Fortunately, Rocksteady thought of that and is busy creating a Gotham City that will be about five times the size of Arkham City and spread over three islands. The streets will also be wider, to make it more fun to drive around in Batman&rsquo;s tank dragster, while extra effort is also going into making Gotham feel more alive and real - you&rsquo;ll be able to see into buildings through windows and hear noise from the street when indoors.</p> <p>Also, each of Gotham&rsquo;s neighbourhoods are set to have a distinctive look, which should help make it easier to navigate than the samey Arkham City. And while the Scarecrow&rsquo;s Halloween bomb threat has cleared out the civilians, there will be loads of crims around; Rocksteady is promising four times as many thugs as in <em>Arkham City</em> and crowds of as many as 50 people, which you&#39;ll be able to scatter by charging towards them in your Batmobile.

New moves include sneaky &lsquo;Fear Takedowns&rsquo;, which slow time so Batman can take out multiple enemies or hide before being seen, and the ability to disarm thugs and turn their weapons against them. For extra brutality, Batman will also be able to use the environment against enemies, giving you the chance to ram villains&rsquo; heads into vending machines or air-con units. Ouch.</p> <p>Batman will also have a few new gadgets, together with enhanced versions of his existing kit. The new gadgets are still under warps, but there will definitely be a souped-up grapnel gun that&#39;ll allow you to make mid-air U-turns. The gliding mechanic is also getting an overhaul, so that Bats can glide for longer and do more while he is doing so.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/playstation-4/tom-clancy-s-division/review" target="_blank">Tom Clancy&#39;s The Division preview</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="When Batman gives you the elbow, you know about it" alt="Batman Arkham Knight review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Arkham-Knight-game-review-playstation-4-xbox-one-007.jpg?1410402965" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-4"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Supervillains </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Unless there&rsquo;s an awful back-from-the-dead twist that we don&rsquo;t know about, The Joker won&rsquo;t be starring in <em>Arkham Knight</em>.

Both bundles also feature a Steelbook game case, comic book, art book, and character skin pack.</p> <p>Watch the clip above for a stunning glimpse at the game in action, and keep&nbsp;checking back to this preview for more details as soon as we have them.

until he and his family were killed by Sauron and his captains. Except Talion was &#39;banished from death&#39;, revived, and bound to an Elvish Wraith named Celebrimbor, granting them incredible joint power. Celebrimbor is a notable character in Middle-earth lore, having forged the Rings of Power, so the fact that he&#39;s to be a central character here has been hugely well received by hardcore fans.</p> <p class="p2"><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/20-most-exciting-games-left-2014/feature">The 20 most exciting games still to come in 2014</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1600" height="900" title="No cutesy hobbits here" alt="Middle-earth: Shadow Of Mordor review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Shadow-of-Mordor-review-02.jpg?1410402769" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> A familiar Creed </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>It&#39;s unfair to say that <em>Shadow Of Mordor</em> is simply a Lord of the Rings-themed <em>Assassin&#39;s Creed</em> knock-off &ndash; it&#39;s a lot more than that, thankfully.

Seeing Talion run up a wall, climb plank by plank to the roof, then glide down for an assassination, it looks like it was peeled right out of Ubisoft&#39;s historical series.</p> <p>Meanwhile, the combat seems to take its cues from Warner&#39;s own <em>Batman: Arkham</em> series, with combos and counter moves that chain together as you&#39;re attacked by groups of foes. Between these approaches, each big encounter in the game offers multiple paths and philosophies to employ. Do you charge into battle or use your stealth and agility to sneak around unseen?

