  • 4A Games has said previously that Metro Exodus will be more open than the previous games in the Metro series, but it won’t be a completely open world like that of Stalker. For one thing, individual levels in Exodus will be much larger than anything seen in the previous games. The biggest outdoor level in Last Light was roughly “200 meters to 100 meters,” Prokhorov said,. That means everything from weapons, attachments, and other loot, to “frozen stories” that reveal more about the game world and
    Metro Exodus is bigger than 2033 and Last Light combined

  • Fallout 76 has a nice photomode, which is a relief because it’s difficult to find a way to compliment the game these days. One of the features of the photomode is the ability to include a little postcard frame around the borders of the pictures you take. Reddit member PaulrusKeaton has been making lovely keepsake postcards from glitches, and other Fallout 76 players are joining in, painting a picture of a vacation gone completely buggy. (It helps to enlarge the postcards by clicking the upper ri

  • Now we’ve got a new video that digs deeper into what we can expect in our return to Hope County, 17 years after the bombs fell. There will be some returning characters from Far Cry 5, however, although they’ll understandably be changed by the passage of time (and a nuclear war). Far Cry: New Dawn will be centered around an outpost named Prosperity that you’ll be able to build out over the course of the game. But the game will also enable players to roam beyond Hope County in “expeditions” to oth

  • After revealing two very furry new legendary skins for the upcoming Overwatch Winter Wonderland event—Zarya the Bear and Lucio the Fox—Blizzard is taking things in a little bit of a different direction with skin reveal number three. It’s Mercy, and she’s the Sugar Plum Fairy.

  • Biomutant is a game about “a sort of violent raccoon that can alter its genetic material to gain super powers.” The new “gameplay sizzle” video released by publisher THQ Nordic has not changed my mind on that one bit. “You’ll create your own adventure as you explore the open world and what lies beneath its surface, by foot, mech, jet-ski, air-balloon and more,” it said. One thing the video does not have, however, is a release date. At the time of our preview BioMutant was expected to be out this

  • It’s been five years since Rust arrived, treating players to dangling dongs, rampaging bears, and a ruthless multiplayer survival experience. To celebrate this anniversary, a big, world-altering update is now live. Electricity has been added to the mix of tree-chopping, rock-breaking, gun-crafting, base-building, and (recently) hot-air ballooning. In five years, Rust has sold 7,457,075 copies, grossing $110,313,646, which includes bundles, DLC, and in-game sales. It’s also sold over 4 million sk

  • EA has announced that two demo sessions will take place prior to release, one set for January for “VIPs,” and another for the rest of us in February. The VIP demo will run January 25-27, 2019, and will be available to anyone who has preordered Anthem, or is an EA Access or Origin Access subscriber. (They’re basically the same thing, but EA Access is for the Xbox, and I guess being on a different platform meant it needed a different name.) The “open” demo will run February 1-3, 2019, and as the n

  • I hear there’s a new Super Smash Bros. out for the Nintendo Switch—and not the PC, for some strange reason—but that’s not the Smash Bros. I’m talking about today. I’m talking about Smash for the Wii U, which is quite playable on the PC thanks to the Cemu emulator. It gets even weirder if you think about the fact that Daisy in Smash Bros. is actually just a palette swap for Peach, so this is actually Peach-Daisy-Ridley, but let’s not go there. There are many, many other mods out there for the Sup

  • As it turns out, Intel has a separate team working on 7nm. According to Dr. Renduchintala, the root causes of the challenges Intel faced with 10nm “goes back to the early definitions of 10 nanometers in 2014.” “14[nm] and 10[nm] were really about double-patterning and quad-patterning in the absence of EUV,” Dr. Renduchintala said. Intel’s 7nm manufacturing technology uses extreme ultraviolet lithography (EUVL) with a much smaller, more precise laser wavelength of 13.5nm for some of the layers. I

  • Path of Exile: Betrayal, the ARPG’s latest expansion, is out today. To stop them, you’ll need to hunt down members from the organisation’s four divisions and ruin their plans. What you do after you defeat them is where the new system becomes really interesting. The good news is all those safehouses contain lots of lovely loot—the real reason you’re saving the world. Check out the update page for more details.

  • “Our intent is to align the Microsoft Edge web platform simultaneously (a) with web standards and (b) with other Chromium-based browsers. This will deliver improved compatibility for everyone and create a simpler test-matrix for web developers,” Microsoft said. He also acknowledged that Microsoft’s decision could make it more difficult for Firefox to prosper, depending on what web developers and businesses who create services and websites do. “If one product like Chromium has enough market share

The Magic Pro League will feature 32 of the world’s top-ranked players, who will be offered “play and streaming contracts worth $75,000,” Wizards said.

  • Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey flings us back 10 million years to the origins of humanity. Announced a few years ago by Assassin’s Creed creator Patrice Désilets and his team as Panache Digital Games, we’re only now getting a look at it in action. In the first part, ten million years ago, there’s a single ape swinging through the trees before getting devoured by a snake. Finally, just shy of three million years ago, a band of hunters encounter and kill a huge saber-toothed cat. It’s an open-wo

  • It’s a chilly, snow-themed island called Vikendi, bringing with it new weather, a new gun and the coolest way to get around a battlefield: snowmobiles. There’s a ‘60s cosmodrome, complete with rocket, and a even quirky dinosaur theme park. “In every map, you’re always going to have these iconic, central locations that really lend themselves to hot-dropping,” Curd says. Some of PUBG Corp’s artists took a trip to Slovenia where they found a dinosaur park, inspiring the one in-game. The developers

  • The Block, a flat concrete lot, just replaced Risky Reels on Fortnite’s battle royale map. Think back to the long forgotten age of this morning when Fortnite Season 7 and the new creative mode went live. The Block will be where the best player-made creations are put on display for everyone, so long as they make the cut. Epic says the feature and creative mode are still fairly new and rough, so you’ll need to stick to the following rules to put whatever you make up for consideration. Epic is alwa

  • After building a spectacularly large audience with Fornite, Epic is turning its game launcher into a Steam-like store—though one that offers developers a larger revenue share. The first games it’s offering are now visible on the Epic Store . First of all, Subnautica and Super Meat Boy, both great games, are going to be free for a limited time, starting later in December. But also: free games. We’d never heard of a game called Hades until now, and yet here it is, available on the Epic Store in Ea

For a brief period today, players who logged into Bethesda’s website to view or update their technical support tickets were able to view everyone else’s support tickets, too.

    If you’re having trouble entering the Blind Well PvE arena in Destiny 2, you’re not alone. The instructions are to walk into the Blind Well slowly, via the right side hallway while hugging the wall. Walking slowly into the arena has apparently been a trick to expedite matchmaking for a while, but it’s funny to see Bungie openly acknowledging it. Here’s their tweet:We have identified an issue with matchmaking within the Blind Well. It’s become clear that we made the initial Power requirements for

    First announced at Microsoft’s 2013 E3 press conference, fantasy roguelike Below is finally releasing on December 14 – just in time to meet its 2018 release window. Below is a roguelike: it has a procedurally generated world full of dark dungeons and ominous outdoor environments, and permadeath. There’s plenty of games like this in 2018, but the art style of Below will certainly set it apart. “If I’m not bleeding out from an encounter with my little red friends, I’m contending with an empty stom
