Metro Exodus is bigger than 2033 and Last Light combined

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

Bundled with a headset and a handful of Fortnite goodies, this GTX 1060-furnished MSI laptop is just $619 after rebate

Sure, that's after rebate, but think about it this way: you're already saving $280 before you have to mail anything in. For one, it's bundled with a headset, the MSI Gaming Headet S, and while I've never used these cans for myself, Newegg seems to think they're worth $100... because that's how much the headset costs if you buy it on its own. Then, if you're a Fortnite player, this laptop is eligible for the Nvidia "Counterattack" bundle deal that's going on right now. So, on top of the MSI GV62

The sci-fi game Ubisoft teased in Watch Dogs 2 has apparently been cancelled

Remember a couple of years ago, when a trailer for a fake game that appeared in Watch Dogs 2 turned out—maybe, according to sources—to be a real project called Pioneer? It looks like that report may have been accurate, because now it appears that the whole thing has been cancelled. But the trailer had already been inserted into Watch Dogs 2 by that point, and so out the door it went. I've emailed Ubisoft to ask if there's anything to all of this, and I'll update if I receive a reply. But unless

Nvidia is rumored to be readying a GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphics card

That's all well and good, but what if you just want a faster card without paying extra for ray tracing support? Nvidia may have you covered, if a rumor pointing to a GeForce GTX 1660 Ti is true. If those specs are true (and the card actually comes to fruition), it would likely perform in the neighborhood of a GeForce GTX 1070. During a recent Q&A session with VentureBeat, Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang said that the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, 1080, 1070 Ti, and 1070 have all sold out, and "in several more we

Katana Zero, which is a bit like a sidescrolling Hotline Miami, releases in March

I played a brief demo of Katana Zero back in 2015, when it was still being published by Adult Swim Games (these days, Devolver Digital is handling publishing duties for Askiisoft). I enjoyed what I played, though there's likely been a lot of iteration on the 2D action platformer since then, and I look forward to seeing how it's developed. The main thrust of it is that, as in Hotline Miami—which surely provided a bit of neon inspiration—one hit takes you out, so you've got to flawlessly execute e

Vortiger, the Black Prior, joins For Honor at the end of January

Vortiger, the Black Prior, a new For Honor hero that Ubisoft teased in December, will join the fight on January 31 for Year 3 Pass holders, at the beginning of the Year of the Harbinger. When she was defeated, the Order scattered, but now they're back to fight for Vortiger and make amends for their past misdeeds. Black Priors are heavy heroes who, in case you didn't notice it in the teaser, wield a funky longsword and bear a kite shield that's roughly the size of a VW Microbus. The Black Priors

Sapphire says GPU mining is making a comeback, outs a 16GB Radeon RX 570

Or to put it another way, Sapphire plans to launch a Radeon RX 570 graphics card with 16GB of GDDR5 memory, which is twice as much as a regular Radeon RX 570. This is the reason why Sapphire is plopping gobs of memory on a special Radeon RX 570 variant. "Although GPU mining will eventually tail off, there is a tremendous opportunity for first-movers to take advantage of the high rewards from early mining. "This will allow miners to see-saw between each one as the difficulty swings from back and

Warhammer 40,000: Gladius’ Tyranids DLC adds a gruesome but fitting faction

Unconventional 4X Warhammer 40,000: Gladius welcomed the ravenous tyranids to the war over the titular planet this week. I dove into the DLC to find out if the tyranids really deserve their bad reputation. Tom called it bland in his Warhammer 40,000: Gladius review, and while I have a more favourable opinion, it's often too straightforward. Gladius’ hook is that it’s as much a hexy tactics game as it is a 4X. The more of Gladius I play, the more convinced I am that diplomacy should stop being a

Ambitious space sim Genesis Alpha One shows off its roguelike bits in a new trailer

Genesis Alpha One, an unusual mix of roguelike shooter and spaceship building management game, has a new trailer that gives us a better look at how the roguelike elements work. It was announced back in 2017, but it looks like I've sleeping on Genesis Alpha One. As the captain of the titular ship, players have to traverse space to find new homes for humanity, or at least humanity’s DNA. On planets, there are resources to harvest and new aliens to meet (and also harvest), and from the looks of thi

Asus built a case with vertical expansion slots to show off your graphics card

Its newest model—and only its second standalone case in over a decade—is the ROG Strix Helios that was teased at CES. Asus classifies the ROG Strix Helios as a mid-tower. It has 10 expansion slots, though two of them sit vertically so you can display your graphics card in the same orientation. It will be interesting to see how seriously Asus takes the case market going forward. As for the ROG Strix Helios, the company has not yet announced a price or said when it will be available to buy.
