    Review SUPERHOT

    You've got red dudes on you

    SUPERHOT is the most innovative shooter we’ve played in years. We’re not saying that solely because the game tells us to – it’s true. This time bending tour-de-force only moves when you do, creating puzzle-like scenarios where you need to weave through fire-power and lob objects in order to overcome seemingly...

  • News Monster Hunter: World Takes Animal Cruelty to a New Level

    Capcom drops weapons-based trailer

    Monster Hunter: World will provide you with numerous ways to slaughter your prey in return for new clothing and equipment.

    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...

  • 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...

    Review Super Cloudbuilt

    Destination heaven

    Parkour as a mechanic has become synonymous with the first-person shooter genre as of late. The likes of Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare and the Titanfall series brought the art of wall running to the masses, but rarely does a game outside of the FPS family incorporate free running to the point where it’s the way to get about...

  • 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...

  • 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 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...

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

    Nemesis, Frank West, and Haggar join the roster

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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

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

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...

    Review Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles

    Not a cloud in the sky

    Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles is quite possibly the most pleasant game on PlayStation 4. Constructed by the tiny indie developer that is Prideful Sloth, it's a rather ambitious little title that fuses open world exploration with lite crafting and farming elements. It takes clear inspiration from a number of different...

    When Princess Cecille's father unexpectedly passes away, control of the embattled kingdom of Fenumia is passed over to her.

  • News Dragon Quest XI's Gorgeous Opening Cinematic Sets Up a Charming Story

    A hero reborn

    We've heard the 'chosen hero' storyline a million times before, but Dragon Quest's seemingly infinite charm allows it to embrace cliches quite unlike any other series. Dragon Quest XI: In Search of Departed Time appears to be no different, as the title's lovingly crafted opening cinematic shows the game's protagonist as a...

  • News UK Sales Charts: Final Fantasy XII Heralds the Zodiac Age

    Square Enix remaster scales summit

Sane Trilogy, Overwatch, and Grand Theft Auto V. Elsewhere, big sales on sites like
