While the company has a long-standing relationship with Valve, they like the ease of installing mods on Steam. In an interview with PC Gamer, project lead Jeff Gardiner and development director Chris Mayer said the decision to use Steam as the platform to release their game made sense.
The latest update for Fallout 76 has released a new event called “Test Your Metal.” In this new quest, you need to investigate a side branch called Blood Eagles.
There, you’ll learn that the Rut Eagles have been gathering robot parts and building a massive army of combat bots. The new quest is available at the Metal Dome.
Another major change in Fallout 76 is a new game mode called “Fallout Worlds”. This new feature lets players explore an alternate Appalachia. These worlds are divided into two categories: Public Worlds and Custom Worlds. These new environments offer different rules for the game.
News on Epic Games – Middle-earth: Shadow of War
Middle-earth: Shadow of War is an action role-playing video game. It was developed by Monolith Productions and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. The game is the sequel to Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. It was released worldwide on October 10, 2017.
Shadow of War continues the storyline of the original Middle-earth game, which began in Mordor. It features the same world as the first game, but it is a more cinematic adaptation of the story.
In fact, the events in this game are much closer to those of Peter Jackson’s films than Tolkien’s. Middle-earth: Shadow of War is a great choice for gamers who love the Lord of the Rings franchise.
Shadow of War continues the story of the Shadow of Mordor in the Middle-earth world. Players control Talion, a human ranger with the spirit of Celebrimbor.
They fight against the evil armies of orcs, battling with brutal attacks and savage tactics. It can be incredibly challenging, especially when the enemies grow stronger and more powerful.
Shadow of War’s combat and overarching story are great. However, there are a lot of grueling hours to be spent completing quests. The combat is mostly melee, and the weapons used are swords, arrows, and knives. Some of the attacks result in decapitation and dismemberment.
News on Epic Games – Glass Masquerade
If you love art deco style and stained glass windows, you’re going to love Glass Masquerade, the jigsaw puzzle game from Digerati.

In its second installment, players will experience a unique puzzle experience with the game’s Illusions mode. This mode is a new puzzle type that draws inspiration from stained-glass art.
Players will piece together a series of pieces to create a unique and magical artwork. This new puzzle mode is perfect for players of all skill levels, including those with no previous experience.
The sequel to the PC puzzle game, Glass Masquerade 2 is being released in Europe and North America on February 13th. The game will feature a launch discount of 20%.
News on Epic Games – Loom, Hero’s Hour, and Horace
This October, Amazon Prime Gaming is launching a free games lineup. The lineup will include Fallout 76, Middle-earth: Shadow of War, Total War: Warhammer II, Loom, Hero’s Hour, and Horace. The lineup will include many of the company’s popular titles.
Hero’s Hour is a fast-paced, turn-based strategy RPG. You can build cities, level up heroes, and explore procedurally-generated maps. It also lets you create a character and develop an army.
While its game system is similar to other strategy games, it has a unique twist. Its procedural generation means that it won’t be possible to build the same city the same way twice.
News on Epic Games – Free games on the Epic Games Store
You can get a free game every Thursday from the Epic Games Store. You don’t have to install the game or do any activity to get the freebie. In exchange for the freebie, the developers get a fee from the store.
In the past, the store has given away over 100 free games, and it plans to keep it that way for the rest of its life.
Free games on the Epic Games Store have been available on the store since 2018 and will continue until 2022. These freebies vary in genres, jumping between high-profile titles and more niche projects. Games like Runbow and DRL are examples of small-scale games.
They are geared towards niche audiences and involve racing to finish the levels. Despite their simplicity, they feature bright, colorful backgrounds and plenty of challenges.
The free games can be obtained by creating an account on the store or by visiting the free games page. You can download them any day of the week, but new free games are added every Thursday at 8 AM PT/4 PM GMT.
News on Epic Games – Expansion of media presence
After making a splash with its popular video game Fortnite, Epic Games is now looking to diversify its media presence.
The video game developer is already firmly established in the media world, but it’s considering other avenues to reach more players. A recent lawsuit from Apple has led the company to explore new avenues to reach its audience.
The company recently acquired video chat social network Houseparty. The move to a creator-friendly business model would mirror a trend happening across the Internet.
As content creators have become influential and popular, Internet culture has changed dramatically. In addition to generating large audiences, many of these creators are using their fame to land lucrative deals with publishers.
The company’s media strategy is contingent on continuing to create content. This means making the Unreal Engine more accessible to non-technical users.
By making the engine more user-friendly, Epic hopes to keep its users interested. Its latest initiative includes a workshop on the Unreal Engine for IPA’s London headquarters on June 28.
Another partnership between Epic Games and WPP is the launch of a training program for creatives to offer a digital experience for brands in the metaverse. The program will teach creatives how to create content for virtual worlds using the Unreal Engine. Additionally, it will incorporate content targeted to specific archetypes.
News on Epic Games – Fortnite’s Xenomorph from the Alien movies
A new Fortnite map introduces the Xenomorph, a character from the Alien movies. Though not featured in the latest Alien movie, the Xenomorph is a terrifying villain. You’ll be able to floss as this alien creature in the game, which is sure to thrill fans of the Alien movies.
This non-human creature was first introduced in the 1979 movie Alien and has since been featured in the franchise’s sequels, such as Alien: Covenant. In the series, the Xenomorph has battled the Predator, and it’s likely that the two creatures will clash in the game.
A leaked image of the Xenomorph from the Alien franchise has appeared on the Internet. While Epic has not confirmed a release date, it’s safe to assume that the skin will release sometime in the future. The character will be a male. The leaker has also ruled out Sigourney Weaver’s character, Ripley.
The leaked image was shared on Twitter by a user named AltynbekHD, and it has since been shared on other social media platforms.
Fortnite’s Xenomorph might appear as a new boss in a future event. This game has been saturated with crossovers this season, but this one is unique, because the Xenomorph would fit right in with the hunter theme. Fortnite’s Xenomorph is likely to join the Predator as it’s already occupying the map.
