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!)

Keep on Mudding with Spintires: MudRunnerJason Love

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’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.”

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...

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.

They aim to continue this tradition in October with the "Monsters" DLC.  In it, players will travel to the aptly named Monster Town, "a peculiar place full of scary quests, terrifying creatures, haunted houses, and ghastly vehicles sure to send chills down players’ spines."  I gotta admit, I don't think I've ever had LEGOs send chills down my spine, but I guess I can't discount the possibility.

The demo went live this past Friday and can be accessed on the PSN store or Microsoft store if you navigate to the Ghost Recon Wildlands page. The five hour trial allows you to fully explore as much of Bolivia as you can before that timer expires. You're also free to team up with whomever you want regardless if they own the full game or not, and all of your progress in the trial will also carry over. It's worth noting that even though the trial is limited, you're basically downloading the full game. That's good news if you like what you see and want to buy it, but bad news if a 60 Gb download is too much. There's a trial FAQ over on the website that covers all the pertinent details.

The streets of London are overrun with the living dead and its up to four survivors - Teller, Mick ‘The Brick’, Rei, and Eddie - to take out as many of them as possible. While the action is very side-scrolling brawler focused, nDreams has described the combat as "free-form" so you can chain moves together. The other big feature here is that the title supports VR players for both the PC (Rift and Vive) and PlayStation 4 versions (PSVR), as well as combo co-op. So, if you and your buddy are playing on the couch together, you could join another friend who's using the PSVR. The player wearing the VR headset is able to get a unique view of the action and can move the camera around to get a better look at what's ahead or crawling up behind you.