He&#39;s able to utilise the power to follow enemies into Mordor, and can identify enemies in the Wraith world to read their strengths and weaknesses &ndash; and then alter his battle tactics accordingly back in the living world.</p> <p>Wraith powers manifest in the heat of action, whether it&#39;s teleporting around when in pursuit of a foe or nailing long-range archery shots, but you can also terrorise enemies and take control of them. For example, you can possess an Orc and send him on an assassination mission, or have him spy on or spread fear amidst his allies. Choosing the terror option creates missions in the open world that allow you to pursue different paths.</p> <p>Those are the sorts of things that make <em>Shadow Of Mordor</em> look so compelling: not that it&#39;s a fantasy take on familiar action favorites, but that it uses that seemingly solid core to then venture in new directions and try ambitious new things. And <em>Shadow Of Mordor</em> is generating all the right kind of buzz at the big gaming conventions of late, making it seem like the rare licensed title that feels fully formed and amazing.

On All-Pro difficulty this simulates the sport expertly, and you have to know your HB Cutbacks from your WR Screens to prosper.</p> <p>The blocking game is particularly improved this year. On passing plays linemen make a genuine attempt to form a pocket from which the quarterback can throw, while running with the ball prompts them to properly engage with opponents and form &lsquo;lanes&rsquo; for you to sprint down.

Doing so spins the view around 180 degrees, and means you can at long last see the field with the same clarity as when you&rsquo;re on offense. It makes both tracking down the ball carrier or monitoring a receiver far less cumbersome than in previous years.</p> <p>Still, that doesn&rsquo;t mean it&rsquo;s easier. Improved intelligence means, for instance, that wide receivers use their feet properly to pull in catches seemingly headed out of bounds, so there are still plenty of challenges to relish while you&rsquo;re on &lsquo;D&rsquo;. For those who&rsquo;ve stuck with the series for 26 years, that&rsquo;s where the real thrill is to be found.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/assassins-creed-unity/review">Assassin&#39;s Creed Unity preview</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1600" height="900" title="Madden NFL 15 review" alt="Madden NFL 15 review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Madden-NFL-15-05.jpg?1409070265" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Mighty booth </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Love the presentation found in the PS4 and Xbox One versions of <em>FIFA 14</em>?

<p>There&rsquo;s an eternally frustrating challenge faced by every developer that dares try to make a wrestling videogame.</p> <p>In WWE&rsquo;s choreographed reality, both combatants are working

Animations are hugely improved too, and not just with regard to moves &ndash; wrestlers also stagger slowly (and realistically) to their feet when tired, even using the ropes for leverage where appropriate.</p> <p>Just as importantly, much work has gone into making the crowd look active and alive. There are no sign-waving cardboard cutouts here; every member of the audience is fully 3D, with great variance in ages (lots of kids wearing Cena shirts, for instance) and how they react to big moves.</p> <p>As a result, you feel like the watching masses are invested in whatever story is being told in the ring, rather than going through a procession of canned, emotionless poses.

Much of WWE 2K15 takes place in the Amazonian rainforest, with combatants fighting off hungry crocs and furious mosquitoes midway though matches&hellip; OK, not really. </p> <p>Every bout is of course set in a wrestling ring, but a wealth of modes should ensure the game doesn&rsquo;t stagnate over time despite the predictable surroundings. Case in point: the new MyCareer mode, in which you join the company as a rookie in its NXT developmental division, and progress through matches and storylines en route to the WWE Hall Of Fame.

