  • Guide What Time Does Destiny 2's PS4 Beta Begin?

    And how do you get in the Destiny 2 beta?

    Destiny 2 is shaping up to be the biggest game of the year (sorry Call of Duty: WWII and Star Wars: Battlefront 2) and Bungie wants to give you an early taste of the title via its PlayStation 4 beta. But what time does the Destiny 2 beta begin? And how do you get in the Destiny 2 PS4 beta? Worry not, eager...

  • News They're Using Awful Final Fantasy XIII Characters to Sell Cars Now

    Snow joke

    A number of Final Fantasy characters have tried their hand at advertising in the past. Most notably, Final Fantasy XIII's Lightning, in all of her immensely boring glory, was once brought in to help sell designer handbags. And now, equally dreadful Final Fantasy XIII hero Snow is busy shifting Nissan cars in a brand new clip. It's all a...

  • News June 2017 NPD: PS4 Enjoys Best June Since Launch

    Tekken 7 tops, Crash Bandicoot hits

    The PlayStation 4 may be knee-deep into its fourth year, but it’s showing no signs of slowing – in fact, it’s actually performing better than in previous years. Sony’s console topped the United States hardware charts for a second successive month, registering its strongest June on record since release...

  • News Ghost Recon: Wildlands Goes Rogue with a Player-Versus-Player Open Beta

    Ghost War drops for free later this year

    Ubisoft said that it would be bringing player-versus-player modes to Ghost Recon: Wildlands ages ago, and now the publisher finally looks ready to deliver on its promise. The open world co-op stealth-shooter remains the best-selling release of 2017 thus far, so the ongoing support is hardly surprising. That...

    Review Cars 3: Driven to Win

    Rocky road

    Pixar’s Cars movies are widely regarded as some of their weaker works, but they probably have the most straightforward path to gamification. Cars 3: Driven to Win is a simple arcade racer, featuring characters and locations from the films, and it’s almost exactly what you’d expect. However, the amount of variety and fun on offer...

  • Hands On The Happy Dungeons Open Beta Is Worth a Look on PS4

    A quick recommendation

    Happy Dungeons is a cutesy little free-to-play title that's coming to PlayStation 4 this September. It's an action role-playing game with loot drops, character classes, quests, co-op for up to four players, and a daft story. It's also available to download now on Sony's console as an open beta -- and we'd recommend giving...

  • News Shock! Spider-Man Swings into Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite

    Nemesis, Frank West, and Haggar join the roster

    Spider-Man will be a playable character in Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite. Who saw that coming, then? The web slinger was revealed to be part of the crossover brawler’s roster during a Marvel panel at Comic-Con 2017 earlier today. He’ll be joined by Haggar (Final Fight), Nemesis (Resident Evil), and...

  • News Pyre Runs in Native 4K on PS4 Pro, Packs a Platinum Trophy

    Launch trailer released

    Hotly anticipated PlayStation 4 party-based role-playing game Pyre will run in native 4K on the PlayStation 4 Pro, developer Supergiant Games has announced. The gorgeous fantasy foray – which mixes RPG systems with an almost sports-inspired battle system – will also run at a full 60 frames-per-second, regardless of which...

  • News Call of Duty: WWII's Zombie Mode Scores Star-Studded Cast

    Tennant! Kier! Rhames! Yung! More!

    Activision continues to break the bank on Call of Duty’s co-op mode, as WWII’s unimaginatively named Nazi Zombies will star David Tennant (Doctor Who), Elodie Yung (Daredevil), Katheryn Winnick (Vikings), Udo Kier (Melancholia), and Ving Rhames (Dawn of the Dead). All of the aforementioned stars will have their...

  • Reminder Destiny 2's Beta Is Open to Everyone Starting Today

    Eyes up, Guardian

    Destiny 2's beta enters its open phase today on PlayStation 4, in case you forgot. The beta itself is relatively small in terms of content -- unless you really like competitive multiplayer -- but it's still well worth a download if you're interested in or at least curious about Bungie's next big hit. The beta weighs in at around...

  • Poll Are You Playing the Destiny 2 Beta This Weekend?

    Cabals deep

    Guardians rejoice: the Destiny 2 open beta is finally here. Or at least, it will be in a few hours depending on when you're reading this article. The beta's been in early access for around three days now and the reception has been a little bit mixed. The usual "Destiny 1.5" criticisms are floating around, and people reckon power...

  • Video Watch Us Kick Cabal Arse in the Destiny 2 Beta

    Back in the saddle

    Wondering what the Destiny 2 beta is all about? Not sure if you should go and download 15GB of data to your PlayStation 4 just to check it out? Then you're in luck, as regular Push Square stream bloke Alex Stinton played through a good chunk of it so that you don't have to. Watch as he takes on the Cabal in the game's opening...

  • Rumour No Man's Sky May Finally Be Getting Multiplayer

    Aim for the stars

    Now this is a pretty juicy rumour - especially if you're a fan of No Man's Sky. Cast your mind back to the time just after the game launched, and you'll probably remember all that outrage regarding the title's lack of multiplayer. Players tried to meet up with each other within the virtual universe, but it turned out that the...

    Review Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age

    Absolute bangaa

    Final Fantasy XII has aged very well indeed – and that's not something you can say about a lot of role-playing games that launched over ten years ago. Following on from the admirable remastered collection that is Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster, Square Enix has seen fit to rework one of the most divisive mainline Final Fantasy...

    Review Black The Fall

    Black magic

    The magic of an independent game is that one can come from pretty much nowhere and completely blow you away. Black The Fall, the debut game from developer Sand Sailor Studio that was successfully funded via Kickstarter back in 2014, is a perfect example of that. Pitched as a 2D puzzle platforming game, the title is actually so much more...

  • News Expect Another Big No Man's Sky Update to Drop Next Month

    Ever expanding universe

    No Man's Sky may have disappointed many a player, but developer Hello Games is still working hard to improve its intergalactic title.

As you'd expect, the next additional saga will include new locations, enemies, equipment, and Trophies. Defiant Honor will see protagonist William take...

    Review That's You

    Oh you

    One of the more surprising parts of Sony’s E3 2017 pre-show this year was the unveiling of That’s You via a gameplay trailer featuring everybody’s favourite President of Sony Worldwide Studios, Shuhei Yoshida.

    Crate out of ten

    Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is billed as a blast from the past when you boot it up, and it's not playing around.

    Review Arizona Sunshine

    Fred the dead

    There’s no question that if Arizona Sunshine controlled as well as the fantastic Farpoint, it’d be easy to recommend. Much like Impulse Gear’s sci-fi shooter, this sun-baked romp through post-apocalyptic America feels decidedly old-school – but the novelty of virtual reality more than makes up for its rudimentary encounters...
