The Best Open Worlds in Video Games

Video Games offer their players boundless escapism, and while that’s sometimes in the form of a really compelling linear story, there’s a special place in our hearts for a big open world you can easily get lost in. To that end, we’ve put together a list of our favorite open worlds in gaming. It’s worth noting that this isn’t a list of IGN’s Best Open-World Games™, but rather our favorite worlds in and of themselves - whether they’re made up of miles of untamed wilderness,...

Olija, a 2D action-adventure centred around a mystical harpoon, has been announced for a Fall 2020 release on PC and Nintendo Switch.

Fall Guys Gets August Release Date

Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout will arrive for PS4 and PC on August 4. Announced at Devolver Direct, we got another look at the neon-hued 60-player minigame battler, and saw how big its selection of un lockable costumes and wild events would be. Pre-order the game on Steam, and you'll also get an exclusive Gordon Freeman Half-Life outfit (complete with the now weirdly fashionable headcrab hat).

Destiny 2: Has a Huge PVP Population, but Matchmaking Needs Modernization

Over the July 4th weekend, Destiny 2 had a massive number of active players in its PVP modes, specifically Iron Banner. Even on the last day of the event, 15% of everybody playing were in Iron Banner, and on July 1st, 728k of the total 1.18 million players were enjoying PVP.  That's twice the amount of people playing Strikes, Nightfall, Raids, or Gambit. For comparison, if we look back at July of 2019, the PVP population was 289k, less than half of what it is today.

Cheetah Explained: Who Is the Wonder Woman 1984 Villain?

Wonder Woman 1984 will see the return of Gal Gadot's super-heroine, and joining her will be Kristen Wiig as Barbara Ann Minerva, aka Cheetah, one of Wonder Woman's oldest and most nefarious foes. As of now, it remains unclear exactly how Wiig's character will become Cheetah in the film, or even if she will be the main villain in the film, given that Pedro Pascal is also co-starring as DC Comics bad guy Maxwell Lord. Now that we've gotten our first look at Wiig in her full Cheetah costume,...

The Evolution of Assassin’s Creed: From the Holy Land to Valhalla

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, the upcoming twelfth (core) entry in Ubisoft’s historical murder series, is set to be a very different experience than the first game was in 2007.

Assassin’s Creed has evolved, but Valhalla is just the latest in a long bloodline of ancestors that have...
