A new video from CD Projekt RED has some teasing glimpses of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt at play. A global hands-on event is about to spill some meaty impressions of the open-world RPG next week.

The studio organised venues around the world for people to get their hands-on experience, and now it's almost time for the dam to burst. The Witcher 3 was delayed until May.

Fancy constructing a flying, flame-spitting siege machine? Besiege is looking for the community thumbs up on Steam Greenlight, and sells itself as a simulation puzzle. Frankly that doesn't do it justice.

Whether it's a castle or a peaceful hamlet packed with soldiers and cattle, we need to conquer! We'll have to devise our most cunning siege weaponry to bring them to their knees.

Second dev diary for Life is Strange examines "Butterfly Effect" of rewinding time

article image

Upcoming episodic adventure Life is Strange from Dontnod Entertainment has just published its second developer diary with the team focusing on the rewinding time mechanic we'll be abusing a lot.

Forget gene-splicing, it's genre-splicing that really matters in the future. Now we have the arrival of Starr Mazer on Kickstarter, seeking $160k to make this shoot 'em up and point-'n'-click adventure inter-genre marriage a reality.

Just to rile the blood of genres-shouldn't-mix conservatives a little more, there's a dash of RPG too - and they want some procedural generation as well. They plan a 'randomised episode' system.

The End in Minecraft is going to be overhauled for PC, at least bringing it up to snuff with the Ender Dragon console gamers face off against, but they'll be "taking it a step further," teases Nathan Adams.

He wouldn't go into detail on these extra changes, and also allay fears that 1.9 was all about the flying beast. "...this isn't all I'm doing for 1.9... not by far," Adams continued.

What about that other RPG Cyberpunk 2077? We're told "worry not" about the highly anticipated sci-fi romp, as its "time will come." There's no release schedule yet for it. Hopefully before 2077.
