Around the gaming horn

Ready to relive the adventures of Nathan Drake? Check out this trailer for Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection before it hits the PS5 next week. (PC owners, don’t worry, it’s coming for you later this year.)

If you’re waiting to get serious, here’s the first 10 minutes of the new standalone expansion to Serious Sam 4. It’s Serious Sam: Siberian Mayhem and it’s out this Tuesday!

Here’s the latest reveal for the upcoming Total War: Warhammer 3. It’s the new Daemon Prince, a new playable Legendary Lord. The time to take up arms against the Ruinous Powers is almost at hand when Toral War: Warhammer 3 hits on February 17 on PC. And it will be day one on PC Game Pass.

The list of Steam Deck supported games is growing. Check out Aerial_Knight’s Never Yield on Valve’s handheld.
