The Swedish survival game Raft sails out of early access

Raft is being developed by Swedish Redbeet Interactive and has been in early access since 2018. Now, however, it is over, because it reached version 1.0, with its largest update ever. The update adds above all, the last chapter of the game's plot, and also three new places to visit: Varuna Point, which was a building where the world elite would seek protection, but which was abandoned before construction was completed; Temperance, which is a snow-covered area where the water has not reached

Diablo Immortal now has the worst user ratings on the entire Metacritic

Diablo Immortal is the biggest launch in the series history, according to Blizzard. But that does not stop it from also being shrouded in controversy and disappointment. Although many people like the game, there are also many who do not take the game's micro-transactions lightly, as they think it goes over the limit of what is decent even in a free to play game. This led to the game shortly after its release becoming the Blizzard title with the worst user rating (0.5 out of 10) on Metacritic, bu

New Blood is a Fallout-like role-playing game - familiar names develop

During the non-E3 week, lots of games were announced, many of which first disappeared under the radar. But every thing has its time, and now we can tell about New Blood , a Fallout -like role-playing game from some of the brains behind Fallout , Van Buren and Planescape: Torment . The studio is aptly named New Blood Interactive, and they reportedly work on several titles in parallel. But perhaps most interesting is New Blood , a game that CEO Dave Oshry of PC Gamer described as "his dream g

Daedalic and Nacon have finally nailed a date for The Lord of the Rings: Gollum, and the release is just over three months away. On September 1, the stealth adventure will be released for various consoles and PCs. Various consoles" unfortunately do not include Switch, whose players will have to wait until later in 2022. Since the Gollum game was unveiled in 2019, the information has been scarce, but we got a first gameplay trailer last spring and a more cinematic variant last winter (which

May the 4th be with you! - Here are all the upcoming Star Wars games

Star Wars interest, like everything else, goes in cycles. We see periods of extreme drought, followed by bombardment, and in between perhaps some sort of semi-squal. Movies as well as TV series and games, all seem to live in some sort of constant treadmill. Right now, we're in a slump, at least game-wise. However, there are many projects that lie in the future - the "divorce" between EA and Lucasfilm (they are still buddies, as you will see below) has opened up for more studios that hopeful

Warcraft Arclight Rumble mobile game unveiled

The Warcraft mobile game that have been buzzing about for a while has been unveiled. Warcraft Arclight Rumble is the name, and it is a action strategy of the cuter kind. About 60 heroes are available to fight with and collect, both in single player and with and against friends in both co-op and pvp. The team can be put together and the look customized, and there are five groupings to choose from (alliance, horde, beast, blackrock, undead). The army is to be leveled up and new missions unloc

Disney has announced the "life simulator" Dreamlight Valley

Disney seems determined to hit the nostalgia nerve of every single person with the announcement of Dreamlight Valley. Classic character after classic character is glimpsed in the trailer for this "life simulator" and adventure game, which will be free-to-play and released for PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4/5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Game Pass and iOS. The plot revolves around a village that was once idyllic, but which, after an event called "the Forgetting", now lies deserted and ove

CoD: Warzone is released in mobile formats

Call of Duty Warzone is, as you know, pretty popular. But more want more and now it is clear that Warzone is on its way to mobile formats. The message does not come via a press release or the like, but a job advertisement is clearly telling us about the plans, as Activision will create a ...    The job advertisement is very broad as they are looking for people in several departments, in everything from game design to marketing. They do not go into much detail, so we do not have any k

Ubisoft is looking for Skull and Bones testers - Game not dead

The back and forth project Skull and Bones has been running here and there for several years, and is said to have cost Ubisoft over one billion dollars. But even though it has been described as "too big to fail", some have probably doubted that the finished game will ever be launched. A light in the tunnel, however, is the fact that Ubisoft is now looking for testers for it. The so-called Insider program has now started, and you can register here. This is not a widespread beta or alpha test

Mysterious, inaccessible arena in Elden Ring, PvP DLC?

