Free Farming Simulator Theme Is the Best on PS4 Barn None

Manure gon' want it

Hay-ters are going to hay-te, but we love Farming Simulator 15 like pigs love muck. We were pleased to find an all-new agricultural theme in the PlayStation Store this morn, then, which spotlights a couple of tractors out working the field. This is a static PlayStation 4 wallpaper so it's not a-maize-ing like others you may have...

Divinity: Original Sin - Enhanced Edition (PS4)

Sin-ply divine

PC gamers have been roaming through Divinity: Original Sin since the middle of last year, after a successful Kickstarter campaign and some hefty delays. For these day-one players, it's been yet another long wait for the Enhanced Edition to roll out: an immense - and free - update to the initial release that fleshes out and extends an...

Blood Bowl 2 (PS4)

Fantasy football

With turn-based strategy games usually taking place in some sort of military or empire building setting, it's always nice to see a title bring something a little different to the table. In Blood Bowl 2, American football's been forced through a Warhammer fantasy filter to create a violent sport where Humans, Orcs, Elves, and Dwarves...

Styx: Shards of Darkness Sneaks Up on PS4 in 2016

Styx it to the man

Styx: Master of Shadows, the surprisingly well-received stealth-'em-up from Cyanide Studios, will get a sequel in 2016. The game – named Styx: Shards of Darkness – will see the sour-faced goblin attempting to infiltrate the city of the Dark Elves in an adventure that promises "new enemies, new environments, and a plethora of...

PS4 RPG Divinity: Original Sin Gets Seamless Local and Online Co-Op

This is how you do it

The PlayStation 4 edition of Divinity: Original Sin is looking better and better with every trailer; the highly praised role-playing release has been a big hit on PC, and we're beginning to see why. The way that the enhanced console port tackles co-op play is very forward thinking, as it essentially allows two players to...

PS4 RPG The Technomancer Looks Gritty and Promising

Mars attacks

Spiders, the studio behind the somewhat decent Bound by Flame, has released its first trailer for The Technomancer - a sci-fi, post-apocalyptic role-playing game - and it's looking reasonably promising. Clocking in at just under two minutes, there's not a whole lot to see, but we're liking the atmosphere and aspects of the art...

Tour de France 2015 (PS4)

Smooth ride

If your Sunday bike ride doesn't take you 180 kilometres through some of the most scenic areas of Europe, you really need to buck your ideas up. The rest of us – statuesque in our hard-bodied glory – don't really need a video game tie-in for the Tour de France, because we live it every single day. Still, last year's travesty...

PS4 Horror RPG Vampyr Gets Its Very First Trailer

Biting back

Vampyr is currently in the works over at Dontnod Entertainment, but all we've seen regarding the game is some very vague concept art. Fortunately, the developer's released something slightly more tangible: the title's very first trailer. Again, it's more of a mood setter than anything, but it's still the most that we've seen of the...

Farming Simulator 15 on PS4, PS3 Looks Udderly Essential

More than meats the eye

Manure so demanding. Every time new information on Farming Simulator 15 crops up, the thresher's on for us to come up with a new set of gags. The problem is that we just don't have anything gnu – all of our best puns have already been put out to pasture. To be honest, we feel like we're just milking things now, so we're...

Mars attacks

Spiders, the studio that created decent action role-playing game Bound by Flame, is currently working on a new title called The Technomancer, which is apparently a post-apocalyptic RPG set on Mars.

Corn You Believe It? Farming Simulator 15 Ploughs PS4, PS3 in May

They see me rollin', they hay-tin'

Farming Simulator 15, the most popular game on Push Square barn none – seriously, internal statistics show that you're all somewhat agriculturally inclined – will sow its seeds on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 from 19th May. The husbandry hit was revealed for Sony's systems last year, but a

Fangs very much

French developer DONTNOD is pretty busy these days, isn't it? With episodic adventure Life is Strange still in the works, the studio has revealed another project in the form of Vampyr – a horror-themed RPG. Apparently set after World War I, you'll be playing as a doctor who's bitten by a vampiric patient. The premise certainly...

Pigskin pillagers

American Football is fine and dandy, but surely we can all agree that it would be orders of magnitude more exciting if it were played by bloodthirsty fantasy villains. Luckily, this oddly specific desire will soon be fulfilled, as Blood Bowl 2 – the second entry in the sporting sim franchise – will be hitting the PlayStation 4...

Baker treat

Sherlock Holmes is the ultimate alpha male. He may not be particularly strong, but he has the ability to crush any man with his incredible intellect – and in Crimes and Punishments, a PlayStation 4 adventure loosely based upon Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous short stories and the BBC’s more modern adaptation, he practically revels...

Stealthpunk

What do you get when you mix stealth, steampunk, and a sprinkling of high fantasy? Okay, so you probably get Dishonored or Thief. But now there's a new kid on the block, in the form of PlayStation 4 title Styx: Master of Shadows. Developer Cyanide Studio recently announced the project on the PlayStation Blog, and
