Horizon: Zero Dawn may reportedly be heading to PC this year

Like many of you, I've never felt the impact of a steel bow pierce cyborg velociraptor flesh. I've never climbed one of Horizon: Zero Dawn's whopping great brontosaurus with a flying saucer for a head. No, I've only watched our oft-absent PlayStation-owning flatmate steal through the tall grass, watching from the doorway, thinking "cor, that looks alright." Horizon: Zero Dawn was going to be one…

Confirmed: Valve will reveal “flagship VR game” Half-Life: Alyx this Thursday

Update: The rumour was true, but the date was wrong. Valve have tweeted that they're going to unveil Half-Life: Alyx, their "flagship VR game", this Thursday at 10am Pacific/6pm GMT. This will be the first official Half-Life game since Half-Life 2: Episode 2 was released twelve years ago, in 2007. And that's all we know for now. Original story: Right, time to grab all the…

BioWare are far from done with Anthem, according to a new report

You'd be forgiven for thinking that BioWare are leaving Anthem to slowly rot, considering Fort Tarsis is filled with bones, and there has been little in the way of new content outside of the recent Halloween event, Season of Skulls. But a new rumour now suggests that BioWare are planning a revival. Much more than the upcoming Christmas event, Icetide, and more akin to "a…

Rumour: Overwatch 2 will have more PvE and be playable at BlizzCon this week

ESPN, "the leading multinational, multimedia sports entertainment entity"*, have apparently got their hands on Blizzard's Overwatch 2 notes. They've got a source and a training document that say the game will be revealed at BlizzCon later this week, and will include "PvE features" involving "in-game items" and "hero talents". This gels with a report from 5 months back, plus it's a pretty logical move. Still,…

Ice Ice Maybe: something cold could be coming to Apex Legends

Morning Apeleggers. Can you sense that? Something in the air? It's got a bite to it. As colder seasons approach our feeble human bodies, a puddle of evidence suggests the chill is also about to hit Apex Legends. Some say it heralds an entirely new map, on the far flung reaches of a new planet called Psamathe. More cautious folk, myself included, just reckon it's…

Red Dead Redemption 2 may finally be moseying onto PC, suggests Australian ratings board

Rating boards are the bane of games publishers. They're a law unto themselves, with no care for publishers' plans to drip feed us game release details. No. They tell it like it is, to hang with the consequences. And the Australian Classification Board’s website has just heroically listed a new version of Red Dead Redemption 2, hinting that it could be on its way to…

Lovers of violent neon soap operas, rejoice. Yakuza Kiwami 2, the open world crime caper about a good dad who punches bad, is coming to PC.

Microsoft may be tinkering with playing Xbox One games on Windows

Microsoft may be experimenting with bringing support for Xbox One games to PC, or so suspect cybersleuths poking around in recent test versions of Windows 10. Microsoft have released Windows 10 editions of all their own Xbone games for several years now but if this turns out to be what some suspect, Windows may in future directly support any and all Xbox One games. Maybe.…

Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines sequel might be sneaking up on us at GDC

The blood moon rises. The elders at RPS have reported feeling twinges in their necks and a mild taste of iron in their mouths. In other words, a sequel to early 2000s neckbiter RPG Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines might be announced at the Game Developers Conference next month. The heavy teasing of an alternate reality game has been traced back to Paradox Interactive (the…

Bethesda deny Fallout 76 free-to-play rumour

Bethesda have denied a rumour that Fallout 76 is preparing to go free-to-play. Launched in November 2018, their multiplayer survival sandbox scored a 'noncommittal, wavy gesture of the hands and forearms accompanied by an exclamatory exhalation' out of 10, a score further lessened by bugs and leaking personal information and bugs and skimping on the £175 edition. While the rumour was based on hearsay and…

EA reportedly cancels Star Wars game for a second time

Remember that ill-fated Star Wars game codenamed ‘Ragtag’ that was being made by Dead Space developers Visceral? It was supposed to be an Uncharted-inspired single player action adventure, helmed by Amy Hennig, director of the first three Drake ‘em ups. But it got cancelled (amid various development problems) and the whole project was thrown to Canadian studio EA Vancouver who were then told to make…

Rumour-o-rama: Battlefield V revisiting WW2 this year

How do war game makers pick which war to fight in their next game? It's a little-known fact that the games industry unites every year to settle this by drawing balls. It's important that games don't all pick the same war, after all, and draws were deemed the best method after several disastrous years of paintball tournaments. Call of Duty got the much-coveted World War…

Rumour: BioWare’s Anthem delayed into 2019

While BioWare's new sci-fi persistent open-world multiplayer shooter doodad Anthem is officially due to launch this autumn, several secret sources tell Kotaku that the game is now likely delayed into early 2019. Speaking anonymously (the industry is not remotely fond of leakers, after all), they say that BioWare are shifting almost everyone to focus on Anthem, and... there are more whispers about the game's progress,…
