Goat Simulator Studio Launches Satisfactory Early Access

Coffee Stain Studios, the original team behind Goat Simulator and Sanctum just released Satisfactory for PC on Epic Games Store for early access. Satisfactory is a gorgeous first-person factory builder sim, with a dash of No Man’s Sky and a splash of mystery. The game has been in closed alpha since October 2018 but Coffee Stain Studios thinks Satisfactory is ready for a larger scale test. Along with the announcement of its early access release, the studio also posted a development roadmap so fans can know what to expect over the next couple months.

Satisfactory Early Access Launch Trailer



In the short two minute early access launch trailer, a massive amount of content can be seen. An expansive “handcrafted” world awaits the employees of FICSIT Inc., measuring in at 30km2 or just under 20 square miles. Players are enterprising space Pioneers tasked with charting and exploring a strange alien world. They will build and automate monstrous factories for an unknown reason. FICSIT Inc. employees are not the typical 9-5 workers. These individuals need to fight off hostile alien beasts, research new tech, automate vehicles and continue improving their area of operation.

Multiplayer, Vehicles, and Wacky Aliens!

Satisfactory early access launches with multiplayer (1-4 players), vehicles with automation capabilities, and six tiers of milestones that each unlock new machines, resources, and equipment. The game releases on early access with an impressive amount of content but the studio ensures this is only the beginning.

“Satisfactory offers immense creative freedom for players. Working with the community during the alpha and seeing their amazing and bizarre factories has been an awesome and constantly surprising experience,” said Oscar Julsen, Game Director at Coffee Stain Studios. “The game is far from perfect but we have huge plans moving forward and we’re excited to invite players to exploit this beautiful alien planet with us and shape the future of irresponsible space construction!”

Those on PC can purchase a copy today for $29.95 and the company warned that this price could increase when a full version of the game is released. Satisfactory can be found right now exclusively on the Epic Games Store.

Coffee Stain Studios is incredibly transparent about the development process and relays that they are unsure how long early access will last. They did state that the game will be in early access for at least a year but it could be longer. No word yet on when fans can expect to pick up a 1.0 version.

Creator of Left 4 Dead Announces New Zombie Survival Title Back 4 Blood

The developer behind Left 4 Dead and Evolve, Turtle Rock Studios, has announced a new zombie co-op shooter that's set to be published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. Back 4 Blood is said to be a premium Triple A title that utilizes the studios talent at making similar titles while also leveraging new tech to create a better experience on current gen systems.

Have Questions About Back 4 Blood?

Turtle Rock released a faqs page that has some extra details about the game. Although, it never mentions post-launch content or microtransactions, and reinforces that Back 4 Blood is a brand new IP that has nothing to do with Left 4 Dead. It also states that the game will contain a campaign and PVP, but points out that it is not a Battle Royale title.

Some information can be gathered from the way key individuals are talking about the project. The Creative Direct, Phil Robb, said the studio is adding talent to the team and is using knowledge from previous titles on Back 4 Blood. While the Design Director, Chris Ashton, explained that this project has been on the team's mind for quite some time.

"It's hard to overstate what an awesome opportunity this is," Ashton said. "We get to return to a genre that was born in our studio with over 10 years of additional experience and zombie ideas racked up in our brains. We also have some of the best teammates in the business at WBIE, who understand our development process and are equally committed to our player-first mentality. We love being able to announce, so we can start working with the community right away."

After making Left 4 Dead, Turtle Rock made Evolve which borrowed ideas from the aforementioned title but added a fifth player that took the role of a monster trying to murder their human counterparts. Recently the studio was allegedly working on a new fantasy game for Perfect World, but according to the faqs page that project has stopped development.

Borderlands 3 Could Become a Reality

Borderlands 3, is that you?

Borderlands fans have been asking for Borderlands 3 since 2012, immediately after the second game released. The open world action RPG achieved a level of entertainment value well above similar shared-world shooter games released toward the latter end of the decade. Now, 7 years after the release of Borderlands 2, Gearbox is reving up fans by teasing a possible release of Borderlands 3.

Gearbox announced their appearance at the PAX East mainstage by sharing the image below on Twitter. Look carefully at the top right of the image. “Exit 3” can be seen poking out, partially cropped out of the image. Along with the Exit 3 hint, the Tweet was sent out exactly at 3:00pm.

Borderlands 3 - Hint, Hint

Gearbox will take the main theater stage at PAX East on March 28th. The studio’s event takes place on the first day of PAX East so fans won’t have to wait long to see if Gearbox is ready to drop Borderlands 3. A description accompanied the Gearbox event which reads, “This is your opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes look at Gearbox Software and Gearbox Publishing, along with the latest news and updates from the makers of Borderlands, Battleborn, Brothers in Arms, and more! We will have never-before-seen reveals, exclusives, and surprises, so don’t miss out!”

