With the announcement made yesterday that Metal Gear Online, a multiplayer component featured in past Metal Gear Solid installments, will be showcased during The Game Awards 2014 on December 5th, Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima has revealed some new details regarding the upcoming feature.

Kojima has stated that the ability to infiltrate other people’s Mother Base in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain — an aspect of the title shown at Gamescom earlier this year — is not part of the Metal Gear Online experience. 

“Battle in [Mother Base] revealed in [Gamescom] is NOT what MGO will be. That was one of the online elements in MAIN STORY that players can sneak in MB together,” Kojima tweeted.

From examining the tweet above, Kojima has confirmed that there is a co-op mechanic allowing players to invade someone’s Mother Base with the help of a friend.

The Phantom Pain’s development is continuing to be pushed forward by Kojima this week, as the developer tweeted an image of himself and Japanese actor Banjō Ginga (Liquid Snake and Major Zero) during a recording session for the title.

A significant amount of information regarding The Phantom Pain’s new features have also been revealed by Kojima over the past few months, including the restrictions placed on free roaming when a main mission begins, the importance of recruiting multilingual soldiers into Mother Base and Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes’ setting of Camp Omega being a location that players will be able to return to.

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

Fans of both ‘The Witcher’ series and table-top games can rejoice now that the two have been combined.  “The Witcher Adventure Game,” designed by CD PROJKET RED and creators of the critically acclaimed “The Witcher” RPG franchise is a unique table-top board game adaptation in the universe of the same name.

Up to four players can take control of Geralt, Dandelion, Triss Merigold, or Yarpen Zigrin and take upon a variety of quests to hunt monsters, earn gold on missions, and interact with other characters from The Witcher universe met in a web of alliances and treachery.

We are very excited to bring Adventure Game to Witcher and board game fans alike. We have worked with Ignacy Trzewiczek, Fantasy Flight and Can Explode for a long time to make this an ideal entry for board game beginners, as well as a fun experience for people who know this genre and universe by heart. The rules are simple but not simplistic, the artwork creates a phenomenal atmosphere that just drips out of the board, and the physical components are of the best of possible quality. We hope you will enjoy this game for months and years to come,”

Rafał Jaki, The Witcher Adventure Game Executive Producer.

(Note: trailer is of the physical table-top board game.  The screenshot shown previously is of the digital version.  For the trailer of the digital version, click here.)

The playable characters each excel in a different set of skills unique to themselves.  For example, players can use Geralt’s swordsmanship skills while Triss can use her magic spells.  Dandelion can bribe others with gold, while Yarpen can call upon other dwarves to command.  Each character comes with their own set of development cards and offers players replayability by experimenting with different builds.  Players can also choose to work alone, together, or against the others.  The game has 30 different monsters, and contains over 280 cards.  Quest cards describe the details of a main quest, along with side and support actions, as well as consequential scenarios.

‘The Witcher Adventure Game’ is available in either a physical board-game format or a digital adaptation version.  Both versions will contain the same experience, including the set of 280 cards and 30 monsters.  The physical version will include “meticulously crafted figures of in-game characters, and specially created, superior quality dice by Q-Workshop.”

The digital version of the game, developed by Can Explode, is available on Google Play, Apple Appstore, Steam and GOG.com for both PC and Mac.  (Prices vary depending on the store.)  Physical table-top board game versions of the game can be found at various board-game stores.

As many gamers already know, BioWare’s latest entry into the Dragon Age franchise, Dragon Age: Inquisition, was recently released to critical acclaim.

However, many players of the semi-open-world role-playing game have noticed something a bit odd during their forays into Ferelden or Orlais. It seems as though an obscure bug within Dragon Age: Inquisition‘s code is causing party companions to remain silent, rather than engaging in the beloved banter many gamers have come to expect from BioWare games.

According to various discussions on both Dragon Age: Inquisition‘s and EA’s forums, BioWare is having quite a difficult time trying to find the aforementioned unknown glitch in the game’s code, however that isn’t keeping the development team from doing their best to discover its source.

Read more details about the conversation bug after the break.


BioWare’s Dragon Age: Inquisition – Silent Bug

Dragon Age: Inquisition silent party bug

In order to help expedite the process of finding the bug causing party members to remain silent, Allan Schumacher, a quality assurance analyst at BioWare, is asking gamers who have played Dragon Age: Inquisition for over 60 hours to share both their save files and their general experience with the game. Naturally, the more people participate in BioWare’s hunt for the bug’s cause, the more quickly the problem will be solved.

You can find the community thread regarding this particular matter here on BioWare’s website, however there appears to be talks of players’ experiences on both EA’s forums and, of course, reddit


What are your thoughts on this news? If you’ve been playing Dragon Age: Inquisition for an extensive amount of time, have you noticed that your party members are being unusually quiet? If so, are you going to opt to share your saves and experiences with Schumacher? Why or why not?

Let us know in the comments section below! As always, stay tuned to GamerHeadlines.com for the latest in video game and technology news.

Here’s a quick question for you: if George Washington cloned himself an infinite amount of times, how many would support the Star Citizen MMO in-progress?

Here’s a quick answer: about 63 million of them. The rest I can only assume would join the remainder of the world in mocking David Cameron.

Maybe instead of taxing the homeless you could crowdfund your Dickensian schemes of bumfighter annihilation.

But enough about British parliament; let’s talk about something people WANTED to fund.

