Lords Of The Fallen 2 drops new devs Defiant Studios

Despite the first game being a bit rubbish, publisher City Interactive Games are insistent on making Lords Of The Fallen 2 a thing. They've also booted recently-hired developers Defiant Studios from it just one year into production. As reported (and translated from Polish) by Eurogamer, the publisher announced via a press release that their partnership was being terminated over "inadequate execution by Defiant [of] a…

Sniper Ghost Warrior contracts with Contracts

After dreaming big Sniper Ghost Warrior 3, developers CI Games have decided that there's little practical difference between targets being far away or simply small, and accordingly announced Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts. After making a big fancy open-world in GW3, this time they're thinking smaller with- hang on, they mean contracts as a noun, not a verb. Ah. Well! They're still scaling down, talking about…

Lords Of The Fallen 2 finds a developer

Three years after City Interactive first muttered about a sequel to Lords Of The Fallen, 2014's Souls-tinged action-RPG, they're finally going ahead with it. Today they announced they've drafted Defiant Studios, a new studio co-founded by the director of Just Cause 3, to make Lords Of The Fallen 2. Lords creators Deck13 parted ways with CI after the first game, see, going on to continue…

Ambition was Sniper Ghost Warrior 3’s downfall, says dev

Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 [official site] did not launch in the healthiest state back in April. Despite multiple delays, it suffered from long load times and more than a few bugs. It was also missing its planned multiplayer component. In a statement made yesterday, CI Games CEO Marek Tymiñski confesses that mistakes were made and tries to offer an explanation.

Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 creeps onto PC

First-person sneak-o-shooter Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 [official site] is now out, popping digital faces from afar in Georgia (not the American one). While the first two Ghostbusters were linear, 3 goes open-world like your Wildlandses and your Far Cries. Ghostbusters 3 is built for sneaking around, surveilling, and carefully picking shots, but players can also try their luck up-close and bang-y.

Slowly, quietly: Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 delayed again

Patience is key when sniping so if you aren't prepared for Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 [official site] to be delayed time after time then it's probably not a game for you anyway. CI Games today announced they're bumping the stealthy first-person shooter back from April 4th to April 25th. Why the delay? Because they want to make the game better, obvs. Following feedback from their…

Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 ‘open beta’ coming February

An open beta test of Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 [official site] will launch next month, ahead of the first-person face-shooter's launch in April. "An off-brand Far Cry with a dash of Battlefield" is what RPS spotter Edwin Evans-Thirlwell called GW3 after playing a preview version last year, which sounds like it might be a lark. If you're interested, you can sign up for the beta…

Feature: Through a glass darkly

Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is an off-brand Far Cry game

We sent Edwin Evans-Thirwell into the field to see Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 [official site] and he came back to us with a report about the good, the bad and the ugly of the game, and thoughts on the loneliness of the long distance killer. Sniper rifles are ubiquitous in video games, but I'm not sure a game has ever captured what it means to…

Sneak-O-Bangs! Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 Gameplay Vid

Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 [official site] is the third in the FPS series, but the first that developers CI Games are making as a "full-fledged triple-A title". The first two face-shooters were a bit cheap and cheerful, see. So what's so different about 3? You can have a peek for yourself, as a new 24-minute narrated gameplay trailer the devs playing through the demo they…

Bang Thhhwpp Splat – Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 Announced

Given the option in an FPS, assuming I'm too far for a shotgun and the game's stingy with revolver ammo, I'm awfully happy with a sniper rifle in my virtual hands. Great noises, sniper rifles. Popping heads with a bolt-action rifle, nervous that their pals are getting closer and closer, is up there with slide-kick-shotgunning and dual-pistol-side-diving on the list of Cool Ways To Kill…

Feature: The game so average it doesn't want you to play

Lords of the Fallen review

Lords of the Fallen is the first of what will surely be many clones of the Souls games – which is great! I adore the Souls series and think the action-RPG genre could learn a tonne from them. Lords of the Fallen, unfortunately, is not the brightest child in the class, and more to the point the PC version is currently in a right old…

Feature: In this WORLD even CAPITAL LETTERS go ROGUE

The PREVIEW we WROTE about LORDS of the FALLEN

I'm not usually one to judge a book by its cover, so to speak, but the capitalisation of LORDS of the FALLEN just has me tickled. It suggests we should shout the first word but then drop to a whisper and, when listeners are lulled into a false sense of security, scream the last syllables like a BANSHEE. If you're thinking 'only an angry nutter…

Feature: Call of Duty dutifully recalled

Enemy Front review

During the 11 hours I've spent with this CryEngined WW2 shooter so far, I've had 4671 separate thoughts. Here are 50 of the most telling. #2038. I've just hacked a man to death with his own entrenching tool. I'm not sure I should be feeling quite this gleeful. #2099. Player-protagonist Robert Hawkins has the personality of a sandbag, but better a bland hero than an irritating…