As mentioned at the beginning of this article, Borderlands was massively successful at creating a cooperative first-person shooter that puts major titles like Destiny, Fallout 76, and most recently Anthem to shame. Gearbox was able to create a single-player world that transitions to cooperative play seamlessly. It has a massive amount of content and most importantly, released as a complete game. However, Borderlands 2 did release in 2012, well before this new “Games as a Service” model was first introduced. If Gearbox does announce Borderlands 3 and they stay true to what their fans know and love, it will have a massive chance at overshaddowing Anthem or the upcoming shared-world-shooter, The Division 2.

It’s not confirmed Borderlands 3 is the announcement Gearbox Software has planned for their main stage presentation at PAX East 2019. Even with the multiple references to “3”, Gearbox is infamous for trolling fans, but in a good way. For all the gamers that want to get their hands on Borderlands 3, it would be a crushing blow to watch Gearbox come and go from that main theater without official word on the third Borderlands.

Be sure to check back with GigamaxGames.com on March 28th after Gearbox takes to the PAX East stage for even more updates.

The Division 2 Has Massive Day One Update

Fans are only a few days out from getting their hands on The Division 2, Ubisoft's latest shared world shooter. Much like the recently released game Anthem, Ubisoft is offering a number of different release dates depending on which tier of the game you buy/pre-order. However, before anyone gets to play the game they will first need to download a sizable day one update.

The Division 2 Day One Download

As detailed on Ubisoft's support website, they are releasing a patch that will fix a variety of bugs and make other improvements to the game. Players on Xbox and PC will need to have 48-52 GB (depending on region and language choice) of free space while, PS4 players will need between 88-92 GB.

Ubisoft will also be launching their Title Update 1.5 starting March 11th. Thankfully, this patch will not be as taxing, weighing in at around 2 GB depending on region and language. This patch is intended to fix issues surrounding audio cutting out that some experienced during the beta.

The Division 2

Just like the first Division, Ubisoft is set to support The Division 2 with a variety of post launch updates. The developer recently revealed their plan for the game's first year, which included two new episodes releasing in the summer and fall respectively with one more planned for the winter. Ubisoft also has a Year One Pass for those interested that gives early access to new cosmetics and perks.

Video Leaks Battlefield V’s Battle Royale Mode

Firestorm, the battle royale mode that's coming to Battlefield V, has leaked before its official release this month. The leak comes in the form of the mode's tutorial video, which recently appeared in multiple places online.

Battlefield V Firestorm Get's Leaked



As fans will be able to see in the video, the mode contains a solo, duo, and squad mode. Players drop into the map from above then compete to find weapons and items littered around the map and fight until there's one person left standing. Firestorm will also have three tiers of weapons: common, rare, and epic.

The new mode will also allow for downed players to fire their sidearm while they are waiting for players to pick them back up. Unlike the recently released Apex Legends, players will not be able to truly resurrect their squad members.


Firestorm's development was not handled by the main Battlefield V team but instead by an EA owned studio named Criterion. The mode will contain a total of 64 players fighting to win with not only Battlefield V's guns, but vehicles like tanks and other troop transports.

EA responded to the leak with a cryptic tweet that seems to confirm its validity. The tweet reads "*Checks Reddit* More to come" then contains a video of a ring of fire closing in on a squad of soldiers. It seems like DICE is preparing to reveal more on Firestorm very soon.

Ubisoft Reveals New Support Strategy For Rainbow Six Siege

Ubisoft is getting ready to launch year four of Rainbow Six Siege with Operation: Burnt Horizon. Along with the new season, the developer plans on ramping up their support for the popular first person shooter title with a few changes to how they handle updates.

Rainbow Six Siege: Update Strategy

Their first change is splitting the development team into separate sections that will cover each of the major parts of the game: events, balance, maps, and operators. Ubisoft will also create a special team that will focus on improving toxicity and player behavior to ensure every game is a pleasant experience. One change that will be implemented shortly is reflecting friendly fire damage back at trolls that are purposely team killing.

Rainbow Six Siege fans can still expect the usual release of eight new operators per season, but the Ubisoft is going to put a larger focus on maps. The team already announced one new map and three reworks for year four of the game. The reworks will cosmetically change some features on the maps and move cover to create new chokepoints.

The company stated that they will now have to shift focus to cater to new players and those that have invested their time since Siege launched in 2015. This means that server queues will be altered to help new players get their footing and ensure that veterans have the same competitive experience they've come to expect.

Ubisoft wants to place a greater focus on new events that introduce new themes and limited time activities to the game. The development team wants to test new twists on gameplay with these events and will use community feedback to see what works and what doesn't. Rainbow Six Siege continues to expand and grow, to keep up to date with the latest news, be sure to check back with us here at GigamaxGames.com.

Apex Legends is Here: Next Big Free Battle Royale

Respawn Entertainment released their free-to-play Battle Royale game, Apex Legends on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Gamers can download Apex Legends right now even though the game was only recently announced. A part of the Titanfall universe, this is not a new Titanfall game, instead, it’s a unique take on the massively popular Battle Royale genre that has made waves all around the world.

