Today The Pokémon Company International showcased the Mega-Evolved form of Audino in a new trailer made especially for the crowds at gamescom, taking place this week in Cologne, Germany. Audino was not known to evolve from or to any other form, so this is an interesting twist in the mysterious story of Mega Evolution.

Before Mega Evolving, Audino is known to use the feelers on its ears to tell how others are feeling or when a Pokémon Egg might hatch. It may have either the Healer Ability or the Regenerator Ability. After Mega Evolving, Mega Audino adds Fairy type to its Normal type, automatically gaining all the advantages of Fairy type. Mega Audino always has the Healer Ability.

Thanks to its improved Defense and Special Defense stats, Mega Audino can be a great support in Double Battles. It emits a powerful, soothing pulse from its body that reduces hostility in others and calms any opponent within range. Pokémon should avoid contact with Mega Audino’s new secondary feelers lest they fall into a deep sleep and become easy prey to an opponent’s attacks!

Following the unveiling during the Xbox news briefing at gamescom 2014, Double Eleven and Coffee Stain Studios have announced that gamers will soon be able to embark on the adventure that is Goat Simulator on Xbox One, via the ID@Xbox self-publishing program!

Anton Westbergh CEO, "Getting on Xbox One with the help of Double Eleven is really exciting. Everyone deserves a chance to goat around, and this is one step in the right direction!"

Goalkeepers in FIFA 15 will now look, move, and think like their real world counterparts with new AI that allows them to anticipate shots and passes, move with positional awareness, and display an array of new animations. Next Gen Goalkeepers is just one element of this season’s gameplay innovations that make FIFA 15 more immersive and responsive so fans can Feel the Game.

FIFA 15 adds all 18 clubs from the Turkish Süper Lig and gives the Barclays Premier League, the most played league across EA Sports FIFA, an authenticity overhaul.

Activision and Sledgehammer Games today unveiled a new era for Call of Duty with the world premiere of  Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare multiplayer. Built for next generation gaming systems, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare fundamentally changes Call of Duty multiplayer, delivering new player movements and capabilities, along with the deepest customization and player engagement features in franchise history.

With the all-new exoskeleton, players can boost jump, dodge, dash, slide, slam and more as the action goes vertical, while using future-tech, cutting-edge capabilities and a brand-new weapon class as part of nearly 350 custom weapons. Offering a new reward system, including more than 1,000 in-game player rewards, and nearly limitless customization options that create more than 2 billion unique player combinations and more, the title offers the most in-depth, robust and advanced  Call of Duty multiplayer experience ever on both next generation and current generation systems.

In addition to the multiplayer premiere, Activision today announced the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Day Zero Edition, which offers fans for the first time 24-hour early access to the game starting November 3rd. The  Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Day Zero Edition is available on all platforms to customers who pre-order the game* and pick up on day zero - at no added cost. Collector's Edition copies of  Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare  will also be available for Day Zero early purchase and play, and will include the special  Day Zero Edition content. In addition to the early access of up to 24 hours in some territories, the  Day Zero Edition also includes two new, custom weapons as well as the previously announced Advanced Arsenal incentive.

"With  Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare we introduced the first new lead developer to the franchise in a decade and our first three-year development cycle, with one mission: bring breakthrough innovation to the franchise, while also honoring its roots. We feel Sledgehammer Games has risen to that challenge," said Activision Publishing, Inc.'s CEO, Eric Hirshberg. "Advanced Warfare introduces significant new mechanics to multiplayer that truly change the game, but more importantly just speaking as a gamer it's a hell of a lot of fun."

Three years in the making,  Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare  delivers a new level of tactical combat on all platforms, giving players all-new frenetic ways to move, starting with the power of the exoskeleton. The new gameplay abilities, movements, perks and mechanics expand the verticality of sightlines and maneuverability, increasing the amount of strategic options available to players, while staying true to  Call of Duty's fast, fluid multiplayer experience. Players can combine these new mechanics for offensive, defensive and overall evasive maneuvers unlike anything ever seen in  Call of Duty.

