Forza 6 Has More Content than Forza 5, Best Racing Game Ever?

Published

on

Forza Motorsport 6

Forza 6 is the biggest game that developer Turn 10 has ever made and offers more content that Forza 5. In fact, it has the potential to be the best racing game ever created.

GameReactor UK had a chance to interview Turn 10’s Dan Greenawalt, who share quite a bit at just how ambitious Forza 6 is, stating “this is the biggest game we’ve ever built.”

As we previously reported, Forza 6 will have over 450 cars at launch, all of which are customizable, have damage modelling and come with detailed cockpit view. There will also be 26 environments with “ten new” places for you to drive, a 70 hour career mode and 24 player multiplayer.

As if that wasn’t enough, everything runs in a crisp 1080p and at 60fps (frames per second)…

Forza 6 looks to have the makings of the best racing game ever made — the game fans of the series actually wanted when the Xbox One launched back in November 2013, as opposed to Forza 5, which was rushed in order to be ready for the console’s release.

As a matter of fact, Forza 5 launched with just over 200 cars (some accessible only as paid DLC) and only 14 tracks, fewer than in Forza 4 in both regards. It was a good racing game that could have been so much better.

While there is always chance that a game as big as Forza 6 might disappoint, we don’t think it will. Considering how poorly the Xbox One has been performing against the PlayStation 4, it needs to be a success.

Will Gran Turismo 7 be able to compete?

New N7 Day Mass Effect Andromeda Trailer is Intense, See it

Published

mass-effect-andromeda

The new N7 Day Mass Effect Andromeda trailer that fans have been impatiently waiting for is finally here, and it’s intense.

We get to see more scripted and in-game footage of the game world, as well as ‘brother’ Ryder, his alien crew and what appears to be the main villain in action. It might have also confirmed the existence of Salarians in Andromeda.

The Andromeda Initiative recruitment page has been updated to coincide with the trailer’s release. It shows the user’s login details with the year 2184… the year just before the events of Mass Effect 2.

The Andromeda Initiative is scheduled to launch in 2185, the year Commander Shepherd returns from the dead (the beginning of Mass Effect 2). Three Ark ships, each containing three different species in cryo stasis, will leave the Milkyway for the new galaxy, with plans to wake up the occupants 600 years later.

Judging by the trailer, things don’t go according to plan.

Mass Effect Andromeda launches for the Xbox One, PS4, and PC in Spring 2017. Are you excited for the new adventure?

Microsoft to Challenge PS VR With $299 Virtual Reality Headsets

Published

Microsoft has teamed up with several hardware makers to develop virtual reality headsets that are even more affordable than the PlayStation VR.

Laptop makers Acer, ASUS, Dell, Lenovo, and Hewlett Packard (HP) are among the companies Microsoft is working with. Their VR headsets are expected to release in spring 2017 and will start at $299 in the United States.

Despite their low price, the units will be the “first and only” headsets with “inside out six degrees of freedom sensors,” which is to say they won’t require extra accessory such as a camera sensor.

Microsoft says they will the the “first VR headsets capable of mixed reality,” and each one will work the Windows 10 Creators Update. Terry Meyers, the tech giant’s EVP of the Windows and Devices Group, specifically stated:

“Unlike every other virtual reality headset in the market today, there will be zero need for a separate room and complicated setup.

While the less immersive VR accessories today cost more than $500, or require a new expensive device, these accessories will start at just $299 and work with affordable laptops and PCs.”

Additional details on the headsets will be released closer to their release in the spring. Make sure to stay tuned to GameTribute for future developments.

What Can We Expect From Xbox Project Scorpio?

Published

on

Xbox One Scorpio Is 4K

With the Xbox One S now out, what everyone is waiting for is the so-called the Project Scorpio, possibly a new breed of Xbox.

When it comes to console gaming, we always expect major technological progress every 3 to 5 years but are often disappointed with what little we get. Some games, even the big budget, triple A titles end up looking dated after just a couple of short years, whereas it seems PC gaming just keeps on progressing.

Why is this not about Project Scorpio? Although this particular console will have a set of hardware and is built to outpace both the Xbox One and Xbox One S in performance, it will still technically run the same games, so if that’s what you’re hoping to see when it comes, your money might be better spent just buying new Xbox Games from Harvey Norman or from your local game stop.

Xbox One, Kinect, controller

What’s this ‘new breed’ of Xbox?

By a new breed of Xbox, we mean the next proper generation of Microsoft’s console — a fresh start for the company, if you will, a system able to play games both the Xbox One and Xbox One S wish they could.

The Xbox One we have today has undergone several changes since the console was first announced back in 2013. If the system was released as originally planned, we’d have a console that required constant internet connection to play games, effectively undermining the pre-owned games market and requiring a subscription to Xbox Live Gold.

Also, it would’ve came bundled with a new and improved Kinect — something hardly any gamer wanted — and wouldn’t have been fully functional without the motion sensing input device.

Guy Cocker, a former game expert at Wired and T3, said that “Microsoft made many mistakes during the pre-launch period of the Xbox One.” The major ones include pitching a product that no one wanted (Kinect) and positioning the system as more of a living room entertainment box that mixed a DVR, a video streamer, an internet browser than a true gaming experience.

The decision to forcefully include Kinect made the console significantly more expensive than the PS4, plus it proposed some very draconian anti-consumer measures regarding the trading of pre-owned games that further left a bad taste in gamers’ mouths.

Microsoft, to its credit, listened to player feedbacks, critiques and video game blogs, and introduced new policies to make the Xbox One more appealing to its core audience, but a lot of damage had already been done to the brand’s image.

The Next Xbox: games focused

“I think the next Xbox will be a game-focused console, so it will unveil with high-spec PC hardware like the Xbox One, the difference being it will be cheaper at launch,” says Cocker.
Microsoft may have overlooked highlighting this in Xbox One’s original reveal, but it has since changed its tune thanks to the backlash from the gaming community. According to Cocker, there’s also a very good chance the next Xbox will ditch a physical disc drive as online services get better and better, but we have our doubts considering that a 4K blu ray drive is one of the main reasons why the Xbox One S has sold well.

What we know for certain is that the Xbox One Scorpio will be the most powerful console ever made when it goes on sale, handily beating the PS4 Pro and Nintendo Switch on all technical fronts. Unlike the Pro, it will offer true 4K gaming.

There are also rumors of VR tech to take on the PlayStation V3 and the reintroduction of Kinect. All this boils down to a console that’s expected to stick around for a very long time.

Summary

For now, us gamers can only hope for the best and placate ourselves with the Xbox One S. Holding on to your Xbox One? Check out the Xbox games from Harvey Norman to get your fix of the latest titles delivered straight to your doorstep. After all, awesome games are what always matter in the end, right?
