Crystal Dynamics release Marvel's Avengers footage

Public showing of the game has previously been limited to cinematic trailers, with the gameplay footage only being shown behind closed doors.

Both fan and critical reception has been mixed at best, but I'm holding out hope that Crystal Dynamics can make it work.

In the expanded footage below, we get a good look at the "A-Day" prologue mission, which will act as a tutorial for players. The gameplay shows off how the Avengers handle and the gameplay associated with their respective powers and abilities.

Marvel's Avengers will see players stepping into the boots (or torn shorts) of Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, and Black Widow on May 15, 2020, for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

Australia's DayZ ban reversed by Classification Board

Survival shooter DayZ is no longer in the crosshairs of the Australian Classification Board, following worldwide changes to the game.

The Classification Board was seeking to ban all copies of the title in Australia due to cannabis being available as an in-game consumable.

In response, developer Bohemia Interactive has removed all instances of the item – not just in Australia, but in all other countries as well.

Sony to acquire Insomniac Games

Sony to acquire Insomniac Games

Sony is finally bringing Insomniac Games into its fold of Worldwide Studios.

The publisher made the announcement today via Twitter:

"Joining the WWS family gives Insomniac even greater opportunities to achieve our studio vision of making positive and lasting impressions on people's lives," said Insomniac founder and CEO Ted Price.

Insomniac's portfolio is packed with iconic PlayStation franchises, including Ratchet & Clank, Resistance, and Spyro the Dragon.

Not being a first-party studio however, has allowed Insomniac the freedom to work with other platforms, as it did with 2014's Sunset Overdrive on the Xbox One.

Anthem lead producer Ben Irving leaves BioWare

Anthem lead producer Ben Irving is parting ways with BioWare for an "exciting opportunity at another gaming company."

"I will forever be grateful to all the people who gave me the chance to work on great products with amazing people," wrote Irving. "I believe Anthem has a bright future - there is a great team working on it and I look forward to following its progress (and playing it!) from the sidelines.

"I have really enjoyed interacting with the Anthem community - Streams, Twitter and Reddit. Through the good times and the tough times. You all are in great hands with [Jesse Anderson] and [Andrew Johnson] (and have been for some time now). I wish nothing but the best for all of you."
