Yeah they could of teased something like they did with The Outer Worlds 2. Still the game is supposedly midway through development by now. So soon might be later this year.

Rumor-mill says the target is 2023 for release. A possible PoE 3 is also in development.

A POE3, really? I would be on that. I played a lot of POE 1 and 2 and enjoyed both a lot. I recently restarted a POE1 play through to tide me over although I also just got Wildermyth so that first

Fallout: London Mod Official Reveal Trailer

loading…
Fallout: London is a DLC-sized mod for Bethesda's Fallout 4. As a continuation of the base game, the mod will allow the player to visit the previously unexplored post-apocalyptic environment of London.

As a divergence from previous official titles in the series, Fallout: London is not set in America. Visiting a totally new setting allows for us to explore totally new cultures which have not homogenized with their American counterparts. It also allows us to explore pre-war European history, and the effects the Resource Wars had on the class structured society of pre-war Britain.

Tiny Tina's Wonderlands devs reveal more of the D&D-inspired spin-off - PCGamesN
Developer Gearbox finally unveiled the new Borderlands spin-off, Tiny Tina's Wonderlands, last week at Kickoff Live, but the initial trailer didn't give us a whole lot of info on what the actual game will look like. Now, the devs have started to reveal a few details on the gameplay, plus a few in-game images showing some new environments and enemies.
5 Soulslike Games That Are More Like Bloodborne Than Dark Souls - GaneRant
Over the past decade, the Souls-like genre has quickly exploded in popularity thanks to FromSoftware's Dark Souls series. With an intricate combat system, obscure lore, and punishing difficulty, Dark Souls served as the blueprint for countless Souls-like games that would be released over the years. Similarly, Bloodborne would build upon the mechanics found in Dark Souls while adding Lovecraftian influences and a Victorian setting.
Will Dragon Age Get A Remastered Trilogy - Screenrant
Mass Effect Legendary Edition recently released, remastering the original trilogy of Mass Effect games. Currently, Mass Effect Legendary Edition is enjoying the highest number of concurrent players on Steam for a BioWare game to date, though the astounding success of the remaster brings a few questions to mind for BioWare's future plans. The looming question is if there is a chance that BioWare's fantasy RPG, Dragon Age, will receive a similar remaster.
CDPR keeps fiddling at the edges of Cyberpunk's doomed world - PCGamer
It feels like there's still a problem of expectations with Cyberpunk 2077: that, somehow, CDPR can still 'fix' it, and maybe all that hope and hype over so long will eventually prove worth it. The studio certainly has the resource to pull a No Man's Sky. The question is whether it would be better for us all if CDPR just fixed all the bugs, and moved on.
George R. R. Martin finished his work on Elden Ring "years ago" -Gamesradar
Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin has been talking up Elden Ring in a new interview, expanding on his role in the game's development.

In the interview itself, a portion of which you can see just below, Martin elaborates slightly on his actual role in Elden Ring's development. The author firstly says that his work on the game was done "years ago," but how long ago exactly is left something of a mystery.
Should Mass Effect 4 Ignore Andromeda? - Screenrant
Since the release of the Mass Effect 4 trailer, many have theorized on how the new game could work the events and characters of Mass Effect: Andromeda into BioWare's original trilogy. For the sake of new players and the series' story, however, it might best to keep them separate and leave Mass Effect: Andromeda in the past.

Ubisoft pulls the plug on Might and Magic X - RPGCodex
What exactly does this mean? According to a certain potato thread as well as this one on Steam, it means that you can no longer access the game's DLC (The Falcon & The Unicorn, promotional items and relics bought with uPlay units; possibly also the Meow Dungeon). Even better, apparently it is also now impossible to proceed past Act I, as the game has to call home first to confirm if you are a law-abiding citizen, and since it can't connect to the shut-down servers, you'll be stuck in Act I forever. There may be more issues, but not all the details appear to be really confirmed at the moment.
Lost Eidolons - Demo Play 24-Hour Recap
It’s been over 24 hours since the Lost Eidolons gameplay demo became available to install and try out on our Steam store page. During the preparation for this, our team worked diligently to ensure the game’s build was stable and playable for multiple language options. Some of them were up working until as late as 3 AM in Korea making finishing touches!

That's surprising and disappointing to hear. I'm glad I've played through it, but it's sad that others won't get to. There's probably a working version floating around somewhere though.

Regarding WarTales mentioned above:


I downloaded the demo of WarTales during the demo extravaganza thingy that Steam did. It's been years since I played it but it mostly reminded me of Battle Brothers, I think it was called. You have a small group of mercenaries and you wander a map collecting resources, bounties, and information. Depending on how you handle each situation and in what order determines the next set of actions, or at least that's how it seems. No story or plot, just pay your mercenaries on time or they can leave and take the stuff you gave them.

Many folks compare this to Mount and Blade too, but I never played that.

As of right now, the salaries are owed too often. It is very hard to stay in the black, but this game feels very new when it comes to balancing. The actual mechanics are all in place, but not the interactions between all of them. There are several mini games for the various skills your mercenaries can learn (cooking, mining, lock-picking, etc).

Shagnak,

The Codex article speaks of a Steam thread which provides a workaround which may make you to get past Act I. But it seems the DLC is still not accessible. I hope Ubisoft patches the game so it no longer needs persistent internet connectivity and user authentication shenanigans.

There were two "fixes" posted in this thread on Steam you can make to at least allow finishing the game. These "fixes" might only work on new games, I'm not sure.

To allow travel to the Elemental Forge and continue on to Act II:

in \Might and Magic X Legacy\Might and Magic X\ Legacy_Data\StreamingAssets\Dialog\LevDialog.xml

Delete all four instances of:

<condition xsi:type="PrivilegeUnlockedCondition" privilegeID="1001" failState="DISABLED" />

In addition to the above, to make the bridge passable from the start of a new game, go into StreamingAssets/Maps/theworld.xml and look for:

<Slot Height="6.13505" Terrain="BLOCKED" TerrainSound="NONE" MapArea="ASHEN_HILLS">
<Position>
<X>106</X>
<Y>67</Y>
</Position>

Change "BLOCKED" to "PASSABLE" and you'll be able to walk through the wagon, with the added advantage of being able to get Expert in skills like Shield or Spear without having to go through all of Act One.

Hopefully they will fix this properly. It's nuts that they are breaking a game that people have paid for!! DLC included, people paid for it!!
