Xbox Store Today: CoD Infinite Warfare, Atari Flashback Classics Vol 1 & Vol 2, Gas Guzzlers Extreme

We’re going back to the past and forward to the future (while also going back to the past) in today’s Xbox Games Store update.

Infinity Ward is taking the Call of Duty franchise into a far-flung future with sci-fi-style weaponry, cyborgs, and space battles in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare for the Xbox One. But if you’re someone who’s looking for something a little more familiar, the developer has also worked hard to produce Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, a bonus game included in Infinite Warfare’s pricey Legacy Edition.

If you’d rather go further back, Atari has released two new collections of Atari 2600 classics for the Xbox One… Atari Flashback Classics Volume 1 and Atari Flashback Classics Volume 2. Both packages include 50 different titles, with Combat, Centipede, Swordquest, and Star Raiders included in Volume 1, and Asteroids, Haunted House, Adventure, and Major Havoc in Volume 2.

Finally this week, Gas Guzzlers Extreme is now available for the Xbox One and it features the type of car combat that was all the rage back in the late 90s. Oh, and there’s also zombies for some reason.

More information on all of these games can be found after the break. (more…)

CoD: Infinite Warfare, BlazBlue: Central Fiction, Destroy All Humans, more added to PS Store

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare will report for PS4 duty on the PlayStation Store this Friday. Activision and Infinity Ward tapped Game of Thrones actor Kit Harrington to portray “The Face of the Enemy” in their interstellar war, and don’t that the Legacy Edition will also include a copy of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered.

Also available to download this week is BlazBlue: Central Fiction, the latest 2D fighter from Arc System Works. This time around, 35 characters will battle it out on the PS4 and PS3.

Finally this week, THQ Nordic will bring back the Destroy All Humans! series with a PS2-On-PS4 re-release of the first game in the series, Destroy All Humans!

More information on all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break. And don’t forget that a full list of this week’s new add-ons and discounts is available at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)

New Retail Releases: CoD Infinite Warfare, Mario Party Star Rush, SteamWorld Collection, More

newreleases103016

After the Battlefield franchise brought the fight all the way back to World War I, Activision decided to take the Call of Duty series even further into the future with this week’s release of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Developer Infinity Ward has fully embraced the science fiction genre this time around with lasers, robots, space battles, and a whole lot more.

This pivot to the future shouldn’t be that surprising as the Call of Duty franchise first broke through in a big way with the release of 2007’s Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. PS4 and Xbox One owners will get a chance to relive that seminal entry in the entry if they purchase Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare – Legacy Edition, which includes access to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered.

A different kind of war will take place this week in Mario Party: Star Rush for the 3DS. Nintendo’s series of Mario-themed board games has always provided plenty of multiplayer shenanigans, and Star Rush will likely be no different.

Finally this week, a handful of games that were previously only available as digital downloads will be released in special retail version this week. Image & Form will package together SteamWorld Dig and SteamWorld Heist in SteamWorld Collection for the PS4 and Wii U. 13AM Games will release a Runbow: Deluxe Edition for the Wii U. And Bandai Nacmo will bring Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 + Arcade Game Series to the Xbox One.

The full list of this week’s new releases can be found after the break. (more…)

Activision has deployed Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered’s Launch Trailer

One of the most-popular and best-reviewed games in the Call of Duty franchise, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, will receive a remastered release this November, but Activision wants to start getting excited now. Yesterday, the publisher deployed a Launch Trailer for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, and it hits all the high points.

PS4 players who pre-ordered the Digital Deluxe Edition or the Legacy Edition of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare will be able to download Modern Warfare’s single-player Campaign on October 5. Sadly, they’ll have to wait until November 4 to jump back into the game’s multiplayer.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered will also be available on the PC and Xbox One for players who purchase the Digital Deluxe Edition or the Legacy Edition of Infinite Warfare. As of right now, Activision doesn’t have any plans to sell Modern Warfare Remastered as a standalone, but that could always change in the future.

A new Story Trailer for CoD: Infinite Warfare introduces us to Kit Harrington’s “Face of the Enemy”

As we’ve all come to expect, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare‘s cast will feature a few famous faces when it launches for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One this November. This time around, Kit Harrington (Game of Thrones) and Conor McGregor (a UFC Champion) will be on hand to cause trouble for our heroes (lead by noted voice actor Brian Bloom as Captain Nick Reyes).

