LVLONE Weekly Roundup: The Evil Within gets release date, Battlefield Hardline announced, Quantum Break delayed and more.
Welcome to another LVLONE Weekly roundup where we give you the best gaming highlights. This week we have a semi-game announcement, new game release dates, game delays and what would we be without our pick of the week.
New release dates
Looks like the release date for The Evil Within has be revealed. The game will be available in the US on October 21, in Australia on October 23, and throughout Europe on October 24 of this year for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3 and PS4. The game needed more time to balance and to be refined in order to delver a terrifying experience of pure survival horror. Their are also pre-order incentives as well, the Fighting Chance Pack provides players with a handful of additional items that may help them stave off death for a moment longer.
Earlier in the week a new Battlefield had been leaked from assets that came from EA’s official site but was then confirmed by the company. Battlefield Hardline is not being entirely developed by DICE but rather Visceral Games as well, makers of Dead Space. The game takes on the urban warfare roles with cops, robbers, common criminals etc. They will be providing more detail on the game at their press conference during E3 week but for now check out this 7minute video of the game which is said to be of an earlier build.
Remedy, the developers of Quantum Break have said to not expect the game until 2015. They are looking to bring the full entertainment experience like nothing you’ve seen before and while some would assume the game will show it’s face at E3 it will make its real debut at Gamescon in August. You can check out the teaser with a glimpse of what’s to come.
We’re no stranger to PS4 game delays at this point but here comes another one. Looks like PS4 exclusive The Order 1886 has been delayed and will now be released in Early 2015, developer Ready at Dawn has announced. The developer has noted that it needed the time to work out technical issues along with getting the game right. We haven’t seen much of the game to begin with but what we have seen is gorgeous and eerily resembles Gears of War mechanics. Expect to see more of the game at E3 in the coming weeks.
Pick of the Week
While this actually came out last week it would be hard to not get this out there. Ubisoft partnered with Smoshs Youtube and Rob Dyrdek for a promotional Watch Dogs video. If you’ve wondered what Aiden Pearces smartphone that he uses in the game is like, it might go a little something like the video shown, although we’re not sure if Rob Dyrdek is the first person you’d want to give it too.
Stay tuned for next weeks roundup as we’ll only be days away from E3 at that point and you can get all the coverage here!
