Conan Exiles - Debaucheries of Derketo DLC
Twinfinite reveals some new DLC for Conan Exiles called Debaucheries of Derketo. Screenshots at the link.
If you know who Derketo is in the Conan lore, you likely know what to expect, and there is that and more.
The set will focus on roleplay and aesthetics, so it’ll come with more elements to express yourself and less functional stuff.
Starting with the functional elements we get 11 new building pieces including handy Treehouse Foundations, Hanging Bridges and Rope Bridges in different sizes, and stages in different shapes.
29 new placeables will include a lot of what you need to build a tavern in Conan Exiles including counters, barrels, tables, stools, wineshelves, and more.
WoW - Classic Version Released
The classic version of World of Warcraft has been released yesterday and is supposed to give you back the game of World of Warcraft, before the updates came in.
From Wikipedia: Classic recreates the game in the state it was in after patch 1.12.1, September 2006, before the launch of The Burning Crusade expansion. The maximum level of the player characters is set to 60, all expansion content is absent, and all the gameplay mechanics of the original version have been exactly replicated. As the game's multiple expansions have dramatically changed the gameplay since the launch version, Classic greatly differs from the modern version of the game.
Elder Scrolls Online - Previews
Similarly, the new world activity that has continued the trend of finding replacements for the base games dark anchors are the Dragon hunts. Public events that will see a dragon spawn and eventually land allowing a group of players to engage in battle. These are much more challenging and demanding versions of public bosses which will require larger groups as well as those people playing their role, unlike public bosses which can be beaten by as little as a couple of experienced players. While these are very fun and rewarding experiences, you will quickly realize that they are not as dynamic as they first appear and even take place in predetermined areas. I have concerns about how manageable they will be once the initial population spike due to a new expansion subsides again. It gives off the impression that like their impact in the main campaign, they will end up just being there.
I realize that it seems like I am being very critical of the storytelling but I don’t mean to be, it isn’t bad by any means, it just doesn’t meet its full potential. In fact, much like everything before it, what is here is very well written and exceptionally voice acted to its usual high standard. Just make sure you are a fan of the Khajiit and their unique way of speaking, otherwise you will find yourself a little annoyed since they are the most prominent race in Elsweyr. Truthfully, where the main campaign is lacking, the experience is more than made up for in the side quests which are amongst the best we have seen yet. This is the furthest from your boring kill x, collect y quest template of past MMOs. You will come across a wide variety of colorful quest givers with their own personalities and agendas that will send you on what feel like meaningful tasks.
These aren’t you 2011 Skyrim dragons, nor are you the Dragonborn. The dragons in Elsweyr pose so much more of a threat, and you better make sure that you are prepared. These dragons believe that Elsweyr is theirs, and will make sure nobody is in the way to stop them.
The first time the player gets to see a dragon up close and personal is in the tutorial. The dragon is brought down by a horn the player blows that grounds them for a bit. A couple of the adepts and the player go to confront the dragon while it is grounded. It becomes rapidly apparent that the player is not yet ready to kill a dragon. The dragon is called away by a voice on the wind, and honestly, that was a lucky break. For the player and adeptorium alike.
Elder Scrolls Online - Elsweyr Interview
AusGamers interviewed the Rich Lambert, Creative Director at Zenimax Online Studios, about Elsweyr for The Elder Scrolls Online.
Alongside dragons and getting to see the homeland de los gatos, Elsewyr is also introducing a new playable class – the Necromancer. Something that, no matter the fantasy setting, fans always seem to be asking for. In the world of The Elder Scrolls, Necromancy has been a major presence throughout the history of Tamriel. “Necromancy is a really big thing in Elder Scrolls lore,” Rich confirms. “It’s kind of the precursor to the Mages Guild. The Mages Guild was started because there was infighting in the Psijic Order, around whether Necromancy was good or bad. One of the Daedric Lords is all about Necromancy. It’s something we've always wanted to do and something that our players have always wanted us to do. Even during the initial beta, they were asking, ‘Where's the Necromancer class?’”
Conan Exiles - Treasures of Turan DLC

The riches of the eastern kingdom of Turan await you, exiles! Our latest cosmetic DLC, the Treasures of Turan Pack, brings the opulent gilded palaces of Turanian culture right to your fingertips.loading...
With the Treasures of Turan Pack you can build palaces adorned with glittering statues, tame rhinos and elephants as pack animals, and dress in the finest Turanian silks and Phalanx armor.
Treasures of Turan comes with new building pieces, placeables, armor sets, weapon sets, warpaints and pets. As Turan is one of the wealthiest nations in Hyboria, it's fitting that this offers the most ostentatious gear and building pieces in Conan Exiles yet.

- 39 Turanian building pieces
- A full set of building pieces with the same stats as existing tier three

- Light, medium and heavy sets with an epic end-game version of each
- 9 new weapons in one Turanian weapon set
- Same power as iron weapons with an epic end-game version of each weapon
- 5 new Turanian warpaints

- 9 new placeables, such as the standing lamp and brazier
- Craft them at the new Turanian Artisan table
- 2 new exclusive pack animal pet skins
- Adorn your rhinos and elephants with rich and golden trimmings
All the new content from Turan is exclusive to this DLC and adds a host of new visual options but does not give any in-game advantage in power. All the new items have comparable stats to existing items.

Star Citizen - Chris Roberts Interview
VentureBeat interviewed Chris Roberts about why Star Citizen needed to raise 46 million in venture capital.
For me, I think the investment is very important for our independence, because it gives us the ability to take our time. We have the ability to take care of our marketing and not be beholden to someone else. For the future of the company, it’s a really good sign. And it’s a good sign to show that, even at this stage, the company is worth this kind of money. As we grow and get bigger, it should only increase beyond that. That should give people who are worried about whether we’ll be around tomorrow — they shouldn’t be so worried about that.
Elder Scrolls Online - Murkmire Review
The Elder Scrolls Online: Murkmire was reviewed by Sknr.
The main quests are some of the most interesting to come out of ESO in quite some time. Upon entering Murkmire you will meet an archaeologist named Famia, who’s scouring the temples to find Argonian artifacts for her museum. Her heart is in the right place, wanting to preserve Argonian culture, but it is unfortunately at the expense of taking those artifacts out of The Black Marsh. The quests you embark on with (and often times for) Famia, have a Tomb-Raideresque feel, carefully tumbling and sneaking your way past various traps throughout the temples. This definitely gives the expansion a more Raiders of the Lost Ark vibe, as opposed to the traditional sword and sorcery feeling you get by playing Summerset Isles.
Star Citizen - Crytek Loses Lawsuit
@YouTuber Law Crytek has lost its lawsuit against Star Citizen.
Crytek Loses. Star Citizen Wins.
In the long running lawsuit between Crytek and CIG, we finally have a resolution. Crytek's lawsuit has been dismissed by the court. Yes. It's true. Crytek can go back and amend (for the third time) the complaint, but for all purposes, this lawsuit is done. Everything has been dismissed. Let's talk.
