There's a saying all the best things in life are free, and now you can add PUBG to that list, as the game is currently free to download on the Microsoft Store. For a limited time.

Things can get tricky if you're unfortunate enough to share the same name as a controversial figure - especially if using the same name as that person on Twitter. Cases of mistaken identity are nothing new - take, for instance, the poor soul named John Lewis who regularly receives customer complaints about queues in a certain popular retail shop.

If you're a youth in China who just wants to have a bit of extra gaming time, the past few months haven't brought much in the way of good news. After Tencent had its licence for Monster Hunter World revoked, President Xi Jinping announced the government would regulate the amount of games approved and the amount of hours children can play - apparently to protect children's eyes. Shortly afterwards, Tencent announced it would use government data to enforce limited play times for children for its game Honour of Kings (also known as Arena of Valor in the west).

Fallout 76 modding has begun

Fission accomplished.

PC players have had their hands on the Fallout 76 beta for a mere nine hours, yet several modders have already figured out how to alter the game.

As ever, it's been a confusing time for Undertale fans. A few days ago, the official Undertale Twitter account released a file for something that seemed to be a survey, but turned out to be a demo for the follow-up game to Undertale. Named Deltarune, the game's first chapter kept players entertained for between two to three hours, and even came with its own original soundtrack.

Ask any Undertale fan what they love most about the game and chances are they'll name the soundtrack. The original music was composed by creator Toby Fox, and received a great deal of praise for its clever use of leitmotifs (recurring themes) to represent each of the main characters. Like 8-bit Wagner, really.

There's a mysterious new Undertale game

UPDATE: Deltarune uninstaller can accidentally delete your files

UPDATE 31/10/2018: Since the events of earlier today, in which the Undertale Twitter account released an entirely new game onto the internet with no warning, multiple players have reported issues when uninstalling the game.

Google's Halloween game this year is a multiplayer version of Snake

Have a play before you search the spiderweb.

As pretty much everyone's first stop on the internet, you may have noticed Google is looking a little different today. Like in previous years, the usual logo has been replaced with an interactive Halloween game - but this time Google's taken things a step further, as this particular doodle is multiplayer.

After five years, Xbox indie self-publishing programme ID@Xbox has reached its 1000 game milestone. Home to hugely successful titles such as Cuphead, Stardew Valley and Celeste, the service tips over the 1000 game mark this month with the release of Mark of the Ninja: Remastered, Dark Star's Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption and Guns, Gore and Cannoli 2 by Crazy Monkey Studios. I know, I know - it's not Below.

We're fast approaching the scheduled release window for Warframe's next open world expansion, Fortuna, which is due to arrive on PC sometime in early November. To take the hype to all new levels, Digital Extremes has created a "secret" Discord server called Solaris United, which is leading players on a wild goose chase around the internet to discover more about the lore of Fortuna. I'm not going to lie - some of Warframe's background stories are quite grim.

We've been waiting a little while for an explanation of how Tides of War - Battlefield 5's new live services system to replace the premium pass - will actually work. The developer has been pretty cagey on the subject, which is unsurprising in the wake of the backlash over Star Wars Battlefront 2's loot boxes - a mistake DICE said it "can't afford to make" in future.
