As the name suggest Skyblivion is a pretty huge undertaking by some fans to bring Oblivion's entire world and all of its quests into the Skyrim engine. In a new video that showcases some of the work done so far, it looks like they weren't kidding around as everything from the trees, to the armour, to the Ninroot models have been given a makeover to make them more in line with Oblivion. Impressive, most impressive.
The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series - A New Frontier is the next full season in the critically acclaimed series. Making it's debut on December 20, it will kick things off with not one but two full episodes 'Ties That Bind Part I' & 'Ties That Bind Part II'. Which, sounds pretty epic. There's also a launch trailer which comes alongside this news, and it features a notable new face. One that will be very familiar to fans of the comic book series.
And how it was very much more in line with the scripted cinematic feel of something like Call of Duty as opposed to the studio's earlier efforts -- including the first two Doom games. All of this and more is revealed in a fascinating new crowdfunded documentary called DOOM Resurrected. Part One 'To Hell & Back' is online now and offers an intimate and insightful look at the long gap between DOOM 3 and 2016's DOOM.
One of the lead designers of both The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and the game-within-a-game Gwent has moved on from CD Projekt RED to join Techland on its new fantasy RPG. The notable designer in question is Damien Monnier, and the move isn't as drastic as it might sound -- as both CD Projekt RED and Techland are based in Warsaw, Poland.
Dropping tomorrow, to give those Season Pass snobs a head start, the latest Battlefield 1 patch is set to bring a number of changes to the game in addition to the new map. And, the very cool crossbow grenade launcher. One of the notable new additions is the introduction of a long overdue Spectator Mode. But, an overhauled one that will also allow the player to free-roam the map, apply various camera filters, and take a god's eye view of the battle. In addition to the usual watching your squad mates get ambushed.
Although the latest patch for No Man's Sky focuses on a selection of fixes for the PS4 and PC title, there is one note that grabbed our attention. And that was, 'Space battles will now vary in size more and players should see bigger battles'. Now, if you're up to speed on your No Man's Sky backlash lore you might recall one of the general complaints from a number of players at launch was that the space battles didn't look anywhere near as epic as pre-release screens suggested.
Out Thursday for PC, Space Hulk: Deathwing will offer up four-player first-person co-op set on a huge Space Hulk -- aka a Giant Gothic Spaceship Thing. After debuting some pretty solid looking gameplay footage last month the launch trailer focuses on the more cinematic side of the game. Which includes nightmarish space visions. The Unreal Engine 4 Warhammer 40,000 title comes from Streum On Studio and Focus Home Interactive, and is currently 15% off on Steam.
Compared to last year's Black Ops the Third, this year's Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare sales declined nearly 50 percent in the month of November. In the U.S. that is. In turn Activision Blizzard share prices fell 20% from mid-October, with poor Call of Duty sales seen as the culprit. In the UK a similar drop was experienced in first week of sales of Infinite Warfare compared to last year's Black Ops the Third. No word on what the figures are like Down Under, but we'd guess that they'd be similar. Are we in the midst of Call of Duty fatigue?
Hot on the heels of some sweet DOTA 2 action on the weekend, which our very own Joaby soaked up like those magic bits of cloth* that you see in those infomercials, comes word of a massive 7.00 update. And it's a big one. We're talking a new character in the form of the Monkey King, a brand spanking new HUD, new talent trees, map changes, and plenty more.
