ELEX

Piranha Bytes have been doing the rounds for a while now, never quite hitting the big time, but building up a solid following with their rather unbalanced approach to open-world RPG goodness. I absolutely guarantee, if the studio name doesn’t ring any bells, Gothic and/or Risen certainly will. Yeah, it’s those guys, and yep, ELEX…

Warhammer Vermintide Death On The Reik DLC

Well here's a pleasant surprise, we'd assumed with the announcement of Vermintide 2 that development on content for the original game would have come to a stop. That assumption was rather wrong; Fatshark have just released Death On The Reik which introduces two new levels, Reikwald Forest and The River Reik, a new Ceremonial Dagger…

Ni No Kuni 2 Has A New Release Date and A New Trailer

This isn't the first release date revision for eagerly anticipated sequel Ni no Kuni 2, but hopefully it'll be the last. The game's been held back a little for some extra polish, which is something we can happily get behind – sure waiting sucks but so does having a buggy release. You can now look…

Conan Exiles Launch Date and Pricing Details

Funcom's latest stab at the Conan franchise now has a confirmed release date: 8 May 2018. We're not sure if that's a date relevant to Conan but if it is it's probably the day he heard lamentations (they're very precious to him) or drank something out of a skull. Along with the release we've got…

Dungeons 3

In Dungeons 2, the dungeon management genre diverged a long way from its dark and sadistic beginnings in Dungeon Keeper. It’s almost as if fighting the good guys had begun to rub off on the Great Evil. The missions were far more clinical, all the creatures were far better behaved, and even the Snotlings kept…

The Light May Yet Return In New Ni No Kuni 2 Trailer

We may not have gotten the first Ni No Kuni on PC but that shouldn't be a reason to not check out the beautiful looking sequel. The sequel's story is set hundreds of years after the events of the original game and players will play as Evan Pettiwhisker Tildrum, boy king of the cat tribe,…

Proceeds of Hellblade go to Charity Today

Also, there's a fairly lengthy accolades trailer that applauds the players, rather than the game. Consisting entirely of quotes and screenshots submitted by Hellblade's player base, using the in game Photo mode. I submitted a few of mine, though I can't quite tell if any of them were used. A lot of people, clearly had…

Shadow Of War 101 Trailer

Chief orcish shill, Bruz The Chopper provides the growly narration for the latest Middle Earth Shadow Of War trailer. He seems to really enjoy saying “epic” and other words you'd associate with Lord Of The Rings, but not many you'd associate with paid loot boxes in a full price game. Ooh, we almost sounded more…

Shadow Of War Warmonger Tribe Trailer

At this point you'd be forgiven for thinking Middle Earth Shadow Of War wasn't a game at all but rather a bunch of trailers of varying quality showing off a bunch of orc tribes. The latest tribe, Warmonger, is a faction who revere warfare. Basically, these guys like to hit things and think they're wasting…

Shadow of War Charity DLC Now Free

For those unaware, there was a DLC called Forthog Orc-Slayer made in memory of Michael Forgey. A Monolith employee who worked on Shadow of Mordor/War who died of cancer in March of last year. The intention was that profits garnered from sales of this content would be donated to the Forgey family to assist them…

Shadow Of War Mystic Tribe Trailer

We hope you like lots of flickering cuts and the disorientation they bring because the Mystic Tribe trailer above has it in spades. Up close panning with odd angles and disconcerting shapes aplenty to convey the tribe's mystical, scary themes. It's very heavy handed but at least it's not pimp orcs. Middle Earth Shadow Of…

Shadow Of War Campaign That Never Forgets Interactive Traile…

Unfortunately we couldn't embed the interactive version but you can go to the Shadow Of War official site to take a gander at that one. Basically, you get to watch a decently well shot bit of live action footage where Talion and his Orcs lay siege to a fortress and have a bit of a…
