I say this because I got sent one today, and had a quick blast on the game this morning.

Having taken a year off, Assassin’s Creed Origins was supposed to be all about ringing the changes. Aside from the fantastic looking new environment, the gameplay demo shown during Ubisoft’s E3 press conference looked suspiciously familiar. Now Ubisoft is looking to get down to the nuts and bolts of what makes AC: Origins different to its predecessors, beginning with the total revamping of all its side content. [More]

In the years of its developing, Snail Games' Dark and Light has undergone some major changes. Originally penned as a classic MMORPG, it has morphed into a private server fantasy survival game with nearly limitless possibilities and the promise of regular, consistent content updates. As fans of Early Access survival games will tell you though, they tend to be fairly performance intensive. Here are the official Dark and Light PC system requirements so you can prepare for the upcoming EA launch. [More]

The Escape from Tarkov closed beta will be kicking off in July, developer Battlestate Games has announced. The simulation style MMOFPS is set in the fictional city of Tarkov, pitting three competing factions against one another in hyper-realistic combat. There’s an authentic ballistics model, no HUD, and players have to manually check a magazine to see how many bullets they’ve got left. It’s been on plenty of people’s radars for a while now, and next month you may have your first chance to play it. [More]

The biggest omission from Ubisoft’s E3 2017 press conference was undoubtedly the leather loving, goggle-wearing god of stealth - Sam Fisher. The presser came and went without a whisper of a new Splinter Cell, although perhaps it was some sort of Sam Fisher method acting, who knows with this lot. Anyway, now Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has teased exactly that, as well as the Guillemot family hoovering up additional Ubisoft shares in order to prevent a Vivendi takeover. [More]