Harrington and McGregor certainly get to look imposing in the new Story Trailer as the leaders of the Settlement Defense Front, a terrorist group that wants to invade Earth. Also keep your eyes peeled for plenty of explosions, some space-fu, and all the gung-ho military dialogue you could ever ask for:

After a simultaneous surprise attack on UNSA forces in Geneva and the Moon Port Gateway, Captain Nick Reyes must take the helm of the Retribution, one of Earth’s last remaining warships. In a time of unthinkable adversity, Reyes must lead his trusted crew against the relentless Settlement Defense Front’s plans to dominate all who oppose them.

The freedom of every citizen of Earth is at stake.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare will be released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on November 4.

It’s Official… PS4 Slim to be released next week and PS4 Pro in November

ps4-header

I’m not sure Sony was ever trying to keep the PS4 Slim and PS4 Pro a secret, but today the consolemaker announced full technical specs, price, and release date for the new models.

The PS4 Slim will arrive first, and it’ll actually be available on store shelves beginning September 15. Priced at $299, the PS4 Slim will include a 500GB Hard Drive and a considerably lighter profile:

The internal architecture of the new PS4 system has been revamped, reducing its volume by more than 30% compared to the previous models and reducing its weight by 25% and 16% compared to the first (CUH-1000 series) and current (CUH-1200 series) models respectively. Also, the new PS4 system is more energy efficient, as the power consumption has been cut by more than 34% and 28% compared to the very first and current models.

But the real star of the show was the PS4 Pro, which will launch on November 10. Priced at $399, the PS4 Pro will deliver an “enhanced experience” with a 1TB Hard Drive, support for High Dynamic Range (HDR) image processing (the PS4 Slim will also include HDR support), and 4K image resolution:

By boosting the performance and capability of the system architecture including the CPU and GPU, PS4 Pro allows games to deliver graphics with far more detail and unprecedented visual precision. Users with 4K TVs will be able to enjoy all PS4 titles in higher quality, such as 4K quality resolution and faster or more stable frame rates. In addition, PS4 Pro supports 4K video playback to deliver 4K streaming video services such as Netflix and YouTube.

The PS4 Pro will upconvert all PS4 games to 1080p, and according to the PlayStation Blog, some high-profile games will be further enhanced for the PS4 Pro including Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Horizon: Zero Dawn, Mass Effect: Andromeda, and Days Gone. But Sony was quick to reiterate that they have no plans to release any PS4 Pro-exclusive titles.

However, unlike the Xbox One S, the PS4 Pro won’t include a 4K UHD Drive for playback 4K UHD movies.

But the PS4 Pro is still an impressive package and it’ll be interesting to see if these higher-end mid-generation systems will be embraced by the gaming community.

CoD: Infinite Warfare Multiplayer Trailer is here… along with the announcement of a PS4 beta and an exclusive PlayStation VR mission

The first Multiplayer Trailer for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare puts its focus on the many different Combat Rigs that players can wear into battle. From the “Mid-Range Assault” classification of the Warfighter Rig to the “Assassin” capabilities of the FTL Rig, these suits will give players plenty of options in Infinite Warfare’s multiplayer mode. Though players could also decide to dress down and go full-robot with the Synaptic Rig.

In addition to unveiling the first Multiplayer Trailer, Activision also confirmed that a beta test for Infinity Warfare will begin on October 14 for PS4 players who pre-ordered the game. An Xbox One beta test will be held at a later date.

Finally, Activision revealed that PS4 players will also get the chance to try out “Jackal Assault,” a special mission exclusively available for the PlayStation VR that “immerses fans in the cockpit and puts them in control of a Jackal, the personal fighter jet in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.”

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is in development at Infinity Ward and will be released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on November 4.

Activision unveils first Multiplayer Trailer for CoD: Modern Warfare Remastered; All 16 multiplayer maps to be available by end of year

Publishers and developers from all over the world took over Seattle this weekend to party it up at PAX West, one of the biggest gaming conventions on the calendar. Rather than join them, Activision set up their own gaming convention in Los Angeles to celebrate the past, present, and future of the Call of Duty franchise.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered hits all three rather nicely, and Activision used this weekend’s Call of Duty XP event to unveil the game’s first Multiplayer Trailer, which has been embedded above. Ten multiplayer maps from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered will be included in the game when it launches this Fall, and Activision has also promised that the remaining six maps will be made available (at no additional cost) by the end of the year.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered will be available for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on November 4, but you can only get it if you purchase the Digital Deluxe Edition or Legacy Edition of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
