Released back in December 2016, Steep will be getting some new DLC come the end of October. With this new content players will get to visit the Alaska X Games Village to compete in the game's most epic snow park where you will be challenged to master real-life X Games disciplines.

Once again we have news of THQ Nordic acquiring an IP, this time from Atari Europe SAS. The two IPs purchased this time are for Alone in the Dark and Act of War.

Act of War though is an RTS game with a fine-grained story crafted by Dale Brown.

In 2016 Nintendo announced its NES Classic Edition, and a year later the SNES Classic Edition, both of which have proven to be great successes and it appears Sony took notice. The company has announced it will be releasing PlayStation Classic, a recreation of the original PlayStation that will have 20 of the console's games onboard. We do not have a complete list of the games yet, but Sony has listed five already:

  • Final Fantasy VII
  • TEKKEN 3
  • R4: Ridge Racer Type 4
  • Jumping Flash!
  • Wild Arms

It comes with two controllers with the same design as the originals, so you will be able to enjoy local multiplayer with friends. Like the Nintendo classic consoles, the PlayStation Classic will have HDMI out and be powered over USB, though it will not include a USB AC adapter.

The PlayStation Classic will release on December 3 and cost $99.99, though pre-orders are up now.

No, this is not April 1, but I think some may initially think it is. Ubisoft has announced it has worked with R/GA to create the Spartan skill for Amazon Alexa, allowing you to ask questions of your Echo devices and get the responses in the voice and swagger of a Spartan hero. Alexios will tell you the weather, a joke, and can add events to your calendar as well starting today, but come October 2, when those who pre-ordered the Gold Edition of the game get early access, you will be able to ask for historical information about various locations in Assassin's Creed Odyssey.

In addition to this Alexa skill, a limited edition Amazon Echo Plus has also been produced. This special version of the device is meant to resemble a Spartan helmet. If you want to try to win one of these devices, you will just need to share the video on Facebook, which you can find at the source link below, along with competition rules.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey releases on October 5 for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. If you are also looking for a new graphics card, AMD has its Raise the Game promotion going on currently that will get you this game along with Strange Brigade and Star Control: Origins, which releases on September 20, when you purchase an AMD RX 570, RX 580, RX Vega 56, or RX Vega 64 card.

Author: Guest_Jim_*


Today CD Projekt Red, the company behind the Witcher series of games and GWENT, has announced another title set in the Witcher game universe: Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales. In this game, players will follow Meve, a war-veteran queen of Lyria and Rivia who is now facing a Nilfgaardian invasion. Her journey will take players to parts of the world not seen before as we go on thought-provoking quests with rich, multidimensional characters. As you play, you will be collecting resources to grow her army and fight enemies using the system present in GWENT: The Witcher Card Game. Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales will release for PC on October 23, with its Xbox One and PlayStation 4 releases coming on December 4.

Also coming on October 23 is the Homecoming update for GWENT: The Witcher Card Game that will bring with it many significant changes. These changes will be to improve the game's elements as we originally saw them in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and to incorporate player feedback from the Public Beta. One of the changes we will see is a rework of the game's board to be 3D with two distinct rows for the battlefield. A redesign of the game's visuals to fit with the world of the Witcher, a new deck-building experience, and new card mechanics are also coming.

Author: Guest_Jim_*


Next month Red Dead Redemption 2 will release for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and with luck we will see it announced for PC before long as well. In any case, Rockstar has put up a page introducing us to a number of the locations players will be visiting in the game with pictures and brief descriptions. These include Valentine, a rough-and-tumble town with livestock auctions that bring all manner of people to it looking for money and a good time. Annesburg is another town to visit and perhaps help the miners who lead hard lives on the little pay they earn bringing up coal from the pit. Saint Denis lies on a major trade route, so you will find many more cultures and classes here, from laborers and beggars to businessmen and socialites. Rhodes wishes it were as impressive, being prim and proper on the surface but filled with corruption and tensions below thanks to the Braithwaites and Grays, feuding plantation families. Strawberry, a logging town has a new mayor, hoping to make it a cultural beacon to bring in wealthy tourists. Among the snow-covered peaks of the Grizzlies of Ambarino is Mount Hagen that stands over Lake Isabela and Beartooth Beck, the main pass through to mountain range to meet the Dakota River. Finally, in Lagras the people take care of themselves largely, making little money from fishing and serving as guides for travelers.

