Lloyd is loving Warframe
2013 was a simpler time. The Last of Us had just blown people’s socks off on the PlayStation 3, people were anticipating The Order: 1886, and the PlayStation 4 was new. In among such launch classics as Call of Duty: Ghosts and Knack, a free-to-play title called Warframe launched. Warframe, in it’s launch state, was...
Warframe continues to show the industry what free-to-play games can be given enough time and effort, with developer Digital Extremes dishing out a ton of new details on upcoming content at TennoCon 2018. And yes, for those who don't know, TennoCon is an official, annual Warframe convention. Mental. Anyway, players...
If you really want to get stuck into it, Warframe can eat away hours upon hours of your time -- and the overall experience is about to get even bigger. Announced a while back, the free-to-play title's Plains of Eidolon update is finally landing on PlayStation 4 next week. Developer Digital Extremes has marked its launch down...
Breathe it in
Digital Extremes has released a 20 minute video that showcases Warframe's Plains of Eidolon update. For those out of the loop, the update brings a whole new open world environment to the free-to-play release, and it's due to launch at some point this year. As you'd expect, the Warframe community is generally very excited to see...
Warframe was one of several free-to-play games available on PlayStation 4 for the console's launch. When we reviewed it all the way back in December of 2013 (that long ago? Really?) it's safe to say that we were critical. Back then, the third-person action title was still technically in its beta phase on Sony's system, and it had more than...
Everyone do the ninja
There are conventions for ventriloquists, Abraham Lincoln look-a-likes, and taxidermists, so why shouldn't Warframe join the fun? The free-to-play PlayStation 4 ninja-'em-up has over 22 million players across multiple platforms, and developer Digital Extremes hopes that a pool of the most engaged users will descend on London,...
They just keep on coming
Free-to-play title Warframe is getting yet another large content update on PlayStation 4, bringing new frames, quests, locations, and game modes to the ever-expanding table. At this point, the release has been tweaked and built upon rather extensively, making the stealth and shooter sci-fi hybrid more and more worthy of a...
Stealthily does it
You've got to hand it to Digital Extremes, the developer behind PlayStation 4 free-to-play shooter Warframe. The amount of post-release support that the game has received has been impressive to say the least, and it's getting to the point where it's almost an entirely different beast to the title that was available when Sony's...
Warframe has evolved quite a bit since we reviewed it back near the PlayStation 4's launch. Over a year in, and the free-to-play title has expanded significantly, building upon its already solid, if unspectacular, foundation. And right now, you can download the title's latest update, which adds yet more new content to the co-op...
War always changes
Back in our review of Digital Extremes' PlayStation 4 free-to-play shooter, we declared that Warframe was a decent game, but it needed some work before we could consider it to be truly compelling. It's promising, then, that the developer seems determined to improve on its relatively solid product by adding in some heavily...
Digital Extremes' Warframe is still technically in beta, and it shows with this absolutely monstrous new update. Everything in the patch is detailed on the free-to-play shooter's official forum, from the mountain of gameplay changes to more standard bug fixes, and the introduction of new unlockable content. The suitably titled "Valkyr...
You've been framed
Bolstering the PlayStation 4's launch line-up are a number of free-to-play games, including Digital Extremes' Warframe – a third person action RPG, full of loot, levelling, and co-op chaos. It's a combination that immediately brings to mind something like Mass Effect 3, especially when you consider that the game also features a...
Named and framed
Occupying just three PlayStation 4s at Sony's Eurogamer Expo booth, Digital Extreme's free-to-play co-op sci-fi romp shared the same floor as juggernauts like Killzone: Shadow Fall and Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. Warframe's presence brought a homey feel to the otherwise bustling show, as members of the development team talked...
Canadian outfit adores Sony's new system
The Darkness II developer Digital Extremes has only been working on the PlayStation 4 for about three months, but it’s already pieced together a build of its upcoming free-to-play shooter Warframe for the platform. It’s that kind of efficiency that’s prompted the studio to fall in love with the...
