The next patch for The Division will bring the game up to version 1.1 and in doing so will introduce a new end-game challenge, and the game's first 'Incursion'. But fans of The Division already know that, the icon has been sitting there on the map screen since launch. Today though we've got the full patch notes for the upcoming update, where there's details on all the new stuff coming plus some great fixes and changes that should make playing the game once you reach Level 30 a hell of a lot better.
Trying to sell VR to people without giving them direct access to a unit like the impressive HTC Vive is a difficult thing. Images of people smiling whilst wearing a headset and holding onto a controller just doesn't cut it. As that's one step away from those sort of empty promotional images of families sitting on a couch enjoying multiplayer gaming as a single FamilyUnit.Exe. To tackle this issue Valve has probably done the best job we've seen so far of selling the prospect of Virtual Reality, with a new genuinely impressive video demonstration.
Brisbane-based Defiant Development's card-based hit Hand of Fate is getting a sequel, and is due for release early 2017 on Windows, Mac, and Linux. Called Hand of Fate 2, the game will once again pit players against a number of card-based trials, featuring action-adventure style combat and a slew of new cards and board game events to tackle.
The second bit of seasonal Fallout 4 DLC, Wasteland Workshop, is set to be released next week on April 12.

In which we get to see Nathan drive around a jaw-dropping exotic location, explore a hidden cave behind a waterfall, and explore with the freedom rarely seen in this style of game. Yep, this unedited look at Uncharted 4's Madagascar location is a wonder to behold, and if you're a fan of the series you'll most likely spend the entirety of it fighting the urge to just stop the video and go back to patiently waiting for the release of the full game.
A fan-made remake of the original NES classic The Legend of Zelda, in voxel form, has appeared online. And it's entirely playable within a browser! It's impressive to say the least, and even though parts of the game are missing and still to be added, its well worth checking out in its current form. Because like with any project of this nature, there's a good chance it might get taken down for copyright infringement.
What's better than playing the Overwatch Beta on PC? Well, that would be getting to play Overwatch with a controller in hand, kicking back on a couch, on a big screen TV. At Blizzard no less. It's no mystery that Overwatch is headed to both PC and console, and on a recent trip Blizzard's Irvine-based HQ Adam Mathew went hands-on with the console version for the first time and spoke to the game's Director, Jeff Kaplan about all things Overwatch.
I tried again, and got no further than the first place you can travel to from the game's initial portal before I was throwing the controller around and skipping back to Quantum Break. Joaby, however, loves this shit. He lives for it, and so was kind enough to impart his review experience along to you, the AusGamers punters.
For all intents and purposes Baldur's Gate: Siege of Dragonspear is an expansion to the classic RPG first released in 1998 that bridges the gap between the climactic events of that game and its year 2000 sequel, Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn. As an expansion to the recently released Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition from Beamdog it also serves to bridge the gap until the eventual release of Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition. And how!
The first Overwatch character to join the line-up of Blizzard's all-star Heroes of the Storm is Tracer, the cockney accented twin-gun wielding shooter of, err, bad guys. Coming April 19 exclusively to those who pre-purchase Overwatch on PC, and later in the month for everyone else, Blizzard has released a video of Tracer in action. And she looks pretty much the same as she does in Overwatch, but somehow a little cooler when time-phasing around and shooting from an isometric perspective.
