I’ve been a fan of Redlynx’s Trials series since it was a browser game, and I remain resolutely rubbish at them. Devious precision platformers cunningly disguised as motorsport, the next game in the series – Trials Rising – looks to keep up the facade. Rising is due for release on February 12th next year but players with a taste for pain and the ability to stomach a few thousand repetitions until you nail a jump just right> can sign up for a closed beta next month, running from September 13th to 16th. Below, a gleefully painful new trailer from Gamescom.

Hearthstone‘s Boomsday Project expansion introduced a whole new world of chaos to the unpredictable free-to-play card game. A multitude of game-changing (or wrecking) cards with scattershot and explosive effects have definitely refreshed the game a bit, but those wanting to take things slow and poke around the new systems at their own pace might have been left a little cold. The Puzzle Lab, launched today, might just provide that opportunity. It’s a new solo mode for Hearthstone, featuring single-turn puzzles spread across four categories. Below, a video explaining it all.

It’s so very good that Devil May Cry 5 is aware of just how daft it is. Unveiled to great surprise at E3 back in June, Capcom have been demoing their hack n’ slasher revival at Gamescom. As well as giving us a firm March 8th release date for next year, Capcom also dropped a new trailer, and it’s leaning all the way> into the ridiculous excess that the series became famous for in Devil May Cry 3 onwards. Check the videos below for demons, gore, banter straight out of a superhero cartoon, wildly enthusiastic vocal battle themes, and some gameplay footage.

Dota 2 - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (Dominic Tarason)

While Twitch still seems a popular venue to watch Dota 2 mega-tourney The International, Valve have rolled out a few upgrades to Steam Broadcasting. If it tickles your fancy, you can now watch the massive esport event on Steam.TV, complete with Steam friends integration and the option to invite your regular Dota posse to watch the match with you in a private chat (text or voice) instance. While focused on Dota 2 for now – introducing some game-specific features to the streaming interface – Valve plan on extending “Watch Party” features to all games after the tourney. (more…)

Burnout Paradise is one of my all-time favourite games. It’s always in my top 5. I’ve bought it on multiple systems, multiple times. I come back to it more than any other game. And bloody hell, there are things I hate about it. Things that, for reasons beyond comprehension, EA have chosen to leave in the Remastered version.

Guacamelee! 2 - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (Alice O'Connor)

The week of Gamescom is dominated by chat about games we won’t get to play for months, but here comes one bright new game out today for all to play: Guacamelee! 2, sequel to the 2013 metroidvania which our John liked so. Once again, luchadors must biff baddies real hard as they leap around, explore the world, and learn new moves to biff baddies even better. Observe, a launch trailer!

War Thunder - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (Dominic Tarason)

War Thunder may have started life as a pure World War 2 air combat sim, but developers Gaijin Entertainment don’t seem like they’ll be satisfied until the free-to-play game encompasses the entire history of vehicular warfare. Next on the cards for the game: Helicopters, coming in patch 1.81 as announced at Gamescom. Naval combat has been in beta testing for some time now, but rotary-wing aircraft always seemed like a dream, only teased in an earlier April Fools event. Turns out they were just hovering overhead. Check the debut trailer and some streamed footage below.

Turns out, Dontnod’s small-town mystery Twin Mirror does indeed have a fair bit in common with Deadly Premonition. I’d avoided mentioning my suspicions when the Life Is Strange studio announced their next game earlier this year, because I recognise I have a problem of shouting “THAT’S LIKE DEADLY PREMONITION!” any time I see e.g. a car, a vending machine, a tree, or a man in a suit. But our mystery-investigating man goes inside his head to organise his thoughts and has an imaginary friend helping out, like Deadly Premonition. Except instead of a good boy like Deadly Premonition’s Zach, Twin Mirror’s man shares his head with a total jeb end. Come meet him in this new trailer.

It s difficult to give a hugely meaningful preview based on hands-off footage, especially if that footage was all pre-recorded. What I can definitely tell you, if this will be any surprise, is that if you really liked or disliked Life Is Strange, you will probably have the same reaction to Life Is Strange 2 because it is Life Is Strange but more.

Blockchain Tycoon - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (Fraser Brown)

Premature Evaluation is the weekly column in which we explore the wilds of early access. This week, Fraser s delving into the confusing world of cryptocurrencies in Blockchain Tycoon. What is a blockchain? Why are people mining them? Are there tiny digital pickaxes? A lot of questions need to be answered.>

Blockchain Tycoon has been designed with an eye towards realism, apparently, and while I m a stranger to the mysteries of cryptocurrency (there s only one kind of cash that I have any interest in), I m still convinced that things couldn t start in a more authentic manner. I, an inexperienced and overconfident man, have been given a huge stack of cash and a warehouse from which I can grow my fledgling startup into a cryptocurrency empire. It s a classic riches to riches story.
