Upcoming Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy Gets Two Mysterious DLC Trophies

Earlier this month, we shared trophy lists for the upcoming Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, which comes with three separate lists and Platinums for each of the games. However, it looks like there’s a little more on the way for the first game as two DLC trophies popped up on Exophase separately yesterday. Spotted by Twitter user Wario64 (via NeoGAF), the two trophies belong to the “Lost Treasures” DLC for Crash Bandicoot, and their descriptions are a bit vague. You can find them below. The Crown Jewel (Silver) – Seek and destroy An Ancient Antiquity (Gold) – Do hard time Vicarious Visions and Activision have made no mention of Lost Treasures so we can’t say what the DLC is about and whether it’s paid or free. Meanwhile, some users are speculating the inclusion of cut levels from the original game. Whatever the case, we’ll keep our readers posted. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy releases for PlayStation 4 on June 30. [Source: Exophase via Wario64 (Twitter), NeoGAF] READ FULL STORY AT PLAYSTATIONLIFESTYLE!

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered Standalone Available Next Week

Where there’s smoke, there’s fire. As rumors led us to believe, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is getting a standalone release. Activision announced today that the title will release June 27 for PlayStation 4. Costing $39.99, it will be a part of the PlayStation Network’s “Days of Summer” campaign. While it’s only releasing on PS4 at the moment, other platforms will follow later. “It’s been an honor to bring this great title, which holds such a special place in our hearts, to a new generation of players,” said Raven Software’s studio head Brian Raffel. “With Modern Warfare Remastered, we’re able to relive our favorite campaign levels and multiplayer moments in full HD visuals and remastered audio.  No detail was too small, as the team pored over every aspect of development.” To celebrate the announcement, a new trailer was released. Check it out below:[embedded content] PlayStation LifeStyle’s Paulmichael Contreras enjoyed his time with the remastered version of Call of Duty 4, and had this to say in his impressions: Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare may be old by, well, modern standards, but its gameplay holds up very well. Controls are responsive, and missing your target is usually simply your own fault. READ FULL…

Destiny’s Trials of Osiris and Iron Banner Are Gone After August

Every week Bungie gives an update on the ever evolving world of Destiny, and this week’s edition comes with some bittersweet news. Two of the first-person shooter’s most popular events, the Trials of Osiris and Iron Banner, will be ending in August. They aren’t gone for good, though, as Bungie says they are merely going into “hibernation” until Destiny 2 releases on September 6, 2017. Here’s the official announcement via the Destiny blog: Live Game Transitions Destiny 2 is rapidly approaching, like a sneak attack that’s just about to crest the horizon. This means that our two competitive end game experiences will be going into hibernation before reemerging to spread their beautiful wings in unexpected ways in Destiny 2. If you fancy yourself forged in the fires of the Crucible, you’ll want to mark these dates: August 1, 2017: Final Destiny 1-era Iron Banner August 11, 2017: Final Destiny 1-era Trials of Osiris This is a big blow to the end game of the original Destiny, but it makes sense considering Activision is trying to get active players to move forward to the sequel. Other big news from this week’s post is that PlayStation exclusive content is finally coming to READ FULL STORY AT PLAYSTATIONLIFESTYLE!

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy Trailer Is a Throwback to the ’90s

[embedded content] If you’re old enough (like I am) to have witnessed the birth of one-time Sony PlayStation mascot Crash Bandicoot way back in the early ’90s, then you surely remembered the live-action commercials Sony rolled out wherein a man puts on a Crash Bandicoot costume and does all sorts of silly stuff (one of them even has Crash bringing the fight to Nintendo HQ!). Activision seems to have a thing for nostalgia as we get to see Crash workout in a new trailer for Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy! Watch a real life Crash Bandicoot workout, which is Activision’s way of saying that Crash is now buff in the new remake (buffed graphics, not a muscled out Crash). In other Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy news, It’s been announced that gamers will be able to play as Crash’s sister Coco in all three games in the collection. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy will spin its way out this June 30 on the PlayStation 4. READ FULL STORY AT PLAYSTATIONLIFESTYLE!

30 Minutes With Call of Duty WWII: Thrilling, But Familiar

Last week at E3, I got to play multiple rounds of Call of Duty: WWII’s multiplayer. While the core experience feels similar to previous games, a focus on presentation and a new story-based mode made things much more interesting than recent entries in the series. My main takeaway from my time playing Call of Duty: WWII is that I was totally engrossed in the matches I played even if the majority of the gameplay was standard for the series. My first two matches were a traditional Team Deathmatch and the zone capturing Hardpoint. They were familiar, allowing me to ease in and experience with the game’s new class based system: Divisions. With Divisions, players can select from a group of specialized battalions, each with a specific focus. Airborne soldiers functioned as scouts, with the ability to put suppressors on their guns and rush around the battlefield. The Infantry were standard grunts and used weapons familiar to anyone with World War Two including the M1 Garand. A few classes were more specialized; Mountain Division soldiers were a class of snipers while the Armored Division loaded up with heavy weapons like machine guns and bazookas. The most interesting of them all was…

This Is How Call of Duty: WWII Is Handling Swastikas and Female Soldiers

With the next major entry in the Call of Duty franchise being set in World War II, the development team at Sledgehammer Games had to figure out how they would handle depicting both Nazi iconography such as swastikas as well as female soldiers on the Axis side in their latest shooter. Talking to Eurogamer at E3, Sledgehammer Games Co-Founder Michael Condrey said that while swastikas will be visible during the single-player campaign, they will not be included in the game’s multiplayer. In campaign, we need to balance the authenticity with the respect for the fact 100 million people died in the darkest days of humanity. So, you will see the swastika in the campaign, using our military historian to make sure it’s authentic, tasteful and respectful. But in our global community of multiplayer and zombies players, we’ve chosen deliberately not to include that. We want the community to play together. We want to be respectful of local customs and laws around the world. And frankly it’s a dark symbol with a lot of emotion behind it we don’t feel matches our multiplayer experience. As for female soldiers on the Axis side, Condrey explained that while they will READ FULL STORY…

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered for PS4 Is Reportedly Being Shipped to Retailers

It looks like the long-rumored standalone version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered for PlayStation 4 is releasing on June 27 for $39.99 USD. According to images and information sent to Charlie Intel, Walmart is already putting up $39.99 stickers for Modern Warfare Remastered in their stores. Additionally, a tipster said it’s coming out on June 27 and sent over the box art, which shows that it “requires internet,” needs 60GB of space, is PS4 Pro enhanced, and the online modes require a mandatory update. However, the box art doesn’t say if the Variety Map Pack is included. If this latest report does hold true, expect the Xbox One/PC versions of Modern Warfare Remastered to launch 30 days after PS4. It’s worth pointing out that the official Modern Warfare Remastered FAQ still says, “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is only available through the Legacy, Legacy Pro, and Digital Deluxe editions of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.” If/when Activision confirms the standalone release of MWR, we’ll let you know.
