Doom Eternal’s demon guts glisten more brightly with this ray-tracing mod

Doom Eternal is, at its heart, a game about seeing what demons look like on the inside. Thus, anything that adds a bit of pizzazz to that process is generally welcome, and that’s certainly the case for the upcoming ray tracing mod for Doom Eternal. The mod adds a host of new visual effects to Doom Eternal that mimic the hardw

This DIY gaming PC case slots into a backpack and is VR ready

It’s technically possible, we suppose, to strap just about any PC onto your back and say that it’s portable – in fact, we’re pretty sure that’s the moral of the story in Death Stranding. But most of us would prefer to have something a bit smaller than a full-size ATX case tied to our backs, particularl

Wolfenstein is getting a board game

Wolfenstein has always been about killing Nazis, but what if you could do all that… on your tabletop?

Take a tour of Fallout 4’s only flying bunker

A bunker should be a safe place to escape from it all, to seal off the outside world while things get nasty.

Rainbow Six Siege will let you cancel ranked matches with uneven teams

One of the most infuriating things that can happen in Rainbow Six Siege is an uneven match in ranked play.

WWE 2K21 is cancelled

There will be no WWE 2K21. After years of ups and downs with the licensed wrestling series, last year’s WWE 2K20 marked an extra-low point – and with the added uncertainty brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, many fans were left to wonder whether a new entry in the annual series is coming or not. Now, WWE itself has con

Pets are coming to Fallout 76 – but not “edible ones”, you monster

Fallout 76 has just been treated to a meaty new update – Fallout 76: Wastelanders – meaning it’s now awash with human NPCs for the very first time, some of whom have been naughtily pinching players’ gear. However, it looks like man’s best friend is also on the way to the online RPG game’s po
