Earlier this month, Capcom’s action RPG title, Monster Hunter World, received a significant update. At the time, update 5.00 was the game’s fourth free content update, adding a new rhino-like Behemoth for players to slay, adding new Final Fantasy XIV: Dragoons-inspired armour and weapons, and even new Palico equipment.
Nvidia’s new RTX GPUs may represent the way it’s meant to be played when you’re ray tracing the living hell out of Battlefield 5, but the new Turing graphics architecture isn’t the be-all and end-all of real-time ray tracing.

Acer has just announced its Predator Thronos, a gaming chair so totally 1337 and exorbitant that it defies all reason whatsoever.

Eugen Systems has released a new trailer for Steel Division II, the incredibly detailed sequel to Steel Division: Normandy 44.
