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.

Upcoming Brawler Has An Unforgiving Twist

Upcoming Brawler Has An Unforgiving Twist

Permadeath is often an integral part of roguelikes and modern indie games, mixing unforgiving gameplay with procedural level design. Developer Secret Base brings this widely used mechanic to its upcoming beat-em-up game, Streets of Red, in an especially unforgiving way.

When you die in Streets of Red, that's it. You don't have any second chances. Instead, you're forced to start all over from the beginning. Rather than grinding or leveling up, Streets of Red instead tests your skills and patience. This brawler brings the classic arcade experience home, without the ability to insert a quarter to continue. It may sound daunting, but it could also make a captivatingly tense game.

Streets of Red can be played through local co-op with friends, though it does not include online co-op. Watch the trailer below.

Keeping Your City Alive In A Harsh Winter

Keeping Your City Alive In A Harsh Winter

Frostpunk is a survival game that has tense decision-making and an oppressive tone, similar to the creators' previous game, This War of Mine. This time, however, these mechanics are applied to the city-building sim genre, where you build a society and attempt to keep your people alive through a harsh winter. 

Frostpunk's tough decisions bring about questions of morality. For example, would you let children work in the labor force if it increased your chances of survival? Will you treat the sick and wounded, despite having scarce resources? Would you allow robots to help ease the workload off of your human settlers, even if there's a chance they're not safe?

Developer 11 Bit Studios released a developer diary recently detailing automatons, which are steampunk-like robots that can help your settlement survive in many ways. They can work consistently without needing rest, and make life easier for your people. However, your society might have varying reactions to them, and concern could grow over whether they're safe to use or not. Watch the short video below to learn more.

Launch Trailer Says It Won't Suck As Much As The Last One

Launch Trailer Says It Won't Suck As Much As The Last One

Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn is riding off the back of a name most people would rather forget. The original Shaq-Fu is a notoriously terrible brawler starring Shaquille O'Neal. In its launch trailer, A Legend Reborn makes a bold claim: That it won't suck.

From the trailer (which goes out of its way to acknowledge that the original Shaq-Fu sucked), A Legend Reborn is certainly a step up, from a production standpoint. However, it's hard to see how the game is actually put together or how the game will feel when it finally releases. Despite calling itself a launch trailer, it doesn't mention the release date, with the description saying it's hitting sometime in 2018.

Ubisoft Montreal is getting weird with Far Cry 5's post-release support. A new trailer shows off the campaign's story, in which the player helps to lead a resistance against a cult leader and his brainwashed followers in Montana. The DLC is decidedly less serious, however.

Players who pick up the game's season pass will be able to download three separate adventures. They're as follows, with the text straight from Ubisoft.

The Gold Edition of the game includes Far Cry 5 and the season pass for $89.99. There's no word yet on the pricing of the individual DLC episodes.

Take Control Of The Genestealers In Turn-Based Battles

The Warhammer 40,000 universe continues to spread into the world of video games, with the announcement of a new Space Hulk title. Space Hulk: Tactics is a turn-based tactical game based on the board game, featuring a pair of campaigns and online multiplayer. 

Publisher Focus Home Interactive says the two campaigns show battle from two distinct points of view. In one, you command a squad of Blood Angels, directing their actions and upgrading them during the course of the story. In another, you take charge of a Genestealer swarm, clawing and rampaging your way through Space Marine forces. 

Online multiplayer modes let players choose Genestealers from one of four different Space Marine groups. Those include the Blood Angels, Space Wolves, Ultramarines, and Dark Angels. Players will be able to create their own maps (with customized objectives) and share them with the community.

Atlus has released a new trailer for Dragon's Crown Pro, the 4K rerelease of Vanillaware's sprite-based 2D brawler.

The new trailer is mostly just an excuse to gawk at Vanillaware's artwork, now coming to PlayStation 4. It retains all the features of the previous version, but cleans up the art and adds a new arranged soundtrack completely recorded by a live orchestra.

Check out the new trailer below.

A Pirate Game Worth Its Salt

A Pirate Game Worth Its Salt

Xbox One’s ambitious open-world pirate game, Sea of Thieves, recently wrapped up its closed beta. Game Informer interns Jon Bowman and Robbie Key got a chance to brave Sea of Thieves’ vast waters. They pore over details of their voyage such as how they fared in running a two-man boat, how terrible a drunk accordion player sounds, and whether or not Rare’s title is worth buying at launch.

Jon –  It probably goes without saying, but this game is a lot more fun playing with buddies rather than randoms. Even if we weren’t rewarded properly ...

Robbie – Absolutely. Our two-hour tour was enough to tell me this game is meant for goofing off with friends. Though, I will say playing with a random crew can be fun. Right before we joined up, I played and talked with a guy who was actually on PC, which was a pretty surreal cross-platform moment for me. The other two didn’t have mics, but we all worked well together in our voyage. That made things a thousand times better. It makes a world of difference when you have good teammates in any co-op-heavy game, and this is no exception.
