Hardspace: Shipbreaker has made its salvage simulation even more difficult with the new Haunted Frontier update that adds unmanned ghost ships to the game. if you're successful, congrats, Hardspace is getting stickers as rewards that you can slap on your tools. Good freelancer, don't complain. The update is out now along with…

Necromunda: Underhive Wars plans to fix crashes and save corruption

Turn-based gang warfare game Necromunda: Underhive Wars launched its grimy take on Warhammer 40,000 earlier this week. You'd expect to need some grit in a strategy game set in a polluted, gun-totin' dystopia but players seem to be fighting the game itself about as much as rival gangs. The makers say they've been watching player feedback and have set out a plan to fix crashes,…

Necromunda: Underhive Wars trailer explains the Warhammer spin-off’s warring

Next week we'll be invited to visit a particularly dirty corner of the Warhammer 40,000 universe in Necromunda: Underhive Wars, a turn-based tactical squad game from the studio behind Mordheim: City Of The Damned. Based vaguely on the Games Workshop tabletop wargame Necromunda, Underhive Wars is set in the bowels of a vast city on an industrial planet, where wacky gangs brawl over the dregs…

Warhammer Age Of Sigmar: Storm Ground turn-based strategy game announced

The first strategy adaptation of Games Workshop's Age Of Sigmar is coming next year. Developed by Gasket Games, Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Storm Ground will put players in charge of fantasy forces fighting turn-based tactical battles. The announcement trailer from Gamescom Opening Light Live didn't reveal too much, but it did show some golden shiny lads riding dragons, which was pretty cool.

Hardspace: Shipbreaker gets competitive with weekly scrapping challenges

Having already laid out a crushing capitalist future where debt is insurmountable and bodies are expendable, Hardspace: Shipbreaker now plans to pit its disposable workers against each other. Weekly challenges have arrived, delivering a new ship each week for gig-work scavengers to tear apart as efficiently as possible - proving once and for all who, exactly, is the best orbital vulture around.

Aeon Must Die’s slick debut was allegedly built with “abuse, manipulation and theft”

A sharp-as-hell slasher set to hit Steam and PS4 next year, Aeon Must Die made an unexpected splash during Sony's State Of Play showcase last Thursday. Unfortunately, it's not the game folks are talking about in the wake of Limestone's debut. Instead, the game has found itself locked in a minefield of allegations, as former developers accuse bosses at Limestone of abuse, harassment, unwarranted firings…

Hood: Outlaws & Legends is a new PvPvE multiplayer heist game based on Robin Hood

Though Robin Hood was famously surrounded by his Merry Men, the newly-announced Hood: Outlaws & Legends is “a dark and gritty re-imagining of the Robin Hood legend”. Unveiled last night during Sony's State Of Play stream, Hood is a heist game where two teams of four aim to nab the same prize, fighting both AI guards and each other - a bit like Hunt: Showdown…

Feature: The only postman simulator I need

Have you played… Space Run?

Space Run has got to be one of the least tower defence-y tower defence games in my Steam library. It has more in common with FTL than with most other games in its genre: your aim as Captain (and certified space-postman) Buck Mann is to fly your ship as quickly as possible from collection point to delivery point, micro-managing your resources and defences in real-time…

Feature: Sisters are doin' it for themselves

Othercide is a tactical roguelite about the world’s pushiest mother

Mums, eh? Can’t live with ‘em, literally can’t live without ‘em. Sadly, some take this as a certificate of ownership, allowing them to subject their offspring to the worst things imaginable, like offering them as a guinea pig to a class of trainee hairdressers. A perfect storm of nerves and scissors. Sorry, I should probably keep this for therapy. The point I’m getting to (ignoring…

SnowRunner season one adds a Russian map and free map-modding tools

Vehicular disaster simulator SnowRunner has launched its first chunk of seasonal content today. You'll want to bring those snow chains because there's a decent bit to plow through. Season Pass holders will be headed to an icy lake in Russia while all other players will have some new map-modding tools and missions to play with. There's more yet to come later in the summer, say…

SnowRunner is adding a frozen new map next week

Let it not be said that SnowRunner doesn't have enough snow to run (well, drive) through. The rough n' tough truck sim is adding more routes to get stuck in with Lake Kovd, a treacherous frozen quagmire packed that'll arrive with the game's first season pass update later this week. Hope you've brought tyre chains, because it's about to get real slippery in old Russia.

