Despite a rocky start and growing pains, The Elder Scrolls Online - ESO - is in its sixth year already, with a dozen DLCs, three expansions (one of which, Morrowind, is now included in ESO+ by default), and enough changes to make it an almost entirely different game. If you're returning to the game after an extended break or simply want to smooth out the learning curve, this guide is for you.
Barotrauma launches out of Early Access today! Developed by FakeFish & Undertow Games, and published by Daedalic Entertainment, Barotrauma is a tense 2D side-scroller where players must command a crew, craft equipment, fight aliens, and explore a strange new world while overcoming crisis and the unrelenting pressure of a frozen ocean.
ZED officially launches today! Developed by Eagre Games and published by Cyan Ventures, ZED is a casual narrative adventure game where players enter into the dreamscape of an artist's fragmented memories to create a final work of art for a special person in his life.
So if I told you that a video game existed where you needed to stop an evil intergalactic bird creature from destroying the universe, you'd probably say something like "well, that sounds like a video game, alright." What if I told you that this bird creature - lets call him Glorkon - has gained this universe-destroying power from the energy he'd sucking out of your dogs that he kidnapped. Oh also, he gets that power from jamming the dogs into his eye sockets. Lost yet? Well, that's Trover Saves the Universe for you.
Warhammer: Chaosbane, the latest title in the expansive Warhammer franchise, has just launched (unless you have the top two editions, then it launched for you on May 31st already), allowing players to jump headfirst and gaze into the horror that spreads through the underbelly of the empire. In between trying to stop themselves from clawing their eyes out, the would-be heroes will be delighted to know that it isn't the end of their arduous road to glory (or violent death at the hands of Chaos monsters that enjoy a bit of hero tartare).
Elsweyr, the newest expansion for The Elder Scrolls Online, launches today! This expansion is adding the Necromancer character class, Dragons, and Elsweyr--the Khajiit homeland which has been ravaged by warfare! Also, this expansion kicks off the Season of the Dragon, which is a year-long adventure told across a chapter and three DLC game packs!
With the launch of PixARK, the already impressive ARK universe expands to include a game that's as complex as it is colorful. The Minecraft-style graphics represent a distinctly ARK-like experience, where survival is very much not assured and figuring out how to survive into the late game requires a good amount of skill and effort. We've put this little guy to try and smooth out the learning curve.
