Your First Look at Amy Hennig's Star Wars Game Can Be Compressed into a GIF

Sith sense

EA Games practically had nothing to show during its press conference last night, but it did manage to roll off a second or two of ex-Uncharted creative director Amy Hennig's upcoming Star Wars title. In development at Dead Space developer Visceral, this one's not due out until 2018, but as expected – it all looks Naughty Dog-esque...

What Time Do Ubisoft, Sony PlayStation's E3 2016 Press Conferences Start?

Catching fire

The doors of the Los Angeles Convention Centre haven't even opened yet, but E3 2016 is already in full swing. Following on from EA and Bethesda's press conferences, it's now time for Ubisoft and Sony PlayStation to take to the stage. As was the case yesterday, we've produced a handy guide to show you when the media briefing

E3 2016: Mafia III Looks and Sounds the Part on PS4

Mafia III Looks and Sounds the Part on PS4

The biz

We feel a little bit sorry for Mafia III. While competing titles are popping up in publisher or platform holder press conferences, Lincoln Clay and his cronies have been left to fend for themselves – earning only a spot during IGN's live coverage. Still, this 22 minute gameplay demo which debuted last night is surprisingly strong – it...

E3 2016: Is Grow Up the Sequel to Grow Home?

Is Grow Up the Sequel to Grow Home?

A new leaf?

The European games ratings board, PEGI, may have inadvertently stolen a little of Ubisoft's thunder. A page on its website currently lists a rating for a new game, entitled Grow Up. It sounds to us like a sequel to the cutesy, 3D platformer Grow Home, with PEGI's rating of 3"" backing this up somewhat. Another interesting tidbit is...

Round Up: What Did Bethesda Announce At Its E3 2016 Press Conference?

What Did Bethesda Announce At Its E3 2016 Press Conference?

Not a lot

Bethesda's E3 2016 press conference was notably lacking in, well… Anything of note, really. The publisher – which put on a stellar show last year – ambled out of the gate with a lacklustre selection of titles, and while the likes of Dishonored 2 and Skyrim Special Edition do legitimately look great… They're not exactly getting...

E3 2016: Go To Hell with New DOOM Multiplayer and Snapmap DLC

Go To Hell with New DOOM Multiplayer and Snapmap DLC

Forged through fire

While DOOM may stand well enough on its own legs with its formidable campaign, its multiplayer options are solid treats on the side to conduct your next demon-slaying forays. However, one thing that these additional modes lack in various ways is more variety, and thankfully id Software is appropriately addressing these concerns...

Here's What's Next For Fallout 4's DLC on PS4

We're going to Nuka World

Bethesda revealed what's next for Fallout 4 at its E3 2016 press conference, and while a couple of meagre add-on packs had many fans groaning, the good news is that the open world role-playing shooter is getting what looks to be another sizeable expansion in August. But first, let's rewind to the not-so-exciting stuff...

Bethesda Takes the Mask Off Dishonored 2 in Gameplay Showcase

Take back what's yours

At the end of its tepid E3 presser, Bethesda showed off the first gameplay footage of Dishonored 2. This started with a good look at what the custom game engine, called Void, can do. Developer Arkane expressed its aim of making the sequel look like a painting come to life, much like the first game, and following a showreel...

Fus Ro Dayum

As the leaks foretold, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is bringing its brand of open world fantasy to PlayStation 4 later this year. The remastered edition was confirmed by Bethesda during its E3 2016 press conference.

You Can Download DOOM's First Level on PS4 for Free

DOOM's day

Shareware was a big deal when DOOM first started out, so Bethesda's trying to bring back some of that love – by basically releasing a demo for the FPS on the PlayStation Store. The trial – which features the first level from the critically acclaimed campaign – is available on the PlayStation 4 right now, so give it a go if you want...

Talking Point: Did Bethesda Bring the Big Guns to E3 2016?

Did Bethesda Bring the Big Guns to E3 2016?

All of the Fallout

This year marked only the second ever Bethesda press conference, but already the organisation feels like part of the E3 furniture. Its media briefing earlier today centred on the likes of Dishonored 2 and Fallout 4 DLC, but it also included announcements of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition and Prey, too. But what did...

E3 2016: Wolfenstein: The New Colossus May Be the Next Title from Machine Games

Wolfenstein: The New Colossus May Be the Next Title from Machine Games

Shadow of the Colossus

A dismal Bethesda press conference concluded without any mention of the rumoured Wolfenstein 2 – or did it? Eagle-eyed fans spotted reference to The New Colossus in the media briefing's inspired DOS opening, with its release date blanked out. It's safe to assume that this is what Machine Games is working on – even though...

Here's Your First Look at The Walking Dead: Season 3 on PS4

Clem the killer

This author often feels like the only person on the planet that preferred The Walking Dead: Season 2 to its award-winning predecessor, but your humble host thought that the development of Clem's character was really great. The Walking Dead: Season 3 promises to be something special, then, with the once optimistic tween now turning...
