Below players can try the new Explore Mode right now

The roguelike-like survival game Below was a bit more difficult when it came out than its moody, fog-filled trailers suggested, even to me who had been following it for multiple years. Capybara Games announced a while back that they'd heard community feedback and had decided to add a second mode to the game dubbed Explore Mode. Capy are giving PC players a chance to try…

No Man’s Sky now has living ships with creepy, veiny cockpits

No Man's Sky continues to grow and now it's grown something properly alive. It's an egg that hatches into a sentient ship. Sorry, am I reading that right? Yup, the spacefaring crafting simulation game now has ships that are alive and you pilot them from inside their apparently spacious cockpit heads. Where's the brain at, though? The Living Ship update is adding some other organic…

PUBG has a new Team Deathmatch mode now

The latest Playerunknown's Battlegrounds patch went live today, introducing a classic Team Deathmatch game mode. It's being added as part of a new Arcade section in the game, which will start introducing more varied ways to play PUBG aside from the usual battle royale stuff.

PUBG is adding an 8 on 8 team deathmatch mode

Despite making its name as a last man standing game of 30-ish minute rounds, Playerunknown's Battlegrounds has dabbled with speeding up its matches over the years. It hasn't quite outrun the "running simulator" pejorative because apparently I'm one of the few folks that actually enjoys having sweaty palms and an elevated heart rate while tactically sneaking from bush to bush as the play area narrows.…

Dwarf Fortress has new villainous actions and pet-able pets

The at times inscrutable and oft eye-straining simulation game Dwarf Fortress has a new update today. It has the beginnings of a villainy system where evil acts like assassinations, coups, and embezzlement can happen during world generation. There are also pets for your dwarves which I'd like to suggest is the most important bit.

Bad North overhauls its campaign in today’s free update

Bloody Norsemen. They don't know how good they have it, up there on those tiny frozen islands. Here I am, sticking another water bottle in the freezer and they're still up there bashing each other into a bloody pulp over a pile of snow. Typical. It's about time someone went up and gave them a good shake-up. Things might be grim up north, but Bad…
