The search to find a game you want to play can be ‘tyre-some’, but lucky for you Sumo Leamington announced during ID@Xbox that 60-player kart racer Stampede: Racing Royale will be launching in early access this summer, which caught the attention of plenty of media and racing fans alike.

In The Chinese Room’s Still Wakes the Deep, protagonist Cameron “Caz” McLeary and fellow crew members are in for quite a surprise as the story unfolds within the Beira D oil rig – and last month we finally revealed the voice actors behind some of the characters you’ll be meeting, as well Alex Newman who will be the voice of Caz.
