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

While work on a new BioShock game has reportedly been in progress at a "top-secret" 2K studio since at least 2018, recent activity seems to lend credibility to that rumor. Barely a week later, this job listing from 2K Publishing in Novato, California was unearthed, advertising for an 'End Game Design Lead'. Nothing about that screams "BioShock", except when you take into account this reddit thread, which compiles all of the current talent working at the Novato studio. It's a substantial list, wi

What’s the greatest single sound in a game?

Forget graphics for a second because great sounds can have just as much impact as beautiful visuals in a game. Maybe it's the sound of a starship engine or some sort of sci-fi machinery, the noise of a cool weapon firing or a stirring level-up sound. That's our burning question this week: What's the greatest single sound in a game? The Imp SFX and other Doom sounds are available in .WAV format here. And then I remember: it's the bright pastel colours that draw me in at first, and then it's the g

This free benchmark wants to evaluate your PC’s ray tracing capabilities

The latter is more demanding, with ray traced reflections rendered at the same resolution as the scene. To give an example of the Very High setting, at 1920x1080, ray-traced reflections get rendered at "approximately" 1357x763. "CryEngine's ray tracing technology is both hardware and API agnostic and will run on most mainstream contemporary AMD and Nvidia GPUs, whereas other ray tracing methods are typically bound to GPU solutions with dedicated RT cores.

Diablo 4 director on loot: ‘Getting this right is at the top of our minds’

A post-BlizzCon update from Diablo 4 game director Luis Barriga recaps what was undoubtedly a better experience for the studio than last year's show, saying that the team was "floored by the overall reception—especially from long-time Diablo players." It will be the first in a series of quarterly updates where we'll share behind-the-scenes looks at our progress going forward," Barriga wrote. Personally, I'm mad about the always-online requirement, but that's a carryover from Diablo 3 and doesn't
