EXPANSIVE PICK OF THE MONTH


The Bard’s Tale IV Barrows Deep

Director’s Cut

August 27, 2019

The Bard’s Tale IV was already a pretty great game but this 2.0 update is a substantial overhaul, adding a whole new end-game chapter, with new enemies, items and weapons. There’s also a ton of Quality of Life fixes and UI upgrades. But best of all? If you own it on PC already, it’s all completely free and if you have Xbox Gamepass, it’s also free on launch day! Get this played.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3

Cyclops and Colossus

August 30, 2019

A free update at the end of the month will add Cyclops and Colossus to the Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 ranks. This comes ahead of the first Marvel Knights DLC which will surely release shortly afterwards. But yay, more free stuff!


ONES TO WATCH


Warhammer Vermintide 2

Winds of Magic

August 2019 

Due to release this month, the first major DLC Expansion for Vermintide 2 is almost here. With a new enemy faction, map, mode, weapons and difficulty, there’s a lot to unpack here. Don’t sleep on this one.

Yo-Kai Watch 4

Updates and DLC

August 2019 

In a major free update this month, a new map – Battle Raidenryuu is expected – along with additional Yo-Kai and friendship opportunities. Paid DLC is also said to follow, that includes multiplayer and even more Yo-Kai. When any of this arrives, however, is anyone’s guess.
