News Snatch: The Division, Murdered: Soul Suspect And Ace Combat Infinity

Ace Combat Infinity zooms on to PlayStation 3 as a free-to-play game on 28th May, check out the latest trailer which features the rival squadron “Ridgebacks” as well as the battle against the “Butterfly Emblem” and the UAVs.

I’m sure that means something to someone.

This is what Planetside 2 looks like on PS4, but why is there a PS Vita in the picture? Hmm.

Do not expect Gears of War 4 at E3, “We are in what we would call the concept/prototype stage, so again, we’re really super early,” said Black Tusk’s Rod Fergusson.

Four new screens for spook ’em up, Murdered: Soul Suspect.

Hmm, MKX. What could it mean? The last Mortal Kombat was techincally number nine in the series but I cannot think what Ed Boon is tweeting about.

According to video game’s Self Appointed Spokesman, Geoff Keighly, there are “A record number of fake E3 game reveals and rumors are floating out there.”

It is a little known fact that Geoff spends every waking moment scouring the internet for fake E3 rumours, categorising them and then filing them in a database system he wrote himself. This is how Geoff knows there are a record number of rumours and he’s certainly not making up bollocks, much like the rumours.

“In America we’ve sold FIVE times more copies of Titan Attacks! on the PS4 than on PS3. What does that say about the future of PS3 digital? Cross-Buy has been an absolute saviour for us in these cases. Not many people want to buy a game they can’t trade on older systems.”

We spoke to those lovely chaps at Curve who also revealed their games will only appear on PS+ “a long time [after release]”.

Anime girls? Check. Neon spiral graphics? Check. Large monsters? Check. Dungeons? Check. Must be a PS Vita game then, the annoyingly titled NAtURAL DOCtRINE coming to the dinky handheld later this year.

According to a tipster from within Ubisoft Massive, the chaps working on The Division, a 2015 release date might be optimistic. Yup, really.

“I still think that the [new] date is a tad bit optimistic as we still don’t have a functioning game and still have massive problems making our multiplayer component work at the concept stage,” said the tipster. “At the same time, both we and our publisher are incredibly happy with our game engine and Ubisoft will naturally make use of it in lots of upcoming titles.”

Apparently no one told Massive that the game was going to be out in 2014 and they only found when Ubisoft released the trailer at last year’s E3.

Ubisoft have a horrendous problem of announcing games far too early, for example Watch Dogs was announced two years ago, which makes me rather suspicious about Assassin’s Creed Unity.  So far we have seen some pre-alpha footage and that’s it, and the game is out in six months.

And Finally, Dead Space 3 has been recreated in CryEngine and it looks lovely.


  1. The phrase “Ridgebacks” or “Butterfly Emblem” does not sound so suspicious, as “Stonehenge” and “Shattered Skies”. Both of them clearly point into Ace Combat 4. I’m starting to think that this F2P game will provide us with missions already played in previous parts of the series. Sounds meh ;/

  2. I’m don’t think I have the right to tell Microsoft how to do their business, but I’m going to anyway.

    Black Tusk should have been allowed to finish their new IP that was already partway through development (unless the reason was that it sucked), and then they could start work on Gears 4. Because now, we need to wait even longer for this new and supposedly great studio to show their teeth.

    And while Gears fans waited a couple more years for another title (something I’m sure they don’t mind doing after four games on the 360) Microsoft could release two Gears Collections on the One. Each with two games in it to fill the quota for a couple years and pay for development.

  3. Bloody hell, was so looking forward to The Division this year and was quite disappointed to find out it was pushed back to 2015…I can deal with that but now its looking 2015 is a no go and to top it off they don’t have a functioning game at this stage…What the Frell?!!

    • I echo your thoughts exactly. It’s the one game from last year’s E3 that really caught my attention. Disappointing that it’s still so far away.

      • Aye. It’s annoying that even a release in 2015 is a bit optimistic.

    • Casting my mind back to the gameplay trailer they released where three players track down a snowy street and then take over a small building… In hindsight it appears to be quite narrow, quite scripted in its path and outcome.

      Still, the snowdrop engine is looking mighty pretty. I hope it works well across multi-platform.

      • Yeah the Snowdrop engine is amazing looking, trying to remember was the ‘demo’ ran on PS4? If not i can see this going the way of Watchdogs with downgrading and a stain of disappointment. I still have hope for this game.

        On another note Ubisoft need to stop teasing us with games that are 2 – 3 years away from consumers hands.
