FOR HONOR™ - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (Dominic Tarason)

Ubisoft’s For Honor once looked like a write-off, but the competitive sword-o-brawler has somehow pulled itself together. Today’s expansion – Marching Fire – adds a bundle of new content to the game, a lot of it paid, but some major upgrades free for everyone. All players (regardless of version owned) will get access to a castle siege playmode and a slew of graphical improvements, but a new solo/co-op mode and four new Chinese-themed characters remain the domain of people who put down cash. Below, a launch trailer, featuring stabs, stabs, stabs and the occasional thwack.

Cultist Simulator - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (Dominic Tarason)

Much as I love Cultist Simulator‘s atmosphere, I’ve yet to come close to completing it, my character ground down by the mundanity of maintaining mortal flesh. Today’s DLC, The Dancer, might yet give me a chance at victory – or something close to it. Introducing a new career path as a cabaret dancer, those who pursue the art of dance may find it ties more into the world of the unseen than expected. Or players might just earn the lusty eye of a lord or lady – a free update also introduces romances and rivalries, adding more twists to Weather Factory’s card-based eldritch life-sim.

LEGO® DC Super-Villains - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (Dominic Tarason)

Considering the gleeful destruction in TT Games’s LEGO series, there’s really not much difference between heroism and villainy – all the better for those wanting to take Harley Quinn for a casual hammer-rampage in LEGO DC Super-Villains, released today on PC. It’s yet another in the all-consuming series of kid-friendly superhero sandbox games, and this time gives you the chance to create your own costumed in-between playing as the enemies of the Justice League. Below, an energetic launch trailer featuring a familiar-sounding Joker.

Grand Theft Auto V - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (Alice O'Connor)

“Crunch! A-ah!” sang Queen. “Failure of the industry!” Sadly, even Brian Blessed and his black leather horde descending from the skies failed to make a lasting impact on game development. This week, a Rockstar co-founder put his foot in it talking about “100-hour weeks” for some on Red Dead Redemption 2 and Sega’s parent company proudly declared that now only some employees work more than eighty hours of overtime per month (progress, but…). Another good week in the video games industry. But if you want to put your monkey where your mouse is and support crunch-free games, a load of devs have piped up to point out games they made without crunching; many are good.

Bad North - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (Dominic Tarason)

Another day, another place to buy and launch your games from, although Discord does has the advantage of already being on a huge number of PCs. The gaming-centric multi-chat service just launched its integrated game store, albeit in beta. A few temporary exclusives aside (Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption and Bad North seem noteworthy), it seems largely what you’d expect from a modern games storefront. Still, the upgraded Nitro subscription service – now including access to a library of games – might be worth a look for gaming on the cheap.

The Light Keeps Us Safe - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (Fraser Brown)

The Light Keeps Us Safe works terrible magic with its cacophony of disquieting machine noises. Each new killer robot emits yet another nails-on-chalkboard screech that will bounce around in your head long after you ve fled from their clutches. They re the sounds of factories and dial-up internet and error messages warped and twisted and remixed inside metal demons. Normally they re just grating, but here, in moonlit swamps and forests where there isn t another soul, they start to become malevolent.

Remember that time Chinese warlord Cao Cao teamed up with Zeus to beat up legendary ninja Hattori Hanzo and ten thousand other dudes? Well, Warriors Orochi 4 – released today – certainly does, and I’m starting to think that someone at Koei Tecmo may have fallen asleep in history class. The first in its series to arrive on PC, the Warriors Orochi series are an official crossover between the Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors games, mangling history nearly as badly as players treat its countless expendable soldiers. Below, the overwhelmingly anime launch trailer.

The Hex - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (John Walker)

Pony Island was one of my favourite games of 2016, a Trojan horse of astoundingly clever ideas and arch critique, and incredibly funny. So clearly I was interested to see where developer Daniel Mullins went next. I’m very delighted to report it’s the extraordinary The Hex. A game that defies me to tell you anything about it, not that I’m convinced you’d believe me if I did.

Would you like to crash your bike into dozens of other cyclists, causing a giant bicycle pile-up? Of course you would. Come with me.

With just a day to go until the launch of Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070, those eager to see what Nvidia’s new Turing GPU is capable of will no doubt have seen a flurry of reviews running through the internet halls this afternoon – and the early verdict seems to be it’s just a little bit faster than Nvidia’s current GTX 1080.
