Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Has No Multiplayer, Online Features

Among other things, part of what makes FromSoftware’s Dark Souls games (and Bloodborne) special is their implementation of online elements and multiplayer. The ability to leave friendly or devious messages for other players is a novel and entertaining way for players to interact, while full-on co-op and PvP fleshes out the overall experience. However, it’s making substantial changes to the established formula with Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, and online play is out. GameSpot had the chance to speak with Yasuhiro Kitao of FromSoftware during a roundtable interview. “This title is…

If you’re anything like me, you’ll be on your second or third playthrough of Detroit: Become Human by now, and some of its musical themes will have well and truly lodged themselves in your brain. Good news: from today, you no longer have to boot up the game to listen to its phenomenal score. It’s now available for streaming via Spotify and Apple Music. The game’s soundtrack is the work of three different composers, each one creating themes for one of the game’s three central protagonists. Philip Sheppard produced music…

Fortnite PS4 Bundle Leaked at Just the Right Time

Remember in one of the Batman movies where Alfred informs Bruce Wayne that “some men just want to watch the world burn”? We can’t help but write this article with a wry, Joker-esque smirk: Sony appears to have leaked a Fortnite console bundle, which looks set to release in Europe next month. This is going to go down well after certain other stories, eh? This looks to be a cheap and cheerful package, featuring a 500GB PlayStation 4 Slim, as well as an exclusive skin and 500 V-Bucks. The bundle…

PES 2018 fans take it upon themselves to add unofficial World Cup mode

PES 2018 doesn’t have a World Cup update – EA has FIFA’s signature on that official licence. But it does have a small group of dedicated fans who have put the time into creating an unofficial World Cup update for the game. Konami’s football game is famous for its option files – edits that add official player names and kits, among other things, to the game. Back in the day, I’d spend hours manually editing player and team names in PES to make them real life accurate. These days –…

Valve has made a new Portal demo

Valve has returned to the world of Portal for Moondust, a brand new virtual reality demo.

Rumour: Hitman 2 Level Locations Leaked

Part of what made IO Interactive’s previous Hitman title so compelling was its mission locations. The episodic assassination adventure saw Agent 47 traveling the globe in order to carry out his contracts, providing a nice variety of environments to explore. If a recent leak is to be believed, Hitman 2 is set to feature a similarly diverse selection. We already know about Miami, where a grand endurance race is getting underway, but a leaked file that appears to have come direct from IO suggests a handful of other locales. If…

Friday the 13th: The Game Slashes All Future Content

A few weeks ago, Friday the 13th: The Game developer Gun Media announced that it was involved in a copyright lawsuit between the director of the original Friday the 13th movie, Sean Cunningham, and the film’s writer, Victor Miller. Since the lawsuit is ongoing, no new Friday the 13th products can be created or sold until the case is settled, so Gun Media announced that future content would have to be suspended. Now, in a clarification on the Friday the 13th: The Game forums, studio president Wes Keltner announced that…

Talking Point: How Much Does Cross-Play Matter to You?

Okay, let’s do it. The games industry is completely dead in the aftermath of E3 2018, with everyone except us apparently gorging on Turkey Twizzlers at all-inclusive holiday resorts. In fact, it would appear the only people left over are those running the Nintendo and Xbox social media accounts, who are so gleefully fellating each other that even 2006’s long-forgotten Wii60 brigade would blush. Cross-play – it’s the topic on everyone’s lips. Well, apart from Sony, of course – it didn’t schedule any interviews with the media last week, presumably in…

Skate Kitchen Red Band Trailer Reveals Raw NYC Subculture

The first trailer for Skate Kitchen has arrived. The movie debuted at the Sundance Film Festival this year and provides a look at a group of female skaters who live and breath skateboarding. This also brings Jaden Smith back to the big screen in what looks to be a relatively low-profile role. This trailer gives us our first real look at the movie, which looks like it might be the exact opposite of what one might expect when they hear about a skateboarding movie. This looks to be a much…

Shikhondo: Soul Eater Brings Beautiful Bullet Hell to PS4

You know it’s the week after E3 2018 when you’re forced to fill your article quota with a game named Shikhondo: Soul Eater – but here we are. Actually, this does look cool if you’re into scrolling shooters: it’s a bullet hell game coming out of Korea. The art’s really good, and it’s all been inspired by Korean mythology, so one of the bosses is a tiger with a woman attached to its jaw. Mental. “There are six game modes in Shikhondo, including Arcade, Boss Rush, Hardcore, and a new…
