Art of Rally’s free demo takes Absolute Drift’s minimal powerslides to the woods

Five years after Absolute Drift, Funselektor have found themselves behind the wheel once again. This week, the minimalist driving developers released a free demo for Art of Rally, a top-down distillation of the (objectively best) motorsport that takes Absolute Drift's textureless powerslides and lets them loose on delightfully toy-like Nordic forest tracks.

Blizzard asks World of Warcraft players if they’d go back to The Burning Crusade

What happens after World of Warcraft: Classic? It's something the MMO throwback was always going to have to deal with, eventually. There's only so much content to revisit after all. As Classic's expiration date slowly draws closer, Blizzard have begun asking players what they'd like to see next - specifically, whether they're ready to head back through the Dark Portal in a Classic-style return to…

Screenshot Saturday Sundays: Keep it clean, eat well and go for a walk

Screenshot Saturday Sundays! A virtual picturebook of holiday snaps from across the game development globe, delivered straight to Twitter's doorstep every seven days. This week, we're basically running down good lockdown practice: wash up often, eat well, and remember to take a nice walk now and again. Maybe don't go hopping on trains right now, mind.

Rip and tear in third-person with this Doom Eternal mod

It feels criminal to do this to Doom Eternal. Doom is the ur-FPS. Not the first, by any means, but the most - the first-person shooter we've been chasing for decades. In their own act of heresy, though, modders have plucked the eyes from our Doom Slayer and hung them a few feet behind his rear, turning Doom Eternal's meaty in-your-face gorefest into a ludicrously…

NieR: Replicant vers.1.22474487139… is bringing the cult 2010 RPG to PC

No, I didn't spill coffee on the keyboard. Yes, the ellipses are part of the title. 10 years after its console debut, NieR is heading to PC with the elegantly-titled Nier: Replicant vers.1.22474487139... - not a remake or a remaster, Square Enix insist, but a spruced-up re-release that's polishing up the audio, sprinkling in some new content, and finally bringing the cult-classic RPG to Steam.

Magic: The Gathering Arena takes Friday Night Magic online as local stores shutter

It's not a great time for physical games. While us videogames lot are enjoying more time than ever to play, it's practically impossible to run a weekly board or card game meet when all the shops are shut and any human interaction could lead to contracting a (potentially deadly) virus. In an effort to keep the magic alive, Wizards Of The Coast are running three…

Google Stadia is helping Bungie keep Destiny 2’s lights on during Covid-19

Google Stadia might still be struggling to find its place in people's living rooms. But for one studio's home offices, it's becoming an invaluable piece of tech. After Covid-19 hit their home state of Washington pretty hard, Destiny 2 developers Bungie have explained the beefy laptops and cloud streaming workarounds that aim to keep Guardians fighting while working from home.

Minecraft mod recreates the Earth to scale – and now it wants players to fill in the gaps

For as long as there's been Minecraft, there's been people who want to re-create the world in Minecraft. For one modder, though, it's not enough to have a to-scale replica of our pale blue dot recreated in Mojang's block-builder. A new project named Build The Earth is looking for talented builders with too much time on their hands, bringing them together to fully recreate every…

Predator: Hunting Grounds opens up for a free weekend of murder

The killing fields are open, team. Predator: Hunting Grounds's free weekend kicked off last night, letting you skulk about a lush open forest full of heavily-armed soldiers, super-powered alien mercenaries, and enough mud to give Hollywood's favourite muscle-man a mud bath three-times over - all without spending a penny.

Holedown’s planet-breaking worms slither towards PC with local co-op

Bouncy mobile block-buster Holedown is worming its way onto Steam. Following brilliant, abstract kinda-sorta-RTS Rymdkapsel, Swedish developer Martin "Grapefrukt" Jonasson's 2018 puzzler is a deceptively smart little gem that has you shattering planets at the behest of an ever-present communist worm. Two years later, the worm's domain is spreading to PC - and this time, you can bring a friend.

Last Oasis’s walking wooden forts drift into early access

Oh, to float above the battlefield on a balsa-wood centipede. On many levels, survival MMO Last Oasis is nothing new - a world where humanity is back at the beginning, feuding tribes fighting over scarce resources. Only, Last Oasis imagines a world where the sole survivors of a devastating meteor-strike are artisan woodcarvers, fighting on the back of fantastical mechanical timber contraptions. That's one hell…

Zombies, demons and... music? This week's free rotation on the Epic Games Store is an odd mix-up, that's for sure. You know the drill by now - from today until next Thursday, World War Z, Tormentor X Punisher and Figment are free to keep forever over on Epic.

Hack n’ slash shooter Bright Memory leaps out of early access

Breaking onto Steam last year, Bright Memory looked impressive enough. A slick, sci-fi FPS that bridged a gap between Shadow Warrior and Devil May Cry with some serious technical chops. Coupled with the fact that the game was seemingly the work of a sole developer, one-man studio FYQD, and you've got an impressive piece of work on your hands. After an overwhelming start on early…

Elite Dangerous’ massive Fleet Carriers may finally take off in June

When you think about it, two years is a remarkably short timeframe for building a spaceship. Once scheduled for liftoff in 2018, Elite Dangerous' long-awaited fleet carriers are finally, almost, just about ready to take to the stars. Today, Frontier announced plans for beta sessions in the coming months, scheduled a full video deep-dive on April 2nd, and revealed just how much a nation-sized supercarrier…

World of Warcraft is doubling all XP gains to keep its players indoors

We all get those urges from time to time. You're stuck at home, the PC's right there. Surely it's time to start up another World of Warcraft character, right? Unfortunately, that temptation might be harder to resist this month. As an incentive for staying indoors and infection-free, Blizzard have let loose the Winds of Wison, an 100% experience boost for every Azerothian adventurer 'til April…

Screenshot Saturday Sundays! Our weekly check-in with the weird and wild world of computer game development.

Session’s new co-op film mode lets you create radical home movies

Like Skate before it, Session wants to look like a proper old-school skater tape. Wide-angle handheld films, packed with stoner teens busting shins on concrete stairs for fifteen minutes 'til one finally nails a gravity-defying line. This week's update for the early-access skate sim brings that lineage full-circle, letting you drag along a friend to film your sickest tricks - or, more likely, your most…

Stock Jump turns economic collapse into sick ski tricks

The world's not looking good these days. Economically, as much as anything else. Across the board, stocks are in freefall thanks to Covid-19 keeping potential customers and workers indoors in self-isolation. If there's a silver lining, it's that all those jagged downward trends look a little bit like ski slopes if you squint hard enough. Enter Stock Jump - a free little browser game about…
