SnowRunner is adding a frozen new map next week

Let it not be said that SnowRunner doesn't have enough snow to run (well, drive) through. The rough n' tough truck sim is adding more routes to get stuck in with Lake Kovd, a treacherous frozen quagmire packed that'll arrive with the game's first season pass update later this week. Hope you've brought tyre chains, because it's about to get real slippery in old Russia.

Tropico 6’s city-building shores are free to visit all weekend

There are only so many times I can say "cor, wouldn't it be nice to travel again" in the pandemic-ridden hell year that is 2020. But I'm going to say it again here, because Tropico 6's sun-swept beaches are opening up all weekend. The irreverent, satirical city-builder is currently free to download and try over on Steam, with prices slashed on trips to the rest…

Rocket Arena’s first season fires off later this month

Cannae be having a hero shooter without heroes, can we? Ahead of its launch date next Tuesday, Rocket Arena has shown off more of its bouncy blasty gunfights with two new trailers - one for the expected, eccentric cast of rocket-toting characters, the other for the maps they'll be blasting each other out of - alongside plans to add even more maps and a new…

I woke up too early to enjoy the Oregon Country Fair In The Clouds

If there's a downside to living in the middle of the city, it's that fairs just really aren't a part of my life. But then, with the whole Covid-19 pandemic going on, it's not like there are many being held this year anyway. In place of their usual mud n' music happenings, however, the Oregon Country Fair In The Clouds has taken the 50-year-old folksy…

The Final Hours Of Half-Life Alyx lets you concoct bespoke alien screams

Thought it may as well have felt as much at the time Half-Life: Alyx didn't pop out of a vacuum. Released today, Half-Life: Alyx - Final Hours is an interactive multimedia docu-book full early prototypes and concepts, deets on what Valve's been up to for the last decade, and a bespoke make-your-own-headcrab-scream audio tool. You know, the usual behind-the-scenes stuff.

F1 2020 roars off to a surprisingly early start

Jumping the gun a bit there, aren't we? F1 2020, Codemaster's latest simulationist race 'em up, has sped off a day earlier than expected. That may be grounds for disqualification, but fortunately this a game, not a car. We'll all just have to settle for playing this year's licensed racer a little early. Oooh, what a nuisance, eh? You've really done it now, Codemasters.

World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands is killing its gender transition fee

By all accounts, changing gender in World Of Warcraf has always been simpler than doing it for real. No appointments, no faff, no convincing Bobby Kotick through two years "lived experience" - just pay Blizzard a small fee and they'd let you rebuild your digital persona from the ground up. With this year's World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands expansion, even that hurdle is getting the boot,…

Bloody co-op romp Killing Floor 2 is free on Epic this week

Crikey, it's all gotten rather gruesome on the Epic Games store this week. Co-op slaughter-fest Killing Floor 2 makes its debut on the storefront today, heading up this week's free lineup alongside carceral break-out The Escapists 2 and lonely spacefarer Lifeless Planet. You know the drill - these three are free to grab 'til next Thursday, at which point they'll be replaced by fantasy dungeon-crawler…

Frog Fractions will become the Game Of The Decade this August

Have you played Frog Fractions? While it may seem an unassuming amphibious edu-game, Twinbeard's maths 'em up may be one of the most important games of the last decade. Unfortunately, it's one that's increasingly a pain to actually play. Today, Twinbeard "Sandwich Imagineer" Jim Crawford announced that the game's Steam release is just around the corner, gobbling up its own fraction of Steam this August.

