World War Z, Tormentor X Punisher and Figment go free on Epic Games this week

Zombies, demons and... music? This week's free rotation on the Epic Games Store is an odd mix-up, that's for sure. You know the drill by now - from today until next Thursday, World War Z, Tormentor X Punisher and Figment are free to keep forever over on Epic. Once Thursday rolls by, it's back to full price they go, replaced in kind by Gone Home…

Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary is now out on PC

Surprise! With little warning, Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary launched on PC today. This is the remake of Bungie's very first game in the first-person shooter series, the one which started Master Ian Chief's adventures on Xbox way back in 2001. I never played it but my god, the things I've heard about its powerful pistol... maybe I'll finally see for myself. It is only £7,…

Spintires follow-up SnowRunner defrosts in time for an April release

Winter might be wrapping up, but it's never too late for an out-of-season blizzard. SnowRunner, arctic follow-up to ponderous mud-crawler Spintires: Mudrunner is bringing the chill back to PC on April 28th. With bigger landscapes, wetter roads and colder bottoms, SnowRunner dares you to turn off the in-car air conditioning and wrap up warm for some slow and steady ice road truckin'.

SnowRunner squeals out of the Spintires garage next year

Spintires: MudRunner is a cludgy delight of a thing, somehow turning the nightmare of getting a vehicle snared in sodden dirt into a puzzle game. It did so well that we're here once again, this time with snow chains wrapped around the tires and a flask of warm tea on the passenger seat. SnowRunner is a bigger, wetter, and colder addition to the surprisingly successful…

World War Z lays out a roadmap full of speedy zombies

World War Z doesn't have an original bone in its body, but I think that's okay, because it's a shameless Left 4 Dead tribute in a world that's been waiting for a sequel for a decade now. As with its primary inspiration, Saber Interactive have some big free updates planned for the game, including new missions, difficulty levels, game modes and features. I admit that…

World War Z out now with L4D-ish zomboshooting

What if Left 4 Dead had a third-person camera, was slightly less fantastical, had less charm and character, and was based on a license years past cultural relevance? It might look a bit like World War Z, a cooperative zomboshooter launched this morning based on the 2013 Brad Pitt movie (not the original 2006 book). That's a bit of a damning summation from me but…

World War Z drops a trailer and lunges towards launch next week

You don't need a zombie plague to turn me into a shambling, groaning husk, just remind me that Left 4 Dead 2 came out nearly a decade ago and I've been waiting forever for a sequel. World War Z, Saber Interactive's game of the film of the barely-related book looks like the next best thing, and it's due out next Tuesday, April 16th. It looks…

World War Z sprints towards an April 16th launch

Just when we thought it was safe, the tide of zombie games returns with renewed ferocity. At least with World War Z, now confirmed for an April 16th launch with a lower-than-average price, looks like Saber Interactive are doing something a bit different. Loosely tied to the Brad Pitt movie and even more loosely to Max Brooks's original book, it's a class-based, mostly co-op shooter.…

World War Z won’t skimp on the zombies in its PvP modes

No, I refuse to do it. I will not use the term 'PvPvZ' to describe World War Z's competitive modes. If we're going to give it a silly name, let's just call this bundle of four-on-four variants 'Team Undeathmatch' instead. Still, nice to see that Saber Interactive's upcoming co-op zombiefest is doing something beyond of its Left 4 Dead-ish inspirations. There's five modes in total…

Quake Champions drops loot boxes and brings back Capture The Flag today

Quake Champions's December update is live, and it's one of the biggest the old-school arena shooter has seen since it entered early access. The much-maligned loot box-based economy of the game is dead, replaced by a linear progression of cosmetic rewards for each character, and extra goodies for those who pick up a Fortnite/Rocket League-styled season pass. They've also brought back Capture The Flag mode…

Quake Champions frags loot boxes and spawns in battle passes

Twitchy old-school arena shooter Quake Champions is the latest competitive game to axe random rewards in favour of a more deterministic reward structure. Outlined here, the free-to-play deathmatch (still technically in early access) will drop loot boxes this month in favour of a Fortnite and Rocket League-esque progression system. Players earn a chain of rewards each three-month season just by playing, or speed things up…

Spintires: MudRunner’s dirty American expansion is out today

Spintires: MudRunner is Euro Truck Simulator for people who want to get caked in mud while they scream at the ground, demanding that it release their hefty vehicle. It’s a filthy game of churning up muck, recklessly charging into rivers and trying to get up slippery slopes while laden with lumber. It’s brilliant. It’s also off to America, which I believe is quite muddy, in…

Spintires: MudRunner churns up American Wilds in October

Imagine taking a holiday from your job as a trucker ploughing through the mud of Russia, packing your bags and flying over to the Americky, booking a car for a road trip through the sights and sounds of the US of A, only to get stuck in the mud there too. This nightmare will become reality in Spintires: MudRunner on October 23rd, the newly-announced release…

Coast down The Molten Falls in Quake Champions update

Quake Champions is a fascinating experiment in remaking a game and trying to make that game both exactly like the original game but just More. The title has been impressively on top of their game, regarding monthly-ish updates and the addition of new characters, maps, and balance tweaks. They've also made the way that you and your pals explode into meat much more specific. Now,…

World War Z’s co-op action actually looks a lark

My expectations for games based on movies are never high, so I'm surprised and delighted that World War Z actually looks quite fun in gameplay footage swarming out of E3. The four-player cooperative shooter looks a whole lot like a less-cheery version of Left 4 Dead, with a touch of defence-building and oh, swarms of up to 500 zombies who will form inhuman pyramids to…

Spintires: MudRunner churns up new map, new mode

The world's muckiest puzzle game gets trickier today with the addition of a mode that'll send drivers scrambling over hills and getting stuck in mud while trying to collect logs placed randomly around the map. The latest Spintires: MudRunner "free DLC"/content update arrives today, adding two new vehicles, that new 'Scavenge' mode, and one new map to scavenge on. Beyond this, work continues on new…

World War Z has an overwhelming gameplay trailer

The film World War Z is supposed to have a sequel coming. I'm not sure how or why, considering that the first title had one of the more troubled production histories in the last decade of cinema. Brad Pitt and director David Fincher pop up every few months to remind us that it is still happening, probably, sometime. That's fine by me. But what's much…

Halo Online returns with a bang as the fan-run ElDewrito

Blasphemous as it sounds, I really like Halo. I like the floaty jumps, the slugfest combat where landing the first hit doesn't always mean a win, the swooshy, slidey vehicles and the range of multiplayer modes. So naturally, Microsoft chose to release the free-to-play Halo Online in Russia only and cancel it before it could leave the early beta stages of development. Legally fuzzy, perhaps,…

Spintires: MudRunner’s Steam Workshop adds map support

Probably the main reason to buy Spintires: MudRunner if you already owned the wonderful original is the prospect of ongoing support, of what the game might become under the stewardship of publishers who aren't publicly feuding with the game's creator. Today saw the release of a new update expanding the muddy drive 'em up's Steam Workshop to support maps too, making it easier to download…
