News Bites – Wednesday the 10th of October
– Ubisoft have today announced a new entry in the Far Cry franchise called Primal. The game will be set in the year 10 000 BC and will see players crafting, hunting and killing their way to the top of the food pack. The big surprise is the game is due for release on the 23rd of February which is leading many to believe that this entry is more of a spin off ala Blood Dragon as opposed to a full entry in the franchise. Check out the trailer below.
– Stan has announced it is finally bringing an app to consoles. As of tomorrow both the PS3 and PS4 will allow players to download the Stan app and access its video on demand services. Sony is also offering 3 month bonus subscriptions with the purchase of specially marked products to encourage people to give the service to go. This is the perfect excuse for people to try the product just in time for the release of Ash vs The Evil Dead at the end of the month.
– PC gamers are often crying for ports of popular console games but I bet it wasn’t for this one. Sega’s Sonic: The Lost World is coming to Steam on the second of November. It beggers belief that Sega would waste resources to bring such a disliked game to PC after all of this time. There is some good news however as purchases of the game come with a free copy of the excellent Sonic All Stars Racing: Transformed. Not often you see a giveaway be much much better than the purchased product but there you go.
– Microsoft are continuing to expand on the Hololense experiment with Project X-Ray, a system that will great wearable holograms that can be used as armor or weapons in games. An interesting concept no doubt and one that could really add that missing element to Hololense to take it into must buy territory when it is released.
