  • News Expect a Fallout 4: Far Harbor Performance Improving Patch Next Week on PS4

    See through the fog

    We were kind of hoping that Bethesda would be able to get a patch out earlier in the week to address Fallout 4: Far Harbor's serious frame rate issues on PlayStation 4, but it sadly didn't arrive in time for the weekend. However, over on its official Twitter account, the developer has confirmed that a fix is incoming. "We've...

  • News Just How Bad Is Fallout 4: Far Harbor on PS4?

    Pretty damn horrendous

    We got a lot of stick for our Fallout 4: Far Harbor review this week, with many criticising reviewer Robert Ramsey for taking the title's framerate to task. However, a Digital Foundry investigation proves just how bad the expansion runs on Sony's new-gen system, with the rele

  • News Fallout 4 Mods Set to Arrive on PS4 Next Month

    So close yet so far

    Fallout 4 mods are arriving on Xbox One at the end of the month, but Bethesda thankfully hasn't forgotten about the PlayStation Nation. After announcing a release date for mods on Microsoft's machine, the developer followed up by saying that mod support is "still on track for next month" with regards to PlayStation 4 players...

  • News Bethesda Actively Working on Improvements for Fallout 4: Far Harbor's Framerate

    Fog of war

    Our review of Fallout 4: Far Harbor went live this week, heavily criticising the add-on's performance on the PlayStation 4. Many argued that we should have given the expansive expansion a pass considering the quality of the content contained within, but we believe that critical framerate issues such as those encountered in this instance...

    Review Fallout 4: Far Harbor

    Fogging hell

    The fog of Far Harbor is to be feared. It inflicts radiation poisoning on those who dare to trek through it, it gives birth to horribly slimy creatures of the deep, and it does an admirable job of obscuring your view of the fiends that stalk the wilderness. The island's residents have a right to fear the mist: it keeps them penned...

  • Hands On Fallout 4: Far Harbor's Frame Rate Is Unacceptable on PS4

    Come on, Bethesda

    What a disappointment this turned out to be. Fallout 4 is easily the best performing title that Bethesda has ever released on a PlayStation platform, but its first big expansion, Far Harbor, is in a real state right now. We're just a few hours into the highly anticipated add-on, and we're honestly finding it difficult to keep...

    Review DOOM

    Leviticus 26:7

    It wasn't until Wolfenstein: The New Order that we noticed how homogeneous first-person shooters have become over the past decade. The genre's certainly made strides forward, but from a big picture perspective, we've spent the past decade or so taking cover and performing pot-shots to reach our objectives. However, MachineGames'...

  • News New Fallout 4: Far Harbor Trailer Will Get You Hyped for Tonight's Release

    Down to the depths

The add-on will be available to download on PlayStation 4 at 00:01AM no matter where you are. Technically, this means that Europe will be able to get stuck in hours...

  • Video Should You Buy DOOM on PS4?

    Hell's respawn

    We've been to Hell and back – and all you're getting is this lousy DOOMvideo review. While reviewer Joey Thurmond is still busy thoroughly investigating every last crevice of the underworld, yours truly has returned from Hades with a tale to tell. Watch on as we walk you through id Software's unashamedly old-school FPS – and...

  • Hands On Dispatching Demons in DOOM on PS4


    DOOM wastes no time setting out its stall. There a pentagram, a pistol, and one of Satan's soldiers. Pew, pew – off we go. Extremely late review copies mean that we've only just managed to get our hands on id Software's key card collecting sim – but does this unashamedly old-school FPS make a strong first impression? We're about three or...

  • Feature Is Survival Mode the Best Way to Play Fallout 4?

    We got ourselves a bleeder

    Launching on PlayStation 4 earlier this month, Fallout 4's update version 1.06 finally brought real survival to the Commonwealth. The title's revamped survival mode changes how the game's played on various fundamental levels, forcing you to eat, drink, and sleep in order to live through your post-apocalyptic adventure...

  • News Here's What You Can Expect From DOOM's Action-Packed Single Player Campaign

    No guts no glory

    DOOM's out in just a couple of days on PlayStation 4, so it's nice of Bethesda to release some new gameplay footage while we sit here waiting for our review copy to arrive. Snark aside, we're hoping that the shooter's single player campaign is up to snuff, because what we've seen of it so far has looked promising. In the game's...

