Games Workshop has announced Warhammer The Old World, an upcoming return to the Fantasy Battle-era of the tabletop game.
We only occasionally dabble in tabletop gaming news here on Eurogamer (if you're after an expert view of the scene - and a lot of fun to boot - check out our friends over at Dicebreaker). But I can't help but view this piece of news through a video game lens.
For the uninitiated, back in 2015, Games Workshop destroyed Warhammer's much-loved Old World and replaced the Warhammer: The Game of Fantasy Battles tabletop with the Age of Sigmar. This was a resounding success in tabletop land, and Warhammer hasn't looked back since.
Grinding Gear Games has announced Path of Exile Mobile.
The announcement video, below, is clearly mindful of Blizzard's disastrous announcement of Diablo Immortal - and even has a little fun with it.
Grinding Gear's video begins with technical director and co-founder Jonathan Rodgers saying there's a lot of "garbage" in mobile games today, but he points out that it was a similar sentiment about PC free-to-play when the studio launched action role-playing game Path of Exile back in 2013.
The much-loved Factorio finally has a 1.0 release date: 25th September 2020.
The date was revealed in a post by Prague-based studio Wube Software, which said development on the game "is taking way too long".
Factorio, an engineer simulator about building and creating automated factories to produce items in a 2D world, launched on Steam as an early access title in February 2016 and quickly met with a very positive reception. But development began back in 2012. It'll hit 1.0 eight years later.
2K has apologised after a social media hack of its various accounts was used to post racist comments.
Yesterday evening, 2K lost control of a raft of its social media accounts across Twitter and Facebook, including the official pages for Borderlands, WWE and Civilization.
During the hack, the official accounts were used to post a number of offensive messages. The Facebook page for WWE 2K saw its profile picture changed to the logo for AEW Wrestling, and its cover image changed to a picture of wrestler Chris Benoit.
The action role-playing game world is hotting up: hot on the heels of Blizzard's announcement of Diablo 4 comes the confirmation of Path of Exile 2.
Path of Exile 2, from Grinding Gear Games, was announced during ExileCon in New Zealand and includes a new seven-act campaign, a new skill gem system, new ascendancy classes and shapeshifting. The new campaign is available alongside the original Path of Exile 1 campaign, and both storylines lead into the same shared Atlas endgame.
The announcement video, below, gives you an idea of the graphical bump. Of note: the character select mechanic is to pick someone from a handful of people who are about to be hanged. Your pick escapes with their life, while the others die.
