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

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.

Revisiting the renaissance with Assassin’s Creed 2

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. It was really tight.”Given this merciless schedule, it’s remarkable how well Assassin’s Creed 2 turned ou

Everything new in Stellaris: Utopia, one of Paradox’s biggest game updates ever

Traditions (free patch feature)What’s new: Empires will now generate a new resource called Unity from building certain structures and taking certain actions. Prosperity helps you turn Space Resources and Space Labor into more sweet, sweet, space cash. Your pops can’t survive in non-Hive Mind empires, and non-Hive Mind pops in your own (including on worlds you’ve conquered) will be automatically consumed (literally turned into food) by the swarm.
