Cyberpunk 2077 is getting a Multiplayer experience post-launch

CD Projekt Red confirmed over on Twitter recently that the upcoming CyberPunk 2077 will have a multiplayer experience post-launch, after rumors that an online mode for the game has been in development for some time now.

Image result for cyberpunk 2077

CD Projekt Red revealed in a tweet (See below) that “multiplayer’s in the works” for Cyberpunk 2077, and they are looking for some fresh talent to help them make it. They followed the announcement up with a link to the official CD Projekt Red careers page.

The page shows 8 jobs currently listed for multiplayer including a Design Director, 3D character artist and, senior gameplay programmer. CD Projekt Red then went onto state: “The plan, for now, is to deliver Cyberpunk 2077 in April, then follow up with DLCs (free!) and single-player content, and — once we’re done — invite you for some multiplayer action”.  

As for what the multiplayer will contain, that is still anyone’s guess. Some fairly standard options could be classic 6V6 or 8V8 Team Deathmatch style modes, or possibly a Battle Royal mode after they have proven to be very successful. An open-world game such as this could benefit from a GTA V or Red Dead Redemption 2 style open-world multiplayer experience, allowing a lobby full of players to inhabit the same world and basically run wild.

Fan response was certainly a mixed bag on Twitter after the announcement, with many looking forward to a multiplayer experience, and others wishing CD Projekt Red had focused more time and effort on singleplayer, despite the developers assuring fans multiplayer would not detract from the regular singleplayer experience.

Others were quick to call out Red Dead Redemption 2’s multiplayer mishaps after the game suffered from various issues regarding its online component. Heres hoping CD Projekt Red does a better job than RockStar.

Are you excited to see multiplayer arrive in Cyberpunk 2077 in whatever form it takes, or will you be sticking to the single-player story? Let us know your thoughts down below or over on twitter.

Image result for hitman the complete first season

First up this month on September 1st for the Xbox One, jump into the intense action-packed world of legendary assassin Agent 47 in Hitman The Complete First Season. Hitman is basically what it says on the tin, with you traveling to gorgeous and exotic locations hunting down high profile targets in some seriously cool ways. The game is broken down episodically, almost making it fell like a streaming series rather than a continuous narrative and the complete first season includes all extra challenges and contracts. Where Hitman excels is its re-playability with each target having various bonuses challenges to complete and a list as long as your arm of different ways to take them out. You’ll be jumping straight back in as soon as you’ve finished to find new ways to silence your targets. Hitman is a must-play for fans of stealth shooters, and getting all the extra challenges in the complete first season is a nice added extra.

Hitman The Complete First Season has a Metacritic score of 84 with a user score of 7.8 and you can check out the trailer below:

Earth Defense Force 2025 has a Metacritic score of 68 and a user score of 8.1. Watch the trailer here:

Image result for we were here

Available on the Xbox One for September 16th we have the co-op puzzler We Were Here. Team up with a friend or a stranger online and work together to escape an old castle filled with traps and challenges. You and your friend are trapped in different parts of the castle with only a walkie talkie to help you communicate. You must work together to help each other solve your respective puzzles and progress through the castle to your freedom. We Were Here sounds like a pretty interesting game for those of us who like a good puzzle and it could lead to some good laughs with a friend, or maybe a few arguments. Will you be giving it a try?

We Were Here is a little sparse on Metacritic reviews on Xbox seen as it hasn’t released yet, but over on PC, it has a respectable user score of 7.6. Heres the trailer:

September 16th Xbox 360 – Tekken Tag Tournament 2 

Image result for Tekken Tag Tournament 2

Our final game for September, released on September 16th for the Xbox 360 is Tekken Tag Tournament 2. Try saying that 5 times fast. Some of the most infamous fighters in gaming history are returning to battle it out once again. Tekken Tag Tournament 2 allows you to choose between a huge roster fo famous fighters allowing them to, as you’ve probably guessed, tag team in during matches. Tekken is a pretty standard fighter, with solid core gameplay plenty of combos to master and a roster of wonderfully wacky characters.

