Dying Light Release Date Coming Early for PS4, Xbox One Owners

Dying Light

Dying Light was supposed to be one of the premier zombie games for the PS4 and Xbox One as the consoles completed their second holiday season.

Techland and Warner Bros. Interactive have confirmed an earlier Dying Light release date than planned. And this time they even provided a specific release date rather than a month-long window.

WWE 2K15 PS4 Xbox One

The WWE 2K15 release date for PS4 and Xbox One has been delayed by almost a full month, 2K announced today.

Skylanders Trap Team Kaos Doom Challenge

Toys for Bob created the Skylanders franchise, giving gamers and Activision's accountants millions of reasons to be thankful. Last year's outing, Swap Force, introduced a creative new way to play the game under the guidance of Vicarious Visions. This year's game, Skylanders Trap Team, includes the new ability to trap more than 40 different mini-bosses in a portable trap.

Guardians of the Galaxy Yondu Joins Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes

Disney Infinity Yondu Guardians of the Galaxy

The toys-to-life genre has blossomed in recent years, with new game franchises surfacing in every corner.
