The next RPG from the creates of The Witcher trilogy is a Cyberpunk 2077. Adapted from the tabletop game Cyberpunk 2020, it is set fifty-seven years later in dystopian Night City, California, an open world in which a group known as Edgerunners serve society in eight different roles, which the player is free to choose and customize a character from. Player agency and choice lead to alternate endings.
CD Projekt Red teased the game 5 years ago, but then we radio silent as they worked on The Witcher 3. No news is often bad news, however this time around it looks like the opposite was true. The new trailer looks stunning.
Bethesda dropped the gameplay trailer for Rage 2 today and I have to admit it looks pretty good. Avalanche Studios was a smart choice to partner with for this game. The car combat in the first Rage game was pretty weak, but Avalanche did a great job of it in Mad Max. It also looks like the game will have a much more open world and sense of place this time, something the first game failed to achieve. For more details, check out this post.
I came across this game the other day and I have to say it looks really interesting. It looks sort of like a cross between Stalker and Bioshock, so consider me very interested. Check out the official site for more information.
Midair, a Kickstarter game that I backed years ago, is now out of early access and free to play. The game is heavily influenced by the classic Tribes games, which I consider to be some of the best multiplayer games ever created. I have been playing the early access builds off and on for about a year now and the game has come a long way and is currently in a pretty good state. The only thing I am unsure about is the progression system which lets you unlock abilities with points as you rank up. I am a bit old school, and the idea of having things locked behind a leveling system seems a bit out of place in a Tribes-like game. However the game has a “Manaborn Game Pass” you can buy to unlock everything for you immediately. As a Kickstarter backer I already have the game pass and will be using it on launch day. Anyway, the game gets a solid recommendation from me, especially at its free to play price point with a reasonably priced option to unlock everything.
