Witcher 3 artwork for Geralt and Yennefer

In a bit of a surprise announcement, GOG has now come out to say they're giving away a bunch of Witcher themed digital goodies. These include artwork, books, soundtracks, the "making of" videos, concerts, and the list goes on for a while.

As for how exactly you can claim all of the items, the answer is thankfully quite simple. Just create or log into your GOG account, go to The Witcher Goodies Collection page, and add all of them to your account.

Borderlands 3 official artwork and logo

Borderlands 3 launched for both PC and consoles back in September of 2019, with the PC version being exclusive to the Epic Games Store. Six months have past since then, however, and the exclusivity period is now over. So if you're not a fan of the Epic Games Store, or if you simply want the entire series in one place, then you'll be glad to hear Borderlands 3 has now also made its way to Steam.

Given how important co-op is to the Borderlands 3 experience, it's well worth mentioning that there is cross-play between the PC versions. In other words, it doesn't matter if you're playing on the Epic Games Store or the newly launched Steam version, you'll be able to blast away bandits and madmen with exactly the same fellow players.

Control concept artwork for the strange Hiss

[Update]: Control's The Foundation expansion has now arrived, and unsurprisingly, it's pretty solid.

Remedy's Control may have released quite a few months ago, but I'm happy to say that the story isn't over just yet. According to the newly posted teaser, Control's very first expansion The Foundation will be coming this March 26th!

"Explore the roots of the Oldest House and discover strange secrets unknown even to the Bureau," reads the incredibly brief description. "The Foundation doors are open, but some things should remain buried."

Ori and the Will of the Wisps official artwork without logo

If you're looking for some Metroidvania-style action, look no further than the freshly released Ori and the Will of the Wisps. Much like it's predecessor, Ori and the Will of the Wisps is a stunningly beautiful action-platformer with a nice a bit of heart to its storytelling, as well as plenty of unique locations to visit.

You can get a bit of an idea of what Ori and the Will of the Wisps looks like in action, as well as what the actual moment-to-moment gameplay is about, through one of the gameplay trailers down below. Have a gander:

State of Decay 2 artwork and logo for the new Juggernaut Edition

After spending a fair bit of time on the Windows Store, State of Decay 2 has now made its way to Steam as well. It has not done so empty-handed, however, as this move was also accompanied by the rather hefty (and free) Juggernaut Edition update.

There's a brand new open-world map to explore, improved visuals and lighting, better audio and twice the amount of music tracks, as well as a new assortment of heavy melee weapons to crush zombie heads with. You can also expect to see the usual assortment of bug fixes and quality of life changes, as well improvements to the early-game experience.

[Update]: Blizzard has now made it significantly easier to acquire Rank 3 Essences, and it's thankfully not even all that grindy.

While Blizzard has slowly but surely made leveling in Battle for Azeroth a faster and more pleasant affair, getting your alternate characters ready for the end-game is still needlessly tedious. You not only have to go through the usual process of collecting gear and Azerite Power, but you also have to unlock and level Azerite Essences all over again, some of which require you to invest a considerable amount of time into PvP or nearly obsolete content.

Thankfully, it seems that Blizzard will soon be addressing this problem and making alts a lot more attractive to veteran players. Basically, once you've unlocked a Rank 3 Essence on one character, you'll be able to also unlock it for your other characters by completing everything from Horrific Visions to Mythic Keystone Dungeons and PvP matches.

Doom Eternal official artwork and logo

[Update]: Doom Eternal has now been released, and I'm happy to say the reviews so far are pretty darn good.

After the massive success of Doom 2016, it's going to be up to Doom Eternal this March 20th to push the demon-crushing action even further. Expect to see bigger and more interesting levels, an assortment of new enemies and weapons to toy around with, and naturally, even more glorious metal music.

If you're wondering what all of this might look like in action, wonder no more as the developers have just unleashed an awesome launch trailer with a bit of an unexpected guest from the previous Doom games. Have a gander:

Total War: Three Kingdoms artwork for A Word Betrayed update

[Update]: A World Betrayed has now arrived alongside a massive free update.

This March 19th Total War: Three Kingdoms will be getting another interesting DLC to spice up the campaign - A World Betrayed. The DLC will bring with it two new factions led by Lü Bu and Sun Ce, thirteen returning factions with new challenges, new story-focused events, and naturally, a bunch of new units to round everything out.

However, while DLC itself looks to be fairly solid, it's the accompanying free update that excites me the most. Not only will it add a massive rework of the bandit factions, but it will also include numerous new characters, a better spying system, and naturally, an assortment of balance changes and quality of life tweaks!

Guild Wars 2 teaser artwork for the new Cantha expansion

While the Living World updates are great as bite-sized pieces of content, it's the expansions that truly shake things up and breathe fresh air into Guild Wars 2. As such, I am extremely happy to announce that ArenaNet is now working on the third expansion!

The new expansion is still extremely early in development, and so ArenaNet has not shared any sort of details about the story, release date, or even special features that might serve as a highlight of the whole expansion. In fact, we don't even know what it's called right now. However, we do know where it'll be set!

[Update]: Overwatch's Hero 32 will be the mysterious Omnic Echo from McCree and Ashe's cinematic short.

Instead of going through the usual process of slowly teasing the new event over the course of a week, Blizzard has now simply unleashed the Overwatch Archives update without even a single word. And honestly, I'm actually quite glad they did it since the slow trickle of information just deflates any sort of excitement the event might bring.

Speaking of which, this year's Archives event is looking pretty darn good, even if most of the content is recycled from last year. Not only are the new cosmetics some of the best they've released in quite a while, but Blizzard has also managed to breathe new life into the old PvE missions by creating special challenges. For example, one of the challenges is Glass Cannon that drastically reduces the amount of health your hero has, but in return grants you a significant increase in damage. Needless to say, it's a pretty fun new ruleset to explore!
