  • Review Generation Zero - A Woeful Open World Ordeal Stuck in the Past

    Last gen design

    Despite flying under most people’s radars, Generation Zero is actually a fairly major fall from grace. From developer Avalanche Studios, its latest open world foray is in stark contrast to the explosive, experimental, and action-packed nature of Just Cause 4's Solís. Instead, the studio’s take on a 1980s Sweden ravaged by an...

  • News Oh Yeah, Generation Zero Is Out on PS4 Next Week

    Have a launch trailer

    Hands up: how many of you remembered Generation Zero is due before the month is out? This open world, co-op FPS from Avalanche Studios has been flying way below the radar, but it's set for release on 26th March. To celebrate the imminent launch, publisher THQ Nordic has posted a new trailer, which you can see above. Described...

  • News THQ Nordic Issues Apology for Asinine AMA with 8chan

    Publisher regrets ridiculous incident

    It’s been almost a week since THQ Nordic bafflingly hosted an AMA on ethically questionable website 8chan, prompting an unprecedented backlash due to the forum's connections with racism, hate speech, and, unthinkably, child pornography. The organisation apologised at the time, claiming that it was unaware of...






  • News Bag Bargains with Humble THQ Nordic Bundle

    An impressive 11 games for a few quid

    THQ Nordic is back with another Humble Bundle bonanza, this time handing out around 11 games for a few measly quid. Even better is that this offer can be used with both North American and European accounts, so you don’t even have to faff around if you’re in the Old World. Among the titles available are...

  • News THQ Nordic Won't Release Wreckfest Until It Loves Playing It

    Another one bites the dust

    Wreckfest has broken down and been taken back to Bugbear’s workshop, where it will remain for repairs into 2019. The title – which was due out on 20th November – has been delayed on the PlayStation 4 by THQ Nordic, as the publisher works to get the destructive racer up to scratch on Sony’s system. The PC version...

  • News THQ Nordic Has Post-Release Plans for Darksiders III

    Are you Furious?

    Poor ol’ Darksiders III isn’t getting a fat lot of media attention at the moment – even though it’s due out, like, next month. There is news of DLC on the way, however, featuring “new playable areas, new challenges, puzzles, items, and enemies”. Hurrah. The first pack, unimaginatively named The Crucible, will see Fury...

  • News Darksiders III Turns Fury Purple for Force Trailer

    Purple pain

    Darksiders III heroine Fury has turned a shade of purple for this new trailer, as publisher THQ Nordic begins to introduce the various forms of the apocalyptic horsewoman. “Fury’s form evolves throughout the game and with it, her powers and weaponry,” the press release reads. “Her so-called Hollows are powers bestowed upon her by...





  • Guide Metro: Exodus - Everything We Know So Far

    Open world, release date,

    We've known about Metro: Exodus for some time, but we learned a ton of new information during Microsoft's E3 2018 press conference. We learned the official release date, how it will differ from the previous two entries, and some plot details. In this guide, we'll round up everything there is to know about...

  • News Red Faction Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered Returns to the Red Planet on 3rd July


    THQ Nordic’s re-Mars-tered edition of explosive PlayStation 3 open worlder Red Faction Guerrilla will drive its little space buggy to the PlayStation 4 from 3rd July.

  • News THQ Nordic Is Skipping E3 2018 for the World Cup

    Who can blame them?

    E3 2018 and the FIFA World Cup take place in very close proximity to each other this year, and because of that, the Austrian-based company THQ Nordic are snubbing the Los Angeles show floor for the beer gardens of Vienna this time around as they watch the World Cup in Russia from a safe distance.  Because of that, we'll get...

    Review Rad Rodgers

    Totally rad. Not

    Another week, another Kickstarter game makes the leap from PC to PlayStation 4. This time around it’s Rad Rodgers, a “spiritual successor” to those side scrolling platformers that graced the PC back in the nineties, such as Commander Keen and Jazz Jackrabbit. Nostalgia is definitely the main aim here, and for good or bad it...

  • News New BioMutant Video Gives a Brief Glimpse at Gameplay


    THQ Nordic has just uploaded a new teaser for the unique BioMutant. Still scheduled for release this year, we've not heard too much about the title as yet, but this new video gives us a little sneak peek. It's not long at 90 seconds, but we get a decent look at some different player characters, the combat, and the diverse environments...


  • News Red Faction: Guerrilla Is Looking to Level PS4


    Red Faction: Guerrilla, the entertaining open world destruction simulation, appears to be heading to the PlayStation 4 – well, that’s if various GameStop listings are accurate. The title popped up on the websites of multiple European branches, with no release date attached. THQ Nordic has kept itself busy remastering various products in its...

