Written by Stuart Thomas on 17 September 2014 at 11:45

The Creative Assembly brings the fear once more in a new Alien: Isolation trailer, where they’re once more promising pant-soiling aplenty and chances of survival rapidly dropping to 0%.

Scheduled to arrive in just a matter of weeks, Alien: Isolation has recently gone gold and is ready to go, if you dare to brave the xenomorph. Eschewing gunplay in favour of intense stealth tactics, Alien: Isolation pits you against a single stalking alien on the deserted space ship Sevastopol, engaging in a battle of wits and survival against the 8-foot snarling beast.

Hearthstone Deals In More Than 20 Million Unique Players Since Launch

Written by Stuart Thomas on 16 September 2014 at 15:15

Either Blizzard’s kissed the Blarney Stone, their office garden is comprised exclusively of four leaf clovers, or, more likely, they’ve got some serious talent over at that studio because Hearthstone has become the latest in a long line of Blizzard successes. The deck-building card battling game has only been out in for nigh-on six months but it was already amassed over 20 million players worldwide; more than three times the numbers currently plugging away at World of Warcraft.

Blizzard claims Hearthstone's the player count surged following the release of Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft’s first single-player update, the Curse of Naxxramas, as well as interest in the qualifying rounds for its upcoming Hearthstone World Championship. Hearthstone also recently made it onto iPad, and Blizzard has said to keep an eye out for an Android version in the near future. [More]

Elephants Do The Military Style In Latest Far Cry 4 Trailer

Written by Neil Soutter on 16 September 2014 at 14:00

The humble elephant. Calm and unassuming to the casual eye, the majestic Asian elephant is the largest-brained land mammal in the world and comes packing seven tons of total carnage. Somewhat dubiously Ubisoft claim the tusked wonders are capable of carrying the weight of 100 men, but their reputation as combat juggernauts is definitely cause for both concern and mirth ahead of their inclusion in Far Cry 4.

Ubisoft’s showing off its mighty elephants of Kyrat in its latest Far Cry 4 trailer, demonstrating why these beasts are the ultimate weapons of war when in the right hands. Contrary to previous wild animals in the Far Cry series, the elephants of Far Cry 4 will be fully rideable should you manage to tame them, but one wrong move and these hulking great beasts can bring a Himalayan village to its knees.  [More]
