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…

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…

Sea Of Thieves is getting skelly-head flamethrowers next week

Have you ever wanted to just lop off a skeleton's head and use it as a flamethrower? It's never even been a thought that's crossed my mind, but Sea Of Thieves seem to be letting us do exactly that in next week's update. They're part of the new Ashen Winds update, which is arriving on Wednesday the 29th of July. Be cautious, though, using up…

Psychonauts 2 features the dulcet tones of Jack Black

I had looked away from the Xbox Games Showcase for a mere couple of minutes when the new Psychonauts 2 trailer dropped, so you may understand my surprise when I started hearing Jack Black's voice blaring through my headphones. That's right, Double Fine's sequel to the bizarre brain-exploring platformer will feature songs performed by the School Of Rock teacher himself. Here's that trailer with the,…

The first chapter of Dontnod Entertainment's Tell Me Why comes out on August 27th. Announced last year, Tell Me Why is another episodic game series in a similar style to their previous game, Life Is Strange.

Here it is, the one you've been waiting for: Microsoft have announced a brand new Fable at tonight's Xbox Games Showcase. It's being made by Playground Games, known for Forza Horizon, but it doesn't sound like Fable 4 - it sounds like reboot.

Rare give us another look at the gorgeous Everwild

I absolutely fell in love with Everwild when Rare announced it last year. Back then, it was a bit of a mystery what this gorgeous natural, fantasy-looking game might entail, but thanks to a new trailer shown during Microsoft's Xbox Games Showcase, we finally know a bit more. It sounds like this beautiful world is all about caring for the weird and wonderful creatures within…

State Of Decay 3 has been announced

Undead Labs have just revealed the next instalment of their zombie-fest survival horror, State Of Decay 3. From the reveal trailer it looks like it's set in a snowy wilderness, complete with scary wolves, and even scarier zombified-wildlife. We also see a lonely lady just trying to get by, aptly armed with a crossbow. Take a look for yourself:

Eat some scientists as a bloody blob monster in Carrion today

It's not often you get to unapologetically play the bad guy. When you do there are always moral dilemmas, and reasons why you're doing the bad thing. That doesn't seem to be the case in Carrion, however. It's a new "reverse-horror" made by Phobia Game Studio and published by Devolver Digital, in which you play as a monstrous amalgamation of blood and tentacles. Your goal?…

Yep, BioWare are still making Dragon Age 4

Here we go again. Fighting over scraps of Dragon Age 4 news like corrupted templars desperate to snag the last drop of red lyrium. The last titbits we got were pretty good, to be fair. Those pretty scenes from the EA Play event gave plenty to speculate on for a while. But there's a new tiny morsel of info now, this time coming from BioWare…

Valorant gives big buffs to Viper, little nerfs to Raze and Brimstone

Apparently, Viper is one of the least-picked characters in Valorant because, apparently, her kit wasn't very strong. She's near the bottom of a lot of tier lists, yet here I am thinking she was pretty good. She has a big wall thing and a good smoke that both decay enemy health, as well as smelly little floor grenades that damage enemies. But that just wasn't…

Digital Extremes' fifth annual Warframe event, TennoCon, kicks off next week on August 1st (albeit digitally this year thanks to that pandemic). They'll be revealing the details of the game's next expansion, Heart Of Deimos, and to pique players' interest, they've released a tidbit of info and a cheeky teaser for said expansion already.

Valorant might be getting a replay system so you can rewatch all your cool strats

Riot Games might be adding a replay system to their free-to-play tactical shooter, Valorant, so at some point you may be able to rewatch all your sick plays. Replay systems are so useful, not just for the cool strats, but for watching matches you've played from various perspectives and assessing how you play if you're trying to improve. They're also very satisfying to use to…

Yarntown brings Bloodborne to PC in a cutesy 16-bit style

Yarntown sounds like a really lovely time. Hearing just the name, I'd think of an adorable little village filled with houses made from yarn, held together with knitting needles. It's very much not that, however, it's actually a cutesy 16-bit version of FromSoftware's PS4 exclusive, Bloodborne, made by Max Mraz. It's an impressive feat, too - Max has recreated Bloodborne's very first area, Central Yharnam,…
