Heroes of the Storm, Blizzard's free-to-play MOBA, is one of those go-to titles that you can always fire-up for a few quick rounds of fun. But beneath the easy pick-up and play aspect lies a pretty deep experience, once with a huge stable of Blizzard characters and locations. And now we can add more Overwatch love, with the introduction of the Volskaya Foundry battleground and two new heroes!
It was only a matter of time, but boy was that quick. After recently surpassing over 1 million concurrent players on Steam - making it the second title ever to do so - over the weekend PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds broke the all-time record with 1,348,374 players PUBG-ing at the same time. Taking the crown from previous record holder Dota 2.
Tooth and Tail from developer Pocketwatch Games offers a world where squirrels fight for freedom and badgers wield mini-guns. But in a way that's both fun and thematically rich. Think George Orwell's Animal Farm and you get the idea. Battles aren't turn-based but real-time, with quick missions that present both a challenge and a great way to team up with another player. Our full review!
And yep, I realise that headline is a mouthful, but so is attempting to explain this unique and awesome gaming concept. But here goes: You know all those taverns, inns and pubs you visit in high fantasy RPGs to buy items from, rest in or, more importantly, gain information that usually leads to new quests? Well, Epic Tavern is a game where you run one of those establishments, dishing out quests, information and items to the heroes who walk through your tavern door.
Standalone expansion to the excellent Dishonored 2, Dishonored: Death of the Outsider is available now for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. In this new adventure players will take on the role of Billie Lurk, one of Dunwall's most notorious assassins. With a contract to kill the mysterious and supernatural Outsider. Launch trailer after the jump.
So much so that based on this new trailer, and the super epic last one, I may just have to play this. Driving ex-Russian military trucks that at one stage transported nukes through mountains is a cool enough premise. But a narrator with a thick American accent that somehow ends up quoting his Russian grandmother later on? What. Is. Going. On?
Ahh the PC Open Beta of a big AAA release, a thing that rarely occurs at the same time as its console counterpart. But, always a great way to see just how well a modern FPS stacks-up both visually and in terms of combat feel. Mouse, keyboard, a kick-ass GPU. Today Activision and Sledgehammer Games have confirmed that the the Call of Duty: WWII PC Open Beta will be available to play from September 29 to October 2 PST via Steam.
Dubbed a 'Gameplay Trailer' what we see here sits clearly on the cinematic side of things, but if all of this incredible footage is taken from in-game in-engine cinematic sequences then, well, wow. We already know that the scope of the game is huge, so this new look at the mysterious Order of the Ancients just cements how big this new Assassin's Creed is going to be.