Hardspace: Shipbreaker has made shift timers optional

Superb spaceship slicing sim Hardspace: Shipbreaker has added a new difficulty option to career mode, with shift timers disabled. The existing career mode cuts you off and forces you back to base every 15 minutes, making things too stressful and intrusive for some. You can now take all the time you want with a wreck instead. They've also made the puzzling decision to give you…

Have You Played… Blood Bowl 2?

If Graham allowed us to swear above the cut, I would one hundred percent have started this post with a string of expletives. Because Warhammer-themed sports game Blood Bowl 2 is utterly maddening. I'm playing in a league at the moment, the bottom of which I am hugging like a flipping anchor, and while the people I'm playing with are great, I dread every fixture…

Feature: Break it down

Hardspace: Shipbreaker review (early access)

Hardspace: Shipbreaker is a game about peeling open spaceships like they’re massive tin cans to reveal the abandoned detritus inside. The belongings of long departed crews hang in the darkness like deep sea fish. Cola bottles and crisp packets wander past your visor, disturbed into aimless tumbles by the change in air pressure when you popped open the airlock like a champagne cork. The only…

Horror turn-based tactics game Othercide is coming in July

The stylish turn-based tactical action of Othercide is coming on July 28th, publishers Focus Home Interactive have announced. That's the post-Apocalyptic one about fighting demon-y beasties with an army of 'Daughters', female warriors who wear flowing scarves and strike cool poses. Lots of talk about suffering. Bit of blood magic, maybe. And sacrifice, definitely. It's a hearty slap of mood, though I've not yet seen…

Feature: A spaceman came sawing

Hardspace: Shipbreaker is so destructive… but so relaxing

Without good, honest workers stripping apart old spaceships, the galaxy would be much more crowded. The reason you never see Luke Skywalker run into traffic is because of the hard work done by the great tradesmen of the Milky Way. If you've always been more interested in carefully dismantling spaceships rather than flying them, Hardspace: Shipbreaker is definitely something you should check out.

Spaceship salvage sim Hardspace: Shipbreaker is now out in early access

Of all the reasons not to release a new game during this busy notE3 period, surely the greatest is that I simply do not have time to play Hardspace: Shipbreaker right now. Launched into early access today by Homeworld 3 developers Blackbird Interactive, it's a first-person sim about carefully cutting up spaceships to sell salvage. Blackbird, do you have any idea how many showcase streams…

Hardspace: Shipbreaker breaks down how to break down a spaceship

Ahead of its early access launch next week, a new vid for Hardspace: Shipbreaker details the delicate process of cutting up an industrial transport ship for salvage without accidentally blowing it up. Coming from Homeworld 3 and Deserts Of Kharak developers Blackbird Interactive, Shipbreaker is a first-person sim about the fine art of space salvage. Buy old ships, crack 'em open, strip them for parts,…

SnowRunner has added a new map, Rift

A new area has opened up in SnowRunner with a free update today, inviting players to get stuck in the Taymyr's Rift map. Sounds like a great place to take a honking great truck off-roading, Rift does. The publishers have also now picked winners for the first wad of monthly prize money for people making popular SnowRunner mods.

Cutting up starships in Hardspace: Shipbreaker sure looks neat

On the list of mundane tasks done in less mundane settings is Hardspace: Shipbreaker, the deconstruction simulation that turns you into an industrial space worker trying not to get crushed by either flying ship parts or debt. Blackbird Interactive have shared a new video all about chopping up these monstrous ships and heck it looks pretty neat.
