Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18334 is available for download, brings Gaming Improvements
Microsoft has announced that Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18334 is currently available to all Windows Insiders. According to the team, this new build comes with some Gaming Improvements that the Insiders can test and offer their report/feedback to it.
Going into more details, Microsoft has brought technology tailor-made for gaming to Windows via this new build. Insiders will help the team validate these systems work as expected, and play State of Decay for free (limited time only!). Microsoft is interested to know whether there are any problems Insiders encounter with installing and launching the game.
From the looks of it, the State of Decay PC version is actually the Steam version and rumour has it that Microsoft may bring Win32 games with Steamworks to the Microsoft Store.
3DMark Port Royal – New official comparison video between TAA and DLSS
UL Benchmarks has released an official comparison video between the TAA and DLSS techniques that are being used in its latest real-time ray tracing benchmark tool, 3DMark Port Royal. This comparison video showcases the visual improvements that DLSS brings to the table, and we strongly suggest watching it.
As UL Benchmarks noted, this video compares the image quality of TAA and DLSS using a special version of the test that has a unique camera path that hasn’t been shared with NVIDIA. The free camera movement simulates a game where the player can move freely around the environment producing new, unique images that the DLSS model cannot possibly have seen before in its training.
NieR Automata mod released for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and looks incredible
Modders ‘immyneedscake’ and ‘Rektas’ have released a NieR Automata mod for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition. This mod is based on the Nier Automata Armor by dint999 and contains 2B and A2 armor, thus allowing gamers to venture the world of Skyrim with one of the two cyborgs that were featured in NieR Automata.
This mod comes with proper physics a full BodySlide conversion of everything but the wigs and sword. The attention to detail is incredible and I’m pretty sure that a lot of Skyrim and NieR Automata fans will love this mod.
In order to install it, you’ll have to download the mod from here, build the outfit in BodySlide and get them through crafting, AddItemMenu or console command ‘help nier’.
You can now play as Kratos from PS4’s God of War in Skyrim thanks to this amazing mod
God of War and Skyrim fans, here is something for you today. Following our NieR Automata mod for Skyrim Special Edition, today we are presenting you another mod that brings Kratos from the latest Playstation 4 exclusive God of War game to Bethesda’s open-world RPG.
Created by modder ‘PotatoFactory’, this is just a simple character preset for Kratos from the newest God of War game. The preset also has the adjustments for the weapon placement (when they’re sheathed). His Leviathan Axe and the Blades of Chaos are on his back (as it should be), just like in the original game, though you’ll probably have to install Racemenu (duh) and XPMSE for that to work properly.

Resident Evil 3 Reborn aims to faithfully remake a scene from RE3 in Unreal Engine 4 (WIP)
YouTube’s ‘unknownexe96’ has shared a video, showing a WIP scene from Resident Evil 3 being recreated in Unreal Engine 4. Now while this project is still a Work In Progress, unknownexe96 appears to be willing to release the map to the public once it’s been finished.
Unknownexe96 aims to remake Dario Rosso’s Shelter in 3D. Players will be able to explore it via fixed camera angles, thus giving everyone an idea of what a faithful remake – with fixed camera angles – of Resident Evil 3 could look like.
New comparison screenshots released for the upcoming new version of The Witcher 3 HD Reworked Project
Modder ‘Halk Hogan’ has released some new comparison screenshots between the upcoming version of his HD Reworked Project and the vanilla version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. These new screenshots showcase some of the improved textures that Halk Hogan is bringing to the table. Moreover, the modder claimed that “something… like never before…” will be featured in this upcoming version.
You can now play as Triss Merigold from The Witcher 3 in Monster Hunter World
Now here is something cool. Monster Hunter: World’s Witcher 3 crossover event is live (on consoles, it will be coming to the PC later this year), allowing players to assume the role of Geralt of Rivia and slay some monsters. And if that wasn’t enough, a new mod has surfaced, allowing players to assume the role of Triss Merigold from The Witcher series in order to kill more monsters.
Now as you may have guessed, this is a 3D model replacement mod and nothing more. Contrary to the NieR Automata or the Final Fantasy XV Aranea mod, this mod appears to be closer to the Metroid Prime Samus mod.
Unfortunately, modder ‘crimsonfaust’ has not shared any additional details about this mod or whether there are plans to bring some of Merigold’s magic abilities to Capcom’s monster hunting title.

An absolute legend has finally modded DMX into Resident Evil 2
We asked for it, and it happened. After people started making videos that overlaid the 2003 DMX single X Gon' Give it to Ya over the appearances of Mr. X in the Resident Evil 2 remake, we were all waiting for an enterprising modder to make it real. And now, DJ Pop has done exactly that. You can find instructions for how to download and install the mod on Steam. God bless PC gaming.
As per the mod's description, it'll play when Mr. X appears in these locations
>> You'll have to check the article or the mod page to know where it appears.
This fan-made Battletech expansion adds a bunch of lore-friendly mechs
Battletech Extended 3025 adds plenty of lore-friendly mechs and variants to Battletech, and looks like a good excuse to jump back into one of the best PC games you can play right now.
"This mod mostly adds a ton of mechs, vehicles and variants, including new mechs you haven't seen elsewhere that are all Lore compliant for 3025," reads the Nexus Mods description. Factions will use the mechs that make sense to them, but occasionally they'll use another faction's gear—but again, only if it makes sense in the lore.
Doom megawad Eviternity hits final revision
Eviternity is a massive project put together by the Doom modding community consisting of six five-map episodes which use a new high-quality texture pack. The episodes each explore a different theme, with examples like "Icy castles", "Medieval", and "Industrial/Brutalism". Oh, and of course "Hell/Gore/Alien". There are a couple of secret maps as well, because what would Doom be without secrets?
Though it was initially released in December, Eviternity has just had a final revision, and you can read all about its changes here. Or you could just follow the instructions here to download all 49 or so megabytes of it.
