Crytek are booting up something Crysis related

After a long sleep, Crysis appears to be waking up. Crytek have been busy in the meantime with the likes of Hunt: Showdown while Crysis took something of a cold-storage nap. The  super serious super soldier FPS series added Crysis 3 to the stables back in 2013. Seven years later, the official Crysis Twitter account is broadcasting signs of life.

How Hunt: Showdown creates hot, dripping tension

There’s a lot to be frightened by in Hunt: Showdown. Bee ladies, dying horses, a scuttering spider-beast. Slavering hounds, alarms made of clattering hanging bones, zombies. Ducks. It’s like this whole bayou hates you. But the swamp and its horrible denizens aren’t Hunt: Showdown’s antagonists. The real source of tension is other players. Every detail of this shooter’s design is about engineering a sense of…

Cloud Imperium and Crytek finally settle their long legal dispute

For the last few years, Star Citizen's battles haven't been high-flying dogfights. Instead, developers Cloud Imperium have been tangled in a dispute with Crytek, exchanging heated legal blows in lieu of laser blasts. But now, at long last, it seems the two warships declared a long-overdue ceasefire. Court documents posted this week reveal that Crytek and Cloud Imperium have agreed to settle the former's lawsuit.

Star Citizen devs want Crytek’s car-crash lawsuit to stop, for good

Forget dogfighting, first-person shooting and interstellar exploration. For the last few years, Star Citizen has looked increasingly like those bits in the Star Wars prequels where muppets sit on big steel dodgems to discuss trade agreements. 2020 looks to be no different, with a long-standing dispute between Cloud Imperium Games and Crysis/CryEngine-maker Crytek coming to a head once again. This month, Crytek asked for their…

Playstyle Royale – Being a spider conservationist in Hunt: Showdown

In Playstyle Royale, I normally head into a battle royale game and try to win my chicken dinner while adhering to arbitrary rules. This time I'm playing Hunt: Showdown, which is merely like a battle royale game, and the whole point of today's exercise is to prevent needless animal death. If only more people knew about the vital role demonic spiders play in our ecosystem,…

Hunt: Showdown wades out of the early access bayou next month

Weird Western (yes, I know it's set in the swampy deep south, it's a genre descriptor) competitive monster-slaying FPS Hunt: Showdown launches in full on August 27th. While I didn't get to play it as much as I wanted to during its recent free trial, I've acquired a taste for Crytek's grim blend of duos battle royale and tense horror-themed shooter. There's a big nasty…

Crytek taking their Warface… off

Crytek's hilariously-named free-to-play FPS Warface is taking off, its development team splintering up to set up their own independent studio and taking the game with them. Blackwood Games is their name, and continuing Warface is their game. Crytek say it'll be better for the game to be independent, and that this will also let Crytek focus on other plans. Updates already announced for Warface are…

Edwin Evans-Thirlwell’s 5 best games of 2018

If my 2018 was the year “of” anything, it was surely the year of knowing your place. The games I've picked out in hindsight are united by the idea of understanding how you fit into a complex world - appreciating the intricacy of the variables and relationships that surround every given moment, whether your overall aim be to subdue them or just survive them. That…

Hunt Showdown adds second map

As Hunt Showdown continues its journey through early access, developers Crytek today launched a big update adding their PvPvE weird west FPS's second map. Named Lawson Delta, it explores a less rugged corner of Louisiana with a prison, a fortress, and even a train station. Well lah-di-dah, aren't these unholy hordes spoiled with modernity.

Hunt monsters in Crytek’s PvPvE shooter Hunt: Showdown in a free trial weekend

The other game about hunting monsters, Hunt: Showdown, is currently holding a free trial weekend inviting all and sundry to trudge through swamp while fending off beasties and their fellow hunters. Having spent yesterday evening in a river, weekend swamptime sounds just the ticket. I've heard promising things about Hunt but been waiting until it properly launched before diving it but... ah, gwan, I'll install…

Maximum Sadness: Crysis multiplayer is facing the axe

"Will it run Crysis?" was an oft-expressed anxiety of mid-noughties PC gaming, but here in the chaotic end-times of 2018 we're faced with a new one: "Crysis can't run Crysis."Come October, there'll be no more multiplayer nanosuit shenanigans: Crytek are shutting the online component of Crysis down, apparently because the playerbase is just too dang small to make life support worthwhile. Singleplayer isn't going anywhere,…

Hunt: Showdown whips out crossbows & throwing knives

Sneaky new crossbows and throwing knives have arrived in Hunt: Showdown's latest update, for monster-hunters who enjoy having to recover ammo by yanking it out their foe's face. For me, basically - from Heavy Bullets to Skyrim, I do enjoy having to collect my ammo - and risking running out. Apparently you can even restock your Showdown knives by yanking out ones that other players…

While the PvPvE monster-hunting FPS Hunt Showdown continues its journey through early access, developers Crytek today launched what they're calling its "first major content update". It adds new scoped guns and new character traits to improve your monstermashing, and also takes a crack at solving the problem of camping. It's no fun to slug it out with the big bad and walk away with its…
