The Division 2 has had a secret boss hiding inside the Manning National Zoo ever since that location was added to the game in the Episode 1 update back in July.

For many Elder Scrolls fans, the series essentially begins with Morrowind. But there are two massive, sprawling procedural worlds that preceded it, and Daggerfall in particular introduced of Tamriel’s most important lore.

Destiny 2 has had its latest big launch, and while many players have been able to enjoy Shadowkeep and New Light after yesterday’s server errors were resolved, it hasn’t all been smooth sailing. Bungie’s tracking plenty of issues across all versions of the game, and there are a handful of solutions you can try ahead of the next patch.
Prolific voice actor Troy Baker played Rhys in Tales from the Borderlands. Rhys returned in Borderlands 3, but Baker did not – and the reasons why became a weirdly public debate as Baker and Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford provided contradictory accounts on social media and at convention Q&As.

It’s an opportunity to look at the horror genre on Twitch, and examine why, despite their gory nature, they’re highly viewed.
PC gaming ain’t dead. And we have tangible, actual proof. It’s not even dying in that sort of metaphysical way that we all really are, if you think about the continual decay of your own cellular structure. Frustratingly it’s something I have to keep saying to people – the PC gaming thing, not cell decay – because there’s been some kind of global narrative over the past decade or more that PC gaming is soon to be over as a pastime.
Earlier this year Skyrim studio Bethesda teamed up with The Cat Rescue Foundation to help find homes for some real-life Khajiit. Now, The Elder Scrolls Online’s developer ZeniMax is also looking to help some little critters – it’s kicked off a campaign, pledging to donate $1 to animal charities for every five dragons players take down in the game, up to $200,000.
