As a quick note before going any further, the mod is entirely free to download (10 Gb in size, and unpacks to the 30 Gb mentioned above), but you do need to own the game in order to use it. The title can be purchased via Steam or GOG.com.

Dauntless Will Enter Open Beta Next MonthJason Love

We've covered Dauntless a few times in the past, and Tally even wrote up some impressions of the game last fall when it first entered Closed Beta. All in all, we found the game to be more approachable and easy to hop into than Monster Hunter (though World did a lot to address those particular issues). I haven't spent much time in it since that stream, but after playing a lot of Monster Hunter World this past month and a half, I'm curious to dive back in and check it out again. I'm always up for a good hunt!

Similar to the special Predator mission that popped up late last year, the new "Splinter Cell Special Challenge" mission will offer players that are able to successfully complete it some in-game goodies they can equip on their character. These include Sam Fisher's Night Vision Goggles, Proximity Mines (which are new), and Splinter Cell patch. As long as you complete the mission before May 2, you'll get those rewards/bragging rights. After that, you can still play the mission and listen to Michael Ironside's gruff intonations, but the rewards are off the table.

When I reviewed the game back in 2016, there were definitely elements that I enjoyed and felt Streum On Studio got right. There was, however, a lot of room for improvement. The developer felt the same way, apparently, as they continued to provide updates and new content for the PC version over the next several months (some of which we saw when we played the game last July). All of those updates will be included in the "Enhanced Edition" coming to both the PC and PlayStation 4 on May 22. That means if you pick up the game on that date, you'll get these features that weren't part of the title (or were mere shadows of what they are now) when it was initially released:

Finally, "Zombies" purists are allowed to pick up the extra maps without worrying about shelling out for non-cooperative content.  Each of the three DLC maps can be acquired for $7.99 a piece.

Being in a war Being in a war in the desert Being in a war in the desert during a sandstorm Being in a war in the desert during a sandstorm and also you're surrounded by people who really, really don't want you to be alive

It's this last point that the upcoming Insurgency: Sandstorm seems to really want its players to experience.  Bold strategy, right?  Well, based on this teaser trailer, they may very well be able to pull it off.

Creative Assembly’s second RTS Warhammer title, Total War: WARHAMMER 2, arrived last fall, and, much like the turns you’ll take in the campaign, we’ve been taking our time with it. There are some great improvements and additions to the game, though there are still a few quirks that we hope will get worked out in the long-run....

Thanks to the game's latest update, players may join in without the constraint of needing an expensive headset, so those fists can now be slammed into actual keyboards, and the yelps... well, they'll still be yelps.  No real change there.

Unlike the Wood Elves or Beastmen that were added to the first game, Total War: WARHAMMERthe Tomb Kings won't have their own story campaign to play. Instead, it appears that they're getting more Legendary Lords (4 instead of 2) than the other races, and within the "Eye of Vortex" campaign of Total War: WARHAMMER 2 campaign, the shambling hordes have a different goal than everyone else. The Tomb Kings care not about that giant swirling vortex and instead are focused on finding and recovering the Nine Books of Nagash. Each book grants the Tomb Kings a campaign bonus, though what those may be haven't been revealed, and all of this culminates in a battle at the Black Pyramid of Nagash. Like the rest of the races in Total War: WARHAMMER 2, that's not the only unique mechanic that the Tomb Kings will bring to the game, and full details can be found over in the Creative Assembly blog post.

This special challenge is a separate mission you take on outside of the main story campaign. It can be taken on alone or with your usual co-op crew, but regardless, be prepared. The Predator can cloak, use its Plasma Cannon and Smart Disc, and can freely run around the treetops in order to better get the drop on you. Senior producer Nouredine Abboud even hints that the nuclear option is always on the table. Should you come out on top in this encounter, however, then you'll be rewarded with the Predator's Wrist Blades and helmet, which allows you to turn on that iconic Predator heat vision.

In all seriousness, good on THQ Nordic for actively working to preserve video games and bring them into a modern era. Titan Quest was my go-to action-RPG for the longest time and every so often I'd get a hankering to play it again. THQ Nordic sated that feeling when they released the Anniversary Edition last year, and then weirdly intensified it with the DLC release last month. Now, I'm waiting to play it again until it's out on the console, a phrase I never thought I'd say about it.

Along with the new weapon, the war pike, and the two new behemoths, the armored Skarn and the agile Kharabak, the "Sharpen Your Skills" update also includes a change that may prove fairly significant. Previously, there wasn't much distinction between the different weapons other than whatever you personally preferred. With the update, damage types have been added to all the weapons and those damage types will affect the behemoths in different ways. For instance, all hammers do blunt damage, which is effective against armor (HI SKARN!) and for stunning behemoths. Other weapons do piercing damage that will weaken a behemoth's limbs, making them more vulnerable to slashing damage. As the developers point out in the video below, it's not necessary to go hunting with a mix of all these damage types, but they do add a new strategic level to the game. Weapons can be customized further with the new "Cell System" that adds slots to a hunter's gear into which "cells" can be dropped to enhance damage, defensive values, or add elemental damage/effects.
