Check out more Rainbow Six Siege gameplay tonight

I absolutely adore Rainbow Six. Rainbow Six Vegas is still one of my favourite games to play co-operatively with a friend, and that’s what I’m hoping Siege really captures. We only got to see a single, short game during the Ubisoft press conference at E3, but there’ll be lots more on show tonight.

Crackdown will have a ‘mash-up’ of single-player and co-op modes

There are two kinds of great crack in the world. One of them will get you arrested if the cops catch you, while the other is an even more addictive digital drug that you can own legally at least. The first Crackdown game was pure sandbox fun, with an option that allowed another agent to hunt down some orbs with you. Expect the latest Crackdown to continue that tradition in a more seamless manner.

Evolve is being built with future DLC in mind

Evolve might be coming out in the worst possible month of the year, but it’s definitely one of the October games you should have your eyes glued to. I’ve played the competitive co-operative shooter twice now, and it always seems to work because of the well designed “individual” parts it brings together. These parts, it seems, also help with future additional content.

COD: Ghosts drops below Modern Warfare 3

Towards the end of November last year, I asked if the COD: Ghosts hype train had passed. COD fans had been telling me that everyone was migrating back to previous iterations in the franchise, but when I checked the numbers it wasn't true. Well, now it is.

Can Evolve truly be a success this year?

So I got my first hands on time with Evolve last night and it has got me thinking about my previous views on the game and whether or not, shock horror,  I was wrong.

Assassin’s Creed totally redesigned for co-op

One of the most requested features for Assassin's Creed over the years has been co-op play. It seems that it's not enough for players to don the murder-hood and stalk and kill all the things, they want to be stabby with friends. The newest Assassin's Creed does just that, but it wasn't a simple process.

Here’s what Sunset Overdrive’s multiplayer looks like in action

We’ve already touched upon how Sunset Overdrive’s gameplay feels like a technicolour romp of Tony Hawk and Gears of War, or playing video games on LSD. Something which I have never, ever done or forced a friend to do when he bought Resident Evil 2 I promise you can’t prove a damn thing. Well here’s some off-screen footage of my clumsy digits in action.

E3 2014 – Hands on with Evolve

A few months back, Geoff and I got some hands on time with Evolve. It made us happy and excited for the game. Now, I've gotten to play more, and I can officially tell the naysayers - there is nothing boring or repetitive about this gameplay.

Axis of Fun: Tropico 5 gets multiplayer

What could be more fun than ruling the world with an iron grip? Meeting up with your other dictator friends, of course! The latest installment of Tropico just got a whole lot more entertaining.

Multiplayer coming to Don’t Starve

For a long time, Klei has been saying that Don't Starve is for single player gaming only. However, in a recent post that will make the game's fans very happy, they have announced that multiplayer is coming. I can't wait.

Chicago is never safe in Watch Dog’s online modes

Watch Dogs may only be a few weeks away, but the game is still keeping a few secrets under wraps. One such section where details are few and far between, is in the multiplayer department. Originally, it was thought that savvy players could actually invade someone else’s game and make life hell for the less prepared. But it won’t be that hostile in cyberspace.

Watch Dogs details blowout

Multiplayer isn't for everyone, there are plenty of gamers who prefer to play on their own. However, it doesn't always have to be head to head combat to engage multiple players. Watch Dogs seems to have a ton of single player content, as well as some innovative multiplayer for those who are so inclined.

Evolving multiplayer: an interview with 2K

Yesterday, I got to play Evolve in an awesome preview event. You can read all about what Geoff and I thought of the game, and you should. We also talked with 2K's international producer, Iain Willows, and he had some cool tidbits to share with us.

Sniper Elite 3 details its multiplayer,co-op and customisation

Video games sometimes get unfairly painted as tutorials for how to commit all kinds of murder in the real world. And sometimes, that’s true. Because hands down, no other game on the market makes murder simulation as brutally satisfying as the Sniper Elite games. A sequel is on the way, this time taking place in Effrika. And beyond the single-player portion, the game sounds like it has a solid online mode as well.

The Division’s “Snowdrop engine” keeps impressing

Ubisoft’s Tom Clancy-branded online, multiplayer survival shooter RPG The Division is coming to PC and the new consoles later this year. It’s powered by Massive entertainment’s shiny new Snowdrop engine, which its creators say will allow smaller teams to make big, high-end AAA titles with relative ease.
