Join the Mile High Club with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered Trailer

Use Soap

It's comfortably the greatest Call of Duty campaign ever made, and now you have the opportunity to re-experience Modern Warfare remastered for the PlayStation 4. To build hype, Activision has released an all-new trailer for what is effectively a jumped-up Infinite Warfare pre-order bonus. Looks good, though, doesn't it? Will you be paying...

Review: Destiny: Rise of Iron (PS4)

Destiny: Rise of Iron (PS4)

Can't teach a Young Wolf new tricks

Back near the end of last year, Destiny was in dire need of a revamp. The release had stagnated to a point where many players had simply stopped coming back to Bungie's sci-fi creation, with the game's first two expansions – The Dark Below and House of Wolves – doing little to reinvigorate the title or fix its...

Rumour: Destiny 2 Shooting For a Fresh Audience, Will Be a Totally New Game

Destiny 2 Shooting For a Fresh Audience, Will Be a Totally New Game

Say goodbye to your exotics

Looking at Destiny from the perspective of a big publisher like Activision and an ambitious studio like Bungie, Destiny 2's inevitable fate is perhaps easy to determine. If the franchise is to expand and thrive, it can't just keep relying on yearly expansions and, if you'll pardon the pun, sticking to its guns. With...

A fictitious prize to whoever cites both references in that sub header! Anyway, we've got another bumper episode for you this week that comes to you with improved microphone quality on my end, for once. Huzzah!

Poll: What Do You Think of Destiny: Rise of Iron?

What Do You Think of Destiny: Rise of Iron?

Is it hot stuff?

Ah, trusty old Destiny - a game that's pretty much the perfect fodder for a Friday poll such as this. The shooter's latest expansion, Rise of Iron, launched earlier this week on PlayStation 4, and its brand new six-player Raid is releasing later today. Judging by the amount of buzz that the DLC has generated around the 'net, it's...

Hands On: Destiny: Rise of Iron Seems Like Another Solid Expansion

Destiny: Rise of Iron Seems Like Another Solid Expansion

Bringing the fire

We've sunk about 10 hours into Destiny: Rise of Iron, and in that time, we've completed the main set of story quests, tackled several side objectives, and jumped about ten light levels. We've perused some super cool looking armour, glanced at a few tempting exotics, killed more Splicers than we care to count, and spent minutes at...

News: Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare's PS4 Story Trailer Is Well Worth a Watch

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare's PS4 Story Trailer Is Well Worth a Watch

In space, no one can hear you scream

Hah, this Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare trailer is fantastic. The series, in the early PlayStation 3 days anyway, was always defined by its outrageous set-piece-laden single player campaigns, but it seems to have gotten away from that a little of late. Fortunately, it looks like Infinity Ward is bringing the...

Call of Duty's Backing PS4 Pro in a Big Way

Arms race

As predicted, Call of Duty will be one of the biggest brands supporting the PlayStation 4 Pro at launch – but Activision's really going above and beyond. As announced at last week's PlayStation Meeting 2016 press conference, both Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered will be compatible with the new...

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered to Get All Original 16 Maps, First Multiplayer Footage

Remaining six maps available in December

While it's probably safe to say that the upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered has far more fanfare surrounding it than Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, there has been an air of disappointment surrounding the remaster due to it only including ten of the original multiplayer maps. However, this has...

Crash Bandicoot's First PS4 Appearance Looks Awesome

Crash bash

We all collectively rolled our eyes when Crash Bandicoot was confirmed for Skylanders: Imaginators – after all, we all know how Activision treated fellow PlayStation favourite Spyro when this series started. But it looks like it's learned its lesson this time around: the Thumpin' Wumpa Island level that will appear as a timed...

Destiny: Rise of Iron PS4 Exclusive Content Includes a Quest, a Ship, and a Map

Deal?

That's not a bad looking ship, is it? Okay, so it's just a glorified loading screen, but still, it's easy on the eyes. It's also exclusive to the PlayStation 4 version of Destiny: Rise of Iron, for a time. Indeed, Bungie's revealed what the PlayStation Nation can expect from the upcoming expansion in terms of exclusive stuff. Naturally,...

Destiny: The Collection Launches Next Month on PS4, Includes Rise of Iron

All in one

It's confirmed folks: Destiny: The Collection is real and it's heading to PlayStation 4 on the 20th September - that's the same day that the game's upcoming expansion, Rise of Iron, launches. Naturally, this means that Rise of Iron will be included in the package, which will also house the base release, The Dark Below, House of Wolves,...

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare's Latest Cinematic Is 'Murica Through and Through

Eff yeah

We're not sure what to think of this. We've gone on record saying that Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare looks like a return to form for Infinity Ward, but this 'Long Live the Captain' cinematic couldn't possibly be any more cheesy. We suppose that's what the developer's going for, but yeesh – it's all a bit cringe, isn't it? Even worse,...

You Shouldn't Feel Bad for Liking Destiny

Rise of Iron looks to continue the love-hate relationship

With Rise of Iron details flooding the news yesterday, it made me stop and think about Destiny as a whole. We've all been there, I know, but I came to the conclusion that there's nothing wrong with being excited for the upcoming expansion – there's actually nothing wrong with liking...