Following this week’s announcement, Digital Extremes has deployed the first cinematic trailer for its upcoming PlayStation 4 launch title, Warframe. The free-to-play third-person shooter sees you assume the role of a futuristic ninja, who has access to a variety of firearms and melee weapons. The title will run in 1080p on Sony’s...
Terrible name, decent game
It seems that nothing is able to stop the growth of the PlayStation 4’s launch lineup at this point. Hot on the heels of yesterday’s Basement Crawl announcement from Bloober Team, legendary Unreal developer Digital Extremes has confirmed that it’s bringing its acrobatic third-perso
In order to celebrate the release of The Darkness II's demo on the PlayStation Store today, 2K's tossed over the game's launch trailer in order to get us totally salivating over the title's early February release
It's rare that a game lets you play as an absolute juggernaut of questionable motive, but The Darkness certainly brings something new to the table. We were pretty hot on its predecessor,..
We're pretty sure 2K Games understands that February is a stacked month for games
With Binary Domain, Grand Slam Tennis 2 and the launch of the PlayStation Vita all vying for your cash — the publisher hopes that by releasing a demo for The Darkness II your money will gravitate towards its dark, comic-book inspired game. It's unclear what The Darkness II's demo will contain at this stage, but..
You absolutely won't need to harbor The Darkness alone
Publisher 2K Games has announced this afternoon that The Darkness II will sport a four-player co-operative game mode known as Vendettas. The moody mode takes place in parallel to the main plot, and has players assuming the role of four different characters, each possessing a unique Darkness weapon. The mode's pitched as a "team-focused,..
We don't remember The Darkness being so gross
Sure we remember the portions of the campaign when it went really crazy — the Hellish trenches scene continues to haunt us — but geez, this latest trailer for The Darkness II gives Mortal Kombat a run for its money. We suppose it's appropriate for Hallowe'en, but man, if you're eating right now, we can only recommend that you don't click play.
We'll be honest, we've not been that excited by what we've seen of The Darkness 2 so far
Sure the game's got a neat art-style, but it's a universe we hadn't really considered returning to. But the game's latest trailer — narrated by a complete an utter odd-ball — is actually really cool. Not only does it make the fiction seem totally engaging, but the bits and bobs of gameplay included look..
If you've already registered interest in The Darkness II or are just about to -- then you're in luck
2K Games has announced that it will be upgrading all pre-orders of the game to a Limited Edition version. This includes a Crazy Abdul darkling outfit and two ability upgrades: Gourmet Hearts and Relic Hunter. You'll also net an illustration by Marc Silvestri and downloadable versions of the comics..
Did you miss out on the original The Darkness? Shame on you
The game was actually a surprisingly unique first-person shooter. Still, we understand if you're not willing to set aside the time to play through the game in 2011. And 2K gets that too. Hence it's released a little recap video to get you up to date ahead of its upcoming sequel, The Darkness II. Catch it after the jump. The Darkness II is..
It's that time of the year again
The time of the year where publishers of not-quite-blockbuster-games delay their big fall releases because of the looming threat of Call Of Duty and Uncharted and Batman and Battlefield. 2K Games' The Darkness II is the first notable title to be pushed out of its release window, presumably for marketing reasons. The title will now release in February, as opposed to..
If you're a fan of Star Trek, you're going to want to be playing Paramount Digital's latest game on PlayStation 3
The co-op adventure will feature both PlayStation Move and 3D support. In addition, Sony has announced that an exclusive prequel to the game will be released on the PlayStation Network only.
We're out of touch: do people still like Star Trek? Apparently they do, as Paramount Digital has announced a new co-operative based Star Trek game featuring Spock and Kirk based on their 2009 movie blockbuster guises
The game's in development at Digital Extremes, who are currently hard at work on The Darkness II. The game takes place after the film and will depict Spock and Kirk attempting to take..
