The Lord of the Rings: Gollum screenshot of the stealth focused gameplay

When The Lord of the Rings: Gollum was first announced back in 2019, its release date was loosely set for 2021. Given that we're now in 2021 and we still know basically nothing about Gollum, it should come as very little surprise to hear that its release date has now been pushed back to 2022.

No exact release date has been given just yet, but what I can tell you is that Gollum will be launching onto PC, Xbox One and Series X, PlayStation 4 and 5, as well as the Nintendo Switch. Similarly, there is still no actual gameplay to show, but you can at least get a bit of an idea of the sort of atmosphere the team is going for through the original teaser trailer. Have a gander:

Old School Runescape Twisted League official artwork

After a surprisingly long period of exclusivity, the modern version of RuneScape has recently made its way to Steam. While this new version didn't bring in any additional content, it did at least add 20 new achievements to collect, 15 trading cards, 6 emoticons and badges, as well as 3 player profile backgrounds to help spice up your Steam account.

Now that the dust has settled and any sort of issues ironed out, it's time for Old School RuneScape to go on the same journey. As such, you can expect Old School RuneScape to land onto Steam this February 24, 2021!

Apex Legends artwork showing off the new Legend Fuse

As is tradition at this point, Apex Legends' next season will bring with it yet another hefty rework of Kings Canyon. This time around the poor island battleground won't get stomped on or sunk into the sea, but rather exploded into tiny little bits and pieces over which we'll get to brawl afterwards!

The Season 8 update will also bring with it an assortment of balance changes, a brand new ranked season and battle pass, as well as an explosive new Legend by the name of Fuse. So if you're curious what all of this might look like in actual gameplay, allow me to share with you the newest and rather fun trailer:

Cyberpunk 2077 official artwork and logo

In an announcement that came pretty much out of nowhere, CDPR has now released a whole bunch of resources and specialized tools to help modders. While these new tools will not directly give you the ability to mod the game, they will allow you to create your very own tools and really dig deep into Cyberpunk 2077's internal parts.

As for what exactly each of these tools and resources even do, that you can find out through the brief list down below. Have a gander:

[Update #2]: Overwatch is looking to nerf Wrecking Ball, as well as buff Winston, Orisa and Reaper!

[Update]: Overwatch's Year of the Ox event has arrived alongside a new Bounty Hunter mode.

As you're likely well aware, the tanks in Overwatch are currently in a bit of a strange place. Their role requires them to run into the enemy team and occupy their attention, yet their defensive abilities are simply no match for the insane amounts of burst damage currently flying around. So despite having large amounts of health, even the most durable of tanks can melt within a second if they make any sort of mistake. Not exactly a fun experience!

In order to sort this problem out, as well as tone down some of the most powerful heroes out there, Blizzard has now brought in nerfs for Tracer, Echo and Zenyatta. The list of changes is fairly short, so here's what exactly has been tweaked:

MTG Arena Kaldheim artwork for Kaya

After what feels like an eternity of teasers and spoilers, MTG Arena's Kaldheim expansion has now finally arrived. Kaldheim brings with it an assortment of powerful gods that have alternative forms as either equipment, creatures or artifacts, plenty of tribal synergy for a variety of different races, and perhaps most excitingly of all, the return of snow lands and snow-based cards!

As for what exactly the setting is all about, that you can figure out through one of the teaser trailers starring good ol' Tibalt. Have a gander, it's a pretty fun one:

Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition artwork for the Lords of the West expansion

Most games from twenty years ago, even the really good ones, have long-since been forgotten and replaced with more modern variants. Age of Empires 2, however, has not only managed to avoid that fate, but seems to be going through a bit of a renaissance these days with the player count rising month after month!

Things are likely to get even better in the near future as Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition has just received a brand new expansion! Lords of the West brings with it two new civilizations to explore (Burgundians and Sicilians), each of which offers their own unique twists and units, as well as three fully voice acted campaigns to mess around with.

Shadowlands lo-fi parody Venthyr artwork

Despite the previous round of nerfs, there are still some Mythic+ dungeons in Shadowlands that are far, far harder than their competition. Nowhere is this more apparent than in The Necrotic Wake and it's second boss Amarth. On Tyrannical weeks where bosses are more powerful the skeletons he frequently summons are capable of nearly one-shotting DPS players, while the amount of unavoidable damage thrown around is enough to make even the mightiest of healers suffer a bit of a breakdown.

As such, I am very pleased to say that Blizzard has now not only toned down some of The Necrotic Wake's brutality, but also extended the same treatment to other problematic bosses in both Mythic+ dungeons and the Castle Nathria raid. Plaguefall's Margrave Stradama will now be a lot gentler on healers, Sanguine Depths' first two bosses will deal a bit less damage, while the Spires of Ascension's final trash pack will no longer be twice as deadly as the boss itself.

[Update]: CDPR has taken a major step forward for Cyberpunk 2077's mod support.

Cyberpunk 2077 released a little while ago, and unfortunately it did so alongside a whole host of problems. While the older consoles seem to have been hit the hardest, even the PC version has plenty of crashes, bugs and performance issues to contend with.

With all of that in mind, you'll be pleased to hear that Update 1.1 has now arrived with a hefty batch of fixes. First and foremost, the update has correct an assortment of crashes that could occur while loading saves or opening/closing the game, as well as improved memory usage across the board.

[Update]: The new Season 8 gameplay preview shows off Fuse and the hefty Kings Canyon changes!

After a whole bunch of teasers, Apex Legends has now finally unveiled the Season 8 update. Once it arrives this February 2nd, Season 8 will bring with it Fuse as an explosive new Legend, the 30-30 Repeater lever-action rifle, a whole bunch of new cosmetic items, and most importantly of all, another Kings Canyon rework!

While there is still no gameplay trailer showcasing all of these things in action, you can get a pretty good idea of what's coming through the most recent animated short. Have a gander, it's a surprisingly dark one:
