Call of Duty: Modern Warfare launches this week on PC, and pre-loads for Infinity Ward’s soft reboot are already underway. The developers have also provided a full list of release times for the game. It’ll be a single global launch – so no need to think about VPNing yourself into New Zealand or anything of the like – but that does mean you’re going to be playing Modern Warfare at a different time depending on where you are in the world.

Riot Games has reclaimed its ‘s’ in a big way by announcing a massive spread of new games last week.

WWE 2K20 is out now, and that means that we finally get the perverse pleasure of watching a whole bunch of ridiculous glitch videos showcasing all the possible ways that a wrestler can get mangled. 2K20 is no disappointment in that regard – but, uh, it seems to be disappointing in basically every other respect.
As we established in an earlier story, Age of Wonders is a 4X series now. It’s official. But it wasn’t always so – the Paradox-published strategy series “started off as a war game with empire building,” according to game director Lennart Sas.
League of Legends might just be the biggest game in the world – at the very least, it’s in the conversation among the industry’s most astronomical titans.

Multi-GPU performance could be the Intel Xe graphics cards’ killer feature. Its software engineers are currently hard at work getting both integrated processor graphics and discrete Xe GPU working together.
The Outer Worlds – no not Wilds, Worlds, the open world RPG Fallout-like (I’m coining the term) – is heading towards its October 25 release date. Fans and critics alike have been watching and waiting to see if the game is everything it promised to be, and now that the embargo has lifted, we’ve got a round up of what critics think.
Nvidia is aiming for 1080p/60fps in Minecraft RTX with an RTX 2060, says a spokesperson for the company. Minecraft is due an RTX update next year, at which point we’ll see a plethora of ray-traced effects switched on in-game including lighting, reflections, shadows, and refractions. But neither Mojang or Nvidia has told us just how much silicon firepower we’ll need for this task – until now.
There have been a few indications these past few months that EA will be returning to Steam. Although it’s very unlikely that newer titles will be making their way to the storefront, it looks as if older releases like Dragon Age 2 and The Saboteur could be showing their faces.
