Unlike other role-playing games, Elden Ring's lack of a quest log requires players to really pay attention to dialogue and the world around them to follow along with certain NPC storylines. But the beginning of one questline was so well-hidden that FromSoftware took steps to make sure folks would naturally gravitate…

     Elden Ring's worst bosses are FromSoft's best worst bosses

Everyone knows that the first playthrough of a new Soulslike game is something special - and slaying Elden Ring bosses still delivers that rush - but we're getting to the point where FromSoftware veterans have seen most of what the studio's formula has to offer. Those gasps of awe are turning into the comfortable grind of New Game+ runs, or fresh playthroughs with new builds using wacky weapons (goodbye Uchigatana; I loved you in my first Elden Ring build, but you're too OP to keep).

Every FromSoft game since Demon's Souls has included at least a couple of 'gimmick' bosses to shake up the gameplay. These games became renowned for the frantic experience of trying to survive long enough to learn the timing of barely telegraphed, one-shot attacks from towering bosses, and by contrast, their gimmick bosses are almost amusing puzzles.

On your first playthrough, fights like Demon's Souls' Dragon God, Dark Souls's invisible Priscilla, or Dark Souls III's Ancient Wyvern are a palate-cleansing respite. But as you roll new characters or delve into successive New Game Pluses, they can start to just feel like annoying roadblocks; time-sinks you have to push past to get to the actual fun and challenging fights.

     The new Lego Star Wars is the biggest Lego or Star Wars game on Steam

Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga launched on Steam just a few hours ago, and it's already the biggest game from either franchise in the history of Valve's platform. With 82,517 concurrent players as of this writing (via SteamDB), it's reached Steam's current top 10 games, and that player count absolutely dwarfs any Lego or Star Wars game that's come before.

For comparison, the current player count for the new Lego Star Wars puts it around the current levels of Destiny 2, Rust, and Grand Theft Auto V. All those games, however, are dwarfed by the likes of CS:GO, Dota 2, Lost Ark, Elden Ring, Apex Legends, and PUBG, which regularly reach hundreds of thousands of concurrent players.

The previous biggest Star Wars game on Steam by concurrent player count was Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, which reached 46,550 players at launch in 2019. The only other games to even break 10k are Squadrons, The Old Republic, and the modern Battlefront II. But there's an important caveat here, as prior to 2019, EA kept all its PC launches (and thus, all its Star Wars games) exclusive to Origin.

     Vampire Survivors has a new stage, new character, and more

There's a whole batch of new content for breakout hit roguelike game Vampire Survivors out today in a new Early Access patch. The update, dubbed patch 0.4.2, adds a brand new stage called the tower. There are seven new achievements to unlock, which means you can expect a new weapon, a new weapon evolution, and more.

The new stage is Vampire Survivors' spookiest level yet, with gothic skull statues, a deep blue tiled floor, and vampire-friendly red carpeting accenting the staircases and traps littered around the floor. It features a new set of enemies and special events, and if you've been following along since last time, it'll mark another step toward your ultimate goal of finding the resting place of the vampire himself.

If you want to work out how to acquire all of this new stuff yourself, you may want to stop reading here. Part of the fun in Vampire Survivors is experimenting with new builds and discovering the new synergies yourself, so we completely understand if you want to go in blind.

     Fortnite 20.10 update paves the way for Assassin's Creed skins

Fortnite's 20.10 update is proving to be a mixed bag. Epic Games has nerfed the damage on several weapons, though plenty is happening over at The Daily Bugle and we are getting some Assassin's Creed skins.

The Daily Bugle battle is probably the biggest part of the update you can play right now, as a new skirmish has kicked off between IO and Resistance forces. You can get involved and help out, but Huntmaster Saber has been moved to the area, so keep an eye out. In terms of weapons, the heavy sniper rifle is back and does extra damage to vehicles, which is good news for anyone who's sick of being run over. There have also been tweaks to the combat SMG, stinger SMG, MK-seven, and combat assault rifle to reduce their damage.

