It's strange but we're at a point now where a videogame movie tie-in is a pretty rare thing. A decade or so ago this wasn't the case, as most major films had their videogame versions. And they were usually pretty forgettable. Anyway, the new all-ladies Ghostbusters reboot is coming to cinemas in July, and Activision will be releasing a game right along side it called Ghostbusters, on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
Available now on Steam, PlayStation Network, and the Microsoft Store, the Open Beta for Gearbox's Battleborn is now, err, open for business. With access to two story missions, seven heroes, and a couple of competitive modes, this is your chance to dive in and become a galactic hero. Well, for a few days at least. So if you do decide to give it a spin, let us know what you think!
The PC release of Quantum Break from Remedy and Microsoft hasn't exactly been smooth sailing, with a lot of the issues stemming from the fact that UWP and Windows 10 isn't all that friendly to big games. But even outside of these issues Remedy has addressed a number of the problems players have been facing in a new forum post. Including the usual stuff like stuttering and frame-rate issues to the completely bizarre, like having no exit button on the main menu.
Starting this weekend (Saturday, April 16 at 2:00am AEST through to Sunday, April 17 at 2:00pm AEST to be exact) Overwatch will be opening up to more players for a new round of stress testing. Outside of an open beta this is the next best thing. So if you haven't had the chance to spend time with Blizzard's fantastic new hero shooter here's your chance. Although, the only real way to know if you've been selected is if you sit there and watch to see if an Install button on the Overwatch tab in the Battle.net application appears sometime tomorrow.
The next DLC expansion headed to Star Wars Battlefront as part of the Season Pass, called Cloud City, will naturally bring Lando Calrissian to the roster of playable heroes. On the Imperial side is the bounty hunter Dengar, who if you remember your Star Wars correctly, was present at the Bounty Hunter Reunion Party that Darth Vader held on his Super Star Destroyer in The Empire Strikes Back.
Out in two months time, the ambitious and mind-boggling No Man's Sky still feels like a mystery. To quote a Victorean-era chimney sweep who has time-traveled to 2016 and caught a glimpse at the wonders of modern technology, "Here now, what's all this then?" In a new play-through with IGN, No Man's Sky developer Sean Murray digs a little deeper (literally, as the planets have cave systems!) to give us a closer look at what you can do in the game.
Less than a month ago we got word that Sony were closing down Evolution Studios, creators of hit racing games like Motorstorm and Driveclub. Today, in a bit of good news it looks like the UK developer has been acquired by Codemasters, who themselves are known pretty much for making great racing games. So, just like a robot from an '80s Japanese cartoon, they're joining forces to form one of the biggest names in racing.
After the events of the last zombie outing in Call of Duty: Black Ops III, one that saw the series return to the WWII setting, the action moves to the Pacific Islands with the next chapter 'Zetsubou No Shima'. Due for release next week for PS4, and next month for other platforms, Activision has released a new zombie-fied trailer for the next DLC expansion 'Eclipse'.
And there's a handy info-graphic covering all the numerous changes, big and small. From the removal of the minimap, to a stamina bar that requires food and water to replenish, penalties for fast travel, plus companions that aren't invincible killing machines, the new Survival Mode fundamentally changes the way Far Cry Primal is played.
