In a trailer released by Rockstar, it is now confirmed that GTA V (for PS4, Xbox One, PC) will have a first-person mode.  Judging by the trailer, it seems the game will translate nicely to the new viewing perspective, as well as seeing all the incredible details in the game up close now.  The game will run at 1080p on Xbox One and PS4, with the PC version capable of up to 4K resolution.  GTA V will be available on Xbox One/PS4 on November 18th, and on PC in January.

Dawngate, EA's first foray into the MOBA scene, is unfortunately being shut down; according to a reddit posting.  After being in beta for 18 months, six of those being open to public, the game hasn't shaped up to be what the developers were hoping for.  Anyone who has spent money towards Dawngate should get a full refund within the next 10 business days.  The game will remain open for the next 90 days before being shut down for good.

EA is celebrating pools, which are now being added to The Sims 4.  Above is a trailer that showcases the returning feature.

Sony is teasing the PS4 Playstation Plus line-up for the months of December and January.  The PS4 games for December will be Injustice: God Among Us Ultimate Edition and Secret Ponchos, while January will include PS4 games inFAMOUS First Light and The Swapper.
