Square Enix chucked out another trailer for its upcoming RPG Final Fantasy 15 Jump Festa 2015, an annual anime convention in Japan. There's a little bit of gameplay, but it's mostly cutscenes shedding more light on the game's plot.

Which sums up Final Fantasy as a series pretty well, actually. As is traditional with the series, I spent most of my time watching this getting annoyed with everyone's haircuts. Though the open-world style gameplay does look intriguing.

PayDay 2's Diamond Heist DLC is out now, and if you fancy playing as the woman at the centre of the mission you can pick up a new character pack in order to unlock bad-tempered Irish burglar Clover.

The snappily named Clover Character Pack adds a whole new class, new melee and ranged weapons, and inevitably a new mask to wear while on the job.

Any zombie game worth its salt needs chainsaws. This is an immutable fact, and one that Day Z developer Bohemia has finally acknowledged with the release of the entertaining if impractical weapon in Patch 0.52, just in time for Christmas.

Actually there's a few interesting new items added in the new patch; if the primitive delights of the 'Stone Knife' don't sway you, perhaps the 'Long Sword' or the 'Meat Cleaver' will? And don't forget to top off your zombie-fighting look with the 'Full Ghillie suite'.

You know what World of Tanks could really do with? More tanks. There's only around five million in the game already, which is such a paltry number. Developer Wargaming clearly agrees with me, which is why players will soon be able to get their hands on 10 new British vehicles in Update 9.5.

The new roster consists of light tanks, mediums and tank destroyers, and contains such famous lumbering metal coffins as the Sherman Firefly and Achilles Tank Destroyer. There's a new vehicle for each Tier from II to X.

Developer Zero Point Software has released the second co-operative campaign map for tactical FPS Interstellar Marines, a stealth-based operation to retrieve vital research data from a heavily defended military base.

What could possibly go wrong? “Starcrown is all about stealth - using your brain, not just your trigger finger," writes creative director Kim Haar Jørgensen. Oh yeah. That.

It must be pretty busy in the offices of Larian Studios these days. Not only is the development team working on new titles, they're also adding a bunch of new content to hit RPG Divinity: Original Sin.

One such addition that will please fans of the already rather tricky game is a new 'Hardcore' difficulty mode. This will give enemy mobs new skills and tactics to use against you in combat, forcing you to change up your existing strategies.

article image

Space Pirates and Zombies 2 is the sequel to MinMax Games' fun little top-down space exploration game. The follow-up adds, amongst other things, a fancy new third-person combat viewpoint, and a Strategic Starmap upon which the game's randomly generated story plays out.

It's also, obviously, got lots of zombies in it. Spaceship flying zombies, which are even more dangerous than the fast-running kind. Here's a new pre-alpha trailer with one such undead infestation in process.
