CALL OF DUTY : ADVANCED WARFARE

CALL OF DUTY : ADVANCED WARFARE is name of the latest game that has been added to the COD series which is developed by Sledgehammer Games , High Moon Studios and Raven Software jointly and published by Activation on November 4, 2014 for windows, os x, xbox one, xbox 360, ps3 and ps4.

CALL OF DUTY : ADVANCED WARFARE is no exception from it's predecessor as it is also an fps game like the previous COD games with conventional gun play mechanics. Although there are some major changes in game mechanics which where absent in the previous games.

  • The first and foremost feature is the introduction of holographic projection of all information on the weapon equipped instead of using the HUD(Heads Up Display) feature.
  • The exoskeleton suit is unique in it's nature. It gives unparalleled strength to the players like cloaking ability, speed boosting, grappling and hooking and jumping boost and lethal combat mechanics which really makes a big difference than any other games.
  • Apart from using traditional weapons , players can now use energy or laser directed weapons which have their own features.

Dragon Age : Inquisition

Dragon Age Inquisition is the third installment in Dragon Age Series which is an action based role playing game developed by BioWare and published by Electronic Arts. The game was released on different regions in between November 18,2014 to November 27, 2014 for windows, xbox 360, xbox one, ps3 and ps4.

The game is not actually an open world game but instead relies on larger locations and vast exploration which consists of 10 vast places and the game can still be continued after the story mission is completed.

Unlike Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age II, the player can now select characters from human to dwarf or elf or Qunari .

The game also differs in terms of combat style from their predecessor.

  • The combat mechanism is mainly focused on the player's tactical view , thought and creative thinking rather than just striking enemies randomly. It focuses on the players position, co-ordination and ability to strike with perfect timing.
  • You can pause the game at any instance during a battle and can think the way you should proceed, how to organize team members around that battlefield and setting traps.

FARCRY 4

Far Cry 4 is an action-adventure first-person shooter video game developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and Windows on November 18.It is the fourth installment in the FARCRY series and sequel to one of my favourite games of 2012, FARCRY 3.

The game is set in Kyrat, a small and beautiful region in The Himalayas currently located in Nepal and follows a native of that region, Ajay Ghale who came there to spread his dead mother's ashes. Dramatically he gets trapped in a civic war in the Kyrat region which is based on the original incidents of monarchy kingdom abolition.

The thought is basically same as FARCRY 3 where we had a villain , a hero and and a open world to explore from north to south , east to west. Some skills are also same and likely were carried dircetly from FARCRY 3, but also with that there are new thgings like new Karma events which unlock gears, discounts and prayer wheels by gaining XP.

  • In this game, for the first time in FARCRY series, you can take control of wild animals to clear your path.
  • Also you can take help from your friends directly when playing a mission.
  • As usual, you can use the map editior to create your own levels.

Enjoy beautiful but perilous Kyrat with Ajay Ghale's epic journey.

DARK SOULS II

Dark Souls II is an hack and slash based action RPG video game published by From Software and Bandai Namco Games on March 11,2014 for Windows, Xbox 360 and PS3.It is the third installment in it's series with more updated graphics and weapons.

Dark Soul is popular for it's challenging and hard gameplay, difficult combat mechanism and perfect timing strikes and this one is not different from that.The game takes place in the world of Drangleic where an undead human known as the "Bearer of the Curse" will try to seek their humanity again having demons in it's path to rip him at every inch.

The gameplay is quite similar to that of Dark Souls.No changes have been made to the control system and remains same as the predecessor.

  • The game is set in a new open world being denser than in Dark Souls.
  • The graphics is very promising with the internally build graphics engine by From Software with new challenges and slight increment of difficulty level.
  • A more advanced AI system is used to take care of the combat mechanism from a wide range.
  • Importance has been given heavily on multiplayer modes where you can call a friend to fight a boss or to clear the odds lie in your path.
