Persona 5’s official website hints at incoming announcement

Details on Atlus’ long awaited Persona 5 have been scarce to say the least in recent months, but we might not have to wait much longer. Persona 5’s official website has posted a running countdown clock that will expire in just a couple of weeks on May 5th.

We know that Atlus’s official stance is that the game is coming out sometime this summer, so it’s possible that the reveal might just be a release date. *fingers crossed*

Originally, Persona 5 was supposed to land in 2015, but was delayed at TGS 2015. There have been a few details that have trickled out in regards to dungeon changes and and storyline, but suffice it to say, we could use a new kickass trailer and official release date to get this hype train rolling.

Rumor: Red Dead Redemption 2 map leaks online

Red Dead Redemption has been a fan favorite ever since it launched back in 2010 and since then, fans have been hoping & praying for a sequel. However, with all the recent rumors, no one could tell if it will become official or not, until now that is.

 

Earlier today, the reported Red Dead Redemption 2 map was leaked online. It was first spotted on NeoGaf by user Mideon that claims he received it from a source he will not mention. Soon after, the image was taken down, but by then it was too late and the image was scattered across the internet.

 

TechRadar followed up on the rumored map by stating that the “map is indeed the real deal” from a source close to the development of the new Red Dead game.

 

Take a look at the screenshot down below:

 

 

TechRadar’s source not only confirms that this is a very recent, and a real copy of the map, but also confirms that instead of a proper sequel, the game will be a prequel. The lack of railroad tracks matches the claim of a prequel title.

 

However, despite the missing railroads, it looks like a new gameplay feature will include boat travel. As you can see in the picture above, the right side is filled with little islands which will presumably be able to explore either by boat or swimming. The game is “supposedly” taking place a little more East than the original game, as you can see from the image down below, there is a lot of similarities between the two maps.

 

 

There has yet to be any official word from Rockstar on the rumored Red Dead Redemption 2, but if the rumors are to be true then we will be seeing the announcement at E3 2016. But we have are reasons on why all these RDR rumors are most likely fake, click here to read more on that.

 

Let us know in the comments below if you like the idea of a prequel Red Dead Redemption instead of a sequel!

EA unhappy with Mass Effect appearance in Donald Trump advert

United States presidential candidate Donald Trump’s latest campaign ad includes “unauthorized use” of the Mass Effect IP, according to publisher EA.

The advert in question, aptly titled the Trump Effect, was retweeted by Trump earlier today, shortly before it was pulled from YouTube due to a copyright claim by EA. The two-and-a-half-minute fan-made video features Mass Effect music and Mass Effect 2 voice work by Martin Sheen. At the time of writing, it is still viewable via the candidate’s Twitter.

Suffice it to say, EA was not pleased with the parody ad. “We do not support our assets being used in political campaigns,” the publisher told GameInformer.

Some Mass Effect creators are none too pleased, either. Bioware game designer Manveer Heir tweeted some thoughts of his own:

Destiny: Xur, Agent of the Nine, Tower location and Exotic gear

Xur is back in Destiny and he may or may not have exactly what you need. If you have been looking for some sweet Titan chest armor, he has some. If you're a Warlock or Hunter in need of head gear, he's got that too. Xur even went out of his way and pickedup a Hawkmoon hand cannon.

You'll find him by the Crucible Quartermaster.

Each Final Fantasy 7 Remake episode will be as large as one Final Fantasy 13 game

More details about the upcoming episodic Final Fantasy 7 Remake were revealed in the latest issue of Game Informer. We've known for a while now that each episode will be as large as a full scale game, but we now have a bit more clarity on how Square Enix is going about that. According to the game's Producer, Yoshinori Kitase, the Final Fantasy 7 Remake will use the Final Fantasy XIII series as a blueprint for how the company will release each installment.

Said Kitase:

It will essentially be a full scale game for each part of the multi-part series. In XIII, each installment told the story from a different angle. It was kind of like approaching an unknown territory in a sense.

 

Whereas with Final Fantasy VII Remake, we already have a preexisting story, so it wouldn't really make sense if that isn't encompassed in a multi-part series… So if we're just looking at each of these parts, one part should be on par with the scale of one Final Fantasy XIII game.

There's still no word on how many episodes we will see, but given that the company is leaning on the Final Fantasy XIII formula, it stands to reason that this could very well be a trilogy. After all trilogies aren't exactly unheard of these days.

 

It's also reasonable that we aren't likely to get the first episode anytime soon, as all that's really confirmed is that the first scenario of the the first episode is complete and that the game will either be an explorable sand box or open world.

 

In any event, 2016 is going to be the year of Final Fantasy XV, the latest main entry in the series and a "theme park" attraction as described by Game Director, Hajime Tabata.

 

 

Former Rockstar executive suing company for $150 million in unpaid royalties

Former President of Rockstar Leslie Benzies is now suing the company for over $150 million in unpaid royalties he says are owed to him after he was allegedly forced out from the company after taking a sabbatical.

Benzies took a sabbatical from the company beginning in September of 2014 which ended in reports of him leaving the company this past January. Benzies is stating he was forced to leave the company and was ordered to leave the company's office when he tried to return to work on April 1, 2015. Attorneys for Benzies are stating the following: 

"While on sabbatical, Mr. Benzies discovered numerous deceptions on the part of Take-Two, Rockstar, Rockstar North Ltd, Sam Houser and Dan Houser, who sought to force him out of the company and terminate his portion of royalty payments based upon arbitrary actions by the company's royalty Allocation Committee, a committee that may or may not have actually ever met."

Current President Strauss Zelnick commented on a conference call about Benzies' departure only by saying, "I can confirm that Leslie Benzies went on sabbatical in September of 2014," Zelnick said, according to a transcript of the call. "He's decided not to return to Rockstar Games." 

We'll have to see how this plays out, as Rockstar is also undergoing the ridiculous lawsuit by Lindsey Lohan currently. What do you think about this? Let us know below. It is one huge GTA V bounty though that's for sure. 

Thanks Polygon

The people wanted it, so the people got it. Call of Duty 4 will be remastered, but Activision didn't say what the remastered version would include, some new rumors about what the game will include have begun surfacing.

The remastered version of Call of duty 4: Modern Warfare was "confirmed" yesterday by Activision, but they did not say anything on what the game would include. 

Today, the people on NeoGaf spotted a marketing image for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare had surfaced online which included some information about the Modern Warfare remaster. Apparently the remaster will include the full single player campaign as well as ten multiplayer maps

The leaked image (shown above) also showed that the next Call of Duty will be released in two editions; the Standard which will only include the new game and a Legacy edition which will include both the new and the old game.

Remember: this is still just a rumor and Activision has not expressively announced Infinite Warfare yet, nor have they released any official information on what the remaster will include,
