World of Warcraft's 8.2 patch will take players to a steampunk android gnome city

During Blizzcon 2018, World of Warcraft senior game designer Jeremy Feasel took the stage to reveal details about update 8.2, which won't arrive until well into 2019. Titled Rise of Azshara, this patch will see the Alliance and the Horde having to juggle their interfactional conflict to also deal with the rise of the naga threat led by none other than Queen Azshara herself. Oh, and in between all that we'll make a quick detour to a city full of steampunk android gnomes because this is Warcraft after all.

Blizzard reveals skins and concept art for Ashe, Overwatch's new hero

The arrival of Ashe, Overwatch's newest hero and former buddy of McCree, was announced at BlizzCon today. While she sports a similar western look to her high-noonin' frenemy, some concept art and skin designs revealed at a panel discussing what's next for Overwatch show some different sides of the outlaw. Our Overwatch expert Bo Moore was at the panel, and snapped up a few shots of Ashe's alternate looks and early concepts. He is very excited about all this and I'm happy for him. 

Fallout 76 supports ultrawide resolutions with a simple ini tweak

Fallout 76 supports ultrawide resolutions with a simple ini tweak

The second lengthier B.E.T.A. for Fallout 76 gave us enough time to dig into performance, graphics settings, and other tidbits. One of the things at the top of our list to confirm is whether ultrawide resolutions would work. To be clear, ultrawide resolutions are not listed in the game itself—only 16:9 and 16:10 aspect ratios showed up on my test system with a 21:9 display—the Acer XR382CQK bmijqphuzx, if you're curious. That's a FreeSync display with a 3840x1600 native resolution, so actually a bit wider than a strict 21:9 ratio. Having already discovered the INI files in the 'My Games\Fallout 76' folder, though, we knew where to start looking.

Rust now has hot air balloons and missiles that can shoot them down

Rust, the survival game where you start by banging a rock against a tree and then progress to crafting automatic weapons, has opened up a new mode of travel that lets you take to the skies: hot air balloons. You'll find them scattered around the map, and once they're fueled you can fly wherever the wind carries you. Balloons should hold about four or five passengers, making them the ideal way to soar above the defenses of a fort you'd like to raid.
