Another year, another stripped back edition of FIFA for Nintendo Switch owners. We reviewed FIFA 20 last year, and although we liked it, it was little more than a roster and kit update of FIFA 19. And so it continues with FIFA 21 Legacy Edition. You can be sure of a decent game of football, but you won’t find Volta Football or any of the career mode and gameplay improvements coming to other consoles.

Of the week’s other Nintendo Switch new releases, we’re most eager to see how Falcon Age performs. Outerloop’s game – which was critical hit on PS4 and PS VR – marries a thoughtful story with action, crafting, and video game falconry.

We’re also excited for Team17’s new Escapists spin-off, The Survivalists. As you might expect, the studio is adding humour, personality, accessibility and fun to the survival sandbox genre. Other new Nintendo eShop releases include Game Dev Tycoon, The Watchmaker, and Adventures of Chris.

Here’s the full lineup of confirmed new Nintendo Switch games. We’ll updated this article throughout the week with any late additions.

You can also catch up with this week’s new Xbox One and PlayStation 4 releases. And why not add Thumbsticks to your Twitter and Facebook feeds for daily video game news updates.

About three years ago, I went to a video game expo in Birmingham. It was a packed event, and the show floor featured some of the season’s biggest games. As is typical at these shows, most attendees trudged around with glum looks of resignation as they searched for a new game to excite them. I recall that Sonic Forces, in particular, wasn’t doing it for anyone. The happiest person I saw was a tower of a man who strolled into the EA booth. He stood tall, cracked his massive knuckles, and exclaimed: “It’s FIFA time!”

And that’s the magic of FIFA. The franchise is easy to moan about, with its two-steps-forward, one-step-backwards approach to gameplay improvements – and a grotty reliance on FUT microtransactions – but it genuinely excites players. The series captures the essence of football, faults and all, and this year’s entry looks no different. Back of the box additions include a slew of new Career Mode features, plus enhanced dribbling and off-the-ball positioning.

Also coming to PlayStation 4 is The Survivalists, the new Escapists spin-off from Team17. It looks like being a humorous and accessible take on the popular survival genre. Other new PS4 releases include Nickelodeon Kart Racers 2: Grand Prix and motorbike racing game, Ride 4.

Here’s the full lineup of titles confirmed so far. Check back throughout next week for updates on any late additions.

EA’s football behemoth returns this week with FIFA 21. As ever, there’s a shopping list of improvements and new features, most intriguing of which is the revamped Career Mode. New simulation elements let players take greater control of mid-game tactics, shape player development, and improve player attributes using the new Active Training System. On the pitch, you can look forward to improved opponent AI, dribbling, collision detection, and off-the-ball positioning. EA Access members can play the game from Tuesday, and the rest of us can take to the field on Friday.

Our second highlight is Team17’s The Survivalists. This spin-off off from the popular Escapists series sees players stranded on a procedurally generated island. The blend of exploration, crafting, and building is familiar enough, but the studio’s off-kilter sense of humour and eye for detail should make the game stand out a crowded genre.

Other new relases include Ministry of Broadcast, 9th Dawn III: Shadow of Erthil, and The Watchmaker.

Each new game can be purchased from the Xbox One digital games store or the Microsoft web store. We’ll update this post throughout the week with any late additions to the lineup.

Insiders will get to test the much-wanted VR support for Microsoft Flight Simulator starting in late October or early November, but the requirements are strict.

Insiders will get to test the much-wanted VR support for Microsoft Flight Simulator starting in late October or early November, but the requirements are strict.

Head of Microsoft Flight Simulator Jorg Neumann took to Twitch for their ‘Monthly Developer Live Q&A’ and confirmed when we can first expect to get our hands on the VR closed beta of the smash success game. 

The VR support has apparently been in development for over a year now after fan feedback in 2019 and is ready for feedback.

“We are planning to do a closed beta for Microsoft Flight Sim VR starting in late October, early November, somewhere around that time,” he said.

