Here are all the confirmed ray tracing and DLSS games so far

Ray tracing is the big buzz word of 2020 in PC gaming, so we've created this list of all the confirmed ray tracing games you can play on PC right now, as well which this year's new PC games will get ray tracing support in the future. And because ray tracing tends to go hand in hand with Nvidia's performance-boosting DLSS tech these days, we've…

The 9 stompiest mechs in PC games

Mech love, not war. That is the lesson we must learn from the futuristic prophecies of the MechWarrior games. Yes, it is very noble to slam your big steel shoes upon a separatist’s bedroom, and to laser him in the head. But would it not bring greater valour, greater unity, greater enlightenment, if those same 65-ton brogues were used … to dance! No. Here is…

MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries review

I was not sold at first. The opening two hours of MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries are, well, they're fine. Standard tutorials, taking you through the controls and basic concepts, plus some entirely standard "oh no the baddies killed the man, grr" plot business. I was wary, fearing it would be a forgettable linear fairground ride about Corporal Jack Magnum (I honestly can't remember my character's name)…

MechWarrior 5 Mercenaries mechs guide

With so many Mechs in MechWarrior 5, it can be daunting for new players to know which ones are the best to take and which are the best to sell. The four different weight classes have their own play styles based on their armour, weapon variety, and speed. Some Mechs are also just flat out better or worse than others, so it's worth knowing in…

MechWarrior 5 guide – 25 tips that beginners need to know

It's been 20 years since the last MechWarrior game hit store shelves. So much has changed since that time. We now primarily use WSAD keys to move in shooters, while USB powered control pads have become more commonplace than joysticks. It's very likely then that you'll either be coming back to MechWarrior after years away from the series, or are discovering it for the first…

MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries trailer finally gives us some smashing spreadsheets

There are less than three weeks left 'til Father Battlemech's big steel arse comes down the chimney, kids. A mere two decades after Mechwarrior 4 left off, Mechwarrior 5: Mercenaries arrives next month. While there's plenty of big robot fights to look forward to, developers Pirhana Games released a new trailer showing off what would-be space pirates will be doing all that smashing and crashing.…

MechWarrior 5 delayed to December, confined to Epic Store

After a decade of waiting, a delay of another three months for MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries is but a blink of the eye. Wait! Don't blink just ye- aw for. Now you've done it. You've blinked a fly into your eye and now its six legs are tickling your sclera and its wings buzzing against your eyelid. You'll be fine once it's out, I'm sure, but…

MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries shows off four-player co-op

We still have 997 years to go until we're stomping around inside honking great mechs in the style of MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries, but we don't have to way quiiite as long for the simulation of our future by Piranha Games, makers of the free-to-play MechWarrior Online. Yesterday they announced MW5 is due to finally launch on September 10th, 2019 - a good ten years after…

MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries delayed until 2019

MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries and BattleTech launching in the same year was obviously just too much mech for this world. The latter came out in April, giving us control over a bunch of planet-hopping mercs, but its first-person cousin, originally slated for December this year, is now stomp stomp stomping its way into 2019.

MechWarrior 5 would like to show you how much you get to smash

The summer of Mech, they'll call this in years to come, when they've stopped caring about strict definitions of when a season is. Later this month we get Harebrained Schemes' healthily-Kickstarted XCOM-meets-Mechwarrior affair Battletech, and then towards the end of 2018 we return to a first-person, real-time view of that big, stompy world, with MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries. It's a bit of an unknown quantity right…
