According to a recent post to the Rockstar Newswire, an upcoming content roll-out (scheduled for March 10) will bring several new modes to GTA Online. Chief among them is Hasta La Vista, which pits a group of players on bikes against a big rig truck whose mission it is to run them down. Channeling your inner T-1,000 will be key, as you will have no weapons at your disposal to prevent them from reaching the safety of the checkpoint.

It seems we’ve slipped into some type of weird parallel universe where Grand Theft Auto is not the preferred sandbox game of choice around the world.
The folks down under apparently don’t cotton to GTA quite as much as we gamers north of the equator, as they instead prefer Ubisoft’s hacking title Watch_Dogs. Apparently its rocky start and mixed reception here in the States and abroad had little effect on the buying habits of the typical Australian consumer, with NPD data showing it took the #2 spot right behind Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare for the year in 2014. So where did Grand Theft Auto land on the charts, you might ask?
Take a look at the breakdown (via GameSpot) below to find out:
1.Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (360, XBO, PS4, PS3, PC)
2.Watch Dogs (PS4, XBO, 360, PS3, PC, NWU)
3.FIFA 15 (360, PS4, XBO, PS3, Wii, 3DS, PSV)
4.Grand Theft Auto V (PS4, XBO, 360, PS3)
5.Minecraft (360, PS3, XBO, PS4)
6.Destiny (XBO, PS4, 360, PS3)
7.Far Cry 4 (PS4, XBO, 360, PS3, PC)
8.Call Of Duty: Ghosts (360, PS3, XBO, PS4, NWU, PC)
9.Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag (360, XBO, PS4, PS3, NWU, PC)
10.Battlefield 4 (XBO, PS4, 360, PS3, PC)
For some, the release of a Metal Gear Solid sequel represents more than just the arrival of a much-anticipated new entry in the franchise; it’s an event of epic portions. In light of this, Konami looks to help those die-hard fans celebrate in style this fall.
The Phantom Pain’s drop has officially been set for September 1 (a bit later in the month for Steam users), which will see its arrival heralded by three different releases. The first is the stand-alone title housing just the game disc itself, while the second and third feature a few more bells and whistles. If you pick up your copy right at launch, you’ll receive the “Day One” edition that comes with a packed-in map and additional DLC (offer not valid on digital downloads).

While there’s no deny 343’s attempt at rolling all the original Halo games into one epic compilation is commendable, the online experience has left a lot to be desired in some respects.
Even months after its release, the matchmaking component of the Halo: Master Chief Collection is still struggling to overcome connectivity and stability problems across the board. Fortunately, 343’s latest patch looks to address many of these hiccups in their continuing efforts to smooth things out.

Microsoft has recently announced that its upcoming multiplayer dungeon crawler, Fable Legends, will be a free-to-play game. In a recent interview, Product Manager Ian Griffiths admits that free-to-play wasn’t the original goal of the project, but they ultimately realized it was the inevitable (and best possible) choice.
“We touched on a number of games that we looked to as awesome of examples of doing free-to-play right, stuff like League of Legends, DOTA 2, Team Fortress 2. That's the direction that we want to go. They're very commercially successful, they're well-loved by their players, and we wanna be in that kind of area…when you fall in love with a game and it's just such a great experience, you get to that point where you want to invest in it,” Griffiths states.
So how will Fable’s non-monetary gameplay work? The developer has given a breakdown on fablelegends.com, which we’ve detailed for you below:
Never let it be sad the Final Fantasy games are rushed to market, as FFXV has been a game almost a decade in the making. However, it seems we may be closer to its release than some may have originally thought.
Hajime Tabata (the game's new director) admits in a recent interview that the game is only little more than half complete as of now, yet gamers should see this as significant progress nonetheless.
“People may look at that and say 'well, you've only done five more percent!' but it's actually a lot more complicated than that…In some ways I'm being very conservative in my estimates there and not wanting to put out too big a number. Developing big games on a large scale like this… it's not very even in terms of each area of the game being created, so you have uneven development processes where some things are nearly done, and others are still at prototype stage,” Tabata reveals.
The biggest takeaway from Tabata’s chat is that Final Fantasy XV is closer than it’s ever been to actually hitting store shelves. Tabata called the recent development a “solid milestone,” and suggested the “end is in sight…After that's released and we continue on with development there may be times where we move on with massive leaps and bounds, so the overall number shoots up by 10 percent at a time. I think we're looking at a much faster development in the near future.”
