SALES & DEALS

Kingdom: New Lands is the free game of the week on the Epic Store
https://www.dsogaming.com/news/kingdom-new-lands-is-the-free-game-of-the-week-on-the-epic-store/
From today until the 13th of June, Kingdom: New Lands is yours to try and keep for free with compliments from the Epic Store. As part of an ongoing deal with third-party developers, the Epic Store has added the spiritual successor of Kingdom: Classic to a list of free releases they will be making available throughout 2019.
>> Grab it from here. The next free game will be Enter the Gungeon.

Anthem is 50% off in the Origin Infinite Gaming Sale
https://www.pcgamer.com/anthem-is-50-off-in-the-origin-infinite-gaming-sale/
EA is hosting another Infinite Gaming Sale, shaving up to 60 percent off a big pile of games, including Battlefield 5 and Anthem. The former's been discounted by 60 percent, while Anthem's 50 percent off.
Those are some pretty big discounts for what are still fairly new, big budget games. Neither matched the—admittedly high—expectations EA had for them, though by the standards of most games a lot of people picked them up. I've seen physical copies of Anthem going for less, but I've not seen it cheaper for this on Origin.

On the Humble Store there's a Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege free weekend, with a 50% discount on the basic game and up to 60% off on the higher editions: https://www.humblebundle.com/store/promo/rainbow-six-siege-free-weekend/

At Fanatical, there are three new sales:

Ubisoft has released a brand new in-engine 4K trailer for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint. Now while the trailer is titled as a “gameplay” trailer, you will immediately notice that there is little to none actual gameplay footage (which is why we’ve named it as an in-engine trailer).

Friday news, part two:

Greedfall E3 trailer shows off its colonial story
https://www.pcgamer.com/greedfall-e3-trailer-shows-off-its-colonial-story/
Greedfall, Spiders' colonial RPG, has a new trailer that gives us a glimpse of crisis going down on this magical island. Take a gander above.
It's an interesting one, is Greedfall, putting you in the shoes of a new settler seeking a cure for a disease on a magical island. It's an unspoiled place with its own inhabitants, so of course there's a conflict.

Larian was shot down the first time it wanted to make Baldur's Gate 3
https://www.pcgamer.com/larian-was-shot-down-the-first-time-it-wanted-to-make-baldurs-gate-3/
Baldur's Gate 3 is being developed by Divinity: Original Sin developer Larian Studios, and the pair seem like a good fit. Larian's been designing RPGs for decades, with its most recent games almost feeling like digital tabletop adaptations themselves. But when Larian first approached Wizards of the Coast about making a new Baldur's Gate, the studio was turned down.

PUBG's Erangel remake will hit test servers soon
https://www.pcgamer.com/pubgs-erangel-remake-will-hit-test-servers-soon/
PUBG's first map, Erangel, never looked like a prime holiday location, but after PUBG Corp has finished its visual update... it will still look pretty miserable. But maybe less miserable than before.

Retro shooter Amid Evil's final episode comes out in two weeks
https://www.pcgamer.com/retro-shooter-amid-evils-final-episode-comes-out-in-two-weeks/
There's been a lot of big news today—Baldur's Gate 3, Stadia, Destiny 2 F2P—but there are other things happening, too. Things like, for instance, the announcement of a release date for The Void, the seventh and final episode of the Heretic-inspired FPS Amid Evil.

Take-Two boss Strauss Zelnick says Fortnite 'never affected the industry'
https://www.pcgamer.com/take-two-boss-strauss-zelnick-says-fortnite-never-affected-the-industry/
Fortnite isn't just the biggest videogame in the world, it's a phenomenon. It's made gajillions of dollars, brought mainstream fame to previously anonymous streamers, and turned Epic Games into a major force again, all while being completely free to play. It's had a huge impact on the industry—except, according to Take-Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick, it hasn't actually affected the industry at all.

Rumor: Blizzard is working on Overwatch 2
https://www.pcgamer.com/rumor-blizzard-is-working-on-overwatch-2/
Blizzard is working on a sequel to Overwatch, according to a report by Kotaku. Though nothing officially has been announced, the news comes from anonymous sources who told Kotaku that Overwatch 2 is in development and is expected to be revealed at Blizzcon 2019 in November.

https://www.pcgamer.com/my-friend-pedro-the-game-about-a-banana-who-wants-you-to-kill-comes-out-on-june-20/
My Friend Pedro is a 2D sidescrolling action game about a guy in a gimp mask who commits mass murder because a banana tells him to. To be fair, the guys he kills are trying to kill him too, but it's impossible to know who started it, so is it really self-defense? I honestly can't say.

