Doom Beta coming in 2016 but a lucky few will be invited to participate in this Fall’s Alpha

doom-header

QuakeCon is the place to be this weekend. But don’t worry if you couldn’t make it down to Dallas, Bethesda is using their annual game convention to deliver some news on all their upcoming releases.

Bad news for Doom fans who were hoping to get their hands on the Multiplayer Beta before the end of the year, Bethesda has confirmed it’ll take place in 2016. However, they will also be holding a special Alpha Test later this Fall… and you may already be invited.

According to the Bethesda Blog, participants for the Alpha Test will be randomly selected from the list of players who have already registered their Doom Beta code. If you recall, everyone who pre-ordered Wolfenstein: The New Order before its release last year received a Beta invite. If you haven’t already done so, make sure you visit Wolfenstein.com/doom and redeem the Beta code included in the box to gain a chance at entering the Alpha.

Doom will be released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One next Spring. Hopefully, we’ll get another look at the game during this weekend’s QuakeCon.

Warp Zoned’s 2014 Golden Pixel Awards: Honoring Our Favorite Games

wzgoldenpixelawards-header

With the PS4 and Xbox One entering their first full year on store shelves, 2014 turned out to be a bit of a transition year. A lot of games were delayed into 2015 and a few others were delayed even further. With the other two consolemakers taking a step back in 2014, it was Nintendo’s time to shine and the wizards behind the Wii U responded with nearly a dozen major titles. But that doesn’t mean the PS4 and the Xbox One (or the PS3 and Xbox 360, for that matter) went hungry in 2014.

There were plenty of great games to go around last year and you can read all about them as we hand out our annual Golden Pixel Awards… (more…)

June 2014 NPD: Watch Dogs and Mario Kart 8 are the top-selling titles once again

watchdogs-header

Watch Dogs and Mario Kart 8 once again reign supreme over the monthly sales chart as The NPD Group has confirmed the two titles were #1 and #2, respectively, in their June 2014 top-selling games report. The two games were part of a trend that included other May releases such as Minecraft (#3) and Wolfenstein: The New Order (#7).

The only June releases to crack the top ten were EA Sports UFC (#4) and Tomodachi Life (#9),

With Microsoft’s Kinect-less Xbox One hit store shelves in June, so the battle between the next-generation heated up just as the thermometer did. According to Joystiq, the PS4 once again topped the Xbox One, though all console sales more than doubled (a 106% increase, to be exact) the month of May. Ultimate, the entire industry saw a 24% increase in sales over the last month… and that includes a big jump in Wii U hardware sales too.

You can view the complete top ten chart for the month of June after the break. (more…)

watchdogs-header

We were already pretty aware of the fact that a lot of copies of Watch Dogs and Mario Kart 8 were sold in the last week of May. Now, the NPD Group has made it official by releasing their official report of the best-selling games of May 2014.

Not surprisingly, Watch Dogs took the gold while Mario Kart 8 had to settle for the silver. The top ten was populated by several other May releases including Wolfenstein: The New Order (#4) and Kirby: Triple Deluxe (#9). A retail release of Minecraft on the PS3 also pushed that game back into the top five (#5, to be exact).

According to Joystiq, the NPD Group also confirmed that the PS4 has outsold the Xbox One for the fifth straight month. You can view the complete top ten list from the month of May after the break. (more…)

XBL Store Today: Wolfenstein: The New Order, Max: The Curse of Brotherhood

wolfensteintheneworder-header

Today’s update to the Xbox Live Game Store features two games that couldn’t be more different.

Wolfenstein: The New Order is a continuation of the popular first person shooter series for the Xbox One that takes place in an alternate 1960 where Germany won World War II. They control everything… even the moon. Thankfully, B.J. Blazkowicz is back to kill a new generation of Nazis.

Max: The Curse of Brotherhood is a puzzle platformer for the Xbox 360 that was originally released for the Xbox One in December.

Expanded descriptions of both games can be found right here:

Xbox One Games

Wolfenstein: The New Order ($59.99)

PS Store Today: Transistor, Wolfenstein: New Order, Drakengard 3, more

transistor-header

This is the week your PlayStation 4 has been waiting for. OK, maybe it’s just the week that my (hypothetical) PlayStation 4 has been waiting for. Either way, there are two very cool PS4 games available for purchase through the PlayStation Store as of today.

Supergiant’s Transistor is a sci-fi action RPG and the followup to their blockbuster breakthrough, Bastion. If you’d rather blast mecha-enhanced Nazis in the face with a bazooka, you may want to check out Wolfenstein: The New Order. The latest entry in the venerable FPS franchise is the debut project from MachineGames. And from the looks of it, they’re going to be around for a long time.

But if you’re a PS3 owner, don’t worry, there’s plenty more for you this week, including your own version of Wolfenstein: The New Order. However, fans of quirky Japanese RPGs will be most satisfied with this week’s PS3 slate as NIS America released Mugen Souls Z, Square Enix released Drakengard 3, and Atlus re-released Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga.

More information about all of these games and more (including a quintet of import PS1 Classics) can be found after the break. And a complete rundown of this week’s new game add-ons can be found at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)

Continue Countdown #4 – Xbox One Ditches Kinect, Halo 5, Sunset Overdrive, More

Nicole Kline dominated everyone in this episode of “Continue Countdown.” You’ll hear plenty of her big opinions as she, and the rest of the Warp Zoned staff, sat down to discuss Microsoft’s decision to unbundle the Kinect sensor from the Xbox One, Sunset Overdrive‘s less-than-impressive initial trailer, and Halo 5‘s delay.

From there we moved on to the possibility that Wolfenstein: The New Order could spark a resurgence in Doom-style first person shooters (consensus: maybe), what Naughty Dog is working on next (consensus: probably something brand new), and whether or not Dragon Quest X will appeal to an overseas audience (consensus: probably not). The home stretch of this week’s episode asked what we’d like to see from Darksiders III and Rockstar’s next-generation project.

Finally, the episode concluded with the echoing cries of “Why?” as the “Continue Countdown” crew talked about 3D Realms’ Bombshell.

New Releases: Wolfenstein: The New Order, Drakengard 3, Mugen Souls Z, More

newreleases052014

In Wolfenstein: The New Order, the Germans managed to win World War II through a combination of mechs and mutants. Now it’s up to William “B.J.” Blazkowicz to turn the tide and make this alternate 1960 a very Nazi-unfriendly place. Wolfenstein: The New Order was developed by MachineGames and will be available for almost every current platform including the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.

PS3-owning RPG fans will find a pair of interesting new games on store shelves next week as well. Square Enix will bring Drakengard 3 to Sony’s system while NIS America will release Mugen Souls Z.

Finally, a few re-releases round out next week’s batch of new games. First up, Grasshopper’s Killer Is Dead will make its way to the PC as Killer Is Dead: Nightmare Edition. Also next week, Nordic Games will re-release a few of the games they picked up from the THQ auction including the Darksiders Collection on the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360; the Red Faction Collection for the PS3; and Red Faction Complete for the PC.

A complete list of next week’s new releases can be found after the break. (more…)
