Cut Deals and Double Cross Your Rivals as Sub Rosa Enters Early Access

Some games just take ages to develop and come to the market. However, thanks to Steam Early Access, there is now a balance that can be achieved with both development and allowing players to experience the game at an early stage. Sub Rosa, a multiplayer first-person shooter, has been around for a long time now, having been on Steam since 2017, but has always been hidden from the public eye. Four years on, developer Cryptic Sea is ready, as Sub Rosa is finally in Steam Early Access.

As part of the Future Games Show Spring Showcase, a new cinematic trailer for Sub Rosa reveals the announcement in some style. Publisher Devolver Digital has had a nice track record of bringing unexpected hits to players, and the hope is that this time around, it will be the same.

A first look at the game will instantly give you an experimental feel … Read the rest

Latest Hood: Outlaws & Legends Trailer Introduces the Mystic

Following the reveal of the Ranger, Hunter, and the Brawler, Focus Home Interactive and Sumo Digital are continuing the Hood: Outlaws and Legends promotional gauntlet with the latest trailer reveal spotlighting the Mystic.

Tooke, as he is called, is a former inquisitor whose “tenacious obedience to religious scripture was used and exploited by the state.” Suffice to say, he is none too happy, and revenge is on the cards.

If you are a fan of supporting your fellow teammates with versatile healing or crowd control abilities, then the Mystic should be right up your alley. The class is also a capable melee fighter, and judging from the flail, I do not doubt that.

The flail has a long reach, and can help teams control crowds effectively. The heavy attack allows Tooke to reach enemies at range and stun them, opening them up for more punishment.

The Mystic is able to … Read the rest

Nintendo and Niantic Announces New AR App Starring the Pikmin

If you loved Pokémon Go and thought to yourself that the same premise could be used for Nintendo titles, you are not alone apparently. In a new partnership between Niantic and Nintendo, the pair have announced a new augmented reality game coming later this year starring none other than the adorable Pikmin.

A global launch is slated for 2021. However, before you get too excited, the in-development app does not even have a name yet. What we do know is that it will combine the utility of augmented reality with the undeniable attraction of Pikmin.

It will include gameplay activities that will encourage users to walk and make walking more delightful.

The development of this Pikmin app is led by the Niantic Tokyo Studio, which will be the first title created by the studio since its inception in 2018.

In a statement, both Nintendo and Niantic expressed their … Read the rest

Microsoft Flight Simulator – Gorgeous Okavango Delta Trailer Shows Potential for Virtual Tourism

Today SimWorks Studios released a new trailer of its upcoming Microsoft Flight Simulator add-on, Okavango Delta.

This one is rather interesting and peculiar. Instead of simulating an airport or a city, it embellishes the massive Okavango Delta area in Botswana, Africa.

It offers 9,000 square kilometers of scenery, over 12,000 animals, nine custom airfields, six detailed camps, and plenty of helipads to help you explore the beautiful environment.

The release of the package is now slated for April 3.

Basically, it’s a beautiful tourist destination for virtual pilots to explore with light aircraft including SimWorks Studios’ own Zenith CH701 STOL.

It’s certainly a different and potentially more relaxing way to enjoy the simulator compared to flying in a semi-straight line from city A to city B.

Natural environments like Africa are quite suited for this kind of low and slow exploration since cities are usually better observed and enjoyed … Read the rest

Star Citizen developer Cloud Imperium Games had a relevant announcement to make today, alongside the reveal of a new video.

The video focuses on new weapons and tools that are being created for the growing space simulator, on top of a new look and pipeline for asteroids coming in the next alpha phase.

Dying Light 2 Developers Answer Fan Questions in New Video; Provide New Launch Window

Members of Techland, the developer working on Dying Light 2, have released a new video focused on answering the questions of their more eager fans.

Streamed through the official Dying Light YouTube channel on Mar. 17, the video sees a number of members from Dying Light 2’s development team answering questions. Each question is related to the nebulous status of the sequel’s release window, and the majority contain a heaping helping of foul language to go along with their impatient tone.

The developers read through each message with a tongue-in-cheek approach. Once each one has read a message, they’re then shown together and make a joint statement to their eager fandom: Dying Light 2 is still coming, and they’ll need to be patient for a bit longer before any big announcements.

However, they did have a very brief teaser of available footage that they showed off at the end of … Read the rest