It's of course about exploring, Elden Ring. To experience and discover at your own pace the myriad of strange places and creatures that populate the sad world. But of course it is also about finding out what comes next (and for some also about crossing boundaries that the developer set). Northeast of the game's launch area, for example, is a large building that no one has entered. It looks like a Roman arena, a colosseum, with a single miserable figure in front who only says the cryptic:

Release date for Gotham Knights

It was announced in 2020 and should actually have been released last year, but delays got in the way, as for many other titles during the pandemic. But now WB Games Montreal has confirmed that it will be released this year, specifically October 25. Close to Halloween, which may be appropriate. Because Batman has died in the game, which makes Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood and Robin step up to take care of the horrors of Gotham, and then maybe mainly mr. Freeze. The game will be able to r

Stalker 2 development halted due to Ukraine's war

Following last week's Russian invasion of Ukraine, Kyiv-based GSC Game World has halted the development of Stalker 2: Heart of Chernobyl. The company says in a video that it helps the employees and their families to survive, and that the game development must be set aside. The video begins with sequences from motion capture recordings to the game, but soon turns to showing clips from the war. It ends with the promise that work on the game will continue "after the victory". The film, which c

Watch the trailer for the Grim Dawn developers city builder game Farthest Frontier

The developer Crate Entertainment has so far only Grim Dawn on the merit list, even if it is not so "just". The game and its expansions have become very popular, but now it's soon time for Crate Entertainment to release its second game. It goes by the name Farthest Frontier, and is a city builder in medieval environments that was announced last year.

Say goodbye to the The Bethesda launcher

Anyone who hates having a lot of different launchers on their computer can rejoice at the news that it will soon be one less, at least if you play Bethesda's products. Through their website, they announce that it's time to say goodbye to Bethesda.net Launcher, but also assure that all games we own are safe. Starting in April, we will be able to migrate our games and any wallets to our Steam accounts. The save files for many games will also be transferred automatically, while others require

Halo's original composers sue Microsoft

Halo's original composers Marty O'Donnell and Mike Salvatori have sued Microsoft for 20 years of missing royalites. The case will be taken up next week and could potentially go to court if the parties do not agree. According to O'Donnell and Salvatori, they own the rights, while Microsoft says that they are only employees and thus that Microsoft is the owners of the rights. This is what O'Donnell says about the situation: According to O’Donnell, this also extends to the upcoming TV

Free to play Disney Speedstorm is taking on Mario Kart

Mario Kart turns 30 this year, and there is no indication that the genre dominant’s power is faltering – Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has sold 52 million copies! But soon another attempt is made to meet Nintendo’s dominance, and it is done by none other than Disney. Dinsey Speestorm is the name of an arcade racer that will attract people in two ways – partly it is free to play, partly the content is based on material from Disney and Pixar’s well-known worlds. Ironically, the game was introduced duri

Geoff Keighley: More big acquisitions in the gaming world underway

Check out the gameplay from the abandoned(?) Star Wars 1313

In 2020, we saw a picture of a Boba, a leaked screenshot that allegedly showed a Boba Fat-like character in the disused Star Wars 1313 game, which would take place in Coruscant's Underworld. Now, additional prototype material from the game has seen the light of day, and it looks more and more like it was a Boba character who took over the lead role since the acclaimed, first demo. In the gameplay prototype, we see the main character move through different (unfinished) environments, as well

Blizzard working on a brand new survival game

After last week’s news that Microsoft buys Activision Blizzard, there will now be more news about the Diablo and WoW developer: the studio will make a completely new survival game. A press release says that this is a survival game for PC and console. It’s located in a whole new game world, so it is not based on any of the company’s already well-used brands. It’s still early in the development and they reveal nothing about setting or anything else. In connection with the announcement, they a

Blizzard intends to regain confidence: "2021 was challenging"

Blizzard has slipped here and there in recent years, and not least the entire Activision Blizzard has had its eyes on it after reports of a deeply problematic workplace. Last week, however, it was all about how Microsoft intends to buy the questionable gaming giant for a breathtaking 68 billion dollars. Will it be a fresh start for Blizzard? Blizzard boss Mike Ybarra, who is the sole boss after Jen Oneal's resignation, writes that the company has taken steps to "rebuild trust". You loo

Sony expect Activision's games to continue to be multi-platform

Microsoft's acquisition of Activision Blizzard could have major consequences for Playstation: there is a risk that games and series such as Call of Duty, Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2 will not be released for Sony's console. It will probably take at least until the deal is approved and completed before that issue is on the agenda, but Sony has already made it clear that they expect Activision's games to continue to come to Playstation. They also expect the agreements to be fulfilled. A spokesman
