Blitzkrieg 3, the latest instalment in the acclaimed WWII Strategy series from Nival is set for release in 2015 and here is a dev diary from the team.

Sad times, there will not be a sequel to Far Cry: Blood Dragon.

“That’s was what was cool about [Blood Dragon], it was surprising,” explained Ubisoft Montreal Creative Director Alex Hutchinson. “It was a great use of the Far Cry 3 base, and had an awesome soundtrack. But no, you won’t get another one of those. But hopefully we’ll be able to surprise you with something just as much.”

However, there will almost certainly be more Killzone on the way.

“If it’s up to us, you haven’t seen the last of the Helghast, but… you know… Who can tell where they’ll pop up next,” said Guerilla Game’s Community Editor, Victor Zuylen.

The bad news, or good news if you are a collector of all things exclusive, is that there will be just 2,000 copies available, and you can get them from FanGamer.

Rocksteady Studios, developers of Batman: Arkham Knight, have said they are aiming for graphical parity across all three versions of the game.

We’re about six months away from going gold. So we don’t know what the resolution and the frame rate’s going to be yet,” explained the developer. “That’s something that happens during the optimization phase of the game,”

“We’re aiming for parity across all platforms. Whatever it is, it’s going to be awesome.”

And Finally, nothing. Sorry, couldn’t find anything game realted and amusing so instead check out this bootleg remix of the new One Direction song. Now I know what you’re thinking, but trust me, it’s fab (mainly because it hasn’t got much 1D in it).

  1. Had that map of Far Cry 4 for a few weeks – you get it as a PC download when you pass various rites, a live action mini-game thingy, which also gives you a customised Kukri.
