Boss Key Productions First Game, LawBreakers, Also Coming To PS4 This Year

lawbreakers-4

Announced as a PC exclusive almost two years ago, Lawbreakers; a competitive multiplayer shooter, from Cliff Bleszinski and Boss Key Studio’s has now officially been announced that it will also be coming to PS4.

Lawbreakers will be coming out later this year, as a digital-only title on PC and PS4 with a starting price of $29.99. They are not releasing a “seasons pass” and there will be no “pay to win” mechanics. That base $30 will entitle players to all future “content upgrades” for free. That includes things like new characters, maps, and modes, all of which will be available to the entire player base. Among other things, this has the benefit of not harming matchmaking by splitting up players, which Bleszinski believes is particularly crucial for a skill-based game.

Cliff also revealed during a round table interview that it will be playing at 60FPS on PS4. He also stated that it would not be coming as a cross-play title across PC and PS4 as “cross-play is dumb,” so PC vs PC and PS4 vs PS4, no PC vs PS4.

No release date has yet been given for the PC or PS4 version of LawBreakers yet, but the PC is currently in Closed Beta, and Bleszinksi did say there would be at least one PS4 beta upcoming. We will fill you in when we know more.

witcher-3-wild-hunt-hd-wallpaper-3

Today marks the day that CD Projekt RED unveils their first gameplay trailer for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. This game is on many people’s radar, and rightly so as it looks fantastic; if The Witcher 2 is anything to go off of, they will continue to push the bounds of the RPG Genre in not only size and scope, but also in sheer graphics fidelity. Take a look below at the trailer, and try not to druel all over your keyboard.


The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is slated to be released on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC in 2014.

Gamestop Still Has 2.3 Million Customers Waiting On PS4

Gamestop store

Gamestop announced today, that they have sold out of their initial allotment of Playstation 4’s, and that they are currently sitting on a backlog of 2.3 Million orders waiting to be filled. Gamestop executives said that the initial sales of the PS4 have outsold sales of the PS3 by more then 80% during the same period.

This is looking like fantastic news for Sony, as they already announced that they have sold 1 Million Playstation 4’s in the first 24 hours after release. Now, it appears that the initial hunger from consumers for the console will continue through the Holiday’s, and that will make trying to find a PS4 likely very difficult.

To celebrate the launch of Ryse: Son of Rome for the Xbox One, Microsoft has released this launch trailer for the game. I have to admit, they did a great job putting this one together. I have had the chance to play Ryse and I walked away not all that impressed, but this trailer sure makes it look like something special. Here is hoping the game is a lot more then what I have seen of it so far. Take a look at this fantastic launch trailer below.


Ryse: Son of Rome is launching this Friday, Nov 22 alongside the Xbox One.

Xbox One Won’t Have Twitch Streaming At Launch

TwitchTV

Microsoft has announced more details about its upcoming Twitch app today, among them, the fact that the Xbox One will not be able to stream over Twitch at launch, but it will be a feature they are hoping to have sometime in early 2014. The Twitch experience on Xbox One will be open to Xbox Live Gold members when they launch the app. So to at least get all of us excited for it when it finally does come around, they have released this video showing off how the Twitch app will work when it comes out.

I will be very interested to see how this compares to the built in Twitch on the PS4 when it gets released.

New Indie Publisher, Renegade Machine Starts Up

Renegade Machines logo

So, our friend Tom Ohle from Evolve PR and Khaled Ibrahimi, Cinematic Producer of Killzone 3 and longtime developer, have started a new Indie Publishing Studio called Renegade Machine. They have created this new studio to help indies find success. Using Tom’s knowledge of media and PR and Khaled’s knowledge of development, they intend to be the publisher that can help indies in whatever manor they may need it. As Tom puts it,

Perhaps a better answer is that we want ultimately want to help developers wherever we’re needed. I’ve spent a long time in video game PR/marketing — 12 years and counting — so certainly we’re able to help devs on the promotional side. My cohort Khaled Ibrahimi has spent his career on the other side of the coin — development, that is — and as such we’re able to help with production issues, dev pipelines, managing a virtual team and everything else you need to do to get a game out the door. We’ve also both been around the block enough times to be able to consult on business matters, make connections, help with distribution and so on.

We realize that developers often have a negative image of publishers: they force ideas on you, take too much money or just plain suck. We want to use our experience in working with publishers to build an appealing publishing option for a wide range of indie needs. To that end we’ve pulled together a survey. If you’re an indie dev, we’d really appreciate a few minutes of your time so we can truly understand what you’re looking for in a partner.

These guys are looking to change how publishers work with studio’s, bring new exciting games to market, and to really change the gaming landscape. If you want to learn more or are a developer looking to get in touch with these guys, head over to their website – Renegade Machine.

I can’t wait to see the games that come out of this, it sounds exciting, and we wish them the best of luck!
