STILL PLAY­ING

EDGE - - STUDIO PROFILE -

Des­tiny: The Taken King PS4

With Bungie ru­moured to be ditch­ing paid DLC in favour of cos­metic IAP, it must find new ways to keep play­ers on the hook. Its work to date has been ex­cep­tional, with a steady flow of events and hid­den ex­otic weapons. Just as the pace seemed to be dip­ping, a mas­ter­ful Hal­loween event ar­rived. When we were done with that, Tri­als Of Osiris re­turned. Great stuff, but we need to be play­ing other things right now. Bungie, can you dial it back a bit?

DriveClub Bikes iOS

A year since launch, DriveClub re­mains one of the most beau­ti­ful and thrilling rac­ing games out there, and now you can zip around its picturesque tracks on ter­ri­fy­ingly pow­er­ful bikes thanks to Evo­lu­tion’s lat­est up­date. The ma­chines look, sound and feel fan­tas­tic, squirm­ing un­der ac­cel­er­a­tion and scream­ing as you open the throt­tle, while new events re­quire you to pull wheel­ies and en­dos for points.

Un­til Dawn PS4

As the nights draw in, we re­visit some bad choices in Su­per­mas­sive’s thriller. While a few jump scares have lost their power for be­ing ex­pected, trac­ing new path­ways and try­ing to pre­vent un­nec­es­sary blood­shed is still a nervy task, es­pe­cially with a sea­sonal pump­kin hunt to get us scour­ing the dark cor­ners we might oth­er­wise avoid. Steady­handed ex­pe­ri­ence still can’t pre­vent a few gory ends, ei­ther, fresh what-ifs un­furl­ing like the but­ter­fly wings that mock us so.
