Godfall digs deep into combat details and weapon types

Up until now, it sure felt like we didn't know a lot about "looter-slasher" Godfall aside from the fact that it's an action game that looks quite colorful and shiny. Well say no more, Gearbox Publishing and Counterplay Games have gone and dumped a whole trove of combat details on the ground. I'm going to spend about as long sorting through information about these various…

Borderlands 3’s next DLC will add a new skill tree for every vault hunter

Borderlands 3 has wrapped its season pass of DLC with Krieg And The Fantastic Fustercluck but oh look, it's not done with updates just yet. Gearbox announced during their PAX Online showcase that there are more paid add-ons yet to come. The next of the bunch won't be a campaign DLC like Krieg and others have been, but it'll add a new game mode and new…

Feature: A bit damp

Risk Of Rain 2 review

I was ready to give up on Risk Of Rain 2. On the face of it that doesn't make much sense, because it's a 3D followup to an excellent platforming roguelike where possibility spills from cascading item combos. It's like if The Binding Of Isaac was a third-person shooter set on an alien planet where dinosaurs, ghosts and automatons team up to kill you. I…

Risk Of Rain 2 leaves early access, under The Captain’s orders

Storm's finally here, folks. Over a year since it hit Steam Early Access, Risk Of Rain 2 is popping on its wellies to brave the rocky seas of a full release. Fortunately, The Captain's on deck as a new playable survivor, steering the frenetic third-person shooter through an ocean of new items, enemies and custom servers to reach its ultimate conclusion - a massive alien…

Risk Of Rain 2 lands with a new survivor, stage and price-tag next month

Now here's a forecast you can rely on. Risk Of Rain 2 is finally leaving early access next month, and besides an increased chance of precipitation, the alien-blasting romp is adding a whole heap of new features on launch. Expect a new survivor, a new stage, a flashy new server browser and, unfortunately, a little bit of a price hike when it arrives on August…

Gearbox are suing 3D Realms over Duke Nukem, again

Law. Law always changes, and it's honestly a bit of a nightmare. Last Friday, Gearbox Software filed a suit against Apogee Software, the owners of Duke Nukem 3D developers* 3D Realms. Gearbox bought the Duke Nukem franchise off 'em back in 2010, and now they're accusing 3D Realms of failing to mention that they didn't own the copyright to some of the game's music. This…

Get a load of Godfall’s shiny weapons in the first gameplay trailer

Upcoming Borderlands-but-fantasy game, Godfall, got it's very first gameplay trailer last night, showing off some heavily armoured knights whacking some monstrous enemies with big old medieval weaponry. Published by Gearbox and developed by Counterplay Games, they describe it as a "looter-slasher", though I suppose it could be a looter-stabber depending on the weapon you choose. But there is a fair bit of slashing involved in…

Risk Of Rain 2 adds a playable lizard-dog

I want to like Risk Of Rain 2 . The 3D sequel to Chancy Precipitation 1 has snazzy music and a weird, varied menagerie of monsters to shoot at. A few more joined the fray in yesterday's Hidden Realms update, along with a playable lizard-dog, dedicated servers, nine new items, and more varied level layouts. It's a meaty and welcome update, though I just played…

Here’s all the news and trailers from the Game Awards

Like a heavily-sponsored Santa Claus, the Game Awards swept in last night and left us a pile of presents to unwrap. If you did the smart thing and slept through the event, you'll have missed a bunch of new announcements. Alice O and Graham did some amazing work in writing up as much as they could as it happened, but a few sly games snuck…

Duelyst developers reveal their new action-RPG, Godfall

After muttering about Godfall for over a year, Duelyst developers Counterplay Games today opened up a little about their upcoming "looter-slasher" action-RPG with a wee trailer at The Game Awards. Godfall has also drawn the attention of Borderlands gang Gearbox, no strangers to looter-thingers themselves. Their publishing arm, Gearbox Publishing, today announced that they've picked this one up and will be helping it towards a…

We Happy Few comes crashing down in final expansion, We All Fall Down

You can only keep a population subdued by state-enforced drugs and totalitarian policing for so long. 60s Brit-hell adventure We Happy Few received its third and final story DLC today, We All Fall Down, and it's tearing the whole cheery facade down. Everything's quite on fire, and new heroine Victoria brings a little bit of Dishonored to the mix with grappling skills that'd make and…

Gearbox and former lawyer settle salacious lawfight

Gearbox Software and their former lawyer, Wade Callender, have called a truce in their salacious public lawfight. The Borderlands 3 studio sued Callender in November 2018, accusing him of not fully repaying a loan and using a business credit card for personal expenses. Callender's January counter-suit shot for the moon. He accused Randy Pitchford of misdeeds including siphoning millions of dollars of bonus money and,…

Duke Nuke 3D composer taking Gearbox, Randy Pitchford, and Valve to court

With a back catalogue including Duke Nukem 3D, Doom, and Wolfenstein 3D, Bobby Prince certainly helped define the sound of much of early 3D shooters. Like most folk, though, I reckon he's also a fan of getting paid for his work. Last week, the musician raised claims that 2016's expanded re-release Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary World Tour included his music without asking nicely beforehand.…

Homeworld 3 is being made by Blackbird Interactive, a studio who were founded by some of the folks who made the original Homeworld at Relic Entertainment then brought the series back with the recent spin-off Homeworld: Deserts Of…

Risk Of Rain 2 spruces up for summer with an autumnal update

Maddeningly compelling co-op looty shooter Risk Of Rain 2 has just rolled out its first major expand-o-patch since it entered early access. Per Hopoo's earlier road-map, The Scorched Acres update adds the gorgeously golden-red hued Scorched Acres map, which are less on fire than the name suggests, a new boss called the Grovetender (who presumably keeps those trees looking lovely) and a new character to…
