It’s been one week since the release of The Council - Episode 4: Burning Bridges. We would like to thank you, at first, for all your support and feedback.

  • Characters will no longer be resurrect by a bug.

PC Only

  • Players that were previously unable to generate save files and log files on specific setups are now able to create these files. These files will not work with Steam Cloud Saves.

Welcome back to the devblogs for Space Hulk: Tactics, today we’ll be talking about the Map Editor. Far from a tool for only the most creative portion of the playerbase, we consider this a core pillar of the Space Hulk experience, and we’ve designed it in such a way to be easy to use for everyone.

The reason for this is how influential the ease of making your own missions was on the Space Hulk boardgame. It is still played by a dedicated fanbase today, after almost 30 years since the 1989 release, in part because of the clip-together nature of the terrain pieces that came with it. Creating your own missions is as easy as adding an objective to your idea for a map, and we’ve embraced that completely with the Mission Editor.

First you pick an environment, Imperial, Ork, or Eldar. Each of these comes with its own unique interactive elements - gun turrets on Imperial maps, for example, or explosive barrels on Ork ships - so choose wisely based on what you wish to create. However, if you decide to change, you can do so at any time, without losing any features of your map. Any unique elements from another tileset are simply flagged as needing to be removed or replace.

Then you can start building, snapping rooms together quickly and easily from our huge selection. There is a near-infinite number of combinations of rooms, doors, consoles, interactive elements, dozens of objectives, spawn points, and so on. Each room also has several different tilesets per environment, so you can perfect the look of your map as well as the design.

Applying objectives to a map is as simple as selecting one and then placing the required interactables - extraction points, key consoles, collectable servo skulls, to name a few. There are twenty objectives to choose from, which combined with map layouts and how they change the playstyle of the map (sometimes, for example, the Genestealers may be on the defensive) it opens up a ridiculously large number of options.

Once you have a prototype, you can jump into playing it against the AI right from within the editor, and once you quit you’ll be right back on the edit screen, able to tweak elements quickly and easily. First-person mode is also supported within the editor, so you can examine your map on a more personal level, and pick the perfect tileset.

Once your map is ready to go it can be shared online and downloaded by other players. They can rate maps after a match, as well as search for maps by name, creator name, or use filters to sort through official and unofficial maps.

During the pre-order beta we’re running a mapping competition, which you can read about the details for here. Included in the prize is a copy of the latest edition of the Space Hulk boardgame, as well as various other goodies. We’re always on the lookout for particularly amazing maps to highlight as well, and it’s possible some of the best from the beta will be integrated into the official map pool for release.

The Space Hulk: Tactics release is just a couple of weeks away on October 9th. You can play in the pre-order beta right now by grabbing the game on Steam.

Vampyr: Difficulty modes update out next week on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC

DONTNOD Entertainment’s narrative-driven action-RPG Vampyr continues to receive ongoing support, as the difficulty modes update releases next week, September 26, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. There’s never been a better time for players to sink their teeth in, as a special discount on Steam for Vampyr is now live in celebration of the Focus Home Publisher’s weekend.

Tuesday’s update includes two new game difficulty modes which add further replayability for existing players, and more options for those who haven’t yet sunk their teeth into this dark adventure through 1918 London.

Story Mode de-emphasizes combat, placing a greater focus on narrative so players can enjoy Dr. Jonathan Reid’s journey with less challenging gameplay. On the other end of the scale, Hard Mode makes combat much more difficult. Players will receive less experience from killing enemies too, forcing them to rely even more on embracing citizens to grow in power. Upon starting a new game, players will be given the option to choose from these two new modes or a third ‘Normal Mode’ if they wish to play the original Vampyr experience.

In addition to the new difficulty modes, the upcoming update introduces a host of optimization tweaks and fixes. Nvidia Ansel will also be made available for PC, which allows players to capture beautiful in-game screenshots, viewing and sharing them in 3D on mobile phone, PC or VR Headset. View the full patchnotes here.

Walk the path of madness in Call of Cthulhu’s latest gameplay trailer!

Youtube Video

Call of Cthulhu, the official videogame adaptation of Chaosium’s tabletop RPG, will release October 30 on PlayStation 4, XBOX One and PC. Today, we invite players to tread further down the path of madness in this new Gameplay Trailer, as the Darkwater investigation begins to spiral out of control in the midst of unsettling conspiracies, bizarre cults and even the Old Ones themselves.

In Private Investigator Edward Pierce's quest to unveil the truth, players will need to rely on a variety of upgradeable Skills to escape the clutches of madness and death. The Spot Hidden and Investigation skill paths let players uncover more clues and draw more meaningful conclusions, unlocking more topics to question in dialogues. Convincing the distrustful locals of Darkwater to reveal what they know will require proficiency in Eloquence and Psychology. Pierce's Strength skill may also come in handy for when brute force is necessary, or to intimidate impressionable people into offering whatever they’re hiding. Expertise in Medicine and Occultism, improved only through discovering unique books and artifacts throughout the investigation, may grant additional insight – but knowledge can be a curse in Call of Cthulhu. The more aware Pierce is made of the horrors that dwell beyond the fabrics of reality, the more he will fall to insanity, impeding his ability to draw logical conclusions.

Pierce is but a mortal man, with few allies in a remote, unfriendly environment. Whether outnumbered by mortal adversaries or facing foes whose mere existence is beyond human comprehension, offering physical resistance is usually not an option. Making the most of Pierce’s extensive set of skills, along with subterfuge and stealth, is paramount… though escaping the gaze of the Great Dreamer may ultimately prove futile.

Call of Cthulhu releases for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on October 30. Digital and retail preorders are available on PC and consoles.
