World War Z sprints towards an April 16th launch

Just when we thought it was safe, the tide of zombie games returns with renewed ferocity. At least with World War Z, now confirmed for an April 16th launch with a lower-than-average price, looks like Saber Interactive are doing something a bit different. Loosely tied to the Brad Pitt movie and even more loosely to Max Brooks's original book, it's a class-based, mostly co-op shooter.…

Battlerite Royale gets launch trailer ahead of its free-to-play release next week

Battlerite Royale is exactly what it sounds like – a BR spinoff of the MOBA Battlerite – and it’ll be launching out of early access and into free-to-play next Tuesday, the 19th of February. With one or two other free-to-play battle royales floating around at the moment, developers Stunlock Studios will be hoping their arena brawler origins are enough to set them apart. If you’ve…

Apex Legends players are becoming cryptid hunters

Players who have been parachuting into free-to-play battle royale Apex Legends (Apelegs? Have we committed one way or the other on Apelegs yet?) have stumbled on something cute – a small plushie version of Nessie, hanging out in the water near Cascades. Nessie may be hiding more secrets though, the devs have teased, leading to a fully fledged manhunt for the elusive cryptids.

Competitive Tennis World Tour will take place alongside this summer’s French Open

Tennis World Tour esports is back for a second year, in the form of the Roland-Garros eSeries by BNP Paribas. It’s quite a name for a tournament - not only does it not really roll off the tongue, but I also spy a rogue capital S. This is especially interesting since the PR email I received says “e-sports,” with a small s but a wayward…

Buy Jumpgrid today, loathe shapes for the rest of your life

Right. Let's skip the quips, and leap directly into why you should buy Jumpgrid. It's a hyper-alluring shape-dodger vaguely in the vain of Super Hexagon, where death comes fast and respawns come faster. Each level is a three by three grid that somehow still leaves room for varied approaches, drawing on reflex and strategy both. It's out right now, and only costs £4.

Ubisoft show off the outback in Operation Burnt Horizon trailer

G’day! Ubisoft have unveiled the new Rainbow Six Siege map they were teasing last week, and it’s Australia alright: kangaroos, didgeridoo music, and yet more kangaroos. Oh, and a massive shark, suspended from the ceiling, as you do. No koalas, though, which is a disappointment. Still, you can see it all for yourself in the trailer below.

System Shock 3 returns to OtherSide after Starbreeze sell publishing rights

Troubled publisher Starbreeze won't be associated with the upcoming System Shock 3 anymore, as they've sold the rights to the game back to developers OtherSide Entertainment. The publisher have announced that "Starbreeze fully expects to be reimbursed for costs the company has had in connection with the development of the game". Both companies have had their share of trouble recently, with Starbreeze filing for administration…

Redo! sneaks into the dusty tunnels of early access

Ever since playing an early prototype, I've been looking forward to today's launch of Redo!. It's an aggressively bleak metroidvania about a lone woman attempting to survive and maybe even find another human after an apocalyptic robot rebellion. Combat is panicky, weapons feel insufficient, and the machines themselves are strange, twisted and exceptionally deadly. The early access launch is effectively complete, with solo developer Robson…

IGF nominated puzzle game Ethereal sets March release date

Pretty puzzle game Ethereal will be wiggling its way into stores on the 7th of March. The wordless game follows an indistinct blob through many colourful, chilled out levels, and it's up for a 2019 Independent Games Festival award for excellence in audio. You'll be able to see why it was nominated from the trailer alone:

The Textorcist teaches combat typing skills in a pre-launch demo

I consider myself a decent typist, and better yet at dodging bullets in shmups. Today's demo for The Textorcist: The Story of Ray Bibbia taught me a painful lesson: I am ill-equipped to do both at once. Due out on this week on February 14th, players control exorcist-for-hire Ray Bibbia with the arrow keys, dodging bullets as you would in any bullet hell shmup. Unlike…

Doom II mod Eviternity teaches everything to know about demon slaying

Doom 2 is more than just Doom these days. Some modern levels for the 90s classic FPS feature thousands of enemies, fiendish traps and difficulty beyond anything Id Software dreamt of. Eviternity, released yesterday, runs the gamut. It's a 32-level campaign split up into six five-map episodes, each with a fresh look and some new monsters. You'll start out in gloomy gothic tunnels, plinking away at…

One Finger Death Punch 2 hits April with a demo out now

You can kill a stickman ten thousand ways using just two buttons in One Finger Death Punch 2. Sequel to Silver Dollar's original manic pseudo-brawler, you can try it for yourself now before it lands on April 15th. Baddies approach from either side - when they're within range, a left click strikes the target on the left, and a right click strikes the target on…

Star Citizen is adding American Sign Language emotes

Crowdfunding bonanza and space simulator Star Citizen has announced some new emotes aimed at Deaf and hard of hearing players. The American Sign Language (ASL) animations include all the typical fare you might come across in an online video game, like “hello,” “thank you,” and “bullshit.” Animator Steve Bender describes the idea, and shows off a few of the emotes, in the video below:

Yep, it looks like the GTX 1660 Ti is definitely a thing that’s happening

After the spilling of some official presentation slide beans at the end of January, it would appear the Nvidia GTX 1660 Ti is very much on its way after a swathe of retail boxes have been spotted in the wild. Packed with Nvidia's next-gen Turing GPU but allegedly no ray tracing support, the current rumour mill pegs the release of the GTX 1660 Ti as…

Starxium 20XX is a drive ’em up with interesting ideas and a lovely sun

It's appropriate that Starxium 20XX caught my eye with one of the best suns in videogames. Just look at that dappled opalescence, shining down on a Tron-style multiplayer driving game where special abilities are charged by doing cool stunts. I've played a little of a super-early prototype that you can nab for free, and it's every bit as soothing as it looks.

Bethesda confirm Fallout 76’s Vault 63 will eventually open its doors after player glitches inside

Vaults have long been one of the more interesting areas to explore in Fallout games, allowing players to unravel the sinister experiments forced upon their unwitting inhabitants. Fallout 4’s Vault 111 put people into cryogenic sleep, whereas the residents of the eponymous Vault 76 were simply spat out into the wasteland after 25 short years - but what about Vault 63? It makes an appearance…

Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines follow-up teased by Paradox with ARG

Either Paradox, who these days own Vampire: The Masquerade & World of Darkness publisher White Wolf, are getting into the Netflix & Chill game, or they're they're gearing up to reveal a long-awaited follow-up to the legendary Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines. They've come up with Tender, ostensibly a dating site. Whose metadata just so happens to read "Whether you’re looking for meaningful friendships, true love…

Apex Legends ping tool was tested by making everyone silent strangers

I've only played a few rounds of new free-to-play battle royale Apex Legends, but in every match I've been amazed at how closely my team of perfect strangers worked together. Not a single word shared in text or voice chat, but between automated character chatter, a helpful UI and liberal use of the ping tool kept it together until late into the game. To achieve…
