Cuisine Royale is battle royale about wearing a kitchen

We’ve all thought it: what if we could cover our entire body in Plunkbat’s stalwart frying pan? Why should we be limited to covering just our posterior, when surely the rest of us is just as in need of protection. That’s the premise behind Darkflow Software’s April Fools' gag, which has since been transformed into a proper game, Cuisine Royale. Hunt down 99 other people,…

War Thunder storms the ’80s with a new graphics engine

Despite Gaijin's free-to-play omni-sim War Thunder starting out exclusively as a game of World War 2 aerial combat, recent years have seen it take the fight to Wargaming's rolling festival of tankitude, World of Tanks, offering its own accessible yet semi-realistic take on armored ground battles. Sneaking in just a week before World of Tanks' v1.0 overhaul, War Thunder has refreshed itself with a shiny new…

Ride eternal, shiny and chrome: Crossout hits open beta

Online post-apocalyptic car combat game Crossout has left paid early access and rolled into free-to-play open beta. Crossout lets players build their own scrapcars then drive into battle with PvE missions and PvP action. Our boy Brendy had a play during the early access days and dug the core of it, though not the grind. I guess we'll see how much has changed over the…

War Thunder leaves open beta, officially released

Back when simulated man Tim Stone declared War Thunder [official site] one of the best sims, it wasn't even out of beta. Now, after four years in open beta, Gaijin Entertainment have declared their free-to-play aeroplane-a-tank battler is... well, not done, but officially 'released' and out of beta. War Thunder is still missing several long-planned features, like proper shipfights, but they are coming.

War Thunder Gets Chilly New Update

World War II multiplayer plane-o-tank battler War Thunder [official site], which sadly bears no relation to Tropic Thunder, has received a big new update. Titled Cold Steel, it brings a veritable armament of changes and improvements, 20 new vehicles, and everything in between. Before we launch into the nitty-gritty, come watch the pretty trailer first.

Platform Wars: War Thunder Connecting PC And PS4

Which is better, PC or PlayStation 4? There's only one way to settle this: realising that it's a daft question and a petty argument entirely unworthy of your precious time. Why war over platforms when you can war across platforms? War Thunder is bringing PC and PlayStation 4 together for a spot of friendly murdering, introducing cross-platform multiplayer "very, very soon." Why bicker when you…

War Thunder Rolls Out Ground Forces Open Beta

Everything I know about tanks, I learned from Brendan. My understanding is that tanks are big and made of metal and that some people like them quite a lot. So huzzah! After being in paid beta for a while, War Thunder's tank-adding expansion Ground Forces has launched into open beta. Watching the launch trailer, I am intrigued to discover that the pokey-out bit on a…

Like Angry Houses? War Thunder: Ground Forces Beta Keys

War Thunder: Ground Forces is rolling towards an open beta, but for now the competitive multiplayer game remains open only to those who have a key. We have keys. Would you like a key? There are 3000 keys. War Thunder is like World of Tanks but with planes; small arenas, short matches, free-to-play, and a persistent tech tree to advance through with your hard-won XP.…

Feature: Your Questions, Panzered

Hands On: War Thunder Ground Forces Closed Beta

So, here's a quick refresher: World of Tanks had tanks and War Thunder had planes, and then World of Warplanes had planes so now War Thunder Ground Forces, currently in closed beta, has both tanks and planes fighting in the same world. I feel like these free-to-play World War II MMOs are in an arms race, and soon they'll be adding submarines and blimps and,…

War Thunder: Ground Forces Beta Advances, Storms Rezzed

The chaps over at Gaijin Entertainment are still waxing their moustaches and sewing cool patches onto their jackets, not quite yet ready to roll out War Thunder's tank-adding expansion Ground Forces. This weekend they plan to invite "a really large number" of new players to join the closed beta testing, rewarding pilots who've been completing daily tasks in the base game. Oh, life's always easier for…

Open Your Wallet For War Thunder’s Ground Forces Beta

"Load the platinum cannons with the world's largest diamond!" *Ker-chunk* "Loaded, sir! But we don't have anything to fire it at." "You're right, Jiggingtons! We've already blasted a hole where the Mona Lisa's smile should be, and knocked the arms off the Venus de Milo. I need to purchase more art to destroy. Gentlemen, stand down. Amuse yourselves while I'm at the super-secret auction." "Expositionally…

The Star’s The Star: Star Conflict

Can this really be the first game called Star Conflict? The ten seconds of research I applied to the question suggests that it is. Amazing. Anyway, this space combat game from Gaijin is looking interesting. It's a Russian MMO heading to the west, and it sits roughly along the lines of World Of Tanks or Mechwarrior Online, only this time you're a space pilot with…

Sky Battles Afoot: World Of Planes Trailer

Oh this could get awkward. Wargaming.net recently announced World Of Warplanes to join World Of Tanks and the forthcoming World Of Battleships. But it seems another MMO already had a very similar idea. The imaginatively titled World Of Planes from Gaijin Entertainment was first announced in April, and has a debut trailer out today. In a world where you can't have The Elder Scrolls V:…
