THE first Fortnitemares event was a little under a year ago, and one of the very first events to include the game's battle royale mode. It's coming back for a second go-around this year this week, and is bringing skins, challenges and other loot for your gaming pleasure. The first Hallowe'en event gave us some of the game's more charming and original skins, including Skull Trooper, which stand in some contrast to the overwrought and derivative current batch. Some Hallowe'en events have already started, with a number of spooky cosmetics including spider-people, vampires and, or course, the aforementioned Skull Trooper himself. A couple of days of terrible poetry have teased Fortnitemares, which is sure to be the in-game Hallowe'en celebration, and some changes to implement the full force of the forced 'spookiness' must be on their way. Yesterday's Save the World update revealed a couple of spooky additions to the paid-for co-op side of the game, and revealed that its much-awaited … [Read more...] about Fortnite Hallowe’en event – when does Fortnitemares start again and what leaked skins are there?

Last month I visited Behaviour Interactive in Montreal for an early look at Deathgarden, an asymmetrical multiplayer game that builds on the ideas Behaviour struck gold with in Dead By Daylight. No one—not even the developers—expected Dead By Daylight to do this well. Since its release in 2016, the horror game of hide-n-seek, one powerful killer pitted against a group of weak survivors, has sold more than four million copies.I talked with game director Mathieu Côté about Dead By Daylight's growth, developing a game alongside a passionate community, the challenges of asymmetrical multiplayer, loot boxes, and more.Wes Fenlon, PC Gamer: I pictured the Dead By Daylight team moved on to the next game and you had a small group maintaining it. But the team has actually grown.Mathieu Côté: We had planned for a team that launches a game and we maintain it so people are happy, and some people are going to go work on something else. That did not happen. We had a … [Read more...] about How Dead By Daylight proved analysts wrong and became one of the biggest games on Steam
It’s safe to say that Fortnite is one of the most popular games in the world right now, especially when you look at just how many people are playing Fortnite. If you don’t know, there are 45 million Fortnite players worldwide and it’s been breaking records with its 3.4 million concurrent users. A lot of those players are probably like me though, and have started playing Fortnite within the past six months, hopping right on the back of that popularity bus. But you might be surprised to hear that Fortnite has actually been seven years in development. Fortnite was actually first revealed in 2011 at the Spike Video Game Awards and the original game took a lot of inspiration from the likes of Gears of War, Minecraft and Left 4 Dead. Developer Epic Games wanted to create something “different and fun”, so a decision to create a cooperative PVE zombie game was produced - something that would eventually become Fortnite: Save the World. It wasn’t until … [Read more...] about The evolution of Fortnite: how Fortnite became the game we know and love today

Next month, Grand Theft Auto 5 celebrates its third birthday on PC. And yet, despite its age, the open world crime simulator attracted record player numbers last year—driven by GTA Online's Doomsday Heist, which launched on December 12, 2017. Two days later, Rockstar rolled out the Criminal Enterprise Starter Pack. Promising new players a leg up in Los Santos for £40/$40, I picked up the multiplayer welcome bundle and raised a single profile from level 16 to 85 in just short of five weeks. I maxed out my character's skill stats and earned a small fortune along the way, but sunk dozens of hours into the game during this time. Is the Criminal Enterprise Starter Pack worth your money, then? Or would grinding free-of-charge, or picking up select Shark Cash Cards yield the same (or better) results? As you might expect, that depends on how you approach GTA Online. Let's take a closer look. What do you get? Rockstar bills the Criminal Enterprise Starter Pack as … [Read more...] about Is GTA Online’s Criminal Enterprise Starter Pack worth $40?
