Dennaton announce vinyl Collector's Edition of Hotline Miami 2

article image

Leave it to Dennaton Games to come up with a suitably cool Collector's Edition for its long-awaited murdering simulator sequel, Hotline Miami 2. The $60 edition will contain three vinyl discs with 28 tracks from the game's soundtrack.

If the sequel's music is anywhere near as excellent as the original's, that's quite the treat. There's no tracklist yet, as Dennaton wants to keep that a secret until the game's released.

Capcom has announced that its upcoming brawler Street Fighter 5 is being developed with the Unreal Engine 4, the first time in the series' history that Epic's powerful software has been utilised.

That might explain why the upcoming entry is looking so tasty. Capcom showed off a new and improved engine in an initial gameplay trailer released at this year's Capcom Cup event.

Spintires creator claims publisher Oovee has disappeared, "together with the loot"

article image

Developer Pavel Zagrebelnyj came up with the strangely addictive off-road sim Spintires, in which you try to make it through the churned-up roads and forests of Russia in a variety of heavy-duty vehicles. It had beautifully done mud physics, and a few months back it was something of a cult hit.

Since then, despite being very popular on Steam, the game's never really added a whole lot to that basic 'drive a truck through some mud' formula. Now Zagrebelnyj is accusing the UK publisher Oovee of taking the money and running, and preventing him from continuing development on the game.

Ubisoft details first piece of Far Cry 4 Season Pass content, the Escape from Durgesh Prison

article image

Far Cry 4 is set to get its first piece of Season Pass content in January, and Ubisoft has detailed exactly what players can expect. Namely the introduction of permadeath in the new Escape from Durgesh Prison solo and co-op mission.

It's based around a level from the core game's solo campaign, but this time Ajay can team up with his (annoying) co-op buddy Hurk to scavenge weapons and ammo, and complete a series of challenges in a vaguely roguelike structure in order to escape.

The Red Solstice is an eight-player co-op game set on Mars, where you and your friends take on the role of burly space marine types with a penchant for heavy weaponry, tasked with cleansing the planet of unpleasant alien critters.

The Early Access shooter has just received a new update titled 'Pitch Black', which features a new industrial themed map, four new missions and an overhaul of several combat skills for the various classes.

December update for Clockwork Empires adds 100% more fishpeople

article image

Developer Gaslamp Games has released the December update for its steampunk colony management sim Clockwork Empires, and that means another round of brilliantly silly patch notes. My favourites this time include; "colonists will occasionally turn into fishpeople and run into the sea", and "FIXED: Listening to a sermon caused colonists’ bodies to explode."

Life is not easy for colonists in this game. The new Naturalist role for your civilians, along with the new found additions of Laboratories and Scientists you can put to work studying weird artifacts, can lead to new discoveries as well as the aforementioned fish transformations.
