We’re a month away from the release of God of War on the PlayStation 4, and the PlayStation Underground has released a preview of the game. This is a treat, because get to see fifteen minutes of actual live gameplay from the game. The players skip around a bit but it shows a great diversity of what looks to be some of the early parts of the game. This may not be God of War as we remember it, but this certainly looks like God of War.

Is that video not enough for you? Here’s a closer look at the game’s combat, along with interviews with some of the game’s developers.

While you’re all still reeling over the major announcements Nintendo made during today’s Nintendo Direct, I’m happy to remind you all that Splatfest is coming back to Splatoon 2 this weekend. This time, Splatfest is getting philosophical by asking the famous question, “What came first, the chicken or the egg?” Players will chose their team based on their answer to that question, Chicken or Egg.

Splatfest will begin at 11 PM Friday and will run for exactly 24-hours. You’ll need an internet-connected Nintendo Switch and the full version of Splatoon 2 to participate. If you want to get into the action as soon as the event starts, you can pick your team right now. Just be aware, once your team is picked you can’t change it.

And for those of you who missed it, here’s the official trailer for the first-ever premium Splatoon 2 DLC, Splatoon 2 OCTO.

The single-player OCTO expansion is coming later this summer.

Splatoon 2 is out now exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
