A Halo 2 multiplayer bug is killing your friends with ghost rockets

The PC release of Halo 2: Anniversary arrived on Wednesday morning with a revamped look and a nasty new bug. Folks trying its widely-adored multiplayer have found that trying to rockets and grenades fired at enemies will sometimes magically teleport to teammates and blow them up instead. That's bad, that. And then teamkilling protections can kick in and you get kicked from the match and...…

Halo 2: Anniversary is now out on PC

Ian Halo's remastered adventures continue on PC today with the release of Halo 2: Anniversary in the wee hours. Ian and his sexy pet search engine, Cortana, are continuing to get into sci-fi trouble with ringworlds, and this time we also get to play parts from an alien Arbiter's perspective too. Halo 2 has been on PC before, with a wonky port back in the…

Halo 2: Anniversary comes to PC next week

The adventures of Master Chief will continue in Halo 2: Anniversary next Tuesday, May 12th, Microsoft have announced. This time Master Chief (a name I still refuse to believe is real, even as characters say it) and Cortana (a name I still reuse to believe Microsoft reused for their voice-activated searchbot) are joined by a new ally, switching perspectives for part of the story. I'm…

Feature: Flatbed head

SnowRunner review

I took my Chevy to the levee, but the levee wasn’t dry. That’s the problem all over Black River, actually: a recent flood has rendered the soil sodden enough to swallow a car whole. Days of rain have closed the north road out of an already-sleepy Michigan town with rockslides. Power lines are down, too - although that might have more to do with stubborn…

Instead of WWE 2K21, wrestling fans are getting arcade action in WWE 2K Battlegrounds this year

There's no proper WWE 2K game coming this year, which isn't too surprising after the rough landing that WWE 2K20 had last year. Instead, 2K have announced something that seems, or at least looks, quite different. Enter stage left WWE 2K Battlegrounds, a game which sounds like a wrestling battle royale but probably is not. All we've seen so far is Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson…

SnowRunner devs want mod support, and mods, available from day one

If there are two things you probably shouldn't be sick of going into SnowRunner, it's trucks and snow. They're sort of essential parts of the chilly Spintires: MudRunner follow-up, right? But if you do get tired of 'em after heading into Saber Interactive's frosty truck sim, fret not. When it launches next week, SnowRunner should launch will full mod support - letting you get behind…

Snowrunner’s latest trailer apes Death Stranding really well

I'd forgotten that Snowrunner, the trucking sim where the weather pushes back you at every turn, is out this month. The trailer reminded me of that, and it also reminded me of Death Stranding. I mean, it's a clear parody of Hideo Kojima's game, but it's also the sad tale of a man in a truck and the family he left behind.

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…
