    • The War Z is back on Steam

      5 years ago


      After the controversial fallout from the first time Hammerpoint Interactive's The War Z launched on Steam, things have settled and the dust has cleared. Hammerpoint wants to try again and they have announced that The War Z is now available on Steam, again.

      For those who don't remember, The War Z originally released back in October to a lot of controversy, which resulted in gamers doing their bid and trying to get the game removed from Steam because the game wasn't up to par. The controversy kicked up enough of a storm to cause Hammerpoint to issue a public apology.

      Well, things have finally turned around and it was noted in a news post on the Steam store that The War Z is now back up and available for purchase from Valve's digital distribution service. The game carries a $14.99 price tag and sports additional purchasing options for cash shop goods.

      It should be worth noting that despite the changes to the page to better reflect the state of the game, The War Z still has a Metacritic score of 23 out of 100. I know a lot of gamers don't bother using Metacritic as a gauge for whether a game is good or not, but the poor player reception and continuous streams of clandestine measures taken to protect the product really should be taken into consideration before giving these guys any money.

      On the bright side, DayZ's standalone is currently undergoing limited stress testing and something more playable should be made available soon.

    • Assassin's Creed 4 Release Day Leaked

      5 years ago


      The release date for Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag was accidentally revealed through the game's website due to a glitch. Ubisoft has since removed the date but not before gamers saw it.


      AC4 will be launching on October 29th. That day is a Tuesday so it might only apply to North America. Europe will presumably receive the game on Friday, November 1st.


      Ubisoft announced AC4 for the Xbox 360, PS3, PC, and Wii U yesterday. The official website - before it was edited - mentions that the game will be coming to next-gen consoles as well. The vagueness there is probably due to the fact that the next Xbox hasn't been formally announced yet.


      The revised website now has a countdown to Monday. On that day, we'll find out a lot more about the game. We'll also get to see the first trailer.


      AC4: Black Flag focuses on piracy in the Caribbean. Ubisoft stated previously that the game features a different hero and setting than other AC games.

    • Assassin's Creed 4 Official Trailer Released

      5 years ago


      The first trailer for Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag has arrived a couple days earlier than expected. The CGI trailer introduces Captain Edward Kenway, the main character of the new open-world assassination game.


      Captain Edward Kenway is an English pirate and a member of the Assassin's Order. He's the grandfather of Assassin's Creed 3 protagonist Connor. Edward's a young man in this trailer, so this game is probably sent in the late 17th century or early 18th century.


      In the trailer, Edward commands a pirate ship in the Caribbean. All the while, he performs his Assassin duties. Presumably he keeps that side of himself a secret from most of his crew. That could create some interesting storyline opportunities.


      The end of the trailer confirms the previously leaked release date of October 29th. It also reveals that pre-ordering Black Flag through GameStop will earn you a special poster designed by comic book artist Todd McFarlane.


      AC4 has been announced for the PS3, Xbox 360, PC and Wii U thus far. The trailer mentions it's coming to next-gen consoles as well.
