Rise of the Tomb Raider hits PS4 with VR support on October 11

Rise of the Tomb Raider is coming to the PlayStation 4 on October 11, Square Enix announced today, and it’ll be bringing PlayStation VR support with it.

Star Wars Battlefront gets a new offline mode next week

Star Wars Battlefront is great if you enjoy both Star Wars and online shooting games, but it feels incomplete and the offline gameplay is particularly terrible. That will change (a tiny bit) next week with the addition of a new offline mode called "Skirmish."

All of this will lead up to the “Death Star” DLC set to release in September.

Pokemon GO players have stumbled upon dead bodies, tripped and wrecked, continued to play while hurt, and have even, in some places, been lured and mugged. One of the more harrowing stories to surface, though, is that of two men who walked off a 75ft+ cliff while hunting monsters. The incident took place in Encinitas, California at a beach said to be close to San Diego. They were, as you’d expect, distracted by trying to catch nearby Pokemon.

DOOM, the remake, now supports the new Vulkan graphics API

DOOM, the remake, now supports the new Vulkan graphics API

Doom, the very first one, was widely regarded to have pushed the boundaries of PC gaming and graphics of that era, with its 3D graphics, 3D maps, networked multiplayer, and mature rating. Ever since then, id Software has been carrying on that tradition, like with RAGE's use of megatextures. Now under the ownership of Bethesda Softworks, that tradition continues with the announcement that the reincarnation of DOOM is now the first triple-A game to support the brand new Vulkan API, promising to deliver even better framerates, especially on slightly weaker hardware.