Also, the much loved Pick 10 create-a-class is back with even more customizable options than before with Pick 13. Gamers can now choose their favorite scorestreaks, which are fully customizable, and include them in their preferred class, raising the bar on personalization from top to bottom. The introduction of co-operative scorestreaks also allows friends to experience  Call of Duty multiplayer together in a new way, as for the first time ever, two players can now join a scorestreak and work co-operatively.

The technology of the future in  Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare  wouldn't be complete without advancement in weapon technology, beginning with the debut of a directed energy class of weapons. This all-new weapon class for  Call of Duty uses the power of focused energy to overcome enemies and relies on tactical heat management instead of reloads. Players can test out this new class, along with all their weapons, on the new Virtual Firing Range, a brand new feature that allows players to instantly test-drive their favorite weapon loadout with the click of a button before the next match starts.

"When we set out to envision the 2054 world of  Call of Duty, we spent a lot of time focused on evolving the multiplayer - offering all new experiences to the fans," said Glen Schofield, co-founder and game director of Sledgehammer Games.

"We can't wait for players to discover all of the new movement, mechanics, equipment, and modes built into  Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare,   as well as the depth of customization layered in for the most personalized  Call of Duty multiplayer experience to date," added Michael Condrey, co-founder and head of development of Sledgehammer Games.

Featuring 12 modes out of the box on day one, led by fan-favorites  Capture the Flag and  Hardpoint, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's multiplayer modes not only include classics such as Team Deathmatch, Domination, and Search and Destroy, but also new options for the playlist such as Uplink and Momentum, a new take on the classic War  mode.

Sledgehammer Games is also taking personalization to the next level with Create-an-Operator, a new character system, which allows players to personalize their soldier however they want from heads, helmets, eyewear, shirts, vests, kits, gloves, pants, knee-guards, boots and even the exoskeleton itself. Create-an-Operator is bolstered by a brand new reward system called  Supply Drops. The more someone plays, the more they earn.  Supply Drops can contain anything from custom weapons to unique character gear in different classes of rarity, all giving players multiplayer bragging rights.

In addition to showing off their Supply Drops gear in-game, the new Virtual Lobby lets players display their hard-earned challenge rewards and rare items, while waiting for the map to start. Billions of possible combinations exist, allowing gamers to personalize nearly everything on their in-game operator from head to toe. Players can finally see what their friends and opponents are bringing to the match, as the  Virtual Lobby is a quick and easy way to size up the competition and also plan your next move in create-an-operator.

Led by Sledgehammer Games,  Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is being developed for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.

The ‘Best of British’ Car Pack for GRID Autosport is now available for the Xbox 360, Windows PC and PlayStation 3 priced at £2.39, Codemasters has announced.

The ‘Best of British’ car pack features three stunning vehicles, each engineered and produced in the UK. Gamers can see each of the cars in action in a new video below introduced by Lead Handling Designer Gehan Pathiraja, who comments of the creation process, “We spend hours of research and a lot of time behind the pad and the steering wheel to make them [the cars] as accurate as possible. There’s a lot of work that goes into it to make it feel like that car. Because we’ve taken a handcrafted approach, we really care for the gameplay and we want other people to experience that as well.”

The three cars available in the pack, with accompanying comments from Gehan, are as follows:

1995 McLaren F1 GTR
“We all know the McLaren F1 is an awesome road car – this is the GTR designed for Endurance Racing. It’s got a huge wing that will give you massive downforce in the corners, it’s all about being brave and attacking those corners at speeds you never thought possible.”

2011 Aston Martin Zagato V12
“The Zagato model has bodywork styled by Italian designers, but has a typical Aston Martin V12 engine, very powerful, very torquey. If you can manage the weight and the grip and fire it out the corners, you’ll benefit from all that power from the V12.”

2007 McLaren Mercedes SLR 722
“It’s got a huge supercharged V8 engine that sounds like an old World War Two Spitfire. There’s clearly a lot of power being put out from the V8, and you can really feel that in the car in our game.”


Feral Interactive today announced that the fairytale platforming game Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse, the fantastical re-imagining of the beloved SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive game of the same name, will be released for Mac on Thursday, July 24th.

