Here’s all the news and trailers from the Game Awards

Like a heavily-sponsored Santa Claus, the Game Awards swept in last night and left us a pile of presents to unwrap. If you did the smart thing and slept through the event, you'll have missed a bunch of new announcements. Alice O and Graham did some amazing work in writing up as much as they could as it happened, but a few sly games snuck…

Rising Storm 2: Vietnam mod Green Army Men goes official and (mostly) free tomorrow

Tripwire's gritty, realistic manshoot Rising Storm 2: Vietnam has officially adopted the far less gritty and realistic mod Green Army Men. Launching along with the start of a free week trial tomorrow, a single-map Christmas version of this mode was previously featured. This new version of Green Army Men will include four toy-scale maps (including the holiday one) and reduced realism. All the maps will be…

Feature: Shark and awe

Maneater taps into our collective desire to be a super-powered shark

If your entire game is about munching other creatures as an increasingly super-powered shark, it's important to get the chomp noise right. I'm talking about Maneater, Blindside Interactive's upcoming sea dog sim*, which they describe as "GTA but you're a shark". Based on the hands-off demo I saw at E3, I'd say that's a bit silly. But reader, they've absolutely nailed the chomp noise.

Killing Floor 2 celebrates new objective mode with horrorclowns and free trial

Update: Tripwire's marketing folks tell us they muffed it, and the "extra-long Free Weekend on Steam" that was "starting later today" actually starts on Thursday at 6pm. Update your calendar. Tripwire Interactive really, really want you to check out Killing Floor 2's new Back & Kickin' Brass update it seems, as they're letting players have a crack at the undead re-deadening co-op shooter for zero money…

E3 2019 games – every game confirmed

They just keep coming don't they? A lot of games were announced at E3 2019, things that we didn't know about, as well as stuff that's previously announced, or expansions to already released games. Now, to the casual outsider, what we're doing might seem absolutely nuts, but we thought we'd put together an alphabetical list of all the PC games that have been confirmed to…

Chivalry 2 getting back to old-fashioned fisticuffs

The first-person melee murders of Chivalry: Medieval Warfare will resume next year in Chivalry 2, a sequel announced today by developers Torn Banner Studios. After dabbling in magic with Mirage: Arcane Warfare, which flopped pretty hard, Torn Banner are returning to good, old-fashioned whacking folks in the face with pointy metal. Out with the magic carpets and in with horses. Fewer fireballs, more facestabs. Have…

Rising Storm 2 celebrates Christmas with toy soldier battles

Wee plastic soldiers will wage war across a messy house this Christmas - and in Rising Storm 2: Vietnam. The 'realistic' multiplayer first-person shooter today launches its festive event with a pleasingly self-descriptive name, Toy Soldier Green Army Men Christmas Special. There are green toy army men, and it's Christmas, and it's special. The smooth soldiers will scamper along Hot Wheels tracks, have firefights in…

Killing Floor 2’s Gary “Badass Santa” Busey is bad for your elf

Co-op zombie splatterfest Killing Floor 2 does lovely seasonal events. Sometimes it's a weird steampunk airship adventure, sometimes Santa is battling the Krampus to the death. For this festive Seasons Beatings update - live now - Santa has been ousted from his north pole workshop by his demonic nemesis, and is returning for some cold vengeance. Old Saint Nick is also voiced by Gary Busey…

Killing Floor 2 starts Gary Busey rehearsing for his Christmas event debut

We're barely out of October and Killing Floor 2 is jumping the queue to get its next holiday sweater on. In a bit of oddball casting that somehow makes sense, Tripwire's monster-mashing co-op shooter is adding a grizzled, eyepatched Santa to its playable characters, voiced by the eternally boggle-eyed Gary Busey. Players can opt in to the game's beta branch later today to try the…

Rising Storm 2: Vietnam adds multi-map Multiplayer Campaign mode

"You may have won the battle," cries an unusually eloquent trash-talker on the other team, "but you haven't won the war!" In Rising Storm 2: Vietnam, his anachronistic cussing-out may now actually be correct. A free update to the first-person shooter today added the new 'Multiplayer Campaign' mode, where 64 players fight across multiple maps and 11 years of the Vietnam War, with new factions…

