Far Cry 5 Trailer and Release Date Announced

UBISOFT ANNOUNCES FAR CRY 5  IS COMING TO AMERICA’S HEARTLAND ON FEBRUARY 27, 2018

Today, Ubisoft announced that gamers will experience the chaos, unpredictability and ferociousness of the Far Cry franchise with Far Cry 5 on PlayStation 4, the Xbox One family of devices, including Project Scorpio, and Windows PC. Set in America for the first time, in Montana, players will have total freedom to navigate this serene-looking yet deeply twisted world solo or entirely in two-player co-op as they fight for survival and freedom, when the game releases on February 27, 2018. Development for Far Cry 5 is being led by Ubisoft Montreal.

As the new junior deputy of fictional Hope County, Montana, players will find that their arrival accelerates a years-long silent coup by a fanatical doomsday cult, the Project at Eden’s Gate, igniting a violent takeover of the county. Caught off guard and drawn into a power struggle, players must disrupt the carefully laid plans of the Project at Eden’s Gate and fan the fires of resistance to help liberate the Hope County community and themselves.

Under siege and cut off from the rest of the world, players will join forces with residents of Hope County and form the Resistance. The fight against the cult will take players to unique locations throughout Hope County that provide different gameplay experiences. During their journey, players can fly planes to engage cult forces in aerial dogfights across Big Sky Country. While tracking down cult members and gathering resources for survival across farmland, forests, mountains and rivers, players can get behind the wheel of iconic American muscle cars, big rigs, ATVs and boats. Vehicles also provide refuge when under attack by animals or as a way to quickly escape when things don’t go as planned.

To take down the cult, players will need to utilize any and all weapons at their disposal, including ranged weapons such as guns and grenades and melee weapons like a sledgehammer or baseball bat. Additionally, players can recruit Guns for Hire from a large cast of characters, or even Fangs for Hire, specialized animals like bears and cougars to complement players’ playstyles whether they’re going in stealthily or forcefully. How players approach each situation and the chaos they create in Far Cry 5 is up to them. Far Cry 5 will also see the return of the map editor, giving players the opportunity to create and play an infinite amount of new playgrounds. The map editor will include new features that add a new dimension to the content created by fans, with more details coming soon.

Twitch Rival, Beam, Gets Renamed to Mixer

Beam is a streaming service similar to Twitch, that last year was bought by Microsoft. Since then they have added Beam into Windows 10, and Xbox One. Well today they announced that they are changing the name from Beam, to Mixer. They said that they felt that with the Beam name that they were unable to grow and expand into every market around the world, so they chose Mixer as their new name because it represents what they love about the service, how it brings people together.

One of the big things that they are touting with Mixer, is the ability to interact with streamers in almost real time, so compared with the 12-15 second delay on Twitch, Mixer is actually live.

Also launching alongside the new name is Co-Streaming. Starting today, they are launching the ability for up to 4 streamers to combine their streams into a single Mixer page. So like the image above shows, you can have 4 different people, even spread across 4 different locations, all playing together and streaming for a centralized experience, they don’t even have to be playing the same game!

Microsoft is also Launching a Mobile app (currently in beta) called Mixer Create on iOS and Android to allow users to self broadcast on the go. It is launching publicly on Android today and invite only through TestFlight on iOS. This will allow people to stream not just mobile games, but all kinds of other experiences as well.

Mixer is also getting its own Xbox One page on the dashboard, so starting today, for those who are Xbox Insiders, they will see a page full of streamers and streams all happening that they can get in on at the touch of a button.

Microsoft also announced that they will be streaming their E3 Press Briefing in 4k Ultra HD, and for those with the proper setup, they can watch it on Mixer in a special edition broadcast with all kinds of goodies and digital bonuses for those who watch on that platform.

They released a whole bunch more, in which you can get all the details in the video above.

Spider-Man star Tom Holland cast as young Nathan Drake in Uncharted movie

Deadline is reporting that Tom Holland, star of Spider-Man: Homecoming and the current big screen Spider-Man, has been cast to play Nathan Drake in the Uncharted movie that’s currently in development.

Holland will play a young Nathan Drake in the new script, which is being written as a prequel. The movie takes inspiration from one of the early levels of Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception that featured a young Nathan Drake in his first encounter with Victor Sullivan, who would later become his mentor.

Sony Pictures will hire a new script writer to pen the story. Night at the Museum director Shawn Levy is still attached to direct. This new direction for the movie was decided on after Sony Pictures boss Tom Rothman watched the most recent cut of the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming, according to the site.

Sony Pictures hopes to start another franchise around Tom Holland’s charisma, following the positive buzz about his portrayal of Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War.
