We won't keep you too long here in the intro, because we know you've got places to go and games to play. Without further ado, here's what we have for you this week!
Set in the fictional Norvinsk region of Russia, players work to escape the city of Tarkov while working under various private military companies involved in full-on warfare brought on by a major political scandal. It's an action-packed first-person shooter that features a story mode, open world mode without time limits, and arena mode with six playable maps at present. There's also an offline mode to play through should you so choose. It's currently only available to beta players, but its full release is coming soon.
This casual business simulation indie game takes you back to the year 1960, while the Cold War is in full swing. Tensions are high between the United States and the Soviet Union, and companies all over the world are competing for their share of the market. Players take on a new CEO with a fledgling company who aims to build up a formidable network to take over the market and bump out competing businesses at the same time. This PC title is aiming for a release date this Spring 2019, so if you're ready to unleash your inner business tycoon, you don't have much longer to wait!
This particular mod for The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth includes a swath of new items, enemies, secrets, and a selection of other goodies, all chosen by game fans. A public beta version of the mod is available to pick up if you're interested in trying it out. The IPECAC mod is named after the unlockable passive item in The Binding of Isaac. Its in-game description reads "Explosive Shots," but the item's primary purpose is to replace Isaac's tears with projectiles that do both explosive and poison damage. For Afterbirth players, Ipecac is part of the Bob set along with Bob's Brain and Bob's Curse. You can grab The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth now! There's more content scheduled to be added soon.
