Thousands perish in Elite Dangerous expedition, but survivors reach the edge of the galaxy

Whoa. I was too distracted during the disgusting month of E3 to pay attention to what really matters: the space news. The Elite Dangerous expedition which saw 13,000 players set out to cross the galaxy in a long trip has finally ended after six months. Just over one quarter of those explorers touched down at Beagle Point last month, which is practically the furthest you…

Elite Dangerous to get fleet carriers and new premium currency

Warframe wasn't the only game to have a fan event this weekend. July 5th-7th was also Lavecon, Elite Dangerous's smaller fan gathering. To coincide, Frontier revealed details of their coming September and December updates. The former is introducing a new premium currency and a revised start for new players, while a trailer showed the latter's fleet carrier ships for the first time.

E3 2019 games – every game confirmed

They just keep coming don't they? A lot of games were announced at E3 2019, things that we didn't know about, as well as stuff that's previously announced, or expansions to already released games. Now, to the casual outsider, what we're doing might seem absolutely nuts, but we thought we'd put together an alphabetical list of all the PC games that have been confirmed to…

Planet Zoo has a new trailer, a release date, and a lot of potential

Over in LA, Frontier Developments have just shown the latest trailer for their upcoming menagerie-’em-up Planet Zoo, as well as setting a launch date for November 5th - and it’s looking very powerful indeed. I’ll be straightforward with you here: with the exception of the extremely relaxing Megaquarium, I’ve always been disappointed by zoo games. And that’s not because I’m not into the concept. I…

Planet Coaster’s Ghostbusters expansion lets you monetise the afterlife

If there's something strange in you neighbourhood, who you gonna call? The local news, maybe you can get on the telly. An invisible man sleeping in your bed? There's a unique feature sure to draw attention when you Airbnb your flat! If you've had a dose of a freaky ghost baby? That can bootstrap a new career as an influencer. So if ghosts are haunting…

Feature: From the makers of Planet Coaster

Planet Zoo is a promising zoo game and an exhilarating philosophical nightmare

They say you should never ask how the sausage is made, but in the case of Frontier's Planet Zoo, knowing how the game's creatures were created makes all the difference. Specifically, it's the difference between two kinds of game. On the one hand, a handsome, top-down management sim in which players breed and nurture pleasingly unruly animals for the delight and education of a rosy-cheeked…

Happy birthday to you: Planet Zoo coming from Planet Coaster studio

After having us build theme parks to house dinosaurs in Jurassic World: Evolution and for mechanical snakes in Planet Coaster, Frontier Developments are focusing on cuddlier lifeforms in their next management sim. Today they announced Planet Zoo, which will let us build and run zoos with lions and tigers and bears, oh my! We saw a preview version and will have more to say about…

Elite Dangerous’ next update wants to help onboard new players

The next update for vast space simulator Elite Dangerous should make things a bit easier for land-lubbers who want to get their space legs for the first time. A new zone for beginners, simpler early missions, and new ship modules to automate docking and entering orbit are all among the slate of changes lined up for release on Tuesday, April 23rd.

I flew to the centre of the galaxy in Elite Dangerous, only to find it overrun with criminals

It has been two months since I set off to reach the centre of the galaxy. I’m happy to report that I made it. For those not following my adventures, I’m part of the Distant Worlds 2 expedition, a ragtag group of Elite Dangerous explorers who have set out to cross the galaxy and construct a new space station at its core, a safe haven…

Frontier are making a mysterious new licensed game, and I bet I know what

Frontier Developments, the makers of Elite Dangerous and Jurassic World Evolution, have big news. The news is so big they can't tell us how big it is. Frontier have, they proudly announced today, "signed a major global IP licence to develop and publish a future game." That's right: a major, global, intellectual property licence. Which one? Oh don't worry about that. To make what game?…

Elite Dangerous player stranded for three months has been rescued

An Elite Dangerous pilot who was stranded in the void beyond the galaxy has been rescued by a group of interstellar breakdown mechanics. Commander “Deluvian” was stuck in space, 141 lightyears from the galactic disc players normally try to stick to, all because he’d sipped too greedily from one of his fuel tanks. But as we reported last week, a rescue mission was underway, with…

Elite Dangerous pilot stranded in void for nearly three months is due to be rescued

A pilot in Elite Dangerous has been stranded in the deep black void beyond the known galaxy for months. The adventurous pilot, commander “Deluvian Reyes Cruz”, zoomed off the edge of the galactic disc in an attempt to set a new record and become the person who has travelled the furthest distance from Sol. But when he was nearing the point of no return, he…

Elite Dangerous pilots are crossing a dangerous galaxy, and I’m going with them

Two weeks ago, a fleet of over 13,000 players of Elite Dangerous set out on a long journey to cross the galaxy. Our flyboy Corey Milne was among them. Asteroid bases always make me feel uneasy. We’re sitting inside a hollowed-out rock, with a single entry gate separating our fragile, oxygen-dependent bodies from the cold vacuum of space. It just doesn’t sit well with me.…

Huge space fleet suffers over 30 deaths shortly after launch of Elite Dangerous exploration trip

Space is big, we’re often told. But it’s also a bit of a dick. Over 30 ships are reported to have perished in one star system, known as The View, just days into a months-long expedition organised by Elite Dangerous players. This star system is called 'The View' because you can get some stunning galactic photos from one of its planets. But that planet also…

Jurassic World Evolution mutates with a major update and its first paid DLC

I'd somehow never noticed it until now, but Jurassic World Evolution's dinosaurs would only ever rest if they were on death's door. As of today's patch - update 1.5 - the sun will now set on the dino-park sim, the big lizards will take a kip and hang out with their reptilian pals when they wake, as detailed in the patch notes here. Still, if…

Have You Played… Planet Coaster?

Ahhh management games. Aaahh building games. Ahhh roller coasters. Planet Coaster is easily one of my favourite games in which to waste about 300 hours at a time. I’m only slightly exaggerating. I was a bit late to the party with Planet Coaster, but once you finally buy your ticket, there’s no going back. It’s so easy to get lost in the worlds you can…

Jurassic World Evolution patch adds more sandbox options and a high-stakes Challenge Mode

Dino-park management sim Jurassic World Evolution was great at capturing the visual style of the films, but that John Hammond experience of hubris and greed causing inevitable disaster? Absent. Yesterday's update to the game addresses that - while it adds a few things to the game's extra-relaxing sandbox mode, it also introduces Challenge Mode, a new way to play, unlocked from the start. You've got…

Jurassic World Evolution hatches a toothsome new Challenge mode next month

As authentic as dino-park management sim Jurassic World Evolution looked and sounded, it was ironically a bit toothless, so said Fraser Brown in his review. While it tried to nudge players into creative park designs and risky moves through its staff division system, there was little incentive to take absurd, John Hammond-like risks. That may change soon. Headed to the game on September 13th is…

Elite Dangerous update launches two new ships, but space legs still nowhere in sight

Elite Dangerous is giving its pilots more space goodies today, including two new rustbuckets to whoosh around in its galactic theatre of lasers. This is part of the second update for their latest season of treats, Beyond (free to those who already own the last big expansion, Horizons). Basically: you astrobods are getting new spaceships to fly and new aliens to blow up. But this…

Jurassic World Evolution stomps out today

Frontier's dinopark-building management sim Jurassic World Evolution launched this morning, I'll remind you in case the waves of E3 announcements mean you forget games can even come out in 2018. It's a bit disappointing, our Jurassic World Evolution review will tell you, especially in comparison to Frontier's Planet Coaster, but you might still fancy it? It does, at the very least, have pretty dinosaurs.
