That being $199 USD. The motion controllers for the Oculus Rift will also add room-scale VR functionality with the addition of extra sensors that will also run you $79 apiece. Costly sure, but we're talking about VR. The announcement came at the Oculus Connect conference held earlier today, an event that also saw Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg demonstrate an Oculus Rift version of Facebook Messenger.
The open world organised crime-based Mafia III is out today for PC and consoles, and with review copies being withheld until today's launch, you'll have to wait a little bit longer before the general critical response is known. But that hasn't stopped some negative feedback popping up due to the PC version being locked at 30fps. In a statement 2K has advised that a patch is on its way to unlock the frame-rate, but at launch PC gamers will have to make do with a mere 30fps.
Originally due for release alter this year the sequel to the surprise stealth-hit Styx: Master of Shadows is now headed to PC, PS4, and Xbox One Q1 2017. Called Styx: Shards of Darkness, the delay is due to a development shift from Unreal Engine 3 to the newer, fancier, Unreal Engine 4. And with the debut gameplay trailer we get a glimpse at the new engine. Plus, see what happens when an elf unwittingly drinks goblin puke.
But, we don't know exactly who or what they'll be. In a recent Developer Update, game director Jeff Kaplan noted that one of the new heroes "is very far along" and that we'll get to see them sooner rather than later.

And it's well on its way to reaching the $2.75 million funding target, with over $2 million raised in less than 24 hours.

As a party-based RPG, developer inXile Entertainment has also released a small look at potential gameplay.
Right, so you might recall that Bethesda kind of gave up on bringing mods to the PlayStation 4 version of Fallout 4. And in a statement, hinted that the problem was on Sony's end. To many fans this left a bad taste in their mouth. Had Sony forgot about gamers? The answer is, of course not. And today Bethesda has announced that Skyrim Special Edition will launch on PlayStation 4 with mod support*. But, with the added bonus of an asterisk. Did you see it there?
At one stage, much like with many high profile game releases, there were whispers that a potential Gears of War movie was in the works. During a livestream event ahead of next week's Gears of War 4 launch, Microsoft dropped word that they were partnering with Universal Studios to bring Gears of War to the big screen. Assuming of course that the big screen can handle that much bicep.
Every day the eSports scene is growing in Australia, and helping lead that charge is the OPL and Riot's League of Legends. Today it was announced that pro LoL team Dire Wolves had received a significant investment from sports business group, Guinevere Capital. The investment is part an ongoing trend of traditional sports businesses or individuals buying into the fast-growing eSports space, but more significantly, it's the first major move of its kind to take place locally in Australia.
Sometimes a fancy apartment, a yacht, a fleet of supercars, a crew of thugs in suits, and more cash than you know what to do with just won't cut it. Sometimes all you want to do is don a leather jacket, get a neck tattoo, open up a motorcycle club, cook some meth, and just hang out. Play darts, arm-wrestle. And now thanks to the new Bikers DLC for GTA Online, you can do all of that. And more.
