All new gameplay for Ubisoft’s For Honor title has hit so give it a watch above. For Honor is headed to PS4, XBOX One and PC (with a possible NX version as well). Enjoy the 11 minute gameplay footage for For Honor and let us know what you think…. I still don’t know what to make of this game.
During Ubisofts E3 2016 press conference, it was announced that Ghost Recon Wildlands will be releasing in March 2017. The game looked mighty impressive during the press conference and is headed a number of home consoles (fingers crossed for an NX version). I was impressed last year when they showed Ghost Recon Wildlands and this year is no different. I wish that I would be playing the game this year BUT it should turn out pretty good.
What do you think? Does Ghost Recon Wildlands catch your fancy?

I do have to say that Destiny has been supported a ton and it’s very nice to see such support for the game. Will you be picking this up?

Enjoy the reveal video (you will have to fast forward 14 minutes for the gameplay though).
A slew of new Overwatch details have arrived, so be sure to check out the highlights below:
There’s a big discussion about how the ranked mode works (which is still targeting the end of June). It’s now a system where you can rank up and down. The game will try to match you by skill, and at equal party sizes. The seasons will last about 2.5 months.
There will be more information about the new maps and heroes coming starting a bit later into the Summer.
They’re already working on updates all the way through to early next year so they have a steady rate of new content, though they’re open to changing the rate based on community feedback.
The first few new heroes will be released one at a time since beta players reacted very negatively to three being released at once.
Jeff confirms Sombra is real and that we haven’t found all the hints in the game about her yet. Presumably she’s the first new hero coming.
They’re open to the idea of Xbox and PlayStation players playing together, but have made no progress on this topic as of yet.
Jeff notes that the server runs at a tick rate of 60, though that the client could be updated to run at 60 as well if more people are willing to test it in the custom game mode. Currently it doesn’t work for about 20% of their player base and they need more people to test it before it can be rolled out to Quick Play. He does say most of the killed around corner issues are from latency though, and not the tick rate.
McCree’s Fan The Hammer damage is getting nerfed so that it doesn’t kill tanks, definitely kills lightweight heroes, and maybe kills medium health heroes.
D.Va is either going to get a damage buff (mostly in terms of lowering the rate at which damage drops off over distance) or survivability buff, but not both. They’re testing both options currently. This will be later than the McCree nerf, which sounds like it’s soon.
Here is an all new teaser trailer for the recently announced Battlefield 1. The world reveal trailer (or the full trailer) for the game will hit next week on June 12th. Even though this is only 15 seconds long, it does have me excited to see what Battlefield 1 will bring to the table in terms of multiplayer action…
Keep it here for more Battlefield 1 news and gameplay.
This just in, Overwatch, the recently released team based FPS, has now sold over 7 million copies. Players have logged on for more than 119 million hours combined in one of the most successful global game launches of all time—and the battle is just getting started. Here is the official word regarding Overwatch’s tremendous success:
IRVINE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The world needs heroes, and citizens from London to Xi’an to Rio de Janeiro are rising to the occasion to join the ranks of Overwatch®! Blizzard Entertainment’s critically acclaimed team shooter launched worldwide on PlayStation®4, Xbox One, and Windows PC on May 24, and since then more than 7 million players have fought for the future inOverwatch, logging more than 119 million hours combined in one of the most successful global game launches of all time—and the battle is just getting started.*
“Over the months and weeks leading up to release we saw a lot of love and support for Overwatch—from Blizzard gamers, FPS fans, and people who’d never picked up a game like this before—and we’re very grateful for everyone’s incredible passion and enthusiasm,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “We poured a lot of effort into creating a game—and a new universe—that anyone could enjoy. We’re ecstatic to have had such a successful launch, and we’re looking forward to all of the fun, competition, and new content still to come.”
Since launch, players have swapped heroes 326 million times and teamed up to deliver 11 million payloads to their destinations on the battlefields of tomorrow. In addition to being a smash with players around the world, Overwatch is a critical hit, and is one of the best-reviewed games of the year. GameSpot has called Overwatch “something spectacular,” while Forbes wrote that “Overwatch, quite simply, is a miracle” and that it’s “a game for everyone.” According to Game Informer, “Overwatch is an amazing experience,” concluding in its 10-out-of-10 review that “things will never be the same.”
Here is the the launch trailer for Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst. That…Is…All… Oh and by the way, the game looks outstanding. I am s pleased they decided to revisit Mirror’s Edge as a franchise and am interested to see how this performs at retail. I know there are a TON of people who fell in love with the first one but that doesn’t necessarily equate to great sales. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that this does decent at retail as the gaming community needs games like this.
Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst heads to PS4, XBOX One and PC.
To say that I have been impressed with the Overwatch Animated shorts would be a HUGE understatement! I think they are masterfully done and I cannot wait to see more.

Overwatch is set to release on May 24 on PC, PlayStation 4, or Xbox One.
