Avengers: War For Wakanda gets a new trailer, but no release date

The latest free update for Marvel’s Avengers, War For Wakanda, got a new trailer during Square Enix’s presentation at E3 this year. While the trailer didn’t reveal a release date for the expansion, it did go over what enemies players can expect to go up against in Wakanda.

In War For Wakanda, players will travel to the hidden kingdom to help Black Panther protect his city, and its stores of Vibranium, from AIM and its partner-in-crime, Klaw. The Avengers are called in once these forces prove too much for Black Panther to handle on his own.

The expansion will highlight Wakanda and explore Black Panther’s own story, but beyond that, it’s not entirely clear what kinds of missions or bosses will be added to Marvel’s Avengers with this expansion. A blog post from March did clarify that the War For Wakanda DLC would add new enemy types and include a power level increase.

Square Enix has been teasing the War For Wakanda expansion for Marvel’s Avengers for quite a while now. The release date for the expansion is currently labeled as “summer and beyond,” with no definitive date in sight.

Two other expansions for Marvel’s Avengers have been released recently. The first, Cosmic Cube, introduced a new villain, the Scientist Supreme. The Second, Wasteland Patrol, added Hawkeye to the game’s ever-growing roster of heroes and introduced a new mission type called “Patrol Mode.”

Marvel’s Avengers is currently available on PC via Steam, Stadia, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5.

Dune: Spice Wars: release date window, trailer, news, and more
Bases on a dessert landscape in Dune: Spice Wars.

As Frank Herbert famously wrote, fear is the mind-killer, but after decades of waiting, gamers can finally put their fears aside as there's a new Dune game on the horizon. There was a litany of reveals and announcements at the 2021 Game Awards, but perhaps the least expected was Dune: Spice Wars from developer Shiro Games. While excitement is surging again for this franchise thanks to the new films adapting Herbert's world-renowned sci-fi novels, no one was expecting a tie-in game to be announced, let alone one following in the footsteps of the classic Dune II: The Building of a Dynasty from way back in 1992.

While the origins of most genres are muddled at best, it is almost undisputed that Dune 2: The Building of a Dynasty was the first true real-time strategy game. That makes it all the more appropriate for Dune: Spice Wars to return to the genre, and Shiro Games, developers of Northgard, seems like a great fit to bring this series back. This game is closer than you might expect, and while spice is the key to controlling the universe, information is a close second. Here's everything we know about Dune: Spice Wars.

Tekken 8: release date, trailers, gameplay, roster, and more
Fighting in Tekken 8.

Rumors have been floating around about a new Tekken for some time, but we've gotten firm confirmation that Tekken 8 is on the way, and it looks amazing. While the initial details revealed at Sony’s State of Play were sparse, we've got plenty of new looks and impressions of the latest 3D fighter. Here’s everything we can glean from this exciting reveal -– and what Tekken 8 looks like it has in store for its characters.
Release date

Tekken 8 will enter the ring on January 26 2024.
Expect Tekken 8 to arrive on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. It won’t be supported on last-gen systems, which makes sense with all that detailed work in Unreal Engine 5. That’s also why it won’t be coming to any mobile devices any time soon, although you could give it a shot on the Steam Deck if you don’t mind lowering performance.

Alan Wake 2: release date, trailers, gameplay, preorder, and more
Alan Wake.

The original Alan Wake is a game that went through quite a troubled development before it was finally released. After many iterations and changes in scope and direction, the final product was initially a cult hit, but didn't hit the mass market it needed -- at least not initially. After two DLC episodes, a sequel was in the works to build upon the first game and revive some of the elements that had to be cut from the first in order for it to ship, but this was ultimately not meant to be. The sequel was canceled and a smaller downloadable game, Alan Wake's American Nightmare, was released instead.

Since then, we hadn't heard from our intrepid writer until he showed up in a very unlikely place. Featured in the AWE expansion for a completely different game, Control, Alan was back in the picture. With a remaster of the initial game catching everyone up on his first appearance, now was the perfect time to announce that the long-awaited sequel was back in development. We haven't found all the manuscript pages yet, but here is everything we know about Alan Wake 2.
