King, developers of the popular Candy Crush mobile game saga, has revealed that they are working on a brand new mobile experience for Call of Duty.

King Digital Entertainment, founded in 2003, was acquired and is now wholely owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard Inc as of February 2016 for $5.9 billion. When Activision announced the acquisition of King, Activision Blizzard CEO stated that they wanted to expand King’s reach into new opportunities within the Activision Blizzard family. Today, that first opportunity has been revealed.

King Digital has launched a new recruitment website announcing a new studio in Stockholm, Sweden that will focus on bringing Call of Duty to mobile devices.

We are a new King team, located in Stockholm, Sweden, and we’re working on an exciting new project. The team is adapting one of the most iconic game franchises of all-time: Call of Duty®, to become a mobile experience. This is a rare and exciting opportunity. Our challenge as a team is to create a Call of Duty experience on mobile that will strive to transform the best console experience fans know and love, while also breaking new ground for mobile and redefining the genre. Our approach and ambition is to be fresh, social, and highly accessible, while providing a very authentic game experience. The team will prototype extensively, have the freedom to think outside the box, and be encouraged to stretch their expertise in ways to create surprising results.

On the new recruitment website, King confirms that they are working with Activision to create this game. King has been extremely successful in the mobile division, with Candy Crush saga seeing almost $2 billion in revenue since its launch on mobile. King website says they want to create a Call of Duty experience “that fans will want to play for years.”

To support this project, King currently has a few job openings at their new studio.

King has not announced an expected release time frame for this new mobile game.

Quake Champions is back in the limelight with a look at one of its reimagined maps, and new hero Nyx.


Bethesda have revealed a bunch of new Quake Champions details, ahead of the game’s showing at PAX East this weekend, and the planned closed beta.

Quake Champions, in case you don’t remember, was pitched at E3 2016 as a fast-paced, PC shooter with a modern take on the classic Quake formula that features unique heroes.

Bethesda promised to reveal a few of the game’s heroes from now until the closed beta. Starting with Nyx, which you can see in the trailer above. Nyx is an agile champion that relies on her Ghost Walk ability to move between dimensions. This makes her invisible and immune to damage, and the ability can be used both defensively and offensively.

Nyx’s passive ability is Wall Jump, which is self explanatory. Nyx starts with 100HP, 75 armour, and a speed value of 270.

We also get our first look at Blood Covenant, one of the game’s arenas. Blood Covenant is based on The Camping Grounds (Q3DM6) from Quake 3 Arena. Some of Camping Grounds’ classic sections are intact, including the long jump pad that leads to the rocket launcher, the Quad Damage spawn, and the Railgun ledge.

You can see more of Blood Covenant in the video below. We’ve also included screenshots of Nyx and Blood Covenant for your viewing pleasure.

Quake Champions is due for release this year, but a release date has not yet been announced. In case you missed it, closed beta registration is still open on the official site, where you’ll also find a breakdown of the new champions and maps as they’re revealed.

Battalion 1944 development is moving forward, with Square Enix now signed as a publisher.

Battalion 1944 was among the most talked about Kickstarter campaigns of last year. Developer Bulkhead Interactive pitched a WW2 multiplayer shooter in the vein of classic Call of Duty titles.

The game remains on track for release this year, but a new development was recently announced. Square Enix will be publishing the game, which due for release this summer on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

This is part of the Square Enix Collective, an initiative that was initially designed to help promote Kickstarter campaigns from small developers. Collective has now evolved into a publishing arm of Square Enix. Bulkhead actually worked with the Japanese publisher before on the studio’s sci-fi puzzler The Turing Test.

Bulkhead revealed the partnership in the video above, and promised to show new gameplay footage soon.

If you were holding out hope of ever playing Half-Life 3, we’ve got some bad news for you. According to a Valve insider, both Half-Life 3 and Half-Life 2: Episode Three will never see the light of day.

This information comes to us from a recent Gamer Informer interview with the alleged insider. According to them, “There is no such thing as Half-Life 3. Valve has never announced a Half-Life 3.”

