July may not be the most significant month for gaming releases, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t still plenty of great games to look forward to, no matter what system you’re playing on.

Here are the best games coming your way in July 2024! Final Fantasy XIV: Dawntrail (PC, PlayStation, Xbox Series…

One more week has gone by in the gaming world, and we’ve been diligently watching the gaming industry’s goings-on, ready to summarise them for you here as usual.

The season for exciting summer gaming shows came to a close this week, with the final show (not counting a couple of extra stragglers, as it were) airing on June 10th in the form of Ubisoft Forward. Generally speaking, gaming news tends to slow down around this time, as most publishers and big gaming companies have already revealed whatever they’re ready to reveal on their slates. That doesn’t mean nothing is happening, though, so without further ado, let’s take a look at what’s been going on this week in the world of gaming news. Ubisoft Forward is solid, but unremarkable…

Early June is a very important time indeed for the gaming calendar; it’s when the big companies host their presentations, showing off all the things they’ve got on their upcoming slates. Depending on your perspective, this summer gaming season was either a slam dunk or a washout.

This past week saw a Bank Holiday landing on Monday, which means the industry (in the UK, at least) collectively breathed a sigh of relief and took a brief break from its onslaught of news. Things quickly returned to normal, however, and it turned out that another eventful week of industry news was in store for us, with big Xbox Game Pass reveals, PlayStation showcases, and much more in store. Here’s our newest rundown of the week in gaming news! Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 will hit Xbox Game Pass on day one Microsoft announced some big news this…

Summer is upon us (according to some definitions, at least), and so the temptation to leave your gaming consoles behind and go outside might be strong. When it comes to the gaming calendar, June is traditionally not a month during which big releases grace our shelves, and that’s certainly the case this year, too. Even still, you’ll find plenty of electronic entertainment to keep you occupied this June if you’re not the sort to seek the sun and warmth of the outdoors. Here are the best games heading your way across all systems in June 2024! Destiny 2: The Final…

Once again, another week in gaming has gone by, and there’s plenty happening to whet the appetite of even the most curious consumer of news. Some games got release dates, while others got pushed back indefinitely; such is the way of the gaming industry. Nothing’s ever certain, especially not these days. Unfortunately, this week also saw its fair share of layoffs and studio closures, although things do seem to be quieting down just a little after the disastrous year the industry has had. Here’s what’s been happening in the gaming world this week! Life By You has been delayed Early…

We’re inching ever closer to the E3 period (or what would traditionally have been considered the E3 period, at any rate), and while you might think that could mean a lack of gaming news, that’s not been the case at all. This week has been a rather explosive one in the world of games, with major studio closures and big announcements from huge tentpole companies to chew over. Let’s have a look at what’s been happening in the world of gaming this week, shall we? An announcement for the Switch 2 will be made sometime this year This week, Nintendo…

It’s been another exciting week in the world of gaming, with major multiplayer games causing controversy, indie strategy sims taking off, and much more happening besides.

When it comes to the gaming calendar, May isn’t generally the best time for major releases. Sometimes, a big game will launch in May and confound expectations, but for the most part, May can be a bit quiet in the world of gaming, meaning it’s a great month for catching up on backlogs or stepping out of your comfort zone. That doesn’t mean you don’t have anything to play in May if you want something fresh though, so without further ado, let’s take a look at the best of what’s coming to PC and gaming consoles this month!

For many in the gaming industry, April is something of a cursed month thanks to the arrival of April Fools’ Day, which is, of course, the day on which gaming companies decide to get silly. Not every studio pulled a prank on its fans for this most auspicious of days, but many did, and games journalists often curse April Fools’ Day for interfering with genuine news. Thankfully, April Fools’ Day doesn’t last all week, so there are still plenty of intriguing things to report on even without all of the “hilarious” jokes. Here’s our roundup of this week in gaming…

Whether you believe that spring truly begins at the start of March or towards its end, one thing’s for certain: spring is well and truly underway when April rolls around.

When the Wii was first released in 2006, gamers and critics alike appeared to have a hard time taking it seriously as a gaming console. The name alone provoked mockery and derision from those who wanted more “hardcore” gaming experiences, while the fact that games like Wii Sports and Wii Fit proved popular seemed to reinforce the Wii’s casual reputation. The fact is, though, that the Wii had a huge library of excellent games for both hardcore and casual players, and if you knew where to look, you could find some truly incredible titles. From massive open-world RPGs to tight…

This, combined with some excellent independent launches and some exciting announcements and reveals, has made 2023 a great year to be a gamer, whatever platform you may be playing on.…

City builders are a very divisive prospect. For some, they’re an engaging timesink, providing hours of compelling and strategic entertainment. Others, meanwhile, condemn them as boring and stuffy.

Zombies are a reliable cultural phenomenon. If you want to sprinkle a little danger and high-stakes drama on your fictional premise, then add zombies. It’s an approach that’s worked for The Walking Dead, 28 Days Later (yes, they’re not technically zombies, but they fulfil the same purpose) and Sony’s upcoming epic Days Gone, among others. Zombies are a universal villain: they’re unstoppable monsters with no recourse to reason, so they’re a natural fit for villainy. They’re also a great bad guy for video games. You can dispatch as many of these shambling horrors as you like without feeling guilty, making…

Indiana Jones has been part of the video game medium for decades. There have been many incarnations of the famous archeologist in video game form. Everything from ‘point and click’ adventures, to ‘top/down’ escapades. When MachineGames announced they were working on a new Indiana Jones game a few years ago, gamers didn’t know what to make of it. MachineGames are known for first-person shooters, and putting Indy into that mold seemed rather alien. Well, it turns out that this indeed seems to be the case. Indiana Jones and The Great Circle will be a first-person title, with some third-person moments…
