Rebellion’s busy doubling down on the Sniper Elite franchise, and in addition to a PlayStation VR instalment, it’s kicking things off with Sniper Elite V2 Remastered – an upgraded version of 2012’s likeable PlayStation 3 shooter, itself a remake of the original entry in the franchise. Due out on 14th May, this polished package...
Aim down sights
Oxford-based studio Rebellion is going Sniper Elite crazy, with the announcements of Sniper Elite V2 Remastered and Sniper Elite 5. But it’s got one more long-range shooter in production: Sniper Elite VR. A collaboration with UK studio Just Add Water, the title appears to be in development for PlayStation VR – and it looks like...
Popping penises on PS5?
A full-scale sequel to Sniper Elite 4 is in development at Oxford-based developer Rebellion, but it won’t be sharing anymore information for a year. That’s particularly curious timing, when you consider that we’d expect the PlayStation 5 to be officially announced by then. Could it be a next-gen title? We honestly...
Third time's a charm
Sniper Elite started life on the PlayStation 2, and was later remade for the PlayStation 3 in the form of Sniper Elite V2. What harm is another console generation going to do, then? Sniper Elite V2 Remastered is due out this year on the PlayStation 4, bringing you back to Berlin with 4K graphics on the PS4 Pro and HDR support...
2018 has been a stellar year for PlayStation VR. After Sprint Vector kicked things off with a speedy locomotive system that had everyone at Push Square Towers working up a sweat, we’ve been treated to the likes of cutesy platformer Moss, horror fanatics were swept away with The Persistence, and those looking for a
Super monkey ball
Virtual reality allows us to interact with video games in ways that simply wouldn't be possible with a controller, and Arca's Path, from British developer Dream Reality Interactive, is about to introduce yet another take on control and movement within the PlayStation VR space. Without any sort of DualShock 4 or PlayStation Move...
Hunting horrifying hordes
As the British Empire’s occult hit squad, the Strange Brigade are dispatched whenever the rampant looting of other cultures leads to supernatural forces being unleashed on the world. While many would argue this may just be karma paying the Brits back for years of colonial oppression, it’s probably best to try and avoid...
Video won't leave you vexed
Co-op shooter Strange Brigade’s going to have its work cut-out standing out in a stacked release schedule, but kudos to Rebellion who’s really putting in the time to illustrate what makes its 1930’s affair unique. This trailer is particularly great, neatly showcasing all of the features in the game, while the...
The 1930s co-op shooter Strange Brigade is almost upon us, and with it comes the obligatory launch trailer. The promising third person supernatural shooter has a great style and a unique vibe that we've come to rather enjoy, but something that hasn't been discussed too much is its small group of...
Nothing strange about that
The marketing machine is whirring to life for Strange Brigade, as it's out in a matter of days. The 1930s co-op shooter is looking rather promising, and Rebellion has put out the above video that talks through all the key points about how the game works. It seems quite well rounded with its trio of modes to tackle, and we...
Strange Brigade, Rebellion's schlocky 1930s co-op shooter, releases on PS4 in just a few weeks, and it's looking pretty strong. However, we've only seen its main campaign mode so far. Over on the PlayStation Blog, the game's lead designer Steve Bristow has finally opened up about what else this curious game has to offer, and he's detailed...
And a Season Pass
Launching games is only part of the puzzle these days: you’ve got to support them long after release as well. Strange Brigade, the co-op shooter scheduled to drop at the tail end of August, is already looking further into the future, announcing monthly free content drops and a Season Pass which will include a three-part...
Rebellion knows its way around a good co-op game, so there’s very little to not like about the upcoming Strange Brigade – a 1930s-themed pulp adventure for up to four players. This brand new E3 2018 trailer shows the title off in all of its glory, demonstrating the extent of its gameplay variety – and also its cast’s unique...
The thirties-tinged antics found in Strange Brigade, the new co-op shooter from the Sniper Elite folks at Rebellion, offer up a pretty unique experience. The above trailer will put you in the mood for its schlocky, pulp action vibe and supernatural settings. A mummified witch queen named Seteki has risen from her tomb, and it's up to the...
Tanks a lot
One of our favourite PlayStation VR launch titles was Battlezone, Rebellion's tank battling game. Though it works great in virtual reality, some players were disappointed that the extra hardware was required to play the game. Now, the developer has announced Battlezone Gold Edition, which will remove the need for Sony's headset, allowing...
Just the ticket
One of the higher profile games at EGX Rezzed 2018 was Rebellion's thirties-tinged third person shooter, Strange Brigade. Oddly enough, the demo we played was single player, despite the main focus of the game being its four-player co-op. Still, what we played of this B-movie inspired action game proved it has some fun ideas that...
