In fact, over half of the entries on our Top 10 Games On PlayStation 4 list are on sale right now, so if you've fallen behind, now would be a good time to catch up.

Is The Next Overwatch Hero A Giant Robot Spider?

Is The Next Overwatch Hero A Giant Robot Spider?

The internet is abuzz with rumors, theories, speculation, and conjecture after yesterday's reveal of Efi Oladele.  What character could this mean? It's not likely that Blizzard will send an 11-year old girl into the heat of battle, so many current theories are guessing that it's a robot of her creation, or even that she'll pilot drones or mechs from the safety of the loadout zone (or off the map entirely).

As with the elaborate Sombra reveal, every possibility is being explored on the deepest corners of the internet and especially on the highly active Overwatch subreddit. Everything from Efi being some distant relative of Doomfist (Really he's still got to be the next hero coming, right, right?!) to being the creator of yes, a giant robot omnic character that also happened to grace some concept artwork that Jeff Kaplan stood in front of today at today's D.I.C.E. Summit. The same crazy spider thing also showed up very briefly in a Sombra video. Kaplan was quick to point out that "that character isn't who we think it is" but who knows what that means.

Here's Everything Included In Tomorrow's Free Titanfall 2 Update

Titanfall 2 is receiving its first major update of 2017, which adds a new mode, new maps, and a slew of overall improvements.

Live Fire mode, as we've previously covered, is a pilots-only mode with a focus on chaotic gunfights and daring escapes. The six-on-six matches feature no respawns and see teams battling over control of a single neutral flag. Live Fire will launch with two new maps designed specifically for the mode. 

Tomorrow's update offers a host of other features, including an overhauled matchmaking system and a "featured playlist" option that will rotate modes on a weekly basis and offer bonus XP. New faction intros, an execution move, and a new map for Coliseum mode are also included in the update, along with tons of minute balance fixes.

Capcom Announces Steam Release Date For Dead Rising 4

Released in December of last year, the PC version of Dead Rising 4 was originally a timed exclusive for the Windows 10 Store. Now that Microsoft's 90-day exclusivity period is nearly up, the zombie beat-'em-up will soon be available on Steam.

Starting today, Steam users can pre-order Dead Rising 4 before its release on March 14th. The game's announcement trailer promises more of the bloody, over-the-top action and tongue-in-cheek humor that fans of the series have come to expect. Check out the trailer below for the official announcement (PC players should note Frank's take on "robust monitor support").

Jeff Kaplan Talks Overwatch's World, Shows Spider-Like Character

Jeff Kaplan Talks Overwatch's World, Shows Spider-Like Character

At this year's D.I.C.E. Summit in Las Vegas, NV, a handful of game developers were asked to share their insight regarding the theme of "world building." The first speaker to take the stage was Blizzard's Jeff Kaplan, Overwatch's game director. Kaplan began his talk by focusing on Blizzard's cancelled game, Project Titan.

On the day Project Titan was put on indefinite hold, Blizzard disbanded its development team, moving some people to assist in the ongoing development of World of Warcraft and others to other internal projects. Kaplan and 40 other people weren't moved, however, and were instead tasked to make something new within six short weeks. If they didn't create a project worth green-lighting, the team would disband and join other teams.

Kaplan said this short exploration window was stressful, but helped the team focus on something special. The team didn't want to completely abandon the work they had done on Titan, and felt they just missed the mark in figuring out what it needed to be. Titan's conceptual basis, "a future worth fighting for," became the point of inception for Overwatch. The hope was to use these words to dream up a vision of Earth players would want to inhabit and fight for.

Players can also utilize air combos, magic, and summons on their journey, which takes place 30 years before the events of FF XV. DualShockers is reporting confirmation from Square Enix that PS4 and Xbox One owners will be able to download the game for free, regardless of whether they purchased Final Fantasy XV or not.

Xbox Games With Gold In March Includes Evolve, Borderlands 2

With the month of March fast approaching, Xbox Games With Gold has announced the new titles which will be joining the lineup of free games on offer with the premium service.

This month, players will get to hop online in the beast-hunting asymmetrical multiplayer shooter, Evolve, and take on Layers of Fear, an atmospheric first-person horror title about an insane painter struggling to complete his masterpiece. According to GI's review, it's sadly not as awesome as that sounds.

Xbox 360 owners will be able to search for loot and take down Badasses in Borderlands 2, also playable on Xbox One via backwards compatibility. Meanwhile, Heavy Weapon is a decade-old (but still wholly enjoyable) arcade-style multiplayer shoot-em-up which offers four-player co-op for hours of fun and bonding with buddies.

New Elder Scrolls Online Trailer Shows First Morrowind Gameplay

Late last month, Bethesda revealed that The Elder Scrolls Online was going somewhere familiar in its first big expansion: Vvardenfell. The continent was the site of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, and it's also where players will be able to take their Elder Scrolls Online characters when the expansion arrives in June. If you're curious about how the place looks, a new gameplay trailer may satisfy at least some of that curiosity.

Take a look at the clip below to see giant mushrooms, crabs, Dwemer ruins, and a host of other familiar sights.
