Video: Much of Advanced Warfare's plot revealed by trailer, and I think I smell a beta coming

A campaign trailer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare came out which goes over some of the plot points. I also speculate on some rather obvious, yet still uncertain, plot developments to come. The trailer also announced a multiplayer reveal coming August 11, which I theorize could come with a beta announcement.

Bungie doesn't think you should be disappointed by the lack of exploration on Earth in Destiny

For fans concerned that the amount of areas available to players in Destiny, Bungie has spoken out in a bid to reassure the masses. And their idea of reassuring those who participated in the Destiny beta is to basically pop o...

Unreal Tournament footage: 'We have a game now'

I came in expecting little from this latest Unreal Tournament footage considering how not far along the game was in the last video, but this one is much more worthy of your time. Movement mechanics, levels, weapons, and team...

Just how tactical is Rainbow Six: Siege?

Rainbow Six: Siege has some single-player component, but the E3 reveal was multiplayer-focused, and that's probably going to be the best bit of it.  Unfortunately, the carefully manicured, staged banter of the...

Heads up: Payday will be free on Steam in October photo
Heads up: Payday will be free on Steam in October
by Jordan Devore

It feels silly to tell you about a game that's going to be free months from now, but maybe, just this once, it'll prevent someone from buying said game right before the promotion begins. With that in mind, Payday: The Heist will be free for 24 hours on October 18, 2014.

This offer is connected to Overkill Software's Crimefest, a celebration of the Payday franchise's third anniversary happening in October. The studio has a goal of 1.5 million community member sign-ups on the Payday 2 Steam group, and there are milestones with rewards. The group now has over 1,050,000 members, hence the free Payday offer.

Even if you're done with the original game, I'd encourage Payday 2 players to take a look at that link -- the other rewards will be relevant to your interests. Looks like we'll get them all, too.

The Destiny beta is gone forever, tell us your stories photo
The Destiny beta is gone forever, tell us your stories
by Kyle MacGregor

The Destiny beta was extinguished late last night, leaving us with six long weeks to carry a torch for the shooter until Bungie rekindles the affair this September.

"Your mission in the Destiny beta is complete," Bungie tweeted yesterday evening shortly after snuffing out the beta servers. "Your next adventure begins on September 9th, with the official launch of Destiny."

"Bungie thanks you for playing. We made some great discoveries of our own, and we'll use them to make Destiny a great game for all."

I definitely enjoyed my time with the Destiny beta, and am eager to return to the firefight this autumn. We're curious about the rest of you, though. Did anything particularly remarkable happen during your time with the beta this past week, and how did it impact your perception of the game?

Ubisoft is sending someone to Mt. Everest to play Far Cry 4

I want to play Far Cry 4 and, yeah, scaling a mountain like Everest would be a once-in-a-lifetime trip -- but playing Far Cry 4 *on* Mt. Everest? Not for me, sadly. That said, someone out there -- the one lucky person chosen...

The Far Cry 4 devs went to Nepal and watched an animal sacrifice

It's not uncommon for developers to travel to far and distant lands to immerse themselves in the culture that they aim to represent in the videogames they're creating. What is uncommon (I imagine) is to watch a goat get sacr...

Back with more impressions from playing Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, I had some first-hand playtime with the cybernetic tough guy, Wilhelm the Enforcer, which I would like to relate to you with my mouth. Wilhelm may not be all he's cracked up to be, yet. But he's got a couple of interesting surprises.

Good, good: Battlefield Hardline delayed to 2015

Video: Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel's new Stingray vehicle, Athena breakdown, and smart guns?
by Bill Zoeker

I got my hands on Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel recently, and I've got some hot info on the new mechanics, and one of the new player characters, Athena the Gladiator. The game's new Stingray vehicle has a neat trick to it, there may be smart-targeting laser guns in this new iteration, most importantly, Athena is definitely a badass.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel releases in North America on October 14th, 2014; with the worldwide release following on the 17th.
