Techland delay Pure Farming 17 long enough to become Pure Farming 2018

Pure Farming 17 has been delayed for so long that it's now got a new name: Pure Farming 2018 [official site]. Publishers Techland (the same gang who made Dead Island and published Torment: Tides of Numenera) say it will arrive early next year, not this year as expected, because they're keen "to make it as good as it needs to be".

Feature: For those familiar with torment

Torment: Tides Of Numenera (for Planescape veterans) review

You know Planescape: Torment well, and chose to hear whether Torment: Tides of Numenera will betray your trust or not rather than to have its nature defined first. Please note that certain key elements of the game are skipped over here, which is because they are covered in more detail in the Torment newcomers review here. I did not wish to repeat myself unduly in…

Feature: For those new to torment

Torment: Tides of Numenera (for series newcomers) review

You do not know the past of Torment, and so chose to hear everything. No, you don't need to have played 1999 weird fantasy roleplaying game Planescape: Torment to enjoy this spiritual sequel. There are references and commonalities, but they're not in any way necessary to understand or appreciate it. What is required is a reasonable degree of patience, and an enjoyment of reading and…

Torment: Tides of Numenera trailer highlights the Nano class

Torment: Tides of Numenera [official site] was the highest-funded video game at the time of its Kickstarter, and although its missed its release date more than once, things are looking on track for an early 2017 release as it progresses through early access. A recent trailer for Torment focuses on the Nano Class, which utilizes ancient technology to achieve feats that appear like magic.

No, Ryelly: Dead Island Devs Announce Pure Farming

Techland, the Polish studio behind high-action first-person shooters including Dead Island, Call of Juarez, and Dying Light, have announced they're making a farming simulator. Pure Farming 17: The Simulator [official site] will be a serious farm 'em up, no zombies or nothing as far as I know. Though I do believe that techno-organic monster teased in the announcement trailer, as shown ↑ up top, may…

Dying Light Gets Rocket League’s Buggy And A Ball

Usually we post about Rocket League [official site] because it's taking yet another iconic car from pop culture and turning it into DLC, but not this time. This time it's the other way around: it's the Rocket League buggy that has come to Dying Light [official site] as a free DLC. So if you ever get tired of running over zombies you can play some…

Dying Light – The Following review

The Following is an enormous expansion, adding a huge new map and all manner of vehicular carnage to Techland's open world zombie-smasher Dying Light [official site]. But does a game about urban exploration and claustrophobic limb-lopping really need to stretch its legs in the great outdoors? And how does a buggy fit into a world of parkour and pummelling? Is carkour even possible? Here's wot…

Dying Light Raises Expansion And Enhanced Edition

Today's a big day for Dying Light [official site], with three new releases coming to the open-world, zombie-slaying, parkouring FPS. I'll try to explain this slowly, because it's all enough that there's a diagram explaining it all. So! Today brings The Following, the paid expansion which adds a new area and vehicles to Dying Light. Today also brings a free update with many tweaks and…

Hands On: Dying Light – The Following

I'm the resident cheerleader for Dying Light [official site] round these parts. Techland's zombies 'n' parkour urban playground was one of my favourite action games of 2015, and a few hours with enormous expansion The Following have convinced me that the entire game is far smarter than the surface suggests. Rather than distracting from the free-running and scavenging, the addition of a vehicle and rural…

A Better You: Dying Light’s Legendary Levels

Dying Light's [official site] mega-expansion, The Following, takes the zombie-killing open world action out of the city and into the surrounding area. That means your parkour and urban scavenging skills might be slightly less useful than they had been while you were clambering across rooftops and digging through the trash. Enter the buggy - a customisable vehicle that has its own equivalent of the base…

Dying Light: The Following Teases New Story Trailer

Since its reveal earlier this year, details on The Following - the upcoming expansion for zombie survival parkour-a-thon Dying Light [official site] - have been few and far between. We've been told there'll be an unscrupulous cult, that we'll get to travel outside the quarantine zone, and that we'll get to cart around in a selection of undead-decimating dune buggies. Now, we discover there might…

Undead Undead Undead! Dying Light: Enhanced Edition

For a while, earlier this year, Adam would come back from his lunch break with suspicious rips in his clothes, dust and dirt on his knees, and blood soaking him from head to toe. No matter how much he insisted he'd simply smoked a particularly dangerous cigarette, we knew: he was on the parkour-a-zomb-o-kills. Adam liked Dying Light [official site], I'm trying to say. He…

Dying Light DLC Season Pass’s Price Is… Going Up $10?

I don't know anything about business but I know that if you're not disrupting, you're bankrupting. This isn't 2014, grandma. Here in 2015, we've disrupted the economic paradigm with an innovative shareconomy. Just the other day, I used the app Walk A Mile to rent my shoes to someone who wanted a smarter pair for a business lunch. So yeah, you might be used to…

Dying Light: The Following Out Early Next Year

As winter draws nearer, so too does darker nights and frosty pavements. I like running, you see, and it's at this time of year I switch from jogs around my local park to the treadmill at the gym. Which is way more boring. I often think: what would make this run more exciting? And the answer is invariably zombies. Zombies make things like aimless running…

Better Late Than Never: Dying Light Demo Released

Have you played Dying Light [official site]? Techland's follow-up to Dead Island is pretty good fun, says our Adam. You run and jump and parkour around an open world, killing zombies with guns and fancy knives. If that's your sort of bag, hey, you might fancy playing its demo, which has finally launched on Steam - eight months after the game's initial release. If you…

Dying Light – The Following Adds An Enormous New Map And Customisable Vehicles

As the only member of RPS who recognises the brilliance of Dying Light [official site], I'm probably the only person here who is delighted by the reveal of a huge, meaty expansion. A new map as big as the one in the original, customisably buggies to drive around in and rural areas to sit alongside the urban environment of the base game. I had a…

Dying Light: The Following’s Vehicular Zombicide

An expansion named The Following is coming to Dying Light [official site], but developers Techland are being big teasy-teases. You'll get to mow down zombies in a dinky little dune buggy across a big new map, and that's about all they've said. Though, really, what more would you want them to say? Next week during the big Gamescom show they'll reveal more, but I imagine…

Wee Break: Techland’s Action-RPG Hellraid On Hold

A Dead Island mod adding magic spells and whopping great swords was the initial spark for Hellraid [official site]. Developers Techland announced in 2012 that they were working on a first-person action-RPG with wizards and skellingtons and zapsticks, then codenamed Project Hell. As the years went by, the game slipped and slipped again. It was originally due in 2013, then slated to launch on Steam…

Loudspeaker: Dying Light’s Bozak Horde Out May 26th

The first DLC expansion for Dying Light [official site] has now been announced, detailed and dated. It's called The Bozak Horde and, judging from the teaser trailer below it has a touch of Saw about it, as you’re challenged to complete some sicko’s elaborate game to stay alive. We’re going layers deep into gameception with this one. Succeed and you’ll win a super-stealthy composite bow…
