Judas game trademark filed by Rockstar parent company Take-Two

30 Apr

While we wait on a new Red Dead game, Rockstar’s parent company has trademarked something called Judas.

caravaggio_taking_of_christ

Judas game trademark filed by Rockstar parent company Take-Two

Take-Two’s USPTO trademarks 87011337 and 87011340 cover the standard online game, websites and music filing. Trademarks for Judas were also filed last week in Europe.

A domain for Judas The Game was also registered by MarkMonitor, a brand protection agency Rockstar has used in the past per Gamespot.

Of course, the most famous Judas Iscariot in history was one of the 12 Disciples. According to the bible, he betrayed Jesus for 30 silver pieces. It is rather unlikely Rockstar would be developing a game based on a story from the bible, though.

T2 has other developers under its umbrella, and the trademark doesn’t mention a studio.

Since the death of the Nazarian 2,016 years ago, Judas has been a term used for false friends, or backstabbers if you will. So the game could be about a betrayer of sorts. Who knows at this point.

Rockstar’s parent company Take-Two reiterated in February it has new IP and a “number of unannounced” titles in the works. The company will host a call to investors on May 18, so maybe company CEO Strauss Zelnick will shock us all by mentioning what this new game is in passing.

More likely, Take-Two will hold out for E3 2016. Zelnick said the firm would “be there in a big way.”

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare teaser video wants you to Know Your Enemy

30 Apr

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare has been teased, and the fellow in the video says he and his mates will “rip you from the history books.”

call_of_duty_infinite_warfare

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare video teaser wants you to Know Your Enemy

That’s according to the Know Your Enemy hype video released on the official Call of Duty YouTube channel this afternoon. The transmission is so garbled we can’t understand which faction the angry fella is part of – maybe someone else can make it out – but his uniform bears a SDF logo. I think he says Settlement Defense Front. Can’t be sure.

A new logo and new artwork are also present on the channel. The banner’s file name is “GenesisReveal_SDF_” if that means anything to you. It’s posted below the video.

Earlier this week, a Target add outed Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, and a PS Store popped up online. It showed a Legacy Edition of the new game that will include a remaster of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.

A higher-resolution, Canadian version of the same poster appeared online yesterday.

Previous rumors regarding the title state the shooter is set in the far future and features space combat between “warring sci-fi groups.”

Activision will reportedly announcement Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare on Tuesday, May 3.

Thanks, AGD.

Dark Souls 3: banned PC players warned of stranger danger over rampant cheating

30 Apr

Cheating in Dark Souls 3 on PC has become such a huge problem that innocent players are being tossed into the same lot for “taking candy from strangers.”

Dark Souls 3: banned PC players warned of stranger danger over rampant cheating

Bandai Namco is cracking down on cheaters in Dark Souls 3, and while that’s a good thing, it’s punishing those who aren’t cheating.

Last week, the company said some of the more recent bans were made in error, but a new problem has since presented itself.

According to MCV, many users have reported receiving an Invalid Game Data message upon logging in. Modification of save data, an external file, an exploit or cheat cause the message to appear once the Dark Souls 3 server team has detected any alterations.

The user account is then flagged for investigation, and the warning message will continue to be displayed until the server team has determined whether or not a violation of the End User License Agreement (EULA) has occurred.

“At that point the account/profile will either have restrictions placed on it (to limit the online interactions during multiplayer sessions and a further penalty message of “You have been Penalized” issued) or the “Invalid Game Data” warning message removed,” reads the Knowledgebase.

“During the time that the warning message is displayed the end user will have a chance to completely remove any such external files, mods, cheats/hacks or delete their game save.”

As it stated above, players are given time to find the issue causing the message to pop up. This becomes massive headache though when players who have put in hours upon hours in the game. Where in the game did the team find the invalid data? Was it 20 hours ago or 100 hours ago. Better grab some Tylenol. You’ll need it.

Namco isn’t being clear on what it considered invaild data along with cheat software. But it is also punishing players who have picked up a “gift” left by another player. If it is a hacked item left by another player, the receiving player is flagged. Item swapping was also a feature in Dark Souls 2, and it can be hard to detect whether an item you pick up in Dark Souls 3 is hacked. Unless you know the player, it would be best to mentally revisit the whole stranger danger talk you were given as a child.

“Due to the apparent risk of ‘taking candy from strangers’, it is recommended that players should always back up their save data to an online service (such as cloud saves) or as a direct back-up of the save file to a separate folder/directory (for PC/Steam),” states the Knowledgebase.

“This would allow any players who; end up receiving a hacked item/equipment unknowingly from an online player, the ability to restore their original game data from the cloud or separate backed up game data.”