Mow down bosses with a boomstick in this Dark Souls 3 mod

What was your last build in Dark Souls 3? I'm partial to axes myself, though I've had a lot of success in moving to whopping huge greatswords as of late. For my next run, though, I think I'm gonna try something new - blapping my way through Lothric with a sawn-off, filling every undead goon on the walls with buckshot thanks to this ridiculous new…

Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong conspires towards a 2021 release

Bloody hell, I'm starting to lose track of all these World Of Darkness gigs. Taking the spotlight with a new trailer during tonight's Nacon Connect showcase, Vampire: The Masquerade - Swansong is a blood-sucking RPG from Big Bad Wolf that follows three unlikely (and undead) friends teaming up to investigate blood-curdling conspiracies in the heart of Boston. While it's still early days, Swansong will arrive…

Mafia: Definitive Edition’s remastered crime spree has been delayed

Turns out, not even make-believe crime is safe from the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Today, the mob bosses at Hangar 13 announced that Mafia: Definitive Edition, a re-jigged rerelease of the 2002 crime 'em up, will no longer hit its planned August launch. Instead, they're pushing their old fashioned crime romp into September, with a proper peek at Mafia's new look set to air later this…

Halo 3 finally arrives on PC next week

As history would prove, Halo 3 didn't quite finish the fight. For better or worse, they sure did keep making Halo games long after the reigns were handed over to now-caretakers 343 Industries. But us lot on PC will soon be able to close out Bungie's original trilogy, as the stellar closing act finally joins Halo: The Master Chief Collection on Steam and the Windows…

Screenshot Saturday Sundays: Mapmakers, mushrooms and unfortunate fashion

Screenshot Saturday Sundays! We're having a particularly lazy Sunday afternoon this week, but that shouldn't mean forgoing a stroll through the delights on offer through the #ScreenshotSaturday hashtag for our usual weekend viewing. This week: pastel cartography, mycelium cottages, data-corrupted highways from hell and squirrels.

Fortnite is screening anti-racism panel We The People all day

How did you expect Fortnite to celebrate the USA's Independence Day? Fireworks, Rockets. Llamas and musicians falling from the sky? Instead, Epic have more appropriate plans for 2020's 4th of July celebration. As Black Lives Matter protests continue into the Summer, the monolithic battle royale hopes to use its new party island to educate - broadcasting Øpus United's anti-racism presentation We The People throughout the…

Team Fortress 2’s latest strike against bots is silencing new players

If Team Fortress 2's last update cut the fingers off the game's unruly bots, then Valve have followed it up by cutting out their tongues. This week's update for the venerable hat-blaster has doubled down on muting suspicious accounts, removing voice chat from players who've had their text privileges removed. But while that might keep the troublesome bots at bay, it seems some unlucky new…

Cellular Harvest is an utterly alien ecosystem, captured on camera

Photography games are very in right now, haven't you heard? Lifting off earlier this week, Cellular Harvest is a wonderfully relaxing short game about exploring vivid lo-fi wildernesses, capturing alien fauna on camera, and reporting back to HQ so your corporate overlords can turn all those creatures into bug juice. Shooting with cameras, not guns, doesn't make you any less complacent in extinction it seems.

At long last, there is Golf On Mars

David Bowie might once have asked if there is life on Mars, but Desert Golfing developer Justin Smith is quite confident that - if there is - they'll be well up for a round of the king's game. Six years later, and Golf On Mars is swinging onto Steam with a more alien take on the 2014 golf 'em up's peaceful procedural putting. It's more…

Conan Exiles has been exiled from its free launch on the Epic Games Store

Bit on the nose, eh? Swords sharpened, muscles glistening, Conan Exiles was ready to make the jump to the Epic Games Store today, arriving with the fanfare of a spot in Epic's free game rotation. Pity, for the old warrior has been knocked back by a mighty blow. Funcom's sword-swinging survival sandbox has been pushed out of its new home indefinitely - and when it…

Rust’s roads are now littered with knackered old cars

Nudist tree-puncher Rust is feeling the need for speed. While Facepunch Studio's big ol' murder sandbox has so far let you locomote by foot, horseback or the miracle of flight, today's update has littered the wilderness with battered old motorcars. They're filthy, broken, knackered old lemons, but hey - there's a reason the devs didn't call the thing "factory-condition", isn't there?
