According to the commentary, the developers worked closely with Microsoft to optimize this version of Destiny, which allows Bungie to match the graphical fidelity of the PlayStation 4 ...

    Id Software's upcoming Doom reboot was revealed last week at QuakeCon 2014, though the event's livestream cut out during the presentation. As Bethesda's VP of PR and Marketing Pete Hines told PC Gamer, Doom isn't exactly ready to show off, so the developers at id Software were reluctant to offer images of the game up freely for the rest of the world to pick at. "We're working with them to say, 'How does this work? What do we want to show?'" Hines said. "And they're like, 'Look, we don't want a stream to go ...

    Wii U owners can proverbially move home from one system to another using a new feature introduced in the latest system update. The 5.1.0 U firmware adds "Transfer Between Wii U Systems," allowing you to take all system data - user data, games and saves included - from the original console and move it onto the new one. The most important things you'll need to switch Wii Us are a SD card capable of holding all the data, and both systems to hand, fully updated and each with a GamePad attached. If you don't have your ...

    I'm calling it now - Rainbow Six: Siege is going to be the ultimate troll's game. The multiplayer seems tailor-made for a bit of no-nonsense obnoxiousness. Consider this: as the counter-terrorists, you'll be able to recon terrorist movements using a small drone, which skitters around the floor like a dangerously inquisitive pug. Were I playing the part of a filthy hostage-taker, I'd task one of my team with chasing that drone and sitting on it. Oh no! However will the boys in blue rescue the hostage when all they can see from ...

    Watch Dogs notched its fifth UK number one this week, the most for any game in 2014, and that's all well and good. Frankly, the entire country is just too exhausted from the relentless summer heat to notice. Brits are so used to rain, clouds, rain and more rain, so prolonged heatwaves like this one tend to take their toll.Maybe the heat's even affected games retail in the country, with nationwide sales enduring a 14 percent drop in revenue from the week before as the heat ramped up. Then again, it really doesn't help ...

    Bungie might have copped some flak for its exclusive bonuses of late, but the game's newest trailer - arriving with GREAT COINCIDENCE shortly before the Xbox One and Xbox 360 beta is due to begin - offers a little something to all console owners. Pre-ordering the game will net you the Vanguard Armory, which offers a range of faction-specific weapons, from the dully named 13098V Incognito Sniper Rifle to the beautifully poetic Peccadillo's Grace (a big pistol). The trailer also shows off some new gameplay ...

    Joe spent his Friday dreaming up his ideal update features for next month's Xbox One console firmware update. As it turns out, he didn't have long to wait to see which of his ideas made the cut (spoiler alert: one). Major Nelson posted up the list of changed to be included in the August Xbox One update on his blog, which you can read in full below. I'm particularly excited about being able to see friend activity direct on your home screen, which always felt a bit too static for my liking. See anything you're particularly looking ...

    Bethesda's DOOM Xbox One announcement last week was a tactical gesture, according to Bethesda's vice-president of marketing Pete Hines - the game isn't, strictly speaking, ready for showtime, but the publisher and developer id Software wanted to reassure fans following allegations that the project is up a certain creek without a paddle. This also means that the video aired to select QuakeCon attendees won't be circulated till 2015. Boo hiss. The claims about Doom's development difficulties "bothered the hell" out ...

    Xbox 360 Titanfall players - your time is nigh. Titanfall's Update 4 is finally coming to your console after a month-long delay, and with plenty of bug fixes, general improvements, new Burn cards and a new game mode, it's worth the wait.

    World Cup star Clint Dempsey joins Argentina's Lionel Messi on the North American box art for FIFA 15, EA revealed. The USA talisman is a great choice, but if money's short and you're looking to save loads, we recommend the Tim Howard edition (boom boom tish.) Dempsey, however, isn't the most striking thing about the new covers. That honor goes to his jerseys and the unmissable difference between them on Xbox and PlayStation. As you can see above, Dempsey's wearing his Xbox-sponsored Seattle ...

    An enterprising Star Wars fan is giving other devotees of Lucas' universe a new hope; a new, low-resolution, super-blocky hope.

The project, which has been in development for more than three years, is nearing completion. The new "Breath" trailer, seen above, will "probably" be the last preview we get before Paradise Decay releases the full movie in 2015, according to the YouTube description. Even ...

    Battlefield: Hardline might smell like the usual game of soldiers dressed up as a game of cops and robbers, but creative director Ian Milham is adamant that Visceral's first proper stab at Battlefield will stand apart from competitors. The single player, for instance, won't be about whacking moles. Is that "mole" as in espionage, Milham? "Taking Battlefield into the world of cops and criminals gives us an opportunity to do something completely different than what's been done in the past, not only in the series but in the genre ...

    Silly old people often tell us videogames teach us nothing - that we're all just burning intellectual energy that might otherwise be spent planting trees or harvesting mortgages from limestone cave systems. The difficulty with countering this line of thought is that many of the skills one might acquire from a videogame have fairly, er, specialised real-world applications. I like to think my fireball-pitching arm is second to none, for instance, but how am I to prove that short of filling a water balloon with napalm? And what about ...

During QuakeCon 2014, held in Dallas, id revealed that its venerable shooter will drop the '4' from the end of its name for the upcoming revival that's only coming to new consoles, but will include double jumping and jetpacks. As our chums at PC Gamer report, DOOM will be set on Mars and focuses on what made the series so memorable to begin with: old-school, fast-paced, run-and-gun shooting. Expect lots and lots of strafing, too. Executive Producer Marty Stratton also ...
