Gorgeous Blade Runner-esque delivery thriller Cloudpunk gets first-person cockpit view
Gorgeous Blade Runner-esque delivery thriller Cloudpunk gets first-person cockpit view
Developer Ion Lands' glorious Blade Runner-esque delivery thriller Cloudpunk is already an absolute joy to meander around, thanks to its gorgeously designed open-world playground - a vast rain-slicked sci-fi metropolis shrouded in endless night - but, from today, PC players can admire its neon-streaked, voxel-based splendour while staring out the window of their flying HOVA cars, thanks to a new first-person cockpit update. Cloudpunk, if you've not yet had the pleasure, casts players as protagonist Rania as she attempts to survive her first 24 hours in the perpetually sodden city of Nivalis, completing jobs - primarily by zipping back and forth through the night sky, ferrying packages and passengers around the place - at the behest of illicit delivery company Cloudpunk. Before long Rania and Cloudpunk's immensely likeable cast of characters - including her loyal AI companion dog Camus - finds themselves embroiled in suitably intriguing mystery, and while the ensuing adventure might be a little slight (there's not much to do in the city outside of the main plot), careening nippily around that breathtaking cityscape is a constant delight.

Life is Strange dev's psychological thriller Twin Mirror out in December
Dontnod, the developer behind the acclaimed likes of Life is Strange and Tell Me Why, will be bringing its latest narrative adventure, Twin Mirror, to Xbox One, PS4, and PC on 1st December. Twin Mirror tells the story of former investigative journalist Sam Higgs as he returns home to the small town of Basswood, West Virginia, following the death of a friend. What follows is a psychological thriller that looks to be very much in the vein of Dontnod's numerous other picturesque-locale-gone-freaky efforts, with the exploratory bits now married to a system where Sam - and his "more emphatic and social" alter-ego Double - are able to utilise his strikingly designed "mind palace", revisiting the past and searching for clues.

Gorgeous Blade Runner-esque delivery thriller Cloudpunk comes to consoles in October
Developer Ion Lands' gorgeous delivery driving neo-noir thriller Cloudpunk is currently revving its engine (or whatever it is that futuristic flying cars use to get about the place) and readying to swerve onto Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Switch on 15th October. Cloudpunk released on PC earlier this year, and immediately drew attention for its stunningly designed open-world playground, a vast rain-slicked metropolis shrouded in endless night and bathed in blazing neon that most definitely wouldn't look out of place in Blade Runner. The city, Nivalis, is the very recent home of protagonist Rania, and it's up to players to whiz around the voxel world in her nippy flying HOVA car in a bid to complete jobs and survive her first night working for illicit delivery company Cloudpunk.
