Dark Souls Publisher Reveals Its New Game, A Vampire RPG

Ahead of schedule, the recently teased game from Bandai Namco has been revealed as Code Vein, an RPG where you play as a vampire.
Code Vein is described as a “dungeon exploration-type, hard action RPG” in the latest issue of Japanese publication Famitsu (as translated by Gematsu). It's in development by the same team responsible for the God Eater series.
Set in a post-apocalyptic near future, players assume the role of a Revenant. These are superpowered vampires who have lost most of their memories and now live as part of a society called Vein. Revenant need blood in order to avoid turning into something called a Lost.
Through the Buddy system, you can take an AI-controlled companion with you as you explore and engage in combat with a variety of swords and other melee weapons.
The full game is apparently still a ways off, with Famitsu reporting it's only 30% complete at this point and is not due out until 2018. It runs on Unreal Engine 4 but does not yet have any confirmed pl..

New Horizon Zero Dawn Update Out Today, Here’s What It Does

Guerrilla Games has revealed a new update for its PlayStation 4 exclusive, Horizon Zero Dawn. The patch goes live today, introducing a load of bug fixes and a couple of new features.
Most notably, you can now listen to your own music whilst playing Horizon, plus the update also adds the ability to drop chests that contain unwanted items. The remainder of the patch is made up of minor fixes; take a look at the full list below.
The open-world game's most recent patch added support for 3D Audio, while previous ones have tweaked balancing and fixed yet more bugs.

Horizon Zero Dawn launched on February 28 in the US before coming to Europe on March 1. The game received wi..

Alien: Covenant’s Doomed Crew Send Messages Home In Latest Teasers

Watch Zelda: Breath Of The Wild’s Secret Ending

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild rewards exploration and discovery, and while speedrunners have started taking the game down in record time, there are specific payoffs for completing as many sidequents as you can. That's one of the reasons we haven't released this video until now–we unlocked this additional ending scene for the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild quite a while ago, but we wanted to make sure you had a chance to find it on your own.
Consider this a heavy spoiler warning for the end of Breath of the Wild. If you haven't beaten the game yet, or you just want to discover everything on your own, read (and watch) no further.
To unlock this additional ending scene, which takes place after the end credits, you simply have to unlock every hidden memory, then head back to Impa. She'll give you one more memory to unlock. Defeat Ganon, watch the credits roll, then enjoy this extended scene between Link and Zelda.
How far have you gotten in Br..

1 TB PS4 Slim Finally Coming To US

Sony has announced it's bringing the 1 TB version of its PlayStation 4 Slim to US stores “this month.”
The company announced the news on Twitter, at the same time as confirming the console's price as $300. That's the same MSRP as the current 500 GB model, though it routinely sells for less. It's not yet clear if this new 1 TB version will be an alternative to the 500 GB device or if it will replace it.

AMD Radeon RX 580 And RX 570 Review

AMD released its RX 400 series graphics cards last year, and while they couldn't match the performance of Nvidia’s high-end 10-series GPUs, they arguably offered more bang for the buck. AMD's new 500 series video cards are built on the same underlying Polaris microarchitecture, but they have been refined through a more mature 14nm manufacturing process that allows them to run a bit faster.
