Shadwen
Frozenbyte really doesn’t waste any time, does it? Less than a year after Trine 3 was released, the developer is back with timey-wimey stealth game Shadwen. Unfortunately, while it shows promise, maybe Frozenbyte is a bit too eager to get this one out.   read

Fallout 4 and Game of Thrones actors join Dishonored 2 cast

Bethesda has revealed the voice cast for upcoming Dishonored 2. While we got the release lowdown yesterday, the voice cast comes via an exclusive reveal in the latest Game Informer. Daredevil’s Vincent D'Onofrio and Rosario ...

 
Hitman episode 2 review
Hitman's first episode was a measured, strong proof of concept: that Hitman works best in large sandboxes with interstitial systems, rather than trying to string what are effectively set-pieces into a linear narrative. The jo...   read

Mojang stealth released Crown and Council, its new free strategy game

Yesterday Mojang snuck a casual strategy game onto Steam called Crown and Council. So that's what those tricksy Minecraft-makers have been up to!  On the developer's website, the bajillionaires state that "It’...

Teleporting stealth game Twin Souls lives on as Aragami

Oh good! Twin Souls, that Tenchu-inspired undead-assassin game, still exists. It's now known as Aragami, which should help it stand out better, and the footage in this re-reveal trailer is more exciting than what I remember of Lince Works'...

Klei's superb stealth-strategy game Invisible, Inc. comes to PS4

People know Klei for Don't Starve or Mark of the Ninja or maybe even Shank, but I rarely if ever hear folks casually bring up Invisible, Inc., the studio's turn-based corporate espionage game. Hopefully today's PlayStation 4 port will get i...

I want to vacay in Hitman's Sapienza

Despite my confident, casual unholstering of the word "vacay," I've never actually taken a vacation, on account of all the poverty. Still, feels good to dream, and Hitman's take on Italy looks downright idyllic. I mean, not the weird bit wi...

Trine developer's new game, Shadwen, sneaks onto PC and PS4 in May

Shadwen is a stealth game that is actually a stealth game. There's no other option. It doesn't subscribe to the Assassin's Creed-style mindset of "Now you've made a mess of things, time to clean it up." If the player is seen even...

Hitman's monthly episode cadence isn't set in stone

You probably could have predicted this one. IO Interactive, developer of the new episodic Hitman series, has recently revealed that the monthly schedule of releases is now "subject to change." Whereas it seemed like the episodes were m...

The second episode of Hitman has been dated

Hitman may have launched, but it's not done yet! Square Enix will be releasing more episodes down the line to add on to the original Paris level, and next up is Sapienza. The publisher has always targeted an April release date, but now...

Would you rather kill Gary Busey or Gary Cole?

Well, Hitman is no stranger to out-there advertising strategies. At least this one doesn't allude to a heavy flow. Also, preemptive joke reminder: Gary Coleman died in 2010.

PC Port Report: Hitman

AKA Death to Spies 3
Playing Alekhine's Gun made me wish it were 2007 again, because if it were 2007, I could, at least, point to it and say "Hey, this game isn't too bad." Unfortunately, living in 2016 makes Alekhine's Gun feel like an...   read

Review: Hitman

Hitman is the funniest game I've played in a while. IO Interfactive's subtitle-free reboot of its long-running assassination franchise is, mostly, side-stepping cinematics full of S&M nuns and returning to the realm of sl...   read

Hitman's launch trailer is flashy, shows off variety of scenarios

Square Enix is keen to show off what will likely be the last trailer for Hitman until launch, and it does the trick. The sheer amount of different mission parameters are staggering, which won't all arrive at once due to its episodic mo...

These new Styx: Shards of Darkness screenshots sure are colourful

Styx: Master of Shadows was a really great, pure stealth game. Not only that, but as a prequel to Of Orcs and Men it did an excellent job of fleshing out Styx’s character with a surprisingly interesting story. If these new screenshots...

Despite wonkiness, Hitman runs alright on PC
