EA Play game subscription service now available on Steam, $4.99 per month
Were you interested in yet another subscription service for games, except that it only includes EA titles? If so, congratulations! You now have the ability to purchase an EA Play subscription for $4.99 per month ($29.99 per year), interestingly enough, on Steam.
Besides access to past games, you also get “exclusive rewards”, a 10% discount on all EA digital purchases, and up to 10 hours of access to new EA games.
Riot Games teases Tellstones: King’s Gambit board game
A new trailer and website from Riot Games teases an upcoming board game set in the League of Legends universe. Called Tellstones: King’s Gambit, the game does seem like a simple bluffing/memory game with some stone disks, which is why Riot will probably end up charging $99 for it.
I should mention that this isn’t Riot Games’ first foray into physical games: they released Mechs & Minions back in 2016.
Madden NFL 21’s 0.3 Metacritic user score might be the lowest ever
Sports gamers around the world are starting to realize that this year’s Madden NFL 21 title might just be like last year’s game except with more bugs, glitches, and slow menus. They’re mad, mad enough to bring the game’s Metacritic user score down to a paltry 0.3 (that’s out of 10).
Left 4 Dead 2 has a new community-created game mode: The Last Stand
While a 10-year old game getting a new game mode is certainly newsworthy, Valve’s Left 4 Dead 2: The Last Stand update is a bit more impressive for a different reason: it’s “created by the community, for the community”.
According to the Left 4 Dead 2 blog, “additional details will be coming soon.”
