Valorant is getting a deathmatch game mode this week

A team? Abilities? Economy? Pfft, get rid of it. Valorant's second Act is dropping this week, bringing with it a brand new free-for-all deathmatch game mode in which you'll have to rely on your shooting prowess alone to guide you to Victory. It's coming to Riot Game's guns n' wizards FPS on Wednesday 5th August. The day before that, however, Valorant Act 2 launches, with…

Warframe’s Heart Of Deimos expansion has two giant worms eternally battling for glory

Warframe's gone and infested an entire moon with creepy crawlies for its Heart Of Deimos expansion. Shown properly for the first time during today's Waframe fan event livestream, the expansion also includes other cool stuff, like customisable Warframe powers and a huge new open world area. But I'm more interested in the pair of gigantic worms endlessly warring to take control of the moon. At…

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare is getting new operators with its fifth season next week

There's a sneaky-sounding new faction joining the fray in Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone next week, and they're bringing some new weapons and operators with them. They're called Shadow Company, which is a name you may recognise if you're familiar with Modern Warfare 2. I'm not really sure what the lore implications of that are, but hey, even if there aren't any, they're…

Overwatch’s Orisa nearly got an ability that let her teleport across the map

Imagine you're having a scuffle in Blizzard's funky little FPS, Overwatch. Most of the enemy team is here, except one of their tanks is definitely missing. That's when you see it - a drop pod hurtling down from the sky. It crushes your teammates upon landing, before the gentle giant mech Orisa emerges from it. According to the Overwatch devs in a recent Q&A, this…

Disgaea 4 Complete+ is making its way to PC this year

Now, I'm no JRPG connoisseur, but I hear that people quite like the bizarre, energetic world of Disgaea's tactical RPGs. It's probably a good thing, then, that Disgaea 4 Complete+ is heading to Steam and Xbox Game Pass for PC this autumn. I'm pretty sure the only one we're missing on PC now is poor old Disgaea 3. Perhaps one day it, too, shall escape…

Microsoft Flight Simulator is coming to Steam, with VR support later this year

The game will be making a cheeky landing on Steam when it releases next month, so now you'll be able to choose whether to grab it on there, or go with the version that's coming the…

Sekiro is getting a free update this October, adding new outfits and a boss rush

Surprise! FromSoftware's most recent very difficult action game Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is getting a big free update on October 29th. Because of who I am as a person, the immediate thing I'm drawn to in said update is the fact that there are some cool new outfits for everyone's favourite Shinobi. But there are two other very exciting things on the way, too -…

Sea Of Thieves’ Ashen Winds update is here, and so are some very angry fire pirates

Remember the other day when I reported that some skelly-head flamethrowers were coming to Sea Of Thieves? Well, it turns out those heads belong to four particularly deadly Skeleton Captains, who've arrived in today's Ashen Winds update. It doesn't look like it's going to be easy to nab their flaming skulls, either, as each of these Captains will use all sorts of dirty tricks to…

Watch out! You can die in the first 15 seconds of Baldur’s Gate 3

In Baldur's Gate 3, you'll be able to play as an almost-vampire. His name is Astarion, and he's technically a vampire spawn rather than a fully-fledged blood sucker, but like vampires across all sorts of fantasy media, he can't go into places without being specifically invited and, more importantly, he can't cross running water. Unfortunately for Astarion, there just so happens to be a large…

Co-op dungeon crawler Blightbound comes out in early access today

Don't you just hate it when you finally defeat the bad guy, and he makes the land turn to ruin anyway? Now here you are, living on a mountain top because some evil titan-dude has released a plague beneath it. You should probably do something about that - and you can, when Blightbound releases in early access today. It's a multiplayer dungeon crawler in which…

Ubisoft cancelled an Arthurian RPG lead by Dragon Age’s Mike Laidlaw

I remember when Mike Laidlaw revealed he had joined Ubisoft Quebec a couple of years ago. What a match! The former lead designer for Dragon Age working with the studio that created the brilliant Assassin's Creed: Odyssey. Surprisingly, Laidlaw announced his departure from Ubi just a year later, which a report revealed today was shortly after the game he was working on was cancelled. Even…

Red Dead Online is getting a “naturalism” Frontier Pursuit today

Rockstar is inviting you to become one with nature in Red Dead Online today. At least, I'm reasonably sure that's what they mean. They're introducing a new Frontier Pursuit "that will introduce players to the secrets of naturalism", which sounds a lot like you'll be able to become a hunter, or maybe just make friends with the animals. Hm, actually, probably not. Let's be honest,…

Call Of Duty’s next game named Cold War, says Doritos packet

Adding to the ever-growing list of places the next Call Of Duty game has leaked, fans have reportedly discovered a promo for Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War on some Doritos packaging. Of all the leaks we've seen so far, this is absolutely the one I'd believe. See what happens when you leave your announcement too long, Activision? Gaming snacks don't have time to…

Counter-Strike: GO has swapped in a couple of player-made maps

It's time to say goodbye to the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive maps Chlorine and Jungle, as they've been swapped out to make room for two new community ones. Say hello, then, to Swamp and Mutiny. The first one is pretty self-explanatory, it's a big green swamp complete with a boat repair shop and some murky water. The second, Mutiny, is pirate-themed - as you might expect…

Apex Legends’ crossplay won’t force PC players to match with console

It's a strange new world where this morning's video game news was discovered through TikTok. Respawn dev, Jake Smullin, took to the video sharing platform, as he so often does, to assure players that Apex Legends' upcoming crossplay feature will only put console players in PC lobbies if there's a PC player in their squad. "Have been seeing lots of console players worrying about this…

Dontnod don’t want to tell a transgender story “rooted in pain or trauma”

Dontnod Entertainment have popped a spoiler-filled FAQ up for their new narrative-driven game, Tell Me Why, detailing how trans character Tyler's story is going to be handled. They've made the FAQs as sort of content warnings so fans can get an idea of what Tyler's experience is going to be like before playing."So many mainstream narratives about trans people are rooted in pain or trauma,…

Hello Neighbor 2 coming to PC and Xbox next year

The strange home-invasion simulator, Hello Neighbor, has managed to bag itself a sequel, set to launch next year. From what I know of the first one, you play as a nosy child who will not stop breaking into a man's house, no matter how many creepy things you discover in there. Hello Neighbor 2 is plonking you back in that same neighbourhood, except this time…
