Watch Dogs Bug Sees Player Lose all Progression, Items and Skills

Dogs

It seems that Watch Dogs didn’t get the perfect release that every gamer had hoped for. Instead, on the official forums, a very scary Watch Dogs bug has been announced, a game breaking bug that has players lose all their in-game progression, weapons, outfits and unlocked skills. Really scary.

Posting on the forums on the Xbox One section of the game, one user wrote:

“Got discovered and killed while tailing someone, respawned in free roam, all my weapons were gone, outfit was default, and all my skills (crafting and such that I had unlocked to date) were still unlocked in the skill tree, but I could not use them.”

The player was already level 25 when this happened, so you can imagine that it’s pretty bad. Fortunately, Ubisoft were quick to ask for more details and hopefully they will have a fix for this soon, especially because cleaning the game’s cache or loading a save file doesn’t fix it.

So far, this Watch Dogs bug that sees you lose all your progression has only been reported on PCs and Xbox One, so apparently the other platforms are safe. Or players didn’t run into something similar yet.

What about you? Did you encounter this problem? And if you did, most important – were you able to fix it somehow?

Dogs

With the launch of Watch Dogs, both nVidia and AMD wanted to make sure that their users will get the best possible experience, so both companies have launched updated drivers released specifically for this game. Known as the “Watch Dogs drivers,” the new releases are already available for download and we are here to share with you the links.

So, without further ado, check out the links below to download, from the official websites, the latest drivers from AMD and nVidia:

nVidia took things extremely seriously and they have already posted a huge tweaks article here featuring a ton of tips for nVidia users to get the most out of Watch Dogs. They also have their new drivers increase the FPS up to 75%, so it certainly is a set of drivers that you want to download and install ASAP.

AMD reports performance increases of the game of up to 28%, but they don’t have (at the moment of writing, at least), such an in-depth article as their competitors with tips and tweaks for Watch Dogs. Still, it’s a must download driver, so make sure you get it right away!

Check Out Some Watch Dogs 4K Resolution Screenshots – Really Impressive

Dogs

Watch Dogs is one day away from its worldwide release, but people who had early access to the game are starting to leak information and screenshots, to the delight of the public. NeoGaf forum user Twisted89 posted on imgur a set of screenshots taken at 3840×2160 resolution (4K resolution) showing us a really beautiful game.

Probably not all the future owners of Watch Dogs will be able to run the game at such intense and demanding resolutions, so these screenshots will certainly help them get a feel of how the game really looks like. And, downgraded or not, it does look amazing! Check out the Watch Dogs 4K resolution screenshots below:

What do you think about the game? Did Ubisoft do a great job at creating this open world or you think the 4K resolution screenshots should’ve been a lot better?

Enemy Front System Requirements Revealed

Enemy

A few years ago, all gamers were bored with the World War II because every single game released seemed to take place there. We’ve gone all modern and sci-fi, so CI Games decided to give the war another try now, with the release of Enemy Front – a pretty exciting project since it will run on Crytek’s Cryengine.

The Enemy Front system requirements have been released by the developers and gamers who were worrying (if there were any) that the game might not run on their gig should probably keep calm and stop thinking about upgrades: they’ll probably be able to run the game without problems. But just to be sure, check out the system requirements below!

Enemy Front minimum system requirements

-Intel Dual Core 2.6 GHz or equivalent AMD
-3 GB RAM
-1 GB RAM Graphic card – GeForce 8800GT/Raedon HD 3850
-DirectX 9.0c
-Windows XP/Vista/Win 7/Win 8
-Broadband Internet connection

Enemy Front recommended system requirements

-Intel Core 2 Quad 2 GHz or equivalent AMD
-4 GB RAM
-GeForce GTX 460
-DirectX 9.0c
-Windows XP/Vista/Win 7/Win 8
-Broadband Internet connection

Some pretty decent requirements for a game that will hopefully impress us visually. We’ll get to see for sure on June 10th, when the game launches.

WildStar: ‘Ops Week’ Will Continue Until the Headstart

WildStar

WildStar is almost out and Carbine Studios/NCSOFT have been hosting the last Ops Week, where players can log in one last time in the beta servers before the release date. During this period, the developers “will be preparing for the launch and will be putting the final touches on everything.” This event should last until the headstart, on 31th May, and it doesn’t have any official opening dates, it’s completely random, as Carbine Studios explained:

We aren’t going to pre-announce the windows. As the teams decide that we need something tested, we will announce it on social media, and open up the servers for as long as we need in order to fulfill the testing. It will be completely random. We might be only up for 1 hour, we might be up longer.

