The Founder's Alpha will run until August 30th and developer Phoenix Labs also announced that the Closed Beta will immediately follow it, starting on September 1st. When the Closed Beta kicks off, purchasers of the other two levels of Founder's Packs (Slayer at $40 and Hero at $70) will be able to join the testing. (Note: we were mistaken in our previous news post that all Founders would receive access to the Founder's Alpha.) Though obvious, it bears repeating that the Founder's Alpha and Closed Beta are early access/preview versions of the game, meaning that some content will be missing or limited and there will be bugs.

Next Rainbow 6 Siege DLC is Around the CornerJason Love

Things have been relatively quiet these past few months as the development team focused on addressing and fixing many of the stability and balancing issues the community has been reporting for the past couple years, along with implementing a few quality of life improvements. One of those came with the most recent title update, which added dedicated Terrorist Hunt servers so you and your friends can keep playing even if Frank's Internet dies for the 15th time. (GET IT TOGETHER, FRANK!)

If you're never heard of the title before and wondering "just what is this thing," it's ok, you're not alone. Without a doubt, the big appeal to Spintires was the mud physics that could trap your vehicle in a mire of Siberian swamp. Sure, you ostensibly had the task of going around picking up lumber and delivering to various places around the map, but that's not why people played itSpintires: MudRunner is more of the same, but with a few new features, like an open-world/sandbox map, a new Challenge mode, new vehicles, and improved graphics.

We've known that Absolver would support three players online in some kind of PvE area for a little while, and the devs have gone into a little more detail about how that happens. There's a little bit of a Journey element to this, where you'll randomly come across other players as you explore the ruined world of the Aslan Empire. Per Pierre Tarno, Creative Director at Sloclap:

“We’re very excited about Crackdown 3, and so are many fans, and so it’s a difficult call to move the release date, However, we want to make sure to deliver the right game, with the right quality, and at the right time. Crackdown 3 is a hugely ambitious game and we want to ensure we deliver the right experiences all the way through every part of the game, whether that’s campaign, co-op multiplayer or our competitive multiplayer mode, Wrecking Zone. Getting the balance right between the three modes is important, and we are going to take the extra development time to ensure that. Gamers can expect Crackdown 3 in Spring of 2018.”

Provided no further delays crop up, it'll hit digital shelves on December 7th of this year.  With that in mind, THQ Nordic has put out a brand new cinematic trailer to ensure the game will be fresh in our minds as we enter the busy end-of-year release window.  Go ahead, take a peek:

The news came via a Dev Diary video last week as Executive Producer Zak Phelps and Creative Director Darren Sugg addressed the feedback they've received about game crashes across all platforms. The most recent series of patches, which have just about dropped daily since last Friday, have all been aimed at fixing those crashes and improving stability. Around the 3:15 mark they bust out the Survival mode news and it definitely sounds promising. The missions I've encountered thus far have largely been a variation of defending a single point for a set period of time, so having something with this sort of unique challenge where players will have to maintain a defense over the course of several in-game days could be fun. No specific dates are given for this big update, but they hope to get it out "end of August/early September."

LEGO Worlds is getting a fresh batch of free downloadable content, which the developer is calling "Jungle Explorers".  It's being released piecemeal on every Thursday in August, meaning the first two portions (the Jungle Camp and Jungle Temple Ruin) are already available.  Check out the content trailer below:

Outside of the trailer this past March and the initial release announcement at last year's E3, we haven't heard too much about the game. The title's description and footage definitely paints a picture of this being a PAYDAY style shooter but set in World War II Nazi Germany instead of modern day bank heists. I mean, hey, I can definitely get behind the premise, but it would also be cool to see a little more of the game in action. Hopefully developer Lion Game Lion will have something new to show off before RAID: World WAR II arrives next month.

The classic platforming Sonic is back today with the release of Sonic Mania on the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One (PC is delayed until the 29th). To celebrate the hedgehog's return, which thus far has been met with fair praise, check out the game's opening animation and maybe feel a little bit of nostalgia/excitement...

What exactly is Aces of Seafood? It's a game where you lead (and breed) a school of sea creatures. Everything is fair game - from fish to lobsters, even hermit crabs and submarines. Wait, what? Oh yeah - you breed submarines.

The Escapists series began in 2014 as a Steam early access game before being completed a year later in 2015 and then made its way to consoles soon after, giving fans the underdog story—the one where the little indie game worked through early access, gained critical recognition, and eventually got a promising sequel—that we all love. Although the original Escapists was released without any multiplayer, the sequel not only features a versus mode, but both online and local drop-in/ drop-out co-op that allows for up to 4 players, which is an incredibly exciting improvement for any game series.
