Square Enix’s MMO Final Fantasy XIV will be receiving it’s next expansion, Stormblood in June. With Stormblood comes new character classes, abilities and locations for players to travel to and quest in. Stormblood is the second expansion to Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn and will also release with a new 4.0 update. Square Enix has released a new trailer today showcasing some of the expansion’s new areas.

The Stormblood expansion will be adding a new continent to the game titled Othard that will feature new areas and dungeons. One of these new regions is a city titled “Rhalgr’s Reach” and consists of an outdoor area with large waterfalls and indoor areas as well. Rhalgr’s Reach serves as the main city in the expansion and it is also the hub of operations for the Ala Mhigan Resistance.

The next area shown is called “The Fringes” and consists of some woodland areas that feature bright plant life, canyons and rock formations. There isn’t much information given by Square about this new location except for its visual features. “The Peaks” is another section shown and as the name suggests it features a mountainous region high up in elevation that contains a fortress or city of some sort near its top.

“Kugane” is the next region shown it is a city that takes influence from old Eastern architecture and culture in its look. Kugane is a port city that is known for its docks used for foreign trading. The Ruby Sea is the next location that is shown in the trailer and it is a more open area that features open waters for players to explore. This area will utilize the new ability to dive underwater and will come with a new dungeon. The Dungeon is called “Shisui of the Violent Tides” and it is a 4-man instance that takes place entirely underwater.

Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood will release worldwide on June 20, 2017 for the PC and Playstation 4 platforms.

Critics and fans alike went crazy for Amazon’s take on the famous role-playing game series Fallout. There were a lot of nominations for 16 Emmy awards, including Best Actor and Outstanding Drama Series. The show was able to reach audiences outside of gamers and got a lot of attention from the industry.

Eurogamer has been keeping track, and now that all the votes are in, Fallout is tied for fifth place with 23 nominations for the 76th Emmy Awards, which are put on by the US Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. With 25, The Bear has the most nominations, followed by True Detective: Night Country with 23, and Shogun with 19.

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Walton Goggins is up for Best Actor for his performance as The Ghoul. Although games will always be our first choice, it’s great that adaptations of games don’t have to be awful, and we can’t wait for the next season of the shows.

Are you surprised by how well Amazon’s version of Fallout has done in the mainstream? Is the curse of movies based on video games finally over? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.
