Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice sneakily launches in the dead of night

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is out now (at least in the UK) almost a full day earlier than expected - fitting that FromSoftware's ninja soulsborne would stage a daring night-time infiltration. Earlier this evening, I checked Steam, and it stated there was another twenty hours until the game unlocked. Now, I've just had my first ninja-run around Sengoku-era Japan, and can confirm that it looks…

The Wind becomes a promo game from the maker of Faith

Talk about promo games normally make me think of high profile stuff like Carmen Sandiego invading Google Earth, so I've got to tip a weather-beaten stetson to IFC films for going low-fi with The Wind. They've tapped Airdorf, solo dev behind the Faith series of bible-quoting exorcise 'em ups to produce a short browser horror game based on their upcoming movie. It's only a few…

We. The Revolution faces the court of public opinion today

French revolutionary judge sim We. The Revolution (a clunky capitalisation I shall not use often, sorry devs Polyslash) is out now, sneaking up on me quiet as a guillotine blade. It's vaguely similar to Papers, Please, in that it's a game about being a political cog in a complex machine. Less similarly, this is about being one of the bigger cogs - a judge of some…

Oxenfree and Tacoma are free today

Not every problem in games needs to be solved by shooting, stabbing or going very fast. Sometimes you just need to stop, listen and talk things over, like in Oxenfree and Tacoma, two lovely story-driven games that you can snag free right now and keep forever. Contemporary teen ghost story Oxenfree by Night School is the current fortnightly giveaway over on the Epic store, full…

Monster Hunter: World adding HD texture pack on April 4th

Capcom are laying a common grumble about Monster Hunter: World on PC to rest in a couple weeks, with the release of an optional HD texture pack. While the PC version of the game is the smoothest, nicest-looking way to play the enormous boss rush, eagle-eyed folks noticed that many textures in the PC release were slightly fuzzier up close than their console equivalents. Not…

Oxygen Not Included exits the early access airlock late May

Klei's popular space science, management and survival sandbox Oxygen Not Included will launch out of early access late this May, almost exactly two years from its original debut. In a recent announcement on their official forums, Klei stated that the game was in the final stretch now, and there's only one update planned between now and launch. The final version of the game, while not…

Wizard Of Legend adds a windy gust of air-magic content in free DLC

Wizard Of Legend was a good game with a great core to it. Channelling the best bits of Avatar: The Last Airbender, it sold the fantasy of being a kung-fu wizard through exacting, frantic combat. My only real gripe with it in my review here was that there just wasn't enough of it. Today, developers Contingent99 addressed that, adding a bit more of everything to…

Creature In The Well mixes some pinball into its dungeon crawling

During today's Nintendo indie showcase stream, Flight School Studio had their own PC-bound weird take on the hack n' slash dungeon crawler to announce; Creature In The Well. Part melee combat, part bullet hell, part pinball, and all stylish, thanks to a mix of comic-style shading effects that I don't think I've ever seen in 3D before. Players control a sword-swinging robot as it descends…

The Outer Worlds, Control, The Sinking City and others go Epic exclusive

Epic Games are getting serious about going head-to-head with Valve with their store, and have the war-chest to prove it. They've just announced a slew of exclusives, including Obsidian's highly anticipated The Outer Worlds, and Remedy's upcoming horror shooter Control. Frogwares's cthulhoid detective mystery The Sinking City will be making its debut on the upstart storefront too. This is on top of Epic's surprise announcement…

Double Fine announce RAD, a post-apocalyptic hack n’ slasher

Double Fine have just unveiled tongue-in-cheek '80s-themed post-apocalyptic hack n' slasher RAD. Players control a baseball bat-swinging, life-bringing teen as they explore a radioactive wasteland, fighting and looting as they go, action RPG style. Wherever you walk, lush green grass sprouts in your wake, but exposure to the weirdness of the wastes changes you in turn. Players can pick up a bunch of big, weird, visible…

