     Ghost Song is a gorgeous horror Metroidvania out this year

The Ghost Song release date has been set for 2022, which means we're getting a gorgeous-looking horror Metroidvania to check out pretty soon. Ghost Song has been in development for years - the better part of a decade, in fact - but it seems the end is finally in sight for developer Old Moon.

Ghost Song will launch in 2022 via Steam, courtesy of newly-announced publisher Humble Games. The game was originally Kickstarted way back in 2013, so it's been a long road to release. Today's trailer shows a gorgeous, atmospheric world with just enough creepiness around the edges to give everything a properly unsettling vibe. (Shout out to the guy just using a giant severed robot head as a weapon.)

This one leans toward the Metroid side of the Metroidvania equation, with a sci-fi setting, beam weapons, and a mysterious alien planet to explore. There are also some hyper-specific visual references to Super Metroid, like the ship in the opening and the busted open underground transport pipe.

     Hogwarts Legacy release date set for this holiday on PC

The Hogwarts Legacy release date has now been vaguely confirmed - we don't have a specific date, but we do know the developers are targeting a launch in "holiday 2022". The upcoming open-world game set in the Harry Potter universe has been something of a mystery ever since it was first announced, but today the devs at Avalanche (the Disney Infinity studio, not the Just Cause studio) revealed an extensive look at gameplay.

The Hogwarts Legacy release date is set for holiday 2022 on PC, though we don't know which storefronts it will be available through. The game will also launch on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and the Xbox Series consoles. It's set in the 1800s, long before the time of most familiar Harry Potter characters, and lets you create a custom wizard to live through life at the school.

Today's gameplay footage, hosted as part of Sony's State of Play series, offers an extensive look at the various activities you'll be able to participate in. You'll be able to engage in wizard duels, explore the world outside Hogwarts, craft magical and mundane items, and even delve into dungeons filled with monsters.

     Humankind to get an update for religion and sieges in April

An update is on the way for historical 4X game Humankind. The 'Vitruvian' patch is scheduled to arrive at the end of April, addressing some balance issues, adding some options for notifications, making improvements to the religion system, and more. There's also a limited-time event starting up today, so there's still plenty to do while you wait for the patch to arrive next month.

Developer Amplitude Studios says the Vitruvian update will include a balancing pass for affinities, which will include some additional restrictions on builders and scientists. Builders include the Egyptians, Maya, Khmer, Mughals, Persians, Siamese, and Australians. Scientist cultures include the Babylonians, Greeks, Umayyads, Joseon, French, Japanese, and Swedes.

Improvements to religion will also be coming in the Vitruvian update. Specifically, the AI will now once again adopt historic religions, which it had more or less stopped doing after the update that separated religions and tenets. The tenet screen itself is getting updated to "show tenet effects and how to adopt historic religions more clearly," Amplitude says.

     Sea of Thieves Season 6 roadmap reveals new events

The devs at Rare have provided a Sea of Thieves Season 6 roadmap laying out the next few weeks of events for the pirate game - though sadly, no update on a fix for skeleton ships. We're nearing the game's fourth anniversary, and the devs aim to celebrate with a series of events offering free items and bonus gold.

From March 18 through March 21, the Gold and Glory event will give you double XP and gold. If you log in while Gold and Glory is going, you'll also get the Golden Sailor Ship's Wheel. A pair of bonus items are available for purchase with gold: the Golden Sailor Cannon Flare from Larrina and the Anniversary Fireworks Crate from the Merchant Alliance. And if you want to spend real money, a number of Pirate Emporium items will be discounted.

Perhaps most importantly, the next narrative-driven adventure is set to launch on March 24. Titled Forts of the Forgotten, this event will last until April 7. Sadly, today's update doesn't provide info on any other changes to the game. Since the launch of Season 6, emergent world events like skeleton ships have not been spawning as frequently as they should. A week after a fix was intended to correct the issue, the problem is still present.

     This Warhammer 3 mod lets you play a non-campaign sandbox

As we all suspected he would, PCGamesN editor Rich really likes Total War: Warhammer III, the capstone in the fantasy strategy game trilogy from Creative Assembly. The one minor complaint in his Total War: Warhammer III review is that the Chaos Rift system often clashes with the rest of the campaign. If you've been frustrated by this too, we have good news: there's now a way to turn it off.

