If you’ve somehow managed to tired of the exhaustive variety of city-building tools, then we come bearing good news, however.

Paradox Interactive and Colossal Order have announced a Cities: Skyline expansion pack is in the works, with a full reveal coming at Gamescom 2015 in Cologne, early August. Colossal Order’s head honcho Mariina Hallikainen confirmed the expansion during an interview. It will be joined by a number of smaller free and paid updates. [More]

PlayStation 4 Dominating Europe With 70-90 Per Cent Of Console Sales

Written by Neil Soutter on 01 July 2015 at 14:00

We knew Sony was doing pretty well with the PlayStation 4, but the latest figures suggest it's absolutely dominating Europe, with console market shares in various countries ranging from 70-90%. This provides Sony with a massive presence in Europe, leaving Microsoft and Nintendo with uphill battles to regain the hearts and minds of European gamers.

SCEE president Jim Ryan, broke the news, saying “We have a very significant market leadership… Well, we have market leadership in every country in Europe, and have very significant market leadership in continental Europe. Extremely significant. I don’t think market-share’s any less than 70%, and frequently greater than 90% in continental Europe.” [More]

Master Of Orion System Requirements

Written by Joffy S on 01 July 2015 at 12:45

For GD’ers of a certain age, the name Master of Orion may bring up a certain twinkly-eyed nostalgia. The 4X sci-fi strategy game from Simtex followed in the footsteps of Civilization, this time delivering an epic space-faring TBS in which ten races battle for supremacy throughout a vast galaxy.

Now, it’s back, being developed by NGD Studios with the help of World of Tanks publisher Wargaming.net. A reimagining of a strategy classic, players must explore, expand, exploit, and exterminate their foes over a huge 100 star system map, utilising diplomacy, advanced technology, and conquest to win them over. Before you start buying your rocket fuel and flying off into space, check to see whether your PC can hit warp speed 7 with the official Master of Orion 2015 system requirements. [More]

A number of big-hitters from Microsoft dodged E3 emtirely, and they’ll all be cropping up here.

Warner Bros Montreal Hiring For All-New Open-World Game

Written by Stuart Thomas on 30 June 2015 at 16:30

Warner Bros Montreal, the studio behind Batman: Arkham Origins, is working on an open-world action game, but this time it’s not based on Batman. Following the lukewarm reception to Arkham prequel Origins, WB Montreal is looking to try its hand at something a little different, taking on new staff for a game built around a different IP.

The studio is looking for a number of staff, including a technical director, tasked with being a specialist with the Unreal Engine. "Scripting languages and design tools of the Unreal Engine" is in the description of the job, along with a game designer responsible for “designing and driving development of specific features or systems for an open-world action game."

Nolan North Confirms The Last Of Us 2 Is In The Works

Written by Neil Soutter on 30 June 2015 at 15:15

Nolan North, the voice of practically every video game lead that Troy Baker isn’t, has let slip that a The Last of Us 2 is in the works. The voice actor, who played villain David in The Last of Us, was speaking during a panel at Metrocon 2015. When asked by a fan whether he had any more work lined up at Naughty Dog following his stint on Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, North said "Not yet, I know they're doing The Last of Us 2."

While many have assumed Naughty Dog would work on a The Last of Us sequel, this is the first concrete information we’ve heard so far. The original game is one of the most well-received of all time, scooping up more than 240 Game of the year awards and racking up some considerable sales. [More]

Nvidia Looks To Be Readying A GeForce GTX 950 Ti Graphics Card

Written by Joffy S on 30 June 2015 at 14:00

We’re hearing the first murmurings of a GeForce GTX 950 Ti in the works, suggesting Nvidia is planning to unleash a new Maxwell-powered entry-level graphics card. Both a GTX 950 Ti and a 950 are expected to surface, replacing the current GTX 750 and the impressive GTX 750 Ti.

The graphics processing unit used in the GTX 950 Ti is the GM206-250, and it’s likely to be a cut-down version of the graphics core used in the GTX 960. The 750 Ti was the only 700-series graphics card to already use a Maxwell GPU, so it’s unlikely we’re going to see performance gains as impressive as we saw there, but we're expecting a reasonable bump.
