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

Assassin’s Creed is headed to WW2 – at least in comic book form

While the Walmart Canada E3 leak from a couple weeks ago has us preparing for a potential Assassin's Creed announcement at E3 2018, games adaptation specialists Titan Comics have slyly announced its own entry in the massive franchise.

Conspiracies takes place during WW2, a new setting for the series (if you don't count those weird glitchy moments in Assassin's Creed Unity, and frankly I don't blame y

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

Monster Hunter-like Dauntless goes into open beta on May 24, but you can watch the intro right now

Phoenix Labs' game Dauntless will enter open beta on Thursday, May 24, allowing anyone and everyone with a moderately powerful PC to enter a world inhabited by monsters. Okay yes, I'm joking around, but if you haven't seen or heard of Dauntless yet, the Monster Hunter comparison is pretty fair. Their worlds are distinct, the art styles couldn't be further apart, and Dauntless is a free-to-play game whereas games like Monster Hunter World carry a premium pricetag. While you can summon in friends

A look at World of Warcraft’s $500 mount

World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth is getting a new vendor mount. The Reigns of the Mighty Caravan Brutosaur is a giant brontosaurus with a portable auction house on its back — a first for World of Warcraft. But this new mount will cost players a cool five million gold, which has a real-world value of $475. But five million gold is quite a price to pay, even for the kings of the World of Warcraft economy. For example, the Reigns of the Grand Expedition Yak vendor mount — which comes with a ve
