    Red Dead Redemption V, the mod that was going to recreate the wild west game’s map inside of Grand Theft Auto V , has been canceled. It was revealed last month, and modding team .White had planned to release a beta this summer. However, shortly after the team released a teaser trailer—which was quickly taken down—lead modder Mr. Leisurewear announced that the team had been “contacted” and would cancel the project. “I know this is hard pill to swallow, but as you may have noticed we did get conta

    Well, you better have a phone number ready because you’re not going to be able to do that for much longer without one. Valve has announced in a blog post that it’s now requiring all players to register a unique phone number if they want to play in ranked matches. Requiring a unique phone number for each ranked account will ideally prevent a noticeable number of players from doing this, resulting in a positive effect from players using their primary accounts. After that, accounts without a unique

  • There wasn’t much to Call of Duty: WWII’s announcement, but hey, that’s okay. Call of Duty news site CharlieIntel reported on leaked marketing material, which reveals WWII’s release date, beta, and co-op mode, among other things. According to the leak, Call of Duty: WWII launches on November 3, which isn’t surprising since that’s a Friday at the time of year when the series always tends to hit shelves. We do learn that it will feature the beaches of Normandy on D-Day, but that’s about the only d

  • Despite it failing to reach its Kickstarter target a while back, Sylvio 2 is still on the cards, developer Stroboskop confirms with both a new trailer and a vague release date. Standing out amid the foggy swamp of shit Slender clones that comprises much of horror gaming these days, the original excelled thanks to its adept voice acting and powerful atmosphere, its novel tape-recording mechanic, and its general theme of healing spirits rather than simply running away or jumping in fright. That (r

  • If so, you’re in luck, as a new trailer has arrived to introduce and explain Elex’s wacky premise. It’s all to do with a comet that came hurtling towards the world of Magalan, ruining much of civilization and seeing the rise of three distinct factions: the Medieval-ish Beserkers, the science-minded Clerics, and the Outlaws. But the comet also brought a mysterious substance, Elex, that would give the Berserkers magical powers, the Clerics advanced technology, and turn the Outlaws into drug-addled

  • The Witness designer Jonathan Blow has shown off an early prototype of a new game. While not official in any capacity, the unveiling happened during his talk at the Reboot Develop conference in Croatia. It looks like it’s a puzzle game that consists of pushing blocks around. He said that he “should make and ship” a game on this engine, so we could could end up seeing it come to fruition. And apparently, he’s already thrown together more than 25 hours of single-player gameplay, but he noted that

  • Activision announced Call of Duty: WWII with nothing but an image of a lone soldier. Reddit user Braderz_12 noticed the images (above) on the Call of Duty website’s login page (via GameSpot ). However, if you’re hoping to get a look at them on the site itself, the images appear to have been replaced. On top of this, Amazon has put up boxart for Call of Duty: WWII, and it features the same image of the soldier from the announcement. Call of Duty: WWII’s reveal is set for April 26 at 10 AM PT.

  • Back in March, Ubisoft announced that The Division was to get two free expansions later this year, with the first adding a much-requested loadout feature to its third-person shooter MMO. (Update: Thanks to commenter Shifted, who points out that Ubisoft has moved up the release of loadouts to patch 1.6.1, due this May.) The new feature will let you store up to six different character configurations, with each loadout reflecting the weapons, gear, skills, talents and mods you had equipped when you

  • There are only a couple of weeks left until Arkane’s Prey is finally out, so unless you’re on the fence, or you really can’t wait, you should probably try to resist watching any more trailers. To be fair, the following is an enjoyably silly and spoiler-free video made to coincide with Earth Day, which is a thing that is going on today. In the trailer, we’re afforded a glimpse of the game’s nifty Recycler machine, which will convert any junk you feed it into delicious crafting components (thereby

  • Gears of War mastermind Cliff Bleszinski, whose Boss Key Studios is currently at work on the team-based multiplayer FPS LawBreakers, warned during an address at the Reboot Develop conference today that the triple-A game development business “is a nearly unsustainable model.” As reported by GamesIndustry, Bleszinski compared the top tier of the industry to the American restaurant scene: “They’re not bad, they’re not great, they’re just there.” It’s not an unfamiliar argument: Games development is

  • To celebrate the announcement, the studio has teamed up with Bundle Stars to put together a multi-tier Panzer Corps Bundle, featuring the original game and up to 15 pieces of campaign DLC. For $3, you get Panzer Corps, which we called “a perfect introduction to the wonderful world of wargaming” in our 2011 review, and the Grand Campaign ’39 DLC. The Grand Campaign expansions are more specifically focused, and collectively provide a much more in-depth wargaming experience. “Each campaign can be s

  • Phil Savage: Bigger and betterOur production editor Tony Ellis today leaves PC Gamer after 14 years. Obviously this is a low for PC Gamer as a whole, but Tony is leaving us to go on to bigger and better things: including finishing his game. It’s the PC Gamer way. Specifically, my good fortune to work with PC Gamer team. As Chris Thursten noted when he left, anyone who’s worked for, or enjoyed PC Gamer, owes Tony their thanks.

  • Outlast 2, as we learned in March, will be out next week—April 25, to be precise. With the date slowly closing in, developer Red Barrels has released two separate trailers to celebrate the moment, one for the sequel, and one for the retail bundle coming on the same day, called Outlast Trinity. The trailer above is for Outlast 2, while the one below is for Outlast Trinity. It’s a disc-based package featuring Outlast, the Whistleblower DLC, and Outlast 2, which Red Barrels said in March would be r

  • So if you’ve been looking forward to it and don’t feel like waiting, have at it! No, we’re here because the previous game in the series, Syberia 2, is currently free on Origin, as part of the “On the House” program. These games are only free for awhile, and nobody ever seems to know for how long—but once you’ve got them, they’re yours to keep permanently. And it’s free, which, let’s face it, is pretty tough to beat as a selling point. Feast your eyes on the sinister-but-slightly-goofy Syberia 2

  • Case in point, Amazon has on sale a 4TB Seagate Barracuda HDD (ST4000DM005) for $100. The same drive series in 2.5-inch form go up to 5TB, while the 3.5-inch Barracuda Pro goes all the way to 10TB. The other difference between this and Pro models is the warranty—Seagate backs its Barracuda drives for years and the Pro versions at 5 years. It even beats the price on a refurbished Western Digital 4TB Blue drive, which goes for $105 on Newegg. You can grab the 4TB Seagate Barracuda here.

  • Shaun chose the minimalist platformer N++ as his Staff Pick for 2016, noting at the time that he’d managed to finish more than 500 levels up to that point. That sounds like an awful lot of levels, yet it only represents about a quarter of what the game has to offer. Or, more precisely, had to offer: Today’s launch of the free N++ Ultimate Edition update doubles its size to a ridiculous 4340 “hand-crafted, finely-tuned levels.” “Hardcore mode is all about skill, so it’s a true challenge for the U

  • A user has created an unofficial patch that bypasses Microsoft’s security check when attempting to update a Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 machine with a newer processor installed. Microsoft had been saying for quite some time that it would stop supporting Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 on machines running an Intel Kaby Lake or AMD Ryzen processor. Because the processor is not supported together with the Windows version you are currently using, your system will miss important security updates. And finally,

  • It appears that the rumor that Activision’s Call of Duty series would return to the Second World War in its next installment was true: A countdown at callofduty.com is leading to the “worldwide reveal livestream” of Call of Duty: WWII in the middle of next week. The site doesn’t reveal anything more than the setting, with an image of an American GI who’s clearly seen too much, and that Sledgehammer Games is the developer.
