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…

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…

Boo! Lords of the Fallen Coming On Halloween

I like Halloween. I like the spooky music, the spooky movies, the spooky costumes, the spooky canapés, the spooky cocktails, the spooky video games--all the spooky things. Not to mention the cheap fake blood. The first video game to draw a circle around October 31 with a red pen this year (or is it blood? is it your blood?) is Lords of the Fallen, declaring…

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…

Correspondents Winner: World War 2 Is Back In Enemy Front

I remember when this here were all World War 2 games, as far as the eye can see. Before we had yer modern warfares and yer advanced warfares and yer fancy space games fer use in intros about commonplace genres, it was all about Nazis, hedges in France and Steven Spielberg movies. With Wolfenstein out and City Interactive's Enemy Front just around the corner, let's…

Totally Not Dark Souls: Lords Of The Fallen Touts Difficulty

I can't imagine it's easy being a videogame door. One day your kind is totally invincible - your unassuming lacquered flesh the only thing capable of withstanding a fully buffed out hero's galaxy lance machine punch gun - and the next the merest of kicks explodes you into splinters. That's why I really feel for the door in the trailer for former Witcher 2 man…

World War II Never Changes: Enemy Front

Younger readers may not be aware that World War II games were once like zombie games are today. Everywhere you looked, Allied soldiers were planting satchel charges and running through the bombed-out ruins of once-picturesque French villages. Over 85% of games released between 1999 and 2004 featured an Omaha Beach level. Enemy Front looks like it may take us back to that time. The opening…

Behold: Alien Rage Is The Name

Alien Rage is apparently the new name for Alien Fear, although neither game had materialised on my Release Schedule Bioscanner before today. Anyway, it has a trailer which shoes some aliens and some rage. Good thing they dropped that fear malarky, that would have made no sense at all. Anyway, the teaser trailer below makes it look like a game somewhere in the middle of…

Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 Can See Far Away In The Leaves

Sniping. It's not really fair, is it? I mean, maybe there are a lot more dudes with AKs than there are men wearing some jungle, but jungleman doesn't have to make things so one-sided, does he? That Sniper Ghost Warrior, Too - who isn't actually a ghost, it turns out - couldn't perhaps give them a head start, or let them wear really thick helmets…

Scoping Mechanisms: Sniper – Ghost Warrior 2

Games about snipers tend to involve a lot of things that aren't sniping and in the case of Ghostlier Warrior, stabbing men in the armpit will be a significant feature if this footage is to be believed. Men are shot from afar, it's true, but the majority of a sniper's working day is not spent squeezing the trigger after an intake of breath so sharp…

Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 Is Maybe Too Pretty

Join us in debate. The trailer for Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 begins by saying it is all created with the game's engine. But having missed that message, one of our number dismissed the trailer as CGI. But where is reality? If the game really looks as good as this trailer shows, it'll be the best looking game we've ever seen. But being created using CryEngine,…

Witcher Too: Former CDP Lead’s New RPG At Deck 13

When I awoke this morning, I could feel a certain electricity in the air. The animals near my home tensed and mewed restlessly, and my left shoulder blade pulsated with a dull ache. I knew these signs. This day, I realized, would be very, very Witchy. Predictably, CD Projekt trotted out Geralt in all his finest freebies, and I figured - short of, perhaps, a…

De-Mercing: World Of Mercenaries Announced

City Interactive have announced that they will be publishing a free-to-play shooter called World Of Mercenaries. Which immediately begs the question: if it is a world entirely made of mercenaries, who hires them? Do they hire each other? And why? Tricky stuff for any dev studio to handle, I'm sure. It seems like such questions haven't hindered development, however, because it's just one week to…

Scoping Out Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 And Sniper Elite V2

Morning sniper fans. Remember when there were no sniper related games around? The army's stealthiest strategist has never commanded an audience, preferring camo and a nice bush to kicking down doors and shouting bad things about your various female relatives. But soon there will be two sniper game vying for your beady eyes. I've already spoken a bit about Sniper Elite V2, so the newest…

Friendly Rear: Enemy Front

City Interactive have sent word of a new "gritty" FPS called Enemy Front. They explain: "Enemy Front is the realistic tale of a hardened soldier dropped behind Nazi lines to engage in dynamic, diversified missions ranging from quick skirmishes, espionage assignments, and sabotage activities." The game is being developed jointly by studios in UK and Poland, and is designed by Stuart Black, who worked on…

There’s Also Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2

A profound lack of sleep has left me with a unique super-power: to be impressed and moved by anything at all. I was welling up just watching these five minutes of Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 footage. Those poor bullets! Fired off into people's icky headbits without a second thought. Separated from their cartridge buddies forever. Awful. This footage is actually a bit old, being from…

Sniper’s CryEngine Sequel Sighted

City Interactive announced last month that they are now working on four FPS games, and that CryEngine 3 had been licensed for (at least some of) them. One of those has now been confirmed as the sequel to Sniper: Ghost Warrior (which everyone told me to avoid, but I guess must have sold okay to be getting a sequel), as confirmed by this news story…

Sniper, Sniper, Er, Trailering Bright… Sorry.

Blue spotted that there's a new trailer out for City Interactive's long-distance-death themed shooter (with occasional knives) Sniper: Ghost Warrior, and it's really pretty neat. (And really below the click). The trailer shows that the different difficulty settings will mean, how sniper finds his way around the level, hapless soldiermen under crosshairs, and how the stealth mode works. I'm not expecting this one to be…

Sniper: Ghost Warrior Features Jungle

The tropical environment, not the music. The music, in fact, is that BA-DA-DA BA-DA-DA orchestral stuff that means ACTION is about to occur. The Sniper: Ghost Warrior trailer claims that the footage is created using the game engine, but the trailer is nevertheless FMV, presumably showing how the game is meant to be understood. You're a sniper, you shoot people from far away. There's a…
