2013's Rocksmith 2014 getting remastered for 2016

Ubisoft's Rocksmith 2014 Edition is being remastered and re-released three years after its launch, without a change in title.

The remaster will bring new menus, additional practice tools, a customisable learning curve, and statistic tracking to the rhythm game and teaching tool.

In addition, the package will include six bonus songs:

Bob Marley & The Wailers - Three Little Birds
Elvis Presley - Suspicious Minds
FUN - Some Nights”
Jackson 5 - I Want You Back
Outkast - Hey Ya!
Train - Drops of Jupiter

Existing Rocksmith 2014 owners will gain access to the new features via a free update, but will have to purchase the six bonus songs separately.

Ubisoft shows off Watch Dogs 2's sunny San Francisco

New details about Watch Dogs 2's approach to open-world free roaming emerged today, via a commentated video from Ubisoft.

The game's San Francisco Bay Area setting - including Marin, Oakland, Silicon Valley, and Alcatraz - can be traversed on foot, in cars, or in boats, with improved vehicle physics by Ubisoft Reflections (of Driver: San Francisco fame).

An Assassin's Creed-esque hacking view can be toggled at any time, highlighting hacking opportunities and enemies within the immediate area; drones can also be deployed to further scout areas.

Destiny's PS4-first content won't come to XO this year

The exclusivity PlayStation holds over some of Destiny's content will continue until at least spring 2017.

In an interview with IGN, Bungie community manager David 'Deej' Dague confirmed the game's exclusivity schedule, which can also be found on its official site.

The time frame matches with when many are expecting Bungie's Destiny 2 to launch, which was recently reconfirmed thanks to the company's earnings report.
