Far Cry 4 has recently been confirmed by Ubisoft via a financial report, and is expected to hit PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC. A release date has also been confirmed, being November 18th. The game takes place in Kyrat, a fictional region of the Himalayas, which also falls under the reign of a self-appointed king. Pre-orders for the game are now available, and those who get in early will receive an upgrade to the Limited Edition, which comes with three single-player missions which focus on Hurk, a character from Far Cry 3. It would be really nice if Ubisoft could follow through on the release date, and not muck it like they did for Watch Dogs, but we will have to wait and see.
Risen 3: Titan Lords has a confirmed release date of August 12th. The roleplaying adventure game will be available for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. Less than a month ago, the developers released a short teaser clip, but now have released a longer video depicting some rather hellish creatures. The original short trailer only featured a hellhound, but the longer one introduces a floating apparition with skeleton’s face and other grim features. The publisher, Deep Silver, has also announced the game features overhauled combat, new animations, and improved magic system. The new trailer can be seen below
Bethesda has confirmed that it is delaying the Xbox One and PS4 versions of The Elder Scrolls Online. The word right now is that the delay will “only” be six months, however delays becoming extended is not uncommon in the gaming world these days. The game’s publisher has stated that it’s been a “challenging process” addressing a number of issues specific to the console versions of its MMO. However, the good news for those who wanted the game on PC or Mac and a next-gen console is that they can buy the game for said console for online $20, if they purchase the PC/Mac version before the end of June. Characters will also be transferable between the two platforms. But how many people really will be buying it for both?
Vertical Drop Heroes HD is due out for PC and Mac on May 20th. Vertical Drop Heroes HD is a randomly generated roguelike title, where players have the option to choose from over 20 traits, 15 abilities and powers, and 16 weapons to do battle with. If you falling solo isn’t your thing, feel free to include a friend via split screen or online-based co-op. Those who are able to defeat the final boss will also unlock the “truth behind the game,” or so the news would have you believe. Vertical Drop Heroes will be available on Good Old Games, Humble Store, and Green Man Gaming, and will reportedly cost $5.
