CCP cancel Project Nova, but haven’t given up on an EVE Online shooter

Another EVE Online spin-off has bitten the dust. Project Nova, CCP's latest attempt to put their expansive universe in front of the barrel of a rifle, has joined Dust 514 and EVE: Valkyrie on the intergalactic scrapheap. The devs haven't quite given up on a boots-on-the-ground galaxy entirely. They've still got a team down in London plugging away at that problem. But for all intents…

Skate Story is shredding an otherworldly line into oblivion

A wise man once said: "I will face God and walk backwards into hell". But why walk when you can tear through nine circles of damnation on four wheels and a solid deck? Skate Story, currently in development by indie developer Sam Eng, is skateboarding like I've never seen before. Gone are butt-rock anthems and Jackass-tier celebs. This is skateboarding for the supernatural, tearing a…

State of Decay 2 prepares for Steam with a Juggernaut overhaul

Like the shambling rotters it loves, State of Decay 2 is rising from its slumber once more.

Operation: Void Edge operators crash the Rainbow 6 test server tomorrow

Rainbow Six Siege is all about mind games. Baiting out attackers, creating false lines of attack, making sure the bad guys step into your crosshairs before you wander into theirs. Operation Void Edge's two new Operators hit the public test server tomorrow, and approach deceptive play with two radically different visions. One of them will trick you into seeing ghosts, and the other will have…

Quantic Dream are going indie, will self-publish future games

Long-time Sony mainstay Quantic Dream have gone fully independent. Thanks to the baffling success of Detroit: Become Human, last year's PC rereleases of their back catalogue, and a handy bit of investment from NetEase, the French devs will self-publish their own games for the first time in their 23-year history. That probably also means that whatever high-budget, self-important, definitely-not-allegorical tale is brewing behind those locked…

Nvidia’s “misunderstanding” led to Activision pulling their games from GeForce Now

Last week, Activision Blizzard's games mysteriously vanished from Nvidia's new streaming service. Well, you can put down your pipes and deerstalkers, detectives. Nvidia's come clean. There was some sort of misunderstanding, see, and it looks like the hardware firm forgot to get all the paperwork in order before putting the publishers' catalogue on GeForce Now.

Developers Crowbar Collective released a content-complete version 1.0 beta of the Half-Life remake on Steam earlier this week - an uninterrupted journey through Black Mesa's corridors and the Xen border world. Sixteen years after a group of dissatisfied modders sought to one-up Valve's Source port of Half-Life, Gordon Freeman's no good, very…

This Destiny 2 exploit is giving Warlocks endless flaming swords

Destiny 2 is having a pretty tough time with swords. Just as Bungie announce plans to rework bladed weapons entirely, a new problem emerges with swords of a more supernatural nature. Dawnblade-specced Warlocks have discovered a relatively simple exploit allowing them to burn through their super indefinitely, letting them spit flaming blades 'til the sun goes out. Brilliant, until you're facing four of them on…
