Shooter World War 3 to revamp and relaunch with a new publisher

Modern military shooter World War 3 will be revamping and expanding with backing from a new publisher, says development studio The Farm 51. The Farm 51 will partner with global publisher MY.GAMES, known for the shooter Warface, on World War 3, though The Farm 51 has emphasized many times since announcing the partnership that they will retain creative control over what goes into the game. MY.GAMES will assist with publishing, marketing, community management, customer support, and backend infrastructure for World War 3.

Spiff up your Galactic Empire in Star Wars Battlefront 2 with this mod

Ever feel like your Stormtroopers are a bit bland? Like they lack the verve and identifying markers that a professional fighting force should have? Modder Norm feels the same way, and has cranked out a visual overhaul for Star Wars: Battlefront 2's imperial faction called The Galactic Empire - Reimagined. The mod changes near every model on the imperial faction, giving each of their classes a more distinct visual design.

Megaquarium goes freshwater in a crocodile-filled expansion

Aquarium management sim Megaquarium has a lovely new expansion focusing on freshwater critters. To my delight, this includes crocodiles. I like them because they are dinosaurs. However you are not here to hear about how much I like these majestic, living examples of Earth's past. (It's a lot.)

Dead Island 2 has had one messy development saga. It began with Techland, developers of the first Dead Island, who left to make Dying Light instead. Publishers Deep Silver then passed it over to Yager, developers of Spec Ops: The Line, who worked on Dead Island 2 long enough to get a demo together for EGX, but then split with Deep Silver because their "respective visions of the project fell out of alignment", according to Yager CEO Timo Ullman.

The Rock of Ages 3 open beta starts on June 9th

Fun series about rolling a heavy object to crush things Rock of Ages is getting a new sequel soon, and that's exciting, and also it's going to have an open beta, which is more exciting. The open beta for Rock of Ages 3: Make & Break will start on June 9th, and you can sign up for it at publisher Modus Games' website. Rock of Ages first came out in 2011, back when there were like five or six new games on Steam a week max. It was followed by eye-wateringly-bad pun title Rock of Ages 2: Bigger & Boulder in 2017. I'm honestly a bit disappointed that ACE Team didn't think of a better joke for the third game's title.

The Xbox (Beta) app has started to roll out mod support

As the popularity of the Xbox Game Pass on PC has grown, the shortcomings of the Xbox (Beta) launcher have become clear. While the app itself is generally quite functional, some key features of PC gaming are lacking: Like mods. Games that would be easily modded on platforms like Steam or GOG aren't immediately supported on Microsoft's app. It looks like that won't be true for long.