This means if players pretend to play WildStar again before the official release dates, they must follow the game’s social networks closely, especially during the business hours for PDT. Ops Week is opened for everyone and it doesn’t involve any rewards or special prizes.

WildStar is an upcoming sci-fi MMORPG launching on PC May 31 (headstart for pre-orders) or June 3, 2014.

The Wolf Among Us Episode 4 Gets First Trailer, Release Date

Wolf

Telltale Games has released the first trailer for episode 4 of The Wolf Among Us, titled “In Sheep’s Clothing”. Along with the trailer, they’ve announced that the Episode will be released on May 27 for PC and Mac, May 28 for PS3 and Xbox 360, and May 29 for iOS.

Has the Wolf met his match? Beaten and bloody, Bigby is confronted by the realization that a society built on secrets is ripe for exploitation. And that the disenfranchised of Fabletown may see his prey not as the cause of their problems, but as their solution. Constantly caught between ‘the rules’ and doing the right thing, Bigby must tread a path fraught with danger in this penultimate episode of The Wolf Among Us.

I have been enamoured by Telltale’s take on The Wolf Among Us, and if A Crooked Mile is any indication of how excellent In Sheep’s Clothing will be, we’re in for a dramatic treat.

Batman: Arkham Knight Gameplay Revealed

Batman

The gameplay reveal for Batman: Arkham Knight has been making it’s rounds on the internet today, and I’ll be darned if it doesn’t look appealing. Rocksteady claims that this trailer is purely in-game graphics, and if this is the case, we’re in for quite the treat.

“Scarecrow returns to Gotham City with a scheme to unite the Rogues Gallery and destroy the Batman once and for all. As the citizens of Gotham flee and criminal gangs take control of the city, Batman evens the odds taking to the streets in the legendary Batmobile to ignite the fight that will decide the future of the city that he is sworn to protect.”

I must admit that despite how gorgeous this game looks, and the obvious improvements (Batmobile anyone?) it offers, I can’t help but feel slightly disappointed that the main villain seems to be Scarecrow.  I am a big Bats fan, but I’ve never been the biggest supporter of Scarecrow. I think there are better villains that could be used, but maybe Rocksteady can convince me otherwise.

Wolfenstein: The New Order Leaked on Torrents, One Week Before Release

Wolfenstein

Those pesky PC users did it again, hurting the industry, right? Well, it’s not the case anymore, as Wolfenstein: The New Order has been indeed leaked on Torrents, but it’s not the PC version that got leaked, it’s the PS3 one, with the Xbox 360 version announced to follow “shortly”.

What might sound strange for many is actually a result of the use of the Steam DRM by Wolfenstein: The New Order, which simply doesn’t allow the game to be unlocked in any region. Since the console versions of the game don’t have it, they are easier to crack and that’s exactly what happened: Wolfenstein: The New Order is now available on torrent sites, one week before the anticipated release date and certainly ready to hurt the sales of the game when it hits store shelves.

Wolfenstein: The New Order is expected to be officially launched on May 20 (*apparently, the game is available for illegal download for a couple of days already) and if you are considering getting the torrent version of the game, you should know that you need a jailbroken console. So it’s best to wait in line and get the original, official release and help the game publishers instead of going the wrong route. Just a suggestion.

Now all that’s left to see is probably a flood of “let’s play” videos on YouTube and wait for the official word from the game’s publishers to find out if the game’s sales are lower than expected because of this leak.

Game of Thrones A Telltale Game Series Release Date Pushed Back a Little

Game of Thrones

Originally announced for release during the Fall 2014, the Game of Thrones game created by Telltale Games got pushed back just a little bit, and now its release date (for the first episode, at least) is mid-December 2014. We’re not sure if it was the regular “spit and polish” that the game requires or just the fact that everybody will be crazy to get the game for the holidays, but we’re certainly upset about this delay. I’m aching to play a Game of Thrones title, really!

Even though actual details are extremely scarce on this release, we do now that the Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series will take place during the time of the TV series (or book series), even though you might not be directly involved with the throne wars and instead exploring other areas of Westeros. However, it’s a huge world and I am sure there will be some characters from the series that will make at least cameo appearances in our games. Tyrion, please?

Dan Connors, co-founder and CEO of Telltale Games said about the upcoming Game of Thrones game: “We’re just really getting into it right now and thinking about the right characters, and who has the most at stake, and who has the most to do, and who has the biggest impact on the world. ‘Cause, you know, we’re so much about consequence, and Game of Thrones is so much about big consequence.”

Sounds really exciting and even though we have nothing yet to feast our eyes with, I am sure that every fan of the show is eagerly awaiting to play the game. And they’ll be able to do so sometime in mid-December. Such a long wait!
