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

Stardew Valley multiplayer will officially launch in August

The moment we have all been waiting for is finally (almost) upon us: Creator Eric Barone, aka ConcernedApe, announced today that the official Stardew Valley multiplayer update will be out on August 1. Barone said that the release version of the update won't feature any "significant changes" from the beta that's currently underway. "Just a few last-minute bug fixes," he tweeted. If you don't want to wait for those last-minute tweaks and fixes before jumping into the Stardew multiplayer (but for s

Realm Royale’s class-based combat is clever but it leans too heavily on genre cliches

That's why Realm Royale, an Early Access spin-off of Hi-Rez's Paladins, first appealed to me. But an over-reliance on the same structure seen in every other battle royale makes it hard to appreciate. The main hook of Realm Royale is the class-based combat and abilities. As much as I like these ideas, though, they feel kind of lost in the all-too-familiar routine of battle royale games. I just wish Realm Royale expanded that vision to subvert more of the genre's stale tropes.

I ate my own dead body to stay alive in Early Access survival game The Wild Eight

There are wolves, but they both run faster than me and want to eat me themselves. There are mushrooms, and while they don't run faster than me—they don't run faster than anything—I've been poisoned by them before. It's also handy for cooking your own dead body. I noticed that the wolf's health hadn't been restored to full, so I came up with a strategy, much like my brilliant Eat My Own Dead Body To Fuel My Living Body strategy. Then I ate my dead body again, even though I had some wolf meat.

No Man’s Sky planned a ‘very light’ multiplayer that was spiked before launch

Read Pip's words on what it's like to explore No Man's Sky Next with three other people, and know that a "very light" multiplayer component was envisioned, but spiked, before launch. When asked specifically about the absence of multiplayer at launch, Murray tells Eurogamer that Hello Games "talked about the earlier than we should have". "We would go way down some routes sometimes and they wouldn't turn out to be a good idea," Murray tells EG. Murray reckons NEXT's multiplayer "totally changes th

No Man’s Sky Origins mod ‘aims to restore the original vision’ of the game

If you know anything about No Man's Sky, you'll likely know it was criticised at launch.

What it’s like to explore No Man’s Sky Next with three other people

I’m playing No Man’s Sky Next—the fourth update for the game since launch and the one which brings true multiplayer to the game’s enormous universe—with three of the development team. But that then coloured the whole rest of the time I was playing.”He comes back to that story later in the day to illustrate how the existing No Man’s Sky experience sets up slightly different multiplayer expectations than other games. “In any other game that [moment] wouldn’t be surprising, but because of the scope

Named The Light Keeps Us Safe, it's billed as a "procedurally-generated apocalypse" with "unique light-based interactions and challenges." And, look, a trailer:With its sci-fi themes and aggressive machine-like aggressors, The Light Keeps Us Safe appears to echo both of Big Robot's most recent games. Between the trailer above and its Steam page rundown, it looks like The Light Keeps Us Safe could pull from Sir's best bits. "Only can The Light keeps us safe. Again, The Light Keeps Us Safe enters

Cyberpunk 2077 frame by frame trailer series talks gun laws in Night City

Everything we learned from E3 2018 about Cyberpunk 2077 suggests Night City is a dangerous place. This time the series explores Night City's gun laws. If there are gun laws in Night City, they must be pretty lenient. "Gun laws are lax in Night City—anyone can own a gun," explains CD Projekt Red. "Leaving Night City is not an option," says the blurb below ominously.
