Xbox Wire announced today the games which would be featured in their Games with Gold promotion. Earlier this month they advised us on a surprise and told everyone to be on the look out for more games. Which games would be chosen and how many was left to ponder. Larry Hryb, Xbox’s Major Nelson, took to his twitter handle @MajorNelson, to announce the double feature April Surprise:
Ubisoft has announced that the Valley of the Yetis will take on the daunting task of combining ancient mythology in a realistic themed game. They want players to fear for their lives while trying to survive and defeat the legend, the Yeti. Yetis, as they are known to some, are also known as big foot, abominable snowman, etc. I am sure we all have heard of him some how.
The DLC pack launches on March 10th for the PlayStation 3 & 4, Xbox 360 & One, as well as, the PC. Are you excited for this? Far Cry 4, although mimicking and even being accused of a reskin of sorts of its elder brother FC3, brought an amazing open-world experience to the new generation in gaming. I highly recommend buying it if you haven’t already. Alex Hutchinson, the game director behind its’ genius, has an amazing knack for creating great games. He helped lead the group who made the Assassins Creed series, too! A little FYI for those who didn’t know.
Rockstar sent an email to members of the GTA V social club. Inside, contained some of the most wanted information in recent months, were the release dates. The Rockstar Propaganda, as it was referred to, updated the community of the up and coming, Heists DLC – which features online, 4 player co-op teams. It looks as if many people won’t have to leave home this year for spring break. GTA V Online Heists goes live March 10th, 2015. So enjoy! You will have plenty of time to sit back and immerse yourself into Los Santos, and no school to worry about.
Rockstar also took the time to announce that the entire game, including Heists, would be released on April 14th, 2015, for the PC. It would seem that day has finally come and users who have waited or who want to experience the new editor, we have a set date! With the new delay anybody who has pre-ordered the game will receive an additional $200,ooo to use in the game. The PC version will be Rockstar’s most graphically and technically advanced version of the game yet and will be fully optimized to support a broad range of current hardware and system configurations. It features a host of PC-specific enhancements, such as, including greater levels of detail, deep configuration options, and ultra-high-definition support. To top things off, Rockstar, has included a powerful new Rockstar Editor. The Rockstar Editor can be used for recording, staging and editing original custom videos, making a complete and entirely new means of catching the craziest events around Los Santos.
They were thankful to the gamers who have supported them by sending useful feedback since its release. This helped them in developing the online world into what it is today, and will soon be expanding. Rockstar went further and provided an email address, GTAOnline@rockstargames.com, and their website, Rockstar Games Support, for those who wish to continue to send feedback– “We’ll be closely monitoring the situation and addressing any hitches as quickly as we can.”
