This is The Final Station and it’s coming to PC via Steam this summer. It’s a bit like the excellent Snowpiercer movie, travel through the dying world on your train, but unlike the movie your train stops so you have to search through infected stations for parts to keep the chuff-chuff moving.
A deathmatch PvP mode is coming to Dying Light on PC thanks to modders.
Check out an hour of Wesker Mode in the soon to be released Resident Evil 0.

“The Most Important Game of Our Time Has Arrived” according to this press release, and it’s Ominbus, “the world’s premier next-to-last gen physics game about the most powerful bus in the universe that can’t stop or even slow down for reasons incomprehensible to the simple human mind.”

Microsoft has said Xbox One won’t be getting a background music feature “before summer.”
And Finally, Dung Beetles are to be added to ARK: Survival Evolved and yes, they will eat dino poo. “The Dung Beetle is a wondrous organic biofactory that eats excrement and other useless waste to then metabolize and produce burnable oil that can power generators and fertilize crops! Regarded as the perfect tame for cleaning up around the tribe’s dino-pen!”
They are joined by one of my favourite dinosaurs, the Dimetrodon, and proving that developers Wild Card have their priorities correct, the latest patch also brings craftable Beer Kegs.
