Ghost Recon Breakpoint Erewhon – how to get out of Erewhon, where to find everything

Because of the dense jungle and lack of lighting, it can be a pain to find the exact facility what you need, let alone the exit. There is a key to working out where everything is and we will share that with you now.

It's not long until Ghost Recon Breakpoint is out, but there's one more chance to play before its release date. This Ghost Recon Breakpoint open beta will give those who play it a chance to explore the archipelago of Auroa, a region where former comrades in arms and their drones generally make a nuisance for the local populace.

Feature: Music to your ears

The best game soundtracks you can listen to for free right now

Another month, another big video game publisher puts a great big dollop of video game music online for zero pennies. This time, it's Bandai Namco, who have just uploaded every single Tekken soundtrack onto Spotify because, well, apparently everyone loves Tekken. I've never partaken in a Tekken, but with track names like "Massive Stunner" and "Lonesome City Jazz Party 1st", I'm already 100% convinced the…

Ghost Recon Breakpoint sneaks into open beta next week

It's always bummed me out that Ghost Recon doesn't delve into the supernatural. We've done the tactical shooting thing a thousand times already, but F.E.A.R was ages ago, and it only had the one ghost. Let me take my band of ruff n' tuff soldier boys and steal into the jungle with mystic charms and mortar support, scoping out spooks at the end of a…

CCS Women’s League hopes to fix Rainbow 6 Siege’s lack of female pros

Esports has experienced staggering growth over the past few years, cementing itself as a billion-dollar industry as of 2019. But this rapid increase in popularity and earnings has left some players behind. The Cyberathlete Championship Series (CCS) is attempting to address the imbalance with its recently announced Women’s League for Rainbow Six Siege. Women have been a part of R6 esports for some time, with…

The booted-up lady doing a high-kick with a grappling gun in the picture above is one of the two latest Operators added to Rainbow Six Siege this week. Ubisoft have rolled out its next major expansion, Operation Ember Rise - a hefty update which combines a reworked Kanal map with some nice new chaos-engendering gadgets and playable adrenaline junkies.

Trials Rising now has a demo, and a new expansion’s off to the Amazon

I don't read many biographies, but a few years ago I picked up a book called One River by the anthropologist and botanist Wade Davis. One River is a historical account of the exploration of the Amazon river basin and the story of Davis' own experience on the river in search of medicinal, and often hallucinogenic plants. There are odd parallels here to Apocalypse Now.…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey adds historian-friendly, combat-free Discovery Tour

Hello there! It's me again, Gera - Rock Paper Shotgun's official ambassador of Canada. I'll be your guide this week on the balmy seas of gaming's evening news. As the sun sets on England, I get to work - slipping on my traditional Canadian Press-Touque, before I press my ear tightly against my monitor and listen for incoming news. Alice isn't convinced by my methods…

Aurora has been beset by Wolves, but Matt and Brendy are on the job. This is the fictional archipelago of Ghost Recon Breakpoint, the drone-enriched follow-up to third-person cartel shooter Ghost Recon Wildlands. Our boys parachuted into the latest beta, and have emerged with tales of murderous bees and janky shootouts.

Ghost Recon: Breakpoint’s PC requirements start getting Ultra hefty at 1080p

The PC requirements for Ubisoft's next big military shooty game Ghost Recon: Breakpoint were announced earlier today, detailing lots of nice PC-specific things like ultrawide and multi-monitor support, uncapped 4K frame rates, as well as support for Tobii eye-tracking and AMD's new sharpening FidelityFX tech. However, those looking forward to gazing longingly at the carefully coiffed hairs of Jon Bernthal's chinny chin chin may find…

First Fate Of Atlantis Assassin’s Creed Odyssey DLC is free if you nab it now

"Assassin's Creed Odyssey finally has DLC worth paying out for" said Alice L in her Fate Of Atlantis vid. Joke's on her: if you own the base game and download the first episode of the three-part series before September 1st, you won't need to spend a penny. The first instalment lets you poke around Elysium's eternal idyllic afternoon, stabbing alien gods while marvelling at how…

Feature: I have seen as much of life as the world can show

Watch Dogs Legion’s version of London is surprisingly accurate

As was observed by some guy who used to work here (RPS in peace), it's really weird when bits of the UK turn up in games in an authentic way. Which is to say, in a way that isn't over-the-top Victoriana Steampunk. I say I say. Tea and crumpets. (Not that I don't like crumpets, or drink an amount of tea that means I get…

Anno 1800 has a demo, but only for one week

Ubisoft have launched a week-long demo for Anno 1800, the latest in their city 'n' empire-building game. You've got until Monday to play a Victorian coloniser, wearing silly hats and ruthlessly exploiting resources and people for capital gain. And in the game. It is weird for a demo to be limited in both quantity and time, given how many week-long full-game trials we see these…

Rainbow Six Siege gets a chuffing grappling hook gun in Operation Ember Rise

After almost four years of being a game-shaped digital object, Rainbow Six Siege will soon qualify for 'actual certified video game' status when its next update adds a new character with a grappling hook. This gadget, a featured mandated by the video game certification board, will let Amaru whoosh up buildings and through windows. Proper video game stuff. She'll be joined in Operation Ember Rise…

Feature: Go berserk

Why you should play For Honour (and not just because it’s free on Epic right now)

Firstly, it’s free on the Epic Store right now, and free is good. Secondly, For Honor is an axe-swinging good time for all involved, even those plummeting to their death from a comically high castle wall. It is zero pennies from today until next Friday, August 9. However, you’re only getting the base edition, so no Shaolin monks or creepy mystics for you, at least…

Anno 1800’s Sunken Treasure DLC introduces a familiar fella, Old Nate

"Rumors spread among your crew about a hermit living on an isle of wonders, a shabby-looking scavenger and inventor who prefers the company of his own automatons," Ubisoft say to introduce the new Anno 1800 mini-expansion. "But don't let the cock-and-bull stories of your crew fool you; Old Nate may just be a genius— a genius who is willing to share his ground-breaking inventions with…

Ghost Recon Wildlands signs out with the PvPvE Mercenaries mode

With its sequel, Breakpoint, just a few months off, Ubisoft have one last gift for Ghost Recon Wildlands players that stuck around, launching free on July 18th. Mercenaries is an eight-player multiplayer mode and a radical departure from the regular game. Part survival challenge, part mini battle royale (with respawns), it reminds me of Survival mode from The Division, but on a much larger scale.…
