For those that need a refresher, Yooka-Laylee is a fantastic new platformer from ex-Rare developers that's very much a spiritual successor to Banjo Kazooie. Which naturally means that the entire world should mark the April 11, 2017 date down as the time to rekindle their love of classic 3D platforming. The crowdfunded game has a local price-point of AUD $59.95 when it launches for PS4 and Xbox One. Also, developer Playtonic Games has announced that development on the Wii U version has, err, switched to the Nintendo Switch!

The offer begin on Friday and will run through to next week.

As the creators of the brilliant Left 4 Dead the studio's next project looks to go back to the co-op mechanics of that title, but this time in a dark fantasy setting.

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.

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.

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.
