See Crytek's VR Game In Action As The Climb Launches Today On Rift

Crytek's virtual-reality climbing game The Climb is out today on Oculus Rift, and you can get a sense of what to expect from it via a launch trailer.

about X hours ago from

No Man's Sky doesn't have a story, but it does have lore, and the involvement of Watchmen artist, Dave Gibbons and author James Swallow who has written for Star Trek, Doctor Who, and many other science fiction properties.

In a new video from Sony and Hello Games, director Sean Murray details in vague terms how the game's lore will help build its universe. The video also speaks to Gibbons and Swallow who have been creating fiction for the game that will be included in comic book form with the game's special edition release. Both seem to have a genuine appreciation for the universe Hello Games has created.

Mirage: Arcane Warfare Adds Explosive Magic To Chivalry’s Brutal Sword Combat

Mirage: Arcane Warfare Adds Explosive Magic To Chivalry’s Brutal Sword Combat

If you happened to miss Torn Banner’s Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, it’s a multiplayer game that dumps the guns and ammo for swords and shields. The combat is brutal and bloody, and while you can't pull off a Call of Duty “no scope,” it does retain the adrenaline of team-based competitive multiplayer.

Mirage takes that same melee-heavy combat and layers in a magic system for six-versus-six matches. You still cutting off heads and limbs, but you also detonate fireballs and hurl huge mystical boulders at your foes.

There are six classes to choose from, each fitting familiar archetypes. Damage-soaking tanks, speedy glass cannons, and support characters bring a set of spells for controlling the battlefield or just ripping apart foes into battle.

Two Gameplay Videos Show A Farm Can Be Just As Scary As An Asylum

about X hours ago from

Outlast is moving to a new setting for the sequel after the original mostly took place in Mount Massive Asylum, and it looks just as unsettling.

The two videos below each show four minutes of gameplay that will be familiar to those who played the first game. Much of the action takes through the perspective of a camera with night-vision capabilities. The cornfield footage in particular (the first video below) is especially unsettling as the way the light breaks through the branches creates creepy shapes and masks difficult to identify foes.

Zombies Look Unhealthier Than Ever In New Screens

If you missed out on Techland’s open-world zombie slugfests when they first release, Deep Silver is making a return trip to these tropical islands with Dead Island Definitive Collection, which includes Dead Island, Dead: Island Riptide, and a new side-scrolling/endless runner called Dead Island Retro Revenge.

Dead Island was something of a breakout hit when it originally release in 2011. The stand-alone expansion Dead Island: Riptide wasn’t a giant leap forward, but it was still pretty fun. This new batch of screens for Dead Island Definitive Collection helps show off the visual improvements to the games now that they are on the new generation of hardware.

The collection will be available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on May 31, but pre-orders have already opened up for PS4 owners.

The $9.99 Hunter Pack gets you a preconfigured medium Dreadnought hero ship, the Morningstar, 500 Grey Box points used for cosmetic customization, and seven days of experiencing boosting Elite Status when the game launches.
