News | World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King Classic Coming September 26

World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King Classic will be available on September 26.

Blizzard has officially announced this. The expansion to World of Warcraft Classic is free for all people who have a World of Warcraft subscription. The release date leaked out recently and now it appears to be correct.

Last April, Blizzard announced Wrath of the Lich King Classic. It should be an authentic experience for players who have played the original, as well as a fantastic adventure for newcomers, according to producer Holly Longdale.

The expansion adds two new areas to the cold Northrend, in the form of Howling Fjord and Borean Tundra. The Death Knight class is also added. The experience should be almost the same as the release of the original expansion for World of Warcraft from 2008. What is different is that mission icons are not visible on the playing card from release and that the dungeon finder is replaced by the group finder.


News | The Elder Scrolls Online: High Isle is now playable

The latest chapter of The Elder Scrolls Online can be played starting today.

In High Isle, an expansion that costs 40 euros separately, players are taken to the Systres Archipelago also called The Systres, a small group of islands in the west of Tamriel where many Bretons can be found. Also, a free update is now available for all players, Update 34, which adds AMD’s FidelityFX Super Resolution, among other things, which should make the game run better, especially on older hardware.

After the expansion, Mundus Stones are now part of the armory system, making so-called Mundus Stone boons easier to swap between different builds and gear. Changes have also been made to the quickselect wheel, allowing players to set up multiple wheels for things like mementos and emotes, and more options to set up the primary quickselect wheel for combat items and consumables.

Due to the update, the music of the title screen can be adjusted in the settings. A so-called Accessibility Mode has also been added, which automatically switches all key bindings when a new input is detected. Developer Zenimax reports that there will be more accessibility updates in the future, targeting players using different inputs (such as controllers).

The Elder Scrolls Online: High Isle is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Stadia.


News | Ghostwire: Tokyo director ponders sequels and DLC

Kenji Kimura, the director of Ghostwire: Tokyo, would like to make expansions and sequels to the game.

He reports this in an interview with IGN Japan which is translated by GamesRadar. Although nothing is known about the future of the new franchise, he says he would like to return to this game world. “Once we’re calmer again, I’ll have ideas for DLC and sequels, and I want to make them. Nothing’s set yet, so I can’t share anything else.”

The game scored an 9.0 on GamersInfuzed: “Ghostwire: Tokyo is bursting with originality and also looks great. Still, that can’t prevent that typical rut of open world games creeps in towards the end of the game.”

Ghostwire: Tokyo was released earlier this year for PlayStation 5 and PC. The game will be console-exclusive for PlayStation 5 for a year, so it could come to Xbox consoles after March 25, 2023.


News | Path of Exile Sentinel Expansion Revealed

Grinding Gear Games unveils the latest Path of Exile expansion, titled Sentinel, featuring new gameplay systems, quality of life tweaks, and a new challenge league.

The Sentinel expansion centers around the titular Sentinels, small drone-like creatures that players can deploy to make encounters with enemies even more difficult, increasing the associated reward. Sentinels can be found by killing enemies and each has a color that indicates what kind of power they possess, as well as some randomly generated stats and perks.

Red ‘Stalker’ Sentinels will continue to fly near the player and temporarily increase the stats of enemies they spot. Blue “Pandemonium” Sentinels instantly buff all enemies in the area. Yellow ‘Apex’ Sentinels work just like the red ones, but only focus on weird, unique, or boss enemies. Each Sentinel type can be deployed once per area.

After being used a few times, a Sentinel’s battery will run out, and two of these spent Sentinels can be combined with a Power Core into a new, fully charged Sentinel, with some powers from both ‘parents’. The Sentinel Controller Panel allows players to select some buffs and benefits that apply to all of their Sentinels.

The Sentinel expansion adds 20 new keystone nodes to the Atlas skill tree, allowing players to further personalize their characters. There will also be ‘uber’ versions of six bosses coming to the game, which can have new Jewels as rewards, as well as a slew of quality of life tweaks and UI tweaks.

During the livestream revealing the Sentinel expansion, Grinding Gear Games co-founder Chris Wilson discussed controller support for the PC version. After some beta testing, feedback and suggestions from the players have been incorporated, which means that controller support will now “officially launch”. That means that the game can also be played on the Steam Deck from the new update.

Path of Exile’s Sentinel expansion will be available for free starting May 13.


News | World of Warcraft Dragonflight Expansion Revealed

Blizzard has unveiled the new expansion for World of Warcraft called Dragonflight.

There were already rumors that the new expansion would be called that, but last night it was officially revealed during a livestream. Players travel to the Dragon Isles in the expansion. The new location is described as opulent and ‘primordial’.

Dragonflight introduces a new hybrid race, the Dracthyr Evokers. They start at level 58 and can join both the Horde and the Alliance. They have two forms: their dragon-like avatars used during combat and their human forms when talking to people from Azeroth.

In addition, dragons are added that players can fly on. This dragon can be completely customized to the player’s taste. The dragon can also be upgraded to become faster or to cover greater distances.

In addition to these new options, Blizzard also needs to make improvements to existing elements of World of Warcraft. For example, the talent system must be overhauled and the UI must be adjusted. It is not yet known when the expansion will be released. More information can be found on the official website.

Blizzard has also announced that Wrath of the Lich King is coming to World of Warcraft Classic later this year. Players will receive a boost to level 70 for those who have not played Burning Crusade Classic, achievements, an improved Barber Shop and of course the new zones Borean Tundra and Howling Fjord. However, the Dungeon Finder from the original expansion does not return.


News | New The Division 2 Mode Lets Players Take Over Nuclear Power Plant

A new mode for Tom Clancy's The Division 2 is rolling out in which players must try to get a nuclear power plant out of the hands of the enemy. The new mode has been in development since early 2021

The new mode is called Countdown, is suitable for eight players and has been added to the game without any promotion. The current situation in Ukraine and in particular the fighting around the Chernobyl nuclear power plant seems to have influenced Ubisoft’s choice not to promote it.

Ubisoft informed Kotaku in a statement that the mode had been in development since early 2021. “Like the main game, the mode is fictional and has nothing to do with current events.”

Countdown can now be played via The Division 2’s public test servers. It is not yet known when the mode will be available to everyone.
