Thanks to Unreal Engine 4, we have gotten beautiful fan remakes of game levels, like Gerudo Valley and the first level of Donkey Kong Country. But the game level face-lifts won't stop there, as a fan's recreation of the Duskwood zone from World of Warcraft proves. Created by YouTube user Daniel L, this is his latest progress in his goal to re-create the entire Eastern Kingdoms in Unreal Engine 4. The creepy tones of the 2006 game are preserved in wonderfully detailed environments. The creator clarifies that this project is not because he thinks the original art looks "bad," but because he simply wanted to have some fun re-creating one of his favorite landscapes in Unreal Engine 4.

Cheating in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has been a problem for Valve, so they have decided try and lower the number of cheaters through some interesting methods. Valve's first course of action is a new matchmaking service called "Prime" that only allows players that have a linked phone number to their account to play in matches. Any cheating in that "space" will result in the phone number (and account) being banned. Since cheaters usually have multiple accounts, any Steam account that is associated with a cheater's phone number will be banned for three months.

Earlier this week, a leaked trailer showcased some of the single player gameplay in the upcoming Doom reboot being developed by Id Software and Bethesda. Despite being taken down twice within a day or so, many fans were left excited for the shooter, even some of those who had been scorned by its less-than-successful multiplayer beta. The actual single player reveal occurred on Bethesda's Twitch page this past Wednesday, however. The livestream—which featured Martin Stratton and Hugo Martin, the executive producer and creative director of Doom respectively—focused on features that showed the developer's interest in keeping the feel of the original game while still modernizing it for 2016.

After leaving Capcom, Mega Man co-creator Keiji Inafune and the development team at Comcept began working on a spiritual successor to Mega Man known as Mighty No. 9. It's been over a year since the Kickstarter-funded action-platformer was originally scheduled to release, and we still don't have a concrete release date. Back in January, Mighty No. 9 was delayed for the third time (despite promises that there would be no more delays after the second), this time to a generic "Spring" release window.

Unfortunately, it's looking like Mighty No. 9 may be delayed yet again. Promotional materials for the long-awaited game were spotted at retailer EB Games, and they list a Summer 2016 release window for the game. Comcept has not yet commented on the supposed delay, and they haven't issued any updates on the game's Kickstarter since January.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution released in 2011, reviving the Deus Ex franchise and bringing it to the forefront of many gamers' attention. With multiple ways to accomplish goals, a variety of powers and abilities to employ, and a fascinating story of the first humans augmented with technology, the game was a big hit, and so of course developer Eidos Montreal started work on a sequel. Dubbed Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, this new title is coming out this August, and it looks to build off Revolution in a number of ways. To show all this off and give eager players a taste of what's to come, Eidos has released a new trailer today which reveals the basics of the plot and some of the mechanics the title will employ.
