  • Friday Releases for August 25, 2017: Naruto Shippuden, Velocity 2X, Madden NFL 18, F1 2017, and One Piece

    Hey, it's Friday and that means a lot of games are being released today? I guess so. Usually these things are done on Tuesday but it's 2017 and nothing makes sense.

    Whatever, let's get on with it.

    One Piece: Unlimited World Red Deluxe Edition came out today on the PC and PlayStation 4. A Switch version is coming on September 29, 2017.

    In ONE PIECE: Unlimited World Red Deluxe Edition, players will join the Straw Hat pirate crew as they set their sights for the Forgotten Island with their new mysterious raccoon friend Pato. After landing on the island the Straw Hat pirates are kidnapped by The Red Count; a powerful pirate who escaped the depths of Impel Down, an infamous underwater maximum-security prison for the most dangerous criminals the world has seen. Luffy must explore the Forgotten Island, accept quests from residents, and take on enemies as he attempts to save his kidnapped friends. Console players will be able to use local co-op mode to enjoy the main story with a friend or battle bosses together in Battle Coliseum. Players will be able to select from a large roster of popular ONE PIECE characters, each with their own unique attacks which fans of the show will instantly recognize.

    • Racing fans can give F1 2017 a go today on the PS4, XB1, and PC thanks to Codemasters.

    Expanded Career:
    Players can make history as they hone their skills and develop their car over multiple seasons in the Career. First, they create their driver by selecting from a range of avatars, including female drivers for the first time, helmet designs (including community created versions), race numbers and then the team they want to begin their Career with. The Research and Development system is heavily expanded, with 115 upgrades now available, while the player also has to manage their engine and gearbox. Earn resource points by taking part in new Practice Programmes including ‘Fuel Management’ and ‘Race Pace’. The classic cars also take center stage in the enhanced Career mode as players are invited to race them in the new Invitational events.

    New ‘Championships’ Mode:
    Championship mode allows players to experience unique race events following different rules and structures from the official Championship in both modern and classic cars. For example, the Classic Street Series sees you race the iconic cars around the six street circuits on the calendar.

    Race Classic F1 Cars:
    Get behind the wheel of 12* iconic F1 cars from the history of the sport. The classic cars are also integrated into the Career mode, and can be raced in both Single Class and Multi Class Races. Players can race the following cars:

    1995 Ferrari 412 T2
    2002 Ferrari F2002
    2004 Ferrari F2004

    Enhanced Multiplayer:
