When it was first announced a lot of people, including us, were wondering why a sequel to the excellent Total War: Warhammer was coming so soon. Thinking more along the lines of how different could it be. Well, in a new video that showcases the new campaign map with some great narration we can put those concerns to bed. Total War: Warhammer II looks very different to the first game. And just as impressive.
Even though it was the opener for Sony's E3 presentation this year, what we got was basically an Uncharted: The Lost Legacy trailer. Which, admittedly looked impressive, pales in comparison to the 9 minute gameplay demonstration released today. Taken from the E3 demo, it solidifies Naughty Dog's exceptional skill at creating stunning environments and action-packed set pieces.
With the streaming giant becoming the home for streaming esports competitions for top Blizzard games -- like Overwatch, Heroes of the Storm, Hearthstone and Starcraft II. And as part of the two-year deal, Twitch Prime members will be able to sync their accounts and receive special in-game goodies -- including a gold Overwatch loot box that will contain at least on legendary item.

The Elder Scrolls Online receives its first full-sized expansion and takes players back to the iconic island of Vvardenfell - first seen in the 2002 classic The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. With a new introduction sequence and story to experience, and a new class to play, we investigate this mushroom-filled island of magic and mystery to bring you our review.
To celebrate its independence as a development studio, whilst retaining the rights to the HITMAN franchise, Io-Interactive has just made the opening to its recent episodic HITMAN game free to play on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

Which in Australian is ‘June 28 mate’, or ‘next Wednesday cobber’. Yeah, so right around the corner. Announced at BlizzCon last year, with the character going into beta a short while ago, the Necromancer class is finally making its way to Diablo III. Earlier than expected too, with the original plan being to release the new character class sometime in the second half of this year. Corpse explosions for everyone!
For Sony to have closed out its pre-E3 press conference with Insomniac's Spider-Man speaks some volume about where they feel the product is at, but we're not so convinced. At E3 we also had a chance to catch a (almost identical) behind closed doors presentation of the game, while also being able to speak with one of the game's key developers about our very concerns. Were they able to right our rocky Spider-Man boat with their answers?
Announced all the way back in 2014, as Hunt: Horrors of the Gilded Age, Crytek's latest game sounded a lot like Left 4 Dead. Fast forward to E3 2017 and Hunt: Showdown re-emerged to become one of the sleeper hits of the show. With incredible visuals that evoke a sense of dread similar to Resident Evil 7, and an interesting mechanic that sees five teams of two navigate the world in an attempt to survive and fight all sorts of creatures and each other, this is now a game you should be keeping a close eye on.
Making its debut on the Ubisoft stage at E3, The Crew 2 is set to be a very different racing game to the first one even though it essentially provides the same setting -- an open world U.S.A. Giving players the opportunity to both explore and race with boats and planes in addition to cars is the first giveaway. With the second being a bright and vibrant arcade presentation that reminds us of the Forza Horizon series.
