CD Projekt say no, they’re not already making Cyberpunk 2077’s sequel

The problem with this week's Cyberpunk 2077 confusion is that our world is insufficiently cyber. I suspected CD Projekt weren't saying they were already making another Cyberpunk game, but if machine translation were better or I could jack myself full of languages I might know for certain. Or if I could hack into CD Projekt's servers with the blink of an eye I'd know that…

Slay The Spire’s fourth character will be free

A fourth playable character is coming to Slay The Spire for free, developers MegaCrit Games announced today. They've muttered before about the possibility of adding more dungeoneers, and confirmed it today while also blasting the first update since their delightful deck-building dungeon-crawler left early access in January. My favourite Spireslayer is the Defect, the character which Mega Crit added long after the first two -…

Skywind mod shows off Morrowind’s levitation and spears remade in Skyrim

Continuing to impress with a commitment to fanciness and authenticity in remaking The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind as a Skyrim mod, a new Skywind trailer has drafted an actual Skyrim voice actor to natter while we see how it's shaping up. Spears are in, levitation is go, and oh god go away cliff racers. Azura there is played by Lani Minella, whose voice spilled forth…

Cyberpunk 2077 has two more teams working on multiplayer and a mysterious Cyberthing

Update: Nnnope that's wrong, CD Projekt have responded. While Cyberpunk 2077 as we know it is a singleplayer RPG, reports of recent comments from CD Projekt president Adam Kiciński say that multiplayer is still coming in some way, along with some other thing. It seems like Cyberpunk 2077 will receive a multiplayer mode, while the other Cyberthing sounds more like a new game. Or an…

American horror novelist Alan Wake finds unlikely new publisher, Finnish video game company Remedy Entertainment

Working with publishers led the the novelist Alan Wake to flip his lid and get chased by ghosts or summat, so Big Al must be thrilled to escape his previous publisher contract. Alan Wake developers Remedy Entertainment have announced they've gained the publishing rights to the third-person spooker-shooters, which were previously held by Microsoft. This self-publishing seems more a happy consequence of old contract conditions…

F1 2019 running in the shadows

"Damn your love!" shout Codemasters. "Damn your lies!" And with that, F1 2019 is go, the latest video game adaptation of Fleetwood Mac's song The Chain. The frustrations, burdens, and dependencies of the human heart are transmuted into a metaphorical automobile, which we must drive at great speed through the straights and chicanes of life, listening to the wind blow while surrounded by rivals and…

Meet angsty Ellen Page and her spooky ghostpal in the Beyond: Two Souls demo

Following the PC debut of Heavy Rain earlier this week, developers Quantic Dream are now offering a demo slice of their next former-PlayStation-exclusive, Beyond: Two Souls. This is the one where Ellen Page plays a teenager with a spooky ghostpal that gets her into all sorts of scrapes, not to mention a wacky government programme overseen by the Green Goblin himself, Willem Dafoe. The one…

Lovecraftian detective ’em up The Sinking City out now

The Lovecraftian detective-o-horror RPG The Sinking City launched today, inviting us all to leave this glorious heatwave and venture into a half-drowned city where things lurk in the flooded streets and even on dry land people have a touch of that Innsmouth look. It's, like, okay, according to Alice Bee's The Sinking City review. Despite her hesitance to recommend it, I am still curious. Not…

Battlefield V’s secret hand gun is perfectly horrifying

The Battlefield games have long been nests of Easter eggs, hiding everything from rare reload animations where you perform magic tricks on guns to giant prehistoric sharks who'll leap up and git ya. Battlefield V still had a few to hide, it seems, and may yet have more. But what's most got my attention is the horrible finger gun found this week, fired by having…

World Of Warships adds… let me double-check my notes… a post-apocalyptic battle royale mode

Today, a day which is not April 1st, multiplayer naval rumble World Of Warships launched a battle royale mode. With a kooky post-apocalyptic setting. In a game about historical warships. Unless someone has gone to great lengths to replace my calendar so I think it's June and not April, this is happening. Alrighty then. As an observer, I am delighted by this wild tonal shift.…

Ubisoft’s numbers say subtitles are really jolly popular

95% of Assassin's Creed Odyssey players kept subtitles on, Ubisoft have revealed, and 50% of The Division 2 players are currently playing with them on too. These surprising statistics and more come from a wee tweetblast this week confirming that yes, subtitles are hugely desirable even in murdergames. Even as someone who often plays with subs on, I'm surprised by the numbers shared by David…

Glen Schofield, the director of Call Of Duty: WWII and executive producer of Dead Space, has joined PUBG Corp to lead an "original narrative experience" set in the world of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds. The developers today announced Schofield as CEO of their new studio, Striking Distance. I am, as a leading authority on the narrative of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds, fascinated to see what the new team bring…

League Of Legends joins Auto Chess craze with Teamfight Tactics today

The megaMOBA League Of Legends today officially joins the Auto Chess craze with the launch of Teamfight Tactics, an 'autobattler' mode based on the mega-popular Dota 2 mod Auto Chess. Yes, the same mod whose makers are working on a standalone version, Auto Chess, and which Valve have copied for their own spin-off, Dota Underlords. It's been a busy year for a mod which, back…

Steam Summer Sale just started, so check our recommendations

Summer, against all odds, has finally arrived. To me this means it's time to hit the beach and be in the sea as much as possible. To video game stores, the beach is a threat to their very existence. To tempt and tether you to your monitor, they launch big summer sales full of bargains. How dare they! Selling good video games for cheap so…

Florida gets even weirder in early slice of Fallout: Miami mod

You don't need to play Fallout 4 for a vision of the USA as a post-apocalyptic wasteland filled with wacky characters and deadly critters; you can experience it for real with a visit to Florida. But a vision of post-apocalyptic Florida, oh boy, are you sure you can handle that? Best you ease yourself in slowly, perhaps with the newly-released early slice of the mod…

Jason! Jason! Jason! Jason is now on PC with Heavy Rain

Quantic Dream today bring to PC perhaps the best of David Cage's PlayStation-exclusive QTE storysprawls, Heavy Rain. I'm damning with faint praise there, but the murder mystery told through the perspectives of four characters is an interesting one at times. Also, it's hilarious to repeatedly fail QTEs to shake a carton of orange juice then just stand there with your digiman staring blankly as the…

QT is PT but cute, see, and it’s free

First-person spooker PT, the legendary 'playable teaser' which announced Silent Hills, has inspired hordes of copies, remakes, and rip-offs in the years since Konami cancelled Silent Hills and tried to sweep both under the rug. None have surprised or delighted me nearly as much as QT, a free first-person peeteer released over the weekend by the fella behind Morning Post and Library. As if the…
