  • 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

  • We waited with bated breath for news on Xbox Project Scarlett at X019. We sat down with the Xbox exec at X019 in London to discuss Xbox Scarlett’s absence and what Microsoft Game Studios is focusing on when it comes to Xbox Project Scarlett games. Where’s Project Scarlett? Despite not explicitly discussing Xbox Project Scarlett, Xbox’s upcoming game lineup does give us a pretty good taste of what to expect when it comes to next generation Xbox games.

  • It’s a co-op survival game called Grounded, made by a small team at Obsidian that wanted to try something different. And it’s definitely different, both from Obsidian’s past work and the other survival games you can play on PC today. The natural question for everyone is: Why a survival game? (Image credit: Roby Atadero)”We’ve been interested in doing a survival game for quite a while now,” said Atadero. You can expect more of a focus on story in Grounded than many other survival games, though wi

  • Xbox Games Pass is expanding. On the eve of X019, the annual event for all things Xbox, the bigwigs at the gaming platform saw fit to announce a new fleet of titles coming to its subscription-based game library, Xbox Games Pass – with some already being available. But perhaps the highlight is the sheer number of Final Fantasy games coming to the service – including Final Fantasy 7 (not the 7 remake), Final Fantasy 8: Remastered, and Final Fantasy 15, but there’s a whole load of other FF titles m

  • “It’s definitely a surprise,” game director Adam Brennecke says as we’re chatting about the newly-announced Obsidian title, Grounded. But Grounded has been in the works for a little while, giving Obsidian plenty of time to explore outside of its comfort area. According to Brennecke, the game will get harder as the story progresses, and some of the insects will grow more hostile. And like any Obsidian game, Grounded will navigate the notion of how a player affects the game world (how many times d

  • It’s a survival game. The spirit of Honey I Shrunk the Kids is coursing through Grounded, a co-op survival game that casts you as a teenager, shrunk down to ant size. For example, like every survival game, Grounded has hunger and thirst meters (you’ll take damage if you let these deplete, though it will never kill you). Obsidian is actually planning to launch Grounded in Early Access next year, on Steam and Xbox Game Pass, to help shape those features. The way that we’re looking at it, it’s how

  • Roku has announced its upcoming Black Friday deals that will include a substantial discount to its entire family of players – the return of the Roku SE at just $18 and a new series of Roku TVs made exclusively for Walmart. The biggest steal, however, is on the Roku SE, which will be available for a deal-busting $18 in stores and online starting on November 28 until supplies run out. For most folks that’s probably not a deal-breaker as many of us still have a second or third TV that’s only capabl

  • When the Radeon RX 550 first debuted, cryptocurrency mining was just getting its legs, and Ethereum had not yet shot up in value. It’s a much different landscape now two and a half years later, though be that as it may, ASRock has quietly introduced another RX 550 graphics card. The new Phantom Gaming Radeon 550 2G is ASRock’s second RX 550 card. That said, there will likely be a lot of Black Friday deals on Polaris cards, particularly in the mid-range section as vendors look to clear room for R

  • RGB lighting isn’t going anywhere, that much is clear at this point. “No other RGB fan comes close to the brightness and vibrancy of QL RGB.

  • While continuing its work on Sea of Thieves, Rare is developing a brand new game called Everwild. What is Everwild? Well, it’s a vocal track with lots of “oooh-eee-ahh-oooohs,” a band of adventurers, and some very cute, No Man’s Sky-looking animals. Otherwise, we really don’t know anything about Everwild. It’s a forested world with some cute animals in it, and presumably multiple players.

  • Raw Fury revealed a new game during today’s X019 livestream today called West of Dead, a twin-stick voice set in a supernatural Wild West that looks like a between Diablo and Jonah Hex, starring Ghost Rider. The western setting is actually Purgatory, an ever-changing world where dead man William Mason has, for reasons unknown, been brought back to fiery-headed life to do what he does—which is, as far as I can tell, kill everything that moves. But is there more to this story than meets the eye? T

  • The next free monthly update for Sea of Thieves is near, arriving on November 20. It’s called The Seabound Soul, and will contain a ghostly new Tall Tale, plus a new tool for bombarding your fellow pirates: fireballs. The new Tall Tale will invite players to join pirate Captain Pendragon and chase down a spooky ghost ship, the Ashen Dragon. And it looks like you’ll need to use your trusty bucket for more than just bailing out your sinking ships, because flaming cannonballs are being added. The t

  • At the X019 fan event in London today, Microsoft rolled a trailer for a new game from Dontnod Entertainment that looks a whole lot like Life Is Strange. But it’s not: It’s a new game that appears to be in the same vein, called Tell Me Why. Set in beautiful small-town Alaska, Tell Me Why features true-to-life characters, mature themes and gripping choices.” The trailer ends by saying “all chapters coming Summer 2020,” so it seems Tell Me Why is an episodic adventure just like Life Is Strange.

  • Microsoft’s Project xCloud game streaming service will add support for Sony’s DualShock 4 controller in early 2020, the company announced at X019 today. This will come as part of a broader update for Bluetooth controllers including Razer game pads, but the DualShock callout feels deliberate.
