Mordhau is a medieval multiplayer brawler with 64-player sieges

Mordhau bills itself as a "multiplayer medieval melee game featuring large open battles, siege engines, and mounted combat". We want fights to looks like fights without the endless spinning and back twisting that are common in some games of this genre." It's early days yet, but if Mordhau can build upon what's already there, and deliver on what it's now promising, it could be onto something special. And with For Honor out now, and Kingdom Come Deliverance and Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord due this

Quake Champions demos debut Blood Covenant arena

In what's been a busy week for id's incoming arena shooter, Quake Champions has teased its first arena—named Blood Covenant. As you'll see in the trailer below, Blood Covenant looks a bit like a souped up version of Quake 3's DM6 Arena—with its gothic masonry, incongruous metal plating, towering stone pillars, and weird blood bath/sacrificial altar-type central effect. "Warriors from all over the waking world have been trapped in the Dreamlands, where they must battle it out for eternity in Quak

FTL and Borderlands crash together in this co-op VR game from the makers of Chronos

Of course, there's more to From Other Suns than FTL with three-player co-op. Handling movement in first-person VR games has been one of the biggest challenges for the genre—and it's one that still lacks an elegant solution. Most VR games rely on teleportation to sidestep the nausea-inducing feeling of standing still physically while moving in-game. I watch from a fixed perspective as my character moves forward and when I stop moving my perspective snaps back into my body. To put it simply, it's

Revisiting the renaissance with Assassin’s Creed 2

We’re introduced to Ezio Auditore da Firenze, the historical protagonist of Assassin’s Creed 2, the moment he’s born. When designing Assassin’s Creed 2, Ubisoft Montreal first looked at reviews of the original to determine which areas needed to be improved. Work began on Assassin’s Creed 2 in early 2008 and, thanks to the tireless efforts of 300+ developers, it was released in November 2009.
