3 New Exciting Demos Released on Xbox 360

Three new demos have recently become available in the Xbox Marketplace that many gamers might be interested. The demos are for Diablo III, FIFA 14, and Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 and all are very popular titles in the industry. The Diablo III demo includes a variety of features including all five Hero Classes, local and online gameplay, and allows players to reach the Skeleton King with demo saves capable of carrying over to the full version of the game. The full version of Diablo III was launched a little bit earlier this month. The FIFA 14 demo introduces the players to the new shooting style called Pure Shot which uses upgraded ball physics allowing the game to feel much more realistic. FIFA 14 is expected to launch for the current generation of consoles on September 24 and the next generation consoles in November. The final demo for Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 includes an entirely rebuilt physics system, and updates to team and¬† player AI capabilities. This demo also features advanced graphics and an improved “atmosphere.” The Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 full game is scheduled to launch for the current consoles on September 24.


Hinterland a New Game Developing Studio

New Game Developing Studio

It was recently announced that a new game developing studio has been formed by numerous former employees from several major studios in the gaming industry. The new studio is named Hinterland and their employees come from other high profile studios including BioWare, Riot Games, Ubisoft Montreal, Sony Santa Monica, and id Software. These studios have all been responsible for working on a variety of wildly popular games that have been released in the past few years alone such as the Assassin’s Creed series and many others. The founder of this new studio is Raphael van Lierop who worked on projects including Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine and Far Cry 3. The first game that Hinterland will be developing will be released for PC and is titled The Long Dark which will be a survival simulation game set in an open world with an apocalyptic history. There is no current release date scheduled for The Long Dark but I know that I am excited to see the work that comes from this new studio in coming years.
