Watch Dogs Sells 4 million Copies In One Week

Watch-Dogs-Game-HD-Desktop-Wallpapers

Ubisoft has confirmed that Watch Dogs has sold more than 4 million copies in its first week of release. This news makes Watch Dogs the best selling new franchise launch in history. In addition, this news also confirms that Watch Dogs is the best first week sales of any Ubisoft game in the companies history, a pretty impressive feat given the current lineup of games Ubisoft currently has. The 4 million copies sold includes the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC versions.  The Wii U version has yet to be released and will only add to the financial success that Watch Dogs is currently enjoying.

As a minor side note, The ctOS mobile companion app which allows players to become the police and challenge people playing the actual Watch Dogs game, has been downloaded by more than one million people.

Ubisoft has pointed out in the past that if a Watch Dogs 2 were to be made that the devlopement time would be much shorter than it was for the original Watch Dogs. When factoring in these sales and overall popularity of Watch Dogs, it would not be surprising if a Watch Dogs 2 was not in Ubisoft’s plans for the near future.

New Lego Batman Game Announced

lego_batman_trailer_screengrab_-_h_2012

A new Lego Batman game has just been announced and will be titled Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham. Lego Batman 3 will be released on all major consoles, handhelds, and on PC. Lego Batman 3 will continue on from the events of Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes.  In this new adventure, Batman will have to travel into space in order to prevent the villain known as Braniac from destroying the world. Braniac is using the power of the Lantern Rings to miniaturize cities from across the cosmos. In this brand new intergalactic adventure, Batman will team up with over 150 unlockable characters from the DC universe and they will visit different lantern worlds to collect these Rings in order to put an end to Braniac’s diabolic plan.

The 150 characters that will be incorporated into the game, much like previous Lego games in the series, will each have their own set of unique gadgets and abilities. Another interesting component is that the announcement also states that “the power of the Lantern rigs bring unexpected twists to the classic characters’ personalities.” It seems that Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham, will have many twists and turns within the story and also change the way we may view many of the DC heroes and villains that we have all grown accustomed to. As always, stay tuned to RealGamerNewz for future updates on Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham.

Here is the Announcement trailer for your viewing pleasure:

Halo 5: Guardians Announced for 2015

Hero_Halo5

Earlier today 343 Industries revealed that Halo 5: Guardians will be available exclusively on the Xbox One in the fall of 2015.

The announcement was made by 343’s general manager Bonnie Ross in a blog stating the future of the Halo franchise. “Halo” games have pushed the Xbox forward, showcasing the console and its ecosystem in entertaining and innovative ways. Making a “Halo” game that runs at 60 frames per second, on dedicated servers, with the scope, features and scale we’ve been dreaming of for more than a decade, is non-trivial.  It’s a task that we, at 343 Industries, are taking very seriously to ensure we deliver the “Halo” game that fans deserve, and a game that is built from the ground up for Xbox One.”

Ross explains that Guardians is a “bigger effort” than part 4 and that “the content and scope of the game, as well as the technology in what’s now a brand new and more powerful engine.  Certainly there are some core elements carried over from prior games, but we’ve invested a huge effort in retooling our tech to take full advantage of the Xbox One’s hardware and ecosystem to create worlds and experiences worthy of next-gen.”

Ross also went on to hint at 343 industries plans for next month’s E3. “Many fans noted that I was very deliberate with my phrasing on stage at E3 last year. I spoke about a “journey,” rather than a destination – and that journey definitely begins in 2014 with a giant leap, rather than one small step. We’ll give you much more information about our plans for this year at the Xbox E3 2014 Media Briefing on June 9, and we’re confident that “Halo” fans will be pretty excited about the special plans we have in store.”

Sounds exciting. Stay tuned to RGN for all things Halo as we get closer and closer to E3.

Nuclear Throne (PS4 Next Gen Exclusive) – PlayStation Trailer [HD]

Nuclear Throne PlayStation Trailer

Nuclear Throne will appear exclusively on the PlayStation 4 in terms of the next-gen version, however it will also be available on the Xbox One later down the line. The reason for this delay in platform release is because of Microsoft’s parity clause and the loophole out of it which Vlambeer opted for. For those who haven’t heard yet, Microsoft currently (at the time of this post’s writing) enacts a clause on all game makers to put their game out on Xbox One and PS4 at the same exact time or forfeit the right to release on Xbox One at all. To avoid conflict during a transition into next-gen though, Microsoft allows that clause to be ignored if a PS4 contract was already signed before the title was submitted for publishing on the Xbox One platform.

For many development studios, particularly small and efficient indie teams, it is simply not possible to be that precise with releasing multiple platforms at once and so Vlambeer has opted to go this route with the title that is based in the 8 bit art style and uses sci-fi as well as modern and traditional role playing / action gameplay elements. Check out the PlayStation trailer for the title below which will also become available for PS3, Windows PC, Mac OS X, and PlayStation Vita.

Published on May 14, 2014
Genre(s): 8-Bit, Action, Platformer, RPG
Platform(s): PC, PS4, PS3, PS Vita, Mac
Publisher(s): Vlambeer
Developer(s): Vlambeer
Release Date (NA): TBD

[Update] New Screenshot for The Division asks ‘what would you do?’

thedivision_wal.61d78152141.original

Update: A new screenshot was recently uploaded today with #CommunityLove.

 

Man this game looks amazing.

Original Story below:

A new screenshot for Ubisoft’s The Division was released asking one simple yet very important question. “What would you do?”

The game’s official twitter page recently posted the screenshot along with the message: “Looks like this agent is in a tight spot… what would you do in a situation like this?”

 

Personally I would summon an immense fire-breathing dragon and command it to rai…wait, there are no dragons i this? Oh, well I would probably just shoot an RPG in their faces and walk away like a bada** while enjoying the gorgeous explosion in the background. Yeah, just like that, but enough about me…what would you do?

The Division is set to release sometime this year for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

A Discount on The Last of Us: Remastered For PS3 Owners Being Looked Into By Naughty Dog

Remastered

Those of you who already owned The Last of Us on PS3 and want to get the PS4 version releasing this summer but are also put off by the $60 asking price, might be in luck. Developer Naughty Dog is looking into the possibility of offering a discount of the game according to community strategist Eric Monacelli.

“We’re looking into the business model for all this and will post about this once we have input from all regions.” Monacelli said in response to a fan’s question.

When the PlayStation 4 first launch, several titles featured a discounted upgrade option through PSN and some retailers. If a similar model is implemented for the ‘Remastered’ Edition I’m sure many fans will gladly choose to upgrade.

Monacelli recently revealed the details regarding the final DLC pack for The Last of Us on PS3. The Grounded Bundle Pack will feature 4 new multiplayer maps, 4 new weapons, 8 new survival skills and an all new difficulty mode for Singeplayer called ‘Grounded’ mode that promises to be even more challenging than ‘Survivor’ mode. You can get the full details here.

The Last of Us: Remastered will release this summer.
