STILL PLAY­ING

EDGE - - PLAY -

Elite Dan­ger­ous PC Any­body un­der­whelmed by No Man’s Sky’s cur­rent con­di­tion should look to Fron­tier’s game and take heart at just how far it’s come since launch. The lat­est up­date al­lows you to hire crew to pi­lot de­ploy­able at­tack craft, or look af­ter your ship while you do, while an alien wreck has been dis­cov­ered by hardy ex­plor­ers. That’s all very well, but is it OK that we’re more ex­cited about the prospect of fer­ry­ing tourists around the galaxy in space buses? Red Dead Re­demp­tion Xbox One Mi­crosoft’s 360 back­wards com­pat­i­bil­ity ini­tia­tive con­tin­ues to pro­vide much-needed in­cen­tive to turn on our Xbox Ones – ev­ery lo­gin is met with an old friend to re­visit – but now Rock­star’s mar­vel­lous open-world west­ern is avail­able, noth­ing else will get a look in. De­spite its age, Red Dead is still a beau­ti­ful game, and re­mains the warm­est, most be­liev­able world Rock­star has crafted. Dis­hon­ored: De­fin­i­tive Edi­tion Xbox One Has there ever been a more play­ful ex­pla­na­tion of stealth me­chan­ics than Dis­hon­ored’s ex­tracur­ric­u­lar game of hide and seek with Emily? Head­ing back to Dun­wall to re­fresh our mem­o­ries for this month’s cover fea­ture also re­vealed how well Arkane’s game stands up four years later. Sure, the tech’s look­ing a lit­tle long in the tooth, even with the De­fin­i­tive Edi­tion’s bells and whis­tles, but mov­ing through Corvo’s world is as de­light­ful as ever.
