Get A Look At This RPG's Character Creator

Since we first saw it at Gamescom, the quirky action-RPG Biomutant has quickly become one of the most anticipated games of this year for us. Yesterday, PC Gamer talked with the developer Experiment 101 on a livestream that showcased the character creator in action.

You can watch the livestream segment below if you want to see it in action. The character creator lets you choose mutants for your rodent hero as well as their fur type and color. It's weirdly enthralling to watch the fur shift as the player scrolls through options:

Shaq Gets A Second Chance At Brawling This Spring

When Shaq Fu launched on Genesis and SNES in 1994, it was not the most well-received brawler of all time, to say the least. In fact, many consider it to be one of the worst games of all time – the recent trailer released by the development team acknowledges as much.

Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn stars the now-retired NBA legend as he "fights his way through the hordes of hell and Hollywood." Players face off against celebrity bosses using weapons like katanas, shurikens, and baseball bats, as well as Shaq's alter egos Big Daddy O and Big Diesel.

Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn hits PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC this spring. Anybody who purchased a copy of NBA Playgrounds for Switch prior to June 10, 2017 will receive a free copy of Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn when it releases.

A New Tactical Take For The Franchise

Developer Sushee has announced that Fear Effect Sedna – an isometric action/strategy take on the PlayStation franchise – is coming on March 6 (PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC), with the game's first trailer showing off Sedna's gameplay renaissance for the series.

Sedna brings together Hana, Rain, Glas, Deke, and new character Axel, and the coordination of this crew is the core of the title's gameplay. Players can pause the game in order to make sure everyone is in place to ensure maximum teamwork. "It's an approach that taps into the core structure of the original games," says Benjamin Anseaume, Sushee founder, "but with the technology available to us today, feels very 2018."

The game – which is co-written by original series' writer John Platten – centers around the team investigating Inuit mythology, and includes puzzle sequences as well as death cutscenes like the original games.

In this trailer, Ryoji shows off his dance moves and a host of skins, including a dance outfit, his track outfit, and what appears to be some kind of butler costume. Ryoji is then joined by Yosuke and the two pair off for a dual dance, which Atlus is emphasizing in the new game over anything similar to Persona 4 Dancing All Night's story mode.

When Ryoji isn't busy announcing he's a Phantom Thief to anyone who might be listening, he was clearly practicing his dancing skills. Check out the trailer below.

Former S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Devs Reveal New Battle-Royale Shooter

Considering the wild success that PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has had, it's only natural that other developers would explore the growing battle-royale shooter. The newly announced Fear the Wolves embraces the main element of the genre – 100-player scrambles to be the last player remaining – while bringing a pedigree and some twists that make it stand out.

The game is being developed by Vostok Games, which was founded by former members of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. team. Like that series, the irradiated ruins of Chernobyl features prominently in Fear the Wolves. Players have to contend with environmental hazards such as radiation and dynamic weather conditions, in addition to their fellow players and threats from the area's mutated creatures.

Fear the Wolves is coming to PC and consoles later this year.
