E3 2015

Here's every trailer for every PC game from E3 2015

Comments7

E3 2015 is over, the dust has settled, the chips have fallen, the horse has bolted and the chickens have come home to lay some lovely game eggs right into our open mouths.

So that can mean only one thing: we've (I've) painstakingly collected trailers and gameplay footage from almost every PC game to have appeared at E3 2015 and stuck it all in one single, handy post. Missed some of the conferences? Didn't quite catch all of the announcements? Fancy loading up about a dozen embedded YouTube videos per page? Of course you do, so come inside and browse our gallery of tantalising PC games.

Did I miss something? Yeah, sounds like something I'd do. Let me know in the comments below and I'll add it straight away.

Guild Wars 2 players furious about Heart of Thorns expansion pricing

Comments11

Guild Wars 2 developer ArenaNet has found itself in hot water over the pricing and marketing of its latest expansion, Heart of Thorns.

The update was made available to pre-purchase earlier in the week, though players are not one bit happy about the update's three-tiered pricing scheme, which seems to benefit new players far more than existing ones.

Lego Worlds Early Access review

Comments4

It’s a very curious feeling, playing Lego Worlds and constantly having Minecraft in the back of my mind. Not because Lego and Traveller’s Tales’ foray into creative sandboxes is identical to Minecraft, but because the comparison between Mojang’s ultra-successful game and Lego have always existed, but the roles are now reversed. 

Lego Worlds attempts to follow in Minecraft’s footsteps, and I know I’m inviting people to point out that Minecraft was not the first game to do what it does, but let’s not kid ourselves, it’s the biggest one and clearly the one that opened the way for games like Lego Worlds. It doesn’t take the direct, quickest route, though, sometimes meandering into different territory. And everything is blessed with a – usually delightful – Lego twist.

Out of Reach is a siege-ready island survival game; 200 Steam keys have washed up on our shores

Comments3

It sometimes seems that half of Steam is DayZ’s brood. If that’s true, new multiplayer survival game Out of Reach is a chip off the old block. It’s also about chipping bits off blocks, a la Minecraft. But it’s got its own thing going on: siege weapons with which to disassemble the elaborate shelters of your enemies.

In development in Poland for a year and a half, it’s been warmly received in Early Access - and we might have a spare code to load into a trebuchet and fire into your upturned, waiting face.

Blizzard details Heroes of the Storm's Eternal Confict update: new heroes, skins and mounts revealed

Comment

Over the last week, Blizzard began to drag more and more heroes into Heroes of the Storm, bolstering their MOBA's ranks with Diablo's Monk and King Leoric characters.

Now, in their efforts to create an unstoppable tide of new heroes, Blizzard are adding even more. Let's just assume every Blizzard character will become a hero in this game, eh?

Bethesda says there are "currently no plans" for paid Fallout 4 mods

Comments7

Ever since Valve and Bethesda briefly went doolally and started price-stickering Skyrim mods, there's been a creeping sense that the practice might have retreated to a safe distance to shake its fist and then reappear at a later time.

That's not the case, says Bethesda's Todd Howard, telling Kotaku that there are currently no plans to make anybody cough up a solitary cent for a Fallout 4 mod. Put your wallet down. Throw it out the window. You don't need it.

Here's 25 minutes of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided for your starving eyes

Comment

Another meaty demo video has slipped out of E3, this time following Deus Ex: Mankind Divided’s Adam Jensen through cutscenes, conversations and an infiltration that shows off both the quiet, stealthy and loud, explosive approaches. You can watch it below, but be warned: there’s a story spoiler between 18:25 and 22:20.

No Man’s Sky displays motivational quotes upon death, with words from greats such as Carl Sagan and… Jaden Smith.

Comments3

If you plough your spaceship into the side of an asteroid in No Man’s Sky, as your vision fades to black and breath leaves your body, motivational quotes appear on screen. Think death in Call of Duty, and you’re on the right track. These quotes will include words from science-fiction writers, philosophers, and Twitter man of wisdom Jaden Smith.

Evolve's getting a second season pass this month

Comments2

Evolve’s getting a second season pass, which seems a little unusual, given how quickly players seemed to bounce off the asymmetrical co-op shooter. It was a shame, but understandable given the limited range of maps and objectives. It doesn’t take all that long to see most of what the game has to offer, though that time is a lot of fun.

It’s also unusual because it’s a second season pass. 

Hunting Season 2 adds more hunters and a new monster to the game. Watch the teaser below.

Watch the massive Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain gameplay demo

Comments1

We’ve seen a lot of trailers and demos over the last few days, but this 40 minute playthrough of a Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain mission has proved to be one of the most impressive. It touches on most aspects of the open world Stealth game, from companions to customisation, and damn does it do it in style, even including a helicopter extraction straight out of an ‘80s action flick.

Mad Max prowls the wastes in 15 minutes of gameplay footage

Comments1

After this summer’s Mad Max: Fury Road movie, the best thing we could possibly dive into right now is a Mad Max game. Luckily Avalanche is on the case, and the Mad Max game will be here in September. For a closer look at the V8-fuelled vehicle combat in the game, take a peek at this 15 minutes of footage from E3 featuring Max’s Magnum Opus death machine.

The '90s are not as you remember them in YIIK: A Post-Modern RPG

Comment

Yeah, Final Fantasy VII is back - but if you want to return to the ‘90s in a JRPG without retreading old ground (or stepping away from your PC), try YIIK’s post-modern mystery.

Set in a time of dance mats and record shops with sections for pop-rock, alt-rock and rock-rock, it’s a mixture of exploration, intricate puzzles and combat involving lethally-spinning vinyl - think a turn-based take on Shaun of the Dead’s garden scene.

Square Enix

Hitman will not have a season pass; all DLC will be free

Comments2

Square Enix’s new Hitman is going to be a different beast of a game this time around, if what they showed at this year’s E3 is to believed. Players will be banding together across the world to crack the hardest assassination contracts.

The publisher also promised that they’d be updating the game regularly with new story missions and locations, and the best part is they will all be free.
