Stop-motion-style space adventure Harold Halibut looks sublime in new story trailer
Developer Slow Bros' "handmade" space adventure Harold Halibut has given its handcrafted sets and claymation-style characters another gorgeous airing in a brand-new story trailer. Harold Halibut is part stop-motion movie, part narrative-driven adventure, and tells the story of the titular Harold - a young lab assistant forced to live his life onboard on a city sized spaceship submerged beneath an alien ocean, 250 years after it fled Earth to preserve the human race. "While most of the ship's inhabitants have reconciled themselves to a life lived aboard the sunken ship," explains Slow Bros, "[lead scientist Jeanne Mareaux] still works tirelessly to find a way for the ship to leave the planet and find a new, dryer home.

Tencent's Timi Studios may be the "world's largest developer" now
Tencent's Timi Studios, the studio behind Call of Duty Mobile and Honor of Kings, generated revenue of $10 billion - £7.23bn - in 2020. Reuters, which broke the story, reports that if true, that makes Timi "the world's largest developer", providing the studio with "a hefty basis for its ambitions to move beyond mobile games and compete directly with global heavyweights developing expensive AAA titles on platforms such as desktop computers, Sony's PlayStation, Nintendo's Switch and Microsoft's Xbox". The news comes after Tencent publicly reported it had generated 156.1 billion yuan (£17 billion) in revenue from its game business, but stopped short of revealing the revenue for each individual studio.

Control developer Remedy working on Alan Wake 2 - report
Last year, Control developer Remedy announced it had signed a two-project publishing deal with Epic Games, and then re-introduced its fan favourite hero Alan Wake via Control's excellent second expansion, which wove the story of both games together as part of Remedy's wider narrative universe. Was Wake being teed up to tease a full sequel to his Xbox 360 cult hit? After Epic's publishing deal was announced - for a big "AAA multiplatform game already in pre-production" and a "new, smaller-scale project set in the same franchise" - fans' hopes were high that Wake would also appear in one of these games.

Amnesia: Rebirth drops darkness, jump scares, and deadly monsters in new Adventure Mode
Frictional Games' desert horror Amnesia: Rebirth has just received a free new Adventure Mode, stripping out the game's life-threatening monster encounters, jump scares, and darkness for those keen to experience its story without fear of fainting dead away. Amnesia: Rebirth - the third game in the series, following on from Frictional's 2010 original and the Chinese-Room-developed A Machine for Pigs - launched last year, taking players on an unsettling adventure across the Algerian desert in the 1930s. Its tale - focusing on protagonist Tasi Trianon as she traverses the hostile expanse, pulling together fragments of her past - earned much praise on release (Eurogamer reviewer Vikki Blake called it an "impressive horror subversion" and a story that "gripped me right up until the credits rolled"), and Rebirth's new Adventure Mode aims to make it more accessible to all.

Doom Eternal wraps up epic Doom Slayer saga in Ancient Gods Part Two DLC tomorrow
Doom Eternal is bringing its increasingly ludicrous saga to a close tomorrow, 18th March, with the launch of its second and final campaign DLC, Ancient Gods Part Two. Tomorrow's DLC doesn't just put a cap on Doom Eternal, however; it also brings an end to the story of the Doom Slayer first seen in 2016's Doom reboot, concluding with an instalment that, in among the usual hellfire and decimated cityscapes, leans hard on the high fantasy. As seen in the trailer below, Doom Slayer's journey to the Dark Lord's stronghold - for one final, epic showdown - takes him to cities nestled among sprawling forests and ice-capped mountain, impossible waterfalls at the end of the world, and there's even time for a dragon or two.

Rockstar officially implementing fan-made fix that massively reduces GTA Online load times
Rockstar officially implementing fan-made fix that massively reduces GTA Online load times
Rockstar has confirmed it'll be releasing an update that officially implements a recent fan-made fix to reduce Grand Theft Auto Online's painfully long load times by up to 70 percent. At the tail-end of February, a programmer going by the name of t0st did a little probing into GTA Online's notoriously protracted load times - ones that can leave players waiting upward of five minutes to start a game - and made a number of fascinating discoveries. The full story has been handily transformed into something approaching layman's terms by Digital Foundry's Will Judd, but the quick version is that a quirk of GTA Online's loading processes saw it performing nearly 2 billion (largely pointless) item checks before each game.
