There’s nothing like a good free World War II massively multiplayer online game to start your early weekend off right. War Thunder is one of several of such games out on the market today - you’ll also find World of Warplanes (with airplanes) and World of Tanks (with tanks), but until now, no game with the whole shebang. While we’re still waiting for the troops, War Thunder Ground Forces brings on both tanks and planes in one single battlefield.
The game Battlefield Hardline has been made official by EA Games, and details have spilled which essentially detail the entire game, top to bottom. A gameplay demo session earlier this month with EA had players suggesting that there’d be a big "S.W.A.T." element to be dealt with. From what we’re seeing in a leaked gameplay video today, it doesn’t stop there - Battlefield Hardline is all about tossing you in on a war on crime.
Watch Dogs will make you fear for the Smart Chicago of tomorrow, but it won’t change the way you play video games today. Watch Dogs does a lot right in its packed set of features and oddities - including a new set of ways to roll with a multiplayer experience. It also forgets to carve new paths in many places other than online.
The Order 1886 is a game made to take part in the second wave of "next-generation" consoles: Xbox One and PlayStation 4 - exclusive to the latter, in this case. Today we’ve been treated to a PlayStation 4-specific bit of gameplay courtesy of Sony and the creators of the game Ready at Dawn. Straight from the PlayStation 4 version of The Order 1886, gameplay shows us a sort of steampunk-inspired landscape in which the player is invited to team up with users aiming to take on enemies from a 3rd-person perspective.
The following spoiler-filled video of Watch Dogs has been leaked this morning, likely by an intrepid reviewer aiming to get themselves kicked out of the gaming review circuit as fast as possible. What you’re going to see is the opening sequence as well as a few minutes of gameplay. This game is being played on an Xbox 360 and is said to be running at 720p at 30fps.
This week Ubisoft is kicking out all the stops when it comes to reminding the public about Watch Dogs. This game is a multi-platform release, coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC, and eventually Wii U as well. In addition to a full-powered launch trailer, Watch Dogs is the inspiration behind a three-part documentary called "Phreaked Out", all about real-world hacking.
The PlayStation 4 exclusive title DriveClub is being teased in a big way this week as both the developers and those lucky enough to have gotten early previews spout off. The first demonstration you’re going to see is one of several "4TheSenses" videos, this one called "Audio."
Minecraft for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PS Vita will land in August, alongside the PS3 version, with developer Mojang promising to salve the wait in the process. The game will cost $19.99 on each platform, though buying for PS Vita gets you the PS3 version too - or vice-versa - while those who have already bought Minecraft will be able to upgrade for a smaller amount.
Earlier this year it was suggested by IO Interactive that they’d be delivering a new Hitman game - likely within the year. This is a new "AAA Hitman game for PC and next-gen consoles," not the game "Hitman GO" released for mobile devices. It’s been tipped by an anonymous "insider" that this new game will be revealed - at least in part - by the end of May.
