With the second semi final between the Chiefs and Dire Wolves on tonight from 6pm AEST. We've been told that just like that film starring a super old Rocky versus a super old Raging Bull, it'll be an interesting grudge match. With much younger competitors of course. We've got the live-stream link inside. Well, after you click on 'Read More'.
After a weekend of rainbows and sixes and sieges, because Rainbow Six Siege just wrapped up another successful free-to-play weekend, some new content is coming up. Starting with a free map, Favela, dropping tomorrow. We'd like to say it's themed around the upcoming Olympics in Rio, but you know, this looks way more violent. And intense. Which you'd expect from something called Skull Rain.
Last time we checked in on Galaxy in Turmoil, the fan made Star Wars Battlefront project, it had secured a distribution deal with Steam. As a free-to-play title. Which many thought might be enough for the project to, you know, somehow get released without any interference from Lucasfilm or EA. Yeah, not anymore.
Yep. If leaked PlayStation trophy lists are anything to go by. And they are! So we're saying it loud and clear, expect to see the critically acclaimed* indie hit Inside on your PlayStation 4 console's in the near future. How near? Well, we don't know. We're not magicians. Jeez. UPDATE: Confirmed for end of August!
Even though Driveclub developer Evolution Studios may be no more, the studio looks to be getting a victory lap with the announcement of Driveclub VR. Which will be a launch title for PlayStation VR. The new version of the game will be a full game too and not a demo. And in addition to VR and 3D audio support, the racer will also include a few new tracks.
Even though Cortana is currently only listed as being available in the UK and US. With the update starting to roll out today, for Xbox One users it seems to be a pretty big one. With a revamped Game Collection screen, integration with the Windows 10 Store, background music functionality and some much needed UI improvements all included. In addition to the Xbox One, the Xbox App for Windows 10 is also getting an update.
With a $19 million (USD) plus prize pool on offer, the biggest ever for an esports event, next week's Dota 2 International is shaping up to be the biggest event that we know of on the increasingly packed esports calendar. And you know what, it'll be a pretty cool alternative to all the chaos surrounding the Olympics in Rio.
Embracing the fun, and funk, Hearthstone's next adventure One Night in Karazhan gives players an invitation to the hottest spot in the Eastern Kingdoms. Where the extravagant Medivh has spared no expense to host the Azeroth party to end all Azeroth parties. A time for feasts, Opera, and plenty of slapped bass lines. It's great to see Hearthstone continue to carry the torch for the lighter side of Warcraft, with the party scheduled to begin August 12.
We know a lot of people have been digging the single-player aspect of DOOM, it's a game that captures the right kind of old-school action meets modern sensibilities. On the multiplayer front the game may not have been as universally beloved right away, but thanks to the impressive SnapMap feature and a bunch of updates there's always a reason to check it out. Like a new update dropping today that adds the classic capture-the-flag mode, called Exodus, into the mix.