So, what are your thoughts on Septembers line up? To redeem your titles simply head to the Gold section on your Xbox One, 360 or at Xbox.com/gameswithgold and your new titles should appear in the ready to install section.

PS Plus Games and Best Deals For September 2019

Sony has officially released the upcoming PS Plus games for September, so it’s about that time again where we sit down and dissect the offerings and, wow, have we got some good freebies coming up. As always there are two titles up for grabs both of which are free to players with an active PS Plus subscription. They can be downloaded as usual on the first Tuesday of the month, September 3rd. Right, with all that out of the way lets dive into this.

Batman: Arkham Knight 

Image result for batman arkham knight

First up this month, we’re joining the caped crusader in his final outing with Batman: Arkham Knight. Initially releasing back in 2015, Arkham Knight was the fourth (and up to now final) installment in Rocksteady’s Arkham franchise. Players of the Arkham series now just how good this game is. Intense beat em up style action makes up the core of the game’s combat but its more than simple button mashing, with quick reflexes and excellent timing needed as well as a whole roster of bat-gadgets at your disposal. There’s also the incredibly cool stealth mechanics Batman makes use of to scare the scum of Gotham’s underbelly and plenty of detective work to be done. This game also allowed players to control the Batmobile, which is basically a full-on bat-tank in this game, but it makes for some really fun moments.

Story-wise, Scarecrow has all but taken over Gotham city after spreading a new and improved fear toxin and whilst Batman is trying to once again save his city, he has his own inner demons to fight. Aside from the main story, there’s plenty of side missions which include many of Batman’s infamous rogue’s gallery, as well as challenge maps, batmobile tracks and of course new game plus so you can play it all over again. Batman Arkham Knight is a must-play for fans of the caped crusader, espcially if you played some of the older Arkham games back in the day.

Batman: Arkham Knight has a Metacritic score of  87 with a user score of 7.8. Heres the trailer for you to check out:

Darksiders III

Image result for darksiders 3

Our second game this month is Darksiders III a fairly newer game which only released in late 2018. We’re swapping the beat em up mechanics of Arkham Knight for some good old hack and lash action. You play as Fury, one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse. After a war between the angels and demons, you are sent on a quest to reclaim the 7 deadly sins. The game has some incredibly intricate lore, something fans of the series will know all too well, and combines hack and slash combat with some RPG elements allowing you to upgrade your character’s weapons and gear to help you progress.

Add a couple of boss battles and puzzles into the mix and Darksiders III is definitely a game worth checking out. Darksiders III has a Metacritic score of 64 and a user score of 7.5. Check out the trailer below:

Deal of the Week 

The deal of the week on the PlayStation Store right now is Rainbow Six Siege deluxe edition for only £7.39 at 70% off. An absolute must-buy for people who haven’t picked this one up already.

Some of the deals on PlayStation right now which caught my eye include The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for only £7.39 at 70% off, Batman Return to Arkham is sitting at £12.99 with 62% off, perfect for fans who want to get caught up before playing Arkham knight next month. Bioshock The Collection is only £9.79 which is a fantastic purchase as well as Just Cause 4 which has 67% off and is only £18.14. 

Unfortunately, there aren’t too many games up for sale at the moment which are must-buys but be sure to keep your eye on the store for new deals coming soon.

So that about wraps it up for September’s PS Plus offerings. Will you be suiting up in Batman: Arkham Knight either as a new player or a returning fan? Or does the biblical mythology of Darksider III intrigue you more? let us know down below or over on Twitter.

What can we expect from the Obi-Wan Kenobi series?

Hello There. Easily the most anticipated announcement out of D23 this year was the upcoming Kenobi series which will be premiering and exclusively shown on Disney’s new streaming service Disney Plus. Much to fans delight it was also announced that Ewan McGregor will be reprising his role as the Jedi master. So, in true Star Wars fan fashion its time to widely speculate about what may or may not pop up in Kenobi. Even when we’re proven to be horribly wrong it’s still a load of fun.

