Zombi U Coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC

Published

on

ZombiU

Released back in 2013 as an exclusive Wii U launch title, Ubisoft’s survival horror game Zombi U is coming to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, getting its name changed to just ‘Zombi’.

ZombiU received generally favorable reviews and was one of the Wii U’s strongest launch games, with one of its biggest draws being the use of the Wii U Gamepad’s second screen functionality to instill a sense of fear and imminent danger.

The PS4, Xbox One and PC versions of the game won’t have such functionality, but they will make up for it by other means. Zombi producer Hélène Henry stated:

“We maintain a minimal HUD as much as possible. It disappears when not required, giving the game a very lonely feeling. If you have surround sound, the awesome sound mix from the original still stands and greatly helps immersion. As much as possible, we’ve tried to keep those key elements.

Also, there has been a slight increase in the field of view and players can increase and decrease it a little if they want to, but not so much that it takes away that claustrophobic feeling. Some work was also undertaken on the control mapping and response to improve the look and feel of the first-person movement.”

Unfortunately, Zombi U’s single-system multiplayer, which allowed one player to use the Gamepad to place hordes of zombies to impede the survivor, won’t be featured in Zombi for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC. On the bright side, the superior computing graphical and computing capabilities of the three systems will give the game better graphics.

Players will also have two new melee weapons to play with — the shovel and the nail bat — both of which offer a greater range and higher damage respectively than the cricket bat.

The flashlight has also changed and now allows players to switch to a different beam that, although lets you see further, drains battery life faster and attracts zombies more easily.

Zombi comes to the PS4, Xbox One and PC on August 18, 2015. Will you be getting it?

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

Published

on

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 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.
