The Chivalry series is making a comeback at what could be a very interesting time. Despite fierce competition from Mordhau, Torn Banner Studios announced that they are working on Chivalry 2. It will once again be a multiplayer first-person "slasher" set in medieval battlefields. The game, published by Tripwire Interactive, is targeting a 2020 release on the Epic Games Store.

The publisher confirms that, just like their previously announced title Maneater, Chivalry 2 will be a one-year timed...

  • The Escapist Triples Down on Their Allegations Against Star Citizen and Roberts Space Industries

    This news is a continuation of where we left off yesterday in the ongoing battle between The Escapist and Cloud Imperium Games.

    Moments ago, The Escapist decided to triple down on their allegations that they are right and that there are some unsavory events going on with Cloud Imperium Games, Roberts Space Industries, and the development of Star Citizen.
    The Escapist, notwithstanding Cloud Imperium Games' notice and posting, stands by its coverage of Star Citizen and intends to continue to investigate the developing story. Since publishing our original stories, we have been contacted by, and are currently interviewing,

    Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Reportedly 45GB on Consoles

    Moments ago, the Microsoft Store listed the download size for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. It looks like the game will require about 45GB of storage space on the Xbox One. I would assume that the PlayStation 4 version is also about the same size.


    It does not look like the size is still up on the Xbox page, at least for the US store.

  • Bungie Adding Microtransactions to Destiny Next Week

    Bungie Adding Microtransactions to Destiny Next Week

    The latest news posting by Bungie's DeeJ says that microtransactions and a new currency are coming soon to Destiny. Beginning on October 13, the in-game NPC Tess Everis returns to the tower along with the Eververse Trading Company.

    This new system will include new items to sell starting off with 18 new emotes. All of these items can be purchased with the new in-game currency, Silver. Silver, as you may already guess, can be purchased with real-world money through your preferred platform's (Xbox Live, PSN) market.

    Bungie says that if you don't want to purchase anything from Tess you will never have to.

  • Far Cry Primal Teased by Ubisoft; Leaked by the Rest of the Internet

    Far Cry Primal Teased by Ubisoft; Leaked by the Rest of the Internet

    Ubisoft has an annoying lengthy teaser going on leading up to the announcement of a new game. Thanks to a few sites, including IGN Turkey, jumping the gun in a big way, the reveal is already known. The game is Far Cry Primal and it seems as though it will take place during the Ice Age. We're talking about cavemen and crazy mammals. Of course, this also means no dinosaurs.

    This seems to be the Far Cry Sigma that was recently added to the Steam database this past week.

    If we didn't have these leaks, it could be days before the reveal was fully shown during this unnecessarily long live stream. Seriously, the video below...

  • SOMA Review

    SOMA Review

    ”Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.” – Dr. Seuss

    SOMA takes everything you think you know about what “humanity” means and throws it into a blender. What is humanity? Are you human because you have the physical attributes we commonly associate with being a homo sapien? Are you a human because of higher-level thoughts and consciousness? If you remove one piece out of the complex grab bag of what we see humanity as, are we still actually human?

    SOMA presents these questions, and more, as you play through the roughly seven hour-long story. The game is classified as a survival horror game but I found it to be far more sci-fi than horror. It was, at least in my opinion, not quite as scary as Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Are there moments where it can be frightening? Absolutely. For me, however, the bulk of the horror came not from the diverse and chilling monsters or the deep-sea environment, but rather from how the...

  • CIG and Roberts Space Industries Refutes The Escapist's Slander and Threatens Legal Action

    The other day, Cloud Imperium Games (CIG) and Roberts Space Industries (RSI) came under attack by a slanderous hit piece from The Escapist. I wrote up my thoughts about that in our ever growing blog section. That was the latest in a series of events that saw notorious Internet "trolls" going after CIG and RSI without much in the way of facts.

    The Escapist doubled down on their claims, saying that their sources were verified by the site's legal component and that everything checked out. They are sticking to their article. "Not so fast," says RSI's legal counsel! Today, Ortwin Freyermuth, the person who responded to Derek Smart's bullshit issued a lengthy response to The Escapist. The ent...
