Several new Dune games have been in the works following the successful release of the movie last year, with strategy game Dune: Spice Wars out now in early access - but there's also a Dune MMO game coming, and now we may have got our first idea of what the villainous Harkonnens could look like in that game.
We've known for a long time that a Dune MMO survival game is in development at Funcom, the team behind Conan Exiles. However, in the last two years, we haven't even seen a single piece of artwork from the new Dune.
Now, two artists working at Funcom have revealed a detailed 3D model for a character called Captain Iakin Nefud Harkonnen. While they do label it as "fan art" (quotes theirs), Rui Pereira is a 3D character artist at Funcom working on Conan Exiles and Dune, and 3D hair artist Andre Pires also confirms he is working on Dune. Consequently, it at least gives fans a possible idea as to where the Dune game is going in terms of character designs - who knows, this captain may even appear in the final game.

Apex Legends players have noticed what appears to be a new Mad Maggie bug preventing her riot drill from dealing damage through Newcastle's mobile shield. Maggie's riot drill ability attaches to solid obstacles and burns enemies located on the other side, making it an ideal way to flush rival players out from behind obstacles or shields in the battle royale game, but it's currently not working as intended.
Normally, the drill works against defences created by legend abilities, such as Gibraltar's dome of protection and Newcastle's mobile shield, as well as on natural cover, walls, and doors. However, since the recent Awakening event update during Apex Legends season 13, which provided several other fixes for Newcastle, it seems as though the riot drill is being prevented from affixing to the newest legend's shield.
Reddit user Sweatyeagle8497 initially posted a clip showing the bug in action, though it wasn't enough to stop them from taking down their opponent. They then did some testing and found that it happened consistently - with the riot drill not attaching to the shield and instead refreshing its cooldown. So at least you don't lose it, then, but you also don't get its intended benefit.Apex Legends characters guide, Apex Legends skins, Apex Legends map guide

Vampiric survival game V Rising has already proven a hit on Steam but it's still only in early access, so there's a lot more content coming. In a new interview, the vampire game's developer reveals plans for the V Rising endgame - which includes the return of Dracula and "Game of Thrones vibes."
Stunlock Studios has previously revealed that the V Rising 1.0 release will be an "evolution" of the current game, and teased "super exciting additions coming." Now, in a new interview with streamers Asmongold and Rich Campbell, Stunlock teased a few more details about its future plans for the endgame.
"Our ambition is to bring back Dracula," confirms game director Peter Ilves. He continues, "what is his role, will you be able to challenge him, will you be able to become Dracula in the endgame, will you be sitting on the Throne of Darkness?" These are all questions the team has been "really intrigued about" and players will "definitely see" Dracula's return "as some sort of big event" at some point.V Rising server settings, V Rising tips, The best V Rising base locations

Space Bob vs. The Replicons is an ambitious 2D game about flying your spaceship onto a procedurally generated planet surface, gathering resources and tethering them to your ship, then blasting back into orbit to explore more of outerspace. There's a new trailer for it below, but it's not a new game. Space Bob launched in 2018, sold poorly, and then its developer left the games industry. That developer is returning now to take a second swing at the game and released a major update earlier this week.

I don't buy every iteration of FIFA, but I do want to give each entry a whirl to see how it has rebalanced the balls, tweaked the kicks, and polished the grass. Xbox Game Pass now helps me in my tests by, eventually, adding each iteration, and FIFA 22 is now available through the subscription service as part of June's haul of new games.
Also added this past week: the Shadowrun Trilogy, Total War: Three Kingdoms, Naraka: Bladepoint. And Far Cry 5 will arrive on July 1st.

Blade Runner: Enhanced Edition launched this week, upping the resolution and increasing the framerate of Westwood's ancient adventure game in ways that make it look consistently worse than the original. If you bought the game on GOG, you could at least switch over to the superior ScummVM release, but not on Steam... Until earlier today, when Blade Runner Classic was added to the Steam version, too.

After getting through Gen's Psync in AI: The Somnium Files – nirvanA Iniative, you finally get the third piece of paper containing the information you need to understand Tearer's instructions. I'm going to explain how to do it first, in case you'd like to reason it out with a bit of help. Afterward, I'll just straight up tell you what to put into the text box. I'll start by saying that this is almost exactly the same as a puzzle you've done before, namely the one in the park with the Alfree machine. Here's what the pieces of paper say: 1 HO ST 2 UN RA 3 IN DG Thinking back to the Alfree puzzle, you had to look at the pieces and connect them diagonally. You have to do the exact same thing here. Start at HO, then look at letters diagonal to it. Then connect those letters to their diagonal. Continue as if IN DG was above HO ST. Putting them together correctly will give you HORA INST UNDG, which you'll need to enter into the te...

At two points in AI: The Somnium Files – nirvanA Iniative, the game requires you to answer questions using knowledge gleaned from advancing your way through other routes. Obviously, you're going to want to do the main story path first, but this guide will tell you how to answer if you've simply forgotten or don't know what you're supposed to be doing. Technically, both of these will contain spoilers, but they truly don't mean much out of context. Regardless, I'm going to keep story spoilers to a minimum for anyone who just wants the answers and little else. The first big divergence is very early on in the game. In Mizuki's chapter 0, AKA the prologue, she Psyncs with Ryuki. There's a sequence with the two of them sitting in the interrogation room when the game asks you if you know the identity of the killer. Granted, it's not actually asking you to give the killer's real name, but a pseudonym given to you in the two Ryu...