Red Dead Redemption 2 releases October 26.

Author: Guest_Jim_*


In less than a month, Assassin's Creed Odyssey will release, and now we are getting information on the post-launch plans for this title. It will follow a new episodic format, with Season Pass and free narrative content coming on a regular basis, so players will have a constant flow of stories to experience. There will also be free in-game events to challenge players with tougher enemies and daily quests.

The free story missions all players will receive will be called The Lost Tales of Greece, which players can experience as they come out or wait until all of the episodes are available. In between the release of the episodes though will be episodic questlines that will have players meeting familiar and new characters. The recurring in-game events will pit players against a new epic ship or mercenary as part of daily and weekly contracts. Like with Assassin's Creed Origins, there will be a Discovery Tour mode for players to explore the environment, learning about Ancient Greece without needing to worry about the normal conflict present in the game world. There will also be new monsters and mythical creatures coming with updates and a New Game Plus mode.

For those who are getting the Season Pass separately or as part of the Gold, Ultimate, Spartan, and Pantheon editions of the game, you will also get the two story arcs Legacy of the First Blade and The Fate of Atlantis as well as Assassin's Creed III Remastered and Assassin's Creed III Liberation Remastered. With the new version of Assassin's Creed III players will be getting all of its DLC and both remasters will feature improved graphics with support for 4K and HDR on capable platforms, higher-resolution textures, improved lighting, and more.

Circling back a bit, Legacy of the First Blade will allow the players to follow the adventure of the first hero to wield the hidden blade, the Assassin's iconic weapon. It will also explore why the Assassin's choose to keep to the shadows. Its episodes will start releasing in December and will be released about six weeks apart. With Fate of Atlantis players will face godly creatures and uncover the secrets of the legendary city in an adventure that will bring them closer to Greek mythology and the First Civilization. It will start releasing in Spring 2019, with episodes coming out about six weeks agpart.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey is set to release on October 5, but those who get the Gold, Collector's, or Ultimate Edition will have access starting October 2. The Season Pass, if purchased separately, will cost $39.99.

Kingdom of Amalur: Reckoning released in 2012 and though it received positive reviews, it was not as successful as it needed to be to pay back the loans that fed its development. Now it looks like the IP may get some new life in it as THQ Nordic has acquired it and other assets, including those for the abandoned MMORPG Copernicus that was also to be set in Amalur. Given THQ Nordic's record of revitalizing games and franchises that were left in limbo or abandoned by other developers, this could be very interesting and promising news for those who enjoyed the game.

If you have been looking forward to getting your hands on Battlefield V, sadly it appears you will need to wait. EA has decided to push the launch back to November 20, from the original October release date. The reason cited is the responses the developers have been getting from the closed alphas as well as at E3 and Gamescom demoes. While the feedback has been positive, the company wants the extra time to continue to incorporate feedback, including from the open beta starting September 6. As that beta will potentially allow millions more people to play the game in its current state, there could be a wealth of new feedback needing to be gone through.

Announced at the beginning of the month, Middle-earth: Shadow of War Definitive Edition is now available. This version of the game includes all of the DLC, and naturally all of the free updates and improvements it has received since its original launch. It is available on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 for $59.99, but the disc only has the main game on it, so the remainder requires an Internet connection to download.

I took the time to review the game and all of its DLC, but this was before it received a number of significant changes, including the removal of the market and micro-transactions and an overhaul to its end game. The Shadow Wars final act was changed to be less of a grind, though the Endless Siege keeps the original design for those who want it. The level cap was also increased with Prestige skills allowing players to continue investing the points they earn. I found these changes to be a very good improvement when I was playing with them pleasant.
