Wildlands Open Beta Available for Pre-load

One of the many welcoming trends of modern gaming (in my opinion, at least) is the inclusion of the open beta. Interested in an upcoming title? What better way to determine whether you should part from your hard earned cash than to test drive a portion of the game for free? It certainly beats buying a game based on a few random screenshots plastered on the back of the box.

It's time to crash a robot doomsday party with Flying Oak Games' new rogue-lite NeuroVoider. Play as one of four human brains left after the robots have annihilated humanity, and have up to three friends join you for cooperative carnage.

If you stumbled by the ID@Xbox booth in Microsoft's section of E3 this year, you might have gotten a pixelated eyeful of Gunscape. You might have thought it was Minecraft running on an Xbox One, or Doom, which had somehow been sucked through a time vortex into modern day.

For example, Blue Estate, a rail-shooter, just released on the Playstation 4. That's right! A rail-shooter. I harbor no ill will against the genre, but discovering they are still being made is like finding out your neighbor just bought a new brontosaurus.
