BATTLECREW Space Pirates Preview

BATTLECREW Space Pirates is a fun multiplayer offering, although it currently feels a bit light content wise. It’s definitely a step above most multiplayer Early Access titles, but Dontnod Eleven will need to work hard in order to keep it relevant in the crowded Steam ecosystem.

Pit People Preview

Pit People’s charming characters, polished gameplay and complex yet easy to learn mechanics turn it into an instant winner.

Days of War Preview

Days of War feels like a worthy contender for the WW2 multiplayer FPS crown. Driven Arts’ debut title fills a spot that has been empty for far too long, and if the developers can implement the features outlined in their roadmap while the community is still alive and kicking, they may have the next big shooter on their hands.
