Rumour: Could Call of Duty: World at War II Be Treyarch's Next Title?

Could Call of Duty: World at War II Be Treyarch's Next Title?

Suit up, soldier

The rumour mill's in overdrive right now, but our bullturd detector reckons that this is just about on the right side of plausible – until proven otherwise, anyway. Earlier in the week, an image appeared on the web hinting that Call of Duty: World at War II would be revealed on 4th May. While it looked professional enough, it's...

Don't Grenade Yourself to Progress in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

The ban hammer awaits

We're quite prone to the odd misplaced grenade in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, but apparently there are worse butter fingers than us. Unfortunately, those with slippy digits are using this 'ailment' to their advantage, committing suicide over and over again in order to get ranked with lower level players. The idea is that...

Tony Hawk Will Pop Shove-It on PS4 This Year

Still a Superman

Tony Hawk may have bailed during much of the PlayStation 3 era, but he's back on his board and pimping a brand new game for the PlayStation 4.

UK Sales Charts: A Familiar Top Five Finishes 2014

Over and out

There are absolutely no upsets in the UK Sales Charts this week, as the top five consists of five very familiar franchises. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare held onto the number one spot, but was battled all of the way by Grand Theft Auto V.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare PS4, PS3 Enlists for EU Christmas Sale

Scatter shot

Let’s face it: Sony’s big 12 Deals of Christmas initiative has been about as tasty as a plate full of Brussels sprouts. There have been some reasonable offers here and there, but nothing that’s going to set your trousers on fire – and this week is similar, even if there is a loophole that you may not actually be aware of...

Review: Destiny: The Dark Below (PlayStation 4)

Destiny: The Dark Below (PlayStation 4)

We can see the bottom

It seems like you can't go a single day without seeing someone criticise Destiny. Bungie's shooter has been nothing if not divisive, but for all its flaws, many still enjoy scouring the same missions and maps in the hopes of buffing up their Guardian. If you're one of these players, then it goes without saying that this...

Destiny's Progression System Is Destroying the Game from the Inside

Robert Ramsey can't take the grind any longer

Despite launching only about three months ago, it feels like we've been discussing Destiny for an eternity. Bungie's sci-fi shooter divided opinion from the word go, and, whether it's because of heightened expectations or general trust in a proven developer, we're still ranting and raving about what's...

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Sales Continue Series Decline

Going down

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is arguably the best entry in the series since the original Black Ops, but not even a string of glowing reviews have managed to prevent the property from declining for the third year in a row. While the series is still a best-seller, its numbers seemingly peaked with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 – and...

Don't Have Destiny's First Expansion? Then You're Locked Out of Some Existing Content

Isn't that nice

There isn't much that gets this usually calm and collected associate editor riled up, but Bungie's latest move with Destiny's The Dark Below expansion pack – which released earlier today – has everyone in the Push Square office clambering for safety from this author's outrage. Indeed, upon booting up the sci-fi shooter just...

This Trailer Shines a Light On Destiny's PlayStation Exclusive Content in The Dark Below

Argh it burns

Since its release, Destiny has divided opinions, but the fact of the matter is that a massive amount of players are still grinding through Strikes and Raids in order to snag that legendary loot, and those same users were probably happy to see Bungie's shooter make an appearance at Sony's PlayStation Experience event earlier today...

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is the best entry in Activision’s first-person franchise for some time, but players have reported some multiplayer connectivity mishaps since its launch last week.
