Black Ops 4 Gets a New Release Trailer!

Black Ops Blackout

Ahead of it’s upcoming October 12th release date, the latest Call of Duty game has dropped a new trailer. At this stage most of the game is a known quantity, especially after the multiplayer and blackout mode beta. All the Black Ops staples are present and accounted for, including plenty of gadgets, a big multiplayer emphasis and a zombie mode.

The Good and the Bad

Hype around the Blackout PUBG clone battle royal mode is very high, especially from the PC gamer crowd with many online stating it’s the only reason they’ll be getting the game. It’s not all roses though, there is some controversy around the server performance, especially in the early game when there is potentially up to 88 players on the map. The server tick rate (the rate at which the server sends and receives updates) starts at just 10Hz before jumping to 20Hz once a few players have died and there is less action to track.

To compare this against a faster paced competitive shooter, CS:GO has a variable tick rate with the pro’s playing between 64 and 128hz. (that means 64-128 server updates per second)

So lets cross our fingers and toes that the launch goes smoothly and there is plenty of servers on day one to keep up with what will undoubtedly be a tremendous amount of players trying to get in to a blackout match.

Battlefield V vs. Black Ops 4 Battle Royale

With the release of Battlefield V and Call of Duty Black Ops 4 inching ever closer, it’s time to take a closer look at this year’s hook. Video games, much like pop music, is a hit driven industry. Wildly popular trends start with a single smash hit then a mad rush to try and improve upon the winning formula.  There was an era in which it felt every second game had some sort of Zombies in it. Shortly before that an era of WW2 shooters and most recently, it’s battle royale. 

With two blockbuster shooters due to land soon, Black Ops 4 and Battlefield V are all aboard the PUGB train. Love it or hate it, with battle royale being a big part of both upcoming games, lets see how they compare.

What is Battle Royale Exactly?

The term was initially made popular by a film of the same name from the year 2000. 9th graders were left on a deserted island with nothing more than a map, food and various weapons. Of course the last one left standing could leave the island, but break the rules and your explosive collar goes BOOM.

Sound familiar? Hunger Games? Running Man? The Condemned? Well it wasn’t a new concept. Films and books had covered it before in some form or fashion but it was this time the name stuck.

Strip out the food and explosive collars, replace 9th graders with a blend of bland random characters and what do you get? Well, the biggest game of the last year, Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds (aka PUBG).

So in a nut-shell, Battle Royale in a game is just some form of last man standing survival. Typically with some form of ever shrinking map to keep up the intensity.

Blackout Vs Firestorm

Blackout is what the Call of Duty team are calling their PUBG copy while Battlefield is calling theirs Firestorm. While the two share a lot with their formula, there’s also a lot to split them. Lets take a look at some of the key differences;

The Setting

Blackout is set in a near future Black Ops universe with (yep, you guessed it!) AI controlled zombies. On the other hand Firestorm is of course set during WW2. The name comes from the ring of fire slowly creeping in from the edges of the map.

Player Count

Firestorm is currently set to feature 16 teams of 4 players each to reach a total of up to 64 players. Blackout is launching at 80 and developers haven’t ruled out adjusting that number up or down.

The Release Date

Blackout is set to hit October 12th with a beta going live on the 14th of September. Meanwhile Firestorm’s beta kicked off today and runs through to the 11th with the full game set for November 20th.

The Hardware Requirements

At this stage we only know the BETA hardware requirements and they are of course subject to change before release. 

Battlefield V Recommended Requirements

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 10
  • Processor : Intel Core i7 4790 / i5 8500 or Better
  • Memory: 16GB RAM
  • Graphics card : Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 3GB or better
  • Available Disk Space : 50GB

Call of Duty Black Ops 4 Recommended Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64 Bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7 4770k / i5 8500 or Better
  • RAM: 12GB RAM
  • HDD: 25GB HD space
  • Video:  GTX 1060 6GB or better

Keep in mind these ‘Recommended‘ settings are typically to allow for medium graphics presets at 1080p, don’t expect set the game to ultra and rock it at 4K if you only meet the requirements above.