Nobody likes to see nerfs, which might be why the reactions to this one from some big names in the Fortnite community are less than good, with HYPEX describing it as the "worst update of Chapter 3 so far". On the plus side though, we're getting a new skin to look forward to. Assassin's Creed Valhalla's protagonist Evior is coming to the game alongside Ezio.

     Here's the PCGamesN Theatre schedule for W.A.S.D

The inaugural W.A.S.D games show is kicking off at London's Tobacco Dock this week. You're getting many games to try from publishers like Sega, Devolver Digital, Team17, and heaps more. There are also oodles of insightful talks to attend, and this orange site is hosting a good few of them.

We're kicking things off on Saturday, April 7, with a session on getting streamers to play and market developer's games with insight from Fourth Floor's Luke Ashworth, Devolver's Clara Sia, Team17's Rebecca Larkin, and Two Angry Gamers' Tommy and Adam. Running such a chat takes someone with influencer know-how, so we've tapped our sister site The Loadout to run the rule over this one. We've also got other panels on topics like sustainability and the future of games media.

Friday and Saturday are equally packed with constructive chats. You've got two panels on the trends of nostalgia and relaxation in games featuring Two Point Studios, Team17, and Ustwo developers. We're also talking to YouTuber Alastair' Ali-A' Aiken about his career, how content creators can make a name for themselves, and a new special project supported by YouTube.

     We still can't believe this Minecraft zipline is real

The Minecraft subreddit is an absolute fountain of cool stuff for new and old players alike. There are always new discoveries on there, incredible Minecraft builds, and even some useful tips too. It's worth visiting, even if you're not a Redditor, because of the sheer wealth of things to see there. However, one post stands above all others on Reddit. It's the most upvoted Minecraft post of all time. and it's about one very cool zipline.

The zipline appeared on the Minecraft subreddit two years ago thanks to a user called ShrimpySeagull, and it's honestly hard to believe it's real. ShrimpySeagull put the 92 second-long video up with a title explaining it uses over 1,000 command blocks. Command blocks are a special kind of block that a lot of players will probably never try, that can be used to carry out different commands, and effectively allow players to program things into the game without using mods.

So, while it all looks as though it shouldn't be possible in the game, it actually is. The animation and functionality of the thing is impressive enough on its own, but the real magic comes when reading ShrimpySeagull's explanation in the comments. "Basically, virtually everything that composes of the cannon and the chair is an entity of some sort, each with different sizes for different needs."

     Ubisoft confirms Ghost Recon Breakpoint is dead

Is Ghost Recon Breakpoint dead less than three years after its troubled release? That's what it looks like, as Ubisoft has effectively confirmed the end of Breakpoint support, saying that it has released its "final piece of content" for the online co-op game.

The Ghost Recon Breakpoint release date was October 2019 and the multiplayer game wasn't particularly fondly received. PCGamesN's review of Breakpoint called it a "muddled game that trips over itself by implementing mechanics from various genres, but never fully expands on their potential" - and other critics were just as merciless.

November 2021 saw the release of Operation Motherland, which was a proper new single-player campaign. Apart from Ubisoft Quartz NFT nonsense, that was the last update Breakpoint received - and now, Ubisoft confirms on Twitter that no further content is being produced. The publisher will "continue to maintain" the servers for both Breakpoint and Wildlands, but now it seems like the most recent Ghost Recon game is effectively dead.

     Best gaming mouse 2022 – The top clickers for your setup

Picking the best gaming mouse isn't as easy as it used to be, with more gaming PC brands to choose from than ever before. To make matters more complicated, advancements in low latency technologies mean even the best wireless gaming mouse is just as capable of securing frags as its wired brethren.

Nailing down what the best gaming mouse for your needs can be tricky, as it's a delicate balance of finding the right mix of features and design. You have to juggle comfort, ergonomics, performance, reliability, specs, and, as always, aesthetics. Figure out which of these attributes are most important to you, and then take a dive into the comparisons below.

While it used to be as simple as buying Logitech or Razer, competition is hot with digital rodents from SteelSeries, Corsair, HyperX, and more in 2022. We've tested a wide variety of gaming mice and have narrowed down our favourites based on the genres of games, grip styles, and hand sizes they're most suited to. You'll also find more affordable options too for those of you that don't mind sacrificing a few features.

