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

Telltale’s Batman is apparently getting DLC and a rerelease

As Gematsu reports, a press release announcing a "noir-style visual makeover and graphical upgrade" for Batman: The Telltale Series alongside a rerelease called the Shadows Edition was quietly posted on the website of Athlon Games and then removed. Presumably a gun was jumped on an announcement that one of the rights-holders involved wasn't ready for just yet. The holding company who bought the Telltale Games name and some of their back catalogue seem focused right now on promoting The Wolf Amon

Indie FPS Receiver is getting a sequel

Remember Receiver, the indie shooter from 2013 that models every step of reloading your gun with a separate keypress for each action? It's getting a sequel, Receiver 2, which will be out early next year. Receiver 2 will still be a game about shooting drones while hunting for cassettes in procedurally generated urban locations, but the sequel will have both more guns and more detail in those guns, promising to simulate all of their moving parts. What it won't have is online multiplayer or VR supp

There are “seven or eight” Dungeons & Dragons videogames in the works

Dungeons & Dragons may be enjoying a cultural relevance it hasn't seen since the 1980s, but while its fifth edition has flourished it hasn't been well represented in videogames. The announcements of new Baldur's Gate and Dark Alliance games suggest a change, and that's backed up by Wizards of the Coast. In an interview with Gamesindustry.biz, Wizards of the Coast president Chris Cocks explained that this is only the beginning and there are "seven or eight" videogames based on D&D coming out in t

Free Shipping Day: How to take advantage of discounts this weekend

With the explosion of online shopping came the advent of Free Shipping Day, the most absurd non-holiday of the year. Lastly, all of these retailers do Free Shipping Day a little differently—you might need to apply a coupon code at checkout, or maybe free ground shipping is pre-waived. The first the free shipping on all laptops and selected desktop PCs in the US, and the second is free two-day shipping on all Instant Ship desktops—with an extra $300 off. Instead of offering free shipping during a

11 thoughts on Rainbow Six Siege’s buggy, evolutionary Year 4

For almost all of that time, Siege's precise gunplay and meaningful seasonal updates have kept my attention. Though, Siege has a lurking problem that often spoils the fun of Pick & Ban: everyone bans the same operators. Year 4's operators are some of my favorites in yearsIt's been a strong year for new Siege operators. Wamai's Mag-NET trap is a smart alternative to Jager's ADS that encourages you to think deliberately about the geometry and angles of Siege's maps to turn attacker's grenades agai
