Need for Speed

The latest entry of the Need for Speed series, simply named Need for Speed, hasn’t been received as nicely as other entries of the series due to a several reasons. Developer Ghost Games, however, will be trying to improve things with the game’s first huge update named Icon. All the details on the new update have been shared a few hours ago.

The new Need for Speed 1.03 update adds new Trophies and Achievements to the game as well as several gameplay tweaks and fixes, such as fixed for the AI rubber-banding issues and much more.

Here are the full details of the new Need for Speed 1.03 update.

AI Catch UP

  • One of the key things you have told us since launch was in regards to the balance of the AI Catch Up system. We’ve been reading all of your feedback on this, watching your videos and tuning in to your live streams. With all this feedback in mind we have made changes to the AI behavior which should improve your overall experience.

Community Events

When the update arrives one of the first things you may notice is the new tile on the main menu screen. Located in the bottom left hand corner this tile will be giving you information about any community events that are running, or due to run.

So what’s a community event? We’ve got three types of events that we’ll be running throughout the coming months, each one offering something a little different.

  • Bonus cash events will grant an increase in money
  • Discounts events will offer discounts on various in game items
  • Bonus REP events will reward you with more REP

The first event starts Friday, titled Performance Matters and will offer a 15% discount on all performance upgrades. The perfect time to go upgrade your new ride!

Icon Cars

  • If you’ve already begun your journey through Ventura Bay, you may have got your hands on Nakai-san’s Porsche or the 277 of Magnus Walker. In the next update Ken Block’s Hoonicorn and Morohoshi’ Lamborghini Diablo SV will also be able to be obtained. If you’ve already completed their respective missions the cars will be waiting in the garage for you to purchase, at no cost.

Neon Lights

  • With the Lamborghini Diablo SV or Morohoshi-San being included we thought this would be the perfect opportunity for you to take an early, in development look at neons. They will be applied to Morohoshi’s car only and here’s a taster of what you can expect.

Color Picker 2.0

  • When coloring your car, your rims, or decals you will now be presented with a new color picker. This will feature recent colors, pre-set colors, recent materials, pre-set materials, and numerical values on the color sliders so you can be much more precise when selecting a color or material. Improved functionality around working with colors was one of the big bits of feedback we received in terms of the wrap editor and we’re pleased to be bringing this improved functionality to you all.

Mirror Decal

  • There was resounding feedback from the community during the closed beta and through launch that this was important. Which is why we’ve decided to add it in! When accessing the layers screen there will now be a button prompt that allows you to send any layer from the left side of the car to the right (and vice versa). This works on both the side panels of the car, and side windows.

REP Increase

  • Reputation (REP) is there for the taking and those heading onto the streets of Ventura Bay will now find themselves with even more REP to earn. The REP limit will be increased from 50 to 60.

Daily Challenges

  • Included in the update will be a host of new Daily Challenges, with an eye on balancing the types of events with less focus on Outlaw. Once the update arrives, you will start to see new challenges appearing.

New Trophies and Achievements

There will be three new trophies and achievements for you to earn:

  • Fanboi – Put any of the new icon cars in your garage
  • Iconoclast – Win and event with each of the new icon cars
  • Mental Unblock – Get 350,000 Drift Score in Mental Block using Ken’s Car

Pre-Set Wraps

  • We are expanding on the number of off-the-shelf wraps that are ready for you to use. In total we’ll be included thirty new wraps, ready for you to use across a variety of cars.

General bugs, tweaks and improvements

  • A number of bugs have been fixed. We’ve tweaked things and made adjustments in other areas such as the AI catch-up.

Need for Speed is now available in all regions on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One

The developer of War Thunder says sorry after images of the Challenger space shuttle disaster surface

Gaijin Entertainment, the developer of War Thunder, has recently issued an apology for a concerning oversight in their new key art. Observant fans noticed that the imagery used in the artwork closely resembles the distinct debris trail from the tragic 1986 Challenger space shuttle disaster, which claimed the lives of all seven crew members. Gaijin Entertainment acknowledges this mistake and expresses their regret.

According to Eurogamer, members of the War Thunder community, known for their keen observation skills and ability to uncover classified military information, were quick to spot the striking resemblance between the Challenger’s unique debris field and a key art piece featured in the highly anticipated Seek and Destroy update. The Challenger shuttle tragically broke apart just 70 seconds after launch, an event that was broadcast live on TV. This devastating incident marked a somber milestone in American space flight history, as it was the first time that any fatalities were recorded.

It seems that there was a minor mishap, which is quite unfortunate. A spokesperson from Gaijin Entertainment expressed their apologies for this unfortunate error on the game’s official forums: “We deeply regret this and offer our sincere apologies.” Our artists used an aerial explosion reference pack that contained the image, which resulted in the loss of its original context. We will promptly make changes to this artwork and implement measures to prevent any future occurrences of this nature.

Is it surprising to witness such a notorious explosion depicted in the key art of a video game, or are we simply revealing our age once more? We would greatly appreciate your feedback in the comments section below.

After the recent port to PS5, Microsoft is “really pleased” with the overall sales and performance of Sea of Thieves. As a result, more people are playing the Xbox and PC versions as well. Matt Booty, president of game content and studios at Microsoft Gaming, said this:. He also said that the success of the series means it can grow and that more money should be spent on a Variety podcast interview.

Microsoft is bringing four games that used to only be available on Xbox to other systems. Sea of Thieves was the last of these games to come out. The others are Pentiment, Grounded, and Hi-Fi Rush. Even though things have been going well lately, Booty says that more ports will be dealt with “case-by-case.”

News spread before the port came out that Sea of Thieves was being used as a “key test” to see if more Xbox-only games would be ported to PS5, PS4, and Xbox One. In May 2024, the game was the best-selling PS Store game in both Europe and the US. It also did well in the weekly sales charts.

Aside from the four games that have already been ported to Xbox, nothing else has been officially confirmed. However, news reports say that a lot of exclusive games may be about to come to other platforms. Some say that PS5 games like Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II, Starfield, and a rumored remaster of Halo: Combat Evolved are all being thought about.

The upcoming game from the creators of the Danganronpa series has found a publisher in Sony subsidiary Aniplex. However, it’s worth noting that it won’t be initially released on the PS5. It is highly likely that The Hundred Line: Last Defense Academy will be released on Sony’s system at a later date, just like Master Detective Archives: Rain Code in October. However, the development team is currently focusing on prioritizing the release of their latest title on the Nintendo Switch and PC.

Described as a strategy game, the title allows players to step into the shoes of teenager Takumi Sumino, who resides in the perpetually secure Tokyo Residential Complex. When monsters suddenly unleash chaos upon the town, Takumi finds himself thrust into the Last Defense Academy. His mission? To protect the school alongside 14 other students for a grueling 100 days.

As one would anticipate, alongside the strategic gameplay, it is crucial to foster strong relationships with your comrades. Moreover, the outcome of the game can vary greatly, with a staggering 100 possible endings contingent upon the choices you make. We will reach out to Aniplex to inquire about the possibility of a PS5 port. However, it is important to note that Aniplex operates independently from PlayStation, as it falls under the Sony Music umbrella.
