Relic releases a dev diary for Dawn of War III ahead of its open beta

I get the feeling that Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III is going to be divisive to the fan base. A lot of people seem to be complaining about a supposed "dumbing down" of mechanics or how there isn't anything new on offer. I don't necessar...   read

You can pre-load this week's Ghost Recon Wildlands open beta

Impressions out of the Ghost Recon Wildlands closed beta haven't been all that encouraging, but I did see some people say they were thankful for having tried it anyway. The early hands-on time told them what they needed to know about the o...   read

There's going to be an Injustice 2 beta, sign up for it now

Fighting crime and fighting crime fighters -- that's pretty much what Injustice 2 boils down to. The DC Comics fighter bursts into the room on May 16, but you have the opportunity to engage in fisticuffs before then. Today, a registra...   read

Fight for something in For Honor's beta at the end of January

It's not hard to figure out your motivation in For Honor. It's eponymous, it's right there in the name. You fight for honor, a prize of the spirit that transcends anything material. Honor isn't easy to attain, though. It's one of those cov...   read

When did team Ghost become such dicks?

At the start of this Ghost Recon Wildlands trailer, I was a bit confused by what I was seeing. I thought this was some type of extravagant CGI, but it looked a bit stiff. Then it dawned on me that this was live action and I became even more...   read

The Dreams beta is still happening, just not this year

Remember Dreams? It's something I haven't thought about in some time, but Media Molecule hasn't slowed down on developing its game/art/whatever-you-want creation game. There was supposed to be a beta this year, but with January looming, yea...   read

Gigantic hits open beta at last on Xbox One and Windows 10

Thanks in large part to its vibrant art direction, Gigantic was a real attention-grabber when it first hit the scene. But how many of you ever bothered to sign up for and play the beta? Y'know, I never did! That process is easier now as th...   read

The Ghost Recon Wildlands beta should be good for some silly fun

Ubisoft has opened signups for the Ghost Recon Wildlands closed beta, which is something I'd like to try out despite not really feeling the co-op squad shooter's super-serious tone or its disappointingly standard-feeling gunplay. The destr...   read

Steep is throwing an open beta soon

Ubisoft is about to roll out a multi-part beta for Steep, its open-ended snowboarding (and skiing, and wingsuit flying) game, and I'm genuinely curious to dig in after sampling it back at PAX. The dates to remember are coming up soon: Nove...   read

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 takes DBZ gaming to the next level

Ever since my early years, the Dragon Ball franchise has taken a significant part of my life, including its video games. Becoming a huge fan of the series, I played classics such as the Super Butoden games and Dragon Ball Z: The Legend...   read

In Infinite Warfare, it's kill or be killed (and that's how it has always been)

"We like to keep it simple: Kill or be killed." That's how Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare's commander guy bluntly explains the battlezone fray, and, by extension, the game's multiplayer happenings. This trailer for the upcoming multiplayer...   read

Paladins will probably do pretty well for itself on consoles

With its open beta newly available on Steam Early Access, Paladins: Champions of the Realm has stepped into the spotlight. This is a team-based shooter from Hi-Rez, the studio behind SMITE and Tribes: Ascend, and I don't think it's unfair ...   read

Time to get sucked back into Stardew Valley

I've wrestled free of Stardew Valley. I don't know how I got away from the soothing farm life sim, but I did, and I'm hesitant to so much as look at its listing in my Steam library unless I have no obligations left for the day. This isn't a...   read

DICE is tweaking Battlefield 1's Conquest mode

A whole mess of people played the Battlefield 1 beta. 13.2 million, to be more precise. While many of us just used the limited experience to find out if Battlefield's move to WWI was indeed a good one (and to have fun with horse-related hij...   read

Team Ninja has more changes in store for Nioh after the beta

Nioh would've been such a fitting end-of-the-year game for me. Based on everything we know about Team Ninja's brutal action-RPG and what we've played first-hand, I think it's going to be not only a time sink, but one that requires our darn-...   read

Hi-Rez Studios' familiar-looking team shooter Paladins hits open beta

The Behemoth is running a beta for its weird strategy RPG soon

The Behemoth is taking a crack at turn-based strategy with Pit People, a game that, like the studio's prior work (Castle Crashers, BattleBlock Theater), is silly and best played in co-op. One day you won't have to hear it from me -- you'll...   read

I'm definitely going to be keeping an eye on Master X Master
