Month: September 2014

The Battlefield Blog has announced the release of the Battlefield 4 Fall Update for DICE’s first-person shooter.  With this major patch for Battlefield 4, player movement has been improved to more closely match that of Battlefield 3, while still maintaining the animation fidelity of Battlefield 4. In addition, the High Frequency Network Update has now been added to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and is set to default. This makes the server update the client on what is happening with greater frequency, resulting in a smoother, more “correct” player experience. By popular demand, the Fall Update also introduces a new preset called “Classic Mode”. Rules on these servers hone back to Battlefield 2/3 and are designed for skilled players looking for more of a challenge and seeking stricter rules.

We’re a little under two months away from the launch of this year’s Call of Duty entry, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. And since it feels like no major game can come out and surprise people anymore, let’s delve into the game’s Achievement/Trophy list, because that’s been revealed today.

Sledgehammer Games‘ first shot with the Call of Duty series’ campaign mode will apparently clock in with a longer playtime. Said Glen Schofield, studio head and co-founder of Sledgehammer, in response to a question on Twitter, this particular campaign is “coming in longer than the last few.”
