Call of Duty: Black Ops III Will Skip PS3

First screenshots sneak out

The ageing PlayStation 3 may have just got another nail embedded into its coffin, as it sounds like Call of Duty: Black Ops III will be skipping last-gen systems, and focusing on the latest round of hardware, such as the PlayStation 4. An early article from Mashable – which includes the handful of screenshots embedded...

Call of Duty: Black Ops III's Box Art Has Pretty Bad Posture

Gun to go

Call of Duty: Black Ops III's pack shot will pay homage to its predecessors – despite the fact that its seemingly ditching the Cold War for, er, advanced warfare. The cover – which has leaked onto Reddit ahead of the release's big weekend reveal – shows a suited soldier equipped with all kinds of technical wizardry sitting slumped in...

Call of Duty: Black Ops III Will Boast Four Player Campaign Co-op, Zombies, and More

New movement system, tailored maps, tons of upgrades

Someone in Activision's public relations department is threatening World War III right now, as Call of Duty: Black Ops III's main features have leaked. With literature shipping to stores worldwide, it's no surprise, of course – and the trailer hasn't hit YouTube just yet, so the firm's carefully...

Call of Duty: Black Ops III Blows PS4 Away from 6th November

Beta available for pre-orders

Call of Duty: Black Ops III will crash onto the PlayStation 4 from 6th November, assuming that a leaked GameSpot promotional display is accurate. The placeholder ESRB rating on the left-hand side of the case confirms that this is from the United States, so backwards dating conventions apply – yes, we thought that it...

A Heck of a Lot of People Still Like Destiny, Reef Reveal Stream Attracted Over 137,000 Concurrent Viewers

The tower that refuses to fall

For all the online hate that Destiny gets, you'd think that it'd be a somewhat unpopular game. On the contrary, and as history has so often taught us, the most popular entertainment almost always comes under the most fire, and this is true of Bungie's sci-fi shooter, too, which is still being enjoyed religiously by...

Deus Ex's Developer Is Having Fun with the New Call of Duty Trailer

Meow

Eidos Montreal may be poking fun at the new Call of Duty: Black Ops III trailer, but secretly we suspect that it'll be a teensy bit nervous this morning. Unfortunately for the firm, its Thief reboot boasted some uncanny similarities to the infinitely superior Dishonored – and now it looks like Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will be going into...

(Bionic) arms race

Well, this could be interesting. Activision's dropped a new teaser trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops III – curiously, it's popped up on a Sony YouTube account first – which outlines the sequel's premise. In it, we're introduced to a variety of biological enhancements, all of which culminate in a faux-United States official...

People Are Saying That Sony Will Promote Call of Duty: Black Ops III

Back in black?

Welcome to the latest generation of games consoles – where co-marketing deals have taken the place of the third-party exclusives that don't exist anymore. When you stop and think about it, it's pretty moronic that platform holders are fighting over the rights to advertise games, but this is big business at the moment – just look...

Explore Destiny's New Social Space in House of Wolves Right Here

Enter the Reef, for real this time

Destiny players will already know of the Reef; a location that appears on the game's map only to house a couple of story cutscenes and nothing more. The shooter's next slice of DLC, House of Wolves, will open this area up, however, and you'll have a chance to see the DLC's new social space in all of its glory later...

A brave new world

Ahead of tomorrow's livestream of the location, Bungie's released a teaser trailer that shows a quick glimpse of the Reef's social space in Destiny's second DLC, House of Wolves. As you'd expect, it's quite dark, moody, and, er, purple. It'll boast new characters, upgrades, and gear. If you're sick of seeing the Tower, you'll...

Activision Says It Won't Drive Guitar Hero into the Ground with Annualised Releases Again

Same strings, different tune

If you were around for the great Guitar Hero boom that was all the rage a good few years ago - a boom that filled multiple homes with currently dust-ridden plastic instruments - then you'll know that Activision all but killed the franchise's demand by releasing more games than most people could keep up with. With the...

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Ascends with New PS4, PS3 DLC from 30th April

The big grapple

Microsoft's period of timed exclusivity is almost over, which means that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's second expansion, Ascendance, will deploy imminently on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. Due out on 30th April, the pack includes four new maps, the Infection episode of the spin-off Exo Zombies co-op sub-saga, and a brand...

Cullen your name

Video games are quite the unpredictable bunch. Dark horses like Batman: Arkham Asylum and Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor will come out of nowhere as surprising Game of the Year contenders, while shocking letdowns such as Assassin's Creed Unity and The Order: 1886 will leave gamers pondering where their promise and potential went...

You can say what you like about Destiny, but Bungie's been quite impressive with its post-release support. The title's next big patch will soon be live, and the developer's detailed exactly what's going to be in it. In addition to being able to wear helmets in the Tower and the ability to tweak colour blind and audio settings,...

That Terrible Teaser Trailer? That Is Guitar Hero Live

Launching on PS4, PS3 this year

Well, this is all unexpected, isn't it? Activision released an atrocious teaser trailer for Guitar Hero Live yesterday, the next entry in its dormant shredding series – but we thought that it was just a mood piece. Actually, it turns out that British developer FreeStyleGames is making a full motion video game –...

Guitar Hero Live Goes First-Person

No, really

There's something funny about Call of Duty publisher Activision turning Guitar Hero Live – the next entry in the storied rhythm series – into a first-person rock-'em-up. However, a leaked report from Yahoo! France suggests that that's exactly what British studio Freestyle Games is about to reveal later today, as it attempts to put...

The will of the pack

As expected, Activision's gone ahead and revealed the teaser trailer for House of Wolves, Destiny's second slice of DLC. It's a decent little snippet that hints at a promising storyline, although after what the game's promised in the past, you'll have to excuse us for not getting our hopes up.
