“doom proved to be a confident, clever statement”

In an era where singleplayer shooters have fallen out of fashion, id Software’s return to Doomproved to be a confident, clever statement about what an FPS can be. The 2016 release was arguably the best shooter of the decade, using forward momentum to replicate the frenetic pace of the ’90s classics. By all accounts Doom Eternallooks to focus in on everything that made its predecessor great. Head to p42 to read Andy’s bloody report. In a classic case of counter-programming, this issue we also celebrate The Sims, a series that’s excelled at letting every kind of player tell the stories that interest them. Enjoy the issue!

aliens vs eve online

Attacking out of nowhere, a non-player faction called the Drifters has invaded New Eden, the galaxy where EVE Online takes place. The Borg-like aliens laid siege to starbases and destroyed more than 5,000 player ships, amounting to hundreds of billions of ISK, EVE’s in-game currency. The major player-led alliances scrambled to respond, but not before a huge amount of damage was done – and now they’re pissed. IT WAS AN ATTEMPT TO SHAKE NEW EDEN UP IN AN EXCITING WAY What was intended as an attempt to inject some life into EVE’s universe served mainly as an annoyance for the large groups of players who call New Eden home. “The lack of forewarning that normally precludes an event like this took a lot of the playerbase by surprise,” TEST Alliance fleet commander…

highs & lows

HIGHS Keanu Reeves His appearance in the game increases the chances of a Cyberpunk 2077 movie says creator Mike Pondsmith. We’re into that.

Mordhau This medieval brawler is superb, but the community is incredibly toxic, which the developer is doing a bad job of dealing with. Gabe Newell We love you, Gabe, but please stop making Half-Life 3 jokes. The latest was at the launch of Valve’s new VR thing, Index. Borderlands 3 The despicable Claptrap being at the forefront of the game’s current marketing push is too much.…

the spy

As truth becomes increasingly improbable, The Spy has difficulty distinguishing between well-founded rumour and the fanciful thoughts that naturally occur in the mind just two days before a magazine deadline. Elden Ring, for instance, might be a name generated by a neural network trained come to up with Tolkien titles forever. Or equally, it could be the next FromSoftware game. Its world will be vast and navigated by horse, but The Spy has read enough reports to expect Shadow of the Colossus rather than The Witcher 3. Uncharacteristically, it appears George RR Martin has finished providing its “overarching mythos”. But The Spy swears that, with a listening device held flat against the monitor, you can still hear him playing for time in the E3 trailer, “The Elden Ring, shattered by someone or…
