Here's our first look at the Battlefield 1 campaign
28 September 2016, 9:27 am

EA has released a new video for Battlefield 1 that shows off the campaign for the first time.

DICE's shooter tells different stories that combine to form an anthology. Each story focuses on a different character. In a post on the Battlefield website, DICE said these stories are "about people rather than history or battles".

"The Great War is diverse. We knew we wanted to embrace that variety. There were so many different perspectives and characters in World War 1 and we wanted to cover as much ground as possible."

Report: Destiny 2 Planned for Late 2017, Will Feel Like a Completely Different Game Than Destiny
28 September 2016, 6:30 pm

Destiny 01 555x328

Aside from a planned 2017 release, we don’t know much about Destiny 2, but according to a new report from Kotaku, sources have said that it’s coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Additionally, it looks like the majority of Bungie’s 750+ employees are working on Destiny 2, with other studios like High Moon, Vicarious, and more helping with development.

Kotaku’s report further adds that they’ve heard Destiny 2 is set for a late 2017 release and Bungie wants it to feel like an entirely new game, rather than an expansion. According to one person familiar with Destiny 2, “D2 is a completely different game. The Taken King was a reboot for Destiny 1 to fix small things. This is the overhaul to fix big things.”

Part of making Destiny 2 feel like a proper may include leaving behind old planets, characters, and activities. On top of this, Bungie is reportedly planning on changing up how the game world functions by making planet areas feel more populated with towns, outposts, and more interesting quests.

Meanwhile, over on NeoGAF, insider shinobi602 says he’s also heard that Bungie is planning changes to the game world. Ultimately, it appears as though the developer wants to let you make activity decisions while still in control of you character, instead of having to exit to a hub.

Furthermore, shinobi602 says the story in Destiny 2 will focus on the Cabal and Saturn (new races and factions are planned), with Saturn set to be a bigger playspace than all of the previous ones combined. You should also expect Destiny 2 to include more substantial content drops between the yearly releases. Bungie has yet to issue a response to any of these reports.

What do you hope to see from Destiny 2 next year?

10 Agonizingly Long Waits For Video Games   Aliens: Colonial Marines   Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Battle 22   Duke Nukem Forever   Final Fantasy XV   Persona 5   PlayStation Vita   Tekken X Street Fighter   The Last Guardian   The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky Second Chapter   Yakuza 5             10 Agonizingly Long Waits For Video Games       Aliens: Colonial Marines Originally announced in 2001 by Check Six Games, Aliens: Colonial Marines was originally meant to be a PlayStation 2 game. After five years of troubled development, this version of the game was cancelled. Later that year Gearbox Studios announced they were now developing Aliens: Colonial Marines and that version spent 7 years in development turmoil, and ended up a mess once it released. I guess the moral of the story is to not use the title "Colonial Marines" in a game since it's a bad name and the game is destined to go through hell in order to release.     Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Battle 22 Alright, I probably had no good reason to be excited for Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Battle 22, as it was an original PlayStation game released in 2003, but I was young and dumb back then. All I knew is that it was a fighting game (my favorite genre), and I had heard whispers that the game featured a ton of characters from story arcs that were way further than the Saiyan saga. That was enough for me to anticipate it back then. Shockingly, the fighting game which was originally developed and released in Japan in 1995, didn't hold up particularly well after 8 years collecting dust. It was one of my biggest disappointments as a gamer, and I'm still confused as to why it was even localized.     Duke Nukem Forever The second Gearbox Studios game on the list is also a disaster. They aren't really to blame for this one, though, as Duke Nukem Forever had been in development at 3D Realms for 14 years (spanning back to 1997). Gearbox acquired the rights to the game in 2010, and released it the next year. It wasn't awful, but it certainly wasn't worth over a decade of waiting.     Final Fantasy XV Final Fantasy Versus XIII was one of the reasons why many gamers bought a PlayStation 3. After an uncountable amount of delays, and a name change to Final Fantasy XV the game is finally set to release this year. It's been a very long wait for Final Fantasy fans, but early impressions have been very positive. Hopefully this will be a feel-good story that shows a game can get out of development hell.     Persona 5 I adore almost everything about the Persona series. From the stellar gameplay systems to the phenomenal writing and soundtracks, I don't feel like there are any other RPGs that are quite this polished. That's why I've been waiting for the series' first HD installment ever since Persona 4 released in 2008. Now, over eight years later the game is finally out...in Japan. Oh, well. A few more months will be tough, but I have a feeling that it will be all worth it in the end.     PlayStation Vita I absolutely love handheld gaming. That's why the PlayStation Vita's Japan-exclusive 2011 launch was really difficult for me. I actually came dangerously close to spending a lot of extra money and importing a Japanese system (since it was region free), but I never did. Instead, I just read every single news story I could prior to the system releasing February 15, 2012. While the post-launch support has been less than stellar, nothing can tarnish the pure week of bliss I had when the Vita initially launched. It's an incredible handheld, even if Sony doesn't treat it as such.     Tekken X Street Fighter Remember this? Back when Street Fighter X Tekken (pictured) was announced in 2010, Namco also said they would be creating a Tekken equivalent. It has been six years since then and the title is "officially on hold" according to Tekken head Katsuhiro Harada. I'm not sure if this will ever be released, but I sure hope it does. I'd love to see how the Street Fighter characters would play in a Tekken style. Until an official cancellation, I'll be patiently (and painfully) waiting.     The Last Guardian It's only fitting that The Last Guardian was recently delayed for one (hopefully) final time. Team Ico's third title has been in development for the entire span of the PS3's life, and it was looking like it would never be released. It's finally coming later this year, so it'll be interesting to finally get to play this game. I hope people will enjoy it, but as you can see long development cycles don't have a stellar track record.     The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky Second Chapter The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky Second Chapter released came out September 2007 in Japan. It wouldn't release in North America until October 2015. Why the long delay? Well, the first game took five years to come out in North America, and the sequel had an understaffed and troubled localization. The game's script is over 716 thousand words, so it's understandable why it took so many years to finally finish being localized. Now to wait for the third (and final) game so the story can be completed.     Yakuza 5 Despite not being a huge success in North America, Sega had done a speedy job releasing Yakuza games in North America. That was until Yakuza 5, which took three whole years to come out. Once it finally released in North America, most gamers had already moved onto the PS4, but it was as good a reason to boot up a PS3 as any. It's a fantastic game, and really the best Yakuza game yet. Things are looking up for the Yakuza franchise and I can't wait to play future entries.       The post October 2016 PlayStation Plus Free Games in Europe Revealed appeared first on PlayStation LifeStyle.