Various teams within Valve have worked on projects that could have become the next Half-Life but never did. The insider pointed out how there were three different versions of Half-Life 2 ready before the final version was produced.

“Over the years,” the source states, “you’ve probably had many dozens of people within the studio as early as probably 2005 working on things that they would imagine for themselves as Half-Life 3 or Half-Life 2: Episode 3.”

“I’ve heard that some teams have had two to three people working on it,” said the source when asked how close Half-Life 3 and Half-Life 2: Episode Three came to being released. “They eventually ran into a wall, and some teams may have gotten up to 30 or 40 people before it was scrapped.”

The insider says that ideas for Half-Life 3 were numerous. This corresponds to rumors of the next Half-Life being a VR game, to featuring characters players can recruit.

“Some are all over the place, from one end of the spectrum being what you would expect – a single-player narrative-focused game – to completely different entertainment ideas that are as wild as they are weird. […] Some were bizarre, like turning Half-Life into an RTS, or a live-action, choice-driven game.”

However, it appears that Valve just isn’t interested in making Half-Life 3. According to the source, even Half-Life 2: Episode Three “isn’t sitting right with [Valve president Gabe Newell] and other people at Valve. Ultimately it just starves to death. What you have left is nothing going on with Half-Life.”

You should do yourself a favor and check out the entire interview since it really is a fascinating piece. Please note that, while Game Informer trusts this insider, that it could not verify these claims with another Valve employee. Make of that what you will.

Shenmue HD should already be a thing, so let’s hope this slim evidence turns out to be precisely what we think it is.

[​IMG]

ShenmueHD.com has been registered by Sega of Europe, according to the domain’s WhoIs record (via Gematsu).

The website is currently blank, but we’re hoping that it means Sega is winding up to announce remasters of Shenmue and Shenmue 2, two games that are far too inaccessible given their cult status.

We know the publisher has been thinking about making it happen. It seemed keen on the idea in October 2015 and again in May 2016.

As Sega said last time the topic came up, there are difficulties bringing Shenmue and its sequel back to market; both contained a stack of licensed products, which means clearing these references out or re-negotiating contracts, and bringing games of this age and complexity to modern platforms in a way that does them justice isn’t easy.

Sega would definitely want to do a good job with Shenmue HD, too – Shenmue 3 is on the horizon, and putting out some shonky ports that remind people of all the bad things and prevent them discovering the good ones would be a sure way to undermine a project Sega is collaborating on and presumably expects to profit from in some way.

Well, cross your fingers for Shenmue remasters: this may just be defensive domain registration.

Red dots in Ghost Recon: Wildlands have multiple uses.

Ubisoft has released a new Ghost Recon: Wildlands live-action trailer that more or less shows the thing they’ve been showing in various trailers before. That is: people camping on a hill miles away spying on gang members through their sniper scopes.

Only this time, there’s a twist: a cat! The trailer starts with one of the Ghosts, a supposed elite combatant, meowing, before he gets a cat to chase the red dot on his sniper rifle. The cat is in the gang hideout they’re surveying, of course, which makes the little animal’s situation very risky.

Absolutely unprofessional behaviour from these supposed elite fighters, let me tell you.

Wildlands is out March 7 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. A beta is expected sometime soon.

PS4 is once again the place to be in 2017, according to the people who have a vested interest in you buying one.

PlayStation has released a hype trailer for its current slate of 2017 PS4 console exclusives.

Many of these 2017 releases don’t yet have confirmed launch dates and some of them seem to have been in the works for so long you’d be forgiven for forgetting all about them. Here’s a short breakdown of what you see in the trailer, in order of appearance.

Gran Turismo Sport probably needs no introduction even if you missed its 2015 announce and then the cancelled beta and delay. Apparently it’s not the next direct Gran Turismo sequel, but it’s not a Prologue, either. Spin-off, I guess?

Hellblade is Team Ninja’s “triple-A indie”, which we had rather expected a bit sooner since it was announced in August 2014. Drawn to Death is the latest from David Jaffe, he of Twisted Metal and God of War fame.

