That dinosaur game works in VR with Oculus Rift

ARK: Survival Evolved is announced to be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam for PCs with Oculus Rift support. This game was first revealed in incognito mode earlier this month, and just this week was shown to the public with support for virtual reality headsets.

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate gameplay trailer tells all pre-alpha release

Ubisoft releases the first trailer for Assassin's Creed Syndicate, a game based in London at the dawn of the modern era.

Castlevania creator crowdfunds new game, coming to PC, PS4, Xbox One

Kickstarter and its ilk have become dream makers for game developers, not just the occasional brilliant indie piece but even legends returning to their former glory. While that has been mostly the case in the West, the East is somewhat still catching up to the trend. We've seen Mighty No. 9 from Keiji Inafune of Rockman (Mega Man in the US) fame kick off in 2013.
