The Division: Faction Facts

The Division: Faction Facts

“When our city started to collapse, the dark side of humanity took control of the streets.” Crisis situations bring out the best of people….and the worst. In the aftermath of the Black Friday attack, New York city has been taken over by various factions. Here’s the rundown of who you’ll be meeting in the grim streets of Manhattan. SHD (Strategic Homeland Division) SHD, A.K.A. “The Division“, is a response to the weakness and problems, which have been identified during simulations like Operation Dark Winter and other disaster scenarios in the real-world. The unit’s agents are sleeper agents, but are highly trained to ensure that the key infrastructures and [...]

Didya know about the Siege Spectator Mode?

Didya know about the Siege Spectator Mode?

LEARN FROM THE BEST…OR DIE LIKE THE REST Rainbow Six Siege offers players a new way to experience its tense counter-terrorist action. The Spectator Cam allows an 11th person to participate in the 5v5 multiplayer matches by giving them the chance to witness the action through two different camera options. With the traditional First-Person View, the spectator can see through the eyes of an individual player during a match, while the Tactical View lets them switch between following individual players automatically, or zooming out over the map to see everything that’s happening. You can get your first look at the [...]

Interview with the Devs: Deliver Us the Moon

Interview with the Devs: Deliver Us the Moon

Deliver Us The Moon is set in the near future where the earth’s resources are nearly depleted. The nations of the world have come together to create the Worldwide Space Agency (WSA). Under the banner of the WSA, astronauts were sent to the moon to conduct research aimed at securing the future of mankind. Sadly, due to bickering between countries, no solution has been agreed upon. Now, with man’s absolute last resources, you, a brave astronaut gone rogue, take the great step to the moon in a do-or-die secret mission to save humanity. Koen Deetman, the game director was nice enough [...]

Interview with a Cheat (Developer)

Interview with a Cheat (Developer)

If you’ve been playing video games for more than a week, you’re sure to have run into a cheater or two. We wanted to get in the head of a cheater/hacker so we reached out to a pretty famous one who happens to run a “game cheating” website which sells these hacks. He chose to remain anonymous, so for the rest of the interview, we’re going to refer to him simply as “L3p3r“. XP4T: How long have you been hacking and how did you get started with hacking? L3p3r: I have been making cheats for games since somewhere in the [...]

Most Anticipated Games of 2016

Most Anticipated Games of 2016

From the dying embers of lackluster 2015 we look ahead to 2016 with hope, hope that finally shit is going to get real, hope that Ubisoft is going to deliver on its promises, hope that these f@cking rigs we built with our bare hands are going to get punished by some motherfunking bitching gaming awesomeness. And what gives us this hope? these mofo’s right here…….. Cyberpunk 2077   Cyberpunk 2077 is an upcoming ARPG that was announced back in 2012, based on the Cyberpunk 2020 series of tabletop role-playing games. It’s currently being developed by those those busy boys and girls at CD Projekt [...]

Seven Days to Learn: Rainbow Six: Siege

Seven Days to Learn: Rainbow Six: Siege

So, there is a new addiction going on in the group … It’s called Rainbow Six: Siege. Seriously, everyone is going a bit crazy, as you can see here, here, and here – and basically everywhere if you have been following us for the last couple of weeks. And of course I was too cheap to get the game on release so I started about six weeks after everyone already familiarized themselves with it. Since you seemed to enjoy the diary style I did a couple of years ago I’ll just take notes about the first seven (spoiler alert: It’s [...]

PC Gaming in… 2006

PC Gaming in… 2006

Greetings, XP4Ts. You may have noticed that the XP4T blog here is back in business, which I hope is as happy news for you as it is for us. As you may or may not know, we all work in the industry ourselves, so time is a somewhat limited resource and the site sometimes goes on an unannounced hiatus for a while. But this time of year is often serendipitous for many of our schedules, so here we are again. Welcome back! At Christmas this year I had a cracker in which the motto read, ‘The road ahead is often illuminated by the [...]

The Death of Co-Op?

The Death of Co-Op?

Over the years we’ve seen cooperative elements in video games evolve and even transcend our wildest dreams. There is no doubt that this trajectory will continue, and gamers will be astounded time and time again with rich co-op features and ever elaborate game play modes. For clarification: cooperative games are in and of themselves not going anywhere anytime soon, but rather we as gamers will be hard-pressed to actually enjoy cooperative games with friends simply due to the over-saturation of the co-op market. Back in the day there were only a hand-full of games that were truly co-op games in [...]

Do The Division & Siege Share the same Universe?

Do The Division & Siege Share the same Universe?

-Or, The Division & Siege Mash-up! By no stretch of the imagination is it too far fetched that both Tom Clancy’s The Division and Tom Clancy’s Siege share the same universe. Obviously from a time line perspective, story elements from The Division wouldn’t be in Siege due to the fact that The Division centers around one particular event and the consequences of the aftermath. But on the flip side, if anyone was to be prepared for the downfall of western civilization and the restructuring of society, then Rainbow Six Siege operators are your go-to guys and gals.  It would stand [...]
