  • 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

  • Kalypso Media has announced that Tropico 6 for PC has been delayed until January 2019, with the dictator sim releasing for consoles in summer 2019. According to a statement from the publisher, Tropico was delayed from a 2018 release date to give the development team at Limbic Studios more time to polish the title. Tropico is a city building/dictator sim which sees you playing as the leader of the island state of Tropico (AKA El Presidente). Tropico 6 is the latest addition to the Tropico series
    Tropico 6 delayed to January 2019 – and console dictators have an even longer wait

  • Devil May Cry 5 is real, it stars Nero, and it’s coming in spring 2019. Don’t worry, the teaser ended with a quick appearance from original Devil May Cry protagonist Dante as well. But still, nice of Microsoft to give Nero and friends a great big stage to do their debut on, right? Oh, and one last thing: despite the fact that Microsoft now owns Ninja Theory, which developed DmC: Devil May Cry, Devil May Cry 5 is being built internally at Capcom. We’ll just have to wait and see what Ninja Theory
    Devil May Cry 5's coming in spring 2019 and it stars Nero, Dante, and a wise-talking mechanic

  • Toys R Us’ status as the most important toy store in town left it cavalier, if cocky at times, according to conversations with former employees, executives and industry insiders, who spoke to CNBC on the condition of anonymity. The story begins with Lazarus, the store’s visionary who wanted the “R” written backward — an ode to childlike scrawl. Lazarus, who has been described as one of the great merchants of his time, expanded a baby furniture store he owned into a toy store. In its heyday in th
    Toys R Us built a kingdom and the world's biggest toy store. Then, they lost it.

  • Battlefield V isn’t interested in boots treading the same old ground of World War II. Instead, as I play through the War Stories that make up its single-player campaign, the big D this time around is ‘Diversity’. “That perspective really ties into what we want to do in Battlefield V,” he explains. Berlin explains that the well-received tank mission in Battlefield 1 had influenced their decision to create a tank mission in Battlefield V, for which there was only one candidate. The gun alone is th

  • The instant it was announced that a second season had been greenlit, I, like everyone else, rejoiced. Most shows’ second, third, ad nauseum seasons aren’t even good. The trouble with TV is no one knows if the first season will be a hit. Read more The most exciting new TV shows coming in 2018There are, naturally, exceptions to the rule – note the headline says 95 per cent – and these are the finest shows ever made: The West Wing, The Sopranos, The Wire, Breaking Bad, The Shield, Six Feet Under, M
    Is it just me, or should 95% of TV shows only get one season?

  • StarCraft 2 cheats are great for blasting through the game’s singleplayer campaigns, whether you’re taking on Wings of Liberty, Heart of the Swarm, or Legacy of the Void. A word of warning before you start breaking the game: all of the following cheats will disable achievements for that campaign. These cheats don’t work in multiplayer. Applying unofficial cheats or cracks to multiplayer is a big no-no, obviously, and might get you banned from To use these cheats, simply press enter d

  • Who would have thought that scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis would return to the role that made her famous 40 years later? Certainly not me, but having seen the new Halloween movie and spoken to Curtis herself about why she chose to return to the franchise, I can say that it was well worth the wait. I sat down with leading lady Curtis (watch the full interview above) to talk about Halloween and ask her what fans can expect from the upcoming movie. It has to do with something that was in my bedroom
    Jamie Lee Curtis talks Halloween Easter eggs, the possibility of *another* sequel, and more

  • Battlefield 1 had a surprisingly strong singleplayer campaign, splitting it up into several distinct ‘War Stories’ that teleported us from the mud-and-blood of the western front to the semi-mythology of Lawrence of Arabia. World War II is a different beast in the popular imagination, so it was always going to be interesting to see how DICE would approach the singleplayer campaign for Battlefield 5. That’s why it’s refreshing to see Battlefield 5 get much the same War Story treatment as Battlefie
    Battlefield 5's singleplayer offers surprisingly fresh perspectives on World War II

  • While Sony’s streaming service for video games once seemed like an outlier, it now seems everyone’s getting in on the action. Real-time game streaming isn’t quite the fantastical pipe dream it was even a few years ago. Essentially, PlayStation Now is a monthly subscription service that allows you to stream legacy or current-gen PlayStation games, much as you would stream a TV episode or video online. The case for PlayStation NowPS Now has been around in some form or another since 2014, when Sony

The collaboration delivers what is, in essence, an accelerator for tech start-ups that can help fast track a business from ‘idea to impact in just 20 weeks’. Within this innovative network there are already 50+ startups that reach over 100 global cities. Park & Diamond’s idea is one of those things that leaves you wondering why nobody has done it before.

  • Yet, after testing the 2019 Toyota Avalon, it’s obvious there’s a new feature that helps when the car is parked. The tech, called Bird’s Eye View Camera with Perimeter Scan, first debuted in the 2016 RAV 4. It’s the first time I’ve tested it in the Avalon, which is a new redesign of the sedan. Perimeter Scan might freak you out a little because it’s so unique – it looks like a real-time video.

  • What are the chances of Red Dead Redemption 2 coming to PC? The open-world western remains as yet unconfirmed on desktops, but we’re fairly certain it’ll appear at some point down the line. With this in mind, have a swatch at its launch trailer above. As we learned earlier this week, Red Dead Redemption 2 is 60 hours long and it seems its online component is still being written. In an interview with Vulture, the developer’s Dan Houser also made mention of developers working 100-hour weeks in-hou

  • Fallout 76 looks to be no different, too, as Bethesda takes inspiration from the state’s famous history of cryptozoology to design some of the weirdest, wackiest Fallout creatures yet. David Sibray is a historian and local expert in West Virginia folklore, and the founder of the West Virginia Explorer, a travel and history publication devoted to the mountain state itself. Since then, the monster has become a symbol of Braxton County, so you bet he’s showing up in Fallout 76. I think the Fallout

  • The Nokia 7.1 packs flagship features into a beautiful design that costs a mere £299 in the UK and $349 in the US. The design is the first thing you notice about the Nokia 7.1. There’s a level of durability and craftsmanship in the Nokia 7.1 that you don’t typically get from phones in this price range, making it a joy to hold. The Nokia 7.1 has a modern, petite notch and an ultra-sharp 2280×1080 pixel IPS LCD screen that stretches right to the edge of chassis. The power of Android OneAs an Andro

  • PUBG’s latest PC-specific update—the 23rd since launch, for those counting—adds a new pistol, and tinkers with its blue zone’s visuals. In a bid to make it “less difficult to see through”, the blue zone’s opacity has been adjusted. Likewise, PUBG Corp says it has “mitigated an issue where the blue zone’s opacity difference was too strong depending on the map and weather type.” Elsewhere, PUBG’s PC 1.0 Update #23 adds an on-screen key guide function, which display dynamic key guides relevant to w

  • The Swedish government has unveiled the world’s most advanced testing facility for autonomous cars. The facility is a joint project of the state-owned Research Institutes of Sweden (RISE) and Chalmers University of Technology, and engineers hope it will accelerate development of autonomous vehicles up to 10 times. Between simulation and realitySafety is one of the biggest sticking points preventing widespread adoption of autonomous cars and trucks – partly due to the huge difference between full

  • Every year the Sync Awards celebrates the best in film, TV and games music syncing. This year’s ceremony takes place tonight, October 18, in the Grand Connaught Rooms in London, and a few big games are in competition. Since Epic put Mad World over a Gears of War trailer game marketing hasn’t quite been the same.
