El Presidente needs beta testers for Tropico 5, which has just received its first ever gameplay trailer teasing the passages of time we'll be going through as we lead our Caribbean nation - from colony to cosmopolitan.

In the latest Tropico we start in a colonial era and work our way through to the modern age, with the island and political forces changing as we go, and we control our extended family.
Just because Slightly Mad Studios has announced racing MMO World of Speed, it doesn't mean something untoward has happened to their Oculus Rift and 4K supporting racer, Project Cars. It's still due in 2014.

Ubisoft's Rocksmith 2014 will support all of the original game's song DLC, which is something this genre overall has a spotty record (pun!) on. Developer Mike Madavi made the revelation during a Q&A video.
Additional news to delight fans is that the original game's cable is also supported by Rocksmith 2014, so no new bit of wire to hook up your guitar with PC or console; recycle the old.