PS2 curio Rogue Trooper is an unlikely candidate for the remaster treatment. Taken from the pages of eclectic British comic 2000AD, Sniper Elite developer Rebellion had a decent stab at trying something new with the always swamped third-person shooter genre. Receiving positive reviews, it’s since faded into obscurity. Hopefully,...
Oxford developer Rebellion has quite the checkered history, stretching across 23 years and multiple platforms. Now best known for the ball-busting Sniper Elite series, its output ranges from classic (Aliens vs Predator) to not so classic (Rogue Warrior). Now, alongside fellow UK studio Tick Tock Games, it's revamping a PlayStation 2-era...
Originally released all the way back in 2006 for the PlayStation 2, Rogue Trooper is still fondly remembered by some as a solid third-person shooter. Developer Rebellion is remastering the cult classic and bringing it to PlayStation 4 on the 17th October. Hopefully the gameplay still holds together. Judging by the graphics...
Here’s a good chunk of gameplay from Strange Brigade, the new co-operative third-person shooter from Sniper Elite developer Rebellion. For those of you who don’t know, this game has a kind of… To be honest, we’re not sure what the actual term for it is, but it’s based on the melodrama of 1930s movie trailers and stuff like...
This is cool: Sniper Elite developer Rebellion has announced its next game, Strange Brigade. The title is a four-player co-operative shooter in the same vein as Zombie Army Trilogy, but this time it’s boasting a 1930s-inspired Mayan, Incan, and Egyptian theme. You’ll see what we mean when you watch the trailer embedded above...
Free multiplayer content also coming
The very likeable Sniper Elite 4 will be receiving the first part in its Deathstorm mini-campaign story starting 21st March, with a further two instalments set to follow later in the year. Playable for up to two players, the first episode will whisk you away to the snowy setting of Northern Italy, where you must...
We've busted our balls busting balls to bring you a Sniper Elite 4 review ahead of its release date, but you probably fancy a bit of video footage to go with it, right? The above isn't the tightly edited clip you've come to expect from Push Square; technical issues put pain to that. But it does include a good 12 minutes of gameplay...
Elite operative Karl Fairburne has busted more balls than Sasha Grey during a particularly intense bukkake session, and he's back to scope out more in Sniper Elite 4. This time the American's perfectly parted hair has eloped to Italy, where he must scupper an assassination plot involving the balding Dwight D. Eisenhower. A series of...
We love these 101 trailers that Rebellion likes to put out. There's nothing wrong with fancy cinematic trailers, but sometimes you just want to know what a game has to offer, and this Sniper Elite 4 clip spells it all out so that there can be no confusion. It details everything from the kind of gameplay experience you can expect, right...
Tank you very much
Rebellion's ridiculously good PlayStation VR title Battlezone will explore its roots with a free eighties update dropping on 20th December. The download will plot a return to the wireframe visuals of old, all packaged as part of a new Classic campaign. Lovely jubbly. The new update, labelled v1.03, will also augment fresh...
Tanks for the support
Battlezone's already one of the better PlayStation VR experiences – review forthcoming, we promise – but it looks like it's going to shine on the PlayStation 4 Pro, too. Rebellion has released patch v1.02 today which enhances the virtual reality exclusive for Sony's new hardware, and you can expect sharper image quality...
What more is there to say about Battlezone right now? The forthcoming PlayStation VR launch title is absolutely a must-own, but you already knew that when we previewed it earlier in the year. This week we were invited back up to Rebellion to feast our eyes on the final build, and our opinion hasn't really changed: the Oxford-based...
Tank you very much
We're here at EGX 2016, which means we're beaming hastily crafted articles and shoddily edited videos straight to your eyeballs from a room the size of a shoebox. No, seriously -- that last bit wasn't even a joke. The good news is that we've got all of 2016's -- and some of 2017's -- biggest games on tap, and we'll be bringing you...
We're not sure how much more Rebellion can possibly stuff into Battlezone, but the British-based developer's announced today that it will include online co-op as well. While you can play through the campaign alone if you like, you'll also have the option to team up with up to three friends, which is just totally awesome. "The immersion...
Tanks very much
There's no question that Battlezone is the best PlayStation VR title that we've tried to date, so we didn't really need another trailer to sell us on the game. This clip does tease at tons of new features, though, including new enemy types, weapons, and even tanks. The cool thing about this game is that it's got a procedurally...
VR you ready?
