• 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
    Metro Exodus is bigger than 2033 and Last Light combined

  • In stark contrast, Raven Ridge APUs have seen just a single driver update since launching February—it came last month. Here’s how the exchange went:RavenXXX2: How come there is no Raven Ridge support with the last two [Adrenalin] drivers? AMDMatt: APU drivers are updated every 3 months as WHQL releases only. While not the end of the world, it’s a little disappointing that Raven Ridge APUs will only see up to four WHQL driver releases per year. Nevertheless, AMDMatt’s comment suggests that AMD is

  • By way of speedrunning, roleplaying servers and performance subcultures, I love communities that tailor games to suit their own esoteric interests. To this end, Team Fortress 2’s annual trick jumping competition The Beginnings is underway. As reported by Rock, Paper, Shotgun, The Beginnings 5 hosts contests in trick jumping, speedrunning and a live race. “Beginnings 5 is an organized event for competition within TF2 jumping. This year we will be holding three separate competitions, a speedrun co

  • From its first-person focus to its ‘cool’ stat, diverse relationship options and neat concept artwork—we learned an awful lot about Cyberpunk 2077 at E3. We now know the PC specs its mouthwatering demo was powered by. Speaking about the demo, CD Projekt Red’s Marcin Iwinski told Kotaku what we were shown was a real build of the game, and was running on its REDengine4. Obviously, we’re a long way off learning what the game’s actual system requirements will be. Let’s:Before you go, our everything

  • In desperation I cracked open one of my Christmas Eve gifts, World of Warcraft: The Official Cookbook, and flipped to the recipe displayed on the cover: Slow-Roasted Turkey. By taking on the entire book, I got a double dose of food world tours encompassing the real world and Azeroth. My friends and family enjoyed the benefits of the project, and some learned about World of Warcraft for the first time. I resubbed to World of Warcraft ahead of the Battle for Azeroth expansion, and unsurprisingly,
    I tried all 100 recipes in the World of Warcraft cookbook and it made me love the game again

  • The demo begins in a forgotten temple in Ganesha, a city in the New Indian continent of the moon Soma. In Beyond Good and Evil 2’s world, the people are infertile, and can only populate the world by cloning the DNA of the first settlers. With the scientists thoroughly defeated, the devs head out of the temple and into the city of Ganesha proper. But I see little of what that grand scale means, and what detail I am shown still feels like it needs lots of time. And that’s all fine—Beyond Good and
    Beyond Good and Evil 2's demo feels so early it's hard to get excited about

  • A year after its unlikely E3 trailer debut, Beyond Good and Evil 2 showcased another full-on cinematic trailer and a sliver of in-game footage at this year’s Ubisoft conference. No release date was given on stage, but it appears the developer plans to launch a playable beta of BG&E 2 at the end of 2019. That’s according to game director Michel Ancel who said “we aim for a playable beta for the end of next year”, when asked about the elusive action adventure game’s release date on Instagram. Desp

  • Bo answered with The Witcher 3—and while I’ve finished Geralt’s third outing myself, Noelgal’s Enhanced Reshade mod is enough to merit a return. A number of worthy visual overhaul mods already exist for The Witcher 3, but I reckon this is the most impressive one yet. Here’s some moving pictures:And here are some stills:”The Witcher 3 Enhanced is designed to offer you the most immersive and real Witcher experience,” says creator Noelgal on the mod’s Nexus Mods page. “It works with all lighting mo

  • The FIFA World Cup 2018 kicked off last week, and, to mark England’s first game against Tunisia this evening, Football Manager is on sale on Steam. With that discount, Football Manager 18 costs just £12.92/$17, which is a great price for a game brimming with stats, figures, players and, for the first time this year, dynamic personal relationships. In FM 2018 success in the dressing room affects success on the pitch. Each criterion is interlinked: winning games boosts Match Cohesion, which boosts

  • When you think of World of Tanks, you probably think of a very serious tank combat game, full of very serious tanks. But to celebrate the imminent World Cup, the tanks are having a break from being serious. The tanks, for a limited time only, will engage in some frivolous recreational play in the form of Tank Football. It’s Rocket League with tanks, basically, and you might have played it when it debuted as a limited mode back in 2016. The thrill and competitiveness of Tank Football pulse-poundi

