The Secret World to relaunch as free-to-play Secret World Legends

Despite praising its "innovation, atmosphere and charm", Phil felt Funcom's The Secret World was hamstrung by its weak combat and genre-typical MMO padding in his 2012 review. Later that year the developer's then new CEO Ole Schreiner suggested it "definitely had the tools" for a free-to-play-styled Secret World, and now it appears this will be realised: The Secret World is relaunching as Secret World Legends this spring and will be free-to-play. And here's a teaser:Despite Phil's relative reser

Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire sets sail for frontiers beyond mere tradition

Amid the Skyrims and Witcher 3s of the world, players hungered for a return to the classic roleplaying games of yesteryear. The first game saved Obsidian from drowning, and Pillars of Eternity 2 is ready to sail to a new world. “We had talked about it going all the way back to Pillars of Eternity,” Sawyer confesses almost shamefully. I begin to realise that, to Urquhart and Sawyer, Pillars of Eternity 2 is as much about the little things as it is the big. “I think a lot of people, whether consci

Unfortunately, open-wor

Soulstorm is darker, more sinister and goes places other games haven’t, says Oddworld Inhabitants

Following its original four game-spanning run which concluded in 2005, Oddworld Inhabitants revived its flagship Abe's Odyssey series in 2014. Announced last year, Oddworld: Soulstorm marks the series' next instalment, which promises an "all-new" Abe and a darker, more mature narrative.

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
