Eurogamer talks Black Ops 4's battle royale mode in this week's podcast

Oscar mic.

Another year, another Call of Duty game - and one everyone in the office is glued to thanks to Black Ops 4's take on the Battle Royale genre. Sounds like a good excuse for a Eurogamer Podcast! (Or shall we say 'CoDcast'! No?)

This week sees host Matthew Reynolds joined by battle royale newcomer Wesley Yin-Poole, Fortnite expert Emma Kent and Digital Foundry's Tom Morgan to discuss whether Blackout makes for a worthwhile single-player replacement.

We also cover the various improvements over the beta, surprise inclusion of split-screen, and where Call of Duty goes from here. Plus, our favourite feature of all - crashing through every window we can find.

Dying Light 2 will take "at least" 500 hours to complete, says Techland

"But a regular player should finish the story + side quests in less than 100 hours, so don't worry!"

BioWare "laser-focused on building back the trust of our fans and community"

And the next Dragon Age will be a "single-player experience that is built on choices that matter".

Elden Ring overtakes Dying Light 2 to become Steam's most wishlisted game

And in doing so, it knocks Dying Light 2 off its 12-month long streak.
