Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer now unlikely to come before 2022

Following last night's announcement that Cyberpunk 2077 is delayed from April into September, CD Projekt gave a wee update on when we should expect its mysterious multiplayer aspect: probably not until 2022, at earliest. They'd never said when to expect the project (which is officially codenamed Cyberpunk Multiplayer) but we do now know when not to expect it. The Witcher devs also expanded on why…

GamesIndustry.biz’s Academy site has all sorts of serious game-making advice

People always ask me, "Alice0, how do I get a job in the video games industry?" I tell them: find a way to travel back two decades then make a good mod for Quake or Half-Life. People always tell me, "Alice0, there's no need to be a dick about it." Now, thankfully, I can simply point people to The GamesIndustry.biz Academy, a new subsite launched…

Total War: Three Kingdom’s Mandate Of Heaven brings a new starting time

Creative Assembly roll back the clock of Total War: Three Kingdoms in the new expansion released today, letting players start eight years earlier in a wee prequel campaign then keep that same save on rolling through regular history. Mandate Of Heaven is its name, and getting stuck into the Yellow Turban Rebellion is its game. Whether you buy it or not, more characters, units, and…

Destiny 2 has a new mystery deep in the Corridors of Time

In the middle of a relatively straightforward season of straightforward content, Destiny 2 has quietly snuck in a big puzzle that has sent players exploring the Corridors of Time. We last went through there to rescue our old pal Saint-14 from his fated death, and now I'm starting to wonder if changing history was the best idea. (Of course it was: he's a great mate.)…

Epic Games Store will continue free game giveaways all 2020

Epic confirmed today that they plan to keep on giving away a full game for free every week on the Epic Games Store throughout 2020. Previously they'd only confirmed freebies through to the end of 2019, a year they ended with a blowout of daily freebies, though they did quietly kept going when this year started. Epic say over 200 million free games have been…

Nier soundtracks are now streaming on Spotify and Apple

Nothing says 'Monday morning' quite like punching yourself directly in the heart with a fist formed from five minutes of music then crumpling on the floor, a solitary tear rolling down your cheek. Thanks, Square Enix, for enabling this Monday morning moment by adding Nier soundtracks to Spotify. As part of the tenth birthday celebrations for the series, soundtracks for Nier: Automata as well as…

Destiny 2 will fix Wish-Ender’s damage bug next week, and it’s about time

One of Destiny 2's oft-forgotten Exotic weapons, the Wish-Ender bow, has been unusually popular this entire season thanks to a bug. Since the Season Of Dawn started in December, Wish-Ender has been dealing almost triple its intended damage, making it deadlier than most weapons in many modes. After an odd silence, Bungie now say they'll fix it next week. Some players aren't best pleased because…

RPS Asks: Which Witcher should Netflix Witcher watchers play?

If someone enjoyed Netflix's live-action Witcher series and it made them want to try the games, where should they start? Following the show's debut in December, I've had pals who sorta fell out of games pop up asking that to me, some sort of professional opinion-haver. Should they start at the beginning of CD Projekt Red's series? Skip to the end? Are the older games…

Monster Hunter: World’s Iceborne expansion is now out on PC too

A chill wind blows today, carrying the distinct scent of dinosaur dung. Monster Hunter: World has just launched its Iceborne expansion on PC, sending hunters to icy new lands to fight tough new monsters (and tougher versions of old monsters). We're arriving late as Iceborne hit consoles in September 2019, though here the PC delay means I'm getting a more authentic and holistic experience because…

Sundered is the latest Epic Games Store giveaway

Thursday is freebie day on the Epic Games Store, with a new game rotating in to be free for keepsies for the next week. This time it's Sundered, the hand-drawn metroidvania from the studio behind Jotun. Our former John (RPS in peace) declared it "a completely wonderful metroidvania" in his Sundered review so do have a look.

League Of Legends kicking off the new season with a Warriors cover

As League Of Legends winds up to start its tenth season on Friday, Riot Games have dropped a new anthem for the MOBA - or an old one, really. The new season's cinematic music video is a cover of Warriors, see, the iconic (and never-bested) 2014 World Championship theme by Imagine Dragons. Now the song is all grim, choral, and bwampy, like so many other…

Magic: Legends looks to turn the card game all Diablo-y

A new trailer gives the first in-game peek at Magic: Legends, the action-RPG set in the world of monumental card game Magic: The Gathering. Made by Cryptic Studios, the mob behind City Of Heroes and Star Trek Online, it looks a whole lot more like a Diablo-y click-clicker than the MMO I had once expected. Initial whispers of Cryptic's Magic game in 2017 described it…

Destiny 2’s latest Exotic quest is unusually simple

Last night, Destiny 2 launched a quest for season pass holders to get a new Exotic-rarity gun, Devil's Ruin. It's weird. Many recent Exotic quests have involved grinding through a whole lot of busywork, and this mostly skips that. You can get Devil's Ruin in twenty minutes. After just one Sundial run then a short object hunt, your reward is a shiny new gun and…

No, Escape From Tarkov won’t add female playable characters

After a year-ish of steadily growing a fanbase, serious Russian scavenging sim-o-shooter Escape From Tarkov recently exploded in popularity thanks in part to promotion from some big Twitch streamers. The torrent of new interested people have come bearing wishes and questions, including wondering if the developers will add playable female characters. No, Battlestate Games say, they won't. There's your answer. It seems they don't consider…

American trade union launches campaign for games industry unionisation

It's no secret that the video games industry is plagued with workplace issues from abusive culture and long hours of 'crunch' to cyclical layoffs even at huge -- and hugely profitable -- companies. Interest has been growing in unionisation to help shift the balance of power in the industry and start changing it for the better, and today the movement got a fair boost. The…

Hypnospace Outlaw has delivered this year’s hot Christmas jam

The biggest musical surprise of this Christmas is not the back-to-back Christmas Number Ones for songs about sausage rolls but a monster jam coming in hot from Hypnospace Outlaw. The Chowder Man, a faded rockstar you might have encountered when surfing the information sleeperhighway, released a Christmas song over the weekend. It's named Christmas Pain In Christmas Town and here's the thing: it's an absolute…
