The 2014 International Dota 2 Championships attracted record-setting online viewership numbers, including more than twice as many peak concurrent viewers as the 2013 event. In case there was any doubt that e-sports is a very big deal these days, consider them put to rest: Valve has announced that...
The future—aka 4K gaming—is made up of very, very small pixels. After spending the past two weeks checking out games on Samsung's U28D590D 4K monitor, I'm still going to call 4K gaming the near future rather than the present. Yes, you can play games at 3840x2160 pixels right now.
Ubisoft has released another update for the PC version of Watch Dogs that should "reduce" stuttering during gameplay, particularly at higher texture settings, and promised that more such fixes are still in the works. Watch Dogs has suffered from visual stutters of varying intensity since the day it...
Electronic Arts today announced a new subscription program for Xbox One called "EA Access." For $5/month (or $30/year), you get endless access to The Vault, a collection of digital EA games. EA Access is available today in beta for some users, with a wider launch planned to arrive "soon." The...
To answer the most important question that surrounds any CGI trailer for the Assassin's Creed series: the song is The Golden Age by Woodkid. As for the video, it—via the medium of acrobatics and violence—introduces a new character: Elise. Described jointly as "an independent young noblewoman" and a...
After catching a lot of heat for not having any playable female assassins in Assassin's Creed Unity, publisher Ubisoft has revealed a new female character named Elise. But she's still not a playable character. Instead, Elise is a wannabe Templar who protagonist Arno must rescue from a beheading for...
Survival gets serious in The Long Dark PG 08:57AM PDT Jul 29, 2014
Last week I wrote about the problem with survival games. Some of you loved the idea of the hypothetical game I described—which sidelines monsters and overt danger for a more atmospheric battle against the elements—and some of you thought I was mental.
Here's something for every MMO player who likes to vacuum up quests without reading the mission text: a 40 minute video summarising the bulk of Warcraft's story. It covers the series' main timeline, from events depicted in the old RTS games, to the evolving lore of World of Warcraft.
A "small team of UT veterans" began working on the project in early May. Epic said at the time that the game will be entirely free to play, with no microtransactions, including future content updates. The "next-gen competitive shooter" is planned for Windows, Linux and Mac, and will start off with...
inFamous: First Light, the upcoming standalone expansion to PlayStation 4 game inFamous: Second Son, will also be available as a disc-based release. Boxed copies will be available in the UK from 10th September, PlayStation Europe announced via its Twitter.
Virtual Reality is fun and cool and largely safe (probably). Our own Andy Kelly has been in and out of our office's Oculus Rift, and, other than some mild emotional trauma, he's pretty much fine. As part of the new SDK, Oculus VR has updated the Rift's "Health and Safety Warning" documentation, and...
The highlight feature is the introduction of 3D Blu-ray support for the console. Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida said in June that a number of highly anticipated PS4 features announced when the console was revealed in February 2013 are still in development, although he couldn't give a...
20th Century Fox has shown off a first look at Agent 47, the new Hitman film set to be released next year. The movie franchise has a new bald-headed face as its leading man - Rupert Friend (Peter Quinn from Homeland). Zachary Quinto (Spock from the new Star Trek films) also has a starring role.
The publisher said today that both titles will be on show at its Gamescom stand "and will perfectly demonstrate the versatility and power of Kojima Productions' Fox Engine, whilst delivering a new experience in visual quality and the power of the new wave of console systems".
Of all the things affected by the GameSpy shutdown, Borderlands' now-hobbled multiplayer is perhaps the most egregious. Co-op is kind of the whole point there, so it's good to hear it will soon be making a return. A Steam update yesterday stripped all the nasty SecuROM DRM from the game and its...
