It’s probably not fair to either game to invoke No Man’s Sky when talking about upcoming sci-fi survival offering The Solus Project [official site], but both the reddish-pink colour palette and the heavy use of tricorders (let’s not kid ourselves, eh?) does put me in mind of Hello Games’ newbie. The Solus Project is billed as a survival game, but more in the classical sense than the newer DayZ, Rust etc one. Devs Teotl Studios – who you may know from The Ball – and Grip – of Unmechanical fame – are at pains to point out it’s not a sandbox jobbie. It’s a singleplayer, linear game in which you will be attacked not by creatures, but by a hostile environment, as well has having to deal with hunger and thirst. Man, that’s easy: eat fingers, drink wee. Survivalists these days, honestly – no backbone, that’s their problem.

Four years.

It has been nearly four years since Darkest Hour has recieved an official update. Today, that changes.

Darklight Games is extremely proud to finally announce the release of Darkest Hour 6.0!

I would like to personally thank a couple of team members by who made this update possible.

Andrew Lett, our level designer, for his tireless efforts and enthusiasm, even when tasked with the monumental amount of work required to update and modernize over 30 levels by hand!

Matt Hands, of the programming team, for the staggering amount of bug fixes and enhancements made to the vehicle code, and of course for diligently (and exhaustively) documenting every commit!

Other special mentions include Peter Klinger, Piotr Lukasik, Torben Hensgens and Ian Campbell. Of course, we also thank our faithful testing team whose efforts have helped make this the most stable and bug free version of Darkest Hour since it's inception.

This is not our last hurrah. Darklight Games will continue to update and modernize the game on a significantly more regular basis. We will provide more information on this in the coming weeks, but for now, we can't wait to play with all of you!

Those interested can find the change log here: http://darkesthour.darklightgames.com/public-relations/change-logs/v6.0.0.pdf

Long live Darkest Hour!

Sincerely,
Colin Basnett

We’re still combing through the assorted reveals from last night’s PC Gaming Show By PC Gamers For PC Gamers Master Race Master Race No Normals Allowed Alright, but one immediate attention-grabber is the follow up to brutalist WW2 multiplayer shooter Rising Storm (n e Red Orchestra). It’s left me all nostalgic – not because the trailer for Rising Storm 2: Vietnam [official site] has a Creedence soundtrack and a style lifted from the only bits dudebros remember from Apocalypse Now, Full Metal Jacket, Platoon et al, but because this used to be how it went before Modern Warfare was a twinkle in an executive’s eye. There’d be a popular World War 2 shooter, and then once its devs got the itch for something a bit less fusty, they’d excitedly go do Vietnam next. … [visit site to read more]