While we don’t have any proper benchmark results of the final game yet, we would suspect at max graphics presets you will need a pretty beefy GPU to keep up. Not to mention Battlefield’s ray tracing implementation exclusive to the new range of RTX GPUs due at the of the month.

Is your gaming PC ready?

In the meantime, if you’re thinking your old gaming rig might need an upgrade to get the most of out either of these gorgeous games, you know what to do. Head on over to our custom gaming PC store page and configure your next dream gaming PC today. Build, tested & delivered to your door so your ready to join the fight on release day. 

Of course as always, you know for a fact that the PC version of the game will be the definitive. With the best graphics and mouse / keyboard controls the old consoles will be a far cry from the PC versions glory. There are plenty more details yet to be released so stayed tuned for updates if you’re at all interested in either of these two games.

48 Minutes of Cyberpunk 2077 PC Gameplay [NSFW]

It’s quickly becoming one of the most anticipated PC games on the horizon. Cyberpunk 2077 is CD Projekt RED’s ‘Blade Runner’ style sci-fi RPG taking the internet by storm. The Polish developers behind the Witcher have shifted gears to sci-fi and it looks amazing. Think Dues Ex in a gorgeous new engine and on the scale of the Witcher 3.

Announced back in 2013, the game is finally edging closer to a firm release date. It’s unlikely to be this year but with a bit of luck we’ll get our hands on it in the first half of 2019. In a recent interview the team behind the game proudly announced the it was playable from start to finish and they are just working on the final assets, testing and optimization.

Just a couple of days ago, the official YouTube channel for the game uploaded a whooping 48 minutes of game play. Showing of a lot of the core mechanics and giving you an idea of the overall look and feel of the final product this video does not disappoint, even this early before release.

Just a quick warning before clicking play! This is definitely an adult themed game from start to finish, and we don’t mean just the violence. View discretion is advised.

Cyberpunk 2077 Game Play Reveal.

In just a matter of 48 hours this VERY long game play video has racked up almost 7 million views. That’s amazing, doubly so when you check the re-actions online. Even the notoriously vile ‘YouTube comments’ are extremely positive.

Battlefield V is right around the corner and everyone is talking about this single player RPG without a release date. We’re also happy to report the game’s lead development platform is the PC #pcmasterrate. So of course as usual the PC edition will be the definitive version of the game!

Do you think your gaming rig is up to the challenge of running Cyberpunk 2077? We will have to wait until closer to launch before we see the official hardware requirements. However judging from the video above and previous versions of the game engine (Witcher 3) we can take a guess. It’s fair to say if you want to crank up the graphics settings, this will be a game to truly put your gaming PC to the test.

So if you’re gaming PC is a little behind the times but you don’t want to miss out of Cyberpunk 2077 in all it’s glory, maybe it’s time to start thinking about a upgrade. Don’t worry, you have plenty of time. Just keep an eye out for the release announcement and head on over to our custom gaming PC builder.

Zombie Survival Royale! – Bad Blood

Battle Royale games have been all the rage since PUBG burst on to the scene and took the PC gamer world by storm. Yes there as a lot of similar open world survival games but the addition of an ever shrinking map and no respawns really set it apart. 

Now there is a ton of copy cat’s, most notably Fortnite, the up coming Call of Duty Black Ops game and even possibility a Battlefield V game mode. Any why not right? It’s hugely popular, undeniably fun and every game is going to deviate slightly to try and deliver a slightly new experience. 

Well flying under the radar of big up coming game releases, the developers of Dying Light have been working on a new free to play addition to the genre coming out in just under a month from today! The best part is, it’s not your typical Battle Royal clone.

So what is it exactly?

At the start of the round you get dropped off by a helicopter to random point on the map and that’s almost where the similarities end.

Instead of an ever shrinking playable area and only other players on the prowl, bad blood pits you against hordes or Zombies as well and makes you  scavenge the map to collect samples from hives. For every sample they collect they level up and get bonus attributes like health, speed and damage.

Once any player reaches the top level, they can call in an escape chopper. Of course in doing so you alert every player still alive to the chopper’s landing position and the round culminates in a mad dash to the chopper to escape where the last player left standing in the pickup zone after it arrives wins.

