An In-Depth Look At The Upcoming Zelda-Inspired Action Adventure Game

In a recent dev diary from Runic Games, the team gives an inside look at Hob, and an overview of how upgrading and forging swords will work in the game.

Hob is an action adventure game with a beautiful art style, with gameplay reminiscent of the Legend of Zelda series. "When we first started working on Hob, we knew we wanted the world to be this really mysterious thing," says studio head Marsh Lefter in the video. "But we always have this story in the back on our mind. So whatever we do, we always try to integrate those two things into what you see in the game."

Latest Dev Diary Sheds Light On How The Game's Thrilling Encounters Are Built

Crytek's upcoming title Hunt: Showdown is a curious blend of survival horror, shooter, and plain-old survival game set in a gothic-horror version of the wild west. And, as we've written about before, it works. Today, we've got an exclusive first look at the studio's third developer diary, which sheds light on the game's development – in more ways than one.

The video below shows off an under-the-hood view of the game's development, with members of the team showing the tools they're using to create encounters that are different every time players jump in. You can also see a level set during the daytime, which is a departure from the night-in-the-woods sections that we've seen and played so far.

We Take The South Park Heroes Out Of The Shadows

We Take The South Park Heroes Out Of The Shadows

I cannot say I have ever really been a fan of South Park.

Well, that is not entirely true. I was a fan of South Park when it seemed like the entire world was a fan of South Park in the late 90s and early 2000s, then I simply fell off. Ultimately, this lead to me appreciating games like 2014’s South Park: The Stick of Truth from afar, only overhearing the praise the game got for its Paper Mario-style battle system and spot-on graphical style as an observer but not a participant.

I came to South Park: The Fractured But Whole with a level of cautious optimism, but I came away from my time with it appreciating it as something even I, as a lapsed fan, could see myself really engaging with based on its systems.

Take A Look At Billie's Arsenal

Dishonored: Death of the Outsider is a standalone expansion to Dishonored 2, which means it can make some big changes. Chief among them is the introduction of Billie Lurk as a playable character, which means players will have a whole new array of powers to play around with.

Below, you'll find a breakdown of the character's arsenal. New tricks include a new kind of teleport ability (in which Billie leaves a marker she can leave behind and teleport to), and a long-ranged slash that can dispatch foes from afar.
