Forza Horizon 4 is getting a free stunt racing update this week

Forza Horizon 4 is turning into Trackmania tomorrow, with the arrival of a free Horizon Super7 mode. The mode basically works like this: the Super7 event is comprised of seven user-created stunt-oriented courses, all chosen at random, and all skippable if they prove too hard (or low effort). You can also browse user-created courses, so assuming there's community uptake, you shouldn't be lacking new gauntlets to overcome.

"It’s like a missing link between immersive sims like Deus Ex and RPGs like Ultima 7 or Divinity: Original Sin 2—weird and liberating and driven by players' whims."

Hearthstone's reviled new reward system is getting a major overhaul

Hearthstone's new seasonal reward track and paid Tavern Pass has not gone over well with players. We dove into the details here, but the short version is that Blizzard said the new battle pass would absolutely not reduce gold rewards, and it did—and when Blizzard later apologized and boosted the gold outlay, it took away other rewards. It's fair to say the whole thing has been the kind of debacle that gives debacles a bad name.

AMD testing tasty new mobile GPUs to compete with Nvidia's top laptop chips

First hinted at by leaker Patrick Schur on Twitter, AMD has already been internally testing mobile SKUs based on the new RDNA 2 graphics architecture for a while. Now, joining the previously leaked discrete Navi 23 and Navi 24 mobile SKUs, it looks like a powerful big bro, the Navi 22 mobile gaming SKU, might indeed be a thing.
