Survival sandbox Scum adds rude gestures, cave networks and human skin masks

Scum may be detailed enough to let you urinate or even defecate on your foes, but that requires you to be up close. A raised middle finger? Well, that's your new ranged option for offensive offending. In today's early access update, prisoners attempting to survive the zombie and robot-infested hell that is Gamepires's Scum have a few new options. These include hiding in caves, making…

Feature: Now updated with even more ray-tracing and DLSS-confirmed games

Here’s a list of every game that’s going to look amazing on the Nvidia RTX 2080 and 2080Ti

Last week, the first of three shiny new Nvidia Turing cards finally pitched up on shop shelves - the RTX 2080. You can head over to my Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 review to find out more on what I thought of the card as a general pixel pusher, but the long and short of it is that you're probably not looking at much of a…

Come watch RPS become streaming superstars at EGX 2018

Feature: Shadow Of Their Former Self Charts

Steam Charts: Reshuffle Edition

Take last week's Steam Charts, give them a little shuffle, and then breathe out a long, despondent sigh. Oh, and then entirely randomly add an Early Access racing sim. And then start sighing again, and never, ever stop.

Feature: Health kick

Premature Evaluation: Scum

Premature Evaluation is the weekly column in which we explore the wilds of early access. This week, Fraser’s trying to lead a healthier, happier life in Scum, the multiplayer survival sim. Scum’s wall of data is mesmerising. From the moment I arrived on the island, every spare second, and even seconds I couldn’t spare, was dedicated to staring at it. The readings and statistics told…

Feature: New Entry Bonanza!

Steam Charts: Crikey! Edition

I imagine in direct response to all my moaning insightful criticism, everyone in the world has upped their game and started buying some more interesting games from Steam. Such that this week's Steam Charts, with an extraordinary four new entries, barely resembles those of the last couple of months! Hurrah! And you clickbait won't believe clickbait where Playerunknown's Battlegrounds falls this week! CLICKBAIT!

Scum adds anti-cheat to fight the real scum

It's always galling to be murdered when you're on the pot, but doubly so when killed by a cheater. The 'DayZ but with robots and pooing' survival sandbox Scum has (hopefully?) solved that shitty problem over the weekend by adding anti-cheat tech, which is a feature I'm honestly surprised to hear a high-profile murderous multiplayer game had launched without. Known cheats for Scum included an…

Survival sandbox Scum enters early access and looks a lot like DayZ

Survival sandbox Scum may boast astonishingly detailed health management systems (shown above) but under that veneer of hyper-complexity beats a familiar heart. Published by Devolver Digital and entering early access today, Scum resembles zombie survive 'em up DayZ, brief source of zeitgeist before battle royale shooters took over. Set in a massive open-air prison, up to 64 players per server try to feed, clothe and…

Devolver’s survival sandbox Scum enters early access August 29th

Devolver Digital's whole brand is edgy nostalgia but it is weird they're casting a misty-eyed gaze back to the distant year of 2012, when "Friendly!" shouts in DayZ were the sound of the summer, with multiplayer online survival murder sandbox Scum. We'll get to relive those halcyon days soon, as Devolver have announced an early access launch date of August 29th. Prepare to once again…

Devolver Announce Scum, Croteam’s Survive ‘Em Up

Devolver Digital, the publishers of such brash games as Hotline Miami and Broforce, have announced that they're publishing Scum [official site], a multiplayer open-world survival game headed to Steam Early Access in 2017. That doesn't seem like Devolver's style, given that they've traditionally blazed their own path and inspired imitators rather than the other way around, but hey! There's an edgy twist, of course: you…
