Crash Bandicoot's First PS4 Appearance Looks Awesome

Crash bash

We all collectively rolled our eyes when Crash Bandicoot was confirmed for Skylanders: Imaginators – after all, we all know how Activision treated fellow PlayStation favourite Spyro when this series started. But it looks like it's learned its lesson this time around: the Thumpin' Wumpa Island level that will appear as a timed...

Watch Dogs 2 Multiplayer Is Totally Optional, But It Looks Cool

Hack that

Much like the first Watch Dogs, Watch Dogs 2 will feature "seamless" online functionality, allowing you to connect with other players while you roam around doing story missions. You'll be able to form co-op groups with friendly hackers, take part in invasions, and even hunt down players who have been causing a bit too much trouble. On...

For Honor Should Grab Your Attention in New Gameplay Trailer

You can sign up for the alpha now

Knights versus samurai versus vikings. That's not a bad concept for a game, and we're hopeful that For Honor, Ubisoft's melee-based battle-'em-up, will live up to expectations. The gritty title's received a new gameplay trailer at Gamescom which spotlights the three abovementioned factions - and to us, it's still...

Tekken 7 Story Mode Details Dropped by Bandai Namco

Several hours long, apparently

Bandai Namco has gone on record that it's trying to create a cinematic and engaging story mode for Tekken 7. The highly anticipated fighter, which launches on PlayStation 4 early next year, has looked stellar for months now as we've guzzled down gameplay taken from the title's arcade incarnation, but will its...

Suicide Squad's Harley Quinn, Deadshot Crash into Injustice 2

Quinn-tessential

It wouldn't be a gaming convention without some new Injustice 2 announcements, and fortunately Warner Bros has rocked up right on time to reveal that Suicide Squad's Harley Quinn and Deadshot will be joining the release's roster. The former looks especially fun to play, as she uses a combination of her hammer and attack dogs to do...

Metal Gear Survives Without Hideo Kojima as Co-Op Spin-Off

Metal Gear Zombies?

Konami has revealed Metal Gear Survive at Gamescom 2016, the first game in the series to not have any input from series creator Hideo Kojima, who parted ways with the company last year following the release of The Phantom Pain. Set for a 2017 launch on PlayStation 4, the new title is a four-player co-op game that takes place in...

Gamescom 2016: Would You Kindly Watch This BioShock: The Collection Comparison?

Would You Kindly Watch This BioShock: The Collection Comparison?

Rapturous results

BioShock has, arguably, one of the greatest intros to a game ever. But it's about to get even better as part of BioShock: The Collection, the PlayStation 4 remaster of the PlayStation 3 classic. 2K Games has truncated the amazing opening, and uploaded a comparison with its new-gen version. The differences, as you may imagine, are...

Resident Evil 7 Really Is Going Full Survival Horror

Scared?

This is tense, isn't it? Capcom's released a new Resident Evil 7 trailer to coincide with Gamescom 2016, and it really ratchets up the tension. The clip takes the form of some found footage – which should be familiar to anyone who played the recent demo – and sees a woman attempting to send a message to a man named Ethan. Unfortunately...

Store Update: 16th August 2016 (North America)

16th August 2016 (North America)

Never grow up

Despite its bright visuals and cutesy main character, we can't type Grow Up without thinking of Taylor Swift's most depressing song to date. Whatever. It's the highlight of this week's North American PlayStation Store update, alongside Bound. PS4 Games: ADVENTURE CAPITALIST FREE BATTLESHIP $14.99 BOUND $19.99 DOODLE DEVIL $5.99...

16th August 2016 (Europe)

Dance the night away

Now that No Man's Sky is out, the summer lull is back until Deus Ex: Mankind Divided rolls around. There are some decent titles in this week's European PlayStation Store update, though – Bound and Grow Up being more than worthy of mention. There's the new episode of Hitman to look forward to, too. PS4 Games: Bound 16th...

The Tomorrow Children Goes to Work from 6th September

Will eventually be free-to-play

Do you remember The Tomorrow Children? Yeah, we barely do either – we played the alpha eons ago, but then it never seemed to want to come out. Fortunately, the soviet-inspired sim appears to be right around the corner, as it will begin its complicated rollout from 6th September. However, that's not the end of the...

Gamescom 2016: Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare's Zombies Mode Is the Zaniest Yet

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare's Zombies Mode Is the Zaniest Yet

Disco fever

This is thriller – or something! Call of Duty's zombies mode has been bonkers for a while now, but Infinite Warfare's newly announced Zombies in Spaceland may just be the series' zaniest co-op option yet. The eighties-inspired outing will see you donning some DayGlo and dirty dancing with the undead, as you work your way through an...