  • Rumour Cancelled Open World Sci-Fi Title Prey 2 Could Be Revived at E3 2016

    Close encounters

    Those of you with good memories may remember a game called Prey 2, which was announced for the PlayStation 3 back in 2011. A sequel to the original Prey - a first-person sci-fi shooter - Prey 2 was supposedly going to be a pretty big deal; an open world action game in which you played as a bounty hunter, tracking down aliens and...

  • News Don't Expect DOOM PS4 Reviews Any Time Soon

    Review code not being sent until launch

    We're really looking forward to DOOM here at Push Square Towers, but if you're still sitting on the fence, then you may need to wait a little while for reviews. Bethesda has confirmed to IGN that it won't be sending out copies to critics ahead of release, because the title's online servers won't be switched...

  • News Fallout 4 Far Harbor Trophies Emerge From the Deep on PS4

    Let's have a look-sea

    Due to release on the 19th May, Far Harbor is Fallout 4's first major expansion, and takes place on an irradiated island that's apparently one of the biggest add-on areas that Bethesda's ever crafted. The downloadable content got an official trailer earlier this week - which you can watch through here - and now the...

The publisher says that the patch...

  • News Fallout 4's Huge Far Harbor Expansion Harpoons a Release Date on PS4

    And a creepy new trailer

    Far Harbor is Fallout 4's first big expansion, and it's out in just a couple of weeks. Emerging from its vault, Bethesda's unleashed the add-on's official trailer, which we've embedded. It's only a short video, but it seems pretty clear to us that Far Harbor's going to adopt a darker tone compared to the main game...

  • News Dishonored 2 Gets Stabby This November on PS4

    Business end of the blade

    Dishonored 2 is going to be out in time for the holidays, meaning that you can spend those cold wintry nights brutally murdering guardsmen and nobility.

  • News Here Are the Full Details on Fallout 4's Survival Mode

    Wasted in the wasteland

    Fallout 4's incoming survival mode is sounding more and more like a rather drastic gameplay overhaul as opposed to a new difficulty setting. Currently being beta tested on PC, the new mode makes living in the wasteland a much more realistic and brutal experience, and Bethesda's gone ahead and detailed everything that you...

  • News Fallout 4's Far Harbor Expansion Sounds Bloody Massive

    Making waves

    Fallout 4's already stuffed with content, boasting one of the most dense game worlds that we've seen in quite some time - and it sounds as though it's about to get a heck of a lot bigger. The game's third piece of downloadable content, titled Far Harbor, is set to be a more traditional expansion, introducing a fresh location that...

  • Guide How to Build the Best Robot Buddies in Fallout 4: Automatron

    Death machine

    Building your own robotic companion is a big part of Fallout 4: Automatron. Not far into the add-on, you'll get the ability to craft mechanical allies, and at first, the process can seem a bit daunting. With so many mods and parts to make use of, diving head-first into your new profession as a post-apocalyptic engineer can be...

    Review Fallout 4: Automatron

    Robots rock

    Fallout 4: Automatron is a logical step for a game that puts so much emphasis on its expansive crafting system. Allowing you to build and customise your own robotic partners, Fallout 4's first add-on has the potential to breath some new life into a dusty old save file, but don't expect its main quest line to keep you occupied for more...

  • News Sony Revokes Free Fallout 4 Season Pass Purchases on PS4


    You win some, you lose some – but you've always got to try. Sony accidentally listed Fallout 4's pricey Season Pass for free late last week, leading many to believe that they'd nabbed all of Bethesda's post-release content at a complimentary fee. However, it's since revoked access to the DLC, so you'll need to stump up if you want...

    Robot wars

    Automatron, the first expansion pack for Fallout 4, is out now, and if you're reading this article, you may be pondering how to play it.

Either way, you'll need to...

  • News Fallout 4's Survival Mode Isn't Too Far Off on PS4

    Best stock up on InstaMash

    Fallout 4's overhauled survival mode was confirmed weeks ago, but it's still yet to scavenge a concrete release date. The tweaked difficulty setting will require you to eat, drink, and sleep in order to survive, while healing happens over time, and ammunition has weight. Basically, it's going to make the game more of a...

  • News You Can Play Fallout 4's First DLC at Midnight on PS4

    North America has to wait, though

    Fallout 4's first slice of downloadable content, Automatron, is set to launch tomorrow on PlayStation 4, but Bethesda's revealed that European vault dwellers will be able to get stuck in as early as midnight. According to the publisher, the expansion will go live at 12:00AM across the Old World. However, you...

