Latest Red Dead 2 Gameplay Demo Details Its Scale.

Rockstar Games released the second, and what might be the last, gameplay video of their forthcoming title Red Dead Redemption 2 yesterday and gaming fans were not left disappointed.

The four minute video revealed more details about the various activities a player can do, raning from large scale bank and train robberries to playing poker and fishing.

It’s the sheer scale of pursuits and undertakings which looks to set Red Dead 2 aside from the rest, making it one of the most ambitious open world games from Rockstar yet.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is released October 26th.

GTA:V Fan Film Starring Steven Ogg aka Trevor.

 

Ever since the release of Rockstar’s sandbox, open-world game Grand Theft Auto V we’ve kept a close eye on the rise of actor Steven Ogg.

Ogg, who provided the voice and was motion captured for the game’s deranged and depraved protagonist Trevor, has since popped up filling out roles in Better Call Saul, The Walking Dead and more recently Westworld and his latest appearance in a viral fan film for GTA:V is garnering a load of attention.

Ogg once again reprises his gaming role of Trevor but this time in the flesh as he guides a player around the virtual reality version of the hit game.

 

 

Rockstar Announce First Person GTA V For Next Gens.

Come November 18th if you happen to own a PS4 or Xbox One and you intend to purchase the updated and improved version of Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto V, you will be able to play the game exclusively in first person mode.

In a revolutionary move by the game developers they’re hoping that the once traditonally top down game will now give players an altogether new experience as they re-explore Los Santos and Blaine County and if that wasn’t enough they’ve also announced even more bells and whistles. On their official website they declared the following:

Available in both GTAV and GTA Online, we’ve made a host of changes to accommodate this new perspective, including the creation of an optional first person cover system, a new targeting system, a more traditional FPS control scheme, and integrating thousands of new animations into the existing game. It’s also available at the touch of a button so you can easily switch back and forth between perspectives.

Alongside the new First Person mode, Grand Theft Auto V for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC features hundreds of additions and enhancements including 1080p resolution at 30FPS on PS4 and Xbox One (4K compatible on PC).

There you have it first person mode will be available both in-game and online which alters the contact a player will have with the world of GTA V.

Rockstar To Give GTA V Online Players $500,000 Of In-Game Money.

actual_1381450954v2

To cut a long, boring and convoluted story short the launch of Rockstar’s online branch of their current Grand Theft Auto game has been a tad problematic for some gamers, proving for many a difficult game to access and save progress on.

As millions of lonely, socially awkward and sun depraved individuals threw a collective hissy fit over the problems with the online game it became increasingly apparent that developers Rockstar needed to put together some sort of compensation reward for the legions of whiney faced gurners.

Following an update which will further sort out remaining problems with the online game, players will now receive a special ‘stimulus package‘, ( in an effort to silence their petulant howls of passive rage) as Rockstar’s official website explains:

  • You must play or have played Grand Theft Auto Online at any time during the month of October 2013 in order to qualify for the GTA$500,000 deposit in your in-game bank account.

  • Players will first have to install a forthcoming GTAV title update which we expect to happen next week. That title update (1.04) is expected to fix the remaining instances of issues that have caused vehicle purchase loss and will also enable the functionality through which we’ll be providing this GTA$ stimulus cash to players.

  • We will announce at the Rockstar Newswire when each deposit is made.

  • Each of the two GTA$250,000 deposits will be made by Rockstar and should automatically appear in the in-game GTA Online bank accounts of eligible players. Beyond downloading the forthcoming title update mentioned above, there should not be any additional special action required by eligible players to redeem.