</p> <p>2K Showcase, meanwhile, has you replaying two classic WWE feuds and unlocking characters, arenas and other bonuses by completing specified objectives along the way. One is the 2002 rivalry between Triple H and Shawn Michaels; the other John Cena vs CM Punk, from 2012. That&rsquo;s a controversial choice given that Punk walked away from WWE, allegedly on bad terms, earlier in the year. Make the most of it, then: he&rsquo;s unlikely to feature in next year&rsquo;s edition.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/naughty-dog/last-us-remastered/review">The Last Of Us Remastered review</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1600" height="900" title="Goldust" alt="WWE 2K15 First Play review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/wwe-2k15-review-golddust.jpg?1409235867" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> GAMEPLAY </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>
As we said at the outset, the reason even non-fans should take notice of <em>WWE 2K15</em> is it makes an impressively convincing fighter. </p> <p>For instance, the addition of chain wrestling sees you locking up with your opponent in a series of mini-games at the start of every match. Win the ensuing scissor-paper-stone mechanic (e.g. circle beats square) and you get the upper hand, and can pound or wrench your opponent for a limited time.&nbsp;To stay in control, you then need to win a race to find a sweet spot on the right stick &ndash; otherwise control shifts to your foe. </p> <p>Stamina and momentum also come into play like never before. Tired wrestlers move around the ring more slowly and are unable to simply spring back to their feet when knocked over - meaning that, for the first time ever, defence is as vital to success as unleashing blockbuster moves. This makes for brilliant exchanges towards the end of bouts, as two exhausted grapplers each desperately try to hit their respective finishing move, all while guarding against being on the receiving end. </p> <p>That sickening feeling when you snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in <em>Street Fighter IV</em>? Finally, it&rsquo;s made it to a wrestling game.

The good news is that this style looks even better in 1080p resolution and at 60fps, while now running smoother than a greasy grunt at the business end of a banshee.</p> <p>As we explored the familiar stairways and boulders, a few other changes stuck out. The HUD in the Remastered mode has been updated, reflecting the newer layouts in more recent <em>Halo</em> titles, and weapons now have large &#39;hold RB to pick up&#39; prompts hovering above them.</p> <p>Thankfully, though, the layout of the map remains the same.

While modern FPS games let you sprint, for example,&nbsp;<em>Halo 2</em>&nbsp;has a constant speed. Jumping around feels slower too, as if the gravity has been cranked down slightly.&nbsp;</p> <p>While this is a little unnerving at first, everyone else is in the same boat. And there are some definite advantages to it. Coupled with our recharging energy shields, we found ourselves living longer than in modern shooters such as <em>Call Of Duty</em> and <em>Battlefield</em>. Living longer = more fun. It&#39;s standard gaming mathematics.</p> <p>So although going back to a ten-year-old game won&#39;t appeal to everyone,&nbsp;those of us who grew up with the <em>Halo</em> universe can start getting very excited. Because&nbsp;<em>The Master Chief Collection</em>, and&nbsp;<em>Halo 2: Anniversary</em>&nbsp;in particular, looks like a wonderful addition to a ground-breaking series.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/microsoft/gamescom-2014/gamescom-2014-ultimate-roundup/feature" target="_blank">Gamescom 2014: the ultimate trailer and news round-up</a></strong></p> <p><iframe frameborder="0" height="180" src="http://pages.haymarket.com/stuff_signup/enews_embed" width="300"></iframe></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1920" height="1080" title="Red vs Blue" alt="Halo 2: Anniversary - first impressions from Gamescom 2014" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/e3-2014-halo-2-anniversary-ascension-first-person---dual-duels-2fe9eab8c60e4bac8a620a54b90a7566.jpg?1408500867" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/microsoft/gamescom-2014/halo-2-anniversary-magic-still-there/feature" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/microsoft/gamescom-2014/halo-2-anniversary-magic-still-there/feature#comments Console games Gamescom 2014 Gaming Microsoft Xbox One Tue, 19 Aug 2014 14:30:51 +0000 Esat Dedezade 1444931 at http://www.stuff.tv Assassin's Creed Unity http://www.stuff.tv/assassins-creed-unity/review <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> The open-world favorite makes its biggest leap yet – into the French Revolution and a truly new-gen engine </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Assassin&#039;s Creed: Unity" alt="Assassin&#039;s Creed: Unity" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/assassins-creed-unity-01.jpg?1408503969" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/users/andrew-hayward" title="View user profile.">Andrew Hayward</a> </div> </div> </div> <p>Last year&#39;s <em><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/playstation-3/assassins-creed-iv-black-flag/review" target="_blank">Assassin&#39;s Creed IV: Black Flag</a> </em>was a welcome seafaring deviation from the usual historical city-tromping escapade, but <em>Assassin&#39;s Creed Unity</em> is the coming-out party for the series on new-gen hardware.</p> <p>Let&#39;s check off the list: a nearly 1:1 scale Paris in the time of the French Revolution;

