Together, they're polishing up the original Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn, along with its alt-history cousin C&C: Red Alert, plus all expansions for both games. Preempting the…

Fallout 76: Postcards from West Virginia

Over the course of my six or so hours with it so far, Fallout 76 has revealed its certainly a game that's more fun for what you see and come across than for how you act and what you do. It's lucky that the world itself, a bruised edition of West Virginia, is beautiful, putting Bethesda’s previous post-apocalyptic sets to shame in both its overall…

Fighting EX Layer takes a cheap swing at PC later this month

One more fighter steps into the ring this November 30th, and cheaper than expected - Arika's Fighting EX Layer, spun off from the oddball Street Fighter EX series. Starring the returning, colourful and non-Capcom-owned cast of Street Fighter EX (plus a guest appearance from King Of Fighters's Terry Bogard) it's a fast and twitchy arcade fighter, and a good one at that. Originally released on…

This War Of Mine expansion The Last Broadcast is out now

They say truth is the first casualty of war, which makes This War Of Mine's latest expansion - The Last Broadcast - equivalent to playing on hard mode. Not only do you have to cope with the usual dangers of keeping a band of civilians alive and safe through a brutal, messy war, but this expansion has players riding the razor's edge - uncovering and…

Free-to-play MMO museum manager Occupy White Walls enters early access

There's an odd appeal to constructing and decorating your own little space in an MMO - Occupy White Walls takes that concept, builds on it and discards all else. Released into early access today by Stiki Pixels, it's a free-to-play (entirely so at present) creative sandbox with an artistic focus. Players construct, light and decorate your own little art galleries, choose what pieces to display,…

Battle of the burg: Fortnite launches Food Fight event mode

Burgers or pizza? It's a question which has started playground debates, late-night arguments, and surely a fistfight or two. Fortnite Battle Royale aims to settle the question via the medium of digital megaviolence in a new event mode, Food Fight, where two teams of 12 with burgheads or tomatofaces must defend their hallowed restaurant mascot from enemy heretics. Yes, you really will need to get…

Fallout 76 fell down, but got back up

After Fallout 76 launched early, it did fall down (76). In the wee hours of today, following its 'official' launch at midnight worldwide, Bethesda's post-apocalyptic multiplayer sandbox experienced a bit of server meltdown, causing disconnection problems for some players. Oh sure, maybe you can survive the irradiated wastelands and the griefers trying to nuke your base, but you can't run from technical issues. Thankfully, Bethesda…

Shadow Of The Tomb Raider’s first co-op DLC tomb, The Forge, is out now

If there's one thing better than looting the artefacts of ancient, forgotten civilisations for personal gain, it's doing it with a friend. Today, the first of seven planned DLC tombs for Shadow Of The Tomb Raider was released. The Forge is a lava-filled, puzzle-heavy delve, and designed for play either solo or in the newly introduced online co-op mode. Lara can now tag along with…

Crusader Kings 2 expansion Holy Fury is out now

It feels only right that the biggest expansion for historical simulator Crusader Kings 2 adds the option to simulate alternate worlds's histories, too. Released today, Holy Fury was initially billed as an expansion to the religious systems of the game. While that is part of the package, even Paradox's own focus has shifted to the expansion's potential to generate endless earths. While the geography may…

Bam! Bif! Pow! Hitman 2 out now

Ian Hitman is back once again with the kill behaviour in Hitman 2, which just launched. The sandbox stealth-o-murder simulator visits new lands, does new murders in new ways, and generally does that Hitman stuff well. Adam Cook said in our Hitman 2 review that "although IO's latest take on their murder-sim doesn't veer too far from the previous game's reinvention, it spends time re-enforcing…

Dreamfall Chapters devs reveal Norwegian mystery Draugen

"We first announced Draugen in 2013--perhaps, in retrospect, a bit premature--with a highly optimistic release date of 2015," writer and creative director Ragnar Tørnquist (of The Longest Journey and The Secret World fame) said today. "This obviously didn't pan out quite as expected." It did not. However, Red Thread Games are now confident that the first-person explore-o-mystery 'em up set in a 1920s Norwegian coastal…

5… 4… 3… oh frig it, Fallout 76 launched early

Almost as if they know we are celebrating Apocalypse Day on RPS and they want in, Bethesda seem to have released Fallout 76 earlier than planned. The game's due to launch at midnight--at your midnight, wherever you are--so it is meant to already be live in some places but players from Europe and North America are reporting they're in now too. While the nights are…

Pattern is a pleasing endless walking simulator

This morning I've had a pleasant potter in Pattern, over hills, through forests, and along beaches, passing giant stone heads, oversized apples, derelict towers, and antennae. It journeys endlessly across procedurally-generated lands, dotted with occasional oddities, with dreamy generative music to wrap us in the world. Pattern has a public beta out now, which is what I've been playing, with a full release due to…

Kingdom Two Crowns starts cooperative lording in December

Slimline side-scrolling strategy series Kingdom will continue with couch co-op in Kingdom Two Crowns on December 11th, publishers Raw Fury have announced. I've quite enjoyed the Kingdom games but always bailed when it got frustrating towards the end, so it might be nice to have a pal by my side spurring me on. Two Crowns will also jaunt off to a second land, a kingdom…

Horror game Lost In Vivo undergoes a midnight metamorphosis

All screenshots courtesy of Dillon Rogers. Lost In Vivo is a first-person horror game launched last month by Akuma Kira and clearly influenced by Silent Hill. You explore dark tunnels, solve puzzles, fight strange creatures and search for your missing dog. That's spooky enough by itself, but last night Gloomwood developer Dillon Rogers and Dusk developer David Szymanski got more than they bargained for - quite…
