Call of Duty: Warzone's most annoying guns are finally getting nerfed

Enjoy those overpowered DMR 14 loadouts while you can, because Call of Duty: Warzone's latest dominant gun is officially getting a nerf. Raven Software announced today over Twitter that Warzone's next major patch will target the rifle as well as a few other guns causing headaches across Verdansk—namely the MAC-10 SMG and commonly duel-wielded Diamatti pistols.

Hitman 3's 'persistent shortcuts' will encourage exploration by making it easier to get around

Your basic, bottom-line goal in the Hitman games is to kill people, but true mastery of the craft requires something more. It's all about panache: Yeah, your target is dead, but could he be dead in some cooler, more memorable way? As reported by Game Informer, the upcoming Hitman 3 will make it easier to indulge your taste for stylish assassination with a new system of "persistent shortcuts" that developer IO Interactive said is intended to "encourage exploration, reward curiosity, and incentivize replayability."

Everspace 2 comes to Steam and GOG on January 18

2020 was a rough ride for the open-world space shooter Everspace 2. A Kickstarter campaign in late 2019 was very successful, pulling in nearly $620,000, but a planned Early Access release was postponed twice: Once because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and then by Cyberpunk 2077's move from November into December, which developer Rockfish Games (along with a few others) had no interest in messing with.

Call of Duty: Warzone has eaten Modern Warfare

Hey, where did Call of Duty: Modern Warfare go? You know, the one with Captain Price and Gunfight and all that? That was a great game—one of the best CoDs ever, even—but after December’s Call of Duty: Black Ops - Cold War Season 1 update that merged the game with Warzone it disappeared from Battle.net.

The Sinking City returns to Steam, but the legal battle isn't over yet

The Sinking City is Sherlock Holmes by way of HP Lovecraft: A 1920s detective game set in a flooded, dilapidated fishing town built atop caverns filled with otherworldly horrors and madness. It wasn't great—"an occasionally entertaining detective game blighted by poor writing, rote combat, and a dreary open world" is how we summarized it in our 2019 review—but it resurfaced a year later in an unexpected way when it very suddenly disappeared from digital storefronts.

Minecraft Earth is closing in June

Minecraft Earth is an AR spinoff that, rather like Pokémon Go, brings the beasts and blocks of Minecraft into the real world by way of your mobile device. It was announced in May 2019 and a month later made an impressive appearance at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference, which showcased its scalability and co-op gameplay elements. Although, as Fraser said at the time, the presentation had the benefit of taking place on "a massive, empty stage in a dark room," rather than in the real world.

This Warzone player somehow brought a full loadout into the Gulag

One of Call of Duty: Warzone's neatest additions to the battle royale was the Gulag, where eliminated players get one chance to re-deploy: by winning a 1vs1 against another eliminated player. The face-off comes with a limited set of weapons, and it's fantastic: your heart's pumping, the intimate environment and basic tools are a complete contrast to 'normal' Warzone, and it's always over, for good or bad, before you know it.
