Get Set for Valley of the Yetis in Far Cry 4's Season Pass

Fur-person shooter

Ubisoft’s gone and put its Bigfoot in it again. The French firm has announced a Season Pass for its upcoming Himalayan first-person shooter Far Cry 4, which will come with a selection of additional missions and objectives for the most ardent adventurers. Costing a pricey £23.99/$29.99, one of the extra tasks will see you take...

Sony: We'll Show You a Bunch of Stuff That We Shouldn't at PlayStation Experience

Choo choo

Are those the screeching wheels of an approaching hype train that we can hear on the horizon? We’ve attempted to play down Sony’s impending PlayStation Experience event – after all, excitement often leads to bitter disappointment – but SCEA chief Scott Rohde doesn’t appear to be on the same page as us. Speaking on the latest...

Interview: Will Tom Clancy's The Division Deliver on the PS4?

Will Tom Clancy's The Division Deliver on the PS4?

Massive expectations

Ubisoft sure knows how to make a splash. Tom Clancy’s The Division, much like Watch Dogs before it, dropped jaws at E3 2013, when it was announced for the PlayStation 4. The game – an open world third-person shooter with strong role-playing influences – not only promised to drag the industry into the next generation with...

Review: The Walking Dead: A Telltale Games Series - The Complete First Season (PlayStation 4)

The Walking Dead: A Telltale Games Series - The Complete First Season (PlayStation 4)

Long road ahead

Telltale Games had been around for quite some time before it deployed the first instalment in its episodic The Walking Dead tie-in way back in 2012. The Californian company had previously enjoyed varying levels of success with its Sam & Max series, but was still looking for a smash hit at the time. That changed when it introduced...

Tekken 7 Takes the Iron Fist Tournament to Task in Arcades Next Year

Jin and tonic

Tekken 7 will punch its way into Japanese arcades in February 2015, publisher Bandai Namco has announced. The beat-‘em-up was only revealed this summer at the Evo 2014 championships in July, but the organisation has been location testing the release for several weeks now overseas. This news is significant, as a PlayStation 4 port...

News: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's Launch Trailer Proves That War Never Changes

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's Launch Trailer Proves That War Never Changes

We'll fight them in the future

It’s become ‘cool’ to hate on Call of Duty, so we’re eager to avoid jumping aboard the bandwagon. That said, we swear that the folks at Activision have a scientific formula for these launch trailers. After all, this Advanced Warfare clip checks all of the boxes; from loud cries of ‘ooh rah’ to an edgy...

Push Rewind: PS4 Firmware Update 2.00, Grand Theft Auto V Bundles, NPD Sales

PS4 Firmware Update 2.00, Grand Theft Auto V Bundles, NPD Sales

The evil within

Push Rewind is back from the dead ready to haunt you ahead of Hallowe’en. Actually, this editor was simply too busy to put together this regular feature last week, so unfortunately it had to lay low for a few days. Thankfully, we’re back with a vengeance this time – and with more reviews and features than you can shake a...

Review: MXGP: The Official Motocross Game (PlayStation 4)

MXGP: The Official Motocross Game (PlayStation 4)

Scrubs up fine

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. That’s the mentality that MotoGP maker Milestone appears to be adopting with MXGP: The Official Motocross Game following March’s somewhat unspectacular PlayStation 3 outing. Having been on the receiving end of a bit of a critical soiling, the Italian outfit has now opted to port a...

Review: Jet Car Stunts (PlayStation Network)

Jet Car Stunts (PlayStation Network)

Trials and error

Jet Car Stunts’ arrival on the PlayStation 3 and Vita marks the popular mobile game’s first foray onto consoles. Historically, adapted smartphone titles end up feeling a little, well, off when they’re converted to consoles – but there are exceptions. The big question, then, is whether Grip Games has managed to make True...

Legend of Korra, Samurai Warriors 4, Just Dance 2015

Korra, blimey

There’s set to be a spot of animal magic on the PlayStation Store this week, as zany side-scroller Escape Goat 2 bleats aside the competition, and trots onto Sony’s next-gen system. It’ll be joined by fellow curiosity Fluster Cluck, a four-player party game starring chickens in space suits. It’s a jungle out there. If...

Review: F1 2014 (PlayStation 3)

F1 2014 (PlayStation 3)

Stuck in the past

One of the hardest things to achieve in a yearly franchise is a hook to keep people coming back. It’s true of not only sports games, but the sports themselves – after all, no one wants to invest time into something that stays the same every year. For Formula 1, the answer has been the biggest shake-up in a generation, with new...

Review: Pier Solar and the Great Architects (PlayStation 4)

Pier Solar and the Great Architects (PlayStation 4)

Pierless

Pier Solar and the Great Architects (or Pier Solar HD) is an updated re-release of a game that launched on the Sega Mega Drive in 2010, and in truth, that tells you just about everything that you need to know. This unashamedly stodgy RPG trades in genre tropes with wild abandon, while brazenly attempting to tug at your nostalgia. And in...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 43

Sweet talker

Like a particularly aggressive salesman, WAYP refuses to get out of your face. It only feels like a few days ago that this editor was compiling Issue 42, but already Issue 43 is here – we’ll be penning the Christmas special soon. Until then, it’s business as usual: we’ll tell you everything that we’re playing, and then open...
