While Dark and Darker is caught in a legal battle, a player is bringing the game to Fortnite

Thanks to the new Unreal Engine creative tools, people are bringing back Darker and Darker however they can. While Dark and Darker is still in legal limbo, a sole creator is working on bringing the popular fantasy RPG to a new platform: Fortnite. This sole developer comes from Fern, a UK-based software engineer who posted a video of their work-in-process project to the Fortnite Creative Reddit. Caught up in the recent tech industry layoffs, they decided to “chill for a bit” and work on personal projects. Thus, the Dark and Darker map. Check out the alpha trailer for Dark and…

Respawn to keep Apex Legends running for another “10 to 15 years” as it opens third studio

“We are always working to bring in more talent, more experience, more ideas, more capabilities…” Respawn Entertainment has announced the opening of its third studio, with the intentions of keeping battle-royale shooter, Apex Legends, running for another “10 to 15 years.” The developer, owned by EA, was initially founded by former Call of Duty developers in 2010, rising to fame with the release of Titanfall in 2014. Now, in 2023, Respawn is working on the upcoming Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, while continually working on its free-to-play title, Apex Legends. Why is gaming dying? The Thursday Nite Rant.

Get your Wo Long fix in Naraka and your Naraka fix in Wo Long.

Players have already had a few days to dive into the challenging world of Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty, the latest title from Nioh developer Team Ninja. But if you’re one such player who just can’t get enough, you might want to head over to Naraka: Bladepoint.

Apex Legends: The Board Game brings the battle royale to your tabletop

The board game is set to launch on Kickstarter in May. If you just can’t get enough Apex Legends, there’s some good news, as there’s an official board game in the works. Quite simply titled Apex Legends: The Board Game, this particular tabletop adaptation is a competitive tactics game designed for 2-4 players, though you will be able to play with more people thanks to some planned expansions (thanks, GameSpot). It’s actually planned to have a Kickstarter campaign, which launches May 17, but with a game as popular as Apex, it’s pretty likely to be successfully funded. In the game,…

Apex Legends is finally giving everyone what they want: a Team Deathmatch mode

Though don’t expect a new character this season. Apex Legends Season 16 is on the way, bringing along with it a highly requested game mode, but no new character. For a long while now, fans have been asking for a Team Deathmatch mode, and if you’re one such fan you’ll be happy to hear that Apex Legends 16th season will be adding just that. It’s quite the romantic affair, as the new mode will be dropping on February 14 (the perfect time to play some Apex with your special someone), alongside Revelry, the name of this newest season. “We’ve been…

Battle royale brawler Rumbleverse is shutting down later this month

Epic Games and Iron Galaxy have announced they’re sunsetting their melee battle royale Rumbleverse, six months after launch. Live services will go offline on February 28th at 4PM GMT/10AM CST/11AM ET. In a blog post from the team, Iron Galaxy shared that Season Two will be Rumbleverse’s last, but it should be receiving one final update soon to remove the game’s monetisation. This continues the trend of me discovering a new battle royale game, thanks to the announcement of its death. Read more

Naughty Dog co-president says the studio is “moving on” from Uncharted

Was A Thief’s End a farewell for the series, or just Drake? Looks like Naughty Dog might be finished with the Uncharted series. Speaking with Buzzfeed, studio co-president Neil Druckmann said the team is “moving on” from it. “Uncharted was insanely successful,” said Druckmann. “Uncharted 4 was one of our best-selling games, and we’re able to put our final brushstroke on that story and say that we’re done. We’re moving on.” Does this mean the studio is finished with the series for good, or just Nathan Drake’s story? Only Naughty Dog knows for sure. But, that’s not to say another…

Deku Smash removed from Fortnite due to in-game “issues”

If you click on a link and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. Read our editorial policy. Players will have to settle without the powerful Chapter 4 feature for the foreseeable future. The Deku Smash has suddenly been removed from Fortnite due to “an issue”, according to official Fortnite social media channels. This came only a few days following epilepsy concerns were raised against the attack, as well as swirling frustrations around its ability to one-shot enemy players. Both are potential reasons to remove the weapon from the game, although the former is certainly the most troubling….

Modern Warfare 2 suplexes Christmas with festive multiplayer makeover

Shipmas arrives in Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 tomorrow, with the game’s Christmas update for multiplayer. The reimagined version of the classic Shipment map – introduced with last week’s Season 01 Reloaded midseason update – will be festooned with decorations, along with the bodies of your enemies. COD now has its own Santa, too, and I wouldn’t want to tangle with him. You can see what I mean, and catch a glimpse of the holiday version of Shipment, by watching the trailer below. Read more

Need for Speed finally figured out what it wants to be

It took an entire console generation, but there’s a Need for Speed game worth celebrating at last. I never imagined I would be writing this when everyone first got word of a new Need for Speed game in development. Initially revealed in the summer of 2020 with a shot of two cars, said game would not get an official title until October of this year. Months after leaks and rumours told us a lot of what EA wasn’t interested in sharing itself, and Need for Speed Unbound was revealed, with all excitement reserved for racing games that aren’t Forza. I…

PlayStation doesn’t think Battlefield can keep up with Call of Duty for much longer

The players, the media and even other developers have been down on EA and Battlefield lately – and now even Sony is taking shots at the FPS series. It’s been a messy old week for Sony and Microsoft. After the UK Government published Xbox and PlayStation’s full arguments over the Activision Blizzard acquisition case to a public domain, media types and players alike have been trawling the pages, sniffing out bytes of snark issued by both companies in an effort to make themselves look smaller than they actually are. The end game, of course, is for Sony to kick up…
