Eight Things You Need to Know About Star Wars: Battlefront on PS4

Hoth stuff

EA's certainly taken its sweet time properly unveiling Star Wars: Battlefront on the PlayStation 4. Originally announced all the way back at E3 2013, Swedish developer DICE has been quietly beavering away on the long awaited sci-fi reboot ever since. However, as part of the Star Wars Celebration fan event in Anaheim earlier today,

Star Wars: Battlefront Force Chokes Single Player Campaign

Not good for those playing (Han) Solo

We thought that it sounded too good to be true: Star Wars: Battlefront will not have a traditional single player campaign. The hotly anticipated sci-fi shooter will forgo a classic solo outing, instead opting for a series of short missions which can be played alone or with friends in online and local co-op. "I...

Ultra Street Fighter IV Gets a Release Date on PS4, Certainly Sounds Like an Ultimate Package

PS4 re-release has no input lag

Ultra Street Fighter IV has been dealt a confirmed release date on PlayStation 4, and the good news is that it's not very far away. The brawler will smash up Sony's newest console on the 26th May in both Europe and North America. The next-gen re-release will set you back $24.99, which we assume will equate to...

LA Cops Styles Its Afro on PS4 Next Week

Groovy

Team 17 is on a bit of a PlayStation 4 binge right now, as it's announced that LA Cops will be cuffing itself to Sony's next-gen machine starting next week. The afro-adorning isometric shooter can perhaps be best compared to Hotline Miami, as you tactically infiltrate criminal settlements in your shades and proceed to, ahem, take out the...

Don't Worry, Alienation on PS4 Looks All Kinds of Rad

Bring the beat back

This is why you should never doubt Finnish developer Housemarque's ability to deliver: Alienation looks freakin' rad. When the studio revealed a few details regarding its isometric shooter earlier in the week, we lamented the lack of footage, as everything that it was describing sounded like Helldivers to us. It turns out that...

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Will Take Up a Rather Hefty Chunk of Your PS4 Hard Drive

A big, bloody chunk

We hope that you aren't running out of PlayStation 4 hard drive space, because chances are that you'll soon have to decide on what poor old game gets deleted if you're planning on nabbing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. it's not quite the biggest that we've seen, but the action role-playing game will take up a hefty 35GB if you plan...

ITV and Channel 4 Streaming to UK PS4s

'Appy now?

Does anyone even watch television "live" anymore? Fair enough, sporting events are best enjoyed as they happen, but we can't remember the last time that we sat down at 19:00PM on the dot to catch the latest episode of Emmerdale – it's all about on-demand these days. It's frustrating, then, that the PlayStation 4 has been missing the...

Bad News for Us Writers as Dragon Quest Heroes Gets a Massive Western Subtitle

Do we have to

Gosh darn it Square Enix, you nearly had it all. Dragon Quest Heroes by itself was a quick, memorable, and easy name to write a dozen times over, and now you've gone and ruined it by giving the action role-playing game a gigantic subtitle for its Western release. Sure, the Japanese version's got a big old sub as well, but did we...

Review: Omega Quintet (PlayStation 4)

Omega Quintet (PlayStation 4)

Poor first gig

It often feels like there are two contrasting ways to critique these anime-esque Japanese role-playing games. Do you rate it expecting readers to have intricate pre-existing knowledge of the tropes and experience that they're signing up for, considering that the vast majority with any potential interest will? Or do you discard this...

Mortal Kombat X Fights Its Forebears for Franchise's Fastest Selling Accolade

Toasty

In an announcement that's almost as predictable as blood spillage in a Scorpion versus Sub-Zero bout, NetherRealm's boss Ed Boon has announced that Mortal Kombat X has secured the "biggest launch" in the series' history. "Thank you everyone for making Mortal Kombat X the biggest launch in MK history," he wrote on Twitter. "You made the game...

Here's an Early Look at Star Wars: Battlefront on PS4

Wookie here

Can you hear that? It's the sound of AT-AT Walkers approaching, as Star Wars fever hits hyperdrive. Hot on the heels of today's new movie trailer – intriguing but a teensy bit cheesy, we thought – EA Games has revealed the first assets from the forthcoming PlayStation 4 game, Star Wars: Battlefront. It's also inadvertently unveiled...

Housemarque's Alienation Will Test Your Teamwork

Out of this world

It's hard not to be hyped for a Housemarque title – but we wished that the Finnish outfit had provided some new footage alongside its latest Alienation progress report, as everything that it's describing screams Helldivers to us. That's not a bad thing – we loved Arrowhead's isometric shooter – but we would like to know...
