Release Date: June 6th (PC & Stadia)/June 21st (PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series)

Platform: PC & Stadia

Developer: Zenimax Online Studios

Publisher: Bethesda Softworks

The Elder Scrolls Online High Isle dives into political intrigue about the Three Banners War, and The Ascendant Order. The order is described as a group of rogue knights with their identity shrouded in mystery. What we do know about them is that they want to stop the Three Banners War. While it might sound like a noble cause, they are acting far from knightly.

The next expansion adds 30 hours of unique story content focusing on the Legacy of the Bretons and their chivalric society. It will introduce some new characters as well as have a few familiar faces. Explore the islands, located southwest of Daggerfall. High Isle acts as a sort of holiday destination for the rich and elite, and because of its remote location, it makes it the best place for secret peace talks among the alliances.

High Isle is not only packed with side quests but also a brand new in-game card game to best called Tales of Tribute. Between your questing, you can visit the local tavern and play a game or two, not only challenging NPCs but also other players, gaining rewards such as cosmetics, furnishings, gold, materials and more.

Two new companions are also joining, the enigmatic Ember who is a Khajiit Sorcereress and Isobel a Breton Knight. They both offer new Companion Skill lines, meaning more choice when it comes to solo adventuring.

The Elder Scrolls Online High Isle will launch on June 6th for PC and Stadia, with Playstation and Xbox consoles on June 21st.

Get ready to play your cards right in ESO High Isle’s mini-game Tales of Tribute.

Developer: Blizzard Entertainment, NetEase

Publisher: Blizzard Entertainment

Diablo Immortal the free-to-play Action-RPG heads to both mobile and PC this month coming both with cross-play and cross-save. In this entry, the game bridges the gap between Lord of Destruction and Diablo III. The main aggressor Baal has corrupted the Worldstone, generating a number of problems for the residence of Sanctuary, causing Tyrael to shatter it. Now scattered throughout the world are shards of the stone, posing a threat. Skarn, the Herald of Terror plans to collect the shards and bring back Diablo. Will you stand in his way?

Immortal sets to bring plenty of nostalgia from previous Diablo games, but with a modern twist coming to new mobile platforms with both Android and iOS. While the announcement of this game seemed to only favour mobile, it will now be coming to PC as well. Players can pick from six distinct classes at launch including BarbarianCrusaderDemon HunterMonkNecromancer, or Wizard. A new feature will allow players to change their class, meaning more freedom to explore different playstyles without feeling a major loss of progression. The game will also include the Paragon System, letting you progress your character further. As with the main series of game, players will also be able to gain Legendary loot.

If you’re planning to play on PC you will have full support of WASD controls as well as the option for controller support. Immortal will also feature cross-save meaning you can use the same character on both PC and mobile. As we wait for more news on Diablo 4, this could be a game to tie you over as it now will be playable on PC, but still focuses on the mobile experience.

Diablo Immortal will be available for free when it launches on both PC and mobile devices on June 2nd, with PC going into an open beta test. Be sure to check our Diablo Immortal Wiki for more information on the game.