  • Unreal Tournament, as in the 1995 multiplayer first-person-shooter, has been demade for a new platform—the Atari VCS, aka the Atari 2600, a 41-year-old console. Fortunately you don’t need to have kept your Atari since 1977 to play it, as UT 2600 runs in an emulator or can be enjoyed right in your browser. This bleepy, chunky, 2D version of Unreal Tournament features capture-the-flag and deathmatch modes, can be played with a friend locally or online, and includes various classic pickups and weap

  • Eventually PUBG Corp.’s communications lead Ryan Rigney stepped in to explain things, talking through the creation of each of PUBG’s maps. That went so well that Korea decided to build a proper PUBG Corp. studio in Madison, Wisconsin for an in-house art team. Miramar came about as result of collaboration between the new, PUBG Madison team and the Korean team at HQ in Seoul. As our in-house art teams built Miramar, they began to rely less on store-bought assets, although they continued to use the

  • My favorite Skyrim mods are usually ones that alter the flow of the game, or add more character personalizing options. The Forgotten City, however, does not shy away from new characters. As for why I’m playing a mod from 2015, a standalone version of The Forgotten City was announced at E3. In spite of all that tension, The Forgotten City should be a place of peace. The Forgotten City feels like an argument in favor of constrained locations, for how great open-world games can be when they focus o

  • If you’ve never come across one of the Magic Eye books, then the picture above might just look like a random collection of dots. That’s what you get in OMDO, which is identical to DOOM except every frame is a random dot autostereogram (like the one above). Some people prefer going cross-eyed to see them in 3D, while some prefer going wall-eyed—OMDO caters for both by letting you switch between parallel convergence and cross-eyed convergence from the main menu. Again, if you’ve never tried to loo

  • In the midst of the E3 maelstrom you might well have missed developer Rebellion’s playthrough of Strange Brigade, its supernatural co-op shooter that’s due out in late August. But it’s worth watching: it’s got a decent mix of puzzles and hectic third-person combat alongside branching levels that encourage exploration. You and up to three friends will have a defined path to tread, and if you want, you can just play it like a straight co-op shooter, Rebellion says in the video. The levels will als

  • This 25-minute video, from YouTuber TDB Games, begins like a standard flythrough of a Cities: Skylines city build, albeit an impressive, sprawling one. And then the meteors start falling, and it turns into an epic disaster film. The introduction is arguably a tad too drawn out—the first ten minutes are basically made up of detailed shots of the city at work set to upbeat music. But I enjoyed them all the same, and they made me remember just how satisfying it can be to tinker with a Cities: Skyli

  • Maybe you remember a little Flash game published by Adult Swim website back in the day, something about slow-motion shootouts and a talking banana called My Friend Pedro? My Friend Pedro is back, and it looks even weirder this time. That kick’s new to this version of My Friend Pedro, and so are the ricochets. I haven’t ridden a skateboard since I was 17 but I’m pretty sure they don’t work like this. My Friend Pedro won’t be out until 2019 but it already looks impressive, like someone took the op

  • Fortnite’s arsenal of grenades is set to expand with the addition of a stink bomb that unleashes a cloud of gas that slowly damages anybody inside. The item began popping up on the game’s update feed earlier today, and is listed as “coming soon”. It could act as a more powerful version of the smoke grenade, laying down a thick cloud to block vision while also damaging anyone inside. That wouldn’t surprise me: Epic removed smoke grenades from the game because not enough people were using them, bu

  • This week’s update to Deep Rock Galactic, the co-op mining-themed horde shooter, was a beefy one: it added a new mission type, a new enemy and, most importantly, more beautiful beards. The new mission type is called Salvage Operation, and involves the clean-up of a failed mining expedition. You and your party has to salvage three robots, escort them to an escape pod, repair the escape pod, and then hold off waves of enemies as it awaits blast-off. The world is more dangerous, too, with new envir

But if you fancy more than one, you can build your own Humble Bundle out of them: the more you buy, the bigger the saving. Four games is 83% off, and if you buy five you get a whopping 85% discount. Some of the most recent 2K games, including XCOM 2, aren’t on the list, but it’s still not to be sniffed at. Here’s the one I made, which includes Civilisat
