PUBG testing custom matches, may lock them behind paywall

One of the modes PUBG fans have wanted most desperately in the game is the ability to create custom matches. It seems their wishes have finally come true, as PUBG Corp has today announced the mode is in open beta on test servers. But, of course, there’s a catch. Custom matchmaking will be available for free, but PUBG Corp mentioned in its update notes this could change in the future. “Creating custom matches won’t have an associated cost during this phase,” the developer stated. “However, due to the extremely large…

Hungry Shark World lands on consoles today

Christian Donlan Features Editor Hungry Shark World is a mobile game from Ubisoft in which you race around as a shark, eating things and unlocking new sharks. As of today, though, it’s also available on Switch, PS4 and Xbox One with fully optimised gamepad controls and upgraded visuals for 4K displays on PS4 Pro and Xbox One X. It’s charming and a bit throwaway, I think: you gad about taking on foes of different sizes and completing missions. On mobile it’s free to play and supported by in-app purchases of…

Nightdive reveals better-than-expected progress on its troubled System Shock remake

Developer Nightdive has offered backers of its beleaguered System Shock remake a fresh look at the progress being made toward the project’s big September milestone, dubbed the Adventure Alpha.

As part of its…

Rogue Trooper, which charts the adventures of a genetically engineered super-soldier, has inspired four video games over the last three decades – an isometric 8-bit shooter, a 16-bit platformer, and a 2006 action-adventure (plus its 2017 remaster).

Elon Musk’s Twitter tirade has me dreaming of a Mass Effect patch

For a while, Elon Musk was the chosen one. The nerdy billionaire not only talked the talk, but walked the walk. On Twitter, he’d reference video games, quantum mechanics and space travel – three things I absolutely adore – while splashing outrageous sums of cash trying to make my childhood dreams a reality. I thought he might, one day, actually crack it and send someone to Mars. How things can so quickly change. @IrrelevantGamer @masseffect Mass Effect 2 is one of the best games ever. Also love Saints Row IV.…

Over two years have passed since Fallout 4 was released, but for some the main game was simply not enough to satisfy their Fallout cravings, and many turned to modding to reinvent their favourite post-apocalyptic world. In the search for some Fallout 4 apr├Ęs-ski, one player has produced a mod known as Northern Springs DLC: a massive fan-made expansion which adds a new snowy area to the game. The free mod, created by ‘Jshrapnelc’ and available on NexusMods, claims to add a location bigger than even Bethesda’s official Far Harbor…
