Has the new World of Warcraft expansion’s endless questing got you down? Why not take a break from killing things for a fast-paced, team-based treasure hunt? Battle for Azeroth’s Island Expeditions are just the thing to break up the basic grind.
For a couple of years, I ran multiplayer Kotaku Game Nights in bars and pubs around London and Brighton, UK. We’d play good music with actual DJs, set up a bunch of consoles, get the beers in, and welcome anywhere from 50-200 people, depending on the night. It was the ultimate testing ground for competitive…
Each new Halo game since 2007’s Halo 3 gets some praise, then fades, and then is pointed to as a sign that the Xbox’s once-unstoppable franchise is hitting a wall. Halo 5, released in 2015, deserves a different reputation.
The new “Heist” mode for the Black Ops 4 beta is a more tactical take on Call of Duty, one that feels inspired by games like Counter-Strike and Payday.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is now in closed beta for PlayStation 4, and it’s an addictive, fast-paced, fresh change to the formula.
Heard of “sandbox games?” Well, now it’s literal: You can play as tiny, plastic soldiers in a sandbox as part of Call of Duty: WWII’s Days of Summer event. The seasonal fun also spans across Black Ops III, Modern Warfare, and Infinite Warfare, but this particular map is exclusive to WWII, and is one of the better ones.
Rewards are finally coming to players who reach the highest ranking in Call of Duty: WWII. The long-awaited and overdue Master Prestige rewards were finally teased on Sledgehammer Games’ Weekly Livestream earlier this month.
Nuketown will be in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Treyarch said during a livestream demoing more of the game’s multiplayer today. Jungle, Summit, and Firing Range from Black Ops, as well as Slums from Black Ops 2, will also be returning, although the new class-based mechanics will no doubt change how they play.
Zombies have invaded Call of Duty: WWII multiplayer for the month of June. Week one’s Infected mode was fun, even if it didn’t always feel balanced.
Nearly two years after it first launched, the space exploration game No Man’s Sky will finally get a proper multiplayer mode, developer Hello Games said last night.
If you’ve been on Call of Duty: WWII recently, you’ve probably realized the hot spot to rack up kills is the Shipment 1944 playlist. The classic-style map is a love-it-or-hate-it experience, as you’re either adding lots of kills to your ratio or just getting blown to pieces on the regular.
Call of Duty: WWII’s Headquarters, created as the game’s mostly non-violent social space, has now been repurposed as a multiplayer game map. It’s definitely a different vibe, but it works for some modes better than it does with others.
Monster Hunter: World added a new elder dragon last night that can only be fought by working together with 16 other players. I was eager to join the hunt until I realized that my hunter rank was too low. I had to slay five more dragons of my own first. In order to accomplish that task overnight, I called on help from…
The second DLC pack for Call of Duty: WWII is now available, taking players to historic Dunkirk, to Egypt, and even up into the sky for some aerial dogfighting—a first for the Call of Duty series, believe it or not.
Five months after the launch of Call of Duty: WWII, the game’s long-awaited Paint Job feature is finally available for crafting the tacky camo of your dreams. For my part, I have created the gun of your nightmares, assuming your nightmares largely revolve around fashion disasters.
Call of Duty: WWII’s March 13 update lets you hunt leprechauns, and it is exactly as ridiculous as it sounds. Sledgehammer Games has launched the “Operation: Shamrock and Awe” event just ahead of Saint Patrick’s Day, so there’s plenty of tacky gear, décor, and trolling leprechauns.
Black Ops III is still receiving new content, and coming back to Treyarch’s 2015 title is a lot of fun. An update on March 5 has added a snowy variant of the Redwood map and the addition of the popular Infected game mode, which became available to play on March 6.
After a bit of maintenance earlier today, For Honor’s dedicated servers finally went live on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Let me tell you: they feel good—real good—and it only took a year for that to happen.
It’s been almost four months since Call of Duty: WWII launched with its ambitious new Headquarters social space, but one promised HQ feature is still missing in action.
