News Dead Island 2 Launch Trailer Brings a Nine-Year Wait to an End
Imagine telling the studio at the time Yager Entertainment that the project it's working on will not receive a launch trailer for another nine years.

News Be Both DJ and Detective in Killer Frequency, an 80s Infused Murder Mystery on PS5, PS4

This unusual new game from Team 17 is coming to PS5 and PS4 on 1st June 2023, and it has us intrigued. Playing as Forrest Nash, a radio DJ in 1980s America, you...
News Milestone Announces RIDE 5, Its First New-Gen Only Game, Releasing This August
Motorcycle sim racer coming soon
The first sign that the end of the world is upon us will be that Milestone will stop making games about motorbikes. It has three or four annual series, all concerned with racing on two wheels.

News Trails into Reverie Revels in Randomised Dungeons and Delightfully Dumb Minigames
This is something that we didn't really know about Trails into Reverie: it's actually got a wide range of optional content, ranging from challenging dungeon delves to minigames. Obviously the upcoming RPG's main draw is its story, which basically acts as an epilogue to the Trails of Cold Steel series, but Falcom's clearly...

News PS5 MMO Blue Protocol Looks Like a Legit Anime in Opening Movie
Still on track for 2023
Bandai Namco’s Blue Protocol has been a long time coming, but it’s partnered with Amazon Game Studios to get the project over the line, and considering the success of Genshin Impact and Final Fantasy 14, we’d argue that’s probably a shrewd business move. While there’s no firm rele

News Tekken 8 Confirms Leroy, Asuka Have Made the Cut
What's good, sugar?
We honestly thought that the Tekken 8 character trailers were over — at least for a little while — but no, Bandai Namco has just dropped another two at Evo Japan. Said trailers confirm that Leroy Smith and Asuka Kazama will return. There was something of a question mark over both characters making the cut, but for very...

News Hunt the Night Might Help with Zelda FOMO on PS5, PS4
A Link to The Path
Hunt the Night is an excellent-looking action RPG which puts us in mind of old-school Zelda, Hyper Light Drifter, and The Witcher, of all things (although that might just be the light hair, ponytail, and monster slaying aspect). In a trailer showing off dungeon and overworld gameplay, we see protagonist Vesper exploring the...
News Jun Kazama Is Finally Back in Tekken 8, and She Looks Amazing
New forest stage also revealed

News The Walking Dead PSVR2 Looks Generations Apart from Meta Quest 2
An insane upgrade
We know that PSVR2 is significantly more powerful than Meta Quest 2, and it should be: the headset is not only utilising cutting-edge tech, but it’s also powered by Sony’s new-gen PS5 console, which is obviously far more advanced than Meta’s built-in mobile chipset. Despite all that, however, the irritatingly named The...
News King Looks Like an Absolute Powerhouse in Tekken 8 Gameplay Trailer

News Pilot Your Own Airship in Steampunk Adventure Black Skylands on PS5, PS4
Balthier, eat your heart out
Ever wanted to live the carefree life of a sky pirate? We did, ever since playing Final Fantasy XII, although that game is less about sky piracy than it is about epic, world-spanning melodrama.
