Here are 100 reasons why Monster Hunter World is the best in the series to date. (Our full review is here too.) 01 – 4K Fidelity Monster Hunter rose to prominence on portable systems: the PSP and the 3DS. The leap from 240p to 4K delivers a long-overdue upgrade that borders on sensory overload. 02 – Staggering Detail in Monster Rendering…

The stakes are usually pretty high in Rainbow Six Siege. Protect the hostage, disarm the bomb, contain a biological outbreak precipitated by an extraterrestrial pathogen. The last one’s new. Yes, as strange as it sounds, an alien virus really is the latest threat to face Siege’s global band of elite operators.

Outbreak contains three missions set across entirely new locations with individual narratives. The missions are titled Sierra Veterans Wing, The Nest, and Sierra Paradise, and take place…

We’re going to kick off the night with a return to Sea of Thieves, while Rare is busy stressing its servers and seeing if it’s ready for launch with a proper Scale Test. We’ll see if we see any issues or disconnects, but that’s the name of the game with this experience.

Within my first hour of playing Kingdom Come: Deliverance, I was beaten up by the town drunk. By the end of the almost 70 hours I spent with it, I was sizing up a trio of bandits with a smirk on my real-life face, knowing even together they were no match for my steel and the extensive training I’d received under some of the toughest knights in this beautifully recreated medieval land. This wasn’t merely a change in stats and equipment. Without a single spell or magic sword, Kingdom Come gave me the abundantly satisfying feeling of transforming from doe-eyed…
