Valve to Release DLC for Left for Dead 2
Posted by GLADIATOR-nVts-
Announcementslees921-nVts- writes "

Valve have announced that they will be releasing a set of maps for Left 4 Dead 2 once Portal 2 is done and dusted. The three remaining maps from the first Left 4 Dead will be ported over to Left 4 Dead 2 as part of the pack, and there will be a fourth map from modder Matthew Lourdelet, who made the excellent 2 Evil Eyes campaign. Instead of quietly finishing work on the new map, Valve are throwing its development open to the community, asking for ideas and feedback to help them develop the campaign.

Valve made the announcement on the left for dead 2 blog, where they say that they’ve been playing Lourdelet’s new campaign, Cold Stream. “We love it so far but it isn’t done. We were tempted to have him quietly finish it with our help and release it as part of an upcoming DLC.”

“Tempted… but we decided against that. Instead, we think we have a better idea. We want you the community to be part of the process of taking his unfinished campaign and releasing it as DLC on the Xbox 360, PC and Mac.”

Valve’s latest experiment is looking to crowdsource development on the map, taking feedback on each aspect of the campaign as it’s developed. Valve also say they’ll be giving the community feedback on the changes they decide to make, which should provide an interesting insight into the way they develop their levels “we will also share some data we collect on player experience and show how we put that data to use.

Activision 'reported' to UK trade regulator over COD: Black Ops
Posted by GLADIATOR-nVts-
NewsIndependent consumer group 'Game's Voice' in the UK issued a one month deadline to publisher Activision to respond to their open letter, Dec. 22nd.

No response came as GV asked what Acti were doing to 'recompense' PC and PS3 Call of Duty: Black Ops players. Now the Office of Fair Trading is involved?

The consumer group say they have been "inundated with emails from people concerning the bugs and errors in the PC and PS3 versions of Call of Duty Black Ops," and so they posted an open letter for Activision to respond.

"The complaints range from freezing when a new map is being loaded, locking up of PS3's and PC's while running the game, inability to log into multiplayer matches and connection drops mid game," reads the letter from Gamer's Voice.

"It is quite obvious that you have focussed a majority of your QA on the Xbox 360 version with the assumption that the majority of people who play the game will do so on that system. Despite this, you have chosen to release it on multiple formats to maximise the revenue from sales of the game."

"It is now that your valuable customer base is bearing the brunt of this short sighted act of crass profiteering on your part, for that is exactly what this is," they added.

"We therefore request that you offer by way of explanation to us why this has occurred and, more importantly, what are you going to do to recompense your customer base? You have one calendar month to respond to this letter. If no response is received or your retort fails to treat this issue with the gravity it deserves, we will be forced to take matters further."

Activision gave no reply to the open letter and so now Gamer's Voice have passed along the grievances to the Office of Fair Trading, the governing body that "enforces consumer protection law and competition law" in the UK among other things.

"As a result of their inaction we will test the might of government agencies against Activision. We can only hope this brings about some litigious action. These agencies do exist to protect our rights as consumers, let us see if they can fulfil their remit on this pressing issue," said Head of Industry Relations at Gamer's Voice, Chris O’Regan.

“GV wish to set an example with Activision to ensure games are not released in an unfinished state. If litigation is initiated, then a precedent would be set. In other words, publishers will have to reconsider releasing unfinished code in the future, in the UK at least.”

"For the government agencies, months if they do start a formal investigation. For Activision, they may re-act a might quicker, although it will likely be a rebuttal and nothing more.” Have you been having trouble with Call of Duty: Black Ops, videogamer?

After being inundated with emails from people concerning the bugs and errors in the PC and PS3 versions of Call of Duty Black Ops, Gamers' Voice has written an open letter to Activision UK to ask how these errors have come about and what they are going to do by way of recompence to the people who bought what turns out to be an unplayable game. Read on to see the contents of the letter:

Dear Sir/Madam,

Gamers' Voice is a consumer advice and lobbyist group that represents the video game consumer in the UK. As part of our remit we are tasked to ensure that the purchasers of video games are given a fair hearing when they have a particular issue with a game they have bought. It is for this reason we are contacting you now as we have been inundated with complaints from people who have bought copies of Call of Duty: Black Ops. They all concern the Playstation 3 console and PC versions of the game.

The complaints range from freezing when a new map is being loaded, locking up of PS3's and PC's while running the game, inability to log into multiplayer matches and connection drops mid game. None of this apparently applies to the Xbox 360 version, which is clearly the lead platform for the title.

It is quite obvious that you have focussed a majority of your QA on the Xbox 360 version with the assumption that the majority of people who play the game will do so on that system. Despite this, you have chosen to release it on multiple formats to maximise the revenue from sales of the game. By doing so evidence suggests that little attention was paid to the platforms with a smaller install base and hence a reduction in QA being employed for these versions.

It is now that your valuable customer base is bearing the brunt of this short sighted act of crass profiteering on your part, for that is exactly what this is. You have pushed out a game that is broken to the point of it not fulfilling its function as a piece of entertainment. Reading from the back of the game's box, we quote:

"Epic single-player, acclaimed multiplayer and 4 player co-op Zombies"

What this tag line fails to have is the caveat that this only applies if you are playing the Xbox 360 version. None of this will be experienced by the purchaser of the PS3 and PC ports for they do not actually function as intended.

We therefore request that you offer by way of explanation to us why this has occurred and, more importantly, what are you going to do to recompense your customer base? You have one calendar month to respond to this letter. If no response is received or your retort fails to treat this issue with the gravity it deserves, we will be forced to take matters further.

"We will await Activision UK's reply and report here on any further developments regarding this very serious issue"

Battlefield 3 Unveil Date
Posted by GLADIATOR-nVts-
Newslees921-nVts- writes "

 

We knew Battlefield 3 was coming soon with all these Game Developer Conference lectures about the game, but now we have some solid information. Battlefield 3 will officially announced March 1, 2011.

Electronic Arts will unveil Battlefield 3 this March.

The publisher confirmed to the media it will host an unveil event for the game on Mar. 1, 2011, taking place during the week of the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. Additionally, EA says it will also have new game announcements as well as hands-on time with many upcoming titles, including: Shadows of the Damned, Alice Madness Returns, Kingdom of Amalur: Reckoning, and Crysis 2.

Those who purchased the Limited Edition of Medal of Honor this past fall received an invitation to the Battlefield 3 beta. Details about the beta's release date have not been announced.

Battlefield 3 is expected to ship in this year.

According to a user on NeoGAF (who is part of the Need for Speed Public Relations team), EA periodically send out internal confidential demo reels showing what is happening in different branches of the company. The latest one, sent out in late December, shows Battlefield 3 as well as Dragon Age 2, NFS, Star Wars: The Old Republic, Bulletstorm and other upcoming EA games. He talks a bit about what he saw, but he is of course under NDA.

Here is what he had to say about BF3

"They don't show anything that people couldn't already infer. Only marketing people working on the franchise/game and actual devs get access to that stuff."
"Anything I saw about BF3 or ME3 could be inferred by fans of the franchise. I saw that BF3 had guns, explosions, vehicles, large maps and was played from the first person perspective. I got a few flashes of the HUD, but have no idea about how they're evolving the game's play mechanics".

Yeah thanks for the usefull info there mate.. Not!

Well lets just sit and wait with baited breath to see this in march i guess..
