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 Walking Simulator a Month Club pushes the boundaries of a sometimes narrow genre

I had a chance to speak with Sherlock about what makes a videogame a videogame, how he creates his own work, and what is next for his Walking Simulator a Month Club. Connor Sherlock: I started making games while Dear Esther and Proteus were coming out, and the term walking simulator was being reclaimed as a genre title, much to the chagrin of the aforementioned creators. What led to making games that focus on landscape to the exclusion of everything else? How did you end up making a new walking

Intel’s first graphics card prototype shows off 1.5 billion transistors

Ever since Intel poached AMD’s Radeon Tech Group Leader Raja Koduri, we suspected that it would be getting into the discrete graphics world. At the IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference, Intel unveiled a prototype GPU based on a 14nm process. According to PC Watch, the prototype GPU contains 1.542 billion transistors split between two chips; one being the actual graphics processor unit and the other a field programmable gate array (FPGA). The inclusion of an FGPA suggests that this

Conan Exiles’ director talks Early Access development, the future of the survival genre and dong sliders

Conan Exiles is a different style of game entirely, but has promoting a pre-release game been difficult against PUBG's runaway success? Given how popular the battle royale genre has become, do you think Conan Exiles will ever apply a similar mode? Talk me through the last 12 months of Conan Exiles in Early Access—what's been the most enjoyable elements, the most exciting, the most challenging? Yeah, when we started with Conan Exiles, the migrant crisis was dominating all of the news headlines. J

The new Discovery mode turns Assassin’s Creed Origins into an interactive history lesson

A hefty 5gb patch just dropped for Assassin’s Creed Origins, bringing with it an intriguing new mode called Discovery that turns the game into an interactive history lesson. Discovery is completely separate from the main game, dropping you into an Egypt where all the fast travel points are unlocked and nothing can kill you. It’s a mode I wish more games had, letting you experience the world without the usual open-world distractions of quests, enemies, and NPCs. This, plus an abundance of fast tr

Samsung’s new 30TB SSD is the largest in the world

Just two years after it launched its 15.36TB SAS SSD drive – which then boasted the most memory packed into a 2.5 inch drive – the company has taken its own crown with a brand new 30.72 TB model. According to Samsung, the drive – catchily named PM1643 – is built from 32 sticks of 1TB NAND flash packages, all containing 16 layers of 512GB 3D Vertical NAND chips. This gives the drive two times the capacity and speed of its predecessor, but allows it to retain its unassuming 2.5-inch frame. If you

Biomutant’s character creator and crazy exploration gear detailed

Biomutant is the open world RPG to watch this year: a mutant and mech-focused game with a gorgeous post-apocalyptic landscape to explore, and not a boring human character in sight. Instead you'll be playing as a cute, Rocket Raccoon-style mutant critter, who you'll be able to customise to your liking. Experiment 101's Stefan Ljungqvist enlightened us on this aspect at the PC Gamer Weekender, going into detail on Biomutant's character creation tools. There are also mechs, a sort of jetpack to fin

Metal Gear Survive’s Yuji Korekado talks about “taking what players enjoyed” and creating a new MGS experience

To say that fans were confused by the announcement of a new Metal Gear game, Metal Gear Survive, taking place in an alternative universe and featuring zombie-like creatures is something of an understatement. At the time, fans of the series and gamers in general seemed to take Metal Gear Survive to be a continuation of the Metal Gear series saga, so I regret that we caused that confusion. What do you think players will be most surprised by when they get their hands on Metal Gear Survive? A core c

World of Warcraft: Watch Player Solo End-Game Raid Boss Xavius

We see Destiny players solo raid bosses all the time, but that feat is a little more rare in an MMO like World of Warcraft. Going back and solo’ing old raid bosses from prior expansions is a common undertaking, but solo’ing a raid boss from the current era of content is a lot more impressive. That’s what a World of Warcraft player recently did when they entered the Emerald Nightmare alone and took on Xavius without any support. For those who aren’t familiar with the Legion raid content, Xavius i