Kenobi’s Exile

Let’s talk about what we know for certain. The series will take place in the 19-year gap between Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Episode IV: A New Hope. During this time Kenobi, now going by the name of Ben Kenobi was watching over a young Luke Skywalker during his exile on the desert planet. Thanks to various comics books and TV Series we know a good bit of what Obi-Wan got up to in those 19 years, most of which could be adapted to the live-action Disney Plus show.

Image result for obi wan artwork

In his earlier years on Tatooine, Kenobi kept a low profile quietly watching over Luke from a distance. He also visited the grave of Shmi Skywalker (Anakin’s mother) and apologized to her for failing her son. This lead to Kenobi experiencing dark visions of the past, leading to his old master Qui-Gon Jinn (portrayed by Liam Nesson in Episode I: The phantom menace) appearing to him as a force ghost to counsel him. This wouldn’t be the last time Qui-Gon appeared to Obi-Wan as it was revealed in the Star Wars novel “A Certain Point of View” that Qui-Gon’s spirit appeared to Obi-Wan during A New Hope when Luke rushes home to find his Aunt and Uncle murdered by the empire. Qui-Gon apologized to Kenobi for having him train Anakin all those years ago.

Could a small cameo from the one and only Liam Neeson be too much to ask? Could we see master and apprentice reunite in live-action once again? Its certainly possible, and Neeson has done voice-over work for the Clone Wars animated TV show before so the option is always there. Would you like to see Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan reunite again?

There’ll be back and in greater numbers…

Image result for obi wan artwork

Kenobi didn’t spend all 19 years on Tatooine getting a suntan, oh no. Kenobi had his fair share of fights on the sand dunes. Kenobi spent his times fighting off the Tusken Raiders of Tatooine, usually with a staff rather than his lightsaber to help keep physically fit and to keep a low profile. There was also an instance of Kenobi fighting off a group of Jabba the Hutts thugs who came demanding money from Uncle Owen and his family for a ‘Water Tax’. Kenobi once even fought off a Wookie bounty hunter named Black Krrsantan who kidnapped Owen and threatened a young Luke Skywalker.

Kenobi also made a few friends of Tatooine, offering to protect a group of Jawas from constant Tusken Raider attacks in exchange for some old ship parts which he gave to Luke as a gift.

There are plenty of dangers for Kenobi to face off against in his series, so we can be sure we’ll see him dawn his infamous blue-bladed lightsaber again.

Image result for obi wan vs maul

One fight I’m almost certain we will not see is the rematch between Kenobi and his arch-nemesis Darth Maul. Despite both McGregor and Ray Park returning to reprise their roles in recent years, that battle has already played out in Star Wars Rebels, so as cool as it would be, thats one fight the Kenobi series won’t feature.

Preparing for a future generation…

Image result for obi wan artwork

Luke Skywalker was all Kenobi had left after Anikan’s fall to the dark side during the events of Revenge of the Sith. Protecting Luke was Kenobi’s one and only priority, which is why I doubt Kenobi will leave Tatooine during the events of the Kenobi series. Obi-Wan made lots of preparations to eventually train Luke including writing a journal for the young boy, detailing the Force, the Clone Wars era and Jedi of old, and even telling Luke how to construct a lightsaber. Maybe we could see some of these journal pages being written and hopefully, we’ll finally see Kenobi learning how to pass on after death, a skill that only a few Jedi possessed.

Im sure we can also look out for some easter eggs and callbacks to Kenobi’s past. Possibly a reference to Satine, Kenobi’s potential lover from the Clone Wars or maybe we’ll even see his classic Clone Wars armor make an apperance in the series.

Who knows maybe the entire series will run like a “day in the life of” show with Kenobi, cooking lunch and cleaning up around his hut. What would you like to see most in the Kenobi series? let us know down below or over on Twitter.

