Registration is open for early access to The Witcher mobile game

It's been eight months since CD Projekt announced that it's working on an augmented reality mobile game set in its beloved Witcher franchise. Think Pokemon Go, only with a lot more swearing and murder. The developers say that the game will hit Android in an early access soft launch this summer, and you can apply to be a beta tester now.

I got into the Diablo Immortal closed alpha — here's an hour of gameplay

I got into the Diablo Immortal closed alpha — here's an hour of gameplay

Earlier this week Diablo Immortal entered into a closed alpha test in Australia, and I've managed to gain access to this alpha and so I've recorded an hour-long gameplay video at 1080p/60FPS so everyone can see how it currently plays. This video shows off all of the selectable characters, the game's settings, and offers plenty of gameplay as the Crusader. While Blizzard is adamant that Diablo Immortal is still a work in progress, since the current alpha is limited to Australia I figured those around the rest of the world might want to see how development is moving forward.

Albion Online is coming to Android, so you can get griefed on the go

Albion Online comes from many of the people that worked on EVE Online, and so it too is a sandbox MMO, and as you can see in the picture above, it offers a fantasy theme. Back when the game was crowdfunded through founders packs, it was promised that an Android and iOS version would be made. An Android APK has been available since 2017, but the iOS version is still missing. Well, as of today, Sandbox Interactive has announced that the MMO will be officially released on Android and iOS this summer, with cross-play in tow for all platforms.

Warhammer's new mobile title is free of in-app purchases and will quench your X-COM thirst

The Warhammer series has seen many mobile releases, and almost all of them are horrible cash-grabs. Apparently, Games Workshop will license the property out to anyone, but for once, I have a Warhammer announcement that's actually good news. You see, Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus is a well-reviewed strategy game from PC and consoles that's coming to mobile soon. To be more specific, this is a turned-based strategy game that plays similarly to the X-Com series, and it's coming to Android and iOS tablets on April 22nd.
