Publisher Dotemu (Streets of Rage 4) and developer Tribute Games have announced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge for PC and consoles.
While combat is said to have its foundations set in “classic brawling mechanics,” Michalangelo, Donatello, Leonardo and Raphael will each have their own unique skills and maneuvers. It also sounds like players will be able to utilise vehicles in some way.
In addition to varying types of Foot Clan, players will be going up against baddies ranging from Triceraton Warriors and Rock Troops to the iconic Bebop, Rocksteady and Shredder.
Platform details and a TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge release date have yet to be announced, with the game only confirmed to be coming to PC (via Steam) and consoles right now.

California-based Cold Iron Studios have unveiled their debut title, Aliens: Fireteam, a cooperative third-person shooter set within the Alien universe.
There are five classes to choose from - Gunner, Demolisher, Technician, Doc and Recon – and more than 30 weapons available (including the iconic Pulse Rifle and Smart Gun) which can be further modified with attachments.
An “innovative” perk system offers further refinement of playstyle by modifying and improving player abilities, while the game’s Challenge Card system is said to “offer a new experience with each playthrough” by altering the approach to each mission.
The game also features over 20 enemy types, including Weyland-Yutani Synthetic foes and “11 different Xenomorphs along the evolutionary scale from Facehuggers to Praetorians.” Each enemy type has its own methods to try and outsmart players.
There’s no solid release date just yet, though Aliens: Fireteam is targeting a summer 2021 release window for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and PC via Steam.

Bethesda and Arkane Lyon have released a new video detailing the core gameplay mechanics of their “murder-puzzle” shooter, Deathloop.
These eight targets will be spread across the four districts that make up the island at different times of the day, and it looks like players will have to learn more about their patterns and behaviours in order to take down multiple targets at once.
Hindering your progress is another assassin called Juliana, who will hunt players down and kill them “more than once.” With each death, the day resets, but players are said to be given the chance to keep their equipment, supernatural abilities and knowledge gained along the way.
Although the time loop feature plays a prominent role, there is no timer, with players able to go at their own pace as they figure out how to “piece together the perfect loop to freedom.”
Deathloop is out 21 May on PC and PS5 as a timed console exclusive. According to the trailer, the game will not be available on other platforms “until at least” 21 May next year.

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.
