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

Apex Legends producer says Iron Crown Collection Event ‘missed the mark’

The Apex Legends Iron Crown Collection Event, running until August 27, is "bigger, much more expensive, and more complicated" than we expected, and that hasn't gone over particularly well with some parts of the community. They'll be available for 1800 Apex Coins, the same cost as regular Legendary skins, and will also continue to drop from Iron Crown Apex Packs. (Image credit: Electronic Arts)McCoy said that the Iron Crown Collection Event has a different structure from the season 1 Legendary Hu

Bethesda's latest Fallout 76 blog is a deep dive into Vault 94, the location of its first four-player raid. Vault 94 was filled with pacifist gardeners who were given the job of restoring the Wasteland after the bombs and armed primarily with packets of seeds. There will be three different missions inside Vault 94, each of which will be active for a week before cycling on to the next. Said loot will involve plans for new power armor, and a unique resource called Vault 94 steel for crafting them.

Hyper Light Drifter and Mutant Year Zero are free on the Epic Games Store

The Epic Games Store is doing its last double freebie this week, at least for now, giving everyone a copy of Hyper Light Drifter, the tricky pixel RPG, and the turn-based tactics game, Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden. I've only ever admired Hyper Light Drifter from a distance, because it looks like the sort of thing where my lack of dexterity will only ensure a plenitude of deaths and a lot of frustration. Mutant Year Zero is more my speed. It only appeared last December, so getting it for free n

System Shock 2 Enhanced Edition devs are focused on multiplayer and mods

Nightdive Studios announced last week that it's working on an enhanced version of System Shock 2, which came as a shock to me because I thought it had been announced months ago. "Our priority with the Enhanced Edition is to be able to deliver an updated co-op multiplayer component. "Our other priority is to ensure that all existing mods and fan missions are compatible with the Enhanced Edition, but much of that will rely on the cooperation of the mod community. System Shock 2 multiplayer is a pa

Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts trailer reveals a November release date

Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 suffered from some rather serious technical problems when it came out in 2017, which developer CI Games attributed in part to the game being "too ambitious" for its relatively small team. To address that, it said the next release in the series, Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts, would ditch Ghost Warrior 3's open-world design in favor of "tailor-made contract missions that offer a clear main objective." A year to the day later, CI has dropped a new trailer showcasing Black G
