I love games; horrors and puzzle/strategy are my favourite genres but I enjoy playing pretty much anything. I still believe a good story is important and shouldn't play second fiddle to the multiplayer experience unless via a co-op campaign. I also enjoy watching football, supporting the mighty Liverpool, as well as drinking tea and petting my kittens.

Here it is, our round up of the latest gaming news from the second half of the week.

Town of Light demo released on PS4 and Xbox One

You may have seen in our last gaming news roundup that Wired Productions were planning to spend the next year raising awareness of mental health issues. As part of that campaign, their friends at LKA.it who developed The Town of Light (which we reviewed HERE) have decided to release a complimentary demo of the game on PS4 and Xbox One.

It may not seem like much releasing a demo, but for a game in which the main character suffers from symptoms of mental illness, this is a brilliant way in helping to get the subject much-needed exposure. You’ll be able to download the demos online, and if you like the taster why not support the developer and publisher by purchasing the full version.

Square Enix is bringing the latest Dragon Quest game to the western world

While some of you, including myself, are currently picking your fantasy football XI (we’ve got a league going on HERE, email josh@fullsync.co.uk for details) Square Enix is planning on bringing Dragon Quest XI from the far east to the west. To announce the arrival of the latest game in the Dragon Quest series, which will arrive in 2018, creator Yuri Horii recorded this message:

 

New, FREE, content coming to Forza Horizon 3

In some news which will no doubt have my little brother very happy, it has been announced that Forza Horizon 3 will be getting some new free content in the form of the Final Fantasy XV Regalia. Those with Forza Horizon 3 will receive their code through the in-game messaging system, for those who don’t have Forza though but do have Final Fantasy XV, your code will arrive via the Xbox Live messaging system. So be sure to check your messages.

Here’s a clip of the car in all its glory:

 

Team Racing League gets August release date

Ever watched the team cycling events in the Olympics and wished that you could get involved in that team-based racing action? Wish granted.

Gamious, a small development team from Holland, have this week announced that their game Team Racing League, will be arriving on Steam on August 11th for the small sum of £6.99. Unlike other racing games where you’re head-to-head against all the other racers, Team Racing League brings to the market a dedicated 3 vs 3 multiplayer racing experience.

Master your teamwork skills so you can bulk up your CV, but more importantly so you can help your team to cross the finish line in first place. The mechanics of the game mean you’ll each find yourself assigning unique roles to each racer, maybe you’ll be a front-runner, or maybe you’ll play the role of support, staying back and sabotaging the opposition with roadblocks. Either way, if you don’t work together, you aren’t going to win many races.

We’ll be bringing you a review of this game shortly, so be sure to keep an eye out for that. But in the meantime, should you want more info or just to know where to go to find the game when it goes live, you can do so by clicking HERE.


That’s enough for today, we’re going off to play some games. We’ll be back on Wednesday with another round up of the week’s gaming news.