Sounds like fun right? But wait, there’s more. The game is running in the same gorgeous game engine as the previous Dying light games with a huge array of different Zombie types and weapons. Just as with the previous games in the series, there is a big focus on melee weapons and a very well polished fluid parkour system allowing the player to traverse the map quickly and efficiently ‘mirror’s edge’ style.

Weapons include grenades, molotovs, bow and arrows plus a host of blunt and bladed melee weapons, all with different attack speeds and damage ratings.

Hitman 2 Trailer Shows off Scale

With a PC release date of November 13th creeping up fast, the team at IO Interactive have released a new trailer for latest Hitman game titled ‘How to Hitman, part 1’. With a name like that, we can expect a few more.

Boasting a bigger better larger scale version of the previous Hitman game, fans of the genre will very familiar with the word shown off in the latest video, with the level on display looking like a Formula 1 race track where a driver is your target.

Scale a drainage pipe to slap a guy in the face with a fish after kicking his buddy off the roof? Yep, Agent 47 is back.

If you missed the previous Hitman game from 2016 you can now play 2 full story mode missions for FREE on Steam before you decide if you want to buy the whole thing or just cherry pick episode packs for $6.99 each to get your fill while you wait for Hitman 2.

While we expect the game to be running in an upgraded and tweaked version of the original engine, the increase in scale suggests an increase in the hardware requirements you’ll need to keep a smooth frame rate up in large crowds.

Battlefield V Gamescom Trailer

Gamescom kicks off next week in Cologne, Germany and a few games have already dropped new trailers just ahead of the show. Alongside Hitman 2, Tropico 6, a new Rainbow Six Siege operator trailer and a handful of indie games came a new Battlefield V trailer titled ‘Devastation of Rotterdam.

We are expecting a lot more of the feature and game-play specifics to be confirmed during the show but the trailer shows off a few snippets in-game footage to give  you an idea of the look and feel of the game as well as plenty of montages showing off the planes, tanks, APCs, destruction and scale of the maps. 

Right at the very end, a ring of fire is shown engulfing a a village with a tank and soldiers all running towards the middle in what a lot of people are speculating is a teasers for a PUBG’esc battle royal mode to compete with the already official ‘Blackout’ mode of the same vein. Take a look for yourself.

Nvidia tease RTX 2080 ahead of Cologne 2018 Gamescom

Being in the custom gaming PC business nothing is more exciting than a big next-gen graphics card launch!

Rumors and speculation have been circling for many months regarding the new Nvidia GPUs. When would they be announced? What would they be called? How much will they cost? How powerful will they be? Well today an Nvidia teaser trailer was posted on YouTube and it seems to have answered a few, but not all of these pressing questions.

What we know.

What is it called? While it’s probably the least important thing, the name has been hotly debated online with early leaks suggesting the card would be called the GTX1180 which would be a logical step forward after the GTX980 and GTX1080 predecessors. However today the new teaser has all but confirmed the card will be dropping the GTX prefix for RTX and jumping all the way from 1000 to 2000 making the imminently launching new GPU the RTX2080.

Why RTX? Well it seems that these new series of cards will be focusing heavily on ray tracing power, a rendering technique that generates an image by tracing the path of lights and shadows for a more realistic real time image.

When will it be announced? Gamescom kicks off on the 21st of the month with Nvidia scheduled to have a big presence at the show. Until today everyone thought we would be waiting until the show began before we got any details but the prospect of launching a product called the 2080 on the 20th of the 8th seemed like too much to miss. We are not exactly sure how it will be announced but the teaser trailer clearly states it will be this coming Monday, the 20th of August 2018!

What the rumors say,

Take these details with a grain of salt as nothing can be confirmed until we hear from the horses mouth, but various AIB partners have been letting slip the fact that custom cooled (aka non-founders edition cards) will available as early as ‘sometime in September’ and would be running 8GB of GDDR6. 