The Chaos Realm Toggle mod by DrunkFlamingo adds a tick box for when you begin a new game in Total War: Warhammer III. By default, it's checked, which keeps the Chaos Realms storyline active. But if you untick the box, that gets disabled, and the rifts to the Chaos Realms will never open.

That will leave you free to putter about, building up armies and kingdoms as you might in Total War: Warhammer III's Mortal Empires mode, when that arrives - only without the addition of the merged campaign map and the factions from the previous two games in the series. You won't be racing your best army toward a tear in the fabric of space and time every 25 turns to do battle with some chaos god's latest collection of frighteners.

     Elden Ring Radahn boss fight guide

Are you trying to defeat Starscourge Radahn in Elden Ring? There are over 80 Elden Ring bosses, but only a few of them are as fearsome as Starscourge Radahn. Despite being torn apart by Scarlet Rot, the Demi-God still has enough strength to hold back the stars and defeat any warriors who dare challenge him.

Cursed to forever wander the plains of Caelid, Radahn is capable of taking down anyone standing in his path. If you haven't attempted to fight him, there are numerous NPCs that can tell you just how dangerous he is. You need to be prepared with one of the best Elden Ring builds, as well as the best summons and weapons in the RPG game. Our Blood Loss Samurai build is perfect for the Radahn boss fight as he's weak against bleed effects.

Depending on your build, Starscourge Radahn can be one of the hardest bosses to fight against due to his remarkably versatile moveset. He can take chunks off your health from range, dealing massive amounts of damage with his gravity-powered bow and arrows. Up close, he doesn't even need to use a weapon to kill you; he obliterates his foes by slamming his body into them. Here's what you need to know to defeat Starscourge Radahn in Elden Ring.

     Open-world Stardew Valley-like Harvest Days launches in May

For those who've burned through Stardew Valley, this more open-world take on farming games has been a promising one, but the Harvest Days release date is coming a bit later than originally intended. Initially scheduled to launch into Steam Early Access on April 5, you'll have to wait an extra month to dig into the early version.

The Harvest Days release date is now set for May 12, 2022 in Steam Early Access. The devs say the game "has expanded in scope and size since its hugely successful showing at Steam's Next Fest in February", and are adding full controller support, a new in-game map, 50 more crops to raise, a desert biome, and "e-scooters".

Developed by the father-son team at Family Devs, Harvest Days expands on the farming RPG formula popularised by Stardew Valley (after its origins in Story of Seasons, of course) with a larger, three-dimensional open world to explore. You'll also find a bigger array of technological hardware to help build your farm, including vehicles to get around more quickly.

Tunic gameplay

Tunic is one of those games that popped up unexpectedly during an E3 one year and was promptly added to my Steam wishlist. All I knew back then was it starred a cute as a button fox protagonist and was some sort of adventure game. What I know now, after struggling to make my way through the first major section of the game, is that Tunic is secretly an ode to Souls-like games. Basically, it's Elden Ring, but cute.

You'll notice the Souls influence almost immediately. Our young fox starts out empty-handed, but soon finds a twig to thwack enemies with. There are no objectives or missions noted in your menu. If you want to figure anything out, you need to explore and pray you stumble across instruction booklet pages. They've scattered all about the world and you will not pick any of them up in order. Most of the notes and things you want to read will not be in your selected language. Should you locate the right pages earlier on, there are some clues, sure. But once you have followed all the clues you have, you are on your own again.

TUNIC game instruction booklet pg10

Locating the right pages helped me find my way to an actual sword and shield. It was not very fun playing without some way to block attacks. Roll dodging is fine in a pinch, however when your stamina bar is practically two rolls and you're out of breath? As soon as I found the notes that led me in its direction I was running as fast as my tiny legs allowed.

Don't misunderstand. I love exploring in games like Tunic. But I also appreciate a decent mission/objective log, instead of floundering around and retracing my steps a dozen times. Which is why while I get the thought process behind the use of a cryptic language, what is the point when it can't be translated at all?

While you might not be able to teleport (as far as I know) via the statues the same way you can Grace points in Elden Ring, they function in a very similar fashion. When you die, you respawn at the last statue you rested at. Statues also serve as upgrade points. Upgrading each stat (health, stamina, attack, etc) requires both cash and the correct item scavenged from a chest. Short on coin? Rest up and let the monsters respawn.

