Gamescom 2014: Dragon Age: Inquisition Looks Remarkably Pretty in These New Trailers

Dragon Age: Inquisition Looks Remarkably Pretty in These New Trailers

Nobody expects the Dragon Age: Inquisition

EA started its fairly lousy Gamescom conference this morning with a lengthy demo of incoming RPG Dragon Age: Inquisition. Some fairly juicy details were also dropped, including the news that the game features nine classes, with more than 20 specialisations, as well as over 200 weapons and spells, and all...

Pix the Cat Brings Crazy Arcade Action to PS4 and Vita

Catception

If you remember spending all of your time on your mobile phone playing Snake before the days of the App Store and smartphones, you're going to love Pastagames' upcoming Pix the Cat. Coming to the PlayStation 4 and Vita this year, you play as a blue cat named Pix, as he runs around maps, collecting chicks that follow him to rack up the...

Gamescom 2014: Hollowpoint Hits Hard and Heavy on PS4

Hollowpoint Hits Hard and Heavy on PS4

The Contra of the future

2D side-scrolling shooters are a tough genre to tackle. Sure, it's simple enough for developers to make one and call it a day, but it's easy for these games to fall into the trap of being generic and unable to stand out. What does Ruffian Games have in mind to jump over that obstacle? With its work on the Xbox 360...

Gamescom 2014: Lay Down the Law with Battlefield Hardline's First Single Player Footage

Lay Down the Law with Battlefield Hardline's First Single Player Footage

Shoot the guns

EA's conference at Gamescom today was a little dry, to the say the least. The perennially unpopular publisher closed out its show with a brand new single player trailer for Battlefield Hardline, which you can view down below. After a hairy altercation with a particularly nasty foe, our quick witted hero Nick Mendoza finds himself...

What Happened During PlayStation's Gamescom 2014 Press Conference?

We recap all of the big PS4 announcements

It’s not always easy to watch video game press conferences in their entirety. Time zone issues and prior engagements can mean that you miss out, but that’s why we’re here to ensure that you remain informed. We’ll be updating this site over the coming week with tons more information straight from...

Gamescom 2014: PlayStation Vita Largely Ignored During Sony's Show

PlayStation Vita Largely Ignored During Sony's Show

Missing in action

It’s rare for us to write a story about what wasn’t announced during a PlayStation press conference – after all, we typically have our work cut out just trying to cover what was announced. However, the PlayStation Vita’s complete lack of presence during the Japanese giant’s Gamescom 2014 media briefing today definitely...

Gamescom 2014: The PS4 Has Sold a Staggering 10 Million Units Since Launch

The PS4 Has Sold a Staggering 10 Million Units Since Launch

Greatness sells

During its Gamescom conference today, Sony revealed that the PlayStation 4 has sold a flabbergasting ten million units worldwide since its launch last year. The Japanese giant also noted that 30 million pieces of software have been purchased by consumers in that time. To be honest, we've run out of ways to express how impressive...

Gamescom 2014: Blimey, Hideo Kojima is Making a New Silent Hill Game for PS4

Blimey, Hideo Kojima is Making a New Silent Hill Game for PS4

Wait, what?

In arguably the most bizarre and brilliant headline to come out of Sony's Gamescom conference today, it has been uncovered that Hideo Kojima will be creating a new Silent Hill game for PlayStation 4. Ever the provocateur, Kojima couldn't simply announce the game during the presser, but instead had to sneakily reveal it afterwards...

Reaction: PS4's Variety Shines at Gamescom 2014, but Sony's Presser Lacked a Show Stopper

PS4's Variety Shines at Gamescom 2014, but Sony's Presser Lacked a Show Stopper

On closer reflection

Sony usually marches into Gamescom unobstructed. The platform holder has been holding press conferences in Cologne for as long as we’ve been running this website, even revealing the PlayStation 3 Slim – the redesign which would eventually reverse its flagging format’s fortunes – at the event some five years ago. In...

PS4 Exclusive WiLD Looks Wacky, Wonderful, and, Erm, Wild

Nature calls

It was recently revealed that Rayman creator Michel Ancel had opened brand new studio Wild Sheep, and at Sony's Gamescom conference today, we were finally shown what the fledgling team has been up to. Titled WiLD, the developer's first effort is a broad and ambitious PlayStation 4 exclusive that sees you controlling everything from a...

