A Month Before E3 Destiny Next Large Expansion Might Have Leaked


The next expansion may have just leaked due to a gorgeous art piece that first appeared on Reddit, but has since been taken down. Since this, there has been no word from either Bungie or Activision confirming or denying this possible leak. The expansion, which is expected in September, should be officially revealed at E3 2016.


"Rise of Iron" this piece showcases a familiar face in the Destiny universe, standing atop some snowy rubble with a flaming axe. Now Lord Saladin is a well known established figure within the Destiny cannon, so this could be a possible backstory to both the character and Iron Banner itself. As for the location, this could easily be Europa which was one of the locations that almost made it into Destiny. The Rise of Iron expansion will feature a new raid likely Fallen themed & will be larger than the two year-one DLC packs, according to a source.


Batman: Return To Arkham is Coming To PS4 & Xbox One This Summer

After a string of leaks, Warner Bros. today officially announced that remastered versions of Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City are coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The games arrive on July 26 through the Batman: Return to Arkham bundle, which will cost $50

The original games were powered by the Unreal Engine 3 (as was Batman: Arkham Knight), but the remasters were made using Unreal Engine 4, representing a first for the series.

Development duties were handed to Chinese company Virtuous, which also co-developed Heavy Rain's PS4 version and contributed to Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. Additionally, the company created assets for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

In addition to the base games, players receive all Game of the Year extras and downloadable content. Overall, Warner Bros. said players can expect "improved graphics" and "upgraded models, environments, lighting, effects, and shaders."

Remastered versions of Arkham Asylum and Arkham City have been rumored since March 2015. Today's official announcement comes after a series of retailer leaks.

As was suggested, 2013's Batman: Arkham Origins, which was developed by WB Games Montreal, is not included in the Return to Arkham package.

The first trailer has also been released, showcasing the new graphics and more. Take a look:

 

Another Destiny Exploit Discovered - Unlimited Heavy Ammo Anyone


A new glitch in Destiny allows players to generate unlimited amounts of ammo in their special and heavy weapons, including sniper rifles and rocket launchers.


Destiny players have once again discovered another glitch, this time allowing for unlimited generation of ammo for special and heavy weapons. It doesn’t work across the board however; it requires a specific pairing of weapons and perks.

Much like the Golden Gun glitch that only appeared with a specific gear setup, this one exploits the combination of the weapon perk Cocoon and Clown Cartridge. Cocoon is a perk that exists on every King’s Fall raid weapon: “When stowed for a short time, this weapon is automatically reloaded from your reserves.”


Clown Cartridge is a perk that can randomly roll on sniper rifles, rocket launchers, hand cannons, and shotguns. It’s effect reads: “Upon reloading it grants the player a 25% chance to load a magazine with 20% more rounds.” These rounds are extra bonus rounds; they are not pulled from the ammo reserve for that weapon.

What is happening is if a King’s Fall weapon with the Cocoon perk is in one slot and the player cycles between that weapon and a sniper rifle or a rocket launcher for example that has the Clown Cartridge perk, the Cocoon perk is causing Clown Cartridge to proc.

It can take some time to fill up a magazine, as the 25% random chance of Clown Cartridge activating remains in effect. However, many fans are showing off screen shots of 20 active rounds in a sniper rifle or even 50 rounds in a rocket launcher.

What’s even worse is that this glitch not only works in PvE but also in PvP as well. That means players can generate rocket launcher ammo straight off spawn at match start without the need for heavy ammo boxes partway through the match. Many on the Destiny subreddit are calling the Crucible completely broken because of this exploit.

Cozmo, community manager at Bungie, took to Reddit to let fans know Bungie is aware of the issue:

“Thanks for bringing this up. The team is aware of this issue and currently investigating.”
It’s unclear whether Bungie just found out about the exploit when fans posted it, or if the developer has known about it. The exploit may have come from the April Update, which did apply some changes to the King’s Fall raid weapons across the board.

New EA Sports Madden Ultimate Team Action Figure Series Launches August 2016


[FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE]
MCFARLANE TOYS HUDDLES UP WITH EA SPORTS TO GIVE GAMERS A NEW WAY TO ENJOY THE “MADDEN ULTIMATE TEAM” IN MADDEN NFL 17
Tempe, Ariz., - May 13, 2016 - In conjunction with EA SPORTS, McFarlane Toys is excited to announce a new wave of collectible NFL action figures that will integrate with the Madden Ultimate Team mode in the immensely popular Madden NFL 17 videogame.

Each individual figure will come with a redemption code that players can use in-game giving them seven Madden Ultimate Team Pro-Packs (a $10.50 value), as well as the opportunity to unlock exclusive NFL stars. Each Pro Pack will contain 10 items consisting of six NFL stars and four non-player specialty items to help players ignite their squad.

For over two decades EA SPORTS Madden NFL has been one of the standard bearers for not only sports, but videogames in general. Madden Ultimate Team has become one of fastest growing modes in the game, allowing players to become the General Manager of their very own franchise, constructing a dream team comprised of current NFL stars and legends of the past, through earning and opening Pro Packs.

McFarlane Toys has produced figures of NFL stars for over a decade, and this collaboration with EA SPORTS will help fans get more involved in the Madden Ultimate Team process through the associated McFarlane Toys figure series.

Beginning this summer, fans can be on the lookout for the first of three Madden Ultimate Team action figure lines which will be composed of at least seven of the top NFL stars in the game today. The first series of Madden Ultimate Team figures will consist of reigning NFL MVP Cam Newton of the Carolina Panthers, NFL Rookie of the Year Todd Gurley of the Los Angeles Rams, Oakland Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper, Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, and New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski. Specialty and hobby store cases will contain one of two exclusive alternate version figures with game specific commemorative bases.

The seven-inch figures will be extremely detailed and sculpted in an iconic game action pose as fans of the McFarlane brand are accustomed to seeing. These figures will also debut new window box collector packaging and will come with a detailed base.

“Because you get some of these unlockables, the fun part is that the toys are more than just display,” said Todd McFarlane, Owner and CEO of McFarlane Toys. “With the videogame and now the figures, you’ve got that Madden style 24/7, even if your console switch is turned off.”

The McFarlane Madden Ultimate Team figures and EA SPORTS Madden NFL 17 will both be available at major retailers this August, with the figures having an MSRP: $24.99. For more information about the Madden Ultimate Team figures, fans are encouraged to check out www.mcfarlane.com as well as the McFarlane social media channels for updates and news.

Ubisoft Says Watch_Dogs II Will Surprise Players With It's New Tone


Watch Dogs was one of the most anticipated games of 2014, but upon its release it didn’t quite live up to the hype. Make no mistake, Watch Dogs is a solid game, but it’s fair to say the hype got too much for the game to bear.

However, Watch Dog 2 hopes to succeed where the original stumbled. VideoGamer reports that Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has stated that Watch Dogs 2 has the potential to be “one of Ubisoft’s best-selling games of all time.” Bold words indeed. He also claimed that the game will “surprise players” with “it’s new tone.”

Whilst discussing Ubisoft’s line-up of games for the current financial year, Guillemot said that its “biggest title will be Watch Dogs, which will build on the success of the first game.

“It has the potential to be one of Ubisoft’s best-selling games of all time,” he added. “The game will once again surprise players with a new tone and with innovative hacking gameplay possibilities. We can’t wait to show your more.”

Watch Dogs 2 still doesn’t have an official release date, but it’s expected to drop late this year. Many gamers are expecting to see the game at E3 this year.
