Halo 5 Forge PC.png

I have to admit i thought i posted about this back in May when i first read this that Forge Halo 5: Guardians Edition was coming to PC.
Now don't get too excited but although it had Halo 5: Guardians Edition in the name it wasn't Halo 5 as most of us would have liked.

Coming in early September (reportedly the 8th) we are getting Halo 5's Forge mode coming to the Windows 10 store. This isn't a full multiplayer system BUT that said there is going to be support for 16 players in forge so its unknown at this time if that means there will be some kind of matchmaking or not but im sure even if there isn't it wont take the lovely halo PC community to make one.

“Halo 5: Forge brings the entire Forge level-creation experience from Halo 5: Guardians to Windows 10, with support for mouse and keyboard for highly refined object placement and manipulation, higher-resolution displays (including 4k) for stunning graphic fidelity, the ability to host...

Red 5 Studios has not been in a healthy state for some time now following layoffs late last year and it sounds like the end has finally arrived.

According to remaining staff at the studio which develops and operates Firefall, they have all been let go. Tweets has gone off from numerous developers. Among these is one of our favorites within the company. Most of you know him as FadedPez. His tweet can be found here: https://twitter.com/FadedPez/status/757697647075467264

The ex-CEO Mark Kern, indicate that this could finally be the end but there has been no official announcement made by the studio or The9 as yet. Mark Kern has seen this coming for some time and has pulled the old Firefall community for a new MMO with the name Ember that would be in the spirit of Firefall. If you want to hear more about it, you can visit the Official Forums, Fan-driven...

Infinity Ward has released a new video over on YouTube (video below) showing off the first 10 minutes of Infinite Warfare.

Despite a lot of hate that the first reveal trailer received (which was uncalled for and turned into a game of how many dislikes can we get this video too) this one at the time of writing this is up to 267,920 views and have double the likes as dislikes which is better than the reveal.

I understand people dont want futuristic multiplayer anymore but from a campaign perspective i REALLY like the look of Infinite Warfare and cant wait to take this for a spin especially when Infinity Ward has said they have really upped the game with the story telling in this game.

Now after watching the gameplay i'm still a little concerned as to how well this runs on PC as the previous titles haven't had the best track record and all i can tell you is that the gameplay was made using a controller but that doesn't mean this isn't PC...
So i was lucky enough to have Mark Kern agree to what i thought would be a quick Q&A session that turned into a 45 min session.

Below is the Video on YouTube of the Q&A but i do need to apologies that Marks Audio got a little corrupted towards the end (the last 5 minutes) but that was literally the last 2 questions and his thanks to the community.

I will be posting a written version of the Q&A once I've had the time to transcribe the recordings here on Coop-Comrades.com.

For now enjoy the video :)

Blizzard recently teased something sniper-related on Twitter. They released the schematics for an advanced sniper rifle that's kitted out for a medic, but it was made clear it wasn't for Mercy.

They have finally released info about the next upcoming hero Ana Amari. All speculations about Ana Amari being Sombra seems to have been wrong.

So who is Ana Amari? She is a as earlier known Pharah's mother and she likes shooting things from really far away.

Ana's going to hit the public test region today, according to Blizzard. Here's a complete rundown of her abilities:
  • Her "Biotic Rifle" first long-range darts that either heal allies or deal ongoing damage to enemies.
  • She also has a Biotic Grenade, which hurts enemies and heals allies. It also places a buff on allies increasing their healing received for the next few seconds, and a debuff on enemies, making...

On July 4th, Blizzard confirmed that "current" game director Josh Mosqueira has left the company.

With this Blizzard put out a open spot as a game director, but one part of this job listing is that the title is:
In the first description they write:
With this set-up, people all around are starting to wonder what this is telling us. Is this a upcoming Diablo 3 expansion, Diablo 4 or maybe even a Diablo MMO. The speculations lead to something new and not a expansion since Josh Mosqueira wouldn't leave if there was more to do with the current...

The game has had (from reading the patch notes) one hell of a major overhaul affecting almost every aspect of the game.

A few weeks ago at E3 2016 ID Software teased the upcoming release of Quake Champions and by the sounds of it my fears were valid as the game is going to be a modern version of Quake Live (there goes my hopes of a new Quake campaign).

That said its come about that Quake Champions will be a PC exclusive as Id Software a have stated that they want the game running at a 120Hz refresh rate as they feel this is vital for the pro gaming experience and this is the reason it will not be making it was to the consoles.

Creative director Tim Willits said in an interview with Gamespot regarding the 120Hz refresh rate:

"That's why it's a PC game. No excuses. No limitations,"

"It's everything from input sampling of the mouse to making sure that your monitor refresh rate is fast enough,"

"Because even with Quake Live, we have found throughout the years that going from 30 to 60 is huge, but even 60 to 120 is noticeable."
