• 4A Games has said previously that Metro Exodus will be more open than the previous games in the Metro series, but it won’t be a completely open world like that of Stalker. For one thing, individual levels in Exodus will be much larger than anything seen in the previous games. The biggest outdoor level in Last Light was roughly “200 meters to 100 meters,” Prokhorov said,. That means everything from weapons, attachments, and other loot, to “frozen stories” that reveal more about the game world and

  • Devotion is a horror game by Taiwanese developers Red Candle, which they removed from Steam shortly after release due to controversy over its inclusion of art mocking Chinese president Xi Jinping. Though Devotion is no longer available for sale, it is being preserved thanks to Harvard University.

  • Activision has not confirmed Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will be getting a battle royale mode, but there have been plenty of hints and leaks. One, an image of people with guns standing on top of vehicles beneath the words Call of Duty: Warzone, has got Activision particularly riled up—to the point where they’ve subpoenaed Reddit for details of the user responsible for posting it, Torrentfreak reports. Redditor Assyrian241O posted a link to the picture in a thread called “I found this image onli

  • Kerbal Space Program 2 may have been delayed , but that hasn’t slowed down development or the dreams of a billion tiny green things. Kerbal Space Program 2 is pretty highly anticipated around here, given that the first game was long considered one of the best games on PC. Included first is nuclear propulsion, a real-life concept that was scrapped due to everyone’s fears of using actual nuclear bombs to get around the solar system. Kerbals, however, have no fear and are ready to use nuclear propu

  • Obsidian’s surprising reveal from last year was that the studio known principally for RPGs is going to release a survival game: Grounded. Grounded is a pretty cute game where you play as children shrunk down to tiny size trying to survive in a backyard environment. Grounded just now got a Steam page ahead of its Early Access release sometime this year, and there’s a bit more to learn about the game after its reveal announcement last November. Grounded will be released into Early Access this year

  • I hope a game that’s a blend of shoot-em-up and wave survival and tower defense sounds good to you, because that is what I’ve got here. In Taur, you control a single giant gun emplacement that you surround with automated defenses. Observe:Of course, a giant laser is not the only option. The game has a big tech tree to go through and get new defenses and cannon options, and the cannon itself has a secondary weapon with more guns on top of that. The work will be bad, not the weekend-eating game.

  • Which NPC bark are you most sick of hearing? Joanna Nelius: Highwaymen, bandits, guards—every Skyrim NPC out for my blood will say this over and over again until it becomes an empty threat. Lauren Morton: In the main hub of Guild Wars 2 there’s an NPC banker that says this ridiculous line. “You must gather your party before venturing forth,” isn’t really a bark but you sure will hear it a lot. Ramza_Beoulve: I think the bark that haunts me the most at the moment is in Divinity: Original Sin 2.

  • In 2017, Electronic Arts pulled the plug on Visceral Games, which had been working on a new Star Wars game, codenamed Ragtag, under Amy Hennig’s direction. According to a new Kotaku report, that wasn’t the extent of it: EA apparently also canned a third Star Wars game last year that was intended as a spinoff of the Star Wars Battlefront shooter series. Electronic Arts was given an exclusive license to develop Star Wars games in 2013, but it hasn’t worked out to be quite the coup that most people

  • Final Fantasy 14 is a very cute game filled with very cute pets that you can collect and show off to other players as you wander Eorzea. Most of these minions are chibi versions of classic Final Fantasy enemies and characters—adorable little puppets that scurry after you. It’s so ugly that I have no choice but to give it PC Gamer’s Editor’s Choice Award for Ugliest MMO Pet Ever. Though I’ve been an avid Final Fantasy 14 player for years, I had no idea this minion was in the game. He—is it even a

  • It’s fair to say that in most works of fiction, the devil is portrayed as the bad guy. And in the upcoming roguelike Rogue Lords, he will still be the bad guy—but he will also be you. Rogue Lords, which is being developed by Cyanide and Leikir Studio, is set in 17th-century New England, “where mortals and diabolical entities walk side by side.” “Rogue Lords is a game we came up with several years ago with Jérémie Monedero, the Game Director,” Cyanide Artistic Director Camille Lisoir said.

  • Population Zero, the story-driven sci-fi MMO that began closed beta testing last year, will soon be open to everyone. Once the Early Access release goes live, players will have seven days to survive, prosper, and build a safe shelter before Kepler, the planet they’re stranded on, becomes unlivable. Population Zero is also shifting from a planned free-to-play model, and will instead launch as a conventional purchase for $30. Enplex said that more information about Population Zero will be revealed

  • If you haven’t seen Bong Joon-Ho’s 2019 film Parasite (it won four Academy Awards, including Best Picture) don’t worry, I won’t spoil it for you—but the video below will give away some of the details. That’s because it shows off a recreation of the memorable mansion from Parasite, made in The Sims 4. The recreation and video were made by an architect who builds houses in The Sims 4 and posts them to their YouTube channel, simkoonarchitect. The mansion from the film is absolutely recognizable, ro

  • In December, League of Legends studio Riot Games agreed to a $10 million settlement in a class action lawsuit filed against it in 2018, arising from claims of systemic sexism and gender-based discrimination at the studio. The settlement would be divided between roughly 1000 women employed by the studio between November 2014 and the settlement’s approval by the court. Riot, naturally, was “dismayed,” saying that it had “worked hard to negotiate with the lawyer representing the class to reach an a

  • Who knows—maybe this will end up being a permanent drop as well. Either way, you’re looking at an additional $200 savings, on top of the recent $150 price cut. Compared to building your own PC, you’re actually coming out a little bit ahead of the game with this system, if you factor in the cost of Windows. This is a fast system underpinned by a Ryzen 7 3700X processor and GeForce RTX 2060 Super GPU. Sure, a 1TB SSD would be nice, but it’s easy enough to upgrade the storage, if and when you feel

  • However, Valve also anticipates having inventory available in time for Half-Life: Alyx. “With Half-Life: Alyx coming March 23rd, we are working hard to meet demand for the Valve Index and want to reassure everyone that Index systems will be available for purchase prior to the game’s launch. It’s a bit of a confusing statement, in that it’s not clear if whatever stock becomes available before Half-Life: Alyx launches will be enough to meet demand. “Our entire team is working hard right now to max

  • Pilots in Microsoft Flight Simulator will have quite a few options when it comes to landings. The ambitious flight sim will feature every airport in the world, according to the latest episode of the Feature Discovery Series, and 37,000 of those airports were manually designed to look just like their real-world counterparts. For the 37,000 airports which got manual design work, the team made yet another creation tool, and used resources like Bing Maps, airport databases and aerial photos. The tea

  • Techland’s zombie survival game Dying Light has been around for five years, and yet somehow in all that time it has never been up for a free weekend on Steam. Or maybe not—lots of games don’t offer free weekends, after all. Either way, I think it is a little unusual for a game to have its first free weekend five years after release, but that’s what’s happening right now. Until 10 am PT/1 pm ET on February 23, Dying Light is free to play on Steam: Just head over to the Steam page, click the “play
