     Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous beings with a daunting boss fight, the kind that makes mere mortals tremble in their boots. I'm not talking about some hulking beast, although one does turn up quite quickly - I'm talking about bewildering and terrifying character creation system with its legions of numbers and arcane terms. By the time the game starts proper I already feel like I've had my head kicked in by some demonic foe. In the game's defence it explains everything in detail, it's just that to a Pathfinder noob like me those details might as well be written in Latin. While the visual customization is quite limited, there's approximately 25 different classes, along with sub-classes. There's tons of feats and skills and abilities to choose from. In short, this CRPG where you control a party of six has a lot going on and is probably only going to be for the kind of people who can invest dozens and dozens of hours into playing it.

     Ubisoft gives out free Rainbow Six Siege Showdown packs after confusing players

Rainbow Six Siege's Showdown event returned last week, and while it's already nearly over, you are getting one last round of free stuff. Ubisoft is offering another Showdown pack to players as an apology for one particularly confusing challenge, so if you've been meaning to log in and check out the Wild West shootout, now's the time.

The 'new sheriff in town' challenge asks players to get 10 eliminations in Showdown in exchange for what looks like a Showdown pack. But it's not a pack - instead, it's a weapon charm that simply shares the appearance of a Showdown pack. The Rainbow Six subreddit has been filled with players this week wondering when their extra pack is going to show up.

"Due to the confusion regarding the Showdown Challenge and to thank you for a rip roarin' return to Fort Truth, we will be granting players a free Showdown pack later this week", Ubisoft explains in a tweet. You'll have until September 28 at 10am PDT / 1pm EDT / 6pm BST to log in and qualify for the extra pack.

     Iberia gets a free update with more roads (in Euro Truck Simulator 2)

Euro Truck Simulator 2 players have been cruising the highways of the Iberian Peninsula since earlier this year, and broadly have been having a good time of it. But there's just a little too much highway, you know? Not enough chances to explore the countryside. That's about to change, however, in a free update to the Iberia DLC.

The update will add two new country roads to help connect the existing highway system. One of them will be north of Madrid, offering a new way to get between the A-1 and A-2 highways. The other will be located in the south of Portugal, leading into Spain near Seville. As the devs explain in the announcement, "these new roads will not only provide truckers with alternative routes whilst out on delivery, but also more beautiful scenery and areas to explore in Iberia!"

So why are we getting a sudden update? Apparently, these roads were built as a sort of test project for new map designers at developer SCS Software. They turned out good enough that the studio decided to add them to the game, and the devs are teasing the possibility that this could happen more in the future, too.

     This Doom 2 mod replaces the guns with terrible MS Paint drawings

Doom 2 has been out for a long time, and the Doom modding community is still endlessly creative with finding ways to add to, change, or completely remake the classic series of gory FPS games. Other modders have other goals in mind, however. There's a new mod out called 'Doom 2 but the guns look bad,' which replaces all the weapon artwork in Doom 2 with a version that looks like it was made in Microsoft Paint, probably because it was.

'Doom 2 but the guns look bad' doesn't touch anything else in Doom 2, it just makes the guns look bad. Modder TechIguess explains on the ModDB page: "Yup, I literally just took Doom 2 and redrew the weapon models to make them look worse." If you were to judge the mod by how well it accomplishes the goals the modder set out for it, it's a smashing success: all these guns look extremely bad.

Take the chaingun, for instance. Normally it's shown as a series of silver barrels bound together toward the muzzles, with hand-drawn lighting effects showing that it's made of reflective metal. The modded version looks like an icon for a fence.

     Fortnite 18.10 release time confirmed – Season 8 XP fixes are coming

The latest Fortnite season is here, but that's never the end - and Epic has confirmed exactly when you can expect Fortnite 18.10 to land. As ever, the devs are being pretty mysterious about what's going to be in the update, but we do know that the promised improvements to XP will be included as part of the patch.

Fortnite matchmaking will be disabled on September 28 around 12:30am PDT / 3:30am EDT / 8:30am BST. Downtime proper will begin around 1am PDT / 4am EDT / 9am BST. There's no official word on when downtime will end, but the maintenance period is typically pretty brief - you'll be able to login and see the new update shortly after.

As the devs explain on Reddit, "this patch includes the improvements to XP that we discussed previously. More details to come in our v18.10 blog post tomorrow." Until then, we're just left to speculate on what those XP improvements will look like. Levelling has been slow this season, and last week the devs nerfed the XP provided by the Impostors mode.

As they always do, things in Steam are likely to change again. Unlike Valve's Steam Labs experiments for storefront discoverability or downstream effects of the upcoming Steam Deck, this one is a little more under the hood. As spotted by the unaffiliated Steam tracking site SteamDB, the beta version of Steam's client now has a new method that is capable of preventing users from accessing former builds of games they own. The majority of players likely aren't pulling up old game builds often, if ever, but this change could make life a lot tougher for modders, speedrunners, and anyone trying to roll back a buggy game update while they wait for a hotfix.
