Following Elsweyr was always going to be tough, but Scalebreaker will see the continuation of TESOs Year of the Dragon storyline with its third of four planned DLCs this year. It adds two epic new dungeons and a ton of new loot and changes. Should be a good one!

EXPANSIVE PICK OF THE MONTH
The Bard’s Tale IV Barrows Deep
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
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
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
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.
