‘Hitman 2’ arrives on PS4, Xbox One and PC November 13th

2016's Hitman refresh from IO Interactive was a watershed moment for the long-running assassination and stealth game series. Even as the developer was essentially cut loose from Square Enix, it retained ownership over the franchise, signing a new publishing deal with Warner Bros. Now the company is ready to launch the next iteration in the popular stealth series. Hitman 2 will be released for PlayStation, Xbox and PC on November 13, 2018.

Zombie survival game 'Days Gone' hits PS4 next February 22nd

After being pushing the game into next year, Sony has announced when its zombie apocalypse game, Days Gone, will be released.

To celebrate the news, Sony dropped a new trailer, rife with cougars, motorcycles and hostile human survivors. If that sort of thing is up your alley, or, if The Last of Us' themes and characters were a little too subtle for you, maybe you'll want to give this a shot early next year. Based on our early impressions of the game, though, it sounds like Sony delaying the game was for good reason.

MSI has unveiled a 25-inch, 1080p NVIDIA G-Sync-compatible display with a scorching 240 Hz refresh rate and 0.5 millisecond response time. As you'd expect with those specs, the Oculux NXG251 (yes, that's the name) is aimed at eSports professionals and wannabes, so the $599 price tag reflects its high-end purpose. For that sum, however, gamers can expect a near-instant, lag-free response time and ghost-free images, even at 200 fps gaming speeds.

Zotac cut battery life to make its VR backpack smaller

PC virtual reality means that you are always tethered to a desktop, limiting your motion and how much you can suspend your disbelief. Companies like Zotac, HP and MSI thought the solution was to put the PC in a backpack, the only limit being the life of the batteries you could carry with you. But all three were heavy and clumsy, with an understandably short lifespan. Two of those issues Zotac is hoping to remedy with its VR GO 2.0, the third? Not so much.
