Yakuza producer hints at rest of series coming to PC

Sega this week announced western releases for another three Yakuza games, another three stories of kind-hearted mobsters helping everyone offering fatherly advice to children and adults alike and smashing thugs with bicycles. Yakuza 3, 4, 5 are the latest coming our way and... well, Sega haven't actually confirmed PC releases yet. Seeing as the series grew on PlayStation, it's starting there. But asked this week…

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds brings dynamic weather to new Erangel

Ever-changing weather has drifted over the lovely revamped version of Erangel in Playerunknown's Battlegrounds, with all manner of precipitation adding an extra touch of drama to the stag & hen weekends. The previous version of Erangel had dynamic weather and I had half-worried it might not carry over to the new but naw, we're good. I still miss Erangel's old full-time fog variant, even if…

Destiny 2 players can now link Battle.net and Steam accounts, and should

Guardians playing Destiny 2 on PC can now link their Battle.net account to their Steam account in preparation for the big move in October. Now that Bungie are self-publishing their MMOFPS, taking over from Activision, it's leaving the Battle.net store and client and coming to Steam. We will all need to switch, as it won't be playable on Battle.net anymore. Best do that now, eh?…

Final Fantasy VIII Remastered arrives in September

For all the decades of ha-ha-hilarious jokes about a final Final Fantasy as the numbers kept climbing higher, we hadn't predicted that Square Enix would keep it going from the other end too with remakes and remasters aplenty. Up next is Final Fantasy VIII Remastered, a fancied-up version of the game which in 1999 was definitely the last in the RPG series for real ho…

Remnant: From The Ashes out now from Darksiders devs

Forever revelling in the end of human civilisation, Darksiders III developers Gunfire Games today launched Remnant: From The Ashes. Set in a(nother) world where fantasy gubbins has smashed into our Earth with apocalyptic consequences, it's a third-person shoot-o-RPG of the sort that makes many people squint and halfheartedly suggest Dark Souls as a distant point of comparison even though they know explaining the differences will…

Dead By Daylight crosses over with Stranger Things next month

Continuing to break down the walls separating horror series and build a crossover world of murder grander than Hollywood ever managed, Dead By Daylight will soon draft the kooky kids of Stranger Things. The next expansion for the 1v4 multiplayer horrorshow will introduce Nancy Wheeler and Steve Harrington as aspiring survivors, and the Demigorgon as a new baddie out to eat their faces. The nitty-gritty…

Anno 1800 has a demo, but only for one week

Ubisoft have launched a week-long demo for Anno 1800, the latest in their city 'n' empire-building game. You've got until Monday to play a Victorian coloniser, wearing silly hats and ruthlessly exploiting resources and people for capital gain. And in the game. It is weird for a demo to be limited in both quantity and time, given how many week-long full-game trials we see these…

Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord rides into early access in March

One Gamescom tradition is that a lucky few get to play a new Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord preview build, then developers TaleWorlds lock up their medieval warfare sandbox fight-o-RPG for another year with nary a word of when the rest of us might get to play it. Well, Gamescom is here again, we have another appointment to play a preview build there, and... wait!…

Little Nightmares 2 explores new horrors next year

The doughy and wonderfully unpleasant horrors of Little Nightmares will return next year in a sequel, Bandai Namco announced today. Little Nightmares II will send us out into the wider world as another spooky wee kid, this time a lad with a paper bag on our head, and our yellow-coated pal from the first game is coming along. She'll be an AI-controlled friend keeping us…

Comanche reborn as a multiplayer game with drones, somehow?

In their ongoing mission to capitalise on memories of PC gaming 1992-2006, THQ Nordic have announced a new Comanche game. The publishers say this is "based on" Novalogic's Comanche sim series from the 90s, though the only similarity seems to be having helicopters. THQ Nordic say this here new Comanche is a "modern, team-based online multiplayer helicopter shooter" where players will also fly wee drones…

Endless Space devs announce Humankind, a historical 4X

Following the sci-fi 4X strategy of Endless Space and fantasy 4X of Endless Legend, the next strategy game from Amplitude Studios has an even stranger setting: human history. They've just announced Humankind, a 4X strategy game which I will crudely describe as "sounding like Amplitude's take on Civilization." By which I mean it's a turn-based 4X strategy game where galleons can be sailing around at…

Kerbal Space Program 2 is coming with official multiplayer

A sequel is coming for silly-yet-serious space build-o-exploration sim Kerbal Space Program. Blasting off next year, Kerbal Space Program 2 will add fancy and far-flung features including interstellar travel, space colonies, and official multiplayer support. This announcement seemed sudden to me until I remembered that the first game officially left early access in 2015. Four years ago! Goodness me. Come watch the sequel's announcement trailer…

Come watch Gamescom’s Opening Night Live stream here

Tomorrow sees the start of Gamescom 2019, the German public games show that's usually a little more low-key and less marketing-y than E3. We've sent some of the gang out there (including two of our most precious resource, Alices) to play and chat and report back, but a wee taster is coming tonight. Gamescom's organisers have drafted Geoff Keighley (the fella behind the ghastly Game…

Spacebase Startopia resurrects the silly space station sim in 2020

Silly space station management sim Startopia will return next year with Spacebase Startopia, publishers Kalypso announced today. They call it "an all-new take on the 2001 cult classic" and hey, it was a cult classic. Our former Alec (RPS in peace) returned in 2013 to declare ye olde Startopia "exudes at least some of the timeless quality to be found in relative contemporaries such as…

Apex Legends making Iron Crown event loot system less grubby after breaking promise

Respawn Entertainment have said that Apex Legends event loot boxes "broke [their] promise" of trying to "do monetisation in a way that felt fair." The new Iron Crown event whammed a load of new cosmetic doodads into loot boxes, and the most elusive was only available if you got all the others first. Our boy Brendan noted that it "feels grubby," and it does. Now…

Rainbow Six Siege gets a chuffing grappling hook gun in Operation Ember Rise

This gadget, a featured mandated by the video game certification board, will let Amaru whoosh up buildings and through windows. Proper video game stuff. She'll be joined in Operation Ember Rise…

ACE Team’s The Eternal Cylinder looks so wonderfully strange

On a distant alien planet, a vast cylinder is rolling across the surface and crushing everything in its path. Were this Earth, we'd welcome our redeemer. But in The Eternal Cylinder, we'll play a wee critter fleeing the roller, gobbling up plants and beasties to gain abilities aiding our escape. Also, it's so gloriously strange-looking, just as I'd expect from ACE Team, the Chilean studio…
