Starting Feb 3rd, players will be able to jump into an open beta test for Battlefield Hardline. Looks great and I’m really looking forward to giving it a try.
A new trailer has also been released, which shows a nice mix of the game’s multiplayer and single player. Normally I wouldn’t go near a BF campaign with a 10ft bargepole, but with Visceral in charge this time around, I must admit I’m suitably intrigued.
Hopefully EA and crew can prove that this is a completely new BF experience and not just an overpriced BF4 expansion pack.
Following the pattern set by pretty much every other game these days, Resident Evil Revelations 2 will feature a micro transaction system.
This will be limited to the game’s RAID mode and allows players to purchase life crystals, essentially allowing them to continue a mission if they die. Capcom went on to say that players will also be able to unlock these crystals by completing daily challenges.
Personally I’m not a fan of this approach as it removes all challenge from the game. Yes they are optional but what’s the point of slogging through a difficult mission to gain an upgrade if someone with an infinite wallet can just buy their way to the same result?
Resident Evil Revelations 2 is almost here and so too is the series’ popular RAID mode.
Capcom has released a sizable 20 minute video showing off the mode in action and its looking pretty great to me. The introduction of different elements (Ice, Fire) is certainly a nice touch 🙂
Revelations 2 launches its first chapter next month, while the complete package will release on disk in March.
