Blizzard has been churning out a lot of coverage for their squad-based multiplayer shooter, Overwatch, over the past few weeks. We've already had a good look at a handful of characters in action, and so far they all look delightfully unique. Zenyatta looked particularly interesting, but that's up until I got a good look at Overwatch's most intriguing character - the British, time-warping heroine Tracer.

We're bound to see some (hopefully) awesome gameplay of Star Wars: Battlefront at E3 in a few weeks, and EA is rightly hyping things up considerably. Battlefront is going to feature a similar Hero system to older games, with Darth Vader and Boba Fett already confirmed as playable characters. But what about some of the good guys?

Star Wars: Battlefront is highly anticipated, but many were worried it would be a Star Wars skinned Battlefield. There're a lot of differences though, and they go way deeper than pure cosmetic or lore characteristics.

It's the running joke of the Star Wars franchise, but come later this year you too will know how it feels to be an inaccurate, inadequate Stormtrooper. DICE's Battlefront reboot is checking a lot of the right boxes (and missing a few), but the inclusion of a first-person view has had many worried about how combat will work in the multiplayer shooter. Fear not recruits, because it's not changing at all.

Even though the biggest discussion factor behind Star Wars Battlefront  has been how the game will probably have nowhere near as much content available at launch as the original games did in earlier generation, I’m still kind of cautiously optimistic for the upcoming reboot. As far as Star Wars games go, I’ve got massive confidence in DICE creating the prettiest game in the franchise thus far, and then fixing it up with monthly updates down the line to look even purdier. And while discussing the upcoming game, DICE may have just leaked that there’ll be 12 multiplayer maps within which to support the sister-kissing resistance known as the Rebel Alliance.

Of course Project CARS has multiplayer. I mean, we knew that it would be a gorgeous and impressive racing game, and what's the point of racing if you can't brag about being better than your friends? Needless to say, you'll want all your favorite features, and it looks like Project CARS knows exactly what gamers want.

Despite its cute, colourful exterior, Splatoon might just be one of the more hardcore games Nintendo has decided to bet on. The online shooter shares most of its DNA with traditional multiplayer tropes, including various different weapons and a bunch of customisable items. We’ve only seen a handful of them to date, but that changed with a screenshot explosion last night.

Destiny can be played on your own. But like so many games lately, it is an experience best played with others. If you don't have a group of friends to play with on a regular basis, the game will match you with others. However, even the studio knows that matchmaking isn't ideal.

Bad cops, bad cops, Battlefield Hardline cops are on the take! But what do you expect for the money they make? Whether in a car or on a horse, we don't mind using excessive force! Bad cops, bad cops, Bad cops, bad cops..

It feels like an eternity since EA and DICE revealed that they were working on a brand new Star Wars: Battlefront title. Considering this is probably the most requested sequel from Star Wars fans everywhere, the wait has been excruciating to say the least. But that's all coming to an end in less than a month!

Evolve has a distinct and unique approach to online multiplayer, and it's the reason the title stood out every time I got my hands on it. I think everyone knew that its greatest strength would also be its biggest barrier to entry, but I never expected it to be this bad. Evolve has been fighting an uphill battle on PC especially, and it's one that's not being turned around either.

Mortal Kombat X keeps getting better and better everytime NetherRealm Studios decides to show it off. To cap off last week Ed Boon and Co. cushioned a last-gen delay with the reveal of Jason Voorhees as a guest fighter. Problem is, it might not be the only bad news for the soon to launch title.

Bloodborne is coming and may just being the PS4 exclusive that everyone was hoping for. Now Sony has revealed some new screens for the gory death-fest, as well as some added information about co-op, PvP and PS+ requirements.

Destiny is pretty much several games in one package. On the one hand, you’ve got the pseudo-RPG mechanics intertwined with the shoot ‘em up nature of this beast. On the other hand, you’ve got an arena shooter in the Crucible, a mode that is home to some deadly-skilled players. And on the third hand derived from a terrible mutation, you’ve got the waiting game, as Destiny will be changing once again with the latest playlist update.

The Order: 1886, according to YouTubers who’ve uploaded the game to the internet, will last you about 5 hours; and that’s including the game’s maligned interactive cut-scenes. For many, that’s just not good enough; when throwing down $60 (or R799), people expect a game to last them a good few hours more than that. The thing is, those YouTubers have intentionally blitzed through the entire game for as short a run as possible.