What we don’t know for sure,

Well of course the most important thing any gamer wants to know is just how much of an improvement in performance over the previous generation these RTX cards will be. Followed quickly by wanting to know the price so they can grab a calculator and try to see if they can justify the purchase! Last but certainly not least, when will it be available for purchase? It seems to much to hope for that it would be on store shelves the moment it was announced but the sooner the better.

Jucy rumors of a RTX Titan are floating around that could launch along side the RTX 2080 for those of you with big budgets and a need for rediculous amounts of GPU power but nothing has been confirmed just yet and if it does happen, we’ve heard some speculation that it would come in at as much as $3000 USD, that’s about $4,500 AUD after GST.

Stay tuned for more details as they develop. It’s not uncommon for leaks to start springing up everywhere this close to a launch as more and more industry partners get their hands on the details to prep for launch. 

The Trailer,

What to wait for,

Independent third party RTX2080 gaming benchmarks! Nvidia’s official numbers have always been exaggerated and derived from cherry picked data they’ve specifically optimized for. Be wary of bold claims like 50% better than last-gen because it almost certainly be with a big fat asterix and tiny disclaimer hidden somewhere on the page. We suggest hold off until you get some real apple to apple comparison points to can stack up against the price. We will definitely be doing A LOT of gaming testing as soon as we get our hands on some and are very eager to report our findings.

What about the RTX2070 / RTX2060 and RTX2080 TI? Well these pretty much inevitable but as to when they will be released… that’s anyone’s guess. The TI edition or what ever they end up calling it 

Where to buy an RTX2080 Powered Gaming PC?

Rest assured Evatech we’ll have these available for purchase as soon as they are made available. If at all possible we will have a pre-order in place just like we did at the launch of the GTX 1080 and GTX 1080 TI so keep a close eye on our website to get your hands on the first wave of stock before it sells out.

If you are reading this more than a couple of days after this has been posted, head on over to our store page at www.evatech.com.au and they just might be available to order in our custom gaming PCs!

For those of you interested in purchasing a gaming PC today, well prices on current generation cards have come down significantly in the last few months as Nvidia clears out stock for their new generation of flagship cards so unless we are in a for an unprecedented leap in performance, you might pick yourself up a relative bargain if you get in quick. Expect the next-gen, what ever they end up being, to launch at a premium as they always do.

Doom Eternal Gameplay Trailer Released.

Quakecon 2018 is underway in Texas and with it came some big announcements from the teams at Bethesda and ID Tech. As well as an extensive Rage 2 game-play trailer the keynote included an announcement that Quake Champions will be permanently free to play and of course a long awaited in-game demo of the long awaited followup to the 2016 Doom remake, Doom Eternal.

From the rather extensive trailer it looks as though the development team are sticking to the fast paced run & gun action with plenty of gore and heavy metal formula of it’s predecessor, with a few refinements and additions. This means if you were a fan of the 2016 game you’ll be in for a treat but you were hoping for a return the slower paced horror / jump scare Doom games like the 2004 release, you might be disappointed. Here is a run down of what we’ve learned so far;

  • No release date just yet but the game looks pretty far along so hopefully it makes it in time for Christmas this year.
  • Plenty of new weapons including a shotgun mounted grappling hook to latch on to and propel yourself towards enemies across the environment.
  • Multiplayer will be a bigger focus than the original and completely developed in house by the primary team.
  • The game will simultaneous release on all three major consoles (including switch) along side the lead platform PC edition where the Doom legacy started, will offer the highest fidelity graphics and of course where the obviously superior control method of mouse & keyboard is the only way to REALY play the game.

So without further a’do here’s the trailer. 

Don’t forget the season of big game releases is fast approaching! Is your gaming rig ready to take on Doom Eternal, Rage 2, Battlefield V, Call of Duty Black Ops 4, Fallout 76, Just Cause 4, Darksides III, Total War Thrones of Britannia, Hitman 2, MechWarrior 5, Escape from Tarkov and much much more? If your answer is no, maybe you should checkout our custom gaming PC range today and make you get your order in quick so we can build, test and deliver to your door before it’s too late!

Customization The Best Gaming PC for August 2018.