     Destiny 2: what is the Nightfall weapon this week?

Want to know what this week's Destiny 2 Nightfall weapon is? Each week you've got a chance at a different weapon for completing Nightfall Strikes, and ever since Season of the Lost, fan-favourite legacy weapons from the original Destiny have been added to the rotation. Two new weapons were introduced into the pool in Season of the Risen, so it's more important than ever to know in advance the Nightfall weapon schedule.

In case you don't know what the Destiny 2 Nightfall weapon means, Nightfall: The Ordeal is a playlist available in the Vanguard menu, alongside the basic Strike playlist. Each week, a different Strike is chosen as the Nightfall, and offered in five escalating difficulties, with harder enemies, challenging modifiers, and enemy power levels cranking up.

The coveted Nightfall weapons have a chance to drop from any Nightfall Strike difficulty, but it's far more likely at higher levels. Your best bet for farming each week's Nightfall weapon is to set the Strike to Master difficulty, according to YouTuber Aztecross. You should also note that there's no automatic matchmaking above Hero difficulty, however, so you'll need to get a squad together.

     The best webcams in 2022

They might be a basic gaming PC accessory, but the best webcams are priceless portals to the outside world. Investing in a reliable cam allows us to connect with colleagues while working from home, and it could even kickstart your career as a Twitch streamer. Sure, we're perhaps getting a bit ahead of ourselves with the latter, but you can still do a lot better than the built-in lens on your daily driver, as even the best gaming laptop can't compete with a dedicated device.

Razer, Logitech, and Avermedia pack the best webcams with up to 4K resolution, a smooth 60fps, and some even work better in the dark with low-light sensors. They're backed by software that makes customisation easy, so you can stop that pesky autofocus from blurring your face during all-important Discord, Zoom, or Google Meet calls and tinker with the colour balance.

Nothing quite beats the quality of Sony's dedicated DLSR cameras if you're a content creator, but these webcams are feature-rich while keeping the price between $30 and $200. They even fit right on top of the best gaming monitor without the need for a stand. There's something for everyone, no matter your use case.

     Fortnite Klombo-sized snow mound locations

Want to know where to find the three Klombo-sized snow mounds in Fortnite? As if there aren't already a lot of challenges in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2, including the recent Resistance challenges to destroy data receivers and place weapon schematics, there is a secret set of challenges that won't show up on your list.

To begin these challenges, you need to head to the northwest corner of the map, close to the Seven Outpost, and examine one of the Fortnite Klombo-sized mounds. If you missed them from the previous season, Fortnite Klombos are gentle giant dinosaurs that eat discarded weapons. Once you find a mound, you'll get a prompt at the top of your screen asking you to find the other two.

All three Klombo mounds you need to find are in the same area, and you simply need to approach them to check off progress towards completing the first of these secret challenges for the popular battle royale game. To help you find them quickly, we have a map showing all the locations.

     Next Tomb Raider game will

Crystal Dynamics has just announced the next Tomb Raider game, which has entered development on Unreal Engine 5. Epic revealed a host of details on the new engine as part of its 'State of Unreal' stream today, and officially launched Unreal 5 for all developers. The stream was capped off by an announcement from Tomb Raider's franchise GM, Dallas Dickinson.

"Crystal Dynamics is proud to be a part of the launch of Unreal Engine 5," Dickinson says. "This new engine translates into next level storytelling in gameplay experiences. And that's why we are thrilled to announce today that we have just started development of our next Tomb Raider game powered by Unreal Engine 5. Our goal is to push the envelope of fidelity and to deliver the high-quality cinematic action-adventure experience that fans deserve from both Crystal Dynamics and the Tomb Raider franchise."

The main Tomb Raider series has largely been in the hands of Crystal Dynamics since Tomb Raider: Legend in 2006, outside of Shadow of the Tomb Raider in 2018, which was led by Eidos Montreal. All of those games, including the modern reboot trilogy, have made use of an in-house engine.

