Wooohooo! Those fine folks at ID software are making a few key changes to DOOM Multiplayer and this weekend it’s going FREE TO PLAY on PC so we can all check out the changes for ourselves 🙂 Toted as update 6.66 this one completely changes the way DOOM’s multiplayer progression system and some mechanics around power ups. Now, instead of unlocking new content through random loot drops, we’ll race to complete in-game challenges.
You can download DOOM right now via STEAM, the button for this has replaced the usual ‘buy’ button with new ‘play’ button 🙂 This will give you access to the first two levels of the campaign + full access to the mulitplayer modes.
As a part of these massive changes to how it all works, ID will reset everyone’s level back to zero, but the good news is we won’t lose any of the gear and powers we’ve already unlocked and those who managed to get the top-tier Slayer level with the old system will get a special badge to reflect this. Little changes to the UI have been made too with a new HUD and kill cards that shows us detailed of kills, and the weapons used to get them.
Oh yes, and the Multiplayer DLC is going to be FREE!
These introduce nine new multiplayer maps to dominate, three new playable demons to unleash, new weapons to master, a new equipment, and a host of new armour sets, taunts and more!
If you haven’t tried DOOM for yourself yet, you’re in for a treat! It’s a brutally fun and challenging modern-day shooter experience packed full of relentless demons, impossibly destructive guns and has an absolutely killer soundtrack 🙂
Capcom have nailed the claustrophobic atmosphere and the graphics are crazy good, we jumped several times at the sight of our own shadows 😛 We don’t want to spoil things so watch the gameplay FPS video below at your own peril, Gaming PC wise we tested with a GTX 1050 system and it ran like a dream 🙂
Tales of Berseria, the latest addition to Bandai Namco’s long-running Tales of series of action-RPGs, now has a demo available to download via Steam (demo download button is just on the right).
Join Velvet and a crew of pirates as they take to the sea in an all-new adventure developed by the celebrated team behind the Tales of series. Veteran Tales of character designer Mutsumi Inomata has personally designed Velvet and famous Japanese animation studio, ufotable, returns to animate the game’s breathtaking cutscenes; delivering truly epic and emotional storytelling in their unique style. This adventure will have us travelling to the many islands that make up the sacred kingdom of Midgand to uncover the mysteries of the demon blight.
If you’re lucky enough to have played the previous Tales of Zestiria or the classic Tales of Symphonia (such a wonderful soundtrack also) you’ll know how much fun these anime action games can be and looking at the new trailer below – this one’s looking GOOD!
Performance wise things are also looking very good indeed with a GTX 1050 Gaming PC happily keeping things at 60FPS on max settings as we battle some angry snakewomen on the beach 🙂
This is a limited time only promotion and is set to end soon on November 7th, you can jump in by clicking the “download demo” button which is just to the right of the full game “add to cart button” 🙂
Enter the fractured psyche of Bruce Wayne and discover the powerful and far-reaching consequences of your choices as the Dark Knight. In this gritty and violent new story from the award-winning creators of The Walking Dead – A Telltale Games Series, you’ll make discoveries that will shatter Bruce Wayne’s world, and the already fragile stability of a corrupt Gotham City.
AIRHEART is a new game just about to hit early access on Steam, an action game about a young woman who flies her airplane and catches skyfish among beautiful sky islands 🙂
The game continues on the story from “Cloud Chasers” in which Amelia was trying to reach the Above, a city residing on a giant flying island in the clouds where there is enough water for everybody. She travelled through the deserts with her father Francesco, dealing with all the dangers of the migration on their path. But that city called Granaria seems not as welcoming as she hoped it will be, instead she found a harsh society with a strong class system. After working as a child labourer in an airplane factory for years she works now as a part-time fisherman and part-time mechanic at a small corner-shop fixing airplanes 🙂
Blindflug Studios have setup a pretty fun little challenge with the chance to get your hands on (figuratively, it’s a download) the full game 🙂 And all you have to do is beat the boss in the free demo that’s available now, and then share your accomplishment via either a YouTube Channel or Stream (even if you don’t have one right now this is a great excuse to start one).
Once you’ve completed the challenge submit your gameplay here, it’s early access so now is the time to submit any suggestions for what you’d like to see in the game as well 🙂
An early treat for the highly anticipated horror sequel – Outlast 2, has just appeared online and you can download the Outlast 2 DEMO via steam right now 🙂
Outlast 2 is the sequel to the acclaimed survival horror game Outlast. Set in the same universe as the first game, but with different characters and a different setting, Outlast 2 is a twisted new journey into the depths of the human mind and its dark secrets. You are Blake Langermann, a cameraman working with your wife, Lynn. The two of you are investigative journalists willing to take risks and dig deep to uncover the stories no one else will dare touch. You’re following a trail of clues that started with the seemingly impossible murder of a pregnant woman known only as Jane Doe. The investigation has lead you miles into the Arizona desert, to a darkness so deep that no one could shed light upon it, and a corruption so profound that going mad may be the only sane thing to do…
The games world is very dark but you’ve got your trusty camcorder with night vision mode to help you see things – just keep an eye on that battery life 🙂 We’ve tried to keep things as spoiler free our RX 460 Gameplay FPS test below and highly recommend playing this one with the lights out and headphones on for sure!
