Hollow Knight and Hitman headline the Humble Monthly

The Humble Monthly continues to impress - today's $12 subscription bundle deal is massive souls-inspired Metroidvania Hollow Knight, murder-sim Hitman and zombie survival sandbox 7 Days To Die. While the third of those doesn't quite fit, the first two are among the best in their genres, though Hitman is arguably a genre unto itself. That's not even mentioning the other handful of games to be…

Hollow Knight’s final free expansion launches as the game goes on sale

Good thing I've a long weekend ahead of me, because it's going to take time to explore Hollow Knight's crumbling Metroidvania world of brooding goth insects - now more than ever, as its third and final free expansion is out now. Formerly Gods And Glory, developers Team Cherry found the name was taken, so renamed this bundle of new boss battles and quests Godmaster. Fitting,…

Hollow Knight’s free Gods & Glory DLC launches August

Excellent soulsyvania platformer Hollow Knight is just about ready to emerge from its chrysalis and spread its wings, reformed and fat with free DLC. The last of its Kickstarter stretch-goal expansions - Gods & Glory - is rolling out next month, and is set to conclude the story of The Knight. It'll be launching on August 23rd. Below, a very boss-heavy announcement trailer.

Hollow Knight: Lifeblood expansion is free and out now

Hollow Knight incites a bit of debate around the site. As John brought up in his review last year: what do you do with a game that is genuinely good but rather unoriginal? It's a Metroidvania game that a lot of us picked up because it was simply the most recent Metroidvania game, and that's not the best excuse for buying a game. In the…

Hollow Knight’s Lifeblood update will draw more of yours

While the promised free Gods & Glory expansion for Team Cherry's excellent Hollow Night is still in the works, porting the game to the Nintendo Switch has led to the creation of some tangential new content & features that we all get to enjoy in the interim. While not completely finalized, they've rolled this little bundle of boss fights and gubbins out as a beta on Steam, and…

Gods & Glory, Hollow Knight’s final free DLC announced

Despite friends repeatedly nudging me into playing it, I've still only played the first couple hours of Team Cherry's excellent Dark Souls-ish metroidvania Hollow Knight. Normally a point to lament, but I'm not feeling so bad about it today. Riding a wave of inertia from a very successful launch, the third and final free expansion for the game, Gods & Glory, is on its way. With…

2017 Steam Award winners include PUBG, Cuphead & Witcher

We've already seen which games sold best on Steam last year, but a perhaps more meaningful insight into movin' and a-shakin' in PC-land is the games that people feel warmest and snuggliest about. To that end, Valve have announced the winners of the 2017 Steam Awards, a fully community-voted affair which names the most-loved games across categories including best post-launch support, most player agency, exceeding…

Ahead of what can only possibly be the impending financial doom of us all - Black Friday 2017 - Humble has launched its Fall Sale. It's a fairly big sale range, too, featuring thousands of games with discounts on a selection from a varied selection of publishers. That includes Capcom, Focus Home Interactive, Rebellion, Konami, Rockstar, Adult Swim, THQ Nordic and many more.

Digital discounts abound this week at Humble, GOG, Fanatical, and more

As an assortment of Halloween sale events grind to a halt now that we're officially in November (the month of Black Friday deals), a few more rise up to bridge the gap. So here's a handy-dandy look at a bunch of them. Are you sitting comfortably?

Hollow Knight’s second free expansion out next week

One of my greatest gaming regrets of this year is getting about halfway through Team Cherry's excellent metroidvania Hollow Knight, then getting sidetracked by a pile of work. In order to get properly back up to speed, I reckon that I'll have to start fresh, although with the rate at which they're pumping out free DLC I might just wait a little while longer. We…

Hollow Knight will welcome (???) the Grimm Troupe as free DLC this Hallowe’en

Hot on the heels of the Hidden Dreams free DLC, the Hollow Knight [official site] devs have announced the second in their trio of free-of-charge content packs for the gorgeous, insecty Metroidvania. This one is called The Grimm Troupe and will hit PC at Hallowe'entide, so the end of October. There's a super cute movie poster-type promo image which I'll pop after the jump along…

Hidden Dreams free DLC now in Hollow Knight

When I first played Sunless Sea I didn't click with it, then the Zubmariner expansion/DLC came out and I was hooked for weeks. When I first played the arthropoddy Metroidvania-with-hints-of-Dark-Souls, Hollow Knight [official site], I didn't manage to click with it, but chatting with friends who adore it once it gets going and seeing that its first free DLC - Hidden Dreams - is out,…
