Mutant Year Zero: Road To Eden expands moosewards in June

Mutant Year Zero: Road To Eden was one of the nicest surprises of last year's tail-end. A whip-smart mix of '80s post-apocalyptic RPG (using an old pen-and-paper setting), real-time stealth and tense XCOM-inspired turn-based combat. The only common complaint levelled against it is that it was too short. Today, developers The Bearded Ladies announced a partial solution to that, in the form of Seed Of…

Conan Unconquered explains what is best in a siege

We're just five weeks from the launch of Conan Unconquered, Petroglyph's 'survival strategy' game based on the famous barbarian fantasy setting. Up until now we've only had brief glimpses at how it actually works, though. We know it's a traditional RTS (albeit single-player/co-op focused) by an experienced studio, but we haven't seen much of what sets it apart. Today's video breaks down its systems, including…

Moons Of Madness will haunt this Halloween

The sci-fi first-person spooker Moons Of Madness has reemerged from its dark development cave after a year scratching runes into the wall with splintered fingernails, now aiming to launch around Halloween 2019. And it's also now quietly tied into the spooky-ooky stories of The Secret World, thanks to finding a publisher in the form of Funcom. Observe, a new trailer hinting at spookies including someone…

They Are Barbarillions: peek at Conan Unconquered

What is best in life? If you answered "To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women," mate, calm down. No, what's best in life isn't invading, conquering, or pillaging, it's having a nice little sit-down without anyone tromping all over your lawn. That's the calmer pace of life Conan the Sedentarian seeks in Conan Unconquered, the…

Humble Monthly offers Fighting, Sneaking and Viking for cheap

Another impressive month of deals in the Humble Monthly - I'm impressed at how consistently good Humble's subscribe-o-bundle has been this past year, and the next set headlines with a trio of gems. Northgard, Mutant Year Zero: Road To Eden and Absolver cover a wide spread of genres, but all three games are united by one common thread; they all got free expansions recently. You…

All and sundry are now invited to try out 2018's delightful tactics 'em up for free, sneaking and shooting through the post-apocalyptic wasteland full of mutants…

Bunch of Herberts: Funcom making several Dune games

Frank Herbert's sci-fi world of vast sand worms and magical spacedrugs and political intrigue and swordfights and Kyle MacLachlan with a pet spacepug and Sting posing in his pants is being digitised again. Funcom, the Norwegian crew behind Conan Exiles and The Secret World, today announced that they're planning to make several video games based on Dune. We best know Dune round these parts for…

Conan Unconquered is an RTS coming from Petroglyph

Conan's gamelords Funcom have announced that the barbarian's fantasy land is to host a real-time strategy game, Conan Unconquered, made by Petroglyph Games. Petroglyph the studio founded by several former Command & Conquer folks, who've since come on to make games including Grey Goo and Star Wars: Empire At War. Conan Unconquered sounds a curious one, with base-building and wall-raising and armies and all that...…

Feature: Turn-based Stalker, with ducks

Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden review

There are at least 99 ways this could have gone horribly wrong. XCOM-ish turn-based action in an apparently shameless borrow from STALKER’s setting, but starring a talking pig and duck? An overwhelmingly nihilistic tone, but also endless use of the ‘duck sounds a bit like another, naughtier word’ gag? Even the name, Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden, has that algorithmically-generated SEO jank vibe to…

Conan Exiles thrives in the wastes and continues to grow

Crom would be pleased to see a game as scrappy as Conan Exiles doing so well. Developer/publisher Funcom declared today that the barbarian fantasy survival sandbox is their fastest-selling game to date, now having shifted 1.4 million copies in total. The studio aren't resting on their laurels either, announcing some new Roman-themed cosmetic DLC, along with reiterating their promise of major free updates to the…

Mutant Year Zero is looking great in its new trailer

If you’ve not had time to sit down and watch the 30 minute Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden demo from March, you’re missing out on wise-cracking ducks and XCOM-like post-apocalyptic tactics. You’re busy, though. I understand. And there are so many games to look at. Good news, then: Mutant Year Zero’s first game footage trailer is out, clocking in at a brisk 1:26. Slap…

Conan Exiles slashes out of early access

Fantasy sandbox survive 'em up Conan Exiles left early access and launched properly yesterday, and evidently it proved more popular than developers Funcom had anticipated. With the game peaking at almost 29,000 concurrent players yesterday and official servers filling up, Funcom hastily launched extra servers - and it sounds like more might still be needed. Turns out, people quite like the idea of building settlements,…

Improved performance, server wipes, price hikes when Conan Exiles exits early access next month

Open-world survival affair/one-eyed trouser-snake simulator Conan Exiles has spent over a year in early access, initially hitting it big thanks to a combination of brutal low-fantasy setting and a whole lot of hullabaloo about winkies. Its full release is almost upon us - 14 months is a pretty brisk turnaround as these things go, especially given that devs Funcom reckon the game's doubled in size…

Secret World Legends’ Dawn of the Morninglight expansion released

Nine months after its free-to-play reboot as Secret World Legends, Funcom's globe-trotting MMO of modern myth and magic finally has a second new location to explore. For those who have finished the main story and are hungry for more, you've got a new assignment out in South Africa, and giant glowing hyenas are probably the lesser evil out there compared to the Morninglight cult.

Watch half an hour of Mutant Year Zero’s manimal tactics

A duck, a pig and a human walk into a store. They buy several grenades and a top hat for the duck which gives him +10% to ranged damage. You were expecting a punchline? We've covered a bit of tabletop RPG turned tactical hybrid  Mutant Year Zero: Road To Eden before, but previously we only had a CGI teaser trailer and a few screenshots to…

Secret World Legends is off to South Africa next

Secret World Legends is off to South Africa in its next big update, the first new land added to the supernatural MMORPG in yeeaars. While Funcom's recent free-to-play revamp-o-relaunch of The Secret World initially focused on rolling out old areas, now they're ready for new adventures with new mythologies. Old mythologies? New old mythologies. I still haven't gotten around to revisiting this pleasant spookworld after…

Now it's the turn of the Manhattan Exclusion Zone, a 10-person raid that happens directly under Times Square. Any…