     PC Game Pass April free games – adventures and a war game

Today, Microsoft has revealed the PC Game Pass April free games list for the first half of the month, and it contains sports games, adventure games, and strategy games - as well as several great offerings from EA on the Cloud, including Dragon Age 2 and one of the best Star Wars games on PC.

Last month's Game Pass offerings featured some great indie games, and now April's first PC Games Pass list contains a couple of popular franchises too. Life is Strange: True Colours is probably the highlight, which PCGamesN's reviewer was greatly taken with last year. Panzer Corps 2 is great for anyone looking for a WW2 war game.

For anyone with Game Pass Ultimate, coming to the Cloud on the EA Play side are the heavyweights of Dragon Age 2 and Star Wars: Squadrons, although we're not sure anyone is excited about Plants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare when the series' latest shooter Battle for Neighborville is free to keep on Prime Gaming.

     Total War: Warhammer 3's massive 1.1.0 patch has arrived

Total War: Warhammer III's big 1.1.0 update has arrived, along with a beefy list of patch notes. The update touches just about every aspect of the strategy game, and adds some new features and options that will make the campaign more interesting and, hopefully, a bit less frustrating at key points.

For most players, the most broadly impactful changes in this update are the ones made to the Realm of Chaos campaign. As promised, the effects of the negative traits gained by entering the Chaos Realms has been roughly halved across the board, and Daemon legendary lords won't experience any negative trait effects whatsoever while traveling through their patron god's realm. All negative traits associated with a realm are now removed as soon as your lord has completed the survival battle there.

The race to collect souls works a bit differently now, too. When you intercept an AI lord at the Forge of Souls, they'll lose all the souls they've collected so far, rather than being wounded for 15 turns. It's now possible to block chaos rifts from spawning in your provinces by building the 'protection' chain of structures in a local settlement.

     Roblox music codes April 2022 – the best song IDs

Looking for Roblox music codes? There are thousands of popular songs available to listen to in Roblox, simply by entering music ID codes into your boombox or the radio. Using song IDs, you can play your favourite TikTok songs in games with your friends.

So how do you play music in Roblox? The method varies depending on which game you want to blast your tunes in. Some games allow you free access to the boombox - simply equip and press it to bring up a text box in which you can enter a song ID code. Catalog Heaven is a great place to test the Roblox music codes you find, as it allows you to equip any boombox in the shop and try it out.

In most games, however, you'll need to use the radio to play music. This is usually part of a paid Game Pass - the price of a Game Pass is set by each game developer individually. Once you have access to the radio, you can use it in the same way as the boombox - simply enter the song ID code and press play. Occasionally, tracks are taken down by Roblox, so if a code stops working, you'll have to look for a replacement. Here are the best radio music codes in Roblox that work in April 2022:

     Oculus Quest 2 is still top, but Valve Index gains ground

The Oculus Quest 2 is still one of the most popular headsets on the market, but more Steam users opted for a Valve Index last month over Meta's best VR headset. According to the latest Steam Hardware Survey, the percentage of Quest 2 users on gaming PC only increased by 0.27%, while uptake of Valve's virtual reality gear jumped by 0.66%.

Normally, the Oculus Quest 2 gains more new users than any other VR headset, with the only exception being back in September 2021 thanks to halted sales in Australia (via UploadVR). This time, the Quest 2's second-place uptake ranking hasn't got a mitigating circumstance, but it does follow a controversial decision to re-brand the device as the Meta Quest 2.

The third most popular VR headset, the Oculus Rift S, saw a 0.54% decline in users this month, which suggests a movement towards newer devices. Of course, part of that figure could comprise of PC gamers that are no longer interested in virtual reality, but some may have jumped ship to either the Quest 2 or the Valve Index. Providing that theory has merit, we might see more former Rift S invest in an Index, rather than a Meta device.

     Apex Legends ranked system: Season 12 rank split date, maps, and more

Want to learn more about ranked play in Apex Legends? If you want to take your battle royale game skills to the next level, fighting against unranked players isn't going to cut it. First off, you need to earn a rank by playing several ranked matches until you establish your skill level. Once you start to find it difficult to earn points every game, you can use ranked matches to learn how to become a better player.

