'Stormdivers' is a battle royale game with superpowers

Back in April, Resogun and Super Stardust HD developer Housemarque teased a mysterious multiplayer project called Stormdivers. The reveal, though, showed little beyond a forest locale, some man-made structures and the promise of "hard flying and heavy hitting gameplay." If you've been waiting for more information, good news -- the indie developer has released a new trailer today showing off the game's battle royale-inspired combat. It reveals a host of weapons, including machetes, assault weapons and rocket launchers, as well as futuristic jetpacks, portable shields, and some fantastical powers including invisibility and lightning-fast dashes.

Logitech's wireless G Pro mouse is built for esports

Wireless gaming mice are anathema to esports pros for a reason -- when you're that skilled, even a modest amount of lag can throw you off. Logitech is betting that it can fulfill their dreams, though. It's launching a wireless version of its G Pro mouse that was designed for (and with the help of) competitive gamers. It draws on both Logitech's increasingly familiar Lightspeed tech for near-zero lag and supports PowerPlay wireless charging, but it also touts the company's high-precision 16,000DPI sensor and a 2.8oz weight that makes it easier to flick around in the heat of a tournament.

Steam TV goes live again to stream 'Dota 2' tournament

Steam TV is online again after Valve briefly pushed it live last week. The platform is currently streaming a live broadcast of The International 2018, Valve's Dota 2 esports tournament. While the website still doesn't have a lot of features to offer, you'll be able to see the chat room even if you don't log into your Steam account. You'll have to use your log-in credentials if you want to participate in the chat or to watch the game with friends, but if you're fine watching alone and keeping your thoughts to yourself, all you need to do is go to the website. Take note that the video refused to load for us on Chrome or Safari and only worked on Firefox.

'Transference' demo gives a taste of Elijah Wood's PSVR thriller

The Elijah Wood-backed mind-bender Transference is due to arrive September 18th, but you don't have to wait until then (or spend hard-earned cash) to see if it lives up early buzz. Ubisoft and SpectreVision have released a prequel demo, The Walter Test Case, for both PlayStation VR and regular PS4 users. The title has you living through the 1993 experiment that sets up the main game, making you experience the "digitally recreated" memories of a PTSD patient while tackling puzzles in a mysterious apartment. Suffice it to say this won't be a walk in the park.
