Far Cry 5 Teaser Trailer! Welcome to Hope County. [Updated]

Dark, gritty and set in modern day back country Hope County Montana.  That pretty much sums up’s the entire teaser trailer Ubisoft dropped today for it’s up coming 5th installment in the FarCry franchise (7th if you count Primal and Blood Dragon).

If your familiar with the first season of True Detective you might get a sense of the themes they are playing in to here and while the trailer reveals very little, it’s enough to get fans excited and chomping at the bit for more details.

At the end of the trailer Ubisoft tease the next trailer release date, the 26th (this Friday) so stay tuned for more details.

So without further ado, take a lot for yourself.

Hopefully ringing a church bell with someones face makes it in to the actual game, and if it does it’s probably pretty safe to say that would be first for video games.

Far Cry titles have a solid reputation for their visual fidelity critically acclaimed for their game play since the original  pushed the limits of gamers PCs back in 2004. Sufficed to say we here at the Evatech offices are excited to learn more and eventually get our hands on this! In our opinion, the darker they go the better. It’s 2017 for gods sake, the average age of gamers is up to 31! Lets push the limits of modern video cards and adult themes at the same time, not just blood and gore for the sake of it and some fast pace twitch shooter COD like multiplayer to sell the 14 year old Xbox crowd some DLC and hats.

It might be a while before we get anything in the way of hardware requirements for this particular title but if it’s anything like recent Far Cry releases we would air on the side more GPU power is better and put faith in the developers to actually put all that horsepower to good use come release day. With that in mind, if your looking to order a custom gaming PC for Far Cry 5, check back with us a little later and we’ll be sure to have the requirements listed on our website.

If on the other hand you were looking for a gaming PC today and wanted to make sure it was able to handle Far Cry 5 at high settings when it does get released, shoot us an email or give us a call and we will do our best to guide you through the hardware selection process based on our best guess and big a fat disclaimer up front.

Update : Ubisoft has posted the following promotional artwork ahead of the full reveal due tomorrow.

Update 2 : Full announcement trailer has been released and release date set! February 27th, yes that’s right, NEXT YEAR. That’s a bummer.

Call of Duty: WWII Revealed [Trailer]

For years the Call of Duty franchise has departed from it’s WW2 roots with both modern and futuristic settings to glee of many but the frustration of fans of the original games.

Time to say goodbye to wall running, lasers, double jumping and jet-packing as today Activision released the first reveal trailer for Call of Duty : WWII developed by Sledgehammer Games hinting a strong emphasis on the European theater and a single player campaign that follows the 1st Infantry Division.

This doesn’t mean multi-player has taken a back seat, every one knows a huge number of COD fans never or barely touch single player opting to jump straight in to multiplayer from day one. In an article on Forbes.com, contributor Erik Kain detailed the four core multiplayer games modes as;

Headquarters
Offering a robust social space dedicated to engagement off the frontlines, Headquarters paves the way for all-new avenues of Multiplayer interaction, recognition and awards unlike anything experienced in the franchise to date.
Divisions
A new way to engage in a player’s Multiplayer career — Divisions immerse players in the heroic journey of enlisting in the world’s most historic war. Choose from a variety of Divisions, including Infantry and Armored Divisions.
War Mode
A new Multiplayer experience that immerses players in iconic World War II battles, where Allied and Axis clash in team-driven gameplay in the fight for strategic objectives.
Boots-on-the-Ground Gameplay
Multiplayer marks a return to iconic boots on the ground Call of Duty gameplay that fans know and love, featuring an arsenal of World War II-era weapons, and fast-paced, heart-pumping, intense run-and-gun action.

Also rumored to make a return, Nazi Zombies, a co-op wave survival mode that has been a staple of the Sledgehammer developed COD titles for years now.

Due to be released on November 3rd several more trailers are expected to be released in the meantime detailing more of the game modes and features.

While of course the game will be released on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One, Nintendo hasn’t confirmed or denied a Switch version although it seems unlikely.

Destiny 2 Coming to PC in September

While the very successful and critically claimed  Destiny from Halo’s Bungee studios was a console excursive, Destiny 2 is making it’s it way to PC this September with a simultaneous cross platform launch.

It is currently unclear if the MMO world player base will be separated by platform or if PC and console players will cohabitate the same servers.

Hopefully, as with the first release, Destiny 2 will have Australian (typically in Sydney) based servers for the region.

All we really have to go by at this point is a few leaked posters and an official announcement trailer.

Stay tuned for more details as they develop. We should get a better idea of system requirements and game-play features closer to launch and a beta will be open to those who pre-order.

As PC gamers it’s always good to be a little concerned with the quality of the ‘port’ of a console game as we’ve all seen instances of it going terribly wrong but coming from a studio with a stellar track record like Bungee we are  confident it will be just as good if not better than it’s console counterparts.

Battlefield 1 Official They Shall Not Pass Expansion Trailer

The first of 4 planned expansions to EA’s hugely popular Battlefield 1 is right around the corner.

Available March 14th, “They Shall Not Pass” introduces the French army as they defend their homeland on the western front. Four new maps, a new tank, a new elite class, a new stationary weapon and a new tank gun are also added to the fray to mix up the formula with a focus on close quarters combat.

A little later in the year but without a specific launch date announced just yet, In “The Name of the Tsar” is set to introduce the Russians on the freezing snow covered eastern front with “Turning Tides” and “Apocalypse” expansion packs to follow, each with more maps, classes and weapons.

We know there is mixed emotions about publishers like EA and Ubisoft’s post launch paid content updates and expansions. Many people think they are just trying to nickel and dime players with content that should have been in the original release. However considering the amount of content in each expansion and the original release, when it comes to Battlefield 1 and how many hours I already have and inevitably will continue to sink in to it, I personally feel the value proposition is pretty dam good.

Thinking of buying a new custom gaming PC to play Battlefield 1? Head on over to our custom PC builder where we have the hardware requirements built in to make it even that much easier!
