The Surge 2 official artwork and logo

While The Surge launched as a bit of a buggy take on the Dark Souls gameplay formula, the developers have slowly but surely managed to improve upon it in almost every way. For example, the Walk in the Part expansion brought with it non-linear levels and much more colorful environments, while the more recent free content update added some highly enjoyable weapons and bosses to bash over the head with said weapons.

With that in mind, I am very glad to say that The Surge 2 is following in the same footsteps, as you'll see in the very first gameplay preview down below, courtesy of IGN. Have a gander, it's quite an interesting video despite The Surge 2 still being in early development:

I'm sure many of you were wondering why Fallout 4 even launched with a base-building system when it was almost completely inconsequential. Well, it would appear that was only a testing ground for what is now known as Fallout 76 - a multiplayer survival game where you can build gigantic bases and have said gigantic bases nuked straight off the face of the planet by someone you may have pissed off three hours ago!

Naturally, getting a nuke isn't as easy as popping into the local thrift store. You will first need to collect a variety of codes spread across the map, codes which will then unlock the nuke and allow you to target whichever poor sap you want. As I'm sure you've already noticed, the catch here is that you will not only need a group to accomplish this, but that you will also need to invest a significant amount of resources and time into something that might just get used against you if you fail.

After being slightly delayed due to the sheer amount of content arriving alongside it, Guild Wars 2's Living World Season 4: Episode 3 - Long Live the Lich is set to arrive next week, on June 26th. Besides having a ridiculously long title, Episode 3 will bring with it a new chapter of the ongoing "Living World" storyline, an expansive new map to explore, a new legendary item, and perhaps most importantly of all, a surprisingly adorable Roller Beetle mount to acquire and immediately paint over!

If you're wondering what exactly all of this might look like in gameplay terms, wonder no more as the developers have just posted a brief trailer. It's well worth checking out, if only for the new mount alone!

In a bit of an interesting twist, Bethesda has announced that the next Wolfenstein game will not only be co-op focused, but that it will not star B.J. as the main character! Instead, it will be his twin daughters that will have to take up the mantle of Nazi-slayers 19 years after the end of The New Colossus. We're now just one step closer to Commander Keen! 

Silliness aside, if you're wondering what all of this might look like in-game, allow me to share with you the recently posted teaser trailer. It's not as revealing as I or many others have hoped, but it'll at least give you a bit of an idea of what to expect from Youngblood. Have a look:

After a rather lengthy development process, the "Next Car Game" has now finally released in full as Wreckfest. As you might imagine from the name alone, Wreckfest is a demolition derby themed racing game with a focus on fairly realistic crashes, detailed damage modelling and in-depth driving mechanics.

If you're wondering what all of this might look like in gameplay terms, allow me to share with you the recently posted launch trailer. It'll give you a pretty darn good idea of what Wreckfest is all about. Have a look:

Rage 2 screenshot of a giant mutant enemy

After being leaked a rather impressive amount of times, Bethesda has recently come out with the official announcement for Rage 2. As you might expect given the original Rage, the sequel is going to be a first-person shooter set in a dystopian future, though thankfully this future won't be a gray and boring one. Instead, Rage 2 is going to be all about fast-paced gameplay, colorful levels, and ridiculously over-the-top kills.

Since trying to explain this through words alone is a bit of a pointless task, allow me to share with you two of the recently posted gameplay trailers. They'll give you a pretty darn good idea of just what Rage 2 is and whether it's the sort of thing you'd even enjoy. Have a look, they're quite fun videos:

If you've managed to miss the recent Quake Champions free weekend, you're in luck as the developers have just announced a lengthy extension! So if you're up for some oldschool arena carnage simply head on over to Steam, click on that green "Install Game" button, and you'll be tearing your enemies into tiny little giblets in no time.

It's also worth mentioning that if you log in before June 25th you will be able to keep playing even after the free weekend is over. You will only have access to the basic champions and you'll need to acquire the rest through in-game currency, but all of the important gameplay stuff will be available to you from the very beginning, so I'd say it's definitely worth checking out.