  • News Fallout 4's First DLC Looks Crazy, Launches Next Week on PS4

    Gotta build 'em all

    Automatron is shaping up to be the perfect excuse to jump back into Fallout 4, and we have to admit that we're intrigued by the add-on's official trailer. Judging from the clip, a lot of effort has gone into the main element of the download: robot customisation. The video shows off a load of different ways to build your...

  • News Fallout 4's Automatron DLC Comes Equipped with 5 New Trophies

    Risky robotics

    Bethesda still hasn't issued an official launch date for Fallout 4's first slice of downloadable content, but we know that it's due to release this month. Titled Automatron, the add-on sees your vault dweller repel robotic forces from the Commonwealth, collecting their parts in the process so that you can craft your very own...

  • News Fallout 4's New PS4 Patch Preps the Game for DLC This Week

    Atom bomb baby

    Update 1.4 for Fallout 4 will arrive on PlayStation 4 this week, according to Bethesda.

The first add-on, titled Automatron, is still set to launch at...

  • News DOOM's Multiplayer Beta Boost Jumps to PS4 This Month

  • News The Elder Scrolls Online Thieves Guild Story Trailer Sneaks into View

    Quietly does it

    The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited's third downloadable content pack, the Thieves Guild, should be another solid add-on for fans of the massively multiplayer online title.

  • News This Guy Won $1 Million Playing The Elder Scrolls Online

    Lucky bugger

    You may recall that back in December we reported on a big opportunity for players of The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited. Basically, if you hopped online for a spot of adventuring over a certain period, you'd be automatically entered into a prize draw to win $1 million. A tempting proposal indeed. And hey, someone's only gone...

  • News Don't Like DOOM's Crap Box Art? You Can Vote for a Better Design

    Blown away

    So, DOOM's box art is shite. We've said it, you've probably said it, and the Internet seemed to ramble about the issue for days on end – but now, there's a beacon of hope. The official DOOM Twitter account wants you to vote on a reverse cover for the upcoming shooter, and there are two available options. Option A is a bit arty, but...


  • News Want Fallout 4's Season Pass? We Suggest Getting It Now

    The price explodes tomorrow

    Consider this a friendly reminder that the season pass for Fallout 4 will jump in price tomorrow.

Bethesda announced that the pass would be increasing in price earlier this month, following the reveal of the title's...

  • News DOOM Should Run Like a Bloody Dream on PS4

    "The best-looking game at 1080p, 60fps"

    Gotta love the team over at id Software, eh?

"We want players to wonder how DOOM and idTech 6 games can be so...

  • News Fallout 4's Survival Mode Takes Things Way More Seriously

    It's a tough old world

    If you haven't already heard, Fallout 4 is getting a survival mode in a free update relatively soon. Much like Fallout: New Vegas' hardcore mode, you'll need to eat, sleep, and keep yourself hydrated in order to survive - but we could have guessed that this would be the case anyway. Nevertheless, Reddit's data mined some...

  • News Todd Howard Says Fallout 4 DLC Is 'Pokémon-Esque'

    Gotta scrap 'em all

    Who doesn't love an easily exploitable quote, eh? Speaking to Game Informer, Bethesda creative director Todd Howard has spilled a little more information on Fallout 4's upcoming downloadable content. As you may already know, three add-ons have been announced so far: there's Automatron in March, the Wasteland Works

  • News Fallout 4 Mods on PS4 May Be Arriving This Summer

    A rough estimate from Todd Howard

    Mod support for Fallout 4 has been a big talking point - especially when it comes to us console players. How will they work? Will they be limited? How long will we have to wait? All of these questions and more have been spiralling for months, but sadly, we're still no closer to any definitive answers. However,...

  • News Upcoming Fallout 4 PS4 Patch Lets You Make Really Ugly Settlements

    Meat bags, anyone?

    Fallout 4's getting some new content courtesy of update 1.4, which has just entered the beta phase on PC. Alongside a slew of bug and quest fixes, the patch will add a bunch of new items that you can build at your settlements. These items aren't your average bits and pieces though - most of them take inspiration from the lairs...

    A husk's best friend

    In a short but rather pleasant announcement, developer ZeniMax Online Studios has revealed that downloadable content owners will be getting freebies in The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited. This'll apply to both those who purchased the Orsinium expansion, and those who end up nabbing the upcoming Thieves Guild add-on...

