Legends of Runeterra Reveals New Expansion Call of the Mountain

Riot's free-to-play digital card game Legends of Runeterra has revealed the next expansion and next region coming to the game. Targon arrives in the Call of the Mountain expansion on August 26, but that's not all... Riot has revealed that Call of the Mountain is part of a set.

For this particular collection of cards, three expansion releases make up one bigger, cohesive set. You might be familiar with this sort of structuring from other card games, and the roadmap ahead is particularly interesting. Take a look at the image below for a good look at how this set is being structured.

We haven't actually seen any cards yet, but I'm intrigued. The last expansion gave us all the pirates we could plunder with, and the Deep mechanic that creates giant sea monsters. I'm a big fan of the Deep deck, actually. With Call of the Mountain coming soon, I'm sure that card reveals aren't too far away. Check out the reveal trailer below, and check the official post for more details.

Funko Unveils Second Wave of PlayStation All-Stars

Funko Unveils Second Wave of PlayStation All-Stars

Hot on the heels of Funko's first PlayStation-themed series of Pops comes a second wave that highlights another four of Sony's most beloved gaming characters. Twisted Metal, The Last of Us, Ratchet & Clank, and Death Stranding are all featured in fun ways. All of these figures are exclusive to GameStop and will be available on October 5, yet can be preordered now.

Twisted Metal's representative should come as no surprise; it's Sweet Tooth complete with his ice cream truck and sinister mile. Given this figure's larger size, it retails for $29.99.

The Last of Us oddly gives us another sculpt for Joel rather than Ellie. Joel was also featured in Funko's first PlayStation line. This one is decidedly less bloody, and is the same sculpt with a different paint scheme.

Learn More About The Flashy And Powerful Guns You'll Use In Cyberpunk 2077

On the latest Night City Wire stream, we got more details on the types of guns and tools that will be at our disposal in Cyberpunk 2077.

As we learned previously, there are three distinct types: power, tech, and smart. Power weapons allow your bullets to ricochet off surfaces; tech use electromagnetic power, giving you the ability to punch through walls and cover; and smart weapons track targets in real-time as they're trying to dodge or run away from you. For some examples, a tech weapon like the Tsunami Nekomata is a chargeable semi-automatic that pierces through concrete like it's cardboard, while a TKI-20 Shingren uses burst fire and micro-guided missles so targets can't avoid your wrath.  

As you build your shooting skills up, you can expect to feel your mastery with increased accuracy, faster reloads, and better aiming.  In addition, you can adds attachments and software mods. Attachments, like scopes or silencers, often give you a stats or situational advantage. Software mods change stats pertaining to damage and accuracy, while also providing things like the ability to use biochemical rounds to tear through enemies' armor faster.

Here Are The Games Hitting This Week

With players still flocking to Fortnite, Apex Legends, and Call of Duty: Warzone, turning heads in the battle royale genre will be challenging, but Ubisoft believes it has just the game to do that in Hyper Scape. Yet another free-to-play title, Hyper Scape embraces verticality and high-tech gadgets to give it a much different flavor than the games of note.

If you don't jump into Hyper Scape or are looking for something a little different, you can always transform yourself into a tiny bug in Metamorphosis, or slice up demons of hell in Dying Light: Hellraid. Additionally, Double Kick Heroes on Switch looks like something fun and different with its music/action focus.

Let us know what you plan on playing this week in the comments section below:
August 11
Brunch Club (PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
Hyper Scape (PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC)
Prehistoric Dude (PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, PC)

Ready for more Doom Eternal? Hell's never done with you, is it? More is on the way. Today, Bethesda Softworks shared a short teaser trailer of what's to come, a campaign expansion known as The Ancient Gods. Ancient gods are typically bad news in video games.

They're usually really strong, really nasty, and have old grudges against things. This time I'm guessing we can tear an ancient god in half. Who knows. I bet it will be hardcore though. Anyway, you can check out the cool new teaser trailer below! The full reveal is scheduled to land during this year's (digital) Gamescom opener on August 27.

Suicide Squad Is Rocksteady Studios' Next Game

After completing work on the Batman: Arkham series of games in 2016 (the last game being Arkham VR), developer Rocksteady Studios has quietly worked on its next project, which has been rumored to be everything from a Superman project to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

The latest rumors circulating are that the Rocksteady is working on a game called Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. Today, Rocksteady has confirmed it is working on a Suicide Squad game, but the official title hasn't been revealed. The key art that came with the announcement puts Superman in the crosshairs, which could shed some truth to the rumored subtitle. We'll likely get the full name and more details when the game is officially unveiled on August 22 at DC FanDome, a 24-hour virtual fan experience.
