Rumor: Next ‘Call of Duty’ To Be Set In The Future?

The Call of Duty website has posted a link to a video on YouTube from the FPSRussia channel, that features a futuristic bit of kit, a Quadrotor, with a machine gun attached to it, it is pretty cool. The host of the show says that the piece of weaponry won’t be available for at least 10 years, continuing to say that though it won’t be around for a while, it may be in the next Call of Duty game. Seems like a pretty big hint from Activision to me.

With the reveal of the game set to be in about a weeks time, we don’t have long to wait until we find out the setting of the game, but signs are pointing to a near-future setting.

What do you think? Where will the next Call of Duty be set? If it is in the future is that a good thing? Let us know in the comments below!

New ‘Call of Duty’ Set To Be Revealed May 1st

Revealed through the teaser image above, the next Call of Duty is set to be revealed during the NBA Basketball Playoffs on May 1.

The most likely reveal will be Black Ops 2, which has been rumored for a while now. Activision has said the game will launch this year, but not given a solid date, so expect Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 to be announced and most likely a release date as well.

The Mod Tech YouTube Channel

‘God of War IV’ Revealed as ‘God of War: Ascension’

After Sony teased us last week with a picture that was widely speculated to be related to a new God of War game, the reveal has finally come and yes it is a new God of War.

Titled God of War Ascension, not God of War IV as previously speculated, the game appears as though it will be a prequel, from the trailer it seems as though it will tell the story of Kratos from before he was the Ghost of Sparta, tearing a bloody path through ancient Greece.

The game will be released on the Playstation 3. Welcome back Kratos!

Watch The Cinematic From Bethesda’s New Game ‘Dishonored’

You are the once-trusted bodyguard of the beloved Empress. Framed for her murder, you become an infamous assassin, known only by the disturbing mask that has become your calling card. In a time of uncertainty, when the city is being besieged by plague and ruled by an oppressive government armed with neo-industrial technologies, dark forces conspire to bestow upon you, abilities beyond those of any common man – but at what cost? The truth behind your betrayal is as murky as the waters surrounding the city, and the life you once had is gone forever.

This is the description of the new game from Bethesda Softworks and Arkane Studio, debuting the great cinematic trailer you see below. The game seems to be played like a first person Assassin’s Creed, only your Assassin has superpowers. Along with the powers shown in the trailer such as stopping time, you can also teleport and possess creatures in the game world to use to your advantage.

A novel approach to a largely dominated genre, it will be interesting to see how it turns out.

15 Minute Look At Ghost Recon: Future Soldier Multiplayer

Inside Gaming has posted up a great 15 minute extended look at the multiplayer mode in Ghost Recon: Future Soldier. The video looks at the different modes, weapon customization, custom match setup and how important it is to work as a team!

This game is really shaping up to be something unique and fun I think, the customization system is just huge, with millions of different combinations. The focus on team play should drive away the hero types and campers that play Call of Duty, giving players an experience more in the vein of how the designers intended the game to be played.

Graphics wise the game doesn’t blow my mind, but that could be the low quality of Youtube, I will make my final assessment on that when I play the game on my big screen.

Rumor: God Of War 4 Coming?

Oh I really hope this is for God of War 4!

Posted on the Playstation facebook page, the image above teases a reveal on April 19, by the looks of the image and the popular consensus about the image is it could be a reveal for a new God of War.

The colours of the picture do strike a resemblance to those used for previous God of War ad campaigns and vengeance is Kratos’ thing, so it seems like a pretty safe bet right? I hope so.

Medal of Honor: Warfighter In Action

Get your first glimpse of Medal of Honor: Warfighter in action with this gameplay trailer. The graphics look incredibly good here, with good effects and action, lots of explosions and destruction from what I can see. It seems to definitely be a boost over the original game. Perhaps they have learned from their mistakes and will be bringing us a great game this time around.

Kaz Hirai Reveals His ‘One Sony’ Vision

Sony boss, Kaz Hirai has today outlined his vision for Sony moving forward, the base of his idea is “Sony is positioning digital imaging, game and mobile as the three main focus areas of its electronics business and plans to concentrate investment and technology development resources in these areas,” stated Hirai in a press release.

Riding on the back of the PS3 and Vita which are generating a steady profit for Sony, Hirai stated “By growing these three businesses, Sony aims to generate approximately 70 per cent of total sales and 85 per cent of operating income for the entire electronics business from these categories by FY14 [2013/2014].”

In order to keep Sony generating a profit, the bad news is that Sony will be laying off 10000 employees across all divisions.
