The Wii U received an update today, with mainly convenience changes. Folders are now added, that will enable you to store games and apps. Other options include the ability to hide software on the Quick Start Menu and the appearance of a download management icon in the Quick Start Menu.
For fans of Battlefield 4, they are being treated to a new update which is quite hefty, including a new preset entitled "Classic Mode". The mode is described as something for skilled players looking for a challenge. Rules on those servers will have similar settings to previous Battlefield games, such as only being able to spawn on the squad leader. A customizable HUD is included in the update, enabling players to zoom in on the mini map and adjust the transparency of icons. Also player movement has been adjusted to more resemble Battlefield 3, and recoil has been reduced. Lastly the Battlefield 4 Netcode (gameplay updates) has been given several tweaks and is now the fastest in franchise history of counting client-to-client values. HIt detection is still something being looked at.
If you are not an owner of Battlefield 4, but the information above has you interested (...and you have a PS3), you're in luck. Playstation Plus members will be able to download a one week trial of Battlefield 4. This is a full game trial, with single player and multiplayer included.
Assassin's Creed will receive yet another game in the franchise. Assassin's Creed Identity is a 3D action adventure game giving players the ability to send their assassin through Italy. There will be some RPG elements as well, such as skill points and different sets of gear. The game is currently available for iPad in the Australian and New Zealand iTunes stores, with a full international release planned for 2015. A link to the forum post of Assassin's Creed Identity can be found here.
