I thoroughly enjoyed the last SimCity beta so I was very happy to see the announcement that yet another beta is being announced; though I was a bit disappointed to see it is only going to last a day. The beta starts on the 17th of Feb at 1am EST to 1am on the 18th of Feb.
Crysis 3 is currently in multiplayer beta – on pretty much all formats. One of the caveats of a beta – and really why they exist in the first place – is that sometimes they just don’t work, or don’t work properly, especially on PC’s where the possible hardware configurations are nearly infinite. One PC gamer, struggling to get the beta working, took to the MyCrysis forums to ask for help. And then got trolled by support.
I know what some of you are thinking, and I’m not even going to acknowledge all the haters. Because this game could just be my next online addiction. Developing a new MMO is hard enough, never the less merging an existing franchise and the MMO genre at the risk of disappointing two communities at once… I’m confident that Bethesda has got this though.
Just Cause 2 happens to be a guilty pleasure game of mine. It’s massive, open and just begging for players to find new ways to combine grappling hooks with vehicles and explosives, and throw it at a soldier. Still, the game had several shortcomings, which gave the experience a slightly sour taste overall. But then some smart people came up with a way to make Just Cause 2 relevant, and brilliant, all over again. By adding multiplayer to it.
EA has announced that if you pre-order your cope of Medal of Honor: Warfighter Limited Edition you will be eligible to enter the Battlefield 4 beta that will be held around about this time next year and at the same time have confirmed that Battlefield 4 will be released next year.
Far Cry 3 is probably my most anticipated game for the rest of this year with it’s jaw dropping visuals adding to what could possibly be the best multiplayer experience we’ve seen since Modern Warfare 1.
And it looks like we’re not going to have to wait until release date to give that a try with Ubisoft announcing that they will be holding a PS3 and Xbox 360 closed beta this winter and if you live in America all you need to do to enter is pick up a copy of Ghost Recon when it’s released.
Ghost Recon and the Future Soldier brand has always been a beloved and iconic part of the Tom Clancy gaming universe. Gamers have been starved in recent years though of any new title in the world of near-future warfare, due to Ubisoft being unsatisfied with the then current product, and taking the game back to the drawing boards.
But has the wait been worth it then? Oh yes, yes it has indeed, as the beta for the multiplayer of Ghost Recon paints a game that is completely different to all other similar games on the market today.
Earlier this week, it looked like Blizzard had opened the controversial Diablo III beta to all and sundry. They hadn’t - it was a technical glitch.
That’s changed now though - because Blizzard’s announced that they’ll be opening it up to all click-happy demon-slaying fans this weekend. Here’s how.
If you’re not interested in doing any console witchering right now in our other contest, then maybe a few rounds of fighting soldiers and terrorists on the PC will be more to your liking.
Mweb Gamezone recently announced that they’ll be hosting the Beta servers for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, much to the relief of, well, everyone, and to celebrate, we’ve got three Beta keys to give away to a trio of lucky and local steam account holders.
Want them? Here’s what ya gotta do soldier/insurgent.
So you’ve entered our competition to win a Ghost Recon beta key.. you have right? Great okay so what are you going to be experiencing in said beta in a few days time?
I’m glad you asked as this Ghost Recon Multiplayer trailer just appeared in the post below and it gives us some insight into the tools of the trade, the style of the experience and most of all a horribly annoying sound track.
If like you’re anything like me, then you have a strange hatred and aversion to tomato sauce bottles, and happen to be rather excited for the upcoming Ghost Recon: Future Soldier game from Ubisoft.
It looks slick and polished so far, and if you’re as impatient as I am, then you’re no doubt going to want to take part in the beta for it. We’re still running a contest where you can stand a good chance of being selected to take part, so don’t forget to hit this link and fill in your details.
It’s as easy as futuristic pie that is being slowly flanked by optically camouflaged special forces with eyes in the sky.
I think that May is going to be the month that breaks me. There are way too many awesome games coming out, and at the top spot on my list has to be the latest Ghost Recon game. Sure, it may be a completely different beast from the original games, but it still looks like a fantastic amalgamation of solid action mechanics and futuristic warfare ideas.
I’m itching to get into that beta for the game, which you can also enter into by the way. The multiplayer that really has me intrigued. I really want to see if Ubisoft has managed to successfully incorporate all these ideas, and if it was worth the multi-year wait.
And this latest trailer might have just convinced that it was indeed worth all the delays.
My anticipation for Ubisoft’s Ghost Recon Future Soldier grows with each new video demonstrating the game’s many ways of playing. In this latest video, showcasing how it’s entirely possible to progress though a mission without being noticed. With enough skill and stealth - and knives, recon drones, sight shields, an impressive array of weapon modifications and more - you’ll be able to dispense with your enemies without anybody knowing you were there.
Kinda like a Ghost…doing recon.
Ubisoft’s tactical Ghost Recon series is setting its digital sights on the future with Future Soldier. It’s got quite a multiplayer and co-operative focus, and the game will be going through an expansive closed beta before hitting shelves in May. Once expected to be confined to the 360 , we’re happy to report that the beta will encompass the Ps3 as well.
The beta will give you a first glimpse at the amazing multiplayer of Ghost Recon Future Soldier, which will let you experience the future of warfare like never before.
