    Free-to-play Spartacus Legends launching next week

    By GameSpot,

    New action game from Ubisoft releasing June 25 on PSN and June 26 on Xbox Live.




    Free-to-play action game Spartacus Legends, based on the Starz TV show, will launch next week digitally for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, Ubisoft has announced.



    The game will hit PlayStation Network June 25, followed by Xbox Live on June 26. PSN dates for Europe, Japan, and Asia will be announced shortly, Ubisoft said.


    Though the game will be free to play, it will offer various equipment options for purchase.


    Spartacus Legends players will experience the life of a gladiator, from practicing on training grounds to participating in battles in the arena.


    Players will be able to fight as Spartacus, Crixus, or a user-created gladiator and take part in fights with friends locally or via online multiplayer. The game also sports a worldwide leaderboard, as well as the voice and likeness of Liam McIntyre, who plays Spartacus on the TV show.

    Bethesda didn't want to "force" multiplayer into new Wolfenstein

    By GameSpot,

    Publisher says it never pushed Machine Games to include a multiplayer component in upcoming shooter.




    Some fans may have been miffed to learn the upcoming first-person shooter Wolfenstein: The New Order would not include a multiplayer component, but according to Bethesda, such a mode didn't fit in with Machine Games' creative vision for the game.



    "We talked to Machine Games about the game they wanted to make and multiplayer wasn't in their thought process," Bethesda marketing VP Pete Hines told Eurogamer.


    He explained that just because past games in the Wolfenstein series did include multiplayer, that doesn't mean all entries must.


    "We're not going to force it down their throats and say, 'Well, the last games did, so you have to do it.' These guys do cool stuff," Hines said. "If you look at The Chronicles of Riddick or you look at The Darkness, those games have a creative element to them that is similar to the things they're doing in Wolfenstein and that's what attracted us to them, and that's what attracted us to their vision of Wolfenstein."


    "And we said 'Okay, run with that.' We're not going to say, 'Oh, we'll find somebody else to do the multiplayer.'"


    Bethesda is no stranger to publishing high-profile single-player-only games. The studio is also behind franchises like The Elder Scrolls, Fallout, and Dishonored.


    Wolfenstein: The New Order launches for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC later this year.

    Assassin's Creed IV DLC features a new assassin

    By GameSpot,

    Single-player DLC for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag will revolve around Adewale, who serves as Captain Edward Kenway's first mate.




    A Best Buy listing (spotted on AllGamesBeta) has unveiled the season pass DLC for the upcoming Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. The content will revolve around a new assassin, Adewale, who serves as Captain Edward Kenway's first mate.




    The main campaign for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag focuses on Edward Kenway, grandfather of Assassin's Creed III protagonist Connor.


    Best Buy has priced the AC4 season pass at $19.99, claiming a saving of $20 on buying all the Assassin's Creed IV content separately. The DLC will reportedly contain new single-player and multiplayer missions, alongside new customisation options.


    Assassin's Creed III's single-player DLC took place over three chapters, focusing on a alternate reality storyline where George Washington declared himself King, and protagonist Connor inherited a set of super powers.


    This year's Assassin's Creed will also be a launch title for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

    F-Zero future uncertain, says Miyamoto

    By GameSpot,

    Nintendo visionary can't see what could be added to the racer "that would really turn it into a great game again."




    Nintendo visionary Shigeru Miyamoto has cast doubt on the company returning to its sci-fi racing series F-Zero in the near future.




    Speaking to IGN, Miyamoto said a lack of new ideas was stopping Nintendo from making a new entry in the series. "I certainly understand that people want a new F-Zero game," said Miyamoto. "I think where I struggle is that I don't really have a good idea for what's new that we could bring to F-Zero that would really turn it into a great game again."


    The debut trailer for Mario Kart 8 on the Wii U showed sloped and vertical courses in a fashion similar to F-Zero's futuristic tracks, and Miyamoto acknowledges the connection. "Certainly I can see how people looking at Mario Kart 8 could see, through the anti-gravity, a connection to F-Zero. But I don�t know, at this point, what direction we could go in with a new F-Zero."


    The last F-Zero game, F-Zero GX on the Gamecube, was developed by Sega and released in 2003. Miyamoto also adds that Nintendo would rather not have its games developed externally now.


    "Obviously in the past we�ve tried to work with other companies, where we�ve let them develop games for us in franchises like Star Fox and F-Zero, but the more we think about it, the more we prefer to be able to create those games internally, on our own."


    "We�ve obviously, as I mentioned, been working on what we can do to increase our internal staff in a way that will allow us to have more projects going at the same time, so we can create new games and work on additional old IP and still maintain the other primary franchises that people want to see."

    Surgeon Simulator 2013 gets Team Fortress 2 update

    By GameSpot,

    Play as the Medic and operate on the Heavy.




    Indie hit Surgeon Simulator 2013 will be getting an update today allowing users to play as Team Fortress 2's Medic and operate on the Heavy.




    The update will be free for owners of the game on Steam, and will be released today at 18:00 BST/10:00 PST.


    The early prototype for Surgeon Simulator 2013 was originally developed in 48 hours in January as part of the 2013 Global Game Jam. The full version of the game was released in April. The game involves the player attempting to perform various difficult surgical procedures with one in-game hand.


    "This is a game that makes it an absolute joy to not only FAIL, but FAIL spectacularly," said GameSpot in its Surgeon Simulator 2013 review.

    Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition taken down from online stores

    By GameSpot,

    Remake of classic RPG series removed from Apple app store and Beamdog site due to unresolved legal issues.




    Beamdog and Overhaul Games have taken down their Baldur's Gate remake--Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition--from online stores.



    The enhanced version of Baldur's Gate won't be available for a while.



    The PC, Mac, and iOS RPG remake is no longer available on Beamdog's site or the Apple app store. Beamdog and Overhaul Games president Trent Oster said that this was due to the company attempting to "resolve a number of contractual issues." This also means that the company cannot release the latest patch and an Android version of the remake.


    Oster also added that the same issues will also prevent the launch of Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition. For more information, check out the post on the official site.
