This mod for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim allows you to completely destroy objects, like barrels and chairs
https://www.dsogaming.com/news/this-mod-for-the-elder-scrolls-v-skyrim-allows-you-completely-destroy-objects-like-barrels-and-chairs/
John Jarvis has released a really cool mod for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. This mod, called “Destructible Skyrim – Breakable Objects”, allows players to destroy various environmental objects. Now I don’t know about you, but I’m really glad that someone is finally bringing destructible objects to Skyrim.
As the modder noted, players can now smash objects to pieces and watch the physics-enabled debris fly everywhere.
>> The mod is available from Nexus Mods. Here are the links for the original game and the Special Edition:

Skyrim SE mod finally lets you do something useful with books, like burn them
https://www.pcgamer.com/skyrim-se-mod-finally-lets-you-do-something-useful-with-books-like-burn-them/
It's about time book burning came to Skyrim Special Edition. A Tragedy in Black? Boethiah's Proving? Pah! Those are not fine works of literature. They're heretical garbage, and should be treated as such: First ripped to pieces and then burned to a crisp. And really, how many copies of Argonian Account does any one person need? Enter Project Illiteracy, which promises to let you put your books to good use as fuel against the harsh winter nights.

Fallout 4 mods add AI-enhanced LOD textures, HD landscape & road textures, improve interior lighting
https://www.dsogaming.com/news/fallout-4-mods-add-ai-enhanced-lod-textures-hd-landscape-road-textures-improve-interior-lighting/

>> Check out the article for the descriptions of each one and the links to get them (they're all from Nexus Mods).

No Man's Sky modders are already updating mods for Beyond
https://www.pcgamer.com/no-mans-sky-modders-are-already-updating-mods-for-beyond/
The No Man's Sky modding community is relatively small, but full of important tweaks to the space-faring sim to change the game's UI, controls, and visuals. It's easy to rely on even the smallest changes to games when they get locked into your muscle memory and being suddenly without them is an annoyance. Fortunately, modders for No Man's Sky seem to be updating to Beyond (the latest 2.0 version of the game) extremely quickly.
>> Check the article for the mods and links. It's worth noting that they're not the same as the mods from last Friday's article.

System Shock 2 Enhanced Edition devs are focused on multiplayer and mods
https://www.pcgamer.com/system-shock-2-enhanced-edition-devs-are-focused-on-multiplayer-and-mods/
Nightdive Studios announced last week that it's working on an enhanced version of System Shock 2, which came as a shock to me because I thought it had been announced months ago. Apparently I confused it with one of the other System Shocks currently in the works—either the remake of the original, which Nightdive is also working on, or System Shock 3, being developed by Otherside Entertainment. There's a whole lot of Shocking going on.

Apex Legends producer says Iron Crown Collection Event 'missed the mark'
https://www.pcgamer.com/apex-legends-producer-says-iron-crown-collection-event-missed-the-mark/
The Apex Legends Iron Crown Collection Event, running until August 27, is "bigger, much more expensive, and more complicated" than we expected, and that hasn't gone over particularly well with some parts of the community. The biggest complaint, as articulated in this Reddit thread, seems to be that the event offers some really gorgeous Legendary skins, but they can't be crafted like other Legendaries—they're only available through event-specific crates.
>> Sadly, the Reddit thread has taken a wrong turn, with the producer calling players 'ass-hats' and 'dicks'.

Bungie admits Destiny 2's Trials of the Nine 'wasn't the hero we wanted it to be'

Epic Games has opened a new streaming-focused studio in Cologne, Germany, to be led by the founders of developer Factor 5, which made the excellent Star Wars: Rogue Squadron games.
Update: Epic Games has said its new studio will work on "existing streaming technologies", such as those that let players watch the Fortnite World Cup while in-game. Don't expect the studio to pump out new games or streaming platforms, then.

