At the recent Future Games Show we were given a decent look at heaps of exciting Indie projects in the works, but one slipped through the cracks as we had nothing come through via regular, official channels, but having since discovered it almost by accident, we can't help now but make you aware of it, even though you might never play it because it looks too damn scary.

Introducing ILL, the horror FPS from part-time-almost-full-time developer Team CLOUT.

In Asobo's A Plague Tale: Innocence, our first foray into plague-addled Europe in the 14th Century, we were confronted with a lot of unknowns as two innocent characters navigated one of the darkest periods in history. In its forthcoming sequel, A Plague Tale: Requiem, we're back as the youthful sibling pair, protector Amicia and rat-whisperer Hugo, though this time it's clear no punches will be pulled and the stakes higher than ever.

Which is actually saying a lot in the wake of the first game's heavy storytelling.

It's funny to think that at one point Nintendo didn't think Western audiences would get Fire Emblem. Now the franchise is considered a flagship in the JRPG/JTBG Nintendo stable, and fans can't get enough of it.

So much so, that it has made its way into the Musou genre, first with Fire Emblem Warriors, and now with Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes, which we've recently spent a fair amount of review time with.

In a new interview with Rebecka Coutaz, DICE's new general manager that stepped in just as EA and the studio launched Battlefield 2042, we learn that the studio hasn't moved onto the next game, and is instead committed to fixing the game. As one of the most disastrous launches in recent memory, the recent launch of the the game's heavily delayed Season 1: Zero Hour has been met with a more positive reaction from fans.

Where you steam from the rich, in space, but only pop-culture based merch and loot. SEGA and developer Creative Assembly (Total War, Alien: Isolation) are aware that creating a new shooter is jumping into "the most competitive genre in gaming", by HYENAS definitely looks and sounds very cool. A team-based snatch-and-grab, and then escape, out in space with some zero-g action thrown in.

There's more coming to Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Games before the month of June 2022 comes to a close, and there's some great stuff to dig into. Total War: Three Kingdoms is coming to PC, and as per our review, excelled when it came to "diplomacy, relationships, and character-driven battles". On the console and PC front Far Cry 5 is also coming.

Diablo Immortal the joint project by Blizzard and Chinese developer NetEase has seen its release in China delayed just days before it was set to go live. The news arrives after the studio's Weibo (social media platform) account was banned from making new posts last week - which adds an extra dose of strangeness to the announcement.

Damn you, Diablo 2: Resurrected. Damn you to he... oh, wait.


So it turns out the good job on the above Blizzard property from Vicarious Visions, who developed Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2, which then led to the team being absorbed by Blizz to become Blizzard Albany, meant that a planned follow-up to the successful relaunch/remake of THPS has been indefinitely shelved. At least that's according to the Birdman himself.

And by "classic shooter gameplay" we mean that Evil West from Flying Wild Hog is a traditional third-person actioner with a seemingly linear narrative path, power-ups and a progression economy, context-based environmental design, skill-trees and weapon upgrades and, most importantly, big bosse. And all tied to a tight and rewarding combat system.

Genre fusion of this juxtaposed level will be the new norm, as more and more games try new ways to cut through as the industry swells with great product and new devs. One such title that's doing just that, and which certainly jumped off the screen to us is Scrap Riders, a cyberpunk-set 16-bit game that fuses classic Point and Click Adventuring with Beat 'em Up mechanics.

Atari's golden age spans the 1970s and early 1980s, when the pixels were blocky and consoles arrived on the scene with sweet wood-paneling. And although Atari still continues to draw on its catalogue with retro-inspired consoles and remasters, Atari Mania actually sounds like something fun and cool. A WarioWare-style microgame celebration that sounds very cool.

Lionhead Studios released the classic movie studio management sim The Movies back in 2005, which in addition to putting you in charge of a studio let you actually make the movies and export them as little viewable cinematic shorts. It's a shame there hasn't been anything like it since, with indie outfit Odyssey Studios looking to change that with Moviehouse.

There's nothing wrong with retro-inspired projects and games that look to capture the feel and spirit of classics, in fact it's something we often share here at AusGamers. With Final Vendettaavailable now digitally on PC (Steam), Xbox, Switch, and PlayStation - and yeah, it's vibes are straight Final Fight. Capcom's classic arcade 'Beat 'em up' that first hit the seen in 1989.
