Goat Simulator Gets DayZ-Inspired Expansion

Coffee Stain Studios' bizarre, buggy goat ride is getting infected by the horde this week. A new add-on gives players a new map to explore, a crafting system, and more goats to unlock. GoatZ also includes a new survival mode where players have to eat every five minutes in order to survive.

Goat Simulator recently landed on Xbox systems. Game Informer's Tim Turi found Goat Simulator to be goofy but lacking in zombies. That will all change when the new GoatZ add-on launches for PC, Mac, and Linux this Thursday, May 7 for only $4.99. Separate apps are also headed to iOS and Android.

Black Mesa, An Community-Created Modernized Half-Life, Goes From Free To Early Access

Crowbar Collective, a third-party team of developers, is in the final stages of launching its long in-development update to Half-Life on Steam. Black Mesa was built on Valve’s Source engine and originally released for free in 2012. Now it’s on Early Access.

According to the Steam store page, 85 percent of the single-player campaign is complete, but Crowbar is hesitant to put a timeframe on the remainder of the work. Included in the Early Access version are deathmatch and team deathmatch multiplayer across six maps. 

The final version will include more multiplayer maps and modes, the rest of the single-player campaign, and more polish. Early Access is priced at $19.99. Retail, when available, will carry a price tag of $24.99.

Indiana Jones Movie Confirmed, But Not As Close As You Hoped

Indiana Jones Movie Confirmed, But Not As Close As You Hoped

For months, rumors have been circulating that Chris Pratt will star in a new Indiana Jones film. Disney and Lucasfilm finally confirmed that the studio still plans on making a new fedora-wearing globetrotting adventure. Unfortunately, a script hasn't even been written yet.

In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy confirmed that they intend to make a new Indiana Jones film saying, a new Indy film "Will one day be made inside this company. When it will happen, I’m not quite sure. We haven’t started working on a script yet, but we are talking about it." Sounds good, but there was no word on whether or not there was any legitimacy to the Chris Pratt rumors.

In addition to Star Wars and Indiana Jones, when Disney bought Lucasfilm it also got rights to properties like Willow and Radioland Murders. We wouldn't mind seeing a Willow revival someday, too.

GOG’s Steam Competitor, GOG Galaxy, Now In Open Beta

A year ago before E3, GOG announced a new DRM-free platform to compete with Steam. Today, GOG Galaxy goes into open beta.

The software offers a library system that allows users to enable auto-updates, chat support, and cross-play with other platforms (like Steam). All of this is optional and can be disabled by the user. Matchmaking is also included for some titles.

One of the notable features allows users to rollback versions in the event that new patches have adverse impact on the experience. GOG’s first major release on Galaxy will be The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in just two weeks. The company says that Galaxy will lay the groundwork for additional AAA releases in the future.

Castlevania's Igarashi Has An Important Question For You

The whip is closely associated with Castlevania, but the sword is no slouch, either. Koji "Iga" Igarashi, who worked on some of the series' best works, is heading up his own company, and he wants your input.

A new site from Igarashi asks the simple question: Sword or whip? Vote by clicking the icons, after which Iga will tell you which weapon is currently leading the vote. You can vote multiple times after a short wait.

Last year, Igarashi left Konami and immediately stated that he intended to start up his own company.

Report: Lego Dimensions Scooby Doo And Portal Sets Outed By Retailer Listing

Over the weekend, unannounced sets for Warner Bros.’ upcoming Lego Dimensions toys-to-life game appeared on Walmart’s website. While the listings have since been removed, we can confirm that they did exist.

The information was first identified by Brick Inquirer, which found listings for The Simpsons (teased in the Lego Dimensions reveal video), Jurassic World, Chima sets, and more. A Google search reveals cached pages for the products.

No pictures are available of the sets at this time, and the prices may be placeholders. While it seems likely that these listings are legitimate, we’ve reached out to Warner Bros. for comment. We’ll update should we receive a response.
