Standalone tale Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is out this week, August 23, for PlayStation 4 with a RRP of $54.95 AUD. In it players will take on the roles of Chloe Frazer and Nadine Ross in a Drake-free adventure in search for a priceless relic – the Tusk of Ganesha. And in classic Naughty Dog style, it looks incredible. Like, seriously.
It was a rough launch for BioWare's highly anticipated Mass Effect: Andromeda, with the developer spending the post-launch period fixing a whole slew of character and facial animations. In a new post the studio confirms that, "Update 1.10 was the final update for Mass Effect: Andromeda. There are no planned future patches for single-player or in-game story content".
With a number of Xbox One S 500GB bundles offering the console and three games for only $349.00. Yeah, awesome value. And, err, a great "gift" for Father's Day. Which it is, but also great for everyone else too. After you choose the Minecraft, Battlefield 1, or Forza Horizon 3 base Xbox One S models, you then get to choose two additional free games.
With the Xbox One X set to launch worldwide on November 7, Microsoft has taken the opportunity to create a very special launch edition called the 'Project Scorpio Edition'. With the words "Project Scorpio" inscribed on both the console and the controller in subtle green, it's a very cool and minimal design that should please those that have been waiting a long time to get their hands on an Xbox One X.
Where Dota 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive fans across Australia and New Zealand can qualify for the global esports tournament brought to you by ASUS. Which, has a prize pool of $500,000 USD.

With Season 4 of the StarCraft II WCS ANZ competition set to conclude this weekend live at Sydney ESL Studios, Daniel 'Deth' Haynes brings us up to date with all the action so far.

With a release date planned for 2018, alongside the sequel to Jurassic World, Jurassic World Evolution will put players in charge of creating and managing their very own Jurassic World. Yeah, that's how it's being described. It's okay though, we're also telling ourselves that its a Jurassic Park simulator. Coming from Planet Coaster developer Frontier, this also has a very good chance of turning out to be, well, very good.
Time to flip the switch that puts your X-Wong's S-foils into attack position, because the long-awaited first-look at Star Wars Battlefront II's new Starfighter Assault mode is here! And this looks a lot bigger (and better) than the very simple version of ship-to-ship combat we got the first time around. Fighting among the Death Star 2.0 debris over Endor looks incredible.
On PC, developer Grinding Gear Games' Path of Exile is an excellent action-RPG. Drawing on many years of the genre's popularity, plus adding its own special flavour, it's a game that has grown from strength to strength since its 2013 debut. Add in a recent, and massive Fall of Oriath expansion, and Path of Exile is on the mind of many people. And now it's coming to Xbox One. Next week in fact!
