Review: BioShock: The Collection (PS4)

BioShock: The Collection (PS4)

As above, so below

When it was released in 2007, BioShock was hailed as a masterpiece by the gaming press and remains to this day a high watermark for the story-driven shooter. A thematic follow up to cult PC game System Shock 2 with a story that explored the objectivist philosophies of Ayn Rand set in a world modelled after the bleak dystopia of...

Mafia III Takes Aim at Free DLC and Three Premium Expansions

Lock and load

It looks like developer Hangar 13 has reasonably big plans for Mafia III after it launches next month, promising free downloadable content packs along with three premium expansions. The free stuff is largely what you'd expect - costumes, weapons, and extra vehicle customisation - but the studio also makes mention of races, which...

Mafia III's Stunning Sixties Soundtrack Could Be the Best of the Open World Bunch

Rolling Stones, Beach Boys, James Brown, and more

We love a good licensed soundtrack in our games. Sometimes, a fitting selection of tunes can really solidify the feel of a release - the inclusion of Stan Bush's The Touch in Saints Row IV was inspired, for example - and with Mafia III, we've been hoping and praying for a stellar sixties soundtrack...

Gamescom 2016: Would You Kindly Watch This BioShock: The Collection Comparison?

Would You Kindly Watch This BioShock: The Collection Comparison?

Rapturous results

BioShock has, arguably, one of the greatest intros to a game ever. But it's about to get even better as part of BioShock: The Collection, the PlayStation 4 remaster of the PlayStation 3 classic. 2K Games has truncated the amazing opening, and uploaded a comparison with its new-gen version. The differences, as you may imagine, are...

Mafia III's Main Character Is a Man on a Mission

Mob justice

From what we've seen of Mafia III so far, we're reasonably excited for the upcoming open world mob-'em-up, and while we have some reservations when it comes to the sequel's rather standard looking gameplay, we reckon that the setting and characters seem pretty interesting. Speaking of which, protagonist and Vietnam veteran Lincoln...

Evolve Will Be Playable for Free on PS4 Soon

Admits original release caused a "s***storm"

As expected, Evolve really is going free-to-play – but not on the PlayStation 4 just yet. While PC players will be able to download the complimentary client's beta starting today, fans of Sony's system will need to wait until Turtle Rock's got everything in order. Once it's satisfied with the PC...

Is PS4 Shooter Evolve About to Go Free to Play?

Level up

Remember Evolve? It was that game by the ex-Left 4 Dead devs that won a slew of awards prior to release, and then was swiftly ignored by gamers and the media once it actually launched. Well, it looks like it's about to make a comeback – or at least try to, we suppose. Turtle Rock, the studio behind the shooter, has put a countdown on...

All three games, all DLC in one package

It's about bloody time, eh? After months upon months of knowing fine well that it was coming, 2K Games has finally confirmed that BioShock: The Collection is bubbling up onto PlayStation 4. As expected, it'll include all three last-gen BioShock titles - BioShock, BioShock 2, and BioShock Infinite - along...

Mafia III Looks and Sounds the Part on PS4

The biz

We feel a little bit sorry for Mafia III. While competing titles are popping up in publisher or platform holder press conferences, Lincoln Clay and his cronies have been left to fend for themselves – earning only a spot during IGN's live coverage. Still, this 22 minute gameplay demo which debuted last night is surprisingly strong – it...

Mafia III's $150 PS4 Collector's Edition Includes Vinyl Records, Drinks Coasters

An offer you can't refuse?

You may need to stage your own racket to be able to afford Mafia III's collector's edition, but it'll be worth the effort without doubt. 2K Games has announced the game's obligatory limited edition set, which will launch on 7th October worldwide. At an eye-watering $149.99, the package is pricey – but it does come with...

Review: Battleborn (PS4)

Battleborn (PS4)

Genre blended meta growth

Back in 2014, Gearbox Software head honcho Randy Pitchford incomprehensibly described Battleborn as an "FPS; hobby-grade co-op campaign; genre-blended, multi-mode competitive e-sports; meta-growth, choice epic Battleborn Heroes". While no one could quite decipher just what he was going on about, it was safe to assume that...
