Jusant, home of one the best jumps in video games, gets October release date

Jusant, the upcoming climbing game that promises “meditative vibes” for all those who take on the challenge, will release on 31st October. When Halloween comes around, we will be able to get to grips with Don’t Nod’s immeasurably tall tower across Steam, Xbox Series X/S, and PlayStation 5. It will also be releasing day one on Game Pass. The developer shared a new gameplay trailer to accompany this news, which highlights some of the different ways players will be able to approach their great accent.

Larian drops Series S split-screen as “solution” to bring Baldur’s Gate 3 to Xbox this year

Larian’s Swen Vincke says Baldur’s Gate 3 will be coming to Xbox this year, having sat down with Phil Spencer at Gamescom to hash out a few details. The recent RPG has seen a roaring success on PC, where it launched earlier this month. It is set to come to PlayStation 5 on 6th September. However, Xbox has been notably absent from the release schedule thus far, with split-screen gameplay on Series S being the main sticking point. Read more

Sea of Thieves returns to Monkey Island in The Quest for Guybrush next week

Sea of Thieves’ swashbuckling Monkey Island collaboration continues in the second of three monthly Tall Tales next Thursday, 31st August, Rare has announced. Pirates got their first taste of Rare’s take on Mêlée Island – conjured into existence from the memories of Guybrush Threepwood, thanks to some magical shenanigans relating to Sea of Thieves’ purgatorial Sea of the Damned – back in July, in an adventure that admirably captured the series’ point-and-click ambience in exploratory first-person 3D. As you might recall, that first episode – titled The Journey to Mêlée Island – concluded with the return of a certain big

There will be plenty to set Mortal Kombat 1’s Homelander and Omni-Man apart, NetherRealm says

Mortal Kombat 1 is set to release next month. Following the base game’s launch, DLC characters (kharacters?) will join the game. Two such characters will be The Boys’ Homelander and Omni-Man from Invincible. While both of these superhero-types are popular in their own right, they are also remarkably similar in many ways. This is something that had caused the Mortal Kombat 1 community a touch of concern. However, concerned we should not be, at least according to Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon. Speaking with IGN, the developer said these two cape-wearing, super-strong chaps will not be clones of each other

Assassin’s Creed Jade is a surprisingly efficient effort at bringing the series’ open worlds to smartphone

It’s a concept both straightforward and yet seemingly non-sensical: the experience of fully-fledged Assassin’s Creed epic shrunk down to become a free-to-play experience on a mobile phone. But after hands-on time with Assassin’s Creed Jade (now its final title, without the “Codename” moniker) today at Gamescom, I came away surprisingly impressed. Jade is still in closed beta testing, with cut-scenes still missing and feedback from its first player test still to be implemented (more on that later). But as a smartly-made smartphone translation of Ubisoft’s blockbuster franchise, it importantly feels like it ticks all the boxes. As with other smartphone

Last Of Us TV series co-creator has no issue with spin-offs “in principle”

Craig Mazin, showrunner and co-creator of HBO’s The Last of Us adaptation, is open to series spin-offs “in principle”. Speaking to The Wrap, Mazin stated the team hadn’t spoken about spin-offs themselves, as everyone’s keeping their focus on the games’ main narratives of Joel and Ellie. However, while the showrunner may not be dipping his toe into the spin-off waters any time soon, he is “not against the idea of other shows that may draw from these characters or that world”.

Yes, you can begin playing Starfield again via a New Game Plus mode, which Bethesda has now confirmed is present in Starfield.