When Minnie Mouse is kidnapped by the evil witch Mizrabel, it’s up to Mickey to rescue her from Mizrabel’s castle, a magical stronghold where ingeniously challenging levels await the intrepid mouse behind every door. As he ventures deeper into this whimsical world, Mickey discovers that Mizrabel’s powerful illusions make for very real danger.

As Mickey, players will run, jump, swing and swim through a haunted forest, a maze of living books and even a milkshake-flooded candy world as they solve puzzles and confront a series of increasingly tricky tasks and spellbound adversaries in the quest to save Minnie. Brought to life with sparkling graphics inspired by Disney's signature animation style and completely rebuilt from the ground up, Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse recreates the original game’s side-scrolling platform action for new adventurers and veteran heroes alike.

“Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse evokes the storybook feel of classic Disney fairytales,” said David Stephen, Managing Director of Feral Interactive. “Everything from the charming environments to the movements of Mickey and his enchanted adversaries harks back to Disney’s rich legacy of animation.”

Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse for the Mac will retail on the Mac App Store in North America for $14.99, £10.49 in the UK and €13.99 throughout Europe. Prices will vary slightly for versions of the game sold via other stores. Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse for Mac will be available online for direct download from a variety of digital partner sites worldwide including feralinteractive.com, Steam and the Mac App Store.

Minimum system requirements call for a 1.8GHz Intel Mac with at least 4.0GB RAM, 256MB or better graphics card, and Mac OS 10.8.5 or later. The game requires an Nvidia 600 series, an AMD 4000 series or an Intel 4000 graphics card or better. A Steam account is required to access online multiplayer.

GREE, Ubisoft and PlayNext today announced Assassin’s Creed Memories, an all-new free-to-play mobile title coming soon on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. This unique game blends card battle, RPG and strategy elements, introducing players to Abstergo Entertainment’s new mobile Animus. Players will traverse history to build a powerful guild, recruit famous allies and defeat rival players. Assassin’s Creed Memories is currently in soft launch in limited territories and will be available worldwide later this summer.

“The card battle genre has been hugely popular around the world and GREE and PlayNext have demonstrated their know-how and expertise on such games. With such expertise, we really believe they’re bringing a great new way to enjoy the richness of the Assassin’s Creed universe to mobile players,” says Jean Michel Detoc, Managing Director, Ubisoft Mobile Division.

Assassin’s Creed Memories will offer players the opportunity to explore familiar time periods like Renaissance Italy and Colonial America, while also bringing some new eras into play. The game will offer a deep and engaging single-player experience as well as multiplayer combat involving battles of up to 20 versus 20 players. With an emphasis on customisation and strategy, each player will be able to create and build a unique experience as they decide what kind of Assassin they want to be and which fan-favorite allies they want by their side.

Natsume is launching a new series of developer diaries revealing the details behind the upcoming farming-RPG, Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley. Launching exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS later this year, fans have been clamoring for new details about the development behind the game. In the first of a monthly series of diaries, Natsume producer Taka Maekawa reveals the details behind the innovative new tool system.

"When we sat down to design  Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley, we wanted to really study what made the game fun," said Taka Maekawa, who is producing the game. "We wanted to maintain the core value of hard work leading to great rewards, while minimizing anything that may detract from a fun game."

"We took a long, hard look at the tool system and decided to go back to the drawing board," Maekawa continued.  "We came to the conclusion that gameplay should flow, so we made three core changes to the tool system."

The Right Tool For The Job

Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley introduces context-sensitive tools. When a player is standing in front of a tree, for example, there are only certain actions they are logically able to do to the tree. A player can't shear or milk the tree, so if they have an axe in their inventory, the game will automatically know that they want to chop down the tree. All they have to do is walk up to the tree, push the A Button, and they will chop the tree down! Now there is no need to open the menu to select and equip a tool, which slows down the flow of gameplay.

