Cobalt is coming to PC in October

Cobalt is a sweet couch arena brawler with excellent rockets. Though Microsoft made it sound as though we were going to lose it to Xbox exclusivity, Cobalt will in fact come to Steam this October. If you bought the prototype edition ages ago, you'll get a Steam key for the finished version free.

It's been a while since we touched the old playable build, which is available to try and buy here, The game is made by Oxeye and published by Mojang, who made that Minecraft game you may have heard of.

Disclosure: chief word officer at Mojang Owen Hill used to work here at PC Gamer. I haven't seen him for years on account of him living in Sweden, which is good because I think I still owe him at least one beer.


Tom stopped being a productive human being when he realised that the beige box under his desk could play Alpha Centauri. After Deus Ex and Diablo 2 he realised he was cursed to play amazing PC games forever. He started writing about them for PC Gamer about six years ago, and is now UK web ed.
