March's Free PlayStation Plus Games include Oddworld PS4, OlliOlli 2, and Valiant Hearts

Counter Spy, Sherlock Holmes, and more up for grabs

We've waited six long days for Sony to announce March's roster of PlayStation Plus freebies, so it was inevitable that the organisation would drop the lineup just as we were about to tuck into our hot dog and chips. Taking us away from our dinner this month are Oddworld: New 'N' Tasty and Valiant...

Mad Max Hits the Road on PS4 from 1st September

Road warrior

How to derail a carefully curated public relations push: set the embargo around the same time as Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain's release date leaks. Warner Bros couldn't have predicted this afternoon's circumstances, of course, but we suspect that a few folks at Swedish developer Avalanche Studios will be kicking themselves right...

Helldivers PS4, PS3, PlayStation Vita Hints and Tips for Killing Alien Scum

Just dropping in

As we wrote in our review, Helldivers is a great downloadable game. Taking the fight to aliens across a multitude of different planets, there's little more satisfying than taking chunks out of big beasties with a barrage of bullets. Sadly, not everyone can adapt to the life of a Helldiver so easily. Starting out can be tough, even...

Play Bloodborne on PS4 Before It Curdles Store Shelves at EGX Rezzed

Oodles of awesome indie games, too

Sony's brilliant PlayStation 4 exclusive action role-playing release Bloodborne will be repulsing retail in the not too distance future, but if you can't wait to lay your fingers on From Software's fearsome foray, don't worry – as it'll be on display at EGX Rezzed next week.

3D Realms' Bombshell Reboots with a Few More Clothes

Dressed to kill

3D Realms' forthcoming isometric shooter Bombshell still looks like the kind of game that 90s smackheads would swoon over – but at least protagonist Shelly Harrison has learned that naturism and an occupation as a bomb disposal specialist don't necessarily go hand-in-hand. Packing a less pronounced Ellie Goulding-esque haircut...

Could the Developer Behind the Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Games Be Making an Open World RPG?

CyberConnect2 currently recruiting

CyberConnect2 is one of those developers that's hardly put a foot wrong in recent years. Mostly known for its consistently solid Naruto: Ultimate Ninja series, the studio also created the equally solid Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle, and the bombastic original property, Asura's Wrath. It's a team with...

You Can Now Make Your Own PS4 Games for Free with Unreal Engine 4

Open the floodgates

Epic Games' game creation suite Unreal Engine was enormously successful in the previous generation, but it's found its grip on the industry loosening of late.

Bloodborne Begins the Hunt with Inviting PS4 Commercial

This game's going to cut you down

We all know that Bloodborne's going to be tougher than a reinforced ginger nut, but Sony's clearly banking on bringing in some more casual players with this TV spot. The clip includes foul beasts, a rambling narrator stuck in staccato mode, and some light rock to round things out. It's nice to see the firm actually...
