Slay the Spire artwork for The Defect

[Update]: Slay the Spire's fourth character The Watcher is now playable in the Steam Beta.

Slay the Spire developers have been fairly busy with various ports over the past few months, so things have been fairly quiet as far as new features are concerned. However, while the details are still few and far between, I am glad to say that Mega Crit Games are working on something pretty exciting!

As you might guess from the title alone, that something is a brand new and completely free DLC character, making it the fourth to eventually join the roster. What exactly this character might be or when it's set to arrive, the developers unfortunately haven't shared just yet.

Oxygen Not Included official artwork and logo

After spending two eventful years in Steam Early Access, Klei Entertainment's colony management sim Oxygen Not Included has now finally released in full. Best of all, it ended up being pretty darn fun, though this probably won't come as a surprise to many of you given that it's a heavily survival-focused game from the studio behind Don't Starve!

As for what exactly Oxygen Not Included has to offer, allow me to share with you the recently posted trailer. It's not exactly in-depth, though it does take place in a variety of caverns and showcases just what kind of nonsense Oxygen Not Included is all about. Have a little look:

Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus expansion official artwork without logo

If you've completed everything Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus has to offer and you're itching for more, you might be interested to hear that its very first expansion Heretek has now arrived. However, while there is a good chunk of new content to toy around with, it is worth mentioning that the Heretek expansion is more similar to a DLC in scope.

As far as the new content is concerned, the Heretek expansion has brought with it a new Discipline that specializes in using alien technology, as well as two new alien weapons to really bring down the hurt upon your enemies. There's also two new troops to command, Sicarian Infiltrators and Ruststalkers, as well as five new missions set in the freshly introduced Ark Mechanicus environment.

GORN official artwork and logo

GORN, as you might imagine from its name alone, is a ridiculously over-the-top and brutal VR game about gladiatorial combat. To put it even more simply, it's all about taking a variety of weapons that liter the arena, and then using said weapons to bludgeon or slice your way through hordes of enemies!

If that sounds like the sort of nonsense you might enjoy, you'll be glad to hear that GORN has now finally released from Steam Early Access. Here's what you can expect to see from the release version:

UnderRail official artwork for the Expedition expansion

UnderRail is an isometric, turn-based CRPG heavily inspired by the first two Fallout games. Much like them, UnderRail is a bit clunky and often brutally difficult to the unprepared, but those that manage to preserve will find a deep and captivating experience. It's certainly not for everyone, but well worth the trouble if you're in its target audience.

With that little bit of disclaimer now out of the way, I'm glad to say that UnderRail has just been beefed up with a brand new expansion - Expedition. There's a massive new storyline to experience, a whole bunch of new traits and weapons to toy around with, around 200 new areas to constantly get lost in, and naturally, a boatload of new items to hoard.

SolSeraph official artwork and logo

If you're looking for something that's a little bit out of the ordinary, you might want to check out the newly released SolSeraph. It's essentially a hybrid between a side-scrolling action game focused on precision combat, and a top-down tower defense game where you have to build up your forces and fight off waves of enemies. A bit of a strange concept, which is why it probably won't come as much of a surprise to hear that SolSeraph is made by the same team behind Zeno Clash and Rock of Ages!

You can get a pretty good idea of just what SolSeraph has to offer through the recently posted launch trailer. I promise it's not a Borderlands spin-off even though the trailers start off the same way! Have a gander:

Streets of Rogue official artwork without logo

After spending over two years in Steam Early Access, the 2D rogue-like Streets of Rogue has now finally released in full on both PC and consoles! While the release version has not added a mountain of new content, it has brought in a whole bunch of bug fixes, as well as some extra polish to keep the whole experience nice and smooth.

If you're wondering what all of that might look like in gameplay terms, allow me to share with you the recently posted launch trailer. Have a gander, it's a pretty fun one:

Turok: Escape from Lost Valley screenshot of the adorable 'killer honker' enemy

If you were to ask people to describe the Turok series in a couple of words, chances are most would mention either "dinosaurs", "aliens", "alien dinosaurs" or the extremely brutal "cerebral bore" weapon. However, what I can almost guarantee nobody would ever do, is to call Turok "cute".

Yet, for whatever reason, the newly revealed Turok: Escape from Lost Valley is exactly that! It's a colorful and cartoony action-adventure that will have you face off against goofy versions of some of Turok's most iconic enemies. If that sounds a bit difficult to believe, here's the recently posted teaser trailer:

GORN screenshot of an enemy getting bonked in the head with a mace

GORN is a ridiculously over-the-top and violent VR game about gladiatorial combat. In other words, it's all about smashing your enemies over the head with a wide variety of weapons, everything from massive two-handed swords to your very own fists. A fairly simple premise, but a rather fun one to mess around with in VR where nobody can see you act like an absolute nutcase!

With that in mind, I am happy to say that GORN will be fully released from Early Access this July 18th! The exact details haven't been announced just yet, but the full release will be accompanied by a massive update, most likely adding a bunch of new content and some much-needed bug fixes.

Battlerite official artwork and logo

Battlerite, much like Bloodline Champions that came before it, has simply not managed to find itself a consistent audience. Whether this is due to Stunlock Studios pursuing a Battle Royale experience with Battlerite Royale or the simple nature of highly competitive games burning players out, I have no idea, but the end result is that the developers can unfortunately no longer continue supporting Battlerite.

"We love Battlerite. And we know that you do too. But today we’re announcing that we will be scaling back on development, and things will be changing moving forward," reads the recent update. "With the state of the current playerbase we’re no longer in a position where working on Battlerite and Battlerite Royale are sustainable as main projects for the studio. We’ve seen declining player numbers and player investment for a while now, and diminishing returns on all of our latest gameplay changes and marketing campaigns."
