  • 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

  • About how I felt after one game of Split the Room. Split the Room, part of The Jackbox Party Pack 5, isn’t fun in the way the series’ party games usually are. Split the Room begins like many Jackbox games do. We’re looking at Black Mirror: The Party Game Trivia Question. We’re looking at Black Mirror: The Party Game Trivia Question.

  • EA has announced the games coming to its Origin Access subscription service this month—the two standouts are wacky city builder Tropico 5 and head-scratching puzzle game Opus Magnum. As Alex wrote in his review, Opus Magnum is one of the most satisfying puzzle games ever made, and you’re given plenty of freedom to solve its alchemical, machine-based puzzles the way you want. As a reminder, EA’s basic Origin Access costs $5/£4 per month or $30/£20 per year, and gives you access to free games and

  • Whether you like it or not, the once-cancelled “uncensored” version of survival horror game Agony is officially releasing this month. Following its mysterious appearance on Steam last week, Madmind Studio has confirmed Agony Rated will release October 31. Indeed, Agony Unrated itself was announced and then cancelled due to “legal issues” as well, but on its Kickstarter page, Madmind Studio has gone into a bit of detail about what this means. To release Agony Unrated, we had to choose an alternat

  • As we approach the Black Friday season, when tons of gaming monitors will be available at a discount, one of the biggest questions you’ll have to address is: “Should I buy a G-Sync or FreeSync display?” Differences between G-Sync and FreeSyncBoth G-Sync and FreeSync effectively do the same key thing: remove stutters and screen tearing in games. In addition to being cheaper than G-Sync equivalents, FreeSync displays also offer more connectivity options including older inputs like DVI and VGA. You

  • Far Cry 2’s central genius is that it’s an open world that doesn’t exist to glorify you, the player. There are no good guys in Far Cry 2, and no glorious crusade to save the war-torn country from some handy moustache-twirling dictator. Another legacy of Far Cry 2: one of the all-time great game trailers, thanks to perfect pairing with Massive Attack’s Angel. Far Cry 2 inspired an industry to widen its perspective and explore the power that open worlds truly offered. It may have spawned several o

  • Mech strategy game Battletech’s first expansion, Flashpoints, will be out on November 27, and it’ll be followed by another expansion next summer and a third that does not yet have a release window, publisher Paradox has announced. The expansion adds a new mission type, Target Acquisition, where you race to control three territories across the map, as well as three new mechs and a tropical biome. The next expansion, called Urban Warfare, is due in the summer of next year, and you’ll “fight throug

  • Andy called Shadow of the Tomb Raider “one of Lara Croft’s best modern adventures” in his review last month and, up until this week, fans seemed to generally agree, giving it mostly positive reviews on Steam. But then it was review bombed, with most disgruntled fans citing a 34% week-long sale, which ends tomorrow, as the reason for criticism. Most don’t seem concerned about whether the game is any good or not, and many don’t even comment on it. Another negative review reads: “Game is good btw..

  • It’s late October, which means a slew of Halloween events are on their way to your favourite games, and Fortnite is no exception. Epic has already added some spooky skins—including the pumpkin-headed Jack Gourdon (above)—and recreated trick-or-treating by lettings players ring doorbells. On Friday, it began teasing its official Halloween event, Fortnitemares, with an image of what looks like a new skin, a cube in chains, and some cryptic rhymes that could be hinting at an event-specific game mod

  • The Early Access launch of modern multiplayer shooter World War 3 has been marred by technical problems, with many players unable to connect to game servers, leaving them staring at a loading screen. Developer The Farm 51 nearly postponed the Early Access launch at the last minute on Friday because of “technical difficulties”. They still have a way to go, however, and said they “understand the frustration and the anger” from fans. World War 3 aims for the more realistic end of the shooter spectr

  • Perennial Fallout baddies The Enclave—who featured heavily in both Fallout 2 and 3—will return as one of the factions in Fallout 76, Bethesda has confirmed. The developer tweeted the below image, giving some backstory for the faction and revealing that they have a “secret bunker” hidden somewhere in Appalachia, where the game is set. Just before the bombs fell, US leadership re-located to a remote Oil Rig off the coast of San Francisco. Over the past few days, Bethesda has also revealed the Resp

  • Developer Splash Damage will no longer update its team-based shooter Dirty Bomb, it has announced. “The bottom line is that we can’t financially justify continuing to work on the game we love,” it said in a post on the game’s official website, adding that it was “not able to make Dirty Bomb the success that we hoped it could be”. The shooter entered open beta way back in 2015, but its 1.0 version only came out in August. It was, by all accounts, a fun, fast-paced game: when Evan played the beta

  • Spellbreak is an upcoming battle royale game—but before you dismiss it as just another cash-in on the genre, check out the trailer above. For instance, the poison gauntlet’s primary fire is a focused spray, while secondary is a big poison bomb. I like how flashy the spell effects are, and it creates some pretty hectic moments on the battlefield. Each class runs a passive ability and three scrolls that they can level up during a match to increase their power. It’s currently in pre-alpha, and you

  • He simply wants to give his son the tools to live his own life, one Fortnite coaching session at a time. For the parents involved, it’s no different than investing in your child’s soccer uniform or paying for a basketball summer camp.

  • This weekend, we ask the PC Gamer writers and you the following: what game did you hate at first, but eventually love? Tom Senior: Hollow KnightI didn’t hate Hollow Knight, but I certainly found it dull for the first four hours or so. I’d have played it closer to release, only The Witcher 3’s online advocates made it a hard game to like. Andy Kelly: Mad MaxI bounced hard off Mad Max when it was first released, thinking it was just a pretty generic open world game. I don’t know exactly what click

  • Chucklefish’s turn-based strategy game Wargroove—described by Samuel as a “fiercely competitive Advance Wars successor” after his hands-on last year—will no longer be out this year as planned, and will instead be released in early 2019, the developer has announced. The delay will “allow us to provide players with a really robust package when the big day comes”, Chucklefish said in a blog post. It’s aiming for more than 30 two-player PVP maps, more than 10 three-player maps and at least six four-

  • After five and a half years of development, Ludeon Studios has released the 1.0 version of its colony management game Rimworld. If you’ve never played before, then Rimworld tasks you with building a new colony in the far future, starting with the three survivors of a starship crash. Ludeon describes it as a “story generator”, and where you land on the planet—desert, jungles, forests, snowy tundra—will have a huge impact on your journey. The Steam user reviews are overwhelmingly positive, and Ste

  • You can see one at the top of this Reddit thread and one below, which usert tyst_ shared in the same thread. Valve has given beta keys to fans that attended PAX West and Dota 2’s The International 2018, as well as some people that follow the game’s social media accounts. It’s currently in closed beta, with access restricted to Dota scenesters and pros from other CCGs. Update: I initially wrote that next month’s beta would be an open beta, which isn’t correct: members of the public will be able t
