Conquer the Midnight Woods, defeat gruesome foes and out-do your friends in a new competitive multiplayer mode, entitled Gold Rush, coming free to fan favourite For The King, from the 26th.

A tightly designed, fast-paced, top-down roguelite, Synthetik will no doubt entertain for hours. With the release of the new Legion Rising free update, there’s even more to enjoy.

Meta: Bandai Namco’s newest fighting title, developed by Soleil Ltd., is quite a bit different from previous Naruto titles—the Ultimate Ninja Storm series is, of course, beloved by many fans of both the game genre and the Naruto franchise. With Shinobi Striker, Bandai Namco has stepped away from the tried and true recipe, with (relatively) great success.

For the King refuses to hold your hand, making it a real challenge that feels rewarding. Despite its slow combat, there’s a ton of enjoyable content to make it worth your while.

Imagine vehicular combat reminiscent of Twisted Metal mixed with competitive tower rush strategy. Players choose a faction, and a deck of vehicles to take into a battle against either an AI or human opponent. With limited resources, players will need to collect the appropriate supplies needed to deploy vehicles of destruction against the enemy team. While you're doing this, the opposing player will be vying for the same goals on top of trying to take you down. Each team has a station which needs protecting, and the end goal is to destroy the other teams base. Avoid the enemy or destroy them head-on, the strategy you choose is up to you and reflected in the vehicles you choose to secure victory.

Aftercharge is a 3 versus 3 FPS made by Chainawesome Games and set for release in 2018. Screenshots I saw on Steam resembled a team-based shooter, and so my interest peaked.

During a live stream in Japan, Capcom announced new details and a trailer for the upcoming Monster Hunter: World. This new trailer introduces several new and returning favorite Elder Dragons.

Play Warframe. Play it for more than a few hours, preferably with friends, and keep an open mind into doing some third-party research to straighten out some of these systems. Warframe takes so much of what makes ARPG’s addictive, and rounds it out with more polish and depth than anything else on the current games market.If the hooks aren’t deeply embedded by then, maybe something this in-depth isn’t for you.

Raiders of the Broken Planet just isn’t there yet. While an alpha build of the title showed promise, the title has much development ground to cover yet. Raiders of the Broken Planet isn’t half-baked: it barely got into the oven before players were encouraged to start eating the dough.

The moments I did have a good time were few and far inbetween, often overlooked and bogged down by repetitious fights and long periods of grinding out moves and experience. The glitches I experienced were numerous, but thankfully Sloclap is aware of most of these problems and is releasing patches to help eliminate them, while also adding new features. If you’re looking for crazy flashy combos and special moves, this isn’t the title for you. While Absolver is a fighting game, it’s a far cry from the likes of Street Fighter, Tekken, or Injustice. With many moves grounded in reality, or at least inspired by them, Absolver’s combat system still requires strategy, but even moreso patience — a quality for which many do not play fighting games.

Independent developer Fatshark today announced the sequel to the million selling game Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide.

Pixel Wizards announced Chessaria: the Tactical Adventure, to be released in October. The development studio, founded in 2016 in Paris, France, by Matthieu Baldy and Sevan Kessissian, presented the upcoming Steam release as the first turn-based tactical game based on chess at its core.

It’s Mayhem Monday, Agents! When LEGION's most sinister troops are wreaking havoc and MAYHEM needs to get the job done, Persephone calls on The Firing Squad.

Super Death Arena does a good job at delivering the gameplay which makes the genre great: death arenas, hordes of opponents, fancy weapons, and lots of bloodshed. Unfortunately, it’s also much too thin in terms of content. That’s an encouraging thought for the developers, I suppose, as its mediocrity isn’t caused by a lack of quality but quantity instead. If anything, grab this one when on sale. A big sale. That is, if there’s anyone left to play.

HELLDIVERS™ is a hardcore, cooperative, twin stick shooter from the creators of Magicka. As part of the elite unit called the HELLDIVERS, players must work together to protect SUPER EARTH and defeat the enemies of mankind in an intense intergalactic war.

Helldivers™ might be the most enthralling game I have had the joy to play since Space Engineers (for very different reasons, of course). To put it shortly, this is a very strong title with incredible, innovative gameplay elements, solid multiplayer, and a smooth yet visceral game-feel to rival the best in the business.
