Get Kills Or Go Kaboom In Modern Warfare’s New 'Cranked' Mode

Get Kills Or Go Kaboom In Modern Warfare’s New 'Cranked' Mode

Modern Warfare’s newest mode is a return to the fast-paced, addictive multiplayer we expect from Call of Duty. It forces players to move around for kills, or else go kaboom.

This week’s update for Modern Warfare added new Special Operation missions and more multiplayer maps, but the new mode, called Cranked, was by far the standout feature of the content drop.

Originally introduced by Infinity...

Borderlands 3's First Major Expansion Reminds Me How Much I Missed Handsome Jack

Borderlands 3's First Major Expansion Reminds Me How Much I Missed Handsome Jack

Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot, the first of four major DLC expansions planned for Borderlands 3, is an odd duck with regard to the way it’s made me reconsider the game’s main campaign. While I very much enjoyed Borderlands 3 and believe this is a fun and necessary continuation of its looter-shooter adventure, the main villains and conflicts consistently felt like cheap detours...

Modern Warfare's New Maps Are A Lot Less Campy

Modern Warfare's New Maps Are A Lot Less Campy

Today’s big Modern Warfare update brings two new maps, and the free content feels like a small step forward for the heavily criticized multiplayer aspect of the new Call of Duty.

As promised with the new Modern Warfare, all maps are going to be free for everyone, and released across all platforms simultaneously. But after its launch last month, the big question has been: Will those maps be...

Fallout 76 Won’t Get Human NPCs Until Next Year

Fallout 76 Won’t Get Human NPCs Until Next Year

The next big Fallout 76 update, which will finally add human NPCs to the Appalachian wasteland, has been delayed to early 2020.

Fallout 76’s “Wastelanders” update is set to address one of the biggest complaints from the community: where are all the people? The game is set shortly after the nuclear apocalypse wiped out the population of West Virginia, plopping players down in a surprisingly...

Flimsy DLC Is Actually Nice If You Play It Years Later

Flimsy DLC Is Actually Nice If You Play It Years Later
Kotaku Game DiaryKotaku Game DiaryDaily thoughts from a Kotaku staffer about a game we're playing.Prev Next View All

They say familiarity breeds contempt, and video games often ask you to get extremely familiar with them. This might explain why, after a 60-plus-hour game, I’m usually...kind of tired? I don’t hate the game, but I’m definitely ready to move on. I like closure. Endings are nice....

Everything You Need To Know About Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3's Big Update

Everything You Need To Know About Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3's Big Update

Today’s massive update to Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 adds the first four paid downloadable characters to the game, but it’s not just that. The free update that accompanies the Curse of the Vampire expansion also adds a new game mode, ups the level cap to 150, and gives players the ability to spend in-game cash on experience points. It’s pretty huge.

I was already excited to play around a bit...

Vermintide 2's 'Winds Of Magic' Expansion Adds More Grind But Not Much Else

Vermintide 2's 'Winds Of Magic' Expansion Adds More Grind But Not Much Else

Developer Fatshark has called “Winds of Magic” Vermintide 2’s first expansion, but while it offers a completely new mode and progression system, it currently just seems like another DLC. On top of that, it feels unmoored from the strong lore and ambient apocalyptic mood that guided previous additions to the game.

“Winds of Magic” opens with a short animated movie focusing on the Beastmen,...

The Inevitable Dead Or Alive 6 Swimsuit DLC Is Here

Even A Motorcycle Stunt Race Can't Make Days Gone Feel Less Gloomy

Every week this summer, Days Gone developer Bend Studios has rolled out a new challenge for its single-player zombie survival game. The latest challenge, added over the weekend, tests how well you can drive your motorcycle. As a single update, it’s not much. As the third of 12 planned free challenges? It’s still a little thin, but also kind of fun.

The first was a horde mode that had players...

The Messenger’s New Island DLC Is A Perfect Substitute For A Day At The Beach

It’s already mid-July, and I still haven’t made it to the beach. Maybe you haven’t either. The Messenger’s free Picnic Panic expansion can fix that.

You won’t actually hear seafoam waves crashing along the shore or feel the grainy piles of hot sand beneath your feet, but Picnic Panic’s bright colors, catchy new chiptune-inspired melodies, and occasional ninja surfing offer a similarly chill...

In Ditching Paid Maps, Call Of Duty Finally Gets With The Program

Over a decade after the original era-defining Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Activision said last week that 2019’s Duty will be a re-imagining of Infinity Ward’s Modern Warfare series. Along with the campaign trailer that dropped on May 30, the community also received a dash of hope that Activision might finally be giving Call of Duty the shakeup it needs.
