    Anthem Review

    I’ve played far too many games like Anthem, an online RPG that only makes good on its promise of meaningful multiplayer gameplay and progression after you’ve labored through its long-winded and repetitive story quests. These pitfalls don’t have to be synonymous with shared-world shooters, MMOs, or online ARPGs, but here we are again. Anthem's endgame is surprising fun since its already excellent combat is reinvigorated by interesting loot and challenging gameplay later on. Unfortunately, there simply isn't enough of this kind of content to make it worth the wait, and what's here is inconsistent in terms of polish, clarity, and balance. Anthem, as it stands now, is an adventure best saved for a later date. Continue reading… View the full article
  2. It’s finally time to suit up and start your adventure in the beautiful but dangerous world of Anthem. But before you do, we’d like to go over some of the important elements of the game that will help you get a head start on your fellow Freelancers. Javelins Your Javelin is the key to both combat and movement in Anthem. Its mobility and firepower give you the ability to soar through the air, dive into the murky depths, and take on pretty much anything this world can throw at you. The minute you climb into a javelin you feel unstoppable. So, how soon can you get your hands on a javelin of your very own? You’ll unlock your first at level 2, your second at level 8, your third at level 16, and your fourth at level 26. There are four to choose from, each with its own unique abilities, strengths, and weaknesses. Ranger If you’re looking for the perfect javelin for almost any playstyle, you’ll want to start with the Ranger. It’s versatile, well-balanced, and great for both close and long-range combat. Interceptor Like to get into (and out of) a fight before the enemy even knows what hit them? The Interceptor is the right javelin for you. It’s powerful, agile, and a master of close combat. Colossus If “tank” is your playstyle of choice, this mammoth war machine is calling your name. The Colossus is big, heavily armored, and the only javelin capable of wielding Heavy Weapons. Storm The raw power of a Storm is something to behold. This elegant long-range specialist is a master of the elements with incredible fire, ice, and lightning attacks. You can both customise and personalise your fleet of javelins to suit your needs and style. We’ll cover the details on that in the next two sections. Loadout Now that you’ve got your javelin, it’s time to add gear and weapons, so head to the Forge, your in-game customisation and personalization hub. You can access the Forge via either Fort Tarsis or the Launch Bay; once at one of those locations, select the “Loadout” tab. Let’s start with gear, which can modify aspects of your javelin, like optimizing attack combos, lowering cool-down times, increasing a weapon’s effectiveness, and more. Gear comes in six rarity levels: Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic, Masterwork, and Legendary. At higher rarity levels your gear will also include inscriptions, randomly rolled stat boosts, and bonuses. And Masterwork and Legendary items may also have added ability bonuses. In terms of weapons, you’ll start with only one slot, but as you level up you’ll unlock a second. As soon as it’s unlocked try to select complementary weapons and remember to switch between them in the field by holding the reload button (Square on your controller). This can come in very handy when situations on the ground change, like when an immediate need to snipe a long-distance enemy arises. Appearance You can also personalise your javelin’s look in the Forge by selecting the “Appearance” tab. Note that all the options you’ll find here will only affect how your javelin looks; they’re entirely cosmetic. You can choose from a huge selection, including paint colours, armour wear state, unique patterns you can apply called vinyls, and animations. With so many options available, you may be surprised at how much time you’ll spend in the Forge getting the exact look you want. Traversal You’re armed and your javelin looks amazing, now it’s time to head out into the world for some serious adventure. Whether you’re taking on a dangerous Stronghold (high-level dungeons you’ll need a squad of Freelancers to complete) or just exploring in Freeplay (roaming freely around to collect crafting materials or look for a random fight) you’ll need to understand how to get around. Your javelin gives you the ability to travel through the vertical spaces of your world, and there is nothing quite like flying high above the landscape just taking it all in. How do you get airborne? On your controller click the left stick to soar into the air and control your movement. Want to hover above an area? Click the right stick while airborne. While flying is one of the most incredible experiences in the game, you won’t be able to do it forever. Your javelin will overheat eventually and re-introduce you to the concept of gravity rather abruptly. You can deal with this by pressing the X button to come in for a landing, or by looking for a nearby body of water. Taking a quick dip in a lake or waterfall will give you more time in the air. Start Your Adventure There’s lots more to discover in Anthem – mysteries to uncover, environments to explore, dangers to face – so choose your javelin, suit up, and become the hero this world so desperately needs. Unleash your power on PS4 today. The post Action RPG Anthem takes flight on PS4 tomorrow – here’s your beginner’s guide appeared first on PlayStation.Blog.Europe. View the full article

