Square Enix’s Avatar: The Last Airbender mobile game soft-launches today

Square Enix London Mobile and Nickelodeon have announced the soft launch of Avatar: Generations, a new free-to-play RPG mobile game based on the hit anime Avatar: The Last Airbender. Players in Canada, Denmark, South Africa, and Sweden will be able to play the game on Android and iOS starting today, and it will be expanded to other territories in the following months.

Avatar: Generations is being developed by Canada-based studio Navigator Games, and it expands upon the Avatar franchise and puts players in the shoes of Aang, Katara, Sokka, and other fan-favorite characters as they travel around the world to help Aang fulfill his destiny of mastering all four elements and being the Avatar. As the title suggests, the game will have expansions focusing on Avatar Kyoshi, Roku, Korra, and others across the timelines of the Four Nations.

The game allows players to revisit some of their favorite locales from the show, like the Northern Water Tribe and Ba Sing Se, and experience new stories that expand the lore of the Avatar universe. The gameplay experience features squad-based battles, adventure sequences, and upgrades and customization systems players need to recruit new characters and increase their team.

Will Moore, CEO of Navigator Games, said that Avatar: Generations will appeal to fans of the original series and RPGs, even if some of them have never played traditional RPG games.

“With a globally beloved brand of this level, we’ve endeavored to create a game that expands the rich and storied universe of Avatar: The Last Airbender in a way that feels authentic and exciting to fans of the series and RPG games alike. At the same time, we’ve ensured that the game remains accessible to anyone who doesn’t traditionally play RPGs” Moore says in a press release. “Our partners at Square Enix London Mobile have been hugely supportive in these efforts, and we’re working closely with our community during this soft-launch period to make the best version of the game possible.”

Avatar: The Last Airbender has spawned console games that were set during the events of the show 16 years ago, but they were met with mixed reception from critics. However, Aang and his friends are gaining prominence in the gaming scene by making appearances in other games, including SMITE and the recently released Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl. 

Avatar: Generations is expected to officially launch later this year.

The Division Resurgence: release date speculation, news, and rumors
The Division Resurgence

With news that The Division 3 is in development, it's understandable that some fans of Ubisoft's third-person shooter franchise may have overlooked an upcoming spinoff that's set to launch sometime this year. The Division Resurgence is a free-to-play mobile entry in the series that will bring all of the same thrills and kills to a much smaller screen. While you're waiting for this next outing (and all of the loot waiting within), take a look at what we know so far about The Division Resurgence.
Release date

The Division Resurgence does not have an exact release date quite yet. The game has been delayed multiple times, but Ubisoft has stated that players can now expect to get their hands on it at some point in late 2024.

3 Xbox Game Pass games to play over Memorial Day weekend (May 24-27)
Senua carries a torch in Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2.

This was a big week for Xbox as it received its first console-exclusive first-party game of the year in Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2. We're also approaching a holiday weekend where you'll have a lot more time to play video games if you so choose. As such, there's one really easy recommendation I can make to people looking for what to play this weekend. Hellblade 2 is a very dark and mature game that depicts what it's like to have psychosis, though, so my other recommendations are a little more lighthearted.

The first is an indie game that launched in Xbox Game Pass earlier this month, where players control a cat exploring a city. The other is a collection of classic Pac-Man games that is leaving Xbox Game Pass very soon. Those two are worth checking out if you want some more relaxing, gameplay-focused fun this weekend after the intense experience Xbox Game Studios' latest offers.

Memorial Day is coming up, so you're probably wondering what games you should play on your PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 5 over the holiday weekend. Lucky for you, a new batch of games were added to the PlayStation Plus Premium and Extra game catalog earlier this week, and it brought plenty of games well worth your time. Three in particular stand out to me; download them today and try them out over the next few days.

The first is a Western from Rockstar Games that needs little introduction and is a must-play if you haven't experienced it yet. The next is an open-world game that kick-started a new series for Ubisoft and turns 10 next week. Finally, a retro PlayStation 1 game that just came to PlayStation Plus Premium offers up a good time if you enjoy sports or racing games.
