'Far Cry' is coming to America

Up until today, all of the Far Cry games have been set in far off locations. A tropical island, Africa, another tropical island, the Himalayas and prehistoric times have all played witness to the franchise's often morally ambiguous open-world first-person shooter. But now, the franchise is heading stateside. Series overlord Ubisoft has started teasing the next game in the franchise with a live-action trailer, as one does, and while there isn't a lick of CGI or gameplay, the 41-second clip does do a great job setting the game's tone.

New in our buyer's guide: The Galaxy S8 and Gear VR controller

Last month we updated our buyer's guide with a bunch of stuff and whaddya know: six days later we published our glowing review of both the Galaxy S8 and S8+. With scores of 91 and 92, respectively, both deserved a spot on our shortlist. And those aren't even the only Samsung products being inducted into our guide today: The Gear VR controller was also a no-brainer. Rounding out the list, we've added BlueAnt's Pump Zone wireless exercise headphones -- we've been testing them and feel they're worth their (sharply reduced) asking price. Find all that and more in our buyer's guide, and stay tuned for more additions next month.

Welcome to Tomorrow, the home of stuff that hasn’t happened yet

It was just about a month ago that Christopher Trout put up a post on Engadget introducing himself as our new editor-in-chief. Since then, we've been busy drilling down into the areas we cover best: consumer electronics ("gear"), gaming and entertainment, with the odd story on politics, culture or science, when it makes sense. Today, we're tying it all together with the launch of a new section on our site, about the future of, well, everything.

'Nex Machina' brings co-op robot slaughter to the couch June 20th

Developer Housemarque's ode to Robotron: 2048, Nex Machina, finally has a release date: June 20th on both PC and PlayStation 4. And if you were a fan of what you played in the beta but thought it was missing something, maybe that je ne sais quoi was couch-play with a buddy. "Local co-op will allow two players to play side by side, just like in the old school arcade halls, competing or helping each other out," the developer writes on the PlayStation Blog. It's something Housemarque has included in its previous games, sometimes as a post-launch add-on, but here it'll be a part of the experience on day one. Want a preview of how the voxel-based madness will play out next month? Peep the trailer below.
