Battlefleet Gothic: Armada Opening Tau Beta Tomorrow

The Tau are coming to Battlefleet Gothic: Armada [official site], the real-time adaptation of Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40K spaceship battle boardgame, serving the Greater Good. Those blue fellas will be paid DLC but, in the sharing spirit, from tomorrow they’ll be free for Battlefleet players to try in beta for a bit. Maybe you’ll like how they think. Maybe you’ll want to sign up. Maybe you’ll want to launch military campaigns to help everyone else realise the Tau way is best.

Watch 14 Minutes Of Vampyr Pre-Alpha Gameplay

Vampyr

Oh hey, I didn’t see this gameplay demo walkthrough-y footage of Vampyr [official site] come up earlier this week. It’s sort of from E3 but this version that doesn’t have people talking over the top so let’s have a look now. (In case you need a little refresher it’s that vampire-themed RPG from the Life Is Strange devs where you’re a vampire doctor and have to make decisions about who to kill to sate your thirst.)

Lords Of The Fallen Devs Show Off The Surge

German studio Deck13 are mostly known for adventure games like Jack Keane but they’ve gone a bit biff-bow in recent years, most recently with Lords of the Fallen, a pretty bleh Dark Souls-inspired action-RPG. Well, they’ll be biffing again next year with The Surge [official site], a sci-fi hack ‘n’ slash action-RPG which they’re showing off now in a new 15-minute gameplay trailer. Observe:

Mad Mars: The Technomancer Out Today

The more I think about it the more I realize The Technomancer [official site] is just Mad Max: Fury Road on Mars but without the all the exploding cars. There’s a definite desert vibe and a massive shortage of water — so what else do you need? Well, in truth, probably a lot more. But still, The Technomancer looks intriguing and is out on Steam today.

Mordheim: City Of The Damned Adds Witch Hunters

Nice hat!

Witch Hunters have arrived in Mordheim: City of the Damned [official site].

You: I don’t know, which hunters?

I said, Witch Hunters are in the turn-based tactical Warhammer game as a DLC faction.

You: I give up, you tell me, who’s here?

What? I don’t… you mean Who the baseball player? First baseman for St. Louis? Here?

You: Wait- are you forcing me into a sloppy riff on Abbott and Costello? You should stop. Alice, this isn’t right. Putting these words in my fingers like this. It’s not on.

Ah fine, fine. Let’s get down to business. Yes, you will need to buy the DLC to play as the Witch Hunters, but if you don’t they can still appear as enemies. That’s nice.

Space Marines Invade Battlefleet Gothic: Armada Today

As if space strategy Battlefleet Gothic: Armada [official site] wasn’t grim enough, Space Marines will be entering the orbital fray today. In addition to the Tau, which should be added to Battlefleet sometime later, both races are available for free to people who already own the game or who buy it before the end of the day. They’ll then be available thereafter as extra DLC for everyone else.

Space-Honk Space-Honkkk! Space Run Galaxy Released

E what now? No no, come on, get out of here with your “this game is expected to launch in late 2019.” I don’t care what The Man says. Reader, I should mention that I’m flanked by two hired goons named – sorry, I feel awful for not asking: what are your names? – Edith and Duncan, lovely to meet you, from Big Video Games. The Man has told them to “show her what happens to people who post about games already out.”

But for you, reader dear, I shall risk life, limb, and possible friendship – like, you seem cool, Edith, and I won’t hold my impending finger-breaking against you so if you wanna hang out some time…? – to tell you that Space Run Galaxy [official site], a tower defense-ish game about building a beefy space-truck to haul space-cargo, is out now.
