Wolfenstein 3D is twenty years ago, and Bethesda is celebrating by launching the seminal first-person shooter as a free browser game. Simply go to this site or Wolfenstein's Facebook page. If you'd rather shoot Nazis on the go, then Wolfenstein 3D Classic Platinum for iOS will be free to download later today, for a limited time only. (Jim Sterling)
Ken Levine of Irrational Games has announced that BioShock Infinite will no longer be releasing in 2012, and that it is now slated for February 26 2013. In addition, the game will not be found at E3 or any other major event this year, not until Irrational is happy with it. (Jim Sterling)
There's a creature somewhere in Dragon's Dogma that will take the combined effort of active players and their loudmouth Pawns before it goes down. And it's a particularly nasty looking dragon. Of course it is! The collective attack of everyone playing the game online will eventually be enough to slay this Ur-Dragon, and the person who lands the final blow will receive a special reward. The rest of us unlucky adventures can earn common and rare items along the way, while all participants will appear in the game's hall of fame. (Jordan Devore)
Co-op will apparently make slight alterations to the narrative campaign to accommodate the new character -- a scar-faced man with a red-eyed RIG. Players will work together, using telekinetic powers and other abilities to manipulate the environment and help each other out. Ammo can be shared and characters can heal each other, but there's no revival. If one character dies, the pair will need to reload. (Jim Sterling)
