24 Mar

Changes are coming to Street Fighter 5, and Capcom is giving everyone a chance to give them a go next week.

Capcom has announced that some big changes are coming to Street Fighter 5, particularly to the Capcom Fighters Network (CFN).

The publisher said it’s been working hard to address connectivity issues players have been running into since launch, and has now completely rebuilt the CFN for a better online experience.

In order to test it out, Capcom is making Street Fighter 5 free to play on Steam from March 28 to April 3. The beta client will be separate from the main game, and will only include access to the game’s online modes.

Existing players’ CFN username and other stats will carry over to the beta, whereas new players will get to create CFN logins. All of the game’s fighters will be unlocked, including post-launch characters. Anything earned during the beta, as well as stats recorded, will be wiped after April 3.

This build will also come with the season 2 balance adjustments, which is good news for competitive players. Capcom detailed a list of improvements players should see with the new CFN, check out the full thing at the link.

The beta kicks off, only on Steam, at 1pm PT, 4pm ET, 8pm GMT on Tuesday, March 28. It wraps up at 12pm PT, 3pm ET, 7pm GMT on Monday, April 3.

Resident Evil 7 cut content: zombies who reacted to breathing, the Bakers pet dog Diane

23 Mar

Capcom has released the first in a series of “making of” videos for Resident Evil 7, chronicling the game’s development

In the video, titled Making Of Part One: Beginning Hours, the team behind Resident Evil 7 discuss the game’s conception along with various ideas which ultimately didn’t make it into the game.

According to director Koshi Nakanishi, one thing which didn’t make the cut, which he wished would have been kept, was the Baker Family’s dog, Diane. She was originally part of the dinner scene, before eventually being pulled at some point during development.

Executive producer Jun Takeuchi said in the video one of the game’s zombie prototypes would have reacted to human breathing. It order for the player to make their way around it, they would have had to hold their breath using a controller button.

A breath gauge would pop up showing the player how much breath they had left. Once the player ran out of breath and had to take one, if they zombie heard them, they’d grab the player and the fight would be on.

This prototype was cut due to testers tensing up and holding their own breath during these segments.

“It was a great idea on paper but we ditched that because we thought doing that for 15 hours would give people hypoxia.”

It’s a really interesting video and you should give it a watch. Once Part 2 is available, we’ll be sure to post it.

Resident Evil 7 is available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

For Honor and Resident Evil 7 top US charts in February

17 Mar

For Honor came out on top during February in the US, despite having been out for only 12 days.

for_honor_gamescom_2016_screen_1

The NPD Group has published its full report for February 2017, covering the US retail (and some digital stores) gaming business. Last week, we learned that PS4 came out on top during the month.

Now, we get to take a look at the software side of the business. The report shows data tracked until February 25.

Overall, all segments tracked showed a decline. $724 million in revenues were generated by the industry in the period, a 21% drop year-over-year from $918.7 million. Console software generated $344.2 million, thanks to new releases, but it wasn’t enough to beat the $402 million from the same period last year.

For Honor was the best selling game of the month, despite having only been out for 12 days before the report’s cutoff date. The game topped the list for both consoles, too.

Nioh was the other new entry on the list, landing at no.9. Halo Wars 2 did not manage to break the top ten, but it did earn the no.6 spot on the Xbox One’s best selling list.

Here’s the top ten overall that month:

  • For Honor
  • Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
  • Grand Theft Auto 5
  • NBA 2K17
  • Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
  • Rainbow Six: Siege
  • Madden NFL 17
  • Battlefield 1
  • Nioh
  • Overwatch

Top ten PS4 games

  • For Honor
  • Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
  • Grand Theft Auto 5
  • Nioh
  • NBA 2K17
  • Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
  • Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue
  • Battlefield 1
  • Madden NFL 17
  • Rainbow Six: Siege

Top ten Xbox One games

  • For Honor
  • Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
  • Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
  • Grand Theft Auto 5
  • NBA 2K17
  • Halo Wars 2
  • Rainbow Six: Siege
  • Battlefield 1
  • Madden NFL 17
  • Overwatch

Horizon: Zero Dawn is not on the list because it released after the report’s data was collected, but will no doubt show up next month. We’re also expecting some data on how the Switch launch went in the US in March’s report.