Apex Legends features two types of ranked play: Ranked Arenas and Ranked Battle Royale, with the points you earn being separate for each and if you reach the highest rank in Ranked Battle Royale, this won't have any impact on your Ranked Arena status. Season 12 isn't going to change the Apex Legends Ranked System, but there are plenty of additions that should have an impact at the highest levels of play.

To go beyond Bronze, the lowest ranked tier, you must reach a ranked points (RP) threshold first. While one streamer managed to go from the bottom to top rank in a single session, this process is going to take most people weeks, if not months to slowly climb the ranked ladder. Here's everything you need to know about the ranked system in Apex Legends, including the ranked tiers, penalties, and rewards on offer.

     Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodhunt system requirements

If you're looking to sink your teeth into the next best battle royale game, then we'd suggest checking out the Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodhunt system requirements ahead of its release later this month. However, you may need to conduct a few small upgrades to your gaming PC in order to partake in the bloody nighttime clan-on-clan action.

If your graphics card leans towards the minimum specs of the Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodhunt system requirements, then AMD FSR support should prove a wonderful boon and help boost fps to higher levels versus running the game at your native resolution. Unfortunately, there's no sign of Nvidia DLSS support for those with GeForce RTX GPUs.

While the majority of the game's required specs should be easy enough for most systems to accommodate, developer Sharkmob recommends that you play Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodhunt on the best SSD for gaming that you can afford. Arming yourself with a solid state drive should not only improve the game's load times, but will likely assist in more speedily streaming Bloodhunt's assets as you traverse its expansive map.

     How to place Fortnite weapon schematics in Synapse Station

Want to know how to place Weapons Schematics in Synapse Station? The popular battle royale game has seen an all-out war between the Seven and the Imagined Order in previous weeks. In an effort to fight back against the invading IO forces, players can complete Resistance challenges, which in the past included recovering missing Fortnite battle bus plans and teaching Peely how to drive.

As for this week's Resistance challenges, placing the Fortnite weapon schematics in Synapse Station is the last of the tasks you need to complete. Before that, you need to destroy road barriers with any vehicle with a Cow Catcher attached or a battle bus, hit different targets with a sniper rifle, then destroy structures above a Fortnite data receiver and collect any data that drops.

To complete this challenge, once you activate the uplink, you need to activate your disguise kit before heading to specific spots in Synapse Station to place the weapon schematics and complete the challenge. Below, you'll find all of the schematics locations and details on how to activate the disguise kit.

Trying to collect the information from Fortnite data receivers? Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 has launched a war between the Imagined Order (IO) and The Seven. The new Fortnite map highlights the territories owned by each faction, including which landmarks are currently serving as battlegrounds. Don't be surprised if your favourite landmark ends up becoming a warzone over the next few weeks.

The Fortnite battle bus plans have come to fruition, and this week's Resistance challenges task you to drive these newly upgraded buses into road barriers to destroy them, and place the Fortnite weapon schematics in Synapse Station. The challenge we're focusing on requires you to destroy structures above a Fortnite data receiver before collecting its data. You only need to collect the information from two data receivers to complete the challenge.

Don't forget, in order to take on this challenge you need to finish the rest of the Resistance challenges beforehand. If you're looking to level up your battle pass, we also have a Fortnite Omni Chip locations guide which is updated each week - collect all the Omni Chips to unlock the Omni Sword harvesting tool.

     The best Terraria wings

What are the best Terraria wings? Whether you're new to the popular indie game or a Terraria veteran, you're going to need these nifty accessories to take down some of the more difficult Terraria bosses.

Terraria wings are only available in hardmode (with one exception) and can be earned from quests, but they're more commonly crafted using feathers and other precious items. Some require more resources than others, but all will need a mythril or orichalcum anvil to craft. If you're creating lunar wings, you'll need to use the ancient manipulator. There's plenty to think about when looking for the best Terraria wings: how high you want to go, flight duration, speed, and of course their physical appearance (it matters, okay?).

