Doom Eternal’s Ancient Gods DLC won’t require the base game

Doom Eternal's upcoming DLC might take place in the immediate wake of the base campaign, but that doesn't mean you'll need to have actually played it. Arriving this October, Id Software this weekend confirmed that you'll be able to pick up the first bit of two-part romp The Ancient Gods without having actually bought the base game, letting you jump straight into the deicidal carnage.

Elusive fox adventure Tunic is playable this weekend

It's been a minute, eh Tunic? For as long as I've been paying attention, Andrew Shouldice's sharp, foxy roll n' slash has been hiding in the bushes. Ever-present, yet always skittering just out of sight. But while Tunic may be no closer to an eventual release, you can play a bit of it right now thanks to a free Gamescom demo.

Ever wondered what it'd be like if Pokemon's perpetually-childish heroes settled down to start a farm? Lucky for you, that's exactly the premise of Monster Harvest. Sowing its first seeds this week, Maple Powered Games' upcoming crop punctuates Stardew Valley's pastoral life sim with brutal fights between half-plant, half-animal hybrids called Planimals. Geddit?

Serious Sam 4 will let you pilot the Pope’s personal mech

I had heard that Serious Sam 4 would let us drive a Popemobile. I had not heard that the Popemobile in question is a giant heavily-armed mech whose boot-up sequence dialogue concludes, "All systems ready. Let God sort them out." A new trailer hot out of Gamescom today shows the Popemobile in action, smashing a tentacle monster in the middle Vatican City and alright, yup,…

Lemnis Gate is a tactical FPS about fighting inside time loops

Time loop games seem to be all the rage right now don't they? You've got stuff like Arkane's Deathloop and Luis Antonio's 12 Minutes, and now the upcoming FPS Lemnis Gate, which we saw a shiny new trailer for during Gamescom Opening Night Live. It's a strategic first-person shooter in which players duke it out across five turns which each take place in a 25-second…

Gamescom’s indie booth has gone virtual this year as a free browser MMO

Gamescom 2020 has kicked off, though of course it's not exactly taking place in a crowded hall in Germany this year. The Indie Arena booth has adapted somewhat like other virtual offerings the A Maze festival and Devolverland Expo from earlier in the FakE3 summer. The Indie Arena is now a quite neat browser MMO where you can check out trailers and demos for a huge harvest…

Observer: System Redux confirmed for PC, and it has a demo now

As a nice little Gamescom surprise, Bloober Team today announced that Observer: System Redux will also be coming to PC. The original Observer from 2017 was a lovely little cyberpunk horror game starring Rutger "crying in the shower" Hauer, and the upcoming System Redux is an expanded and prettied-up version - but was only announced for next-gen consoles. Well, Bloober today not only confirmed a…

Little Nightmares 2 is coming in February, looking nightmarish

The horribly squidgy world of tiny tots and giant cannibals will call us back for Little Nightmares 2 on the 11th of February, 2021, Bandai Namco announced today. The first game was wonderfully unpleasant and yup, the puzzle-platforming horror sequel looks it too.

Rejoice! Absolute classic citybuilder Pharaoh is getting a remake next year

It seems a developer has managed to leverage two bits of my Ancient Egypt-related childhood nostalgia in one go today. Triskell Interactive and publisher Dotemu used an animated trailer that reminds me of famous Val Kilmer musical Prince Of Egypt to announced a 2021 remake of absolute stone cold classic citybuilder Pharaoh. Well played. Pharaoh: A New Era was revealed as part of Gamescom this…

Fuzzy freelance coppers-for-hire Sam & Max are back from their ten-year hiatus. They're getting a new game, see - and for this case, you'll need a big plastic headset strapped to your noggin. Announced during tonight's Gamescom festivities, Sam & Max: This Time It's Virtual will let you join the duo as a nameless third wheel sometime next year.

Bridge Constructor: The Walking Dead exists, but mostly in live-action trailer form

What's more stressful than constructing a shonky haphazard bridge? Why, constructing a shonky haphazard bridge while zombies attack, of course! Developers ClockStone and publishers Headup Games revealed Bridge Constructor: The Walking Dead today at Gamescom Opening Night Live, with a live-action teaser trailer and so little else that the Steam store page just has screenshots from the production of that teaser trailer. Cliff notes are:…

Time loop game 12 Minutes features Willem Dafoe, Daisy Ridley, and James McAvoy

Remember that time loop game 12 Minutes? It's the one where a couple are hanging out in their dimly-lit apartment, reliving a rather unpleasant home invasion over and over again. Cheery game. Well, it turns out that home invader is played by none other than Willem Dafoe, the wife is played by Daisy Ridley, and the husband is played by James McAvoy. What a cast!…
