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

Co-op survival game Generation Zero gets a gameplay trailer

Avalanche studios has released a meaty video showing off the systems behind its new cooperative survival game Generation Zero. Generation Zero was announced at this year’s E3. Beyond that basic outline, however, little else about the game was discussed. It seems rather tacked on, and aside from some of the character’s clothing, there’s little about the video that lends Generation Zero that specific sense of time. Generation Zero is due out net year, so hopefully it won’t be long before that happ

ARM declares war on Intel in the battle for laptop processors

ARM has come out with some fighting talk when it comes to how its processors stack up against Intel’s in the world of laptop CPUs. In a processor roadmap shared in a press release on the topic of ‘accelerating laptop performance’, ARM said it’s expecting to deliver performance improvements of 15% year-on-year going through to 2020. However, as Engadget (which spotted this) points out, ARM is obviously fudging things slightly here by not offering a comparison with Intel’s latest 8th-gen family of

F1 2018 review: a wonderful recreation of what we see on TV every weekend

Last year's F1 2017 was arguably the best F1 game Codemasters had ever made, and a strong contender for best F1 console game of all time. Spoiler alert: F1 2018 is a racing game. Thankfully, F1 2018 delivers on that front with a driving experience that balances hardcore simulation with pick-up-and-play accessibility. It all contributes to perhaps the most realistic-looking F1 game we've ever seen - some of the preview screens genuinely looked like stills from TV broadcasts. By contrast, F1 2018

‘Garbage town builder’ Flotsam mixes survival and city building in new trailer

Flotsam is part city sim and part survival game. It's set in a never-ending ocean, so you have to build your town from driftwood, flotsam and whatever garbage floats by in the waves. Hence the nickname, "The Happy-Go-Lucky Garbage Town Builder." You also need to support and oversee the citizens of your garbage town, your "drifters," by providing food and water and putting them to work. They can collect rainwater, hunt for fish, or scoop up more building materials caught in the tide.

Roguelike FPS Polygod leaves Early Access tomorrow

Polygod is a randomly-generated roguelike FPS about a Faceless One, a legendary assassin with one arm who must prove himself to the seven deities by fighting through their arenas and defeating their Holy Champions in order to ascend to godhood.

Intel teases its own discrete GPU ahead of Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 2080 launch

Intel set up a new Twitter account for its graphics division and its introductory tweet teases a discrete GPU that's scheduled to arrive in 2020. It's probably not a coincidence that Intel timed its tweet just days ahead of Nvidia's upcoming GeForce RTX launch, which is expected to take place on Monday, August 20, a day ahead of Gamescom 2018. Intel's current HD Graphics 630 solution by contrast checks in at 23 EUs (Execution Units), each with 8 shader cores, for a total of 184 cores. That's a h