When we first heard The Darkness was getting a sequel, we were a bit like, "Yeah whatever?" We liked the original game a fair amount, but never considered it a classic like many others do
That said, we were wrong to be so dismissive of The Darkness II. This new trailer for the sequel looks pretty impressive. We adore the new graphic novel visual style that developers Digital Extremes have..
2K's attached a date to the return of possessed hitman, Jackie Estacado
The Darkness II will release on October 4th in North America and October 7th in Europe. To celebrate the news, 2K has released a new trailer. We've embedded it above. It's short, but worth a watch.
The original The Darkness had a dark but predictable visual style
The sequel, however, will be cel-shaded. That's according to the game's lead designer, Digital Extremes' Tom Galt, who insisted that the new studio are "carving" their own path for The Darkness II, with a bigger emphasis on action and story. What Starbreeze did well, in a nutshell, were characters and story, said Galt..
Remember The Darkness? Vaguely
Yeah, us too. We remember watching "To Kill A Mockingbird" with our polygonal girlfriend. Then it all went a bit weird and we had snakes coming out of our shoulders. Then it got even weirder, and we started walking around trenches, except the soldiers in them were all skeletons. Or something. Honestly, we can't remember much else. We do know people have been..
Take Two's nailed down a date of August 31st for Bioshock 2's final slice of DLC, "Minerva's Den"
The $9.99 extension builds on the single-player narrative of Bioshock 2, and plunges players deep into Rapture once again. The additional campaign adds three new areas to explore, aswell as six new Little Sisters. The DLC's narrative runs alongside...
2K Games has confirmed that Bioshock 2 will be getting new single-player focused story content
The add-on, titled Minerva's Den, will see players taking on the role of a brand new character and teaming up with Brigid Tenebaum to fight a dictator's district in Rapture. "Minerva's Den is a substantial addition that will give players more of what they're looking for: more story, more narrative,..
There's new DLC incoming for Bioshock 2
And while the first batch is totally all about the multiplayer, 2K's promised there is single-player DLC incoming too. 2K described the "on-the-horizon" single-player pack as a means to provide more narrative, new tools and new challenges that extend the lore and fiction of the failed Utopia under...
Bioshock 2's probably going to be awesome
But even with a trailer this explosive, we can't help but feel underwhelmed. Don't get us wrong, it's a good trailer, and the game looks good. But still, we don't feel anything for it.
Geoff Keighley's back folks
And he's brought tons of new stuff from Bioshock 2 with him. There are some mild spoilers in the embedded video, so watch at your own peril. Still, news on Bioshock 2 has been so thin, we doubt anyone will be passing up on this content. Plus Geoff Keighley's in it. Did we mention that?
GameTrailers TV haven't had a big ass exclusive for us to post about for a while
That changes this week though, when host Geoff Keighley tackles the secrets of Bioshock 2, and finally reveals exactly who is running Rapture these days. According to Keighley there'll be plenty of new "single player footage and info" — something that's been missing for a while. You can catch the episode..
Bioshock 2 may be being developed by about 20,000 different developers, but those guys are finally gearing up to release the product
In fact, the game will hit retail fairly early into 2010, on February 9th. To be honest, scepticism is pretty high across the gaming sphere for a game that many argue shouldn't exist in the first place. We'll happy to see more of it though.
Take-Two have announced that Bioshock 2 will be pushed back until the "first half of 2010"
Concerns have been raised over the game's direction and "too many cooks" development approach over the past few months - surely some reasoning behind the delay. Take-Two's Chairman Strauss Zelnick publicly apologized about the setback in a press release:"We recognize that our revised outlook..
Bioshock 2 is a bit like video game pass-the-parcel
A fourth development house has joined the Bioshock circus today. Lyon-based Arkane Studios joins lead developer 2K Marin (in California), its collaborator 2K Australia, and multiplayer specialist Digital Extremes (headquartered in Ontario). It's like Around The World In Four Development Houses. Goodness knows how Bioshock 2 as a product will..
