Overkill’s Walking Dead game gets four character trailers

With the final season of Telltale's The Walking Dead kicking off soon, there's no shortage of good interactive experiences from that fictional universe. Hell, I'm impressed if you've managed to stay caught up. I'm pretty sure I've still got at least half a season in my cue, just like the show itself. Meanwhile, serving as the Fear The Walking Dead to Telltale's series, there's the…

Those naughty Nazis are back and being murdered to bits in Raid: World War II [official site], a new cooperative shooter being published by Payday 2 publishers Starbreeze Studios. The four-player stealth-o-shooter will send goodies to rob, sabotage, and murder the baddies, leaving mayhem and destruction in their wake. It's meant to be similar-ish to Payday 2.

Dead by Daylight DLC adds shock doc and e-sports pro

Every Friday the 13th is bone-chilling, of course, but people expect it now. If you want to really surprise and scare someone, release a spooky murderdoctor on, say, Thursday the 11th. BOO! That's exactly what Dead by Daylight [official site] has done, today launching DLC adding a new wacky doctor to the 1v4 horrorshow and a new victim/survivor. He was a torturer, she was an…

Starbreeze Launch IndieLabs Label With AntiSphere

It is increasingly misleading to refer to Riddick developers Starbreeze Studios as 'Riddick developers Starbreeze Studios'. It became awkward when they bought Payday devs Overkill Software, then they made the jolly surprising Brothers, they got into publishing, and I always want to highlight/defend Syndicate's co-op, and... now they have launched a new publishing label. Starbreeze IndieLabs, as you might guess from the name, will fund…

Dead By Daylight Gets Halloweenie In New DLC

Ol' Shatface himself, Michael Myers, is now up to his usual tricks - leering at teens, following them muttering "I'm not touching you. Is this bugging you? I'm not touching you.", then stabbing them through the neck - Dead by Daylight [official site]. The iconic murderman from John Carpenter's Halloween has arrived in the 4v1 multiplayer horrorshow's first big DLC as a new killer, bringing…

Dead By Daylight Gets ’80s Clobber In First Paid DLC

Am I the only one who feels mocked by Millennials? While I work hard to pay for my car and house, Millennials swan around taking selfies and buying vintage clothes. Hey, I know you're thousands of years old, but could you at least pretend our lives are more than a blink of an eye to you? Must you disrespect all the pitiful idols we cling…

Dead By Daylight Plans Parties, New Killers, New Maps

Dead by Daylight [official site] has lurched up the Steam charts with its 1v4, horror movie killer vs. plucky teens, multiplayer action. Basically, a supernatural slasher tries to sacrifice teens to dark gods by hanging them from meat hooks, while the teens try to evade the killer while they fix generators so they can escape. From what I've seen, it looks like a lark with…

Dead By Daylight Bringing 4v1 Slasher Horror To June

The last time Behaviour Interactive tried to make a psycho killer (qu'est-ce que c'est?) game, they ended up with Naughty Bear. Ohhh dear. Two of 'em! This time, they're going for classic horror movie slashing in Dead by Daylight [official site]. It's a 4v1 multiplayer game about hapless teens trying to escape the murderous clutches of killers with bear traps, big knives, meat hooks, and…

Starbreeze Making Co-op FPS Based On F2P CrossFire

Starbreeze Studios, makers of the Riddick FPS and owners of Payday devs Overkill, have announced a new co-op FPS based on Smilegate's F2P mega-hit CrossFire (pictured above). How big a hit? Up to six million players online at once big. I'm familiar with South Korean developers making free-to-play versions of western FPS--and still fascinated by Counter-Strike Nexon Zombies--but can't think of many times it's gone…

Payday 2 And Goat Simulator Swap Goofy Crossover DLC

Checks calendar. Okay, it's not April 1. Checks Steam. There's definitely a store page for it. I guess this is really happening. The latest Payday 2 [official site] heist is themed around...Goat Simulator. And the latest Goat Simulator [official site] DLC is themed around... Payday 2.

Payday 2 Gets Point Break Remake Tie-In DLC

Since launch, Payday 2 [official site] has received a staggering 39 different bits of DLC that range, from festive soundtracks to cross-promotional movie-game tie ins. John Wick joined the co-op crime FPS last year, and now it's going a bit Point Break. Overkill have teamed up with Warner Bros. to add things loosely inspired by the upcoming remake (no, not the 1991 Patrick Swayze-starring original)…

StarVR: Starbreeze Get Into Cybergoggles

Folks have been gushing and gasping (and grumbling, in my case) for years about the coming virtual reality revolution, but it's all about to kick off. Valve's Vive is due later this year, Oculus have revealed the Rift consumer model that'll launch in early 2016, and Microsoft's augmented reality HoloLens will follow Windows 10. Starbreeze Studios want in. The company behind Brothers, Syndicate, and (through…

PaydayZ: Overkill’s Walking Dead Co-op FPS

Don't blame the zombie. Look at 'im! That brainless schlub isn't responsible for the shoddy games he's often found in. He's a symptom, not the cause. You know what, I think I might even enjoy murdering the li'l fella. Zombies be damned, I'm looking forward to Payday creators Overkill's new game--a co-op FPS based on The Walking Dead--because it's a co-op FPS made by Overkill.…

That Riddick Game Diesel Teased? An iOS Movie Tie-In

Update:┬áI sought clarification from Gaming Corps about Vin Diesel's comment, further games in the Riddick series, and whether or not PC will be involved, and CEO┬áNicklas Dunham replied with the following: "At the moment we can only disclose that the iOS version is just the beginning." So there's more to come, but it's still far too early to determine the exact form it will take.…

Diesel Powered: New Chronicles Of Riddick, Maybe MMO?

I've not seen the third Riddick movie yet, but oh boy do I plan to. Obviously Pitch Black is a great action movie - how could anyone question a film with the opening line, "They say most of your brain shuts down in cryo-sleep. All but the primitive side, the animal side. No wonder I'm still awake,"? But then comes The Chronicles Of Riddick -…

Family Gathering: Brothers – A Tale Of Two Sons

I'm not sure if any of the RPS crew have played Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons yet, but it's out today and sounds like it'd be the ideal interactive experience for at least a couple of us. It's a character-driven, single player co-op game, and I'm not sure what either of those things mean. 'Character-driven' because it's about the brothers and their encounters with…

Brothers: A Tale Of Two Sons PC Bound

I'd like to think that Starbreeze's self-co-operation game Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons came into being when Creative director Josef Fares looked at a modern game controller. He held it in his hand, probably while wearing protective gloves, and spotted the symmetry between the d-pad and the four face buttons. Then he shouted "eureka", and ran around the offices showing it to everyone. Work…

Heist Master’s Voice: Payday 2 Footage

Nature seeks balance. That is the way of things. So it was that following news of a police procedural game (coming soon), I was also told of more footage of Payday 2, which is Overkill's heist 'em up. Below there are 24 minutes of developer narrated action of the co-op shooter as they take part in an art heist. Then follows the inevitable betrayal. They…
