I didn’t play the previous game which was called simply Nier but as I bought a PS4 quite recently I thought why not download a demo of the new upcoming sequel Nier Automata. And as I am new to the world of Nier I wasn’t particularly thrilled to go and explore the game but well I was curious though.

My type of an ideal game is an open world RPG with tons of stuff to do and explore while immersed in a vast dynamic world. This game is said to be an open world game however the demo is rather running through corridors and there is not much room for exploration. I thought that developers would want to show us at least a little bit of taste of that open world and what you could possibly do as opposed to throwing us into a very narrow mission. But if their plan is to then surprise us with a freedom of choice and movement without hitting invisible walls then I am all in.

Graphics are pretty. the game looks good, the main character movements are smooth and fast and nice to look at. Weapons they give us to play with in the demo are also cool. However I didn’t like the platform segments where the camera switches from third person view to this from side platform view, it tends to pull me out of immersion. But the combat is good I like that.

So in conclusion, well look there will be plenty of gamers liking the whole experience and that’s totally fine. In my opinion the combat is cool, the movement of the main character is also very good. Graphics are pretty…but I personally didn’t enjoy the demo all that much. Well, so if you are a Nier fan then definitely go and check out the demo.

Hope you have a nice day guys!

Conan Exiles

conan-exiles_vr1k

Engine: DreamWorld, Unreal Engine 4

Platforms: PC, PS4,  Xbox One

Release date: Early access – September 13th 2016

 


 

Another survival RPG game that caught my eye due to the fact that this game is set in Hyborian age, in Barbar Conan world. It’s going to be powered by Unreal Engine 4 which looks beautiful and crispy. And it’s going to be a hard core dark fantasy.You would have to gather resources like plants and wood to craft your stuff like machines that will harvest materials better from the world.

You can also enslave others and make them guard your settlement or castle or whatever you decide to build up. It suggest being both a single and multiplayer experience. The plot so far is very simple but that’s just because Funcom haven’t uncovered the whole story to the public yet. Apparently you might be an exile bound to die in a Hyborian desert but you manage to survive and then you take it further from there. I personally like it. You would have to withstand sandstorms and actually craft some face covers to protect you.

Another think is magic and summoning god like beings to fight on your side. I think it will take quite an effort to actually summon some of these avatars but as they said once you manage to do so the enemies wouldn’t have much choice but to make a run for it. Sounds badass!

I am looking forward to try it out myself. You can let me know what do you think.

I will speak to you soon!

Have a great day guys

Hello guys, it’s been a while since I post here and as I am looking forward to try out Horizon Zero Dawn there is new information about the game.

So in short, Horizon Zero Dawn is an action role-playing game set in a fictional word where the modern civilisation collapsed and humanity is pushed back thousands of years back as with technology so with their mentality. You as huntress Aloy being outcast from her tribe exploring the world and trying to figure out what has happened to the world, where she comes from, and not the last why the machines are acting more violent, who corrupt them? Well it’s up to you to find out all the pieces of the puzzle.

I mention the machines, yes the machines. The world is now populated by robot like dinosaurs that replaced animals as we know them. Cool idea if you ask me as I am a huge fan of dinosaurs…so fighting robot like dinosaurs sounds awesome to me!

you can also ride some f you override them, as of hack their system.

Divinity: Original Sin 2


 

Developer: Larian Studio

Divinity_Original_Sin_2_cover_art

Publisher: Larian Studio

Release date: December 2016

Modes: Single player, multiplayer

Gameplay

Swen Vincke, Creative Director & Founder of Larian Studios explains how the team plans to overcome the challenges of giving multiple players pen-&-paper like freedom in a story-driven RPG.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

Divinity: Original Sin 2. Well I never played the first game but when I saw a gamplay of the follow-up sequel I just fell like playing the game right then and there. Really like the graphics of the game and the combat. To tell the true I never liked isometric games I just couldn’t immerse myself into these games properly. Always prefer first person and third person styles of gameplay. I have a feeling this could be a different story due to a rich tale that’s going on for this title and the way you will be playing each character.

 


 

Story

Long after the events of the first game a Bishop Alexander the Innocent declares that Sourcerers are now criminals. People that are suspected of having a source power are hunted down and striped off of their powers to the extend that their bodies lacking any emotions or free will.

Four Sourcerers are victims of Alexander’s pogrom and travel across the realm through majestic cities, wastelands, ruined and lost temples and battlefields trying to figure out how to defeat that monster called Alexander the Innocent.

Without a shadow of a doubt this is only a really simple story because you will discover a whole lot complicated plot as you will be playing the game through dialogues with other characters within the realm of Divinity.

