Team17, DevM Games and SMG Studio have released a new tropical-themed expansion for their couch co-op multiplayer game, Moving Out.
The expansion features a new selection of suitably tropical-themed characters to use while tackling the game’s physics-based challenges, including Tooki the toucan, Coco the coconut, Clawdius the crab, and Gilly the fish.
Also arriving alongside the paid expansion is a free Moving In update that’s coming to all platforms having first launched last month on Amazon Luna. The free update sees the base game’s levels reworked, with players having to unpack a removal van to place furniture and other household items in the correct locations as quickly as possible.
The Movers In Paradise expansion is available to download now on Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC for £5.99/€7.49/$7.49.

Sony have shared some tentative details about their “next-generation VR system” that’s coming to the PS5 at some point in the next few years.
It sounds like the Move controllers utilised by the original PS VR are no more, with the new headset said to be getting its own “future-proof” VR controller that will incorporate some of the features found in the PS5’s DualSense pad while also maintaining a focus on “great ergonomics.”
While developers are already said to be working on new games for Sony’s next VR system, the blog, which you can read in full, goes on to confirm that the headset will not be launching this year, though more details will be shared at some point in the future.
So, while it’s not the full, wireless reveal I boldly predicted earlier in the year, there’s still a chance we’ll get to see more on Sony’s latest foray into VR later in the year.
Let us know your thoughts on the next PS VR below or in the forums.

Square Enix have revealed the release date for the next-gen upgrade of Marvel’s Avengers, as well as sharing more details on the game’s next character DLC, Hawkeye.
Saves and game progress will transfer between platforms, and cross-gen play will still be supported between old and new generations of consoles.
The upgrade is free for players who own the PS4 or Xbox One versions of the game, but only when upgrading to the corresponding generation (PS4 to PS5, for example).
The upgrade also won’t work if you own the physical copy of the game on Xbox One or PS4 and are trying to then upgrade to Xbox Series S or PS5 Digital Edition console, however, due to the latter pairs' lack of disc drives, though owners of the digital versions will still be eligible for it.
Also arriving the same day as the next-gen upgrade is Clint Barton, aka, Hawkeye, the latest playable character being added to the game’s roster of superheroes.
Operation: Hawkeye – Future Imperfect, will be available for free across all platforms and includes new story content, Hawkeye himself, and a new villain called Maestro, who’s described as “a version of Hulk with Bruce Banner’s brains and the Hulk’s strengths and abilities, now driven mad in an apocalyptic future.”
Are you looking forward to the new content and next-gen upgrade? Let us know below.

EA have shared further details on the upcoming Mass Effect Legendary Edition, a remaster of BioWare's original series that allows players to “relive the legend of Commander Shepard in 4K Ultra HD with HDR."
As you might expect, the original game, which launched back in 2007, has seen the most drastic visual overhaul, with locations such as Eden Prime, Ilos and Feros benefitting from “added detail and depth.”
Some of the game’s older mechanics have also been revamped, including the UI and Mako handling. Combat and exploration have been tweaked with improved aiming, squad controls and behaviour helping to “modernize” the experience.
As well as the visual and gameplay updates, the game comes with more than 40 previously released DLC packs, including story expansions, weapons and cosmetic items.
Mass Effect Legendary Edition is out 14 May on Xbox One, PS4 and PC via Origin and Steam. It’ll also be playable on Xbox Series X|S and PS5 via backwards compatibility.