Battlezone, the mind-blowing PlayStation VR launch title from Rebellion, will be getting a boxed release on 13th October – and Sony's the one publishing it. The platform holder's partnered hard with the Oxford-based developer on this title, so it's no surprise to see the firm consummate the collaboration with a retail launch...
Down the barrel
Sniper Elite 4 will bunker down for a few more months than expected, as Rebellion has attached a 14th February release date to the long-range shooter. The title was originally due out later this year, but with BattleZone releasing alongside PlayStation VR in October, the Oxford-based developer has decided to push the game back a...
Murder in the Mediterranean
For many, Rebellion's successful Sniper Elite series is a gaming guilty pleasure. Seasoned soldier Karl Fairburne has been busting balls since the heady days of the PlayStation 2, and now finds himself slinking into battle for a fourth time. Continuing the property's theme of depicting unexpected but engaging World War II...
Tank you very much
Holy moly, virtual reality is truly mind blowing stuff. We were recently invited out to legendary developer Rebellion's headquarters to get some eyes-on time with Battlezone on PlayStation VR – and we've talked about little else since. This is only phase one for the fledging medium's return to the mainstream, and already it's...
Aim down the sights
Popular testi-kill series Sniper Elite will be bringing its brand of ball bursting action to the PlayStation 4 for a second time this year, as elite marksman Karl Fairburne returns to the trenches yet again. Sniper Elite 4 has been announced for Sony's new-gen system, and this time it will find you vanquishing fascism amid the...
We talk to Rebellion about its Project Morpheus revival
Even in an industry obsessed with reboots and remasters, Battlezone is the last brand that we'd expect to be making a comeback. And yet the timing is practically perfect: Atari's iconic upright arcade cabinet embodied virtual reality in the 1980s, and now with Project Morpheus poised to...
Tank! Tank! Tank!
This author's a little too young to remember Battlezone, but for many it provided a formative arcade experience. For those that don't know, the cabinet came with a kind of periscope, which was used as a window into the polygonal action. Your objective in the Atari game was to bust wireframe tanks – and now Rebellion is bringing...
Just a little off the top
Zombies have been the perennial whipping boys of the shooter genre for a while now, and it was inevitable that at some point they'd get mashed up with Nazis – second in the cannon fodder league table – to create the ultimate guilt-free targets to blast away at. While Zombie Army Trilogy on the PlayStation 4 is far from...
You did Nazi this one coming
There are games like Journey and The Last of Us, which attempt to challenge us emotionally – but sometimes you just want to embed bullets in rotten flesh. Zombie Army Trilogy, a PlayStation 4 compilation of Rebellion's undead-'em-up, has shuffled onto Sony's next-gen system this week, and promises to make the hunt for...
Gun to go
Rebellion's wince-inducing undead-a-thon Zombie Army Trilogy will start its slow shuffle into homes from 6th March, legendary British outfit Rebellion has announced. This is a Friday, so we're assuming that the date applies to the UK only, but we're yet to learn of a North American timeframe for the title. We'll reach out to the...
We did Nazi that coming
With all of the testicle targets and what not, British developer Rebellion's strangely popular Sniper Elite series is already insane – but Zombie Army Trilogy aims to up the ante with hordes of the undead. Due out on the PlayStation 4 later this year, the rotting release will include Zombie Army 1 and 2 from the PC, as well...
Ever since it’s allowed you to detach the private parts of opposing forces, it’s been hard to take Rebellion’s long-range shooting series Sniper Elite seriously. Fortunately, the British developer’s embraced that silliness, adding x-ray cams to cars in the upcoming Sniper Elite III – and confirming that undead spin-off...
Pull the trigger
Publisher 505 Games has confirmed that it will release a demo for Rebellion’s upcoming Sniper Elite V2. The short sampler will launch at some point this month ahead of the game’s full release in May. It’s unclear what the demo will include, but we’re expecting a mission or two from the final game. Remember, if you pre-order...
End this hellish war
It’s telling that the most interesting thing about Sniper Elite V2 is its pre-order bonus, but, having said that, killing flippin' Hitler is a pretty big selling-point after all. The additional mission’s up for grabs now for all those who register interest in Rebellion’s sequel ahead of its 4th May release. Just please,...
We're going to be honest, we don't know a whole lot about Konami's NeverDead
We know it's being developed by British-based studio Rebellion. And we know that the game's protagonist is immortal, able to lose limbs during combat and then pick them up at a later date. But that's about the extent of our knowledge. Perhaps that's all Konami wants us to know because, to be honest, that does sound pretty..
