One of the most interesting things we were looking forward to during the Game Awards was the reveal of Obsidian Entertainment’s new project. Just as expected it’s a sci-fi space RPG called The Outer Worlds, offering 3D first-person adventuring antics in a wacky world.
It’s rumour time, and now it’s the altogether unsurprising tidbit that a top-secret BioShock game is under development. The rumour comes from Kotaku’s Jason Schreier, who did a feature on Mafia III, its creators, Hangar 13, and the game’s troubled development which ultimately led to a disappointing game.
We've made it. There are just four rounds to go until the final. Only 16 games remain. 48 have been knocked into oblivion, the remaining few competing for the title of best videogame series of all time. It's time for four absolute giants to slug it out, it's Grand Theft Auto v Half-Life v Far Cry v BioShock, each staking a claiming as gaming's greatest franchise in 2017. The rules are simple - just vote for your favourite game series below.
Our quest to find out which game series is the best of all time continues. Now it's time for Round 5 to find the best game franchise in 2017. An all-star lineup includes the most commercially successful game series of all time, among others. It's Metal Gear v Mario v Everquest v Mass Effect and there can be only one game to make it through to the semi-finals. Over the course of 20 rounds, we will be pitting the biggest gaming franchises of all time against one another in order to determine the definitive list of the best game series in 2017. The best game franchise in 2017 contest continues in Round Two. Rainbow Six, Left 4 Dead, Halo and Half-Life are squaring up against one another to find the definitive
Take-Two Interactive has been engaging in all of its end of year financial hijinks, revealing last year’s earnings as well as delivering a forecast for the upcoming fiscal years. The big news, of course, was Red Dead Redemption 2’s delay, with Take-Two confirming it wouldn’t be out this financial year. That means it won’t be with us until April 2018 at the earliest. Aside from this was another intriguing nugget though, with Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick confirming Red Dead Redemption 2 will be joined next year by a new title “from one of 2K’s biggest franchises”, suggesting Borderlands 3 or BioShock 4 could be on the way.
This week we dive once more into the depths of Rapture and the heights of the floating city of Columbia as BioShock: The Collection hits PC. Comprising the original BioShock, the, ahem, much better BioShock 2, and the divisive BioShock Infinite, BioShock: The Collection is one heck of a lot of BioShock, and surely a must buy for anyone who hasn't given these titles a go yet. Infinite remains much the same on PC, but the first two are being given the remastered treatment on PC, with updated visuals and higher quality audio. The best bit? It's all free if you own the original games.
BioShock’s Rapture was no doubt one of the most captivating worlds we’ve seen in gaming for many a year. There was something about the strange ethereal world of Andrew Ryan’s underwater city which was deeply engrossing, right from that first plummet down to the bottom of the ocean.
I think we were all a little taken aback when we first laid eyes on the Prey reboot at E3 this year. Previously shown as Prey 2, it was an open-world sci-fi adventure set in a giant city under development at Human Head Studios. This was scrapped entirely, in favour of an Alien Isolation-style horror game set aboard a hulking space station. To answer why, and more, new developer Arkane Studios has unleashed a new trailer for Prey.
It’s been the industry’s worst kept secret, but 2K has at long last officially announced BioShock: The Collection. Remastered for the current-gen consoles, The Collection includes all three BioShock games - BioShock, BioShock 2, and BioShock Infinite, along with all single-player DLC.
It’s been rumoured for what seems like forever now, but at long last it looks as if BioShock: The Collection has surfaced. It seems a no brainer for 2K to package up the BioShock series and re-release it, and according to a Taiwanese game rating website just such a title has been passed through for certification.
Ex-Irrational devs have started up a Kickstarter campaign for a new surrealist first-person adventure, called The Black Glove. The BioShock Infinite developers have founded a new indie start up called Day For Night Games, and the team has begun work on the PC, Mac, and Linux title that is attempting to expand the boundaries of video game narrative by tying the story directly into the very fabric of the player’s actions.
