Cyberpunk 2077 augments its team with Dying Light’s PvP crew

CD Projekt Red today announced an interesting partnership today with small studio Digital Scapes, with initial plans for them to work on upcoming mega-budget immersive sim Cyberpunk 2077. Digital Scapes recently made some waves through their work on Dying Light's surprisingly entertaining asymmetrical PvP mode while Techland focused on the single-player side of the game. Tempting as that sounds, the announcement says that Digital Scapes…

Podcast: What game has the most satisfying kick?

 Can you kick it? Yes, you can. Can you punt a ram? Yes, you can. Can you listen to the RPS podcast, aka the Electronic Wireless Show, as they talk about the best kicks in videogames? Yes, I already told you, of course you can. From the powerful hoof of Kassandra in the new Assassin’s Creed Odyssey to the zombie-launching boot of Dying Light,…

Premature Evaluation – Dying Light: Bad Blood

The sound of an explosion and a huge burst of flame sends me sprinting for cover. The attack wasn’t directed at me, it turns out. One of my fellow survivors had walked into a hive of zombies and he was chargrilling them. I stay hidden behind a van and watch him duke it out. We’re both after the same thing: blood samples that will allow…

Competitive zombie hunt Dying Light: Bad Blood drop-kicks into early access

Dying Light: Bad Blood is an odd beast - a volatile mutation, split from Techland's excellent zombie survival sandbox Dying Light. Twelve players roam the infested city of Harran, hunting for blood samples from pulsating zombie hives. Whoever fills up first gets a ride out of town. Competitive aspect and cringeworthy "brutal royale" designation aside, it looks very much like Dying Light, with familiar environments, enemies…

Steam Charts: Morbidly Repetitive Edition

Thank God you're here. Listen, I don't want to over-hype things, but this might be the most essential and life-changing article you ever read. Because if you only click through to read this, you will LITERALLY find out the top ten (nine) grossing games on Steam last week, and seriously, if you bought one of them, you will feel so bloody validated.

Dying Light: Bad Blood starts battling royale in September

Take twelve people who are good at jumping, drop them into a zombie-infested city, and turn them loose to loot, level up, and murder each other until one emerges triumphant. That's Dying Light: Bad Blood, an upcoming multiplayer standalone spin-off from Techland's parkour-o-zombsmashing shooter series. Y'know, it's a Battle Royale/Hunger Games-ish doodad, as is the style of the time. But on a smaller scale, and…

The 100 best-selling games on Steam in 2018 so far

We've just passed the half-way point of 2018, so Ian Gatekeeper and all his fabulously wealthy chums over at Valve have revealed which hundred games have sold best on Steam over the past six months. It's a list dominated by pre-2018 names, to be frank, a great many of which you'll be expected, but there are a few surprises in there. 2018 releases Jurassic World…

Podcast: The naughty games we weren’t allowed to play

Psst. I know mum said you weren’t allowed to listen to those hellions on your favourite podcast anymore, but the hosts of the Electronic Wireless Show won’t tell if you don’t. This week we’re talking about the games we weren’t allowed to play as youngsters, but did anyway. Alice suffered strict rationing of The Sims 2, and Dave (oh hello Dave) was looked at with…

Dying Light 2 announced, co-written by Chris Avellone

More first-person parkour-o-zombiemurder is coming from Techland in Dying Light 2, announced today at E3. Once again, we'll get to leap and fight through (and over) a zombie-infested city, run missions for people, and try to survive. Simply more Dying Light would be grand, but this sounds like it's going ambitious on the story front too, drafting Chris "The Human Stretch Goal" Avellone as a…

Feature: Update Night

Has Dying Light been improved by its updates?

Update Night is a fortnightly column in which Rich McCormick revisits games to find out whether they've been changed for better or worse. Dying Light’s zombies are spooky, groaning and flailing at me as I parkour my player character across awnings and rooftops, but in the brightness of day, they’re exposed. They’re slow — slow enough that they’ll never catch up with my sprinting hero —…

Dying Light’s free Prison Heist rewards speed with loot

Dying Light, like the best of zombies, keeps on picking itself up to take a bite out of my free time. Yesterday, Techland's cult hit zombie parkour sandbox was blessed with yet another chunky free content update, adding a lengthy new mission for 1-4 players set in Harran's zombie-and-soldier infested prison. Players still exploring the Old Town streets might also bump into a unique Demolisher zombie…

Dying Light celebrates three years of zombie parkour fun

The enduring success of Dying Light is a pleasant surprise. Nobody really expected too much of Techland's Dead Island spinoff, but the studio weathered a rough launch and continued to support the game through patches, free content updates and (eventually) a truly excellent expansion. Most other studios would be done with a game after the inevitable Definitive Goaty Edition, but late last year Techland renewed…

Podcast: Should survival games die?

No. Let's not be ridiculous. But there are so many examples of bad survival games that it’s important to remember the good ones. So that’s what we are doing on the latest RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show. We're breaking stones over the heads of rubbish survival games, but cooking, salting and eating the delicious ones. Adam wraps himself up in The Long Dark but…

These are the top 100 Steam games of 2017

Another year over, a new one just begun, which means, impossibly, even more games. But what about last year? Which were the games that most people were buying and, more importantly, playing? As is now something of a tradition, Valve have let slip a big ol' breakdown of the most successful titles released on Steam over the past twelve months. Below is the full, hundred-strong…

Dying Light: Bad Blood wants you to betray your friends

In the grim darkness of the near future, there is only Battle Royale. And things vaguely similar to Battle Royale. Dying Light is the latest game to announce news of such a mode. This one will be arriving in the form of a standalone expansion called Bad Blood and it actually sounds far more suited to the game than I initially suspected. That's mostly because…

Undead! Dying Light getting a year of free DLC

Though parkouring zombie-stabber Dying Light came out a good two years ago, developers Techland this week announced that they'll release ten free 'DLC' packs(/content updates) over the next year. How nice! Dying Light is still pretty popular, see, with its peak concurrent player count over 8,000 today on Steam alone. So! Techland are working on new enemies, areas, and other odds and ends to add…

Feature: 21 Of The Best 7/10 Games

In Celebration Of Perfectly Average Action Games

We don’t do scores on RPS, but sometimes we mourn for the inability to deploy a 7/10. The ur-score, the most double-edged of critical swords, the good but not great, the better than it deserves to be, the guilty pleasure, the bungled aspiration, the knows exactly what it is, the straight down the line. One score that can mean so much. There is one particular…
