Band Together in Terror: The Outlast Trials Review

The Outlast Trials proves that survival horror can be more fun with friends.

The Outlast Trials is a four-player PvE game taking place in the Cold War era. The game's opening moments and lore paint a gruesome and wicked scene that will be familiar to series veterans but disquieting to those new to the Outlast universe. Players work their way through a series of experiments, each of which plays out on various large maps like a police station, a courthouse, a carnival, and more. The g...

On April 24, President Joe Biden signed a foreign aid package that also included a bill that could ban TikTok in the United States. This ban can only be averted if the China-based company that owns TikTok, ByteDance, sells off the popular social media app before the 270 day time limit is up.

    Fallout 4 Next-gen Update Downgraders are the Most Popular Mods on PC

    Over 37,000 downloads and counting.

    As many players have come to find out already, that Fallout 4 next-gen update seems to be quite busted on all platforms. The issues that have come from last week's update are perhaps most evident with the PC version of the game. While consoles may have some bugs here and there that are common to all platforms, the PC version has the added pitfall of user mods being completely broken.

    At release, the only course of action PC gamers...

    That Fallout 4 Next-gen Update is a Mess on All Platforms

    Fans have waited years only to get a half-baked update.

    A "next-gen" update for Fallout 4 players on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S was announced back in December 2022. It was delayed out of a planned 2023 release and finally saw the light of day just this week on April 25th.

    Sadly, the long-awaited patch came out feeling like it still needed some time in the oven. Not only are some long-standing bugs not fixed (crashes related to weapon debris on Nvidia...

  • Battlefield 2042's Stadium Map is More Spawn Area than Play Area

    Battlefield 2042's Stadium Map is More Spawn Area than Play Area

    *sigh*

    DICE just provided a new developer insight blog on the upcoming Stadium map coming to Battlefield 2042 on April 30th. The Stadium in question comes from the part of Hourglass that was removed when that map got its rework back in Season 5. Fans really, really wanted the Stadium to return and DICE listened.

    Only, the return of Stadium as its own map maybe leaves a lot to be desired. Today's developer blog shows off some of the changes the teams at EA made to rework...
