COD: Advanced Warfare Zombies mode confirmed

It looks like Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will feature a take on Treyarch’s signature Zombies mode.

A leaked trailer doing the rounds (and getting removed at a rapid pace) shows footage of the unannounced mode in Sledgehammer Games' upcoming FPS.

However, the zombies here are fast-moving, high-jumping creatures that pile on top of each other World War Z-style.

Last year’s Call of Duty: Ghosts featured a co-op alien mode called Extinction in the place of Zombies.

Earlier this week, Sledgehammer co-founder Glen Schofield expressed his dismay that many of the game’s multiplayer details had been leaked.

Shadow of Mordor's Lord of the Hunt DLC has mounted warchiefs and more

The contents of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor's first DLC pack have been outlined by publisher Warner Bros.

Lord of the Hunt, which is due later this year, will see the player tame and ride two new beasts while seeking out mounted warchiefs.

The new beasts are both variations on those existing in the game: a wretched graug is a graug that spits poison, and there’s a stealthier caragor called a caragath. The player will also be able to summon hordes of ghuls (zombies) to do his or her bidding.

Destiny's first expansion detailed and dated

Destiny's first expansion detailed and dated

Destiny expansion The Dark Below will be available for download on December 10, Activision and Bungie have announced.

The Dark Below is the first expansion to hit the game since it launched in September.

It features all-new weapons and gear to earn through a new story, along with cooperative and multiplayer activities.

“Destiny was created as a living universe, which has allowed us to improve the experience post launch in real-time,” said Bungie president Harold Ryan.

“It also gives us insight into the things players are looking for in new content. We’ve seen from feedback that people want new activities, gear and weapons, and of course the immensely popular Raid. The community helps shape our development decisions and that’s really important to us.”

Dying Light is no longer coming to Xbox 360 and PS3

Dying Light is no longer in development for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

In a post on the game’s official Facebook page, developer Techland said that last-gen consoles simply aren’t up to the task of running the game in an acceptable fashion.

“For instance, up to 200,000 objects can be displayed in the game at once. Add to this our use of realistic, physics-based lighting technology and you really start to push the next-gen systems to the limits,” said Techland.

Advanced Warfare leak "a real bummer" – Sledgehammer

Sledgehammer Games is unimpressed that some unannounced Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare details have spilled out on to the Internet ahead of the game’s launch on November 4.

The details come via a copy of the game thought to have been stolen somewhere along the production chain.

Yesterday, a user called Anfuny29 broadcast gameplay of the FPS on Twitch, and others gleaned details before the stream was shut down.

Class action lawsuit over Battlefield 4 launch fails

A class action lawsuit accusing EA of misleading investors over Battlefield 4 has been dismissed by a federal judge in the US.

Last December, San Francisco law firm Robbins, Geller, Rudman, and Dowd filed a complaint against EA on behalf of anyone who bought EA stock between July 24 and December 4.

The suit claimed EA executives withheld information about pre-launch issues with Battlefield 4 from shareholders.

There are big changes coming to Destiny's Iron Banner event

Bungie has announced a number of significant changes coming to Destiny's Iron Banner PvP event.

The changes were made in response to player feedback said Destiny lead designer Tyson Green.

"The goal for Level Advantages in PvP had been to create relatively small advantages that would suffice only to tilt the balance between players of equal skill towards the player of greater achievement, expressed in terms of his gear. But we now believe we have been too conservative, and that small tilts failed to meet anyone’s expectations," said Green.
