Tactical RPG sequel King's Bounty 2 delayed to August on Xbox One, PS4, Switch, and PC
Tactical RPG sequel King's Bounty 2 delayed to August on Xbox One, PS4, Switch, and PC
King's Bounty 2, the sequel to Heroes of Might and Magic creator Jon Van Caneghem's classic tactical fantasy RPG, will no longer release in March as originally announced and is now expected to make its way to Xbox One, PS4, Switch, and PC on 24th August this year. King's Bounty 2 is developer 1C Entertainment's first stab at a numbered King's Bounty sequel (it's been intermittently releasing new instalments since acquiring the series rights in 2007), and ambitiously aims to combine the first game's celebrated turn-based tactical action with more modern third-person, open-world adventuring. Once a hero has been selected at the start (three are promised, each with their own stories), there are quests to complete and NPCs to meet.

Frontier shares more on Elite Dangerous: Odyssey's new planetary settlements
While console players will now be waiting a little longer than expected for the arrival of Elite Dangerous' Odyssey expansion, its foot-based first-person antics aren't too far off for those on PC - and ahead of its "late spring" launch on the platform, developer Frontier has honed in on one of its new features, Settlements, and shared more details. Odyssey's settlements, you might recall, are dustbowl-like havens for NPCs belonging to that system's dominant faction and are found on the surface of certain planets and moons.

Ambitious Open-World RPG Skyclimbers Is Coming To Switch, Subject To Crowdfunding Success
Base-building, resource management and monster-taming ahoy! Paratope has revealed plans to bring its open-world RPG Skyclimbers to the Switch, but before you get too excited at the prospect, it's worth noting that the game is still a long way from release – the Kickstarter campaign required to fund full development is yet to go live. Skyclimbers will include real-time base building, NPCs, resource management, item crafting and much more besides.

Turns Out Zelda: Breath Of The Wild's NPCs Share A Common Bond With The Humble Mii
Turns Out Zelda: Breath Of The Wild's NPCs Share A Common Bond With The Humble Mii
Facing facts. Switch launch title Zelda: Breath of the Wild continues to throw up cool secrets even today, and Twitter user @HEYimHeroic has just unearthed another: the NPCs in the game use an updated version of the Mii face creation tool which first appeared when the Wii was released in 2006. It makes sense that Nintendo would use an existing tool to streamline the process of creating characters for the game, but it's still somewhat surprising that a system created 15 years ago is still being used in Nintendo's AAA software.

Elite Dangerous' Odyssey expansion shows off some on-foot combat in new gameplay trailer
Elite Dangerous' Odyssey expansion shows off some on-foot combat in new gameplay trailer
Elite Dangerous' eagerly awaited Odyssey expansion - the one that gives you feet, among other things - isn't too far off now, and developer Frontier has cranked its hype handle a little tighter with the release of a new gameplay trailer, debuting some first-person shooty combat. When the paid Odyssey expansion arrives, Commanders will, for the first time, be able to leave the confines of their star ships, stretching their legs to roam around the likes of outposts, planetports, spaceports, even dustbowl-like settlements. Here, they'll find NPCs only to happy to dole out missions that reward credits, and at least some of those will require players to draw their weapon and indulge in a spot of laser-spewing on-foot action.

Wander round space stations and settlements in Elite Dangerous' latest Odyssey dev video
Wander round space stations and settlements in Elite Dangerous' latest Odyssey dev video
Come the arrival of Elite Dangerous' major Odyssey expansion early next year, Commanders suffering from a severe case of butt-clench will finally be able to clamber out their cockpits and step foot on solid ground; planets we've already had a glimpse at, but now Frontier has offered a more thorough look at the interstellar japes awaiting players as they first-person their way around social hubs such as space stations and settlements as part of its latest developer video. Players wanting to stretch their legs somewhere a little more lively than the relatively barren wastes of Elite Dangerous' new explorable planets can disembark at the likes of outposts, planetports, spaceports, even dustbowl-like settlements back on terra firms, and here they'll be able to find work, undertake missions, or simply do a bit of socialising with NPCs. Odyssey will, of course, mark the first time Elite has had fully modelled and animated NPCS in-game (they'll be generated based on Elite's background simulation to reflect the dominant faction in a particular area), and they're able to move around, adding a bit of personality to the world, and giving players the opportunity to speak and interact with them.
