Over at Amazon, they’re busy using all of that tax avoidance cash to develop their own in-house games, including the ambitious-sounding New World, an MMORPG set in a supernatural 17th-century world. Developed on Amazon’s Lumberyard game engine, which is itself forked from CryEngine, New World is already quite the looker in new gameplay footage, even at this early stage.
Amazon has revealed some of the first in-engine screenshots from New World, its hugely ambitious upcoming sandbox MMORPG. New World is going to be powered by Amazon’s own Lumberyard Engine, a spin-off from CryEngine that should help lend the MMO some graphical oomph.
Creative Assembly and Sega are now the owners of a rather dubious world record - Total War: Warhammer 2 fastest cracked Denuvo title ever. The ambitious strategy sequel set in Games Workshop’s Warhammer Fantasy universe launched yesterday on PC, and yet within 24 hours it’s already been busted open by crackers.
Another day, another Total War: Warhammer 2 trailer, or at least that’s how it feels. Still, we’re chugging towards its September 28th launch at a rate of knots now, so who are we to begrudge Creative Assembly some fun. This time around we’re taking a look at the New World of Total War: Warhammer II, a new continent which stretches from the jungle city of Hexoatl to the Elven haven of Lothern.
Kingpin’s legendary overclocking skills regularly border on the ridiculous, but his efforts with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition graphics card are just totally obscene. He’s managed to break the previous world record speed of 2.5 GHz (his own record), ramping a GTX 1080 Ti all the way up to a frighteningly fast 3 GHz. That’s more than double the standard base clock speed of 1480 MHz.
After years of rumours, Amazon Game Studios has at last come and announced its first forays into the weird and wonderful world of PC gaming. Announced during TwitchCon 2016 (Twitch was bought by Amazon for the cool sum of $970 million back in 2014), the trio of titles cover a wide range of genres but have one thing in common - they’re all perfect streaming fodder.
A brand new batch of screens have been released for World of Speed, flaunting the London track in all its glory. For those hoping for the spiritual return of Metropolis Street Racer, this is as close as you’re going to get.
Think James Cameron's Avatar and you will get a pretty good idea about the setting when it comes to Headup Game's new title, Meridian: New World.
The final DLC for Civilization V has been released, with the last overhaul of the games mechanics and the last few Civ's being added; some of which change your style of play massively.
