Watch: What's next for Overwatch?

Don't get me wrong, I like Overwatch's animated shorts, but had tomorrow's Bastion-led cinematic been the only thing we saw revealed at this year's Gamescom, I'd have felt a little shortchanged.

Star Wars Battlefront's incoming new mode sounds incredible

Star Wars Battlefront's DLC might have got off to a slow start - I haven't got on at all with the Bespin or Outer Rim packs, but I've enjoyed pretty much everything else that has come to the game since its launch in December - but the next pack sounds like the real deal. Show More Summary
