Mere weeks after Firaxis and 2K Games announced the first expansion pack for Civilization: Beyond Earth, Rising Tide, the companies follow-up with another announcement that XCOM fans will swoon over: XCOM 2 is en route. In traditional game publisher fashion, a launch trailer has been released that gives us a quick taste of what we can expect to see in XCOM 2: XCOM 2 acts as a sequel to Enemy Unknown, released in 2012, and takes place 20 years after that game's events. Aliens took over, and now it's time for XCOM forces to strike back and reclaim control of Earth. Unlike Enemy Unknown, XCOM 2 is... Read more...
Seven months after the release of Civilization: Beyond Earth, the game's first expansion pack has been announced. Called Rising Tide, this expansion pack revolves around water, water, and more water.

Rising Tide will introduce an overhauled diplomacy system, adding even more complexity to your relationships, and also adds four new factions. One of these factions is called Al Falah, a group of nomad explorers who've descended from wealthy Middle Eastern states. Affinities... Read more...

For one reason or another, it's fair to say that the majority of people in real life would never cross the moral lines that Rockstar Games presents in Grand Theft Auto V. Some would (and do), but by and large, we're not all running around jacking cars, robbing jewelery stores, trafficking drugs and weapons, beating up random pedestrians, and so forth. But put those elements in a game and what you have is a cash cow. The latest installment in the Grand Theft Auto franchise soared past $1 billion in worldwide retail sales during its first three days of availability, publisher Take-Two Interactive... Read more...
Is there a bigger tease in the world than Rockstar Games? Not if you're a PC gamer. Again and again, Rockstar Games gropes the console community right in front of PC players by slow rolling game updates, screenshots, trailers, and other tantalizing tidbits for their platform right up until the launch of whichever Grand Theft Auto title it's working on. This time it was Grand Theft Auto V, one of the biggest releases of 2013, and like previous versions, there's no PC version at the outset. Even though previous games in the series have ended up on the PC, Rockstar has so far refused to acknowledge... Read more...
For better or worse, the Internet has made it nearly impossible to keep a secret these days. Just ask Rockstar Games, the developer of the Grand Theft Auto franchise. Despite a brilliant marketing strategy consisting of frequent but limited updates on the progress of Grand Theft Auto V (GTA V), arguably the most anticipated game of 2013, spoilers have come to light, though Rockstar Games isn't the one to blame. Back in August, hackers were able to decrypt certain elements of the game after downloading digital pre-order copies from Sony in Europe. Sony may have meant well -- serve up encrypted copies...

The biggest, most expansive installment of the hugely popular Grand Theft Auto series is set to debut next week on September 17th, 2013 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 game consoles. This is easily one of the most highly anticipated titles of the year and could end up being the biggest entertainment launch of 2013. One of the numbers floating around the web is $292 million, which is how much Grand Theft Auto V is estimated to have cost to build and market. In anticipation of the upcoming launch, developer Rockstar Games released a bunch of new screenshots. Since the game was announced last year,... Read more...
Consider Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto franchise a guilty pleasure, and we're willing to admit we're looking forward to the next major installment, Grand Theft Auto V. Unless something went terribly wrong in the design phase, you can expect more in-game violence and blatantly illicit jobs set in the franchise's biggest open world to date, which will task us with running around doing things that we'd never do in real life (for the most part, anyway. As if gamers weren't already looking forward to GTA V's release, Rockstar Games has begun accepting pre-orders and is tossing in extra goodies at... Read more...