particularly given the presence of the massive Notre-Dame Cathedral, which Ubisoft spent a year crafting to resemble the real thing. The city of love won&#39;t be so welcoming as the French Revolution rages on, but that ought to make for a great action-game setting.</p> <p>This time around, you&#39;ll take the role of Arno Dorian, an Assassin whose adoptive father was an enemy Templar. His love interest? Also a Templar, named Elise &ndash; so expect some tricky business there.</p> <p>Like his series predecessors, Arno is skilled in both combat and speedy navigation, but has been described by Ubisoft as &quot;more ruthless&quot;. His Phantom Blade modifies the usual hidden blade with a throwing ability, plus Arno wields a French cutlass and a multi-barrel pistol. In sum? Expect plenty of conflict around ol&#39; Paris.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/25-best-fps-games-ever/news">The 30 best first-person shooter games ever</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper youtube-player-wrapper"> <iframe width="640" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/esHd9JlpR2Q" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Assassin&#039;s Creed: Unity" alt="Assassin&#039;s Creed: Unity" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/assassins-creed-unity-05.jpg?1408503969" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" title="Assassin&#039;s Creed: Unity" alt="Assassin&#039;s Creed: Unity" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/assassins-creed-unity-03.jpg?1408503969" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Live together, die alone </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>For the past few entries, <em>Assassin&#39;s Creed</em> has split its gameplay between the standard single-player campaign and a separate online multiplayer mode. And that&#39;s been a largely successful approach &ndash; sometimes more on the competitive end than the narrative adventure side of things.</p> <p>But as its title implies, <em>Unity</em> is all about teamwork, and not in some walled-off side mode &ndash; it&#39;s within the campaign. Granted, the four-player online co-op doesn&#39;t extend throughout the entire campaign, but numerous missions allow you to link up with others and execute grand assaults and assassinations, with each player taking on a unique skill that benefits the team. The fluid, complex E3 demo was enough to convince us of its potential brilliance.</p> <p>Alas, the trade-off here is that <em>Unity</em> will be the first core series entry in five years without a competitive multiplayer component. Still, that seems a fair omission, and since Ubisoft is always working on multiple entries at once across its numerous studios, that&#39;ll give them time to shake things up for next year&#39;s inevitable release.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/20-most-exciting-games-left-2014/feature">The 20 most exciting games still to come in 2014</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Assassin&#039;s Creed: Unity" alt="Assassin&#039;s Creed: Unity" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/assassins-creed-unity-06.jpg?1408503969" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Back to basics </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><em>Unity</em> looks really fabulous in the demos, but we&#39;ll see if it actually runs that well on an <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/microsoft/microsoft-xbox-one/review" target="_blank">Xbox One</a> or <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/playstation-4/review" target="_blank">PlayStation 4</a> &ndash; considering what happened with <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/playstation-4/watchdogs-preview/review" target="_blank">Watch_Dogs</a> between its first demo and eventual release, we&#39;ll have to play this one to believe it. But alongside the promised new-gen visual upgrade comes tweaks to the core fundamentals of the series.</p> <p>For example, the parkour and climbing action features new &quot;Parkour Up&quot; and &quot;Parkour Down&quot; input options, which allow you to better navigate the terrain and chain together really fluid, tricky commands &ndash; such as leaping downwards, swinging from a post for a moment, and then grabbing on to a ledge on a perpendicular wall.</p> <p>On the stealth side of things, you&#39;ll be able to take cover throughout the world rather than relying on groups of gypsies or sitting on benches; you can now crouch to hide behind objects and slip into alleys to try to disappear. And the combat has been overhauled and simplified to focus on attacking, dodging, and parrying, with the footage showing a more diverse array of group kill animations.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/apps-and-games/console-games/top-ten" target="_blank">The 10 best console games in the world right now</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper youtube-player-wrapper"> <iframe width="640" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/cOJ1fG7gc2U" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Assassin&#039;s Creed: Unity" alt="Assassin&#039;s Creed: Unity" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/assassins-creed-unity-04.jpg?1408503969" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" title="Assassin&#039;s Creed: Unity" alt="Assassin&#039;s Creed: Unity" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/assassins-creed-unity-07.jpg?1408503969" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-3"> <div class="field-label">Image #3:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_3" width="1200" height="900" title="Assassin&#039;s Creed: Unity" alt="Assassin&#039;s Creed: Unity" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/assassins-creed-unity-08.jpg?1408503969" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Rogue remains </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Due to its enhanced engine and massive world, <em>Assassin&#39;s Creed Unity</em> won&#39;t be playable on older consoles &ndash; or dated PC hardware, for that matter.

