As if November wasn’t packed full of big releases already, THQ has officially revealed the next iteration to their WWE simulation titles. The Smackdown vs Raw titling was dropped for the next title, with the new one simply being called WWE ’12, and with the announcement, THQ promises some huge changes to the ever popular wrestling titles (more so than past titles). Bigger, badder and better is the tagline, and it might just be a proper description for the title.
Some of the new features have already been announced, including the mysterious Predator Technology. THQ described it as a system that “delivers a fresh and strategic gameplay experience that looks, feels and plays better than ever before.” Action is supposedly more fluid, animations are more realistic, the AI has been improved, and there is a new submission system called “Breaking Point”. This has a new mini-game that includes a scramble to the ropes for a rope break, something fans have been asking for for a very long time.
Rockstar Games has announced the details of their Rockstar Pass and upcoming DLC content for L.A. Noire. All previously “pre-order only” content is now available. They also announced that two new cases will be coming this summer.
The “Nicholson Electroplating” Arson case will be released on June 21, and the “Reefer Madness” Vice case will be released on July 12. The cases will sell for $3.99 each, or you can get all the DLC by purchasing the “Rockstar Pass” for $9.99.
This somewhat funny video, entitled The Legend of Karl, has been released to give us more information about the newly announced Call of Duty Elite subscription service.
They have also announce a Call of Duty Elite Beta starting sometime this summer. You can sign-up now, at callofduty.com/elite.
