Lara Croft Doesn't Have to Murder Everyone in Rise of the Tomb Raider

If looks could kill

Strengthening its similarities to The Last of Us, the forthcoming Rise of the Tomb Raider – which will deploy on the PlayStation 4 next year – can be played non-lethally.

Don't Call Hitman PS4 an Early Access Game, Says Developer

Apparently it'll be polished like 47's shiny head

"Everything we launch will be finished, polished and completed. When people hear Early Access they often think unfinished, unpolished and buggy. That's the opposite ," IO Interactive's Hannes Seifert has told VideoGamer.com regarding the Hitman franchise's newest iteration. The PlayStation 4 title...

Call off the party

At the time of writing, we're just twenty or so minutes away from Final Fantasy XV's Gamescom 2015 livestream. The game missed out on putting in an appearance at E3 so it could come back with a bang at the German convention, but it's time to put a dampener on your potential hype, we're afraid.

City of glasses

Not every game needs to have a brand new trailer for Gamescom 2015, y'know. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is one such title that, so far, has opted for a fresh set of screenshots, rather than a fancy pants new video for you to watch. In the images, we see gruff protagonist Adam Jensen modelling his new sunglasses and glorious goatee,...

Featuring a young Noctis and his regretful father, it's a pretty emotional clip, but it's hard not to feel like we need something more at this point...

The sandbox title's newest trailer is more of the same, but we doubt anyone's really complaining. The carnage on display looks...
