Zoo Tycoon fans haven't had much to sing about lately but with ¬¬g_id:35924[Planet Zoo]¬¬ it feels like the return of one of the tycoon greats. A successor to Planet Coaster, although sadly not linked from a gameplay standpoint, Planet Zoo offers players the chance to oversee there very own zoo paradise.
¬¬g_id:9339[Red Dead Redemption 2]¬¬ offers an undeniably stunning open-world. Probably one of the finest we've laid eyes on, in fact. But all it takes is one frame rate dip, or one judder, to rip us out of this immersive landscape, and this isn't a game which runs particularly well out of the box. Performance is key for RDR2, and it's what helps elevates the PC version about the 30FPS locked console edition.
Red Dead Redemption 2 has arrived on PC after a year-long wait, although it probably hasn't gone as smoothly as Rockstar was hoping. A ton of people are struggling to run RDR2 at all, while those that have managed to are finding the suggested system requirements may have been a little misleading.
Giddy up pardners, it's Red Dead time. Launch day has been quite the rollercoaster for ¬¬g_id:9339[Red Dead Redemption 2]¬¬ fans on PC. Some have been busy cruising the wilderness atop their fine steeds, while others are left messing around with launchers and config files, desperately trying to find a way in.
In Obsidian we trust, or so the old saying goes. Not content with giving us the sublime Alpha Protocol, they've only gone and outdone Fallout with The Outer Worlds, a planet-hopping sci-fi romp with humour to spare. It's a joyous little thing and it also happens to run really rather well too, at least on our test rig.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's beta test is rattling away right now on PC, offering up a bunch of maps to modes to play around with ahead of next month's launch. We've been busy messing around with it, primarily because we were very interested to see how Infinity Ward's new game engine holds up. The answer, unsurprisingly, is 'very well'.
Borderlands 3, one of the biggest launches of the year, has arrived today, although it's been far from plain sailing. There have been reports of performance struggles, DirectX 12 woes, and all sorts of issues on top of that pesky Epic Games Store exclusivity which will put a few off.
It's time to locust-hunting, chums. Gears 5 is now out on PC, available through both the Windows Store and, amazingly, Steam! The PC version of Gears 5 is the place to be if you want the best performance around, paired with proper keyboard and mouse support.
Fresh from shifting a mighty impressive 15 million copies of Wildlands, Ubisoft's Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon series is back. The Ghost Recon Breakpoint closed beta test is running this weekend, open to those who pre-order the game as well a select few who've been sent invites. It's our best opportunity yet to get hands on with GR: Breakpoint and see how both the game and its performance are shaking up in the run-up to its October 4th launch.
Remedy's Control has arrived today, arguably setting a new benchmark for PC graphics tech. It's the sort eyeball massaging we haven't seen since the Crysis days. But, such graphical fidelity doesn't come without a prohibitive performance cost. Control is a very demanding PC game and will require high-end graphics hardware in order to run smoothly. In particular, you will need a top-end GPU to play Control at high resolutions.
It's not often we get a new graphical behemoth these days, but Remedy's Control ticks all the boxes we hope for from a graphical powerhouse. Control comes packing extensive real-time ray-tracing support, truly flexing the muscles of the Nvidia GeForce RTX video cards.
