Attack on Titan Will Eat You Alive on PS4, PS3, and Vita in 2016

Mmmm, crunchy

Well, it's happening: Attack on Titan is coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita in 2016, Koei Tecmo has confirmed. There are currently no details on how the game plays, but we do know that it's being developed by Omega Force - the studio behind the Warriors games. It's not like it's got much else going on, right? In any...

Gamescom 2015: FIFA 16 Is All About the Banter

FIFA 16 Is All About the Banter

Different style of Pele

Sports games: the bane of most EA press conferences. FIFA 16 has always looked out of place at E3 – everyone remembers the infamous Pele interview – but in Cologne it was at home, showing off some new features and dispelling all of the "just another roster update" rumours. The new headline feature is FUT Draft, shown...

Gamescom 2015: Pre-Order Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 to Get Your Grass Effect On

Pre-Order Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 to Get Your Grass Effect On

Crazy Dave is BioWare's biggest fan

It's not easy to get people to pay attention to Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 – after all, the release looks pretty weedy on stage next to Mirror's Edge Catalyst and Star Wars: Battlefront. That said, EA has attempted to pique our interest by announcing some Mass Effect themed content – aptly renamed,...

Unravel Three Minutes of EA's Cute PS4 Puzzle Platformer

Spin a Yarny

Unravel, the upcoming puzzle platformer from Swedish studio Coldwood, continues to look unbearably adorable. A brand new demo shown during EA's big Gamescom 2015 presser showed protagonist Yarny attempting to navigate a borderline photorealistic beach environment. The rising tide makes things difficult for our fabric friend, but by...

Gamescom 2015: Metal Gear Solid V's New Gameplay Trailer Is Bloody Good

Metal Gear Solid V's New Gameplay Trailer Is Bloody Good

Heaven or Hell

We'd be lying if we said that the Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain hype wasn't pumping through our veins right now. With the game releasing in just under a month, it's perhaps time to jump aboard the train and ride it all the way to the station - a station probably covered in blood and the terrors of war. Needless to say, the...

Run Away with Fresh Mirror's Edge Catalyst PS4 Footage

Faith no more

Mirror's Edge Catalyst was treated to a little more attention during EA's big Gamescom 2015 press conference this morning than it got at E3 2015, with a full gameplay demo showing various aspects from the February free running foray. In it, we saw protagonist Faith infiltrate a skyscraper, irritate an Andrew Wilson look-a-like, and leg...

Gamescom 2015: Star Wars: Battlefront Brings the Dogfight of Your Dreams to PS4

Star Wars: Battlefront Brings the Dogfight of Your Dreams to PS4

Flyin' high

As teased earlier in the week, EA has announced Star Wars: Battlefront's flashy Fighter Squadron mode – a dogfighting option which will see you piloting iconic aircrafts such as X-Wings, TIE-Fighters, and, amazingly, the Millennium Falcon online. It's worth stressing that these aren't space battles – they'll take place above the...

Some Massive Gameplay Changes Are Coming to Destiny

Bungie's ditching light levels

Listen up, Guardians, because this is big news. As we're sure you're all aware by now, Destiny's third and biggest expansion, The Taken King, launches next month. Its arrival takes the level cap to 40, which no doubt has some of you excited, but things perhaps aren't as they seem. According to Game Informer, the...

Watch EA's Gamescom 2015 Press Conference Right Here

Time for take off

And so our attention turns to EA, the only major publisher hosting a proper press conference at this year's Gamescom. Set to begin at 10:00AM local time, the publisher's promising to bring plenty of Star Wars: Battlefront and Mirror's Edge Catalyst to Germany this year – and we can only dream that Mass Effect: Andromeda will join...

You've All Spent Far Too Much Time Playing Destiny, Some Would Argue

Activision releases crazy stats

2 billion hours. 2 billion hours. That's how long you lot have collectively played Destiny for, according to Activision. The mega-publisher revealed the frankly shocking figure along with its most recent financial report, and we're still trying to wrap our heads around it. Apparently, that means that on average,...

