Feature: What's behind curtain number two?

‘We’re trying to understand that the market has changed’ – Radical Heights dev on the lesson of LawBreakers

I’m hiding in a bush when a man in a garish tracksuit runs past. The fool. I step out and spray him with bullets from an uzi. He’s dead in a second, exploding like a piñata into a shower of guns ‘n’ goodies. I’ve reached the final 20 survivors, and yup, Radical Heights is a battle royale, no doubt about it. But this rough and…

LawBreakers devs step away to tease Double Dudes

Boss Key Productions are stepping back from their gravity-bending FPS LawBreakers, at least for a while, because it simply didn't make enough money to fund the post-launch support they'd planned. That's not surprising to hear, given that last month the multiplayer game struggled to muster 25 players online at the same time. Boss Key mention the prospect of turning LawBreakers free-to-play but it doesn't sound…

Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies gets Minecrafty

No one believes me when I say Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies is fascinating. Nexon's free-to-play spin-off uses good ol' CS 1.6 as the foundation for what feels like a self-contained mod scene, throwing in oddities including a base-building cooperative survival mode, humans vs. zombies modes, football, arena boss battles with giant monsters, races, a mode similar to Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory, and so very many 'sexy' ladies.…

All updates will be free and the first – due later this month – will include a map called Namsan, a new temporary team deathmatch mode, and some extra tutorials to make it easier for new players to…

That's a hot slap of news out of E3 today. LawBreakers draws on Bleszinski's years working on Unreal Tournament while at Epic, then whacks it with class-based characters (do we…

Ghost In The Shell: First Assault Slips Into Open Beta

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex - First Assault Online [official site] is a long name. Too long, in fact, so I'm going to call it by the more palatable acronym GITS-SAC-FAO for the rest of this article. Anyway, GITS-SAC-FAO has left paid Early Access and is in free-to-play open beta ahead of a full free-to-play launch this week.

Riders of Icarus Beta Lets You Tame Dragons, Realize Your Wildest High-Fantasy Dreams

Did you know that Riders of Icarus [official site] was getting an open beta test this week? Me neither. Apparently, it's your typical free-to-play Korean fantasy MMORPG, and it's now open to the public. There is one enticing twist, though. Riders of Icarus lets you tame, ride, and fight mystical beasts, including dragons. Sold! What's that? Becoming the veritable mother of dragons doesn't quite do…

Feature: A big bag of odd mods

Have You Played… Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. If you ever enjoyed digging through Fileplanet or the PC Gamer cover disc, playing every strange little Half-Life or Quake mod you could find, I think you might quite enjoy Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies [Steam page]. No, no hear me out. Nexon's free-to-play spin-off…

Riders of Icarus Is Like A Pokemon MMO But Also Not

At first glance, Riders of Icarus [official site] reminds me of a time when painting fantasy art on the side of vans was a thing. It also looks like another action MMO teeming with fantastical landscapes and even more fantastical creatures that wander around them in small clumps waiting to be converted into experience points. And, to be honest, it's probably still got a lot…

CliffyB’s LawBreakers To “Dial Up The Maturity”

No Nexus platform, fewer microtransactions, and fewer colours: these were the main points of the GDC panel held by Cliff Bleszinski and his Boss Key Productions about their multiplayer shooter LawBreakers [official site]. The game will be released exclusively on Steam, with an upfront purchase and their latest screenshots showcase a change in visual direction away from the colourful and cartoony look of some of…

Premature Evaluation: Ghost in the Shell Standalone Complex – First Assault Online

Each Monday, Rob Zacny sorts through the complexities of Early Access to see which games are ready to stand alone. The question I keep coming back to is 'why this game?' I understand why someone would want a game based on Ghost in the Shell: Standalone Complex, the sci-fi police procedural version of the classic film. Standalone Complex takes all those tantalizing details from the…

Ghost In The Shell: First Assault Trailer Uncloaks

If you want fun cyberpunk multiplayer tactical FPS action now, I'll point you towards the free Source mods Dystopia and Neotokyo. If you want to cling to the hope that someone will one day make a good Ghost in the Shell game and maybe, just maybe, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex – First Assault Online [official site] could be that game, mate, I'm…

Rocket Jumps And Grappling Hooks In LawBreakers Vid

I lost interest during the announcement of Cliff Bleszinski's new shooter LawBreakers [official site] when the former Epic chap's livestreamed reveal-o-rama went into guff about criminals and cops and law-breaking and the future and the moon and... oh, I didn't care. I closed the stream. However! Watching its 'gameplay reveal' trailer, I discover that the arena FPS has gnarly-looking energy grappling hooks to whip you…

Bleszinski's Boss Key and publisher Nexon have launched a teaser site called The Shattering with a countdown, which currently has two days, six hours, 37 minutes and 33 seconds left to go.

Grrgkk! Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies Big Update Out

The first time I tried this, you didn't believe me. I'll try again: play Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies [official site] to marvel at the weird grab bag of modes Nexon have smashed into a free-to-play version of Valve's dear FPS. You'll find survival with scavenging and base-building, arena battles with floods of monsters and huge bosses, racing a chasing horde, Splash Damage-style vehicle escorting, co-op story…

London Calling: Dirty Bomb Enters Open Beta Next Week

Dirty Bomb [official site] is Splash Damage's third game building on the wonderful Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory, following the so-so Quake Wars: Enemy Territory and Brink. This time, the class-based, objective-driven multiplayer team FPS action is headed to my fair city of London, where the detonation of several dirty bombs means you can walk through Borough Market without having to literally punch the teeth out of…

Ghost In The Shell Online Uncloaking This Year

Do I think Ghost in the Shell Online [official site] will be good? No, not really. Am I able to resist posting about rad cyborg ladies able to tear tanks apart with their cyberhands? No, not really. Look, here, it's word that South Korean free-to-play developers Nexon are indeed planning a western release for their class-based FPS based on the anime series based on the…
