Official PlayStation Magazine UK new issue: FIFA 13 review, Assassin’s Creed 3, Far Cry 3 and more
Loads of good stuff in this month’s issue. Starting with our double cover for each of out huge game features. I’ve gone the Assassin’s Creed 3 one up there but you could also get a Far Cry 3 one staring everybody’s homicidal crazy man Vaas. Then’s there’s all the stuff! Things like Fuse, the new shooter from Insomniac, and our Resident Evil 6 and FIFA 13 review.
I recently went to see Insomniac out in LA to get a look at it’s new co-op shooter Fuse. It’s a game based on alien tech guns and four player shootouts. Not only did I get a chance to play it but I spoke to the developers and studio head Ted Price to find out all about the Ratchet & Clank dev’s new game.
More studio access as we visited Ubisoft in Montreal to get a look at both Assassin’s Creed 3 and Far Cry 3. Assassin’s Creed 3, the first proper sequel in the series after all the 2.5s of Brotherhood and Revelations, is looking immense with naval battles, a huge frontier to explore and a totally revamped combat system.
Far Cry 3 on the other hand is a mental shooter focusing on jungle survival in the ultimate holiday from hell. Imagine The Beach with more guns and you’ve got the idea. We were one of the few magazines given access to the studio for both games, to play them and interview the devs so you won’t get much fresher info.
We’ve also got some of the biggest reviews around with FIFA 13, PES 2013,Resident Evil, Borderlands 2 and loads more. FIFA 13 is “the most convincing representation of the sport” Although it’s “not streets ahead of PES any more. In our PES 2013 review on the other hand we say it’s a “genuinely worthwhile alternative”. Resi 6 has its problems although it “just about averages out to the good” and “certainly gives you your money’s worth”. And Borderlands? Our Borderlands r review makes it clear this is “one of the most imaginative and rewarding shooters of the year”.
Elsewhere we’ve the usual mix of news, previews, review and opinion and and an interview with Hitman: Absolution’s director Tore Blystad.
