The second expansion for the excellent Forza Horizon 3 is coming May 9. Called Hot Wheels, in it players will travel off the coast of Australia to reach islands overrun with strange elevated tracks that loop and corkscrew and defy the laws of gravity. And yes, it looks as awesome as it sounds. The expansion will also introduce a bunch of new cars, including a few classic Hot Wheels -- which have been re-sized of course. Forza Horizon 3 Hot Wheels takes players to six new themed…

And it's definitely channeling the look and feel of Saving Private Ryan and Band of Brothers. Developed by Sledgehammer Games, Call of Duty: WWII takes the series back to its roots with a campaign and setting during World War II. The reveal trailer, which is made up of in-game footage, certainly looks good. It's been such a long time since the last Call of Duty took place in this era that it somehow looks fresh. D-Day recreation and all. Check it out. Call of Duty: WWII takes…

Out tomorrow we've spent some considerable time with Relic's latest Warhammer 40,000 outing to bring you our verdict. Spoiler alert, it's pretty good! Taking a different approach to the action-RPG styling of Dawn of War II the third game in the series (standalone expansions aside) sees a return of base building and amassing large armies. And in a strange twist, MOBA-style structure and objectives for the multiplayer. The inclusion of Elites may feel like a carryover from Dawn of War II,…

Not to be confused with the upcoming retro-inspired Sonic Mania, which provides new levels in the style of the 16-bit originals, Sonic Forces is the the bigger, fully-3D Sonic game coming this holiday season for Nintendo Switch, PS4, PC, and Xbox One. When gameplay footage debuted for Sonic Forces it looked like a more Sonic Generations behind the hedgehog point of view affair. And now it looks to be a mixture with a new video showcasing some classic side-view Green Hill Zone…

Night Trap, the FMV-driven Mega-CD title where a house full of barely clothed women are harassed by supernatural weirdos, is making a comeback with a 25th anniversary re-release on PS4 and Xbox One. Outside of being a mostly terrible FMV experiment for the Mega-CD (or, Sega-CD) add-on for the Sega Mega Drive, it also became the focal point for the U.S. government's probe into the dangers of video game violence in the '90s. Even though it doesn't feature any explicit scenes of violence…

In a response to a forum post, Overwatch Game Director Jeff Kaplan let a fan who was a little concerned about the lack of new maps coming to game that there are three new maps "past the initial play-testing phase" that are on track for release this year. And these are Quick Play/Competitive Play maps. Jeff also advised that there were three additional non-traditional maps in the works, alongside "a few other experiments." Since its launch last May Overwatch has only seen two new maps…

So yeah, it's a tactical strategy game featuring an alien menace. But, one of the good ones. With a tentative launch window of Q4 2018, Phoenix Point has launched a crowdfunding campaign on Fig where in under a day it has already raised over 50% of its somewhat modest $500,000 goal. And we say modest because the game itself, which has already been in development for a year, looks fantastic. Deep sea alien mutant hybrids that can change their appearance and abilities to counter certain…

It's probably safe to say that at this point the Sim City crown is sitting firmly on top of Cities: Skylines, err, figurative head. Okay, the point being that when it comes to city builders and simulation games you really only need to be looking at Cities: Skylines, one of the most important releases for the genre in a long while. And now it's made it's way to console with the debut of Cities: Skylines for Xbox One. It certainly looks the part. And with the 'console optimisation'…

Sometimes you don't know what you want until you're taken by surprise. The latest cinematic trailer that has launched alongside the release of Heroes of the Storm 2.0 to showcase the arrival of Overwatch's Genji into the Nexus alongside the serene battleground of Hanamura has done just that. In it we get to see Genji face-off against Diablo. Yeah, ol' Deebsy himself. And just when things couldn't get any cooler, in comes D.Va to lend a helping hand. This is the best sort of illogical fan…
