Warframe: The Deadlock Protocol is landing soon, though exactly how soon remains to be seen. Developer Digital Extremes plans to launch the update within the next two weeks – possibly in the week ending May 29, but more likely the week ending June 5. The devs have offered up a fresh look at gameplay from the update to give you a taste of what to expect until then.

Risk of Rain 2 hit Steam Early Access last year, and was initially scheduled to hit 1.0 in spring 2020. The full Risk of Rain 2 release date has now been delayed, but – in contrast with most of the high-profile delays of the last few weeks – the devs say it’s got nothing to do with COVID-19. Instead, they’re simply “expanding the scope of the 1.0 update”.

It seems that even as the wait for the unconfirmed-but-inevitable Total War: Warhammer 3 release date lengthens, momentum for its predecessor has not yet run out. In fact, the Total War: Warhammer 2 player count has hit its highest peak ever, rivalling perennial Steam favourites like Rainbow Six Siege.
Earlier this week, Call of Duty: Warzone got a new update that, according to the patch notes, slapped the battle royale game’s rocket launcher (RPG) with a pretty significant nerf. Given the weapon’s lethal prowess in the fray, this was welcome news to many in the Warzone community. However, it looks like the RPG might not have been nerfed overall – it might even have received a bit of a buff recently.
Today is the 30th birthday of perhaps the most iconic PC game of all time, Microsoft Solitaire. On this day in 1990, Microsoft launched Windows 3.0, which came with the card game that would grow to be despised by officer managers and IT teachers alike. Microsoft claim that even now, there are “more than 100 million hands played daily around the globe.” So if they’re so proud of it, why is their 30th anniversary merch such ghastly garbage? They’ve missed a huge opportunity to use one of the most striking images in PC gaming history.

At the beginning of the year, Riot Games hinted at a new feature on the way to its flagship MOBA game sometime this year: League of Legends announcer packs. That is, the option to choose different in-game announcers when firing up a new match. It’s an exciting prospect, but sadly, it’s been put on the backburner for now.

Mojang’s beautifully blocky sandbox Minecraft is blasting into the world of dungeon crawlers on May 26, and the critics’ verdicts are now in. That means one thing – it’s time to take a good look at those reviews to find out if the upcoming action-RPG game’s worth your hard-earned pennies.