A Bandai Namco spokesperson further clarified to Kotaku how players could back their saves up.

“Back up a clean save to either USB or cloud storage. If you encounter a hacker that corrupts your character delete the local save and download the clean backup save data,” said the spokesperson.

“The next time you connect to the server it should clear your account of any flags that deemed you as cheating because your backed up save file from before does not have the item from the invader that caused the problem.”

Some who have received the Invalid Game Data message and deleted the save data, or reloaded the data from a different location, have claimed to have been soft banned or all out banned. It sounds like a huge mess, honestly.

Reddit user OutcastMunkee has posted various ways in which to save the game’s data as well.

Many players are scratching their heads over the situation. Those who haven’t used cheat software, or picked up “candy from strangers,” have speculated whether third party controller software one cause. Others think it may be a program which forces a borderless windows mode or the game itself could be causing the issue when it crashes.

There are plenty of discussion on the matter over on reddit and the Steam forums, but these two links should get you started.

The Division: what’s the best Marksman Rifle? The High End First Wave M1A

30 Apr

There are many different weapon options in The Division, but if you are a Marksman, you’ll want to use this one.

the_division_high_end_first_wave_m1a

According to our Division expert Arekzz, the High End First Wave M1A is the best weapon a marksman can use in-game at the moment.

It has a nice sized magazine, a fast fire rate, and “hits like a truck.” Basically, it pulls some of the best options from other Marksman rifles and puts them all in one package.

The High End First Wave M1A can be acquires from a couple of different sources. It can drop during the Russian Consulate Mission with a 183 Gear Score once the player defeats Hornet.

It can also be purchased as a blueprint from a Dark Zone vendor in one of the Safe Rooms. Players will need to be DZ Rank 75 to purchase the blueprint.

Since the blueprints are rotating, this particular one was last made available during the first week of the April update. Rotations occur every Saturday, except this week, so be sure to keep an eye out.

Arekkz goes into more detail on the weapon below, so give it a watch.

Here’s the first look at Space Hulk: Deathwing gameplay

30 Apr

The first video to feature Space Hulk: Deathwing gameplay has been released by Focus Home Interactive.

space_hulk_deathwing_1space hulk deathwing

Here’s the first look at Space Hulk: Deathwing gameplay

This trailer introduces the basics of the game such as the premise, teammates, localized damage system, and some of the enemies.

The first-person shooter set in Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40,000 universe is an adaptation of the Space Hulk board game, developed on Unreal Engine 4 by Streum On Studio, the team behind E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy.

As a Librarian accompanied by a Terminator squad, players will explore and fight inside these mammoth, derelict Warhammer 40,000 ships solo or cooperatively with friends.

These include a large battle-barge belonging to the Black Templars, as well as a vessel from the Adeptus Mechanicus.

Inside these ships players will shoot it out with an army of Genestealer while recovering relics within the ships and asteroids composing the Space Hulk.

Players will have access to a wide assortment of weapons, skills, and powers taken directly from Warhammer 40K lore.

Space Hulk: Deathwing will release later this year on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Final Fantasy 14 Update 3.3 Revenge of the Horde includes new dungeons, housing additions

30 Apr

The next content update for Final Fantasy 14 will include the Aquapolis dungeon, housing updates and much more.

final_fantasy_14

Final Fantasy 14 Update 3.3 Revenge of the Horde to include new dungeons, housing additions

During Naoki Yoshida’s latest Letter from the Producer Live, some of the contents of Patch 3.3 Revenge of the Horde, were detailed with more information to be released in the weeks to come.

The patch will include the final chapter of the Dragonsong War and will introduce new beast tribe quests involving moogles and dragons. The developers are keeping the quest area “secret” for the time being.

Side quests will include the continuation of the Anima weapon series and more Hildibrand adventures will be added. Sohr Khai will be part of the main scenario quest series.

Two new dungeons will be available in patch 3.3 such as the Deep Dungeon – The Palace of the Dead. As players delve deeper into this dungeon, the environment will change and there will be bosses to fight. Some “special” bosses will also appear on multiple floors.

There will be duty finder matchmaking for the area and balanced based on four players. It can be played solo, but will be a great challenge. Players who fail to reach the next check point before defeat will have to start over from the last autosave. The special weapons, one of which can be seen glowing a screenshot below, can be taken out of the dungeon and used other content.

The ability to upgrade weapons as the dungeon is “challenged” will be added, and along with items which can only be used inside this dungeon.

Another new dungeon, the Aquapolis, will appear randomly when players uncover a Dragonskin Map. Once the entrance appears, those who enter the structure will find the layout “isn’t random” but finding the final room will take some luck. This is battle content and not gathering-related, so prepare to fight.

