vs. Gnomes. 

It was also revealed that the game has tripled its players number to approximately 75 million players. With the game launching onto multiple devices including iOS & Android, Hearthstone has been one of Blizzards biggest games released.

Hearthstone is currently free and available on multiple platforms including iOS, Android, PC & Mac.

The author behind the Bloodborne Strategy Guide has revealed himself to the public, alongside some tantalizing details about the book itself.

The book, now available for pre order over on Amazon.com, is to be published by Future Press and has been written by Marcus who goes by the YouTube name EpicNameBro. He uploaded a video, which you can see below, to his channel detailing his work on the guide which will launch alongside the game in March.

The book will contain all the usual material found within a strategy guide, but more importantly, the Collector’s Edition guide will come with an interview with the game’s creator, and the Souls series overlord, Hidetaka Miyazaki. Marcus is unable to divulge any other details about the book, as they would be considered major spoilers, but was given the go ahead by developer From Software to spill the beans on his meeting and interview with Miyazaki. The guide will also include a Dynamic Theme for players’ PS4 home dashboard’s that will be downloadable from a redeemable code found within the book.

The video also details the process of writing these kind of guides – a part of the industry that never really gets much focus. So for those interested, the above video makes for a good watch!

Bloodborne is currently scheduled to launch exclusively for PlayStation 4 in North America on March 24th, 2015. A European and Japanese launch will follow on March 25th and 26th respectively, with a UK launch taking place on March 27th.

New trailer shows off Evolves single-player monster hunting/hunter slaying fun

Gamespot has highlighted a new trailer for 2K Games and Turtle Rock Studios upcoming title Evolve, which shows off the titles single-player capabilities. The 22 minute gameplay video (which was released on Thursday) sees two full matches of Defend, with one round being played as the latest revealed monster the Wraith, and the other as the hunters.

While playing as the Hunters in solo, players will be able to switch between the classes at any time. 

One of the biggest things about Evolves “Solo Mode” is that anything players unlock in this mode whether its character unlocks or monster unlocks will carry over to the multiplayer mode.

Also since the Solo mode is against AI opponents, players will be able to practice new combinations and try out their newly unlocked monsters without consequence.

Turtle Rock also revealed the following infographic revealing the differences between offline and online play. The main differences between the two modes are that players will be able to pause the game in solo mode, but unfortunately players won’t be able to dominate their friends online. 

Evolve

Evolve will be released on February 10th for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

Developer Quantic Dream has launched its brand-new website and, at the same time, some never-before-seen footage from the studio’s 2013 PlayStation 4 tech demo, The Dark Sorcerer.

Despite the tone of its name, The Dark Sorcerer was presented at PlayStation Meeting as a next-generation comedy title, which was highlighted with the serious old man having to deal with the antics of Maurice (a goblin) and a demon.

The making of The Dark Sorcerer (see below) features the three actors from the title—David Gant, Carl Anthony Payne II and Christian Erickson—discussing the story, their respective characters and the experience of working on the project. 

Meanwhile, the website has received a complete overhaul and now includes trailers, behind-the-scenes footage and images for Quantic Dream’s well-known titles, including Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls.

“New design, bigger-than-life images, videos, additional content: through our new website we want to open the doors of our studio so you better track our projects and get even more information about our creations, our team, available jobs, etc… So, visit us regularly,” reads the message posted on the website.

Earlier this month, Quantic Dream launched a teaser website called “achillingfeeling.com,” and the true purpose of the site was recently revealed: Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy Remastered, an updated version of the studio’s 2005 interactive drama.

Quantic Dream also confirmed this month that former Ubisoft Blue Byte head Christopher Schmitz had joined the development team as a production director.

The French-based studio is currently working on two unannounced PlayStation 4 titles.

Last gen, it would be fair to say that there was parity between the Xbox 360 and PS3 in terms of games played by the FGC, or Fighting Game Community. Each console had the major games, but the Street Fighter IV and Marvel vs Capcom 3 games (the 2 biggest tournament games) were mainly played on the 360. The Evolution Championship tournament even changed the main console to 360 for last year’s event. The FGC is spread generously across the different consoles, with some players even preferring PC, however that may change with current gen.

The announcement of Street Fighter V as a PS4 exclusive might certainly change the balance. At the moment, Killer Instinct is the Xbox One’s only exclusive fighting game, but the PS4 has a few so far as well as the multiplatform games that are appearing on the Xbox One too. Guilty Gear Xrd in particular has had a big impact of those in the FGC looking to purchase a current gen console, and more games are sure to follow that will influence players.

It’s commonly known that ‘anime’ fighting games such as Guilty Gear and 3D fighters like Tekken are usually more popular on the Sony consoles and that trend is likely to continue. Whereas GGXRD is a Sony exclusive, titles such as Tekken 7 and Dead or Alive 5: Last Round will be multiplatform, however both those games will still likely be favored on the PS4., as their sequels have been favored on the PS3.

SFV was definitely the turning point

SFV was definitely the turning point

Sony has also been working closely with Capcom in all of this, announcing that they will be supporting the Capcom Pro Tour in 2015. It’s also partly why the grand prize for the Capcom Cup finals will be $500,000. Considering Ultra Street Fighter IV will also be making its way to PS4 soon, it’s seeming more likely that the PS4 will dominate the FGC in this generation. When you can purchase multiplatform fighting games like Mortal Kombat X on the PS4, as well as exclusive titles such as Guilty Gear Xrd, there almost seems no reason to buy any other console.

That is unless you’re a dedicated fan to either Killer Instinct on the Xbox One or the Smash Brothers games on Nintendo consoles. Tournament organizers and players alike may have to start considering this in the future and stock up on PS4 fightsticks.

Phil Spencer mentioned that he will try to focus his efforts on compensating for SFV not being on Xbox One, which I can imagine means that there will be more exclusive fighting games. We have to remember that there’s still the chance of another Marvel vs Capcom game down the line, but one would assume that will be multiplatform. If anything, that might ease the blow for those not getting a PS4 for SFV.  For the moment though, the PS4 seems to be the go-to console for the FGC and SFV made that choice even clearer.


If you’re in the FGC, which current gen console are you planning to get, and why? Are you going to get the Xbox One for Killer Instinct and the main multiplatform titles? Or do you not want to miss out on SFV and potential anime fighting games? Let us know in the comments.

Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima has posted a few images from Taipei Game Show ahead of his upcoming stage presentation for the highly anticipated Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

Kojima took to Twitter to confirm his arrival at the gaming convention and reveal the stage layout for The Phantom Pain, with the Japanese developer also captioning his tweet: “Rehearsing for tomorrow.” 

Earlier this month, Metal Gear Asia’s Facebook page announced Kojima would be in attendance at Taipei Game Show—the developer’s first appearance since his last visit four years ago—and will be holding a 1-hour stage presentation on The Phantom Pain from Sony Computer Entertainment’s booth.

Recently, Kojima revealed on Twitter a new feature he has been working on in The Phantom Pain, while development on the title is continuing with voice actors, including Robin Atkin Downes (Kazuhira Miller) and Jay Tavare (Code Talker), recording their lines and voice-over work being done on the iDroid.

The Phantom Pain, which will include the multiplayer component Metal Gear Online, is the follow-up to Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and will once again have Big Boss as the main protagonist. To learn more on The Phantom Pain’s story, have a read of the official synopsis that publisher Konami released.

Running on Kojima Productions’ Fox Engine, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is rumoured to launch in Q2 of 2015 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
