In this week’s Totally Rated, In this week’s Totally Rated, #CallofDutyVanguard is finally official, #CyberPunk revealed some free DLC and #FarCry VR: Dive Into Insanity hits the market – but is it really a Far Cry Game?
Totally Rated features reviews and opinions of what’s hot and what’s not in the tech and gaming world.
Bringing together leading titles from across the industry, we hear first hand from those who have reviewed – and rated – the very latest games and products on the market.
In news and after a year of endless game delays and months of leaks, Call of Duty Vanguard is finally official.
Vanguard returns to World War II, placing you in the shoes of four separate playable characters as they fight against axis forces on several fronts.
Vanguard will also be implemented into the Warzone ‘metaverse’, which basically means more of the Call of Duty we all know and love.
In Tech, this week TechRadar got to try out a brand new Far Cry game with an interesting VR twist!
TechRadar’s Gerald Lynch was one of the team who got the chance to test out Far Cry VR: Dive into Insanity: “Far Cry VR: Dive Into Insanity itself is very straightforward.
“However, the interlocking emergent systems of the Far Cry series are gone – there are no stealthy kills, no animal taming, no crafting and no open world.
“Dive Into Insanity is very much a points-based, on-rails shooter. There’s more in common here with arcade staples like Time Crisis or House of the Dead than the free-roaming we’ve come to expect from Far Cry. And yet in the context of a multiplayer shooter, that’s fine. Chasing the highest score is far more of a novelty when side-by-side physically (read: virtually) with your pals. Dive Into Insanity does a good job of recreating the visual feel of Far Cry’s third instalment – all lush tropical jungles, bandana-wearing pirates, rusty container sheds and exploding barrels. There’s even a hallucinogenic shootout in a mysterious cavern through which sea creatures float and pirates take potshots at you from the ceiling – a high point of the experience. Zero Latency VR’s weapon peripheral is responsive and accurate too (provided you’ve correctly entered your height, that is), letting you switch on the fly between a bullet-spewing, Rambo-aping machine gun and a more refined and accurate one-hit-kill crossbow.

And finally, this week CyberPunk revealed some free DLC but is it enough to pull you back into the world of Night City?
The free DLC comes bundled with the 1.3 patch that is live right now.
Additions include a couple of nice new jackets for your player character V and a new car skin.
But the big one is the alternative look for the ever present Johnny Silverhand played by Keanu Reeves. His new look can be activated from the ‘addition content’ tab from the main menu and gives Johnny a freshly chopped hair-do and an unbuttoned black jacket.
New episodes of Totally Rated will roll out every week.
