    Watch Dogs 2 Getting Largest Free Multiplayer Update in July

    Come July 4, Watch Dogs 2 will be graced with the largest free multiplayer update ever. To be frank, I didn't know that the game had any updates to its multiplayer previously, so calling it the largest probably isn't any sort of stretch. Huh, according to the Ubiblog, the game has actually received five free updates and has three DLC releases. Who knew? Regardless, this update will include new missions, weapons, outfits, vehicles, map locations, and modes for the online multiplayer. Pe...

    Final Fantasy XV 1.12 Update Goes Off the Rails

    Those of you who have played Final Fantasy XV know that the driving in the game is a very "on rails" experience. You weren't able to take your adventure off road because the game would simply prevent you from doing so. Now, with the release of the 1.12 update, this has all changed.

    You are now able to take your car, the Regalia, off road when you get a special Type-D customization. That customization literally turns the car into a monster truck. Nice. The update is over 8.6...

    The "Hela" trailer for Ninja Theory's Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice came out a few days back. No, this isn't a trailer featuring any sort of promotional tie-in with Life is Strange. You'd need an extra "L" in "Hela" for that to happen. Perhaps one day.

    Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice will be released on August 8 for $29.99 (USD). You can pre-order the game on the PS4 to get a Dynamic Theme or on PC via Steam or GOG to get a digital comic.

    If these new reports are to be believed, these first-party...
