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...
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...
The Last of Us: One Night Live included a performance of the game's score and a live read of key scenes featuring the game's main actors, directed by Naughty Dog creative director and writer Neil Druckmann. It also included the performance of an unused The Last of Us epilogue scene, in which Joel...
We still have no firm release date for The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, but a bunch of new info was released earlier today. Most of it relates to the console editions, but there's some interesting details related to sharing game seeds. Each randomly generated run has its own seed name, which can be...
Back in April, we reported on a rumor that the PlayStation 4 was getting MP3 support. Nothing official came from Sony, but many people thought it likely that the console would get some sort of external music compatibility at some point. Recently, we got more evidence that such an update is in the...
Last week, modder TheWorse released the final version of his now infamous Watch Dogs graphical mod, and we decided to put it to the test by offering it up to the angry god we call the Large Pixel Collider. Ubisoft has stated that the mod could have a negative impact on performance and gameplay, so...
