From developer Holospark, Earthfall is a new co-op shooter coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on July 13. Currently playable in Early Access on Steam, so far the response has been mostly positive with players noting the Left 4 Dead roots and stating that it's a fun version of that but with aliens instead of zombies.
Although the name Unreal is now associated with the game engine that powers titles like Fortnite and others, back in the day we got our first taste of it thanks to the impressive-for-its-day Unreal. A first-person shooter from Epic Games that turns 20 this year. So to celebrate GOG.com are offering anyone and everyone a free copy of Unreal Gold.
You might remember We Happy Few from past Microsoft E3 presentations, an indie sporting a cool visual style as it creates a dystopian look at the 1960s where freedom is restricted.

It’s great to see 15.6” back in vogue, as previously gaming laptops have weirdly only shown up in 14” or 17” form. The latter of which bridges the gap with desktop gaming in such a way as to make the portable side something of a “yes, but …” proposition. With Razer announcing its new line of Razer Blade gaming laptops for 2018, it’s hard to fault what just might be the best device yet from the house of Chroma lighting and sleek black and green logos.
According the usually reliable Charlie Intel comes a report that next year's Call of Duty from developer Infinity Ward will be Modern Warfare 4. An entry that we kind of assumed was in the works.

Path of Exile, the free-to-play action-RPG in the style of classic Diablo is one of the best examples of getting of getting a complete experience without being forced to pay for content. Today, comes word that New Zealand-based developer Grinding Gear Games has been acquired by giant Chinese publisher Tencent.
That would be Darwin, for reasons that we assume are related to zombies disliking humidity. Followed by Melbourne and then Sydney. Which kind of makes sense in the whole Melbourne is way better than Sydney consensus currently doing the rounds. This news comes after Xbox Australia teamed up with Melbourne University’s Centre for Disease Management and Public Safety (CDMPS) to create the Zombie Survival Index for ANZ.
Called Resident Evil 7: Cloud Version, you can probably guess by the title that it's technically not a port but a version of Resident Evil 7 that you can stream and play on the Nintendo Switch. Kind of like PlayStation Now, in that we probably shouldn't expect to see it appear in Australia's eShop anytime soon.
