Metal Gear Solid Philanthropy Film Cancelled - briefly
(hx) 05:49 PM EDT - Oct,21 2014 - Post a comment
Hive Division, the folks behind the 2009 fan film Metal Gear Solid Philanthropy - Part 1, has announced that its sequel project is no more. The news comes via press release, which states that, a mere few days before the project's IndieGoGo campaign was to begin, word came down that the project could not proceed. Details are scarce and vague (likely on purpose), but Hive Division says, "The end-result is that MGSP2 cannot be officially authorized and, unlike when we made MGSP1, the risk we would face if we proceeded without proper authorization would be too great."

SEGA has announced that the first add-on pack for Alien: Isolation, Corporate Lockdown, will be released on October 28th.
SEGA today announced that the first of five add-on packs for Alien: Isolation, "Corporate Lockdown", releases October 28, 2014, offering players three new challenging and terrifying maps for the game's Survivor Mode. Each challenge pack offers a new perspective on the events on-board Sevastopol Station in the days before the arrival of the Weyland-Yutani team, with a new playable character, a unique set of objectives and a new game mode.

In "Corporate Lockdown", Seegson Executive Ransome has learnt that he has been abandoned by his paymasters. Knowing that the Torrens is on the way, he decides to make his escape and hitch a ride on board, taking decoded Nostromo data with him. However, while escaping he wants to tie up a few loose ends... Across three new challenge maps, "Severance", "Scorched Earth" and "Loose Ends", players are challenged to compete against others through Alien: Isolation’s online leaderboards, to escape the station in the fastest possible time or attain the top score through numerous side quests and hidden bonus objectives. New to "Corporate Lockdown" is the addition of Gauntlet Mode where players are challenged to top the Gauntlet Mode leaderboards by completing all three challenge maps back-to-back without dying.

"Corporate Lockdown" will be available to download via online marketplaces for available platforms from October 28, priced at MSRP $7.99/€6.99/£5.59 and will be followed by four more packs: "Trauma", "Safe Haven", "Lost Contact" and "The Trigger". Each will feature a new playable character alongside a mix of new maps, objectives and game modes to challenge even the most proficient player. Players wishing to explore every inch of Sevastopol Station can take advantage of the Alien: Isolation Season Pass, offering access to all five Survivor Mode add-on packs at up to a 25% discount. All add-on packs are scheduled to be released by March 2015.

Assassin's Creed co-creator leaves Ubisoft - briefly
(hx) 02:43 AM EDT - Oct,21 2014 - Post a comment
On Monday, Ubisoft Toronto announced that its managing director, Jade Raymond, was parting ways with the game-making company to "pursue future opportunities separately." The co-creator of the Assassin's Creed series and executive producer of its first two games offered a statement within the company's announcement, calling the exit "one of the hardest decisions of my career" while asking fans to "stay tuned for more on what's next for me."

During her tenure at Ubisoft, Raymond was producer on the first Assassin's Creed (2004-2007) and served as executive producer on Assassin's Creed II (2008-2009), Watch_Dogs (2008-2009) and Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist (2010-2013). She also opened the Ubisoft Toronto studio and served as its managing director since 2009, a role she will turn over to Parizeau starting October 29.
I've spent 10 extraordinary years at Ubisoft, and I am proud to have been part of many of the best teams in the industry making truly remarkable games. This is one of the hardest decisions of my career, but the Toronto studio is strong and on a solid path. I'm confident that now is a good time for me to transition leadership of the studio to Alex and to pursue my other ambitions and new opportunities. Stay tuned for more on what's next for me, but for now, I’d like to thank Ubisoft for its partnership through the years, and I wish them the very best in all their next endeavours
It will be interesting to see the new direction of Jade's games, as well as what she will do next.

343 Industries Explains 20GB Day One Patch - console
(hx) 05:38 PM EDT - Oct,20 2014 - Post a comment / read (4)
Following outrage at a 20GB day-one update planned for the upcoming Halo: The Master Chief Collection, head of Halo franchise development Frank O'Connor took to NeoGAF to defend the design decision.
According to O'Connor, that 20GB of data is not a fix for in-game issues, but is instead game content that would have otherwise required that the game ship on multiple Blu-ray discs. "The game is designed to run as a single, unified product, digital is seamless obviously, but we also wanted disc users to have the same experience, without swapping discs," O'Connor told one irate fan. He then added that a title update (read: patch) would be included in the 20GB update, but that it is a "tiny fraction" of the total download. "We realize that this isn't ideal for everyone, but it's the path to the smoothest eventual experience."
