Doom Eternal opening weekend the best of the franchise

What better time to hack and slash through demons than when the world is going to hell?

According to Bethesda, many of us had the same idea, as Doom Eternal is boasting the best opening sales weekend in the franchise' 27 years.

While exact figures haven't been shared, the publisher did note that the title doubled the launch weekend revenue of the 2016 reboot.

Although the games April 10 release stands firm, production, retail and distribution issues due to lockdowns around the world is likely to impact the availability of the game in stores and will see some people missing out.

PlayStation Plus April Games Revealed

Now that PlayStation Plus fans have had the chance to enjoy the first three Uncharted titles, Sony has revealed that they'll be able to complete Nathan Drake's journey when Uncharted 4 arrives on the subscription service in April.

Along with Uncharted 4, subscribers will also receive one of the best Rally games in recent years Dirt Rally 2.0. Both titles will remain available to play (provided you add them to your library first), as long as players have an active PS Plus subscription.

It seems Sony announced April's offering a touch early, as the reveal trailer has since been made private. Regardless, each month's PS Plus games typically arrive on the second Tuesday of each month, so fans can expect to explore the beautiful world of Uncharted 4 and tear through the countryside in Dirt rally 2.0 on the 7th of Aril.

Here at Gameplanet, we're obviously huge fans of Uncharted 4 and consider it to be one of the best games on the PlayStation 4. In our review we called it "an incredible rollercoaster ride of a story that is both faithful to the series whilst adding new dimensions to much-loved characters."

Similarly, Rally fans are in for an absolute treat with Dirt Rally 2.0, which we called "a master-class in how to do the rally genre justice" in our review.

PlayStation 5 tech specs detailed in new presentation

The PS5's lead architect Mark Cerny has provided an incredibly detailed presentation regarding the design philosophies for the upcoming console, giving us some insight as to just what will be inside the box at launch.

Initially planned as a talk for now-postponed GDC, it's understandably dense and riddled with techno-jargon. Those hoping for the typical hype words and feature reveals are likely to have a sour taste in their mouth at the end of the 52-minute video.

There's a lot of in-depth discussion throughout, designed for developers more than consumers, however a number of insights into the consoles features were mentioned.
