Project Cars 2 is coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC in late 2017. Crowdfunding on Slightly Mad Studio’s racing sim sequel began in 2015, months after the first game’s release. Expect more than 170 cars, 60 tracks, online championships and new racing disciplines to master.
This week, Rockstar Games released a big Grand Theft Auto Online update focused on stealing cars. Committing acts of grand theft auto, if you will. This new expansion is titled “Import/Export.” It adds new ways to make money and some wacky vehicles to spend that money on. The problem is that, unless you already have a…
I was sitting in a police car in a video game. Next to me was a Grand Theft Auto Online fan who didn’t want to play the game the way most people do. Actually, he was doing something the game was never really built for.
I’m finally into Grand Theft Auto Online. It took me a while. The game launched in late 2013, though I’m not sure I could have been excited for it sooner. What’d it take? Two nights of chaos and a revelation about what Rockstar’s multiplayer game actually is.
Sony’s new, more powerful $399 console, the PS4 Pro, has been designed to improve the graphics of new and old PS4 games. But conversations with developers at the PS4 Pro’s reveal event in New York City on Wednesday made it clear that it will also make console gaming more complex, introducing greater variation in a…
Some of the multiplayer additions to Grand Theft Auto Online may not interest devotees of the single-player part of Rockstar’s ever-evolving rendition of California crime. The stunt races introduced to the game throughout the past month should.
Since 2010's Hydro Thunder Hurricane, developer Vector Unit’s been finding new ways to do what they do best: high-speed water-based racing. With Riptide GP: Renegade they’re taking a stab at adding depth and character. It’s about damn time.
An autonomous, self-driving car in Los Santos? What could go wrong?
Platforming through lamp posts with a pogo stick or using vehicles as slingshots to reach some unreachable top of a building in Just Cause 3? No problem for the folks at EvolveStunting.
There’s a cutscene, late in Metal Gear Solid V, that’s ostensibly serious but contains a musical interlude so awkward it sent me into giggle fits. A dozen missions later, there’s a harrowing sequence that ranks among the best video game scenes I’ve ever played. If you don’t know how to reconcile those two things,…
This week, Rockstar is re-releasing Grand Theft Auto V on PS4 and Xbox One. The new version, which also comes to PC in January, has better graphics, new music, and a new first-person mode. You can now play the the bulk of the game—shooting, driving, skydiving, sexing—in first-person.
I spent a week playing a pre-release copy of the PlayStation 4 racing game Driveclub, and in that time I found it to offer striking visuals and a unique online multiplayer social experience. Then it launched. And everything went to hell.
I grew up in the era of video gaming where "multiplayer" meant inviting a friend over and plugging another controller into the second port. But these new consoles have elevated the concept of multiplayer to a level we could never have imagined in the 1990s, and the PlayStation 4's first exclusive racing game Driveclub…
The people behind Project Cars—a racing game slated for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Wii U this November—say this is all real gameplay footage.
At this point, I'm convinced that Project CARS isn't actually a racing game. It's a playable art installation that lets you take pretty pictures of cars. And things other than cars.
Safety is no laughing matter, particularly when it comes to a new console.