  • News Foul-Mouthed Platformer Rad Rodgers Heading to PS4


    THQ Nordic isn't done announcing new projects just yet. The latest game the publisher has revealed is a console release of Rad Rodgers, a Kickstarted platformer featuring the titular young boy and his cursing robot companion. The game launches on PS4 21st February. The game is a 2D platformer with shooter elements set in what appears to...

  • News de Blob 2 Brings Even More Colour to PS4 Next Month

    Poor man's Splatoon 2

    THQ Nordic has today announced that it will be releasing de Blob 2 on PS4, and we won't have to wait very long. The port will be released on 27th February. This follows the re-release of the original game, which we had fun revisiting back in November. The publisher details the game in a press release, but you probably know...

  • News MX vs. ATV Goes All Out on 27th March

    Review Black Mirror

    A Scottish haunting

    Before Charlie Brooker came onto the scene, Black Mirror was more commonly known as a series of point-and-click adventure games released on the PC in the mid-2000s. Its initial three entries were fairly well received, and after a seven year absence, the name is back with a re-imagining of its story, themes, and a mix-up in the...

    Review de Blob

    Poor man's Splatoon?

    Nine years after its appearance on the Wii, de Blob has rolled onto the PlayStation 4. While certainly an unexpected port, it isn’t an unwelcome one. This colourful platformer was a delightfully whimsical adventure nearly a decade ago, with a simple concept that exuded fun and creativity. Pleasingly, this holds true today...

  • News We Gave ELEX a 4/10, But We'll Admit That Its Accolades Trailer Is Pretty Great


    You know what's really cool about opinions? You don't necessarily have to share them with other people. Sadly, this is a fact of life that the internet gets wrong all too often, so it's actually quite refreshing to see THQ Nordic having a laugh with its accolades trailer for ELEX. The open world role-playing game launched last month on...



  • News Donate to Charity and Get 15 PS4 Games for Pocket Change

    Not a bad deal

    THQ Nordic has brought back its Humble Bundle from earlier in the year, meaning that you can get up to 15 PlayStation 4 games for $15, which is a bargain really. Not all of the games are great, but you do get both Darksiders titles, as well as a few PS2 Classics like Red Faction and both Destroy All Humans! instalments. If you’re...

  • News BioMutant's Overly Talkative Narrator Can Be Toned Down

    Good to hear

    BioMutant, the unique looking action role-playing game that was revealed at Gamescom last month, looked quite promising in its first gameplay footage. However, one aspect that we weren't all that keen on was the narration. We don't mind a bit of commentary here and there, but this was the kind of thing that'd probably drive you mad...




  • News Open World PS4 RPG ELEX Gets a New Gameplay Trailer


    Last week, we wrote about the reappearance of ELEX, an open world role-playing title that's coming to PlayStation 4 in October. Its cinematic trailer made an interesting case, and now, you can get a glimpse of the game in action thanks to its new gameplay video. We don't like judging titles by their trailers, but the release is looking...

    Review This Is the Police

    911 is not a joke

    Weappy Games' strategy-cum-noir adventure This Is the Police has you inhabit the day-to-day drudgery of retiring police chief Jack Boyd, grinding out his last 180 days on the force and trying to keep things running smoothly for the city of Freeburg's corrupt mayor. Dogged by allegations of corruption and a career full of regret, we...

  • News Sine Mora EX Braves Bullet Hell on PS4 This Summer


    Who remembers Sine Mora, then? It was billed as a big deal once upon a time, releasing on the PlayStation 3 and Vita with input from Suda51 if our memory is correct. Anyway, it kinda came and went but still has a cult following in some circles, and now THQ Nordic has announced that an extended version will release on the PlayStation 4 this...

    Review Darksiders: Warmastered Edition

    The art of war

    It's weird to think that since Darksiders was released in 2010, Vigil Games disbanded, THQ went bankrupt, and Nordic Games acquired the franchise. Not only that, but it has even reincorporated under the name THQ Nordic and overseen remasterings of both games. So while ex-Vigil Games employees are scattered around the place with...

  • News Darksiders Will Be Remastered in 4K Resolution on PS4 Pro

    Dark side of the moon

    Darksiders: Warmastered Edition may have the worst name this side of Darksiders 2: Deathinitive Edition, but at least it isn't cutting any corners. Newly named publisher THQ Nordic has confirmed that the remaster will run at 1080p on the standard PlayStation 4 and will be enhanced with 4K support on the PS4 Pro. There's a...
