  • 4A Games has said previously that Metro Exodus will be more open than the previous games in the Metro series, but it won’t be a completely open world like that of Stalker. For one thing, individual levels in Exodus will be much larger than anything seen in the previous games. The biggest outdoor level in Last Light was roughly “200 meters to 100 meters,” Prokhorov said,. That means everything from weapons, attachments, and other loot, to “frozen stories” that reveal more about the game world and
    Metro Exodus is bigger than 2033 and Last Light combined

  • Toys R Us’ status as the most important toy store in town left it cavalier, if cocky at times, according to conversations with former employees, executives and industry insiders, who spoke to CNBC on the condition of anonymity. The story begins with Lazarus, the store’s visionary who wanted the “R” written backward — an ode to childlike scrawl. Lazarus, who has been described as one of the great merchants of his time, expanded a baby furniture store he owned into a toy store. In its heyday in th
    Toys R Us built a kingdom and the world's biggest toy store. Then, they lost it.

He was also recently awarded a BAFTA Fellowship, a lifetime achievement award and “the highest accolade BAFTA can bestow up an individual.” “This sort of award feels like something you get when you’re done, but I still feel like I’m working towards figuring out how to make games. “I don’t think I’ve made my best game yet, and I feel like that’s

  • Intel’s high-end X299 platform includes processors like the Core i9-7960X and Core i9-7940X. Those CPUs can regularly cost more than a thousand dollars, but a matching motherboard doesn’t have to.

  • Crusader Kings, everyone’s favorite medieval dating, plague, and war simulator, is coming to the tabletop. Like the video game, much of Crusader Kings was about diplomacy, bartering, and alliances. It’s very much the kind of story engine that fans of Crusader Kings on PC will enjoy. That said, it’s very much the kind of story engine that fans of Crusader Kings on PC will enjoy. In just a handful of plays of the game I’d seen the kinds of stories that you play dozens of hours of the PC game for.

We’ve summarised the five biggest things coming to Battlefield V you need to know about. Fortunately, we need not have worried – War Stories will make a return in Battlefield V and it’ll tell a range of stories from across the front in World War 2.

  • EA’s Battlefield series has had a season pass pretty much since season passes were A Thing. And so, EA and DICE are killing the season pass for Battlefield 5. Something has to replace the season pass, right? Each season has its own Battle Pass, and each pass contains a series of unique challenges and rewards for completing them. Put a bit more simply, Tides of War is like a season pass, but broken up into smaller, more easily digested chunks.

  • Senior Producer, and Battlefield stalwart, Lars Gustavsson makes a standard boast at the start of my extensive, behind the scenes look at Battlefield 5. Oh, and you’d better keep a Medic handy, because health won’t regenerate to 100% either – you’ll need to heal for that. But you’ll be missing out on much of Battlefield 5’s best if you do go solo. There is a lot to unlock and use in Battlefield 5 and it’s done in a number of ways. So, you’ll perhaps need to get 50 revives on a certain map, then

As hinted at earlier this week, the long-serving shooter returns to World War 2, and marks the occasion with its first trailer. Here’s that:Moreover, EA says owners of the game’s Deluxe Edition can check in early via its Early Enlister Access initiative from October 16.

  • Battlefield 5 will not have a Premium Pass. Maps, modes, or anything that might divide players will be free, including events that will be run as part of BF5’s new months-long Tides of War chapters. What exactly will be for sale after Battlefield 5 releases hasn’t been announced in detail, but EA has assured us that anything you can buy, you can earn by playing, and that players won’t be able to buy an “unfair gameplay advantage”—so we’re talking about cosmetic items only, presumably. It’s proba

  • Acer surprised everyone during its annual keynote event in New York City when it unveiled the brand new Acer Swift 5, a whole new take on its flagship 15-inch laptop. That’s quite a lot for a 15-inch laptop weighing about as much as a 13-inch device.

  • During today’s livestream, and also a pre-brief we viewed yesterday, EA revealed that Battlefield 5 will include a 4-player co-op mode. The last time we saw co-op in Battlefield was in Battlefield 3’s 2-player campaign. Battlefield 5’s co-op won’t be quite the same. Combined Arms won’t include just one set of static missions. Rather than a conventional singleplayer campaign, Battlefield 5 will also include War Stories, like Battlefield 1.

  • Twitch and the BBC have partnered up to bring you a Doctor Who marathon that will cover over 500 episodes from 26 seasons that ran between 1963 and the 1980s. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Twitch event without special emotes – there are 14 of them, plus a special Tardis Cheermote for subscribers. A special ‘Doctor Who Watch to Win Extension’ will also be active, which will give fans in the US, UK, and Canada the chance to win a bunch of Doctor Who prizes, or even a trip to Comic Con in London late

  • But if you can’t use a keyboard and you can barely use a mouse, how do you play games on PC? Microsoft is changing that by creating the Xbox Adaptive Controller (XAC). They’re industry standard, so players will be able to purchase a variety of switches to fit their needs. Because the XAC emulates a standard Xbox controller, Windows will automatically recognize it. For $99, players with disabilities will be able to purchase the base model of the new Xbox controller.

  • Acer has updated their Swift 5 lineup of notebooks with the unveiling a 15″ version during its ‘Next@Acer’ keynote event held in New York City. The laptop still weighs in at under 1kg (2.2lb), and features some sturdy construction from magnesium and aluminium alloys. There’s also a USB 3.1 Type-C port, two USB 3.1 Type-A ports, HDMI, and SD card reader. There’s also a fingerprint reader to quickly log in using Windows Hello.

  • After two years of work, the small team at Norwegian developer 4Bit Games recently released Prime Mover, an open-ended puzzle game about building circuit boards that fulfill “a wide variety of logic and computer science-inspired problems.” Admittedly, my experience as a computer scientist amounts to tinkering with redstone in Minecraft, but nearest I can tell Prime Mover’s puzzles are about inputs, outputs and the rules that connect them. Rather than a single solution, each level has a goal, and

  • Apparently I wasn’t the only one who thought so, as Stoneshard recently passed its Kickstarter funding target. So, developer Ink Stains Games has moved onto stretch goals like more environments, dungeons, classes and races. Ink Stains also released a free demo which covers the game’s prologue, which you can download on Naturally, you won’t be locked to the demo character in the full game, either. Stoneshard sounds almost dangerously ambitious, so it’s nice to see it hit its Kickstarter
