Gundam Evolution artwork and logo for the Overwatch inspired 6v6 FPS

Much like Overwatch from which it draws a great deal of inspiration, Gundam Evolution is a 6v6, objective-based shooter where each mech brings with it a unique assortment of weapons and abilities to mess around with. As such, success is less about pure aiming prowess and more about knowing how to best utilize the synergies between your team's mechs in order to push back your opponents and secure objectives.

Since purely talking about an FPS game is a bit of a pointless endeavor, allow me to share with you the launch trailer. That should give you a pretty good idea of just what Gundam Evolution is trying to do, as well as what types of mechs you'll be able to pilot. Have a look:

Things are about to heat up in Dune: Spice Wars as Shaddam IV, the 81st Padishah Emperor, has decided enough is enough. He has now personally arrived onto Arrakis to sort the whole mess out, bringing with him highly advanced technology, legions of powerful Sardaukar warriors, and a considerable amount of political weight to throw around.

When it comes to the actual gameplay, the most exciting thing about the newly unleashed House Corrino is that they can deploy two main bases! You'll need to reach 5000 hegemony to be able to do that, but needless to say, being able to have a second main base close to your opponents is something well worth pursuing.

Dying Light 2 story-focused DLC Bloody Ties artwork and logo

If you've had your fill of minor events and challenges, you might want to mark November 10th on your calendar as that's when Dying Light 2's very first story-focused DLC Bloody Ties will be launching. The highlight of the expansion is a massive arena where you can fight against hordes of enemies in twisted recreations of classic fables, and if you're itching for something a bit more difficult, even highly mutated monstrosities in special trials.

Along the way you'll get to explore a brand new area, mess around with the new Shield Glove weapon, and as is tradition, obtain all sorts of fancy gear and weapons to spruce up your build. As for the story, much of it is currently shrouded in mystery, but what I can tell you is that you will be helping your new friend Ciro in his quest to avenge his brother's death and discover what sort of dark secrets lie at the heart of the tournament.

MultiVersus artwork showing off both Rick and Morty

When Morty first made his way to MultiVersus back in August, all signs were clearly pointing towards Rick following suit shortly afterwards. However, the MultiVersus team decided to go in a bit of a different direction by first releasing Gizmo from Gremlins as a part of a surprise update!

A few weeks have gone by since then, and I'm pleased to say that Rick is now finally getting ready to make his big debut. No exact release date has been announced just yet, though you can expect to see Rick Sanchez arrive in the near future.

Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered landed onto PC back in August, and unlike some of the previous PlayStation ports like Horizon Zero Dawn, it did so with fully polished gameplay and very few technical issues. Given its massive success, it really shouldn't come as too much of a surprise to hear that Sony is now bringing the follow-up game onto PC as well!

Once it arrives at some point in Fall 2022, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales will bring with it a brand new storyline to explore, a variety of new powers and attacks to help spice up the gameplay, and naturally, a whole bunch of new locations to swing around... or into! Here's a small teaser of what all of this looks like in action on PC:

Ravenbound open world action-roguelite official artwork and logo

After years of watching players dismantled hordes upon hordes of murder-bots, Generation Zero studio Systemic Reaction is now looking to tackle something a little bit different. As such, the upcoming Ravenbound will be a challenging open world action-roguelite set in an universe heavily inspired by Norse mythology.

If that sounds like it's exactly up your alley, you'll be pleased to hear that Ravenbound will soon be heading into Closed Beta! The whole thing will run from September 29th to October 13th, so you should have plenty of time to explore the content on offer, give the developers some much needed feedback, as well as see where exactly you stand with Ravenbound's gameplay.

ARK: Survival Evolved tek tier update artwork without logo

If you're itching for something new and interesting to play, you'll be pleased to hear that there's a double giveaway going on! Both the strategy focused board game adaptation Gloomhaven and the (unsurprisingly) survival orientated ARK: Survival Evolved are currently free to grab at the Epic Games Store.

The one catch, as is tradition, is that the giveaway is time limited. So if you want either game, make sure to add them to your account before September 29th rolls around. Once you've done that you'll be able to play them whenever you want and for however long you want.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 official artwork and logo for the popular FPS

If you're eager to dive into Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 before its October 28th launch, or if you're simply curious if it's even your type of shooter, you'll be happy to hear that the Open Beta is now live on PC and consoles. Unfortunately, there is a little bit of a catch.

As of right now the Modern Warfare 2 beta is still in Early Access, which means that only those that have pre-ordered the game are able to get in. However, this will not be the case for very long as the beta will become accessible to absolutely everyone on September 24th.

Stellaris Toxoids Species Pack DLC official artwork with the logo

Instead of messing around with complex gameplay systems like vassalization and diplomacy, Stellaris' newest Toxoids DLC has gone for a more focused approach. As the name might suggest, the Toxoids Species Pack brings with it a bunch of new origins, civics and cosmetic options to mess around with, all centered around themes of rapid growth at the cost of both personal and environmental sacrifices.

Here's a brief trailer for one of the new origins, Knights of the Toxic God, as it showcases both the atmosphere behind the Toxoids DLC as well as some of the new toys you'll be able to play around with. Have a gander:

Overwatch 2 artwork showing off the new Mythic Cyber Genji skin

While it isn't planning to drastically change the core gameplay, Overwatch 2 still represents a significant departure from the original's design philosophy. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the simple fact that Overwatch 2's matches will be 5v5, with each team having access to only one super-powerful tank.

Combine this with some of the new and reworked heroes, as well as the addition of passive abilities for each of the three archetypes, and it becomes blindingly obvious that Overwatch's heroes can't be transplanted into Overwatch 2 without some major balance tweaks. Many of these potential issues have already been sorted out thanks to the two recent beta tests, but as it tradition, some have managed to slip through the cracks.
