Hello Games joins the bunch in testing out virtual reality

It seems that more and more developers are getting into the groove of virtual reality as Hello Games, developer of No Man's Sky, has supposedly started out testing the VR headset dev kits that they obtained.

According to VG 24/7, the developers are currently testing out stairs in the VR game though it has not yet been revealed what game they are currently testing it on-and more importantly, which game the VR headset support will be making its way into the public gaming scene.

In any case, the team behind No Man's Sky is having a grand time, if their Vine clips are anything to go by, as you can see in the link above.

New Assassin's Creed: Unity leak found

The upcoming Assassins' Creed: Unity has been leaked yet again via another screenshot taken from a now taken-down video of a game footage. GameRant has gotten its hands on the snapshot, which apparently shows the new protagonist in the middle of the French Revolution setting of the game.

Rumours have also stated that the protagonist is already named Arnaud or Arno, and given the French Revolution setting of this installment, it will be interesting to see where it will take the whole idea of an assassin using his power to take out those in abusive positions of power.
