star wars battlefront - tie

It now seems a long, long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, but in fact it was last week, in Melbourne. A preview event for Star Wars Battlefront was hosted by EA on the first night of PAX Australia, this one to show off the fighter squadron mode for the first time in the southern hemisphere. Transport was provided in the guise of the Battlefront bus, which took the lucky few from the entrance to PAX, to the venue in North Melbourne. After some beverages and bites, it was time to get hands-on with the game. Battlefront’s Fighter […]

Uncharted is undoubtedly one of Sony’s marquee franchises. I’m not an expert when it comes to the series – I played the original game before my PS3 died, but admit I only have a fleeting knowledge of the games. That might change with the upcoming release of Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, but I still knew enough to be all over Naughty Dog’s newest offering.

  After an extremely long gestation period, the post-apocalyptic shooter known as The Division was finally available to play. Ubisoft showed a little bit of the game at last year’s EB Expo with a hands-off demo, but for those that have been dying to step back into the world created by Tom Clancy, this was the year. The mode shown off was The Dark Zone, an intense PVP section of the world where players will find the best gear for their characters, and their greatest challenges.

So the Battlefield: Hardline open beta has come and gone and I managed to play more than a couple of rounds to truly get a grasp about just how the game plays and and feels. I have killed cops and criminals, stolen cars and blown them up, and I have protected and robbed a bank too many times to count… and it was all a hell of a lot of fun!

Battlefield Hardline’s new beta is set to drop in less than twenty-four hours across PC, Xbox and Playstation platforms. While rumours of the beta leaked on reddit early last week, attributed to YouTube presenters in EA’s Ronku program, it was only in the past few days that there was date confirmation on the Battlefield site, as well as details of exactly what’s in. Save Game had a sneak preview of the beta content at an event at the Sydney Justice and Police Museum, hosted by EA’s community team and Visceral Games. In Sydney for the event were Senior Producer Scott Probst, Lead Multiplayer Map Designer Jeff Zaring, and Senior Multiplayer […]

evolve-cornered

Evolve is the next game from Turtle Rock Studios, due out in February this year. As a co-operative and competitive class-based shooter, it pits a team of four hunters against a lone monster, but instead of hunting down a predictable AI opponent, it’s another player that’s at the reins as the threat/target. The game has been shown at game conventions, but it’s the imminent open beta that’ll put in the most hands before release. I had the privilege of being invited by 2K Australia to see the latest beta, play against some of the developers, and ask a few questions about […]
