Monday news, part two:

Assassin's Creed Valhalla comes to a close with its final, December update
After nearly two years in post-release development, Assassin's Creed: Valhalla will launch its last update on December 6th, 2022. The final update will include The Last Chapter, which Ubisoft describes as "a touching and intimate conclusion to Eivor's saga."

Broforce is coming back for one last job, will probably punch Satan
The action-fueled bros of Broforce are coming back for one last ride, with one of 2014's best indies posting an announcement that a new update, Broforce Forever, will hit in early 2023. All we truly know so far is that it will contain "New Bros, New Missions, New Freedoms."

Do some sci-fi dungeoneering in the open beta of Endless Dungeon
Amplitude's giving you another shot to jump in on its in-development action RPG wave defense roguelite... thing... Endless Dungeon. Anyway, it's a kind of isometric shooter-RPG with friends and turrets, is what I'm saying, a cooperative or solo wave d efense where you explore a large space-station complex and defend a little walking crystal in the delightfully-designed world of the Endless series.

There are altogether too many eyeballs in this Darkest Dungeon 2 update
I would like to ask your opinion on how many eyeballs is too many eyeballs. Is it like, five eyeballs? Three? For many I guess it's eight, since that's how many eyeballs a spider has and they do not like spiders. Either way, I think we can agree that the Obsession's Gaze update for Darkest Dungeon 2 has altogether too many eyeballs.

Julius Caesar comes to Civilization 6 for free
Julius Caesar is coming back to the Civilization series, and will hit the game starting on November 21, 2022, free for anyone who links a 2K account to Civilization 6. It'll be the first time in a while that Julius Caesar takes the reigns of Rome, acting as an alternative to Trajan, the current leader.

Devs are admitting their 'sins' on Twitter, and there sure are a lot who hid Loss in games
While Twitter users joke about the social media platform being on the brink of death and deletion thanks to Elon Musk's mismanagement, game developers have used this opportunity to stage a final confession, an absolution of all their design sins. It began with a senior character artist working on Overwatch admitting he hid "abstracted versions of Loss in older projects", and continued from there.

The Warzone 2 whack-a-mole begins as infinite XP bug discovered and patched within hours
Players have discovered a Call of Duty: Warzone 2 glitch that allows you to level a gun from baseline to maximum level in a single match: and just as quickly, developer Raven Software swung into action and squished it. It's all thanks to the exponential XP reward that can come from repeating one of the in-game contracts, Safecracker, which is a straightforward mission that nearly doubles the XP award each time one is completed.

Postal 3 has been taken off sale after 11 years, and Postal's original devs are thrilled
Execrable videogame Postal 3 has been abruptly removed from sale, owing to issues with its DRM system and the fact that it's been a miserable experience to play since it came out 11 years ago. Running With Scissors, developer of every Postal game but 3, announced the game's withdrawal from sale in a tweet, attributing it to "DRM issues and overall shittiness of the game itself".

Overwatch 2 won't remove Tracer despite damage bug because she kinda sucks without it
Tracer mains can breathe a sigh of relief. Despite a bug being recently discovered with the damage hero in Overwatch 2, Blizzard says she won't be temporarily banished.
Perhaps less relieving is the knowledge that it's because, without the bug, Tracer would be pretty damn underwhelming. Right now, the issue is that Tracer has zero fall-off damage under 20 meters. It's a pretty big range to be inputting maximum damage. Apparently, pro players had noticed the bug not long after Overwatch 2's launch, but has only just come to light among the wider playerbase.

Rockstar sets new rules for GTA Online roleplay servers after shutting down rapper's NFT grift
Rockstar has issued a clarification of its policies around Grand Theft Auto Online roleplay servers, a move that has caused some consternation among the huge community that play GTA Online this way, but seems sparked by an isolated server set up to promote a rapper. Yep: take a bow Lil Durk, if that is your real name.

Modern Warfare 2 brings back the classic Superman bug
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare had, for a time, a very amusing glitch that came to be known as the Superman bug. (...)
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has already brought a few classic bugs back, and now Superman is back too. In MW2 it appears to manifest in several forms: in some clips we see players hop off the ground and rapidly gain momentum, allowing jumps and gymnastics that should be impossible to non-superheroes, while in others they also appear to gain significant altitude.
