The Future Is Now: “Square Enix” Introduces A First Look At Next Gen Graphics

Published

on

Thanks to ‘Final Fantasy’ developer Square Enix, we now have our first look at what we can expect from early next gen console graphics. In a demonstration labeled “Back Stage,” produced by Luminous Productions, we get a look at the clarity and depth next gen consoles like the Play Station 5 will be capable of.

The demo was meant to show off a new technique called “Ray Tracing.” Which is meant to re-create natural lighting more accurately.

“It essentially simulates the path of light traveling from a light source in a game, like a light bulb, fire, or the sun, more accurately than conventional video game lighting. The result is more realistic lighting, reflections, and shadows in a video game.” –Antonio Villas-Boas

Take a look at the demo below. Tell us what you think in the comments. Are you excited for next gen consoles?

CD Projekt Red announces Cyberpunk and Witcher 3 pushed back

Published

on

In a statement released from controversial game developer CD Projekt Red — the company announced today that Cyberpunk and the Witcher 3 next-generation updates will be postponed until next year.

The colossal gaming failure in Cyberpunk will be released in the first quarter of 2022, while the latter will be released in the second quarter of 2022. A huge disappointment for not only gamers, but a company that seems hell bent on trying to make amends for releasing an admitted “unfinished product” in the form of the mess that was Cyberpunk.

The Polish video game developer stampeded its way to global fame with the success of the Witcher 3. The critically acclaimed title has sold over 30 million copies of the game worldwide. The games which are based upon the book series by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski, and are not only critically acclaimed but also spawned a successful series which airs on Netflix starring current Superman actor Henry Cavill.

This led to major hype for their next project, the highly anticipated and highly problematic ‘Cyberpunk.’ A game that was not only unfinished and unpolished, but such a mess that it even offered refunds. Whatever the true issue of the problematic game was, the biggest issue was not only the loss of revenue due to its failure, but the company’s sterling name which had become one of the most respected in gaming.

The company promised major fixes to the title for next-gen consoles, although this was met with much doubt, many gamers still trusted the company could right their wrongs with the title. With the latest setback, it seems many gamers will get off the bandwagon here, and the company announcing such troubling news after a very critical 2021 year — it would seem the company is taking another huge loss in form of monetary value and reputation.

We will update here at Coastal House Media with any new news on this topic.

Gotham Knights Court of Owls Story Trailer and Behind-the-Scenes Featurette

Published

on

During DC FanDome last year Warner Bros. Games Montréal revealed their newest title at the Hall of Heroes which was Gotham Knights. Now returning to DC FanDome once again due to a delayed release and now releasing in 2022, they reveal a thrilling new story trailer which focuses on one of my favourite Gotham Criminal organisations, The Court of Owls.



The story trailer for the upcoming open-world, third-person action RPG features the game’s main antagonist, the fabled Court of Owls, a secret society made up of Gotham City’s wealthiest families. The trailer also introduces Oswald Cobblepot (also known as The Penguin), the infamous DC Super-Villain who seemingly knows important details about this omnipresent silent predator and the threat it poses to Gotham and its new guard of DC Super Heroes – Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood and Robin.

Also as an extra treat to those who tuned into their presentation we got to see a behind-the-scenes featurette for Gotham Knights, with commentary from Jim Lee (Comic Book Artist, Publisher & Chief Creative Officer at DC), Scott Snyder (Writer & Co-Creator of “The Court of Owls”), Greg Capullo (Comic Book Artist & Co-Creator of “The Court of Owls”), Patrick Redding (Gotham Knights Creative Director, Warner Bros. Games Montréal) and Ann Lemay (Gotham Knights Narrative Director, Warner Bros. Games Montréal), who all expand on the Courts of Owls origins, lore and inspiration in bringing this elusive enemy to the interactive world of Gotham Knights.

Gotham Knights allows players to step into the roles of Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood and Robin, a new guard of trained DC Super Heroes who must rise up as the protectors of Gotham City in the wake of Batman’s death. The game will be playable either solo or as a two-player, online cooperative experience.
