Hunt: Showdown Is Having A Free Weekend On Steam

Hunt: Showdown, a horror-based multiplayer shooter from Crytek, is having a free weekend on Steam. You can gather together a hunting party and take part now.

The early access shooter blends PvE and PvP to develop campaigns based around player actions. You can check out our New Gameplay Today of the game in Feburary, though it has already seen some large content updates in the months since.

The structure of the game pits players either alone or with a partner against other hunters to find and defeat the Lovecraftian beasts that terrorize the countryside. The hunt is only the beginning, though, as winning teams soon find themselves with a target on their back, thus the Showdown part of the title.

Let It Die Coming To PC

Let It Die, Grasshopper Manufacture's rogue-lite action title, is coming to PC this Fall, GungHo has announced.

Originally a PlayStation 4 exclusive, Let It Die released as a free-to-play title in December 2016. The game had hack-and-slash gameplay, online elements, and an overall style that enraptured players when it released. The framing device of the game put players in an arcade playing the fictional console to access a virtual tower that may or may not be an apocalyptic warning in the real world. There's also a skateboarder named Uncle Death who runs your tutorials.

The online elements of the game recorded your status and inventory at death and sent that information to other people's games, who could then get attacked by your character in their games. GungHo did not mention crossplay between PlayStation 4 and PC.

Shovel Knight Continues Foray Into Every Video Game Franchise By Joining Rivals Of Aether

If you saw Shovel Knight as an assist trophy in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate this past week and were disappointed because you wanted to play as him instead, indie 2D Smash Bros.-like Rivals of Aether will make your every shovel-related dream come true. Shovel Knight is coming to the game as a character.

Shovel Knight has a lot of his items from the game, like the Dust Knuckle or Propeller Knuckle. You can check out a trailer of the blue knight in action below.

This makes the 14th playable appearance of Shovel Knight in another game (and the fourth fighting game of those appearances) of a total 21 appearances, playable or otherwise. Shovel Knight is the Stan Lee of indie video games.

Doom Eternal Is Also Launching On Switch

Doom Eternal Is Also Launching On Switch

Doom Eternal just got detailed with new footage and a presentation at Quakecon, finally fleshing out the anticipated sequel since its announcement at E3 in June. Despite the previous Doom game coming to Switch last year, not many people expected the sequel to launch on Switch, as well. Bethesda apparently delights in subverting those expectations.

We hope you're ready. #DOOM Eternal will launch on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. pic.twitter.com/J9DCga2YoW

The Doom Twitter announced after the presentation that Doom Eternal will launch on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch. Bethesda's wording of "will launch on...Switch" sure makes it sound like it's day and date as the other versions. If that's true, that makes the first simultaneous launch for a Bethesda title on a Nintendo system pretty much ever.

The Elder Scrolls: Legends Focuses On Sheogorath For Next Expansion

Announced today at QuakeCon 2018, The Elder Scrolls: Legends is getting a Sheogorath-centric expansion called the Isle of Madness. While little is known at this point, mechanics probably include something to do with insanity.

The whims of the Daedric Prince are often interesting and enjoyable when he makes appearances in the Elder Scrolls universe, and the elements of his realm infused into the digital card game should be interesting.
