Game News: Andreas, Outlast, GTAV, Xbox

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
To celebrate the game’s tenth anniversary, Rockstar Games has revamped and re-released the classic “Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas” which is now available on Xbox Live with an anniversary day pricing of just under $4.

The new version sports 720p resolution, enhanced draw distance, achievement support and eleven secret achievements. Sadly it doesn’t boast enhanced graphics of any other kind beyond the resolution bump. [Source: Polygon]

Outlast 2
Montreal-based developer Red Barrels has confirmed that they are working on a sequel to their debut horror game title “Outlast”. Designer and co-founder Philippe Morin tells Bloody Disgusting that the game will take place in the same world as “Outlast,” but in a very different part of it:

“The game will be a survival horror experience and it will take place in the same universe as Outlast, but it will have different characters and a different setting. We might go back to Mount Massive Asylum one day, but for now we have new ideas and themes we’d like to explore and we think we’re cooking up something special.”

Grand Theft Auto V
A ten-page feature on the remaster of “Grand Theft Auto V” in the latest issue of Official PlayStation Magazine makes specific mention of the game being released at 1080p on PS4.

The feature says the PS4 version sports “glimmering 1080p presentation, hugely increased draw distance, 100 new songs, fresh wild-life, a bumper version of GTA Online.” [Source: VG247]

Xbox One
Microsoft is set to drop the price of the Xbox One by $50 in the United States starting November 2nd and ending January 3rd. This means the standalone, Kinect-free console will retail for $349 for two months while bundles will range from $349 to $449.

This marks the first time the initially more expensive console is being sold below the price of main competitor PlayStation 4. [Source: Total XBox]