The best starting wings in Terraria are demon wings and angel wings, which require 20 souls of flight, and then either 25 souls of night, or souls of light, depending on which version you're making. If you're ready to spread your wings and look for something better, we've included our top picks along with what you'll need.

Steam Deck makers Valve are looking to avoid any further delays in getting their portable PC to the waiting hands of reserve order holders. The Deck, which launched in February after missing a planned release in December 2021, has only just finished its first round of shipments; now it's moving into the Q2 2022 phase, Valve are "ramping up shipments" to make sure everybody gets theirs within their current order availability estimate.

That's according to the Steam Deck Twitter account, from which Valve also announced that they're clarifying what these availability estimates actually are. So far these have been given purely as Q2 2022, Q3 2022 and so on, but the Deck's Steam store page will now list the actual months in that quarter – including your personal delivery estimate, if you've already got a reservation waiting. This change won't affect when the handhelds are ready, it just saves a Google search for anyone less familiar with the business-speak of quarterly codes.

Brigandine Legend of Runersia

2020 strategy RPG Brigandine: The Legend of Runersia is coming to PC soon. Publisher Happinet announced that the game will have a global launch on PC via Steam, with a live date of May 11, 2022. The PC edition will also have some additional features to sweeten the pot for new PC players and console players looking to double-dip.

Happinet also uploaded a trailer for the PC edition of Brigandine: The Legend of Runersia. 


Brigandine: The Legend of Runersia is the sequel to the 1998 PS1 title Brigandine: The Legend of Forensa. Rather than a character-based tactical title in the vein of Final Fantasy Tactics or Fire EmblemBrigandine zooms things out to a more strategic level of play. Players are given control over one of several nations, and train units to defend their borders or go on campaigns of conquest. Its gameplay mechanics will be familiar to players of the Civilization franchise. The PC edition includes a new Creative Mode that unlocks after a player's first completion of the game. Creative Mode is a more freeform take on the game, allowing players to pick and choose a number of options according to their preferences before beginning a new campaign. Things like power balances, starting knights, and event he affiliation of each base on the map can be altered. The PC edition also adds a New Game+ option to carry over their items, and includes the Titans of the Iron Front update, which adds new monsters, AI difficulty scaling, and customization options.

Brigandine: The Legend of Runersia's story involves the six nations of Runersia in a struggle for power. Five of the six countries bear a titular Brigandine: A magically empowered relic of war. The rulers of each faction and their loyal rune knights must enter the fray to determine which nation will unite the continent under their banner. The story was written by Kenji Terada, who wrote the scenarios for Final Fantasy I, Final Fantasy II, and Final Fantasy III.

Brigandine: The Legend of Runersia launches for PC on May 11, 2022. It is currently available on Nintendo Switch and PS4. Check out Siliconera's official review of the game.

     Hypnospace Outlaw games DreamsettlerBack in 2019, developer Tendershoot released Hypnospace Outlaw, a simulation game that serves as a parody of late 1990s internet culture. It received fairly high praise from critics, but general audiences seem to have loved it even more, as it has an "overwhelmingly positive" rating based on over 2,103 user reviews on Steam. Some players may have wanted to spend more time within the world of Hypnospace Outlaw, and fortunately for them, the developers have done more than enough to answer their call. Just today, publisher No More Robots announced that Hypnospace Outlaw will receive two fully-fledged follow-up games, both of which will come out "soon." The first of these new games, Dreamsettler, functions as a spiritual successor to Hypnospace Outlaw that builds upon the world that its predecessor set up.

Alongside this announcement, it was also confirmed that the upcoming Tomb Raider game is being developed using Unreal Engine 5. The latest version of the Unreal engine comes with some key new features. First, there is Lumen, a "fully dynamic global illumination solution." That's fancy talk for adaptable lighting that changes based on the direction of the source. This source could be the sun, a flashlight or an open door. Also related to lighting, Lumen removes the need for author lightmap UVs. It's a less intensive alternative to Ray Tracing that is relatively easy for developers to implement.   And then there's Nanite, a tool that allows developers to create "experiences with massive amounts of geometric detail."
