New Cyperpunk 2077 Details Teased For Gamescom

Cyberpunk 2077 was the talk of E3 2018, and it's updating for a new showing at the Gamescom conference.

A tweet by the game's official account says as much, and while we don't know exactly what developer CD Projekt Red is showing, perhaps it'll be at the Microsoft press conference (which we'll cover tomorrow), just like it was at E3.

New system update available: gamescom version 2.18

Dying Light: Bad Blood Enters Early Access Next Month

Dying Light: Bad Blood Enters Early Access Next Month

Dying Light: Bad Blood is Techland's approach to blending PvP, PvE, and battle royale elements, creating a unique scramble for resources in an attempt to be the last player standing. I enjoyed the standalone competitive multiplayer title when I played it earlier this year, and now everyone else will have a chance to get their hands on it as it launches on Steam Early Access in September.

The premise of Dying Light: Bad Blood pits 12 players in a large, open map full of zombies. Players must scramble to collect enough blood packets from zombie nests or other players to purchase a ticket on a helicopter. Since there's only room for one in the chopper, the escape zone often becomes a free-for-all brawl in the final moments as players struggle to be the last one standing.

While it's in Early Access, the eventual-free-to-play Dying Light: Bad Blood will be playable to anyone who purchases the Founder's Pack for $19.99. The pack includes in-game currency and exclusive items. One of those exclusive items is the Founder's Pass, which gives you three legendary skins over the course of the three months following Bad Blood's entrance into Early Access. During the course of its stint in Early Access, Dying Light: Bad Blood will add free updates including new maps, modes, and in-game items.

Candy Crush Creators Release "Midcore" RPG Legend Of Solgard

Candy Crush Creators Release

In many players' eyes, Candy Crush is a bit of a laughing stock. It's the harbinger of everything long-time gamers dislike about free-to-play mobile games and it has become so ubiquitous that when a portion of the awful 2017 animated film, The Emoji Movie, needed a scene that took place in a phone game, it used Candy Crush because what other phone game would be recognized by every person in the theater?

It's easy to dismiss the game for these reasons, but it's also easy to forget why the game became so popular to begin with: it's really good. It's simple while maintaining a healthy challenge, there are an absurd number of levels to complete, the monetization is generally not too bad, and it's pleasant on the eyes and ears. For those reasons, learning that the developer released a new game it is defining as a "midcore" RPG last week makes it worth taking a look at.

Legend of Solgard is a match-three RPG with some unique features that uses facets of Norse mythology and the threat of Ragnarok as its loose plot (Norse mythology is so hot right now). It's free-to-play and is similar to Candy Crush in the way you move through its levels, but has unique mechanics in its match-three gameplay. It actually plays a little bit like a single-player Clash Royale, for better and worse.

Pre-Order An Awesome (And Expensive) Psycho Mantis Statue

Pre-Order An Awesome (And Expensive) Psycho Mantis Statue

"You like Castlevania, don't you?" Well, then you're in the wrong place. But if you like Metal Gear Solid and its creepiest villain, then you should check out First 4 Figures' new Psycho Mantis statue.

The normal figure looks great, but it also has a separate optic camouflage edition. Each one will set you back about $525, but as you can see from the video below, that money gets you a pretty sweet-looking representation of Psycho Mantis.

Pre-orders are open now through September 18, so that gives you some time to save up.
