WWE2K16 logo

 

Following the termination of his Contract with WWE this week reportedly over an audio recording of Hogan (Terry Bollea) making racist remarks, 2K has confirmed via a statement made to Polygon, that Hulk Hogan has been removed from ‘WWE2K16′.

The statement reads:

“We are highly respectful of the way that our partners choose to run their business and manage our partnerships accordingly. We can confirm that Hulk Hogan will not appear in WWE 2K16.”

Last year Hogan was made the Coverstar for WWE2K15, with a special edition featuring his merchandise as well as playable versions available in the game. With WWE removing all mentions of Hogan from their site and merchandise from the WWE Store, it is yet to be confirmed if this content will be removed from platforms as well. 2K may do this if they are to ‘support’ WWE as their partner in this license but will update should it occurred.

EGX News:Play Tom Clancy’s The Division, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate & Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege at EGX

Ubisoft-Logo

 

EGX, the UK’s biggest video games event, today announced that Ubisoft titles Tom Clancy’s The DivisionAssassin’s Creed Syndicate and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege will all be playable at EGX this September 24-27, including a UK first public hands-on for Tom Clancy’s The Division.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

In Tom Clancy’s The Division, a devastating pandemic sweeps through New York City on Black Friday, and one by one, basic services fail. In only days, without food or water, society collapses into chaos. The Division, an autonomous unit of tactical agents, is activated. Leading seemingly ordinary lives among us, these agents are trained to operate independently in order to save society.

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate takes the series to a stunning recreation of Nineteenth Century Victorian London at the height of the Industrial Revolution, complete with underground criminal elements and the ongoing struggle between the common poor and rich elite. New Assassins, twins Jacob and Evie Frye, make it their mission to jump in and redress the balance.

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege’s take on the tactical shooter has been wowing gamers worldwide since its announcement at E3 2014. This hyper-intense first-person shooter features explosive close quarters combat, high lethality, tactics and team play; all within a highly detailed, fully-destructible environment.

Louise Marchant, Group Marketing Manager at Ubisoft said, “We’re really pleased to be bringing three of our biggest games to EGX in the form of Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, Rainbow Six Siege and The Division. The show continues to go from strength-to-strength and we’re looking forward to seeing UK gamers get up-close and personal with the first-ever London-based Assassin’s Creed, the long-awaited return of Rainbow Six and the UK premiere of The Division”.

“Ubisoft fans are in for a treat at EGX as three upcoming heavyweight games from the publisher will be playable on the show floor”, said David Lilley, Managing Director of Gamer Events. “Visitors to EGX will have yet more bragging rights as they’ll get their hands on Ubisoft’s The Division before all their mates. Bring on September!”.

EGX will take place at the NEC, Birmingham from 24-27 September 2015. For more information about all the activity at the event, including eSports, hundreds of playable games and dozens of exclusive developer announcements, please visit www.egx.net/egx.

Playstation News: Blood Bowl 2: the Dark Elves’ tricks & treats, in a gameplay video!

logo_bloodbowl2

 

After revealing more details with its Overview TrailerBlood Bowl 2, the sequel to the video game adaptation of Games Workshop‘s famous board game that combines American football with the fantasy world of Warhammer, today exposes the match philosophy of the Dark Elves!



Evil beyond belief, skilled without doubt, the Dark Elves take to the pitch to show the world their superiority. Dark Elf teams prefer a malevolent and spiteful running game over the passing of their goodly cousins. Backed up by the ruthless Witch Elves and dangerous assassins, a Dark Elf team has all the tools to power through rather than around any opposition line. Dark Elves are very agile, and each of their players is a potential thrower, catcher and more importantly, scorer. However, while they like to get up-close and personal on the pitch, they are definitely not the most resilient Blood Bowl players, and replacing a player who suffered an “accidental death” will cost you…

Blood Bowl 2 is currently available for pre-order, with a bonus, one of two additional races (the Wood Elves or the Lizardmen). Players who pre-order the game on Steam will also receive access to the Multiplayer Beta of the game, which will start a few weeks before release. Click here for more info.

Blood Bowl 2 will release on PS4, Xbox One and PC on September 22.
