Cloudpunk’s cockpit update puts a camera behind the steering wheel

Ah, the hum of your hover-engine beneath your feet. The pitter-patter of rain on the windshield. The light glow of the GPS as your dispatch screen lights up. Until now, I could only imagine the interior of one of Cloudpunk's blocky hover-cabs. That's all changed with today's Cockpit Update, which puts you right in the drivers seat for a night's shift - briefly cutting fares…

Carto’s delightfully hand-drawn map quest begins today

Gosh, what I'd give to have the cartographic powers of Carto's leading lass. It'd make the commute a hell of a lot quicker if I could just pick up a square kilometre of Leith and plop it down next to my flat. Sunhead Games' adorable, map-shifting puzzler sets off today, letting you step in and solve some lovely geographical jigsaw puzzles.

Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed, again, into December

We were so close, folks. With a month to go until its planned release, CD Projekt Red have chosen to once again delay Cyberpunk 2077, pushing back the open-world RPG's release date at the eleventh hour to get all nine platforms in shape before release. Cyberpunk 2077's release date is now December 10th, three weeks later than its previously-planned November 19th launch.

Screenshot Saturday Sundays: Painted trips, sharp drifts and office chair kickflips

Screenshot Saturday Sundays! There you are, kicking over piles of dried-out dead leaves on the pavement, only to discover there were a load of old game development screenshots, videos and gifs hidden under there. Let's hang 'em up on the wall properly, eh? This week: A painted prison, razor-sharp drifting, office chair kickflips and transdimensional headphones.

Pull heists as a sentient spaceship in A Long Journey To An Uncertain End

Don'tcha know it's illegal for spaceships to have consciousness 'round here? Set to take off sometime next year, A Long Journey To An Uncertain End is the galaxy-hopping debut from Crispy Creative, a narrative management space opera that seems to imagine a version of Cowboy Bebop where the eponymous starship had the final say in all the semi-legal shenanigans. And also one where Ein's a…

Among Us has been overrun by a politically-charged spam attack

Last weekend, Among Us was experiencing the highest of highs, with hundreds of thousands of eyes watching US congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez face off against both streamers and a fellow politician in the spacey stab 'em up. Unfortunately for developers Innersloth, however, it didn't take long for that high to come crashing down. This week saw a seemingly massive spam attack strike Among Us' servers, locking…

Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s Zombies Onslaught mode won’t be on PC for a year

Even up on our high, turbo-cooled horses, we PC folks are not so above the petty factionalism of console rivalry. With Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War just around the corner, Activision this week revealed that they're once again locking a bonus Call Of Duty mode behind PlayStation 4 and 5 copies of the game for a year. This time, it's Zombies Onslaught, a…

There’s nary a nip to be seen in The Dungeon Experience’s full reveal

Okay, so there may be one or two. But they're not the focal point of the piece, which is more than could be said for Jacob Janerka's previous attempt to snag wishlists for The Dungeon Experience. After failing to draw eyes on the game by way of viral embarrassment, the Aussie dev is trying a more traditional approach with a proper reveal trailer. Sometimes you've…

The Epic Games Store is having a grand old halloween sale

Is there anything scarier than buying products at below the recommended retail price? Almost certainly, which is why I'd hesitate to call the Epic Games Store Halloween Sale particularly spooky. It is, however, taking a massive knife to game prices across the platform, with some pretty hefty discounts of up to 80% going on a number of range of fantastic games until the sale wraps…

No, this Mortal Engines-themed Planet Coaster build won’t eat your rides

Alright, listen. The 2018 Mortal Engines adaptation might've been largely forgettable, but it did a damn fine job of bringing the book series' ridiculous towns-turned-monster-trucks to life. Now, one Planet Coaster architect has crafted their own version of London-Upon-Wheels, wrapping their fantasy amusement park around a multi-tiered truck of a city. It's just a shame there's no way it'll ever move. Unfortunately, Planet Coaster just…

What The Golf? swings onto Steam with a new level editor

Like most jolfing pitches, playing a round of What The Golf? on PC has, until now, the domain of those snooty folks up at the Epic Games Store country club. But no more! The king's game has been democratised, and you can now thwack in a few holes with Triband's wonderful ball-smacker over on Steam, arriving with the tools to hand-craft your own golfing nightmares.

Cutesy Halloween adventure Costume Quest 2 is free on Epic

Spook-o-ween is almost upon us, dear readers. And while there's not a single fun-sized Snickers in sight, trotting up to old Mr Epic Games Store's front door this week has treated to two new freebies - Double Fine's charming Costume Quest 2 and the decisively less whimsical Layers Of Fear 2. Same as before, they're yours to keep until this time next week, when they'll…

Civilization VI has gone all Sid Meier’s Pirates with a swashbuckling new mode

This month's free update for the hegaxonal society generator adds the Pirates multiplayer scenario, daring you to wear in those sea legs by becoming the most feared fleet commander on the high seas. Plunder trade routes, inspire fear, flee the forces of burgeoning imperial powers... hang on, Sid,…

Manifold Garden’s architectural puzzles are now on Steam and Itch

Are you lost, readers? I've only wandered briefly through Manifold Garden's recursive puzzle labyrinths, but I'm afraid to say I am too. Oh, well, at least it's a gorgeous place to find yourself stuck in. If you're better at thinking your way out of a tight spot, you might even find yourself breezing through William Chyr's beautiful void, with Manifold Garden finding a new home…

Apex Legends raises wallrunning from the dead for this year’s Fight Or Fright

They're doing it! By god, they're doing it! Apex Legends is gearing up for its big Halloween monster mash - and this time, the demons are crawling all over the goddamn walls. This year's Fight or Fright event is bringing wallrunning back from Titanfall 2, but only for those Legends unfortunate enough to succumb to undeath.

Supergiant artist goes behind-the-scenes on building a god in Hades

Hades is a bloody gorgeous game. There's no arguing that. But did you know that the enigmatic Nyx started life as one of the Fury sisters? Crafting a god is a strange process for mortal hands - but such is the job of the artists at Supergiant games, one of whom has this week gone in-depth on how the studio models, rigs, textures and animates…

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s post-launch expansions set sail for Ireland, Paris

In letting us pillage jolly old England, Assassin's Creed: Valhalla has already promised a tempting power fantasy. But Ubisoft's upcoming historical stab 'em up isn't stopping with just one country. Revealed in a new trailer outlining Valhalla's post-launch plans, it looks like Eivor will be setting sail for the Emerald Isle before taking an axe to Ubisoft's own Parisian front door in two major expansions,…

Fallout 4’s New Vegas remake mod saddles up for a slick new trailer

If I remember correctly, one of the bigger complaints against Fallout 4 on release was that it wasn't Fallout: New Vegas. Obsidian's spin-off is seen by many as the series' last stab at proper, old-school RPG'ing before Bethesda turned the post-apocalypse into a playful sandbox. Naturally, a group of modders have been hard at work bringing New Vegas' guns 'n' graphics up to date with…

Paper Beast’s origami ecosystem can now be explored without VR

Paper Beast's folded menagerie should be right up my alley. Unfortunately, for the time being, Eric Chahi's wonderful sandbox has been locked behind pricey, clunky VR headsets. Thankfully, Pixel Reef today released Paper Beast: Folded Edition, flattening the digital wilderness into something you and I can play on our non-head-mounted screens.