Gamescom 2014: In PS4 Exclusive DriveClub, It Pays to Drive Together

In PS4 Exclusive DriveClub, It Pays to Drive Together

Vroom vroom

DriveClub has seen its fair share of delays over the past year, but it's very likely been worth the wait, as Evolution Studios seems more confident about its drop-dead gorgeous game than ever before. With vehicles that we swear look real and slick-looking racing mechanics, we're pretty revved up to play the game for ourselves, and Sony's...

Gamescom 2014: PS4's inFAMOUS: First Light Recharges with Battle Arenas

PS4's inFAMOUS: First Light Recharges with Battle Arenas

Curdun Cay is kinda cra'y

inFAMOUS: First Light may not be attaining quite the same publicity as Sony’s other first-party titles right now, but it sounds like a seriously meaty slice of side content. In addition to a four hour single player campaign that plots the return of street savvy conduit Fetch, it will also boast Battle Arenas with a...

Gamescom 2014: Zombie Infested Survival MMO DayZ Lumbers onto the PS4

Zombie Infested Survival MMO DayZ Lumbers onto the PS4

Brainsssss

In one of the more unexpected announcements at Sony's Gamescom conference today, it was announced that popular survival MMO DayZ will be coming to the PlayStation 4. The shambling shooter sees you and your buddies dropped in the middle of a zombie apocalypse, provided with essentially no resources, and then forced to fight for survival...

Gamescom 2014: Explore the Ghostly Mysteries of The Vanishing of Ethan Carter

Explore the Ghostly Mysteries of The Vanishing of Ethan Carter

Don't disturb the dead

The Astronauts consists of an eight-person development team that originally founded People Can Fly, creators of the immature yet crazy fun shooter Bulletstorm. You'd be inclined to believe that the former studio is moving on to something similar, but you'd be wrong. The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is a vastly different project...

Gamescom 2014: RIME Still Looks Utterly Resplendent on PS4

RIME Still Looks Utterly Resplendent on PS4

New trailer is tasty

RIME raised the roof during Sony’s Gamescom press conference last year, and while it didn’t have quite the same impact on this occasion – it’s a known quantity, after all – it’s still looking ridiculously pretty on the PlayStation 4. Developed by Spanish studio Tequila Works, the release evokes memories of ICO, with...

Gamescom 2014: Nikola Tesla Supercharges PS4 Exclusive The Order: 1886

Nikola Tesla Supercharges PS4 Exclusive The Order: 1886

Playing with power

When it was first announced, Ready at Dawn promised that it would fuse real-world history with fiction in PlayStation 4 exclusive The Order: 1886, and it revealed part of how it intends to do that prior to Sony’s big Gamescom 2014 press conference earlier today – by implementing Nikola Tesla into the fiction. This famous...

Gamescom 2014: Grow to Hate Shadow of Mordor's Villains With the Help of its Newest Trailer

Grow to Hate Shadow of Mordor's Villains With the Help of its Newest Trailer

You'll pay for this

In a somewhat surprising appearance at Sony's Gamescom 2014 press conference, upcoming Tolkien tie-in Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor shed a little bit of light on its narrative and its ruthless baddies. It's another short and sweet video regarding the upcoming action title, but we reckon it does just enough to get you interested...

Gamescom 2014: Until Dawn Rises on PS4, and Its Darker Than Before

Until Dawn Rises on PS4, and Its Darker Than Before

Hayden Panettiere stars in survival horror

Well, we all knew that ex-PlayStation Move exclusive Until Dawn was coming to the PlayStation 4 – but it looks like Supermassive Games has really invested that extra time into creating some impressive character models. While the title’s re-reveal trailer definitely has the same spirit as the original,...

Bloodborne Comes Out Swinging With New PS4 Gameplay Footage

And so the nightly hunt begins

While E3 2014's cinematic trailer for From Software's next PS4 project managed to portray the atmosphere and setting for Bloodborne in all of its gothic, grotesque glory, we finally have a more in-depth look at how the game actually plays, and thankfully, it looks quite a bit better than the leak that appeared months...