Killing Floor 2’s summer event involves airships & clowns

For all its gore-drenched mayhem, I'm starting to think that Tripwire's co-op FPS Killing Floor 2 might not be the most serious of games. Maybe it's the ridiculous steampunk hats and vengeful zombie clowns that gave it away? Either way, the game just launched its big summer event, and it's bringing a lot of chunky new (and entirely free) content to the game, including a…

Maneater is Jaws: The Game, and we’re Jaws

After making teams of sharks fight teams of divers in multiplayer seafest Depth, creative director Alex Quick seems to have decided, you know what, stuff humans, sharks are way cooler; so his next game is solely about a giant shark eating everything in its path. Swimmers! Alligators! Fishermen! Whales! Sailors! Sunbathers! Developers Blindside Interactive and publishers Tripwire today announced Maneater, which is a--and I never…

The ARVN join Rising Storm 2: Vietnam’s jungle rumble

It seems only fitting that the announcement of a new playable faction in Antimatter/Tripwire's historical team-shooter Rising Storm 2: Vietnam is accompanied by a sobering statistic; Over a million Vietnamese served in the ARVN (Army of the Republic of Vietnam) over the course of the war, and over a quarter of them died. On May 29th, you'll get the chance to wade into battle as…

Rising Storm 2: Vietnam throws Australians into the fray

Crikey! Rising Storm 2: Vietnam, the unforgiving multiplayer shooter from the Red Orchestra devs, has gone down under for its first major update - and come back with an Australian fighting force that's equipped with new weapons and vehicles. The fighting still takes place in Vietnam - it's in the name, innit - but the Bushranger update also brings 3 new maps for the new…

Killing Floor: Incursion’s Steam launch slips back a week

Those VR pioneers lucky enough to own HTC hardware will have to exercise a little more patience this week. Originally due for release on the 7th, the Vive-friendly Steam release of VR spinoff Killing Floor: Incursion has slipped an extra week and is now set for release on Tuesday, November 14th, along with a major new update for the game bringing an endless horde-survival mode to…

Killing Floor 2 launches Halloween Horror event

As you'd expect from a series about shooting monsters, mutants, and Einsteins, Killing Floor parties hard at Goth Christmas. The party starts today in Killing Floor 2 [official site] with the launch of its Halloween Horrors update, which adds a new map, extra weapons, and new(ish) enemy variants. And for people who enjoy dressing up, the update also brings Halloweenie cosmetic rewards and a way…

Feature: Update Night

Has Killing Floor 2 been improved by its updates?

Update Night is a fortnightly column in which Rich McCormick revisits games to find out whether they've been changed for better or worse. Gaming’s greatest gun is still Doom’s double-barrelled shotgun. We have to all say that, right? For my money, though, slots two, three, four — all the way down to about 15 in the list of Top However Many Shootiest Guns in Videogames —…

Killing Floor: Incursion brings zombie slaughter to VR

Chop a zombie's head off with an axe, grab the skull and chuck it at one of his ghoulish friends, all using your own, real-life hands. That's the kind of thing you can do in Killing Floor: Incursion [official site], which is out now and brings combat based on the excellent Killing Floor games to virtual reality. It's exclusive to the Rift right now and requires the Oculus Touch to…

Rising Storm 2: Vietnam review

As soon as I peek out over the wall, bullets zip past my head and ricochet off the bricks around me. I duck back down, my screen blurring. I'm pinned down. That is, until the artillery comes down on the enemy trench, its screeches echoed by the cries of the Americans caught in the blasts. I pop my head back up to have a look…

Killing Floor 2 carnival event & free week start tomorrow

I still haven't spent more than a couple of hours with Killing Floor 2 [official site] but I'll be damned if I miss out on some of its sinister, sickening Summer Sideshow action. Tripwire make monsters that get under my skin - they'd probably use a rusty potato peeler - and I always enjoyed the cosmetic changes in the first game's seasonal events. Well, they're…
