You can target campaign buildings during sieges in Total War: Three Kingdoms

In Total War: Three Kingdoms, a settlement's buildings will be viable targets during a siege. That means that you can initiate a siege, target and wreck say, a granary, and then retreat. The granary will now be destroyed on the campaign map, leaving the enemy deprived of its benefits. 

That's what Total War developer Creative Assembly told us during our hands-on demo at E3 this year. The trade-off for targeting buildings in this specific way, of course, is that if you later want to capture that city yourself, you'll have to rebuild the granary.

Nintendo Switch and Xbox One Minecraft cross-platform trailer hammers home lack of PlayStation support

Minecraft's Better Together version finally launches today for Nintendo Switch, and a new trailer has dropped to play up its cross-platform capabilities.

Xbox One and Nintendo Switch owners can now play Minecraft as if they were on the same platform but notably - as the trailer hammers home - it is just Nintendo and Xbox on board. Not Sony.
