Humble are stuffing stockings with free Lego The Hobbitses today

It's a good day for free stuff - the second giveaway of the day is Lego The Hobbit. While not the greatest of Traveller's Tales's sprawling list of film-to-virtual-plastic adaptations, it's a decent way to distract the kids, or yourself if you're young at heart. Based on just the first two films, it's a platformy action-adventure with local co-op and tongue firmly in cheek. Blocky…

Book Of Demons emerges from the crypts of early access today

Book Of Demons wears its inspirations on its book-sleeve. Leaving early access after two and a half years of testing and updates, developers Thing Trunk have wrapped a cute papercraft aesthetic around this clear Diablo tribute. It's an unusual little dungeon crawler - feeling a bit like a real-time version of Card Hunter, it's more about planning and careful use of abilities than other ARPGs.…

Hytale is a blocky sandbox RPG spawned from a massive Minecraft server

With aid and investment from League Of Legends studio Riot, Hypixel Studios - the folks behind the massive Hypixel Minecraft server - have just announced Hytale, their secret project of the past three years. Unsurprisingly, it's a block-building sandbox, but with a bit more of an RPG focus as its core module. Building on what Hypixel liked so much with Minecraft, Hytale will support community…

Nvidia’s performance-boosting DLSS tech finally arrives in Final Fantasy XV, but…

It's one of…

Danganronpa dev’s dungeon RPG Zanki Zero launches March

Zanki Zero: Last Beginning's strangely picturesque apocalypse and oddball cast sent to their repeated ends feels fitting as a followup to teen murder mystery-fest Danganronpa. Confirmed for a PC launch on March 19th, Spike Chunsoft are putting their spin on Wizardry and The Legend Of Grimrock-style real-time labyrinth RPGs. Danganronpa 2 director Yakauki Sugawara and series producer Yoshinori Terasawa are at the helm, so expect…

League Of Legends dropping Windows XP and Vista in 2019

Microsoft pulled the plug on Windows XP and Vista years ago, but the vintage operating systems have still been supported by an ever-dwindling number of games - a number which will dwindle further when League Of Legends ditches them in 2019. Part of what made the MOBA a mega-hit was that it can on pretty much any PC built in the past 15 years, but…

The Banner Saga 3 fights forever in Eternal Arena DLC

Yesterday they launched the turn-based tactical RPG's Eternal Arena DLC, letting players fight on and on in customisable sandbox battles. All the game's heroes, villains, and maps are yours to toy with, and it has a weekly challenge with leaderboards too. Eternal Arena is probably…

Fortnite’s Infinity Blade homage has hacked off the fun

After pulling the plug on their Infinity Blade series of mobile action-RPGs this week, Epic added the eponymous sword to Fortnite Battle Royale - and now Fortnite players are upset about Infinity Blade too. Only one supersword is available on the whole map but whoever pulls it from the stone atop an icy mountain will go on to wreck faces. Cleaving bone and brick alike…

Ashen’s wonky multiplayer has been un-wonked

If you've been struggling to hook up with ghost pals in newfangled Soulsian RPG Ashen, you should give your dating profile an overhaul.

Foxhole’s persistent battlefields get a major overhaul today

Strategic MMO shooter Foxhole is an interesting beast. Clapfoot's isometric multiplayer warzone is equal parts Running With Rifles and World War 2 Online, with hundreds of players (over a thousand at peak) sharing a persistent battlefield over the course of weeks. It's been in early access for a while, but today's update - Foundation Of War - is the biggest change yet for it. On top…

Unheard’s “Acoustic Detectives” are great listeners

They say that justice is blind, but it's just the detectives in Unheard, a recently announced "audio driven detective game" from NEXT Studios. Looking a bit like a 2D take on Return of The Obra Dinn with a dash of nineties psychic detective TV, players are out to solve a series of seemingly unrelated but linked crimes by listening in on the past. Unlike Obra Dinn,…

Insurgency: Sandstorm is out now

Joining the crowded ranks of tactical shooters set in the eternal desert war that has dominated this generation, Insurgency: Sandstorm is out now. New World Interactive's team shooter aims to be realistic without being pointlessly fiddly. Realistic ballistics and some complex reloading mechanics are backed up by simple controls and twitchy, responsive movement. Plus, if you're not into Counter-Strike or Battlefield-inspired competitive play (there's maps…

Street Fighter V adds adverts

Capcom have added in-game adverts to Street Fighter V, slapping logos onto characters' costumes, loading screens, and arenas. These ads are optional, are currently only for in-game content and Capcom's own Pro Tour digital sports circuit, and do offer players a little in-game cash for having them enabled. They also look daft as all heck, covering characters in ugly and incongruous logos, and are an…

ZeniMax and Facebook settle Oculus legal battle

Over four years in the making, ZeniMax Media's legal rumble with Oculus and Facebook over Oculus Rift VR cybergoggles has finally ended in a settlement. They had gone through the courts, where a jury initially ruled that Facebook owed ZeniMax $500 million dollars, then a judge later reduced that, and the bickering continued. Their related battle with John Carmack ended in October, and now the…

Warframe players refuse to let Fortuna instance number 69 end

A group of hardcore number fans have kept Warframe's Fortuna 69 instance alive for over a month now, and developers Digital Extremes are lending a hand. Instance 69 of the Fortuna hub area has become a bit of a party zone with dedicated digitheads loitering round the clock to prevent the free-to-play action-RPG's server instance from automatically shutting down. Digital Extremes even guided players through…

Mountain makeover in MOUNTAIIN 2 FURIOUS 2.0 RELOADED

Delightful and contemplative pet rock simulator Mountain is looking better than ever in version 2.0, launched yesterday. David OReilly and co. have added new mountain types with new flora, new clouds, HDR rendering, new special effects, new clutter to rain down from space upon the mountain, and other general fanciness. "MOUNTAIIN 2 FURIOUS 2.0 RELOADED", OReilly jokes, and I'm on board with that. I particularly…
