Unconfirmed

Resident Evil Revelations

What exactly is Resident Evil: Revelations Unveiled Edition? If a newly posted Achievements list at Exophase (via Joystiq) is to be believed, it's a console port of the Nintendo 3DS title Resident Evil: Revelations. The game is certainly console controls-friendly enough, though one has to wonder what an HD port of a 3DS game might look like.

Keep in mind that Capcom hasn't actually confirmed the existence of such a port. The list of Xbox 360 cheevos certainly seems to nod in the direction of the 3DS game's content, but it's nothing that an Internet hoaxster couldn't have conceived. We're checking this out with Capcom, so stay tuned for more when we hear it.




Borderlands 2 DLC Details Leak Ahead Of Release Date Reveal

We recently learned that the title of the third Borderlands 2 DLC pack is most likely Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt, but further data mining over the weekend has led to some additional details as well. A Reddit user who took the time to dig through the game's recent PlayStation 3 update uncovered a load of info on the coming DLC pack as well as additional details of planned character customization content packs.

Some of this info falls into spoiler territory, so here's a text buffer for those who would prefer to be surprised by what's coming in the third Borderlands 2 DLC. If you absolutely can't wait and need to know more, hit the jump for the full rundown.

The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim "Dragonborn" Official DLC Trailer »


 

Skyrim's Dragonborn DLC arrives tomorrow, December 4, 2012, but you won't have to wait that long for information about the expansion's return trip to the island of Solstheim, last seen as an expansion for Morrowind. An alleged Dragonborn beta tester revealed the major facts about the content pack over at TheOuthousers (via CVG).

Be warned before you follow the source link: there are lots of spoilers to be found (assuming the info is true). You might simply prefer to wait for the DLC's launch tomorrow and find out for yourself. I will say one thing though: there's (again, supposedly) an Achievement for taming and riding five dragons. FIVE.

Insane

One of the biggest bummers of 2012 came when the ailing THQ canceled production on the Guillermo del Toro-conceived Insane and returned the rights to the highly regarded filmmaker. Well don't cry anymore. An unconfirmed report from BloodyDisgusting notes that Insane is back in the hands of a new developer, a different developer. Presumably that means there's a new publisher on board as well.

The report doesn't mention which studio is signed on to deliver Insane, but it does say that the first developer del Toro pitched is the one that said yes. I'm confident Saints Row dev Volition would have done a killer job for THQ given the time and the resources; hopefully the newcomer is equally strong.

Assuming the report is accurate, the bad news is that Insane now won't be showing its terrifying face until 2015 at the earliest. You can bet that we'll be well into the next console generation by then, so it's safe to consider Insane a next-gen title at this point.

Assassin's Creed 3

Yes, here's another one of those "let's jump to fun conclusions based on a third-party-hosted online survey" news posts! GMI Survey has an Assassin's Creed 3 post-mortem survey online (via Joystiq) that asks a lengthy series of questions about your gamer experience, your time with AC3, and, most importantly, the future of the Assassin's Creed series and what you'd like to see from it.

Don't read too deeply into these questions, though it's worth running through the survey if you want to let the powers-that-be know what you'd like to see more/less of in an Assassin's Creed game. Possibilities such as co-op story missions, underwater action, second screen functionality, and a new present-day hero are all mentioned (among others).

Ubisoft hasn't mentioned anything about its future Assassin's plans beyond the upcoming Tyranny of King George DLC; this survey's results will presumably help inform pre-production decisions on whatever comes after it.

Yoshi's Land Wii U Listed By Online Retailers

As it turns out, Yoshi's Land for Wii U may actually be a real thing. The title popped up mere hours after the Wii U's November 18, 2012 launch after a new console owner accidentally stumbled into a debug mode containing a testing version of Miiverse that featured a Community listing for a game called Yoshi's Land Wii U.

Nintendo promptly plugged up the exploit and issued a statement that basically framed anything appearing in the backend Miiverse as unconfirmed and purely for testing/mock-up purposes. Only now the Canadian portals for Best Buy and Future Shop offer up product listings -- complete with a synopsis -- for Yoshi's Land Wii U (via Polygon).

Nintendo Wii

Nintendo is just more than a week past the release of its Wii U console and now there's word that its Wii predecessor is due for a Wii Mini reboot. The rumor comes from an allegedly leaked internal release schedule from a "major retailer," which points to a December 7, 2012 release (via Nintendo World Report).

Assuming the leaked document is accurate, the Wii Mini console is described as a "compact Nintendo Wii console" that includes a Sensor Bar, Nunchuk, and Wii Remote Plus with protective sleeve. There's no price or any other detail to be gleaned from the leak, though December 7 isn't exactly far off. We'll just have to wait and see.


Halo 4

Microsoft has three map packs heading to Halo 4 in the coming months, and now it looks like we have exact release dates to work with thanks to an allegedly leaked dashboard ad (via The Halo Council, Destructoid). Assuming the info is correct, the Crimson Map pack is up first, on December 10, 2012, the Majestic Map Pack follows on February 25, 2013, and the Castle Map Pack arrives a few months later on April 1.

All of this content will be sold separately, though you can also drop 2,000 MS Points on the War Games Map Pass to get all three, presumably at a 400 MS Points discount (figuring on 800 MS Points apiece for a la carte purchases). The War Games Map Pass was also included as a bonus in the Halo 4 Limited Edition release, so make sure you don't have it before you spend any points on it.

