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

Ghostbusters 3 teaser trailer reveals summer 2020 release and the return of the Ecto-1

(Correction: This article previously stated that Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd would return for Ghostbusters 3. One Class-5, full-roaming teaser trailer has just hit the 'net for Ghostbusters 3, a new sequel set in the same universe as the original 1984 film and its sequel. It's brief, as most teaser trailers are, but features the triumphant return of the classic Ecto-1, the modified Cadillac with that distinct siren signaling that someone's called the Ghostbusters. That's not to say that Reitman

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

Fortnite V-Bucks linked to large-scale money laundering scheme

That being said, I have to admit I never expected to see it used as a vehicle for money laundering by international criminal groups. According to a joint investigation from The Independent and cyber security firm Sixgill , Fortnite's premium currency, V-Bucks, is being used to launder money. Simply put, criminals use stolen credit cards to buy V-Bucks, then resell the V-Bucks in order to launder or 'clean' their profits. The goal of money laundering is relatively simple: to render illicit money

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.

Why Metro Exodus is the antidote to Fallout 76

Eliot famously wrote in his poem ‘The Hollow Men’ and it’s a quote which swirls around our head as we navigate the deteriorating wasteland of Metro Exodus. Rather than hand-holding you through where to go, Metro Exodus requires you to navigate the old-school way, using a compass and a map. Caspian catapults us later into the story of Metro Exodus. Metro Exodus is due to release for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on February 15, 2019. Make sure to check out our Gamescom Metro Exodus preview, wher
