Feature: Apex upon your house

Has Apex Legends been improved by its updates?

If Overwatch slash fiction existed [it obviously does - ed.], and there were posited romances between Junkrat and Roadhog [there are so many - ed.], then their lovechild [I believe that would be "mpreg" - ed.] would be Apex Legends’ newest character, Octane. Masked, shrieking, obsessed with goo and stimulants, and sprinting on two metal legs after an explosion stole his flesh ones, Octane looks…

Butt-slide Royale: Apex Legends and creative movement in shooters

I’m not sure anyone at Respawn has properly busted their ass on the curb. It hurts. The last time I cracked my rear off the concrete in a moment of skating hubris, I was limping for days. Fortunately for the fifty million folks flying around in Apex Legends, a billowing cushion of air has turned what should be an embarrassing accident into the most compelling…

Titanfall isn’t done yet says Respawn Entertainment CEO

Battle royale spin-off Apex Legends seems to be doing well, but it's good to know that there's more proper Titanfall still on the way. Titanfall 3 may officially not be on the cards, but according to this tweet from Respawn CEO Vince Zampella, there is something bearing the series name "for later in the year". Of course, this isn't confirmation of much beyond the continuation of…

Amazon Prime Day 2018: Best deals on PC games and hardware

This year's Amazon Prime Day is almost at an end. At midnight tonight, Amazon's big day o' deals will be over for another year (or, you know, until Black Friday in November), so if you had a look at the deals yesterday and thought, 'Hmm... I could do with a new SSD or graphics card', then you've still got time to pick one up. I know Amazon is…

Geralt may appear in Soul Calibur VI but here are the characters we really want

This is Brendan, broadcasting live from rumour world, where everything is made of a nebulous candy floss-like substance. The locals call it “hope.” Amid this sticky cloud, a figure has formed. It’s Geralt of Rivia, hero of popular Gwent spin-off, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The monster-hunting swordsman will “make an appearance” in another game later this year, according to CD Projekt Red community lead…

For today is Cyber Monday, the day that's reserved for purely online-only deals following the shopping bonanza that was Black Friday. This year, we've done the hard work…

EA is buying Titanfall creators Respawn

The earth-encrusted behemoth known as EA is buying robot-befriending studio Respawn Entertainment for as much as $455 million. The publisher is going to pay $315 million in stock and cash, and a further $140 million if the Titanfall creators hit their “incentive targets” - in other words, if the games they’re currently working on get an aesthetically pleasant arbitrary number on Metacritic when they're released.…

Have You Played… Titanfall 2?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. Titanfall 2 [official site] changes little of the parkour-and-mechs formula from the first game, but it employs that formula within a singleplayer mode for the first time. It's a brilliant level design showcase.

Titanfall 2’s War Games update adds new maps

Titanfall 2’s [official site] pilots need to be light on their feet, what with all the parkour, so it makes sense that they wouldn’t want to lug around lots of heavy weapons. But surely in the distant future humanity will discover a way to solve this problem? And it looks like they have, as the War Games update, along with introducing new maps and bunch…

Titanfall 2 adding two new maps free next week

Titanfall 2 pilots – you're in luck. The game's getting a free update next week (27 June) called The War Games, which adds two maps and a few new features. If that DLC title sounds familiar then that's because it's named after a map from the original Titanfall, War Games, which will now be available in the sequel. It's a simulated high-rise city where you…

Titanfall 2 launches new mode today, Live Fire

A new Titanfall 2 [official site] multiplayer mode, Live Fire, arrives today in a free update. Two teams of six have left their robot buddies at home for the day, and will scampering around on foot (and jets, and grapple lines) to shoot each other to pieces in one-minute rounds. Live Fire sounds pretty intense and fun, so I look forward to giving it a…

I know a lot of our gushing about our favourite FPS of 2016 has focused on its campaign but the multiplayer is cracking too. It doesn't hurt that all new multiplayer modes and modes are free. So yes, the new mode is named Live Fire…
