Plants Vs. Zombies: Battle For Neighborville launches Founders Edition for eager gardeners

I can't tell you how or why Plants Vs. Zombies - that verdant tower defence thing - became an arena shooter. It seems to have worked out well for Popcap, at least - especially considering that older thing turned into this mobile monstrosity. I'm sure those shooters they keep making are good. Plants Vs. Zombies: Battle For Neighborville was announced today. It looks pretty nifty,…

Have You Played…Command & Conquer: Red Alert?

Command & Conquer: Red Alert asks one question: what would happen if Hitler never existed? As a sort of side project/pseudo-sequel to the original Command & Conquer, Red Alert begins with Soviet scientists going back in time to assassinate the uber-fascist. The consequences are felt throughout the series but in the original, war breaks out anyway, and you can either side with the Allies (who…

The Sims 4: Realm Of Magic looks pretty Pottery

I’ve burnt my feet in a fireplace, severely concussed myself in Kings Cross station, and my mugshot hangs in every owl sanctuary throughout the land. It’s fair to say that Hogwarts just doesn’t want me, but that's okay, as I’ve sniffed out a potential replacement. The next The Sims 4 game pack Realm Of Magic might not be an entirely original prospect, but since we’re…

Need For Speed Heat release date, trailer, gameplay, news

Gamescom saw the release of the Need For Speed Heat gameplay trailer. It had everything you would expect to see from a Need For Speed game - fast cars, police chases, and rig customisation. We've got more details on exactly how to play the game, with daytime Speedhunter sanctioned tournaments, and the unsanctioned races at night.

Apex Legends making Iron Crown event loot system less grubby after breaking promise

Respawn Entertainment have said that Apex Legends event loot boxes "broke [their] promise" of trying to "do monetisation in a way that felt fair." The new Iron Crown event whammed a load of new cosmetic doodads into loot boxes, and the most elusive was only available if you got all the others first. Our boy Brendan noted that it "feels grubby," and it does. Now…

Games like Fortnite – the best battle royale games you can play right now

Fortnite: Battle Royale, I think it's fair to say, is the standout title of the decade-old battle royale game genre. Not since Minecraft have we seen a game enter the mainstream in this way - but that doesn't mean Fortnite is the only battle royale out there that's worth playing. We'll go over just a few of the very best battle royale games like Fortnite…

Apex Legends’ stunt gauntlet is neat but the new loot shop is crap

If you are one of the three people I gassed to death last night in a giant plyboard stunt arena, I am sorry. I was overly enthusiastic about the new gauntlet that appeared on the map of Apex Legends, the game we were playing. That enthusiasm got to my head. I misjudged your friendly rifle potshots as an invitation to fill your lungs with toxic…

Apex Legends heatmap proves how much you all love Skulltown

A clever clogs on the internet has made a bunch of heatmaps for battle royale shooter Apex Legends, and they confirm the worst: everyone loves Skulltown. Even though Skulltown is a hateful warren of confusion, panic and death. The maps were made by a Reddit boffin with an unsayable username (it’s “ZYy9oQ”) and they show the popularity of all drop zones across the violent bumslide…

Apex Legends tournament pulled from TV following US shootings

A tournament for cartoony battle royale game Apex Legends - which was scheduled to air this weekend on ABC and ESPN - has been postponed in light of the recent US shootings. The decision to pull the weekend broadcast was confirmed to RPS by an ESPN spokesperson, who tells us the tournament will now be broadcast on the channel in October. "The decision was made…

Plants Vs. Zombies 3 announc- oh for… it’s a chuffing mobile game

Good news: EA have announced Plants Vs. Zombies 3. Bad news: it's free-to-play again, and microtransactions were a blight on PvZ 2. Nullifying news: but this time it's just a mobile game so who even cares. Ian Arts, you are a monster. After the microtransaction-muddled Plants vs. Zombies 2 and the I've-heard-they're-good-but-they're-not-what-I-want multiplayer Garden Warfare spin-offs, I had hoped EA might return to plain ol'…

Befriending the creatures of Apex Legends

You can never have too many friends. Especially not when you've yet to befriend the dragons and dinosaurs of Apex Legends, now romping around Kings Canyon thanks to the advent of Season 2. I'm going to go and meet them, thus hopefully bricking up a fraction of the gaping hole loneliness leaves in both man and beast.

Apex Legends season 2 launches with map changes and space dragons

Apex Legends, the battle royale hit and Titanfall 2 spinoff, is kicking off its second season today. Repawn have added a new playable character -- Wattson -- who seems like a bright spark, a new laser rifle, and (arguably most notable) a wave of map changes. Some git's gone and kersploded the big shield tower in the centre of the map, which has not only…

Apex Legends Season 2 will let you go right up to those big stompy boys

Get your Apelegs pumping. You'll need them to run away from the dinos and dragons about to be unleashed on Kings Canyon, come July 2nd. They're part of a menagerie of map changes in Apex Legends Season 2, as shown off yesterday in two leaked trailers. Developers Respawn Entertainment have since officially released the trailers, mentioned they're rather sad about the whole leak thing, and…

Battlefield V’s secret hand gun is perfectly horrifying

The Battlefield games have long been nests of Easter eggs, hiding everything from rare reload animations where you perform magic tricks on guns to giant prehistoric sharks who'll leap up and git ya. Battlefield V still had a few to hide, it seems, and may yet have more. But what's most got my attention is the horrible finger gun found this week, fired by having…

Take a longer, more lasery look at Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order in motion

While Lucasfilm may object to wanton limb-chopping, they can't stop Respawn from giving us a big slice of the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order video today. A little under half an hour long (double shown publicly at E3), we get to see a little Uncharted-ish clambering across an AT-AT walker, some mech combat, and a lot of lightsaber stuff. We also get some extended dialogue, a…

Star Wars Battlefront 2 rolls out Droidekas and a new map next week

The rolling, shielded, three-legged Droidekas are headed to Star Wars Battlefront 2 on June 26th, in the next big free update for the once-maligned online shooter. While of little narrative importance, their cool-as-heck design cemented them as one of the most memorable fighting machines in the prequels, and now we get to be them, if you can earn the points to buy in. Below, a video…

Become a mermaid today in The Sims 4’s Island Living expansion

We can finally return to the seas in The Sims 4 with today's launch of the Island Living expansion, just walk from the beach directly into the water. Given that our virtuapeeps can befriend dolphins and also be mermaids, I'm not sure why EA have spent so much time making new activities on the new tropical island. If we can go in the sea, why…

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order release date, trailer, everything we know

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order didn't make much of a first impression when it was shown off at E3 this year, but we at least now know a bit more about what kind of game it is, as well as the release date. Granted they're important things to know, and we now have a better idea of what to expect in November.

‘When you feel lonely you always feel excluded’ – Sea Of Solitude’s writer on loneliness and metaphors

You probably remember the reveal of Sea Of Solitude at E3 in 2018 because of CEO Cornelia Geppert’s excitement and sincerity when presenting the game. Geppert is self-effacing about it, and told me it was surprising to her that people responded that way. “The actual developers of course are always passionate about their project!” she said. “I think it's normal when you do your project…