New trials, including an Extreme version, will be added and the next phase of the Void Ark alliance raid series is The Weeping City of Mhach. As with the The Palace of the Dead, the deeper the raid area is explored, the more the environment will differ. Magic is being used as an energy source here and players will be tasked with climbing a large pyramid.

The raid finder will allow players to set various requirements to join in, specific details such as practice or clear can be denoted.

Hullbreaker Isle (Hard) has been taken over by Maelstrom and turned into a “training ground of sorts.” Players will still be able to fight the octopus.

A new map will be introduced for Frontlines, known as Field of Glory, and the rules will be similar to those of Seal Rock.

New housing additions and features are also planned with patch 3.3. These include more plots and flowerpots. New flowers will be introduced and these can only be grown in pots. Their colors can be changed, but crossbreeding by placing pots next to each other won’t be an option as the flowerpots aren’t part of gardening.

Finally, Yoshida said the team is still looking into adding a Cross World Party Finder. He said it will be a bit tricky since players will want to chat beforehand and discuss strategies.

“I think we can make it happen for Patch 3.5 based on the work that would need to be done for it,” he said. “We’re currently creating lobbies for cross-world Triple Triad and other Gold Saucer games to make them more accessible.”

A release date was not provided for Final Fantasy 14 update 3.3 Revenge of the Horde, but more information as well as plot pricing will be be made available on the Lodestone soon. A Yo-Kai Watch in-game item collaboration is also in the works.

Elite Dangerous: Horizons heads to Xbox One in Q2

30 Apr

Elite Dangerous: Horizons players on Xbox One can expect the first major content drop to arrive in Q2 2016.

elite_dangerous_horizons

Elite Dangerous: Horizons heads to Xbox One in Q2

Horizons will feature both 2.0: Planetary Landings and the forthcoming 2.1: The Engineers expansions, both of which were originally slated for an April release.

The expansion allows players to “journey seamlessly” from space to surface and land anywhere they choose on simulated planets and moons located in the Milky Way galaxy. Upon reaching the surface, players just hop into the all-terrain SRV Surface Recon Vehicle and start exploring.

Engineers brings more personality and personalization by adding a range of customization and crafting options, making every ship in the galaxy unique.

Future gameplay updates will debut for PC and Xbox One simultaneously. These include:

  • Multicrew, allowing teams of players to assume roles aboard the same ship.
  • Commander Creation, giving a unique appearance to players’ in-game avatars.
  • Ship-Launched Fighters, allowing larger spacecraft to carry their own short-range fighter craft for attack and defense.
  • And more to be announced.

Elite: Dangerous players on PC can grab the 2.0: Planetary Landings and the 2.1: The Engineers expansions in May.

Xbox One players can now channel their inner Super Hero or Villain in DC Universe Online

30 Apr

The free-to-play MMO DC Universe Online has made its way onto Xbox One.

dc_universe_online

Xbox One players can now channel their inner Super Hero or Villain with DC Universe Online

All you have to do is hit up the Xbox Games Store like normal, and if you have an Xbox Live Gold account, you’ll be able to jump online and play with like-minded folks.

Xbox One players will also be handed three exclusive items: the Powered-Up Cape, Powered-Up Emblem and Vapor Aura.

Originally released by Sony Entertainment Online for PC and PlayStation 3 2011, the MMO allows players create their own Super Hero or Villain. I played the beta, and I was rather impressed with the fairly extensive set of options. My character looked rather silly – on purpose.

Each hero or villain can also be equipped with various superpowers which can be used to help the citizens of Metropolis, Gotham City and beyond – or cause havoc. I specialized in magic or something to that effect. It’s been ages. I remember shooting lightning, though.

As well as creating their own character, players can also fight as any of 40 available DC Comics characters in Legends PvP and PvE game modes. This includes Batman, Green Arrow, Harley Quinn, Superman, The Flash, The Joker, Wonder Woman and others.

Since release, DCUO has released various ongoing events, stories and challenges along with 20 original Episodes. New content inspired by Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and the TV series DC’s Legends of Tomorrow have been released this year. Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, Darkseid and Gotham Girls are coming this year.

Since it is a F2P game, Episodes, as well as Legends characters and powers, are available to purchase individually or can be accessed through DCUO Membership. Xbox One users will be able to access all content currently available, and in the future, all game updates and marketplace additions are planned to release simultaneously across all platforms.

DC Universe Online is the first title from Daybreak Games, formerly SOE, to be published on Xbox One. The MMO is also available on PS4.
