Get an Exclusive First-Look at Warhammer 40,000: Regicide's Troops in Action

GameSpot's PC Reviews - 3 hours 9 min ago

Warhammer 40,000: Regicide isn't your typical Warhammer game. The upcoming title from Hammerfall Publishing is a variation on chess that, according to the game's press release, will let you "turn a chessboard into a defensive gun line, power up your pieces, call in airstrikes, cast spells, and score a checkmate at the end of a chainsword."

The game is coming to PC first and will eventually roll out to mobile platforms as well.

Regicide's primary gameplay has two modes:

  • Regicide: where you "plan an attack and command your soldiers through multiple phases of combat."
  • Classic: where you "sharpen your tactics based on traditional chess rules, brutally executing violent kills in diverse battlefield terrains."

You can check out the new units in action in the above-embedded GIFs, or click through the image gallery below to see even more of the Ork and Space Marine models.

New Gears of War May Return to Series' Darker Roots - IGN News

IGN.com - 3 hours 39 min ago
Microsoft's Phil Spencer hopes the next Gears of War returns to the series' darker roots. In the beginning, Spencer loved the "epic scale, the settings that I was in, the massive destruction moments. It was more what I would call soulful and maybe even a little dark." The Head of Xbox told IGN that, in discussions with Rod Fergusson, who's in charge of Gears of War at Black Tusk Studios, he's talked about Gears of War becoming "a parody of itself" over time. "Not for any horrible reasons," but because managing success over time is challenging.

Judge Sides with EA in Battlefield 4 Lawsuit

IGN.com - 4 hours 25 min ago

EA has scored a partial victory in the ongoing class action lawsuit over the troubled launch of Battlefield 4.

After Battlefield 4 launched with a series of problems, plaintiffs filed a class action lawsuit against EA and several EA executives, claiming that EA made false public assurances to investors regarding the game's readiness. The plaintiffs pointed to eight statements made by EA executives, which they argued were made to sell EA stock at artificially inflated prices.

According to Courthouse News, the judge has agreed with EA that the statements amount to nothing more than corporate confidence, not securities fraud. "Defendant

Buy Your Tickets to Sony's PlayStation Experience Later This Week

GameSpot's PC Reviews - 4 hours 38 min ago

Tickets for Sony's upcoming PlayStation Experience event will go on sale later this week, the company announced today.

You'll be able to buy tickets from The Venetian's website beginning this Friday, October 24. One-day passes will cost $50, while two-day passes will run you $90.

The ticket itself is not what will get you into the exhibit hall; once you've gotten your hands on one, you'll need to take the ticket and a government-issued photo ID to a Venetian/Palazzo box office between December 4 and December 7 to receive a wristband. Alternatively, you can pick up your wristband (using your ticket and ID) outside the Sands Expo Hall C on December 6 or December 7.

Sony announced PlayStation Experience earlier this month as a "massive" two-day community event in Las Vegas. Taking place December 6-7, Sony says it will be an "unprecedented" event that offers attendees the chance to play unreleased games and attend panels and keynotes featuring members of the games industry. On a recent podcast, Sony's Scott Rohde teased, "This is an event for the fans, and I am so incredibly geeked about it. We're gonna show you a bunch of stuff that maybe we shouldn't show you yet."

Although you won't be able to try games or get your hands on the free swag that will be available at the show without attending, you will be able to take in at least some of the event from home. Sony plans to offer live video from the event, though it hasn't provided specifics as of yet.

The same goes for exactly what games, publishers, and panels will be at the show--you'll have to buy tickets knowing very little about what you're getting into. Sony hasn't indicated how many tickets will be available, but it did say that those hoping to sit for the opening keynote address will need to be among the first 5,500 to enter the building. Seating will be first-come, first-served.

Explore Far Cry 4's Interactive Website

IGN.com - 5 hours 8 min ago

In the weeks leading up to Far Cry 4's Nov. 18 release, Ubisoft is releasing episodic video content to emphasize survival in the game's open world.

Essentially, the content will play out similar to "Choose Your Own Adventure" books, albeit in video form. Players can choose branching paths that may or may not lead to their eventual demise or survival. The chapters are divided into what Ubisoft is calling "rites of passage," each with their own cryptic title: "Eye for an Eye," "Rabbit Hole," "Mind Blossom," and "Escape." Each of these will release on the Far Cry 4 site.

Judging by the trailer, these chapters will comprise a variety of bizarre situations –– one clip shows the player strung up by a hunting trap, surrounded by an array of multifarious characters.

Guild Wars 2 Gets Update to Its Currency Exchange System

IGN.com - 5 hours 15 min ago

Guild Wars 2 changed the way it handles in-game currency with the launch of the Halloween holiday event, the Mad Realm festival.

Whereas before players could exchange any amount of gold for gems to buy items, the new system allows players to make the exchange only in set amounts.

In an editorial on MMO site Ten Ton Hammer, its explained that before the change, gold could be exchanged in any amount. "If you wanted 10 gems, you could do it. If you wanted 437 gems, you could do it." After the change, however, gems can only be purchased in batches of 400.