It&#39;s worth noting, however, that there&#39;s a lot more going on onscreen than in most racers. Point tallies, notices about fellow crew members, your speedometer and a small map all take up valuable real estate, and that potential clutter won&#39;t suit all tastes.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/alien-isolation/review">Alien Isolation will have you weeping with space terror</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper youtube-player-wrapper"> <iframe width="640" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/bDiplfxeCI4" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> SETTING </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The Crew&#39;s &#39;idealisation&#39; of America is vast, with 15 million individual objects across the game&#39;s persistent world.</p> <p>These populate the best, most exciting roads in the nation, hence it taking an hour and a half (as opposed to days) to drive across.

Neither is experiencing the game solo, although you can absolutely do that if you wish. No, the big hook is forming a crew - hence the name - alongside three mates and taking on challenges such as a flat-out road race from New York to Miami. The victor gets the best rewards; and those spoils taste sweeter when they&#39;re earned by owning your online buddies, as opposed to three robo-brained AI cars.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/20-amazing-indie-games-you-can-download-right-now/feature">20 amazing indie games you can download right now</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1600" height="900" title="Not sure what that plane is doing here" alt="The Crew PlayStation 4 Xbox One and PC game review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/the-crew-console-game-review-playstation-4-xbox-one-pc-012.jpg?1408325736" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" title="Customisation options will be based on earning money and XP" alt="The Crew PlayStation 4 Xbox One and PC game review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/the-crew-console-game-review-playstation-4-xbox-one-pc-005.jpg?1408325736" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> THE INSIDE VIEW </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The Crew&#39;s car list contains more than 40 vehicles from the likes of BMW, Chevy, Ford and Nissan.

Not just for two to three hours, [but] for 10, 15, 20 hours. [They] upgrade it as much possible, and make it evolve into as many specs as possible.</p> <p>&ldquo;That sort of connection is something [in <em>The Crew</em>] that&#39;s very different from normal racing games. Nothing&#39;s stopping you from choosing another car afterwards, and doing it all again, and buying the parts needed to get it to a similar level. But we&#39;re seeing people have very different behaviours to say, one of our competitors, where it&#39;s all about buying every single car and doing all of the challenges.&rdquo;&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/playstation-4/destiny/review">Destiny Beta review</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" title="There will be more than 40 vehicles in The Crew" alt="The Crew PlayStation 4 Xbox One and PC game review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/the-crew-console-game-review-playstation-4-xbox-one-pc-008.jpg?1408325736" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-3"> <div class="field-label">Image #3:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_3" width="1200" height="900" title="Whatever type of vehicle you want to drive, you&#039;ll be well catered for" alt="The Crew PlayStation 4 Xbox One and PC game review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/the-crew-console-game-review-playstation-4-xbox-one-pc-003.jpg?1408325736" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-4"> <div class="field-label">Image #4:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_4" width="1200" height="900" title="More cars" alt="The Crew PlayStation 4 Xbox One and PC game review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/the-crew-console-game-review-playstation-4-xbox-one-pc-004.jpg?1408325736" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-4"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Last gen&#039;s last ride </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><em>The Crew</em>&nbsp;was designed first for new-gen consoles and PC, and seemed like it would only appear on those platforms - but Ubisoft recently announced that the game will also be ported to Xbox 360 and released on the very same date.</p> <p>Unlike&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/forza-5/first-play-forza-horizon-2/feature"><em>Forza Horizon 2</em></a>, which will be a different experience on Xbox 360, Ubisoft says that&nbsp;<em>The Crew</em>&nbsp;will maintain the same scope and features as its glossier siblings.