TUNIC game targeting

I'm not finished with the Elden Ring comparisons just yet. Don't let appearances fool you. These bosses can be a real challenge. The second boss I ran into, the Garden Knight, kept pushing me into the corners of its garden where debris pinned me in. Thirty-some frustrating attempts later and I did the unthinkable: I turned on No Fail mode. Even with items I bought or acquired via chests, such as dynamite and a magic frost dagger, in hand the Garden Knight required way more attempts than my one and done Soldier of Godrick battle.

Even immortal, it's been a really rough journey. After getting as far as I could with the pages I had, I wandered into territory where I clearly wasn't meant to survive. No Fail kept me alive, but lost and frustrated. I eventually turned it off just so I could die and escape the nightmare. The stress isn't worth it if you aren't having fun, no matter how adorable it looks. My time and sanity are precious to me.

There's a reason why I don't spend much of my time playing games in Tunic's genre. Partly because the white hairs aren't worth it. But if these sorts of adventures are what get you to roll out of bed in the morning and you already finished everything there is to do in Elden Ring, a certain adorable fox is waiting for you.

Tunic is available for the PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.

Sega's TailsTube Turns Sonic the Hedgehog's Tails into a Vtuber

Sega revealed its next Sonic the Hedgehog Vtuber will be Tails. A new TailsTube show will appear online. There's no exact release date for it yet. However, a teaser is live now and the first episode will appear the week of March 20, 2022.

The first episode is an introduction more than anything. It offered a first look at the Tails Vtuber model and voice acting. It also hinted that the show will involve Q&A sections and "special guests."

As a reminder, here's what the Sonic the Hedgehog Vtuber Sega created looked like. He debuted back in June 2021.

As far as Sonic the Hedgehog goes, there are two major releases coming up in 2022. One is the Sonic the Hedgehog 2 movie. That will appear on April 8, 2022. It features the introduction of Knuckles the Echidna to the film universe. The Sonic Frontiers open-world game is also in the works. That is expected to appear in late 2022.

The TailsTube show's first episode will air the week of March 20, 2022.

Chocobo GP Changes Will Affect Future Characters, Costumes, Tracks

Earlier in March 2022, Square Enix pledged to address some issues with its new Chocobo Racing game. Namely the issue that made trying to get new Chocobo GP characters like Cloud and Squall via the Prize Pass season pass a grind. Now, Producer Hironori Okayama committed and detailed more changes that will come to the racer. Among them is a commitment to add new Chocobo GP tracks, provide means to get missed items via another method, and to make the higher level Prize Pass items purely cosmetic costumes. In addition, people will get Mythril from the Prize Pass starting in the second season.

First, Okayama discussed the Chocobo GP Prize Pass changes. He noted that it will be easier to reach level 100. As part of that, he mentioned that the changes could result in some people leveling up right away. Each season, which will last about two months, will add two new characters. However, Okayama also said, "Taking this thinking further, we will now have cosmetic items, such as costumes that don't affect gameplay, as the high-level Prize Pass rewards, or as items on sale in the Mythril Shop." Also, while the update did confirm Cloud and Squall are "limited edition items" for the first season, it also said "We are also considering making these items available again later in a different form, so that players who started playing later do not miss out."

As for new Chocobo GP tracks, more will show up after season 1 ends on May 16, 2022. Okayama didn't mention how many new courses will appear. However, he did confirm that even people with the free lite version will be able to access them in some ways.

Finally, people won't have to wait until season two for some changes to take affect. The update confirmed that the team is working to fix some bugs and balancing issues. So some patches will arrive before then.

Chocobo GP is available on the Nintendo Switch in paid and lite versions, and the current Prize Pass includes the characters Cloud and Squall. Season one will end in-game on May 16, 2022.

     Stray Gods trailer dialogueWhen thinking of an RPG franchise like Dragon Age, you probably would never associate it with something like a musical. But a musical is exactly what Dragon Age lead writer and world creator, David Gaider, wants to make. This project actually existed as far back as 2019, and it went by the name Chorus: An Adventure Musical for the longest time. But a recently released teaser trailer revealed that this project, which publisher Humble Games refers to as "the Roleplaying Musical," now goes by the name Stray Gods. Gaider has worked on the game alongside other notable industry veterans. Alongside is Austin Wintory, the composer known for his work on Journey, and Liam Esler, one of the developers behind Baldur's Gate: Siege of Dragonspear. Initially, the developers planned for Stray Gods to last around two hours, but thanks to Humble Games' support, the game's scope has grown quite a bit. Notably, Wintory stated that his score for Stray Gods surpasses all the...