We often get asked for advise from customers who have a rough idea of what they are trying to achieve but are just not quiet sure what the best configuration for their particular needs is.

For the purposes of this article we are going to make a few basic assumptions.

  • Primary Use : Gaming
    By far the most common and often the trickiest to determine with a lot of conflicting information floating around online.
  • Goal  : Best value for money
    Isn’t this always the goal? Well not always, a lot of our customers do like to splurge on aesthetics with bigger coolers, RGB LEDs and high end fancy chassis. Our recommendation below won’t take aesthetics in to account as it’s too subjective. That being said, you  can always use this guide as a jumping off point for the performance aspect and make a few tweaks or additions to get it exactly how you like it!
  • Availability : Right Now!
    In the world of PC hardware, something new is always around the corner and you can always find someone to tell you ‘just wait another month or two and you can get the X with the Y and it will be so much better’. Well sometimes this true but quiet often it’s a longer than expect wait for a smaller than expected jump in performance. Don’t forget to factor in the value of being able to game on your new PC for that extra time and remember, even if you wait a few weeks or months for the next big thing, it’s only a few months away from the next, next big thing and  you can’t wait for ever!

It also might be worth checking out our online custom PC builder page linked here before you jump in to the rest of the article so you can get a better idea of what we are discussing.

Getting Started; Addressing the lies.

Don’t fall for the CPU and RAM trap.

There are three main contributors to a PCs performance, the CPU, RAM and GPU (aka video or graphics card) but contrary marketing hype it’s not all about the CPU or RAM.

For almost all games, especially triple-A big budget 3D titles, the video card is the key contributing factor to in-game performance. The heart and soul of any gaming PC as long it’s not bottle-necked, responsible for rendering as many frames per second to the screen as it possibly can. The more frames per second, the better the performance and smoother than experience.

It really is that simple but quiet often the ‘gaming PCs’ you see in big box stores sitting on the shelf are configured purely for marketing purposes, designed to be sold to people who know nothing about PC hardware by shady salesmen who know equally as little or are happy to lie to your face to get their sales.

This is why you’ll commonly see an i7 CPU and a huge amount of RAM paired with some entry level or mid range video card completely unnecessarily! Why? Sadly it’s because your average mum or dad wandering in to a JB HIFI to buy their 13 year old a ‘gaming PC’ has no idea how important the video card is and how to even compare them against one another. What they do end up comparing is the CPU and RAM, a poor indicator for gaming performance but an easy mistake for the un-savvy customer to make. It seems intuitive right? i7 is better than i5 or i3 and more GB’s means faster!  Well this is completely wrong.

If you take anything away from this article to save you money on your next gaming PC purchase it should be these simple facts;

  • You should always start with the GPU and work backwards.
    Figure out what sort of performance you are looking for, choose the right video card for your needs and work backwards to make sure you choose the appropriate supporting hardware.
  • More cores doesn’t mean better gaming performance.
    Most modern game engines will only utilize 4 cores and barely touch the others. In fact a lot will only really fully utilize 2! This might change a bit in the future but not any time soon and it’s been this way for a very long time. As a result in the vast majority of games an i5 will match in i7 in performance and in some cases even the i3’s!
  • More RAM that you actually don’t need doesn’t actually do anything.
    These days, RAM comes capacities come in increments of 8GB and in all but the most demanding games, 8GB will get you by just fine. Jump up to 16GB and your totally covered, anything higher just isn’t going to make a difference for gaming.

Choosing the best video card for gaming PC and pairing it correctly.

For as critical as this step is to any gaming PC, it’s not actually that difficult. Performance and price almost scales uniformly and it’s generally a case of you get what you pay for. The only real trick is knowing what you can expect for money.

Top of the Line.
Best Gaming PC GPU for 144Hz, 4K & VR

If you really want the best of the best, as of today the GTX 1080 TI is the only way to go.  The only card considered a higher tier than this is the much more expensive Titan X which is more optimized towards professional applications over gaming and as a result even with it’s extra pipelines and on-board memory they perform almost identically in terms of gaming.

