With Monster Hunter: World, one of Capcom’s most beloved series returns to console, launching on PS4 in early 2018. Taking on the role of a Guide Researcher, your hunter explores a newly discovered continent, filled with creatures big and small that you can track, discover, study…and of course, hunt. For science! While longtime fans of the series will likely be invested from the get-go, expanding the world beyond handheld platforms opens its doors to a world of new possibilities… possibilities that I got to experience as a first-time hunter at Capcom’s offices.

Hey again, PlayStation fans! Now that Resident Evil 7 biohazard is out, I’m sure plenty of you have spent hours upon hours playing the game. We’ve got great news for those of you itching for even more RE7 — the first pack of DLC called Banned Footage Vol. 1 is available today on PS4, and Banned Footage Vol. 2 is just around the corner.
It all started with a simple message – “Get out of the house.” Over three million PlayStation 4 players (and counting) have downloaded the Resident Evil 7 Teaser: Beginning Hour demo since it was announced at E3 earlier this year, hoping to escape from the dilapidated mansion. Navigating the decrepit hallways, players would soon find their attempt to escape cut off with another message: “Welcome to the family, son.” Since then, the community has discovered multiple endings, experienced strange occurrences, and even found a dangerous-looking axe. Now, with the final update, “Midnight,” available today, you’ll discover how it all comes together.
