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

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 will have no Premium Pass, all maps will be free

Battlefield 5 will not have a Premium Pass. Maps, modes, or anything that might divide players will be free, including events that will be run as part of BF5's new months-long Tides of War chapters. What exactly will be for sale after Battlefield 5 releases hasn't been announced in detail, but EA has assured us that anything you can buy, you can earn by playing, and that players won't be able to buy an "unfair gameplay advantage"—so we're talking about cosmetic items only, presumably. It's proba

Rather than a conventional singleplayer campaign, Battlefield 5 will also include War Stories, like Battlefield 1.

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
