EA posted a short teaser trailer for Need For Speed Rivals, a Need For Speed designed for next-gen consoles. Powered by Frostbite 3 (the Battlefield 4 engine) it has all the usual trappings you would associate with Most Wanted. Escape the cops, street racing but customisation has been roped in. Seems like a blend between Most Wanted and Underground. You can play as either a racer or a cop, adding a nice twist to the game.
EA has done this before with FIFA 11. With next-gen consoles on the horizon, they've decided that the PC version will use the FIFA 13 engine instead of the new IGNITE engine. Rob Hodson, EA Sports Community manager confirms this. He clarifies that much of the features however will be added, just not using the new engine. Go figure. Speculation is that EA are not bringing the new engine due to the diverse system specs on the PC. EA won't comment on the reason at the moment.
Infinity Ward presented the debut gameplay trailer for Call of Duty: Ghost at the XBOX One Microsoft press conference. It's what you expect... big explosion, epic scenes, and ermm... doggies. The trailer showcases some advanced particles and lightings. I don't know abot you, but it looks quite like any Call of Duty. Story line places you in a US military special force called Ghost and a world in disarray. An invasion force takes over America... and well... you know how the story goes.
