Double Damage reveals space opera Rebel Galaxy for PC, PS4

Rebel Galaxy (PC) Announcement - Screenshot 1

Double Damage Games has revealed their debut title, the “action-packed, swashbuckling space opera” Rebel Galaxy. As the commander of a star cruiser, players will pilot through a randomly generated galaxy filled with pirates, anomalies, aliens as a rogue, trader, privateer, or somewhere in-between. The ship will be customizable with a variety of offensive and defensive upgrades that will be purchased using credits earned by harvesting and scavenging resources from artifacts, asteroids, and wreckage. Players will also be able to interact with aliens to negotiate trades and gather information. Although, going by my experience in negotiating with aliens, any talks will most likely end in a fight to the death.

GOG.com giving away Aliens vs. Predator, Linux library grows

GOG (PC) AvP Promo and Linux Announcement - Screenshot 1

For the next 48 hours, GOG.com is offering a free copy of Aliens versus Predator to users who sign up to beta test GOG Galaxy. GOG Galaxy is the service’s upcoming multiplayer client, and the game is being provided as a way for gamers to try the system and for GOG to see how the infrastructure holds up under increased stress. Bearing in mind that this is Aliens versus Predator Classic 2000, one of the better titles to use the licenses, and that the game will remain in the user’s library, this is a pretty nice bonus. A cross-compatibility update with Steam is set to go live “soon.” GOG-ers (if we can make that a thing) can head here to sign up for a copy.

Traps, crossbows, and more in new The Evil Within trailer

The Evil Within, Tango Gameworks’ upcoming survival-horror title, is due out next week, and Bethesda has released a new gameplay video. The trailer, Fight for Life, runs around three and a half minutes long and features more blood-splattered walls, monsters, and combat, but the focus this time is on traps. Traps can not only be used to lure enemies to their (final) death but also to construct new weapons, with the footage demonstrating a powerful mechanical crossbow.
