Hollow Knight: Silksong screenshot of Hornet fighting against a boss

Ever since Hollow Knight first released and became a massive success, Team Cherry has been teasing us with small updates about the upcoming DLC starring Hornet. It was initially supposed to take place on the same map and mostly differentiate itself from the original game through Hornet's unique moveset, story and a couple of additional bosses. However, as the project went on and quickly grew in scope, Team Cherry decided to scrap the DLC idea and instead create a fully-fledged sequel - Hollow Knight: Silksong.

Silksong will bring with it a giant new kingdom to explore, over 150 new enemies and bosses to fight against, a wide-variety of new abilities to toy around with, and naturally, a whole bunch of upgrades to collect. And if you find yourself looking for even greater challenges, you might be glad to hear that Silksong will also offer a brand new post-game mode that "spins the game into a unique, challenging experience"

Warhammer: Chaosbane, much like the Diablo series from which it draws a great deal of inspiration, is a fantasy hack & slash that's all about mowing down large hordes of enemies, messing around with a variety of abilities and classes, and naturally, collecting more loot than even the Warhammer Fantasy races could ever hope to carry.

If that sounds like it's right up your alley, you might be interested to hear that the developers have finally announced a release date for both PC and consoles - June 4th. They have also released a brand new trailer, so if you're wondering what all of this might look like in gameplay terms, you'll hopefully find the answers you seek right below. Have a peek:

Subnautica: Below Zero official artwork showing some frozen caverns

After a couple of short teasers, Subnautica's chilling standalone expansion Subnautica: Below Zero has now been fully released into Early Access. It offers a brand new storyline that takes place after the events of the first game, a large and ice-bound new region to wonder across, plenty of new creatures and leviathans to run away from, as well as a much greater focus on above-ground exploration.

If you would like a little bit of a sneak peek, and you don't mind one of the leviathans being spoiled for you in the process, allow me to share with you the recently posted trailer. Have a gander, it's quite lovely to look at:

Slay the Spire artwork for the Defect

Slay the Spire is quite an interesting combination of turn-based strategy and rogue-like progression systems, with a couple of card game mechanics thrown into the mix to help spice things up. A relatively simple concept, but given the sheer variety of playstyles and combinations on offer, it is one that I found to be rather irresistible!

With that in mind, I am very happy to announce that Slay the Spire has now not only released from Steam Early Access, but that it has done so alongside overwhelmingly positive reviews! If you're wondering why that is the case, as well as what Slay the Spire even has to offer, allow me to share with you the launch trailer. Have a gander:

My Time At Portia screenshot of a well-developed farm

If you're a fan of games like Harvest Moon or Stardew Valley, you might want to also check out the recently released My Time At Portia. As you might expect, My Time At Portia is all about restoring your newly acquired property to its former glory, growing crops and raising animals, wondering across the land in search of interesting things to do, as well as endlessly pestering the local townsfolk with questions and gifts.

Since atmosphere is what makes and breaks these types of games, allow me to share with you the recently posted trailer so you can get a better idea of just what My Time At Portia has to offer. Have a gander:

DUSK official artwork showing the various demon enemies

If you're feeling nostalgic for the classic FPS games that marked the 90s, you might want to check out the recently released DUSK. It's a Doom and Quake inspired FPS with retro visuals, a variety of devastating weapons, absolute tons of low-poly gore, aggressive metal music, and naturally, heaps upon heaps of secrets to discover. Or in other words, it's pretty damn awesome!

Since this is one of those games where trying to explain things through words alone is woefully inadequate, allow me to instead share with you the launch trailer. Have a gander, it's quite an explosive one:

Iron Harvest screenshot of a bayonet-wielding mech in the rain

Iron Harvest is an upcoming real-time strategy game set in an alternate history version of the 1920s. As you might expect from the image alone, this offshoot of history will contain clunky but extremely deadly robots, heavily armored and surprisingly mobile bunkers, sword-wielding mechs, as well as variety of other imaginative technology.

While Iron Harvest is still in early alpha, the developers have recently shared a gameplay preview showing off some of the aforementioned mechs, as well as the base-building mechanics. Have a look, they're certainly a charming bunch:
