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.

The title supports three player online or three player LAN co-op throughout the campaign, and in the Multiplayer mode where you can team up against A.I. opponents (i.e., "comp stomping"). What's interesting about the co-op here is that you can actually specify what your buddies can and can't do. For instance, maybe one of your friends wants to just focus on the resource management/base-building aspects of the game. Perhaps your other friend just wants to control the heroes and army units. SpellForce 3 lets you do just that. In some ways, this division of duties helps with some of the confusion that could arise otherwise as there aren't a lot of indications when another player has selected a particular unit or building.

Ubisoft is celebrating today's new content update by offering a free trial period for the game, which effectively runs from Thursday morning to Sunday night.  Players who participate will be able to play the base game as well as all three expansions, meaning those who bought the game at launch but never purchased DLC will also get a chance to jump back in and see what all has changed.  Should they choose to keep playing after the free weekend is over, players can pick the game up at a steep discount - 67% or 70% off, depending on what version of the game they'd like to grab.

In an hour-long developer stream, the team over at Trendy Entertainment laid out the new content that will be arriving sometime this month. The “Power of the Ancients” update includes a new game mode (Onslaught), new ways to customise characters via Defender packs, and a new HUGE map (they emphasize the size a number of times) that can feature twice as many baddies to duke it out with and as the official dev blog says, “Much more!”. The trailer can be found below, as well as the full livestream on Trendy Entertainment's official YouTube channel, here.

To put this at the top of things, the DLC is very good! The two new classes (Necromancer and Inquisitor) are fun to play based on our time with it thus far, the level cap is now increased to 100, and we're all looking forward to checking out the new areas/loot (once we get that far). There is a lot of content you can get for $43 (base game + DLC) and as we do talk about (briefly) in the stream, it's a really solid action-RPG title.

Originally released in 2002 and developed by Bioware, Neverwinter Nights is set within the fantasy world of Forgottem Realms and allowed players to experience an entire 40 hour campaign with friends. There was also a Dungeon Master client tool that allowed one player to take on the role of DM and run a custom campaign for friends. Many of these features are similar to what later games, like Sword Coast Legends and Divinity: Original Sin II, implemented within their own framework. So, if you're a fan of those titles, then Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition is likely within your wheelhouse.
