The Resident Evil Resistance beta is delayed on PC for an unknown time

Resident Evil 3's multiplayer horror mode was meant to have a free beta beginning today. Capcom say that "technical issues" have delayed the beta for PC and PS4 players but not Xbox One, interestingly. They've yet to give an update on when the beta will be available for PC players. Fortunately there's still the regular RE3 demo while we wait.

Football Manager offers in-game advertising space to mental health charities

With real sports off for the time being, fans are turning to their virtual versions with everything from basketball teams simulating their games in NBA 2K20 to Formula 1 holding races in F1 2019. The footy's off too, so Football Manager 2020 has kindly been free to play in full for a week on Steam. Now developers Sports Interactive have extended that free trial by…

Resident Evil 3 opens a slice of Raccoon City in today’s free demo

A deadly outbreak, broken quarantine, a malevolent pharmaceutical company and store shelves utterly devoid of toilet paper. Perhaps Resident Evil 3 is hitting too close to home right now - or perhaps, it's never been more timely. With the RE3 remake's release just weeks away, Capcom have opened the gates to Racoon City a little early with today's free demo. Take on the Nemesis, evade…

Steam Game Festival is live with oodles of excellent game demos

Steam kicks off a nearly week-long spree of free game demos today with its Steam Game Festival. It is certifiably a celebration of great indie games, with demos available for some that are already released and others yet to come. There appears to be a bit of everything: puzzles, action, management, platforming, and more. Everything from Thunder Lotus' upcoming cozy management game Spiritfarer to the…

That Resident Evil 3 demo is officially arriving Thursday

The zombie apocalypse may not be the most comforting thing to play through at the moment. Or maybe it will be pleasantly cathartic. You can decide for yourself later this week when the free demo for Jill and Ted's Carlos' horrible adventure through zombie-infested Raccoon City lands on PC. You can take the Resident Evil 3 remake for a spin starting Thursday.

Carrion and a dozen other games have demos for The Game Awards

The Game Awards may be a pointless set of trophies thrown like bath bombs into a big tub of adverts, but one nice thing to come from them is a big blast of demos for upcoming games. For the next 48 hours, The Game Festival on Steam will offer demos of thirteen games including System Shock remake, gutsy platformer Carrion, and the self-explanatory Skatebird. This…

Dice-rolling dungeon diver Solasta: Crown Of The Magister gets a demo

Solasta: Crown Of The Magister understands something fundamentally important about this medium of ours. Games can be so many things, but sometimes I just want to bash goblins with an axe. While I've become a bit fussier with my tastes in my mid-twenties, I'll always have a soft spot for the time I spent building daft wee Neverwinter Nights 2 adventure modules over an easter…

Signs Of The Sojourner serves up new demo alongside crowdfunding campaign

Conversational deckbuilder Signs Of The Sojourner has a new demo, letting you sling cards and get chatty with various other travellers and some lovely snack salespeople. Who might be the best people to make small talk with, because not only can you explore the game’s themes of changing selfhood, but you get food at the end. If you’ve not seen it in action before, here’s…

Neo Cab has a demo now, and launches in October

You can today hop behind the wheel of the final human-driven taxis in our near-future in a new demo for Neo Cab. That's the chat-o-driver we've cooed at a few times since its announcement in 2018, and it's finally almost here. As well as releasing the demo, developers Chance Agency today announced a release date of October 3rd. Have a peek in the new trailer…

A Plague Tale: Innocence now has a demo

That One Game With The Brilliant Rats, aka A Plague Tale: Innocence, now has a demo so we can all admire the rats. And maybe be drawn into the story of kiddywinkles sneaking through France during the Black Death, pursued by the Inquisition and surrounded by ravenous rats. Even our Alice Bee, who is known to feel nothing for the awful digikids we're forced to…

Anno 1800 has a demo, but only for one week

Ubisoft have launched a week-long demo for Anno 1800, the latest in their city 'n' empire-building game. You've got until Monday to play a Victorian coloniser, wearing silly hats and ruthlessly exploiting resources and people for capital gain. And in the game. It is weird for a demo to be limited in both quantity and time, given how many week-long full-game trials we see these…

Konami kickabout PES 2020 has a demo out now

Ahem - ah, fitbaw! The bootiful game. Nothing better than gathering the crew 'round for a great big kickabout in the park, right? Actually, tell you what, that sounds a bit rubbish right now. It's all wet out, my spiked shoes are all busted up, and Mister Johnson's not given the ball back since we kicked it into his cabbage patch. How's about some eFootball…

Body-ballooning shooter Morphie’s Law is now out on PC

Mind when games had big head mode? Morphie's Law: Remorphed is a bit like that, but with your character's whole body. The RPS treehouse have had our eyes on this body-morphing multiplayer game for a while: it's a third-person shooter where blasting someone's body-part causes it to shrink and yours to grow. For example - shot someone in the foot? Congratulations, you'll be needing bigger…

Square Enix JRPG Oninaki has a daemon-infested demo out now

Kagachi understands the freelance life. It's tough stuff, I know: trading out jobs, pushing yourself to breaking point. Allowing haunted fiends from beyond the grave to possess you and change your career goals. Don't believe me? You can put in an hour-and-a-half right now. Oninaki is the latest game from Square Enix's Tokyo RPG Factory - the bit of Squeenix that makes more of those…

Eve: Aether Wars invites pilots to next month’s 10,000 player dogfight

Whew, hard to believe it, but this will be my last news post for RPS for the foreseeable future. Fitting, then, that it's about going large and loud and blotting out the heavens themselves with explosions. Eve: Aether Wars is a collaborative tech demo/stress test run by Eve Online developers CCP and cloud networking techies Hadean, researching new ways to cram even more players onto…

Where The Water Tastes Like Wine spins some Chinese American yarns

Dim Bulb's quiet and contemplative story tell 'em up Where The Water Tastes Like Wine is still out there, trudging down America's dusty depression-era roads, collecting and telling stories. Today, it has a few new ones to tell. Today's Gold Mountain Update adds an official Chinese localisation, produced by a crew of dedicated Chinese-speaking fans led by one Ryan Zhang. More importantly for English-speakers, it…

Jupiter Hell summons players for a weekend demo

Let's not beat around the bush; Jupiter Hell is a spiritual sequel to Doom: The Roguelike, aka DoomRL (aka DRL post-lawyering), and that's plenty of reason to play it. You can try it out right now, though the gates of hell will snap shut again at 6pm BST on Monday, July 8th. If you want to shotgun some demons in tactical, turn-based fashion, there's just one…
