Doom-inspired Jupiter Hell announces full release date for August

It may be all heavy metal and shotguns and space demons but no no, this isn’t Doom. Jupiter Hell is the distinctly not-Doom turn-based roguelike that’s been in early access for a year and a half. It’s nearly reached the end of a run, but there’s always a new run after, isn’t there? Jupiter Hell is leaving early access for full launch in August, but the developers say they’ve got plans for post-launch updates too. Oh, and a new update is out today.

In RPS’s Jupiter Hell early access review, it sounds like a good bit of demon slaying ripping and tearing.

“Environmental features like exploding barrels not only honour the hallowed FPS that inspired Jupiter Hell, but also amplify this sense of dynamic movement,” Steve Hogarty says. “You can kite enemies to lure them towards barrels before manually targeting them to make everything pop at once, which is just as gratifying as it is in any other genre.”

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege is heading into its sixth year, and over the weekend, Ubisoft dropped a load of details of what’s arriving in the tactical FPS over the coming weeks. The new season, Crimson Heist, will kick off the Year Six festivities by adding a new explosive gadget, reworks to the Border map, and new operator Flores, who has some rather nice red glasses. He weirdly reminds me a bit of Dr Eggman, mostly because they’re both robotics dudes with round coloured specs.
