Rayman Legends is free on the Epic Games Store this week

Come one, come all. Epic Games have spun the big wheel of free games once again - this week, Rayman Legends is running, jumping and slapping up the store for nary a penny. A rhythm-driven romp through some lovingly drawn chaos, it's one of the best platformers on PC - and you can pick it up for free until next Friday.

Feature: Classic Doom really is Eternal

The best Doom mods of 2019

There's only a few weeks left in 2019, and we're fast approaching this year's Cacowards, Doomworld's annual community awards, so it feels only right to see what's been going on in the classic Doom modding scene these past few months. I'm beating the Cacowards to the punch, really, and giving you a handful of choice picks to get your teeth into early. We've got Doom…

Deathgarden shuffles towards the grave, but not without a celebration

Behaviour Interactive ceased development on the brutal survival shooter, Deathgarden: Bloodharvest Friday after nearly half a year of triage. The makers of Dead By Daylight are punting the idea of a dour funeral, though. Instead, every feature the team have been working on was pushed out the door for players to enjoy. It's Deathgarden: Bloodharvest's wake, and everyone is invited because the game has now…

Warframe builds a battleship in the incoming Rising Tides update

Empyrean will add space battles to third-person slice 'em up Warframe. We've known that for good while now. But where do a rag-tag band of high-concept fashion ninjas get their hands on a massive spaceship anyway? Incoming free update Rising Tides answers that question, preparing for the galactic warfare to come by setting loot-hungry players loose across the solar system in a stellar smash n'…

Bad North is free on the Epic Games Store

The latest free game Epic are footing the bill for to entice people onto their store is Bad North, 2018's real-time tactics game about handfuls of units defending pretty wee islands against Viking invaders. It's nice! It has a roguelikelike edge too, with units carrying over on our trip across the procedurally-generated islands of the archipelago. For free, mate, get in.

Fortnite gets technical, adding DirectX 12 support in this week’s update

This week's Fortnite update is much like any other. A few bug fixes here, some rebalances there, clean the blood off the grass for another night's mass-murder. But one of patch 11.20's least noticeable updates may, in fact, be its most important. Epic Games have added DirectX 12 support to their massive battle royale, laying the groundwork for future graphical and technical flourishes while providing…

Teamfight Tactics resets the board and brings in League’s tiniest superstars

Now that players have had a few weeks to feel out the Set 2 changes, Ranked matchmaking returns to a Teamfight Tactics with patch 9.23. A new season brings a clean slate, resetting everyone's ranks and bringing some significant changes to the way climbing the ranks works. More importantly: TFT added three adorable new Legends to its lineup with a banging new music video. Welcome…

Rainbow Six Siege partners with Netflix for a free week of crime

Once stalwart agents of counterterrorism, two of Rainbow Six Siege's elite operators have decided to ditch their day jobs for a week on the other side. From today through Monday the 25th, Hibana and Vigil are joining up with the crew of Netflix's Money Heist for some crimson crime capers in Siege's first crossover outside of loaning characters to other Ubisoft games. There's no need…

Pick up Company Of Heroes 2 free this weekend, keep it forever

Relic used to make some absolute corkers, huh? They've finally found their way back in the spotlight with Age Of Empires VI, but if you were kicking about the RTS space in the 00s, they were akin to gods. Between Homeworld's space opera spectacle and Warhammer 40k: Dawn Of War's grimdark bombast, they somehow found time to make a little series of down-to-earth tactics games…

Tiny Islands lets you pen the perfect archipelago

Maps are brilliant. Turning complex landscapes into a flat series of sharp lines and abstract symbols is an art, and I've come to love poring over a good atlas as much as slapping together a fictional world map of my own. David King's free map-maker Tiny Islands is a delightful little toy for penning your own coastline, using simple puzzling to help build a rustic…