Apex Legends - The New Spin

Just like Fortnite and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Respawn Entertainment took a new approach to the Battle Royale concept. Fortnite has building, PUBG has its gritty realism, and now Apex Legends is shaking things up even more. Strictly a team-based game, 20 teams consisting of three players each will fight together to survive. Along with this unique feature, Respawn Entertainment takes a note from the massive success of hero-based games as well. Just like Overwatch or Rainbow Six Siege, players will be able to choose from different “Legends” or characters that all have unique abilities. Besides the unique abilities each player possesses, each of the Legends have ultimate abilities that recharge over time.

The primary concept of Battle Royale largely remains the same in Apex Legends. Players will still drop in with no weapons and have to find their equipment scattered around a large map. However, the unique addition of hero based characters, unique abilities, and being strictly a team based game has a large impact on how gamers make it to the end.

Respawn Entertainment Continues to Innovate

Apex Legends also has a few mechanics that help the matchmaking system remain competitive and team-based. Respawn Entertainment included a helpful ping system. Using a single button, gamers can mark locations, loot, and enemies to alert the rest of their team. Communication is always key in a Battle Royale game with others. The ping system circumvents the issue of jumping into matchmaking with other gamers that might not have a headset. The ping system ensures communication is still possible, even if no one is actually speaking to each other.

apex legends, apex legends news, apex legends characters, apex legends battle royale, battle royale, free to play, apex legends free, video game news, gaming news, newest games

There are eight “Legends” or heroes to choose from at this point in time. It is expected that Respawn Entertainment will continue adding more characters as the game progresses. The unique characters are listed below along with additional information about the classes. Bloodhound: Track and ping enemy players.

  • Bloodhound: Track and ping enemy players.
  • Gibraltar: Defensive, able to deflect enemy fire and has a dome shield.
  • Lifeline: A medic class that can revive teammates and uses a drone that heals allies.
  • Pathfinder: Recon focused, allows players to access hard-to-reach areas.
  • Wraith: Offensive, revealing enemies firing positions and also has a phase shifting ability.
  • Bangalore: The soldier, increased movement speed while under fire and smoke grenades to help fend off advancing attacks.
  • Caustic: Defensive, uses AOE weapons and proximity gas traps that can also be activated on demand with a well aimed shot.
  • Mirage: Trickster, using holographic decoys to confuse and throw off enemies.

Taking a page out of the Fortnite book, the free-to-play status means cosmetic items are the primary revenue stream of Apex Legends. Microtransactions allow gamers to purchase items with premium currency or roll the dice with loot boxes. However, dedicated players can ear the in-game currency so even if people don’t want to drop money on a free game, there is the possibility of collecting all that cool loot.

Apex Legends is available right now on the Origin store on PC, Xbox One, and PS4. Respawn Entertainment wasted no time getting this game in the hands of the public. A combination of Battle Royale and hero- based shooter, there are high expectations for Apex Legends as the game progresses. For more information on Apex Legends and to keep up with its continued development, be sure to stop back on GigamaxGames.com.

Atomic Heart Gameplay Trailer Beating with Terror

Atomic Heart, the upcoming video game by Mundfish is turning heads by standing out in a spectacular way. The game developer continues to release gameplay footage and every second of video they offer to the world, anticipation for Atomic Heart skyrockets.

It’s based in a alternate timeline where the technological revolution took place in the thick of the Soviet Union. Creepy doesn’t do gameplay of Atomic Heart justice. Coming to Steam, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, Atomic Heart is ready to make gamers think about, and question reality.

Atomic Heart Latest Gameplay Trailer



At first glance, it’s clear Atomic Heart is cut from a different cloth. Weird creatures, floating masses of translucent goo, little round robots and absolutely breathtaking visuals all capped off with intense combat. Gamers play as a Soviet KGB officer, tasked with inspecting “facility 3826”. Exploring both aboveground and belowground, Atomic Hearts worlds are separated into different biomes. From the information on Mundfishs’ website, it seems as though combat will be split into two classifications depending on these biomes. Ordinary regions focus on melee weaponry and, what Mundfish classifies as PVP regions wont “limit the use of firearms.”

Robots will be found around every corner of this odd and uncomfortable world. In Soviet Russia, robots were a way of life. All of these machines were manufactured in “the Factory” and were designed to serve the needs of the state or help its citizens. Every one of these robots was given a combat program which is activated in time of war. These are all the threats players will be facing as they explore this upside down timeline.

The Beta is expected to arrive in Q4 of 2019. As of now, there is no official release date but pre-orders are available to purchase on the Mundfish website. With its Bioshock-esk feel and unique take on a post-apocalyptic landscape, Atomic Heart is near the top of the Gigamax Games must-play list. Be sure to stick around as more news breaks surrounding this interesting new project by Mundfish begins to surface.

Nintendo Switch has had incredible success with indie games and City of Brass is a perfect fit for this versatile console.
