In development since the launch of Skyrim all the way back in 2011, Enderal: The Shards of Order is a pretty ambitious project. An entirely new RPG built using the Creation Kit with new locations, characters, and story, all set outside of the Elder Scrolls universe. With a German release expected this weekend, a full English voiced release is due later in July. Trailer after the break.
Night Dive Studios is getting ready to launch the Kickstarter campaign for its ambitious System Shock Remastered project. But as the headline suggests, and with the scope of the project growing in recent months and the developer re-building the game from the ground up, it's now more of a reboot than remaster.
Which is to say that MachineGames, the developers behind the fantastic Wolfenstein: The New Order has released a brand new episode of single-player levels for the original Quake. Available via a simple download, all you need to do is extract the file into your Quake directory, run the batch file, and you'll be partying like it was 1996.
For fans of the series this 12 minute introduction to Civilization VI narrated by Sean Bean is a both a blessing and curse. A blessing in that it gives you a pretty in-depth look at how the game plays in comparison to other entries in the series. And a curse because it looks so good that the wait until the October 21 release date will now feel like an eternity.
As so it begins. Another round of Steam sales, where a number of games both big and small have been discounted just enough to tempt you into adding them to your ever growing pile of games that you'll get to one day. Eventually. It'll happen. In time. But anyway, with the picnic themed sale kicking off today a number of bargains are up for grabs. Including considerable discounts to recent titles like Doom, Fallout 4, and Rise of the Tomb Raider.
Asemblance, the debut game from indie developer Niloh Studios promises to be the first part in a new psychological sci-fi anthology series that takes inspiration from a number of classics like The Twilight Zone and Black Mirror. So then, how does the first episode or installment fare? Well, we've kind of forgotten. Because you see, there's this memory machine. And after storing all our memories on it, you can call them 'reviews', we've had our mind drives wiped.
Now that it's finally gone public domain we don't have to live in fear when singing the happy birthday song. And guess who's turning 20? Quake! So here we go, "Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you" etc, etc. Actually that song kinda sucks. But anyway, Quake is 20. And to celebrate one of the game's creators, John Romero, took to his blog to talk about the seminal shooter plus post the first ever screenshots from the game.
Which means if you own the game on PC you can check out the new Competitive Play mode today. Assuming of course you've hit Level 25. As Blizzard has been running PTR servers for a number of its games to give players a chance to check out new content patches early, it was only a matter of time before this was the case with Overwatch.
As with all big releases these days when you pre-order 2K's upcoming Mafia III you'll get a set of exclusive cars and weapons. "That's all well and good, but what do they look like?"
