The Forest's free update adds hang gliders, crossbows and more monsters

I haven’t finished The Forest yet because, frankly, I’m too damn scared. I’m not particularly comfortable in regular forests at night, let alone ones containing mutated cannibals and labyrinthine cave networks full of mutilated corpses. And now, thanks to the 1.10 update, there are two new horrifying monsters presumably waiting to snack on me.

GTA Online's Arena War update brings stadium-based vehicle combat

I feared GTA Online would die a slow death with the arrival of Red Dead Redemption 2's multiplayer mode on consoles, but it doesn't look like that's going to be the case just yet.

For mobile games of the time, it looked pretty great. But that's all in the past now, because as of today they're no longer available to purchase on Apple's App Store, nor are any related in-app purchases.

Metro 2033 film has been cancelled because the scripter wanted to 'Americanize' it

Work on the Metro 2033 film that was announced in 2016 has been halted and the rights have reverted to Dmitry Glukhovsky, the author of the 2005 novel on which the movie was meant to be based. The reason, Glukhovsky told VG247, is that scriptwriter F. Scott Frazier had intended to "Americanize" the setting by moving it from Moscow to Washington DC, and it just wasn't working out.

World War Z is coming to the Epic Store

World War Z was announced near the end of 2017 as a four-player survival-shooter inspired by the "blockbuster film franchise" of the same name. It's being developed by Saber Interactive and was originally expected to be out this year, although the August gameplay trailer above updated that release target to 2019. And today, Saber dropped another little surprise:
