AMD's beastly third gen Ryzen Threadripper 3970X will cost $1,999

We've been hearing about the upcoming Ryzen 9 3950X for months now. Originally set to launch in October, that was pushed back to November 25, when it will join the ranks of the best CPUs for gaming (and other tasks). It's also the same week as Black Friday deals, though I seriously doubt we'll see any sales on the newcomer. In fact, if it follows in the footsteps of the 3900X, it will probably sell out during the initial availability phase.

The 3rd Night is a free adventure game that evokes classic survival horror

Like Resident Evil 7, free indie horror The 3rd Night manages to translate the feel of third-person survival horror to the first-person perspective.

But it's still an atmospheric, authentic adventure game that feels convincingly like something you might have played in the late '90s.

To mark this year's remembrance, BioWare has added new Mass Effect-themed cosmetics to its latest game, Anthem, including four Javelin skins, a new wrap, and a new emote.

Doom becomes a Borderlands 3 style loot shooter with this new mod

Back when Doom released in 1993, the carrot on the stick pulling us through the game was that it was fun (and a technical marvel). Nowadays a lot of us expect more: XP, an abundance of loot, Steam achievements. BorderDoom 1.0 is a new mod for Doom that basically turns it into a Borderlands 3 style loot shooter, and frankly, I need it in my life.

The next Hitman game is 'well under way'

Hitman 2 has been subject to countless updates since its release last November, but it looks like IO Interactive is moving most of its resources on to the next major installment in the series. In a new November roadmap published today, the company said that it's "looking increasingly to the future". Which means that "in real terms, we're moving more and more of the Hitman 2 team to join the next Hitman game, which is well underway."
