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

Shenmue re-releases were planned before third game reveal, says Sega exec

Last week, Sega revealed the first two Shenmue games, originally released in 1999 and 2001 for the Dreamcast, are coming to PC. Now, John Clark, Sega Europe's vice president of publishing, has said this was tentatively planned internally for several years. "We saw the talk surrounding the announcement of Shenmue 3, and we saw the demand for that game," Clark tells IGN. "We have a wishlist, and one of the first games that we brought out [from that list] was Valkyria Chronicles. I think that influ

Football Manager 2018 partners with the NHS to promote mental health awareness

Football Manager 2018 will host an in-game mental health awareness campaign in partnership with the UK's National Health Service. Designed to target "hard to reach" young men, digital pitch-side advertising boards promoting NHS Leeds Clinical Commissioning Group's MindMate website will be added to the game's 3D match engine. As reported by the BBC (via PC Games Insider), clicking through the ads takes players to the Mindmate homepage—which features mental health advice, resources, a games suite,

God of War: Ascension and God of War 3 look great on PC with this PS3 emulator

After a short holiday in Los Santos , Kratos debuts on PlayStation 4 consoles today with the arrival of God of War. Which seems like the perfect time to revisit the RPCS3 emulator. Having already brought esteemed console exclusives Demon's Souls and Persona 5 our way—and having showcased its ongoing work on Red Dead Redemption, Silent Hill: Downpour, Drakengard 3, and more—the project is in the process of bringing both God of War: Ascension and God of War 3 to desktops. First the latter, which f

It looks like Fortnite could possibly launch in China next week

As Luke Winkie wrote earlier this week, Fortnite may dominate the battle royale scene in the west, but it's not on top of the world. It's hardly a stretch to assume that this means Fortnite will launch in China next week. PUBG has managed, but Fortnite may not have the same momentum it did in the west: consoles aren't big in China. For some fascinating insight into Fortnite's chances in China, Luke wrote about it earlier this week. Or... it could have nothing to do with a China launch at all, as

PUBG ‘Metal Rain’ event has eight-player squads, flare guns and falling UAZs

This week's PUBG event, dubbed Metal Rain, takes us to Erangel, where eight-player squads (up to 12 squads in total) get to fight over flare guns hidden throughout the map's usual loot locations. And no, you won't be fighting with the flare guns, that would be silly. The flare gun spawn spots won't be fixed, so the event won't devolve into a desperate sprint to a series of hotspots. If the flare gun is shot inside the safe zone, care packages will be dropped, but if you shoot one outside of the

Netherlands Gaming Authority cracks down on loot boxes in some games

Interestingly, the Gaming Authority report also appears to highlight the inadequacies of existing law in dealing with issues like loot boxes. As a licence cannot be issued for this offering under the applicable legislation, these loot boxes are prohibited in the Netherlands," it states. Loot boxes on the lower end of the addiction risk potential scale, on the other hand, are more akin to "small-scale bingo." The report succinctly sums up the legality of loot boxes in its final section, stating,

Cyberpunk RTS Satellite Reign is free on Humble

In Satellite Reign, the spiritual successor to Bullfrog RTS Syndicate , you guide four agents through top-down battles in a neon cyberpunk city. We enjoyed it when it first released in 2015, and now you can get it for free on the Humble store. "I love how it blends tactical combat with an open-world structure and Deus Ex-inspired freedom," Andy said in his 80/100 review. "Creeping through a heavily defended enemy base unseen is a thrill, and if things go awry, there are lots of combat options to
