Worms Rumble reimagines the turn-based classic as a real-time arena shooter. It’s arcadey and colourful and extremely brisk. I would love to tell you that this is the definitive Worms Battle Royale, but so far Last Worm Standing is actually my least favourite of the three modes on offer. Nonetheless I guess that’s the pitch.

It’s 32 players blasting each other to pieces in surprisingly expansive 2D environments with lots of architectural complexity to balance the fact that there are so many people packed in there together. There are shopping malls and underground stations with working trains. There are vents and elevators and secret areas, which are covered to the player until you head inside yourself – which could mean a nasty surprise. You spawn with one of a handful of weapons but there are plenty of others scattered around. This is Worms so there are rifles and shotguns, but … Read the rest

Dauntless Reforged launches December 3 and includes a substantial rework of previous systems and the introduction of a brand-new hunt type. Here are three new things to experience in the Shattered Isles when this update goes live on Xbox One.

Hunting Grounds

The Hunting Grounds hunt type offers an entirely new way to engage with the Shattered Isles. 18 new islands support up to 6 slayers at once, and the best part? You no longer have to leave! Stay and slay to your heart’s content. With 18 islands to explore, you’ll never find a dull moment. Face hostile fauna, unlock rewards, and take on ferocious behemoths to your heart’s content.

Since you’re able to spend more time on Hunting Grounds islands than in previous hunt types, we’ve also added the ability to seamlessly restock your supplies on islands through a new consumable source: Supply crates. Supply crates let you refresh … Read the rest

The cubes are probably my favourite thing about Immortals Fenyx Rising. The floating cubes. Huge cubes, taller than me, scattered nursery toys of the Gods. You whack them to start them up and then they glow and hover above the ground. In this state you can pull them about and even throw them. You can stack them and use them for all kinds of platforming puzzles. Clever stuff, inevitably. What I love though – and I think I do love the cubes a bit – is their playfulness. Prod them and they drift a little. Lob them at a target and they spin away afterwards with a sort of Space Odyssey laziness. Once I was standing on a cube and I got another one stuck underneath it, which meant the cube I was standing on started to tilt and threatened to throw me off. Immortals is always a lively game, … Read the rest

Hello, People of the Fog. 

A new chapter is now available in Dead by Daylight and brings with it a unique killer and survivor. The theme of the chapter is family: what we do for family, what we sacrifice for family, how family builds and shapes who we are… And our new killer knows about family as it is a conjoined brother and sister, also known as The Twins! Let’s hear more from Dead by Daylight Creative Director Dave Richard.


Dead by Daylight Associate Brand Manager Thomas Carpentier: It’s the first time that a killer is composed of two different characters. How did the idea come to the development team? What was unique and interesting as the development progressed? 

Dead by Daylight Creative Director Dave Richard: The ability to separate and control multiple independent characters with different abilities has always been a fascinating concept to the team. Over the years, … Read the rest

Nika has just finished the first phase of her plan to destroy everything that isn't cool: the construction of a combat mecha called MechaNika. There's no time to lose, so join Nika, get your hands on MechaNika's controls and demolish the entire planet. You have to put an end to history books, planned obsolescence, kitschy dresses, never-ending sagas of boring video games and pea soup.

And if there's someone in the world that hates vegetables more than Nika, it's her friend Agatha, the insomniac butcher and prophetess of Carnivorism that loves animals and their succulent meat in equal measure. That's why, when she learns of the objectives of Nika's plan, she doesn't hesitate to join the mission of destruction alongside the Great Bleeding Pig, god of Carnivorism, to subdue any grass-eating, non-believers that

After staying seemingly closed off for many years, 2020 is looking like the year Chinese games break out onto the global market. There’s first-person shooter/slasher Bright Memory, which not only left early access earlier this year but is also being developed into a full-length game, while early footage of next-gen action game Black Myth: Wukong was enough to generate buzz around the world. The biggest success however belongs to Genshin Impact, already the biggest global launch for a Chinese game ever, with over $100 million revenue reported within two weeks of release. If these are signs of a trend, then Chinese developers are in for a bright new dawn of premium-quality games.

But when I think of Chinese games, I’m never just thinking of games made from China. As a Chinese person myself, I’m thinking of all the other cultural traditions and sensibilities that carry across a whole ethnic diaspora. … Read the rest