  4. The skies are about to fill with supply crates as Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds comes to TERA in a 30-day event starting March 5. Players can enjoy PUBG-themed battles and earn PUBG costumes items and other rewards during the TERA × PUBG Crossover event from March 5 through April 5. TERA players of level 60 and higher can quickly jump into the thick of the fray. Every day during the event, for two hours each day, level 70 PUBG popori guardians and soldiers will spawn throughout Northern Arun while supply crates parachute from the air. Smash the crates or beat down the poporis for event rewards of crates, keys, event consumables, and Battle Points, which players can trade in for exclusive PUBG helmets. Need a break from the battle? Hang out in a PUBG-themed Highwatch filled with a fleet of planes and trucks. Log in for at least an hour every day during the event for daily rewards of keys and crates. Earn even more keys, crates, and Battle Points doing what TERA players usually do: battling bosses and completing dungeons. Then spend your hard-earned Battle Points in TERA’s in-game PUBG Shop for two premium permanent helmets and lots of event consumables. PUBG and TERA have always made a great team. Not only do we have the same parent company, but En Masse also has a particular fondness for PUBG: We helped with Alpha testing, PAX support, and even housed Brendon, Shimmer, and Sammie in our offices for several months. (We still talk about Sammie’s six-screen desk setup.) We’re excited to bring our love of PUBG to TERA players on March 5. Winner, winner, PUBG dinner! KitTeaCup out! View the full article

  8. At Mm, we love to give players a way to be a part of the games we make. With Dreams, our ambition from the start was to put all the tools needed to make games in one accessible package – and to allow players to make their creative mark on the world from their living room. We want the community to be able to create in a way that is fun, fast and expressive and see where they take it next. During our Beta we saw players create such an incredible range of things. Clever puzzle platformers, moody first-person adventures, gorgeous interactive paintings, super charming movies and so many other amazing things. Even though it’s what we’d hoped for – we had no idea how ingenious and wonderful the results would be (and our eyes may have watered a little). So, first off we just want to say thank you to everyone who participated in the Beta and for all the wonderful creations you made. As you may know, our small team has been working on Dreams for a long time. Beta was a very important step for us – it confirmed our tool set is ready for the community – but we still have more work to be done in other areas. Every game developer wants their game to be perfect – and we are no different. We have so many ambitions for Dreams and the beta reminded us that Dreams only truly comes to life in the hands of you all – the community. So we scratched our chins and tried to figure out the best way to put the game in the hands of our most enthusiastic dreamers and allow us to continue crafting and polishing it for everyone. And… we have decided to go live and release Dreams into Early Access on PlayStation 4 this spring! OMG, IT’S HAPPENING! What is Creator Early Access? Early Access won’t have everything that the full version of Dreams will, but you’ll get 100% of the same Dreams tools that we have used every day at MM to make our content. As well as fun, deep interactive tutorials catering for all skill sets and levels and Mm-crafted arcade games ready to play and remix. If you joined us during the beta period and published your assets, you’ll also have your beta creations to return to. Along the way, we’ll be adding more features, tutorials, arcade levels and assets during the Early Access period as we build towards the full slate of launch content. Just like with LittleBigPlanet, we have always planned to evolve Dreams with the community and this is just the start. We’ll use Early Access to help us prioritize all the awesome stuff we’re already working on and get feedback as player needs develop and evolve. With refinements, bug fixes and brand new features on the way, we are kicking off the live service side of Dreams so the community can get their first look at how we’ll continue to support the game. In Early Access, you can stream, entertain, teach, collaborate and share to your heart’s content. Who is Early Access for? Early Access is for creators who want to be part of the Dreams experience from the beginning. People who will create, play others creations, get involved in the social features of Dreams and give us feedback. If you are a creator, this is definitely for you. The Dreamiverse needs curators, tastemakers, and testers – this is a great opportunity to carve out your niche. The most important thing is to know that the Dreamiverse is going to form around you, so if that gets you excited, Early Access is for you. If you participated in the beta and felt like Dreams wasn’t fully featured enough for you yet, or you wanted more Media Molecule game content, then Early Access might not be for you. We’re working on all those things during this period so that you have everything you need on your first day in the Dreamiverse. Dreams Early Access is a strictly limited release to ensure that we have a chance to listen to all of you, so be sure to snag your copy as soon as you can! Dreams Early Access will be available digitally through the PlayStation Store this spring, priced at $29.99 MSRP (+ applicable tax) in the US and $39.99 MSRP (+ applicable tax) in Canada. We are very excited about going live this spring and updating you on all the magic happening in Mm Towers. Thank you in advance to everyone who will be coming on this journey with us.

