Watch Dogs 2 is just under a month away, and Ubisoft is keen to restart the hype campaign for its latest open-world release.
To that end, Ubisoft has released a new trailer for a pre-order DLC-specific mission and outfit. In this mission, Marcus Holloway is tasked with hunting down the Zodiac Killer. Ubisoft hasn’t said whether or not they’ll be releasing later separately.
Take a look at what you can expect from the mission below:
The Zodiac Killer terrorized the people of San Francisco throughout 1969… and he was never caught.
That’s reflected in-game: another killer is on the loose, and taunting the local police force. Marcus, therefore, has decided to go after Zodiac, and a game of cat and mouse begins.
Watch Dogs 2 comes to the PC, Xbox One and PS4 on Nov. 15th.
It’s here! Following the game’s announcement on Tuesday after a short period of teasing, Rockstar Games has rolled out the Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer, and very pretty it is too. Presumably, showing entirely in-engine footage, the video shows vast plains, snaking rivers, muddy streets and the game’s seven lead characters riding together.
But who is the game’s lead protagonist? Will you be playing as one or all seven shown in the artwork released for the game? For now, we don’t know. Consider this a first taster with more solid details to come further down the line. For now, however, we have so many unanswered questions.
“Developed by the creators of Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption, Red Dead Redemption 2 is an epic tale of life in America’s unforgiving heartland. The game’s vast and atmospheric world will also provide the foundation for a brand new online multiplayer experience,” reads the game’s description.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is slated to launch in autumn 2017 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Check out the debut trailer below.
Voice actor Brian Bloom, the man responsible for the gravelly tones of Wolfenstein: The New Order’s BJ Blazkowicz has dropped some hints that a proper full-blooded sequel could be on the cards. The Old Blood, released last year, was more of a spin-off rather than a sequel.
Talking to TwoLeftSticks, Bloom responded to a question regarding another title in Machine Games’ rebooted Wolfenstein series, referencing the E3 2016 ‘Wolfenstein: New Colossus’ tease that Bethesda managed to sneak into its press conference.
“I’ll be safe with this answer. If you look at Bethesda’s E3 2016 lineup there was a title hinted at in a cool way. It sparked a bit of wildfire,” Bloom stated. “That subtle, very simple DOS language, going through the titles. Perhaps we’re working on that as we speak.”
Of course, Bloom, in being safe with his answer, doesn’t directly reference a new Wolfenstein game, but then again, he doesn’t exactly debunk it either. And with Machine Games keen to do a sequel to Wolfenstein: The New Order (as seen in our interview with Creative Director Jens Matthies below), this seems like a no-brainer.

Activision and Infinity Ward have released a trailer for the bonus map you’ll get for pre-ordering Cal of Duty: Infinite Warfare. It’s a re-imagined version of a Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 fan-favourite map, Terminal, relocated to a spaceport on the Moon.
As well as re-imagining MW2’s Terminal for Infinite Warfare, the bonus map promises “opportunities for new gameplay” while “visually raising the bar” and “playing true to the original”. You can check out the new Terminal map situated on the Moon in the trailer below.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare will be heading to Xbox One, PS4 and PC on 4th November. Meanwhile, a Multiplayer Beta for anyone who’s pre-ordered the game gets underway on Xbox One this weekend from 21st October 10am PDT/5pm GMT to 24th October 10am PDT/5pm GMT.
We’ve already covered what to expect in DOOM’s newest free expansion, but today Bethesda has released a trailer to really help visualise what you’re going to be getting from the next patch.
Take a look at the new content showcase below:
Free Update 4 is out now and introduces Arcade Mode, a new way to play DOOM’s campaign with all guns, runes and upgrades unlocked. You’re going to want to play through it smartly, though: there’s a leaderboard and scoring system that will be available for the world to see as you progress.
In PvP, there’s a new mode called Possession and a more classic free-for-all called Bloodrush. In Bloodrush, though, your respawn timer is linked to your Bloodrush meter – the more mental you go in-game, the quicker you’re going to come back.
For SnapMap users, the update delivers old-school DOOM modules, so you can really go to town on making your own classic DOOM levels.
Free Update 4 is out now.
Bandai Namco announced that the legendary assassin of Universe 6 that appears in the Dragon Ball Super anime – Hit – will be playable in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2.
Of course, fans in the West are still waiting for an official English-language release of Dragon Ball Super – so getting the likes of Hit and Goku Black in this game is kind-of like a sneak peak of formal Dragon Ball canon.
Take a look at the character in action in the newest trailer below:
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 will launch for PS4 and Xbox One on October 25th in North America, and October 28th in Europe.

Activision has announced that champion F1 driver Lewis Hamilton will feature in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, alongside fellow sporting guest star, UFC fighter Conor McGregor. Why? I have no idea. Nonetheless, Hamilton will assume the role of an engineer aboard UNSA warship the Retribution during the game’s campaign.
“I’ve been a Call of Duty fan for long time, so it’s an absolute honour to be part of this game and the franchise” said Hamilton. “The experience of being put into the game – from the facial scanning process to working with the team on the performance capture stage and just being able to meet the developers at the studio to get a glimpse at all the hard work that goes into the game – this has been an incredible experience.”
According to Infinity Ward’s Narrative Director Taylor Kurosaki, the studio are big fans of the F1 champ, who apparently “came to Call of Duty with the same approach he takes to the racetrack, determined to nail his performance – which he absolutely did!”
OK, then. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare launches on 4th November for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC
Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s Gameplay Launch Trailer Shows Off More Kit Harrington In Action ( War is Coming)
Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare is only three weeks away – but apparently that’s close enough to warrant a launch trailer for Activision.
The trailer’s only a minute long, but if you look closely enough, you can see snippets of gameplay we haven’t seen before, and it shows off a bit more of the game’s big celebrity actor – Kit Harrington – in action, too. Just be aware of all the PS4 marketing in the footage is due to Sony’s advertising deal with Activision.
Take a look below:
The trailer’s blurb reads as follows:
“Infinite Warfare delivers three unique game modes: Campaign returns to the gritty, large-scale war roots of the franchise, while boldly looking ahead. Multiplayer delivers the future of warfare, with many new gameplay innovations. And the cooperative Zombies mode takes players on a wild ride through a new storyline with unique gameplay features and mechanics.”
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare launches on 4th November.
