  • 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

    Since then, Bungie has adamantly and unequivocally insisted that the killing is real, and Cayde-6 is dead. But Nathan Fillion, the voice actor behind the character, told Kotaku that he doesn’t buy it. So if Fillion doesn’t portray Cayde-6 in Forsaken, who does? None other than voice actor extraordinaire Nolan North, who already has a prominent role in Destiny 2 as the player’s Ghost. “Unfortunately, sometimes these things don’t work out,” Fillion said, explaining that he was simply too busy to a

    Epic Games promised big things with Fortnite’s first year of official competition, investing $100 million in prize money alone. The scale of the genre means aspects of the competition will always be out of sight, or difficult to parse. I can’t speak to the casters’ knowledge of Fortnite, but the impression they left was that maybe one of them were regular players. Expecting competitors to play as aggressively as they would in a public match was Epic’s second major mistake. No $250,000 competitio

    Major League Baseball hosted the finals of its VR Home Run Derby today at the All-Star FanFest to see who could hit the most virtual dingers. Played in MLB Home Run Derby VR (which is on Steam, currently with mixed reviews) the event saw a kid named Coop versus a kid named Chuck—two very good baseball names—make it to the finals. It was weird for me, for a moment at least, to see full grown adults stepping in against some very young kids in the derby. In a VR baseball game. But virtual baseball

    Electronic Arts has confirmed that Battlefield 5 will have an open beta, and that it will take place sometime in the first part of September. “It’s worth mentioning that TTK is not just determined by how powerful weapons are. For instance, it’s also related to how fast the game lets you react to being fired at,” EA wrote. “There will be several more tests of Battlefield 5—internal and external—before the October launch, and we will be using our learnings from the first Alpha to test further and

    Last year’s Fallout: The Board Game was a pretty good solution to an age-old problem: Fallout didn’t have enough hexes. It looks like Fantasy Flight Games was happy with it, too, since we’ve got an expansion on the way. The scenarios look to be inspired by the original Fallout games, with locations like the Brotherhood of Steel’s Lost Hills Bunker, the Cathedral, and the settlement of Arroyo. Perhaps the most interesting part of the expansion is the five new characters, doubling the character co

A major combat overhaulWhen you log into World of Warcraft tomorrow, your character’s spells and abilities are going to be pretty different.

    For a number of reasons, the Warcraft film did not turn out to be a career highlight for director Duncan Jones. Hopefully he’ll have better luck with the Rogue Trooper flick that he confirmed earlier today he’s working on. Incredibly excited to confirm I’m working on an adaption of Gerry Finley-Day & Dave Gibbons’ 2000AD comic ROGUE TROOPER! His other credits include Mute, the Jake Gyllenhaal flick Source Code, and Moon, a modestly-budgeted sci-fi film starring Sam Rockwell for which Jones won a

    One of those is Zotac’s GTX 1080 Mini card, which is currently $469.99 on Amazon. That’s $30 lower than the previous price, and $30 lower than the MSRP for a GTX 1080 Founders Edition. The card has 8GB of GDDR5X memory, with a base clock of 1620 MHz and a boost of 1759 MHz. You can buy the Zotac GTX 1080 Mini from Amazon. On a similar note, the Zotac GTX 1070 Mini is currently $399.99 on Amazon, but that’s only a $20 drop from the previous price.

    It’s only been a few weeks since the “looking for group” feature and endorsements were rolled out to Overwatch, but they’re already having a positive effect. Game director Jeff Kaplan shared some early stats in a brief forum post indicating that abusive behavior has gone down dramatically in the Americas and Korea since the features went live. It’s kind of a preemptive moderation system: Instead of punishing bad behavior, it rewards positive play and attitudes, although the specifics of the prom

    Unfortunately what you see above is not an actual, playable version of Tetris. It’s a physics simulation made in Cinema 4D and posted to C4D4U’s YouTube Channel. I love gummi candy and these are the loveliest, chewiest, slipperiest gummi Tetris pieces I’ve ever seen (granted, they’re the only gummi Tetris pieces I’ve ever seen). The video above is the eighth iteration of C4D4U’s Tetris simulations. If you like it—and how can you not, it’s beautiful and squishy—there are plenty more neat simulati

    France won the nation’s second World Cup yesterday, beating Croatia 4-2 at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow. Known in-game as ‘Take the L’, the emote entered Battle Royale as a Tier 31 reward of the third season’s Battle Pass. Griezmann might have chosen a less inflammatory Fortnite emote, mind you. But, hey, he was in the process of bringing home his country’s first World Cup in 20 years. With a similar time frame in mind (albeit the last time Scotland qualified for an international tournament),

  • Nightdive Studios has shared a handful of System Shock remake screenshots, some concept artwork and assets, and details on its upcoming ‘Adventure Alpha’. As explained in this Kickstarer backer update, the game’s Adventure Alpha is its September milestone, and will be “reminiscent” of the original with its difficulty set to zero. Nightdive says it’s aiming to have everything on that wrapped up by September—whose original textures look something like this:”Keep in mind these are the original text

  • Sekiro, From Software’s next game, subverts nearly everything we’ve come to expect from Dark Souls, said Steven after a hands-off demo at E3. One major change is its resurrection mechanic, which lets players revive themselves immediately without returning to a checkpoint. And despite how it might sound, game director Hidetaka Miyazaki says this can make Sekiro harder than Souls, not easier. “There are three ways death influences Sekiro,” Miyazaki tells the PS Blog. “There’s one thing I’d like to

  • We’ve reached the next stage of that with Capcom’s Resident Evil 2 remake. Below, I’ve collected my thoughts on the factors that face developers in remaking games now, touching upon projects like Pathologic 2, the System Shock remake and Resident Evil 2. You couldn’t really do that style of game now—by Resident Evil 0 on GameCube in 2002, critics were burning out on this formula, and it’s ultimately why Resident Evil 4’s series revamp happened. That doesn’t mean that interpretation would’ve been
