The reckoning is close at hand. Judgement day, if you will. The yearly formal announcement of a new Call of Duty game. The events are either met with applause or a myriad of downvotes on YouTube, but today's livestream will likely be a high point for the franchise's rocket history as of late. It's back with Call of Duty: WWII.
Sometimes you just seem to wake up one morning and decide you need a little more conflict in your life. Not the real kind, but the virtual kind you can control yet still see spiral far from your reaches. Slitherine and The Artistocrats offer that with Order of Battle: Kriegsmarine - an expansion to their F2P hit.
By now, you're probably itching to get the full version of Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III. And why would you? We've all been waiting for this since Dawn of War II launched way back in 2009.
With 3 full campaigns, a huge mod scene with the 'Arcade', co-op missions and incredibly intricate online play, StarCraft II is one of the best supported RTS titles around.

The world is one vast, open playground. It is in real-life, and that fact only becomes more drastically true as we look at today's gaming culture. Constantly spoiled by these open spaces with developers constantly trying to build one larger than the last, it's time to look back at what makes these sandbox environments so gripping. And four of the leading development teams will be doing just that at PDXCON 2017 next month.
Give people an open world, guns and friends and they'll find every way of finding the fun. But what's being put in place to tweak Ghost Recon: Wildlands post-release? This is where we list those changes;
When it comes to strategy titles - or just PC titles as a whole, these days - there's always work to be done post release. A 1.0 version typically indicates a product shipped to the consumer in a fully fleshed-out and finished state. But when it comes to a strategy game, it's typically only the beginning.
With a dwindling eSports scene and Blizzard long making it clear that Legacy of the Void was the final expansion, Starcraft 2 is, essentially, done. Though still needing a team to keep the cogs rolling on minor new content, it hardly needs to tie down one of the company's most prolific designers.