Indonesian indie studio Toge Productions are working on Coffee Talk, a game about being a barista in a version of Seattle where fantasy folk live alongside humans.

https://www.pcgamer.com/everything-coming-in-rainbow-six-siege-operation-ember-rise-and-what-it-means-for-the-meta/
After weeks of leaks and rumors surrounding Rainbow Six Siege’s Operation Ember Rise, Ubisoft has fully unveiled two new operators and a dramatic rework of its strangest map. New attacker Amaru and defender Goyo aren’t upending Siege’s meta, but they bring along two gadgets that play against established expectations in fun ways: a window-bursting grapple hook and a deceptively deadly deployable shield.

Rainbow Six Siege is getting a battle pass
https://www.pcgamer.com/rainbow-six-siege-is-getting-a-battle-pass/
In a move that seemed almost inevitable in 2019, Rainbow Six Siege is finally jumping on the battle pass train. The battle pass will give players a new progression track to unlock cosmetics, renown boosters, and new operator lore.

Cliff Bleszinski might make another game after all (and it won't be a battle royale)
https://www.pcgamer.com/cliff-bleszinski-might-make-another-game-after-all-but-it-wont-be-a-battle-royale/
Cliff Bleszinski surprised us in November when, following the failure of his battle royale Radical Heights, he swore off making games forever. But the LawBreakers creator and former design director at Epic Games has now changed his tune, saying he has "a game idea and it won't get out of my head".

Microsoft will be announcing something 'exciting' about Age of Empires at Gamescom
https://www.pcgamer.com/microsoft-will-be-announcing-something-exciting-about-age-of-empires-at-gamescom/
Microsoft are presenting an Inside Xbox showcase as part of Gamescom on Monday, and they're teasing some "exciting" news related to Age of Empires as part of it. There's a couple of things in the works this could relate to. Most excitingly, there's Age of Empires 4, currently in development by Relic (of Dawn of War and Company of Heroes fame), which we don't know much about though Phil Spencer told us it's "making good progress".
>> It better be proper gameplay, or else...

This new Control trailer shows off its ray traced lighting effects
https://www.pcgamer.com/this-new-control-trailer-shows-off-its-ray-traced-lighting-effects/
Remedy has released another new trailer for Control with ray traced global illumination enabled throughout the footage.
The trailer looks great, and a lot of that is down to Control's striking art design—which to my mind is reminiscent of Christopher Nolan's visual style. But Nvidia's ray tracing effects are easy to see in several shots, adding extra visual depth to reflections and real-time shadows.

Ghostrunner is a cyberpunk-style mix of Dishonored and Mirror's Edge
https://www.pcgamer.com/ghostrunner-is-a-cyberpunk-style-mix-of-dishonored-and-mirrors-edge/
The wall-running parkour revolution has kind of fizzled out in video games, and that's a sad thing. Fortunately, an upcoming game called Ghostrunner seems to remember the heady days of Titanfall 2 and Mirror's Edge as fondly as I do, and developer One More Level seems keen to pack as much of that stuff into one trailer as they can fit.

Journey to the Savage Planet will have online co-op, launches in January
https://www.pcgamer.com/journey-to-the-savage-planet-will-have-online-co-op-launches-in-january-embargoed/
I got a bit of hands-on time with Journey to the Savage Planet, the first-person exploration adventure game from Typhoon Studios, back in June. It proved to be a colorful, humorous, and sometimes gross experience filled with bizarre landscapes, shrieking aliens, and oddball weapons and tools.
And even though I played it solo during my demo, you won't have to go it alone when it's released. 505 Games and developer Typhoon Studios have announced that Journey to the Savage Planet will be playable in two-player online co-op.

Gory Metroidvania Blasphemous launches next month

On the Humble Store there are three new sales:

At Fanatical, the new Star Deal is Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands for UPlay, 75% off for the next 48 hours: https://www.fanatical.com/en/game/tom-clancys-ghost-recon-wildlands

