I know some of you folks can’t get enough of wiping fog off your gas mask so here’s some good news - 4A Games is working on an all-new title in the Metro series.
If you’re the sort of person who wants to march with flaming pitchforks towards Epic Games’ HQ, Borderlands 3 has added yet another to its growing list of reasons to give it a swerve. Borderlands 3’s Epic Games Store page has been updated with a tiny new tidbit of information - “Incorporates 3rd-party DRM: Denuvo Anti-Tamper”. 
It’s not the sort of thing to grab big headlines but AMD has quietly launched its AMD Radeon 600 Series graphics card. We’re all preoccupied with the Radeon RX 5700 family, of course, yet AMD can’t go forgetting about the lower end of the GPU market.
Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey is the brainchild of Patrice Désilets, creative director of the original Assassin's Creed and its beloved sequel. There's definitely some AC DNA in Ancestors' free-climbing antics, although the game itself is a very different proposition. An ambitious concept, Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey charts millions of years of evolution, from primitive apes through to what we know as the modern man.

And the countdown is up - Need For Speed Heat has officially been revealed, and we've got the first trailer. All those leaks and rumours have turned out to be spot on. 
Stop it THQ Nordic, there’ll be no studios left which you don’t own soon. They’ve only gone and snapped up yet another development studio. This time THQ Nordic has got the chequebook out for Gunfire Games, an American video game development studio formed in 2014 which has risen to prominence with last year’s Darksiders 3.
THQ Nordic has published its latest financial report for investors, and there are two or three very interesting tidbits tucked within it. First and foremost, Volition is developing a brand new Saints Row game. It’s not a spin-off like Agents of Mayhem either, so we’re very much expecting this new title to be Saints Row 5. 
Announced way back at E3 2017 alongside the Xbox One X full reveal, Minecraft’s Super Duper Graphics Pack has been cancelled. Developer Mojang has explained the major graphical upgrade for Minecraft has proven far too technically demanding and has now been permanently shelved.
The unthinkable is happening. Xbox head honcho Phil Spencer has explained how the focus for its next-generation Xbox Scarlett console will be in pushing higher frame rates rather than graphical fidelity.
There have been some curious goings-on over on AMD’s official landing pages for its Ryzen 3000 series, all of which appears to stem from users being unable to hit the advertised boost clock speeds with their new Ryzen 3000 processors.
Creative Assembly has not only announced a new Total War Saga game but it’s also released it today. Before you go and get your hopes up though, Total War Saga: Fall of the Samurai is far from a brand new game. In fact, it’s probably a game many of you own already.
