PC gamers have been able to pre-load games for ages. Buy a game on Steam, well ahead of release, download the files, and you’re able to play the game as soon as the clock strikes midnight. It’s the sort of stuff that’s made midnight launches irrelevant. Now, that feature is available on your PlayStation 4..though it’s limited to just two handfuls of games right now.
The next iteration of the Unity engine, Unity 5, is available for pre-ordering sometime today at the Unity store.
I thoroughly enjoyed The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing. It's a quirky and fun take on the ARPG genre, and I'm excited for the second installment. Now, we have a launch date, and a nifty way to compare the second game to the original.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: No other game on the market knows how to make a kill-shot as gruesomely satisfying as the Sniper series. Most of the gameplay may not be up to scratch, but when you bunker down and take aim? It’s pure magic that comes out of that barrel. So when is the game out? Soon actually.
It’s almost time, oh faithful crusaders of the Blizzard brand. Diablo III expands like a waist line during the festive season with the Reaper of Souls add-on this year. And if you pre-order it, you’ll get a bonus or two.
Will it or won’t it? That’s the question that plenty of Grand Theft Auto fans on PC have asked since the fifth game was revealed, promoted and pimped out on console last year. Rockstar has kept dead quiet on the matter so far, with nary a hint of anything being done to bring the game over to the PC platform. But PC gamers could be in for a surprise, as early as this Friday.
Yes the rumour that simply will not die is back and just as unsubstantiated as ever. This time the rumours are being stocked by Amazon’s German and French operations who have both listed the PC versions for pre-order in the last 24 hours.
[Update] And it's back to R6299. Bummer. Kalahari are claiming it was a mistake but we were notified of it by Kalahari so yeah who knows what just happened here.
Original Story Follows
The PlayStation 4 is being released in South Africa on December 6 this year, for a wallet-destroying price of R6299 – but if you act now, you can shave five hundred Randelas off the price by ordering the thing from Kalahari.
Codemasters has revealed all the greasy details on F1 2013 and its pre-order editions. Unlike the Perelli tyres it won’t disappoint.