Nier: Automata is the followup to Cavia’s cult-favourite Drakengard spin-off, and comes via Platinum. Alex was very impressed with it and there’s a demo on the PSN now if you want to have a go ahead of its March launch.

Fans of Quantic Dream and David Cage will definitely remember Detroit: Become Human, but if not, it’s that one that looks like a tech demo.

Yakuza 0 finally comes west later this year, continuing Sega’s plodding localisation efforts for a series that does not get enough love.

Farpoint is a VR game that uses PlayStationVR’s weird Aim controller, and Lost Legacy is the upcoming Uncharted 4 story DLC, starring Chloe and Nadine.

Matterfall is Housemarque’s latest, so Super Stardust and Resogun fans should take note. Gravity Rush 2 is the sequel to the Vita classic, thankfully coming to PS4 where someone might actually play it.

Wipeout Omega Collection is, uh, a collection of Wipeout games, and MLB The Show 17 is the annual baseball game. New Everybody’s Golf is a thing that’s happening, apparently; you may know this franchise as Hot Shots Golf because Sony made some bad localisation decisions in the 1990’s we’re still paying for.

Dreams is Media Molecule’s creative suite and its first all-new release since Tearaway in 2013. Pyre comes to us from Supergiant, following on from the critically acclaimed Bastion and Transistor.

Persona 5 ought to be familiar to any and all JRPG fans, and if you’re a Souls fan who hasn’t yet marked Nioh on your calendar it’s time to correct that.

World of Warriors is a free to play title from Mind Candy, while Nex Machina is another Housemarque effort.

Knack 2 is happening for reasons nobody’s very clear on – news I completely forgot about because Parappa the Rapper 20th Anniversary was announced the same day.

Starblood Arena is another VR title, while Horizon: Zero Dawn is probably Sony’s biggest confirmed 2017 release so far – a huge open world action affair from Killzone developer Guerrilla.

So that’s 2017 in PlayStation, apparently – but do remember this is only the console exclusives that have actually been announced to date. It’s going to be a pretty damned busy year when you add in everything else as well.

Want to watch some Resident Evil 7 videos? Of course you do.

[​IMG]

Capcom has released three new gameplay videos of the game providing a look at the creepy mansion the player will be meandering around.

The first video shows protagonist Ethan Winters coming across shovel wielding maniac Jack Baker, which you have seen in previously released videos.

In the second video, we get another look at Aunt Rhody sitting in her wheelchair in a hall corner, before Ethan make his way to the basement – which is never a good idea. Has he ever seen a horror film or watched one of those ghost shows on TV? Bad things hide out in basements more so than attics. Plus, there’s the Molded enemy waiting on him.

Finally, in the third video, it becomes clearer than before that the Baker family home is in serious need of a wrecking ball. And should that ever come to pass, that crazy-ass Marguerite needs to be locked inside. No way out. Die, please.

During PSX 2016 over the weekend, Capcom announced it had released the final update to the Beginning Hour demo, dubbed Midnight. It features new paths to be opened up along with new content such as a handgun, a new enemy, and additional endings.

The demo will be released for PC on December 19.

Alex was also able to try the game out again, and was super pleased he was finally able to shoot stuff.

Resident Evil 7 will be released for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 24.

It was bound to happen. Conan O’Brien was given an early look at Final Fantasy 15, and instead of playing it himself, he hands the controller over to Elijah Wood.

As usual, expect quite a bit of snark, but amusing snark. Especially when the car in the game breaks down, and when Noctis and his “Middle-earth Entourage” wander around the Venice-inspired city of Altissia to gaze upon a wedding dress.

At one point, he becomes frustrated and engages in a mock roughing up of Clueless Gamer’s Aaron Bleyaert.

Of course, more happens than that, but you’ll have to give it a watch but he calls it and “epic, blueballs, waste of time.” And the kicker? Well, skip to the 6:14 mark and see for yourself. Oh dear.

Final Fantasy 15 will be released this month for PS4 and Xbox One on November 29.
