The Waylanders comes to Steam Early Access on June 16

The Waylanders is an intriguing party-based RPG from some of the people who helped make Dragon Age, Mass Effect, and Pillars of Eternity.

Arcane, the League of Legends animated series, is delayed into 2021

In October 2019, Riot Games announced Arcane, an animated series based on its lore-laden League of Legends MOBA.