Call On Your Friendly Harvest Sprite To Upgrade

Instead of upgrading their tools, the Harvest Sprites now act as tool upgrades. It can be frustrating, as well as time-consuming, to hunt down the exact type of ore players need to upgrade their tools. Therefore, in the new game, all they have to do is ask the Harvest Sprites for their help, and they'll be able to water their crops, mine material stone, collect lumber, and more. They won't ever have to worry about taking their tools to get upgraded, which will allow them to save time and explore the land!

It’s All In The Bag!

Everything in the player's bag is at their disposal! Since they can stack up to 255 of each item, storage won't be a problem! They won't have to run back to their house, get items from their tool box or refrigerator, and so on, because they can keep everything in their bag. Therefore, when villagers need an item, they won't have to worry about not having it! The player’s trusty bag will help to save tons of time.

In Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley, players will experience the role-playing farm simulation in a three-dimensional setting for the first time. The game has a fully customizable world, and players can customize their field in any way they see fit: from a field full of tulips like they might see in Holland, to a valley filled with water like Venice, the choice is up to them.

Independent developer Rebellion today launched new downloadable content for the chart-topping Sniper Elite 3, including the first mission of a three part singleplayer campaign; Save Churchill.

Save Churchill: Part 1 – In Shadows is now live on Steam for PC, and was released alongside the new Patriot Weapons Pack and a FREE update featuring a new multiplayer map called Airstrip.

The surprise announcement came at the end of a video published on Rebellion’s YouTube channel where team members gave fans a sneak peek at the future of Sniper Elite 3, confirming that all DLC content will be coming to PC, Playstation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.

About the new Save Churchill campaign:

Set after the events of Sniper Elite 3, Save Churchill follows OSS sniper Karl Fairburne in his attempts to uncover and prevent a Nazi assassination attempt on the British Prime Minister in the run up to the famous Casablanca Conference of 1943.

Save Churchill: Part 1 – In Shadows is set in an atmospheric night time re-imagining of the shadowy city of Siwa, but Rebellion’s Head of Creative Tim Jones also promised that the new North African environments in development for parts Two and Three will “blow people away” - including the largest level ever created in the series’ history.

Jones added that Rebellion wanted to offer players who’ve completed Sniper Elite 3’s main campaign “new encounters, new weapons, new unit types ... the new missions are going to feel very different.”

Key facts
  • Save Churchill: Part 1 – In Shadows is a new singleplayer mission for Sniper Elite 3 with co-op support to be added soon. Parts Two and Three will release later in the summer.
  • The Airstrip map is included in a free update, with three more FREE multiplayer also maps due later in the summer.
  • The Patriot Weapons Pack includes three all-American favourites: the Springfield Rifle, M3 Grease Gun and M1911 pistol.
  • All content will be published on PC, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PS3 although release dates will vary.


Majesco Entertainment and Devolver Digital have today announced a retail distribution partnership to release the retro-inspired reboot Shadow Warrior on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this Fall.

“Shadow Warrior turns the 90’s nostalgia meter way up, delivering big guns, big blades and big attitude laced with humor,” said Jesse Sutton, Chief Executive Officer, Majesco Entertainment. “This is a must have title for every kind of fan: those who loved the original game, FPS enthusiasts and players looking for a deep next gen experience at a legacy price point. We’re proud to partner with Devolver to bring this highly rated game to the console audience.”

"Our fans have been very vocal about bringing Shadow Warrior to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One so we're absolutely thrilled to be working with our friends at Majesco to put Wang in a box later this year," said Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker.

Shadow Warrior is a bold new vision of the 1997 cult classic, reimagined with a blend of modern design, inventive combat mechanics, and a contemporary retelling of Lo Wang’s comical rise to legend. The game tells the eccentric tale of Zilla Enterprise’s corporate shogun, Lo Wang, who is ordered by his employer to track down and acquire a legendary blade. Forced into a timeless battle, Lo Wang learns of the blade’s connection to ancient gods from another realm, pushing our world to the brink of destruction. Aided by Hoji, a banished spirit from this mysterious world, Lo Wang must use a masterful combination of gun, blade, magic and wit to discover the truth behind the demonic invasion and banish the encroaching forces back into the darkness.

Developed by Flying Wild Hog,  Shadow Warrior will be available for the suggested retail price of $39.99 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in late September.
