Which has merit even on the face of the talent stabled up at Warner Bros. Interactive, along with how successful and critically acclaimed the Batman: Arkham series was. But this specific rumour centres around WB Montreal (Batman: Arkham Origins) working on two games, which seems maybe a bit of a stretch.

With bonus, detailed, and excellent impressions from friend of the site and AusGamers contributor Adam 'Griz' Mathew. Who also took the time to upload our Fallout 76 play-session in its entirety. Which if you know a thing or two about Australian internet speeds means the man is a true-blue legend. So sit back and enjoy over two hours of raw Fallout 76 gameplay capture.

Grand sci-fi strategy, of the 4X variety which represents "explore, expand, exploit, and exterminate" has traditionally been the sort of genre that you'd only find on PC. Mainly due to the complex nature of the mechanics, menus, and so forth best suited to keyboard and mouse. But with keyboard and mouse support soon to be a thing on consoles, the grand sci-fi strategy of Stellaris is console bound.

But, if you take a look closer at each picture you'll notice a Pip Boy on the arm of each human character - which could mean that, sure, these factions are indeed present in the game but entirely role-played by actual players. Which would be fascinating if true, but we'll have to wait and see how the Enclave, Brotherhood of Steel, Doomsday Prepper, Raiders, Responders, fit into Fallout 76.

Yeah, quite the headline. But also a cheeky one, so be sure to drop in your favourite Apollo-era moon landing conspiracy theories in the comments. Back in 2013, NVIDIA first used its Maxwell GPU technology to recreate the Apollo 11 moon landing and demonstrate how it couldn't have been staged. And now with the power of the new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 it's brought the demo back.

Retailer listings giving accurate time-frames ahead of announcements is something that we've come to accept in recent years. But, with placeholder dates also being thrown around everywhere it's not an exact science. Based purely on the success of GTA V on PC, Red Dead Redemption 2 will no doubt be coming soon to the platform. Months ago there was a LinkedIn profile for a Rockstar developer detailing that they were working on the port.

With development now in the final stages at Chucklefish, the studio behind Starbound and the publisher of Stardew Valley. Inspired by Nintendo's classic GBA turn-based strategy game Advance Wars, Wargroove looks incredible for just how much it captures the feel of Advance Wars and its bright, vibrant, art-direction.

At the Extremeland Zowie Asia tournament in Shanghai, China, CS: GO and OpTic India player Nikhil 'Forsaken' Kumawat was caught cheating and using an auto-aim hack during a match-up against Vietnamese team Revolution. Once officials grew suspicious and began looking at Forsaken's PC he attempted to delete the hack before it was found.

Pushed back from February which would have put it head-to-head against Anthem, Crackdown 3, and Metro Exodus. The post-apocalyptic open-world zombie game (or as their known in the world of Days Gone 'Freakers') first made its debut on stage at E3 2016, with its original release window of 2018 pushed back to early 2019.

Making its debut on PC in November, with both Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of Warframe expected to get the new content sometime this summer. Fortuna presents a new large open-space four to five times bigger than Plains of Eidolon with a new look to take advantage of the Venusian setting. Plus, hoverboards and neon-lit city locations.

With the recent article and interview with Rockstar's Dan Houser that gave some insight into development, his statement of '100 work weeks' drew fair criticism - in that a work schedule of that nature is insane and unhealthy. Clarifying that is was something that he and a small group of writers do (and have done in the past) for a few weeks, Rockstar has lifted social media restrictions for its employees to post freely about working conditions.

One of the big points of contention or change that came with the online multiplayer reveal of Fallout 76 was that the world will not feature human NPCs. All human interaction would be with other players in a prequel set hundreds of years before the events of Fallout 4. And now with a pair of social media posts, Bethesda is confirming the existence of both the Brotherhood of Steel and Raiders.

FromSoftware and Bandai Namco's classic has finally made it to the Nintendo Switch today with the release of Dark Souls: Remastered. The game which started it all really, that being comparing almost everything since to Dark Souls. And with that in mind, thanks to Bandai Namco, we take a look back at the original to uncover what makes it so special. And a genre unto itself.

On October 26 you might have to make a decision, if you're a PC stalwart who lives console-less. Because one of the most anticipated games of this generation (and probably next, too) drops for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One (with 4K HDR enhanced features for Pro, S and One X) in Red Dead Redemption 2.

A little while back we reported on the existence of The Waylanders, an ambitious indie RPG inspired by the likes of Dragon Age: Origins and Baldur's Gate as well as The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. The small indie team behind the project is also planning to include input from ex-BioWare creative director Mike Laidlaw, and ex-Telltale talent Emily Grace Buck.

Ahead of firing up Koei Tecmo's latest hack-and-slash offering, it was worth taking a moment to go over my history with the Dynasty Warriors series and all of its many off-shoots. And a moment is all it took because Warriors Orochi 4 is the first Omega Force-developed game that I've played. Not for lack of interest or any real reason other than, "hmm, guess I haven't played one of these before".

For a series that we haven't seen a new entry in years, Crysis is still well-known for its impressive visuals. And on PC, for bringing hardware to its knees for almost a decade. So much so that its takes NVIDIA's latest RTX 2080 card to run the game in 4K at high frame-rates. Segue-way! The Crysis trilogy is now backwards compatible on Xbox One.

Which is fair enough really, but a strange statement considering the subject matter of The Division - which presents an alternate version of our own world where a virus has cause widespread havok and all but destroyed society. With a group of elite government agents called The Division attempt to clean things up. And the fact that it's based on or part of the Tom Clancy universe means that at the very least the subject matter is political-by-association.

During the height of the first season of Hitman from IO Interactive it introduced a time-limited mode called Elusive Target which would task players and all the Agent 47's out in the world to track down and, well, kill a particularly difficult target.
