VR games are on the precipice of being a huge market, but it feels like it lacks many key features and major game licenses. Luckily, the creators of Horizon Zero Dawn have been working hard to release a VR version of the game. Horizon: Call of the Mountain looks to create a thrilling new VR experience in the same setting as the previous games, though not quite on the same scale. Check out a detailed review over on GamingTrend.

In anticipation of the Minecraft 1.20 update, we have a bit more information about some of the additional content coming with the Sniffer from the mob vote. Mojang has stated that Archeology will be finally arriving in this update, allowing players to uncover secrets within the desert biome which will also be getting camel mounts. The update will also be released with an all new cherry blossom biome, with a new pink wood type and lovely aesthetic.


Civilization 7 In Development

Earlier today, Take-Two Interactive, the publisher of Civilization 6, announced the exciting news that Civilization 7 is currently in development. This eagerly anticipated sequel comes almost six years after the release of Civilization 6, which has sold more than 65 million copies to date. However, amidst this exciting announcement, Take-Two also shared that Jake Solomon, one of the lead directors and designers for XCOM and Marvel's Midnight Suns, will be leaving the company. It remains to be seen how this departure will impact the development of Civilization 7. Let's hope that the development of Civilization 7 will go smooth and continue to deliver the engaging gameplay and addictive strategy that players have come to love.
