E3 2016: We Came So Close to Getting an Egyptian God of War

We Came So Close to Getting an Egyptian God of War

Oh, Mummy

God of War is back, and it's looking better than we ever could have imagined. Kratos has returned, but this time he's got a new set of Gods to deal with – all from Norse legend. "We are parsing it as the time in which the Vikings spoke of their Gods walking the Earth," creative director Cory Barlog told a panel at E3 2016, as reported...

Suggests that PS4K may release very soon after reveal

The Witcher 3 PS4 Patch 1.22 Attempts to Fix Almost Every Remaining Bug

One more time

CD Projekt Red has released the patch notes for what could be The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's final game update.

E3 2016: Gravity Rush 2 Looks Like the Best PS4 Game That Sony Ain't Talking About

Gravity Rush 2 Looks Like the Best PS4 Game That Sony Ain't Talking About

Meow

One area we always criticise with Sony is the fact that it doesn't always put its best foot forward. Gravity Rush 2 legitimately looks sensational, and yet it's not doing a great job of getting the title in front of console owners. Fortunately, IGN invited series creator Keiichiro Toyama to its E3 2016 live show, where it's shown a huge slice...

E3 2016: Sony Will Not Bifurcate the Market with PS4K

Sony Will Not Bifurcate the Market with PS4K

Not about creating haves and have-nots

Sony may not have shown the PlayStation 4K at E3 2016 this week, but its messaging has been razor sharp: the iterative console represents a step-forward for gamers looking for the best possible performance, but no one will get left behind. It's an option – and it will be sold concurrently alongside the...

E3 2016: Spiritual Castlevania Successor Bloodstained's Shaping Up

Spiritual Castlevania Successor Bloodstained's Shaping Up

Alucard would be proud

Kickstarter's proved something of a poisoned chalice for Mighty No. 9 backers, but there's hope that Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night will come together quicker and better than its peer. It's already looking alright, with a PC build on the E3 2016 show floor this week. The exploration looks suitably Metroidvania-esque as...

E3 2016: God of War PS4's Set After God of War III

God of War PS4's Set After God of War III

Not a total reboot, then

One question we had following God of War's amazing demo during Sony's E3 2016 press conference this week is whether it's a continuation of the events that have taken place in previous games – or if it's just a complete reboot, with Kratos pulled into a different mythology. According to creative director Cory Barlog,...

E3 2016: Dragon Ball XenoVerse 2 Will Run at 60 Frames Per Second on PS4

Dragon Ball XenoVerse 2 Will Run at 60 Frames Per Second on PS4

Now we're talking

We've seen this question asked countless times by Dragon Ball fans across the web, and we've finally got an answer. As previously reported, Dragon Ball XenoVerse 2 won't be coming to PlayStation 3, meaning that its development won't be hampered by last-gen hardware. With that in mind, the word from E3 2016 is that Bandai Namco...

What Was That Death Stranding Trailer About?

Honestly? No idea

Death Stranding, the new game from Hideo Kojima, looked freakin' rad, didn't it? But, er, what the f**k was going on? That's exactly what the Internet's been trying to decipher for the past 24 hours – and it hasn't come up with any solutions yet. There are theories out there, though, which are fun to chat about, we suppose...

E3 2016: Final Fantasy XV Has an Optional Turn Based Battle Mode

Final Fantasy XV Has an Optional Turn Based Battle Mode

Wait right there

We feel like we've heard about this before, but now that we've seen it in action, it seems to be far more substantial than we had previously given it credit for. During a presentation of Final Fantasy XV at E3 2016, director Hajime Tabata put the title's optional 'Wait' mode through its paces, and it honestly looks like it could...