Rainbow Six Siege puts a team-killer’s fate in the hands of their victims

Ubisoft are changing how team-killing affects players in Rainbow Six Siege, with a new "reverse friendly fire" system rolling out on the test servers soon, described in this dev-blog post. If you manage to murder one of your friends in the twitchy tactical shooter (easy to do accidentally), the player you whacked will get a kill-cam showing them exactly what happened. At this point, it…

The System Shock remake drips with neon nostalgia in new footage

Two servings of System Shock goodness in just one day? Why yes, I will have cyber-seconds. Following up after OtherSide's System Shock 3 trailer, Night Dive have shared twenty minutes of uncut exploration from their upcoming remake of the first game. It's taken a while to get here, via a detour into a since-cancelled redesign, but I can't grumble about the results. If their aim…

Battlestar Galactica: Deadlock expands with campaign DLC and battle chatter

While it didn't make much impact at launch, I tip my metaphorical hat to Black Lab Games for supporting Battlestar Galactica: Deadlock until it became the strategy game I always wanted. Today, they launched Sin & Sacrifice, the last expansion of 'Season One', adding a new story-heavy campaign, two new ship types, TV-authentic dynamic radio chatter and a free update adding a veterancy system. As…

Apex Legends bounces into its Wild Frontier season today

Apex Legends's first major update since launch is live now. New robo-legged (no apelegs here) legend Octane is all about going fast, although he's a bit tougher than his skinny Borderlands-esque frame would suggest. He constantly regenerates health, and can invest it in temporary speed boosts. His ultimate ability is a big ol' jump pad - a portable trampoline that can be used by your…

Halo: Master Chief Collection to support Windows 7 and possibly mods on PC

In a Q&A session on Reddit today, 343 Industries's Brian "Ske7ch" Jarrard had plenty of good news on the upcoming PC version of Halo: The Master Chief Collection. In addition to Steam support, the remastered Halo series (starting with Halo: Reach) will also support Windows 7 and plenty of PC mod cons too. Among the goodies mentioned were FOV sliders, uncapped frame-rates and even the…

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice explains the tools of the ninja trade in new trailer

Some days, I lament that FromSoftware -- once known for Otogi and Armored Core -- are now (near) exclusively the Soulsborne studio. Then I watch today's near-launch 'overview' trailer for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice and suddenly don't feel so sad, because it looks fab. It's a more agile and aggressive game than even Bloodborne or the similarly Sengoku-era styled Nioh, blending the familiar high tension…

Halo: The Master Chief Collection taking beta sign-ups, likely won’t be Play Anywhere

When Microsoft and 343 Industries announced last week that Halo: The Master Chief Collection was headed to PC, and even to Steam, I was quietly waiting for the other shoe to drop. It couldn't be quite as good as they were describing, right? While the entire Halo series up to Halo 4 is headed to Steam, remastered, starting with the excellent prequel Halo: Reach, an…

Apex Legends launches into its first season tomorrow with mad lad Octane

Apex Legends kicks off its first cosmetic-driven season tomorrow - Wild Frontier. Players of Respawn's overnight battle royale hit can plonk down 950 Apex Coins (1000 is roughly $10) on the game's first Battle Pass, offering a linear chain of 100 cosmetic rewards to earn through play over the coming months. Those who can't wait for fashion can plonk down 2800 coins to skip straight…

The Culling shutting down servers on May 15th

Despite being one of the first on the battle royale block, even going free-to-play hasn't been enough to save The Culling. Developers Xaviant have announced that the lights go out on their dystopian game show-themed survival shooter on May 15th. It's been a rough year for the studio, with The Culling 2 announced, released and shut down due to lack of player interest within a…

Bright Memory to restart development after early access success

Bright Memory, a blend of FPS and Devil May Cry-style combo-heavy combat by solo developer FYQD, is to restart development almost after selling better than expected in early access. Those who bought the original 'Episode 1' version of the game will be upgraded to the new Bright Memory: Infinite when it's released, although it's anyone's guess how long that'll take. The new version of the…