To pair with this, a high end i5 like the 8600 or 8600K with 16GB of RAM would be our recommendation but if you wan’t that extra piece of mind and it’s within your budget, an i7 would be worth concidering. Especially if you have some secondary use cases that would leverage the extra cores or if your a big fan of games like the Total War series that lean much more heavily on the CPU.

Great.
The Best Gaming PC GPU for 1080P / Max Settings

A couple of steps down from the top is the GTX1070 or GTX1070 TI. Both great cards in their price range with only very little difference in performance and price between them and each capable of running all modern games at 1080P extremely well, even at high / ultra graphics settings very well.

For CPU and RAM, a mid to entry level i5 with 16GB of RAM would be all you need, no need to worry about an i7 at this tier.

Mid-Range
The Best Gaming PC GPU for General 1080P Gaming

A lot of games, especially popular e-sports titles don’t really require much in the way of gaming PC horsepower as they try to optimize for high frame rates over rich, high detailed 3D environments. A great example of which are titles like Overwatch and Fortnite. If these are the types of games you love and you don’t really worry about needing to crank all the graphics settings up to their highest you can easily get away with a GTX 1060 3GB.

The 3GB model is a slightly cut down version of the 6GB but still plenty to get very smooth frame rates across a very wide range of popular titles and if you dial back the settings a bit you can still find a very enjoyable balance in the more demanding games too.

A high end i3 like the 8300 would be great pairing with this card and you could easily get away with only 8GB or RAM.

Entry Level
The Best Gaming PC GPU on a Tight Budget

Happy with medium pre-sets and really only play a handful of less demanding classics like Counter Strike, Team Fortress, Dota etc? The GTX 1050 packs enough of a punch to keep you very happy, but don’t expect 4K or VR levels of power! It’s great value for a lot of games but you might struggle in a more demanding title a little further down the road.

As for CPU and RAM with this one, it doesn’t really matter. Even the entry level Pentium would get the job done and anything over 8GB of RAM would be waste of money.

Should you go with SLI? (Dual Video Cards)

For those of you not familiar with the term, that means running two of the same model GPU in the same machine, setup and linked together so they work together to power your PC while you’re gaming. The upside is a lot more gaming performance assuming the game you are playing is well optimized to support it. The down side is of course the extra cost, not only in the second GPU, but the motherboard and power supply that is required to support it.

Remember, even the most optimized games don’t scale 1:1 so it’s always better to have a single higher performing card over two less powerful ones.

So the answer is yes, but only if it’s a high end card, it’s within your budget, and your happy to pay the premium involved with to get the extra performance.

Fallout 76 BETA is the full game!

The Fallout 76 B.E.T.A FAQ has gone live on the Bethesda website and there’s a few surprises! Dubbed by the development team as the ‘Break-it Early Test Application’ the Fallout 76 BETA will consist of the entire game unlike many online game BETA’s that lock players down to a very limited early segment of the game. Even more surprising is that progression will be brought forward in to the final release! This means if you just wait until the game is released in November without playing the BETA you’ll already be behind.

How do I get in on the Fallout 76 BETA?

Well as usual it requires a pre-order of the final game to get access. Pre-orders can be made at falllout.bethesda.net or at participating retailers. Not all stores will be offering BETA access so check carefully before ordering.

Note that this time around the game will not be available for purchase on Steam with all digital and physical copies requiring registration on Bethesda’s own ‘Launcher’

When does the Fallout 76 BETA start?

There is no set official date but the official FAQ says ‘You’ll be able to play our B.E.T.A. starting in October’. We assume it will be roughly a 30 day lead up to the official November 14th Launch

Disclaimer!

This will still be a BETA for a purely online only game. Expect server issues and bugs! Additionally, while it’s the developers intentions to save player’s BETA progress for the full launch, remember things don’t always go as planned so be prepared for a slim chance of starting from the beginning come November 14th.

TLDR Summary;

  • Fallout 76 BETA is the full game
  • Progress (should) carry forward in to launch
  • BETA starts sometime October
  • Pre-order required for BETA access
  • No Steam version of the game
  • Full game launch set for November 14th
