This Week’s Features
Stefan was full of previews this week, starting with a look at Ghost Recon Breakpoint, which aims to build upon the success of Wildlands and also return the series to it’s futuristic warfare roots.
Last up from the previews, he took on the pseudonym Danny Avocado and went hands on with the full career in GRID. It demonstrated the ‘Choreographer’, an AI system that aims to spice up the racing – think of it like Bernie’s sprinklers, but a bit more believable! Oh, and if you fancy taking a look at the game’s multiplayer in action? Well, he’s got a gameplay video for you!
From the other features, Jim pondered if Sony will release any cross-generation exclusives for the PS4 and 5 at launch, or if they will go back and ‘touch up’ a few of this generation’s highlights. Are their any particular games that you’d like to see get a graphical boost?
Heading over to the community, and here’s what you’ve been up to:
- TSBonyman is still hooked on No Man’s Sky, and is looking forward to the next VR improvement patch.
- Battlefield V was Crazy Del’s 401st platinum along with the Wreckfest plat, as he looks forward to a week of Borderlands action!
- MrYd was as busy as usual, with sessions for No Man’s Sky, Plants vs Zombies, Darksiders 3, and is now trying to avoid the PSN sales!