Book Review: Star Wars: Thrawn Treason (Non-Spoiler)

Author Timothy Zahn has done it again. The third and final installment in Zahn’s official canon Thrawn Trilogy, Thrawn Treason was an absolute joy to read. Zahn knows the character of Thrawn better than the back of his own hand by now and he feels just as authentic as ever here. The plot, whilst still strong and gripping wasn’t as intense as the previous two Thrawn books, and honestly the same can be said for the novel as a whole. That doesn’t mean Thrawn Treason was in any way a bad read, it wasn’t and is easily one of the best stories released under Disneys new Star Wars canon since…well Zahn’s last Thrawn book. This book feels different compared to its two predecessors, a little empty at times and its caused by factors completely out of the books own control. Nevertheless, Zahn does the absolute best with what he has.

I’ll keep this review as spoiler-free as possible for those of you who still haven’t had chance to finish it yet, and if you’re a Star Wars fan who hasn’t read any of the recent Disney Canon Thrawn novels, leave now and go and do exactly that. You’ll thank me later.

Plot

A quick summary of the plot: Fans of Star Wars Rebels will know that the Chiss Grand Admiral makes his on-screen debut on the show, but has a sudden departure from the fourth season for a couple of episodes. He absences from Lothal is explained here, with him leaving for coruscant after Director Krennic (the bright white caped villain from Rogue One) tries to steal funding from Thrawn’s TIE Defender project to speed up construction on his own project: Stardust. Better known to you and mean as the Death Star. The political maneuvering quickly becomes a physical threat as Thrawn is given a seemingly impossible task to help Krennic solve a problem with the Death Stars production lines in order to secure funds for his TIE Defenders. What Thrawn uncovers on his mission turns out to be far more deadly.

The plot itself at first is heavily based on political maneuverings inside the Empire, which is the perfect ground for some incredibly interesting storytelling. Unfortunately, I found it rather hard to care about Thrawn and Krennic’s fighting over the Death Star and TIE Defender because we already know what happens to both Projects thanks to Star Wars Rebels Season 4 and Rogue One / A New Hope. That being said whenever Krennic and Thrawn interacted it was absolutely brilliant. I love both characters and they couldn’t be more different with Thrawn keeping a cool and calculated mind and Krennic feeling rash and self-obsessed. Those types of characters eventually butting heads just makes for some seriously cool moments.

Eli Vanto, a fan-favorite character from the first Thrawn novel returns with a warning to Thrawn about a threat to his homeworld. Without giving too much away, the threat itself did genuinely feel like a serious threat not only to the Chiss but to the Empire as a whole. It was really interesting seeing an enemy force who actually poses a threat to the mechanical might of the Empire, seen as they usually come across as an opposing force of dominance in the movies and in Rebels.

Despite the books best efforts to create some intensity, and in all fairness, it does succeed at times, I knew whilst reading nothing too serious would happen to Thrawn because his eventual fate is shown in Star Wars Rebels. Thrawn Treason is backed into a really tight space being set in the middle of Rebels Season 4 and it does, unfortunately, impact the book from time to time.

Characters

Obviously, Thrawn is absolutely brilliant here once again. The Chiss Grand Admiral and my favorite Star War character of all time shines through yet again as an intellectual genius, who not only outsmarts his enemies at every turn but uses his brilliance to try and better those who serve under him. Commander Faro and Eli Vanto are two brilliant examples of this. Both of them aren’t as clever as Thrawn but after serving with him are incredibly smart in their own right. They feel just that little bit more human compared to Thrawn, mainly helped because they, of course, are human. I found myself connecting with them more and more throughout the book. When they were trying to figure out Thrawn’s plan, I was right alongside with them doing the same.

