Metro Exodus is bigger than 2033 and Last Light combined

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

Tim Schafer: ‘I don’t think I’ve made my best game yet’

Image source: BAFTATim Schafer has made some pretty great games over the years, like Day of the Tentacle, Full Throttle, Grim Fandango, and Psychonauts. He was also recently awarded a BAFTA Fellowship, a lifetime achievement award and "the highest accolade BAFTA can bestow up an individual." "This sort of award feels like something you get when you're done, but I still feel like I'm working towards figuring out how to make games. "I don't think I've made my best game yet, and I feel like that's

The Crusader Kings board game brings the medieval soap opera to your tabletop

Crusader Kings, everyone’s favorite medieval dating, plague, and war simulator, is coming to the tabletop. Like the video game, much of Crusader Kings was about diplomacy, bartering, and alliances. It’s very much the kind of story engine that fans of Crusader Kings on PC will enjoy. That said, it’s very much the kind of story engine that fans of Crusader Kings on PC will enjoy. In just a handful of plays of the game I’d seen the kinds of stories that you play dozens of hours of the PC game for.

Battlefield 5 learns from Fortnite and Destiny, aiming to be the only shooter you’ll need this year

Senior Producer, and Battlefield stalwart, Lars Gustavsson makes a standard boast at the start of my extensive, behind the scenes look at Battlefield 5. Oh, and you’d better keep a Medic handy, because health won’t regenerate to 100% either - you’ll need to heal for that. But you’ll be missing out on much of Battlefield 5’s best if you do go solo. There is a lot to unlock and use in Battlefield 5 and it’s done in a number of ways. So, you’ll perhaps need to get 50 revives on a certain map, then

Prime Mover is a new puzzle game about building circuit boards

After two years of work, the small team at Norwegian developer 4Bit Games recently released Prime Mover, an open-ended puzzle game about building circuit boards that fulfill "a wide variety of logic and computer science-inspired problems." Admittedly, my experience as a computer scientist amounts to tinkering with redstone in Minecraft, but nearest I can tell Prime Mover's puzzles are about inputs, outputs and the rules that connect them. Rather than a single solution, each level has a goal, and

Death Stranding fans make a moss connection and helps confirm the game’s setting

You may have seen that Hideo Kojima recently tweeted a picture of some in-game moss from Death Stranding , teasing its upcoming appearance as a much-anticipated E3 2018 game . I'd lichen it to a revelation if this wasn't the culmination of a whole bunch of compelling data points that indicate Iceland will be a major location in Death Stranding. Remember that first trailer for the game with naked Norman Reedus on a craggy, black sand beach? All this isn't to say that Death Stranding will take pla

Battlefield V gets first reveal trailer; No more paid DLC/Premium Passes

In 2016, we left the modern era of war to go back to one of the deadliest wars of all-time, World War I. Now in 2018 with Battlefield V, we’ll be entering one of the most unforgiving eras in history. On October 19th, EA and DICE will be releasing Battlefield V, a new take on World War II. We’ve had World War II Battlefield and Call of Duty games but it’s nothing like this. You can get a taste of what Battlefield V has to offer in the new reveal trailer which appears to be in-engine, at the very

Rage 2 needs to lose Rage 1’s miserly design to be great

Sometimes the wingstick swoops back into your inventory, but sometimes it smashes and clatters to the floor in bits. In Rage you need to engage with a dull crafting system or shops to keep your cool gadgets primed. Now there's a game that's happy to give the player big toys with few constraints. The more games move towards heavily padded open world settings, the more I appreciate a focused game about guns vs. mutants and monsters. Give me great weapons, plenty of ammo, and let me loose on the wa
