Tropico 6 is coming to the PC Gamer Weekender

We all dream of an island getaway, but some of us dream of that getaway being our very own banana republic. Fortunately the Tropico series has been around a while to sate our thirst for tropical dictatorships, and double-fortunately you’ll be able to listen to a talk about Tropico 6 during the PC Gamer Weekender.

DYO is a co-op platformer where you can hop between two halves of a split screen

A split screen usually puts a hard barrier between the player on the left and the player on the right, but not so in BYO. In this puzzle-platformer about two minotaurs escaping a labyrinth, you can cross over from one side to the other, essentially teleporting between different parts of the level. That means that you can boost your friend over jumps that are too tall, move objects between different areas and push platforms into place before hopping back to your own section of the screen.

Fe creator says publisher EA has not 'meddled' with game's vision, main story will last 7-8 hours

Pretty platformer Fe is out next month, and ahead of its release developer Zoink has been talking about what it's been like to work with EA—the game was the first to be picked up by the publisher's indie support arm, EA Originals. The gaming giant haven't interfered in Fe's development, according to game director Andreas Beijer, which is promising news for future EA Originals titles.

If you steal a ship in Star Citizen it will disappear when you log out of the game

Any ships that you steal in Star Citizen will disappear the moment you log out of the game, making it impossible to build your personal fleet through theft, Cloud Imperium Games has said. Stealing ships should be a "short-term goal" for "joyriding, piracy or selling them for scrap", not for growing your collection, system designer Will Maiden said on a forum post. But some players are miffed by the decision, which appears to limit the scope for being a space pirate.

Street Fighter's Ryu and Sakura will be coming to Monster Hunter: World

We'll have to wait until autumn for Monster Hunter: World on PC, but when we finally get it we're likely to be able to skin our characters as Street Fighter favourites Ryu and Sakura. Capcom likes these crossovers a lot—it's already said that Mega Man is coming to the game as a Palico (essentially a companion to help you during quests), and the developer has mixed the two franchises together in the past, so this is no real surprise.

They Are Billions adds weekly community challenges with leaderboards

Zombie plague RTS They are Billions has added community challenges in its latest update, meaning that everyone can play through the same survival map and compete for a high score on the new leaderboards. A new challenge will arrive every Monday, starting tomorrow, and players will only get one shot at each map, which is the right way to implement challenges like this, in my opinion.
