ADR1FT Drags Out the Obligatory Clair de Lune Trailer

A space odyssey

It's a lovely piece of music, but Clair de Lune doesn't half get overused in this industry. ADR1FT, the space-faring sim by threeonezero, is the latest to use the heart-breaking piece, as it splices bits of gameplay with press quotes. This is for the Oculus Rift release, but it's worth remembering that the title – with, we assume,...

Adr1ft Lost in Space Until 2016

Spaced out

Remember intriguing space sim, Adr1ft? Well, you may want to forget about it for a few months.

Payday 2: Crimewave Edition (PS4)

The heist life

As a law abiding citizen, committing robbery is probably the last thing on your mind. That said, somewhere inside your deepest thoughts – whether you'd admit it or not – you've probably pondered what it would be like to throw off the shackles of society's laws, and turn to a life crime. In Payday 2: Crimewave Edition for the...

PS4 Space Sim ADR1FT's Leaked E3 Trailer Will Give You a Panic Attack

Space jam

It's every developer's worst nightmare: you're mere days away from E3, when your flashy new trailer gets leaked. Such is the case for California-based outfit threeonezero, whose video for PlayStation 4 space sim ADR1FT is now, erm, adrift. Instead of playing coy, though, the developer has cleverly decided to simply release the video into...

Vintage Vauxhalls need not apply

Gran Turismo will find itself in good company should it ever arrive on the PlayStation 4, as acclaimed Italian outfit Kunos Simulazioni has confirmed that Assetto Corsa will be bringing its brand of exacting simulation racing to the PlayStation 4 in 2016. There's very little to say about the console port just yet,...

Overkill's The Walking Dead Shooter Lumbers onto PS4 in 2016

Possessed Payday

Despite its grisly premise, zombie franchise The Walking Dead has been the flavour of the month for many, many months now. That's a figure of speech, of course; we're hoping that no one has taken any actual culinary tips from the show's shuffling stars. At any rate, the undead hit has seen all manner of video game adaptations –...

A new chapter

Ask anyone who has played Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons and they'll tell you that it's a fascinating adventure that culminates with an emotional punch to the gut. Future sequels were hardly implied by this standalone indie title, however, but developer Starbreeze Studios has announced that it has handed the property over to publisher...

On the rob

Re-releases are all the rage right now, but this one is so low-profile that we'd forgotten it was even happening in the first place. PSU reports that Best Buy has slapped a 21st April release date on Payday 2: Crimewave Edition, the PlayStation 4 update of Overkill Software's acclaimed robbery simulator. That's a Tuesday so could be...

Nuts

505 Games’ morbidly graphic long-range shooter Sniper Elite III has enjoyed a second week at the top of the UK sales charts, putting a bullet in fellow next-gen rival Watch Dogs.

Sniper Elite III (PlayStation 4)

Boom headshot

It’s ironic that so soon after the release of Valiant Hearts: The Great War, another title with a very different outlook on war has stealthily marched onto the PlayStation 4. In Sniper Elite III, rather than making you think about the needless loss of life, this latest instalment in the distance shooter series asks that you revel in...