 


 

Gamplay

You will be able to choose your race, gender and your own story since you were a teenager. Then you can recruit three other characters to assist you. There is multiplayer mode where up to four players can compete or play together. Players can manipulate the environment to their advantage. Depending on your backstory the quests and dialogs will differ from character to character. Skill crafting system allows players to mix and change their skills. There is going to be a cover system usable during combat. Another interesting feature is called “Love & Hate”allowing players to establish friendships, romantic relationship and even hatred with other characters. Competitive multiplayer mode is also included where players would be divided into two teams and fight against each other in arena maps.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands

Publisher: Ubisoft

Director: Eric CouzianGhost-recon-wildlands-logoa

Designer: Dominic Butler

Producer: Nouredine Abboud

Writer: Sam Strachman

Release date: March 7, 2017

Modes: Singleplayer, cooperative, multiplayer.

Platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox One.

Website

Gameplay


 

You will take role as one of the four unconventional special operative soldiers from a recon team and you will find yourselves operating in high Bolivian planes.

There is drug war going on and your main mission is to disrupt  connection between a cartel and corrupted government. However, the game is going to be non-linear so the player could choose where to go, who to take down first and basically strike any location on the map.

The approach to various missions is also up to the player’s preferences. You could go all stealth, send a scout drone first to observe the situation then go silently in taking all enemies without triggering alarm. Or go in wild surprising enemies by your directness using tactical covers and blasting one enemy after another.

The game is set up for four players and so its cooperative experience with usage of all equipment at your disposal and tactic you choose to go for with your mates. But that doesn’t mean you need to have four other players in order to enjoy the game. You could definitely go for a singleplayer and have tons of fun on your own.

Al of the enemies is said to be very adaptive according to situations and actions from your side. They will use items sitting around them, jump into vehicles in order to chase you down. They will try to flank you when you don’t pay attention and more.

As far as customization goes you can change you physical appearance, clothes, weapons and equipment.

This game seems to be very promising and I would recommend to watch new information that will no doubt come out at some point this year.

I am a huge fan of military tactical shooters and would like to try out this title perhaps playing with my mates. That would be sweet.

Have a great day!

For Honor

Developer: Ubisoft Montreal

Publisher: Ubisoft

Producer: Stephan Cardin

Director: Jason VandenBerghe

Engine: AnvilNext

Release date: February 14, 2017

Modes: Singleplayer, multiplayer, coop on split screen.

Platform: Playstation 4, PC, X box One

Gameplay

Story of the For Honor game is not the most exciting one but it doesn’t necessarily need to for this title. It’s basically hack and slash type of game where you see your character from the third person view which allows for more immersion. There is a war amongst three nations:

Vikings e1bfecad33176fd11976aa72d93fd06f,

Samuraifaction-dawn-hero-main

 knights faction-ironlegion-hero-main.

All three nations mentioned earlier are fighting for their bare survival against each other and against an evil warlord Appolyon. Doesn’t that remind you of another warlord from the real history? Anywho, you can pick your side and grab one of the legendary heroes leading them into open world kind of battlefield alongside with your army which is under your command. You are able to challenge other heroes in duels as well as other players which sounds really awesome. With special moves, abilities and weapons this might be a really addictive mode because when you look at the gameplay it looks more tactile as opposed to frenzy action which is a good change.

Customization is available for players from changing your gender, armor to weapons. Multiplayer supports up to eight players who will be split evenly into different teams. The players will have their AL army at their disposal during the matches. There is a level up system. So, when the player kills a certain number of enemies consecutively they can level up and attain Feats which serves as additional perks. Then you can use those perks in your advantage calling in a barrage of arrows, catapult attack or heal yourself.

Dueling with other players is a tactical experience where you choose stances holding your weapon in different positions. Then you can strike from different angles as from above, left or right to attack your opponent. By watching your opponent’s moves you can then decide which of the stances and angles of attacks to apply. And by choosing the right position/stance can block the other’s player attack.

The only multiplayer mode known as of this moment is Dominion which tasks players to capture control points on the battlefield.

And of course there will be a single player campaign included with storylines for each faction.

Mass Effect Andromeda

We are exploring new horizons traveling far away into Andromeda galaxy without commander Shepard on board leaving Milky Way galaxy behind.

This story takes place long after the original trilogy and will have you exploring and colonizing new planets as oppose to fighting threats from another dimension which is a fresh start and I think it’ll suits well with the new Mass Effect game.

I ma please to report that all the sweet stuff we love about Mass Effect series stay the same. We will have deep interactions with our crew members and other alien races, love stories, managing our own ship named Tempest.

There are ancient aliens vaults scattered  all around the galaxy that you can dive into, explore and gain new technologies. Sweet loot! 🙂 It might function as boss instances in multiplayer mode but that’s only my speculations.

In the space, there would be ships and asteroids for you to explore as well. All that sounds really tasty and I can’t wait to lay my hands down on the next part of Mass Effect series .

I have included few links for more details so you could see what’s more to the game and there is more!

There is link to a website/blog where you can find more details about Mass Effect Andromeda. Interesting info and reading – watch

There is link to youtube video for you to see how it looks like – watch

Have a great day 🙂
