The Elder Scrolls Online

In the past week, Zenimax Online Studios finally launched their much-awaited Update 16 for their MMORPG, The Elder Scrolls Online. The new update includes the much-teased Clockwork City DLC that brings players to the mechanical wonderland of Sotha Sil. It also boasts one of the most useful features that’s ever come to ESO,  called the Transmutation System. Transmutation allows players to swap out Traits on their equipment, replacing less desirable ones for those that are. If you’re curious about the new additions and changes made in the recent patch, we have prepared a comprehensive article detailing the most prominent changes that you can check out on the blog.

FromSoft announced a few days ago that they’ll be conducting a server maintenance on that date. We have the full schedule detailing the regions and times for when the server will go down, and you can look it over in the article on the blog. Quite strange indeed. Makes you wonder what they are up to…

Persona 5

It’s time to open your wallets, if you dare. As lovable Atlus unveiled three new DLC bundles of their popular JRPG, Persona 5,  that are now available in the PlayStation Store.  First, there’s the Persona bundle which includes all Persona DLC summons that can be used in the game. Then, a Costume/BGM bundle, while lacking the Persona add-ons, makes up for it by including all character costumes & BGM DLCs. And finally, there’s the very premium Ultimate Edition bundle, which includes ALL of the Personas as well as ALL of the costumes and BGM tracks, for a whopping price of $124.99 on the PS4 and $114.99 on the PS3.

If you haven’t played the latest entry in the Persona franchise, now seems like a great time to jump right in with the new bundles on offer. You can check out the complete list of DLCs and pricing for each of the new bundle in the news piece on the blog.

Divinity: Original Sin 2

Larian Studios, the developer of the critically-acclaimed CRPG Divinity: Original Sin 2,  went on Twitter and revealed an obscure tease for something “wicked”. The studio setup the tease by presenting an image of an apple with the tagline: “We’ve heard a rumor that something wicked is coming…”. And, that’s about it. No hints pointing to a release date or as to what it is. Some think its a piece of Halloween DLC or something else entirely. This is certainly quite the mystery so stay tuned for more details. Halloween is just days a way, so we might have an answer soon!

The previously announced PC release of the once PlayStation exclusive action-RPG, Nioh: Complete Edtion,  had many PC gamers weep tears of joy. And as customary, it wasn’t long until questions perked up about the upcoming PC version’s technical aspect.
