I completed Control two weeks in the past and now all I can take into consideration is extra Control. Good information on that entrance, as Remedy introduced two expansions this week—together with one themed round Alan Wake? It definitely appears that approach.

That information, plus a couple of Tokyo Game Show bulletins, Civilization in Excel, Civilization-as-battle-royale, KFC’s new online game obsession, a System Shock III trailer, and extra.

This is gaming information for September 9 to 13.

Free frights

For the primary time ever, Epic’s free recreation of the week is one I haven’t performed. Conarium, launched in 2017, is “a chilling Lovecraftian game” and the screenshots look neat, although it holds a middling rating on Steam. Still, it’s free proper? Nothing to lose by selecting it up.

And keep tuned subsequent week for what I assume is Arkham Asylum or one among its sequels. Epic’s teaser solely says “???” in the meanwhile, although the accompanying image of Batman is clue sufficient.

On a extra restricted timescale, Humble is making a gift of copies of Endless Space and its expansion till round mid-day Saturday. It’s nowhere close to pretty much as good as its sequel, however for those who’re in search of a little bit of space-based 4X motion I’d nonetheless advocate grabbing the gathering.


Oh and hey, talking of Endless Space 2, there’s a brand new enlargement. Dubbed Awakening, it provides a brand new Nakalim faction. The Nakalim are a crumbling empire, and thus start the sport with a major head begin on the tech tree—however they’re horrible at new analysis, and should search out “Relics” all through the galaxy to stimulate new discoveries. Nifty in concept, although Steam critiques appear torn.

Project REsistance

Our first Tokyo Game Show announcement: Capcom formally unveiled Project Resistance, a multiplayer Resident Evil spin-off. It’s asymmetrical, with 4 Survivors battling in opposition to one “twisted Mastermind,” who seemingly locations traps and monsters from the security of safety cameras. That’s a neat twist, however time will inform whether or not it could draw (and preserve) an viewers.