  • News Fallout 4 Has a Secret that No One Has Discovered Yet

    According to Todd Howard

    Fallout 4's back in the headlines recently following the game's downloadable content reveal, and Bethesda creative director Todd Howard seems adamant to keep people talking about the studio's latest release. During his DICE talk last night, Howard teased a "secret" in Fallout 4 that, as far as he's aware, no one has...

  • News Fallout 4 Developer Bethesda Has Three New Games in the Works

    A glimpse of the future

    It certainly seems like Bethesda is expanding as a developer if creative director Todd Howard's words during a DICE talk are to be believed. According to the always enthusiastic boss, the studio is currently working on three unannounced projects. Admittedly, Howard doesn't go into much detail, but he does say that the...

  • News Fallout 4 Finally Drops a Bomb with DLC Details

    Custom robots, taming monsters, and big expansions

    Bethesda's finally opened the vault door on its downloadable content plans for Fallout 4, and to be honest, they sound pretty interesting.

  • News Fallout 4's Season Pass Is About to Get Pricier on PS4

    Start counting your caps

    Hmm. Either publisher Bethesda's doing us a brilliant favour, or it's trying to convince more people to buy Fallout 4's Season Pass before reviews for the content spill out. Either way, it's announced that starting from 1st March, the price of the pre-purchase will increase from $29.99 (£24.99) to $49.99 (£39.99). That's...

  • News DOOM's Single Player Campaign Will Last You 13 Gory Hours

    Better grab some ammo

    We'd like to think that publisher Bethesda is on a roll with the shooters that it's got under its umbrella these days. Much like 2014's Wolfenstein: The New Order, it would appear that DOOM is going to provide a rather meaty single player experience. The news comes from the title's official Twitter account, where, in reply...

  • News You'll Starve and Get Diseases in Fallout 4's Survival Mode

    You asked for it

    Fallout 4 is a funny game, isn't it? This author enjoyed his time with it enough to unlock the coveted Platinum Trophy, but looking back it's hard not to feel a little disappointed. For many people, that dissatisfaction set in right from the off, due to the sequel's watered down Survival Mode. Fortunately, developer Bethesda has...

  • News Fallout 4's New Patch Makes the Game Look Better on PS4

    Isn't that nice

    There wasn't anything too exciting included in Fallout 4's latest PlayStation 4 patch, but we're pleasantly surprised to hear that the update seems to have improved the graphical quality of the title on Sony's console. According to our pals over at Digital Foundry, who have run multiple tests on the game, Bethesda's blockbuster...

  • News The Latest Bug Busting Fallout 4 Patch Is Now Available on PS4

    The fixer

    How many fixes can you fit into a 506MB patch? We couldn't tell you the answer to that, but Fallout 4's going for a record with its latest PlayStation 4 update. The patch was expected on Sony's home console last week, but clearly it was delayed. Update 1.3, as mentioned, features an absolute ton of bug fixes, big and small. It also adds...

  • News The Internet Reckons DOOM's PS4 Box Art Is Bad

    And, for once, the Internet is right

    In concept, DOOM couldn't possibly appeal less to this author's tastes. For starters, it's more heavy metal than the doodles on a teenage misfit's pencil case, but it's also one of those games where the shooting's only ever going to be the draw – we're not expecting anything in the way of story at all. Despite...

  • News DOOM Blows Away PS4 in May

    Hell yeah

    Better start stocking up on ammo, because DOOM finally has a confirmed release date. The new-gen shooter has looked great in the footage that we've seen of it so far, with chaotic, brutal battles against ugly, ugly enemies taking precedence over the usual bells and whistles that so many shooters get bogged down with these days. The...

  • News Fallout 4's Next Patch Goes Nuclear on PS4 This Week

    Patch me up, doc

    Fallout 4's patch 1.3 has emerged from its beta testing stage on PC, and will be available on PlayStation 4 later this week, Bethesda has revealed. In truth, the update doesn't really do anything overly exciting - it just fixes a ton of bugs, both general and quest-specific, and adds a "status menu" so that you can track your...

  • News Oh God, the E3 2016 Announcements Are Starting Already

    It's the 1st February today folks, and that means E3 is a mere five or so months away. In other words, it's time to start thinking about this year's show - what fun! No but seriously, are we really talking about E3 2016 already? Look, we know it's a relatively slow news day, but this is a step too far. Following on from its E3 2015...
