Deep Silver

Dying Light DLC

Dying Light's new DLC is called The Bozak Horde


Gee, I really wonder what it could be
May 15
I’m going to play a little game with you called "guess the DLC". Dying Light is an open-world, cooperative zombie game with a heavy emphasis on parkour and violently slaughtering zombies in as many different ways as yo... read

May 11
GOG prides itself on offering up a completely DRM-free service. Thankfully, there are now five more DRM-free games on the portal as of today, compliments of efforts between GOG, Deep Silver, and Nordic Games. Those titles inc... read

Deep Silver delays Dead Island 2


Pushed back until 2016 over quality concerns
Apr 30
Dead Island 2 was supposed to release this spring, but that's no longer in the cards, as Deep Silver has announced the open-world zombie game has been delayed until 2016. The publisher and development team at Spec Ops: T... read
No more April/May window
Development for Mighty No. 9 was coming along nicely earlier this year. We got a look at a bunch of levels, and developer Comcept noted that they were "basically done" recently -- they just needed to figure out how to la... read feature

Metro Redux

Metro Redux irradiating Macs on April 16


я не говорю по-русски

In the grim future of Moscow, 2033, people have taken to the underground like rats to avoid the devastation up above. Hunger, disease, infighting, mutants, ghosts; life in the tunnels is rough. People barter for goods with am... read
Homefront delay

Homefront: The Revolution delayed into 2016


Developed by Dambuster, which is comprised largely of Crytek UK veterans
Mar 12
Homefront: The Revolution, the sequel to 2011's Red Dawn: The Game, has been delayed into 2016, according to publisher Deep Silver.  Deep Silver acquired the Homefront rights from Crytek in 2014. Crytek acquired the Home... read
Good to go for a second term
Saints Row IV is absolutely crazy. It is, without a doubt, one of the most off-the-wall sandbox experiences you can have on a console or otherwise. It's an excellent cooperative adventure as well, and it delivers the franchis... read feature

Like a sinner before the gates of Heaven
There’s something about a series that doesn’t feel the need to make a ton of social commentary, or really feel grounded in reality. The Saints Row series is like if the worlds of The Naked Gun and Grand Theft Auto... read feature

Run, you'll never escape
In my years as a freelancer and staffer at various videogame outlets, I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing a ton of great games. In fact, this year I had the privilege of reviewing pretty much every “AAA” game... read feature

Saints Row

This is Saints Row: Gat out of Hell's musical number


When Clancy Brown tells you to do something, you listen
Dec 03
"It's a whimsical, weird fucking game," former Volition creative director Steve Jaros said of Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell when I spoke with him about the Disney-inspired standalone expansion. It's true: there's a musical num... read
Freebies

Metro 2033 free for 24 hours on the Humble Store


For ME?! Ahh, you shouldn't have
Nov 07
The Humble Store is celebrating one year of existence and that means a sale. And since websites tend to give gifts on their birthdays rather than receive them, that also means a full free copy of Metro 2033 for everyone who s... read
Saints Row

Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell leaves no deadly sin unchecked


Needs more sloth, to be honest
Oct 15
Johnny Gat's not a good man. Powerful, but not good. That's why he uses each and every of the seven deadly sins to send all of those already dead to the after-afterlife. Most of them look like they deserve it, to be fair. Especially those nipple-rubbing demons. read
Gat Out of Hell

Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell takes us on a fly-by tour of the underworld


And re-murders the post-alive
Sep 24
Sprout some wings and take an aerial tour of Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell and New Hades with Johnny Gat acting as a murderous guide. When he's not perusing the underworld via an overhead view, he's running down demons in his rambulance or firing swaths of rockets from his armchair. Our promised musical number hasn't shown up yet, but so far, everything is so wonderfully Saints Row. read
There's a full musical number and everything
I've played and enjoyed all of the Saints Row games to date, but wonder how much longer this can last. How much more ridiculous can the series get, and even if there is room to up the insanity, do we even want that? Where Vol... read feature

Volition announces standalone Saints Row expansion Gat Out of Hell


Also, Saints Row IV for PS4 and Xbox One
Aug 29
At its PAX panel, Volition announced a new Saints Row, a standalone expansion of Saints Row IV called Gat Out of Hell (PC, PS3, 360, PS4, Xbox One). It has you travelling to Hell, is half the size of Steelport, and feat... read

Escape Escape Dead Island's time loop on November 18


There's a Rupert Holmes song here somewhere...

