No Man’s Sky comes under investigation for Steam page advertising

Whether you love or hate No Man's Sky, there's no denying that it's gone through a controversial launch. Shortly after the game released, there were a fair number of players and commentators criticizing the lack of advertised features in the game, and in fact, the game's Steam page still displays pre-release promotional materials that show off features which never made it into the final game. Those trailers and screenshots have caught the attention of the UK-based Advertising Standards Authority, which has revealed that it is investigating claims of misleading marketing.

Wasteland 3 invites you to explore frozen Colorado with a friend

Given the the immense crowdfunding success of Wasteland 2, it was a pretty safe assumption that we'd someday see a Wasteland 3. That possibility became a reality today, with developer inXile officially unveiling Wasteland 3 and dropping a few details on what to expect.

Destiny 2 said to be coming to PC in addition to consoles

When the original Destiny launched, some PC players were dismayed to see that the game wouldn't be coming to their platform of choice.

New Battlefield 1 trailer previews single-player campaign

It's hard to avoid talk of Battlefield 1 ever since the game's multiplayer beta wrapped up, but one topic that's been notably missing from discussion is the game's single-player campaign. While multiplayer tends to be the primary focus of games like these, many of them do ship with a single-player component for players who prefer a little story with their gunplay, and Battlefield 1 will be no exception. Today, we're getting a look at that campaign in the newest Battlefield 1 trailer.

Blizzard is killing its Battle.net branding after 20 years of use

If you've been playing Blizzard games like World of Warcraft, Diablo, Starcraft, Hearthstone, and the recent Overwatch over the years, you know the name Battle.net as being synonymous with the developer's own.

There are a lot of people out there looking forward to Civilization VI (or, on the other hand, hoping for a return to form after the stumble that was Beyond Earth), and ahead of its October 21 launch, Firaxis and 2K Games have unleashed the game's system requirements.

Technically, the curtains were already halfway closed when the developers of the fan-made project decided to pull the game, but now they've announced that they're ending support for Pokemon Uranium as well.