Eve Online’s 10,000 player deathmatch returns this month

Want to know the dark truth behind Eve: Online's infamous mass battles? They're bloody awful spectator sports. CCP's space epic might be equipped to handle six-thousand players, but it's gotta make some serious compromises. At the end of the day, you're watching thousand of blips fire lasers in severe slow-motion. Aether Wars, a cloud-powered spin-off centred solely on these big brutal bashes, has proven twice…

No Players Online offers free spooks on the empty servers of a dead multiplayer game

A shortcut for long-gone mech shooter Hawken sits on my desktop. It's not the real deal, of course. Hawken went offline early last year. What I have, stitched together from salvaged code and networking wizardry, is an abomination. A corpse of a game forced back into life by players who can't let it go. It'll never be alive, but that's not going to stop us…

SkateBird x Jazz Mickle’s Pro Cap Wearer Do A Spoopy Combo is a free feathered fashion show

You've got the moves, but have you got the looks? Aviary kick-flipper SkateBird might be gunning for Tony Hawk's long-vacant throne (with an actual hawk, no less), but you've got to nail more than grinds to take on Pro Skater. It's music, it's attitude, and it's fashion, baby. There's not a 360 nose-grind to be found in SkateBird x Jazz Mickle's Pro Cap Wearer Do…

Costume Quest and Soma are this week’s Epic Games Store freebies

The Epic Games Store has a little Halloween treat for you, with both dress 'em up RPG Costume Quest and grim depths survival game Soma free for the next week. If you're going to grab a freebie for your kiddy-winks, I urge you to be very careful with your clicks or prepare for some long nights ahead. Epic also just announced a few new additions…

Places returns with a new walking simulator Sketch

Halloween events with spooky ghosts and zombies mark the commercial start of autumn in video games, but what about the simple pleasure of a walk in the woods on a crisp autumn day? That's the real season to me. I am delighted to visit such a place with the latest in JLV's Places, a series of wee free walking simulators which capture places, times, and…

Crusader Kings 2 is free now

To start their annual fanfest PDXCON off with a bang (or at least an "Ooh!"), Paradox are now offering Crusader Kings 2 for free. It seems to be free forever? [Update: yes, it is.] If you've not yet tried to form your own medieval dynasty and found yourself undone by intrigue, backstabbing, and your own damn foolishness, you're missing out. Expansions are not included in…

Observer and Alan Wake’s American Nightmare are this week’s Epic Games Store giveaways

It's Thursday again, meaning its time for Epic's ongoing cycle of free games to tick over once again. This week's offerings are grimy cyberpunk horror Observer and bizarre spin-off Alan Wake's American Nightmare. That'll be that sorted for some low-lit thrills, then. As per, you've only got seven days to grab these freebies before they slink back into the shadows from whence they came.

Feature: Spooky - not scary.

Priceless Play – 12 October 2019

These days I love horror. However, I haven't always been a fan of all things spooky, scary, and skeleton-related. There was a brief period of time (I call this time "childhood") where even catching so much as a glimpse of a horror film would give me nightmares. Then my older brother brought home the game Fatal Frame. As the neighbourhood kids and I watched him…

Fortnite teases a clean slate with leaks for Fortnite: Chapter 2

Fortnite's had a good run. Since an admittedly awkward 2017 launch, it's become this cultural behemoth, completely unparseable yet unstoppably popular. But it's acquired some bloat over those two years - Map locations have vanished, reappeared and warped in and out. Weapons and gimmicks have floated in and out of an interdimensional vault, a vault intimately tied to the battle royale's ongoing plot. That's plenty…

Surviving Mars is now free on the Epic Games Store

The latest game giveaway on the Epic Games Store is Surviving Mars, 2018's city-builder about raising Martian colonies from dust. Yes, absolutely this process involves a large number of potatoes. The Space Race expansion is free too, as is the wee musical Marsvision Song Contest DLC (sadly just more soundtrack songs, not an actual contest - I wish!). You've got one week to get onboard…
