Necromunda: Hired Gun review – a brilliant shooter whose lack of polish stops it from reaching greatness

Necromunda: Hired Gun is so close to being Warhammer 40,000 Doom.
Necromunda: Hired Gun’s reveal in March caught me a little off guard, doubly so when I realised it’s out in June and not some years into the future. Streum On, the small French team behind it, typically takes a while to put out a new game.
But years of experience and Focus Home Interactive’s newfound support have clearly helped the team arrive at the perfect size and scope for its games, because Hired Gun is a game that entertains, and sometimes impresses, without falling into the trap of overambition.

Necromunda: Hired Gun is a fairly easy game to explain. It’s a first-person shooter with a linear story. You play as a bounty hunter who’s sent after targets hiding in expansive Warhammer 40,000 locales. You do that with the help of a surprisingly big arsenal of weapons, which take the form of loot of varying rarities you can customise, upgrade and tweak in a hub world.
It’s not anything you haven’t seen..

Watch Dogs: Legion of the Dead – 22 Minutes of Alpha Gameplay (1080p 60fps)

Watch Dogs: Legion of the Dead is a brand-new online PvE mode currently in Alpha phase on PC. Watch Dogs: Legion of the Dead delivers a rogue-lite experience where players will have to “Survive-as-Anyone” against the looming threat of the undead and hostile living roaming the re-imagined fallen city of London. In solo or up to four friends in co-op, players will need to strategize on how to reach the extraction point for each run and gather as many supplies as possible along the way. Players can use abilities such as the Bee Swarm to decimate enemies, the AR Cloak to escape threats and a Combat Spider-Bot equipped with a turret for protection.
