Batman: Arkham Knight fans get some good news and bad today, with a new trailer showing the Batmobile transforming into its "Battle Mode", but also confirming that the game now isn't expected until 2015. Original tipped for a release on October 14th this year, the launch has been pushed back into the new year at an unspecified date.
The next entry in the Homefront line of games is set to be delivered in "The Revolution", a game previewed today by Crytek UK. This game’s first preview (announcement) trailer shows cenematics, but is indicative of what we’ll be seeing for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC in 2015. This game will almost certainly be detailed at length at E3 2014.
This morning Mortal Kombat X was introduced to the world as the premiere 2015 fighting game. This game will almost certainly be released to next-generation platforms like PlayStation 4, possibly Xbox One, and PC, and will be developed by NetherRealm Studios. Today we see the next generation.
The first image of the next Hitman has been delivered, and it’s conceptually driven. While we won’t see real gameplay or anything outside of conceptual work for quite some time, the folks at IO-Interactive have let it be known that they are, indeed, at work. They’re also so far away from a game delivery that they won’t be showing anything off at E3 2014.
This week the folks responsible for upgrading the Xbox One’s features have let it be known that there will soon be a real-deal screenshot ability.

In Quantum Break, the game is about heroes, the show is about villains. The folks at Remedy Entertainment have shown off a teaser trailer for their new hero game Quantum Break today, sparking interest once again in the idea that the public would buy the Xbox One just to have one title. This game was first teased at E3 2013 - and here, one year later, we see what it’s all about.
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.
This month an Xbox One software upgrade brings on the ability to work with an external hard drive. With this ability, users have been testing multiple different types of drives to see which work quickest. Inside the standard Xbox One is a Samsung 500GB 5400 RPM (M8 ST500LM012) working with the machine’s standard SATA2 connection - with USB 3.0 connecting your drive to the board, providing one reason why this external method may be significantly quicker - or so it would seem.
