'Hidden Agenda' is the next social game from the 'Until Dawn' crew

Until Dawn was one of the more unique attempts at cinematic gameplay, mostly because it was ready made for playing with a group of your friends. Now its developers, Supermassive Games, are gearing up for an even more social experience with their next PlayStation 4 title, Hidden Agenda. It's one of the first games to support Sony's new PlayLink feature, which lets a group of people play together with their smartphones.

'Horizon Zero Dawn' will get an expansion, 'The Frozen Wilds,' this year

Horizon Zero Dawn is undoubtably one of the best titles in this console generation, and if you haven't gotten enough of the massive game, Sony has some good news for you. An expansion, entitled The Frozen Wilds, is set to launch later this year. An all-too-brief trailer was just shown off at Sony's big E3 press conference -- and as the name suggests, you're fully out in the wilderness here, making your way through a frozen tundra.

Sony wants you to control PlayStation games on your phone

Sony wants you to control PlayStation games on your phone

Sony doesn't think your friends should have to sit on the sidelines while you're engrossed in a PlayStation game... if anything, it wants them to dive in. It's launching PlayLink, an effort that lets you participate in PS4 games from your Android or iOS device. Think of it like you would Jackbox's party games, only on a grander scale -- you can play or influence all kinds of games without picking up a gamepad. Sony has only shown a handful of examples of what you can do, but the initial game roster includes the quiz game That's You, the drama Hidden Agenda (from the team behind Until Dawn), Frantics, Knowledge is Power and Singstar Celebration.

Superhot is coming to PlayStation VR

Just last year, Superhot VR came out for PC and consoles with a fancy new game mechanic: time only moves when you do. The virtual reality version came out for Oculus Rift last October with a couple of twists: the player stays in one place while the enemies advance. In the PlayStation pre-show today, the company announced that Superhot VR will be coming to Sony's PSVR system "in a couple of weeks."

We're live from Sony's E3 2017 keynote!

We're live from Sony's E3 2017 keynote!

At this year's E3, Microsoft and Sony have different approaches. As tradition dictates, Xbox got out of the gates first yesterday, but the console (and that "Scorpio" upgrade) had more to prove than PlayStation, which has been leading the market for several years now. So what will Sony's 2017 plans involve? If the last few years are any indication, the company will probably stay focused completely on the games. We reckon we'll hear news about the next Uncharted, hopefully something about that Last Of Us sequel, and an update on how Kratos is faring as a father in the next God Of War. Oh, and PlayStation VR: How's that doing?

'PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds' gets the polish it sorely needs

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is one of the hottest games in the PC multiplayer scene (it dominates Twitch streams), but calling it unfinished would be an understatement. There's one map, limited movement options and many bugs -- we've seen games all the buildings disappeared, for starters. However, the game is growing up quickly. In an interview with PC Gamer, Bluehole's Brendan Greene (aka PlayerUnknown himself) has shown off previously teased upgrades to the last-one-standing shooter that should flesh out its experience.

Alienware's E3 is all about gaming monitors and accessories

It might surprise you to learn that Dell is one of the best monitor makers around. At E3 today, the company announced that it's taking its display expertise deeper into the gaming arena with the launch of new Alienware monitors. They sport the brand's more elaborate aesthetic, but most importantly, they pack in fast refresh rates and support for either NVIDA's G-SYNC technology or AMD's Freesync (which reduces image tearing and choppinesss). Additionally, Alienware is launching a new suite of accessories, and it's bringing Intel and AMD's most powerful CPUs to its flagship Area 51 desktop.

Logitech gives gamers a reason to like wireless mice

Logitech gives gamers a reason to like wireless mice

Ask dedicated gamers why they prefer wired mice over wireless and you'll hear two familiar refrains: even a little wireless lag can be unacceptably high, and it's no fun to plug in or swap batteries mid-match. Logitech may have found a way to kill both birds with one stone. It's introducing a pair of technologies, Lightspeed and Powerplay, that theoretically make wireless gaming mice practical even if you depend on pinpoint accuracy. Lightspeed uses "end-to-end signal optimization" to cut latency down to a single millisecond, while the Powerplay system (above) relies on magnetic resonance to continuously charge your mouse. In short, it should perform about as well as a wired mouse without that pesky cord getting in the way.

'Age of Empires' is getting a 4K upgrade

Hey, Blizzard: you're not the only developer that can remaster a classic real-time strategy game. Microsoft has unveiled Age of Empires: Definitive Edition, a rework of Ensemble Studio's history-based conquer-the-map title. Graphics and sound get the obvious improvements with 4K resolution support, higher-detail visuals and a remastered soundtrack, but there are some functional improvements, too. There's a new narrative, Xbox Live multiplayer, new zoom levels (no more panning around to see a large-scale fight) and other unspecified gameplay improvements.
