• Okay, this is a big ask, cause just about nobody does guns like Bungie does guns. But Borderlands has always been a shooter where the feeling of pulling the trigger and killing an enemy was fine, but not amazing. But how much better would Borderlands’ procedurally generated arsenal of wacky guns be if the feedback and punch of each gun was as satisfying as it is in Bungie’s Destiny 2? Those are lofty goals to aspire to, especially with procedurally generated weapons, but Gearbox has a big opport

  • Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds is the big dog in the battle royale fight, but Fortnite is quickly making up ground. Epic Games reported today that the game now has 40 million players, and that its peak concurrent user count recently broke the two million mark. It’s not as easy keeping up with Fortnite’s numbers as it is with most other games, because it’s not on Steam and so we can’t just hit the numbers whenever we feel like it to see how things are going. But even though it’s not an apples-to-a

  • The Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account sputtered to life last week with a single, solitary “beep”—the first (and so far, only) word to come out of it after four full years of silence. Now a rumor has surfaced on Polish site GRYOnline (via Google Translate) that a new trailer for the game will be shown at this year’s E3, and that it will in fact be playable—although only behind closed doors. The site said the claim comes independently from two separate sources, and while it’s obviously just a rumor a

Here are four of the best plays from the first week of Overwatch League. Shaz – Los Angeles Gladiators vs. Shanghai DragonsIn Overwatch, it isn’t only up to the DPS to come up with clutch kills.

  • The near-future military shooter Ironsight, which began closed beta testing late last year, will move into open beta on February 1, publisher Aeria Games announced today. The open beta will feature “a broad range of new content,” including four maps, a new mode, and a new mission. It features familiar game modes including Search and Destroy and Team Deathmatch, and a couple that are less self-evident called Secure Point and Resource Takeover. Players have access to more than 100 customizable wea

  • That’s unfortunate for consumers, though a recent drop in memory chip pricing has us crossing our fingers that RAM kits will finally come down in price in 2018. Reuters notes that high-end memory chip pricing declined 5 percent in the fourth quarter of 2017. Samsung is bearing the brunt of the market situation, particularly after its disappointing profit estimate. That said, analysts don’t expect the memory market to come crashing down. Smartphones are largely to blame for the rise in memory chi

  • I asked him about why he made Walking Heavy, and how he feels about it the two years he spent on it. What inspired you to make a stealth game with a godlike top-down perspective? I originally had so much more planned for Walking Heavy. Obviously most games can be boiled down to one repeated sequence, but Walking Heavy feels pre-boiled, like the summary of the core is almost the whole. Walking Heavy is available on Steam.

  • Back in November, RimWorld mastermind Tynan Sylvester declared the colony sim as in its “final stretch” of development. Now, the creator has confirmed Ludeon Studios is working towards version 1.0, and is “furiously refining the hell out of this thing” along the way. That’s according to this Reddit post , wherein Sylvester explains at length why implementing every player-made suggestion is unfeasible. Here, he also explores some of what Ludeon is currently working on ahead of full release. The g

  • Following a delay in late 2016, Neocore Games’ Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr arrived in Early Access last year. Now, the open-world isometric ARPG has launched its “biggest content update” to date, which brings with it a new map, class and the first chapter of its single player campaign. The latter is teased in the following short, which the developer says doubles up as a tutorial for what’s to come. More information on what the new class is all about can be found in this Steam Community

  • This week’s Fortnite Battle Royale map update is more than a mere tweak. And because the buildings are large, there’s a lot of close quarter combat inside of those buildings,” he says. The first picture is the old map, the second is the new one. We now have a mountain region, a farm region, a swamp region, and the old grass look is in a smaller part of the map. I’m sure fans will always wish a second map was in the pipeline, but the new update feels like it’s packed with enough new stuff to keep

  • Sim Settlements is so good it should be an official part of the game, said Chris following the launch of kinggath’s Fallout 4 settlers mod last year. “Supply lines are annoying to set up, and even more annoying to redefine as you unlock more settlements. With Sim Settlements, your settlers are happy to build their own towns—why shouldn’t they manage their own logistical needs as well?” As your network grows, the mod lets your supply lines maintain efficient routes without additional input—and yo

  • That must be what the makers of The Lord of the Rings Living Card Game are banking on, because it dispenses with PvP entirely. Due in Early Access on Steam soon, it’s based on an existing, and award-winning, physical card game from Fantasy Flight Games. The card game is officially licensed from the books, so the expected characters are all here, and operate much as expected. It’s also worth talking about how you play cards in the first place. I imagine it helps that they already have all the art

  • You could argue that American Truck Simulator is a boring game. American Truck Simulator asks nothing but that a shipment of cheese makes it to Winnemucca. There are currently four states in American Truck Simulator and they all beautifully convey the sheer size of the country. American Truck Simulator’s day-night cycle feels longer than most—long enough for an overnight drive to feel like a serious undertaking. American Truck Simulator is remarkable because it offers just the right amount of in

  • Monster Hunter: World is due on console next week, despite being pushed to autumn/fall on PC . We learned last week why this is the case , and also that it won’t include loot boxes and/or microtransactions when it lands. What it will give players, though, is some gorgeous locales to hunt unruly beasts within—such as the Coral Highlands. Observe:After a brief hands-on session at last year’s Gamescom, I must admit: I wasn’t overly impressed with the short section I played of an early Monster Hunte

  • The nominees for the 21st annual DICE Awards have been announced. PS4-exclusive Horizon Zero Dawn leads the way with ten nominations across the event’s 24 categories, however Cuphead pops up in five, while PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds features in four. One particularly strong grouping is the Outstanding Achievement in Game Direction category which has Gorogoa, Horizon Zero Dawn, Breath of the Wild, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy and What Remains of Edith Finch.

  • The last we heard from Chucklefish regarding Stardew Valley’s forthcoming multiplayer mode was that they were “pushing that beta back to Q1 2018 in order to make room for polish and QA.” Today, the game’s creator ‘ConcernedApe’ tweeted out a single screenshot, showing a four-player LAN game in progress. 4-player Stardew Valley LAN party at my house… it’s really fun.

  • You might know that Japanese developer Arc System Works is bringing 2D fighting game Dragon Ball FighterZ to PC later this year. But it’s also working on another anime fighter, BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle, and has just announced that it will land on Steam on June 5. You’ll be able to tag characters in and out of fights in a shower of blue lightning, fireballs and big hair-dos. The first of many, in fact, with 20 characters planned for DLC in total, doubling the size of the starting roster. I have

  • GTA V’s occasionally wonky physics make Los Santos the ideal place for ridiculous vehicle acrobatics. The team pumps out regular montages, each more ludicrous than the last, and it’s just released its ninth video (above). It’s called Dark Horizon 2, and it’s truly breathtaking. The team have even crafted a backstory for the video: nuclear attack has left Los Santos in ruins. The video is a sequel to Dark Horizon, a montage the team put out two and a half years ago.
