Strange Brigade sizes up E3 in a stiff-upper-lipped trailer

Mummies! They're like zombies, but easier to clean up once you're finished with them, at least according to Strange Brigade's new gameplay trailer. The cooperative 1930s-set shooter isn't far off now - due out at the end of August - but Rebellion have apparently got one last PR blitz in them before E3 swallows all and everything blurs into one nightmare gaming haze. Within, a…

Hitman 2 is out this November, bigger, bolder, murderier

Much like Agent 47, Hitman 2's approach wasn't nearly as stealthy as it hoped to be, but the end results aren't to be sniffed at. Eagle-eyed internet people spotted its logo a few days back, but today Io Interactive officially announced the sequel to 2016's episodic murder-sandbox. Unlike the previous game, this one will be released all in one go (with plans for later expansions)…

E3 press conferences: who what where when why whom

E3, the event "as close as this industry gets to Eurovision", officially begins on Tuesday. Thousands of developers, members of the press, and gawkers will descend upon Los Angeles for the four-day trade show, full of demos, presentations, and questions like "How many guns does this have?" E3 unofficially begins before then, mind, with publishers and platform holders livestreaming presentations from Saturday. Most of the…

E3 opens its doors to the public with 15,000 tickets

Obviously we at RPS must have made E3 look so glamorous that everyone wants a look-in. I mean, I assume that that's the reason the Electronic Entertainment Expo [official site] is offering tickets to the general public for this year's show - all of our tweeting from press conferences and the mention of pancakes the size of pillows at local diners and that story about…

Resident Evil 7 Goes First-Person, Out January 2017

"Capcom has heard fans’ masochistic cries for a Resident Evil game far more terrifying than anything that has come before it," said the publisher shortly after revealing Resident Evil 7 Biohazard [official site] during Sony's E3 press conference yesterday. In what is a pretty radical step for the series, it seems this one's fully first-person and "draws from the series’ roots of atmospheric survival horror,"…

Look, Both Hands: Superhot VR Gets Gameplay Trailer

A couple of weeks back, we learned that time-manipulating FPS SUPERHOT [official site] was in-line for an Oculus Rift-powered virtual reality edition. Speaking on Reddit, SUPERHOT Team's PR person Szymon Krukowski explained that the hardware's as yet unreleased motion controllers are tied to the game's start-stop mechanics and it all sounded pretty wonderful. Now SUPERHOT VR has a trailer and, yes, it looks every bit…

Skyrim Special Edition: Free To Owners Of Original

Skyrim doesn't feel old enough to have a shiny new edition with enhanced bells and whistles, but that's exactly what's coming on October 28th. It'll be released on current-gen consoles as well as PC, and if you own either the Legendary Edition of the original, or the base game plus all DLC bought separately, you'll receive a free upgrade to the new hotness. You can…

Arkane Announce Prey: Immersive Horror Sim

When Raphaël Colantonio took to the stage at Bethesda's E3 showcase, I figured he'd be talking about Dishonored 2. He's one of the creative directors of the studio, alongside Harvey Smith, and we knew we were going to see more of their stealthy sequel. Instead, Colantonio said he'd be working on something else, with a second team within the studio. A game in the same…

Fallout Shelter Coming To PC & Shelter Construction Coming To Fallout 4

Fallout Shelter is the post-apocalyptic management game that Bethesda slid onto tablets and cleverphones last year. I haven't played it myself but know people who spend commutes and late nights in front of the telly tapping and swiping as they help their survivors to thrive. Or exploit them for kicks. The game is coming to PC in July and DLC for big momma Fallout 4…

Twisting Time And Space: Dishonored 2 Gameplay Trailer

Bethesda's E3 showcase wrapped up this evening (LA time) and I was there, in an enormous hangar, as new things were announced (Prey! Quake!) and more details of the games we've already played or heard about were released. The pick of the crop was Dishonored 2 [official site], which had that rarest of things: an E3 showing that involved an actual dev walkthrough of a…

EA Want To Regain “Trust Of The PC Gamer”, Not At E3

As reported by MCV, the publisher is attempting to correct their reputation after the wrongs of the recent past, by trying to make sure games have smooth launches and that Origin is useful to people.

A viking, a samurai and a knight walk into a bar. The bartender says, "Is this some kind of videogame?" and the knight replies, "Yes. Yes it is."

Yu Suzuki On Board For Shenmue 3 Kickstarter

When Microsoft made the announcement that they'd be adopting some kind of Early Access process for the Xbone, I joked that one of the other major publishers would use their conference to announce a Kickstarter. And so.. Last night, while I was catching up on sleep after a frantic weekend, Sony invited Shenmue director Yu Suzuki onstage to announce that they would be funding and…

Remember Citadel? The New Tacoma Trailer Does

Tacoma [official site] - AKA wot the Gone Home studio are doing right now - isn't necessarily channeling System Shock or 2001, but a short new trailer revealed during the Microsoft E3 conference suggests there's something a little bit off about the AI on board the titular station. Steve Gaynor presented live onstage at the conference and spoke about how Gone Home had explored the…

Fallout 4 Release Date Announced

Nuclear winter is coming. I don't know if that wordplay worked given the Boston setting for Fallout 4 [official site] seems pretty balmy but you'll have to make your peace with it because it's the best this jetlag will produce. As for *when* it's coming, the answer is 10 November, 2015. Fallout 4 was the big finale game at the Bethesda E3 conference, with Todd…

Matters Of The Heart: The Sims 4

The on-stage presentation for The Sims 4 at E3 was a sinister piece of work. Forget your survival horror games and your gore-tastic third-person monster-choppers, this is the most disturbing video shown at the entire event. It begins with simple marketing buzz-speak - "In previous games you controlled the mind and body of your Sims. In the Sims 4, for the first time, you control…

Hot Rods And Vroom Sticks: Project CARS

Project CARS may not have the open America and sightseeing adventures of The Crew, but it's a supremely attractive game. With a variety of motorsports and historic goals, the game sees your driver attempting to take a place in the hall of fame. To do that, you'll have to drive really really really really fast. Make sure not to crash as well, I guess, but…
