Apart from the fact that the game will feature thousands of different arm and fighter combinations, we now know what modes will ship with the game. Plenty! Including matches where two teams of two can battle it out whilst trying to avoid hitting each other, mini-games that provide a spin on stuff like beach volleyball and basketball, and several online modes including ranked play.
When it was announced for Nintendo Switch, based on the multiplayer-only stuff that we saw for a game that was a sequel to a multiplayer-only shooter, a lot of us assumed that Splatoon 2 was more special edition than proper sequel. Well, thanks to a new trailer showcasing the game's single-player campaign we can probably put that idea to bed. Splatoon 2 is every bit a fully formed sequel, and a fantastic looking one at that.
Which is less of a showcase of a large open world to explore and more a look at some of the different, and quite impressive, locations in the game.

After announcing the end of Closed Beta invites going out last week, comes word from CD Projekt RED that the Public Beta for GWENT: The Witcher Card Game is scheduled to begin on May 24.

In that it will feature the ability to customise and create your own Sonic hero, choosing from a number of different animal types including Wolf, Dog, Cat, and of course, Hedgehog. With each offering a different special ability along the lines of 'Keeps one ring after being hit', 'Blows away enemies with a homing attack', and 'lies high with double jump abilities'. Plus, you can make you own Sonic creation wear glasses.
Thanks in part to D.Va joining the ranks as a new hero, but mainly the latest quest that rewards players upon completion with -- get this, 10 x Loot Chests for Heroes of the Storm and 10 x Loot Boxes for Overwatch. Yeah, a pretty tasty deal. Having only recently garnered enough courage to face off against humans as opposed to AI, I've been having a blast with Heroes of the Storm of late. And I can't wait to hop into D.Va's mech and... maybe come out victorious.
