Civilization VI's Second Expansion Coming On Valentine's Day

Sid Meier’s Civilization VI: Gathering Storm is the next expansion in the long-running turn-based series about world domination. It offers nine new leaders, eight new civilizations, seven new world wonders, as well as a variety of new units, districts, buildings, and improvements.

The expansion also unleashes mother nature's wrath with new environmental effects and an ecosystem that responds to your choices. Your decisions could trigger world-ravaging natural disasters like floods, storms, and volcanoes. These aren't all bad though; once the devastation has past, these events allow the earth to flourish. Fans can expect extensions for the Technology and Civics trees with a future era, as well as two novel scenarios: Black Death and War Machine. 

Black Death features the titular plague which decimated European populations during the Middle Ages. Gathering Storm will task you with leading the effected countries, limiting the casualty count, and keeping the economy from collapsing.

Players have 10 days to take down Faba but only one chance to do it. Best of luck, would-be assassins.

Black Mesa: Xen Finishes The Half-Life Remake In A Stunning New Way

Black Mesa: Xen Finishes The Half-Life Remake In A Stunning New Way

Do you remember the original ending to Half-Life? Toward the end of the game, Gordon would go to Xen, a nice-looking skybox with a number of disconnected platforms that involved extensive use of the long jump module. It looked cool, but it was kind of one-note, and bore more of a resemblance to Super Mario 64's final worlds than anything from Half-Life's design until then. So when Black Mesa, a fan-made remake of Half-Life, got its last real build released, the developers didn't really focus on Xen and opted to leave it for later. It seems later is now, as the team behind the remake has released a trailer of what has become of Xen.

Rather than appending Xen to the game, the Black Mesa team of incredibly dedicated fans have expanded it to be a standalone multi-hour campaign set on the alien planet that so much of the game was leading up to. You can check out the trailer below and see what they mean.

The trailer is almost cut like a trailer to Doom, but definitely looks like an impressive effort from everyone involved. Xen seems more or less transformed into a major new area in the game. Not to run the comparison marathon forever, but there's shades of Metroid Prime in what the trailer shows, with a lot more colors than even that game.
