If you're looking forward to playing Tom Clancy's The Division 2, then Ubisoft has a variety of editions they'd like to sell you. The publisher/developer revealed all these versions of the forthcoming sequel during Gamescom, and maybe the most interesting item in all of this is a "Year 1 Pass" for all editions above "Standard," which gives you early access to the free "Year One Episodes."

New World Interactive has revealed that Insurgency: Sandstorm will see a PC release sometime in September 2018. If you're unfamiliar with Insurgency, it began its life as a mod for Half-Life 2.

While there are definite improvements, it also sounds like things haven't gone quite as planned (which I believe is the official motto for the games industry).
For this week's "Let's Play Co-Op" stream (every Monday night at 10:00 pm EDT), Nick, Mike, Locke, and Jason hopped into Eden Rising: Supremacy, which hit Early Access last week.

During a developer livestream last week, Ubisoft Montpellier showed off more of Beyond Good and Evil 2, perhaps one of the most anticipated video game sequels ever.

Based on the amount of coverage dedicated to it, you'd think that Minecraft has faded into the ether. Honestly, though, it's because there just isn't much to say about it anymore. It continues on its monolithic path and, based on sales figures, practically everyone in the world has had a chance to play it and determine whether or not it's for them.
Nvizzio's third-person, open-world action/tower-defense title, Eden Rising: Surpemacy, will be hitting Steam Early Access sometime next month.