NVIDIA GeForce 436.02 WHQL driver available for download, improves performance, adds Integer Scaling
https://www.dsogaming.com/news/nvidia-geforce-436-02-whql-driver-available-for-download-improves-performance-adds-integer-scaling/
NVIDIA has released a brand new driver for its graphics cards. According to the release notes, the NVIDIA GeForce 436.02 WHQL driver improves performance by up to 23% in popular games. Furthermore, this Gamescom 2019 driver adds New Ultra-Low Latency, Integer Scaling and Image Sharpening.
Going into more details, NVIDIA claims that most of the performance improvements come for 1080p and 1440p. My guess is that the green team was able to further optimize its driver for some newer games. At 4K, the performance improvements are minimal. Therefore, these performance improvements should, theoretically benefit even those with weaker CPU/systems.
Some of the games that see better performance with these new drivers are: Apex Legends, Battlefield V, Forza Horizon 4, Strange Brigade and World War Z.
In addition, NVIDIA has introduced a new Ultra-Low Latency mode. This mode enables ‘just in time’ frame scheduling, submitting frames to be rendered just before the GPU needs them. This further reduces latency by up to 33%.

Tuesday news, part two:

Bloodlines 2 RTX trailer teases sweet graphics and a mysterious woman in red
https://www.pcgamer.com/bloodlines-2-rtx-trailer-teases-sweet-graphics-and-a-mysterious-woman-in-red/
A new trailer for Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 demonstrates the game's very impressive (and very moody) visual styling when running on one of Nvidia's RTX-capable graphics cards. "Ray-traced lighting and reflections" might be an accidentally ironic angle to take on a game about vampires, but it sure is pretty—after all, you can't have quality shadows without quality lighting.

Destiny 2 Gamescom trailer shows off new Shadowkeep exotic
https://www.pcgamer.com/destiny-2-gamescom-trailer-shows-shadowkeep-finishing-moves-and-new-exotic/
A new Destiny 2: Shadowkeep trailer released today at Gamescom. As expected, the action is set on the moon, the expansion's returning and expanded location, and showcases new gear, slow-motion finishing moves, and—very briefly—the Assassin's Cowl. It's a veil-like exotic mask for Hunters that grants invisibility and restores a portion of health and shields when you defeat an enemy in PvE with a finishing move or a fellow guardian in PvP with a melee attack.

Destiny 2's Season of the Undying looks uncomfortably Vexy based on this story trailer
https://www.pcgamer.com/destiny-2s-season-of-the-undying-will-be-uncomfortably-vexy-according-to-this-story-trailer/
Bungie dropped a big surprise at Gamescom tonight: While Guardians are busy trying to figure out what's happening on the Moon in Destiny 2: Shadowkeep, their old nemesis the Vex are on the way back.

Age of Empires 2: Definitive Edition is coming in November
https://www.pcgamer.com/microsoft-will-be-announcing-something-exciting-about-age-of-empires-at-gamescom/
The promised announcement turned out to be two announcements. First, we now have a release date for Age of Empires 2: Definitive Edition, which will be out on November 14 on the Microsoft Store, Xbox Game Pass for PC, and—the big one—Steam. And second, the original Age of Empires: Definitive Edition, released in 2018 on the Microsoft Store, is also now available on Steam.
>> So let me get this right. Two years after announcing AoE IV, and after promising two announcements for Gamescom... they come up with this? Are they f*cking serious?!

Goofy strategy sim Spacebase Startopia announced for late next year
https://www.pcgamer.com/goofy-strategy-sim-spacebase-startopia-announced-for-late-next-year/
Spacebase Startopia, a colorful and goofy-looking space station strategy simulation, is the descendant of a much older and less colorful game from 2001, Startopia. The cinematic trailer that introduces us to the new Spacebase Startopia doesn't give up much on gameplay (though it does squeeze in a Keanu at E3 joke) but based on the brief details from the game's Steam page, it will share some things in common with the original.

Respawn CEO Vince Zampella apologizes for developer comments in Apex Legends furor
https://www.pcgamer.com/respawn-ceo-vince-zampella-apologizes-for-developer-comments-in-apex-legends-furor/
Respawn Entertainment CEO Vince Zampella has apologized for disparaging comments made by members of the Apex Legends development team, including executive producer Drew McCoy, in a heated Reddit thread over the weekend. Zampella said that regardless of the threats and abuse the development team faces, it needs to "lead by example," and promised to do better in the future.

