World of Warcraft

- New Zone: The Broken Shore – Return to the original invasion site and take on brand-new quests and World Quests.
- New Dungeon: Cathedral of Eternal Night – Ascend to the spire of the Tomb of Sargeras in a new 5-player Heroic, Mythic, and Mythic Keystone dungeon.

- Duke It Out in PvP Brawls – PvP Brawls debut in WoW, rotating in a variety of modes, rules, and environments every other week as an option to the usual Battleground gameplay.
- Class Order Hall Campaign Continues – Unlock new Artifact traits, recruit a new follower, and ultimately earn a class mount.
- Flying in the Broken Isles – Complete The Broken Isles Pathfinder Achievement to earn wings.
- Expand Foothold on the Broken Isles with Region-Wide, Powerful Bonuses that are unlocked as players come together as a region to reconstruct ancient ruins.
Steam Early Access game Stellar Overload has also received significant new content. The game has added Novo Ares, a new world with a Grand Canyon-like environment with distinct differences between the heights and the depths. A new melee weapon, the hook sword, enables travel easier due to its functionality as a hookshot, and a new dungeon is also now available on the game’s first world, Merx.
The game has also added new systems to allow for more options in construction. The introduction of electricity, including cables, switches, lasers and engines, lets players control mechanisms within buildings, including elevators and monorail trains. New materials and textures also offer improved customization choices.
Divinity: Original Sin 2
Steam Early Access game Divinity: Original Sin 2 has met two more of its Kickstarter stretch goals. The Polymorph and Summoning skills are now available, giving players the ability to turn enemies into chickens, summon demon-like Incarnates, grow wings and fly. Incarnates can be upgraded for more abilities and power. In addition, the update includes a new feature, called “Make War,” where players can attack their party members. Unlike many versions of co-op duels, this one can be to the death, ending an adventure with treachery.
Mobile RPG Guardian Codex has been updated. Besides a new ranking feature, the update also adds new 4-star Guardians, new Boss Brawl details, a new training feature allowing players to gain experience points without taking Guardians in to battle, and a new skip feature to bypass some cut-scenes.
Fallout Shelter has been brought to Steam as a free title. In addition, an update across all platforms introduces over thirty new Quests and a special limited time Easter Quest that rewards players with an exclusive Legendary Pet, a free lunchbox and other rewards.
Guardians of Ember
Steam Early Access title Guardians of Ember has added its sixth and last class, the Dark Knight. A merciless fighter who uses both black magic and toxic attacks, Dark Knights have high attack power but cannot heal allies.
Steam game Unexplored has received its first DLC. Its music is now available as a free DLC official soundtrack, and includes all the in-game music as well as all the music composed for the game’s trailers, and even some previously unreleased music and original compositions, for a total of 15 tracks.
