Well, let’s let them describe it in their own words: The amazing developer tools part isn’t hyperbole either, PlayCanvas ships with an impressive amount of polished and high quality tools. Where it does get a bit confusing is where the open source part stops, and the pay to use it part starts. Getting Started There are three ways to develop with PlayCanvas.

According to Warhorse Studios, after this update, you will probably want to check your old save files, created with version 1.3.4 or older.

The related announcement reads: “If you finished main quest Baptism of Fire and the following quest (Questions and Answers) did not start, reload any save from Baptism of Fire and progress through the battle. The quest Questions and Answers should start after the … [Read more...] about Kingdom Come: Deliverance Easter Update Is Live, Free HD Texture And Audio Pack Also Available
Released last month on consoles and PC, Kingdom Come: Deliverance drew praise for its attention to detail towards history and plenty of deep mechanics, and now a hefty new update has been released for players of the historical RPG. Developer Warhorse Studios has released the new Easter Update 1.41 for Kingdom Come: Deliverance, with the update itself including over 200 bug fixes for specific quests and overall in-game systems and features.

Alongside the bug fixes, the update itself also includes some new cosmetic options through new hair and beard options for players to utilize, which are available in the bathhouses.

With a new Tomb Raider film about to hit theaters, the world is ripe for some Lara Croft nostalgia. Here to fill that void we have some delightful remaster news: the first three Tomb Raider games are getting made-up really pretty, and they’ll be free for gamers who own the originals. The reason why, however, might surprise you. Realtech VR has announced that it will release remastered versions of Tomb Raider 1, 2 and 3 on Steam. These remasters will be based on the mobile versions, will support OpenVR, will feature a new 3D engine, and will be free to all owners of these games. Got all that? Realtech has made remasters that require the DOS version of each game on steam. Realtech is known for making demos and mobile ports, so this seems both in their wheelhouse but also very new territory for that team. The new 3D engine was with a better looking post process for better lights and shadow, which can be turned on or off if you prefer a legacy texture pack. This also adds support for … [Read more...] about Tomb Raider games are getting free remasters on Steam
Going anywhere nice this weekend? Have you considered the irradiated ruins of post-apocalyptic Boston? You might fancy a crack at Fallout 4, as this weekend Bethesda will hold yet another days-long free trial of the full game. The speedrun record is under one hour so you certainly could ‘complete it’ in one weekend, but myself I like the sound of wandering aimlessly. While I find Bethesda’s open-world RPGs quite flat and have never finished the main quest of a single one, I do always enjoy spending a while pottering and seeing sights. That’s my weekend sorted. The trial weekend lets everyone play the full version of Fallout 4 (minus its paid DLC) for free through Steam. It started just now, at 6pm UK time on Thursday, and will run until 9pm on Sunday the 4th (1pm Pacific, if that’s your thing). Head on over to Steam to download it. It’s about 25GB to download, or a whole lot more if you also want the big ol’ official high-resolution texture … [Read more...] about Fallout 4 blasts another free trial weekend
