Self-described on its Steam store page as "the war between mankind and their brutal Combine overlords to a traditional real-time strategy (RTS) setting" it has many Half-Life fans foaming at the mouth.

Elite: Dangerous played on 3D screens, touch panels and head tracking

Markus Boesen has built himself a dream PC gaming setup, the kind that you see on fan websites photo-shopped up as someones dream. Set to provide himself with the best gaming experience possible, Boesen has taken these ideas and brought them to reality.

 

 

Utilizing three 3D monitors running at a combined 5760 x 1080 resolution, he's installed touchscreen inputs, voice recognition, head-tracking and carefully arranged Saitek joysticks to ensure this gaming pad is more of a cockpit than a regular desktop setup.

Driveclub patch has 'made major improvements to online play'

Driveclub has been stalling and sputtering for most of its time post-launch, but Evolution Studios is continuing to patch up the PlayStation 4 exclusive social driving title.

The latest patch from the developer promises "made major improvements to online play" and you'll "now see that challenges are back up and running for everybody". There's another patch coming that will offer something special, but we don't know what to expect as the studio is keeping it secret for now. According to a tease on their Facebook page, it could be rain being added to the game for some possible sliding action?

Day of the Tentacle and Grim Fandango are being remastered for PS4, PC

Well, I woke up to some good news this morning, with the PlayStation Experience event that is wrapping up by Sony still spilling out some truly good news for gamers.

 

 

Some of LucasArts most memorable, and best games are being remastered by Double Fine. Day of the Tentacle and Grim Fandango will be remastered, with Day of the Tentacle: Special Edition coming out for the PlayStation 4, PC, Linux and PlayStation Vita - but with no release date, which makes me sad.

 

The remastered version of Grim Fandango on the other hand, will be released on January 27, 2015 for all four of the aforementioned platforms.

Street Fighter 5 announced for PS4 and PC, with cross-platform play

A surprising announcement from Sony and Capcom during the PlayStation Experience event today, with Street Fighter 5 being announced for both the PlayStation 4 and PC exclusively.

 

 

On top of that, Sony's Adam Boyes and Capcom's Yoshinori Ono announced that there will be cross-platform play featured between the PS4 and PC, which is something that will continue having Sony edging out Microsoft in the console war. Boyes said that the two companies have been working together on Street Fighter 5, and that the "PS4 will be the only console this game ever appears on".

King's Quest reboot footage unveiled, goes for a new 3D art style look

During The Game Awards in Las Vegas last night, we were greeted to the trailer to the new King's Quest. In this trailer, we find out that there is a new 3D art style, which I personally don't know that I liked, yet.

 

 

The Odd Gentlemen, an indie studio, is working on the game, which will be released in fall 2015. The original creators of the original game, Ken and Roberta Williams have been involved with the game, which should have King's Quest fans really excited.

The Order: 1886 receives more gorgeous trailer footage

The Game Awards has provided us with a wealth of game-related posts today, where we continue on with the world premiere trailer to The Order: 1886. The Order: 1886 is a PlayStation 4 exclusive title, which takes place in a Victorian London-type world, and is a cover-based shooter.

 

 

As you can make out from the trailer above, there's barely any gameplay footage here, which is disappointing. The trailer itself happens during "Chapter 5: Agamemnon Rising" which sees the characters boarding an airship of some description, taking control of it. Ready at Dawn is behind The Order: 1886, which arrives on the PS4 sometime next year, oh and by the way, at 30FPS.

CD Projekt Red lets you play as multiple characters in The Witcher 3

The Witcher 3 is getting closer and closer to release, but we've just received a tsunami full of game announcements, reveals, gameplay footage and much more. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt doesn't escape this, with its new "Elder Blood" trailer, below.

 

 

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will let you play more than one character, with Geralt still being your number one choice. The character wasn't fully announced, but it was definitely teased in the video. February 2015 definitely can't come soon enough.

Sony shows off Uncharted 4 gameplay footage on the PS4 at 1080p 60FPS

Sony has shown off the first gameplay footage to Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, which is an exclusive to the PlayStation 4, at its own PlayStation Experience event. The footage can be viewed in the video below.

 

 

As you can see, or might have noticed, it is running at Full HD (1920x1080, or 1080p) at a fluid 60FPS. There's an increase in visual effects and detail, such as Nathan Drake rustling up the foliage as he walks past it, or through it, and dust being flicked up when bullets start smashing into rocks and other parts of the environment.

 

Naughty Dog did promise us 1080p at 60FPS a little while ago, so it's good to see them mostly hitting the target here with Uncharted 4 on the PS4. For now, enjoy that nice, long 15-minute video of Uncharted 4 on the PlayStation 4.
