Need For Speed Payback Trailer And Release Date Revealed

Excuse the lateness in getting this out, but a week of trying to wrap reviews up and keep two kids occupied on half term has taken its toll. EA announced this week that Need For Speed Payback is set for a release on November 10th, with a shiny Fast & Furious like trailer to go with it. The game sees you take control of three characters, those characters being Tyler (the Racer), Mac (the Showman), and finally Jess (the Wheelman). The game is set in the underworld of a place called Fortune Valley, with the story set to be a quest for vengeance against the House, a cartel that rules the city’s casinos, criminals and cops. Going through a variety of challenges and events if you wish to get these three characters what they want, the game also features the deepest customization options ever, with players able to craft and personalise a unique ride, or spend hours finding and tuning an abandoned derelict into a supercar.  If you enjoyed previous games in the series, then this looks likes one to watch when it comes releases on November 10th.

Of course, you get to try it out first on Xbox One when it comes to early play on EA Access the week before release. On November 2nd EA Access members will get the standard ten-hour trial, with no mention of a cutoff point in terms of story progression in the press release, but will know more about this closer to the release.

People who pre-order also get a few free gifts, with the basic pre-order giving players a Need for Speed Payback Platinum Car Pack, gaining them instant access to five iconic cars, all of which also have exclusive blue tire smoke. The cars in this pack are a Nissan 350Z 2008, a Chevrolet Camaro SS 1967, a Dodge Charger R/T 1969, a Ford F-150 Raptor 2016, and wrapping things up, a Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport 2016. Going that extra mile and pre-ordering the Need for Speed Deluxe edition, players are given access to the full game three days early (November 7th) too. Along with this, deluxe buyers will also gain access to exclusive customization items such as the Deluxe Edition license plate and NOS colour, in-game discounts, Rep bonuses, plus everything the Platinum Car Pack has to offer, and more.

You can pre-order the both STANDARD and DELUXE editions now on the Xbox store, which you can do so by clicking the version you want on this very post. I will be sure to bring you some early footage of the game when it comes to EA Access later in the year.

HXR Plays - Overwatch Opening Intro + Reaper Gameplay

Today I start a little series on here where I have a little play with 1 of the 21 characters available in the massively addictive game that is Overwatch.

Today sees me show off the opening intro, as well as playing a game with the character known as Reaper. He falls into the offense side when it comes to character selection, and is great if you enjoy a bit of right in your face combat.

Reaper like the other 20 characters in the game has a few specials to play with outside of his standard weapon. Not only do his standard Hellfire shotguns pack a mean punch at close quarters, but he also has Wraith Form (invincible for a short few seconds but not able to shoot), Shadow Step, which is a fancy way of saying teleporting from one place to another, and finally we have his charged special known as Death Blossom. This special sees Reaper spin around for a few seconds while unloading his deadly shotguns, killing anyone who is stupid enough to get in the way.

Review - RiME

Trying to keep a review of a game like RiME spoiler free is a bloody tough task to do, let me tell you. Like so many games these days, RiME isn't just simply a game but is also an experience in which to get the most out of you need to stay well away from idiots like me whose role it is to tell you how good something is. If you know me well enough by now you will know spoilers are never my thing when it comes to reviews. I'm lucky enough to enjoy games without paying my own cash for then every now and then, so those who do go out and spend their hard-earned cash on games need to have the same experience I did with a certain game, and not have a buffoon like me ruin all the best bits for them. If you don't mind spoilers and want a more detailed review of things when it comes to RiME I suggest going elsewhere. This review will be me tip-toeing around things while trying my best to explain why RiME might just be my most enjoyable gaming experience of 2017 so far.
