Daily NewsRadar: Vampyr, Metal Gear Survive, and a free waterpark

Welcome to Thursday's Daily NewsRadar - all the essential information in one handy place. 

Vampyr has staked its claim to June 5 

Vampyr (opens in new tab), the blood-hungry RPG from the studio behind Life is Strange and one of the best new games of 2018, will be released on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on June 5. Set in early 20th-century London and starring a doctor with a taste for the red stuff, this is as gothic as gaming gets. Pre-order now and grab yourself some special weapons and threads in the process. We'll have more on the game soon.  

Get another crack at Metal Gear Survive next week 

Konami has announced that its Kojima-free MGS spin-off is getting a second beta on February 16, and this one will be on PS4, Xbox One, and Steam. Need to know more? Check out our preview.