You can sign up now, but doing so has a few rather specific requirements to satisfy:

Did you survive all of the requirements? Likely not. Don’t fret, though. You won’t be alone. The base game is already one of the most demanding PC games you can run today, so don’t expect VR support to go easy on your PC. It might save you money on your heating bills.

Expect other additions to come soon. Features like shared cockpits – so you can have a true simulator experience – will be added to the insider programme. The U.S. will also see the free update treatment that Japan received on September 29th. It included the addition of high-resolution 3D photogrammetry for six cities and hand-crafted landmarks. 

My Vive headset is currently held together with sellotape, prayers, and frequent expletives, so I’ve personally yet to decide whether I’ll don them for all my flight sim, finding-my-own-house purposes.

Staff can redeem the latest game from Bossa Studios using their NHS email address to simulate their job being enjoyable in these hard times.

NHS staff can get a free copy Surgeon Simulator 2 from Bossa Studios and simulate their job being enjoyable in these hard times.

NHS workers have received an outpouring of support from companies during the COVID-19 pandemic with freebies and discounts aplenty.

The latest to join them is the mostly well-received, August-released sequel from Bossa Studios, Surgeon Simulator 2. All you need is your NHS login and a free moment between October 1st – 22nd and you’re golden.

We need YOU to save Bob! From October 1st – 22nd, we’re making @surgeonsim free-to-keep for NHS workers.

It’s not the first gaming freebie bestowed to hard-working NHS staff everywhere. The Games for Carers initiative in April helped give out 85,000 games from 63 publishers to provide “some well-earned downtime”.

It’s a mighty generous freebie for sure, but whether real medical professionals really want to return to a virtual hospital seems like the question to me. The game’s boast of being the “least realistic surgical simulator ever made” certainly assuages most concerns, however.

David Miller from North Middlesex University Hospital even posted on Twitter to say it would “go nicely with the copy of Two Point Hospital I purchased to practice my ops management”. In that case, I’m sure we can all look forward to the excellent additional training Surgeon Simulator 2 will provide!

Surgeon yourself or not, be sure to give any NHS staff you know a nudge about the offer. Visit this page to request a key.

Nintendo and Velan Studios reveal more information about the upcoming Nintendo Switch AR game, Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit.

Nintendo and Velan Studios reveal more information about the upcoming Nintendo Switch AR game, Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit.

Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit races onto Nintendo Switch in two weeks, and the publicity machine is moving up a gear to reveal more about the game and its modes.

In Grand Prix mode, players can compete against Koopalings in 24 races held across eight tournaments. Despite the race taking place in the real world, familiar items from the long-running franchise all make an appearance. Mushrooms and will give the physical kart a speed boost, and a red shell will briefly stop it in its tracks. Other items include Bananas, Bloopers and Bullet Bills, which will apparently make the kart speed around the course automatically.

Environment themes – including underwater, volcanic and retro – also add a range of in-game hazards that can be negotiated by following the action on the Nintendo Switch’s screen.

Other game modes include Custom Race, in which you can add items and use household objects as obstacles, a Time Attack mode, and a Mirror Mode. The game also supports four-player local multiplayer, assuming you can round up enough friends with Switch consoles and their own Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit sets.

Nintendo says that an area of around 12x10ft is recommended for the best Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit experience. Course set up involves placing four gates – which are included in each pack – around your living space and then driving through each one to create a course layout. It appears that tracks can be as simple or as complex as you make them.

Each Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit pack includes one kart – with Mario or Luigi behind the wheel – four gates, two arrow signs, and a USB charging cable. The software itself is not included in the physical package and is available from the Nintendo eShop.

“Get your engines revved up for Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit, which launches just in time for the holidays. Whether you’ve always dreamed of turning your living room into Rainbow Road or want to prove once and for all that you’re the fastest racer among your friends and family, we hope this new Mario Kart experience brings smiles to people of all ages.”

If this all works – and the physical karts are capable of a bit of speed – this really could be quite something. The game is released for Nintendo Switch on October 16, 2020.
