Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 explains its three grand campaigns

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 is almost here - due on January 24th - and the space-naval strategy sequel looks to be a tad bigger and more ambitious than its predecessor. In the very seriously narrated info-dump trailer below (it sounds like the man is speaking in ALL CAPS ALL THE TIME), it lays out what its new single-player side entails. While there are twelve playable…

Farming Simulator 19 goes a bit Titchmarsh with landscaping

Virtual farmers, today you shall know true mastery of the land. No longer are you limited to tilling the soil in Farming Simulator 19, today you shall raise mountains, erect houses, and spend ages fiddling with fences to perfect your cute chicken run. Today's update adding landscaping, see, letting us editing the ground itself as well as slap down props like buildings, fences, and such;…

Feature: Argh, it's in my eyes

Insurgency: Sandstorm review

I don’t know if I’m cut out for this. It pains me to write that. I’m RPS’s shooty boy, the kid with the crosshairs. I chomp M4A1 rounds for breakfast. But an average round of Insurgency: Sandstorm tends to chew me up instead, then squat over me while informing me about my poor life choices. I think I’m having a good time?

Insurgency: Sandstorm is out now

Joining the crowded ranks of tactical shooters set in the eternal desert war that has dominated this generation, Insurgency: Sandstorm is out now. New World Interactive's team shooter aims to be realistic without being pointlessly fiddly. Realistic ballistics and some complex reloading mechanics are backed up by simple controls and twitchy, responsive movement. Plus, if you're not into Counter-Strike or Battlefield-inspired competitive play (there's maps…

Feature: Watson, the game is a bit silly

Have You Played… Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments?

There is a moment in Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments where the detective has to identify a brand of cigar. “This scent is familiar to me, but in order to recognise it, I must combine my associations into one picture,” he says. You find yourself swivelling a stink cloud, aligning its wafting lines into a hidden image. Problem is, Holmes’ nose deals in broad stereotypes…

Steam Charts: I Was On Holiday Last Week Edition

I, Alice Bee, have returned from a week off and everything has changed. Matt is in the office now, and complained about having to get up at 8.15am. This complaint made me furious and I am telling everyone. My desk has been moved. There is no milk in the fridge. I am confused, and I can't remember all the HTML codes to write this very…

Werewolf changes hands, now due in 2020

After a good long stretch deep in the woods, Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood has resurfaced with news that the action-RPG has changed publisher, and is now due in 2020. Set in the same 'World Of Darkness' universe as Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines, Werewolf is being made by Styx and Call Of Cthulhu developers Cyanide Studio. And now it's being published by Bigben Interactive,…

Feature: Do not answer

Call of Cthulhu review

I played the first three hours of Call of Cthulhu, and in my unconventional preview after the fact I said that I liked exploring the docks and talking to grizzled locals and detectoring my way through problems. At the end of the preview you reach the bit where you find the cult, and you totally know what’s up, but your character Edward Pierce has no…

Spintires: MudRunner’s dirty American expansion is out today

Spintires: MudRunner is Euro Truck Simulator for people who want to get caked in mud while they scream at the ground, demanding that it release their hefty vehicle. It’s a filthy game of churning up muck, recklessly charging into rivers and trying to get up slippery slopes while laden with lumber. It’s brilliant. It’s also off to America, which I believe is quite muddy, in…

Space Hulk: Tactics review

In the last five years alone, there have been four video game adaptations of the Warhammer 40,000 spin-off, Space Hulk. Plenty of chances to get it right, you’d think, though the first three attempts suggest otherwise. And here comes Space Hulk: Tactics, once again throwing gruesome Genestealers against stompy Terminators in derelict spaceship corridors. It’s not quite a combo-breaker, but it gets very close.

Board game remix Space Hulk: Tactics stomps into stores today

SPACE HULK SPACE HULK SPACE Hu- okay, let's not do that. As polished as Space Hulk: Tactics looks, Cyanide's take on the venerable board game feels like a regular franchise entry now, rather than a once-in-a-blue-moon event it used to be. As with Space Hulk Ascension from a few years back, Tactics is another attempt to capture the spark of Games Workshop's board game of…

The Thursday Matinee: Highlights from the RPS video department

Whew, Thursday already? How did we get here? For those of you who enjoy our video matinees, or for those who didn’t even know we had a YouTube channel (you can subscribe here, by the way), here’s this week's. Yeah it’s a bit late, but we’ve been pretty busy -- you’ll see why on Friday -- and Matthew’s off trying not to get killed in…

The Surge’s wild cyber-west expansion The Good, The Bad And The Augmented is out now

The allure of dusty trails, battered hats and saloons with creaky doors is timeless - the cyborg zombies in exo-frames? That's just anachronistic, but I dig the style of The Surge's new expansion, The Good, The Bad And The Augmented, released today. Described as a series of modifiable 'test chambers', this bit of DLC looks like it breaks away from the Souls-like progression of Deck13's…

Spintires: MudRunner churns up American Wilds in October

Imagine taking a holiday from your job as a trucker ploughing through the mud of Russia, packing your bags and flying over to the Americky, booking a car for a road trip through the sights and sounds of the US of A, only to get stuck in the mud there too. This nightmare will become reality in Spintires: MudRunner on October 23rd, the newly-announced release…

Space Hulk: Tactics trailer explains Genestealer trickery

Warhammer 40K Space Marines in Terminator armour stomping through levels shooting aliens in their many faces is fairly familiar and easy to understand, even when playing out as turn-based combat in Space Hulk: Tactics, but their Genestealer foes are a bit trickier. Unlike some recent Spulk games, Tactics will let us play as those sneaky Tyranids too, which will be novel for many who didn't…

Farming Simulator 19 bwamp-bwamps a new trailer

Y'remember when folks were making Farming Simulator videos set to pounding electronic music, then irony slipped and loads of people realised they actually quite liked virtual harvesting? It might seem one of those folks has ended up working on the game, going by a new official trailer for Farming Simulator 19 which oontch-oontch-bwamp-bwamped out today. Turns out, yep, I still find that juxtaposition funny, and…

While partially available now as a pre-order beta, the final release (featuring more maps and playmodes) has been delayed for additional tuning, polishing up and optimisation on top of a bonus round of bug-fixing. Developers New World Interactive have provided a checklist of things they hope to have tightened up and locked…

The Surge goes west in cowboy expansion

It’s nice to see difficult robot slicer The Surge get dafter with each expansion. The sci-fi Soulslike previously went for a Walk in the Park to chop robot limbs off animatronic bunnies in a malfunctioning theme park. Now, its next expansion, The Good, the Bad, and the Augmented, is visiting the basement laboratory of a mad doctor who has themed his entire facility after the…
