The first two Turok game came out in 1997 and 1999, and being released primarily for the Nintendo 64 they naturally used the technical visual technique of 'Fog! Fog! Fog!' to hide texture and object pop-in. The first game in particular is known for its liberal use of fog, to the point where Turok could barely see a few metres in front of him for the entire game. Which, kind of made the action that little bit more intense. Night Dive Studios, who are behind the Turok remasters have released a batch of screens for Turok the Dinosaur Hunter. And there's one thing missing.
And to quote Overwatch game director Jeff Kaplan "Hopefully, that alleviates some concerns that people have." Yes Jeffmeister, it certainly does. Even though the team-based shooter from Blizzard is still months out from release, the team are already looking at adding new heroes and maps to the game after launch. And sure, for a multiplayer shooter that doesn't exactly come as a big surprise but opting out of the Season Pass/Map Pack route is worth talking about.
After a successful Early Access campaign, DiRT Rally from Codemasters has finally reached version 1.0. With the full game available to purchase now, on Steam. Created as a pure rally driving sim, the benefit of Early Access and player feedback has resulted in DiRT Rally being the sort of traditional rally game that Codemasters became known for. But one built with the aim of pleasing driving fans with a deep and rich rally sim experience.
Rise of the Tomb Raider is getting some new story content in January called Baba Yaga: Temple of the Witch, and being based on Slavic folklore it looks a little bit like Rise of the Tomb Witcher. And by that, we mean a pretty inspired looking departure from the base game. Not that the series has shied away from the supernatural in past, it's just that a giant house with chicken legs is a little nuts.
Starting tomorrow Destiny players will be able to take part in the Sparrow Racing League, a new limited event that is expected to run for three weeks. Using the up-to-now kind of useless Sparrow vehicles for more than just cool looking things that got you to quest markers a lot quicker than walking, Sparrow Racing League will pit players against each other in races set on Mars and Venus with rewards coming in the form of new gear. And new Sparrows.
Sony revealed quite a bit at its PlayStation Experience keynote over the weekend. So much in fact that it's probably best to take it all in at once, in a sensory overload of awesome. We're talking new looks and announcements for the Final Fantasy VII Remake, Uncharted 4, Street Fighter V, and more. Click through for all the trailer goodness you can handle. And then some.
And it comes with The Following expansion plus a whole slew of upgrades and improvements. With a release date of February 9, 2016 (same day as the expansion) the Enhanced Edition is just about a Game of the Year Edition as it also comes packed with the Season Pass content. And a whole slew of upgrades and improvements. Hey, that's the second time you mentioned slew and whole! What gives? Well, that's because Dying Light: Enhanced Edition also comes with improved character models, new animations, a new legend system, harder difficulty modes, audio upgrades, and more.
And say bye-bye to pixels, as the updated art looks every bit like a Chuck Jones-inspired cartoon. Which was the original intention for the classic '90s LucasArts adventure game co-designed by Tim Schafer and Dave Grossman, so all's well that ends well. But wait, there's more! And to alleviate the burning question as to whether or not Tim Schafer and Double Fine will remaster all of his classic LucasArts titles, the answer is yes! That's right, we can also expect to see Full Throttle Remastered on PC and PlayStation sometime in 2017.
With the in-game character reveals we've been getting over the past month all we could gather was that Paragon was a multiplayer game of sorts. Now we know that Paragon, from the developer behind Unreal Tounrament, is a MOBA and headed to PC and PlayStation 4 in 2016, with paid Early Access and an Open Beta expected sometime mid-next year. Running on the latest Unreal Engine 4 it definitely looks impressive. Announcement and gameplay trailer after the jump.
