The Next Assassin's Creed on PS4 Will Sport a Brother and Sister Protagonist Combo

Dual wielding

After all of the furore over Ubisoft's statements regarding female characters in Assassin's Creed Unity, it may appear as though the company is trying to smooth things over with Assassin's Creed Victory – otherwise known as Assassin's Creed Syndicate – if the rumours are to be believed. According to Kotaku, sources have claimed...

Castlevania's Koji Igarashi Returns with Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night on PS4

Join the army of the night

There have been no shortage of Castlevania-inspired works on PlayStation of late, but while the likes of Guacamelee and Axiom Verge owe part of their success to Symphony of the Night director Koji Igarashi, the veteran developer has been out of the spotlight for some time. It was only a matter of time, however, before...

On This Day 20 Years Ago, Sony Dropped the Mic at the First Ever E3

A sign of things to come

Sony's no stranger to dropping the microphone at E3 conventions. For many of you, ex-SCEA president Jack Tretton's used games beatdown will be fresh in the memory – but the affable executive was merely reading from a PlayStation playbook that was written by his predecessors many years prior.

PlayStation Exclusive Persona 5's Nabbed a Release Window, and It's Looking Promising

Pray for Europe

It's arguably not a point that's being made as much as it should be, but Persona 5 is a big deal for PlayStation. The Japanese role-playing game series is on the very cusp of becoming a smash hit, with Persona 4 being a critical and commercial success not just in Japan, but over here in the West, too. If you still haven't seen...

CD Projekt Red Has Been Making Late Tweaks to The Witcher 3's Performance on PS4

Best make it quick

We already know that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt appears to run well on the PlayStation 4, but developer CD Projekt Red has recently been making technical tweaks to the open world role-playing game, improving its performance further.

Feature: Five Ways Assassin's Creed Victory Can Stop the Series' Rot

Five Ways Assassin's Creed Victory Can Stop the Series' Rot

The syndicate

It's rare for a renowned series such as Assassin's Creed to get tagged with middling review scores, but we slammed the disappointing Assassin's Creed Unity when it deployed last year. While there was a reasonable experience buried at the release's beating heart, the Parisian escapade also had a laundry list of flaws – the title's...

Over 1 Million Players Are on the Trail of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

The hunt is on

With the open world adventure releasing in just over a week's time, that number's bound to be going up, too. Pre-ordering games has been drifting in and out of fashion for a while now, and while many would...

Final Fantasy X|X-2 PS4, The Last of Us: Left Behind, Double Dragon

Yuna you want it

It's a bit of a filler week here on Planet PlayStation, as a storm labelled The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt lurks on the horizon. There's no doubt that CD Projekt RED's hotly anticipated role-playing release is the title that's on everyone's lips, and so proceedings are looking a little light this time out. To be fair, though, there's no...

Playable Trish Is Rocking Some Impressive Firepower in Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition

Boom boom

Trish is a Devil May Cry mainstay, but she was only playable in the rather dour Devil May Cry 2.

Fallout 4 to Make Its PS4 Premiere at E3 2015

It's happening

With Bethesda holding its own E3 press conference this year, that can surely only mean one thing, right? The Internet's been riddled with rumours and speculation regarding Fallout 4 for what feels like an eternity, but we've heard nothing concrete for years – until now. Luis Nieves is a freelance 3D artist, and according to his...

LEGO Dimensions' Toy Sets Are More Tempting Than the Game

A price to pay

The world really doesn't need another toys-to-life title, but we have to admit that these LEGO Dimensions add-ons are pretty darn tempting.

Racing ahead

Crowd funded racing game Project CARS has pulled ahead of the pack, scoring the first simulation podium position since GRID 2 all the way back in 2013.

Dishonored: Definitive Edition Sneaks Up on PS4

Arkane magic

Arkane Studios' stealth-'em-up Dishonored was an outstanding game, but we could probably do without a PlayStation 4 remaster. Still, we suppose that Bethesda was never going to be able to resist the re-release money sitting on the table, and so a Brazilian ratings board has seemingly leaked an updated edition of the Dunwall...
