While the Lord of the Rings franchise focussed on a small group of people changing the world in a big way, The Hobbit was more about the group (at least up to a point). This isn't something that's been lost on the team behind LEGO The Hobbit either, as they've added new ways for you to work together with your "buddies." Warner Brothers today released a new trailer showcasing these new abilities, and the importance of your group.
Warner Brothers yesterday officially announced Batman: Arkham Knight for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The next-gen only detective game will be a sequel to Arkham City, and will be the last game in the series. Arkham Knight will take place in Gotham City proper this time around, and you'll have access to the Batmobile to help you move from place to place. You'll be able to get into the Batsuit once again this year.
There are a sizeable group of people who are hoping to one day play the game they loved last-gen in an improved, HD Remaster-Plus style on either the Xbox One or the PlayStation 4. It happened with Tomb Raider, it almost happened with Skyrim, and now it might just happen with the Mass Effect Trilogy.
Last year, there was discussion of a sci-fi title in development at God of War developer Sony Santa Monica. It had been in development for quite a while, and even managed to get a mention in God of War: Ascension (in the guise of the above picture). Following news that Sony have laid off around fifty people from the studio, it's also been revealed that that game and the entire IP surrounding it has been cancelled.
After quite a lot of rumours, and a leaked PS+ list for next month, it seems much of it has been confirmed. Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition has been announced for PlayStation 4 over on the Asian PlayStation Blog, along with the reveal that it'll be free on PlayStation plus. No more information is given, but I imagine we'll be finding out the specifics over the next few days.
Konami have today announced that Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes will receive a pre-emptive price cut on new-gen consoles. After weeks of people complaining about how short it apparently is, many were doubting the value of a two hour, £40 game. Today that price has been reduced to an RRP of £30.
Titanfall is an Xbox One exclusive (unless you have an Xbox 360 or PC). That's been a source of quiet disappointment for a lot of Sony-focussed arcade shooter fans with PlayStation 4s. It should be presumed that the biggest deciding factor behind the whole thing would be money, and yet Neogaf used Famousmortimer offers a slightly different look of things. Apparently the reason Titanfall ended up on Xbox One is because Sony was too quiet about what their plans for this generation were going ...
A new patch for Call of Duty: Ghosts on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 has been released. The patch contains a variety of different updates and fixes that should make playing on either Sony console that much more enjoyable. Fans will be especially happy for certain improvements to stability which has, until recently, been quite a hit or miss affair. There are also a few Ghosts updates for each specific console, so if there's been a problem on your device of choice, it might be worth ...
Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes has gone from being a must-buy title to something that's massively controversial. So negative has recent reaction been that series creator and director Hideo Kojima has commented, trying to calm angry fans ahead of the release date next month.
An industry insider has revealed some of the upcoming games Sony supposedly has ready to reveal between now and E3. Take it with a pinch of salt - no "insider" ever manages to be 100% right all of the time, perhaps because internal projects are cancelled and shifted around so many times behind closed doors - but it does seem rather like a wishlist for the PlayStation community.
