Final Fantasy 15 gets four more story DLCs in 2019

Final Fantasy XV has already seen plenty of post-launch DLC content, including a number story episodes and even a multiplayer mode. While this is much more than the average single-player RPG sees, developer Square Enix has revealed that it has plans to continue supporting the game well into 2019, with new content later this year, and four additional story-focused episodes next year.

Sea of Thieves just revealed how it’ll prevent griefing

With the hype surrounding Sea of Thieves' launch beginning to die down a bit (and the game's server stabilizing as a result), Rare can begin focusing more on improving the game through post-launch content and updates. Rare has been collecting player feedback about the game, and in upcoming patches will look to fix some of the problem areas Sea of Thieves fans have been reporting. If you've been a victim of brig abuse, then take heart, because figuring out a solution seems to be pretty high up on Rare's to-do list.

PUBG War mode silently launches for custom games

PUBG War mode silently launches for custom games

Yesterday, PUBG received a new limited-time game mode called Tequila Sunrise, but it looks like it didn't launch alone. Apparently, a second new mode called "War" has been added to the game, though you won't hear about it from the development team. There's no mention of War mode anywhere in PUBG's Steam announcements or on Twitter, so it seems that this mode is getting something of a quiet launch.

Razer Game Store sells games with rewards for each purchase

Razer Game Store sells games with rewards for each purchase

Steam has totally changed the way the world buys and consumes games. While still in existence, physical discs and boxes have become more collectors’ items rather than essential installation media. Almost all major game publishers have tried to wean their customers away from Steam via their own stores with little success (except via exclusivity). Razer, most famous for its gaming peripherals, has also launched its own digital game distribution platform and it’s dangling perks for each purchase to get gamers on board.

Diablo’s Deckard Cain is coming to Heroes of the Storm (yes, really)

Being a MOBA featuring characters from Blizzard's various franchises, Heroes of the Storm has its share of not-necessarily-heroic characters. For example, there's Murky the Murloc, representing everyone's favorite low-level enemy from World of Warcraft, and also Probius, a Protoss probe from StarCraft given a full range of abilities that make it just as capable as any of the other legendary heroes from the Blizzard universe. The next of these unlikely heroes was revealed today, and it's Deckard Cain from the Diablo series.

Fortnite gets vending machines and lots of explosions with new update

Fortnite version 3.4 dropped last week, bringing some new content and a number of big fixes with it, but today, Epic Games is tossing more into the mix.

PUBG Savage map opens to squads as more keys released

PUBG Savage map opens to squads as more keys released

Yesterday, the PUBG team sent the game's newest map live on a closed experimental test server. This new map is exciting for a variety of reasons, but most notably because of its size. "Savage," as it's being called, is a tiny 4x4 map, meaning that games should be a lot more hectic with more frequent firefights than a larger map like Erangel.

How the Steam Machines failed in the gaming industry

How the Steam Machines failed in the gaming industry

Two days ago, Valve removed any trace of Steam Machines from its store. If it weren’t for the media coverage, people might not have even remembered they still existed. Except for the hardest core of PC gamers, most have probably presumed Valve’s overnight sensation to have been long gone. And now, it really is. What was first seen as the revolution of PC gaming has now become almost an embarrassing footnote in gaming history. What happened and why did Valve fail so miserably? It all boils down to trying to hit too many birds with just one stone.

Square Enix is fixing Chrono Trigger’s awful PC port

Back in February, Square Enix made a bunch of JRPG fan very happy by finally bringing Chrono Trigger to Steam. That excitement was quickly quashed by the realization that the PC version was actually a port of Chrono Trigger's mobile release. While the mobile version of Chrono Trigger worked well enough on phones, it didn't translate all that well to PC, and fans of the game were quick to lodge their displeasure.
