Swot up on Far Cry 4 with the 8 minute launch trailer

Comment
Far Cry 4 launch trailer

Far Cry 4 is out in less than a week, and just in case you missed the barrage of trailers detailing every single aspect of this rather large game, Ubisoft has put together yet another, teaching you everything you need to know about the open world shooter.

It’s eight minutes long, which is quite long for a trailer, but not very long for a class.

Comment
GOG Big Fall Sale

GOG is attempting to alleviate the misery left by naked trees, cold weather and rain by putting on its Big Fall Sale. Over 700 discounted games are up for grabs, some up to 90 percent off, and GOG’s throwing gifts around too, both games and films. 

The sale kicked off just an hour ago, and you can already get yourself a freebie. Mount & Blade can be yours for absolutely nothing, or you could buy the whole series for £6.37. And remember to keep an eye out for the daily deals and flash sales.

Wildstar gets its "biggest patch yet": Mystery of the Genesis Prime

Comments2
Wildstar

After years of cutting, development and self-improvement, Wildstar is content. Happy. That’s good to hear, isn’t it? Oh nope, hang on, there’s more. Message reads: ‘Wildstar is content patched’.

That’s something for its players, at least, who now have access to another zone, The Defile, and a new solo story: Journey into OmniCore-1.

All about that bass: Dovetail Games Fishing now on Steam Early Access

Comments2
Dovetail Games Fishing

You might remember Dovetail Games as RailSimulator.com - the Chatham outfit currently coupling the Oculus Rift to Train Simulator 2015. But after too many afternoons spent staring wistfully out at the English countryside beyond the buffet carriage, they’ve expanded their remit to include bass and carp: the freshwater variants of the East Midlands express service.

Are Traveller's Tales building a LEGO Jurassic Park? (Yeah, probably)

Comments4
LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham

LEGO Batman 3 has been out for a day. That’s physically enough time to squeeze in the 14 hours required to play the thing, so of course somebody has done it.

At the end of LEGO Batman 3, there’s a fun credit sequence in which LEGO Adam West and LEGO Burt Ward scale an endless building. They’re subject to a long stream of gags and cameos - one of which has got tongues speculatively wagging about a tie-in Jurassic Park game.

Pool Nation FX will be the best pool game on PC

Comment
Pool Nation FX

When I saw Pool Nation FX at EGX there was a crowd of people round the monitor, muttering advice to the player at the keyboard, and holding their breath each time the ball rolled towards the pocket. If it weren’t for the lack of pints, the giant Call of Duty booth below, and the people walking around in cosplay you could mistake it for a scene at the pub.

That’s exactly what CherryPop are aiming for: a pool table at your desktop. One you can play with friends the way you would at the pub. It also offers more than your local, you can play in tournaments, shoot frames at tables in settings all over the world, and sign up to Fifa-style leagues with both friends and strangers.

It’s easily going to be the best pool game on our platform.

SkySaga: Infinite Isles is a free to play Minecraft with quests

SkySaga: Infinite Isles

Radiant Worlds, the studio that rose like a phoenix from the ashes of Blitz Games, have just announced SkySaga: Infinite Isles, a disgustingly colourful, voxel-based and procedurally generated adventure game. It's... well, it looks a whole lot like Minecraft, obviously. I don't think we can continue having a grown up conversation about SkySaga until we address that particularly blocky elephant in the room.

But wait, don't go! Here's a bunch of unique things SkySaga is doing that make it a little less like Minecraft, and a little more like a cool thing worth being interested in.

How StarCraft II's Legacy of the Void Archon mode is going to work

Comments6
Legacy of the Void

Legacy of the Void will make your Protoss fantasies come true, so long as you’re not responsible for some of the odder space-elf fan art available on Google Images. But it’ll also introduce something potentially more exciting to the world’s biggest RTS: shared-base co-op played out on one-versus-one maps. 

Blizzard have dubbed the idea Archon Mode. And since BlizzCon 2014 wrapped, they've been busy explaining its ins and outs.

Final Stand DLC will bring bows to Battlefield 4 with explosive and sniper bolts, say dataminers

Comment
Final Stand

With another Hunger Games on the horizon and no new Crysis sequel in sight, it’s up to DICE to cater to our primeval bow-and-arrow needs. A recent Battlelog update suggests they’ve obliged with a brand new compound bow for Battlefield 4. Named in the code as the ‘Spyder’, the weapon comes with a range of colourful ammunition for exploding, illuminating or making small holes in your prey.

