And it looks pretty good. Featuring squad-based mechanics and a campaign that's also playable in co-op, Space Hulk: Deathwing looks to cover that urge you might have to dispense righteous vengeance aboard a Gothic spaceship wearing a white mech suit. Our only real gripe with what we see here is that the Deathwing Terminators seem to be a little too chatty.
And it's Q2 2018. As in the distant future. Well, not really but as the project was only recently crowdfunded via Kickstarter, odds were that the final release was a couple of years away. The announcement came via the Kickstarter page, where developer Nightdive Studios also states that the team has commenced working on a Vertical Slice -- a small self-contained gameplay section that showcases what the game will look and feel like when complete.
Just when you were reconciling playing through Dishonored 2 as both Corvo and Emily comes word that the game will be getting a New Game Plus mode next month. As it will allow you to start over with all of your powers intact, the number of times one could conceivably play Dishonored 2 and not feel like they're simply repeating the same steps is pretty impressive.
Mostly affecting those with rigs powerful enough to run the game at 'Ultra' settings, the first substantial patch for Battlefield 1 seems to be affecting performance in a negative way. In that certain effects and filters seem to be broken with the visuals looking more 'Medium' than 'Ultra'. Naturally, this has left quite the sour taste in some players mouths, as this lengthy forum thread covers.
And judging by that title you can probably guess that it's launch trailer is NSFW. As it features many a cartoon penis. Available now via Steam Early Access (but not in Australia or NZ), Genital Jousting is a multiplayer party game. Albeit, a weird and naughty one. In relation to it not being available in Australia, publisher Devolver Digital has basically not even bothered to submit it for classification. Due to the content.
Roller coaster and theme park simulators have been around for quite a while now, but it's the release of Planet Coaster that has fans of the sub-genre more excited than they have been in years. With its level of freedom and creativity akin to something like Cities: Skylines, Planet Coaster looks pretty incredible. And if you love the idea of creating your own theme park, packed with roller coasters, mascots, and thrill-rides, you'll probably want to check this out.
Which should put a smile on your face. Because this new episode might also feature the debut of a certain grinning adversary. As the penultimate episode in the series, Episode 4 'Guardian of Gotham' is also set to feature some the biggest choices so far. With Telltale advising that depending on the outcome here, a lot of people might experience a very different finale. Which, sounds pretty awesome.
And we couldn't be more excited. Which is surprising, because it's pinball. But hey, more Fallout! Bethesda Pinball is a collaboration with Zen Studios, the leaders in all things digital pinball, and gives a few of the publisher's most popular franchises the pinball treatment. With tables based on Fallout, DOOM, and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
Since release, Total War: Warhammer has had it's fair share of additional content, unfortunately most of it hasn't been all that spectacular. But, that's all set to change with the latest Wood Elves DLC due for release next month. Following in the footsteps of the recent Beastmen pack we got, this new bit of DLC not only introduces a new race to the game (the Wood Elves) but also a new forest-themed campaign.
Which, for some reason has quite a few people sounding off in the comments proclaiming the existence of "Alan Wake 2!!!", a game that Remedy itself has stated is not currently being working on. And following on from that announcement, where they said that they were working on two new games, this teaser video from the studio's Sam Lake (aka the original Mac Payne), features the man doing his very best Max Payne face. Because, he IS Max Payne. So our money's on a new Max Payne from Remedy. Which when you come right down to it, would be pretty awesome.
