With their own finals taking place shortly after Hearthstone Grand Champion Chung "Blitzchung" Ng Wai's now-famous protest and subsequent punishment, the American University Collegiate team jumped in to support their fellow pro.

Radioactive shooter Chernobylite enters early access today

To my partner's enduring frustration, I never got around to Stalker. What I have instead is a photo book of Soviet Bus Stops and an enduring love of massive, decaying concrete monstrosities. Thus, while I might not have the frame to judge Chernobylite, a singleplayer survival shooter from The Farm 51 as a worthy successor to Stalker, there are certainly enough brutalist oddities to pique…

But while the space sim's transition to console has been relatively smooth, it's having a tougher time entering the mobile space. Stellaris: Galaxy Command, a mobile spin-off by an external studio, launched into beta on Tuesday but Paradox pulled it from sale only five hours…

Dicey Dungeons biggest update yet adds new spells and re-rolls tricky challenges

Dice? Cards? I often feel Terry Cavanagh's quite brilliant little puzzler Dicey Dungeons could've easily been a board game. Thankfully, it's a videogame, meaning balance changes and new challenges don't require sourcing a printer to download pages and pages of errata. All you need to get a hold of today's 1.5 update, the "biggest since launch", is a couple of minutes of internet access, and…

But today's update does…

Show Me The Eridium, the third weekly birthday event, is dropping cash fast and hard. With prices slashed across sharp outfits…

Stranger Things might be in a post-season slump, but you wouldn't know it from looking at games.

Wargroove adding new cooperative campaign in next free update

Oh, we all love an underdog story. Fantastical Advance Wars-alike Wargroove had its fair share of politicking and magical horrors, but what were these Outlaws doing all over the place? And why did they care so much about pastoral macroeconomics? Wargroove's upcoming free update, Double Trouble, is bringing the cannon-fodder bandits into the spotlight, ditching fantasy warfare for a cooperative heist adventure.

Apex Legends will let you practice without pressure on the Firing Range

You've just dropped into a warzone with 59 vicious murderers. But hold up, where's your trusty Wingman? What's this, a charge rifle? What does that do? Worse, both your teammates nicked your mains, and you're dropping as Caustic. Bloody hell, how does this gassy doctor play? Before you know it, you've been booted back to the main menu with a bang. Rubbish. All that fuss…

Fortnite teases a clean slate with leaks for Fortnite: Chapter 2

Fortnite's had a good run. Since an admittedly awkward 2017 launch, it's become this cultural behemoth, completely unparseable yet unstoppably popular. But it's acquired some bloat over those two years - Map locations have vanished, reappeared and warped in and out. Weapons and gimmicks have floated in and out of an interdimensional vault, a vault intimately tied to the battle royale's ongoing plot. That's plenty…

Chorus is a musical murder mystery from Dragon Age writer David Gaider

Don't mess with secret worlds - they might just drag you into a song. Chorus, an adventure game from Dragon Age lead writer David Gaider might not look too extraordinary on the surface.

But Chorus has something up its sleeve - something that, if it pays off, could make…
