Rainbow Six Siege’s Grand Larceny event invites you to an old-timey British heist

For the next two weeks, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege is swapping out hostages and bombs for safeboxes full of… well it doesn't actually say what they're full of. I imagine it's money, or gold, or something that old-timey English gangsters like, because it's all part of the Grand Larceny event, inspired by 1920s British mobs. Ubisoft have reimagined the old Hereford map to create…

This Animal Crossing Island Planner lets you make cute island layouts on PC

You may not be able to play Animal Crossing proper on your PC, but now there's an Island Planner that lets you design your very own village layout. Created by Rob Fichman, the Island Planner lets you figure out your terraforming plans before you commit to them in your actual game. It's great because the terraforming in Animal Crossing itself kinda sucks, and the Planner…

Overwatch has ditched hero pools for lower ranked players

Looks like Blizzard are starting to realise that most Overwatch players aren't all in the Top 500, as they've removed hero pools for lower competitive ranks. Players from Bronze up to Diamond will no longer have to deal with the weekly hero bans because, let's face it, those of us at these levels never use the same compositions as the Overwatch League, do we?"Competitive play…

Here’s your first look at Lord Of The Rings: Gollum

Some of the very first screenshots from Daedalic Entertainment's The Lord Of The Rings: Gollum have appeared on the internet, and it looks fairly decent. The image above is one of the better ones to get a look at how the titular cave gremlin will look, and he sure does look like Gollum. The developers said previously that this iteration of him wouldn't look like…

Sea Of Thieves has a dedicated photography subreddit and it’s really lovely

So often I find myself caught staring at the gorgeous land and sea-scapes of Sea Of Thieves. The views in this game really catch you off guard - sometimes it's a sunset peaking over the waves after you've just emerged from the hull of your ship, others it's the moody sky reflecting off the water as a finally storm passes. If you find yourself grabbing…

Exciting things are happening in Apex Legends - well, it's exciting if you're into the game's lore at least. This week, Respawn have dropped a couple of tasty teasers on Twitter, as they do when something fun is about to be announced. It all looks to be leading up the new video in the Stories From The Outlands series that's dropping later today, which will…

Fallout 76 has stopped wastelanders from nicking your guns

Not long after the Wastelanders update dropped, Fallout 76 players started noticing that some of their weapons were disappearing after they died. But it wasn't that they were vanishing into thin air - it turns out some opportunistic new human NPCs were looting players' corpses, and nicking the best guns from their bodies. Then would just wander round using the stolen goods right in front…

It's not even out of beta yet and Valorant is tempting pros from other games into its ranks. San Francisco Shock's star player, Jay "Sinatraa" Won, is the first Overwatch League player to be making the switch, joining up with the Sentinels' new competitive Valorant team. Sinatraa announced his retirement from Overwatch yesterday, saying he "straight up just lost passion for the game"."Idk what the…

Valorant now letting players turn off its anti-cheat when not playing

As you may know by now, Riot's new tactical FPS, Valorant, has an anti-cheat system that's come under fire over the last few weeks for allegedly being a bit invasive. The reason for this is that the software, named Vanguard, runs a kernel-level driver at start-up, giving it full administrator privileges. For obvious reasons, this has raised concerns that Riot are giving themselves access to,…

Fire up your removal van, Moving Out launches today

Grab your friends and start throwing boxes out the window because Moving Out is here. It's a couch co-op game in which you will literally have to cooperatively carry couches (amongst many other items of furniture) and chuck them on your moving van as fast as you can. It's a fun and frantic Overcooked-like with some adorable character design to boot. When I played it…

Sea Of Thieves has a great bug that flings ships into the air, so I rated their techniques

Sea Of Thieves has a very good bug that can make ships spontaneously yeet themselves into the sky. Sometimes it occurs at outposts, presumably when another player's boat is trying to spawn exactly where yours is docked. Other times it happens when you ram your ship into something and get it a bit stuck. The game is usually pretty good with course correction when these…

Feature: This expedition, at least, promises success.

Have You Played… Darkest Dungeon?

"Remind yourself that overconfidence is a slow and insidious killer."All it takes is seeing one a single quote from the Ancestor in Darkest Dungeon, and I've instantly got his voice booming in the back of my mind. I suppose it's quite fitting for a roguelike RPG based on lovecraftian horror to still hear voices after you turn it off.

Looks like pets are on the way to Fallout 76

The dog companions in Fallout games are iconic. Dogmeat? A hero. Rex? The best boy. I was surprised Fallout 76 never put in any sort of dog friend to help you out, but now I see Bethesda were just taking their time getting round to it. In a Q&A on Reddit yesterday, a couple of developers teased some of the stuff coming to the wastelands…

Sea Of Thieves players are immortalising their real-life pets with its new cats

I know I won't shut up about it, but Sea Of Thieves got cats for pets yesterday. And as if they weren't brilliant enough, pirates are now welcoming these furry friends aboard their ships to remind them of their real-life kitties. For some players, the four-legged crewmates are a sort of memorial, too, naming their in-game cats after pets that have passed on, so they…

There’s a special deer in Fallout 76 that will lead you to stashes of loot (but players keep killing it)

The next time you come across a Radstag in Fallout 76, have a quick check of its name before you start pelting it with bullets. The Wastelanders update brought with it many new and wondrous things, and one of those was the Observant Radstag. These albino versions of Fallout's radioactive deer are a bit different to their regular Radstag brothers and sisters - some say,…

Recruit a kitty as your first mate in Sea Of Thieves’ Ships Of Fortune update today

New pets, a dastardly PvP faction and fresh ways to earn extra gold and reputation headline the shiny new things waiting for you right now as part of Sea Of Thieves' April update. This is a big one folks, I don't think there's been an update with this amount of stuff since Tall Tales were introduced for the game's anniversary last year. There's none of…

Into The Breach’s latest update lowers weapon prices to encourage experimentation

Subset Games' bug-shootin', mech-drivin' roguelike Into The Breach got its 1.2 update yesterday, bringing with it a bunch of new additions and changes. The most interesting is reducing the price of new weapons, cutting them all from a standard two Reputation points to only one. The devs said this is "to encourage more risk-free experimentation of weapons during a run". I like this idea a…