Commander Faro espcially caught my eye, as someone I found myself enjoying more and more as the book went on. She holds her own throughout and proves time and time again that even without Thrawn by her side she is a formidable leader. Eli Vanto almost acts as the opposite of Thrawn in this novel. Whilst Thrawn is the only alien in an Empire full of humans, Eli Vanto is the only human in the Chiss Ascendency. Their parallel stories were incredibly interesting and seeing Eli’s return to the Empire he left in the first Thrawn book was fantastic.

There’s also a brand new character introduced in Thrawn Treason, named Assistant Director Ronan, who you can probably guess by the name is basically a mini-me version of Director Krennic. Even down to having a shorter white cape with his uniform. I surprisingly really enjoyed him here and his character arc through the novel gripped me more than I thought it would, as did his growing relationship with Thrawn.

Admiral Ar’alani is a character featured in the first Thrawn novels epilogue, and now she gets to take a more prominent role. She is also a Chiss Grand Admiral, although her allegiance is to the Chiss Ascendency, not the Empire. She shares Thrawn intelligence, although I’d wager he’d edge her out in a battle. Ar’alani is incredibly enjoyable in her own right, and her back and fourths with both Eli and Thrawn were really interesting to read. She visualizes the Chiss Ascendency and Thrawn’s own race of people. Having her by Thrawn’s side reminded us that Thrawn is still split between his own people and the Empire he’s supposed to be loyal too. Again, this would be a nail-biting dilemma for Thrawn if we didn’t already know what happens to him in Star Wars Rebels.

Thrawn Treason is a fantastic read, and is a must-buy for fans of the character, however with Thrawn’s eventual fate already being known thanks to Rebels, and the eventual fate of both the TIE Defender project and the Death Star also already being known I don’t know if this is worth picking up unless you’re a hardcore Thrawn Fan. The battles are as intense as they can be, the internal workings of Thrawn’s mind, fascinating, and the climax of the novel is truly amazing in my opinion even with the whole book having a bitter-sweet feeling to it.

Treason warps up Thrawn’s current canon story nicely and now opens up the possibility of exploring exactly what happened with Thrawn and Ezra Bridger after the events of Rebels season 4, a story I desperately hope Disney allow Timothy Zahn to tell.

Image result for gears of war 4

First up this month we have a truly legendary third-person shooter, Gears of War 4. Just in time to get you excited for Gear of War 5’s upcoming release, Gears of War 4 takes place 25 years after the events of Gears of War 3 and follows J.D, Del and, Kait as they escape from their village after a brutal attack and must uncover the origin of a dangerous new enemy all whilst trying to save their loved ones. Aside from the games solid campaign, there’s also a hoard style survival mode and of course online multiplayer. There are even challenges to complete in Gears 4 which will unlock some special rewards for you in Gears of War 5 when it releases September 10th for Xbox Games Pass on Xbox One and Windows 10. Solid third-person shooting mechanics, great visuals and a compelling story which is just about to be expanded on in Gears 5. Gears of War 4 is a must-play for those of you who haven’t already.

Gears of War 4 scored a Metacritic score of 84 and a user score of 6.6. Check out the trailer below:

August 1st Xbox 360 – Torchlight 

Related image

On the Xbox 360 for August 1st, we have Torchlight. A smaller game coming from the creators of Diablo, Torchlight is a top-down “dungeon runner” so to speak where you choose between three classes; Destroyer, Alchemist or Vanquisher. There are randomised dungeon levels to crawl through, hordes of beasts and enemies to slay and more loot to grab than you could ever hope for. It’s obviously an acquired taste, but for what it is Torchlight looks like a pretty fun time, with some great looking graphics and some core solid gameplay. If you end up loving Torchlight you’re in luck, as its sequel Torchlight 2 is right around the corner launching September 3rd.