  10. PlayStation fans have been the best we’ve ever had, giving us loads of support and kind words about our previous two games, Home and Alone With You. That’s why we’re incredibly stoked to announce our third title for the PS4 — a dark, thrilling return to the horror genre called Worse Than Death! Twenty-Four Hours of Terror! Worse Than Death is a scary, emotional thriller about a high school reunion that goes horribly wrong. You play Holly, a young woman from a small town in the middle of nowhere. She’s been dragged back to her home for a weekend she’s dreading — and with good reason! Her best friend Flynn has been inconsolable since his fiancée died in an accident, and it seems everyone in town has something to hide — including Holly herself. What follows is the worst night Holly could imagine, as she runs for her life, hides in the shadows, and uses her wits to solve the ever-deepening mystery of her once-peaceful home. A Horror Comic Come to Life! Worse Than Death feels like something right out of the pages of Tales from the Crypt — it’s full of dark secrets, dread and dramatic surprises. And it’s meant to look like a horror comic too; all of the game’s high-res art was drawn by hand on an iPad Pro, so the character portraits, cutscenes and puzzles come to life in dark, vibrant strokes. In keeping with the game’s hands-on aesthetic, we teamed up with Canadian rock-and-roll band The Secrets to include two of their songs in the game (one of which you can hear in the trailer above). The energy they bring to their music fit the game perfectly, bringing out the intensity of the game’s dark, unfolding drama. A Hair-Raising Adventure! So what about the gameplay? Horror games are often slow and contemplative, but we wanted to make a game that got your blood pumping from the get-go. Evading the unseen enemies requires careful use of your environment to hide, crawl and jump to safety, but be warned — make too much noise within earshot, and these unimaginable horrors will track you down. The DualShock4’s light bar, built-in speaker, and rumble features will clue you in to Holly’s heartbeat and the proximity of enemies, in case you’re too scared to look! As a developer, we’re known for rich stories and intriguing mysteries that reveal themselves through our games’ core mechanics. Here, you’ll peel away the game’s plot as you find items, solve adventure-game puzzles and interact with the town’s colorful cast of characters (or, we should say, what’s left of them). Rather than bog you down with reams of text, though, we wanted the story here to be punchy and suggestive; and if you’ve played our previous games, you’ll know we always like to leave a few mysteries for you to take with you… We know “coming soon” isn’t an exact release date, but we mean it! We hope you’ll be quaking in your boots to check out this second entry in our small-town horror saga. View the full article

    Dirt Rally 2.0 Review

    Dirt Rally 2.0 is a first-rate return to the more serious side of Codemasters’ off-road catalogue. It may be hot on the heels of Dirt 4 – with a couple of tricks pulled from its friendlier stablemate – but make no mistake: Dirt Rally 2.0 reasserts this spin-off series’ reputation as the premier rally simulator of the modern era. Dirt Rally 2.0 is designed primarily for hardboiled rally enthusiasts and returning fans, so new players may struggle initially. The original Dirt Rally was eventually augmented with a pile of tutorial videos in time for its jump from PC to console, and Dirt 4 features a fully-fledged Dirt Academy training mode set within the sprawling DirtFish Rally School – a real-life facility based in the US Pacific Northwest.

