Sea Of Thieves goes overboard with skeletons in this month’s Fort Of The Damned update

It must be hard to make Halloween updates for a game where most enemies are swashbuckling skeletons. But that's just what Sea Of Thieves is trying to do with Fort Of The Damned, October's harrowing Halloween twist on Rare's sea shanty. With a damnable new castle and skinless pets, Sea Of Thieves wants to make sure your timbers have thoroughly shivered.

Feature: You can probably learn a lot about me from these 1.14 Minecraft seeds

The best Minecraft seeds 1.14 – Minecraft 1.14 & 1.15 seeds list with Amidst screenshots

Kids these days just don't seem to realise that Minecraft seeds are far more than just the string of characters that make up your Minecraft world: they're a form of artistic expression. After all, whatever you type into that unassuming black box at the start of a new 1.14 world will determine your entire experience! Given their importance, why leave the game to dredge up…

The best Minecraft skins of the past 10 years (plus download links)

Minecraft skins sure do make for an enticing challenge for designers. The challenge of trying to create a recognisable face or to properly portray certain types of clothing using just a tiny grid of pixels. It's been pretty incredible to see some of the things that various Minecraft players and communities have created over the past 10 years, so we've collated 64 of the best…

Feature: Minecraft servers have come a long way in 10 years...

The best Minecraft servers 1.14 – Survival servers, Hunger Games, and more

I still remember what Minecraft servers were like back in 2012 and 2013. The vast majority were just survival servers, perhaps with one or two anti-griefing mods installed but nothing more in-depth than that. And one or two big names were just beginning to pave the way for the minigames servers that now utterly dominate the Minecraft servers landscape. But whether you're looking for Hunger…

Feature: Minecraft mods for every mood

The very best Minecraft mods 1.14 (and a few 1.12 mods too)

Minecraft mods have been around very nearly as long as Minecraft itself - and probably most of its players, too. Vanilla Minecraft is all well and good, and Mojang admittedly add more and more new stuff with each major update; but they cannot hope to match even a hundredth of the rate at which the Minecraft community is churning out mods, of all shapes and…

The best Minecraft shaders 1.14

Minecraft shaders, many players believe, force you to choose between a prettier Minecraft and a faster, smoother Minecraft. And that's true, to a certain extent, but there's a wide range of Minecraft shaders out there nowadays, and they occupy the whole spectrum when it comes to performance and optimisation. We've done our best to cover this spectrum with our list of the very best Minecraft…

Feature: Music to your ears

The best game soundtracks you can listen to for free right now

Another month, another big video game publisher puts a great big dollop of video game music online for zero pennies. This time, it's Bandai Namco, who have just uploaded every single Tekken soundtrack onto Spotify because, well, apparently everyone loves Tekken. I've never partaken in a Tekken, but with track names like "Massive Stunner" and "Lonesome City Jazz Party 1st", I'm already 100% convinced the…

Check-in has opened for Microsoft Flight Simulator’s technical alpha

Here's a confession: I actually quite like airports. Yes, they're crowded, and smelly, and charge a 200% markup on an underwhelming coffee, but there's something quietly wonderful about the space-between-countries. Within a few hours, I could be anywhere but here, and all it cost was a gross violation of my privacy and less cash than a British train making the same trip. Thanks, privatisation! This…

Over 112 million dirt enthusiasts are playing Minecraft every month

For whatever reason, Minecraft had a bit of a moment this summer. We got on board ourselves, with Nate setting up a pleasant little RPS server last month. It had been a hot minute since I'd last dived into Minecraft, but we had a proper great time: I helped a hermit rescue dogs from the underworld. Nate insisted I build a colossal airship off some…

Minecraft command list [1.14] – server commands

People have been tinkering with Minecraft commands from the moment they were able to early on in Minecraft's alpha. Since then there have been some incredible feats possible in Minecraft, like creating custom game modes that use Minecraft the template. Without commands, popular game types including "Hunger Games" would likely not exist. Even if your ambitions are more humble, we've put together this collection of…

The buzz about town is that Minecraft just added bees

We no longer have bees in the real-world, the last one having left to fly to its home planet of HV-1 last Tuesday, so Minecraft has memorialised our buzzy buds by adding them as a new mob. The fuzzy little dancers are a neutral mob who’ll happily fill your game with honey for you to enjoy, and have just set up a hive in the…

We’re summoning a ghost to interview the top strategy devs at PAX West

On the night of Friday 30th August, at PAX West in Seattle, RPS will raise the dead. Using techniques too dreadful to comprehend, we shall puncture the mortal veil like a sheet of wet tissue paper, and drag something back from the other side. That spirit will be Ghoastus, the Roman Ghost: our first fully spectral staff writer, and the site’s occasional historical strategy correspondent.…

Games like Fortnite – the best battle royale games you can play right now

Fortnite: Battle Royale, I think it's fair to say, is the standout title of the decade-old battle royale game genre. Not since Minecraft have we seen a game enter the mainstream in this way - but that doesn't mean Fortnite is the only battle royale out there that's worth playing. We'll go over just a few of the very best battle royale games like Fortnite…

Super Duper has gone down the pooper as Minecraft cancels graphics pack

It was E3 in 2017 when Mojang announced that they were going to take the bold, nay daring, step of making Minecraft look good. That step was known as the Super Duper Graphics Pack, which would make the game look like a well-implemented community patch. But yesterday those hopes were dashed on the jagged, aliased edge of a square of stone, as it was announced…

See how Minecraft Earth’s mobs could work on the PC

One of my grander statements about gaming is that, in time, all games and all worlds will be rendered within Minecraft. And I was right because a new mod brings the pigs and chickens of unreleased mobile AR game Minecraft Earth to the PC version of the game, technically rendering Minecraft within Minecraft. I can’t get more righter than that.

Gears 5’s Escape mode has its own map maker

Appropriately enough for a game with a chainsaw as one of its main weapons, Gears 5 will give players the opportunity to do a little DIY. Escape is a cooperative, Hive-bursting PVE mode, enabling teams to stalk through a series of levels and splatter the Swarm, and the map maker will let players customise that carnage. Would you like to know more?

Hounded Out: The adventures of a Minecraft hermit, part one

You may have noticed that some of us have been playing a lot of Minecraft lately, topical, finger-on-the-pulse website that we are. Nate set up an unofficial RPS server, prompting everyone to clack together wood and stone and iron to carve their creative path through the chasm-marked green idyll we appeared in. We'll turn the dangerous ravine into a harmless water feature, the gang said.…
