Electronic Arts’ story-based Star Wars game has been canned – report

Ever since Electronic Arts acquired the rights to make games based on the Star Wars universe back in 2013 we’ve been hoping for a proper story-based game (like the sadly-cancelled 1313). There was supposed to be a game like that in the works, being developed by now-shuttered studio Visceral. When Visceral closed up shop in 2017 EA’s unnamed story-heavy Star Wars title (code-named Ragta...[Read More]

Red Dead Online gets battle royale in new update

Red Dead Redemption 2 was one of Stuff’s top games of 2018. But the beautiful part of gaming is that it isn’t over. Frequently new content is released to improve the longevity of a game — something that developer Rockstar is amazing at. Case in point: A new update has Red Dead Online joining Fortnite and Black Ops in the battle royale area. If you’ve missed the battle royal...[Read More]

Stuff picks: The most anticipated games of 2019

2018 produced some of the best games we’ve ever had the pleasure of playing — from God of War and Red Dead Redemption 2 to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Black Ops 4. It’ll be hard to top last year’s titles, but 2019 won’t disappoint. Hopefully. With highly anticipated sequels and compelling original affairs in the mix, we’re excited to see what developers produce this year. We’ve scou...[Read More]

Everyone can play Fortnite Creative Mode right now for free

Ever wish you can just play Fortnite without dying with every first encounter? Yeah, we do too. Fortnite’s Creative Mode is available to everyone for free now, and is essentially Minecraft meets forts. This Creative Mode takes the building of structures in Fortnite to the next level.

Far Cry: New Dawn wants you to Rage around Hope County this February

If you battled with the spoilers contained in the Far Cry teaser from yesterday then you should immediately stop reading about the full reveal of Far Cry: New Dawn, a game that is so post-apocalyptic that we keep finding ourselves typing Fallout instead of Far Cry. Far Cry: New Dawn, based on the first reveal trailer, follows in the footsteps of previous in-between releases in that it looks set to...[Read More]

Feeling Steamed: Fortnite developers Epic Games launch their own online game store

Valve’s Steam is in for some competition, because Fortnite developers Epic Games just launched their own PC game store called… Epic Store. The store is open now, following last night’s The Game Awards broadcast — and it already has a (small, for the moment) selection of games available. Their gimmick? The Epic Store will offer a free game every fortnight. Get it? They hope to tak...[Read More]

Here’s why South Africans can’t access all the BO4 Blackout modes

When buying a video game, you’d expect to get all the game content all the time, right? Well… maybe not. The gaming industry has shifted from a complete (and singular) game model to more online and multiplayer content — games as a service. Even then, you’d expect that you get to keep what you pay for. That’s… not strictly true.  New Call of Duty title Black Ops 4 seem...[Read More]

DStv Now app available for Xbox One, some Hisense TVs

One of the biggest issues with DStv Now, Multichoice’s streaming service based on their DStv satellite television offering, is that the offering was limited to certain devices. Any time there’s a new platform added, though, DStv gets a little bit better. Guess what? It just got a little bit better. Multichoice has announced that DStv Now is finally available on the Xbox One, via its ow...[Read More]

Blizzard working on a ‘Warcraft Go’ mobile game

Whether you play it or not, Pokémon Go is a global phenomenon — and something that did make mobile gaming more interactive with its use of augmented reality. Suddenly we weren’t just sliding candies to make lines, we were actually gaming in the real world… and walking around it. Apparently Blizzard employees really like the format, too. Of course, putting ‘mobile gaming’ and Blizzard i...[Read More]

Black Friday for gamers – PS4 and Xbox Edition

It’s that time of the year again, when South Africans try to figure out how to do this Black Friday thing. If there’s one piece of advice we can give you it’s that online shopping is your friend. Especially if you’re a gamer who’d rather get some sessions in than face the stampedes. Luckily, PlayStation and Xbox have launched their annual Black Friday sale already, and it’ll run until after payday...[Read More]

Microsoft might be launching a disc-less version of the Xbox One next year

Microsoft might be working on something a little unusual, even for them. A report from Brad Sams of Thurrott.com, who has been accurate with Xbox info in the past, claims that the company is launching yet another Xbox One console in 2019. The prime difference is that this new console will be lacking a disc drive. Yup. No drive for physical media, just a hard drive — which would allow Microso...[Read More]
