Described as the largest expansion to date for The Elder Scrolls Online, Morrowind will take players to the legendary island of Vvardenfell. The home of giant mushrooms, misty river towns, weird creatures, and plenty of magic. After the recent cinematic trailer, today we've got our first proper look at the new location. And yeah, it definitely looks and feels like Morrowind.
Okay, so remember how we reported on the rumour that Doomfist probably won't be the next hero to join the ranks and how it might be a Greek Character. Well, scrap that noise, because thanks to a rather cryptic new post by Blizzard we're now of the belief that it'll be a prodigious child's robot. Or, robots. Thanks to a post over on the Overwatch Blog, an interview with 11 year-old inventor Efi Oladele of Numbani, the speculation timer has effectively been reset.
Strewth! Colour us cobbers surprised, because we weren't expecting to see us Aussie drongos making an appearance in Civilization VI anytime soon-erydoo. That's right, coming soon to the excellent Civilization VI, Australia! The land down under, beaches, beer, cork hats, and so forth. Okay, so it's easy to poke fun at Australia's isolation from the rest of the world, but this news is pretty damn cool considering how great a game Civilization VI is.
Remember all those campaign promises about no rise in GST? And how as a nation we could collectively look over some light human rights violations in order to keep prices "as they is." Well, time to sharpen those pitch forks, because Valve and Steam will be implementing GST into sales starting in July. Okay, so it's not exactly the end of the world. And this is something we've been expecting for a while. But still, it's a good time as any to start complaining.
Free for all players, the Bretonnia Race Pack DLC for Total War: Warhammer will be made available next week on February 28 giving players access to new Lords, units, and faction specific features. For those that need a Warhammer refresher, Bretonnia are the race of fancy Knights high-born Ladies that also speak in French accents. They were a antagonistic or friendly presence in the core game when it launched last year, and their unique positioning on the overall world map should make for a nice change.
The physical releases for Nintendo Switch games will come on cartridges similar to those that pop into your Nintendo 3DS, albeit much larger in their respective storage capacity. Compared to optical media no doubt the production of these game cards/cartridges would be a lot more expensive to produce, and in keeping up with modern devices digital version will also be made available. Here's a quick rundown of the expected download sizes.
Terry Crews fans may need to wait a bit longer before the debut of Doomfist as the next hero to join the ever-popular Overwatch. In a new post over at the official forums, Game Director Jeff Kaplan replied to a fan question regarding the next character with the rather cryptic "it's not who you think it is." Which we assume is a direct reference to Doomfist, a character that has been teased multiple times in the past.
Available March 23 for Xbox One and Windows 10. The new DLC pack, part of the Season Pass, introduces three new story-driven multi-part operations to the game dealing with smart cars, nano-tech, human experimentation, and the Russian mafia. So par for the course for ol' Marcus Holloway and the DeadSec crew. This is the first substantial bit of story content for the game, one of 2016's highlights, offering up hours of new content.
When the original Halo Wars debuted in 2009 many were not only wondering if a traditional RTS game would work on a console, but also if the Halo franchise could successfully transition to another genre. The answer to both questions was a definite yes, with the game quickly becoming a favourite among fans. Here we are, several years later, and the long-awaited arrival of Halo Wars 2 has us strangely asking the same questions. But this time with the added word 'still'. Does Halo as an RTS experience still work?
