Sniper Elite V2 Remastered has a firm May release date

Sniper Elite is a series about shooting nazis in the nether regions. You can aim for other body parts if you like, but given the slow-mo kill cam, the nether regions make a whole lot of sense. I hold the series close to my heart: nether region shooting aside, they're also really fun for fans of measured, tactical, stealthy gunplay. So I'm glad the Sniper Elite V2 Remaster is coming sooner than I thought. That date is May 14.

Elite: Dangerous update will make the game easier for new players, add beginners area

Now, more than four years after launch, the team at Frontier Developments is hoping to make it a bit easier for new players. An update scheduled for later this month will create a zone specifically for beginners and automate some of the game’s most complex flight mechanics. According to community manager Will Flanagan, these beginners only areas will be off limits to more advanced players. In Elite, players are often tasked with maneuvering out of the “mail slot” as its called of massive orbitin

Sniper Elite brings two reheats this year, and a full sequel later

Well, this is great news for Sniper Elite fans, and I speak as one: The cult-hit stealth/shooter/period piece is not only getting a Sniper Elite 5, to tide its many friends over until then there are three other projects in the works. That would be a remaster of 2012’s Sniper Elite V2, the launch of 2014’s Sniper Elite 3 on Nintendo Switch (as Sniper Elite 3: Ultimate Edition), and a virtual reality project. “It’s still very early in development,” he said, “but the team here are busy working away

Sniper Elite 5, Sniper Elite VR and Sniper Elite V2 Remastered announced

Rebellion dropped a lot of Sniper Elite news in its 2019 development update today. Not only did it confirm that Sniper Elite 5 is in development, it announced a remastered version of Sniper Elite V2 and a standalone Sniper Elite for VR devices. Sniper Elite V2 Remastered will feature enhanced graphics, as well as 4K and HDR support. Phil reviewed Sniper Elite V2 way back in 2012, and while he was a fan of the sniping, he didn't think the level design was up to snuff. Rebellion's not ready to say

Walmart is selling an RTX 2060-equipped gaming PC bundled with Battlefield V or Anthem for $899.99

Building PCs is a hassle, and because some jobs are best left to the professionals, Walmart has a deal on the Skytech Archangel Elite that'll get the blood pumping. For $899.99, not only do you get the PC itself, but it's being bundled with a copy of either Battlefield 5 or Anthem, one very good game and another we called "deeply flawed and frequently frustrating" in our review. Skytech Archangel Elite | $899.99 ($199 off)For less than a thousand dollars, a pre-built system with an RTX 2060 and

The Elite Dangerous pilot stranded since last year has finally been rescued

Image via Commander DeluvianCommander Deluvian, the Elite Dangerous pilot who has spent the last three months stranded in space, has finally been rescued. The heroic Fuel Rats reached him on the weekend, completing a journey that started last month, at least for them. A heck of a lot of preparation went into saving the daredevil pilot, with multiple Fuel Rats getting involved and helping at different stages. With fuel in his tank once more, Deluvian was able to jump back home, followed by the Fu

An Elite Dangerous pilot has been stuck in space for three months

An Elite Dangerous pilot, Commander Deluvian Reyes Cruz, has been stranded in space for three months. It's being mounted by the Fuel Rats, which isn't too surprising. The Fuel Rats must be a bit sick of daredevil explorers. And when players miscalculate their fuel consumption, it's the Fuel Rats that have to make journeys that take hundreds of hours—600 in this case—to save them. The Fuel Rats rescue has been long and probably incredibly dull.

Elite’s Distant Worlds 2 expedition: A dramatic rescue in the Empyrean Straits

Players are just over one month into Elite: Dangerous’ Distant Worlds 2 expedition, an 18-week test of endurance ferrying more than 13,000 players to the far side of the Milky Way Galaxy. There’s no better example than the dramatic rescue of Commander Proigr3 that took place over the weekend. Once on the outside, they discovered that they only had minutes of emergency oxygen left on hand. At one moment, Proigr3 had less than two minutes of emergency oxygen left. The Distant Worlds 2 fleet is rig