Torchlight is sitting pretty with a solid Metacritic score of 81 and a user score of 7.7. Give the trailer a watch below:

August 16th Xbox One – Forza Motorsport 6 

 

Image result for forza motorsport 6

On the Xbox One for August 16th, we have one of the best racing games of this generation. Forza Motorsport 6. Forza obviously won’t be to everyone’s taste but for any racing enthusiasts out there it is a must-play. With over 450 different cars to customize and race with, across 26 world-famous locations in all sorts of weather conditions, Forza Motorsport 6 is truly an epic racer. Its visuals are stunning and its gameplay is solid, seriously if you’re into motorsport and you haven’t picked up Forza Motorsport 6 yet, I highly recommend you give it a try.

Forza Motorsport 6 has a Metacritic score of 87 and a user score of 7.7. You can check out the trailer down below:

August 16th Xbox 360 – Castlevania Lords of Shadow

Image result for castlevania lords of shadow

Finally this month, on the Xbox 360 for August 16th we have Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. You play as Gabriel Belmont in his quest to defeat an evil order known as the Lords of Shadow and resurrect his wife. You must cross a devastated world, to end the Lords of Shadow unholy rule and finally bring back balance. This one looks a little dated, which is to be expected but has some seriously intense-looking third-person combat not too dissimilar to that of old God of War titles.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow has a Metacritic score of 83 and a user score of 7.9. Watch the trailer below:

So, that does it for August’s Games With Gold lineup. To redeem your titles simply head to the Gold section on your Xbox One, 360 or at Xbox.com/gameswithgold and your new titles should appear in the ready to install section. Gears of War 4 and Forza Motorsport look like solid choices to me, but what are your thoughts on this months lineup? let us know down below or over on Twitter.

PS Plus Games and Best Deals For August 2019

August is here and with it, a brand new selection of free PS Plus titles for us to take a look at. Like always there are two titles up for grabs. The PS plus offerings for August 2019 will be available on the first Tuesday of the month (6th August). This month’s offerings are pretty solid with a classic shooter which redefines the art of sniping and an action-packed fast-paced racer which really gets the blood pumping. Let’s take a look.

Image result for ps plus august 2019

 

Sniper Elite 4 

Image result for sniper elite 4

First up this month, we have a sniping enthusiasts dream. Sniper Elite 4. This third-person shooter puts you behind enemy lines and you must use all your witts, the environment itself and, of course, your trusty rifle to make it out alive. Where Sniper Elite 4 really shines through, however, is with its impressive bullet drop and wind resistance physics and some of the most satisfying x-ray mechanics I’ve seen in all of gaming. Nothing really beats watching your bullet fly through the air in slow motion only to pierce through an enemy soldier as you see his bones break and organs explode. That might sound a little dark but honestly, it really is quite a lot of fun.

Despite the name, you are equipped with all manner of weapons and there are multiple different ways for you to complete certain missions so there’s a decent amount of replayability here too. There’s also a co-op campaign to play through with your friend and 12 player multiplayer matches.

Sniper Elite 4 boasts a Metacritic score of 77 and a user score of 6.6. Check out the game’s trailer below:

Wipeout: Omega Collection 

Image result for Wipeout: Omega Collection

Next, up for the month of August, we have a racer that dates back all the way to the original PlayStation. It is virtually the same sci-fi racer you remember from the good old days only with some serious upgrades, and the Omega Collection contains multiple games. Wipeout 2048, Wipeout HD and, the HD Fury Expansion. All are availbe to play with 26 tracks to race around and up to 8 player multiplayer, Wipeout is a serious thrill ride. Race around the tracks picking up power-ups like homing missiles and machine gun turrets to try and take your opposition on the track. Oh, but wait, it gets even better. Wipeout Omega Collection is also playable on the PSVR system allowing you to experience the thrill of the race from the cockpit itself. As someone who recently played Wipeout in VR, I have to say it is jaw-droppingly good. Seriously, if you can play this game in VR you simply have to. Non PSVR users don’t worry though, the game is equally as fun when played normally.

Wipeout Omega Collection has a Metacritic score of 85 and a user score of 8.2. Give the trailer a watch, down below:
