Sea of Thieves’ regular live events kick off in the new Skeleton Thrones update

Sea of Thieves’ latest update is now live and marks the start, at long last, of Rare’s regularly scheduled live events and smaller-scale activities for the piratical multiplayer adventure. With The Hungering Deep now over, and the ancient megalodon now returned to the depths of the ocean, the Bilge Rats, which were briefly introduced in the last update, have now become a fully fledged faction in Sea of Thieves – joining the likes of the Merchant Alliance, Gold Hoarders, and Order of Souls. The Bilge Rats work slightly differently to…

E3 2018: Good News! Final Fantasy VII Remake Is in Development

Final Fantasy VII Remake was announced three years ago, but there’s good news for fans of the PSone Classic: the PlayStation 4 version is “actually in development”. We’re being facetious, but Tetsuya Nomura’s update to The Verge deserves it – he had the brass neck to tell the tech site that the title’s “not just in the early concept stages”. We should bloody well hope so! He added: “Right now, it’s like I’ve been putting in 100 per cent into Kingdom Hearts, 100 per cent into Final Fantasy VII, 100…

Unfriended: Dark Web Trailer Reveals Twisted, Surprise Sequel

The first trailer for Unfriended: Dark Web is here. Blumhouse found themselves a sneaky hit in 2015 with the first Unfriended, which was pretty inventive within the realm of found footage horror, centering entirely on a webcam chat between friends. Basically, the entire movie takes place on a laptop screen. Now, the studio has released a trailer for the surprise sequel, which is set to be released in just over a month on July 20. Blumhouse held a couple of secret screenings for the movie during this year’s SXSW festival…

Fan-favourites Hunk and Tofu are returning for the Resident Evil 2 remake

Fans of faintly absurd bonus characters can breathe a sigh of relief today; Capcom has confirmed that both Hunk and Tofu will be returning for the Resident Evil 2 remake on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. For the uninitiated, Hunk and Tofu were bonus characters present in horror classic Resident Evil 2 – appearing in their own mini-missions, and unlocked if various criteria were met. Hunk, a mysterious gas-mask-wearing Umbrella operative, featured in the 4th Survivor mini-mission, and was unlocked by completing the Leon and Claire scenarios with an…

The Grinch Trailer #2 Goes on a Mission to Steal Christmas

Following the second poster that debuted yesterday, Universal Pictures has unveiled the second trailer for The Grinch, slated to arrive in theaters November 9. Unlike the live-action adaptation entitled How the Grinch Stole Christmas in 2000, which starred Jim Carrey as the title character, Universal has teamed up with Illumination Entertainment (Despicable Me franchise) to turn this classic story into a new animated movie, with Benedict Cumberbatch providing the voice of the title character. The first trailer and poster debuted back in March, but this second trailer features plenty of…

The Last of Us Has Sold an Outrageous 17 Million Units on PS4, PS3

We knew The Last of Us was successful, but we hadn’t realised quite how successful. On the survival horror’s fifth anniversary, however, Naughty Dog has revealed that Joel and Ellie’s inaugural adventure has sold a mind-melting 17 million copies across the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 since its original release in 2013. That’s a truly staggering statistic. The last figure we got for The Last of Us was all the way back in 2014, when it had eclipsed seven million units on the PS3 alone. That was before the remaster…

Why Bungie killed off Cayde-6 in Destiny 2

Of all the characters in the universe of Destiny, Cayde-6 has been one of the series’ most popular. The wise-crackin’ Hunter Vanguard has been one of Bungie’s most recognizable faces (and voices, thanks to the inimitable Nathan Fillion) for years — so why did they just kill him off during our E3 2018 Showcase? We caught up with the project lead on Destiny 2: Forsaken, Scott Taylor, to get some answers. PlayStation.Blog: Tell me about the internal discussion about killing off Cayde-6. Who pitched the idea first, and what was…

Soapbox: Why Don’t We Hear from Sony Executives Anymore?

You can brand me a big fat nerd if you want to, but I genuinely look forward to the executive interviews you get around E3 time. I used to anticipate Jack Tretton joining Geoff Keighley, his Hollywood smile only eclipsed by the sweltering Los Angeles sun. And then for a while it was Shuhei Yoshida’s turn to take the spotlight, the likeable veteran well-versed in Sony’s first-party output – and just an all-round good guy. But it’s been a while since we heard from any of PlayStation’s bigwigs really. Marketing…