Baldur's Gate 3 will be at the PC Gaming Show
https://www.pcgamer.com/baldurs-gate-3-will-be-at-the-pc-gaming-show/
After making our 2017 Game of the Year, Divinity: Original Sin 2, Larian Studios set its sights on the biggest name in RPGs: Dungeons & Dragons. And not just any D&D story, but the D&D story, at least when it comes to PC gaming. The developer has teamed up with Wizards of the Coast to bring back Baldur's Gate with its first new game since 2001, and you can find out more about Baldur's Gate 3 at the 2019 PC Gaming Show.

https://www.pcgamer.com/journey-pc-launch-trailer-features-sand-grand-music-enthusiastic-review-quotes/
If you were in any doubt as to whether Journey was beloved by critics or not, look no further than its PC launch trailer. "One of the best games ever made," declares one. "Nearly flawless," proclaims another. The ever-contentious word "art" is tossed around a bit as well.

Breaking Bad-style RPG Family Man is getting a final beta soon
https://www.pcgamer.com/breaking-bad-style-rpg-family-man-is-getting-an-open-beta-soon/
Family Man looks like a blocky, whimsical RPG but is actually a moral tightrope walk where you have 30 days to pay back the mob, while also trying to be a good husband and father. You can grind away in a regular job, or you can take on shady jobs for the mob that pay a lot better. It's now content complete, so Broken Bear Games is hosting a final public beta that will start soon.

Multiplayer is already in a playable state and the art team is updating the game for 4K, but it's the UI that's in the spotlight this time.

https://www.pcgamer.com/rumour-rainbow-six-quarantine-a-new-co-op-shooter-could-be-announced-at-e3-2019/

https://www.pcgamer.com/destroy-all-humans-remake-heading-to-earth-next-year/
THQ Nordic has revealed Destroy All Humans!, a remake of the 2005 game of alien conquest. Crypto will once again zip around in his flying saucer, harassing humanity with probes and death rays while harvesting their precious DNA. He's also super into Rammstein for some reason. Watch the reveal trailer from IGN below.
>> Now we know one of the two beloved franchises they promised would make a comeback at E3.

Time now to check the deals at GOG and Steam for the weekend:

+GOG

+Steam

That's all for this week. Next week, with the stormy that is E3, I'll most likely change the format of the news (to make it a bit more bearable) to just the headline and the link to the article. Otherwise it will be Hell.

But that will be next week. Until then, have a happy and gaming weekend.

Diablo: Hellfire expansion added for free on GOG
https://www.pcgamer.com/diablo-hellfire-expansion-added-for-free-on-gog/
Diablo, which was recently released digitally for the first time on GOG, has now been joined by its non-canonical expansion, Hellfire. I confess I'd forgotten all about it, but enough people wanted to replay it that Blizzard has allowed GOG to throw it into Diablo. It's available as a free add-on for everyone who picks up base game.
>> The game is part of the Summer Sale, with a 10% discount.

I can't believe it. They. Did. It.

How did they manage to convince Blizzard to release what they considered an abomination that they wanted to get rid off forever???

I mean, after doing the Witcher games, they've probably learned a thing or two...

Don't know if this has been posted here already? I've not seen it mentioned anywhere but it was posted on the AoE site about a week ago. Aoe2 Defintive Edition will be playable at e3 on the show floor, probably won't be shown at the conference then.

But they've also said it will have new civilizations! Pleasantly surprised that there's going to be some new content too, thought it might just be AoE2HD + DLC with better graphics.

I hadn't seen that before, so thanks for sharing!

Truth be told, I had forgotten about these definitive editions, and I already have AoE2 HD and all its DLCs, so I don't think I'll get the D.E. either.

But I sure hope they finally show AoE4!

Has it been posted here yet regarding the first month of XBOX Game Pass PC for only 1 dollar? Considering the leaks and rumours about the lineup (I won't mention here due to people wanting to avoid spoilers, but it's easy to find) and the cost going forward, I've taken the plunge and subscribed.

Spoiler!

The list isn't rumours - https://gg.deals/no/blog/full-list-of-xbox-game-pass-for-pc/

You can click on each game and it's goes to the official Xbox site and they are listed for PC Game Pass.

Considering a years sub is £45 (with the £1 offer)and Metro Exodus alone is more than that it's incredible value. If the new storefront is good then MS could find some big success with this.

Not only the first month, if you already have GamePass.

I subscribed to 3 months GamePass for €1 last month (May 14th - August 13th). With the €1 upgrade to GamePass Ultimate, they added a fourth month (now ending September 12th) and I can use all Ultimate features beginning today... so I got 4 months Xbox GamePass, 3 months XBL Gold and 3 months PC GamePass for only €2 in total:
