The Secret World to relaunch as free-to-play Secret World Legends

Despite praising its "innovation, atmosphere and charm", Phil felt Funcom's The Secret World was hamstrung by its weak combat and genre-typical MMO padding in his 2012 review. Later that year the developer's then new CEO Ole Schreiner suggested it "definitely had the tools" for a free-to-play-styled Secret World, and now it appears this will be realised: The Secret World is relaunching as Secret World Legends this spring and will be free-to-play. And here's a teaser:Despite Phil's relative reser

Will League of Legends ever conquer its support problem?

There’s just one problem: nobody wants to play support. Unfortunately, this is League of Legends, and nobody wants to play support. League of Legends offers a multitudes of ways to engage in the game, and no one wants to play support in any of them. In order to talk about the fact that nobody wants to play support, we’re going to have to ask ourselves why no one wants to play support. Autofill is one of those experiments: will people happily play support once in awhile if it means faster queues

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series release date set

Word of Telltale's narrative slant on Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy first surfaced amid last year's voice actors' strike, and was later confirmed at December's Game Awards. In January, US videogame retailer GameStop seemingly unveiled the game's plot and momentarily touted April 25 as its launch date. Telltale has now confirmed Guardians of the Galaxy will kick off its episodic run one week earlier on April 18, 2017. In the wake of an epic battle, the Guardians discover an artifact of unspeak

Watch Dogs 2 is getting four-player co-op later this year

Watch Dogs 2 has lots of forthcoming add-on content, and Ubisoft has been kind enough to lay it out for us in the form of a "content roadmap". There's stuff coming as soon as April, including a new PvP team-based mode called Showdown, as well as multiplayer motocross, eKart and drone races. It's the June stuff that's most interesting though, in particular support for 4-player parties "to explore the city and play activities together". That presumably doesn't include single-player missions, but i

Goodbye internet privacy: U.S. House of Representatives just killed FCC privacy rules

Last week, the U.S. Senate voted along party lines to stamp out strong FCC privacy regulations introduced in 2016. The privacy framework in these rules focuses on transparency, choice, and data security, and provides heightened protection for sensitive customer information, consistent with customer expectations. The Commission also revises its current telecommunications privacy rules to harmonize today's privacy rules for all telecommunications carriers, and provides a tailored exemption from th

6 things Destiny 2 needs to be a success on PC

Now, with the sequel potentially under six months away, I want to talk about what it needs to ensure success on PC. The leaked poster mentions the beta will take place on PS4, implying similar deals can be expected for Destiny 2. Note also that this year’s Resident Evil 7 was a ‘Play Anywhere’ title, meaning saves transferred automatically between PC and XB1. As mentioned above, The Vault of Glass raid is brilliant, and arguably the thing that persuaded players to stick with Destiny. It goes wit