StreetPass With Faraway 3DS Owners During National StreetPass Weekend

GameSpot's PC Reviews - 5 hours 19 min ago

The 3DS' StreetPass feature is a neat one, letting you exchange data with fellow 3DS owners you pass. But if you're not someone who travels much, odds are that anyone you do manage to StreetPass lives in the same state as you. You'll have the opportunity to change that and diversify your StreetPass connections next week when Nintendo hosts the second-ever National StreetPass Weekend.

2700615-streetpass+weekend.jpg

Much like last year, you'll have a few days to visit a Nintendo Zone hotspot somewhere in the United States. By doing so, you'll be able to get up to six StreetPass tags from faraway 3DS owners.

The event runs for three days, from October 31 through November 2. The first National StreetPass Weekend was scheduled for two days last December, but a positive reaction to its announcement caused Nintendo to kick it off a day early.

There are more than 29,000 Nintendo Zone hotspots, many of which can be found at Best Buy, McDonald's, and various airports. You can find one near you at Nintendo's website.

Google Is Trying to Make Two-Step Verification Easier

IGN.com - 5 hours 31 min ago

Google is strengthening its two-step verification with Security Key, a physical USB device that works after verifying the login site is truly a Google website.

Generally, two-step verification requires you to enter a verification code that was sent to your mobile device in addition to your password. But now that Google supports Security Key, you can insert the USB Security Key into the computer's USB port instead of entering a verification code when using Chrome.

The first documentary film in full 360 degrees is set to release on the Oculus Rift.

Called Zero Point, the film is a documentary about the development of virtual reality, depicting everyone from pioneers to the researchers and engineers that have made it possible.

Zero Point is filmed in 360 degrees, meaning the viewer will be completely surrounded by the camera work and able to look all around themselves at the shot while wearing the Oculus Rift.

The film will feature several different settings, including a military training camp, a crowded expo hall, and a beach. Each scene has been filmed using a special VR-enabled camera to capture a complete 360 degree scene.

Microsoft Launches Surprise Free Xbox One Game for 8 Players (or More)

GameSpot's PC Reviews - 6 hours 15 min ago

It's always fun when a newly announced game at an event like E3 is released immediately; there's just something nice about bucking the usual trend of announcing a game months or years before its release. Today, Microsoft did just that, launching a new, unannounced Xbox One game--and you can get it right now for free.

Voice Commander is the creation of Microsoft Garage, an internal group of Microsoft employees and interns from various disciplines who are given the chance to tackle various projects. VC is described as a space-themed hybrid of real-time strategy games and top-down shooters.

You play using a combination of controllers and Kinect voice controls to stop attacks against Earth. Up to eight players can do so using controllers, and any number of players can contribute using voice commands, making it an ideal game for the Duggars or people with much bigger groups of friends (and apartments) than me.

The 370 MB game is available right now on the Xbox Store. You can check out a handful of screenshots in the gallery below (click for a full-size view).

This is just one of several Microsoft Garage projects unveiled today. As CNET reports, others include non-gaming apps for Android devices, including one that lets you twist your wrist as an alternative to the "OK Google" voice command.

Xbox One Getting Screenshot Feature In 2015; Microsoft Explains Delay

GameSpot's PC Reviews - 6 hours 35 min ago
2700072-xboxonescreen.jpg

Microsoft remains committed to introducing functionality to Xbox One that lets you take screenshots, but the company now says getting this up and running is proving tricky. As a result, Microsoft isn't going to roll this feature out until sometime in 2015, Xbox boss Phil Spencer says.

"As we come back into the new year, we'll see new stuff, and screenshots is on the list," Spencer told IGN.

Shadow of Mordor has a photo mode, but it's limited on Xbox One

Back in May, Spencer revealed that the ability to take screenshots on Xbox One was one of the features Microsoft engineers were working to deliver through a future update. One of the reasons why we haven't seen this feature yet is because it's "a little more technically challenging" than Spencer first imagined.

"Two weeks ago, [Microsoft engineers] think they've found a good solution for screenshots. They're working on it. They know people want it," he said. "The team has a path to getting it done, and now it's just prioritizing."

By comparison, the PlayStation 4 has allowed users to take and share screenshots since launch in November 2013. The Xbox One's lack of screenshot functionality has put a damper on some game functionality, as Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor's Photo Mode is significantly limited on Xbox One.

Also in the interview, Spencer said Xbox One owners should expect December's system update to be smaller than previous ones. "In December, it's probably a time for us to pause for a little bit and settle just as all the new consoles are coming online," he said.

Finally, Spencer stressed that Microsoft is still looking to improve install times for Xbox One games, noting that this is a personal priority of his.

October's Xbox One update launched last week, bringing with it new features such as a Gamerscore leaderboard for friends and smoother Snap Mode navigation. Meanwhile, November's update will introduce custom background support and will let you post video clips directly to Twitter.
