While traversing the eponymous Plains of Eidolon, however, players should remember that the region becomes much deadlier at night. For now, Warframe: Plains of Eidolon is only available on PC, but the add-on is promised to launch soon, before the end of the year.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War will take up almost 100 GB of your PC's disk space

Middle-earth: Shadow of War has been said to be a huge game, but we haven’t expected it was going to be that big – the program takes up 97.7 GB of disk space on PC and 69.93 GB on PlayStation 4 Pro. This is probably a record game size, previously held by Forza Motorsport 7 (about 95 GB). That is partly the result of featuring 4K cut-scenes, a massive open world, three times bigger than in Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, and an impressive variety of orc tribes and orcs’ voice acting.

The idea was that you have only 60 seconds before an atomic bomb hits the ground – within that time you had to frantically collect anything you and your family would be going to need to survive the next months and hide inside a fallout shelter built beneath their house. The studio’s next game, 60 Parsecs! – is going to take that concept to outer space.

No more Horizon Zero Dawn expansions in store, but a Complete Edition has been announced

Besides, Sony has now announced that it intends to release Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition a month after that – on December 5.
