According to a Swiss retailer, another Assassin's Creed title could be launching on the same day as Unity.

A World of Games listing has surfaced on the internet for a game called Assassin's Creed: Rogue; while the page has already been removed, it listed Rogue as releasing on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on October 28th. A last-gen Assassin's Creed game has long been rumored, and Ubisoft recently confirmed that we would be hearing more details for the title soon.

What do you guys think? Could this listing have been a leak? Sound off in the comments!

A quick reminder that PlayStation Now's beta begins tomorrow. North American PlayStation 4 users will be able to stream numerous PlayStation 3 titles to their consoles for a set rental price, with costs as low as $1.99.

Jack Buser, one of the minds behind PlayStation Now, offered an update on Sony's plans to offer a subscription model, along with the current à la carte option. There are no concrete details at this time though.

"We're working diligently to bring a subscription option to gamers to compliment our rental offering for PlayStation Now. We believe that offering both of these options would provide gamers the freedom to discover and play games in ways that weren't before possible." — Jack Buser, Senior Director of PS Now

Far Cry 4 ditches the island setting of the first and third entries in the series and sends the protagonist up into the Himalayas instead. There is warfare, warlords, and, to sum it up, war. Also, a fabulously dressed Troy Baker with an anger management issue.

Ubisoft has revealed just how the world of Far Cry 4 was dreamed up by developers. Seeking inspiration from real villages and people in the Himalayas, Ubisoft has done its homework on the subject matter.

Activision has announced that a ton of players were attracted to the sneak peek of Destiny; 4.6 million people on current-generation and last-generation systems turned on the beta and explored the world(s) of Bungie's sci-fi shooter. That makes it the most successful beta for a new IP of all time.

"We were totally blown away by the number of people who played the beta. We surpassed even our own goals and the feedback was invaluable. We cannot thank the community enough, the response was humbling and in the weeks ahead we'll be working hard to ensure that Destiny lives up to the expectations at launch." — Pete Parsons, Chief Operating Officer at Bungie

During the San Diego Comic-Con, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment released a new story trailer for the upcoming game Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor. Key points, such as the identity of Talion's wraith, as well as his connection to Sauron and the rings, are revealed within the trailer. Not only are more details divulged, but also a new character: the Elvin Smith, Celebrimbor. The trailer is quite thrilling and does well making one excited for the game.

The official US PlayStation Blog has just rolled out this August's list of freely available games for PlayStation Plus members, and, if I may say so myself, it's quite a lineup. Following the now-standard formula, there are six games, two for each platform, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PS Vita.

Interesting to note here is that half of the games on the list are actually multiplatform. The games are as follows: the two dimensional rogue-like puzzler Road Not Taken (PlayStation 4), the simultaneously two and three dimensional non-linear adventure Fez (PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PS Vita), the first-person shooter Crysis 3 (PlayStation 3), the beautiful and atmospheric exploration title Proteus (PlayStation 3, PS Vita), the experimental infographics-driven platformer Metrico (PS Vita), and the fantasy action-platformer Dragon's Crown (PlayStation 3, PS Vita).

Activision has released yet another trailer for the upcoming first-person shooter Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, this time highlighting the game's single-player story and plunging viewers into the anarchic and armed world of Sledgehammer's latest project. The trailer also revealed that the game's multiplayer unveiling is on August 11th.

Kevin Spacey is featured once again; the Academy Award nominated actor plays the leader of private corporation Atlas, a company called upon by the government to stop terrorists. Atlas doesn't seem to be the nicest guys in the business, though. It'll be interesting to see if the protagonist of the game is actually a villain in the grand scheme of things.

A little over a week ago popular YouTube gamer PewDiePie got his hands on the upcoming survival-horror game The Evil Within from Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami and developer Tango Gameworks. Since then, he's been uploading videos of the gruesome game, showing off gameplay in big chunks of over fifteen minutes each. If you missed the first video, you can check it out here. Today we've got two more videos, so hit the jump if you want to check out over half an hour of footage from The Evil Within.

The Last of Us had pretty solid visuals on PlayStation 3, but Naughty Dog aims to raise the bar with The Last of Us Remastered on PlayStation 4. The new and improved version will feature upgraded graphics that include a resolution of 1080p with a consistent 60 frames per second. So how much of a difference does the generational jump make? Thanks to a new graphics comparison video, you can be the judge of that for yourself! Hit the jump and let us know what you think, but keep in mind that YouTube won't be displaying the improved frame rate.

There's been a lot of talk recently about the possibility of The Last of Us receiving a sequel, and for good reason. Naughty Dog's blockbuster PlayStation 3 game was one of the most critically acclaimed games of the past console generation and the fastest-selling new IP in Sony history. Naughty Dog is still weighing their options when it comes to a sequel, but the stars of the game are on board.

Popular voice actor Troy Baker revealed last week that he would reprise his role as Joel if asked, and now Ashley Johnson (who made her video game debut as Ellie) has also expressed interest. Johnson says that the staff of Naughty Dog is a "wonderful group of people to work for" and said that she would "definitely do it again." It almost seems like it's just a matter of time now.
