Band Together in Terror: The Outlast Trials Review

The Outlast Trials proves that survival horror can be more fun with friends.

The Outlast Trials is a four-player PvE game taking place in the Cold War era.

Owner ByteDance has 270 days to sell off TikTok.

On April 24, President Joe Biden signed a foreign aid package that also included a bill that could ban TikTok in the United States. This ban can only be averted if the China-based company that owns TikTok, ByteDance, sells off the popular social media app before the 270 day time limit is up.

    Baldur's Gate 3 Devs Warn Against Starting Early Access Now

    Progress is getting wiped in 3 weeks when the game launches.

    Baldur's Gate 3 studio Larian Studios says it would be kind of dumb for players to dive too deep into the current Early Access release. The studio says that no progress from the Early Access release will carry over to the full game when it launches on August 3rd. They instead say to look at a purchase of the Early Access release as "essentially a pre-order."
