Sea Of Thieves’s skellington-crewed Cursed Sails update is live

While aesthetically lovely, online swashbuckler Sea Of Thieves probably didn't have enough meat on its bones at launch. Today's update, Cursed Sails, is a bit paradoxical then - its roaming crews of evil skeleton sailors add a major new NPC threat to the oceans, just ironically without flesh. Adding a new time-limited quest, plus a goodly chunk of new things to see and do to…

Halo 5: Guardians looks to be coming to Windows 10, too

With Halo Infinite confirmed for release on PC (Windows 10, at least), it seems that Microsoft are easing up on the stranglehold that has kept the series console-exclusive for so long. The changes might just be retroactive, too, as eagle-eyed folks on Reddit spotted that Halo 5: Guardians is now listed on the Xbox site as being both an Xbox and Windows 10 game, although…

Gears of War 5 isn’t the only new Gears game

Gears of War is coming back in a big way. Today's Microsoft E3 presser ended with a huge blast of Gears reveals. The first: a Funko based Gears of War game called Gears POP! which is... just bewildering? I don't know. Are any of you Gearheads also big Funko collectors? Seems like a weird place to start bridging games into the Funkoverse, but it is…

Forza Horizon 4 racing across Britain in October

The next race 'em up in Playground Games' fine Forza Horizon series will zoom around a land near and dear to our own hearts. Microsoft today announced Forza Horizon 4, racing across "historic" Blighty in an open shared world. Their gameplay demo on stage included a street in Edinburgh I walked along less than an hour ago, which was surreal but quite pleasant to see.…

Ori and the Will of the Wisps brings all the feels

I'm not sure what your favorite part of Ori and the Blind Forest was. Was it the heartbreaking breaking of hearts throughout the story? Was it the whole Metroidvania but cute aspect? Was it the soundtrack that has few to no peers in gaming? Well, whatever made that game special for you, today at E3 we got our first full look at the follow-up, and…

Halo Infinite announced, returning to PC

John Halo is returning to PC with Halo Infinite, Microsoft announced today during their E3 presentation. It's a bit of a mystery for now, but expect jeeps, ringworlds, and shiny helmets. Halo 2 was the last game in the main sci-fi FPS series released on PC, though Halo 5's edit-o-sandbox Forge did come our way. Here, watch the announcement trailer.

Bang to rights: Crackdown 3 officially delayed into 2019

Another year, another delay for super-powered futurecop sandbox Crackdown 3. Following rumours, publishers Microsoft have confirmed that it's now due to arrive in February 2019. Better a good game later than a wonky one now, yeah? Though I wouldn't start getting excited for February just yet, given how many times the game has been delayed. It was originally slated to launch in 2016, then it…

Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition arrives on Windows 10

The boys are low-poly now. As someone with a fairly fancy PC, it's easy to forget sometimes that not everyone has the GPU muscle to run the likes of Final Fantasy XV. An alternative presents itself today (for Windows 10 users, at least - it's OS-exclusive, sorry) in the form of Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition, a low-fi demake of the game designed for mobile…

Sea Of Thieves’ Hungering Deep bares its teeth today

Ah, Sea of Thieves. A few slightly barnacled spots on its hull aside, it's a lovely little thing so long as you can get a crew together. It's just a little light on things to do, outside of crossing swords with other rival crews of players. Today's big update, The Hungering Deep, promises to bring a little bit more action to the table in a…

Sea of Thieves’s first big update washes ashore next week

Far too many gigabytes of Rare-made pirate MMO still litter my hard drive, reserved for an imagined day when Sea of Thieves's gorgeous ocean will be blessed with the vibrancy and variety it deserves. SOT achieved the peculiar duality of burning indelible ocean-faring images into my mind while being entirely forgettable moment-to-moment, and the concept that it might blossom into something meatier currently feels more…

State Of Decay 2 tweaks: FoV, mouse smoothing + more

Now that open-world zombie apocalypse survive 'em up State Of Decay 2 is properly out, rather than just for the billionaires who ordered their butlers to buy the special edition granting early access, you may be wondering: is it any good? For that, hey, look no further than our Brendan's State Of Decay 2 review. If you're already onboard, your question may be: do I…

Feature: A rotten list

State of Decay 2 review

I’m driving home from a busy night of killing and the roads are empty, save for some legless grumblers. I sigh and look at my map, try to count the exclamation marks, when a voice comes on my radio. It’s probably the fifth voice I’ve heard tonight, and I half expect another plea for bullets from some faceless chump three doors down. But this time…

Feature: Two go mad in the country

Video: Watch us kill zombies (and a few survivors) in State of Decay 2 co-op

Zombie survival adventure State of Decay 2 lurches on to PC next Tuesday - though it’s out today for those who ordered the Ultimate edition - and Brendan kindly put aside his endless shopping trips to help me test co-op mode. Opt for a multiplayer session and you appear as visiting survivors in the host’s game, in this case, Brendan’s. You can help said host…

Sea of Thieves’ private crew update isn’t ship-shape yet

You would think that a game designed explicitly to be played with friends would offer the option to form private parties at launch, but Sea of Thieves dared to be different. Until recently, players were left using a vote system to exile unwanted crew members to the brig, but Patch 1.07 was meant to address that, adding (among other things) an invite-only crew system. Unfortunately, after…

Feature: We played for 3 hours

Video: State of Decay 2 goes for the jugular and jugglers

Come the zombie apocalypse the jugglers are the first against the wall. What to do with an unemployed children’s entertainer is one of the tamer dilemmas thrown up in the three hours I spent with State of Decay 2. But it’s indicative of Undead Lab’s slightly goofy take on zombie survival, one that has you desperately scavenging for supplies one second and weighing up the…

Sea Of Thieves content updates starts in May with The Hungering Deep

"I've enjoyed the ambience of Sea Of Thieves so much that I want it to be something that stays in my life for a long time to come, but, in its current state, I know that is impossible," our Alec said in his Sea Of Thieves review. "There is a platform for wonderful things here, but if Rare don't build new things atop it PDQ,…

Sea Of Thieves makes death charge plans walk the plank

The makers of Sea Of Thieves have scrapped plans to add a 'Death Cost' that would make deceased pirates hand over some of their coveted gold coins to return to life. Seeing as the game has only repetitive grind and fleeting wonderful experiences with other players, as our Alec's Sea Of Thieves review explained, the idea of adding more to grind for did not go…

Sea Of Thieves devs lay out plans to keelhaul problems

When Sea Of Thieves went to sail out of the harbour and launch on Tuesday, it was quickly boarded by far more many players than anticipated and the game's servers sunk to the briny depths of Davy Jones' cyberlocker. Deveelopers Rare even temporarily stopped new players from joining the multiplayer sandbox pirate game. While things are a bit more shipshape now, it's not without problems…

Sea of Thieves temporarily turns away new players to sooth server problems

While half the RPS treehouse seems to be happily singing shanties and taking screenshots where the placement of their boat's steering wheel means they appear to be clasping a pegpenis, some players have faced stormier waters in Sea Of Thieves. Rare's open-world pirate 'em up launched yesterday, and was met with such an unruly torrent of pillaging hordes that the servers struggled to keep up,…

Play Sea Of Thieves for free with the Xbox Game Pass

Sea Of Thieves hit the high seas last night, which is probably why I’m a little bit sleepy this morning. Since reviews aren’t up yet, you might be appropriately hesitant about jumping into the water. Even pirates do their due diligence. But waiting is also incredibly boring, so it’s a good thing that you can potentially play the game for absolutely nothing with the Xbox…