Guild Wars 2 is going on an egg hunt with Tangled Paths from November 18

Comment
Guild Wars 2

You know how people get about eggs. They’ll scour supermarket shelves for duck dumpings to turn into extra-creamy omelettes. So you can imagine the fuss over dragon eggs, which are not only larger but far rarer - the two traits yolkonauts prize above all else.

The situation’s much the same in Tyria, where rumours of a wyrm zygote have given every faction in Guild Wars 2 a reason to bash each other in once again. That's the premise of Tangled Paths, the latest episode in ArenaNet’s Living World Season 2.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive's Operation Vanguard acquaints players with 'campaigns'

Comment
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Operation Vanguard is the latest in a lengthy line of community initiatives Valve have run for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive over the last year and a half. In now-established fashion, players can pay for temporary access to six of the game’s best community maps on Valve’s dedicated servers - and the mappers will receive a cut of the profits.

New this time are operation campaigns: a progression system that strings together mission objectives in one of the best first-person shooters on PC and rewards players with extra cases or weapon drops.

The Forest gets a co-op multiplayer update because the cannibals were getting hungry

Comments2
The Forest

The Forest is simply horrible. I’m forever grateful that it came out before I started Playing With Myself (it’s the joke that keeps on giving), or I would have felt obligated to record what can only be described as some of my lowest moments. Standing in a cave, shouting at a zippo lighter, wishing I was playing a game where the chances of getting attacked by cannibals and then dragged into their underground lair to await dinnertime were very low, it was a bad time. But I did have, I’ll admit, a very good time having this bad time. 

If you are a fellow Stockholm Syndrome sufferer, then you might be pleased to know you can now recruit friends to join you on this nightmarish island, as The Forest now supports co-op multiplayer.

Fantasy Eugenics Simulator 2014: Massive Chalice appears on Steam Early Access

Comments6
Massive Chalice lands on Steam Early Access

I live in a flat absent any chalices. I confess that I’m not always up to date on what’s in my cupboards, but I did just check, and no, I have no chalices. I did just by a measuring jug, though! That was exciting. Anyway, my chalice-less existence might be at an end, because Double Fine’s fantasy tactics game, Massive Chalice, has just hit Steam Early Access.

It’ll set you back £17.24/$22.49, which includes a week-long 25 percent discount.

Pillars of Eternity comes in two flavours: Hero Edition and Champion Edition

Comments2
Pillars of Eternity pre-order

If you were a bit late to the Kickstarter party and never got a chance to back Obsidian’s Pillars of Eternity campaign, you’ve got a second chance to get some of those backer rewards. The game is now available for pre-order, with two editions, one of which comes with a bunch of “premium bonuses”. The regular edition will also contain some mystery items.

This special edition, the Champion Edition, is the version that backers who pledged for a copy of the game will get, at no extra cost.

Topic of the Week: What do you want to do in Warlords of Draenor above all else?

Topic of the Week: Warlords of Draenor

Tomorrow night, World of Warcraft will grow another limb, a continent shaped one that you’ll need to travel back in time and leap across the universe to witness. Warlords of Draenor’s is just a bit silly. But it’s also full of potentially nifty new additions to the decade-old MMO, like player-run garrisons and lots of raids and dungeons, one of which is on a blooming train. 

For our Topic of the Week, we want to know what you want to do on Draenor above all else. Is it building up your garrison, hiring workers and even mercenaries to help you as you kill countless new green-skinned foes? Or maybe you’ll be rushing through all the new content so you can start raiding? Let us know in the comments.

Even five minutes is too much: Five Nights at Freddy's 2 launches

Comments4
Five Nights at Freddy's 2 launches

I’m on the night shift, writing news and drinking things that say “Warning: this amount of caffeine is fatal” on the label. The light in my study is out of commission, so I’m using a lamp that’s not very effective. Most of the light comes from my monitor as I browse press releases, forums and emails. The usual routine. 

But something’s not quite right. Is that a noise coming from Steam? When did I even log into Steam? Wait… is that an animatronic bear? It’s moving towards me now. I think I need to stop breathing. Five Nights at Freddy’s 2 just appeared on Steam and it’s probably going to kill me.

Just Cause 3 will have you blowing up a fictional Mediterranean archipelago next year

Comments2
Just Cause 3

Teases and leaks over the last year confirmed the likelihood of a new Just Cause from Avalanche, and unless Game Informer has taken to just making up the game featured on the mag’s cover, then we now know for sure that it’s a real thing and it’s due out next year. 

As expected, the third game in the open world series will feature grapple hooks, vertical shenanigans, angry helicopters, plenty of explosions and a new dictator to harass.
