Venus is a lush, deadly getaway in Destiny

Destiny might not have as many planets as, say, No Man's Sky, but that doesn't mean much if the planets themselves are large, detailed and fun to explore. We've seen Earth, a little bit of Mars and now Bungie has released the first look at a lush, tropical Venus.

League of Legends sets Gnar free for everyone

Riot Games have been teasing their new champion for nearly a month now. The long lost relative to Teemo seems like an interesting new addition to the League of Legends roster. That’s probably because he changes from a cute little critter into a raging monster in no time at all.

Gamescom 2014 – Shadow Realms is a new RPG from BioWare

BioWare has been teasing their new IP for weeks now, with the reveal taking place during EA’s press conference at Gamescom this morning. It’s an RPG, it’s online and it’s multiplayer. This is Shadow Realms.

Gamescom 2014 – FIFA is all about authenticity

As expected, EA Sports is taking up a big portion of EA’s Gamescom conference this morning. When you think of EA Sports though, FIFA is usually top of the list. This year, the world’s biggest football title is all about authenticity.

League of Legends doesn’t try hard enough to take your money

If you’re in the business of playing a MOBA there’s a pretty good chance you’re playing League of Legends. The free-to-play online title which launched before Dota 2 still has a respectable fan base, but one Ubisoft analyst says other studios shouldn’t learn how to make money from Riot Games.

League of Legends is getting a new champion soon

It's been a while since Riot teased a new champion for their extremely popular MOBA, League of Legends. Before I was bitten by the DOTA bug, I was a massive LoL player, and I remember champion releases being a rather frequent thing. Riot could be getting back into that, with another Teemo-like character.

The Crew Beta Preview: Drive angry… with friends

The Crew made it really difficult for me to even start playing. This week’s beta was definitely a test rather than just a chance for players to get in on some racing action early. Issues aside, I finally got to play through a sizeable chunk of what The Crew has to offer, and the Ubisoft open-world formula is immediately recognisable.

New screens and hairy multiplayer details arrive for Bayonetta 2

I don’t think there’ll ever be another game development studio like Platinum games. And that’s a good thing. This is a studio that even when it fires a dud, manages to turn the mundane into a galaxy-level extinction event. Bayonetta was one such game that went over the top, came back around, and did several more loops through the insanity wheel. And the sequel wants you to share that madness with friends.

The 50 EA games that’ll go offline next month

We’ve told you previously that GameSpy’s closure has meant that a host of games will be going offline, perhaps, for perpetuity. Those games include the EA published Crysis games, and the recently-on-Steam-sale Star Wars Battlefront 2. Here’s a list of 48 more EA games that’ll have their online functionality severed at the end of next month.

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.

H1Z1 is a free to play, massively multiplayer Zombie game

I’m a huge Walking Dead fan but I’ve noticed in recent months that the number of fellow fans have been dropping like flies and the grumblings about zombies in games have been getting louder.

Destiny drops new details, screens

Many Bothans died to bring us this new information about the interstellar game Destiny. Seriously, what’s with the Bothans and dying all the time? Anyway, check out some new screenshots and details on the game while I sweep these corpses up of Bothans who died to bring me my lunch.

GTA: Online Spring update. Heists confirmed!

It’s finally happening! Heists are confirmed in the next GTA:Online update!

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.

Ghost Recon Phantoms arrives in April

It’s alive, it’s alive! There’s been sparse news on Ubisoft’s free to play shooter in recent months, with some fearing that Ghost Recon Online was deader than disco. Turns out the game has been given a new lease of life, and will be known as Ghost Recon Phantoms.