  14. Publisher: Deep Silver Developer: Codemasters Release: February 26, 2019 Rating: Everyone Reviewed on: PlayStation 4 Also on: Xbox One, PC Efficiency is the goal in rally racing, from your co-driver’s no-nonsense pace notes (while under duress, I might add) to the fix-only-what-needs-fixing-now scramble of repairs between stages. Even when you’re hurtling down a country road in Poland reacting at speed to the semi-unknown, moving the steering wheel only as much as you absolutely need to is the difference between surviving to the next turn and sending yourself into a race-ending skid. This model of efficiency gives Dirt Rally 2.0 focus, channeling your efforts in the right direction and guiding you when you need it most. Codemasters’ titles from the last few years have presented their own career mode wrinkles. Dirt Rally 2.0 certainly features a more fleshed-out racing organization than the first title, complete with staff to hire and car upgrades, but it isn’t the same as those in the F1 series or even the core Dirt franchise. Dirt Rally 2.0 is not as involved as those other Codemasters titles, but I appreciate that it cuts to the chase. Upgrading your staff gets you tangible improvements. Instead of a nebulous two-percent increase in performance, for instance, an upgraded staff takes time directly off your repairs and penalties for flipping off the track. That kind of specificity spurs you to put your credits where you need it most. Click here to watch embedded media Upgrading your car parts centers on each car individually. For instance, your rallycross car in particular wears through the clutch and dampers faster, so those are the areas you can upgrade first. While there’s something to be said for the freedom to do whatever you want, at the end of the day I had more credits in my bank to spend on getting other cars and upgrades because I didn’t feel pressured to spend them on stuff that didn’t make a material difference in the end. I like how the game approaches how your car parts wear down, allowing you to quick fix them during an event at the cost of imparting more wear (something upgrades decrease). Wear also factors into the used cars (which you can test drive beforehand), which come needing their own repairs – something which would be helpful to know before you bought them. Click image thumbnails to view larger version As prepared as I was with upgrades and repairs before an event, I was always nervous when starting a stage, even if I’d done it before. The track degrades in career events, which influences your tire compound selection and adds another variable to consider while driving. I tended to make my big mistakes at the beginning of a stage; even in the long, 10-minute-plus stages, I became more confident the longer I drove. I attribute this to both getting in a driving rhythm and with understanding how the car feels on the different surfaces. It’s also the game doing a good job in giving consistent feedback so I can subconsciously take into account the pacenotes, weather, surface, car handling, braking power, and other variables in an instant and usually make the right decision. Perhaps the outlier in this is the tarmac surface, which I struggled to get a handle on and was more slippery than I expected. I also would have liked more vibration through the gamepad to further differentiate the racing surfaces and conditions, adding another dimension. While the staff setup and gameplay are Dirt Rally 2.0’s strengths, it’s only adequate in other areas. The multiplayer has timed events and championship sessions you can construct, but that’s the minimum you’d expect. The FIA World Rallycross Championship licensed season has no bells and whistles (and frankly I tire of going through all the successive heats in rallycross), and the random stage generation of Dirt 4’s Your Stage has been removed, cutting down on the number of stages you can race. Dirt Rally 2.0 doesn’t have every feature under the sun, but I trust it. I know I can put together a good team that’s going to help me win events, and the gameplay delivers, letting me skate that line between confidence and foolishness without knowing the difference. Score: 8.75 Summary: Codemasters delivers another captivating rally title that will have you swearing in fear and delight. Concept: Add more career-type elements to the racing, which remains the real meat of the franchise Graphics: The game is gorgeous overall. Objects occasionally pop in, but it’s not distracting. Lens flare and other graphical effects, however, can force you to favor certain cameras depending on the situation Sound: The co-driver’s pacenotes are informative and excellent, even including this quip: “Is that a puncture on the right rear?” He knows damn well it is Playability: Even without the luxury of being able to rewind after crashes, the game has enough assists and other ways to customize the difficulty so you can enjoy it at any skill level Entertainment: Codemasters delivers another captivating rally title that will have you swearing in fear and delight Replay: Moderate Click to Purchase View the full article
