Take Battlefield Hardline, for instance. EA has taken a bold move with its stagnating shooter franchise, placing Dead Space developer Visceral Games at the helm of this latest instalment. Gone is the overriding focus on modern warfare in exchange for something that hits closer to home. In Hardline you’ll delve into the war on crime, taking the fight online across a range of dynamic game modes and maps. You never know, this could be the shake-up Battlefield has needed for a little while now. You can catch this morning’s review here.
Although not a sequel in the traditional sense, Bladestorm is bringing a slew of new content for its debut on new gen consoles. Once again, players will take to war-torn France as an opportunistic mercenary in search of wealth and fame. Many won’t remember the original Bladestorm from when it launched back in 2007 yet, even today, it remains a unique action strategy game worth revisiting. Check out our review.
Next to Final Fantasy Type-0 HD on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One we also have Mario Party 10 arriving on the Wii U. Despite its debut on new hardware, by and large, it’s still the same old Mario Party but with a few new tricks up its sleeve. First and foremost we have the all new Bowser Party game mode, allowing up to four friends to race against Mario’s archenemy. The twist here is that another player will in fact slot themselves into Bowser’s spiky shell, making for some serious party fun. If that tickles your fancy, our review went live yesterday.