Star Citizen is an upcoming space simulation MMO from Wing Commander creator Chris Roberts that has, if money is to be any indicator, attracted a respectable amount of attention, reaching a $500,000 total on kickstarter and bringing in 2 million more in the past two weeks alone. And what have you done with your month?

It seems the space sim genre is far from dead, what with this the upcoming Star Citizen, the emerging Space Engineers indie title, and the ever-popular EVE Online. For all of the rehashed titles and cookie-cutter action games this industry can put out, it’s nice to know that no death is permanent when gamers get involved.

Stay Thankful, readers, and keep your eyes glued to gamerheadlines.com, your one-stop site for tech buzz, gaming news, and reviews for the releases that matter to YOU.

Telltale today announced the release date of the first episode in their upcoming Game Of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series. 

Details on the launch of the highly anticipated title were revealed in a series of tweets by the company on Thursday. 

Telltale revealed that, as has been the case with previous series such as The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us, the PC version of the game will drop first – as soon as Dec. 2. The Playstation 4 version will also be released on the 2nd, with the Xbox One and 360 versions dropping the following day. 

Unlike previous Telltale series there won’t be a significant wait for the iOS version this time around, with the game confirmed to be available on the App Store by December 4th. The Playstation 3 version won’t be available until Dec. 9.

As has become Telltale’s want the game will be released in episodic instalments – a system that fans of the developer have become accustomed to – and there is no word on when we can expect the second episode in the series. Telltale’s avid fan-base will be hoping they’re not left waiting as long as they were for the second instalment of The Wolf Among Us, which took almost four months to be released.

Significant details regarding the first episode, labeled Iron From Ice, including setting, characters and plot were revealed in a recent trailer on Telltale’s official website. The story is set towards the end of Season 3 of HBO’s hit TV show and features a plot revolving around House Forrester, who are described as ‘always loyal to the Starks’. Several popular characters from the show also make an appearance, with Cersei and Tyrion Lannister amongst those depicted in the trailer.

In order to prepare you for this war Edge of Reality has just released the new Loadout: Enter the Kroad trailer to show you exactly what you’re getting into.

The Kroad’s forces are made up of the Peon’s and Grunt units whose main roles are to cover the better units and serve as cannon folder. Their other more effective units are the molotov cocktail loving Grenadier, the close range Brawlers and the suicidal Boomer. Their ranks are filled then filled out with the Healbots and a Tank unit (guess what these two units do).

When the Kroad comes to Loadout you’ll be able to show the Kroad that they’re messing with the wrong person with the Alien Wear Starter, which comes with the Kroad Scalp, Tank Harness and Grunt Belt clothing items.

The Kroad and their co-op missions will be coming to the PS4 version of Loadout first and it will then come to the PC version later. Loadout will be coming to the PS4 in 2015 but you can also try Loadout today for free via Steam.

Whether she’s called Arcane Supergirl or the ‘Radiant Avatar’, beware the fires of Rao
This is what happens to anybody who uses the hot stuff pick-up on Arcane Supergirl.

This is what happens to anybody who uses the hot stuff pick-up on Arcane Supergirl.

Players can now get  a taste of the power of a Hearld of Rao with the arrival of  Infinite Crisis newest Champion, the Arcane Supergirl. Players can purchase her in the Infinite Crisis store for either 6800 merit or 650 Crisis Coins. For players who don’t like her normal robed look they can also buy her ‘Radiant Avatar’ costume from the Infinite Crisis store for 650 Crisis Coins.

Arcane Supergirl is from the Arcane universe and on the day she joined the ranks of the Hearlds of Rao, her life was scattered when a traitor of the group revealed the location of the Shrouded Realm of Krypton to the Black, whose limitless forces destroyed the world. When the Black invaded Arcane Supergirl/Kara Zor-El mother summoned her flamebird mount to rescue her daughter just before she was cut down. With her mother dead and her home lost forever she vowed that she would use the flames of Rao to get revenge on the Black.

Gameplay wise Arcane Supergirl is a DPS hero with her passive called Daughter of Rao causes her next basic attack to set her target on fire if she uses one of her skills. Her Q skill is called the Breath of Rao and it places a fireball in front of her that increases in range and speed overtime before she eventually fires it off. The fireball can be fired off early by using the skill again so the Breath of Rao can be a good skill to use if players want to mess with their opponents heads. 

Because wearing robes to battle makes no sense.

Skipping her W for a sec, her E skill is called Pyrolyze and it deals power damage as well as stunning your opponent for a very short while, mean that it’s a good move to use when chasing down a lone champion.

Returning to her W it’s called Firewall and it creates a wall of fire in a selected area which slows down enemies within the wall and does some Power Damage. The reason I skipped Firewall for a second was because it increases the effect of her other two skills. When the Breath of Rao passes through the Firewall it gets an increase of damage and when Pyrolyze passes through it, Pyrolyze has a longer stun period. Also everytime a move passes through the Firewall, its cool down is reduced. 

Arcane Supergirls R is called Rao’s Wrath which after a slight delay summons Supergirls firebird to crash into the ground dealing Power Damage to an area. This move can be used up to 3 times within a short while before it has to recharge. 

Players can now purchase Infinite Crisis newest Champion, the Arcane Supergirl in the Infinite Crisis store for 6800 merit or 650 Crisis Coins as well as her ‘Radiant Avatar’ costume for 650 Crisis Coins.