Do you like piña coladas and getting caught in zombie-infested time loops? Are you not into yoga, but into land masses that are surrounded by water on all sides? Deep Silver took out a personal ad. It wants ... read

Okay, Metro Redux launch trailer, you got me


I now feel motivated to finish the series
Aug 26
4A Games' remastered Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light are available today on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, either separately for $24.99 or together in the Metro Redux bundle for $49.99. Aside from technical improvements, ... read
Hands-on at gamescom
You'll be able to explore Los Angeles, Santa Monica, some beaches, a golf course, and maybe even more in the final version of Dead Island 2. But what Deep Silver was showing at gamescom 2014 was pretty limited. I only got to run around a small, closed-off section of the Los Angeles suburbs. It was a short taste of what the Southern California zombie-slaughtering life is like.  read feature

I probably shouldn't get my hopes up
There's a new gameplay trailer out for Dead Island 2, called "Sunshine & Slaughter" revealing a variety of ways to to dispatch the undead. The most interesting of which involves some sort weapon modifier allowing players... read feature

Gameplay trailer

Explode zombie heads into raspberry jam with Dead Island 2


First gameplay trailer
Aug 11
This game is a bloody messy. In a good way. I've never been too keen on Dead Island, but maybe with Spec Ops developer Yager on Dead Island 2 (PC, PS4, Xbox One), this will make for a good time. Maybe some white ph... read
Metro Redux

Okay, Metro Redux looks really good compared to the originals


Assuming you played the originals on console
Aug 08
I'm not sure if it's a testament to the visual fidelity of Metro Redux or a stark reminder of how 2033 and Last Light looked on legacy consoles, but this trailer shows that the upgrade for the remake is q... read
TimeSplitters

Crytek still has the rights to TimeSplitters


Damn

Crytek obtained the rights to TimeSplitters after picking up the studio responsible for the series, Free Radical Design, which was later renamed Crytek UK. Recently, that team and the game it was working on, Homefront: The Re... read
Taking the action and RPG out of an ARPG
"I love it." The specter of Diablo looms large over the action-RPG genre; most games borrow heavily from Blizzard's seminal game and those games' success is usually judged on how close they stick to the formula and how well t... read feature

Production starting Q1 2015

A few years ago, Lionsgate picked up the film rights to Dead Island but now Deep Silver is moving forward with Occupant Entertainment to "package, produce, and finance" an adaptation. It's unclear which direction the movie wi... read

Piranha wants to go back to its roots for Risen 3


Promises 'favorite elements' from Gotchic and Risen 1
Jul 23
Piranha Bytes went off in a different direction with its pirate-centric Risen 2: Dark Waters and that didn't sit well with some series fans. For the next game, Risen 3: Titan Lords, the studio claims it has gone back to its ... read

Risen 3's Demon Hunters faction sounds like the one to side with


Or just form an alliance with everyone for completion's sake
Jul 17
First came the CGI trailer for Risen 3: Titan Lords, and now, screenshots. The one above? My favorite of the pack by a wide margin. Some of the others are oddly blinding. The game features three factions and one of them is ca... read
Dead Island 2

You could theoretically make Deep Silver package a real zombie with Dead Island 2 Collector's Edition


...I say we all vote for that option and see where that gets us
Jul 09
Remember the last time we talked about a Dead Island collector's edition and it was a disembodied female torso? I don't think Deep Silver wants to go that route this time, so they're turning to the community to find out what ... read
And now for (another) something different
The next Dead Island game isn't Dead Island 2. Of course, Dead Island: Riptide already showed the series' disregard for numeration. Counting the early access MOBA, Dead Island 2 should be Dead Island 5. But Dea... read feature

Goat Simulator is receiving a North American retail release via Deep Silver


The wait won't be so baa-ad

Not too long ago, we announced that Goat Simulator would be receiving a retail release in the UK. A boxed version of the bizarre farm animal simulator was awesome news, but North American gamers were still relegated to the di... read

Dead Island Epidemic is a 'ZOMBA,' not a MOBA, get it right


OmG, ZaMbEh KiLLiNz!

Dead Island Epidemic's four-minute gameplay video tries really hard to be hardcore, but I cringed at the way the announcer said the title. It wasn't good. With that said, it looks like it could be fun. Obviously this is a MO... read