Store Update: 4th August 2015 (North America)

4th August 2015 (North America)

Submerge yourself in the PlayStation Store

As in Europe, this week's North American PlayStation Store update is a little on the light side – although the likes of Submerged and Galak-Z should hold your attention until some of the heavier hitters arrive a little later in the month. There's also the continuation of Sony's scorching summer sale, so...

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Screens Are Oscar Mike

Ooorah

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 may have had a pretty muted lead up to release, but that won't stop it from ultimately being one of the biggest games of the year. And at Gamescom 2015 this week, Activision is attempting to inject a little extra enthusiasm for the first-person shooter – starting with a brand new batch of single player and...

News: Destiny Says Goodbye Dinklebot as Nolan North Replaces Game of Thrones Actor

Destiny Says Goodbye Dinklebot as Nolan North Replaces Game of Thrones Actor

At least he won't be as crap crap crap

With such memorable lines as "who's she talking to?" and "where's his Ghost?" all delivered in the most monotone way imaginable, Destiny's Ghost companion, voiced by Game of Thrones actor Peter Dinklage, somehow didn't make a good enough impression to feature in the shooter's upcoming expansion, The Taken...

Gamescom 2015: Cities: Skylines Constructing a Path to Consoles

Cities: Skylines Constructing a Path to Consoles

Sim city

This one stings: critically acclaimed city building simulation Cities: Skylines will make its console debut on the Xbox One. Microsoft gleefully made the announcement during its Gamescom 2015 press conference earlier today. Of course, every man made cloud has a silver lining, and the wording of the reveal leads us to believe that a...

Gamescom 2015: New Just Cause 3 Gameplay Packs as Many Explosions as Possible

New Just Cause 3 Gameplay Packs as Many Explosions as Possible

Boom town

Oh Rico, when will your lust for fiery explosions ever be satisfied? We're not sure if that question has an answer, but Just Cause 3's protagonist doesn't seem to be giving up on a life of chaos any time soon. The sandbox title's newest trailer is more of the same, but we doubt anyone's really complaining. The carnage on display looks...

Gamescom 2015: Dark Souls 3 Looks Deadly in Its First Slice of Gameplay

Dark Souls 3 Looks Deadly in Its First Slice of Gameplay

Top goth

Dark Souls fans will already know what to expect from Dark Souls 3, and as such, the action role-playing game's new trailer is probably exactly as you'd imagine it to be. Featuring plenty of gothic imagery and big bloody monsters, it's 100 per cent From Software. It's the gameplay that's the real draw of this clip, though, even if it...

Gamescom 2015: Rise of the Tomb Raider Goes Gung-Ho in Gameplay Trailer

Rise of the Tomb Raider Goes Gung-Ho in Gameplay Trailer

Killer Croft

Crystal Dynamics looked to Uncharted for inspiration for its Tomb Raider reboot, and it looks like the developer's used Naughty Dog as a guide again. This time the studio's latest takes more than a few cues from The Last of Us, as we see protagonist Lara Croft sneaking through an enemy base Rambo-style, slitting lots of throats. The...

Guide: What Time Are the EA, Final Fantasy XV, and Call of Duty Gamescom 2015 Streams?

What Time Are the EA, Final Fantasy XV, and Call of Duty Gamescom 2015 Streams?

Live and kicking

Over the years, we've gotten used to Gamescom being one of the biggest weeks in the gaming calendar for PlayStation. That's not entirely true in 2015, though, as Sony has opted to forgo its annual press conference at the German show in favour of Paris Games Week a little later in the year. The decision seemed sound at the time,...

Store Update: 4th August 2015 (Europe)

4th August 2015 (Europe)

The calm before the storm

Barring a few downloadable titles, it's slim pickings this week on the European PlayStation Store. Galak-Z is the headline PlayStation 4 act, while Submerged also sloshes onto Sony's latest console, but other than that, there really isn't much to write home about. In fact, this is probably one of the smallest updates that...