You can now report Rainbow Six Siege players with a 'negative attitude'
https://www.pcgamer.com/you-can-now-report-rainbow-six-siege-players-with-a-negative-attitude/
Rainbow Six Siege has a big toxicity problem. Matches are regularly littered with harassment and verbal abuse, made worse by players not having good in-game tools to punish offenders.
Thankfully, Ubisoft is at least trying to clean up Siege's culture. Players signing on to the Technical Test Server today for the new Ember Rise season were surprised to find a new suite of options for reporting players that go beyond its simple "report toxic behavior" button.

Syberia: The World Before will bring back Kate Walker for a new adventure
https://www.pcgamer.com/syberia-the-world-before-will-bring-back-kate-walker-for-a-new-adventure/
Syberia 3 was really bad, which was unfortunate because the first two games in the surreal adventure series were quite good, and fans waited more than a decade after the release of the second chapter for the arrival of the third—an awfully long time to hold out hope for such a disappointing conclusion. Fortunately for those fans, that dismal wrap-up won't be the end of the story.

A Rockstar title called 'Bonaire' has been refused classification in Australia
https://www.pcgamer.com/a-rockstar-title-called-bonaire-has-been-refused-classification-in-australia/
A Rockstar project called 'Bonaire' has been refused classification in Australia, which means it's effectively banned in the country. That's not necessarily interesting, because as you'll see, a bunch of stuff has been "effectively banned" in Australia of late. What's interesting, is that we don't know what 'Bonaire' is.

The next Settlers game has been delayed until 2020
https://www.pcgamer.com/embargoed-until-aug-12-1200-pt-the-next-settlers-game-has-been-delayed-until-2020/
At last year's Gamescom, Ubisoft revealed they were working on a new The Settlers game, the first entry in the age-old series since 2010. At the time, the publisher planned on launching the game in the autumn of 2019. Today Ubisoft announced The Settlers will launch on PC in 2020.

Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord now has an early access release date
https://www.pcgamer.com/mount-and-blade-ii-bannerlord-now-has-an-early-access-release-date/
For as long as anyone can remember, Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord has been a thing of legend. Old men whispered that it still lived, while the young people scoffed at them. It's become the stuff of games writing memes, because every time you do a story about Bannerlord, the only comments are along the lines of, "release date WHEN?"

Doom Eternal has a longer single player campaign than Doom 2016
https://www.pcgamer.com/doom-eternal-campaign-length/
Doom 2016 had a pretty substantial single-player campaign—a good thing, because what made it so amazing definitely was not the multiplayer options when it launched. Doom Eternal's campaign is going to be beefier still, according to id executive producer Marty Stratton.

I was so happy to see Kerbal Space Program 2 announced, even if I have to wait 2020. I've been with KSP for 7 years now, on and off, and it's always a blast (pun indetended).

Any more info about it as in how much new stuff there is or what you noticed look new/different from the reveal other than graphics? I never actually got around to KSP after coming close to jumping in a few times after a friend of mine kept telling me how great it is with the many hundred of hours he put in.

One thing I did notice is that the sequel is been developed by a completely different studio which is quite weird in itself whilst KSP1 developers will continue to support the first game.

That's probably because Squad, that created and made the first Kerbal, sold the IP to Take-Two who, in turn, has chosen one of their in-house studios to develop the sequel instead of spending extra money hiring the makers of the first one.

Yeah...new technologies, colonies (which then can eventually launch ships) and interstellar travel. Oh, and multiplayer.

There was lot of these things in KSP already if you mod it (even warp drives), but I'm glad to see full revamp of the game (hopefully on better engine than Unity).
It's really stellar (again, pun intended) game (loosely speaking) for everyone interested in space exploration.

Oh right, it's going to be interesting since Squad will continue to support and update it along side KSP2.

Ah colony/base building that's great always a sucker for that :) I'm looking forward for more info on what scale of MP they offer whether it's hop in with a friend or 2 or something wider such as visiting other colonies and seeing a larger server of others in the universe.

Maybe I should grab the first game whilst it's on sale.. hmmm