505 Games has announced that it will publish Sniper Elite V2 on the PlayStation 3 next year
The game is being developed by Rebellion. Its very exciting to be working with one of the new breed of major publishers like 505 Games, said Rebellion CEO, Jason Kingsley. Sniper Elite was an important, genre-defining property and were hoping to have even greater success by teaming up with the..
A Develop report states that British outfit Rebellion -- the guys behind the infinitely popular Aliens Vs
Predator — are actively involved with Sony's new NGP handheld platform. The report notes that the studio has successfully reworked its Asura Engine to take advantage of Sony's portable "in preparation for a new series of internally-built handheld projects". Apparently the studio..
If you've not been torn away by Battlefield: Bad Company 2 yet, SEGA would like you to know that they have DLC planned for Aliens vs Predator next week
The content's the same as what you might have got if you bought the Special Edition SKU of the game when it launched last month. For those of you that didn't get the SE though, you'll get four bonus...
Another week and another shooter has taken the crown from Ubisoft's current Wii phenomenom, Just Dance
Amazingly for Rebellion, Aliens vs Predator has become the fastest-selling game in 2010, topping last week's record holder, Bioshock 2 (now in third). Of course, they're both gonna get crushed by Battlefield: Bad Company 2. Either way, big congrats to SEGA and Rebellion, though we do have an issue..
If you downloaded the Aliens vs Predator demo and were unable to play the game, then, yo, you were not alone
It was borked. The matchmaking didn't work.. Alas, SEGA's just sent us word that the old demo has been removed, and replaced with a new, working version. Hurrah. So if you want to check out the demo, you totally can now. Just check with this...
SEGA's told VG247 that Rebellion are working on some matchmaking issues apparent in the PS3 version of the Aliens vs Predator multiplayer demo
Since our earlier update regarding successful patching of the PC demo of AvP, weve been working with Sony and SEGA on investigating reports of a similar issue from some PS3 owners, a SEGA spokesperson...
Predator</a> is not too far away. Which means it's time for SEGA to tell us about a new trailer, demo, or thing-ma-jig relating to the game every 5 seconds. Well nearly. But yo, y'know, this trailer is actually pretty awesome. Those lighting effects at the start are great. If you want to try the game out for yourself, a multiplayer demo was part of yesterday's PSN update.
SEGA's announced there'll be a demo for Aliens Vs Predator on the Playstation Network tomorrow
Sadly, those looking for some single-player goodness will have to make do with some multiplayer modes, as the demo is multiplayer only.Multiplayer was a huge part of our original AvP game back in 1999, and weve kept the spirit of that classic...
Amazing news if you're interested in Rebellion's upcoming Aliens Vs
Predator</a> title. Not so interesting news for everyone else. AvP's lead designer Alex Moore has confirmed to AvPGalaxy that, "There will be a demo," and, "That's all we can say." No platforms nor dates were mentioned. You can move on now.
This latest Aliens Vs
Predator</a> trailer is dubbed a "story trailer". In actual fact, it's more like a "shoot anything that moves to edgy music" trailer. But who cares, when it looks as inevitably rad as this game does? Can - not - wait.
MCV reckons that Rebellion's Aliens Vs Predator will launch on February 19th in three versions: Standard, Survivor and Hunter
The Survivor edition comes in a metal-tin case, and features a code for DLC multiplayer maps, coming post launch. The Hunter edtion includes the same goodies, but throws in a Facehugger model, a Weyland Yutani sleeve badge and a 3D postcard ma-jig.
Australia's ratings board, the OFLC, has refused the release of SEGA's Aliens Vs Predator in the region
In a statement to GameSpot, SEGA Australia said they would "continue to investigate all options available to us, including the possibility of appeal. Why has it been refused classification though?The game contains first-person perspective, close-up depictions of human characters being..
SEGA have decided to lift the lid somewhat on Rebellion's upcoming return to the Aliens franchise, with Aliens vs
Predator</a>. In this trailer, a host of British magazine journalists advertise the game. Which is a bit weird. Because, like, the game's not out yet. Erm. Yeah. We're probably just bitter no one asked us.
SEGA have been tantilising our inbox all day
A screenshot here. Confirmation of a trailer there. Apparently they think Aliens vs Predator is a big deal — and they're right, it is. Guys - let's reiterate: it's Aliens vs. Predator. Check the teaser above.
How much can you determine about a game from one screenshot? Usually not a lot
In the case of this new Aliens vs. Predator screenshot though; we determined a hell of a lot. There will be: guns, muscle-heads operating guns and aliens. What more could you want in a video game?