Just keep in mind that these dates aren't concrete. Microsoft previously confirmed titles and release windows, but this banner ad has yet to be confirmed as legit.

Xbox TV Reportedly Incoming In 2013

5 Reasons The Xbox 720 Won't Be Named Xbox 8

There's still no official word from Microsoft on what it's Xbox 360 successor plans are, but multiple sources "familiar with Redmond's plans" tell Polygon that the company's first steps into the eighth hardware generation will happen in 2013. It sounds like Microsoft will be offering options suited to both a casual gaming audience and a serious gaming audience, with the new device taking the form of a set-top box.

The box will be powered by "core components of Windows 8" and will "support casual gaming titles rather than full Xbox games typically found on a dedicated console." Presumably the other half of this two-pronged hardware attack is better equipped to deliver the sort of entertainment experiences that Halo fans would be after. The word from Polygon's sources is that the set-top box work is also meant to gauge how scalable the next-gen Xbox framework is, with the goal being to bring the Xbox experience to an assortment of devices.

Rainbow 6 Patriots

Ubisoft's shooter, Tom Clancy's Rainbow 6: Patriots, has been MIA since we first heard about it late in 2011. The loss of three top developers had lead some to believe Rainbow 6: Patriots was in trouble, but Ubisoft's CEO, Yves Guillemot, told Polygon the game is still in production.

"The only thing I can say is that we have a good team working on it, and it's really looking good. So when it will come, it will surprise the industry."

The not-too-surprising part of his statement included some insight on the next generation of consoles. When asked if Rainbow 6: Patriots could be a next-gen shooter, Guillemot replied, "there's a good chance it can be."

DmC Son Of Sparda Edition Revealed, Includes DLC

DmC: Devil May Cry is one of the first big-name releases of next year, with the release set for January 15, 2013, and it looks like Capcom's going to be offering super-fans the opportunity to buy into some bonuses with the Son of Sparda collector's edition. It hasn't been officially announced, but you can check out an image of the set and its contents above (via All Games Beta).

Assuming the promo pic is accurate, the Son of Sparda edition will include a copy of the game, a replica of Dante's necklace, and the Samurai Pack DLC, which transforms Dante's shotgun, scythe, and axe into "Samurai Devastators" and gives players free upgrade points at the beginning of the game. This may or may not be a Europe-exclusive set (based on the PEGI rating), though nothing at all is confirmed until Capcom officially reveals it.

Grand Theft Auto 5 Promo Materials Point To Spring 2013 Release

It looks like Rockstar Games is shooting for a spring 2013 release for Grand Theft Auto 5, based on photos of leaked promo materials posted by GTA-Five.pl (original link is dead, image via All Games Beta). Take this with a shaker full of salt, Internet. Nothing's real until Rockstar confirms it, as convincing as this image might be.

That said, the chances of GTA 5 showing up in spring 2013 were high already. Rockstar hasn't shown much of the upcoming game beyond a 2011 teaser trailer and a handful of screenshots, but its games historically tend to be released in spring. What's more, we reecntly learned that Game Informer will be getting an exclusive look at the game in an upcoming issue.

Even if this purportedly leaked material isn't legit, chances are still pretty high that we'll be returning to Los Santos in spring 2013.

Borderlands Legends iOS Game Outed For October Release

The fan-requested Borderlands 2 release for PlayStation Vita may never arrive, but it looks like you'll soon be able to take your looting and shooting on the road with the iOS-exclusive Borderlands Legends. The game's existence is outed in an ad found in the Borderlands 2 digital strategy guide, a Gearbox forums post reveals (via Eurogamer).

The ad reveals that players will be able to step into the dusty boots of the first game's four Vault Hunters -- Brick, Lilith, Mordecai, or Roland -- in a wave-based survival shooter. Bullet points tout the inclusion of randomized missions, 36 powers and abilities, a cover system, Fight for Your Life mode, and "thousands of different weapons." No bajillions? Blasphemy!

In all seriousness though, sweet. I will play this.





Halo 4 Leaked? Microsoft Investigating

Has Halo 4 been leaked? Several videos (which have been taken down) of people playing the highly-anticipated first-person shooter began showing up on the Internet recently along with pictures of gamers' Xbox Live profiles showing them playing the campaign. There have also been various box shots creeping around like the one above. Usually we're skeptical, and we still are, but regardless of if people are playing the game or not, Microsoft isn't happy.

“We have seen the reports of Halo 4 content being propped on the Web and are working closely with our security teams and law enforcement to address the situation," said a Microsoft spokesperson.

The Halo franchise has seen leaks like this before, with Halo 2, Halo 3, and  Halo: Reach all leaking before they could hit store shelves. It's kind of like tradition at this point. The official release of Halo 4 is November 6, 2012.

Rockstar Games Collection Outed In Retailer Listings

Product listings for Rockstar Games Collection: Edition 1 at both Buy.com and CD Universe seem to confirm the existence of a value-priced collection that gathers together some of the GTA dev's most recent games. If box art posted by All Games Beta is accurate -- and it certainly looks legit -- the collection brings together four top-rated games for PlayStation 3; the online listings also nod to an Xbox 360 release as well.

As you can see in the box art, "Edition 1" of the Rockstar Games Collection includes Red Dead Redemption, L.A. Noire, Midnight Club: Los Angeles Complete Collection (the core game plus the South Central DLC), and Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City. Rockstar has yet to confirm anything officially, but the product listings suggest a $60 price tag and a November 2012 release for the collection.