  15. The wait is over. It is my pleasure to unveil the newest Paladins Champion right here, exclusively at PlayStation.Blog. Evil Mojo Games has been building up to this Champion reveal for months, as part of Paladins’ ongoing lore campaign. We’ve hinted at his existence as the Paladins arrived in the Shattered Desert and found portals radiating with otherworldly power. The Paladins community has been theorycrafting all week, trying to decipher teasers. And I’m thrilled to be the first to tell you about him. Atlas, Man out of Time, will be the next Frontline Champion in Paladins. There is no light in the future, only an all-consuming Darkness. The Realm is lost. Atlas was born into this dark future as the son of a legendary Judge. Each day he fought to survive, and each night he found solace in stories of the Realm that was. These stories gave Realmkind hope, but their final stand against the Darkness failed tragically. All hope was lost… but one. Atlas studied old books of Crystal magic and mastered the control of time. He researched old tales of what started all this, of how the world had fallen. And then (as you saw in the video) Atlas stepped into the past, determined to save the Realm — and stop the Darkness — by changing the course of history. When you play as Atlas, you’ll feel his incredible control of time in every ability. He can summon a wall that slows time for enemy bullets and arrows. He can rewind time for himself… and for opponents. And with his ultimate, Atlas can even banish his foes from the space-time continuum. And I haven’t even begun to talk about Atlas’s incredible gun arm. It’s a perfect piece of future-fantasy technology, a truly unique weapon with four different firing modes depending on how long you charge each shot. Adapt to any combat situation as you unleash a precise single shot, or a close-range burst of energy. You’ll be able to play Atlas in our March update, “Future’s End.” But if Atlas has you excited about Paladins, there’s no better time to start playing. We’re offering a free bundle for PlayStation Plus Members for a limited time! With the Paladins PlayStation Plus Pack, you’ll wield guns and magic with eight free Champions. Choose from a deadly assassin, a cursed lawman, a self-important knight, and more. You’ll also unlock Voice Packs for your eight free Champions, plus 10 skins and bonus cosmetic content including a Mount! Atlas isn’t the only new content coming in “Future’s End.” This massive update is our biggest yet. We’ll be launching an all-new Battle Pass in Future’s End: An 8-bit, retro gaming-themed Battle Byte Battle Pass! The pixelated effects on these skins are absolutely stunning, and really capture the nostalgia of our shared gaming history. And, of course, we’ll conclude the End Times event that started in our February update. This event includes a special game mode where you can battle in the Shattered Desert and experience the power of the portals that brought Atlas back in time. This event also includes a ton of incredible Omega skins, depicting an alternate high-tech future. My favorite has to be the all-new Omega Imani, featuring an incredible mecha-dragon. This is Imani’s first Epic skin in Paladins, and it’s a great one. There are so many more great things coming to Paladins. Not just in Future’s End, but throughout an incredible year to come. But if I told you about them all now, I’d ruin all the fun. Join us in the Realm for a year you won’t want to miss. View the full article

Domestic Battery Gaming

Online communities, in particular video game communities, have a reputation for negative and abusive behavior which is not always undeserved. That isn't us, Domestic Battery takes pride in being a crew for people who are mature. This means being able to treat each other with a basic level of respect, being able to cooperate during events, and being able to have fun together. We are all from different backgrounds with different life experiences. What we have in common is that we enjoy playing Red Dead Redemption 2, Grand Theft Auto V and other games in a social environment which is healthy and rewarding.
