Civilization 6’s leaked Leader Pass confirmed; Lincoln arrives next week

A whole bunch of classic Civilization leaders are coming back for Civilization 6’s upcoming Leader Pass, devs Firaxis have confirmed. You can expect 18 more leaders spread out over six DLC pack releases between November 21st and March 2023, 12 of whom are new leaders. Another six will be “new takes” on existing leaders from previous games in the Civ series. The Leader Pass’ existence was leaked by accident last week when promo art for the DLC appeared on the mobile version of the Civ website, before it was removed. Read more

Marvel’s Midnight Suns new trailer explains how to make Spider-Man from a deck of cards

I’ve been experiencing Marvel fatigue for, oh, around seven years now. To compensate, I decided to watch Marvel’s Midnight Suns latest trailer while pretending it wasn’t about Marvel superheroes, but just a Firaxis-made tactics game with character classes who have wildly divergent skillsets. The video focuses on the spider-powered class – and heck, it does look pretty cool. Read more

The Revamped PS Plus Lineup Is Stacked, Once You Make Sense Of It

With the big PS Plus relaunch on the horizon (get your Zero Dawn jokes out of here), we finally have an idea of what exactly to expect. Today, in a blog post, Sony outlined everything—games, streaming offerings, a partnership with Ubisoft—coming to the service. It’s a lot. Let’s break it down. PS Plus 2.0, first officially announced in March, is a total revamp of the long-running PS Plus service, essentially folding all of PlayStation’s disparate subscriptions into one. It’s available in three tiers, which you can read more about right here, but the general breakdown is:Though the option to play…

Supermassive’s horror game The Quarry will have 186 different endings

How do you want your ending to play out? The Quarry, the upcoming narrative horror game from Supermassive Games, will have multiple endings. And when we say multiple, well, we really mean 186. Each ending will depend upon choices you make in the game with the non-playable characters. These endings could result in life or death, as the story will change depending on said choices – all of which are included in a 1,000-page script. Speaking with IGN, the game’s director, Will Byles, discussed the amount of work that goes into such a “mathematical nightmare”. And the large amount of…

Tales from the Borderlands sequel revealed, arriving later this year

The sequel will be developed in-house by Gearbox and feature fresh characters. The episodic, story-driven Borderlands spinoff, Tales from the Borderlands, is receiving a sequel. The follow-up is to be expected later this year, with an official announcement for the game coming in summer. The teaser came from Gearbox CEO, Randy Pitchford, at PAX East 2022.

YouTube Streamer With 6.9M Followers Banned After Valorant Tirade Clip Surfaces

In maybe the swiftest escalation of 2022, gaming YouTuber and experimental rapper IShowSpeed was banned from Valorant (and other Riot Games titles) and potentially YouTube for demeaning a female player in Riot’s tactical hero shooter. IShowSpeed has since apologized for his behavior, saying he was “not having a good day” in the clip that went viral and appears to have sparked the ban. While moderation was speedy, the entire debacle has sparked discussion around trash talk in games, and who gets a second chance when they’re young and reckless.

Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands review – Borderlands gets a magic makeover

Tiny Tina runs her own TTRPG campaign where you are the hero in a fully-fledged Borderlands spin-off, but the fun falls flat rather quickly. Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is – to both its benefit and to its detriment – a Borderlands game in shiny new packaging. The concept was promising, but given all that Gearbox had to work with, it didn’t really deliver. I have to admit that in the lead up to Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, I didn’t actually feel that hyped. The introduction of dragons and magic caught my interest, for sure, but I was still riding the Elden Ring…

The game takes place on the last day of Summer Camp and the teenage counselors of Hackett’s Quarry decide to throw a party to celebrate. Unfortunately for them, things take a turn for the worse as blood-drenched locals and something “far more sinister” turns…
