Even if you don’t pay for Quake Champions, this patch has a lot for you. All players, free or paid, can create custom matches, and the free champion rotation now includes two champions per week.

It’s time to head into the Battle of Dazar’alor in World of Warcraft, so long as you’ve got a regular group to head into a normal raid. (You’ll have to wait for LFR and Mythic, as usual.)

Bigger everything! … [Read more...] about World of Warcraft patches in its new raid and its new season of items for Tides of Vengeance
