The Elder Scrolls Online: Elsweyr
The newest chapter in the epic story of The Elder Scrolls Online, the Elsweyr expansion has just launched on PC in Early Access.

Elsweyr adds a huge location of the same name – the homeland of Khajiits. The dragons are back in Tamriel, and you are about to embark on an epic journey where you’ll have to deal with the attacks of legendary flying lizards. Moreover, the expansion adds a brand new playable class, Necromancer, a huge number of side quests, dungeons, improvements, and much more.

Initially starting as a PC response to Monster Hunter on consoles, Dauntless has eventually become something more than just that. After a few years of testing, the game has finally reached the full release. Gameplay-wise, it is still a lot like Monster Hunter – you pick your Slayer and go on hunting frightening Behemoths. However, Dauntless features a welcoming visual style, unique mechanics, a huge variety of customization options, and an overall rewarding process of playing. Here’s another huge online world for you to find yourself lost in – along with your trusty pals.

The newest sci-fi thriller, Observation does a great job at creating a grim and anxious atmosphere of an abandoned space station, which is hiding a lot of dark secrets. This unique adventure offers you a rare opportunity to experience the events of an otherwise ordinary game through the electronic eyes of an onboard AI called S.A.M. You take the role of the unemotional machine in order to help Dr Emma Fisher to uncover the truth behind the disappearance of the crew – and the very actions of the AI itself. It is a thoughtful adventure, and you are likely to stay deeply satisfied with it.

Team Sonic Racing
Team Sonic Racing has recently proven that the genre of kart racing is not necessarily dominated by Mario Kart. Strictly speaking, it’s pretty much the same game, but Team Sonic Racing obviously features well-known characters from the universe of the blue hedgehog-speedster. One might argue that Sonic doesn’t need to be in a car at all to compete with racing karts, although for the sake of justice and giving other characters a chance to win this should work perfectly fine. To cut the story short, if you happened to play Mario Kart before – you know exactly what’s awaiting you in Team Sonic Racing. With the only exception that there’s Sonic instead of Mario and Robotnik instead of Bowser.

Pathologic 2 – Part 1
A deeply atmospheric and creepy narrative-driven survival horror, Pathologic 2 – Part 1 tells the story of a town ravaged by a mysterious plague that slowly turns the citizens into madmen. It is more of a comprehensive remake of the original game rather than a proper sequel but it still adds a lot to the initial formula. However, your general task is still to solve the mystery of this sick town, and at the same time, you need to survive in order to help those who are still worth saving. The game features complex “cause and effect” mechanics of decision-making, and your actions will define the fate of the poor town.

Total War: Three Kingdoms
Here comes our record breaker – the most successful title in the history of the Total War franchise. Total War: Three Kingdoms rapidly became a true blockbuster for Creative Assembly – this exceptionally well-executed and quality strategy has once again proven who the boss of the genre is. The game tells an accurate story that happened during one of the most exciting eras of Chinese history. Three Kingdoms unite their forces to define the fate of the country, which is oppressed by the brutal regime of the tyrant Dong Zhuo. He’s the puppeteer behind the back of the child-emperor, and his actions might lead to the irreversible consequences for China. It’s not only about the engaging story though, as the game introduces a bunch of new mechanics and quality-of-life improvements for the series. A true masterpiece, if you ask.

Battalion 1944: Eastern Front
After Battalion 1944 has spent more than a year in Early Access on Steam, the game is finally playable as a finished and polished product. Well, sort of, because the Steam users are still complaining over performance issues. As an indie title at its core, Battalion 1944: Eastern Front still has a long way to go, but it’s an entertaining and skill-dependent World War II shooter with huge potential in competitive gaming already. To back this idea up, the devs have implemented the native support of Faceit tournament module in the game. If you are longing to relive the pure experience of the original Call of Duty games, this might be the case for you, although Battalion has taken a more realistic approach towards gameplay.
