Journey To The Savage Planet From Far Cry 4 Director Revealed

Publisher 505 Games and Typhoon Studios have just revealed the developer's first game, Journey to the Savage Planet. The color new title is the first game from Alex Hutchison, director of games like Far Cry 4 and Assassin's Creed III, and is being described as a passion project for the entire team.

Players take the role of an employee of Kindred Aerospace, a mediocre interstellar exploration company, that gets dropped onto an uncharted planet tucked away in the far reaches of the universe. With no real preparation or equipment to speak of, the player determines whether the planet is fit for human life by figuring out what's already there in terms of flora and fauna.

“The core tenets of Typhoon are strong flavors, lots of intertwined systems, a penchant for bad jokes and a deep and abiding love of collaborative play,” says Hutchinson. “Journey to the Savage Planet will encompass all of those things and more.”

Sayonara Wild Hearts Is A Stylish 'Pop Album Video Game'

Year Walk, Device 6, and Bumpy Road developer Simogo has announced their next project, which is headed to Switch next year.

Published by Annapurna Interactive, Sayonara Wild Hearts bills itself as a "Pop Album Video Game," and its first trailer is definitely living up to that moniker. It shows off a number of bands, such as the "Howling Moons" and the "Little Death," who also double as biker gangs battling it out on the road.

Near the end of the trailer we're introduced to "The Fool" through an arcana card (which definitely gives off some Persona vibes), and it's likely this is who you're playing. It's unclear whether the pop band biker gangs will all be enemies, or if you'll be able to join up with one or more of them.

Both Capcom and The Game Awards account had confirmed that new gameplay content for Devil May Cry 5 would appear at the show. Thanks to an accidental leak from the Xbox Portugal Facebook, the trailer released early, containing new information about the game.

Obsidian's New RPG The Outer Worlds Channels Fallout And Mass Effect

The studio behind Fallout: New Vegas, South Park: The Stick of Truth, and the Pillars of Eternity franchise just announced it is working with Take-Two Interactive's publishing label Private Division to develop an original sci-fi RPG called The Outer Worlds.

The Outer Worlds looks to be a mix of Fallout and Mass Effect as players lead a motley crew through an entire solar system and investigate a corporate conspiracy that threatens to destroy one of the Earth’s outer colonies.

Tim Cain and Leonard Boyarsky – two of the creators of the original Fallout series – are behind the project, and they look to bring their goofy-yet-dark sense of humor to this alternate, Victorian sci-fi future.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Now Free-To-Play, New Battle Royale Mode Introduced

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Now Free-To-Play, New Battle Royale Mode Introduced

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive commands one of the strongest and most dedicated fanbases in the realm of multiplayer shooters. The simple back-and-forth matches between terrorists and counter-terrorists are basically enshrined in the PC gaming culture as one of the most fundamental shooters available. Today, Valve announced that Counter-Strike GO will not only be getting a smaller-scale battle royale mode called Danger Zone, but it will also be going totally free-to-play.

The new mode puts eighteen players together in a larger-than-usual map titled Blacksite and, as battle royale games do, prompts the player to choose where they want to land. From there it seems to be the standard battle royale fair, but with the ability to track opponents on an in-game tablet using gathered intel and summon drones to you for supply drops. Players can do solo, doubles, or triples, with solos queuing into 16-player matches and groups raising the limit to 18.

Danger Zone, much like the rest of the game, will be completely free. Players who have already bought CSGO will be upgraded to Prime status, which lets you matchmake with other Prime users who have been verified by Valve as most likely not cheaters. It also nets you a Danger Zone souvenir MP5-SD. Players who are new to CSGO and want to join Prime will have to pay a $14.99 buy-in or earn a service medal through play.
