If you loved Mortal Kombat 11's campaign and you're itching for even more over-the-top cheese, you might be glad to hear that the very first major expansion Aftermath has now arrived. It brings with it a new cinematic storyline focused around the Fire God Liu Kang, who as you might imagine, is attempting to save the world once more by pitting the various fighters against each other in a series of brutal duels.

To make things a little bit more interesting, Aftermath is also adding three new playable characters to mess around with - Sheeva, Fujin and the guest star Robocop. There will also be three new skin packs, though only the very first pack is available right now. On the positive side, the titular Eternal Klash skin pack does feature some rather nifty skins for Scorpion, Sub-Zero and Frost!

Serious Sam 4 official artwork without logo

If turning off your brain and simply mowing down enemies by the thousands sounds like a good bit of fun, you might be happy to hear that Serious Sam 4 will soon be upon us. Expect to see a variety of new and returning enemies, plenty of ridiculous weapons to paint the landscape with, the ability to play the entire campaign in 4-player co-op, and perhaps most importantly of all, the largest horde of monsters the series has seen to date.

As for how exactly any of this translates into gameplay, that you'll find out through two of the recently posted previews. Have a gander, there really is an impressive amount of enemies on display!

If you were surprised when 2K Games suddenly revealed the Mafia: Trilogy collection for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, you might be even more shocked to hear that the trilogy has now already launched! However, it isn't entirely complete just yet given that this 'trilogy' currently only contains two games: the most recent Mafia 3, and an HD remaster of Mafia 2.

The most exciting part of the collection, a full remake of Mafia 1, will be arriving on August 28th as a free update for all current and future owners. While the exact details are few and far between, expect Mafia: Definitive Edition to be rebuilt from the ground up with greatly improved visuals and expanded dialogue, more storylines and backstories to explore, additional cutscenes and gameplay features, as well as a variety of other minor enhancements and upgrades.

Fairy Tail official artwork without logo

Originally, Koei Tecmo and Gust Studios' JRPG Fairy Tail was supposed to launch on March 19th, but was delayed in order to ensure the developers have enough time to get everything as polished as possible. Unfortunately, the currently ongoing pandemic has thrown yet another wrench into the gears, and as such Fairy Tail has now been delayed once again.

Thankfully, the delay this time around isn't anywhere near as long. So instead of being unleashed in late June as previously announced, Fairy Tail's release date has now been moved to July 30th.

Halo 2: Anniversary has only just arrived for PC via The Master Chief Collection, and already I have some additional good news to deliver. According to the latest update, the PC version of the legendary Halo 3 will be heading into testing in the first half of June, 2020!

While I would love to tell you more, the exact details behind the test are currently few and far between. However, if you would like to get involved as soon as it goes live, you'll need to go and sign up for the Halo Insider program.

PC version of the hugely popular JRPG MMO Phantasy Star Online 2 was supposed to arrive to the west quite a few years ago. However, while the exact details about what happened never surfaced, the western PC release ended up being quietly canceled at some point and its website shut down.

Usually that would be where the story ends, but thankfully this one has a bit of a happy ending. It may have taken nearly a decade, but according to Microsoft and SEGA, the western PC version of Phantasy Star Online 2 will be launching on May 27th!

If you're looking for something interesting to sink your teeth into, or just to fill out your backlog, you might want to check out the ongoing Humble 'Bandai Namco' Bundle 4. As the name would suggest, the bundle is filled with an assortment of Bandai Namco games spanning a variety of genres.

You can find the full list of games, as well as the pricing tier they belong to, in the list down below. Have a gander, it's a rather diverse bunch:

Saints Row: The Third - Remastered official artwork without logo

If you're itching for a completely insane open-world experience, you might be glad to hear that a remastered version of the already excellent Saints Row: The Third has now been unleashed onto PC and consoles. It brings with it greatly improved character models and visual effects, a brand new lighting engine to help everything stand out, as well as all 30 DLC items to mess around with.

You can get a pretty good idea of what all of this madness looks like in-game through the recently posted launch trailer. Have a peek, it's quite an explosive one:

[Update]: The Artifact 2.0 beta has now begun, though only for a small number of players so far.

The original version of Artifact was flawed in pretty much every way, from the in-game economy being extremely exploitative to the balance being heavily reliant on random chance. After seeing that no mere patch could fix things, Valve quickly set out to work on redesigning Artifact from the ground up.

Quite a long time has past since then, but I'm very happy to say that we'll soon be able to see the results of all their effort. According to the newest blog post, Artifact 2.0 will be launching into Closed Beta next week!

Out of pretty much nowhere, Sea of Thieves recently got its very own Steam page and a brief announcement stating that it'll be coming soon. Well, as it turns out, "soon" really does mean soon in this case as the Steam version of Sea of Thieves has just been pinned for a June 3rd release date!

In order to give everyone an idea of what Sea of Thieves has to offer, as well as how much it has improved over time, the developers have also released a brand new trailer. Have a gander, it's a fairly short and action-packed one:
