Wargaming's popular giant ship battler is coming to consoles sometime in 2019 under the World of Warships: Legends banner. Like World of Tanks it brings naval combat to life with real ships recreated in stunning detail. Until now only playable on PC, Wargaming is planning an Alpha Test for World of Warships: Legends next month.
As the first single-player MechWarior game in well over a decade, we've been looking forward to the planned December release window of MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries for quite sometime. Taking to Twitter to make the announcement, the delay into 2019 is to ensure "the best single-player Mechwarrior experience to date."
To celebrate the start of Season 14 of Diablo III which introduces the Season of Greed - which doubles all Treasure Goblin spawns - the team at Xbox are giving away a Custom Diablo III Season of Greed Xbox One X console. Which looks incredible. And although posting this as news kind of diminishes our chances of winning this - it's simply too good not to share.
If the name Shadowgun Legends doesn't ring a bell, that's because the online shooter is currently only available on mobile devices - where it has found quite a bit of success. Thanks in part to its breadth of content that includes hundreds of story missions, PvP, guilds, a social hub, RPG progression, and more. As for the Nintendo Switch version, what we see so far looks pretty impressive.
Alongside the very first discount where PUBG or PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is now 33% off on Steam. As for the milestones, they're pretty huge - especially because it's been a while since we've reported on PUBG numbers. In September of last year we reported that 10 millions copies of PUBG had been sold. Well, that number now sits at 50 million.

Where teaming up with friends to play any of the modes will net you a cool 50% bonus to all XP earned. Which will no doubt lead to more chances to unlock the sweet Goblin Junkrat skin. As the first Warcraft Battleground to join the Nexus, Alterac Pass is a riff on the classic WoW location with nods to both Warcraft III and fun new mechanics like freeing prisoners and taking out an enemy General.
And by under we mean just under, at $24.95 AUD. And sure a bunch of the 20+ titles that will be included when the new range hits retail shelves on July 18, this news also doubles as a reminder that we're well into the second half of the PlayStation 4 life-cycle. Plus, another reason to finally getting around to playing both Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor.
It may not be the best in the series but as it brought Monkey Island into the brand new world of fully 3D gaming Escape from Monkey Island is still very much a solid LucasArts adventure. And now for the first time, it's available DRM-free via GOG.com.
As one of the truly great games released so far this year, developer 11 bit studios is hard at work creating new content for Frostpunk.

With the regular season of Overwatch League concluding this past weekend, came the hard-earned victory for Los Angeles Valiant (27-13) as they defeated the New York Excelsior (34-6) at Blizzard Arena Los Angeles. This one definitely feels good for Australian fans as the Los Angeles Valiant is home to two Aussies – Support Player, Scott ‘Custa’ Kennedy and Assistant Coach, Jordan ‘Gunba’ Graham.
Which on paper is such a ridiculous concept that it can't help but be a winner. A returning mode, Tank Football's new 3v3 matches come equipped with several improvements including new specialist roles for tanks and Italian goalkeeping legend Gianluigi "Gigi" Buffon as commentator. Plus, we also get a pretty amazing live-action trailer.
As mentioned by creator Michel Ancel on Instagram, the team is planning to have a playable beta of Beyond Good & Evil 2 at the end of 2019.

Including the championship 2009 Brawn BGP-001 driven by that year’s F1 World Champion Jenson Button and Rubens Barrichello, and the 2003 Williams FW25.

The long awaited refresh of the Xbox Live Avatar system, which dates back the Xbox 360 days, is set to make its reappearance later tonight for Xbox Insiders.

Say what now? Yeah, during the behind close doors hands-on preview of Cyberpunk 2077 a few Australians got concerned about the future of the game thanks to its depiction of drug use. And how it can offer power-ups or improved abilities. Full frontal nudity aside, the Australian ratings board has a real problem with drugs, which most likely led to the recent ban/classification refusal of We Happy Few.
Where we continue our look at the best that E3 2018 had to offer - which is no small feat considering just how much goodness was there. Games we were given a chance to experience, play and just be exposed to. Counting down 5 - 3 today, no doubt you might guess what number one might be - but until then be sure to mark these games on your calendar.
