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

This indie game is all about saving indie devs (from aliens)

The Indie Game Legend was originally created in 2011 and released for free on the TIGSource forums. And thus was born The Indie Game Legend 3D, an NES-style first-person action-adventure in which you, the intrepid hero, must rescue five indie game developers from the clutches of a hostile alien race, that's now available in Early Access on Steam. "Inspired by the NES cult hit The Guardian Legend and other classic titles, The Indie Game Legend 3D provides a fresh lens to what a classic 8-bit game

Epic Store exclusives are worth the pressure they put on Steam

Days after announcing its new store, Epic took a direct swing at Valve by luring high-profile independent games such as Satisfactory, Hades, and Super Meat Boy Forever away from Steam. If Epic doesn't take potential revenue away from Steam, it isn't a real threat. Epic's store currently lacks basic features such as cloud saves, and it's important to note that Steam allows developers to generate keys and sell them off Steam, something Vertigo Gaming owner David Galindo calls out in his criticism

Thomas the Tank Engine is finally where he should be: Monster Hunter: World

Could this week be better for Monster Hunter: World news? The most infamous Skyrim dragon has been modded into Monster Hunter: World. That's right: Thomas the Tank Engine is here. The mod, Thomas the Eater of Elder Dragons, replaces MHW's big bad elder dragon Nergigante with the favorite train of children everywhere. At this point, we're one Macho Man Randy Savage mod away from never having a good reason to play Skyrim instead of Monster Hunter ever again.

Watch hooded men with chainsaws get blown into goo in the Dusk launch trailer

After almost a year in Early Access, the high-speed-violence retro-FPS Dusk is now available in full release on Steam. The trailer is Dusk in a nutshell: Loud, fast, and very giblet-y. 16-player deathmatch is also available in the multiplayer Duskworld mode, if that's your thing. I didn't write our upcoming review (and yes, we've got one on the way) but I have been playing Dusk quite a bit, and I really like it. Dusk is available now on Steam, on sale for $16.66 (because that's the kind of game

Bethesda fixed a Fallout 76 event glitch, but players want it un-fixed

As I mentioned in today's Fallout 76 patch news, a glitch for the public event called Feed The People was fixed by Bethesda this week. Prior to today, upon completing the event, every player on the server was rewarded with a can of stew. We learned today this was actually a bug: only players participating in the quest should have received the stew-based reward, not the entire server. Bethesda fixed that glitch with today's patch. And Fallout 76 players want it un-fixed.

Ghost Recon Wildlands crosses over with Future Soldier for Special Operation 3