From the latest game updates to new episodes of Ridley Scott&#39;s live action <em>Nightfall</em> series, it looks set to be every <em>Halo</em> fan&#39;s go-to source for news and content. Well, other than <em><a href="http://stuff.tv">Stuff.tv</a></em> of course.</p> <p>We also got a first look at the&nbsp;trippy time-bending gameplay of&nbsp;<em>Quantum Break</em>, which looks set to be a powerful exclusive weapon in Microsoft&#39;s arsenal.</p> <p>Indie games received a strong showing this year, with titles such as the surreal<em> Below</em> and action-packed multiplayer online battle arena <em>Smite</em> both looking mighty promising.</p> <p>We also were surprised and delighted to see <em>ScreamRide</em>. Essentially a twisted, futuristic version of <em>Roller Coaster Tycoon</em> (and made by the same developer, Frontier), your aim in it is to create the most insane, heart-stopping rides, with success measured by screams.</p> <p>Anyway, on with the show - here are all of the best trailers from Microsoft&#39;s event, together in one place.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE:&nbsp;<a

date.&nbsp;</p> <p>It also announced the version 2.0 firmware update which brings some tasty new features to the table, including Share Play - a feature that lets friends join your game, even if they don&#39;t own a copy themselves.</p> <p>The PlayStation TV micro-console was also given a European price and release date - &euro;99 on 14 November. The PlayStation Now streaming service received a vague European release date of &#39;2015&#39;, with a beta set to roll out in the UK first.&nbsp;</p> <p>Games-wise, there was plenty to get excited about. We saw the first ever gameplay footage from PS4 exclusive <em>Bloodborne</em>, while horror fans were also treated to announcements for <em>Until Dawn</em> and <em>P.T.</em> - and it turns out the latter is itself a sort of playable announcement [SPOILER ALERT] for a new <em>Silent Hill</em> game by a dream team consisting of <em>Metal Gear Solid</em> legend Hideo Kojima and movie director Guillermo del Toro.</p> <p>Zombie survival favourite&nbsp;<em>DayZ </em>was also revealed to be making its way from PC to the PS4, while a new <em>Destiny</em> trailer showed off snippets of explosive multiplayer action.</p> <p>Sony&#39;s conference had a phenomenally powerful indie line-up, the most interesting (and weirdest) of which was <em>The Tomorrow Children</em>. We have no idea what it&#39;s about, but watch the trailer below and you&#39;ll understand exactly why we want to get our hands on it as soon as possible.</p> <p><em>WiLD</em>, from <em>Rayman</em> creator Michel Ancel, also looks very interesting - although we know very little about it apart from the fact that you&#39;ll be able to play as any living creature in an area that&#39;s the size of Europe.</p> <p>Hideo Kojima himself also made a surprise appearance, showing off an insane <em>Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain</em> video in which the trusty cardboard box gets used in bizarre (and juvenile) ways.</p> <p>Anyway, enough talk. Here are all of the trailers from Sony&#39;s Gamescom showing this year:</p> <p><strong>READ MORE:&nbsp;<a
